(BREAKING ISRAEL NEWS) -- In a historic first, the Israeli government is moving forward with a plan to reconnect with tens of millions of people that apparently have Jewish ancestry. Such a project may not only drastically change the demographics of Israel but also bring about a prophecy in Obadiah suggesting that these people will fill up the Negev region in southern Israel, paving the way for the Messiah.
A committee appointed by Israel’s Diaspora Affairs ministry submitted a report on Sunday that said there are approximately 60 million people around the world with an unrecognized affinity to Judaism or Israel. The committee found that among them are communities that could be brought to Israel and converted to Judaism. The committee’s recommendations call for reaching out to these communities and introducing them to content related to Israel and Judaism.
