More about the Duties of the Ten Tribes in Our Times. Different Sources.
Explanation of the Sources:
Hasidim represent a major branch of Orthodox Judaism dating from the later 1700s. This includes major Chasidic groups such as Gur, Chabad, Braslav, and numerous others. What the leading Chasidic Rabbis and writers thought on certain issues is usally similar to that of other groups. Mainstream non-Hasidic Ultra-Orthodox (Hareidim) Jews are often referred to as "Litaeim" (Lithuanians), or "Misnagdim." Orthodox Judaism may roughly be divided into Hasidim, Litaeim, Modern Orthodox, National Relgious. The latter two often overlap. In addition to these one also finds divergent groups such as Reform Jews, Conservative Jews, etc. These. Yair Davidiy and his family belongs to the Litaeim, and/or Natrional Religious Jews. Nevertyheless we use all "Kosher" sources. It so happeend that most of the sourcves available to us at the time of our researches on these matters were those of the Hasidim along with some of the non-Chasidim such as Shimshon Rafael Hirsch, Hatam Sofer, Ha-Natziv, Malbim, etc. In addition to all these we have the Classical Sources (Maimonides, etc) that predated the others.
Rabbinical Hasidic Sources .
An Aspect of Joseph is to cleave to the Almighty even while occupied with matters of this world.
Joseph is the inner essence of everything. Through self-annulment to the truth and acknowledging it Joseph is revealed.
Joseph needs to abstain from illicit sex. Early marriage is encouraged.
Joseph needs to express his Israelite ancestry and work for the sake of all Israel.
Joseph brings the Tribes together.
Joseph emphasizes the Written Bible BUT should recognize that Judah has something to add. The input of Judah is needed.
Joseph unifies and carries the other Tribes as seen by the Shoham Stones on the shoulder-clips of the High Priest.
The Shoham stone was the stone of Joseph on the Breast-Plate.
There were two shoham stones one on each shoulder of the High-Priest.

Joseph versus Judah.
Different Tasks Need Different Blessings
Joseph had the secular tasks of Abraham is greater measure than the other Tribes.
"ABRAHAM SHALL SURELY BECOME A GREAT AND MIGHTY NATION, AND ALL THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH SHALL BE BLESSED IN HIM. FOR I KNOW HIM THAT HE WILL COMMAND HIS CHILDREN AND HIS HOUSE AFTER HIM, AND THEY SHALL KEEP THE WAY OF THE LORD TO DO JUSTICE AND JUDGEMENT; THAT THE LORD MAY BRING UPON ABRAHAM THAT WHICH HE HATH SPOKEN OF HIM" (Genesis 18:18-19).
The task of performing "JUSTICE AND JUDGEMENT" after becoming "A GREAT AND MIGHTY NATION" through which all the nations of the earth would be blessed devolved upon Joseph.
The quality of Empathic Consideration (Chesed) was associated with the Northern Kingdom in which the Tribe of Joseph was paramount.
"WE HAVE HEARD THAT THE KINGS OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL ARE MERCIFUL KINGS", said servants of the King of Syria (1-Kings 20:31).
"HATE THE EVIL AND LOVE THE GOOD, AND ESTABLISH JUDGEMENT IN THE GATE: IT MAY BE THAT THE LORD GOD OF HOSTS WILL BE GRACIOUS UNTO THE REMNANT OF JOSEPH" (Amos 6:15). .
Abraham would need to become a great and might nation IN ORDER TO be a blessing other peoples. As a reward for doing what he had to he would then receive further blessings of the same kind.
2 AND I WILL MAKE YOU A GREAT NATION,
AND I WILL BLESS YOU,
AND MAKE YOUR NAME GREAT;
AND SO YOU SHALL BE A BLESSING;
3 AND I WILL BLESS THOSE WHO BLESS YOU,
AND THE ONE WHO CURSES YOU I WILL CURSE.
AND IN YOU ALL THE FAMILIES OF THE EARTH WILL BE BLESSED.
We see here Abraham being promised to become a great nation, and a source of blessing to others.
Isaiah (NKJV) 49:
AND NOW THE LORD SAYS,
WHO FORMED ME FROM THE WOMB TO BE HIS SERVANT,
TO BRING JACOB BACK TO HIM,
SO THAT ISRAEL IS GATHERED TO HIM
(FOR I SHALL BE GLORIOUS IN THE EYES OF THE LORD,
AND MY GOD SHALL BE MY STRENGTH),
6 INDEED HE SAYS,
IT IS TOO SMALL A THING THAT YOU SHOULD BE MY SERVANT
TO RAISE UP THE TRIBES OF JACOB,
AND TO RESTORE THE PRESERVED ONES OF ISRAEL;
I WILL ALSO GIVE YOU AS A LIGHT TO THE GENTILES,
THAT YOU SHOULD BE MY SALVATION TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH.
The phrase "END OF THE EARTH" is associated with The Tribes of Jacob who need to be gathered. It also uses the expression "a light to the Gentiles."
7 THUS SAYS THE LORD,
THE REDEEMER OF ISRAEL, [E]THEIR HOLY ONE,
TO HIM WHOM MAN DESPISES,
TO HIM WHOM THE NATION ABHORS,
TO THE SERVANT OF RULERS:
KINGS SHALL SEE AND ARISE,
PRINCES ALSO SHALL WORSHIP,
BECAUSE OF THE LORD WHO IS FAITHFUL,
THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL;
AND HE HAS CHOSEN YOU.
8 THUS SAYS THE LORD:
IN AN ACCEPTABLE TIME I HAVE HEARD YOU,
AND IN THE DAY OF SALVATION I HAVE HELPED YOU;
I WILL [H]PRESERVE YOU AND GIVE YOU
AS A COVENANT TO THE PEOPLE,
TO RESTORE THE EARTH,
TO CAUSE THEM TO INHERIT THE DESOLATE HERITAGES;
9 THAT YOU MAY SAY TO THE PRISONERS, GO FORTH,
TO THOSE WHO ARE IN DARKNESS, SHOW YOURSELVES.
Despite all the mistakes, corruption, and evil that the BRITISH-DESCENDED nations may have done, everything is relative. On the whole they have been a civilizing influence amongst the Gentiles.

Abarbanel: "THE PROPHET THEREFORE SPOKE CONCERNING THE KINGDOM OF ISRAEL [OF THE TEN TRIBES] SET THEE UP WAYMARKS SAYING THAT WHEN YOU GO INTO EXILE MAKE SIGNS BY THE ROUTES AND WAYMARKS LIKE PILES OF ROCKS [i.e. cairns] OR STONE MONUMENTS [Hebrew: matzavah, i.e. dolmen] SO THAT YOU MAY SET YOUR HEART TO THE ROUTE AND REMEMBER IN ORDER THAT YOU MAY RETURN IN THE WAY YOU WENT IN, RETURN TO YOUR CITY."
