It is with deep appreciation to the beloved supporters who enabled
me to relocate to the related countries to do this research fulltime.
Without your consistent support this crucial work
would never have materialised. I am forever indebted to you…
This project is a part of a large international study involving Prof (Dr) WA Liebenberg, the Maccabee Institute
for Advanced Biblical Heritage Education, the Kol HaTor Establishment and this crucial organization,
the Commonwealth of Israel.
Mission of the project:
We are dedicated to strengthening the Jewish self-identification and the Jewish pride for their rich historical background and great past through which the world at large benefited greatly. This is the very reason why our project specifically aims to bring to light, not only the Jewish history, but also the traditions, religion and social responsibilities. Knowing one’s roots is knowing one’s purpose, the connection to the fatherland and the beloved people.
About the project
Open world – Enlighten Project and the Basis for a Discussion
Open world presents “Research Cycle, Consisting of 16 Books Dedicated to the Historical Overview of the Existence and Disappearance of the Ten Tribes of Israel” and supports discussion, information and social space for people living in different countries, who are not indifferent to the fate of Israel and are willing to learn more about their roots.
One of the most important tasks of our project is the informational support of the Israelite descendants settled in the many nations in different countries. It is also to help them to awaken and identify their culture and start learning their roots and traditions and to help them to repatriate and to strengthen bonds between Jewish people and the nations. It is our hope and desire that we will be able to help our progressive young generation who are willing to study and live a Torah-based lifestyle and acquire more information regarding its fundamental principles that benefitted the world through the ages.
From the Author
I hope readers will be interested in the findings, as a holistic whole, made by me and my team in the process of working on the project cycle. Perhaps this research will make many people rethink what their relationships to the much-loved Jewish people are, or wake up the thought that they are perhaps Jewish? Further, to provoke their fundamental appreciation to the Jewish people for their moral culture and customs, which were embedded in the ancient civilizations.
Discovering these “white spots” of the history of the Jews and mankind, each of you may be convinced that basically the world was laid on the supreme law of “love and the nobility of human nature”.
This epic principle was not granted in vain by the Almighty, but by the love of His beloved people who went through inconceivable and endless suffering in the hope for them to return someday to their real home. I dedicated my life to increase the social acceptance of the Jewish people by the world so as to understand clearly what they truly mean for humanity; and love them with deep appreciation…
For the first time in the historiography and development of this theme, a systematic analysis, which is chronologically arranged, has been made on the process of the migration of the entire generation of Israeli people and their direct influence on the development of culture and religion in many nations. The “A Historical Research of the Ten Tribes Scattered Into the Nations” book cycle has been thoroughly developed by our team for three years. We spent almost two years in a working expedition in many countries, personally met representatives of local Jewish organizations, beloved people of Israel now living outside its borders in new places they call their home. During our expedition we were blessed to meet local archaeologists, to find archaeological evidence of settlements of the ancient Israelite descendants and the connection to the defined Biblical events. All of this can be read in “The Chronicles” or see it in the published materials – the reports on the investigation of the glorious and rich sacred history of the Jews and their intellectual traditions.

The stratagem of modern society seems to be a given. However, throughout its history, society has continued to change, and today is just a stage on the trajectory of these changes. How will this society be in the future, more importantly, why did it become so? What have we lost or missed in knowledge about ourselves? And how can we improve?
The Zeitgeist of today, which is a new generation of Jews, is actively seeking their own understanding of the Jewish people, and discovers it in the source of life and inspiration. Modern culture is increasingly returning to the ancient Hebrew texts for attention to the spiritual values of the Jewish history which has become an increasingly prominent phenomenon in society, which I am pleased to notice over the past decade. Throughout the Jews’ existence they always had a great cultural influence on the entire global civilization. It is also impossible to deny the huge impact that the Bible and other Jewish types of educational activities had on the lives of the Jews and other nationalities.
About the author
by OvadYah Avrahami
Over the years, I have had the honour and pleasure to maintain close professional and personal contact with Prof Liebenberg and I will not hesitate to declare this research and social work of the professor as an outstanding and unique addition to our knowledge of these topics which should be treasured – the fundamental importance of which Israel, and even the world, cannot overestimate.
My collaboration with Prof Liebenberg is explained by the correlation of our communal life and spiritual interests. The cycle author and my colleague, is engaged in educational activities in the sphere of development of international knowledge about the Jewish religion and culture as a university representative in South Africa (HRTI & HTG). He zealously supports the process of wider social understanding of the historical mission of the Jewish people in his region, the African countries and internationally. He passionately went on extended research expeditions to the countries of the European Continent to research amongst the little known and virtually vanished ancient populations for the truths of the Ten Tribes.
