1.000 American Christian Zionists are ready to undergo Orthodox Jewish conversion, and settle in Samaria.
About 1,000 Americans have signed a document requesting to convert to Judaism, move to Israel, and settle in Samaria.
The group members are seeking to serve in the IDF and later establish communities based on the Kibbutz movement model.
The document was presented to Yisrael Beiteinu Knesset Member Lia Shemtov, who met with the group’s representative last week and promised to offer her help in facilitating the initiative.
The Christian group’s representative, Baruch Abramovich, said he was hopeful that MK Shemtov would be able to elicit the government’s support for the initiative. The Christian group seeks to purchase land in Samaria, and Abramovich says that in Missouri alone a community of some 400 people is already keeping the Shabbat.
“They manage collective kibbutz life and aspire to create such community in Samaria, or in any area that would like to absorb people who truly love Israel and the Jewish religion,” he said.
“We are dealing with people who wish to undergo Orthodox conversion, contribute to the economy, and even to serve in the IDF.”
Officials at the Samaria Regional council confirmed that they were approached about the initiative, but noted that according to the Law of Return, only Jews can move to Israel and receive citizenship.
“If families from this group undergo proper conversion and move to Israel in line with the Law of Return, we’ll of course be happy to welcome them in Samaria,” one official said.
This strange story expose the persecution Jews who loves Jesus are facing. They are not suppose to live in Israel, and have problems getting Israeli citizenship.
That Christian Zionists want to convert to Orthodox Judaism and move to Israel, is an example of the confusion that has entered into this branch of Christianity.
That people who claim to know Jesus is willing to renounce Him, and join the spiritual blind Orthodox Jews is a disgrace. We have to keep on praying for Orthodox Jews because they act in ignorance and disbelief. But those who leave the Messiah will face stern judgment.
If anyone is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.
We have to give thanks to Jesus for His promise to shorten the days of great tribulation on Earth. If not, none of us will be able to survive.
