So much of Jewish life revolves around the Jewish community.

Wherever Jews happen to live, whatever language they happen to speak, whatever Jewish traditions, customs and laws they happen to keep (or not…) being part of a community will often figure as a very major part of Jewish life.

No two communities are the same, each is a unique blend of the history, personalities, beliefs and customs that have molded it over the generations. While so many of the different community customs have been lost over the years, many Jews are still striving to maintain their cultural heritage, and to apply to Jewish life in the modern world, in the face of a growing number of issues, challenges and changes.

In this category, we’ll take a look at a bunch of topics including:

  • Jewish Communal Events – what’s really shaping modern Jewish life
  • Jewish News – the information that we really need to know about living as a Jew today
  • The importance of Jewish communal life
  • History of Jewish community – in all sorts of different places around the globe
  • Day-to-day relationships – both intramural and extramural, with other peoples and faiths
  • Modern values in kehillas – and how they are changing, sometimes unrecognisably, from traditional Torah values
  • Jewish community issues and challenges – both within Israel, and abroad
  • Community leaders, rabbis, and personalities.

My daughter showed me this video from Avi Barak.

It totally took my breath away.

Not because he made a great case for ‘why not to vaccinate’ or anything like that.

But because he made a great case for why we need to stop hating each other, and stop falling into the trap being set for us by people who want to ‘divide and conquer’.

It’s only in Hebrew, BH, someone will gird their loins to translate it into English.


Unusually for me, I felt moved to spam this out to a few people in email after I watched it.

(If you were one of them, I apologise…)

It just moved me so much, to see an apparently secular Israeli guy giving a mussar shiur to rival anything I’ve heard for a very long time.

Achdut and respecting the other – and having the courage to stand up for truth and our basic rights and personal freedoms – is how we get out of this mess we are currently in.

Geula is sprouting all over the country right now, in some very unexpected ways.

There are lots of reasons to be optimistic about what happens next.

And with God’s help, I will try to start writing more about that stuff too now, or at least, to include that note of hope in with some of the ‘hard’ things I sometimes put up on the blog.


God loves us!

God can do anything.

He can heal any illness, even those caused by diabolical nanotech.

And they aren’t going to win.

More and more of the beautiful souls – the real Am Yisrael – are starting to speak up and shine their real light into the world.

Those people who know it’s not the outside appearance that matters, but the heart, the soul.

BH, it’s going to be a really good year this year.


I just sat down to try to figure out ‘what am I doing with myself this year’.

The big piece of paper I put out on the table to try and help me figure all this stuff out is empty.

But I had an idea while I was doing some hitbodedut on why nothing was coming to me, and this is it:

Just let God decide.

If I take this idea seriously, the implications are awesome, and kind of exciting.


For example, I was pondering what I should be focusing on writing next.

I still have so many tabs open… so many paths to follow… so many subjects to cover…

And at the same time, I feel like doing things differently this year, and not just picking up where I left off in 5781.

As I was rolling this around, an email popped into my inbox asking me if I knew that the late Lord Rabbi Jonathan Sacks was the great-grandson of the founder of Petach Tikva, one Aryeh Leib Frumkin.


I didn’t, but I started looking at more of the links my correspondent, D., sent me – and whaddya know?


Lord Rabbi Jonathan Sacks is directly related to that same Yehoshua Zeitlin who seems to be in the middle of so very much of what went wrong in the Jewish community, approximately 250 years ago.

Before I get back into all that, let me finish the thought:

I’m letting God decide what I’m doing this year.

Wherever He takes me, whatever options or information or people He sends me, I’m going to be ‘open’ to receiving it, and not just trying to follow my own plan, or my own ideas.

What do I know anyway?


I can already see it makes life way more interesting, to let God show me what I should be doing next, instead of trying to dictate things myself.

So, let’s get back to Aryeh Leib Frumkin.

Why does God want me to look over there, right now?

I start clicking around, and I notice that Lord Rabbi Jonathan Sacks apparently traces back to a son of the original Yehoshua Zeitlin named Moshe Zeitlin.


There’s a couple of things I find interesting about this.

Firstly, that such a wealthy, privileged young man apparently just ‘dropped out’ of Russian Jewish society….

I used to believe fairy tales like this in the old days, but now, I tend to think that these ‘dead end stories’ are just a way of hiding what really happened next. Which is when I remember that someone else apparently had a son named Moshe, in the same geographical area, in roughly the same time frame, who also kind of ‘disappeared’ in mysterious circumstances:


I’ve already written a ton about this particular mysterious ‘Moshe’, but here’s what’s really interesting, for this post:

Moshe Schneuri’s daughter Rachel marries a Fundaminsky.

And we already know from THIS post that ‘Fundaminsky’ was a name adopted by at least part of the Zeitlin family, to obscure their origins.

Fondaminskys, Zeitlins and Bolsheviks

And that the ‘big’, mysterious, Chabad family of Tumarkin were also intermarrying with the Zeitlin / Fundaminskys:


So, it’s not totally ‘out there’ for me to start pondering if ‘Moshe Zeitlin’ – son of Yehoshua Zeitlin – and ‘Moshe Schneuri’ – apparently the son of the Alter Rebbe of Chabad – are one and the same person.

While you’re digesting that, let’s see what else pops up that might throw some more light on the subject.


The guy who is putting a lot of info up on Geni about this branch of Zeitlins is called Eliezer Dovid Zeitlin, and he has a photo album.


Under Moshe Zeitlin’s profile, there are 3 titchy photos of documents that I just know have some crucial, pertinent information to start unwinding this whole Chabad / Zeitlin / Lord Rabbi Jonathan Sacks story.

But they are too titchy to read with the naked eye, and I don’t have ‘permission’ to click on them:


But lucky for me, I recently bought a massive magnifying glass, so I will come back to this, and I find out anything more, I’ll let you know in an update. And if there are any sharp-eyed readers out there who can decipher this in the meantime- please do!


I keep looking for more clues, and I get to one Chaim Menachem Mendel Zeitlin (son of Shneur Zalman (Jacob?) Zeitlin, who is another one of ‘Moshe Zeitlin’s’ grandsons, of the same generation as Aryeh Leib Frumkin.


In the notes underneath his profile, I read this:

Escaped Russia in the early 1900’s to Fiume, while using the family name Gintzburgh. R’ C.M. Mendel met his family there for they came years earlier while he was imprisoned in Smolensk.

Eventually 1912 ? he continued on to Eretz Yisroel / Ottoman Empire originally with Bluma (I think on a tape from Tante Rivka Tenenbaum) to scout out an apartment together. Bluma returned to Europe, while he stayed on alone and joined the Kollel of Yeshiva Chayeh Olam in the Old City Yerushalayim, it was considered the Chassidishe Kollel (so I heard) –Here too he used the name Gintzburgh [probably the reason his name on the Matzeiva was also Gintzburgh because the death records were controlled by the Turkish-Ottoman Empire and that’s how he entered E.Y. from Fiume?]


So now, I have a third surname to add to the list for the Zeitlins, along with ‘Fundaminsky’, namely ‘Gintzburgh’.

Chaim ‘Menachem Mendel’ Zeitlin / Gintzburgh is married to a lady called Bluma.

This snippet comes from underneath her geni profile:

Bluma was the Third Generation from the Baal Hatanya – Rebbe Shneur Zalmen of Liadi the First Rebbe of Chabad Lubavitch. Her mother Rivka was a daughter of Frieda who was a daughter of the Baal Hatanya. Bluma was a cousin with the Rebbe Resha”b – Sholom Dov Ber of Chabad Lubavitch.”


There’s just one problem with this…. ‘official Chabad genealogy’ only records two children for Frieda Schneuri, both sons:


Here’s some more interesting things we learn from Frieda’s geni profile:

Frieda’s son, Boruch, marries the daughter of Binyomin Kletzker.

We’ve seen that name before, in THIS post. Here’s the relevant snippet:

 I immediately see that this Aharon Tumarkin is:

a) Meant to be married to an ‘anonymous’ Eisenstadt / Kletzker.

b) That this same anonymous Eisenstadt / Kletzker woman is also the wife of the Alter Rebbe’s grandson, oneBaruch Klutzkar’.

(If your head is spinning right now, join the club. It’s par for the course with all this stuff, but I’m going to push through the ‘confusion’ to try and drag some more of the truth out into the light. I’ll sum all the main findings up at the bottom of the post for those with weak constitutions.)


The following comes from THIS attached document (in Hebrew and Yiddish).



(This is all talking about this same guy, Benjamin Eisenstadt / Kletzker):

His sons-in-law

One of his children married the Rabbi Baruch of Shklov / Orsha, the second son of Rabbi Eliyahu (ben Rabbi Mordechai), and the Rabbanit Frieda, daughter of the Alter Rebbe.

The daughter of Rabbi Baruch was the daughter-in-law of the Tzemach Tzedek, the wife of his son R’ Yaakov, who died during the lifetime of the Tzemach Tzedek.

[Benjamin Kletzker’s] second son-in-law was Rabbi Aharon Tumarkin, (the grandfather of ‘Chatan Danan).

His third son-in-law was ‘the big, famous’ Rabbi Ber Leib Baruchin, from Plotsk.


Rabbi Baruch of Shklov is very likely one and the same as the maskil, Freemason and court physician to Prince Radziwill, Baruch Shick of Shklov.

According to the document quoted above, which is meticulously footnoted from conventional Chabad sources, Baruch of Shklov’s maternal grandfather is Shneur Zalman, aka the Alter Rebbe.

But according to the Jew-Age website HERE, Baruch Shick of Shklov’s maternal grandfather is none other than… the Sha’agat Aryeh.


Notice that the surname of the Sha’agat Aryeh is GINZBURG.

In the post on Yitzhak Rabin that a lot of this info about Baruch Shick comes from, we learned that:

Israeli PM Yitzhak Rabin was the direct descendant of the Alter Rebbe of Chabad.

Here’s how that works:

Alter Rebbe > Frieda > Baruch Shick of Shklov > Unknown child > R’ Yaakov Baruchin > > > > Rosa Cohen > Yitzhak Rabin.


So now, let’s try and fit ‘Chaim Menachem Mendel Zeitlin / Gintzburg’, and his wife Bluma, back in this picture.

While the Alter Rebbe’s grandson ‘Baruch of Schick’ was busy joining the masons, trying to ‘enlighten’ his fellow Jews while hanging out with Joshua Zeitlin, and fathering the ancestor of Israeli PM Yitzhak Rabin….

The Alter Rebbe’s grand-daughter Bluma was also busy marrying a Zeitlin, fathering another ‘Zionist pioneer’ who apparently founded Petach Tikva, and who then went on to become the great-grandfather of Lord Rabbi Jonathan Sacks.

Or to put it another way, Yitzhak Rabin and Jonathan Sacks belong to the same family, and are both descendants of the Alter Rebbe.


But there’s more.

Here’s a snippet that appears under the profile for Frieda Schneuri, Alter Rebbe daughter No. 5 and ancestor of Yitzhak Rabin and Lord Rabbi Jonathan Sacks:

Frieda was the eldest daughter of the Alter Rebbe and a particular favourite who he taught personally much Chasidus. Her husband Rabbi Elijah was a secret Frankist.Her brother Moshe along with her sisters Brocha, Devorah Leah and Esther Miriam were influenced by the Catholic Frankists teachings.


Who is this mysterious ‘Rabbi Elijah’, husband of Frieda and apparently another secret Frankist?

The timing appears to bo too late to match the ‘Vilna Gaon’ (of course, assuming that the Vilna Gaon’s name was really ‘Elijah’, and not ‘Pinchas’, or something totally different…. That’s a post for another time.)

But there IS another ‘Elijah’ in the mix, who connects to the family of Aryeh Leib Frumkin, and who is also very ‘mysterious’ and deliberately distorted through the lens of made-up Jewish history, and that’s Elijah Ragoler.

Here’s the pertinent snippet from the Jewish Virtual Library:

Ragoler’s brother, SAMUEL KELMER, was also a renowned scholar who went to Ereẓ Israel in the closing years of his life. Samuel was the father of Aryeh Leib *Frumkin.


(BTW, British PM Boris Johnson is also descended from that same Elijah Ragoler. Just another little CO-IN-CID-ENCE.)


