James Davis, Jr. (Me-Kha-ale-ben Yehudah) was born on August 26, 1936, to the late Hattie and James Davis, in Mississippi.

Me-Kha-ale attended and graduated from the Chicago Public School System. He went into the Air Force right after high school, for four years.

Me-Kha-ale married Joan Wytch Davis (Yocheved-Baht-Yisrael) on November 8, 1958 and had 13 beautiful children. In 1965, Me-Kha-ale, with his wife, was introduced to the Hebrew way of life. Shortly thereafter they became members of “A-Beta” Hebrew Center in Chicago, Illinois.

In 1967, the family migrated to Liberia, West Africa where they resided for nearly three years. Then they traveled to Israel where they lived for 13 years.

Brother Me-Kha-ale was a man of many talents. He was an X-Ray technician. He taught the Hebrew way of life all over the world. He attended college in American and Israel. He retired from the Hamilton County Health Department. He did missions to Ghana.

Me-Kha-ale-be Yehudah transitioned on September 12, 2021. He was preceded in death by his parents, Hattie and James; his wife, Yokie of 58 years; brother, George; two sisters, Shirley and Ruth; two sons, Ben-david and Zechariah; and one daughter, Emmanuellah.

Me-Kha-ale leaves to cherish his life: his children, Butch, Reuben (Margaret), Ezrah, Yivkhar (Tamar), Neflah, Naphtaili, Shimshon, Gamliel, Natanyah, Baruch, Azariah, Tziona, Devoah, Tammy and Allen; grandchildren, Yahsmin, Avraham, Mekahale, Dina, Yael, Shirakyah, Elonah, Yafah, Yivkhar, Mekael, Jacob, Meleek, Bendavid, Imanuel, Ariela, Gavriel, Rachel, Naomi, Elijah, Zachariah, Ezra, Shoshana, Elisha, Daveed, Shemuel, Isaiah, Aveed and Bonnie; 30 great-grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews and friends.
