Project India (Bnei Menashe)

The Bnei Menashe (sons of Manasseh) claim descent from one of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel. After wandering for centuries, they settled in what is now northeastern India, along the border with Burma (Myanmar) and Bangladesh. Throughout their sojourn in exile, the Bnei Menashe continued to practice Judaism, including observing the Sabbath, keeping kosher, celebrating the festivals and following the laws of family purity. And they continued to nourish the dream of one day returning to the land of their ancestors, the Land of Israel.

Christians for Israel is partnering with Shavei Israel, led by Michael Freund, to help the Bnei Menashe home to Israel. In recent years we have assisted some 1,700 Bnei Menashe. 

Costs to help one person to Israel: $1460.
