Nothing is more powerful than witnessing the unfolding redemption of Jews returning to their homeland, Israel. The return to Jerusalem, especially those neighborhoods like the Old Jewish Quarter, today known as the Muslim Quarter is a testament to veracity of Biblical Prophecies now occurring in our life time. Yet, these prophecies are not miracles in the open sense, but rather are reflected in the decisions many are taking to reclaim Jewish property in the Old City.
These pioneers, primarily supported by Ateret Cohanim, are on the fronlines of the unfolding Redemption in the heart of the Old City of Jerusalem.
Why does this area of Jerusalem matter?
Because these are the streets that the prophet Zecharia speaks about when he says: “And the squares of the city shall be crowded with boys and girls playing in the squares.”
Every house that is returned and reclaimed is a house that reflects the Jewish people’s return to their homeland. In a very real way Jerusalem’s Land Reclamation pioneers are helping to secure the Jewish furure in their ancient capital – blocking moves by Jordan, Turkey, and even Russia from establishing a lasting foothold in the capital.
Many of these pioneers are returning to neighborhoods once Jewish that were pushed out through the multiple Arab riots on the 1920’s, 1930s, and ultimately 1948.
Reversing the years of neighborhoods being off limits to Jews in the capital is not only a political endeaor, but a project that furthers Zionism and Jewish connection to the ongoing and unfloding Redemption.
