African Jews


    The African Hebrew Israelites of Jerusalem are comprised of approximately 2,000 men, women and children residing in three development towns Dimona, Arad and Mitzpe Ramon in southern Israel. They maintain a vibrant culture which includes a communal lifestyle, a vegan diet, a system of preventive health care and high moral standards, a holistic approach to life based on righteousness. Their intent is to live according to the laws and prophecies of God. Since their arrival in Dimona, in 1969, it has been their objective to be the foundation for the establishing of God's Kingdom on Earth. The accomplishments of the past years have only strengthened their faith in the words of the prophets.

    In 70 C.E. the remnants of The African Hebrew Israelites were driven from Jerusalem by the Romans into different parts of the world, including Africa. Many Hebrew Israelites migrated to West Africa where they, once again, were carried away captive, this time by Europeans on slave ships, to the Americas along with other African tribesí people. In 1966 their spiritual leader, Ben Ammi, had a vision that it was time for the Children of Israel who remained in America (the land of their captivity) to return to the Holy Land (the land of their origin).