Aryeh Leib Frumkin conveniently wrote an ‘official biography’ of Elijah Ragoler, so all the dates are totally fudged.

But I think this profile on the My Heritage is giving us a more accurate view of when our particular Elijah Ragoler was alive:


This Elijah Ragoler was married to one Gita Pesseles – which takes us straight back into Vilna Gaon territory.

Here’s a more trustworthy version of the Vilna Gaon’s family tree, from Chaim Freedman’s ‘Eliyahu’s Branches’:

The Vilna Gaon is meant to have remarried one ‘Gittel Luntz of Kelm’ – notice the KELM connection to all this.

And Gita’s second husband was Shlomo Zalman of Volozhin, the brother of Reb Chaim of Volozhin.


Does that make ‘Frieda Shneuri’ ‘Gita Pesseles AKA Gittel Luntz of Kelm’?

I don’t know.

There’s still so very much to unpick.

But if Frieda’s husband ‘Rabbi Elijah’ was a secret Freemason-Frankist….


That kind of explains a least a little of what his children were up to.


The last point – that I keep kind of weaving around, as it’s not so easy to deal with – concerns Frieda’s other son, Aharon Zaslavski.

Aharon Zaslavski married Chaya, Rebbe Nachman’s daughter, as a second marriage, after Rebbe Nachman had died and was no longer there to ‘arrange’ a marriage with someone suitable.

There seems to be a lot of evidence to suggest that ‘Aharon Zaslavski’ was extremely problematic, from a spiritual perspective.

That ‘Frankist-Freemason’ vibe seems to have been in full swing in this part of the family tree.

This is already a long post, so I’m going to return to this subject soon, God willing.

But here are the takeaways, from this post:


  • Surprise surprise!!! The late Lord Rabbi Jonathan Sacks was ALSO a descendent of the Alter Rebbe, via his daughter Frieda, and ALSO a descendant of Joshua Zeitlin. (Who may yet turn out to be ‘alter egos’ of the same person….)
  • Yet another ‘big Zionist’ – Aryeh Leib Frumkin, founder of Petach Tikva – turns out to be related to the Alter Rebbe of Chabad and Joshua Zeitlin.
  • The Zeitlins used a lot of alternative surnames, including ‘Fundaminsky’ and Gintzburgh.
  • Moshe Zeitlin’ and ‘Moshe Schneuri’ overlap a great deal, and maybe the same person.


So, we cleaned up a little more of the confusion swirling around real Jewish history.

And we discovered that just like you need the right yichus to become PM of Israel, no Chief Rabbi of the British Commonwealth gets the job on merit alone.



You might also like this article:

The last week, a lot of new information has been coming out about the ‘elder abuse’ apparently being committed against Rav Chaim Kanievsky.


The Habayitah website and R’ Chananya Weissman’s Rumble channel have more of that story, and below I’m pasting some links to click through and read yourself.

Here’s a small snippet:


I witness that the Health Ministry Haredi Liaison Unit has issued press kits on Rav Kanievsky and his

family including press release, photo, and voice recording to outlets such as the one I worked for,

pushing the vaccine, and that we were instructed to redact any sign that the story was part of a public

relations campaign, but to make the article appear as a spontaneous news story, quoting the Rabbi’s

daughter as if her words were genuine, and not part of an orchestrated campaign.


And here’s the takeaway message:

Rav Chaim Kanievsky is 93 years old. He has effectively been in a state of cognitive decline for many years already and only recognises two members of his own family.

His house is full of cameras, his every move is controlled and ‘recorded’ by handlers – some of whom are directly working for the State of Israel – and all of these ‘statements’ about Covid 19 that we believed to be coming from Rav Chaim Kanievsky are in fact forgeries.


When this information came out, I got the following comment from Daisy, which I’m reproducing here:


I owe – actually we both owe – an enormous apology to Rav Kanievsky and his family. I badmouthed him, when it turns out he is ABSOLUTELY INNOCENT! TO badmouth a Tzaddik is such an aveirah, I am in tears. I have been sick nonstop for the past two weeks, so has my son and his family. Now I understand why.

Hashem, I am so sorry for every word I wrote that was negative about him. Please forgive me. I have to make a public apology, and to his family as well. Anything I said about him I am retracting right now. He is a Tzaddik, Gadol Hador or one of the Gedolei Hador – of course we have Rav Berland too, but he is also a Gadol for sure. My first instincts were correct.

What is going on with Rav Kanievsky is exactly what is going on with the Rav: it’s called ELDER ABUSE. They will do that to all the people who can stop their evil agendas. MONSTERS!


Here, I got this [linked to abve] from Rav Chananya Weissman – in case you didn’t see it yet: this deserves coming out of your break I believe, before Rosh Hashanah; for your sake, and for my sake.

May Hashem have mercy on both of us, and forgive me for this horrible sin I committed. I am not sure if you are in need of forgiveness too, but if you are, then of course may Hashem forgive you too.


I went back and checked what I wrote about Rav Chaim Kanievsky.

Honestly, I tread very carefully when I write these things, and honestly, I am NOT sorry for calling into question the ‘psakim’ put out in Rav Chaim Kanievsky’s name, nor am I sorry about simply stating the familial links between the wider Kanievsky family and the secular reshaim who created the false construct now known as the State of Israel.

That information was and is important to know, as we continue to figure out how our religious world has been hijacked by some very evil people, pretending to be the creme de la creme of orthodox Judaism.

But I am VERY HAPPY to make a public apology for suggesting that Rav Chaim Kanievsky knowingly put out these evil psakim.

Now that the information about Rav Kanievsky being in a state of severe cognitive decline is publically known, I apologise for believing the lashon hara that a true talmid chachim like Rav Chaim could ever have written these evil statements from a place of being compos mentis in a million years.

But now we have that information, I still have a lot more questions about what is really going on here.


At this stage, there are basically 4 categories of ‘rabbis’ and ‘rabbinic leaders’ who are publically pushing the Covid 19 ‘vaccinations’, and complying with all the ridiculous, unscientific, coronafascist diktats about when and how to pray etc.

Anyone who is using their rabbinical position to coerce others to get ‘vaccinated’ falls into one of the following categories:

  1. Spiritually corrupt fraudsters – Who range from ‘plain vanilla’ arrogant people with very bad middot all the way up to mamash, the totally spiritually-corrupt evil masterminds who are orchestrating much of the trainwreck that has become our Jewish community, from behind the scenes.
  2. Bribed – Bribes can include having the Misrad HaBriut pay for your massive chassidishe weddings; or being the recipient of ‘prizes’; or having mafiosos mamash funding your kollel, or school, or shul; or drawing a salary or payment in any form from the State or government; and also being ‘bribed’ by special recognition and honors, like honorary degrees etc.
  3. Threatened – That harm will befall them or their families; or that they will have their characters publically assassinated (like THIS); or that the State will arrest them on trumped up charges and then refuse to ever even bring the case to trial, unless they roll over and make a plea bargain, just so they can not spend the next 10 years in prison.
  4. Senile.


Baruch Hashem, we’ve done the birur for Rav Chaim Kanievsky now.

But what about the other members of his family? What about his daughter, Rebbetzin Leah Kolodetsky? What about his grandson, Yankie Kanievsky?

What category do they ‘fit’ in?

And what about other ‘big rabbis’ like R’ Gershon Edelstein, who you can see is still extremely sharp, despite his advanced age. What category does he fit in?

Are R’ Edelstein’s statements also being forged?


And what about these guys, all clearly reading from a script paid for by the local Health Service in Far Rockaway?

Here’s a screenshot of the opening credits, for those of us who maybe get a little nauseous when we have to watch too many pious hypocrites in such a small amount of time:


This from R’ Chananya Weissman:

Compare these two videos of [rabbis] from Baltimore and the Five Towns, which I have spliced together. Not only is it obvious that they are reading from a script, in many cases it is word for word the same script, only with different actors.

The Baltimore video is openly sponsored by the government.

While the Five Towns video was being filmed, a call was placed to Kolrom, which produced these videos, and they were asked where the funding was coming from. They were very uncomfortable, and while they acknowledged that people had a right to know, they refused to give any information about this and disconnected the call.

Notice that in the Five Towns video a plethora of Jewish front organizations are shown at the end, but this time no government involvement/sponsorship is openly indicated.


So, are these guys corrupt, bribed, threatened or senile?

(It’s possible to fit into more than one of these categories, but they definitely fit into AT LEAST one.)


While you are pondering that, let’s go back and see what other ‘pronouncements’ have come out of Rav Kanievsky’s Bnei Brak apartment in recent months.

Remember this, from February 2020, when the State of Israel imprisoned Rabbi Berland, just before setting off the whole Covid 19 plandemic?


Even at the time, I publically stated on the blog that this ‘recording’ was totally false and fake.

Anyone who has been honestly following what’s gone on with Rav Berland, and the corrupt State of Israel and the even more corrupt media would know that these guys lie and manipulate and forge and fake again and again and again.

So, if that recording was also faked – why wasn’t it called out by Rav Kanievsky’s family and ‘frum handlers’ at that point?

Let’s head over to the Yeshiva World News government propaganda site, to see what other ‘pronouncements’ have apparently been made in Rav Kanievsky’s name.


THIS is from March 2020.

Was this also faked?


What about THIS, from Hamodia, also in March 2020:

Harav Chaim Kanievsky, shlita and Harav Gershon Edelstein, shlita Decide to Keep Yeshivos Open


Or THIS, that was apparently put out by Rav Chaim’s household immediately after the murder in Meron:

After the Meron tragedy, Rav Kanevsky urges everyone to wash their hands more thoroughly, and women to behave more modestly.


If Rav Kanievsky has been in a profound state of cognitive decline for years already, then who was making these statements in his name?

And why weren’t the members of his household – or other people within the orthodox community who knew the true situation – publically warning the rest of us that these statements were not coming from Rav Chaim himself?

Here’s one possible explanation, for why Rav Chaim’s cognitive decline was hushed up for so many years.


THIS from June 16, 2020:

Unique Opportunity from HaGaon HaRav Chaim Kanievsky: Find your Zivug!


This year, as Rebbe Yonasan Ben Uziel’s Yartzheit approaches, HaGaon HaRav Chaim Kanievsky Shlita strengthened the powers associated with davening at Rebbi Yonasan Ben Uziel’s grave by blessing everyone that donates $180 to Yesomim and Almanos to be married at the end of this year.

HaGaon HaRav Chaim Kanievsky, along with other Gedolei HaDor, will also daven Tefilas HaShlah on the donors’ behalf on Erev Rosh Chodesh Sivan.

Additionally, HaGaon HaRav Chaim will send his sons-in-laws, Rav Yitzchok Kolodetsky and Rav Shraga Steinman to daven on behalf of the donors. Every single individual donor will merit personal tefilos from these Talmidei Chachamim.

Kupat Hair, also wanting to play their part in this unique opportunity, will be sending messengers to Amuka for 40 consecutive days in order to daven for all those who donated.


Hey, let’s take a closer look at the Kupat Hair website, that seems to be single-handedly keeping the YWN propaganda site going, with all its charidee campaigns with Rav Kanievsky.

Like this one, for Rosh Hashana 5782:


Really, go watch this video, it’s the best laugh I had all day.

But in the meantime, here’s a few screenshots:



Now, let’s see how the rabbis who are part and parcel of the Kupat Ha’ir organisation – who you remember is shamelessly trading off Rav Chaim Kanievsky’s name to make money – stack up on the ‘Covid 19 vaccine’.

You can see a list of Kupat Ha’ir’s ‘Rabbinic Board’ HERE.

I’m going to list the ones that have made a public statement, either way, on the Covid 19 shots.


Rav Chaim Kanievsky is listed first…. (Lots of ‘pro-vaccine’ lies disseminated in his name)

Belzer Rebbe…. (Told his followers to get vaccinated.)

R’ Gershon Edelstein…. (Apparently putting out statements like this: Rabbi Gershon Edelstein : ‘Old, Young, Pregnant Women Can Take Vaccine, There’s Nothing To Worry About’)

Biale Rebbe of Bnei Brak.… (Apparently telling his followers they are ‘tzaddikim’ for taking the Pfizer shot.)

