Meshichist is one of the Religions practiced in After the End. Meshichist is part of the Jewish religious group and is considered a heresy of Orthodox.
"Meshichists believe that a legendary pre-Event rabbi, known to them as simply "the Rebbe", was the Moshiach - the Jewish Messiah. Mainstream Jews reject this view, pointing out that the Rebbe has been dead for centuries - a condition that would normally disqualify him from being the Moshiach. Nevertheless Meshichists remain steadfast in their belief that the Rebbe was-- and is-- the Moshiach, believing that he is still alive in a metaphorical sense. Meshichists frequently recite the Yechi an affirmation of their belief in a living "King Messiah", at prayer services and during holidays." ― In-Game description of Meshichist
The history of the Jewish faith is long, and often filled with troubles. Their history in America is no different. To add to this, Meshichism was a fairly small movement to begin with, and very few (if any) follow the faith today.
