1. The Brit-Am Message for Yom Kippur (5769). An Outline
New BAMBI Broadcast
Brit-Am Yom Kippur Message (Text below varies somewhat from the Broadcast)
http://britam.org/Broadcasts/newBAMBI/yomkippur21.mp3
(ca. 25 minutes)

Yom Kippur begins a little before sunset on Wednesday evening 7th October 2008 and continues until sunset on Thursday 8th October. Altogether it is about 25 hours long. It is a fast day.
 
The Fastday of Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) is mentioned in the Bible Lev. Ch.23
[Leviticus 23:26] AND THE LORD SPAKE UNTO MOSES, SAYING,                  
 
[Leviticus 23:27] ALSO ON THE TENTH DAY OF THIS SEVENTH MONTH THERE SHALL BE A DAY OF ATONEMENT: IT SHALL BE AN HOLY CONVOCATION UNTO YOU; AND YE SHALL AFFLICT YOUR SOULS, AND OFFER AN OFFERING MADE  BY FIRE UNTO THE LORD. 
 
The DAY OF ATONEMENT (Yom Kippur) is a day of repentance.
WE can repent of our offences and be atoned at any time. Not all times however are the same. We may want to do something but feel unable to arouse ourselves in the necessary direction. ALTERNATELY we may feel we have repented but sense that something is missing, that we are not getting "through" to God.
Yom Kippur is a time in which it may be easier to repent and that our repentancance is accepted or may reach a level of acceptability more easily.
 Yom Kippur is a DAY OF ATONEMENT. 
All Israelites need to repent. Do good and good will come unto you. Do bad and evil will be befall you. Some people may say that good should be done because by definition it is the right thing to do. This however is not enough. The Almighty created us as human beings with legitimate needs and wants. God HIMSELF also promised us that if we obey HIM HE will reward us in a physical material sense as well as in a spiritual one.
It can be seen quite openly that most of the time most good people have it "good". In the long run they live longer, healthier, and happier.
There are exceptions.  The Book of Job also speaks of exceptions. The hero of the Book of Job was an exception. Even though he was righteous there was a period when he was made to endure trials and tribulations.
Nevertheless the principle still holds.
Doing good brings reward.
Evil incurs punishment.
If we have sinned and deserve to be punished we may mitigate the punishment or even avoid it altogether and receive a blessing instead. This is what happens when we repent and our sins are atoned for. This is the essence of Yom Kippur.  To achieve atonement we should repent of our sins, confess our sins to the Almighty and not to other people, and resolve from now on to do good and not evil.
This is what Yom Kippur is about.
 
On Yom Kippur Jews fast all day long and abstain from work. At the end of Yom Kippur it is customary to sound a long blast from the Shofar. This is in remebrance of the shofar that was blown on Yom Kippur in the Jubilee Year.  The Jubilee Year fell on every fiftieth year at the end of a cycle of seven recurrences of the seven-year long sabbatical years, i.e. at the end of every 49th year one had the Jubillee Year on the Fiftieth year.  Leviticus 25.
During the Jubillee year every Israelite indentured servant ("Hebrew Slave") would be set free. Every Israelite would return to their ancestral Tribal lands. There would be a reaffirmation of freedom of Tribal inheritance.  This would not happen immediately at the end of the Year but rather ten days later on Yom Kippur when the shorfar would be blown, the servants set free, and Israelites who had lost their inheritances had them returned to them.
Nowadays the Jubilee Year is not celebrated because we do not know which Tribes we belong to and because most of the Ten Lost Tribes are in Exile.  Even if we know (as Brit-Am beleives it does) where the Lost Ten Tribes are we cannot point at any specific person and say with absolute certainty that they are a lost Israelite and belong to a specific tribe. The Ten Tribes have lost consciousness of their ancestry.
This will change in the future.
The Ten Tribes will return.
Brit-Am is taking the first small steps in this direction.
We are doing something about it.
You too should also do what you can by supporting Brit-Am or in any other way that helps.
The  return of the Ten Tribes is associated with the blowing of a shofar.
 
AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS IN THAT DAY, THAT THE GREAT TRUMPET [in Hebrew "Shofar" i.e. ram's horn] SHALL BE BLOWN, AND THEY SHALL COME WHICH WERE READY TO PERISH (Hebrew: "Ovdim" also translatable as they who were lost?)  IN THE LAND OF ASSYRIA (i.e. Lost Ten Tribes), AND THE OUTCASTS (i.e. Jewish Captives) IN THE LAND OF EGYPT, AND SHALL WORSHIP THE LORD IN THE HOLY MOUNT AT JERUSALEM [Isaiah 27:13].
 
