Kirk Douglass, the actor, became a Ba'al Teshuvah in 1991 when he was 75 years old. I guess he was an exception to the 70 year rule.


By the way, if you study Ya'akov Avinu's blessing of Yehudah very carefully, he tells Yehudah that the Malkhut of his scion will age like fine wine from the finest tendril flowing from Iro, which can mean his foal or his City (Yerushalayim). From Bereishit 49:

יא אֹסְרִי לַגֶּפֶן עִירֹה, וְלַשֹּׂרֵקָה בְּנִי אֲתֹנוֹ; כִּבֵּס בַּיַּיִן לְבֻשׁוֹ, וּבְדַם-עֲנָבִים סוּתֹה. 11 Binding his foal (or City) unto the vine, and his ass's colt unto the choice vine or tendril; he washeth his garments in wine, and his vesture in the blood of grapes;
יב חַכְלִילִי עֵינַיִם, מִיָּיִן; וּלְבֶן-שִׁנַּיִם, מֵחָלָב. {פ} 12 His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk.

This seems to mean that Mashiach will come riding on his jackass into Yerushalayim in the number of years that it takes grape juice to age into fine wine (70 years), that is 70 years from when the flag of the lowly state is raised in Tzion and Yerushalayim. This is my take on it. Yours might be different.

Notice it says son of his jackass, not just his jackass. This means that again this planting of the choice vine (the S'reikah) was 70 years earlier at the founding of the State, knowing that the colt of the jackass would actually benefit from it... kind of like those carob trees that were planted 70 years earlier.
