Watch Ricky Skaggs Perform “The Blessing” Israel!

With recent unrest throughout the Middle East, we’ve seen a shocking uptick in global antisemitism. Now more than ever, it’s vital that Christians stand in solidarity with our Jewish neighbors.

Dozens of college students and Passages alumni dedicated to Christian-Jewish allyship joined together to record “The Blessing,” by Kari Jobe and Elevation Worship. This song is based on the priestly blessing from Numbers 6:24-26, a spiritually significant passage for both the Christian and Jewish faiths. The students were soon joined by renowned Israeli artists, along with a number of American celebrities, to produce a moving rendition of “The Blessing” promoting unity and solidarity between Christians and Jews.
