OK, let’s begin the crazy story.

Around two weeks ago, you’ll recall, I started to investigate the Interfaith Elijah Institute. You can read about where I got up to HERE.

After that post, I started clicking around, like you do, trying to pin down who and what is really behind the Elijah Institute, and it’s barf-making ‘HOPE‘ centre – apparently slated to overlook the Temple Mount, but they are being very quiet about where it’s actually meant to be located:

====

It looks to me like it’s somewhere around Musrara – maybe even the Homa HaShlishit region…

So, in the middle of writing this I tried to figure out where this monstrosity is actually being built, because take a look at this screenshot:

This place is totally massive!!!

====

And after a bit more poking around, I found the location: Nevi’im Street, behind the current Ministry of Education building right in the heart of Meah Shearim:

====

I’m willing to bet A LOT of money that hardly anyone in Jerusalem knows about this….

At least, until now.

You can see the Elijah Institute’s glossy brochure for yourself HERE, and here is a screenshot of some of the people sitting on their board:

====

Did you know that the late Jonathan Sacks was on their board? Or the late Doron Bakshi? Or the late She’ar Yashuv Cohen, amongst others?

Nope, neither did I.

(And from what I can tell, sitting on that board looks to be taking your life insurance premiums way, way up. And also, just a quick look at the Wikipedia entries linked to above for each of those named people should start to make the hair stand up on the back of your arms.)

But I digress.

====

So anyway, I’m researching some of the ‘interesting’ groups funding the Elijah Institute, and as I’m looking up the profile for the late John Templeton, I notice that he, too, was a billionaire who made all his money, o so fortuitously, in the financial markets.

If you listen to this interview with former Dutch financial whiz kid Ronald Bernard (which I warn you now, is pretty disturbing), you’ll start to figure out that any time someone is making big money, it’s always rooted in something illegal.

All the ‘import / export’, all the stuff with currency markets, all the stocks – everything is just a front for all the illegal activities, the drug running, the people trafficking, etc etc etc that’s really making the big money in the world – and always has been:

====

Back to the story.

So, I see that John Templeton was a member of a secret society that very few people have ever heard of, at Yale, called the Elihu Society.

Wow, so weird. We have the ‘Elijah Interfaith Institute’, then we have the ‘Elihu Society’ at Yale.

Me being me, I figure these things have to be connected somehow, and maybe also leading back to the Vilna Gaon, (also Elijah / Eliyahu / Elihu).

The Elihu Society is super-secretive – even more private than the infamous ‘Skull and Bones‘ secret society, that is that favorite of conspiracy theorists, and also deeply connected to the Bush family of presidents, politicians and businessmen, amongst others.

HERE‘s the Elihu society’s website – but you won’t find anything much there, if you’re not a member.

====

Wikipedia is a little more helpful, and that’s where I discovered the following:

“Elihu membership has included journalists, authors, academics, independent and documentary filmmakers, U.S. Ambassadors, government officials, urban planners, artists, members of Congress, social activists, governors, actors, a Chairman of U.S. Federal Reserve, pop singers, medical doctors, architects, United Nations officials, environmental lawyers, United States Senators, composers, including David Shire and Maury Yeston, businessmen, foundation executives, environmentalists and others.”

That’s quite an impressive list, hey?

And nearly all of them are totally anonymous.

Let’s continue.

====

I also learned from Wikipedia that the ‘Elihu’ in question is one ‘Elihu Yale‘ – one of the founders of Yale University, and a guy who clearly carried a lot of strange secrets with him.

Now, let me state up front that I’ve only just started the process of unpacking this huge can of worms, so this post is serving as an introduction to this subject, not as the last word.

====

I click on to read about Elihu Yale, and I quickly realise that I’m dealing with a crypto-Jew, here.

How do I come to that conclusion?

That’s going to be a very long, very complicated story.

We’ll get to it in future posts as part of this whole process, I promise, but for now, it’s enough to know that colorful Elihu is having affairs with women who are known marranos, and making tons of money illegally via his contacts with traders and merchants in Madras that contravene his senior position at the Honorable East India Company.

He’s also caught up, somehow, with the flourishing slave trade, but all of that is pretty much whitewashed out of history.

There’s just the small hints left, like the portraits of Elihu standing next to a small, black servant who has an iron manacle around their neck. This screen shot comes from HERE:

====

Next thing I read, is that Elihu Yale (an obvious crypto-Jew…) retires to his massive estates in no less a place than North Wales.

And here’s where the story takes one of those bizarre ‘twists’ that regular readers of this blog have perhaps come to expect.

If you go HERE, you can read a short biographical history of Elihu Yale’s family. Here’s the bit that caught my attention (at least, initially):

The last 22 years of his life were spent between Plas Grono and his home in London. He died in London but was buried in St Giles Churchyard.

Plas Grono is in the middle of the Welsh countryside, in an area called Wrexham.

My mother’s family – non-Jews – hails from that part of the world, and so I spent a fair bit of time there, as a child.

====

In fact, as I’m sitting there, pondering on what are the chances for a family of slave trading crypto-Jews to be hanging out in the Welsh countryside, very close to where my own grandfather was born, I suddenly remember something that sends shivers down my spine.

My grandfather, or Taid, (to give him the Welsh term for grandpa) never spoke about his family.

My great-grandfather was an alcoholic land-owner who left behind a big mess, in a lot of different ways. There was a lot of bad blood between his children when he died, as a result of a yucky will that pitted the children against each other and essentially meant that they didn’t speak to each other ever again.

But when I was around 15, I asked my Taid to show me where he’d lived, as a child, and he took me to this somewhat creepy looking Georgian red brick mansion, that had a pair of really weird ‘blackamoor’ heads on the gateposts.

This screenshot of the place comes from HERE:

====

Those two ‘blackamoor’ busts, that had been there for over 350 years since the house was built, got stolen 10 years ago.

When I asked my Taid what they were, he told me that the original people who’d built the house had made their fortune in the slave trade.

Now, I don’t know if my Taid’s family are the same people who actually built the house.

There’s still a lot of this I’m trying to figure out, and it could be that my great grandfather simply bought it from the descendants of the original owners back in 1855.

====

But what I can tell you is this:

There was apparently a group of very wealthy crypto Jews – who outwardly acted as though they were good protestants – who owned large tracts of Welsh countryside, and who built large mansions there, who made their fortune from the slave trade, amongst other things.

At least one of those slave trading Welsh crypto-Jews became notorious as the namesake of Yale University.

But the more I look into this story, the more I’m starting to find that these ‘dual identity’ crypto Jews crop up all over the place at some very crucial junctures in Jewish – and global – history.

And that’s not a mistake or accident.

====

We’ll stop there for now, but BH, if God helps me, I’m going to go as far back to the start as I can, to figure out, together with you, how this group of ‘crypto Jews’ have been pulling the strings behind the scenes for at least two thousand years.

When it suits them, they ‘act’ Jewish.

Even ‘uber’ Jewish.

Even ‘uber orthodox’ Jewish.

But really?

Their belief system is NOT authentically Jewish, and never has been.

For at least 2,000 years, they have been instrumental in setting up one ‘false idol’, one ‘false messiah’ after another, to lead Jews – and everyone else – away from the true service of Hashem.

But at this point in history, it looks like Hashem has finally had enough of them, and is starting the process of calling them out.

So, we’ll continue to uncover all the lies they’ve been telling, as long as God helps me to do it, and we’ll hopefully finally figure out exactly who is behind the mess the whole world is in right now, and what we can do to finally put it right.

Just over a year ago, the State-sponsored persecution against Rabbi Berland began again, in earnest.

Remember this?

Which quickly led to this:

====

And then, within a week of the Rav being arrested in a brutal fashion, where he was pushed to the floor by the Israeli police in the middle of the shacharit prayers, the first case of Covid was reported by an Israeli, and later confirmed:

 The first case in Israel was confirmed on 21 February 2020, when a female citizen tested positive for coronavirus disease 2019 at the Sheba Medical Center after return from quarantine on the Diamond Princess ship in Japan.[3]

====

I’m finding it hard to get out of bed at the moment.

I’m scared of where all this is going, and what all this renewed lockdown means – especially for people like me, who haven’t bought into all the propaganda and don’t intend getting ‘vaccinated’ with whatever that poisonous stuff actually is.

====

Yesterday, my daughter got physically assaulted on a bus, for pulling down her mask to drink a cup of coffee.

She had the mask on under her chin, and was drinking her coffee, when a 50-something woman (hell-ooo Karenstarted screaming at her to put her mask on. My daughter is a) a teenager and b) my daughter, so clearly, she didn’t do what the woman wanted, and carried on drinking her coffee.

So then, this woman came over to her, ‘tripped on her’ and spilled her hot coffee all over my daughter and the friend who was sitting next to her.

Then, she took the coffee out of her hand and poured it all over her.

Then, she slapped my daughter in the face.

All the time screaming abuse (and apparently accompanied by other Karens on the bus, both men and women, who were also shouting abuse.)

Thank God, my daughter had three friends with her, who stood up for her, because she was so shocked by what was going on, she couldn’t speak.

So then, it became a huge ruckus, and the police were called.

====

I could wax self-righteous about this woman, and what she did on the bus.

And when my daughter first told me, I have to admit to being boiling mad.

But later, when I was discussing it with my husband, he reminded me that there are a bunch of moronic sheeple out there who have been thoroughly brainwashed into believing that people with no masks = mass murderers.

This woman saw my daughter pull down her pointless, worthless mask to slurp some coffee, and thought she was being murdered with Covid-19.

And of course, if a maskless ‘murderer’ comes after you, you defend yourself….

====

Another reader sent me a link to this video, where the Rav is making the case that hating people for doing things differently from you is sinat chinam, and sinat chinam (baseless hatred) is worse than being ‘vaccinated’ with some toxic, sterilisation potion straight from the New World Order’s big vat.

You can see that video here:

(I can’t get it to embed on the site, sorry.)

====

R’ Epstein makes a good point.

But for me personally, I’m not sure how far I can do it.

Sure, I believe in trying to bitul to Hashem’s will. I believe, in theory 100%, that whatever Hashem wants, I will try to give it to Him.

But I also know myself, and I know that I am not such an ‘angel of bitul’ that if that woman had slapped my daughter in front of me, I wouldn’t have ripped her face off.

And I’m not such an ‘angel of bitul’ that if we come down to the wire, where we are being mamash forced to have dangerous, experimental ‘vaccinations’ that I won’t resist that with all my might.

====

I get that the Karen on the bus thought, mistakenly, that my mask-less daughter was putting her life at risk.

But can I forgive that Karen for creating a world where she is enabling the government to put my daughter’s life at risk?

I don’t know.

I’m working on it.

I’m working on really internalising that Ein Od Milvado – there is only Hashem – as it applies to the current situation of lockdowns and forced ‘vaccinations’.

Where do I draw the line, between trying to fight for what’s right, and for trying to defend myself and my family, and just accepting God’s will?

I don’t know.

====

In the meantime, if we trace all this back to the beginning, we find it started with the unjust arrest of Rav Berland.

And I know it will ‘end’ with the release of Rav Berland.

But sometimes, as that event keeps getting pushed off again and again and again by the corrupt State of Israel, I start to feel a little despairing of this ever turning around.

====

Did anyone wake up, over the last 10 months, to notice that the Yeshiva World News is employing the same brainwashing ‘cultish’ techniques on its readers, in connection with Covid 1984, that it brazenly accused Shuvu Banim of?

Has anyone noticed that the same brutal, violent police that arrested the Rav have now come after the lefties protesting Netanyahu in Tel Aviv, and the chareidim protesting the army draft in Jerusalem, and the dati leumi crowds protesting Ahuvya Sandek’s murder?

Is anyone making the links between all the brainwashing and lies that flooded the media to get us to believe that Rav Berland was guilty of things he never did in a billion, trillion years, and all the brainwashing and lies flooding the media to encourage us all to believe in Covid-1984, masks and ‘vaccination’?

I don’t know.

====

But then, thank God for my husband.

He turned to me today, and with lawyerly precision said the following:

IF we really are in that period of time that is known as the ‘end of days’, then things are far, far sweeter right now, than they were meant to be.

He’s right.

(Don’t tell him that.)

Hard as all this is, at least mentally, it’s still way, way easier than all the doomsday prophecies that were meant to accompany this period of time.

After he told me that, I was able to get out of bed, and come downstairs to write this.

The Rav is sweetening everything with his mesirut nefesh.

I’m just praying that more people are going to realise that soon.

====

UPDATE:

So, I was thinking about what’s going on, and I realised that in some ways we already got the balm before the blow, if we have been following developments with the Rav.

For anyone who is feeling ‘stuck’ that psakei din from Bnei Brak need to be followed mindlessly and not questioned, please read this:

The first cracks in the ‘psak din’ against Rav Berland appear

And remember that we’re still dealing with fallible human beings here, not all-seeing angels.

Even the holiest amongst us can be misled and duped by cunning people.

And we don’t even need to talk about the bribery and blackmail that occurs with the ‘less than holiest’ amongst us.

