'Black Hebrews' getting kibbutz

The move will be another milestone for the Black Hebrews
JTA News Agency
Israel's "Black Hebrews" are getting their own kibbutz.

Dimona Mayor Meir Cohen, whose cramped Negev town has been home to the so-called Black Hebrews since their founders emigrated from the United States in the 1960s, announced this week that the community had been allotted a tract of nearby desert land on which to found a kibbutz.

The move will be another milestone in the Black Hebrews' efforts to be recognized by the Jewish state.

Identifying itself as "African Hebrew Israelite," the 3,000-member community claims descent from the Ten Lost Jewish Tribes, but this has long been rejected by rabbinical authorities as baseless.

The Black Hebrews are strict vegans and polygamists, and they practice some Jewish rites. They said their kibbutz will feature tourist attractions like a health spa and restaurant.

Bangladesh cyclone toll rises

Country grieves as death toll tops 3,100; officials fear it may hit 10,000
Associated Press

PATHARGHATA, Bangladesh - Bangladesh sought more foreign aid Tuesday to help thousands of survivors after Cyclone Sidr killed more than 3,100 people, according to an official tally that still was expected to rise.

Food, fresh water and temporary shelter still had not reached many of the hungry and exhausted survivors of the storm that tore across the country’s coast last Thursday.

“At this time we will welcome support from the international community,” said a statement from Bangladesh foreign ministry. “We are doing as best as we can do ourselves.”
