7,300 Bnei Menashe from India to make aliyah

Ministerial Committee on Immigrat Absorption makes decision in principle to bring to Jewish state northeastern Indian community claiming descent from one of Lost Tribes of Israel‬‬.

The first Bnei Menashe from India arrived in Israel in 2006. They were greeted by Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, president of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (IFCJ)

The Ministerial Committee on Immigrant Absorption, led by Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, reached a historic decision in principle several days ago: To bring to Israel the 7,300 members of Bnei Menashe – a northeastern Indian community claiming decent from one of the Lost Tribes of Israel.

The committee decided to appoint an inter-ministerial team of director-generals to prepare an operative plan of action to bring all Bnei Menashe to Israel. The plan will be brought to the government’s approval next month.

Some 1,700 Bnei Menashe have already made aliyah, but the process was halted in 2007. Foreign Minister Lieberman and Immigrant Absorption Minister Sofa Landver have now decided to undo the historical injustice suffered by the Bnei Menashe community and bring all of its members to Israel.

“This is clearly a Zionist issue,” Lieberman told the Yedioth Ahronoth daily on Sunday. “Even those of Bnei Menashe who have already immigrated have proved to be Jews and Zionists for all intents and purposes.

My comment:

It is amazing that God of the Bible calls home a lost tribe, thousands of years after their exile in Assyria.

This kind of display of the faithfulness of Jesus, may be the best example of a living God, who keep his promises.

Jesus is the fullfiller of the prophetic Word.

A “Jesus” that is not bringing the prophecies of an end times home coming of the Jewish people, is a dangerous copy cat.  Leave wicked assemblies who promote such a false “Jesus”.


Ezekiel 11:17
Therefore say: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I will gather you from the nations and bring you back from the countries where you have been scattered, and I will give you back the land of Israel again.’

 Matthew 5:17.

  1. Mr. Yechiel Eckstein is an enemy of the Cross of Christ, he world raither see these jews under Talmudic Judaisim. Talmudic Judaism is a corruption of the OT that is sending jews to HELL!!! Roman Catholicism is also a corruption of the NT that is also sending the backsliden and apostates to the same place HELL!!! If you did not already know this.

    1. Dear Gloria J.


      This kind of comments are not wanted, from a person who claim to know Yeshua. This articles is not about Yechiel Eckstein. This articles is about a lost tribe of Jacob, that will return home to Israel shortly. Even Messianic Jews believe that Yeshua will keep all the promises given in the Torah and the Tanak. The regathering of the Jews to Israel is a matter of fulfillment of the Prophetic Word. Not a matter of salvation. Let us pray that all Jews and gentiles living in Israel, will embrace the Messiah. Only He can save them.

      1. Yes Ivar yes you are right but only half right, the jewish people are returning to their HOME LAND ISRAEL, but not for a picnic. The ones that do return NEED the Gospel of G-D and so does “Rabbi Eckstein!” i’m Praying they don’t hang around him, that is what i’m saying.

        My reply:

        So love them with the same love God of Israel do. He took them home. The Messiah told us to love them, and we will do.

      3. Ivar,
        Greetings and peace
        Did you ever think that the regathering of God’s people to their own land occurred at the time of pentecost. All of those who believed received the Holy spirit as was prophesied to happen.
        Have a great day

        My reply:

        No. Israel was occupied by the Roman empire at this time. Not an independent nation. The Bible speaks about a regathering, and rebuilding of a desolate land. Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria was not a ruined and desolate place in year 1. Look at Israel in 1900 A.D. After hundreds of years of Ottoman neglect, the land was just as he prophetic word explained. A desolate wasteland, and Jerusalem a ruin.

    2. Goria
      Bless you today
      What you have said is true about Rabbi Eckstein. I agree. He does not know Jesus. He has no concern for the Jews salvation, which is really the most important thing even more than returning to Israel land. What good will that be if they do not trust in Jesus and be saved. Ivar is correct that our biggest prayer for these that are returning is that they embrace Jesus. Will be difficult though in a land that does not teach or emprace the gospel. At least not at this time
      I realize that the article is not about the Rabbi but these kind of comments do come out
      Have a blessed day

        My reply:

        When the full numbers of the gentiles have come into the Kingdom, then Israel shall be saved. Neither by human wisdom, nor by religious pressure. God of the Bible is softening the hearts of the Jews as we are speaking. The longing for the Messiah in Israel is on the rise. Few secular Israeli’s I have met, have rejected the possibility that Jesus is the Messiah. So just keep on telling the truth, and pray for them. Let Jesus fix the rest. Only He saves.

