The only way of salvation for Jews is to accept the Bahá'í Faith

The only way of salvation for Jews is to accept the Bahá'í Faith. (The Guardian of the Bahai Faith - Shoghi Effendi)

The Bahá'ís should certainly Endeavour to establish further contacts with your Jewish fellow-citizens, as their spiritual destiny is assuredly very bright. The age-long sufferings and tribulations which the Jews all over the world have so cruelly experienced will be terminated during the Bahá'í era, as they will be gradually led to embrace the Faith which, indeed, constitutes the only means of salvation to their race." (Letter of Shoghi Effendi to an individual believer, September 22, 1937)

When Baha'u'llah first proclaimed himself, the Jewish communities in the East converted en mass overnight because they saw that Baha'u'llah was that they had been eagerly awaiting.

The Baha'i Faith was favorably received by large sections of the Persian peoples, it was hailed by Persian Jews as their salvation...Persian Jews were seized by a profound enthusiasm and admiration for [Baha'u'llah and] their new faith...

The Jewish populations of Hamadan, Isfahan, Tehran, Kashan and 75% or more of the Jews of Gulpaygan converted into the Baha'i Faith en masse having recognized Baha'u'llah as the New Manifestation of our age.

During one of the Talks at pilgrim house in Haifa the Late Hands of Cause Mr. Ali Akbar Furutan said to the pilgrims that “not teaching to the Jews in the Holy Land is only a temporary measure very soon full scale teaching will start."
