Re Brit-Am Now no. 1976: Ten Tribes Studies.
#3. Reply to Remark Concerning Money, Talmud, and Kabbalah
What I meant was, the strife wont stop until we take up stoning adulterers, sodomites and those who practice bestiality. Surely G-d means what he says!
I'll shout you a feed when I get over there! ;)

"Role to Rule. The Task of Joseph"
New e-Book Edition. Pre-Publication offer
Role to Rule may now be obtained for $20.
Joseph has a duty to reform mankind. It was prophesied that Joseph would be granted the ability to fulfill his national task. This book explores the Task of Joseph in the light of Biblical, Rabbinical, Historical, and Up-to-date Geo-Political analysis. This work contain important and interesting information much of which is not available elsewhere.
The first Printing of Role to Rule has sold out. We are now preparing a new edition, much like the first, but in e-Book format, with some editorial improvements, updates, and additional information.
The Lost Ten Tribes went to the West. Descendants of Joseph are to be found primarily within the English-speaking nations of North America and the British Isles and their overseas offshoots. Joseph had a predetermined role in world history to fulfill.
"Role to Rule. The Task of Joseph" examines the destiny and duty of Joseph, how it was fulfilled, and what remains to be done.
It is shown there really was an exile of the northern Israelites and that they really were lost. Joseph received a greater blessing than all the other Tribes along with the right of the Firstborn. Joseph technically at present has the status of a "Gentile" but as a nation he also has particular obligations beyond those of Gentiles and even beyond those of other Israelites. The names of Abraham the Hebrew, Isaac, Jacob, and other Patriarchs are recalled as national appellations of the British and American peoples. Joseph was required to become a blessing for others, a light to the world, and a civilizer of the non-Israelite heathens. The sons of Joseph, Ephraim and Manasseh, were each to have their own national distinctions. Joseph was blessed that he would possess the "Gates" of his adversaries meaning the control of strategic points exposing the vulnerabilities of potential enemies. This was a characteristic of British Imperial Policy in the past and if anything it is EVEN MORE a feature of US strategy in the present. Joseph was to be involved in Egypt, Africa, and India and to populate Australia and New Zealand. Joseph is destined to defeat the Edomite-dominated nations meaning most non-Israelite powers of importance. Joseph is OBLIGED to rule over the nations and guide them in the right direction.
The Jews are representative of Judah who also has a unique task of his own in this world and on the whole the Jews have and still do fulfill their task. Joseph and Judah are in need of each other.
Appendices include a full improved translation of an article from the Rabbinical Scholar, Nachmanides (1194 - c. 1270 CE), proving that the Lost Ten Tribes had been exiled, were in the North, and were destined to defeat the Heathen Edomite Powers and return to reunite with Judah.
A Prophesy (Deuteronomy 28:68) that the Exiles from the Land of Israel would be taken to Egypt in ships was fulfilled in Judah as recorded by secular historians.
Rabbi Avraham HaCohen Kook (1864 - 1935) was the first Chief Rabbi of the State of Israel and the Spiritual Guide for all Modern Religious Zionism. A translation of an article by Rabbi Kook confirms our understanding of the roles of Judah and Joseph.
The Maharal of Prague (1525-1609) is considered one of the greatest Rabbinical Authorities of all time. The Maharal foresaw the Lost Tribes being assimilated amongst the Gentiles and suggested that ultimately they would be found in America and at the extreme north and south of the world. The words of the Maharal are translated and commented upon.
"Role to Rule" is at present the ONLY source were this information and more of equal importance is available.
"Role to Rule. The Task of Joseph" studies Biblical Messages concerning Joseph in the light of Rabbinical Tradition along with up-to-date expert geo-political analysis and historical anecdote.
"Role to Rule. The Task of Joseph" has an Approbation by Rabbi Avraham Feld.
This book is indispensable for an understanding of the USA, Britain, and the West today.
It is also interesting and pleasantly readable.

3. Brit-Am Appeal and Self-Appraisal
Make an Offering to Brit-Am:
Relatively speaking to the number of people we reach out to we do OK.
Nevertheless we need more funding to function and therefore have to
make an Appeal.
More often than not our Appeals receive a positive answer to some
degree or other. Sometimes they do not.
At all events, we do spread the message. Over the course of time a
large number of people of Israelite Descent hear our message and a
good proportion benefit from knowledge in depth through us.
Not only that BUT we also regularly come up with NEW verifiable
information of value concerning the Israelite Ancestry of Western Peoples.
Once this information is in the public domain it remains there. If it
does not merit recognition and wide-spread resonance at present it
may well do so in the future.
