Let's say that 60,000 Jews heard Jesus speak during his years of ministry. I think that's a fair estimate.
That means that 99% of the Jews in the world never heard him.
So if they rejected him, it was passive, because they didn't know who he was.
As for Me, this is My covenant with them," says the LORD: "My Spirit who is on you, and My words that I have put in your mouth, will not depart from your mouth, or from the mouth of your children, or from the mouth of your children's children, from now on and forever," says the LORD.
