Description:

This paper discusses the Lemba people of southern Africa, a traditional Bantu speaking tribe that has been quantifiably linked with Jewish priestly origins. It describes some of their traditions and the rituals that link them with Judaism.

From the Paper:

"Ritual is a crucial aspect of how people live their daily lives in study by archaeologists and anthropologists alike. This significant breakthrough in research enables researchers to link cultural characteristics by genetics in what is considered nothing short of a phenomenal breakthrough in linking culture with genetics. The Lemba people of southern Africa, a traditional Bantu speaking tribe, have been quantifiably linked with Jewish priestly origins, which explains the reasons they have retained many rituals of religious and Orthodox Jews, such as keeping Kosher and maintaining specific dietary restrictions that match identically the rituals of traditional Jewish orthodoxy."
