Kent & Christie Glesener
Shofar International Foundation was established in 1996 by Kent and Christie Glesener. Asking God what was His plan and how can they could possibly fit in it, is when God's love and plan for Israel was revealed. Given the scripture, Isaiah 58:12:
“Those from among you will rebuild the ancient ruins;
You will raise up the age-old foundations;
And you will be called the repairer of the breach,
The restorer of the streets in which to dwell."
They believe they have heard God's Call to Sound the Shofar, to share God's love and support for Israel. They educate, prepare, train, and give opportunities to repair the Breach of our Hebrew biblical foundation through soup kitchens, medical with humanitarian aid, educational confernances, publications, dramatic arts, and TV programs to the Middle East, Europe, plus United States.
