Descendants of King David to Meet in Jerusalem

The Jerusalem Post reported recently on an amazing meeting coming up soon. A meeting of the descendants of King David are getting together in Jerusalem in May of next year.

They say they are descendants of King David. They have the oral family traditions, rabbinic texts and historical research to back up their claims. And the way Jewish genealogy is thriving, their ranks may swell in the coming years.

Davidic Dynasty, a project of the Eshet Chayil Foundation, has compiled a partial list of David’s purported descendants. Their get-together, to be held at the Museum of Jewish Heritage, will honor Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau and Rebbetzin Esther Jungreis – both of whom are believed to be descended from David.

DNA and genetic testing has jumped across the Holocaust to connect families living today with their ancestors. Amazing.
