Marc Chopinsky has passed away

We just received word that Messianic music pioneer and Israeli Messianic leader Marc Chopinsky has passed away.


Marc was a founding member of Israel’s Hope, a 1980s Messianic band that produced hits like Shalom Jerusalem, He Shall Reign, Say to the Daughter of Zion. He also produced music with his Israeli congregation Tents of Mercy, with hits like Kol Yisrael Yivasha and dozens more that we still worship with at modern Messianic congregations in Israel and the nations. (At my congregation, nearly every Shabbat we play his music!)

Pray for Marc’s family as they mourn the loss of this holy man of God, husband, father, and Messianic pioneer in Israel and the nations, Marc Chopinsky. May his memory be a blessing.


  1. This is sad news. I just met him in Chicago at the UMJC conference a year ago. He was kind and humble. May his memory be for a blessing, and may his family find comfort in the Lord.

  2. I knew Marc before he became a Messianic Jew and have not seen him since, which is over 45 years ago. But even then he was a gentle soul. I wish his family peace and happiness.
