The Need for
of Brit-Am Biblical and Secular Researches
Brit-Am emphasizes physical descent or at least psychological identification with the physical descendants of Israel.
This is important and must be factualized i.e. researched and publicized and confirmed over and over.
It is not to be taken for granted.
Biblical and secular evidence is needed and exists.
It still needs to be learned, refined, added to, taught to others, and if necessary debated.
Brit-Am believes in the Hebrew Bible, the Hebrew language, and Jewish Rabbinical Tradition concerning the obligations of Judah
and the correct interpretation of Scripture.
We are not involved in Theological or inter-faith discussion. Non-Jewish descendants of Israel, according to our understanding, may use Christianity as a tool on their way back. They should not use Islam or any other faith.
If they so wish, they may consider becoming Jewish but on the whole we do not recommend such a step in our time for technical reasons.
We urge them from where they are to intensify their Israelite awareness through interest in and support of Brit-Am beliefs.
We urge increased Biblical Awareness, Self-Help and Progress, Contribution to the Community, Brit-Am ancestral consciousness, Loyalty to their Israelite Country of Residence and allegiance to Joseph and support for Judah.
Eventually the Ten Tribes (Joseph) and Judah will re-unite. In the meantime they are separate.
The Ten Tribes (Joseph) will participate in the liberation of and settlement in the Land of Great Israel from the Nile to the Euphrates.
An initial preliminary stage may entail settlement in what is now Lebanon, Syria, and Jordan, and maybe parts of Iraq and Turkey.
We have articles on all these matters discussing the sources and we are prepared to correspond on these matters.
In the Messianic Era descendants of the Ten Tribes will also settle in Samaria and alongside Judah in Jerusalem.
At present we are in a preparatory stage before the Messianic Era. Sensitive souls feel an arousal and pull towards Jerusalem and Judah.
This is natural but in most (but not all) cases it is premature. There are exceptions but these are exceptional.
Descendants of the Ten Tribes in the majority of cases should not consider settling in the State of Israel at this stage.
Obstruction to Reconciliation between Judah and Ephraim
Brit-Am also advocates psychological acceptance of Judah.
Beware of wolves in sheeps clothing.
Recently so-called Ephraimites have been attacking Jewish teachings, making up interpretations of their own, or adopting alleged Karaite customs.
[Actually the real Karaites today have no such customs and the people who speak in their name are not real Karaites.]
You should be aware that,
To be firmly convinced that the Bible says something is one thing.
To simply flippantly reject Rabbinical Teaching concerning the Bible is something else.
Just because the Rabbis held a certain opinion does not automatically mean that they were mistaken!
Why make Ephraimites a laughing stock and object of derision in the eyes of the Jews?
Does a five-minute glance at English translations really justify rejecting Jewish Rabbinical Understanding of the texts?
Do you understand Hebrew better than they do? Are you more intelligent? Do you know more?
Have you learnt more? With greater passion, diligence, constancy and self-denial?
Ephraim needs to think in terms of Reconciliation not groundless conflict and confrontation.
Regarding rejection of the Hebrew Calendar:
Is your astronomical expertise greater than that of the Jewish Scholars whose observations and computations are considered as accurate as those obtained today by NASA?
Have you received some king of supernatural inspiration telling you that you are right and the Rabbis are wrong?
Did your forefathers learn all their lives and suffer martyrdom for doing so?
Are you really better than them? etc.
Just for the record, the Karates in Jewish eyes may be considered physically Jews but their religion is not considered
Jewish but rather a non-Jewish accretion characteristics of non-Israelite origins.
The Karaites were never a sect within Judaism but rather a break-away group who were antagonistic to other Jews and concerning whom much was uncertain
and still is.
Ephraimites who adopt Karaite customs are suspected of having anti-Jewish motives.
In some cases these suspicions have been substantiated.
By Ephraimites adopting so-called Karaite customs they are indicating to the Jews that they are probably of non-Israelite origin.
It is a free country and everyone can make their own decisions but before doing so the implications involved should be known.
We may speak on this issue at a later date.
Jews of Judah in Israel are
Mostly Orthodox Jews
Remember that Orthodox Judaism is considered the only genuine expression of Jewish Tradition.
Most Jews in Israel may not go to Synagogue but the Synagogue they do not go to is an Orthodox one.
Many Jews may be critical of their own faith but they resent the interference of others.
They do not mind non-Jews being Christians.
They may be surprised when Christians announce that they are of Israelite descent but have no wish to become Jewish.
Nevertheless they usually will be prepared to accept the possibility.
If however the non-Jewish Christian should try to missionize them or to tell them how to practice their own Jewish religion then that would be considered an expression of hostility.
Brit-Am stands for Research, Recognition, Reconciliation.
Attacks against the Rabbis by so-called Ephraimites undermines the Brit-Am striving for Recognition and Reconciliation.