I personally represent the organisation, the Commonwealth of Israel Reconciliation Projects, along with co-founder, author of several books on the Ten Tribes and their traces in history to this day, Stephen Spykerman and a team consisting of twelve members, six from the House of Yahudah and six from the House of Yisrael (Ephraim) to further the process of reconciliation between the Two Houses. These Board members are all well experienced on this topic and are specialist commentators in their own right.
Prof Liebenberg owns several dozen deep historical and research works, which formulated a system of spirituality worthy to occupy a prominent place among the world systems of the moral development of mankind. He was conferred the status of professor in the field of Ancient Hebraic Studies, a natural result of his self-sacrificing work in this area. He is an experienced Biblical tour guide and promotor of Israel, organizer and participant of many important international conferences and forums, including the recent Cameroun visit where he taught Torah-acceptance and had discussions with important government officials such as Minister of State, Minister of Justice and Keeper of the Seals – Mr Laurent Esso and others. In addition, he heads the Hebraic Teaching Group (HTG) of which the Hebraic Roots Teaching Institute (HRTI) is a subsidiary where a variety of educational programs are offered to students from different countries and continents by a modern system of distant learning.
I want to emphasize that for over two years, Prof Liebenberg devoted all the free time and personally funded this creative phase for the presentation on our website: Research – historical chronicles.
Having said all this, it fails to cover even nearly all the facets of the fruitful activities of Prof Liebenberg, which aim at the study and popularisation of the best categories of the Jewish culture and religion. His work and effort are highly commendable and hopefully progressive people will give their every assistance and help.

I highly recommend the reading of the research project findings by Prof (Dr) WA Liebenberg’s cycle in which he gives a structured systematic and chronological presentation of the historical events related to the disappearance of the Ten Tribes of Israel. Also, in the process of disclosure of the many topics, he reminds us of the wisdom of our forefathers, based on the laws and ideologies of our holy Torah. The study is aimed at the unification of the Jews all over the world according to our Sages’ teaching for our nation’s purpose. It encourages and even inspires the return to Eretz Israel.
On the photo: The Lailashi Hebrew Bible is a unique Bible regarded as one of the world’s most important Jewish manuscripts, kept at Georgia’s National Centre of Manuscripts. View on special permission by Prof Liebenberg. It is one of the most important documents which proved the ancient coexistence of Georgian and Jewish people. With Prof Liebenberg is Prof L Tsitsuashvili who is the leading figure in Jewish Culture and Tradition in Georgia and teaches at the Georgia Private University.
Even the name of the cycle has attracted wide attention and already has won a large audience. The reason for this is – the urgency of the problem; the enormous amount of factual material of world history which is available, social studies, geography and with the ever increasing wisdom from the Bible and the Torah. The author demonstrates superior knowledge, brilliant connection of historical, geographical and theological knowledge in the subject of this research. Worthy of admiration is the depth of analysis given in the source cycle – and systems thinking which is presented to us as Sacred Spiritual Knowledge.
The analysis of the circumstances and causes of the historical processes described may serve as an illustration to determine the order of construction of the various ethnic groups and their cultures, as spread by the Israelites into the world. All this will help to further the revival and development of the national Jewish identity and especially Torah awareness amongst the nations. This all in fulfilment of the Intentions of the G-d of Israel and the predictions of Jewish sages.
The study topics raised by professor Liebenberg are of extreme importance, not only historically, but also in the arena of public relations for Jews and Judaism. Today, world wide, there is a renewed interest and awareness even amongst non-Jewish people after the breakdown of the traditional norms of behaviour and methods of spiritual development. Increasing personal morality and individual spiritual perfection through Torah study has become the driving force for social life and national identity in the re-identifying and returning of the Ten Tribes to their Hebrew roots.

All Things Made New
More on our plans
During the years of our work we have produced a substantial historiography on the subject. This enhanced historiography will allow us to enter a new stage of research to detail the reconstruction of the described events and trace the deep connections between ancient Israelites and their modern generations’ locations.
We also intend to establish bonds and a vibrant connection to people related to the Ten Tribes, who possess knowledge and a will to take part in the process of bonding with the representatives of the Jewish communities of the different continents, and bound together by their common roots, both the culture and religious aspects.
We have already received letters with the stories and memories about families and their roots from various people from many different countries. They are all bound together by their ancestors’ will to return home.
