“That then the LORD thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the peoples, whither the LORD thy God hath scattered thee. If any of thine that are dispersed be in the uttermost parts of heaven, from thence will the LORD thy God gather thee, and from thence will He fetch thee.” Deuteronomy 30:3-4 (The Israel Bible™)
In an End-of-Days prophetic fulfillment, the last group of Yemenite Jews were brought to Israel in a covert rescue mission that literally snatched them out of a raging war zone.
The Jewish Agency for Israel announced Sunday night that the final group of Jews from war-torn Yemen landed safely in Israel. Their arrival signifies the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy which tells of an ingathering of the exiles that presages the Messianic era.
The group included nineteen people, fourteen of whom come from the town of Raydah and another family of five from Sanaa. Also on the flight were the wife and children of Aharon Zindani whose remains were brought to Israel for burial in the Holy Land.
No less significant was the 500 year old Torah carried by the community’s rabbi, an irreplaceable part of their heritage.
This concludes the covert operations that have brought approximately 200 Yemenite Jews to Israel in the last few years, an effort that included the Israeli Foreign Ministry, and the US State Department, among others.
Executive Chairman of The Jewish Agency for Israel Natan Sharansky said in a statement: “This is a highly significant moment in the history of Israel and of Aliyah. From Operation Magic Carpet in 1949 until the present day, the Jewish Agency has helped bring Yemenite Jewry home to Israel. Today we bring that historic mission to a close. This chapter in the history of one of the world’s oldest Jewish communities is coming to an end, but Yemenite Jewry’s unique, 2,000-year-old contribution to the Jewish people will continue in the State of Israel.”
