Almost exactly a year ago, I wrote a post for my old blog called ‘Christian Jews’.
For new readers who don’t know what happened to that old blog, I decided to take the whole thing down a few months ago, shortly after I found the smoking gun that clearly showed how the State of Israel used Directed Energy Weapons to cause the deaths of 45 people at Meron last L’Ag B’Omer, directly and indirectly.
Long story short, I was literally scared they were going to come after me, if I kept the blog up, so I decided to take the whole thing down and start over.
You can read more about that decision HERE.
Point is, I had a huge amount of research on that blog, which I saved offline, and which I’m still trying to figure out how to ‘mine’ and put together as books…. At some point.
And one of those blog posts was about the ancestor of the SHACH, called Akiva of Salonica.
First, I’m just going to cut and paste what I wrote back then, in italics below, (you can see the original cached copy HERE), on May 7, 2021, and then I’ll update it with more pertinent information, as things have moved on quite a bit since then.
I’ve been busy putting together a real family tree for the more ‘interesting’ Jewish families, where there’s been an obvious cover-up of the real details and information.
In the process of doing that, I kept tripping over weird names, and weird snippets of information, that hinted that certain members of these families had formally converted to xtianity. And I was amazed at just how many of these weird names I kept tripping over, despite all the cover up that’s gone on.
Let me give a few concrete examples:
Exhibit 1: Paulus Renatus (aka Lob Oppenheim)
Here’s a snippet about him, from HERE:
Lob Oppenheim – Paulus Renatus The first Frankfurt Jew about whose conversion and its accompanying circumstances more detailed information is available was Lob Oppenheim, who informed the city council of his intention in August 1537 and at the same time complained that his wife Edel (also: nobility) refuse to convert with him.
Notice that this was happening a good 100 years before Shabtai Tzvi, and a good 50 years AFTER Jews from Spain and Portugal had been forced to go into exile, or convert under Ferdinand and Isabella.
Now, if you go HERE – the German Wikipedia article for the Oppenheim family – you’ll see that (despite a clumsy attempted cover up…), we can identify the xtian ‘Paulus Renatus’ as one and the same as the Jewish Judah Loeb Oppenheim of Frankfurt – married to Edel.
It says that – at least initially – Edel, his wife, refused to convert with him.
But if you continue reading down that list of ‘Oppenheims’ in Frankfurt who directly descended from ‘Paulus Renatus’, you quickly see that there are way more relatives listed as ‘Christian Jews’ in this family, including:
The grandson of Paulus Renatus, was also called Juda Löb (Löw) Oppenheim. His wife’s mother’s uncle (‘Amschel von Schleusingen’) was another xtian convert called Hans Cunrath.
[Ed. note: His two wives were both ‘Gunzburgs‘, and I also just learned that Akiva Frankfurter Guggenheim’s ancestor was ALSO R’ Akiva HaKohen Katz of Uban – who the SHACH also descends from. Read on below. It’s also possible that ‘Amschel von Schleusingen is actually Akiva frankfurter’s brother, not his alter ego.]
One of (secret xtian) ‘Akiva Frankfurter Guggenheim’s’ daughters, called Rechle Wetzlar, was the mother of Ella Rothschild – the progenitor of the famous Rothschild clan.
That’s not a coincidence.
Going back to that Wikipedia entry for the Oppenheim family, we next learn this:
Judah Lob Oppenheim #2, the grandson of Paulus Renatus, had another brother called Meyer Oppenheim (1580-1640).
Meyer also converted out to xtianity, as did his children.
But his wife Breindlen refused to be baptised, and so began a long, protracted divorce that lasted for many years, and caused an enormous chillul Hashem in both the Jewish Frankfurt community, and also amongst the xtians.
Here‘s a snippet of what was going on then:
Meir Oppenheim converted on December 21, 1606 to Christianity and took the name John Daniel Lichtenstein in. His wife Brendle (Brendlin) did not convert, but their children were baptized.
She demanded a divorce from him , he refused this and the disputes lasted until after 1620… because Lichtenstein demanded a share of 13,500 guilders for himself from the joint property with his wife, it was a sum of 18,000 guilders… [I]n November 1610 he sued his “former Jewish housewife” and her relatives as well….
