B’ney Yosef (Children of Joseph) North America
An expression on this continent of the global Hebrew awakening
You probably know that because of Israel’s mobilization for war in response to the October 7 invasion, all able-bodied men are now serving in the IDF in the south, the north, and now in the east. Their departure has left a manpower shortage for Jewish farmers in Judea and Samaria, who are now looking for help in pruning and preparing for the spring growing season.
Due to the critical need for volunteers and the security situation in the Land, we have prayerfully partnered with HaYovel, which already has guidelines and processes for volunteers. We hope that in the future, we can create a checklist of requirements that would allow us to draw from applicants affiliated with BYNA.

Statement and Prayers for Israel
Let it be known that B’ney Yosef North America (BYNA) stands steadfastly with Israel now and forever. Israel is our primary reason for existing. Israel has been from our beginning and remains now at the center of our mission and vision.
The people of Israel are more than friends to us. They are our family. Zechariah 2:8 “After glory He has sent me against the nations that plunder you, for the one who touches you, touches the apple of His eye.” BYNA will always support Israel and the Jews through good times and times of testing. Our connection cannot be broken.
We share in the pain and suffering that Israel is experiencing in these days of trial. Their pain is our pain. Their tears are mingled with ours. We weep with them, grieve with them, pray with them, and support them.
We acknowledge and declare openly that we are our brothers’ guardian. We too hear the blood crying out from the ground. We will not look upon our brothers’ blood and do or say nothing.
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.

Why we exist
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)
