dc.description.abstractThe Lemba live among other ethnic groups in southern Africa, but consider themselves
 to be Israelites who, after the Babylonian exile, migrated to Africa, The possibility that
 the Lemba might have a' Semitic ancestry (embedded in an African culture) is further
 suggested by their preoccupation with religious practices like animal sacrifice, ritual
 slaughter, food,taboos, circumcision rites, and enqogamy, This article is primarily based
 on field research (participant observation and interviewing) among the Lemba people
 living mainly in the northern and eastern provinces of South Africa and in southern
 Zimbabwe, Attention is drawn to the way in which the ide'ntity of the Lemba is manifested
 through the traditions of their origin, some key cultural-religious prac~ces (with an Old
 Testament resonance), the initiatives they took in their mission, and their assimilation
 into Christianity,
