Israel, our Jewish brothers, we want you to know we stand with you.
We are Ephraim, your brother.
We may look different, but we serve the same Elohim of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
We read the same torah portion to our children.
We are learning the same Hebrew language.
We eat kosher.
We celebrate the same holy feasts as you.
We keep the seventh day Shabbat.
We wear the same tzitziyot.
We pray the same Amidah.
We teach our children the Shema.
We love you and we support you.
When you are blessed, we are blessed.  When you are cursed, we are cursed.
We pray for you, we speak in your defense, and we will fight for you.
Shema Yisrael, YHVH Eloheinu.  YHVH Echad.
We are one.  It is time to stand together and see the salvation of YHVH!

    ;-D
    I too feel the same way!
    Shalom

  2. I really liked this, but I have a question… Why do you say, “We are Ephraim your brother”? Thanks!

    1. Hi Eva,
      Thank you for your question, it is a very good one. If you will allow, I will try to give you a thorough answer this evening once I tuck my kids in bed.
      Shalom

      1. Ok, to answer your question, Eva. In the Tanakh, the Kingdom of Israel was divided into 2 kingdoms, the Southern kingdom, collectively referred to as Judah, and the Northern kingdom, collectively referred to as Ephraim, or Israel. Both were taken into captivity but only Judah returned to the land. Some groups from the Northern kingdom trickled in and were absorbed into Judah. The return of Ephraim and the reuniting of the kingdoms into one is referred to often in prophecy, in places such as Ezekiel 37. Many people are independently returning to the keeping of Torah and I believe we could be descended of Ephraim, and even if we are not, we are grafted into Israel. That would make us Ephraim, the brother of Judah, either in belief only, or perhaps by genetics as well. I want to always demonstrate love towards those of the tribe of Judah. That is what I tried to communicate in this post. I hope that helps. Feel free to ask if I didn’t explain it well enough. 🙂
