Issues in Judaism Lecture Series: According to the Customs of Moses and Shinto

The mystery of the Lost Tribes of Israel, exiled by the Assyrians in the 8th century B.C., and their whereabouts, dates back centuries, and still remains a mystery today. A significant group of people in Japan claim to be the descendants of the Israelites. Certain rituals are performed in Shinto shrines that resemble Jewish traditions, and there are other similar customs, ideological principles and structures. Research by Israeli rabbis and discoveries
by Japanese scientists indicate that this theory might be true. We will follow the eastward route in which the exiled tribes were taken in the 8th century B.C. and again in 586 B.C., heightening the probability of them ending up in Japan. The lecture will be accompanied by ancient drawings, scripts, sketches and photos.

Speaker: Michael Tuchfeld
Political analyst and columnist, Makor Rishon Magazine; host of Radio Galey Israel; host of Israel Radio, IBA and Channel 2 News, The Knesset Channel in Jerusalem, Israel; and former parlimentary correspondent

Funding for these lectures has been provided by the Dorothy and Elmer Kirsch Endowment Fund for the Hofstra Cultural Center.
