- Les Makuyas descendants de la tribu de Zeboulon?

MAKUYA. The word "Makuya" is the Japanese translation of the Hebrew phrase Ohel Moed
the Makuya, believe themselves to come from the tribe of Zebulun.

And the question of the Ten Lost Tribes has gained an added impetus since the founding of Rabbi Eliahu Avihail’s institution, Amishav, dedicated to reintroducing these long-isolated communities into the mainstream of rabbinic Judaism, in order to facilitate their emigration to Israel. During the 1980’s, Avihail and his followers began to scour the globe in the search for the remnants….and in 1994, "Amishav" brought 57 members of the community of Manipur, on the Burma-India border, to the West Bank settlement of Kiriat Arba in Hebron.

"Amishav" also collaborated in the conversion of "Native American Jews" in the Mexican town of Venta Prieta and the Peruvian city of Cajamarca, although in these instances it was known that the subjects were Christians who wished to convert to Judaism, not returning tribes.

MAKUYA. The word "Makuya" is the Japanese translation of the Hebrew phrase Ohel Moed the meeting place between God and man, the dwelling place of God's Shekhinah (Ex. 29:42-43), and refers to an indigenous Japanese group of Bible Believers, strongly identified with the cause of Israel.Makuya was founded in May 1948 by a charismatic leader, Abraham Ikuro Teshima (1910-73), who was then a successful businessman and ardent Christian believer. He emphasized the importance of the personal encounter with the Spirit of God and the return to the dynamic faith of the original Gospel of early Hebraic Christianity, as opposed to the dogmatic, institutionalized, Europian-dominated churches.He tried to revive the devastated spiritual condition of postwar Japan by proclaiming the words of the living God (Amos 8:11). He said "The Bible is the light to all peoples and the biblical faith perfects all religions. Even today the God of Israel is living and vividly intervenes in the human society with his abundant goodness and mercy."----------------A commentator on the Bible and prolific writer, Teshima maintained that deeper understanding of the Jewish faith, its people and history, is essential to the full comprehension of the Bible. The religious thinking of Rabbi A. H. Kook, Martin Buber and Abraham Heschel are among the cherished elements of their belief. Their fervent love of the Bible and firm attachment to Zion brings hundreds of Makuya pilgrims annually to Israel. Over 250 Makuya students have been sent to Israeli kibbutzim to work together with the people of the Bible, and to study Hebrew and the biblical background. Some of them continue their academic studies in universities. They have published their first Hebrew-Japanese dictionary.----------------from "ENCYCLOPEDIA JUDAICA" Year Book 1977-8 The Encyclopaedia Judaica, first published in 1972 and updated through regular Year Books and Decennial volumes, has been universally recognized as the most authoritative summation of Jewish knowledge in the world today. Designed for both the Jewish and non-Jewish reader, and the first Jewish encyclopedia on a major scale to be published in decades, the Encyclopaedia Judaica represents the culmination of years of intensive work by scholars from many parts of the world and provides a comprehensive picture of all aspects of Jewish life and knowledge up to the present day. http://www.makuya.or.jp/eng/judaica.htm
