In light of worldly trends promoting choices that devalue life B’ney Yosef North America stands firm in our resolve to seek, encourage, promote, and defend LIFE.

The regathering and reconciliation of the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel in North America.
Nurturing those of Hebraic identity in Messiah’s body by fostering reconciliation.
The importance of community
Mishpacha is the Hebrew word for family. B’ney Yosef North America (BYNA) is a family in unity sharing an understanding of the Messiah and His call to “the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” We are a family in fellowship in that we come together to encourage and support one another. We may even be a family in long-lost heritage. Our unity and fellowship are not based on a common doctrinal statement, but an embracing of who we are as a family. Independently we are families who have recently awakened to the understanding that we are related. Individuals who once thought we knew who we were, but through a revelation from God have discovered our previous understanding may have been missing important information.

If we must pick a place and time, a good candidate would be Galilee around the year 30 AD.
The most repeated Prophecy in Scripture is the calling of God’s covenant people out of the nations and the reunification of the whole House of Israel. (Read more)
