S1 EP39 | Compelled to Dwell – Moving Back to Israel Today

Maybe you’ve heard about it, maybe not. It’s called “aliyah,” and Jewish people from all over the world are doing it. What’s up with that?  Immigration is nothing new. Some people shift about the world, permanently making a new country their home. But there’s something unique about immigration to Israel. In this episode of A Jew and A Gentile Discuss, Carly and Ezra fill you in on the fascinating phenomenon of aliyah, Jewish immigration to Israel. They discuss: What the Hebrew word aliyah means and where the concept came from How aliyah is related to biblical references to God scattering the Jewish people Qualifications for immigration to Israel If Jewish believers in Jesus can immigrate to Israel Where Jewish people are coming from to make Israel their home If non-Jewish people who love Israel can immigrate there Why it’s important for listeners to understand and care about aliyah Along the way As they discuss, Ezra shares interesting details and sidenotes that give you a fuller understanding of all things aliyah, including: Wait, what? Israel doesn’t have a constitution? What going to the ancient Temple and reading a Torah passage in synagogue today have in common God’s faithfulness to His covenant and promises The job descriptions of the prophets Isaiah and Jeremiah How a person’s Jewishness is determined for immigration to Israel Israel’s Supreme Court and their involvement in aliyah decisions A curious aspect about the Israeli definition of “missionary” Why Orthodox Jews consider Messianic Jews a threat Words you might learn in this episode Aliyah, “the Jewish State,” Zionist leaders, parashiot, parasha, “making aliyah,” diaspora, Messianic Jews, olim Scriptures referenced in this episode Genesis 17:8, Genesis 26:1–6, Genesis 28:10–15, 2 Timothy 2:13, Jeremiah 29:14   ◦◦◦   Want more discussions?
