W e have seen some surprising things in our years of halachic adventuring but never had we expected to meet up with a group of Jewish converts on an island in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Yet when we arrived in Madagascar a large island 700 miles from the African coast of Mozambique (you might know it from the Risk game board) we discovered that not only had the group we met undergone a conversion process over this past summer but that many of the island’s inhabitants claim to have their roots in the Ten Lost Tribes. Naturally we wanted to see for ourselves.
