• Welcome to our wonderful life!
    the life Yahshua taught us to live
  • We all live together,
    like a big extended family.
  • We live this way because
    We follow the teachings of Yahshua.
  • Just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another."
    He said, “Love one another.
  • We share our possessions and work together,
    like bees in a hive - every day.
  • Our communities began
    in the early 1970s in
    Chattanooga, TN.
    We had searched to find
    a church where God really
    was the highest priority,
    but found that He actually
    took second place,
  • even to things like
    Superbowl Sunday
  • Disappointed, we all went to the
    park to worship our Father.
    We just wanted to make Him as
    important in our lives as we are in His.
  • So we stopped going to church and started being the church,
    and something wonderful began to happen!
    We began discovering what God wants to happen on this earth.
  • With excitement, we discovered that
    the disciples in the first century
    lived just as we were living.
    Acts 2:44 says, "All who believed
    were together and had all things
    in common."
  • And Acts 4:32 is even clearer, "All the believers were one in heart and soul,
    and no one claimed that any of his possessions was his own,
    but they shared everything they had.
  • We live together
    because we love Yahshua
  • Our love for Him makes us love being together.
  • We also love to share
    this simple life with others.
  • You may have seen us at events,
    walking in pairs,
    circle dancing,
    in our Yellow Delis,
  • or all together in a big unique bus.
    “Come for a day, or to stay!”
    You may have heard us say,
    what we now will say again:
  • Please come and visit us!

Testimonies

A heron flew across the still lake, flapping its wide wings for an awkward landing in some reeds by the shore. Its reflection in the water could be seen by a single figure on shore, reading at a picnic table. Tim's Bible and notebook were open, and had been open for hours. Tim was the new program director at Camp Pocono Plateau, and he had come up three weeks before his new job started to take walks in the woods and pray and study. It would have been easier to just read some camp books from the Christian bookstore about how to reach kids' lives for the Lord, but Tim had a deeper mission, and one that he wasn't about to start talking about yet.

Great News! We've re-opened and would love to serve you once again, so please come on in! Nestled in the heart of picturesque Oak Hill, New York, at the foot of the Catskill Mountains is a very unique building. This building was once an opera house in what was formerly a buzzing social hub at the turn of the 19th century. It now stands as a historical reminder of a culture almost lost that thrived on neighborly friendships and care for one another. In 2005 this stately structure begin to undergo a restoration to bring it back to it's original purpose: to bring people of all walks of life together on a common ground of laughter and good times. We ran it as the Oak Hill Kitchen for 6 years and now in 2011 we have transformed it into The Yellow Deli.

The Twelve Tribes is a confederation of twelve self-governing tribes, composed of self-governing communities. We are disciples of the Son of God whose name in Hebrew is Yahshua. We follow the pattern of the early church in Acts 2:44 and 4:32, truly believing everything that is written in the Old and New Covenants of the Bible, and sharing all things in common.