====

And then, for those who still believe that our Kupat Holim and government can’t and won’t do any deliberate harm to the citizens of Israel, I wrote this comment underneath this article, on Ynet, which kind of sums up a lot of different things neatly, that I’ve gone into great detail about on this blog:

Sharon Alroy-Preis [head of the ministry’s public health services division] works for the Rothschild’s funded organisation Maoz:

https://www.maoz-il.org/en/alumni-projects/%D7%A9%D7%A8%D7%95%D7%9F-%D7%90%D7%9C%D7%A8%D7%A2%D7%99-%D7%A4%D7%A8%D7%99%D7%99%D7%A1/

The Rothschild’s Yad HaNadiv Foundation recently pumped $60 million into something called the Israeli Precision Medical Partnership, which is all about harvesting the Israeli population’s DNA for a Tissue Bank:

https://www.yadhanadiv.org.il/sites/default/files/media/document/2019-03/IPMP%20Roadmap.pdf

“It seeks to build on recent advances in biomedical research and combine genomic and post-genomic
studies with cutting-edge computational technologies, paving the road to the development of novel diagnostics and therapeutics.”

Netanyahu’s government signed an agreement with BigPharma in April 2019 – under the aegis of former Health Ministry Director Bar Siman Tov – to ‘share’ all the DNA info with them, without the informed consent of the public:

https://www.mobihealthnews.com/news/emea/gold-mine-data-driving-israels-billion-shekel-bet-digital-health

This is all about money and control, and has nothing to do with ‘saving people’s lives’.

====

BH, I’ve been researching all this stuff for months, already, thanks to what happened with the persecution of the Rav, and Shuvu Banim.

If that had never happened, I could also be one of those sheeple, shuffling off to get injected with who-knows-what in the name of public health, God forbid.

So at least in my dalet amot, I can see more and more how following the Rav, and not being willing to accept all the lies told about him, has mamash saved me and my family from so much hardship.

And long may that continue.

====

UPDATE 2:

I just got sent the following updates, about the situation with the Rav.

First, some advice for how to hang on the Tzaddik in these incredibly challenging times, plus a series of 10 new Tehillim that Rav Berland has requested that people recite, ideally 7 times a day:

“…[T]he only thing that will keep us sane is holding on to the Tzadik by reading daily TH (7 times) even if we have no kavana at all, just reading it makes the job, by reading the new series of tehilim he revealed:

31, 35, 36, 60, 68, 80, 83, 88, 89, 109

And by reading his prayers.”

You can get the books of Rav Berland’s prayers translated into English on the Shuvu Banim website HERE.

====

And then, I also get sent this:

“The Ministry of Justice just yesterday cancelled the plea bargain of the Rav due to media pressure. Maybe that’s why all this is happening. 

In an unheard of thing that lawyers from both sides agree to a plea bargain but the Justice Ministry itself gets involved saying outright that its because of media pressure. 

Anyways, we need to always remember like your husband said, its so much better than the end-of-days are meant to be and we should be grateful. As painful as it is, we have a tzaddik who willingly takes it all on himself so we should have it relatively “easy” and at least survive. 

====
Unbelievable.
The media is literally an instrument of the Soton.

But hopefully not for much longer.

Lockdown #3 comes to Israel.

But this time, things are going to be different.

====

This morning, me and my husband decided to drive a 4×4 trail in the forests near Jerusalem, before the country officially enters ‘Lockdown #3’, in about 20 minutes time.

We got up early, bought some sandwiches from the bakery, and headed out on a great trail, replete with ruined fortresses from the time of Israeli King Alexander Janus, and even Roman-period ‘milestones’, measuring the distance between the Roman monastery at Emmaus (now Latrun) and the holy city of Jerusalem.

When we got back, we ran around trying to fit in our ‘last’ visit to the great fruit guy at Mahane Yehuda, which is slated to be closed down again.

And then, we ran around Talpiot trying to buy enough leg wax to last a household of 3 women for a month; and then finished up by getting a few more edible plants for the garden, just in case, including some parsley and dill.

====

You see, in some ways, we are all now ‘lockdown pros’ in Israel, and of course in the rest of the world, too.

Most of my family is currently trapped in a severe ‘Tier 4’ lockdown in and around London.

And lockdowns have been planned over xmas and New Year for months, and months, and months all over the planet, to coincide with the wonderful mRNA experimental ‘vaccines’ that have not even been tested on a mouse.

Why waste cute little animals, when there are billions of ‘surplus to requirements’ human beings willingly queuing up to be experimented on?

Performing serious medical experiments directly on human guinea pigs is just so much more efficient, don’t you think?

(Hey, wait a minute… Haven’t we heard something like that, somewhere before?)

Spitz was a 22-year-old court reporter during the doctors’ trials at Nuremberg following World War II. In Doctors from hell: the horrific account of Nazi experiments on humans, she recounts in vivid, objective detail the horrific human experiments conducted by 20 so-called physicians and medical assistants in Germany under the direction of the Nazis.

But I digress.

Let’s get back to the lockdown.

====

Our totally corrupt government, and the totally corrupt leaders of the medical establishment, are telling us that this is going to be a lockdown for 2 weeks….

But of course, we all know they are lying.

We all know that we are part of another ‘boiling the frog’ scenario, where 2 weeks will morph into 4, and then 6 and then 8… whatever they think they can get away with, to totally trash the economy and force as many people as possible to lose hope of any ‘life as normal’ unless they agree to be vaccinated.

Whether you want to get vaccinated or not, that’s between you and God.

I’m not here, at this point, to try to argue with you, or to change your mind. I keep putting some interesting information out there, like this, below, from the Corbett Report, and then you make up your own minds:

====

(Not shmirat eynayim friendly, so if you prefer to read the transcript or listen to the audio, go HERE instead.)

====

But my feeling is that Ahuvya Sandek’s death is a turning point, at least here in Israel.

More and more of us are shocked to the core to see people who are meant to be protecting us – i.e., the Israeli police and the Border Police – acting mamash like the violent anti-semites of once upon a pogrom.

In the last post, I posted up another video that’s surfaced of them violently attacking a young teenage boy who committed the ‘crime’ of protesting against murderous police violence in Jerusalem, last Thursday night.

In fact, let me post it up here too, in case you missed it:

====

====

Here is what you’ll see, if you click ‘play’:

A fully-grown, adult ‘policeman’, in protective riot gear and crash helmet, brutally trying to beat a defenseless kid, who can’t be more than 15 years old, to a pulp.

Baruch Hashem, twenty people rushed over to try to stop him.

My daughter was also at that demonstration.

She told me afterwards that she heard one of these ‘policemen’ say to the other that they shouldn’t beat the kids up there, where so many people were filming, but should take them somewhere else out of the spotlight, if they really wanted to teach them a lesson.

====

So, I have to ask this painful question:

Who decided that people who are obviously violent psychopaths should be drawing a salary paid for by you and me, and should be enjoying the full protection of the State of Israel?

How is it, that my tax shekel is paying for these people to beat up, ram into, torture and even murder young Jewish teens in the State of Israel?

How is it, that when they are caught in the act of murdering young Jewish teens – or caught in the act of violently beating young people up on camera, in the middle of Jerusalem – or caught in the act of falsifying ‘evidence’, or caught in the act of torturing Jewish minors in the West Bank – that absolutely nothing is done about these offences, which are simply ignored and then whitewashed out of the picture?

How can that be?

====

And if we’re still telling ourselves that the State of Israel is only good, and only just, and that our security forces and army are the ‘most moral in the world’ (puke…) – then how do we square that with the video above?

And with Ahuvya’s murder?

And with the torture accorded to the minor suspect in the Duma affair, that was approved by both the Attorney General and the Prime Minister?

====

These are not simple questions.

History is full of men and women who aligned themselves with evil regimes because they wanted to keep their jobs, and their status, and their perks, and to be able to keep paying their mortgages.

After the fact, all these people tried to say they were ‘just following orders’, and to use that as their defense for supporting and perpetrating the worst evil.

It didn’t work then.

And it’s not going to work now.

====

So, that’s why this lockdown is going to be different.

We have reached a tipping point in the State of Israel where the middle ground has effectively dissolved, and where good and evil are starting to stand in stark contrast with each other.

Either, you are behind the young Jewish boys and girls idealistically protesting the murder of another innocent Jewish boy, or you are behind the violent psychopaths in riot gear who think it’s a ‘mitzvah’ to violently beat up Jewish children in public.

Either, you are behind the health professionals who have risked their reputations, careers and often also their lives to blow the whistle on what’s really going with vaccines and the big pharma agenda – or, you are behind the people who think it’s a ‘mitzvah’ to conduct mass medical experiments on human beings that could leave them crippled, ill, infertile or even dead, without even informing them of what’s really going on.

Either, you are behind the rabbis who have totally sacrificed themselves to atone for the sins of the nation, and to bring the geula the sweet way – or, you are behind the ‘sons of Haman who are learning Torah in Bnei Brak’ who sold themselves out, spiritually and morally, a long, long time ago.

But from here on in, you can’t have it both ways.

====

Whatever comes next, this lockdown is not going to end like the others.

Too many genies have been let out of their bottles, too many massive changes have been set in motion.

But let me ask all those policemen and women, and doctors and nurses, and rabbis and bureaucrats and lying journalists who are propping up the State of Israel just one question:

If it turns out that you end up on the wrong side of history, how are you going to live with yourself?

How are you going to sleep at night?

How are you going to be able to look your children in the face, when they ask you what you were doing, when the experimental COVID-1984 ‘vaccine’ was unleashed on the world?

And if you don’t like the answers to these questions, understand that it’s still not too late.

You can still stop now, quit your job, stop ‘just following orders’, and find yourself back on the right side of history.

But probably not for much longer.

====

UPDATE:

So, I went looking for more videos from Thursday’s demo in Jerusalem of Israeli police beating up defenseless teenagers, and whaddya know?

I came across lots of lots of videos of Israeli Border Police doing exactly the same thing to Palestinian teenagers, like this one:

https://www.bbc.com/news/av/world-middle-east-28181404

Clearly, that’s leading the discussion to a very uncomfortable place for most of us, isn’t it?

So let’s vere away, at least for now, and take a look at some other headlines that make the same point, in a way less likely to invoke cognitive dissonance, like this, from last year, when a policeman shot dead an unarmed Ethiopian teenager:

https://www.vox.com/2019/7/2/20679896/israel-protest-ethiopia-killing-teenager

And this, from earlier this year, when the Israeli police severely beat up an unarmed chareidi teenager:

====

This problem isn’t going to go away anytime soon.

The Israeli police is full of violent psychopaths.

And we need to stop making excuses for them, and to stop putting our heads in the sand and to stop pretending that only ‘anti semites’ are claiming this, or that only ‘non-Jews’ are acting like this, because it’s simply not true.

If COVID did one good thing, it’s that if finally got the Israeli public to stop automatically respecting a uniform.

But what happens next, to really defuse all this evil, and to start really cleaning it up, is anyone’s guess.

====

You might also like this article:

Once we move away from ‘tribal thinking’, it becomes way easier to identify what – and who – is really ‘bad’.

For years, I’ve been having a running battle with one of my kids, who went through the brain-washing mill that is mamlachti-dati education in the State of Israel.

You can sum it up like this:

  • The State of Israel is only good.
  • Jews never do anything bad – and especially not Israeli Jews in uniform.
  • David Ben Gurion was a saint.
  • Halacha can always be ‘bent’ to suit the purposes and aims of the secular State of Israel.

Poor girl, she was a good student.

So, when I started finding out all this horrible stuff about just how corrupt the State of Israel really is – including it’s judiciary, police, and yes, let’s put it out there, also its army – well.

We started to get into some very big arguments.

====

Those arguments have continued down the years, and have often been pretty painful for both of us.

Especially when it came to me defending and even openly following Rabbi Eliezer Berland.

Because this daughter’s uber-dati-leumi friends would come home, see the picture of the Rav on the wall, and then immediately start tearing into me about what he’d really done.

All based on the falsified ‘news’ and corrupt websites that have been pounding us into the ground with ‘COVID-19’ for the last 10 months.

====

A couple of weeks ago, one of those friends who was so very ‘anti’ Rav Berland came round to visit, with her big blue mask pulled way, way up over her nose.

The mask stayed on.

When a few more people showed up for supper, she pulled out a super-duper N95 mask, and put that one on instead.

I have a good relationship with this girl, so at that point I pulled her to one side and asked her why she was so anxious about COVID.

She told me her father is a doctor. Her father (who should know better…) has made her promise to wear a mask all the time. This kid is petrified of ‘infecting’ her father with COVID, if she doesn’t wear a mask 24/7.

In the meantime, this poor kid’s stress levels are totally through the roof, and I can see that her state of mind is very fragile right now, so I trod very carefully when we were talking. 

But it showed me so clearly, the huge price of believing the media, and choking down our own ability to think and clarify things for ourselves.

And of course, she’ll be one of the first in line to get the vaccine…. lo alenu.

====

So, as COVID 19 has played out, my daughter has come to see more and more the difference between people who blindly lap up all the lies and misinformation being putting out by the media, and the State of Israel’s other propaganda arms including doctors, teachers and sadly even rabbis – and those that don’t.

Slowly, slowly, she’s been coming around to the idea that her parents are not as totally crazy and mentally-ill as she thought, and maybe even occasionally be right about some things. (!)

That process has been happening anyway.

But this week, after the murder of Ahuvya Sandek, it roared ahead a million miles an hour.

====

My daughter is not a ‘hill top youth’, but most of her friends are.

And the lying media has totally misrepresented most of those young people.

Yes, there are problems with substance abuse – show me any teenage cohort (or even adult cohort) where that isn’t the case, in our day and age.

Yes, they are often free spirits who chafe at authority (especially the kind of corrupt ‘authority’ that they’ve come up against wearing the State of Israel’s badge).

And yes, some of the kids have emotional issues, and anger problems – just like every other segment of society.

But what you are never told about the ‘hilltop youth’ is how idealistic, and good, and spiritual so many of them are.