      2. Ivar
        greetings again
        You said that the longing for Messiah is on the rise. Few Secular Israelis I have met, have rejected the possibility that Jesus is the Messiah.
        My comment:
        That is awesome to hear that. I have a wonderful jewish friend who just returned from Israel. She is a native Israeli, born and raised there but now is here in america for about ten years. She is a believer. She said the same thing. Of course she speaks
        fluent Hebrew and in her sharing her faith with israelis she said there seems to be more interest in Jesus than ten years ago.
        This is a good thing
        Praise the Lord.

  2. Yes, He is a faithful God and a covenant is a covenant… forever. He is a sanctuary to His people. Gloria is exactly right! And, yes, Ezekiel is right on and also remember Ezekiel 11:18 as well.

    1. Hi my dear sister Jeannie! Thank you! i don’t think (my opinion) that Ivar realizes that 2/3’s of the jewish people will be wiped out and 1/3 will be remaining after the worsed Holocaust is yet to happen. The LORD G-D is returning the jewish people BACK to HIS Land that HE promised to THEM, just like HE said. The TRUE churches are to give them the TRUE Gospel not a social one that is on the rise because of Ecumenicalism, that is what G-D HATES, and HIS Wrath is upon such people. Satan is not a Satanist he is a HUMANIST!

        You might be amazed what I have been able to understand, simply by reading the Bible.

        Matthew 7:14
        But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

  3. Those people are not real jews. Many people are falsely claiming to be jewish- but the real jews were the descendants of Adam and Eve who built Sumeria, Greece, Rome/Europe.

    There is no such thing as an ‘ethnic jew’ the Adamites were a more advanced race that were created by YHWH to upstep the DNA of the ordinary human races- jews are recognized by YHWH according to genetic inheiritance- most of the real jews have been killed off- the remnant of Jacob that is to return to Israel will not return until nearer the end of the Armageddon battle. Those people who are now ‘returning’ to Israel are ‘imposters’ and YHWH recognizes this as an immutable fact. the people who are now returning are not related to the real descendants of Judah- but many of them are of Canaanite/Edomite extraction- and others are simply liars. You will see YHWH eliminate the imposters and near the end of the Tribulation the real Jacobites will return and will be rejected by the people of this world who have been lying about their genetic lineage.

    1. so you are jew because you are a jehova witnness,you people are crazy, am sorry but people choose their destiny, god put it in clear on the bible so you can understand the truth , but you choose to follow a cult.

    2. After the Flood Noah had 3 sons Shem, Ham and Japheth you came from one of those, my question is to you Caleb? which one is your decendent, we are all of one blood created by G-D, after Adam and Eve we come from the one of the 3 sons of Noah. Do you NOT know who the decendents of Shem are? They are the jews!!! the black skin people are the black people and the Asian people are the sons of Japheth. Many have inter married,but we all need to REPENT!Talmudic Judaism needs to believe their JEWISH Bible and not LISTEN to fallen man BUT LISTEN to Moses and HIS Prophets and most of all their Messiah (SAVIOUR!!!) Yeshua Jesus!!! That goes to the church that is BOTH JEW and GENTILE. GOT THAT!!!Caleb???!!!

      1. @elo/Gloria
        you are confused and self righteous.- you are the followers of the satanic cult of lies. The descendants of the tribe of Judah are the adamites – and G-d has promised the land of Israel to the remnant of the adamites…you can try to change the truth but G-d will prevail and you will soon see the imposters removed from the land- though it will take the full 7 years of tribulation to do that.

      2. Caleb? your NOT. You are a LOST nut that belongs in a Fruit Cake…and that is as nice as i can be at this moment.

      3. To all:

        Commenting on the Bible in a respectful manner is a must. We must alway think how Christ wants us to behave.

        Everyone is not going to agree with us, and we are not going to agree with everyone. But we can respectfully disagree.

      4. Dear Todd and Gloria.


        There is some truth in what Gloria said. But when we have brood of vipers coming on to this site to spread spiritual venom, we need to act like Jesus. The feel good factor is to walk like Jesus walked.

        Matthew 3:7
        But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to where he was baptizing, he said to them: “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath?

        Matthew 23:27
        “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean.

  4. I have seen Rabbi Eckstein in a lot of commercials on TV asking for money. I wondered if the Rabbi was a follower of Jesus or just trying to get money out of the very generous Americans wanting to bless Israel. I can understand Gloria J’s concern. Many people exploit the generosity of Christians to fulfill physical needs only (and the Lord will bless them for that-because those giving have pure intentions) but the name of Jesus will not be given to these poor people. My hope is that those receiving will be moved by the generosity of others so that they can be more open to Jesus.

