Shavei presents at 2nd NJ Young Israel this month

This week we were thrilled to have the opportunity to present the journey of the Bnei Menashe to our second New Jersey, Young Israel congregation this month!

The program, at the Young Israel of Fort Lee, was delivered by Laura Ben-David again. Unlike last time, where she was actually present at the Young Israel of New Brunswick, this program was delivered from Israel, via Zoom. 

The presentation was organized by Deborah Littman and Nora Horn, co-presidents of the YIFL Sisterhood, and was attended by more than 25 people. 

The presentation gave background to the lost Jewish tribe of Bnei Menashe then took viewers on a multimedia journey following the Bnei Menashe from their remote villages in northeast India where they have lived for hundreds of years, and through the struggles that have been made to bring them on aliyah to Israel. 

The program was well received and enjoyed by all.
