What if, instead of 15 or 16 million, there were actually hundreds of millions, or even several billion people in the Nation of Israel? That’s the vision underlying the upcoming Commonwealth of Israel (COI) Reconciliation Conference scheduled for May 21-23 at the Jerusalem Cinematheque.

From where will all these additional people come? While organizations such as Shavei Israel are working on identifying lost Jews, the coordinators of the COI conference believe that the descendants of the Ten Lost Tribes, who were exiled from northern Israel over 2,700 years ago by the Assyrians, are currently waking up to their true identities and seeking a way to return home to Israel.
