Worship Leader Sean Feucht Heads to Columbia University Thursday for ‘United for Israel March’

As anti-Israel protestors occupy New York City’s Columbia University, pro-Israel Christians are planning to hold a worship event there on Thursday evening in a show of solidarity with Jewish students.

Worship leader Sean Feucht announced the upcoming “March for Israel,” which also will feature Christian author and radio show host Eric Metaxas and Russell Johnson, pastor of Pursuit NW, a church with multiple campuses in Washington state.

The event which will begin at 6:30 p.m. Eastern time, comes days after radical pro-Hamas protestors took over the campus. The violence and threats have been so significant that the college has switched to a hybrid learning model for the rest of the year, allowing students to attend classes virtually. Also, a campus rabbi warned Jewish students not to return to the school because of “extreme antisemitism.”

Metaxas commented on X, “This happened in Germany in the 30s… are the parallels becoming clear enough for you?”

Feucht wrote in a social media post, “There are moments in history where the world is waiting for voices of courage, conviction and clarity to arise – THIS IS ONE OF THOSE MOMENTS!” He added, “Word is spreading like lightning across America. Folks are making plans and taking planes, buses and trains to join us.”

On Monday, Feucht posted a video of Shai Davidai, an assistant professor who is Jewish, trying to access a part of campus that has been taken over by the protestors. Columbia COO Cas Holloway, who was filmed standing outside a university gate along with police, denied Davidai access.

Feucht shared a screenshot of an email saying that the sender, Robin, and her husband had paid more than $500,000 in tuition for their two children to attend Columbia University and are making plans to fly from Tampa, Florida, to attend the rally Thursday. “We are disgusted by what is happening and feel the need to be there,” she wrote.


Feucht on Monday shared a video highlighting the “demonic madness” of the protests.

On Sunday, Feucht first mentioned the idea of a worship rally at the university. He shared a video showing protestors at Columbia chanting phrases including: “Oh Al-Qassam brigades, you make us proud, kill another soldier now!” “Israel will fall!” “Palestine is Arab!” “Zionism will fall!”

“Who would be down for a worship rally on Columbia University to replace this nonsense they are spewing now?!?” Feucht said.

Feucht, who has held worship events in war-torn hot spots around the world for many years, climbed into American Christians’ consciousness when he began holding large outdoor worship rallies in U.S. cities that had been shut down by COVID-19 restrictions in 2020. In addition to inviting the Holy Spirit into hostile and hopeless situations, the “Let Us Worship” concerts highlighted the hypocrisy of officials who allowed Black Lives Matter to riot and loot stores without fear of punishment while banning churches from holding services.
