BNEI MENASHE: Watch the Video - A LOST TRIBE RETURNS HOME FROM MANIPUR, INDIA

Over several days in mid-November last year, Ps Abe and Deepa led a team from Kochi to be helpers with the latest group of Bnei Menashe to make aliyah from Manipur in north-eastern India to Israel via Delhi and Taskent, Uzbekistan. This group aliyah is being facilitated and coordinated by Michael Freund of Shavei Israel. EOE is partnering in the project by way of both practical help and finances.

Boarding in Delhi: it was really a privilege to assist the Bnei Menashe and we found out and experienced the challenge! It was not at all easy! The local contacts of Shavei are really requesting us to help them in assisting. We needed at least 3 people to fly with them to help. Because out of 82 who now made this first flight, most of them are seeing a city like Delhi and the Airport etc for the very first time. Just 2-3 of them people speak English and also not even Hindi. They speak only their local language. So to get them through immigration and security to the gates and to the boarding was so challenging! Three of us had a good  time and it was a great privilege that we could assist them with great joy and pleasure!
