Israelite Tribes in Exile
If it is not too late to comment on the cover design for your up-coming book, "Khazars", I'd like to express my two-cents worth.
I especially like the color and open design of the pipes, but it does appear to me that the Magen David, with it's solid yellow interior.
makes the design feel top heavy.
A suggestion might be to either leave the inside color of the Magen David the same as the rest of the background giving it a lighter airy appearance, or to reduce the size of it somewhat to lessen the weight.
Oh yes, and did I mention that I love your site, and recommend it to
anyone that will listen.
I am Jewish and am looking forward to the day when all the tribes will
know who they are!
Further to my last email, does Brit-Am have any scriptural insights to offer that might shed light on the reasons for tensions between the nations of the British Isles.
If we accept that Scotland is largely Asher, Simeon and Dan; that Wales is largely Simeon and Dan, and that Ireland is largely Dan (especially in the south) and that England is largely Ephraim (Joseph), is there evidence or examples of tensions between these brothers either in the Bible or in Rabbinic tradition that might suggest a parallel and echo with the modern day tensions existing between these nations today? Can the desire amongst the Celtic Nations for independence from England, which was achieved by southern Ireland in 1921, and desired today by many in Wales and Scotland, be typologically linked with ancient 'intra-israelite' tensions between these tribes and Ephraim?
Clearly the Genesis account of Joseph being sold into slavery establishes that Joseph is accustomed to not being popular amongst his brothers. Is this still being worked out in history today? Are you familiar with a rabbinical commentary or school of thought I once heard about that said that when the brothers were deciding what to do with Joseph, Levi wanted to Kill him, Reuben to throw him into the pit, and that it was Judah's idea to sell him to the Ishmaelites?
Sorry if this email repeats points i made in an email last autumn i believe but i think its also different.
Pleased with what you read?
We do this because we believe in it and enjoy doing it.
