Watch: Bnei Menashe Arrive in Israel

6

Arutz Sheva reports that 225 members of the Bnei Menashe community from the state of Manipur in northeast India will complete their aliyah through Shavei Israel this week.

Upon their arrival in Israel, the immigrants will move to the absorption center in Kfar Hasidim, and upon completion of the absorption process will move to the Galilee.

The Bnei Menashe community in India sees itself as descendants of the shevet of Menasheh, one of the ten shevatim that were expelled from the Land of Israel more than 2,700 years ago by the Assyrian Empire. Members of the community speak a language which belongs to a family of Sino- Tibetan languages ​​spoken in northeastern India, where most of the Bnei Menashe live – in addition to eastern Bangladesh and western Burma.

  1. I don’t understand how pple can so ignorantly say these are goyim. Har sinai had so many neshamos present saying naase venishma… we have a long history of exile. So many things are unknown to us; if they megayer themselves al pi halacha how can we talk? They are so temimusdig; I don’t think I always remember to kiss the mezuza like they do. May hkbh be the ultimate dayan and may we learn to see the good and judge good.
