In Joshua chapter 13, the allotment for each of the 12 tribes of Israel are given. My question, is when G-d dwells from Jerusalem (Jeremiah 33:17-18), and establishes his chosen king, Moshiach (Jeremiah 23:5), will each individual Jewish person have their own personal allotment of land? Would each individual person, for example, be given "X" amount of acres of land to build, plant or farm on?

  • @ShmuelBrin Why area of Israel / 2? – Scimonster May 5 '15 at 13:35
  • @ShmuelBrin But then you should probably also include part of Lebanon. If you do that, then it just about equals the area if Israel. And besides, i don't think the Negev is actually half of Israel's territory. – Scimonster May 5 '15 at 18:05
  • @ShmuelBrin That may be, but i'm pretty sure that some of that territory is halachic E"Y. – Scimonster May 5 '15 at 18:33

In יְחֶזְקֵאל chapter 47 you can read about how the land of Israel will be redivided into 13 portions, once Moshiach comes.

Each tribe will get a portion. Converts will also be allocated a portion, based on which tribe coverted them.

The extra 13th portion is for the Cohen Gadol, Cohanim, Leviim and Bet Hamikdash.
