Yad L'Achim's made some amazing discoveries
as they lend a helping hand to some Muslim/Arab women who discovered they actually have Jewish backgrounds/ancestry:
Yad L'achim announced last week that in January they had several cases in which Arab women turned to the organization for help and thereby discovered their Jewish identities.
These women had lived their entire lives as Arabs, grew up in Arab villages and were taught Arab beliefs, lived as devout Muslims, and never suspected themselves to be Jewish.
21-year-old L., 40-year-old S., and 30-year-old A. were born to a Jewish mother and a Muslim father, and did not know their mother's true identity. Each woman approached Yad L'achim separately and of her own accord.
I can only guess - the mothers converted to Islam? Sad. But thankfully, some are beginning to learn the truth.
