The sign of Israel is the super-sign that had not been in existence for some 1,900 years but is now nearly 70 years into the making. It is the sign that tells us that this current generation is the one that Jesus spoke of so very long ago when he spoke of the Fig tree, (representative of Israel).

From Manipur to Kfar Hassidim: A lost tribe makes Aliyah
More than 400 immigrants from the ancient and mysterious tribe of Bnei Menashe have made Aliyah to Israel thus far this year, and many more are due to come in the next few months. The driving force behind this initiative is Shavei Israel, headed by Michael Freund. The Bnei Menashe are believed to be descendants of the tribe of Manasseh, one of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel that were exiled from the Land of Israel by the Assyrian Empire in 722 BCE. According to their tradition, the Torah scrolls which the Bnei Menashe had taken into exile were lost or stolen nearly 1000 years later. Since then, their tradition has been passed down from father to son across the generations. Over the years, Shavei Israel has brought more than 2,500 Bnei Menashe to Israel, while another 6,500 are still in India, all of whom are hoping to make Aliyah.
