   Our Jewish Heritage   



Through our research, studies, and information given to us by several Jewish rabbis, we have found that the African people have Jewish Heritage that can be traced all the way back to Abraham the patriarch of the Israelites.   


Genesis 25:1-6 says 1) Abraham again took a wife, and her name was Keturah.2) And she bore him Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak, and Shuah.3) Jokshan begot Sheba and Dedan. And the sons of Dedan were Asshurim, Letushim, and Leummim.4) And the sons of Midian were Ephah, Epher, Hanoch, Abidah, and Eldaah. All these were the children of Keturah.5) And Abraham gave all that he had to Isaac.6) But Abraham gave gifts to the sons of the concubines which Abraham had; and while he was still living he sent them eastward, away from Isaac his son, to the country of the east.  


According to the Hebrew Bible, Keturah or Ketura was the woman whom Abraham the patriarch of the Israelites, married after the death of his wife Sarah. Her nationality is Ethiopian as she was the mother of Sheba and the Medians whose descendant, Jethro, or Ragu'el or Reu'el the Ethiopian priest of Median begot a daughter, Zipporah, who, in the Scriptures, was referred to as the Ethiopian wife of Moses.  Keturah bore Abraham six sons, Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak, and Shuah. Keturah was the mother of six sons, representing Arabian tribes south and east of Canaan, so that through the offspring of Keturah Abraham became "the father of many nations" including the Ethiopians.  


Because we have found that we have a rich heritage all the back to Abraham we have connected with ministries that support the transportation and livelihood of the Ethiopian Jews who are trying to return to Israel. One of those ministries is the Messianic Jewish Alliance of America We have also planted a tree in Israel that is helping provide employment, income, and revenue for the Jews in Israel.