Meir Oppenheimer / Johann Daniel Lichtenstein fell away from the Christian faith after being baptized, became Jewish again and fled to Poland. His brothers Mosche “Zum Schwert” and Juda Löb “Zum White Löwen” were assumed to have been the escape helpers. They fled from the threat of torture to force a confession and turned to the Supreme Court , whereupon the council issued a judgment that forced Moshe to pay 9,000 guilders and Löb 3,000 guilders.
After this judgment, Meir was baptized again in 1626.
You see what I mean?
These guys just flipped in and out of xtianity or Judaism as it suited them – and then carried on being the leaders and ‘rabbis’ of the Jewish community.
For example, here’s what happened to Meir’s son:
Hieronimus Lichtenstein became a rabbi after his father fell away from Christianity, professed again Christian baptism and became a Protestant pastor…. baptized in 1626.
You can read more about Meir’s descendants, the openly xtian ‘Liechensteins’, HERE.
There are a LOT more links with the Oppenheim family to explore, but we’ll leave that here for now, as I still have a couple more ‘Christian-Jews’ to introduce you too.
Exhibit 2: John Ernuszt I
Now, I’m sure you’ve never heard of ‘John Ernuszt‘. So let me introduce you, a little:
John Ernuszt, Sr. was Ban of Slavonia from 1473 to 1476. He was born into a Jewish family in Vienna. He moved to Buda, the capital of the Kingdom of Hungary, and converted to Roman Catholicism. He became a purveyor to the royal court, which enabled him to meet Matthias Corvinus, King of Hungary.
Ernuszt inspired Matthias’s reform of the royal revenues (especially the centralization of their administration and the abolishment of tax exemptions) in 1467. In the same year, the king made him royal treasurer. Six years later, he was appointed ban of Slavonia and became one of the barons of the realm.
John Ernuszt Sr has two sons with his wife Catherine (the records don’t know if she was Jewish or not).
One, Sigismund Ernuszt, is made the Bishop of Pecs in 1473, while the second one, John Ernuszt Jnr, follows his dad into dealing with the royal finances.
Here’s a little about what happens next (from Wikipedia):
The Ernuszt brothers who held more than 3,500 peasant households were among the wealthiest landowners in Hungary in 1494…. In 1495, he received the estate of Munkács (Mukacheve, Ukraine) from the King….
His brother, Bishop Sigismund was murdered in summer 1505. His three retainers (John Gyulai, Louis Szerecsen and Albert Cupi) strangled him to seize his wealth. Sigismund’s legal heir was his younger brother, John… John Ernuszt brought charges against the assassins in spring 1506, also accusing them of misappropriation of the Ernuszt property. However they were never sentenced….
In 1514, John initiated a second lawsuit against the three retainers… John’s lawyers accused the suspects of murder, the falsification of Sigismund’s last will and embezzlement of 1,3 million gold florins….
Following John’s death, his only living son Caspar initiated a new trial in 1536, however he died in 1540 and the House of Ernuszt became extinct, making the lawsuit is obsolete.
I discovered ‘John Ernuszt’ in a weird way.
As you know, I’m going through the family trees of a few ‘interesting’ families, and I’d got up to trying to figure out who the ancestors of the SHACH were, Shabbatai ben Meir HaKohen Katz Ashkenazi.
(That’s a whole other story… and I’m not sure I’m ever going to be able to really tell it. But I digress.)
So, I get to this geni profile of ‘R Akiva HaKohen Katz’ of Budin‘ (1460-1496), and here’s a little of what I read:
“There was a man here in Prague that was great in Torah, wealth and Yichus that came to Prague from those that were exiled from the holy congregation of Uban (Budapest) because of a libel that was fabricated there.
This man was called Rabbi Akiva from Uban. [Son of Rabbi Yitzchok HaKohen son of Rabbi Akiva Kakohen the elder, Av Bais Din of Saloniki (Greece) who were both exiles from Spain, all descendants of The Kohen Gadol Elie.]
Rabbi Akiva was called to the Yeshiva above (died) in the year 5256 (1496). He was known as an expert in Royal Court customs and because of jealousy, the nobles of Hungary in Uban fabricated a libel. He came here (Prague) and built a great, respected house and spread tora in the generation of Rabbi Yaakov POLLACK who was the Av Bais Din here at that time. [Listed as an advisor of King Mathais of Hungary by Encyclopedia Judaica.]…
One of his sons was Rabbi Gershon father of Rabbi Shimshon HaCohen, father of Rabbi Yitzhak HaCohen-Katz, son-in-law of the great Maharal of Prague.