Let us recapitulate some of the above equations:
TRUMPET is Shofar.
WHICH WERE READY TO PERISH  IN THE LAND OF ASSYRIA are the Ten Lost Tribes.
IN THE LAND OF ASSYRIA refers to Europe in general.
THE OUTCASTS means the Jews.
IN THE LAND OF EGYPT in Hebrew "Mitsrayim" can mean Egypt but it also refers to Russia and related areas.
 
In other words the verse may be paraphrased to say:
##In that time a Great Shofar will be blown and the Ten Lost Tribes who were exiled by Assyria
and the Jewish Captives who were scattered to Egypt, Russia, Eastern Europe and elsewhere shall retun and they shall worship God in the Temple Mountain in Jerusalem.
 
This verse from Isaiah 27:13 about blowing a great shofar is quoted several times in the Prayer Service for Yom Kippur.
 
We all need to repent. Repentance includes helping to bring about the principle of the Jubilee Year. This includes helping descendants of the Lost Tribes know where they are and who they are.
This is what Brit-Am does. Brit-Am is helping Lost Israelites from the Ten Tribes and also from Judfah become conscious of their Hebrew ancestry and identity.  We are helping them prove thatthey are Israelites and to remain conscious of it and of its significance, at least in part.
This is connected with the Jubillee Year and with repenting.
Repentance therefore includes,  amongst other things, helping Brit-Am.

3. Prophecies concerning the Ten Tribes: New BAMBI and Textual Guide
Identifying Signs of the Lost Tribes
http://britam.org/Broadcasts/newBAMBI/signs.mp3
(ca. 6 minutes)

The Bible says that the Ten Tribes were destined to remain:
Separate from Judah (Isaiah 11:12-13 49:21);
Not known to Judah (Isaiah 49:13-14, 21. Hosea 1:7)
to practice Christianity (Hosea 2:8, 2:13, 2:16 11:12 Jeremiah 31:6)
to intermix with Gomer implying a Linkage with European nations (Hosea chapter one)
In the future they will re-unite with the Jews of "Judah" (Ezekiel 37, Isaiah 11:13 Jeremiah 3:18) but until then they have a role of their own to fulfill. They were destined to be situated at the continental extremities of the earth such as North America, the British Isles, Scandinavia, the Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa (Deuteronomy 33:13 Isaiah 24:16 26:15 41:8-9 49:6),
to be the richest (Genesis 27:28 49:25 Deuteronomy 33:13-16 Hosea 2:8),
and most powerful nations on earth (Numbers 24:8-7 Micah 5:7-9)
and to control major international strategic bases (Genesis 22:16-17 24:60).
To fulfil more than a hundred other criteria a partial list
of which is given on this site.
http://www.britam.org/ListofProofs.html
You need to know.
Your destiny may depend upon this information.
The three Rs of Brit-Am:
a. Research: Proving where descendants of the Lost Ten Tribes are today.
b. Revelation: Revealing Research findings to others especially to those who are identifiable as "Lost Israelites" and to the Jews of "Judah".
c. Reconciliation: Working for the Recognition that the Lost Tribes and Judah have a mutual destiny and common origin and interest and therefore need to accept Israelite identification and the unique role of each other.

7. Pleased with "The Tribes"
Hi
Had a wonderful day of atonement. I have also been reading your book  ["The Tribes"] and find it hard to put down. Our church understands these wonderful facts and has published a much smaller book and a booklet. The depth your book has is just outstanding. It is sad more people do not understand where the tribes went. It would be a better world if they did.
Thanks again and Shalom
Gary

1. End of Year Needs: Everyone should give something (if they can).
Brit-Am Appeal

One Hebrew year has closed and a New year has begun.
All that Brit-Am does and wants to do may be summarized in the three Rs of Brit-Am.
The Threes Rs of Brit-Am are:
Research: Finding who the Ten Tribes are.
Recognition: Revealing the results of Research.
Reconciliation: Working towards the ultimate Re-Union in the End Times of Judah with Joseph.
This however is a lot.
It is a limited objective whose potential is very great.
Through this knowledge descendants of Israelites become aware of who they are. They draw closer to feeling at one with their ancestors, their belief in Scripture is strengthened, and their awareness of Divine Providence is confirmed.

