Some 2,700 years after their forefathers were exiled from the Land of Israel, the Bnei Menashe visited Joseph's Tomb in Nablus for the first time.



The bones of Joseph, the father of Menashe and Ephraim, are concealed in the heart of the city, which is now controlled by the Palestinian Authority.

Only a year ago, the descendants of Joseph sang these songs in India on the way to the Land of Israel. Now, they have fulfilled their dream of generations to make aliyah. The Shavei Israel organization initiated this opportunity to visit their forefather's tomb.


Members of the Bnei Menashe laid themselves out on Joseph's Tomb and on his son Menashe's tombstone next to it.


Shavei Israel Chairman Michael Freund thanked the IDF brigadier commander with warm words for enabling the entrance to the site and for the IDF escort during the whole visit.


The rest of the visitors got carried away by the joy and dancing of the Bnei Menashe in the middle of the night.
