The Lemba are a southern African ethnic group found in Zimbabwe and South Africa, with smaller, little-known branches in Mozambique and Malawi. According to Tudor Parfitt, Professor of Oriental and African Studies at the University of London, in 2002 they numbered an estimated 50,000. They speak the Bantu languages spoken by their geographic neighbors and resemble them physically, but they have some religious practices and beliefs similar to those in Judaism, which they claim were transmitted orally. A short film that will trace the history of these people will be shown. We will also discuss their DNA and its connection to the Middle-East.
