The Israelite School of Universal Practical Knowledge (ISUPK) was formed in 1969 by leaders who were concerned about the conditions of their people and differences among the growing Hebrew Israelite Movement.

Under the leadership of commanding general Yahanna, who went through Hebrew academy and rose through the ranks of the Isupk to become a 13-shield general, the ISUPK has bypassed other black Hebrew Israelite groups to become the top of the Black Hebrew Israelite Movement.

The ISUPK has many community outreach programs such as free bible classes, food and clothing programs, employment assistance, and legal aid advice. another initiative of the ISUPK is an extensive prison program that includes bible classes to aid in the rehabilitation of inmates. these programs are available throughout the country and abroad including the Caribbean and the United Kingdom. ISUPK has also provided aid to those in need in countries such as Haiti and Mexico experiencing civil unrest and scarce resources.

The ISUPK has gained traction in the media recently due in part to celebrities publicly affiliating with the Black Hebrew Israelite Movement. Celebrities such as Kanye West, Kyrie Irving, Kendrick Lamar, and others acknowledge the tenets of the black Hebrew Israelites. One of the primary tenets is that according to the Bible, the true descendants of the 12 tribes of Israel are the so-called Blacks, Hispanics, and Native American Indians. Due to ignorance and racism, this is treated as controversial and a conspiracy theory.

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has labeled ISUPK a “hate group” despite ISUPK’s rejection of violence of any kind when it’s not in self-defense. They do not personally attack anyone when they speak publicly but instead, teach the Bible to the people they want to uplift that the rest of the world rejects. these men are taught by Commanding General Yahanna to be compassionate and caring. Yet, they are often on the receiving end of unprovoked negativity. most recently they became the victims of a terrorist attack in Indianapolis. a supporter of Palestine confessed to purposely driving a vehicle into our building, claiming they thought Isupk were supporters of the state of Israel. They saw the star of David (called Shield of David in correct translation) on the building. The Isupk points out how it’s acceptable for other races to fight oppression and condemn the injustices of their people. marches, protests, and shouts of “free Palestine” are heard in downtown areas, and college campuses throughout the USA. These protests often end up inciting riots and arrests but those involved are never condemned or labeled as a hate group. Commanding General Yahanna has been at the forefront of the fight against the marginalization and racism against Blacks, Hispanics, and Native American Indians for over 30 years. He has the solution to fight the problems facing these people as well as America and the world.