They aren’t perfect.

But so many of them are really, really good, thoughtful, kind, considerate and even gentle people, who really want the world to be a better place, and are trying to find a way of making that happen.

====

So, when Ahuvya was murdered by undercover Israeli police who deliberately rammed the car he was travelling in off the road, then left him trapped under it for 40 minutes, [allegedly…(whatever)] preventing Zaka and other medical personnel from approaching the scene of the crime, which potentially could have saved Ahuvya’s life – that hit very close to home.

Yesterday, she went to protest the terrible cover-up that is currently in full-swing outside the ‘undercover police’ headquarters in Jerusalem.

These ‘undercover police’ operate like the Shabak, and are backed by a massive budget.

Except instead of spying on terrorists, and apprehending terrorists, and torturing terrorists in underground basements in the West Bank, and murdering terrrorists – they concentrate all of their mighty efforts on the Hill Top Youth.

Do I believe the stories told about the Duma murders?

No. Not at all.

In fact, I’m increasingly coming to the conclusion that most of ‘terror’ in Israel – on both sides of the fence – has actually been orchestrated and planned by the State itself.

Because when they ratchet up the Jewish population’s fear of ‘Arab terrorists’, that gives the police and security services (and politicians like Netanyahu…) a ‘get out of jail free’ card, to do anything they want, with no outside oversight or restraint.

The people who control the State (and the rest of the world) are playing both ends of this ‘terror’ game in Israel, and they probably always have been.

====

Let’s get back to the protest yesterday.

My daughter went with some friends, and a few hundred young people joined her.

You can read an ‘official account’ of the evening, under the headline below, HERE:

Youths protest in Jerusalem, block Light Rail

Hundreds of young people demonstrate over death of Ahuvya Sandak. Police forces evacuate youths who blocked Light Rail.

====

This story appears on the Arutz 7 website, which at least covered the murder of Ahuvya, and still occasionally has some real news (before it’s quickly removed and replaced by more propaganda).

But even this story isn’t telling you what really happened yesterday.

What really happened yesterday is that the police waded into this crowd of young people, and started punching them in the face – including many teenage girls, and including even a 10 year old boy.

My daughter apparently has videos to show me, and when she wakes up I’ll see if I can figure out how to put them up on the blog.

Because the ‘official’ media just aren’t doing their job, of informing the public about what’s really going on here.

====

Since when did it become ‘OK’ for strapping policemen to violently punch teenage girls in the face?

When and how did we get so numb to how blatantly psychopathic and evil our police and ‘security services’ have become?

I am someone who spent many, many years beating the hasbara drum for the State of Israel, convinced that so many of the terrible stories being told by the Arabs were exaggerated and made up, and ‘anti-semitic’.

At this point in time, when I see the horrible violence these police and ‘Shabaknikim’ are perpetrating on young Jewish teenagers, I’m getting that sick feeling in my stomach that maybe, just maybe, the Arabs were telling the truth after all.

That’s a horrible thought.

But maybe, it’s true.

====

Hard as all this is, I am starting to see a light shining at the end of the tunnel.

Yesterday, that crowd of dati leumi teenagers were joined by some young people from the chareidi world, who also came out to demonstrate about the murder of Ahuvya.

My daughter told me:

Ima, it was so good that we had achdut (unity) with the chareidim. But I felt sad that we didn’t have achdut with our other brothers, in the police.

For years, our corrupt leaders have been keeping us opposing each other, fighting over nonsense, and fighting over ‘politics’, and fighting over fine points of halacha, and whose beard is biggest, while the real evil continues to run riot and to control all of us, from above.

But those false divisions are starting to crumble.

The re-unification of the ‘good’ in the Jewish world against the ‘bad’ is starting to happen at the grassroots level.

And the hilltop youth are leading the way.

====

UPDATE:

Just to keep this as factual as possible, from what I could see in the videos the police were only punching the boys in the face – and they actually knocked someone out cold. (Hopefully pictures to come.)

So, I couldn’t see them punching girls in the face (in my daughter’s videos), just shoving them violently and screaming like psychos.

TBC

====

UPDATE #2:

I can’t figure out how to get the videos from my daughter’s phone into a format that’s usable on my blog, as none of us have social media.

But lucky for me, other people started to upload their videos of young teenagers been brutally beaten by Israeli police at the protest that occurred 3 days ago, ironically protesting the brutal police violence against young religious teens that led to the murder of Ahuvya.

You can see it below:

You might also like this article:

Yesterday, the Israeli police killed a 16 year old Jewish boy from Bat Ayin.

The official story is that the boy and his friends were ‘throwing stones’ at Arab cars, and then tried to escape from the scene at high speed, where the car they were travelling in overturned, injuring some occupants, and killing Ahuvya Sandak, the 16 year old from Bat Ayin:

====

It hurts the heart to see his picture.

And I don’t believe the ‘official story’.

Why?

Because for hours and hours before the story was finally released to the media, Zaka and other medical professionals weren’t allowed access to his body.

And for hours and hours before the ‘official story’ appeared in the press, my daughters were telling me rumors of how the Israeli Police had deliberately run a vehicle off the road, killing a boy, somewhere in the hills of Shomron – and were now desperately trying to cover up what they’d done.

====

Because no medical personnel, or Zaka, were allowed access to the scene of the death, my daughters told me that Zaka themselves started circulating pictures to the boy’s family, so they could start raising some hell on social media, to try and derail the police cover-up.

I couldn’t believe my ears when I heard this.

But of course on some level, I could.

====

The Israeli Police – and the rest of the ‘security’ apparatus in Israel –  lost my trust a long, long time ago.

All this stuff with Covid-1984 has just deepened what was already a big problem.

We knew they were faking cases against ‘hilltop youth’ to advance their own agendas of ‘divide and conquer’.

We knew they were faking cases against Rabbi Berland, and not a few other rabbis who conveniently died of weird illnesses after being taken into custody on charges that then disappeared in a puff of pixie dust.

But to stoop to this?

To premediated murder of a teenage boy?

The mind boggles.

====

UPDATE:

You can see a picture from the scene HERE, that clearly shows damage to the front of the ‘undercover’ police vehicle that rammed into the back of Ahuvya’s vehicle, flipping it off the road, and killing him. I’m screenshotting it here, too, as the ‘official story’ being told on sites like Ynet is already distorting the facts, as part of the police cover up.

====

And here is the bald-faced lie on the YNET page, part of the police cover up:

“Other passengers claimed that the undercover vehicle in which police were traveling, hit them in the back. Photos from the scene showed the vehicle Sandak was in, had been damaged in the front.”

YNET of course doesn’t share any of those pictures, because if they did, you and me would know they are lying through their teeth and deliberately distorting the truth.

====

UPDATE 2:

Rav Berland is calling for 50,000 more Tikkun Haklalis to be said by this coming Friday. Here’s the message I was just sent in Hebrew, I will try to translate it ASAP:

ב” ברה”ק בה”ב *שימו לב כל אנש הודעה חדשה וחשובה מאד מהצדיק!!!* הרב התקשר לאחד מאנ”ש ואמר לו בזו הלשון: *”תגיד לכולם שחסרים לי עוד 50 אלף תיקוני הכללי”* ‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️ 50,000 תיקונים!! להתעורר אנש היקרים להרביץ תיקונים כלליים באש להבה בע” יתברך כולנו ביחד נביא להרב 50 אלף תיקוני הכללי עד עשרה בטבת (יום שישי הקרוב) שהוא יום הדין על בית המקדש והגאולה (חתם סופר). ידוע שרבינו אומר *”המשיח יבוא ע”י אנשים פשוטים שאומרים תהילים והם ישימו הכתר בראשו!”* 👑 להתאבד על זה בכל הכוח *אין עולם יש רק תיקון הכללי* ונזכה כהרף עין לגאולה ברחמים אמן ואמן !!

====

ENGLISH TRANSLATION:

Pay attention, all of AN’SH (Breslov), there’s a new, very important message from the tzaddik (Rav Berland):

The Rav contacted someone from AN’SH and told him in these words:

“Tell everyone that I am missing another 50,000 Tikkun HaKlalis.”

50,000 tikkunim!!!!!!

Wake up, dear AN’SH, beat out some Tikkun Haklalis with fiery enthusiasm for Hashem Yitbarach.

All of us together, we can bring the Rav another 50,000 Tikkun Haklalis before the 10th of Tevet (this coming Friday), which is a day of judgement for the Beit HaMikdash and the geula (According to the Chatam Sofer).

It’s known that Rabbenu (Rebbe Nachman) says that the Moshiach will come thanks to the simple people who recite tehillim, and that they will put the crown on his head.

Make an effort to do this with all your koach (strength). There is no ‘this world’. There is only the Tikkun Haklali.

And we should merit to have the geula the sweet way, in the blink of an eye, amen and amen.

====

Even if you only manage one a day, it all still adds up.

Please do whatever you can, clearly the fight between good and bad is mamash heating up again.

====

Just now, someone who gets the Whatsapp messages from Shuvu Banim sent me this over email, which I’m reproducing below:

1) A Jewish mother of 6 in Shomron was brutally murdered by a Palestinian terrorist while running in the park

2) A 19 yr old Jewish boy was murdered by Israeli police when a police vehicle purposely knocked the car off the road while driving at high speed

3) A Palestinian opened fire with an automatic weapon at the entrance to the old city in Jerusalem. B’h no one got hurt in this attack. Bottom line is that we should say this tfilla daily or several times a day.

Three terror attacks in one day. The situation is starting to heat up. This tfilla that the Rav wrote is very powerful. And tfilla should be said regularly to prevent further escalation The Rav wrote it about twenty years ago.

====

Here it is in Hebrew, and then English translation below.

Tatty, it’s enough already!

Please rescue us from all this madness, Hashem, and all these evil, yucky people who are continuing to rule over us, and to tread us (and the rest of mankind…) into the mud.

It’s enough Tatty!

====

Rav Berland prayer

====

English Translation:

Master of the world all powerful who can do anything.

Merit me from now on to feel the terrible suffering of the Jewish people and the Jewish blood that is spilled in the cities street day and night until there is no house which does not have dead.

Therefore, I come before you Master of kindness and mercy, please have mercy and compassion on the flock that is being led to slaughter because before You, all the secrets are revealed and all of the concealed things from the beginning of creation.

And I only yearn and desire and plead to You that You Yourself should fix everything that I messed up.

I hereby return in teshuva and I yearn only for You like it says like a deer yearns by the water so too my soul yearns for You G.od.

And I know faithfully that I am at fault for all of the terror attacks, all of the catastrophes, all of the terrible murdering.

This is only and solely because of my defilement of the brit that caused all of this terrible catastrophes to happen.

Therefore, I came to plead before You, Master of compassion, that Your greatness has no comprehension, to merit me to completely fix my pegamei haBrit and may I merit from now on to guard my eyes and not to cause any defilement at all in the holy covenant, G.od forbid.

And through this may the verse be fulfilled that the sparks of holiness which the other side has swallowed up will now be vomited out and all of the holy sparks will return to the rightful place.

And through this, the holy and awesome soul of Rabeinu our Master will be drawn down once again and the complete redemption will come very very soon, in the blink of an eye.

Amen netzach selah vaed

====

May Hashem avenge his blood, and give his family comfort among the mourners of Zion.

====

UPDATE 3:

Ahuvya’s family have filed a complaint against the police officers involved, asking they be prosecuted for murder.

https://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/293565

Here’s a little of what their attorney, Menashe Yado of Honenu, wrote:

“The information in our possession now and no doubt is also in the possession of the investigating authorities clearly shows as follows: The police vehicle hit the back of the vehicle in which the boys were traveling. The assault was carried out at high speed. The rear-ending pushed the vehicle in which the boys were travelling tens of meters. As a result of the collision, Ahuvya was killed.”

“These circumstances establish a strong indifference on the part of the police officer to the most probable result of death. As painful as it is to suspect a police officer of murder, this is the conclusion that emerges clearly from the evidence and there is no escape from an investigation into this charge.” 

====

Sadly, the chances of them obtaining justice from the State of Israel is hovering around 0%….

We know that, from everything that’s gone on with Rav Berland, and others.

Only when the Rav finally gets out of prison is this evil klipa finally going to self-destruct. 

May it be very soon.

====

You might also like this article:

In the process of updating the last post, I started researching ‘The Elijah Institute’.

I’m leaving those updates in their original place, too, for context, but the more I’m looking at it, the more important information I’m finding. So, I decided to also make those updates into their own post, and to ‘update’ that, here.

Here’s where we got to, so far:

====

Putin has his very own Chabad rabbi, too, called affectionately Berel Lazar.

Putin really likes R’ Berel. This from Wikipedia:

In 2004, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed an edict to honor him with the Order of Friendship. This award was presented for the contribution made by Rabbi Lazar to developing culture and strengthening friendship between nations within Russia.

In December 2004, he was honored with a national public award, the ‘Minin and Pozharsky’ Order “for his great personal contribution to strengthening the moral and cultural fabric of the Russian State and for reviving spiritual life and religious freedom in the country”.

In June 2005, he was awarded the Medal “60 Years of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War 1941-1945”. He received the medal during the 19th session of the Russian ‘Pobeda’ (Victory) Organizational Committee.

In September 2005, he received the ‘Peter the Great’ First Class Order. The diploma attached to the Order explains that the Chief Rabbi was honored with this award “considering his activities in advancing inter-ethnic and inter-religious relations, and his great contribution to the spiritual rebirth of Russia’s Jewish community and to strengthening Russian state”

It should also be noted that:

Rabbi Lazar is an advocate of interfaith dialogue and sits on the Board of World Religious Leaders for The Elijah Interfaith Institute.

