The “ingathering of the exiles,” known in Hebrew as kibbutz galuyot (קיבוץ גלויות), is promised in multiple places throughout the Bible. Although they are scattered throughout the four corners of the earth, Yechezkel declares that one day, God will gather the People of Israel and return them to their ancient soil, the Land of Israel. For centuries, Jews have been praying three times daily for the fulfillment of this prophecy in their central prayer, known as the amidah. With the establishment of the State of Israel and the many waves of immigration that have taken place in recent history, we are fortunate to witness the beginning of the fulfillment of this tremendous miracle.

  • This is a beautiful, hopeful passage. We see it happening today, but I wonder would there be room enough for all to return. Does the final in gathering only come when Messiah returns and all the land is given back?
