Letters to the Editor

To: Jewish Post Readers:

The following letter begging for Jewish books and items was sent by members of the Shinlung/Menashe tribe who are converting to Judaism with the help of Rabbi Elijahn Avichail, Jerusalem.

These are not just people written about in articles and books; this letter personalizes them and their desire to return to their Jewish roots.

If you can donate any of the items they have asked for, please let me know, I would be happy to pick them up.