====

UPDATE:

First, just to make it clear:

There are loads and loads of tremendously good people who are part of the Chabad movement.

I’m writing here about the institution, and it’s corrupt leaders, not about the many good Jews who mamash have poured their heart and soul into trying to serve Hashem, and the Jewish people the best way they can.

I’ve come to see this kind of like the IDF, or the State of Israel.

The institutions and the leadership and the ideology are corrupt.

Most of the people within it, tho, like the seeds in a pomegranate, are good and holy.

And also, being kept in the dark about what’s really going on.

====

That said, there are SO MANY things that we can’t just keep closing our eyes too.

Remember this?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HyI3pYQqdNQ&feature=emb_logo

====

R’ Berel Lazar, Putin’s personal ‘rabbi’ is part of the Elijah Interfaith Institute, as referenced above.

He’s such a big part of all this ‘interfaith’ stuff, he’s even get medals and honors from Putin to reward him for his work in this area.

Here’s a little of what Wiki has to say about it:

Elijah Interfaith Institute is a nonprofit, international, UNESCO-sponsored interfaith organization which was founded by Rabbi Alon Goshen-Gottstein in 1997.

The mission of the Elijah Interfaith Institute, encapsulated in its slogan “Sharing Wisdom, Fostering Peace,” is to foster unity in diversity, creating a harmonious world. Through its various activities, Elijah deepens understanding among religious leaders and scholars, and through them, spreads its vision to their various communities….

Headquartered in Jerusalem, Elijah has offices and representatives in different countries, and holds its activities in multiple international settings.

====

Even more concerning is what you find on that organisation’s own website, HERE:

The Elijah Board of World Religious Leaders is unique in mission and scope. It brings together an unparalleled group of religious leaders from all over the world in a profound exchange of ideas that leads to deep engagement with each and spiritual friendship between participants.

This paves the way for transformation within religions and their teachings.

====

Emphasis mine.

Given that Frankism was all about ‘transforming’ the Jewish religion from within, God forbid, and melding Judaism with the other religions to create a ‘one world religion’ loosely based on Catholicism, the ‘accepted’ religion that Frank felt was most akin to, and useful, as a cloak for his own warped antinomianism, this statement rings an alarming bell for me.

What is the Chabad chief rabbi of Russia, Putin’s right-hand man, doing in such a organisation?

Why ARE Chabad rabbis at home in the Vatican, and dancing for the Pope?

How is all this connected?

I’m happy to post up alternate views, as you can see from the liberal policy I have in the comments’ section, but one way or another, the truth has to come out.

====

UPDATE 2:

The founder of The Elijah Institute, Alon Goshen-Gottstein (who is also deeply connected to the State of Israel, and its corrupt institutions), wrote a book called The Jewish Encounter with Hinduism.

Here’s a little of what he says (on page 47):

[H]istory, ideological perspective, and halachic normativity come together in complex ways.

Their permutations allow us to suggest a hard core of what would constitute Judaism and what is the theological platform from which it can be described.

But this hard core is matched by some soft periphery. Should Sabbateanism and Frankism be described as Judaism? And what of early Israelite religion? And what of the Karaites and Samaritans, etc. etc.?

Probably the most challenging issues arise when we explore Christianity, primarily early Christianity, in those terms. The case of early Christianity actually introduces one further criterion into our discussion, that of self-understanding.

In addition to the “objective” criteria of history and halacha and the more ambiguous criterion of religious ideology, we have the purely subjective criterion of self-understanding. Self-understanding constitutes identity, and it plays an important role in the definition of religions, religious communities, and their boundaries.

Contemporary Judaism presents some unresolved challenges revolving around the application of these complicated and, at times, conflicting criteria.

The continuing struggles around the issue of “who is a Jew,” as it applies to the Law of Return in Israel, indicate that definition of a religion and of religious identity are never fully resolved and remain open to continuing debate.

====

Again, make up your own minds about what he’s really hinting at here, but the more you read about Frankist doctrine, the more the alarm bells go off.

====

UPDATE 3:

So, this was what is posted up on the Elijah Institute website HERE, for their last meeting in Jerusalem (note the title):

From Religious to Political Leadership – Monthly Learning and Prayer MeetingElijah Interfaith Institute, in cooperation with Praying Together in Jerusalem, invites you to an interfaith prayer and learning gathering on Thursday November 5 at 6 pm Israel time (11 am EDT).

 

 

 

====

Doesn’t this sound ‘reform’ to you?

Also, take a look at where the Board members of Elijah have been meeting – including in the Archabbey of St. Ottilien – and what they are up to (bolded emphasis mine):

[O]ne moving example, shared by an Israeli rabbi.

This rabbi, who is a prominent voice in Israeli public discourse, is involved in interfaith relations only through Elijah (this is the only forum where he felt there is a depth of discourse that is worthy of his investing his time).

One day he took lunch with the most prominent Hindu representative at the meeting. In the course of lunch, as he later told me, he decided to shift his orientation from that of a colleague sharing opinions to a disciple who seeks the wisdom of the master.

Accordingly, the conversation proceeded with him turning to the Hindu master, requesting his advice on key issues that he experiences as part of his own leadership work.

One of the questions he posed concerned how to bless people who come to him. People frequently ask him for blessings, and he is at a loss how to fulfil their request and what that means in terms of his relationship with them and in terms of his own self-image. The Hindu master responded: When people ask for blessings, I simply pray together with them.

The rabbi found this answer most illuminating and has shared with me how it has helped him in the exercise of his own rabbinical duties. 

====

You got that?

A leading Israeli Rabbi – who I’d just LOVE to know the identity of – is hanging out in Abbeys in Germany, getting advice on religious observance from a Hindu master.

Woe to us.

====

Maybe we can get a clue as to who that rabbi might be from looking at this, from the Elijah Institute’s ‘coronavirus’ page:

====

Apart from the reform / Masorti rabbis, and good ol’ Reb Lazar, we have the following rabbis from Israel:

Rabbi Dov Singer is a noted educator in the religious-Zionist sector in Israel. He heads Yeshivat Mekor Chayim and is a founder of a movement of prayer groups that seek to deepen the experience of prayer.

Rabbi Ephraim Kenig is head of the Hassidic community of Breslav in Safed.

Rabbi Yuval Cherlow is head of the hesder Yeshiva Orot Shaul, head of the Religious and Ethics Center in Jerusalem and a prominent voice in the religious Zionist stream of Judaism.

====

Yuval Cherlow is head of the alt-‘frum’ Tzohar organisation, and popped up across Jewish media last week, to urge ‘limited sanctions‘ on all COVID-1984 vaccine refusers.

And yes, I’m as disappointed and surprised as you are, to see Rabbi Ephraim Kenig on this list, too.

====

But that’s not even the worst of it.

Read on. This comes from that same page:

“Elijah is currently engaged in creating a first of its kind interfaith center, to be based in Jerusalem, to be called the Center of HOPE, acronym for House of Prayer and Education.”

Here’s the plans and the ‘vision‘ for this interfaith centre in Jerusalem:

The new facility will include lecture halls for public lectures and conferences; an auditorium for public events and interreligious concerts; an exhibition hall where interreligious art exhibits can be hosted; meeting spaces for scholars’ seminars, interreligious think tanks, and for all interreligious activity that takes place in and around the cause of Jerusalem and the Holy Land; a museological display featuring the life of prayer in world religions; and inspiring prayer spaces where Jews, Christians, Muslims, and others will pray alongside one another.

====

Uck, uck and double uck.

And then, we learn the Elijah project is teaming up with the John Templeton Foundation, on a project to explore how ‘other religions’ saints’, or ‘religious geniuses’ could be inspiring to people in different traditions.

John Templeton is another very interesting character. Maybe we’ll come back to him another time, as I just tripped down yet another rabbit hole with all this. Take a look at the funding areas the John Templeton Foundation is involved in, and tell me if something doesn’t strike you as a little strange:

  • Science and the big questions
  • Individual freedom and free markets
  • Genetics
  • Voluntary family planning
  • Exceptional cognitive talent and genius
  • Character virtue development

The last time I came across such a strange list of funding interests, it was on the Rothschild‘s website.

Lots more stuff to think about here…. We’ll see where this next clue leads.

====

That’s all the stuff copied over from the last post.

Now, I went back and looked at the ‘fluffy video’ all these organisations like to put out, about all the good work they are doing in the world. (It’s got women in it, so not shnirat eynayim friendly, but here’s the link if that’s not an issue:)

====

The guy with the beard is ‘Rabbi’ Yuval Cherlow, as mentioned above, who believes in people asking questions and thinking for themselves – except when it comes to taking experimental, DNA-changing coronavirus ‘vaccines’.

Then, he believes that people should be coerced and punished for not obeying governmental diktats.

He’s also a big believer in people risking their lives and health by offering to become ‘human guinea pigs’.

Here’s a link to his blog on the Times of Israel (funded by billionaire Seth Klarman, who has joined with the Rothschilds, to fund Israel’s ‘Precision Medicine Partnership‘, where your DNA is harvested and used to create all sorts of things that give me nightmares.)

This is how ‘R’Cherlow’s ‘featured’ blog post begins:

Rabbi, is it OK for me be part of a human vaccine trial?

As long as you know the scientific protocols protecting trial participants are in place, the question is how could you not participate?!
====

How could you not?!

And even if you don’t want to, you will be forced and sanctioned into becoming a human guinea pig, in any case, regardless of the total lack of information being given to anyone about what’s really in this  experimental mRNA-changing ‘vaccine’, and what it’s really doing.

But let’s move on, because that’s not actually what’s so interesting, here.

Here’s a screenshot from the Elijah Foundation’s ‘puff video’, which shows some of their funders and backers:
====
Here’s who is funding it:
  • The John Templeton Foundation (briefly mentioned above)
  • Rockefeller Brothers Fund
  • UDO Keller Stiftung Forum Humanum
  • Fetzer Institute
  • UNESCO
  • Henry Luce Foundation
  • Guerrand-Hermes Foundation for Peace
  • Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching
That’s an interesting list, hey!
Lots and lots of overlap with all the eugenics stuff, and population control stuff, and ‘new world order’ stuff we’ve been covering here, in connection with COVID-1984.

Let’s see what else we can learn about why these organisations are throwing so much cash at The Elijah Foundation.

====

The Udo Keller Stiftung Forum Humanum was set up by a wealthy German business man named Udo Keller, who passed away in 2012.

I can find very little personal information about him online, but here’s the philosophy guiding his foundation (which is also REALLY interested in funding projects relating to the intersection of AI and humanity, aka ‘transhumanism’):

Inspired above all by the Far Eastern world religions and the mystical traditions of the West, [Keller] came to his very personal answer on the way of a long private study: To the insight that the messages of the great world religions are essentially identical apart from rite and dogma.

Just so you know, that last sentence encapsulates a key part of Frankist / Shabbatean doctrine, that taught that ‘organised religion’ – including the Torah! – was just a ‘garment’ for spirituality that could be discarded.

(This is a distortion of authentic Jewish teachings about what happens AFTER Moshiach comes.)

====

Moving on, let’s take a look at the Fetzer Institute.

You can read their creepy ‘Theory of Change’ document HERE.

Yet again, we have that strange admixture of cutting-edge science and new age ‘spirituality’ that is all about ‘transformation’ and ‘love’ – and creating ‘New Narratives’ that totally dismantle old-fashioned religion, with a lot of help from AI and other things.

If you read the will of the open Frankist (and great-uncle of Justice Louis Dembitz Brandeis…) Gottlieb Wehle, then all of this will sound strangely familiar.

BH, if I have time I will try to transcribe parts of it, so it also gets easier for you to recognise that we are dealing with neo-Frankism here.

And so many of the Elijah Institutes backers have the same sort of weird science /xtianity / new-age spirituality / perhaps Jewish feel to them, I’m beginning to think we’ve stumbled on a number of ‘Frankist descendants’ in real time.

But let’s continue.

====

Do we really need to write more about the Rockefellers Foundation?

Start with this:

https://www.rivkalevy.com/todays-eugenicists-aka-meet-bill-gates/

And then take a look at their website, which states this bizarre message front and centre on the home page:

It was a remarkable year at the RBF that brought to fruition long-term projects, initiatives, and plans that will lay the foundation for our continued efforts and evolution over the next decade and into a new era that has already begun.

====

remarkable year?!

That brought to fruition long-term projects, initiatives and plans?!

Honestly, they aren’t even trying to hide what they are up to, any more.

====

Moving on.

The Henry Luce Foundation is also an interesting addition.

Luce was the son of Presbyterian missionaries in China, and founded Time, Inc (amongst other things.)

He was also an instrumental voice in urging the USA to adopt a ‘global empire’ attitude, as described on Wikipedia:

According to David Harvey, Luce believed “the power conferred [on the USA] was global and universal rather than territorially specific, so Luce preferred to talk of an American century rather than an empire”.

In the same article he called upon United States “to exert upon the world the full impact of our influence, for such purposes as we see fit and by such means as we see fit“.

And that brings us back to the ‘Economic Hit Man’ model of US domination of the third world and all its natural resources, which we talked about HERE.

====

====

Well, the Guerrand-Hermes Foundation for Peace is just about as new age ‘peace n’love’ as it gets.

You can read their ‘Charter for Peace and Forgiveness’ HERE. This is a snippet:

12. We seek cooperation with all interested and like-minded people, organisations, public institutions and the UN System, bearing in mind the interdependence and unity of humanity.