Rav Boruch Mordechai Ezrachi….(Screenshot below comes from the Lakewood Scoop):


R’ Boruch Dov Povarsky.… (Publically endorses the Covid 19 ‘vaccine’)

R’ Shimon Badani…. (Apparently signed the flyer coercing frum parents to ‘vaccinate’ their teenagers in school)


R’ Chaim Meir Wosner.... (Apparently passed away from Covid, shortly after participating in one of the corrupt ‘Beis Dins’ that excommunicated Rav Berland and his community.)

Rav Yitzhok Silberstein.… (Issued ‘rulings’ that people in bidud (but who had no symptoms of Covid) were forbidden to pray with minyans and would be akin to ‘murderers’ if they went out.)

Rav David Abuchatzeira…(Also signed the infamous flyer, above, coercing parents to ‘vaccinate’ their children.)


There’s a few more names on that list, that either didn’t come up with anything, or with anything relevant either way to Covid 19 and ‘vaccines’.

But I think you are seeing the huge amount of ‘overlap’ with Kupat Ha’ir’s ‘rabbinical board’ and a lot of the rabbis here in Israel, who have been pressuring their followers to get the shots – and have been working hand in hand with the State of Israel and the Misrad HaBriut from the beginning, to institute lockdowns, break up minyans, and generally destroy the world of Torah and mitzvahs, and people’s mental health, anyway they can.

What in the world.


So yes, a sincere, heartfelt apology to Rav Chaim Kanievsky, who has had his name used and abused to issue myriads of fake ‘rulings’ – and also to soak the gullible frum public out of probably millions of shekels with promises of yeshuots and brachot that he never signed up to.

And at the same time, a question for the other rabbis and members of his household that are not in a state of cognitive decline, and could have blown the whistle on what was happening around Rav Chaim a long time ago:

Which group are you in?

  • Spiritually corrupt
  • Bribed
  • Threatened


Very, very soon, we’ll all find out.



Fresh from the YWN propaganda site, we have this:



In addition, for all who answer his call, Rashkebeha”g will entreat on their behalf:

1) On Leil Rosh Hashanah, at the time when the simanim are before him

At this lofty time, Maran Sar HaTorah Harav Chaim Kanievsky, shlit”a, will lift the box containing the names of those who have contributed to Kupat Ha’ir and say, with intense concentration, “Yehi ratzon milifnei Avinu shebaShamayim that all contributors to Kupat Ha’ir whose names are written here merit a good and sweet year!”

2) Every day of the Aseres Yemai Teshuvah  (including Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur!) 

After he recites the entire sefer Tehillim, Maran Sar HaTorah Harav Chaim Kanievsky, shlit”a, will recite a special nusach in the middle of the Yehi Ratzon “And inscribe and seal a good and sweet year for all the names of contributors to Kupat Ha’ir who have contributed NIS 384 ($120.00) – that are found here.



Again, who is writing this stuff?

(Or as the late Barry Chamish used to say, cui bono?)

Does Rav Chaim Kanievsky even know this stuff is being put out in his name?

Are we really to believe that a 93 year old person with a high level of cognitive impairment is really writing these long letters for Kupat HaIr, still reciting the whole book of tehillim every single day, and saying this:

“And inscribe and seal a good and sweet year for all the names of contributors to Kupat Ha’ir who have contributed NIS 384 ($120.00) – that are found here.

In the middle of his High Holy days davening?!?


Here’s another one, this time for Vaad HaRabonim:



All those who donate to this fund will merit to see great salvation with whatever they need, and they and their family will be saved measure for measure from all illnesses midah kineged midah and they will merit to make simchos in their homes and to see nachas from all their descendants with health and parnassah.

Rav Chaim Kanievsky shlita
The Vizhnitzer Rebbe shlita



Rav Chaim Kanievsky explicitly said this?

And then explicitly signed on this letter, saying this?



Enough, already, this is a disgrace on so many levels.

And I feel kind of ill, pondering just how many people who should know better, and who have positions at the very top of the orthodox Jewish tree, have been either actively aiding and abetting this massive fraud on the public for years, or turning a blind eye to it.

As usual, it falls to ‘we, the people’ to stop participating in this, and that is the only way it will really stop.

If you really want a worthwhile place to give your tzedaka this year, go HERE and take your pick, or go HERE and do a pidyon with Shuvu Banim, as per the Breslov tradition to do a pidyon nefesh just before Rosh Hashana.

And may God rescue us from this olam hasheker very soon.

This morning, reader Nechama sent a link to this story on the Jpost ‘news’ site:

Only those vaccinated with the third dose of the coronavirus vaccine, those who have recovered from the virus and those who were recently tested should be allowed to attend High Holy Day services in synagogues, the World Organization of Orthodox Communities and Synagogues recommended on Tuesday, as the Delta variant continued to spread in Israel and around the world.


That’s strange, I thought to myself.

Why aren’t they quoting a specific person, a specific rabbi, a specific representative for this ‘World Organization of Orthodox Communities and Synagogue?

Surely, they can’t just be making this stuff up out of thin air, to fool the observant public into thinking ‘all rabbis’ agree with this stance….


So, I plugged World Organization of Orthodox Communities and Synagogues into my search engine, to see what else I can find.

The first thing I noticed is that it doesn’t have it’s own website. 

Which is kinda strange, don’t you think, in 2021?

Second thing I noticed is just how ‘on target’ this organisation is with the State of Israel’s propaganda around Covid 19. Here’s a few more articles quoting the organisation – generally, with no identifiable names or details – from the Arutz 7 ‘news’ site:

World Synagogue Organization: ‘Open synagogues with Green Passport plan’

World Synagogue Organization: ‘Better to pray outside during High Holidays’

Synagogue organization: ‘Don’t forget the children’
World Synagogue Organization calls for continued outdoor prayers, suggests giving under-16s key roles in leading outdoor prayer sessions.



So, WHO ARE this World Organization of Orthodox Communities and Synagogues?

That’s what I wanted to know, because we’re discovering more and more that until we’ve pinned down who is funding these organisations, and who they are really linked to, we have no idea how to judge the quality of the information and ‘opinion’ coming out of them.

It’s proving really hard to find anything about them online, outside of their anonymous quotes on propaganda sites, when eventually, this turns up in the search results:


I click around, see that it does seem to be ‘a thing’ – i.e. not totally bogus from start to finish – and see that it shares the same address in Jerusalem as the World Bnei Akiva organisation, and it’s parent organisation, World Mizrachi.

Here’s a snippet about Mizrachi, from their website:

Mizrachi inspires people with a sense of commitment to the Torah, the Jewish people and the Land of Israel.

Mizrachi is the global Religious Zionist movement, spreading Torat Eretz Yisrael across the world and strengthening the bond between the international Jewish community and the State of Israel.

Based in Jerusalem and with branches across the globe, Mizrachi – an acronym for merkaz ruchani (spiritual center) – was founded in 1902 by Rabbi Yitzchak Yaakov Reines, and is led today by Rabbi Doron Perez.


R’ Yitzhak Yaakov Reines has been on my interesting people list for a while.

He’s also apparently a descendent of that same Rivlin family that stitched up nearly every other aspect of ‘governing the Holy Land’ between themselves, some 200 years ago.

And of course, like everyone else in the State of Israel’s hierarchy, he studied at the Volozhin yeshiva.

The Mizrachi organisation itself is very closely associated with, and funded by, the State of Israel and the Jewish Agency.

I.e., it’s another State-sponsored Trojan Horse in the midst of the orthodox community.


But let’s get back to the World Organization of Orthodox Communities and Synagogues (WOOCS), that shares the same address.

After clicking around a lot, I finally get to some prayer that WOOCS is meant to have written, published on a Canadian Jewish news site.

Clicking on that prayer gets me to the WOOCS official website, HERE.


There, I learn that the ‘World Organization of Orthodox Communities and Synagogues’ represents a grand total of 23 shuls and communities – nearly all in and around Jerusalem.

Like this one:

Central Synagogue-Beit Hakerem Jerusalem

“Among the members of the [synagogue’s] council were many non-kippah-wearing public figures, among them: Uzi Baram, the former minister, Ehud Olmert, the Prime Minister, the journalist Dan Margalit and others.”

And this one:

Nahalat Yaakov Synagogue, Jerusalem

“It’s first founders included: Yoel Moshe Salomon, R. Yosef Rivlin and Aryeh Leib Hurwitz, who made sure to pray in the Ashkenaz formulation of the students of the GRA, Rabbi Eliyahu HaGaon from Vilna.”

And this one:

The Zemach Zedek Synagogue, Old City Jerusalem

“The”Zemach Zedek” synagogue named after the third Rebbe of the Lubavitch dynasty Chabad Hasidim founded in 1879 on the initiative of Rabbi Shneur Zalman, who raised the donation from Señor David Sassoon from Bombay City, India.”

(Shneur Zalman, the Alter Rebbe, died in 1812, so not quite sure who is meant to have raised that money from David Sassoon…. another rabbit hole to explore.)


Point is – all of these 23 synagogues seem strangely connected directly into the heart of the ‘Zionist enterprise’ in the State of Israel.

But here, finally, we get the name of the ‘Chairman’ of this vast enterprise called the World Organization of Orthodox Communities and Synagogues – he’s some guy called David Ben Naeh.

Here he is in Hebrew, on the website, opining that opening synagogues in the middle of Corona is ‘dangerous’.

Here’s what we learn, about David Ben Naeh’s credentials, to speak on behalf of the WORLD ORGANIZATION of (23…) Orthodox Communities and Synagogues (nearly all in Jerusalem).

“Later, a member of the World Zionist Organization approached me and offered to join them,” David recalled.

“Later I was the executive director of the Diaspora Spiritual Services Department.

After that I was Director General of the Department of Education and Culture in Exile. And so we also established the World Organization of Synagogues and Orthodox Communities“.


In other words, WOOCS is yet another ‘cut out’ for the State of Israel.

Colour me shocked.

Now that you know this, are you starting to see how much the State of Israel and the media thinks we’re retarded?

They think they can get any old government shill, create a ‘World Organisation’ out of thin air, and then tell that shill exactly what to say in the press – and we’ll all just sit here and lap it up.

I mean, if the World Organization of Synagogues and Orthodox Communities says we all need to pray outside and get barred from shul on Rosh Hashana unless we have 3 (!) vaccinations, we better take that seriously, right?



Dear readers, we are currently fighting a huge war against Amalek, and the media is the front line.

Don’t believe a word of what you’re reading anywhere – even here, on my blog – until you have checked it out carefully yourself.

Your body, and your soul, depend upon it.

Really, you could call this ‘A Bribe Blinds The Eyes of the Wise 2’ – the Rabbinic Edition.

***Updates Below***

A couple of weeks ago, in part 1, I took a look at some of the bribes Big Pharma has been paying the medical profession, to get them happily chirping along about needing to take ‘vaccines’, and to help in creating ‘3rd waves’ and ‘Delta variants’ and I don’t know what else.

There, we touched briefly on the fact that many leading rabbis apparently took hundreds of thousands of shekels to ‘promote’ vaccines to their followers, and in their schools and communities.


Then, one of my readers sent me this cutting from the Jewish Press, pretending to be a halachic discussion of why everyone absolutely must be forced and coerced to take an experimental gene therapy against their will:


And then, I decided to do more of a search, to see exactly who these poskim really are, who are putting out all these psakei din that are so very thin on real halacha and verified info, and so very thick on Big Pharma propaganda.

Let us begin.

EXHIBIT 1: What do Poskim say about the Covid 19 Vaccine?

This is from the Jewish Press, dated December 24, 2020, snippet below:

Rav Hershel Schachter, shlita, and Rav Mordechai Willig, shlita – with the support of Rav Dovid Cohen, shlita – have said the following in a combined Orthodox Union/Rabbinical Council of America statement:

“Pursuant to the advice of your personal health care provider, the Torah obligation to preserve our lives and the lives of others requires us to vaccinate for COVID-19 as soon as a vaccine becomes available” (emphasis added).

Rav Asher Weiss, shlita – in a detailed teshuvah available in Hebrew, as well as in an on-line English shiur – stated that he strongly recommends taking the vaccine.

Rav Chaim Kanievsky, shlita; Rav Gershon Edelstein, shlita; and Rav Shalom Cohen, shlita – three of the most prominent Israeli chareidi rabbanim – have all stated that anyone who can get the vaccine should take it. (Rav Chaim, shlita, can be seen saying this on video.)


