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.

In a sense, we existed before we started (read more about us). B’ney Yosef North America was established on March 6, 2016, but the Ephraimite Awakening (Read more) that gave birth to BYNA was in motion long before our organization came together. 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)

Who we are
“Thus declares the Lord God” “Surely I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his companions; and I will join them together, with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they will be one in My hand.” Ezek. 37:19
The Elders serve to keep the people and leaders of B’ney Yosef North America focused on the promises of God to regather, redeem, and restore His covenant nation of Israel, and on our covenantal responsibilities to Him and to His Messiah, Yeshua.
