It’s perhaps the most rapid demographic shift in history. Some would even call it miraculous.
Within only a few generations, Jews scattered around the world have reassembled into a nation in their ancient biblical homeland of Israel. One Israeli in the new film “I Am Israel” marvels that there were only around 60,000 Jews in what is now Israel at the turn of the last century, compared to more than 6 million today.
As Breaking Israel News notes, the global population of Jews outside Israel has decreased from 1945 to today, while the number of Jews within Israel has dramatically increased. Today, 43 percent of the global Jewish population now resides in Israel. If current trends continue, the majority of the world’s Jewish population will soon reside in Israel.
