Translated from the Czech (Cheryl – web mistress)
The Twelve Tribes is a Bible-based group and they use the Hebrew name Yahshua (Jesus) for the Son of God.
Communal children cannot engage in fantasy or play with toys or watch television or listen to worldly music.
Books, newspapers, libraries, radio, Internet and holiday sweets are off limits to the children and adults.
Corporal punishment is also part of the children’s bleak life in the community. The baptized adults teach that corporal punishment should be practiced with love and that the child should accept his thrashing with gratitude. After he is walloped the child must thank the adult that punished him/her.
The community home schools its children.