13. We affirm the equal rights and responsibilities of all women and men, as expressed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the proposed Universal Declaration of Human Responsibilities.

They presented this ‘charter’ to the Pope back in 2018:

The charter scroll was presented to His Holiness Pope Francis by Bhai Sahib Mohinder Singh in Rome on 2nd May 2018.

Isn’t it interesting, how the Pope is also in the middle of all this ‘interfaith’ new-age dialogue designed to totally uproot the religion he is purportedly the head of?

====

Lastly, we have the Carnegie Foundation.

Again, they have a long and proud tradition of supporting eugenics, and using ‘ground-breaking science’ and medicine to get rid of anyone they classify as ‘defective’.

Read more HERE, but this is a taster:

As investigative reporter Edwin Black documents in War Against the Weak, eugenics would not “have risen above ignorant rants without the backing of corporate philanthropic largess.”

Mr. Black’s exhaustive and authoritative research turned up mountains of evidence confirming the links between the eugenics movement and our first major philanthropies, including the Carnegie Institution of Washington, the Carnegie Corporation, and the Rockefeller Foundation.

====

Let’s stop there, for now.

There’s a lot to think about.

And a lot more to research.

But something about ‘The Elijah Foundation’ stinks to high heaven.

And I’m willing to bet, it’s connected to all the stuff we’ve been talking about here on the blog, including hidden Frankists in the Jewish community, the Vilna Gaon, eugenics and COVID-1984.

UPDATE:

If you’d like to see more pictures of apparently orthodox rabbis hanging out in the Vatican – and giving presents, and apparently just loving that little ole’ Pope-y guy to pieces, then a reader sent me a link to this:

https://rabbiscer.org/?s=Pope#!

That’s part of the CRE (Council for European Rabbis) website.

Here’s a little of its history:

The Conference of European Rabbis (CER) is the primary Orthodox rabbinical alliance in Europe. It unites more than 700 religious leaders of the mainstream synagogue communities in Europe. It was founded in 1956 on the initiative of British Chief Rabbi Sir Israel Brodie, in order to revive the vanquished Jewish communities on the European mainland. Brodie was supported by the chief rabbi of France, Jacob Kaplan, the chief rabbi of Amsterdam, Aharon Schuster and the British Sephardic spiritual leader, Hacham Gaon.

====

Former British Chief Rabbi Sir Israel Brodie is an interesting character.

Here he is, in his little Freemasons pinny:

“Sir Israel Brodie as Grand Chaplain of the United Grand Lodge of England”

====

There’s lots more to say about this, including the fact that Sir Israel Brodie is apparently also linked to that infamous ‘Broda’ family, I’ve been writing so much about recently.

And of course, there is still the Freemasons / Secret Society side of all the things the Frankist / Sabbateans were up to, to cover, which I’m getting to soon, God willing.

====

That these people want to hang out with the Pope, and with Swami Whathisface in the cathedrals of Benedictine Monks, and want to become talmidim of leading Hindus, and give hugs to the Dalai Lama is totally up to them.

It’s a free world, and free choice is the only reason Hashem made us.

But I have a massive issue about all the secrecy going on here, and the fact that so many of our orthodox rabbis are doing things in the so-called ‘interfaith world’ that make me cringe, spiritually, without even explaining what exactly they are doing there.

Either you believe the Torah is God’s revealed word, or you don’t.

Either you believe that the Jewish people are the guardians of the spiritual truth in the world, or you don’t.

Sure, we can learn and must learn from everyone – that’s the talmudic definition of a wise person.

But this type of fawning interfaith – where rabbis are falling over themselves to glad-hand the Pope!!!! I mean, come on…. – and genuine orthodox Judaism just don’t mix.

So – what are all these apparently ‘orthodox’ rabbis doing there?

Really?

You might also like this article:

I think most people would agree that ‘politics’ and religion shouldn’t mix

In an ideal world, our holy rabbis should be far, far away from ‘politics’, because politics always has, and always will, corrupts the people who deal with it.

That is one of the things that came out loud and very clear from all the research I’ve been doing into what really went on in the Jewish community, over the last few hundred years.

The ‘big rabbis’ who were engaged in trade and business, and who were found strolling around the corridors of power as shadlanim, or ‘go-betweens’, between the state and the Jewish communities, so often became corrupted by their experiences.

As King Solomon wrote, there is nothing new under the sun.

As it was then, so it is today.

====

One of my commentators, Rachel, asked me this:

You seem to be zeroing in on Chabad so much write now, but why? They are not among Rav Berland’s persecutors, nor do they hold any political power (at least as far as I can tell).

Is it true?

Is it true that Chabad ‘don’t hold any political power’?

Let’s peel back the covers, take a look, and then make up your own minds.

====

Exhibit 1: The Rebbe’s blessing to Netanyahu

This video comes from April 19, 1988, when a newly-elected MK called Benjamin Netanyahu comes to visit the Rebbe, at 770:

====

Here’s a little of what they say (but I highly recommend you watch it yourself, to see how deferential Bibi is towards the Rebbe.)

Rebbe: I had much satisfaction from your first speech.

Bibi: I heard and saw your message.

Rebbe: May you continue in this path. God helps all those who wish to elevate others. How much more so when one begins with himself. Please don’t hold it against me for speaking about this in public.

Bibi: I intend to continue precisely on this path. I’ve heard the Rebbe’s message well.

Rebbe: It is the best path to avoid war, etc. “With tranquility and restfulness shall you be saved.” Blessing and success.

Bibi: I thank you for the opportunities to be helped by you, and to receive the spiritual guidance you provide not just for me, but for all Jews.

Rebbe: I am just starting my work.

Bibi: I know.

Rebbe: You are also just starting your new role.

Bibi: I have come to you at the start and I intend to return to you many times.

Rebbe: You will have to struggle with 119 others in the Knesset. Surely, you won’t be intimidated. Because God is on this side. Blessing and success with God’s mission.

====

This selfsame Bibi Netanyahu has been behind the ongoing persecution of Rav Berland over the last 7-8 years, which is continuing right now.

The hearing that would see the Rav freed has been pushed off AGAIN, until December 27, 2020, because the State of Israel is trying to kill him in prison.

In the meantime, people who have seen the Rav recently say that he is so emaciated he resembles an concentration camp inmate (God forbid!!!), and has even been refused basic medical treatment for things like a broken hand.

Also, we see that Bibi truly is battling against 119 other members of the Knesset now, to hang on to his position of power, callously lockdown the economy and shove vaccines down everyone’s throats at the bidding of his masters behind the scenes.

So, why did the Rebbe give him a blessing to ‘not be intimidated’ and to continue on to the bitter end?

Did the Rebbe not know about the whole COVID-1984 scamdemic that Bibi is totally complicit with?

Could he not ‘foresee’ the persecution of Rav Berland, that again, Bibi and his corrupt government has been the driving force behind for coming on for a decade, already?

While you’re pondering these questions, let’s continue.

====

Exhibit 2: The 1996 Israeli Election

The first time Netanyahu became PM of Israel, he was pitched against the odious Shimon Peres, but was trailing badly.

At that point, a Chabad multi-millionaire called Joseph Gutnick – who the Rebbe had appointed as his “Special Emissary for the Integrity of the Land of Israel” – stepped in to spend a few million dollars on a campaign to get Bibi elected, under the slogan: “Bibi is good for the Jews.”

The propaganda push worked, and Bibi was duly elected.

Thanks directly to Chabad intervention in Israeli politics.

In case you think that is ancient history, here’s the headline from a Jpost story that ran in July, 2018:

Gutnick has told ‘The Jerusalem Post’ exclusively that he has chosen his candidate to succeed Netanyahu whenever he leaves office: Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked.

Seeing as his last ‘chosen candidate’ is still running the country (into the ground….) almost 25 years after Gutnick first boosted him into the PM’s office, we should take this statement seriously.

Let’s move on, because Chabad isn’t just a major power broker in Israeli politics.

That same pattern is being repeated in corridors of power all over the world.

====

Exhibit 3: Chabad Houses as the ‘back door’ to the Trump White House

Back in April 2017, the news site Politico ran a story about how Chabad was the ‘back door’ between Trump and Russia. Here’s how the story starts, but I highly recommend that you read the whole thing with an open mind:

Chabad of Port Washington, a Jewish community center on Long Island’s Manhasset Bay, sits in a squat brick edifice across from a Shell gas station and a strip mall. The center is an unexceptional building on an unexceptional street, save for one thing: Some of the shortest routes between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin run straight through it.

With all the hysterical ‘anti Trump’ propaganda going on, many of us didn’t want to believe ANY of the things that the other side was throwing at Trump, so this story basically was ignored when it came out.

But last year, when I started researching Trump more in depth, I found one hard fact after another that linked him and his real estate projects to ‘hot’ money coming out of the former Soviet Union.

Many of Trump’s projects were financed by Russian and Eastern European oligarchs with very dodgy reputations, many of whom are Jewish, many of whom are mafia, and many of whom are connected to Chabad (and also, to the State of Israel), in one way or another.

They bought apartments in ‘Trump Towers’ and other Trump developments at massively inflated prices, to launder their cash.

====

No-one wants to really touch the ‘Jewish dimension’ to this story too much, for fear of being called an anti-semite.

But we all want that ‘world of truth’ to be revealed, don’t we? When all this tangled web becomes unpicked, and the world of lies can finally fall….

So, let’s continue exploring the ‘political dimension’ to Chabad.

====

EXHIBIT 4: THE BILLION DOLLAR BUDGET

Let’s return to the Chabad House of Port Washington for a moment.

In this article, you can read how Trump’s Soho project was linked to three ‘interesting’ characters, including Felix Sater, Tevfik Arif and Tamir Sapir. I’m not going to tell why these people are ‘interesting’ – go read the piece, if you want to know.

Here’s the bit I want to quote:

“[A]ll these men have connections to the Chabad movement. Felix Sater was honored as Man of the Year in 2014 by the Port Washington Chabad house. The same Chabad house’s website lists Tevfik Arif, who is not Jewish, “among its top 13 benefactors.”

====

Here’s a bit more about Felix Sater:

Sater sued for alleged money-laundering

====

 

And here’s a video of Felix been given his ‘Man of the Year’ award.

It makes very interesting listening (just give it the first two minutes, you’ll see what I’m talking about. And if you can’t be bothered to hear it, then at least read the comments underneath):

====

====

OK, so Jews, even bad Jews, still like to give charity, I get that.

But please tell me something:

Why would a non-Jew with alleged Russian mafia ties like Tevfik Arif be donating millions of dollars to Chabad?

What is he getting back in return?

Here’s one possible answer to that question:

Menachem Friedman the co-author with Samuel Heilman of “The Rebbe: The Life and Afterlife of Menachem Mendel Schneerson”…says:

“Chabad definitely functions as a business network…

Tzivin [a lawyer connected to Chabad] angrily refutes this, saying, “Chabad does not sell connections for money. Chabad emissaries do not use the argument of connections to get money.

While you are pondering why non-Jewish businessmen with (alleged) pronounced links to the mafia are happy to donate millions for Jewish outreach, here’s a few more things for you to consider.

====

Back in October 2019, Trump ally Rudy Giuliani hit the headlines in connection to another Ukrainian money laundering case.

The two ‘wide boys’ with Rudy are Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, who were indicted last year on campaign finance charges connected with trying to remove Marie Yovanovitch, the U.S.A’s former ambassador to Ukraine, from her post last year.

The trio are giving a ‘shout out’ to Ukrainian Chief Rabbi and Chabad-nik, Moshe Azman:

====

====

Here’s a little more about R’ Moshe Azman:

Since assuming the title of chief rabbi of Ukraine last fall [2005], Moshe Reuven Azman has hosted Ukraine’s president, helped negotiate American-Ukrainian trade deals and invited Israeli soldiers to his Kiev synagogue.

====

Meanwhile, Putin has his very own Chabad rabbi, too, called affectionately Berel Lazar.

Putin really likes R’ Berel. This from Wikipedia:

In 2004, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed an edict to honor him with the Order of Friendship. This award was presented for the contribution made by Rabbi Lazar to developing culture and strengthening friendship between nations within Russia.

In December 2004, he was honored with a national public award, the ‘Minin and Pozharsky’ Order “for his great personal contribution to strengthening the moral and cultural fabric of the Russian State and for reviving spiritual life and religious freedom in the country”.

In June 2005, he was awarded the Medal “60 Years of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War 1941-1945”. He received the medal during the 19th session of the Russian ‘Pobeda’ (Victory) Organizational Committee.

In September 2005, he received the ‘Peter the Great’ First Class Order. The diploma attached to the Order explains that the Chief Rabbi was honored with this award “considering his activities in advancing inter-ethnic and inter-religious relations, and his great contribution to the spiritual rebirth of Russia’s Jewish community and to strengthening Russian state”

It should also be noted that:

Rabbi Lazar is an advocate of interfaith dialogue and sits on the Board of World Religious Leaders for The Elijah Interfaith Institute.

====

I could go on and on and on about the very close ties between Chabad and leading politicians and businessmen in every corner of the globe.

 

Here’s a few more interesting headlines, to show that Chabad like the Democrats just as much as the Republicans, and Shimon Peres just as much as Bibi Netanyahu, and then we’ll conclude:

====

Chabad honors Alan Dershowitz at 770

Famed defense attorney Alan Dershowitz honored at 770 with Torah scroll written in his name, following aid in Shalom Rubashkin case.