Let’s run some ‘conflict of interest’ scores, shall we?

Let’s start with Rav Asher Weiss.

The rodefshalom613 website did an excellent job of breaking down the flaws in his psak halacha, such as it was.

But here’s the bit you really need to pay attention to:

Rav Weiss is the rav of Shaarei Tzedek Hospital in Jerusalem which advocates for vaccines.

Rav Weiss’s Kollel is supported by Rabbi Dovid Fuld and through that Rav Weiss. Rabbi Fuld is so radical when it comes to vaccines that he takes the extreme and dangerous view that parents who don’t vaccinate their children should have their children taken away.


Financial conflict of interest score for R’ Asher Weiss: 10/10


We’ve already covered off Rav Chaim Kanievsky HERE and HERE; we touched on Rav Gershon Edelstein HERE.

I’m sure there is more digging and more information to find on the above named too – including members of their households and the institutions being run in their names – but for now, let’s take a look at another set of the people quoted as the poskim pushing vaccines, in that Jewish Press article.

And also, let’s take a look at the guy who authored that article, one Rabbi Dr. Aaron E. Glatt.

In fact, let’s start with him.


HERE is his bio:

Rabbi Aaron E. Glatt, MD, FACP, FIDSA, FSHEA, is chairman of the Department of Medicine and hospital epidemiologist at South Nassau Communities Hospital and clinical professor of medicine at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. He is also the associate rabbi of the Young Israel of Woodmere.


And here’s just a small selection of some of the articles and pieces Rabbi Doctor Glatt has been blanketing the frum Jewish world, over the last few months, to push Covid 19 restrictions and vaccines:

From April 6, 2020, website:


From March 2020, on the Hamodia website, pushing social distancing, masks, zero prayers in a minyan and total lockdown:

‘We Are at a Tipping Point’: An Interview with Rabbi Dr. Aaron E. Glatt


From April 2020, The Lakewood Scoop, giving over a ‘psak din’ that of course all this lockdown-mask-forbidding minyans stuff is pikuach nefesh:

Crucial video and letter from Rabbi Dr Aharon Glatt


There’s literally pages and pages of all his interviews and articles.

He’s been really, really busy, bless him!

Now, let’s see what his financial connections are, to Big Pharma and the corrupt government institutions that have been pushing the Covid 19 plandemic.


Let’s start with the Icahn Medical school, where Dr Aaron Glatt is [apparently – read on] a clinical professor of medicine.

On the Icahn website, we learn this:

Our NIH funding is among the highest nationwide.

NIH is of course Antony Fauci, and in case you forgot why that might be a ‘conflict of interest’ with Covid 19, let me jog your memory:

Fauci admits NIH funding of Wuhan lab denies gain of function


If you go to the TorahCafe webiste HERE, you learn more about Dr Aaron Glatt’s many different jobs.

Here’s some highlights:

Rabbi Dr. Aaron Glatt studied and earned his BA at YU, and received Rabbinic ordination from Rabbi Avraham Tzvi Wosner at Machon LeTorah Vehora’ah….

He is currently the executive vice president and chief administrative officer at Mercy Medical Center in Rockville Center Long Island. Previously, he was President & CEO of St. Joseph Hospital in Bethpage, NY, and a full Professor of Infectious Diseases and former Associate Dean at NY Medical College.

Prior to that, he served as Chair of Medicine at Our Lady of Mercy Medical Center in the Bronx, and Chief of Infectious Diseases at St. Vincent Catholic Medical Centers in Brooklyn and Queens.

…. He served on editorial boards of major publications and on many government, hospital, medical school and public health committees. He is a spokesperson for the Infectious Disease Society of America.



Now that’s impressive.

But I have to admit to being somewhat puzzled by the fact that the jobs he mentions in his Jewish Press bio, above, are totally different from the ones being mentioned here, in his Torah Cafe bio….

You can see his LinkedIn page HERE.

Maybe my eyes aren’t working so good, but I can’t see any trace of that medical professorship at the Icahn Medical School.

(Screenshot below)


Of course, I must have just missed it.

Hevrey, do me a favor and please help me to rustle that information up, because God forbid I should be questioning the integrity of someone as kosher as Dr Glatt.

In the meantime, let’s move on to THIS apparently undated article from the Jewish Voice, entitled:

Dr. Aaron E. Glatt Named Recipient of Prestigious NY American College of Physicians Laureate Award

Which is where we learn the following:

[Dr Aaron Glatt] was also appointed by Nassau Country Executive Laura Curran as a liaison to the Orthodox community for public health and infectious disease matters.


In other words, he is being paid by the US government specifically to ‘persuade’ the orthodox Jewish community to take the Covid 19 shots.

Financial conflict of interest score for R’ Dr Aaron Glatt: 10/10


Ok, now finally we can take a look at some of those other poskim being quoted by the illustrious Dr Maybe-Not-So-Glatt .

Specifically, these three:

Rav Hershel Schachter, shlita,

Rav Mordechai Willig, shlita 

Rav Dovid Cohen, shlita


R’ Hershel Shacter has an interesting family tree, tracing all the way back to Moshe ‘HaSeraph’ Spravadlivi, and you can see a bit of it yourself HERE.

We’ll come back to this another time, as I think I just tripped over another bit of that hidden Real Jewish History, but it’s going to take a bit of unpicking to figure out WHAT exactly is going on there.

But really, I’m looking for financial links that would suggest an undeniable conflict of interest.

Look what turns up, from an article back in 2004, entitled:

RIETS To Pay Tribute to Four Distinguished Roshei Kollel at May 5 Dinner in NYC

Snippet below:

The event… will begin with Torah presentations at 5 p.m. by the roshei kollel: Rabbi J. David Bleich, Rabbi Michael Rosensweig, Rabbi Hershel Schachter, and Rabbi Mordechai I. Willig….

Rabbi Bleich is rosh kollel of the Rabbi Norman Lamm Kollel Le’Hora’ah and the Ludwig Jesselson Kollel Chaverim and holds the Herbert and Florence Tenzer Chair in Jewish Law and Ethics at RIETS.

Rabbi Rosensweig is rosh kollel of the Israel Henry Beren Institute for Higher Talmudic Studies and holds the Nathan and Perel Schupf Chair in Talmud.

Rabbi Schachter is rosh kollel of the Adina and Marcos D. Katz Kollel and holds the Nathan and Vivian Fink Distinguished Professorial Chair in Talmud at RIETS.

Rabbi Willig is rosh kollel of the Bella and Harry Wexner Kollel Elyon and holds the Rabbi Sol Roth Chair in Talmud and Contemporary Halakhah at RIETS.


In a minute, we’ll get to the connection with Les Wexner.

(I’m sure those with sharp eyes have already spotted it.)

But before we do, let’s take a closer look at the Adina and Marcos D Katz Foundation, who fund Rabbi Shacter’s kollel.

Because there, we notice some interesting connections.

Take a look at some of the people and places who have been awarded the ‘Katz Prize’ in recent years. 

I can’t tell you how much that prize is worth, nor what people have to do to get it.

And let me also point out that I’m using this as an example of how our ‘leaders’ are being totally corrupted behind the scenes by ‘prizes’ and freebies and honors that you and me don’t even know anything about.

I don’t know what the Katz Foundation really stands for, what it’s really pushing, nor who is really behind it.

(You can see the Katzs rubbing shoulders with all sorts of Israeli politicians and ‘leaders’ below’.)

And that’s really a problem.


Recipients from 2021:

(No information is given about what any of these people did to get this prize.)

Rabbi Gabriel Goldman – the Rabbi of Kfar Adumim. No information is given about what he did to get this prize.

Rabbi Yitzchak Shilat – Co-founded and serves as a senior faculty member at Yeshivat Birkat Moshe, the Hesder yeshiva of Maale Adumim.

Prof. Shulamit Levanberg – She’s a professor of Biomedical Engineering, at the Haifa Technion. Here’s here research interests:



Levanberg set up a new start-up to produce fake printed meat, called AlephFarms.

Marc Buckley, a ‘World Economic Forum’ Expert Advisor sits on their board – and his website is basically one big smorgasbord of New World Order / Great Economic Reset propaganda and projects.



Tzurbah M’Rabbanan – This is the Talmud Program of the Torah Academy of Bergen County.

And here’s a creepy video they put out last year as part of a VERY thorough ‘Covid 19′ response:

(Note the many references to working closely with the US Ministry of Health.)


And that’s just for 2021.

Here’s some interesting names from previous years, and then let’s get to Bella and Harry Wexner’s connection to Mordechai Willig.

2019’s winners include:

R’ Eliezer Melamed – Controversial rabbi of Har Bracha and founder and ‘spiritual guide’ of Arutz 7 news site.

R’ Alfonso Pedazur Arbib – Chief Rabbi of Milan, epicentre of Italy’s ‘Covid 19’ outbreak.

R’ Dr Ratzon Aruzi – Chief Rabbi of Kiryat Ono.


2018’s winners include:

Rabbi Asher Zelig Weiss – the same guy we spoke about above, who gave the psak that people HAVE to vaccinate.

Rabbi Yosef Tzvi Rimon – Just elected Gush Etzion’s Chief Rabbi.


2017’s winners include:

R’ Shlomo Dichovski – Judge in the ‘Beit Din HaGadol’ of Jerusalem.

Rabbi Dr‭. ‬Mordechai Halperin – this is another very interesting individual that I’ve never heard of, but really should have.

Snippet from Wikipedia:

Mordechai Halperin is an Israeli rabbi, physician and scientist.

He is chief officer of medical ethics for the Israeli Ministry of Health and director of the Falk Schlesinger Institute for Medical-Halachic Research in Jerusalem.

Halperin is also a member of the Bioethics Advisory Committee of the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities.


So, we have to ask the obvious question:

Where on earth has this guy been, the last year and a half, in this whole ‘forced vax’ saga?!

I can’t find a single article or post quoting him about what’s going on around Covid 19 in Israel.

Isn’t that remarkable?

This is the Chief Officer for Medical Ethics for the Israeli Ministry of Health – and I can’t find even one public statement from him, about Covid 19?


So again, how much are all these prizes worth, what are people being asked to do, to get them, and why isn’t there public accountability for how our ‘leaders’ are being influenced by all these ‘prizes’ (which can also be spelt B-R-I-B-E-S).

Other winners of this prize include the Puah Institute (2015); R’ Isaac Michel Guggenheim, the Chief Rabbi of Paris (2015); the late R’ Lord Dr Jonathan Sacks (2014) – and last but not least, our very own R’ Hershel Shacter (2014), of RIET fame.


BTW, it’s also interesting to see who is making all these ‘decisions’.

2014’s prizes were decided by R’ Israel Meir Lau; Professor Menachem Ben-Sasson and R’ Adin Steinsaltz.

By 2019, it was Prof Menachem Ben-Sasson, joined by R’ Shlomo Dichovski, R’ Aryeh Stern and R’ Haim Sabato.

Always the same names, always the same people.

It’s a very cosy club.


OK, let’s finish this up by taking a quick look at who is paying for the kollel of R’ Mordechai Willig.

“Rabbi Willig is rosh kollel of the Bella and Harry Wexner Kollel Elyon.”

Bella and Harry Wexner have a very famous son.

His name is Les Wexner.

This from Wikipedia:

Wexner had a close relationship with Jeffrey Epstein that began in the 1980s and continued until at least 2007.

He was the primary billionaire client of Epstein, a financier that claimed to only work with clients with a net worth of one billion USD or greater. Epstein became Wexner’s financial manager in 1987.

Wexner purchased the New York property, the Herbert N. Straus House, in 1989 and later transferred it to Epstein in the mid-1990s following his marriage to Abigail. In July 1991, Wexner granted Epstein power of attorney and also instated him as a trustee on the board of the Wexner Foundation.


It’s at least possible that pedophile, child-trafficking Epstein was the one who made the decision to fund Mordechai Willig’s kollel at RIETS.

Doesn’t that make you want to throw up?

And also remember, we have in no way bottomed out the whole relationship between ‘science funding’ Epstein and this whole dystopian, graphene nanobot, gene editing disaster we are currently experiencing.

