Unlike what some idiots say about Jews having no connection to Eretz Yisrael (Land of Israel), the history tells us that Jews have been there all along, even before Arab states came into existence. Here is a brief introduction to Bnai Yisrael, or better known as the 12 Tribes of Israel is the name given to those Hebrews lived in that land thousands of years ago.

12 tribes of israel

Who are those tribes of Israel? Where did they come from?

Those tribes originate from Jacob who G-d changed his name to “Israel”, thus his decedents are also referred to as “Israelites”.

Jacob, the father of the 12 Tribes of Israel has lived in Canaan.
