Shoghi Effendi’s sayings regarding teaching of Jews

"Regarding your question concerning the future of the Jews: They certainly have, as explicitly stated by the Master, a great spiritual destiny, and will gradually enter the Faith in large groups."
(From a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi to an individual believer, November 13, 1937, Lights of Guidance, no. 1681)

"...You should certainly Endeavour to establish further contacts with your Jewish fellow-citizens, as their spiritual destiny is assuredly 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."
(From a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi to an individual believer, September 22, 1937, Lights of Guidance, no. 1817)

"...If the Jews study the teachings they will find in them the hopes and aspirations that they have always cherished. Bahá'u'lláh bears a wonderful message to the Jews and many of them have come to appreciate it and are active in carrying it to others of their race. Through Bahá'u'lláh, the Master tells us, they shall regain their ancient glory and become loved by all the people of the whole world."
(From a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi to an individual believer, June 14, 1932, Lights of Guidance, no. 1818)

There are also some pilgrim's notes which speak to their having a special role in the future as administrators, protecting/championing the Faith in the Holy Land, etc. Moreover International Teaching counselor Mr. Ayman Rohani and Mr. Bijan Farid during their visit to an Asian country in 2008 have clarified that, very soon the teaching activities will start in the Holy Land of Israel. In fact it has already started in one of the University of Israel. The present House of Justice Member Mr. Payman Mohajer has also assured the Bahá'is that Universal House of Justice has made elaborate plans to teach in the Holy Land.

As Jew Bahá'is we are sure that once the teaching activities will start in our Holy Land, the progress of the Faith in Israel will become an example for the whole World.

Muhammad the forerunner of the Bab and bahaullahullah exterminated the jews of Median as soon as he put his ugly foot there
