The theory of metaclans is a result of an extensive, 10 years long, empirical study of the life of Jewish clans. Within the study, factual material on the history of 63 different Jewish clans in the span of up to 950 years was investigated.
The theory of the metaclans claims that the above regularities lead to the preservation of the character of the Jewish People throughout all its history. The existence of these regularities implies that every Jewish family, like the entire Jewish People, has its unique calling.
The above view opens a new page in the understanding of the mechanisms behind the unique history of the Jewish People. The research constitutes an attempt of deciphering the message encoded in the very existence of the Jewish People.
Following the research publication, the authors have been awarded “Zeiti Yerushalaim” prize for the contribution to the national heritage and its development.
The theory of metaclans in described in more detail in the paper The Jewish People as a phenomenon of historical longevity: On the theory of meta-clans and the principles of survival.
Project was launched in 2006 and it is currently active.