We do not know what will happen in the very near future.
Things could get better or worse, even much worse.
At present we are able to function and am doing so as much as we are able.
Nearly all of you are able to help us if you so wish even if it be in a small way.
In order to continue we are in need of funds.

Help Brit-Am while Brit-Am is still able to function and you are able to help.
Even a small nominal sum (that you should be able to give) would at least show that you believe that Brit-Am is worthwhile and worth supporting.
Brit-Am is a good cause and they who help Brit-Am will be blessed.
Your participation should be shown.
Please send us a personal check by snail mail or contribution by PayPal as explained below.
Just for the record Brit-Am is expanding and improving but offerings seem to have dried up.
Brit-Am is in need of your support. Brit-Am is on your side. Brit-Am works for your good and the good of those around you.  Brit-Am should continue to carry out its task. Help Brit-Am do this.
Send a contribution today and let us know that one is on the way.
This is a period of personal examination and introspection.
Brit-Am is always open to constructive criticism and feed-back and now more than ever.
Help Brit-Am do what it should.
Send us your offering or purchase.
God bless you all

3. Kosher 101.9 on Conversion and DNA
From: Rabbi Ray Maccabee <houseofisrael@fm1019messianic.com>
RE: Brit-Am Now no. 1238
http://britam.org/now/1238Now.html#Jewish
#1. Jewish Ancestry, Converting to Judaism, and DNA Tests

Shalom Yair:
Excellent answers and comments on conversion and DNA.  We have had several people who are making money and raising FALSE hopes in people to get DNA's right here in Carlsbad and in America.  I have stated before against this but they believe that if they have a trace of Jewish....They are now Jewish and began to act like Orthodox Jews... but of course they pick and chose what they follow..  They are better off not claiming it and just be drawn to love the Jewish people and the Torah. 
Reference Conversion, we have been accused of converting people (Kosher 101.9) We have always stated to them that this is not the goal, but to learn from Judah and accept the Authority of them when it comes to past years of safeguarding the TORAH.
Sad to say we do have some People trying to convert to Israel only to find at the end that they get frustrated and leave all together.  They are lacking direction and leadership on their calling.


Brit-Am Reply:


DNA Tests
Re DNA tests and their possible unreliability see:
BAMAD no.40
http://britam.org/DNA/BAMAD40.html#Exposure
#3. Exposure: DNA Tests - "A Waste of Money"!

Concerning Conversion
We are in general reserved about Ephraimites converting to Judaism at least at this stage since they may not be suited for it. Neither is Judah at this time built for it. Nevertheless there are exceptions and when is anything in life really suitably opportune anyway?
In the same way as we do not necessarily encourage conversion neither should we stand in the way of those who are pulled in that direction.
The whole subject is on the whole beyond the scope of Brit-Am.
We have our own task and it is to obtain knowledge, to spread information, and to help both Judah and Joseph however we can.




4. Thomas Malloy: "Beauty begets beauty"
From: thomas malloy <temalloy@usfamily.net>
Subject: Aseneth
Dear Yair;

I read the Midrash on Aseneth being the daughter of Dina, It sounds like a Jewish fairy tale to me. I assume that she was a close relative of the Pharaoh's. That family got into power in Egypt by being smart. The Midrash says that Joseph was very beautiful, and I assume that she was too. Beauty begets beauty, we're pretty, and we're smart.



5. STAGES OF THE EXILE
The exile took place in stages:
Textual Outline for New BAMBI Recording
Stages of Exile: The Lost Ten Tribes and Judah
http:// britam.org/Broadcasts/newBAMBI/stagesofexile41.mp3
(ca. 14 minutes)

 (1) DAN.
Dan, or a portion of Dan were traditionally the first to be exiled. A Legend quoted by Eldad haDani (800s CE) said that when Dan saw the Jeroboam had lead the other Tribes away from Judah and that there was liable to be war between Judah and Israel Dan departed from the land rather than be a party to civil war between brothers.
I-Kings 20 mentions that the Kings of Aram (Syria) had conquered parts of northern Israel in ca. 790 BCE and there are those who think that the disappearance of Dan can be traced to this time. Dan had occupied outlying areas of Israelite colonization from an early time.
The Tribe of Dan was divided into several sections. One section was in the south, another in the Upper Galilee, a third in Cilicia (south-east Turkey) and another in the island of Cyprus which was known as "Ydnana" i.e. Isle of Dan, and was part of the Promised Land of Greater Israel.
 
