Israelite Mission of the New Universal Covenant
Israelite Mission of the New Universal Covenant. A new movement in Peru, founded by Ezequiel Ataucuzi Gamonal. As a result of what he claims were divine revelations, Ezequiel considers himself called to lead God's chosen people to a new obedience to the Mosaic law. By the early 1960s, a group of followers were meeting in Lima, and after legal recognition in 1969, the movement spread rapidly throughout Peru.
