Be a Partner in the Exodus from India


to all who have decided to return to the Jewish people. We reach out to Lost Tribes and Hidden Jews from Poland to Peru and Barcelona to Brazil to help them reconnect with their heritage.

S havei Israel is a unique non-profit organization dedicated to assisting descendants of Jews and the Lost Tribes of Israel to reclaim their roots. Active worldwide, Shavei Israel is the starting point for anyone with Jewish heritage or ancestry who yearns to return.

Founded by Michael Freund, with the aim of strengthening the ties between the Jewish people, the State of Israel, and the descendants of Jews around the world, Shavei Israel is currently active in over a dozen countries and provides assistance to a variety of communities.

There is so much work to be done. Please become our partner in this extraordinary mission.