But he’s definitely connected somehow, as this recent New York Times headline makes clear:

Bill Gates met with Jeffrey Epstein many times, despite his past.


Enough for today.

You want to know what you can do about all this (apart from pray)?

Start publically questioning these people on their sources of funding, and their prizes.

Start writing formal letters to them, and their organisations, and to the ‘frum media’ outlets, demanding to be told what money they are receiving, in what format, from who.

And then sit back and watch the panicked stampede begin.

They got away with all this for so long because we let them.

We didn’t do our due diligence, we didn’t ask questions, we put ‘being polite’ over being informed.

But no more!

A blind bribes the eyes of the wise.

And as I keep showing you, it’s hard to find a single ‘pro-Covid shots’ person out there who cannot be shown to have massive vested interests, usually financial, within 5 seconds of checking them out.



Reader C. just sent me this:

It seems Marcos D Katz was an Israeli arms dealer. Take a look:

Man, was he ever.

This guy seems to have been bang, slap in the middle of the Iran-Contra scandal, amongst other things.

Here’s a screenshot snippet from that first JStor article:


So, it turns out that ‘Mexican’ Marcos D. Katz – from Cracow – ends up being a fundamental part of ‘the network’ that runs the State of Israel.

His family links have all been ‘privated’ on geni – like wall to wall hidden – but ‘Katz’ is one of those names that just keeps coming up again and again and again, so I suspect that this ‘Katz’ from Cracow is one of our Frankist-Freemason connections.

It’s the little things that give it away, like the fact he was secretly dealing in arms for Israel in Latin America, and then paying off a whole bunch of people to subvert the orthodox Jewish community from within via his fake foundation.

BTW, I’m trying to find some concrete details of the Katz foundation, like public filings, accounts, something.

So far nothing has turned up.

I.e. this foundation just doesn’t exist in the ‘real world’.

Which would make sense, if it was just a ‘cut out’ for the Frankist-Freemason State of Israel, to pay off our ‘rabbis’.




I found Marcos D Katz real family tree, from HERE – the RIETS obit for his late father, Ephraim Aryeh Leibesh.

He’s originally a Dorf, and HERE is his immediate family tree.

Tarnopol is home to a lot of Hellers and Krochmals, amongst others – the usual interesting people.

The Kenner family tree is also mostly ‘privated’ for as far as the eye can see, so it’s hard to know how they all connect to the Frankist-Freemason nexus.

But I’m sure they do connect.

And at some point, all these secret connections will all come out.



Dorfs are connected to the Lipshutz and Prager families.

At least one of these names is known to belong to an historically Frankist family – Prager is a corruption of Porges.

Something tells me I should take a closer look at RIETS.

And a few other of the places being funded by the non-existent ‘Katz Foundation’.

Ah, there is no end of turning over stones, and finding the ucky creatures that lurk beneath.

But at least it’s giving us a clearer picture of what’s really going on here.

Something is pushing me to get this info up ASAP, I’m not even sure why anymore, to be honest.

Over Shabbat, I read a book called ‘New Heavens and a New Earth: The Jewish Reception of Copernican Thought’ by Jeremy Brown.

(Click the link to download the PDF for free if you’re interested. I actually paid a fortune to get the book from Amazon, but there you go.)

It was very interesting reading.


Here’s the main takeaways of what I learnt:

  1. There are very close connections between many of the ‘interesting’ people in recent Jewish history, and the tendency to accept Copernicus’ mathematical theory of a heliocentric cosmology, and spherical, spinning earth.
  2. Prague and Cracow were key places where a lot of these interesting people were hanging out.
  3. The Karaites were particularly enthusiastic, to welcome the idea of a ‘heliocentric’ model,  as opposed to the geocentric model described in the Torah and then expanded upon in the Gemara.
  4. Copernicus’ ideas became the main basis for flagellating orthodox Judaism as being archaic, backwards and out of touch.
  5. Heliocentrism was the main bulwark that was ultimately used to ‘break up’ respect of religion generally, and especially, to denigrate the bible / Torah as the living word of God, in both the Jewish and xtian worlds.


That’s the general overview.

Now, down to some specifics.

Firstly, about the Magen David symbol.

We covered the main problems with it extensively in THIS post, but here’s a couple of the key takeaways:

  • Sabbatians were the first people to popularise the Star of David symbol, and it appeared on the graves of yucky people who were into kabbalistic black magic, like the Bad Baal Shem of London.
  • The Freemasons also used that symbol:

  • A red Star of David in a circle was the ‘seal’ of another secret society called the Martinists:

“Martinism is a form of Christian mysticism and esoteric Christianity concerned with the fall of the first man, his state of material privation from his divine source, and the process of his return, called ‘Reintegration’ or illumination.

As a mystical tradition, it was first transmitted through a masonic high-degree system established around 1740 in France by Martinez de Pasqually, and later propagated in different forms by his two students Louis Claude de Saint-Martin and Jean-Baptiste Willermoz.”


In Jeremy Brown’s book, he identifies the first time the ‘Star of David’ showed up in the Jewish community.

It was on the tombstone of one David Gans, buried in the cemetery of Prague, who wrote a treatise called Magen David:

Magen David was the name of a textbook on science and astronomy that Gans wrote, the very first Hebrew book to mention Copernicus by name.”

(Page 43, in ‘New Heavens and a New Earth’.)


Here’s a bit more background about Gans, from Wikipedia:

David was born in Lippstadt, in what is now North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. His father, Shlomo, was a moneylender. He studied rabbinical literature in Bonn and Frankfurt am Main, then in Kraków under Moses Isserles.

Later he attended the lectures of the Maharal of Prague and of his brother, Rabbi Sinai. They introduced philosophy, mathematics, and astronomy into the circle of their studies, and from them Gans received the impulse to devote himself to these branches of science.

He lived for a time in Nordheim (where he studied Euclid), passed several years in his native city of Lippstadt, and then in about 1564 settled in Prague.

There he came into contact with Kepler and Tycho Brahe, and took part for three consecutive days in astronomical observations at the Prague observatory. He was charged with the translation of the Alfonsine Tables from Hebrew into German by Tycho Brahe.


So, Gans fits the bill of ‘moneylenders’ with royal connections, who are pushing ‘science’ and kind of dissing the Torah.

But what really took my eye was his teachers. More snippets from the book:

“Cracow…contained the yeshiva of Rabbi Moses Isserles (d.1572), who was a leading scholar and the founding father of rabbinic astronomy in Poland…

Isserles wrote a commentary on the Hebrew translation of Georg Peuerbach’s New Theories of Planets…published in 1473. He also wrote a more esoteric work of astronomy entitled Torat Ha’Olah, in which he demonstrated how the Temple in Jerusalem symbolized a wide range of astronomical phenomena…

Isserles emphasised the harmony of Gentile astronomy with that of the Talmud. Where it was not possible to reconcile conflicting theories, Isserles wrote that the talmudic opinions were the correct ones….”


This is the first I ever heard of the REMA being so into astronomy, and particularly gentile astronomy.

If you remember from THIS post, the REMA’s father-in-law was one R’ Shalom Shachne Shorr, the disgraced Chief Rabbi of Lvov / Lemberg, who sounded to me like he had some pronounced Karaite tendencies, in how he was interpreting the Torah.

We also covered a Karaite-Schor family intermarriage, like this:

If you go HERE – it’s a site run by a Karaite historian with a chip on his shoulder about ‘Rabbiners’ – you’ll find the amazing story of a ‘Rabbiner-Karaite’ intermarriage.

The Karaite historian explains that the ‘Kahana’ family were prominent Karaites….

And one Yaakov Kahana ‘intermarried’ with one Rivka Reisa Schorr, back at the end of the 16th century.


Rivka Reisa Schorr was the REMA’s niece, via his wife.

If you go HERE, you’ll find the Jewish Encyclopaedia’s entry for Lemberg / Lvov – where Shalom Shachne was Chief Rabbi.

Screenshot below, snippet after that.


“Lemberg is well provided with Jewish institutions.

The first synagogue was built by the Karaites in 1582….Title to the old Jewish cemetery was granted by the city authorities in 1414…This cemetery is surrounded by a stone wall, with Karaite graves close to the wall.”


So, the Karaites were a serious force to be reckoned with in Lemberg / Lvov.

They built the first synagogue there – in the generation just after the REMA died, and his father-in-law was the city’s chief rabbi.

They were descended from those infamous ‘Khazars’, that we all keep hearing about on the anti-semitic websites… and we also learned that Karaites were buried next to the wall, in Jewish cemeteries.

Let’s return to Jeremy Brown, for the next bit of the puzzle.


After Crakow, David Gans goes to Prague.

There, he studies with the Maharal of Prague and his brother Sinai. And he also becomes particularly close to Ephraim Luntshitz (d. 1619 – the Kli Yakar) and Yom Tov Lippman Heller (d. 1654). According to Brown (page 47):

“[B]oth these leading rabbinic figures wrote approbations for Gans’s work on astronomy [i.e. the Magen David]….Lipmann also wrote a work on astronomy, Derush Hiddush HaLevanah.”


I’ve been circling around Rabbi Gershon Shaul Yom-Tov Lipmann ben Nathan ha-Levi Heller (c. 1579 – 19 August 1654) for months and months.

There is something very, very strange going on with his genealogy, and trying to pin him and his descendants down has proven to be unexpectedly very difficult.

Let’s see if we can start to understand why that is.

You can read a bio of him HERE, at WIKI2 republished.

Here’s some pertinent details:

  • He was born in Wallerstein, Bavaria.
  • He attended the yeshivas of R’ Jacob Gunzburg in Friedburg and the Maharal of Prague, in Prague.
  • Between 1627 – 1629, he was Chief Rabbi of Prague.
  • His tenure as Chief Rabbi came to abrupt end when he was thrown in the clink, and a massive fine had to be paid to free him.

“Rabbi Heller was associated with the wealthy leader of the Prague community at that time, Jacob Bassevi. He was an ally of the great general Albrecht von Wallenstein, who also had enemies at the Habsburg court. Heller’s relationship with Bassevi and Heller’s arrest played a part in larger political machinations there.”

  • He ended up as the Chief Rabbi of Cracow, where he died in 1654.
  • There are a lot of strange ‘stories’ told about him.


Let’s start with that strange incident of him being arrested in Prague.

So much of what was really going on in Prague around this time has been totally and deliberately obscured from view.

According to Allen E Goldenthal – that Karaite historian who also has a very warped view of ‘history’ – there was something of a turf war going on between the Karaite Jews in Prague, the Maharal of Prague, and the xtian community.

In his re-telling of history, the Golem was actually unleashed to terrorise the wider community for less than holy motives, and King Rudolph II called in the Karaites to try and help him solve the problem, and to contain the ‘kabbalists’ who were causing it.

Do I believe this whole story?

I think I don’t.

Do I believe there were a lot of unsavory machinations going on, in a million different ways, in the Prague Jewish community?

Sadly, yes.


(BTW, it’s interesting to note that the self-identified leading Karaite Allen E Goldenthal states this in his bio on Amazon:

Now residing in China where his expertise in biotechnology and quality systems was recruited, he assists in the development of therapeutics and immunotherapies for the treatment of cancer.”

I’m sure that’s just a CO-INC-ID-ENCE.


Point is, when you seek out the opinions from the ‘other side of the argument’, you start to get a much fuller picture of what really happened.

Here’s a snippet about Jacob Bassevi of Prague:

Jacob Batsheba Bassevi von Treuenberg (born Schmieles; 1570, Verona – 2 May 1634, Mladá Boleslav, Bohemia) was a Bohemian Court Jew and financier.

Bassevi, sometimes also written Baschevi, was a son of Avraham Basch who originated from Italy.

Early in his life he specialized in trading with silver which was the main component of the coins and currencies at his time. He ultimately became very wealthy, and stood in high favor with the emperors Rudolph II, Matthias, and Ferdinand II, to whom he frequently rendered financial assistance, particularly to Ferdinand, who needed large sums of money for the prosecution of the Thirty Years’ War (1618–1648)…

Bassevi was a warm friend of Rabbi Lipmann Heller, and befriended him during the latter’s arrest (5 July 1629) and dismissal from office (14 August 1629); contributing from his own funds one-fifth of the fine of 12,000 imposed upon Heller.