====

Chabad’s ties with the late Shimon Peres – also known for his hatred of religious Jews and Torah – also go way, way back:

====

The above comes from THIS article on the Chabad website, which seems almost delusional to me, in its description of Peres’ commitment to Judaism.

But don’t take my word for it, read it for yourself and make up your own mind.

It just strikes me as so interesting, how the Rebbe, and Chabad, have been so intimately involved with all these politicians in Israel (and elsewhere) whilst still claiming they are totally uninvolved in politics.

Here’s another interesting article, this time about how Rabin meets the Rebbe in 770, and then the very next year becomes a MK, and shortly after that, another leading force in Israeli politics:

https://www.chabad.org/therebbe/article_cdo/aid/523714/jewish/The-Rebbe-and-Rabin.htm

====

To conclude.

Chabad is the most unabashedly ‘politically connected’ Jewish organisation in the world.

Chabad shlichim continue to pop up next to the Pope, and next to Putin, and next to Trump, and seem to be closely connected to so many of the world’s biggest business men and oligarchs, Jewish and otherwise.

I don’t have a single doubt that if the Chabad leadership so willed it, they could exert enough pressure domestically and internationally to get Rabbi Eliezer Berland out of prison in a heart beat.

Clearly, they don’t want to do that.

So then the question is this:

Why not?

====

UPDATE:

First, just to make it clear:

There are loads and loads of tremendously good people who are part of the Chabad movement.

I’m writing here about the institution, and it’s corrupt leaders, not about the many good Jews who mamash have poured their heart and soul into trying to serve Hashem, and the Jewish people the best way they can.

I’ve come to see this kind of like the IDF, or the State of Israel.

The institutions and the leadership and the ideology are corrupt.

Most of the people within it, tho, like the seeds in a pomegranate, are good and holy.

And also, being kept in the dark about what’s really going on.

====

That said, there are SO MANY things that we can’t just keep closing our eyes too.

Remember this?

====

R’ Berel Lazar, Putin’s personal ‘rabbi’ is part of the Elijah Interfaith Institute, as referenced above.

He’s such a big part of all this ‘interfaith’ stuff, he’s even get medals and honors from Putin to reward him for his work in this area.

Here’s a little of what Wiki has to say about it:

Elijah Interfaith Institute is a nonprofit, international, UNESCO-sponsored interfaith organization which was founded by Rabbi Alon Goshen-Gottstein in 1997.

The mission of the Elijah Interfaith Institute, encapsulated in its slogan “Sharing Wisdom, Fostering Peace,” is to foster unity in diversity, creating a harmonious world. Through its various activities, Elijah deepens understanding among religious leaders and scholars, and through them, spreads its vision to their various communities….

Headquartered in Jerusalem, Elijah has offices and representatives in different countries, and holds its activities in multiple international settings.

====

Even more concerning is what you find on that organisation’s own website, HERE:

The Elijah Board of World Religious Leaders is unique in mission and scope. It brings together an unparalleled group of religious leaders from all over the world in a profound exchange of ideas that leads to deep engagement with each and spiritual friendship between participants.

This paves the way for transformation within religions and their teachings.

====

Emphasis mine.

Given that Frankism was all about ‘transforming’ the Jewish religion from within, God forbid, and melding Judaism with the other religions to create a ‘one world religion’ loosely based on Catholicism, the ‘accepted’ religion that Frank felt was most akin to, and useful, as a cloak for his own warped antinomianism, this statement rings an alarming bell for me.

What is the Chabad chief rabbi of Russia, Putin’s right-hand man, doing in such a organisation?

Why ARE Chabad rabbis at home in the Vatican, and dancing for the Pope?

How is all this connected?

I’m happy to post up alternate views, as you can see from the liberal policy I have in the comments’ section, but one way or another, the truth has to come out.

====

UPDATE 2:

The founder of The Elijah Institute, Alon Goshen-Gottstein (who is also deeply connected to the State of Israel, and its corrupt institutions), wrote a book called The Jewish Encounter with Hinduism.

Here’s a little of what he says (on page 47):

[H]istory, ideological perspective, and halachic normativity come together in complex ways.

Their permutations allow us to suggest a hard core of what would constitute Judaism and what is the theological platform from which it can be described.

But this hard core is matched by some soft periphery. Should Sabbateanism and Frankism be described as Judaism? And what of early Israelite religion? And what of the Karaites and Samaritans, etc. etc.?

Probably the most challenging issues arise when we explore Christianity, primarily early Christianity, in those terms. The case of early Christianity actually introduces one further criterion into our discussion, that of self-understanding.

In addition to the “objective” criteria of history and halacha and the more ambiguous criterion of religious ideology, we have the purely subjective criterion of self-understanding. Self-understanding constitutes identity, and it plays an important role in the definition of religions, religious communities, and their boundaries.

Contemporary Judaism presents some unresolved challenges revolving around the application of these complicated and, at times, conflicting criteria.

The continuing struggles around the issue of “who is a Jew,” as it applies to the Law of Return in Israel, indicate that definition of a religion and of religious identity are never fully resolved and remain open to continuing debate.

====

Again, make up your own minds about what he’s really hinting at here, but the more you read about Frankist doctrine, the more the alarm bells go off.

====

UPDATE 3:

So, this was what is posted up on the Elijah Institute website HERE, for their last meeting in Jerusalem (note the title):

From Religious to Political Leadership – Monthly Learning and Prayer Meeting

Elijah Interfaith Institute, in cooperation with Praying Together in Jerusalem, invites you to an interfaith prayer and learning gathering on Thursday November 5 at 6 pm Israel time (11 am EDT).

 

 

 

====

Doesn’t this sound ‘reform’ to you?

Also, take a look at where the Board members of Elijah have been meeting – including in the Archabbey of St. Ottilien – and what they are up to (bolded emphasis mine):

[O]ne moving example, shared by an Israeli rabbi.

This rabbi, who is a prominent voice in Israeli public discourse, is involved in interfaith relations only through Elijah (this is the only forum where he felt there is a depth of discourse that is worthy of his investing his time).

One day he took lunch with the most prominent Hindu representative at the meeting. In the course of lunch, as he later told me, he decided to shift his orientation from that of a colleague sharing opinions to a disciple who seeks the wisdom of the master.

Accordingly, the conversation proceeded with him turning to the Hindu master, requesting his advice on key issues that he experiences as part of his own leadership work.

One of the questions he posed concerned how to bless people who come to him. People frequently ask him for blessings, and he is at a loss how to fulfil their request and what that means in terms of his relationship with them and in terms of his own self-image. The Hindu master responded: When people ask for blessings, I simply pray together with them.

The rabbi found this answer most illuminating and has shared with me how it has helped him in the exercise of his own rabbinical duties. 

====

You got that?

A leading Israeli Rabbi – who I’d just LOVE to know the identity of – is hanging out in Abbeys in Germany, getting advice on religious observance from a Hindu master.

Woe to us.

====

Maybe we can get a clue as to who that rabbi might be from looking at this, from the Elijah Institute’s ‘coronavirus’ page:

====

Apart from the reform / Masorti rabbis, and good ol’ Reb Lazar, we have the following rabbis from Israel:

Rabbi Dov Singer is a noted educator in the religious-Zionist sector in Israel. He heads Yeshivat Mekor Chayim and is a founder of a movement of prayer groups that seek to deepen the experience of prayer.

Rabbi Ephraim Kenig is head of the Hassidic community of Breslav in Safed.

Rabbi Yuval Cherlow is head of the hesder Yeshiva Orot Shaul, head of the Religious and Ethics Center in Jerusalem and a prominent voice in the religious Zionist stream of Judaism.

====

Yuval Cherlow is head of the alt-‘frum’ Tzohar organisation, and popped up across Jewish media last week, to urge ‘limited sanctions‘ on all COVID-1984 vaccine refusers.

And yes, I’m as disappointed and surprised as you are, to see Rabbi Ephraim Kenig on this list, too.

====

But that’s not even the worst of it.

Read on. This comes from that same page:

“Elijah is currently engaged in creating a first of its kind interfaith center, to be based in Jerusalem, to be called the Center of HOPE, acronym for House of Prayer and Education.”

Here’s the plans and the ‘vision‘ for this interfaith centre in Jerusalem:

The new facility will include lecture halls for public lectures and conferences; an auditorium for public events and interreligious concerts; an exhibition hall where interreligious art exhibits can be hosted; meeting spaces for scholars’ seminars, interreligious think tanks, and for all interreligious activity that takes place in and around the cause of Jerusalem and the Holy Land; a museological display featuring the life of prayer in world religions; and inspiring prayer spaces where Jews, Christians, Muslims, and others will pray alongside one another.

====

Uck, uck and double uck.

And then, we learn the Elijah project is teaming up with the John Templeton Foundation, on a project to explore how ‘other religions’ saints’, or ‘religious geniuses’ could be inspiring to people in different traditions.

John Templeton is another very interesting character. Maybe we’ll come back to him another time, as I just tripped down yet another rabbit hole with all this. Take a look at the funding areas the John Templeton Foundation is involved in, and tell me if something doesn’t strike you as a little strange:

  • Science and the big questions
  • Individual freedom and free markets
  • Genetics
  • Voluntary family planning
  • Exceptional cognitive talent and genius
  • Character virtue development

The last time I came across such a strange list of funding interests, it was on the Rothschild‘s website.

Lots more stuff to think about here…. We’ll see where this next clue leads.

====

But, we come back to this:

Why are Chabad – and other apparently ‘orthodox’ rabbis – in the middle of all this interfaith stuff?

And how is all this connected to Coronavirus, the Vilna Gaon, and the ongoing struggle to ‘drain the swamp’?

TBC

====

My husband, God bless him, is my harshest critic.

Before I write stuff here, especially ‘controversial’ stuff, I usually discuss it with him first – and his first tendency is to take everything apart, and to believe nothing.

Over the years, this has caused not a few arguments, but increasingly – and especially when I’m dealing with such high-level things as I’m currently writing about – I’ve come to appreciate this trait of his. He’s a lawyer, and he’s very good at picking my arguments apart.

That’s useful, because once all this stuff has passed muster at home, I know it’s 99% bullet-proof, and then I can write about it publically.

====

One of the things he asked me yesterday is ‘how can I claim genealogies are being faked and manipulated on geni.com’?

It’s a good question, and here’s the answer.

====

Let’s start with a conversation I had with someone who is directly related to some ‘big rabbis’, but off the grid of the official history. When this person put up their family details a few years ago, they were contacted by 2 of the (at least…) 3 people who I believe are ‘gatekeepers’ on geni, paid to divert the truth off into convenient ‘false narratives’.

One was called Malka Mysels, and the other Yigal Burnstein.

There is also a third ‘geni gatekeeper’ who pops up again and again in the most unexpected places, called Keith Hanit.

Long story short, my correspondent came to feel increasingly uncomfortable about the information they had posted up about their family history.

After a short period of time, they decided the safest and best course of action for their family would be to just delete their whole profile – which was challenging the ‘official narrative’ – and come off geni.

I am 100% sure there are many more people out there who have had exactly the same experience.

How can I be so sure?

Read on.

====

When I started researching the ancestry of ‘Benjamin Broda’, son of the Eshel Avraham Avraham Broda / Rovigo and alias of Benjamin Rivlin of Shklov, the secret Frankist ‘tzaddik’ who remained in the Jewish community, I stumbled across the following interesting discussion on geni, from July 2020:

https://admin.geni.com/discussions/216349

Here’s the potted version of it, but I highly recommend you click through and read it for yourself, to see how the manipulation of geni is working in real time.

Someone called Lee David Jaffe started a discussion underneath the profile for ‘Benjamin Braude, ABD Grodno’ about his great grandmother, a woman called “Slawa Brodowicz (1800?-1847)“. Here’s a short version of what he was asking:

====

I’m the 3rd great-grandson of Slawa Brodowicz (1800?-1847) and I’m looking for corroboration about her parents. I’ve found many entries for her in JRI-Poland records, mostly the births and marriages of her nine children, but only one includes her maiden name Brodowicz. Otherwise, I haven’t found any documentation that indicates the names of her father and mother.

There are more that 2 dozen family trees that include Slawa in various genealogy sites. Most indicate her father was Benyamin Broda (spelled variously) 1745-1818 and her mother was Rachel Mayer b. 1760….

Other trees report that Slawa’s father was Ick (Icko or Isaac) Brodowicz (1775-1840). JRI-Poland includes a record for Ick’s death in 1840 in Wiżajny, Suwalki, where Slawa lived. Ick’s parents were Abram and Hydyna…

====

Rachel Mayer has been identified in other places as the daughter of Rivka Shoshana Jacob, one of the (hidden….) daughters of Jacob Frank, and his first wife Chana Josefa Falk, the daughter of the ‘bad’ Baal Shem of London, who I wrote about HERE.

Jacob Frank had these 6 daughters before he ‘came out’ publically as the leader of the Sabbateans in Podolia that later morphed into full-on Frankism. Many of them married big Torah scholars in the Jewish community, and trying to track down their descendants is proving a really tricky job.

For example, if it can be proven beyond a doubt that Rachel Mayer, grand-daughter of Jacob Frank, married Binyamin Broda, and that Binyamin Broda’s daughter Leah Golda became the mother of the 4th Lubavitch Rebbe…

Well.

You can see why that might cause some problems.

====

So, let’s go back to that discussion about ‘Slawa Brodowicz’ – the purported sister of ‘Leah Golda’ and Chaim Broda.

