Hebrew Israelites

Do you know about the Hebrew Israelites? No, I do not mean the entire Jewish population in Israel. And no, I do not refer to people that adhere to the Jewish religion who are of European descent.

I make reference to the African Americans who profess to be the true descendants of the ancient Israelites.

You can find quite a few websites about Hebrew Israelites (aka Black Hebrew Israelites, aka Black Hebrews, aka African Hebrew Israelites) by doing a web search. But, if you’d like, I can start you out with one of them.

Read about Hebrew Israelites over at Religious Tolerance. At the end of that article, there are more links about this topic for your exploration for further information.

    Did you check out the Falashas of Israel?


    • Aunt Betty,

      Now that you have mentioned it, I just did an internet search and read about the Falasha, aka Ethiopian Jews, aka Buda, aka Kayla, aka Tebiban, aka Attenkun, aka the Hebrew Habashim – all of which are mentioned in Wikipedia article about the Beta Israel community.

      I have previously heard these people by the terms Ethiopian Jews and Falasha, but have now learned much more.

      I think I just might make a blog entry about the Beta Israel community sometime.

      Thank you for bringing this to my attention.