(2). EAST OF THE JORDAN
The Tribes east of the Jordan were the next to be exiled and this exile itself may have been conducted in stages.
 The Tribes east of the Jordan (Reuben, Gad, and half Menasseh) had been carried unto Halah, and Habor, and Hara, and to the river Gozan (1-Chronicles 5:26).
[1-Chronicles 5:26] AND THE GOD OF ISRAEL STIRRED UP THE SPIRIT OF PUL KING OF ASSYRIA, AND THE SPIRIT OF   TILGATHPILNESER KING OF ASSYRIA, AND HE CARRIED THEM AWAY, EVEN THE REUBENITES, AND THE GADITES, AND THE HALF TRIBE OF MANASSEH, AND BROUGHT THEM UNTO HALAH, AND HABOR, AND HARA, AND TO THE RIVER GOZAN, UNTO THIS DAY.
 
(3). NORTH GALILEE
The next to go were the Tribes in the North Galilee with Dan having disappeared at an earlier date.

Before the exile of Samaria (2-Kings 17:6)
meaning Menasseh, Ephraim, and Zebulon, the Tribes to the north (Dan,
Asher, Issachar, and Naphtali) had been taken away by the Assyrian monarch
who carried them captive to Assyria (2-Kings 15:29).
 
[2-Kings 15:29] IN THE DAYS OF PEKAH KING OF ISRAEL CAME TIGLATHPILESER KING OF  ASSYRIA, AND TOOK IJON, AND ABELBETHMAACHAH, AND JANOAH, AND KEDESH, AND  HAZOR, AND GILEAD, AND GALILEE, ALL THE LAND OF NAPHTALI, AND CARRIED THEM CAPTIVE TO ASSYRIA.                     
 
(4). SAMARIA
The area of Samaria and its surroundings were the last of the Northern Israelites to be taken away. We will see how most of the exiles were taken overland to the Realm of Assyria while some were transported over the Sea to the west in Philistine and Phoenician ships in the employ of Assyria.
[2-Kings 17:6] IN THE NINTH YEAR OF HOSHEA THE KING OF ASSYRIA TOOK SAMARIA, AND CARRIED ISRAEL AWAY INTO ASSYRIA, AND PLACED THEM IN HALAH AND IN HABOR BY THE RIVER  OF GOZAN, AND IN THE CITIES OF THE MEDES.                     
 
     (2-Kings 18:11- 12).  AND THE KING OF ASSYRIA DID CARRY AWAY ISRAEL, UNTO ASSYRIA, AND PUT THEM IN HALAH, AND IN HABOR BY THE RIVER OF GOZAN, AND IN THE CITIES OF THE MEDES.

              BECAUSE THEY OBEYED NOT THE VOICE OF THE LORD THEIR GOD, BUT TRANSGRESSED HIS COVENANT, AND ALL THAT MOSES THE SERVANT OF THE LORD COMMANDED, AND WOULD NOT HEAR THEM, NOR DO THEM (2-Kings 18:11- 12).

(5). JUDAH AND SIMEON
[2-Kings 18:13] NOW IN THE FOURTEENTH YEAR OF KING HEZEKIAH DID SENNACHERIB KING OF ASSYRIA COME UP AGAINST ALL THE FENCED CITIES OF JUDAH, AND TOOK THEM.                     
Many from Judah were also exiled by Assyria. These were inhabitants of the unfenced cities of "Judah" who joined the Ten Tribes in Exile and who according to a boast by the king of Assyria numbered more than 200,000.
A Midrash (quoted by Abarbanel) says these were from the Tribe of Simeon.
 
(6). JUDAH TO BABYLON
The rest of the Jews who remained in Judah were destined later to be exiled to Babylon by Nebuchanessar as described in 2-Kings chs. 24 & 25. Under the leadership of Ezra and Nehemiah the Jews returned from Babylon. Those Jews who had been taken into exile previously by Sennacherib remained unheard of. They joined their brothers from the Ten Tribes and became assimilated with them. In Biblical terms the Lost Ten Tribes are referred to as "Israel", or as "Samaria", or "Joseph" or "Ephraim". The Jews are recalled as "Judah", "Jerusalem", or "Zion". "Judah" is distinct from the Lost Ten Tribes who had gone away and were not to return until the End Times. In the census lists of Ezra and Nehemiah only people from the Tribes of Judah, Benjamin, and Levi are recalled. All the others had been exiled by the Assyrians and their identity hidden.
