Shalom to everyone,
I am pasting a link below to Rav Nachman Kahana’s Parsha commentary which deals with the issue of the Ten Tribes and their return (make sure to scroll down to the section:Who will populate Eretz Yisrael in the future.
A few things you need to understand about Rav Nachman Kahana. He is a very serious, true Talmudic scholar who is renowned for his published works. He is not just some Rabbi of an American synagogue – he is very highly regarded here in Israel within the Dati Leumi (‘Religious Zionist’) community. Rav Kahana came on Aliyah shortly after the 6 Day War of 1967 and has been essential in the registry of Kohanim here. He is the brother of my teacher (and most significant Jewish influence on my life) Rav Meir Kahane (yeah, they spelled their last name differently), who was assassinated by Al Qaeda in NYC in 1990; may HaShem avenge his blood. That was the first act of Islamic terrorism in the United States, although it certainly won’t be the last…
I cannot stress to you the significance of a Rav of his stature to write what he has written. HOWEVER, please don’t jump to any conclusions about any Rabbinical bodies here in Israel and/or the government of Israel. Rav Kahana still doesn’t know about who you are; but this is a HUGE step in the right direction. I would love to keep writing more about it and its implications – and I will as part of a full article. I expect to have something out to you on this very soon. Wishing y’all much Shalom!
