The Dawn of Redemption ✡ "Hashem Removed Yisrael From His Presence" - Israel365
In the end, Hashem removed Yisrael from His presence, as He had warned them through all His servants the Neviim. So the Israelites were deported from their land to Assyria, as is still the case. II Kings 17:23 (The Israel Bible™)
AD a-sher hay-SEER a-do-NAI et yis-ra-AYL may-AL pa-NAV ka-a-SHER di-BER b’-YAD kol a-va-DAV ha-n’-vee-EEM va-YI-gel yis-ra-AYL may-AL ad-ma-TO a-SHU-rah AD ha-YOM ha-ZEH
The Dawn of Redemption
The northern kingdom of Israel is destroyed, and its ten tribes are exiled to Assyria. Unlike the exiles of Yehuda (Judea), who return from Babylonia after seventy years, the ten tribes remain in exile. These tribes are known as “the lost tribes of Israel,” as they disappeared due to persecution and assimilation. However, according to Jewish tradition, these tribes will return to Israel in the era of the Mashiach (Messiah). The Bnei Menashe, ‘children of Menashe,’ are members of a tribe from northeast India who claim descent from the lost tribe of Menashe. For thousands of years they have continued the Jewish practices of their ancestors, including observing the Shabbat and Jewish dietary laws, celebrating the festivals and following the laws of family purity. And, throughout that time they dreamed of returning to the Land of Israel. In recent years, thousands of Bnei Menashe have been brought back home to the loving embrace of their brothers and sisters in Israel. The return of the lost tribes to the Land of Israel is additional proof that we are living through the dawn of the era of redemption.
