The Bnei Menashe tribe

Source :


Did you know that the Bnei Menashe tribe, found in Manipur and Mizoram, are descendants of the Lost Tribes of Israel. Instead of converting to other religions, these people converted back to the religion of their ancestors after rediscovering their roots. They have been practicing Judaism for the last thirty years. 
In 2005, one of Israel’s chief rabbis accepted the Bnei Menashe people as descendants of the lost tribes, and since then rehabilitation efforts are being made.