  5. The coming of the Messiah is an interesting issue to which many prophecies are connected.
    Below, we are going to examine this area, that is, the prophecies connected with the coming of the Messiah. The purpose is to go through especially what has been told in the Scriptures – the Books of Moses, psalms and prophets – about the coming of the Messiah, the point of time of His coming, His life, His origins and whether or not these prophecies have already been fulfilled. In other words, the purpose is to find out how these things actually came true.
    However, we will not only be restricted to the writings of the Bible, but also use old commentaries of the rabbis (Midrash, Targum, Zohar, Talmud, etc.) as assistance, because they are valued very much amongst Jews. What is surprising is that from these old sources – especially from the oldest – can be found a powerful expectation of the Messiah and a description of His supernatural characteristics, presented in a way which very much resembles the message of the New Testament. An example of this expectation of the Messiah is what Talmud has said on the following lines. They indicate that prophets prophesied only for the days of the Messiah:


  6. Interesting stuff on the site in reference. Proves that Jesus did come as messiah already. Many Jews already know this but still
    do not believe.

  7. NOW I believe Israel is FAKE. I honestly used to believe the genuineness of Israel but this Chinese looking Indians said to be ethnic JEWS make the whole thing Nonsense. And denied Igbos who are Blacks from Nigeria claiming to be Jews.

    1. Because Christ says he will fulfill the law, Israel is a fake? What you need to do is read the Bible, and SEEK CHRIST to have love, acceptance, and an understanding of Jesus.

      1. Why did you not accept the LEMBA of AFRICA to be JEWS ? Did Christ say The Jews will never come from the BANTU race ? Jews from European race and now from the Oriental race but They deny the claim of BANTUS of LEMBA AND IGBO to be Jews ? So Who is the real Jew ?

    2. Dear killayutBoma


      I was in a party in Delhi where several dozen of Bne Menashe prepared them selves for Aliya. It was truly a miracle, that this lost tribe was found after 2.600 years in the diaspora. I wish you could open your heart and see that Jesus is doing in our generation.

      What do you expect from Jews in Norway? That they would look like Jews who lived in Egypt from 2.000 B.C till the day of the exodus?

      How is a Jew suppose to look?

      Is there a standard version that would suit your racial bias?

      1. More than, what a Jew is supposed to look like, the question should be “What makes a man a Jew” or what makes a man who is a Jew different than one who is not? The Bible is clear about this difference

      2. All Jews are supposed to look the same or at least share the same gene. Just as all Chinese look the same and all English look the same. All Bantus look the same . There can not be a Chinese looking person that would be an ARAB man or a BANTU man. It says LOTS TRIBE. a tribe is an Ethnicity and not religion. These Chinese Indians are different from the Real Jews.

      3. Dear killayutBoma


        You are entitled to have your own private opinions. Just like anyone else. But please be concerned about what the Bible says.

        There were Jews who inter-married with proselytes to Judaism. You can just take a look back in your own family line, and I guess you would find quite a lot of different faces and feathers.

        Many Jews home in Israel, have parents who lived in different nations. Do you have a look-a-like prototype Jew to show us?

        I do not like racism. You are about to be banished from this site for racism and Jew-hate. Please repent.

      4. KillayutBoma
        Search the bible and you will find the answer. The question is;
        What makes a man a Jew. It has nothing to do with a specific
        Gene or ethnicity. Search the bible. The answer is in it

      5. Todd


        You are equally in error.

        The Jews are of the bloodline and family of Jacob. They were chosen by God to be His people. During the ages, proselytes and inter-marriages have enlarged the Jewish family. But they have a few thing in common. They claim to be Jewish, and accept that the Law of Moses and the prophetic Words are still valid. If you accept this, you are a Jew inwardly.

      6. Ivarfjeld
        Greetings and a happy new year to you.
        A man is a Jew inwardly when he receives circumcision of the heart according to God’s word. Circumcision of the heart takes place when a man believes by faith in God’s son, Jesus Christ.
        This makes him a Jew inwardly. Jacob’s descendants were told not to intermarry. It was forbidden by God. You have confirmed that the descendants of Jacob have diluted the true Hebrew DNA due to intermarrying through the ages and confirmed that the commonness of all these that call themselves Jews is their belief and practice of Judaism. The bible that both you and I read and study is clear about what makes a man a Jew. It is belief in Jesus that causes circumcision of the heart which is done by God and not the hands of men. This is how Israel has
        increased because those who believe by faith in Jesus are of the seed of Abraham.

      7. Dear Todd.


        I have earlier rebuked the evil ideology you present in the name of “Jesus Christ”. The very idea of replacement theology is from the deepest pits of the abyss.

        1. The Jews were elected by Jesus. He has ALWAYS been.
        2. The Jews were Jews before the Messiah came in flesh, and died for our sins.
        3. The Jews are Jews today, even if they do not believe that the Messiah already has come in flesh.