Bassevi was very charitable, and gave large sums for the support of the poor of Palestine.

On account of some trouble, the nature of which is not known, Bassevi in 1631 removed from Prague to Jičín, where he lived for a year.


Notice: rich court Jews and Chief Rabbis always go together.

Also notice, that weird statement about Bassevi giving lots of money to ‘the poor of Palestine’ – this was 70-80 years before the Sabbatians geared up to start moving to the Holy Land, and more than 150 years before the Chassidic aliya.

So who exactly was Bassevi giving the money to, at this time?

Also notice that Bassevi gets banished in mysterious circumstances – which happens again and again and again in these stories.


But let’s return to the Tosfot Yom Tov.

There is a strange story that a German (or in some versions French) Baron shows up out of the blue, to pay off his huge ransom and free him.

After his death, Lippman’s son made up some legend about rescuing a nobleman’s daughter from a raging bull in the forest, and that’s why the guy paid up so much money to free his dad.

Personally, I don’t buy it.

Personally, I think THIS is the more likely explanation for that gentile German Baron showing up to spring R’ Lippman Heller out of prison:

“It is possible but unclear whether the addition of Oettingen and Wallerstein to their names means his ancestors had connections by marriage with the noble families of the House of Oettingen-Wallerstein.”

This from Wikipedia:

Oettingen-Wallerstein (German Öttingen-Wallerstein) is a noble family related to a former County in modern-day eastern Baden-Württemberg and western Bavaria, Germany. The other formerly sovereign branch of the Oettingen family is the House of Oettingen-Spielberg.


The  name ‘Oettingen’ became ‘Ettinger’ in the Jewish community.

More on that another time.

But I just want to point out one more interesting link before we continue.


According to Wikipedia, that last guy in the last, Count Anton Karl, is one of the Oettingen-Wallerstein counts.

CO-INC-ID-ENT-ALLY, Yonatan Eibshutz had a pupil called Carl Anton who is meant to have apostasized to xtianity, who came to defend him to the xtian authorities when he was accused of being a Sabbatian. This from the Jewish Encylopedia:

ANTON, CARL (originally Moses Gershon Cohen)

Anton took part in the well-known dispute between Jacob Emden and Jonathan Eibenschütz, in which he warmly defended the latter—some say at Eibenschütz’ request (“Kurze Nachricht von dem Falschen Messias, Shabbethai Ẓebi,” etc., Wolfenbüttel, 1752; “Nachlese zu Dieser Nachricht,” Brunswick, 1753).


As usual, we are only being told a very small part of the real story.


Back to Yom Tov Lippman Heller, who is buried NEXT TO THE WALL in the old Jewish cemetery in Cracow.

If you want to know why the Chief Rabbi of the city would be buried in a place reserved for converts, Karaites, people of unsavory reputation and poor people, then it’s your lucky day!

There’s a whole legend – the story of Yossele the Holy Miser – that explains it.


Because it’s obvious, that R’ Yom Tov Lippman Heller was DEFINITELY NOT A KARAITE OR A CONVERT OR ANYONE DODGY.


But this story doesn’t end here.

I was trying to find out who some of Yom Tov Lippman Heller’s descendants were, to round out the picture.

Apparently, he was the ancestor of the Ketzos HaChoshen, Aryeh Leib Heller (who is also proving very hard to track down…)

But when I started digging into it, I found out he’s also the ancestor of a great many other big rabbis too – but that this information has been deliberately hidden.

And I’m still not 100% sure why.


One of his illustrious descendants was Yaakov Yosef of Polnoye – the BESHT’s leading disciple, who was kind of elbowed out of the way by the Maggid of Mezeritch.

Here‘s how:


R’ Yom Tov’s daughter Raizel married one Yaakov Yosef Kahana (yes, that is apparently a very well known Karaite surname…) and had R’ Yaakov Yosef Heller Kahana of Polnoye, aka the Toldot Yaakov Yosef.

But that’s not even the most surprising thing.

As I was trawling through, I also hit THIS:


I have been trying to track down the real story of the Chacham Tzvi for a very long time.

It was clear to me that so much of the ‘official narrative’ is hooey, but again I just haven’t been able to find an alternative version that I can stand up.

Now I can.


There are two famous ‘stories’ about a man who was apparently seen killed during the Chmielniki uprisings in 1648, so the rabbis permitted his wife to remarry.

Trouble was, the man wasn’t killed, and came back home a year later.

In one version of that story – the one attributed to Yaakov Emden, apparently the Chacham Tzvi’s son – this ‘resurrected’ man is called the Shaar Ephraim, and is meant to be the father or grandfather of the Chacham Tzvi.

In turn, the Shaar Ephraim is meant to have descended from the mythical ‘Rabbi Elijah Baal Shem of Chelm’ – who is COMPLETELY MADE UP.

Why would they lie, that’s the question?

(BTW, the Shaar Ephraim is meant to be the grandson of Ephraim Fishel, who CO-INC-ID-ENT-ALLY is the brother of that royal tax collector who became a xtian,  Moshe Stefan Fiszel Powditzky.)

The second version of the story provides some possible answers to that question.


In that second – and probably truthful – version of the story, the man who is ‘resurrected’ – the father of the Chacham Tzvi – is called Yaakov Koppel Heller Wallerstein FRANKEL.


This makes the Chacham Tzvi the maternal grandson of Yom Tov Lippman Heller.

And that makes Yaakov Yosef of Polnoye the Chacham Tzvi’s maternal uncle…

But just take a look at all those Frankels!!! Tons and tons of Frankels, as far as the eye can see.

And you remember who else was a Frankel, don’t you?


Jacob Leib Benjamin FRANKEL, aka Jacob Frank, the notorious false messiah whose followers partnered up with a whole bunch of satanic secret societies, including the Freemasons, to create our current reality.

No wonder they hid this trail so well.


There is so much more to unpick here still.

For every fact I turn up, there are 300 more just piled up underneath it, also calling my name.

But that will do for now.

It’s all building up into a picture of ‘Jewish leadership’ down the centuries that is made up of crypto-Jews, xtian noble converts, Karaites and a few other things (Subbotniks?!) that appears to be anything but really….Jewish.

And that explains a lot, doesn’t it?

It’s amazing the information you find, when you actually start with real people, instead of manufactured ‘history’.

If you remember from THIS post, we’d just figured out that at least one branch of Zeitlins changed their name to ‘Fundaminsky’.

The grandfather of these Zeitlin / Fundaminskys was none other than the Russian tea oligarch (and big Zionist funder), Kalonymus Ze’ev Wissotsky.

We also learned that these Fundaminskys were Bolsheviks involved in the Russian Revolution.


We also learned that ‘Manya Tumarkin’ – who appears to have married these two Zeitlin / Fundaminsky brothers, plus the non-Jewish, Russian Minister of Interior affairs Nikolai Avksentyev – links us straight back to the ‘Tumarkin dynasty’ closely associated with CHABAD.

The last thing we learned is that the leading ‘Zionist thinker’ Ahad Ha’am – Asher Ginzburg – actually worked for Wissotsky – and was married to the niece of the 5th Lubavitcher Rebbe.


OK, so now you are all caught up, let’s see what we can learn about this mysterious ‘Tumarkin’ connection, with the Zeitlin / Fundaminskys, Wissotsky, and of course, the Zionist enterprise that created the State of Israel.

While I hit a dead-end pretty fast with Manya Tumarkin‘s own genealogy, all carefully hidden behind ‘private’ labels, I struck gold, when I started searching from the top down.

This is a screenshot for the entry for ‘Aharon Tumarkin‘ (the first):



I’ve been doing this so long now, that I have certain names emblazoned on my brain as ‘interesting’.

The name ‘KLETZKER’ is one of those names.

‘EISENSTADT’ is another of those names.

So, I immediately see that this Aharon Tumarkin is:

a) Meant to be married to an ‘anonymous’ Eisenstadt / Kletzker.

b) That this same anonymous Eisenstadt / Kletzker woman is also the wife of the Alter Rebbe’s grandson, one ‘Baruch Klutzkar’.


I start clicking around, and I somehow come across THIS attached document.

(It’s in Hebrew and Yiddish.)

It’s a whole, big collection of official Chabad ‘stories’ about Benjamin Kletzker, Aharon Tumarkin’s father-in-law.

Very quickly, I become amazed by what I’m reading.


Like, the story of how this Benjamin Kletzker comes with the Alter Rebbe, and the Mittler Rebbe, to ‘confront’ none other than Yehoshua Zeitlin, who is described as the ‘chief mitnaged’, at home in his mansion.

And then there are stories of how this Benjamin Kletzker and Pinchas Rosanes Shick are big merchants, doing kiruv in the local fairs in Leipzig, and while they tie their trees together as part of their lumber merchant activities.

And then, there are stories of how Rabbi Shlomo of Karlin tries to ‘entice’ Benjamin Kletzer to become his chassid… and more stories of how Benjamin Kletzker storms into the ‘mitnaged’ shul in Vilna, bangs on the bima and gives over a big shot of chassidic mussar….

And then, there are stories that show that this Benjamin Kletzker mamash seems to be treated as something of an equal by the Alter Rebbe; and the Mittler Rebbe, and also the Tzemach Tzedek (Rebbe Number 3).

So how come I never heard of this guy before?!?!


So then I get up to page 65, screenshotted below, and here is what I read:



(This is all talking about this same guy, Benjamin Eisenstadt / Kletzker):

His sons-in-law

One of his children married the Rabbi Baruch of Shklov / Orsha, the second son of Rabbi Eliyahu (ben Rabbi Mordechai), and the Rabbanit Frieda, daughter of the Alter Rebbe.

The daughter of Rabbi Baruch was the daughter-in-law of the Tzemach Tzedek, the wife of his son R’ Yaakov, who died during the lifetime of the Tzemach Tzedek.

[Benjamin Kletzker’s] second son-in-law was Rabbi Aharon Tumarkin, (the grandfather of ‘Chatan Danan).

His third son-in-law was ‘the big, famous’ Rabbi Ber Leib Baruchin, from Plotsk.


So, we already learned some interesting stuff here.

We learn that the Alter Rebbe’s daughter Frieda was married to someone called ‘Rabbi Eliyahu ben Mordechai’, and that their son is ‘Rabbi Baruch of Shklov’ – who is probably none other than Baruch Shick of Shklov.

Way back at the beginning of this odyssey, we fingered Baruch Schick as an early ‘reformer’ and proponent of the haskalah.

Here’s some more interesting information about him, from HERE:


Rabbi and physician, studied medicine in England.

He translated many scientific works into Hebrew. Jewish scholar and encyclopedist.he received the title of rabbi in 1764 in Brest and served as a dayan (religious judge) in Minsk, studied medicine in England and published a treatise on trigonometry “enEneh ha-Midah “(Prague, 1784; Shklov, 1793), as well as works on astronomy, anatomy and hygiene.

Translated the works of Euclid into Hebrew; he spent the last years of his life in Slutsk, where he served as a dayan and court physician to the prince Radziwill.

He joined one of the English Masonic lodges at the end of the 18th century.

Towards the end of his life, he spent some time with the famous philanthropist Joshua Zeitlin. He set up a chemical laboratory for his scientific experiments. 


Just file Baruch Shick’s connection to Prince Radziwill away for now. It’s a big clue to what is really going on here.


According to this document above, which is meticulously footnoted from conventional Chabad sources, Baruch of Shklov’s maternal grandfather is Shneur Zalman, aka the Alter Rebbe.

But according to the Jew-Age website HERE, Baruch Shick of Shklov’s maternal grandfather is none other than… the Sha’agat Aryeh.


Back in THIS post, about R’ Chaim Kanievsky’s ancestor, the haskalah-promoting Shimshon ben Mordechai of Slonim, we learned the following (from his Wikipedia page):

Meeting with Baruch Schick of Shklov

In 1778, upon the recommendation of the Vilna GaonBaruch Schick of Shklov (1744-1808) journeyed to Slonim to ask Shimshon to write an approbation to the first ever Hebrew translation of Euclid’s Elements, Sefer Oklidus. Shimshon agreed and wrote part of the introduction to the book.


Go back and read that post.

You’ll see how the mythical Sha’agat Aryeh figures large in that post, too.

