In Search of Lost Tribe

One time lecture. 2700 years ago, the Assyrians exiled the 10 tribes from the kingdom of Israel which they had just conquered. In actuality, the Jews of today are descendants of only two tribes of the kingdom of Judah. There are many legends about the fate of these 10 lost tribes which, until today, still remains a mystery. However, traces of the 10 lost tribes have been found reaching as far as Afghanistan, China, Burma and Africa. Presentation by David Bensoussan, Professor at University of Quebec.

Discussion for Children of Survivors of the Holocaust

Join other children of survivors/2nd generation to bond together and share this unique experience of growing up in a survivors home. If you have any questions, please contact Isabel Alcoff.

“I have appreciated BAI’s many opportunities for adults to learn and teach each other about Jewish history, art, Israel, and more. Whole areas of our Jewish heritage have been deepened for me, and I have been inspired to read and learn more after the adult education programs. I have also enjoyed guiding BAI members in creating silk challah covers and Hebrew calligraphy. “