====

One of the ways that people are ‘hidden’ on geni is that instead of giving a specific name for them, they are referred to as ‘wife of so-and-so’, etc.

If you look at the above profile for Benjamin Braude (aka Binyamin Rivlin), you’ll notice that no names are given for either of his two wives.

This is not an accident, or because they don’t know who these people are.

Again, we are dealing with the ‘leading lights’ of the Jewish community who intermarried with other ‘illustrious dynasties’ and wrote big books about their yichus.

The names are missing in all these crucial places, because the names would start to make connections that a lot of people don’t want.

Like, for example, potentially connecting ‘Benjamin Braude, ABD of Grodno’ with Jacob Frank.

====

So, back we go to the discussion with the poor Lee Jaffe, ggggg grandson of ‘Slawa Brodowicz’.

All of a sudden, a bunch of outsiders – including Keith Lawrence Hanit – have shown up, and have taken control of the information he’s trying to add into the ‘big picture’ about Benjamin Braude’s marriage and descendants. Here’s a little of what Lee is complaining about:

“I am sure that 3-4 days ago, R’ Benjamin Braude, A.B.D. Grodno was listed as the father of Slawa Ludwinowska and the husband of Rachel Broide/ Margoliot. I would not have begun this discussion under Benjamin otherwise.

As said, I’m new to Geni and I don’t now who Kevin, Samuel or Dimitri are or why they have taken a role, but someone has made changes that don’t make sense. I’m not interested in engaging in this discussion any further if this is the way this goes.”

====

Poor guy.

One of these ‘geni experts’ then lays into him, for questioning why they are trying to deliberately cover up the new information, like this:

“I trust that you and Mel Werbach are researching this properly and have put in a lot more effort and time than I have or plan on doing.

It does seem however that the issue of Slawa has led us into another mess which I’ve begun trying to fix. She had been attached to R’ Benjamin Braude, A.B.D. Grodno and he had been merged into Reb Sender/Alexander Ephraim Leb Broide/ Margoliot. I believe that merge was done based on https://zohariststories.blogspot.com/2019/09/sheklov-hasidim.html which I’m certain is a load of nonsense.”

====

That link to zohariststhories is the blog of Athol Bloomer, descendent of Jacob Frank, and self-identified as a ‘Hebrew Catholic’ i.e., a Frankist.

Again, there is a lot of disinformation on Athol Bloomer’s blog too, but at least some of the information about Frank’s descendants is credible, and I’m standing a lot of it up on it’s own merits, from independent sources that are NOT Athol Bloomer, or linked to him.

As we’ve been discovering on this blog, Jacob Frank’s ancestors AND descendants have all been totally whitewashed out of official Jewish history.

And that process has also occurred for all the other notorious ‘Shabbatean prophets’ like the Eshel Avraham, and Hershel Zoref, and Mordechai Mokaich, and Yonatan Eybshutz, and Nathan of Gaza,, and even, for the descendants of Shabtai Tzvi himself, many of whom also remained within the Jewish community.

====

If you try to click on the family tree that Lee Jaffe put up on ancestry.com, referred to in his comments, you’ll see it’s now gone.

Lee’s last comment on geni was this:

“What I would like is to see some supporting sources for the existing records and the recent changes. Why would Slawa’s record be unlinked as a child or Benjamin and moved to his brother Sender’s offspring? And since we still don’t know anything about Rachel Mayer why would her link as wife of Benjamin also move to Sender? If there is good reason, I’d like to see that info.”

====

They got to him, just like they got to the other person who spoke to me firsthand, about their experience on geni.

====

Here are some other ways the information is being manipulated, concealed and distorted on geni:

====

Above, you’ll find the profile for Rabbi Avraham Kalisker, the head of the the chassidim in Eretz Yisrael who fell out with the Alter Rebbe, Shneur Zalman, after he published the Tanya in 1797. (I wrote about that HERE.)

It took me a week of breaking my head reading through a ton of other sources, and other geni profiles, and other information, to make the links between R’ Avraham Kalisker, Shneur Zalman, the Maggid of Mezritch and the Tzemech Tzedek, Chabad Rebbe #3.

R’ Avraham Kalisker’s profile links to no-one else’s.

No siblings, no real details about his parents, no descendents.

And it’s not because ‘they’ don’t know…. they really DO know.

And they are deliberately hiding the information, because then we’d understand way more about how R’ Avraham Kalisker was linked, genealogically, to Shneur Zalman, and how both were linked to the Vilna Gaon, and how all of them were somehow linked to other people that they have tried to ‘whitewash’ out of official history.

So that’s another way the information is being obscured and distorted.

====

And then, we have things like this going on:

====

This is an ‘alternative’ profile that was put up for Moshe Shneuri, the Alter Rebbe’s youngest son who DEFINITELY converted to Catholicism in 1820.

Elsewhere, he’s identified as a ‘open’ Frankist.

In this profile, Moshe is identified as the SON of ‘Shalom Shachne Altshuler‘ – who we wrote about a lot in the last post, who is meant to have married Shterna Segal – aka, the wife of the Alter Rebbe.

That would possibly identify ‘Shalom Shachne’ as being one and the same as the Alter Rebbe, and link him possibly to being the son of R’ Avraham of Kalisker, and then Menachem Mendel (Chabad #3) would be the Alter Rebbe’s son, not his grandson.

Which would explain why he was raised in his home, and why the leadership passed to him, and NOT to one of the Mitteler Rebbe’s own children.

====

By contrast, in the official history, Shalom Shachne Altshuler is the grandson of the Maggid of Mezritch via his daughter Ruhama, who is meant to have married both R’ Avraham Kalisker, and also ‘Noach Altshuler‘.

According to Chabad, Shalom Shachne marries Shneur Zalman’s daughter Devorah Leah, and their son, Menachem Mendel, becomes the 3rd Chabad Rebbe, the Tzemech Tzedek.

====

Now, I’m not saying that the above profile is correct – there is so much disinformation going on, it’s almost impossible to tell.

What I AM saying is that there is clearly a lot of deliberate disinformation going on about the Chabad family tree, and instead of dealing with that honestly, they are instead going after the people who are posting up ‘dissenting information’ and bullying them to remove it.

On this profile, you’ll see that in big, shouting CAPITAL LETTERS, they have tagged this profile is DUPLICATE, SHOULD BE DELETED.

Most people will see that, and instantly dismiss this profile as erroneous and wrong.

But, I’m not most people.

====

To conclude.

I am seeing the tactics described above on so many of the profiles of so many important Jewish leaders and figures.

This cover-up is stretching across the Jewish world.

Take a look at who is managing the geni profile for the Vilna Gaon:

====

Well, who would have believed it!

It’s our hold friend Kevin Lawrence Hanit, the same guy who popped up to scare off Lee Jaffe, who was trying to connect ‘Benjamin Braude’ to his ggggg grandma Slawa Brodowicz.

What a CO-INC-ID-ENCE.

Here’s another interesting discussion with ‘Kevin’, who is now busying making the Vilna Gaon’s family tree conform to ‘official history’:

“Kevin. By extracting names from Eliyahu’s Branches and inserting them in Geni you may be breaching the copyright held by the publisher Avotaynu.

Furthermore, the book was published nineteen years ago since when I have collected updates which require addition, deletions and amendments which I hope one day to incorporate in my database which hopefully may be made available on the internet in such a way that it cannot be tampered with.”

====

Poor Chaim Freedman (author of ‘Eliyahu’s Branches’).

He stopped updating his site a few years’ ago, despite having a wealth of new DNA information that links people like Benjamin Netanyahu and Israeli President Reuven Rivlin straight to the Vilna Gaon.

My guess is that getting that ‘truth’ out there is currently a pretty dangerous business.

It’s easier to sit on it, than to open that massive Pandora’s box that yours truly somehow was dumb enough to start airing out.

====

Here’s another discussion on geni, where you’ll see how the ‘gatekeepers’ are deliberately keeping things mixed up, over even simple things like where the ‘Vilna Gaon’ was born, and how many wives he had:

There are many errors on GENI in the Gaon’s family. Three wives istead of two, two daughters with the same name Khiena, children who were not children. There are 14 mangaers of the profile – too many cooks spoilt the broth.
Users beware of the material presented here.
See my book “Eliyahu’s Branches, the Descendants of the Vilna Gaon and His Family” (Avotaynu 1997) or contact me, Chaim Freedman.

====

I could go on (and on and on….) with this.

Do the experiment yourself: go look up some of the people I’ve mentioned here, and see how many dead ends you run into, how many ‘duplicate profiles’, how many people seem to be married to 4 wives, how many times ‘Keith Lawrence Hanit’, or ‘Malka Mysels’ pops up to keep things confused and muddled – even on totally random profiles.

It’s got to the stage that when I see their names on a profile, I just KNOW that something is being carefully managed or covered up. And that in itself is also proving useful, going forward.

====

The Jewish nation has a right to know what REALLY happened, concerning so many of our leaders in the past.

Chabad, in particular, has been the main conduit for so much that we have been taught to believe was factual history.

They are the source for the whole ‘dispute’ between the Vilna Gaon and the Alter Rebbe.

They are the source for so much of the history of the Jewish communities in Europe before that, and the stories about the Maharal of Prague and his descendants.

If we can’t trust what they have been telling us, that has implications for every area of modern Jewish life, in particular, what really went on around the creation of the State of Israel, and WHO is really pulling the strings here, behind the scenes.

And of course, let’s not forget there’s another branch of the family – the Rothschilds and Schiffs and the Oppenheimers and the Wertheimers – that also needs to be reintegrated into this mix.

====

I’m coming to the tentative conclusion that ‘Rothschilds and Schiffs’ are also the same family.

And that all this is somehow connected to the Bacharach family, via the known Sabbatean R’ Yair Chaim Bacharach (aka the ‘Chavas Yair’), and R’ Yeshaya Horowitz, aka the ‘Shlah Hakadosh’.

But I can’t figure all this out by myself, and time is running out to ‘unpick history’ so we can move forward into geula the sweet way.

====

I’ll let you know if what I wrote here passed the husband test.

But in the meantime, please help me to figure this out.

It’s important.

Because we really ARE just one big family, and once we’ve internalised that, all the petty squabbling, and all the ‘divide and conquer’ strategies the elitists have been using to keep us at each other’s throats, and so weak, disorganised and far away from God, will disappear.

And we can get geula the sweet way.

====

UPDATE:

I forgot to mention another way the ‘gatekeepers’ are distorting history on geni.

They also give deliberately incorrect birth dates for key individuals – often ranging across almost a century! – which makes it very hard to see who came first, who is the father, who is the son, and then enables them to ‘rub out’ some descendants, while also fabricating others.

Again, so much of this information is extant in the pinchasim of the kehillot, which carefully kept track of births, marriages and deaths, much like the Chief Rabbinate of every country continues to do today. And where those records were lost or destroyed because of tragedies, much of the information has still been stored in non-Jewish sources, much as the civil register of births, deaths and marriages functions today, alongside that of the Jewish community.

Why go to all this trouble?

Because so many of our ‘big families’ were directly and obviously connected to known Sabbateans and Frankists.

(And then later on, these ‘secret’ Sabbateans and Frankists effortlessly morphed into the leading lights of the haskalah and reform and Zionist movements.)

That doesn’t mean every member of those families were necessarily Sabbateans and Frankists, but it DOES mean that we can’t just assume that everyone in the position of a ‘big rabbi’ with ‘good yichus’ was certainly operating from the side of good.

Because that just wasn’t the case.

In today’s bit of the ‘onion’, we’ll be taking a look at the strange story of the the Tzemach Tzedek’s paternity.

If you’ve been following this sage along with me here on the blog, (all links to previous posts at the end of this one) – you’ll already know that most of ‘official’ Jewish history from the last 400 years has been built on lies.

There are so many lies being told about so many different things, that it’s been totally overwhelming to try and unpick it all in any easy-to-understand way. But BH, I feel that a (small…) light is starting to shine at the end of that very long tunnel.

My modus operandi is to just keep putting out the bits of ‘truth’ I’m managing to piece together, without really having the bigger picture still, in the hopes that even this is helping to move things forward in some way, and to get us to the ‘world of truth’ required for geula.

So in today’s installment, let’s take a closer look at the story of the Tzemach Tzedek, Chabad’s Rebbe #3.

====

Let’s start with what Chabad themselves tell us, about who the Tzemech Tzedek’s parents are:

Rabbi Menachem Mendel—who was to become known as the as the ‘Tzemach Tzedek’, the title of his most famous work—was born in the city of Liozna on Erev Rosh Hashanah 5549, to his parents Rabbi Shalom and Rebbetzin Devorah Leah Shachna. Rabbi Shalom was the son of Rabbi Noach Altshuler, a respected disciple of Rabbi Menachem Mendel of Vitebsk, Devorah Leah was the daughter of Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liadi, the first rebbe of Chabad.

====

The Chabad timeline linked to above gives you the whole ‘story’, including how Menachem Mendel’s mother died young, and so he was raised in the home of the Alter Rebbe.

The Alter Rebbe then makes the shidduch between the Tzemech Tzedek, and the Mitteler Rebbe’s daughter Chaya Mushka. The Mitteler Rebbe is the Alter Rebbe’s son, R’ DovBer Schneurson, who wins the ‘succession war’ for who will lead Chabad against the Alter Rebbe’s youngest son, Moshe.

(In one version of this story, Moshe converts to catholicism as a result of not being crowned Rebbe #2).

====

Many things puzzled me about this ‘story’.

