Maggid ben Yoseif / Jerusalem Torah Voice in Exile

Teaching and travel itinerary of Maggid ben Yoseif

ben Yoseif is again accepting general speaking invitations following a quietus of several years dedicated to research and other projects and priorities.

He shared on the ministry of Elijah, the attributes in the heart of the Patriarchs being turned to the children and the current spiritual ministry of Elijah at the Manna From Heaven congregation on the Mississippi Gulf Coast as a guest of Pastors David and Brenda Williams on Shabbat Ha-Gadol (the Great Shabbat before Passover).  The following night, March 27, 2010, he conducted the most recent "Mystical Passover Seder" with the intent of restoring the Passover Seder to the Assimilation of the non-Jewish House of Israel.  This teaching also included insights from Rabbi Mattityahu Glazerson from lectures at Yeshiva D'var Y'rushalayim (Word from Jerusalem) in 1988 on the purpose of the Seder in our day of remedying the sins of the tongue and offered other mystical insights about Passover while leading the congregation through the 15 steps of the Seder.

Both teachings were aired on Paltalk and live over the Internet.  CDs and DVDs are available from Manna From Heaven ministries.

ben Yoseif has been unavailable for general speaking invitations (except for Passover seders and teaching seders) from August 2009 until Shabbat Ha-gadol (the Great Shabbat before Passover) 2010.  This is because he has set apart the entirety of the winter of 2009-10 in connection with his duties with the Equahiyi -Wasi, a First Nations society organized by Central Band Cherokee Principal Chief Joe 'Sittingowl' White to examine cultural, archaeological, historical, linguistic, DNA and spiritual links between First Nations tribes and Equahiyi (Abraham) and Wasi (Moses), assist in the documentation of the Jerusalem connection to at least one clan of the Hopi and his weekly Torah teachings at Eldersgate, NAC.

On May 1, 2009, he was a repeat guest of Jewish talk show host Andrew Feder on BBS and his program "When Pigs Fly."  He also made three appearances on Prophecykeepers First Nations radio.

From April 8, 2009 - May 8, 2009, he led Orthodox Passover Seders among Native American groups in the Pacific Northwest.

Red Elk, Native American elder and member of the Heyoka, Twisted Hair  and Red Web societies invited Maggid ben Yoseif to speak on the restoration of Native American spiritual sovereignty to open his November 14-15, 2008, meetings at the State Street Armory in downtown Fairview, Utah. 

ben Yoseif also made rare speaking appearances to Mormons and other LDS offshoots through April 2009 at several venues in Utah, Wyoming, Idaho, Oregon and Washington State following the meeting in Fairview.
