Distribution of certificate for certified Sochatim

After 2700 years of exile the Benei Menashe one of the lost tribe of Israel merit to return to their ancestral land but experiencing the long hardship of exile they  nearly  lost their true identity but around 1960 with  Bible in their possession  a number of notable researchers among the Chin-Kuki-Mizo-Zomi people have written about the origin theory of Menashe, in which they   claimed that they belong to the ten tribes of Israel particularly from the Tribe of Menashe, since the name Manmasi appear numerously in the traditional folktales and in the priestly chants of the old religion.

We must understand that, as it is painful for the Jewish people to experience the bitterness of exile, so also it is painful for God as well. If their exile is painful for God, why then did He exiled them? The simple answer is for cleansing their sins.

Therefore after returning to our holy land every Jews need to strengthen the value of Jewish life that is observance of Torah law, One of the basic principles of Jewish day to day life is based on Kashruth, for Kashruth give the Jewish people to ascend spiritually and physically, and it also distinguish them from the nations of the world, by observing Kashruth the Jewish people add holiness, as it is said “Be holy for the L-rd your G-d is holy”.
