Home after 27 Centuries
Israel said to Joseph, "I never pilal-ti (thought/hoped/imagined/dreamed) that I would ever see your face again, and God has even let me see your children." (Genesis 48:11)
To this day, Jewish fathers bless their chidren with Jacob's blessing: "May God make you like Ephraim and Menashe." (Genesis: 48:20)
Tzvi Kahuate, Bnei Menashe Coordinator for Shavei Israel (www.shavei.org), was our guide on our visit to his community in Kiryat Arba.
We decided to focus this Vayehi blog post on our awesome reunion with the beautiful children of the Children of (Bnei) Menashe.
