They built synagogues, took on Sab- bath observance and other biblical observances. One member recounts: “I remember my father weeping because he had found his way back to the true faith.” The way back wasn’t easy, but an Israeli organization has been helping with education and preparation for ali- yah (immigration to Israel). Several hundred have made aliyah and are helping the effort their tribe “home.”
to bring more of As a Jewish organization that
believes in Yeshua (Jesus) as the Mes- siah, we have the opportunity to share a message of faith that does not oblit- erate the Bnei Menashe’s ancient ties that they hold precious. One does not stop being Jewish or have to abandon biblical observances to become a Believer in the Messiah of Israel. God has opened the door for Jewish Voice to minister to this fascinating people group since 2008, when our humani- tarian and medical outreach team responded to desperate requests for assistance in light of a devastating fam- ine threatening the community in Mizoram caused by an explosion of the rat population. Since that time, we have made several journeys to this remote region, sharing much-needed medical and humanitarian care, and most importantly the Good News of Yeshua.
One of the Bnei Menashe songs which has been handed down through- out their generations commemorates the Exodus from Egypt:
We must keep the Passover festival Because we crossed the Red Sea on the dry land At night we crossed with a fire And by day with a cloud Enemies pursued us with chariots And the sea swallowed them up And used them as food for the fish And when we were thirsty We received water from the rock
As Jewish Voice ministers the love of God through medical and humani- tarian outreach, we bring living water from the Rock, that is the Messiah upon which eternal salvation springs forth, for the Jew Nations!

Mizo Tote Bag
I love this bag! You will, too. Whether trekking the highlands of India (where these one-of-a-kind shoulder bags are individually handmade), or on an urban shopping spree, you will adore the color, style, size, and comfort. Don’t be surprised by how many times you are stopped by admirers inquiring after your source!
My bag is often employed to tote my Bible and notebook to fellowship (along with an assortment of my favorite colored pens, some granola, bottled water, etc.) and inevi- tably I’m stopped by someone who asks, “Where did you get that bag?!” It allows me an opportunity to share a bit about the Bnei Menashe of northeastern India and how fortunate I feel to be helping them experience the love of God and find their Messiah!
