Black Hebrews fight for citizenship in Israel / Exotic community…San Francisco Chronicle
Calling themselves the African Hebrew Israelites of Jerusalem, their origins are rooted in their charismatic leader, Ben Ammi Ben Israel. Ben Ammi, who was a foundry worker named Ben Carter in Chicago, had a vision in 1966 that his African ancestors were descended from one of the 10 lost tribes of Israel. Since 30 disciples followed him to Israel in 1969, the community has established many celebrated professional gospel choirs and R&B singing troupes,sent their Hebrew-speaking offspring to Israeli universities and even represented the country in the European-wide Eurovision Song Contest. 17, their connection to Israel took a tragic turn when the first Black Hebrew born on Israeli soil was killed by a Palestinian gunman. Singer Aharon Ben-Yisrael Alis, 32, was gunned down as he performed at a bat mitzvah in Hadera. But after 33 years of living and now dying alongside Israelis, the Black Hebrews are still fighting to achieve a crucial long-standing goal — full Israeli citizenship, giving them such rights as voting and serving in the army.
