Prison for Homeschooling Parents in Germany

On October 18, 2004, seven fathers from our Community in Klosterzimmern, Germany were taken to prison for their beliefs. Their wives were awaiting imprisonment for a time, but never arrested.

You cannot change a true conviction with fines and imprisonment.


As of 2012, our communities in Germany have a positive working relationship with the government in Germany. The German authorities found a unique way for us to comply with the laws of the German people as we train our children in the ways of our God. We are thankful for how our God provides servants in government that help people who are trying to do good.

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.
