It is our primary goal to help resurrect the Chosen People of the Most High God who sleep in the dust of the earth, and to teach the world of the righteous ways that God intended for mankind to live. We pride ourselves in being Torah based and guiding the Children Of Yisrael who sleep in the dust of the earth, to understand our true heritage, return to righteousness, reclaim our identity and achieve our God given purpose which is to be a light unto the nations and teach the world that there is only one God, and the Lord of Hosts is His name.

Why Now by ZBD
On Sunday November 17, 2019 former three term New York City Mayor and now aspiring presidential
candidate Michael Bloomberg apologized before a packed church in Brooklyn, NY for one of his
Administration’s most controversial policies. Bloomberg said that he now … six years later - recognizes
how “Stop and Frisk” has negatively impacted minorities in this city.
This apology has immediately divided communities as some have cried “too little too late.” Others have
claimed this was needed to repair the broken relations between people of color in New York City and the
Passover and the Chosen People of God by ZBD
Passover - the event that commemorates GOD's deliverance of the Children of Israel from the land of Egypt, represents one of the most important seasons in Israelite culture. It has also become widely accepted as a sacred festival of those that practice Judaism. While many groups have adopted historical events to identify with their religious culture, we should always refer back to the origin of the season to truly understand the magnitude of its significance. Passover by origin is the commemoration for millions of Israelites and their descendants which represents their deliverance from the land of Egypt. This is also expressed by the introductory verse of the Ten Commandments “I am the LORD thy GOD who brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt out of the house of bondage.”
The "Black" Hebrew Israelite Controversy: A Response to The Media - by Zaccar Ben Dan
Many times, small events spark the most minute of thoughts that transform into a larger realization the longer that thought is entertained. The rally that took place on January 18, 2019 is one such event. While many viewed it as just another byproduct of the racially charged environment that has polarized this society since the months leading up to the 2016 elections, the event had more subtle undertones. The news media has accentuated the culpability of each group associated with the aforementioned rally based on the demographics of its audience. In two of the three cases the groups were permitted to represent themselves, as freestanding individuals present that day at that event. In the third case the behavior of the half dozen individuals was deemed representative of the entire community who shares the same cultural identity. In a progressive society that prides itself in eliminating the insensitivities of modern-day humanity, it has failed to address some of the longest lasting systemic insensitivities that have become a norm. This is a perfect example of such an oversight.
MLK DAY 2019: 90 Years of Prophecy and Reality - by Zaccar Ben Dan
As we reflect on the birthday, and subsequently the life, of one of our most profound civil rights activists we are inspired to embrace both the good and bad of what his life represented. We accept what we have been taught that his life should mean to us but we should also seek the deeper meaning of what his legacy created and also what his legacy caused. As we compare the juxtaposition of these opposing points of enlightenment, we can then really understand that this man was GOD sent, and we can interpret the prophecy that his life was set to fulfill.
During the March on Washington, Dr. King made one of the most prophetic and exposing speeches that this country has ever known. One of the greatest aspects of that speech is the opposing view-points that it created. Those opposing viewpoints are revealed and manifest depending on the mindset of those who read it, and more so the mindset of those who use it to explain the state of his people 50 years later. Those opposing viewpoints will also be reflected as the purpose of his life becomes a topic of discussion.
Statement of Purpose -A Unity Shabbat 2018 Address - by Zaccar Ben Dan
We open all of our gatherings by giving praise to the CREATOR of the universe because we recognize that without HIM nothing would be possible. We also recognize that with HIM all things are possible.
A few years ago, we the men of Beit DCB collectively embarked on a journey to do our part to uplift this segment of GOD’s nation and to motivate and inspire our people. With the support of our loved ones we are able to stand here today amongst you all, our family from various walks of life and lift up our voices together to give praise to the one TRUE KING, the only GOD, the CREATOR of everything that we imagine and many other things that we cannot.
For the past few hundred years in our modern history we have been told by our oppressor all of the things that we are not, and all the things we cannot do. We were convinced that we cannot succeed in anything. We have been labeled shiftless, lazy, and evil. We have been called monkeys, coconuts, coons, and all types of derogatory terms.
