A B'nei Menashe Doctor Gets Prestigious Posting

Dr. Josiah Mate as an undergraduate student at the Regional Institute of Medical Sciences.

(May 21, 2024) In a result that was declared by the Manipur Public Service Commission recently, our very own B'nei Menashe candidate, Dr. Josiah Mate secured the 74th rank out of 124 candidates declared successful. Our newsletter reliably learnt that he is slated to join the prestigious Manipur Health Service very soon at Singat, an hour's drive south of Lamka. The examinations had been held in 2021 but due to disruptions by covid19 and subsequently by the ethnic conflagration lately, results were delayed. He is the second child of Hezekiah and Chingpi Mate (he has two sisters, one older and the other, younger). They are residents of Tuibuong, Lamka and members of the Beit Shalom congregation there. Dr. Mate is a graduate of Regional Institute of Medical Sciences, Ranchi, capital of the northern Indian state of Jharkhand. He completed his studies in 2017 and proceeded for an internship. Till the time of the declaration of the results he was working as a contract doctor at a dispensary at Behiang, a village on the southern border with Myanmar. It might be of interest for all that the hereditary chiefs of Behiang belong to the B'nei Menashe community with several members of their family having lived in Israel for a long time now.

We are elated at the exemplary success of Dr. Josiah Mate and hope it will serve as an example for all B'nei Menashe youths in India as well as Israel. We wish him our very best as he takes off on this journey with blessings all of the B'nei Menashe. Mazal Tov!

Dr. Mate and his family.