- At the core of our project is our dedication to create the international forum for people aiming to reconstruct historical events and to discuss life reports from our contemporaries.
- In order for the portal to be alive and prosper we intend to continue research expeditions to all places and routes described in the chronicles, create contacts with Jewish representatives from around the world and connecting them with each other.
- For the purposes of scientific research we intend to combine the approaches and results of national historiography on the basis of documents from the archives of more than 20 countries.
- The core purpose for the working group in the coming period is to develop an algorithm of interaction with large foreign archives, institutes and research centers involved in this mega-project.
- Information obtained during the investigation can be purposed to update and improve not only historical documents but also social literature, religious literature, and to work with websites that describe the current problems of Jewish history and the history of international relations in the framework of the formation of a pluralistic Jewish community.
Diary study trips (short)
We are really proud of what has been achieved already!
The aim of our research trip to a group of Balkan countries was to become acquainted with the initial stages of the mysterious ancient route the exiles took from their Native Land Israel. The findings of these studies have also formed the basis for the writing of the historical and chronological cycles ‘Chronicle’.
In the countries of the Caucasus Mountains region, we have spent more than a year, meeting with scientists and university professors, famous archaeologists and culturists, and museum managers, focusing on Jewish history and their cultural traditions. From these meetings and discussions, it became evident that in the Caucasus region there is a deep respect for the Jews, a favourable environment for their development and, most importantly, there are active people who are promoting projects related to the development of Jewish education.
On the photo: Meetings were conducted with Prof (Dr) Guram Kipiani of Ilia State University concerning this “mysterious” topic.
Researching on religion in this region we were able to meet with Rabbis of local synagogues, with representatives of the Jewish local communities to learn about their life in the Jewish diaspora far away from their beloved homeland, and presented them with informational material about the projects of our Israeli partners: the “Commonwealth of Israel” and the “Kol HaTor Establisment”.

In our expeditions to remote villages in the mountainous areas we were able to get acquainted with the locals, the mountaineers, who even today carefully observe the traditions of their Israelite ancestors.
A trip to Green Lake in the region of Adjara (Georgia) for us was almost the zenith of the research – the gateway to the mysterious “Arsareth”. Here the unique monuments of their ancient culture are still gathered. It is here where the most mysterious “land covered by dark clouds”, as described in the pages of the Bible, starts. The place where the ancient Tribes of Israel once settled. Here the Israelites were able to find a secured place and enjoy a safe haven. Everything needed by them to be nourished and sustained for life is provided here by God. For the ancient travelers, this place became their temporary and safe home, before venturing in search for a new life to the western European frontiers in fulfilment of Biblical prophecies.

On the photo: During my trip to Mtskheta (Georgia) I managed to find a small church which was built on the foundations of an ancient synagogue. In the photo with me is the caretaker of the historical site – Alexander Taj – who devoted his life to this site.

It should also be noted that this present generation “still remembers the old names” of their townships, wetlands, forests, “fortified” sites in the vicinity of their villages, ancient legends and their traditions.
Actually, Georgia is a wonderful place that is worth a visit! In the autumn we will be prepared by an informative report on other countries of the Baltic region, with the results of our expedition.
The project is not a commercial one; it is designed to enable a strong humanitarian impact.
Humanity successfully develops returning civilizations and people, fulfilling certain social roles
and functions in the global society. But even with this natural change of cyclic processes of society and the
freedom to define themselves, for each of the nations there is an irreversible pre–chosen historical path.

Jerusalem: Rabbi Avraham Feld: “You have been a defender of Israel and the Bible for most of your life. Your sincerity
in academic scientific research is steadfast, reliable and your compassion permeates all of life’s activities.
Prof Liebenberg, you are a professional teacher, educator and an expert in several fields of endeavor. We have been
taking note of your achievements and one of the fields in which you exceed is the study of the Ten Lost Tribes of
Israel. You have accumulated a great wealth of wisdom, knowledge and understanding on this very involved and
specialized field. You have done academic scientific research which is rich in fascinating insights on Ten-Israel.
Your research has now undoubtedly proven academically what the Sages and Prophets of the Bible have said for years.
On behalf of the House of Judah in Israel, we thank you for your time, dedication and remarkable
research. You work proves now for the first time in a methodical ‘scientifically’ researched work, covering every
thinkable area, the historical existence and scattering of Ten-Israel. You don’t find academic leaders often
that are passionate about Ten-Israel. We consider you as our dear friend. Continue your academic scientific research
for the eminent Reconciliation and Restoration of Ten-Israel to the Kingdom of Israel. We cannot overstress how
important your scientific work is to confirm what the Sages advocated for thousands of years.”
