Mirna Singsit arrived together with 53 other Bnei Menashe community members from northeastern India who were brought to Israel with Shavei Israel, an organization which aims at “helping descendants of Jews reconnect with the people and State of Israel” and facilitate their aliya.”

The move follows a recently passed government resolution to resume immigration of the Bnei Menashe, a tribal group from India and Burma who descend from the tribe of Menashe, one of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel.