There’s a few things that strike me as odd about this, initially.
First, ‘R’ Akiva HaKohen Katz’ has an alter ego, where’s he’s apparently also known as ‘Furst von Open’.
Whenever you see ‘von’, that means the person was ennobled. But hard as I look, I can’t find any record anywhere of a Jewish advisor to the Hungarian king who was ennobled at this time…. except, for John Ernuszt I, the converted Jew.
Akiva comes from ‘Budin’, and John lives in ‘Buda’ – the same place.
Akiva is apparently at the Hungarian court between 1460-1496, and John is apparently at the Hungarian court at exactly the same time.
How is that for a CO-INC-ID-ENCE?
Akiva HaKohen Katz then moves from Hungary to Prague…. at exactly the same time that ‘John Ernuszt’ apparently dies, after becoming embroiled in a massive dispute, or ‘libel’ with the Hungarian nobles.
If you go HERE, you start to figure out a little more about why the nobles start revolting against ‘John Ernuszt’:
[Hungarian King Matthias] entrusted the administration of the Crown’s customs to John Ernuszt, a converted Jewish merchant. Within two years, Ernuszt was responsible for the collection of all ordinary and extraordinary taxes, and the management of the salt mines.
Matthias’s tax reform caused a revolt in Transylvania.
So, I have to ask:
What are the chances that there would be two Jews, one ‘converted’ and one not, working for the same Hungarian king, at exactly the same time, both involved in ‘libels’ with the Hungarian nobels, and both ‘ennobled’ at a time when very few commoners – never mind Jews – were being ennobled?
And not only that – there are no records of ‘Furst von Open’ – the apparent alter ego of R’ Akiva HaKohen Katz.
I’m a big believe in Occam’s Razor.
The simplest explanation is usually the correct one.
And the simplest explanation here is that ‘R’ Akiva HaKohen of Budin’ is one and the same as ‘John Ernuszt of Buda’, the converted Jew whose son became a Hungarian Bishop, and who married a bunch of apparently non-Jewish women.
Ad kan, from last year.
Since then, there’s been a lot of additional information flowing down the pipe of ‘Real Jewish History’, not least, the recent revelations about the Khazar royal family being i) probably Karaite converts and / or partially descended from Sadduccee-Karaites (i.e. ‘Kohanim’ and ii) deciding to unilaterally start identifying themselves as ‘HaKohen Al-Khazaris’.
Ever since I saw that, I’ve had more of an eye open, for where these fake Khazari ‘HaKohens’ might have ended up, in the Jewish communities of the middle ages.
But let’s get back to focussing on ‘Akiva HaKohen Katz of Budin’, ancestor of the SHACH, and also ancestor of a bunch of two-faced ‘Christian Jews’ including people like Amschel von Schleusingen / Akiva Frankfurter Guggenheim.
And very possibly, one and the same as the ennobled, baptised, John Ernuszt, corrupt Hungarian tax collector extraordinaire.
Since I wrote this article, I have tripped across a few other ‘Christian-Jewish’ families – all court Jews, who held very high positions in the non-Jewish world.
They were also were usually the ‘Chief Rabbis’ of the Jewish communities, too, so they could enforce the ‘Jew Tax’, and other dictates, that the non-Jewish rulers meted out to the Jewish communities, by fair means or foul.
The OPPENHEIM / OPPENHEIMERS (mentioned above) fit this mold exactly, and it’s on my list to do a detailed post about them, very soon.
And there is another family, too, the FISZELS, that fits this mold too, and also has branches of the family tree converting out to xtianity and getting ennobled – while their siblings become the ancestors of people like the (Sabbatean-Frankist) SHORS, the (alter-ego of Shabtai Tzvi) SHACH, the (Sabbatian prophets and believers including) Mordechai ‘Mokiah’ Eisenstadt and his brother, Meir Panim Eisenstadt – and many other ‘Sabbatian -Frankists’, too, that I’m still in the process of figuring out.
Let’s end this post with a closer look at the FISZELS, and how they also tie-up with the SHACH – because as I keep telling you, these people just marry each other over and over again, down the generations.
The following details come from the YIVO article on the Fiszel family HERE, which I highly recommend you read, as I’m just doing this bare bones to keep ‘information overload’ at a minimum.
