Answer: No one! No one can live in it besides the Jewish people, but on the condition they are united.
It is written in the books of Kabbalah that we received the opportunity to be here, to gather together and become one people. If we are divided and not internally connected with each other, we are not a people.
Question: Israel is home to a lot of people who are not Jewish according to Halacha. Are they my brothers or not?
Answer: I will give you a very simple definition of whom it is possible to call a Jew.
“Jew” is from the word “Ivry” – “Ever,” which means to cross over. Anyone who moves from hatred to love, from a feeling of our world to the feeling of the upper world, is called a Jew.
“Israel” (Isra-el) means straight to the Creator, the system of higher management. Those who are directed toward it are called Israelis.
“Jew” is from the word “Ichud,” connection, unity.
Therefore all the people who study in our group—Mexicans, Chileans, Americans, Turks, Arabs, Russians, French, Germans—if they are directed toward the Creator, they stand under the banner of Abraham as in ancient Babylon, connecting among themselves beyond all the differences; they are called Israel.
Question: So, all of your students a priori are Jews?
Answer: They are the most Jewish Jews in the world! And those who aren’t directed toward the Creator, according to the spiritual definition, are not Jews and not Israelis.
In all times, many non-Jewish came to study the wisdom of Kabbalah. Before the destruction of the Second Temple (Beit HaMikdash) many people from the nations of the world joined us, so all the Israelites were in attainment of the upper world, not to mention the kings of Israel.
And King David and the future Messiah, the son of David, were descendants of a non-Jewish woman, a Moabite.
The entire political system in ancient Israel was constructed not by a Jew, but by Jethro, the father-in-law of Moses. This means that, according to Halacha, the children of Moses were also not Jews.
If you refuse to accept the true definition in relation to the Creator and higher attainment, you can conduct all kinds of genetic tests. That is your business.
However, now we have come to a situation that, whether we want it or not, the entire world will become connected, which is to say that everyone will be directed toward the Creator, as it is written, “…for they shall all know Me from their smallest to their greatest” (Jeremiah 31:33).
Only those who feel the desire for a higher world, the Creator, to unite with each other, who have the question of the meaning of life, would be allowed to go to the land of Israel. That is the main question.
Baal HaSulam writes that a person who yearns for the truth, for the source, for the wisdom of Kabbalah, is one who asks himself, “What is the meaning of life?” There is a place here specifically for such people. The others just came here to be in one place and are necessary to create a group, as did Abraham. After all, we are gathered as one people according to ideological principles.
So, if we were to examine all the Jews in relation to the ancient Babylonians, it would follow that you were from one tribe, I was from another people, a third was from some other family, etc. We are all different.
