First Batch of 250 Members of 'Lost Tribe' Arrive in Israel


A group of 40 Bnei Menashe arrived in Israel, Thursday, from India, the first batch out of a total of 250 immigrants from the Lost Tribe that are slated to arrive over the coming month. The immigrants, who hail from the northeastern Indian state of Manipur, were brought to Israel by Shavei Israel, which received permission from the Israeli government last October to bring 900 Bnei Menashe to the Jewish state by 2015.
