Bringing Them Home – an Update on the B’nei Menashe Aliyah

Recently we sent out an urgent request for funds by email and telephone. Without our help the entire aliyah (Jewish immigration) from India was at risk. An ultimatum was issued from the Ministry of Interior: “Bring the next group by the middle of February or we will stop the entire aliyah.” Our friend, Michael Freund of Shavei Israel was missing $100,000 dollars, and Christians gave. The next group was able to arrive in Israel as scheduled! 

Michael has a goal of bringing another 600 Jews home from India this year and is asking for our help. Families are currently divided. Parents and children separated by thousands of miles (kilometers). Their financial lack makes it impossible for them to make aliyah without help. But thanks to the generosity of our donors, the program will continue and families will be reunited. With our ongoing support, Shavei Israel will meet its goal this year as Christians extend a loving, helping hand to this “lost” tribe of Israel.
