Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ben Ammi Ben-Israel is the founder and spiritual leader of The African Hebrew Israelites of Jerusalem. Born on October 12, 1939, Ben Ammi grew up in Chicago. At a young age, he worked in a factory casting airline parts. It was here that he was exposed by a coworker to the claim that "African Americans" are descendants of the Biblical Israelites. He was ordained[by whom?] as a Rabbi at the age of 22 and renamed Ben Ammi. Ben Ammi claims to have received a vision from the angel Gabriel in 1966. In the vision he claimed he was instructed to: "Lead the children of Israel among African Americans to the promised land, and establish the long-awaited Kingdom of God." In 1967, Ben Ammi led approximately 350 of his followers to Liberia to purge themselves of the negro mind they had received in the United States of America.show more