Firstly, what happened to the Tzemach Tzedech’s father, Shalom Shachne Altshuler, that he went to live with his grandfather, the Alter Rebbe?

Second, why did the leadership pass on to Menachem Mendel, when R’ DovBer had plenty of his own sons (all also ‘outstandingly pious individuals’, according to Chabad lore)?

(I started to vaguely answer that second question, in THIS post.)

So, I girded my loins and have spent literally hours, days and weeks trying to piece together the real story.

And here’s where I got to.

====

Let’s begin with the Maggid of Mezritch, R’ Dov Ber ben Avraham, which you can read about broadly HERE.

Dov Ber’s father was Avraham of Lukatch, but as I’m finding SO VERY OFTEN with so many of our illustrious Jewish families, there are very few other details of any family members, certainly no siblings, and it hardly ever goes back further than their parents, also with no details of any other family members.

Doesn’t this strike you as strange?

Especially as so many of our leaders were connected to each other, married into each others’ families, and were leaders of the Jewish community (and therefore extent even in gentile documents, who were strictly keeping track of the Jews in their localities, for tax purposes)?

My best guess (based on this link) is that Rav Dov Ber was related to the Horowitz family, descended from the SHLAH, who later moved to Tiberius, where he’s buried next to the Rambam.

Let’s continue.

====

The Maggid of Mezritch has a sister, Ruhama.

Here’s where things are about to get mighty strange again.

Ruhama’s first husband is apparently ‘R’ Noach Altshuler’.

Noach Altshuler and Ruhama have a son, Shalom Shachne Altshuler, who is meant to marry Devorah Leah Schneuri (who Chabad say is one of the daughters of the Alter Rebbe).

Together, they have a son – the Tzemech Tzedek, Chabad Rebbe #3.

No where does Chabad official literature tell us that the ‘Tzemech Tzedek’ is the great nephew of the Maggid of Mezritch.

Why not?

====

Let’s continue.

Ruhama has a second husband (I don’t know if he comes before or after Noach Altshuler), who is none other than Rabbi Abraham Kalisker.

In case you don’t know who that is, here’s a potted (official…) history.

R Abraham Kalisker and R’ Menachem Mendel of Vitebsk move to Israel in 1777 as part of the ‘chassidic aliya’. Shneur Zalman (the Alter Rebbe) also has plans to move to Israel with this group, but Menachem Mendel tells him to cancel them, and stay back in Belarussia, instead.

R’ Abraham Kalisker was formerly a study partner of the Vilna Gaon, before becoming a ‘chassid’.

When Menachem Mendel of Vitebsk passes away in 1788, R’ Avraham Kalisker takes over as leader of the chassidim in Eretz Yisrael, and also takes over the administration of ‘The Holy Land Fund‘, the major way that the Ashkenazi community in Israel is funded by the Jewish diaspora.

====

Try to search for any information The Holy Land Fund, and you’ll quickly hit a brick wall.

It’s another one of the things on my ‘hot mess-o-meter’ to come back to, but from 1788 on, ‘The Holy Land Fund’ seems to have been taken over by the Alter Rebbe, and morphs into ‘Colel Chabad’.

Colel Chabad is still operating today, with a big budget. According to Wikipedia:

“Colel Chabad was the main charity supported by Sholom Rubashkin, who donated millions of dollars from profits earned by his now-bankrupt company, Agriprocessors.”

Like I said, we’ll come back to this topic another time.

====

For now, it’s enough to know that following the Alter Rebbe’s publication of the Tanya, in 1797, he has a serious falling out with R’ Abraham Kalishker.

The essence of the dispute is that R’ Kalishker feels that the true path of chassidut should be based on emunat tzaddikim, and on simple emuna in Hashem, and NOT on revealing ‘secrets of the Torah’. R’ Avraham feels the Tanya is revealing too much of these kabbalistic secrets to the masses, and taking the focus off simple emuna.

R’ Asher of Karlin (more on him in a moment) sides with the Kalishker Rebbe; R’ Levi Yitzhak of Berdichev sides with the the Alter Rebbe, and R’ Nachman tries to make peace between the two sides, when he visits Eretz Yisrael in 1798-9.

====

The first person Rabbenu goes to see when he returns from Israel is the Alter Rebbe. But it’s also interesting to note that in multiple places in his works, Rabbenu stresses that the teachings of the Alter Rebbe are wrong:

“On his way to the Holy Land the Rebbe travelled through Nikolayev and Kherson to get to Odessa. He spent Shavuot in Kherson and there he gave a number of outstanding lessons, including one on the verse, “He calmed the storm,” (Psalms 107:29).

There were a number of followers of R. Shneur Zalman of Liadi in town. They brought some of his teachings for the Rebbe to see. The Rebbe took issue with R. Zalman’s teachings and showed his followers that what he said was not correct.”

– Taken from Tzaddik, #29, page 47.

====

The argument between R’ Kalishker (who Rabbenu praises very highly) and the Alter Rebbe gets really nasty.

Around 15 of the families affiliated with Shneur Zalman leave Tiberius, and move down to Hevron to start the community there, as a result of this dispute (led by R’Israel Jaffe.)

It’s hard to know what else occurred as a result, (and because the true identity of R’ Avraham Kalishker has been deliberately obscured, tracking that information down is going to be tricky) – but I can still tell you this:

R’ Avraham Kalishker, the Alter Rebbe’s ‘big enemy’, is also at least the stepfather of the Alter Rebbe’s son-in-law, Shalom Shachne Altshuler, father of the Tzemech Tzedek (Chabad Rebbe #3).

====

But that’s not where this mystery about Shalom Shachne Altshuler ends.

When R’ Dov Ber of Mezritch ‘takes over’ as the leader of chassidut, following the Baal Shem Tov’s passing in 1760, there is a rift between his followers.

It wasn’t an entirely smooth transition, and the followers of the BESHT who fall in behind the Maggid of Mezritch come to be known as the Chevra Kaddisha (holy society), and it included the following:

====

There are two R’ Aharons of Karlin.

This first one died just a year before the Maggid of Mezritch dies, in 1772. He’s married to someone called Bracha, and has three children:

  • R’ Asher of Karlin (aka R’ Asher of Stolin)
  • Mosher Ber Perlow
  • Rivkah – who also marries Rabbi Shalom Shachne Altshuler, the father of the Tzemech Tzedek (Chabad Rebbe #3).

So basically, the Tzemech Tzedek’s step grandfather is R’ Avraham Kalisker, and his other step-grandfather is R’ Asher of Karlin-Stolin – who both fell out with the Baal HaTanya in a big way, over his teachings.

Where ‘Devorah Leah’, the Alter Rebbe’s apparent daughter, fits into all this, I can’t tell you.

The ‘official page’ for her on Chabadpedia now shows this:

====

Chabad lore states that she was born in 1766, and married Shalom Shachne Altshuler in 1787.

21 is mighty old to be getting married at a time when most people were married around 13 years old.

For example, her son, the Tzemech Tzedek is apparently betrothed at 8 (!), married at 13, and a father by 14.

Menachem Mendel is born in 1789, then Devorah Leah dies in 1802.

Where her husband, Shalom Shachne Altshuler, is meant to be in all this, I don’t know. And when he is meant to have married to Rivka, daughter of R’ Asher of Karlin-Stolin, I also don’t know.

But here’s why all this matters.

====

Everywhere I turn with researching this stuff, I’m hitting dead ends, deliberate misinformation and even outright lies and cover ups.

At this stage in history, I feel we need to know the truth of our past, however yucky that might be.

The time for telling tall stories about our ancestors – that whitewash their human frailties and issues – is over.

====

As you can probably guess, the information I’m sharing here on the blog is just a fraction of the stuff I’m wading through.

What is coming clear into view, at least at the ‘big picture’ level, is that the vast majority of our gadolim and tzaddikim, on all sides, were closely related to zealous ‘believers’ in Shabtai Tzvi, false prophets of Shabtai Tzvi, and also open and ‘closet’ Frankists.

To put this another way:

There is no such thing as ‘good yichus’.

The biggest tzaddikim and the biggest evildoers sprung from the same source, the same gene pool.

That’s probably one of the reasons why Rebbe Nachman would get so annoyed, when people would claim he only achieved his spiritual levels thanks to his holy ancestors.

He for sure knew the secret that the biggest fruit, spiritually, always comes wrapped up in the biggest ‘peel’, or klipa of evil.

And the only way we break this ‘peel’ is by working to overcome our own bad middot.

====

Going forward, we need to be honest about all this.

Because the people with the bad middot (but ‘good’ yichus….) are still running the show in the Jewish world.

Did you know Netanyahu and Reuben Rivlin are descended from the Vilna Gaon?

Did you know that nearly all the chassidic dynasties come from just 3 families?

(And are also related to the Vilna Gaon.)

Did you know that descendants of Shabtai Tzvi, and Nathan of Gaza, and Jacob Frank – and many, many more nasty people, maskilim, reformers and ‘fake’ moshiach-wannabes – are literally intertwined at every level of the family trees of our current Jewish leaders?

And not just in the secular world, also in the frummest-of-frum communities.

====

To give some concrete examples:

The main people in the chareidi world who have been persecuting Rabbi Eliezer Berland trace back to this same, problematic, group of people.

And some of today’s biggest rabbis in Bnei Brak had ancestors who were secret Sabbateans, and led the charge towards ‘modernising’ their Jewish communities and destroying the Torah way of life.

====

I don’t think God wants me shaking out every single skeleton in the cupboards of all our ‘leaders’.

I certainly don’t want to be spending the rest of my life doing this.

But it’s clear to me, that as a community we have to come clean, and we have to stop telling made-up stories about just how ‘good and holy’ our ancestors were.

They also struggled with depression, anger, hatred, jealousy and lack of faith, just like we sometimes do.

They also mistreated their kids, and spoke abusively to their spouses, and cheated on their taxes, and stole things they shouldn’t have, and pretended to be something they really weren’t, just to keep the respect of their friends and neighbors.

And those are just the good ones.

====

The world of truth is coming, and it can’t be stopped.

Someone just called me and told that people are only prepared to believe the truth now, because so many of us have got so sick of all the lies being told.

We don’t want to hear anymore made up stuff about our ancestors; we don’t want ‘gate keepers’ in our community distorting history and manipulating us with information just so they can keep controlling and misleading us.

And most of all, we don’t want arch hypocrites with bad middot and big beards running our schools, and controlling our communities, and damaging the souls of our holy children with all their fake Torah and emphasis on external piety.

(At least, I don’t.)

====

So, it’s time to come clean, and to make some real teshuva.

Each of us in our own dalet amot can begin that process, and then it will widen up and out to our friends, families, communities and institutions.

When we stop accepting lies in our own lives, we’ll stop tolerating them and enabling them to be told in the wider world.

That change starts with me and you.

Are you ready?

Probably like everyone else out there, I’m struggling a bit at the moment.

Most of the time I’m fine, but then I’ll get hit with a big wave of yeoush, or a big wave of sadness, and then I don’t feel like doing anything much.

Or, I’ll feel totally overwhelmed.

Or, I’ll feel some not so low level panic.

And I know I’m not alone.

====

My middot are getting a really good work out at the moment, and I’m not always acting and reacting the way I would like.

I’m spending a lot of time online, researching all these Shabbatean Frankist people, and I’m aware that as well as being useful (at least on some level…) it’s also totally an ‘escape from reality’ project, to help me cope with a reality that I really don’t like so much, or find very easy.

====

Today, one of my kids wanted the house to herself, so she could invite 15 classmates around and just whoop it up without any adults around.

I’m trying to accommodate my teens anyway I can, to try and preserve their mental health in a world gone mad.

So I said ‘yes’.

And then, I pondered to myself what on earth I was going to do, to get myself ‘out of the way’ while she whoops it up in the house.

I mean, the restaurants and cafes (that re-opened….) are all take-out only.

I can’t stand shopping with a mask.

And because the weather is pouring rain and thunder storms, long walks in nature or by the beach were also out.

As usual, the Rav came to the rescue.

====

I checked the shuvubanim website, and saw that the indefatigable Aron Shwartz was arranging another protest on behalf of the Rav, this time a convoy of cars to leave from Bnai Brak at 1.30 today, headed towards the High Court in Jerusalem.

I had a date!

Of course, it was later than planned. It only really got going at 2.30.

And of course, there weren’t a ton of cars who showed up for it.

A lot of Shuvu Banim don’t have cars, in the first place.

And the weather was so bad, it’s amazing anyone showed up, honestly.

But for the first hour, I was driving along in the convoy feeling quietly happy that I was part of this outfit.

Then, we took a wrong turn down the wrong road, and all of a sudden, my mood plummeted.

====

What the heck am I doing here?!? 

I’m totally wasting my time….

How is this going to make even the smallest bit of difference, barely a minyan in a few cars driving slowly on the side of the road in the pouring rain and the dark?

====

For an hour, I had maximum yeoush and sadness and ‘lowliness’ going on again.

Then we got to Jerusalem, and that’s when we started beeping loudly, as our small convoy drove through some of the major chareidi neighborhoods with our two signs about the Rav stuck on the first and last cars in line.

As a rule, I try very hard to NOT beep.

But man, was I beeping a ton today.

And as I beeped – repeatedly – Hashem reminded me that the wars of Am Yisrael were never fought with big armies and overwhelming force.

They were fought with very small groups of Jews, who believed in something bigger than them.

====

That’s how the walls of Jericho fell.

That’s how the Maccabees overcame the Greeks.

All I have to do is show up, and beep a little, and God is going to make all those walls start tumbling down by themselves.

BH, very soon.