The most influential family in Kraków’s Jewish community from the 1470s to the mid-sixteenth century.
Members of the Fiszel family served as creditors to King Casimir the Jagiellonian and his sons Jan Olbracht, Aleksander, and Sigismund I.
Moshe Fiszel and his wife Rachel Moyseszowa , from Prague, are in charge of the Polish Kings’ mint, and also lend them a lot of money, as their official, tax collecting ‘court Jews’.
They have six kids. One of them, (Moshe) ‘Stefan Fiszel Powidzki H. Korab‘ converts to xtianity, snippet from YIVO:
Mosheh (Stefan) Fiszel served as a creditor to kings Jan Olbracht and Aleksander even before his conversion to Christianity.
In 1494, he represented the interests of the Jewish community in their disputes with non-Jewish residents of Kraków, and in that same year he was arrested with other Kraków Jews.
He served as collector of Jewish taxes in Great Poland (1499, 1503) and as director of the salt storehouse in Poznań (1504). In 1499, when the Jews of Gniezno accused him of excessive tax collection, he received the support of the archbishop of Gniezno, Cardinal Fryderyk Jagiellończyk.
After converting to Catholicism (between 1503 and 1504); Stefan was ennobled by Zygmunt the Old, receiving the Korab coat of arms.
His sons Jan and Stanisław also converted to Catholicism; their godmother was Elizabeth, the widow of King Casimir the Jagiellonian. Stefan divorced his wife, who chose to remain Jewish.
One of Stefan Powidzki’s brother is Efraim Fisczel, also known by the xtian name ‘Franczek’. Snippet from YIVO:
Efrayim (Franczek) Fiszel, Stefan’s brother, was appointed in 1512 to the position of general collector of Jewish taxes in Little Poland…
In 1524, Sigismund I (the Old), at [Queen] Bona’s request, named Franczek and his wife Chwałka (Falka) royal servitors, thus removing Franczek from the jurisdiction of any other court but that of the king or, in smaller matters, of the queen. Both were freed from the payment of Jewish taxes.
This ‘Ephraim Fishel’ is one of the most mysteriously ‘disappeared’ ancestors on geni, but his family tree leads to some of the most well known rabbis in the Ashkenazi world, including:
- The ABD of Krakow, R’ Aryeh Leib Fischeles Kalusziner
- The ABD of Breslau, R’ Isaac Joshua Heshel Teomim
- R’ Zecharia Mendel, author of ‘Be’er Heitev’
- The Chacham Tzvi (via the Sha’ar Ephraim)
And many, many, MANY others, including most of the ‘interesting’ families I’ve been researching for two years.
You can read more about him HERE, which links to ‘Hebrew books’, snippet below:
But the links back to this original ‘Ephraim Fishel’, and his ongoing connections to Polish royalty are all deliberately broken.
For example, the YIVO website tells us this about his son, Moshe Fishel:
Mosheh Fiszel (1480–1541), Franczek’s son, was a physician; he married Ester, who served in the court of Queen Bona.
In 1532, after the death of the kabbalist and rabbi Asher Lemel, he became rabbi of the so-called “Polish” Jewish community of Kazimierz.
In 1541 he was appointed, together with the rabbi of Lublin, Shalom Shakhnah, to be the chief rabbi of Little Poland and Rus’, a post that included the right to excommunicate and judge Jews for religious transgressions.
Soon after his appointment, he was accused of converting Christians to Judaism. He was tortured and died soon after his release from prison.
Personally, I’m not sure that last bit happened.
It’s just way too convenient how all these interesting ‘missing links’ just kind of die a hero’s death, with no clues about who their descendants continue to be in the Jewish community.
So I went looking in Polish, to see if I could get the real story of what happened to Moshe Fishel. This comes from Polish Wikipedia, HERE:
In 1532, Moses Fishel took over as rabbi of the so-called Polish Jewish community, replacing his late uncle Asher Lemel.
In 1541, he became General rabbi of Malopolsk and Russia, a position he shared with Rabbi Shalom Shahn of Lublin. With the confidence of the King, they were given the power to sue for religious offenses.
In the same year, Moses Fishel was accused of complicity in a ritual murder, in connection with which he was burned at the stake..
That explains a lot, doesn’t it?