Here’s another pertinent snippet:

Here‘s another interesting link:

Joshua Zeitlin (1742 in ShklovBelarus – August 18, 1822, in KhersonNovorossiya) was a Russian rabbinical scholar and philanthropist. He was a pupil of the Talmudist Rabbi Aryeh Leib ben Asher Gunzberg who was the author of Sha’agat Aryeh;


And lastly, this comes from the website:

Baruch Shik lived for many years in the Ustye estate, owned by an outstanding teacher of the law and philanthropist Joshua Zeitlin, where he continued his serious study of the Torah…

His grandson, the outstanding teacher of the law, R. Yaakov Bruchin, was one of the closest students of the founder of the Volozhin Yeshiva, Haim from Volozhin.


Click on the piece about Haim of Volozhin, and here’s what you get:

It is said that at the time when R. Chaim was about to be born, an outstanding teacher of the law, R. Aryeh-Leib Ginzburg (Shaagat Aryeh), was studying in their house, which was rich in books. 

Although Rivka, the woman in labor, was in agony, not a single moan escaped her lips, and she restrained herself so as not to distract the sage from his thoughts. When R. Aryeh-Leib learned of this dedication for the sake of Torah, he blessed the woman in labor, wishing that the son who was born would become a great Torah scholar (ibid.).

In his childhood and youth, Chaim studied under R. Aryeh-Leib Ginzburg, who became the chief rabbi of Volozhin and opened a yeshiva there.


You see, it’s exactly the same names, the same people, coming up again and again and again.


Let’s finish this post by taking a closer look at Rabbi Yaakov Bruchin (1780-1844).

A big, red flag that something interesting is going on with him is that he’s been almost totally scrubbed off the web.

Almost all I can find is this PeoplePill entry in Hebrew, that is preserving information from a Wikipedia page that apparently no longer exists, but which also got copied over to Wikiwand before it was scrubbed. Here’s some pertinent info:


That first bit I highlighted says that R Yaakov Baruchin’s son is called R’ Alexander Sender.


That name again.

And the last line says:

“His great-granddaughter, Rosa Cohen, was the mother of Yitzhak Rabin.”


Or to put this into ‘other words’, Israeli PM Yitzhak Rabin was the direct descendant of the Alter Rebbe of Chabad.

Here’s how that works:

Alter Rebbe > Frieda > Baruch Shick of Shklov > Unknown child > R’ Yaakov Baruchin > > > > Rosa Cohen > Yitzhak Rabin.

Same people, same families, on all sides of this State of Israel / Litvak / Chabad equation.

That’s why they are hiding all this information, and scrubbing all these ‘links in the chain’ out of Jewish history.


This comes from the Wikipedia page for Yitzhak Rabin, and is also weird:

Yitzhak’s mother, Rosa Cohen, was born in 1890 in Mogilev in Belarus. Her father, a rabbi, opposed the Zionist movement and sent Rosa to a Christian high school for girls in Gomel, which gave her a broad general education.

Early on, Rosa took an interest in political and social causes. In 1919, she traveled to Palestine on the steamship Ruslan. After working on a kibbutz on the shores of the Sea of Galilee, she moved to Jerusalem.


Yeah sure!

Rabbis who oppose Zionism were always sending their kids to xtian schools in the late 1800s, didn’t you know?

(If they were Frankist-Freemasons, that is.)


We will come back to Benjamin Kletzker another time soon, God willing.

And probably a few other of the characters mentioned here, too.

So, we started off with Bolshevik Zeitlins and Zionist Wissotskys, and ended up with the Alter Rebbe, his grandson, the Freemason Baruch Shick, the Volozhin yeshiva, and finally…. Yitzhak Rabin.

And I’m sure we’re not done yet.




If you go to the geni entry HERE and click ‘view tree’, you’ll start to see how so many of the State of Israel’s ‘establishment’ are all related to each other.

Eugenics pushing Arthur Ruppin.…Aharon Yadlin, father of Amos Yadlin,  Major-General Uzi Narkiss... and in that same family tree, the one for Yitzhak Rabin’s mum, Rosa, we also find another illustrious relative:



The ‘unknown sister’ of R Yaakov Baruchin is the ancestor of R’ Aharon Kotler of Lakewood Yeshiva.

I.e. Rav Aharon Kotler is also a descendent of Baruch Shick, and the Alter Rebbe of Chabad.

Such a small gene pool all our leaders swim in, isn’t it?

How’s that for a title?

This post was 100% out of the blue.

I don’t even remember how I got there, but I was tootling around looking up some stuff about Mark Vishniak, who was yet another one of those high-ranking ‘atheist’ Jews at the forefront of the Russian Revolution.

HERE‘s a snippet from Wiki:

Mark Veniaminovich Vishniak (1883–1977) was a Russian socialist, journalist and writer. M. V. Vishniak was born in Moscow in 1883, the son of a wealthy merchant. He was a childhood friend of the future Socialist-Revolutionary leaders A.R. Gots and I.I. Fondaminsky.
The name Fondaminsky got me to sit up a little, as it fits straight in with the Alter Rebbe’s catholic son, Moshe, and his daughter Rachel, who is meant to have married one Moshe Tzvi Fundaminsky.
So, I started doing some digging.
Here’s the relevant snippets from Wikipedia:

Ilya Isidorovich Fondaminsky (1880-1942), was a Russian author (writing under the pseudonym Bunakov) and political activist, in 1910s one of the leaders of the Esers party, in 1917 a senior member of the Alexander Kerensky‘s Provisional government

In France where he was living since immigration in 1919, Fondaminsky veered off from the left and became an influential newspaper editor (Sovremennye Zapisky, among others), author of philosophical essays and in the later years — much admired philanthropist, supporting Christian magazines and charity funds.

Facing the Nazi occupation, Fondaminsky refused to leave Paris, saying he was willing to accept his destiny whatever it may be. Arrested in July 1941 as a Jew and sent to the concentration camp, he adopted Christianity and was received into the Russian Orthodox Church not long before being sent to Auschwitz.

Ilya Fondaminsky died there on November 19, 1942. In 2003, he was officially pronounced a Russian Orthodox saintly martyr by the Patriarch of Constantinople.


That’s quite a story, hey?

And we will get to Alexander Kerensky in another post soon, because he was also a Freemason, probably a Frankist, and definitely a Jew.

So, I went to see what more I could learn about this ‘xtian saint’ Fondaminsky, and who his family was. Which is when I got to THIS, the geni entry for his wife, one Amalia (Malka Bracha) Fundaminski (nee Gavaranski).


She was born in 1882, and apparently died in 1932.

Me being me, I also went to check out Ilya’s brother, one Mordechai Fundaminsky, apparently from Shklov, who weirdly seemed to be a full 20 years older than his only sibling, Ilya.

Apparently, he was quite the looker.

So much so, that the stuff I found online about him just went on and on and on about his ‘bluish-black’ velvety hair…


I really have no idea how I got to this next bit of the puzzle – call it happy serendipity.

But I was clicking around when the picture of someone called Mikhail Zeitlin really caught my eye:



I thought to myself.

This ‘Mikhail Zeitlin’ guy looks EXACTLY like Mordechai Fundaminski….

So I started checking out his relatives, and whaddya know? Look who he’s married to:


Look very closely at that picture of Manya Zeitlin (nee Tumarkin).

You’ll see that Manya Zeitlin, and Amalia (Malka Bracha) Fundaminski are THE SAME PERSON.

Born the same year, the same photo, the same connections…


Back in THIS post, I was laying out some of the (assumed) connections between the Rivlins and the Zeitlins and the Schneersons. Here’s what I wrote back then:

You’ll remember that I already talked about the Zeitlin connection to the Alter Rebbe, and to the haskalah, HERE.

Joshua Zeitlin is listed as the father in law of ‘Reb Alexander Sender’ – apparently one of the Alter Rebbe’s favorite talmidim.

And ‘Alexander Sender’ is meant to be the father of Moshe of Shklov – who we already pinned down as being one and the same as Moshe Schneuri, the Alter Rebbe’s catholic Frankist son.

 That would make Joshua Zeitlin the Alter Rebbe’s father in law.


So now, let’s get the ducks in a row again, before continuing.

The Alter Rebbe’s grand-daughter via his catholic son Moshe Shneuri is Rachel Fundaminsky – she marries one Moshe Tzvi Fundaminsky who doesn’t really exist, outside of fake Jewish geneaology.

We know there is a direct link between the Alter Rebbe and the Zeitlin family, but we don’t know how they intersect, as it’s all been deliberately hidden.

What we just learned above is that at least one branch of the Zeitlin family changed their name to ‘Fundaminsky’.

That same branch of the Zeitlin / Fundaminsky family were very active in the Russian Revolution.

That same branch of the Zeitlin / Fundaminsky family have more weird connections to the Russian Orthodox Church, and apparently pulled off the unusual feat of converting to xtianity – and then being gassed – in Auschwitz.


OK, let’s see what more clues we can pick up here.

Mikhail Zeitlin / Mordechai Fundaminski’s parents are listed as Yosef Esel Zeitlin and Channe Wissotsky.

Channe’s dad is Kalonymus Ze’ev Wissotsky (1824-1904) – founder of the infamous Wissotsky tea company.

His biography is also very interesting. Here’s some pertinent snippets from YIVO’s entry:

Kalonymus Wissotzky was born in a town near Kovno into the family of a small merchant. At 18, he married and his wife’s parents agreed to support his Talmud studies for three years. He attended the Volozhin yeshiva but had to leave because of illness.

In 1853 Wissotzky studied with Yisra’el Salanter, the father of the Musar movement; subsequently, Wissotzky decided to direct 10 percent of his income to charity. In 1858 he moved to Moscow and worked in the tea business. During the 1860s and 1870s he became a major tea trader in Russia, and eventually opened branches in New York, London, and elsewhere in Europe….


… He helped to finance a Jewish school in Jaffa and also funded land purchases for Jewish workers in Palestine.

Wissotzky was also a member of Ha-Va‘ad ha-Odessa’i (Odessa Committee). In 1896–1897 he contributed financially to the periodical Ha-Shiloaḥ. Other beneficiaries of his philanthropy included the Zionist movement, ORT, and the yeshiva of Volozhin.

His daughter, Liba Miriam Gavronskii, helped to establish the yeshiva of Ponevezh. In Wissotzky’s will, he bequeathed his share of his tea company—a total of 1 million rubles—to charity. From this sum, 100,000 rubles were used to found the Technion in Haifa.


Yet again, we have the yeshivas of Volozhin and Ponevezh linked to  active ‘Zionists’, who are in turn linked to Russian Jewish oligarchs, who are in turn linked to the Zeitlin family…

What are the chances?

Do you know who else has a close connection to Wissotsky?

Ahad Ha’Am, aka Asher Zvi Hirsh Ginsburg. 

This snippet come from Wikipedia:

In 1896, Ginsberg became editor of Hashiloah, a Hebrew monthly, a position he held for six years. After stepping down as editor in 1903, he went back to the business world with the Wissotzky Tea Company.


Ahad Ha’Am was BIGGGG in the secular Zionist enterprise.

Like, really, really big.

And you know who he was married to?

One Rivka Shneerson, the niece of the 5th Lubavitcher Rebbe.

(Rabbi Schneur Zalman Mordechai Schneerson, her father, was the brother of the 5th Lubavitcher Rebbe’s wife, Shterna Sarah Schneerson.)


Hey, what a CO-IN-CID-ENCE!

Did you have ANY idea that the Chabad rebbes were so closely intertwined, at so many different junctures, with so many of the leading secular Zionists that mamash created the State of Israel?


Doesn’t that seem a little strange?


What else can we find over here?

Manya Zeitlin was born Manya Tumarkin.

Tumarkin is listed on geni as being a name that pops up a lot in the Chabad extended dynasty.

Now, I’d love to tell you exactly where Manya and her father Shmuel Tumarkin fits into all this – but it seems people are going to great lengths to keep that information hidden:


I wonder why?

The other husband listed for Manya Zeitlin might give us some clues about that.

He’s one Nikolay Avxentiev Avksentyevlisted as the non-Jewish, Bolshevik and Freemason Russian Minister of Interior Affairs.