Jerusalem: OvadYah Avrahami: “VERY IMPRESSIVE! Thank you that you carry the Reconciliation Vision
to the nations. You are really doing exceptional work. How do we thank you?… HaShem will surely.”
Georgia (Europe): David Ben Melekh (Jirkvalidze): “I have carefully read your scientific and theological research
studies concerning the scattering of the ten tribes of Israel, and the historical unfolding events of the two
kingdoms. It is the first real historical exposition from a very honest, intelligent and humane scholar, for
whom the truth and prospects of a civilized development are more important than time and erroneous political
situations. Your Institute, The Hebraic Teaching Group (HTG) in South Africa, is also the only true Hebraic
Restorer and does a great job. In your research you really made a big breakthrough in the presentation of the
‘real’ placement of Jews around the globe. The story outlined by you regarding the Scythians and Alans and their
role in the history of the Jewish people of Iberia, Caucasian and European countries, including Western Europe
and England, is much more thorough and real than any before. Much more is assimilated in the sense of the tribes
of Jacob, than the renowned researcher Arthur Koestler (Jewish Hungarian descent who later relocated for a period
to Israel). I looked at the photos of your trips into the Arsiani Mountains and think that you have undoubtedly
collected valuable material, and I agree with you that settlers from Israel lived in the whole territory you
identified as Arsareth in your research. Your research will definitely contribute to the mental healing, spiritual
development, the growth, and the realization of spiritual unity of the Jewish and of the human race, and
finding mutually acceptable compromises to create peaceful living conditions and the development of civilization
on our planet. Bravo, Professor!”
Canada: Dr David Sloss: “It is the esteem of Elohim to hide a matter; And the esteem of sovereigns to search
out a matter.’ Proverbs 25:2 (Scriptures Version – ISR). Albert Einstein stated, ‘One may say the eternal
mystery of the world is its comprehensibility.’
The search for that comprehensibility, particularly as it relates to the hidden nature of the Tribes
of the Diaspora from Israel, has been of little interest for millennia. It has remained a hole in the chronology
of this nation. But in more recent times, those who comprehend the Scriptures in their purest form, see a whole
area of Biblical history which lies unexplored. Where did the Northern Ten Tribes of Israel end up settling after
their captivity by the Assyrians in or about 722 BCE? One interim destination, as Dr. W.A. Liebenberg’s
research is disclosing, is in the area of current day Georgia, lying between the Black and Caspian Seas. Here
local histories, historians and religious leaders are sharing information which linguistically, religiously and
culturally demonstrates clear Hebraic connections to very specific locations. The three part report on this
research is sufficient to whet the appetite of those who have long wondered what lies within this unaccounted
for period in Biblical history. We anticipate look forward to additional discoveries which further ‘search out
South Africa: Dr Levi Marx: “The research section about the Megalithic Monuments and dolmens as commanded
to be left as road-markers by the Ten Tribes, had me in total awe! This topic inspired me for further studies
towards a Ph.D.”
Britain: Peadar OCeallaigh:
“In my inner growth, my professional experience and my academic study I find your
books to be accurate
and compatible with Irish, Scottish and British history and Saxon and Scandinavian histories”.
USA: Rick Pate: “What you might not realize is your research is an answer from The Almighty to my prayers.
It is such a blessing to have your teachings in my library to resource when I need them. I have been gleaning
from your institute’s work for years. It is your work, some professors out of Jerusalem and about five
teachers out of the US that I glean from, that works with my servitude.”
Cape Town: Paul Mare: “The amount of research done is astonishing. Impressed and I respect hugely.
It is more incisive than anything I have ever read before, I am blown away…”
Ex Scotland: Ed Garner: “Part 5 is wonderful and, for a Scotsman, truly engrossing. It gave me a powerful
insight into my Jewish roots. If you are of scattered Israel, here is HaShem’s voice into your life,
through His prophets. Part 7 brought back so many memories for me of my past life in Scotland. It also
answered questions of history and personal observation which no previous source or person ever could.”
Pretoria: Abraham Meintjes: “The Ten Tribes research from Georgia is perceived by me to be pioneering groundwork
for our time period on G-d’s time scale. I have read Report no 5 with great and fascinated care.
Wow, what an exciting report! It is a critical report which crowns the spiritual, geographic and sociocultural
anthropology insights of many over the ages, but suppressed by so many agendas! Thank you very much.
