Directed by: Aran Patinkin
Production: Neot Semadar Communications Ltd.

A 13-episode documentary series created by director and filmmaker, Aran Patinkin, which traces the legend of the lost tribes who, according to ancient scriptures were banished from the Kingdom of Israel after it fell to the Assyrians in the 8th century BCE. On this journey, in which Patinkin sets out to uncover what became of them, every episode shines a line on select individuals, traditions, beliefs, and cultures which, in some form or another, all lead back to one of the lost tribes.
In the fourth episode of the series, we meet the British Israelites – a Christian cult that rose to prominence in Victorian times, whose members believe that Britons are in fact descendants of the Hebrews who originally hail from the Dan tribe.