This screenshot comes from HERE – note the dates:
So, the ‘Ester’ who served in the Polish Queen Bona’s court, who marries ‘Moses Fishel’, nephew of the xtian ‘Stefan Powditsky’ – who is burned at the stake after being accused of performing a ritual murder – turns out to be the daughter of the legendary ‘Eliyahu Baal Shem of Chelm’.
You know, this guy:
Snippet from HERE:
“Hasidic tradition records Eliyahu Baal Shem in the 16th century, founding a “Nistarim” mystical brotherhood to offer physical and spiritual encouragement to the Jewish populace, from which Hasidism later emerged.”
(Lubavitcher Rabbi’s Memoires, Joseph Isaac Schneersohn, Kehot publications, 3 volumes)
“Not many people with this title have been recorded (outside of the Baal Shem Tov, the Baal Shem of Michelstadt was one example) and none have it today.
The first recorded person to receive the title was Eliyahu of Chelm.
Other Baalei Shem include Rabbi Eliyahu of Worms (the founder of the movement variously known as “Macheneh Yisrael”, the “Nistarim”, and the “Holy Brotherhood”), Rabbi Joel of Ropshitz (a student of Rabbi Yoel Sirkis), Rabbi Adam Baal Shem, and Hayyim Samuel Jacob Falk (known as the Baal Shem of London).”
Amazing, isn’t it, how all this just keeps coming together.
We know ‘Hayyim Samuel Jacob Falk’ well.
He’s the demon-commanding, black-magic practising, Order of the Golden Dawn-founding father-in-law of false messiah Jacob Frank.
And now, I’m starting to wonder if his surname ‘Falk’ is a throw back to his ancestors at the Polish court, “Franczek and his wife Chwałka (Falka)”.
(You see what I mean, about every answer just creating 4 million more questions.)
And ‘Eliyahu the Baal Shem of Worms’ – aka Eliyahu Loanz – is also related to another famous tax-collecting Court Jew, namely Josel of Rosheim.
(Josel of Rosheim’s family were also accused of performing satanic ritual murders.… All this is starting to hit very close to home, isn’t it?)
Snippet about Eliyahu of Worms from HERE:
German rabbi and cabalist; born at Frankfort-on-the-Main 1555; died at Worms July, 1636. He belonged to the Rashi family, and on his mother’s side was the grandson of Johanan Luria, and on his father’s of Joselmann of Rosheim.
After having studied in his native city under the direction of Jacob Ginzburg and Akiba Frankfort, Loans went to Cracow, where he attended the lectures of Menahem Mendel.
While there he prepared for publication the “Darke Mosheh” of Moses Isserles. At the beginning of the seventeenth century Loans was called to the rabbinate of Fulda, which he left in 1612, occupying sucessively the rabbinates of Hanau, Friedberg (1620), and Worms (1630), in which last-named city he remained until his death.
That ‘Akiba Frankfort’ appears to be the same guy we started off with, at the top of this post, viz:
‘Amschel von Schleusingen’ had a double identity, and was known as ‘Akiva Frankfurter Guggenheim‘ within the Jewish community.
His two wives were both ‘Gunzburgs‘, and I also just learned that Akiva Frankfurter Guggenheim’s ancestor was ALSO R’ Akiva HaKohen Katz of Uban – who the SHACH also descends from. It’s also possible that Amschel von Schleusingen is Akiva Frankfurter’s brother, not his alter ego.
Before I forget, ‘R Moshe Yehuda Ashkenazi (Fishel’s)’ son, EPHRAIM FISHEL, marries VALENTINA – the daughter of the MaHaRSHaL, R Shlomo Luria.
(I don’t know if that happened before or after his dad is burned at the stake after being accused of participating in ritual murder, but that kind of explained why he got scrubbed out of history…)
And all of a sudden, we are back deep, deep in the heartland of Ashkenazi ‘rabbinic royalty’.
Another of Stefan Powditzki’s siblings, Esther, marries Rabbi Yaakov Pollak (1460-1552).
You can read more about him, in Google translate HERE.
Pollack’s widowed mother-in-law was a rich and famous woman… [i.e. Rachel Moyzeszowa].
She married her second daughter, who was still a minor, a Talmudic scholar David Zener. Regretting this step, she wanted the marriage to be annulled; but the husband refused to allow the divorce, and the mother, on Pollack’s advice, sought the dissolution of the union by filing a refusal ( mi’un ) on the part of the wife, allowed by Talmudic law .
