After the Fox: A Long-Expected Transition

BFB160803 Barking Fox MoveReaders of The Barking Fox may have noticed that the blog posts have become sparse recently.  Why is that?  To paraphrase Tevye of Fiddler on the Roof, “That I can tell you in one word:  Transition!”

Big changes are happening this summer in almost every area.  In the space of about six months, we will have seen one child graduate from college, another one get married, and both of them relocate to new residences.  We also are relocating after four years in Texas; early in September we will set up housekeeping in Charlotte, North Carolina.  About a month after that, we set off for Israel to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot), followed immediately by the Second B’ney Yosef National Congress.

Why the big changes?  Our connection with B’ney Yosef North America (BYNA) is the main reason for many of these transitions.  Although our leadership is spread out across the US and Canada, most of the Executive Council live in the Southeastern US.  Since we have the opportunity to relocate this year, it makes sense to set up housekeeping nearer to the people with whom we work, and Charlotte is a great central location.  We will miss Texas, but we look forward to being able to meet face-to-face with many of our Executives and Elders on a more regular basis.

These are the first of a number of exciting developments that will be unveiled in the next several months.  As they become available, The Barking Fox will pass on the news – while at the same time continuing to post commentary on current events, Scriptural topics, and other items of interest.

Thanks to you, readers, for your patience and your encouragement!  Even in the midst of this great transition, it is a joy to be the voice behind the Fox!

Can These Dry Bones Live? A Report from the Bney Yosef Congress of North America – Israel News

BFB160317 BYC from BINAfter less than two weeks of life, B’ney Yosef North America has begun to receive international attention. Breaking Israel News published the article reposted here on March 17, 2016. The writer, Laura Densmore of Hebrew Nation News, was present at the BYNA Summit in St. Petersburg. Her comprehensive account explains the proceedings and provides links to many other sources of information on what our friend Hanoch Young calls “an earthquake in Florida”.

Can These Dry Bones Live? A Report from the Bney Yosef Congress of North America

By March 17, 2016 , 11:00 am

The Bney Yosef North America Summit took place on March 4-6, 2016  in Tampa, Florida. What is this assembly of people? It is a network of North Americans who have heard the call to join together for the common purpose of the restoration and reconstitution of the people of Northern Israel, also known as the House of Yosef/Ephraim.

The purpose of this Summit was twofold:

*to discuss and affirm a statement of identity and purpose AND
* to get a biblical leadership structure in place, consisting of a Council of Elders to guide and lead BYNA and an Executive Council, to be the administrative arm.

Why this Summit now?  There is an ever increasing awakening of Ephraimites in North America who are looking for their long-expected reunion with Judah.
