India’s Bnei Menashe will Celebrate Sukkot

The Bnei Menashe community of northeastern India is planning to celebrate Sukkot this year thanks to the generous support of the Shavei Israel organization, which sent hundreds of sets of Lulavim and Etrogim from Israel to India prior to the onset of the holiday.

In their festival prayers, the Bnei Menashe will offer its customary special plea, asking to fulfill their age-old dream to make aliyah to Israel during the coming year.
