COMMUNITY LIFE AND CULTURE
It is very easy to gauge the true values and the cultural substance of a
society by the way its members exemplify its culture. The African Hebrew
Israelites, in our return to a Yah-based culture, strive to present a
different standard in every facet of life. It is important that our
clothing, music, food and language reflect the glory and the higher
standards of Yah in order that we may be pleasing unto the source from
which we have derived our substance. We offer an alternative to those
who seek integrity, respectability and honor in their lives.
“Divine culture is the
perpetual trademark that secures the identity of a righteous people and
secures the existence of our eternal, living Yah.” Ben Ammi
We, the Sons and Daughters of Yah, understand that we have been set
apart (sanctified) from the confusion existing in present world imagery.
We understand that it is our sacred duty to embrace a Divine culture
that projects and protects the uniqueness, holiness, beauty and glory of
ourselves, thus glorifying Yah.
In today's world, man has created so many diversions from, substitutions
for and limitations of the true worship of God that the people have lost
their way. We were astounded when we realized just how far we had been
led away from God and the drastic changes required for us to fulfill our
responsibility to God as Hebrew Israelites. Nonetheless, we have
committed ourselves to the high degree of courage and discipline
required to establish an alternative lifestyle that is in harmony with
the cycles of God.
The Hebrew Israelites have fashioned an exemplary lifestyle that fosters
an atmosphere of intellectual development, resourcefulness and
creativity, minimizing social trauma and violence.
Within the Hebraic lifestyle, everything that we do and create is to
reflect and give credence to the righteousness of Yah (God), the source
of all life.
