One day in 1997, while working as Deputy Communications Director for then-Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Michael Freund received a letter that caught his attention. He didn’t know then that it would change the course of his life. It was sent by a small community in northeastern India called Bnei Menashe, who claimed they were descendants of one of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel and who wished to return to Israel. Freund volunteered to help them and soon discovered that there are ‘lost’ Jews everywhere who seeking to reconnect with their Jewish roots.
He founded Shavei Israel, an organization that searches for and assists the Lost Tribes of Israel and other “hidden Jews” seeking to return to Zion.