The Ten Tribes research conducted by our respected Dr. W Liebenberg is to me of tremendous help and your
research continues to broaden and detail valuable historical and other evidence. There is so much that
can be done with the Ten Tribes research.”
Meyerton: George Jonker: “Great work! I envy you for your achieving it.”
Johannesburg: Daleen Engelbrecht: “I am so excited about the work, it is awesome!”
Durban: Koos Niemann: “By using the research material I can now challenge people on their traditions,
to acknowledge that Judah has a major part to play in the unification process to re-unite the two houses.
We are very excited about this ground-breaking research that you have done.”
Georgia Government Project: Mari Papunidze: “Your research content is a pleasure to read.”
LaVonne Jacobsen: “I have read and studied most of Prof. Liebenberg’s studies and really love them.
I have learned a tremendous amount.”
South Africa: Martha Theron: “I am so excited about the facts written in these books because they teach me,
that although I cannot trace my ancestry I know for a fact that through the Scriptures I have been chosen
by Elohim and I have been blessed by being grafted into the olive tree, as well as having the possibility
of being a descendant of one of the tribes. The research takes you on a wonderful journey through the history
of Israel’s ancient paths leading to their dispersion into the world. The torture techniques that
the ten tribes were confronted with upon their arrival in the Assyrian empire had me literally in tears.
Thank you for taking me on this wonderful journey of history of the ten tribes of Israel.”
The Jewish history has been tragic to the extreme, and for the people of Israel to preserve their traditions
and culture, it was consistently given with great dedication and effort. 2700 years ago, the Kingdom was
divided, and from there the beloved Israelites were expelled from their native land and these fragmented
people are not yet reconciled, a process that is now starting. In the process of the dramatic historical
events they were assimilation into the foreign nations and integration with their surrounding society,
even so in the dissolution of some of these nations. The question is, where are these millions of people?
How did they realize their fate in their foreign countries of settlement? How must they prevent their
further assimilation by risking losing their ultimate identity and to strengthen their fundamental original
This part of the history of the Jews has always deeply worried me. My main aspiration and purpose,
as a researcher of Hebrew history challenged me to penetrate deep into the historical events that led
to the disappearance of millions of Israelites off the face of the earth. So I started to study and set out
a “Chronicle” of Israel’s history from the time of King Solomon. It is well known that there is
a “big historical hole” present in the past and present historians’ individual and separate
recordings. A more complete and systematically chronological historical reconstruction, backed by scientific
evidence, was crucially needed, therefore this research. The reconstruction of the historical limitations
was taken from the time when the Twelve-Tribe Kingdom of Israel existed through the timeline when the
Twelve-Tribe Kingdom split up into two separate Kingdoms – one a Ten-Tribe Kingdom and the other
a Two-Tribe Kingdom – to the point when the Ten-Tribe Israel Kingdom “so-called” mysteriously
disappeared. This Ten-Tribe Israel Kingdom’s people disappeared into the nations in the fulfilment
of Biblical prophecy, and their roots and fate caused a lot of controversy amongst the many groups of
Jewish people concerning their family ties. To many of these scattered people their own ancestry past
and identity are still unknown.
In the process of writing this extensive research cycle – “The Chronicles of the Disappearance
and Emerging of the Ten Tribes” – I visiting many of the countries where the Israelites migrated
through and was able to collect and analyze the archaeological and historical materials that help to
reveal the ancient events, raise archival texts, fragments of memoirs, diaries and other private evidence,
analyze quotations from ancient books, as to coalesce a first “A-Z” academic research backed by scientific
evidence. Of course, I tried to bring this research to my contemporaries as well as to provide the prophecies
of the Bible and historical realities also in plain language for the non-academic reader as far as possible.
All the historical evidence or Biblical chronicles are set out in a sphere in accordance with current
scientific knowledge and thinking.
So, it’s a cycle consisting of 16 books, which is structured in successive chronicle events and evidence,
and hopefully will be comfortable enough to understand. All the necessarily Biblical descriptions are
explained in footnotes to add clarity.
After spending many days on business trips and visits to the various places on the migration routes
of the ancient tribes, I was able to explore areas to recreate their travels. Vivid marks and signs are
present on these routes, allowing identifying the fate of the exiles to their new places of residence.
Their lives and their desperate search for a new land is a visual history of “spiritual resistance”,
together with their “constant courageous idealism and uncompromising faith” in the victory of good over
evil. All this is planted deeply in the beloved Jewish people.
