Curiosity overwhelms me as to what some of the names in the title are.
Abayudaya & Lemba are NOT (yet?) Jewish. B"SD
After DNA checks, R. 'Amar's pesaq on the very pleasant Benai Menashe & Benai Moshe & Benai Efrayim seem to have very weak connections.
Ironically, the Lemba have strong DNA connections, while the Abayudaya have none.
I've heard R. Leff say that he referred the following question to R. Eliyashiv, an Ashkenaziya divorced her Ashkenazani husband & he TOTALLY disappeared from their life, including his son or sons. She remarried a Sefaradi man while they boys were infants & he wanted to take "his news sons" to schul with him. R. Eliyashiv FORBADE it because they are Ashkenazim. R. Dawidh Yosef, on the other hand, said that following ethnic Jewish customs is simply a nedher (vow) & can nullified in front of Beith Din.
