Returning to Israel

The Vilna Gaon brought down a kabballa that all parshaiot in the book of Devarim represent a different century between the years 5000 and 6000. It works out that Nitzavim which prophecies our return to Israel falls in the century 5700-800 when we have infact returned on mass to Eretz Yisrael!

In addition, the pasuk in Nitzavim which contains this prophecy is Ch30 Vs5 “Hashem, your Gd, will bring you to the land of which your forefathers took possession and you shall take possession of it; He will do good to you and make you more numerous than your forefathers” This pasuk is the 5708 verse in the torah. If you translate this into years the Jewish year 5708 is the year 1948.
