Aliyah from India - update Bnei Menashe

With G-d’s help – and the support of Christians for Israel! – we were blessed to bring another 240 Bnei Menashe on Aliyah from India to Israel between June 18 and June 25, 2015. This brings to 900 the total number of Bnei Menashe that we have brought home to Zion in the past 18 months, the most ever!!

Thank G-d, the 240 immigrants are all doing well. They are currently staying at the Shavei Israel Absorption Center based at Kfar Hasidim, near Haifa, where they are studying Hebrew, preparing for their formal return to Judaism, and learning about life in Israel.

In a sign of the Israeli government’s support for Shavei Israel’s work with the Bnei Menashe, we were able to arrange for both the new Absorption Minister, Zev Elkin, and the new Interior Minister, Silvan Shalom, to come to Ben Gurion Airport and personally greet the immigrants! 

For a lovely story and moving video about the Interior Minister’s welcome to the Bnei Menashe immigrants, see: Indeed, the Minister was so moved by the experience, that he announced to Israeli journalists that he would move to bring more Bnei Menashe to Israel. 

Thank you again for all of your prayers, encouragement and support. I really do believe that our partnership in this holy endeavor is something that brings great joy to our Father in Heaven, as Jews and Christians join together to bring home a Lost Tribe of Israel.

May we continue to witness – and participate in - many more such miracles!! 

Thanks, and G-d bless, 

Michael Freund
Chairman, Shavei Israel