Menachem of Merseburg a recognized authority, however, decided half a century ago that a formal letter of divorce was necessary in such a case, although his opinion was not supported by Eastern rabbis. So when Pollack declared his daughter-in-law’s marriage invalid, all the rabbis Germany they protested and even excommunicated him… until he obeyed Menachem’s decision.
Pollak’s main students are Shalom Shakhna of Lublin – his suspected Karaite brother in law – and Maharam of Padua, grand-dad of ‘King of Poland for a day Saul Wahl ‘.
Yaakov Pollak and Ester Fiszel have at least three children.
One, R’Avraham Pollak, ABD Lubamla and Brisk marries SARAH LURIA – the daughter of the MaHaRSHaL.
We keep coming back to the MaHaRSHaL.
Remember this snippet from the previous post, on the connections between ‘Saul Wahl King of Poland for a day’ and the story told about the SHACH’s daughter, Esther HaTzaddika?
Another of their kids has a very convoluted family tree, that eventually leads down to Moshe Kremer, the ABD of Vilna and the ancestor of the Vilna Gaon.
And then another of Esther and Yaakov Pollak’s kids, ‘Chana Yonah’, marries none other than the (suspected Karaite) Chief Rabbi of Lublin,
Shalom Shachne (HaKohen) Kahana (Cohen Tzedek) of Lublin.
His daughter Golda marries R’ Moses Isserles, the REMA.
While his son, R’ Israel Shachna (aka ‘R’ Yisrael Charif of Lublin’) leads down to the extended SHOR clan, many of him were leading lights in the Frankist-Sabbatean family network – and also the ancestors of the Alter Rebbe of Chabad.
And you remember just how enthusiastically the Rebbe Rayatz was bigging-up all these ‘alternative Baal Shems’ (who happened to be conjuring demons…) in his memoirs, of course.
So where does the SHACH fit into all this?
Well, maybe like this:
1 is the REMA, Moses Isserles.
2 is the SHACH.
Or maybe, like this (the more convoluted ‘official’ route):
R’AKIVA HAKOHEN KATZ, UBAN has two brothers, R’ CHAIM HAKOHEN KATZ, and R’ NAFTALI HERZ KATZ.
The REMA’s third wife, mother of most of his kids, SHPRINTZE, descends from R’Chaim.
The SHACH descends from R’ Naftali Herz.
One of the SHACH’s wives (he had two – same as is said of Shabtai Tzvi, before he became the ‘false messiah) was Yenta Leah Wolf Meisels – the g-g-grandaughter of the REMA, like this:
REMA > DREIZEL ISSERLES marries SIMCHA BUNIM MEISELS, ABD CRACOW > LEAH BUNIM MEISELS marries R’ ISAAC WOLF BUNIM MEISELS of VILNA marries SARAH EIDELES> YENTA LEAH WOLF MEISELS marries the SHACH.
Just one, big, happy family!
We’ll stop there.
I think I just tripped over the real identity of the ‘Falka’ / Chwalka who marries Ephraim Fishel, brother of xtian Stefan Powdiszki.
And whaddya know?
It’s yet another ‘Christian Jew’ with royal connections.
But I’ll keep that story for a future blog, there’s plenty enough to chew over in this one.
Hopefully, you are starting to see that IF the SHACH = Shabtai Tzvi, that didn’t just blossom out of a total vacuum.
The very small ‘core’ of our leaders in the Jewish world for at least the last 5-600 years literally pop in and out of xtianity, enrich themselves by oppressing the poor with taxes and other forms of financial corruption, and have been dabbling in demon-worshipping black magic and possibly also ritual murders…
Doesn’t this start to explain – a lot!!! – about what we are seeing in our world today?
Doesn’t it also start to explain so many of the ‘mysteries of Jewish genealogy’ – which we are really starting to clean up here, in an awesome and disturbing way?
And finally – doesn’t it explain why God has actually been totally justified in His treatment of the Jewish community, over the last 2,000 years +?
There is no suffering without sin.
(Which also includes ‘sins’ we did in previous lives, that we are now being reincarnated in order to pay down, even if we’re totally upright and pious in this lifetime.)
And God is truly righteous and merciful in all His ways.
And more and more, it’s looking like we may have actually got off easy, even with all the suffering we’ve endured down the last 2,000 years, when we start to understand just how ‘unholy’ Jewish life may actually have been, up until now.
