Yes, ALL Yisrael will be saved! Their salvation arises from Abraham. And none of his offspring will be lost, but I wouldn't speak about the likes of Judas Iscariot. I know that mainstream Christianity assumes they have replaced Yisrael. I regret to announce that that is an error. See Romans 11:25-29. "As far as the gospel is concerned, they are enemies on your account; but as far as election is concerned, they are loved on account if the patriarchs, 29 for God's gifts and call are irrevocable." Zechariah 9:11. Zechariah 12:10-14. Micah 7:18-20. Micah 4:1-2. Jeremiah 31:34-37. Isaiah 27:8-9. Joel 3:20-21. Yes, ALL Yisrael will be saved. On account of the patriarchs. Praise God and bless His Holy Name. Bless.
In my opinion they are the chosen people and at the end of the age the scales will fall from their eyes to see whom they have pierced and once rejected.

Since the calling of Abraham, The Hebrews, Israel the Jews have been God's chosen people. According to Romans 9:6 There is a profound difference between Israel after the flesh and spiritual Israel. "Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel:" Romans 9:7 "Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called." Romans 11:5 "Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace." In Revelation 6:7-8, 1/4th of the earth's population will be killed. In Revelation 7 the remnant of Israel, God's servants who will preach the gospel during the great tribulation is sealed. There are 12,000 from each of the 12 tribes, a total of 144,000.
I will use my exposition of Isaiah 27 to answer this question. Isaiah 27 which speaks of the purge which God shall visit on Israel as a means of requiting their sin before he finally comes to the recue and Christ shall reign. 27:1-5 God speaks of preserving Leviathan for his purposes. Leviathan is a great beast which scholars have understood as symbolically referring the enemy of God's people who God will use to purge the guilt of His people Israel. Historically God has often used pagan kings to devastate and destroy Israel and deport the people to foreign lands. He used Senacherib, Cyrus, Nebuchadnezzar among many other kings of ancient dynasties to purge the sins of Israel. He will do this once more before Christ comes to reign as King and Messiah in Jerusalem. 27:6 speaks of the prosperity of Israel, perhaps economically technologically and militarily, a fact we see today about modern Israel. No serious Bible scholar would fail to see the advancement of modern Israel as a re-enactment of the final scene of the end-times whose script will shortly roll out in full. 27:7 seems to describe the measure of punishment that God would visit on Israel. The rhetorical question here is not answered but does seem to suggest that God will severely deal with Israel almost in the same way that he will finally strike a blow upon their tormentors. This is a very unusual way to deal with Israel but God will do this to satisfy His divine purposes. 27:8 confirms that there will be a dispersal, perhaps a disruption of normal daily life. Could this be the description contemplated in Matt 24:15-23? This could suggest that the Jews could be dispersed from present day Israel by the antichrist forces as millions seek refuge away from the Holy Land. (cf. Zechariah 14:5-21). This does seem to describe the scene but again time will bring all things to bear as God decisively executes his purposes. 27:9-12 describes the desolation following the purge on Israel (cf. Daniel 11:40-45). This is unprecedented yet God will perform what He seeks to accomplish. Israel has suffered many devastations with the last memorable disaster being the murder of 6million Jews under Nazi Germany in 1938-1945. What is about to play out would perhaps be more devastating than the holocaust. Why does God choose to do this? We may never fully know. 27:11 shows that God shall withhold his mercy until the purge is completed. This means the Jews will suffer according to God's divine purposes. This explains why such scale of devastation is permitted on them. 27:12-13 describes the restoration of Israel. There will be great redemption for the Jews and true worship will be restored in Jerusalem. This passage could be describing the great tribulation that will fall upon Israel and the restoration under Messianic rule (cf. Matthew 24; Daniel 11; John 17:12; 2 Thess 2:3). The difficult question now follows: Will the Jews be saved by this purge alone, or will they have to believe on Christ to be saved in the same way that Gentiles do? My guess is that the stubborn Jews will finally turn to Jesus whom they had pierced and be redeemed by His shed blood in the same way that the Gentile. In Zechariah 12:10 Godsays "And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn" The difference is that the Jews will be severely punished for their unbelief and the remnant will turn to Christ after the desolation when he steps on the Mount of Olives (Zech.14:4). Sadly millions of Jews will have been killed (two thirds of those living then). So what becomes of Jews who reject Christ now? I am aware that this is a difficult question but my view is that the same fate that befalls the Gentiles applies to them.
Q: "How will the Jews be judged when Jesus returns?" A: Justly. The questioner should ask himself, "Do I believe G-d is ONLY good ALL the time?"