A certain activist once said to Yair:
# You have found Rabbinical Sources concerning the Lost Ten Tribes
and published them. There is now no further need of you, is there? #
In my opinion the person concerned was the one there was no real need
of in this field but we all have our idiosyncrasies. To each his own.
[Actually the person concerned "repented" to some degree and has proven himself of some utilitarian benefit in his own field. So have we.]
The fact is the information we put out has, and God willing will have, in the future a value beyond ourselves.
If we were dead the remark made by the activist might have a point to
it. But we are alive, thank God, and Divine Providence has helped our
researches and writings.
Since the incident in quest we have merited to be shown still more
information and sources of value most of which we have published.
We have done and are doing this in every field, in Biblical Studies,
Rabbinical Commentaries, and Secular Sources.
The information goes out to those who are interested in the Lost Ten
Tribes and also percolates in many cases to academic and other circles.
It all has a cumulative effect.
Not only do we find things we also reformulate and upgrade existing
finds and publish it all.
And we provide a Forum of quality that gets out to quality people and
is appreciated by them.
Brit-Am/Hebrew Nations is now in need of money.
We believe that whoever helps us will be blessed from on HIGH.
In a sense we are all in this together and therefore should pull together.
Please send an offering.
4. New Article. Jews and Joes
Are the Lost Ten Tribes Amongst Judah?
In 2-Kings 24:14 it says that Nebuchadnessar in the first stage of exiling the Jews of Judah carried away 10,000 captives. Two verses down (2-Kings 24:16) it says he took away seven thousand.
Jeremiah 52:28 referring to, the same event, says 3,023 Jews.
14 Also he carried into captivity all Jerusalem: all the captains and all the mighty men of valor, ten thousand captives, and all the craftsmen and smiths. None remained except the poorest people of the land.
15 And he carried Jehoiachin captive to Babylon. The king's mother, the king's wives, his officers, and the mighty of the land he carried into captivity from Jerusalem to Babylon. 16 All the valiant men, seven thousand, and craftsmen and smiths, one thousand, all who were strong and fit for war, these the king of Babylon brought captive to Babylon.
28 These are the people whom Nebuchadnezzar carried away captive: in the seventh year, three thousand and twenty-three Jews;
The Commentators (Radak, Metzudat David) say that there were about 10,000 altogether. 3023 (or 3000 in rounded-off figures) were from the Tribe of Judah and 7,000
from the other Tribes.
This was after the Ten Tribes had been exiled. We know that as well as Judah most of the Tribes of Benjamin (1-Kings 12:21, 2-Chronicles 11:12) remained in the southern Kingdom and that these were joined by most of Levi.
13 And from all their territories the priests and the Levites who were in all Israel took their stand with him. 14 For the Levites left their common-lands and their possessions and came to Judah and Jerusalem, for Jeroboam and his sons had rejected them from serving as priests to the Lord.
Taking this 10,000 as a representative sample of the people of Judah we get 30% from the Tribe of Judah alongside 70% from the Tribes of Benjamin and Levi and minority representatives from the other Tribes. There were therefore some of the other tribes in the Jewish population. They were however a minority and were destined to remain as such.
The Tribal expression of the Lost Ten Tribes (says Nachmanides) is to be achieved amongst the majority of the Tribe in their place of exile.
Concerning the Jews, the Divisions between them, and the Ten Tribes:
Physically, the Jews are on the whole one body with differing proportions of the same components in the different places. Here and there on the physical level foreign accretions also must have made a contribution in addition to the effects of environment and genetic drift in isolated communities.
On the spiritual-symbolical level we may hazard to draw a parallel between the Jews of Judah and those of Babylon as compared to Judah and the Ten Tribes. The Jews of Judah had an influence on the Ashkenazic Jews whereas those of Babylonia affected more the Sephardim. We could therefore say that Judah represents the Ashkenazim whereas the Sephardim may be closer to the Ten Tribes. There may be something to this parallelism at the physical level as well, in a relative sense.
Personally I would say that Judah predominates amongst the Western and Lithuanian Jews; Benjamin amongst the Hasidim of Galicia and Eastern Europe. The Sephardim are also from Judah but have a higher proportion from the other Tribes intermixed with them.
All this does not detract from the force of our identification of the Ten Lost Tribes with peoples of West European derivation who are not aware of their Hebraic ancestry.
5. Our Acheivements are Thanks to the Participation of our Readers and Supporters.
Recent statements of ours concerning our acheivements in research etc may have been misconstrued as boasting.
This was not our intention. We were merely trying to raise needed funds by mentioning what we consider to be positive gains.
Much of what we have done (and some of what we have not) is thanks to our audience and their interaction with us spiritually and materially.
