Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett addressed the UN General Assembly on Monday. He also remarked that Israel is the current embodiment of the Bible saying: “Israel is a nation of great hope, a nation that’s brought the heritage of the Torah to life in modern-day Israel.”
Bennett was likely referring to Jeremiah’s prophecy which states that following the exile, the nation of Israel will return to its land:
And there is hope for your future —declares Hashem: Your children shall return to their country. (Jeremiah 31:16)
During his speech, the Israeli premier touched on the historic connection between the Ancient Israelites and modern-day Israel saying: “We are an ancient nation returned to our ancient homeland, revived our ancient language, restored our ancient sovereignty.”
“Israel is a miracle of Jewish revival the nation of Israel is alive and the state of Israel is its beating heart.”
Bennett also recalled a lesson from the Oral Law saying: “The ancient Jewish texts the Talmud says; whoever saves one life is as if he saved an entire world.”