How Manya managed to pull off two husbands at once, one Jewish and one a noble Russian – but both revolutionary Bolsheviks – is something not explained.

But are you starting to see, that there are many, many reasons why the genealogies of all these families closely related to Jacob Frank have been so messed up?

There is so much hiding out under all this.


The Sabbatean/Frankist/Freemasons took over our community (and apparently, not a few secular governments….) many hundreds of years ago.

Very little of what we are taught to be real Jewish history is true.

And it’s now time to figure out who those Frankist-Freemason families really were, so we can trace their actions, identify their connections – and finally reclaim the Jewish community for the side of good.

Why does all this matter?

***Updates on Jacob Frank, below***


If you know that you are dealing with THE SAME FAMILY, just one branch is running the secular State of Israel, while the other branch is running the ‘ultra orthodox community’ of Israel – well.

You start to ask all sorts of questions about vested interests, and back-door channels, and also – why the heck aren’t we being told, that literally all these people are close blood relatives, who in turn are tied to suspected Sabbatian-Frankist families?

Sure, people can always make teshuva.

But we also know, that this world is an olam hafuch….and that the people who are ‘on the top’ are really way, way down there, on the bottom, spiritually.

And vice-versa.


So let’s see if we can tease out some more of the ties between the State of Israel, and the so-called ‘ultra-orthodox leadership’ here.

Let’s start with a guy called Yitzhak ben Tzvi, aka the Second President of Israel, after Chaim Weizmann.

Here he is, cuddly old guy that he is:

And here is some basic info to get us started, from the Wikipedia page:

“Born in Poltava in the Russian Empire (today in Ukraine), Ben-Zvi was the eldest son of Zvi Shimshelevich, who later took the name Shimshi.

Shimshi was a leading Zionist activist and one of the organizers of the first Zionist Congress in 1897, who in 1952 was honored by the first Israeli Knesset with the title “Father of the State of Israel”.

A member of the B’ne Moshe and Hoveve Zion movements in Ukraine, he was (with Theodore Herzl) one of the organizers of the first Zionist Congress in Basel, Switzerland, in the fall of 1897.

At that Congress the World Zionist Organization was founded, and the intention to re-establish a Jewish state was announced.”


Do you know who the ‘Father of the State of Israel’ is directly related to?


The Chazon Ish.

Shimshi’s wife, Yitzhak ben Tzvi’s mother, plugs us straight into the ‘Karelitz’ family tree. Both Yitzhak ben Tzvi and the Chazon Ish had the same grandpa, one Meir HaLevi Epstein.

Here’s how that breaks down:

Meir HaLevi Epstein >

>Shaul Katzenellenbogen (Epstein) > Rashe Leah Karelitz > Chazon Ish

>Yitzhak Eliyahu Epstein > Yente Koplowitz > Atara, marries ‘Tzvi Shimshi Father of Israel’


Let’s learn a bit more about that second president of Israel, second cousin of the Chazon Ish (and of course, also of Rav Kanievsky’s mother.)

Here’s some more tidbits from the Wikipedia page:

  • He set up HaShomer in 1909, the military defense organisation that prefigured the Haganah, which then became the IDF.

Here’s it’s kind of creepy flag (and notice that black hexagon thingy, right in the centre.)

Another interesting co-founder of HaShomer is one Alexander Zaid.

Here’s a snippet, which really has me scratching my head:

Zaïd was born in 1886 in Zima, a town in Irkutsk Oblast, Siberia. His father had been deported from Vilna to Siberia due to revolutionary activity and his mother was a Subbotnik.


I’ve been trying to track down ‘Tilla Sabatka‘, one of the mysterious ancestors of the Alter Rebbe for months.

For some reason, it’s another name that’s hidden in the mists.

So I clicked on ‘Subbotnik‘, just to see if there might be a clue or a link, and this is what I learned:

The Subbotniks (“Sabbatarians”) is a common name for Russian religious movements of Christian origin, whom majority belonged to Rabbinic and Karaite Judaism, the Judaizers minority to Spiritual Christianity, split from other Sabbatarians in the late 18th century.


There are three main groups of people described as Subbotniks:

  • Judaizing Talmudists: Subbotnik converts to Rabbinic Judaism, also described as “Gery”, “Talmudisty”, or “Shaposhniki”.

  • Karaimites or Karaite Subbotniks: also described as “Russian Karaites“, considering themselves as adherents of Karaite Judaism. They recognize only the scriptural authority of the Torah and reject the Talmud; however, it has been reported that they don’t practice circumcision.

  • Subbotnik Molokans sect: in contradiction to the previous Subbotnik sects, they recognize the Gospel, but also practice some of the rules and precepts of the Old Testament.



Say what?!?!?

This is the first I’ve heard of these Russian xtian ‘converts’ to Judaism, some of whom appear to have been orthodox Jews, at least nominally, some of whom become non-circumcising Russian Karaites, and others who become ‘Subbotnik Molokans’ who mixed up xtianity with Judaism however which way they wanted.

And we’re not talking about small numbers here, either. Back to Wiki:

A 1912 religious census in Russia recorded 12,305 “Judaizing Talmudists”, and 4,092 “Russian Karaites”, and 8,412 Subbotniks who “had fallen away from Orthodoxy”.


So, in 1912 there are 25,000 of these quasi-Jewish ‘Subbotniks’.

(Other estimates say there are 100 times more of these Subbotniks in existence.)

And of course, they moved en masse to Palestine:

Subbotnik communities were among early supporters of Zionism. During the First Aliyah at the end of the 19th century, thousands of Subbotniks settled in Ottoman Palestine to escape religious persecution due to their differences with the Russian Orthodox Church. Some Subbotniks had immigrated to Ottoman Palestine even prior to the First Aliyah…

[T]hey were not considered Jews according to halakhaThey Hebraized their surnames to assimilate. Within a short period, the descendants of Subbotnik Jews who arrived in Ottoman Palestine in the late 19th century had completely blended and inter-married into the wider Jewish population of Israel.


You know, even I’m flummoxed by all this.

Are these ‘Subbotniks’ Frankists who left Judaism, and then tried to rejoin it?

Are they something else entirely?

And what is Rav Kook doing in the middle of all this?

The Torah-centered Bnei Moshe movement ties with the Subbotniks and formed the majority of the port Jaffa’s population.

In 1904, later famous Zionist rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook was invited by them to become their rabbi. The appointment of Rav Kook brought them closer to the Jewish religious mainstream.


What is totally mind-boggling to me is that this issue of ‘Subbotniks in Israel’ seems to be an open secret.

Ariel Sharon’s mother was apparently a ‘Subbotnik’….

R’ Shlomo Amar apparently ruled that the Subbotniks would have to convert back in 2004:

In 2004, the Sephardic Chief Rabbi of IsraelShlomo Amar ruled the Subbotniks were not defined as Jewish and would have to undergo an Orthodox conversion. The Interior Ministry classified the Subbotniks as a Christian sect and ineligible for aliyah to Israel, because no one knew if their ancestors had formally converted to Judaism (and there is much historic evidence that they did not).

The ruling was abolished in 2014, with an attempt by the Interior Ministry to allow remaining Subbotnik families to immigrate to Israel.

Apparently, most of the city of Yaffo (that isn’t Arab…) identifies as ‘Subbotnik’…


Man, this story is getting crazier and crazier.

I just found a PDF about the Subotnik history HERE, which I’m going to read now, and then I’ll update you what else I find.

Total madness.

But you see, this is at least part of the reason all these ‘links’ are being scrubbed and misrepresented.

There is a lot more going on here that none of us plebs have any idea about.




(Probably the first of many, on this subject.)

There seems to be 2 distinct groups of ‘Judaising’ Russians here. One are Subbotniks, and the other are Molokans.

Both groups seem to be connected on some level with the Karaite community in Crimea, and also with the Karaite community located in Troki, near Vilna:

According to Karaite tradition, Grand Duke Vytautas of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania relocated one branch of the Crimean Karaites to Lithuania ordering to build them a town, called today Trakai. There they continued to speak their own language….

The Lithuanian Karaites settled primarily in Vilnius and Trakai, as well as in Biržai, Pasvalys, Naujamiestis and Upytė – smaller settlements throughout Lithuania proper.

The Lithuanian Karaites also settled in lands of modern Belarus and Ukraine, which were part of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. The Karaite communities emerged in Halych and Kukeziv (near Lviv) in Galicia, as well as in Lutsk and Derazhne in Volhynia.


All roads lead back to Vilna, one way or another.

A lot of the interesting families I’m researching are flagged as having ongoing, protracted correspondence and connections with the Karaite chachamim.

If you go back to this post:

You’ll see there seem to be quite a few links between the Shor family and Lutzk, and Troki – fingered as Karaite hotspots.


And if you go HERE – it’s a site run by a Karaite historian with a chip on his shoulder about ‘Rabbiners’ – you’ll find the amazing story of a ‘Rabbiner-Karaite’ intermarriage.

The Karaite historian explains that the ‘Kahana’ family were prominent Karaites….

And one Yaakov Kahana ‘intermarried’ with one Rivka Reisa Schorr, back at the end of the 16th century.

Here’s a screenshot of that family tree:


I’ve highlighted some of the repeated names that came out of that ‘Schorr-Kahana’ Karaite marriage…

Shalom Shachna is a particularly common one.

The original ‘Shalom Shachna’ was Rabbi Shalom Shachne Shorr, the father-in-law of R’ Moshe Isserles, the REMA.

This R’ SS Shorr was the Chief Rabbi of Lublin / Lvov, but seemed to have had peculiar karaite tendencies, in how he interpreted Jewish law.

When the case of a Jewish sinner came before him, he decreed that the man should have his eyes gouged out and his tongue ripped out, as punishment.

That’s a karaite interpretation of Torah… which doesn’t hold by the oral Torah. So while the Karaite historian is fudging that side of things, it seems to me that the Shorr family may well have had deep connections to the Karaites even before this open ‘intermarriage’ between Yaakov Kahana and Shalom Shachne’s great-grand-daughter, Reisa Rivka Shorr (aka Charif Margolis).


Also, notice how this same family then also seems to have intermarried with the Oettingen-Wallersteins.

That’s a royal house of non-Jews located in what is now Germany.

See HERE for more details.

None of us know this stuff, I know.

It’s all been hidden from us plebs.

That so many of our Jewish communities ‘leaders’ either spent centuries as open xtians; or were actually Karaites; or even, converted non-Jews (and sometimes, not even converted) as part of the whole ‘Judaising’ movement that periodically convulsed various parts of Europe.



This is such a mess.

And is seems to be affecting so many of those prominent families with yichus in particular.

Which is probably why they’ve tried so hard to keep all this hidden under wraps or centuries.




Something tells me, this is going to be a really longgggg post.

I went to look up more of that Shalom Shachne’s family tree, this time on the JewAge website, that they’ve not done as good a job of scrubbing the facts off of.

Here’s a screenshot:


Shalom Shachne was married to the ‘unknown’ daughter of Jacob Koppelman Halevi Pollak, and Esther Fiszel.

One of Esther’s brother is called Ephraim Franczek Fiszel, we’ll come back to him another time.

The brother I want to focus on in this update is called Moshe Stefan Fiszel Powditzky.

Here’s a snippet about him:

[He] served as a creditor to kings Jan Olbracht and Aleksandereven before his conversion to Christianity.

In 1494, he represented the interests of the Jewish community in their disputes with non-Jewish residents of Kraków, and in that same year he was arrested with other Kraków Jews.

He served as collector of Jewish taxes in Great Poland (1499, 1503) and as director of the salt storehouse in Poznań (1504).

In 1499, when the Jews of Gniezno accused him of excessive tax collection, he received the support of the archbishop of Gniezno, Cardinal Fryderyk Jagiellończyk.


After converting to Catholicism (between 1503 and 1504); Stefan was ennobled by Zygmunt the Old, receiving the Koran coat of arms. His sons Jan and Stanisław also converted to Catholicism.

Their godmother was Elizabeth, the widow of King Casimir the Jagiellonian.

Stefan divorced his wife, who chose to remain Jewish. In 1510, with the king’s permission, he purchased the village of Powidz, from which he took his new surname, Powidzki.


You see what I mean?

Always the same story:

Tax-collecting, greedy people with Jewish blood, who somehow think nothing of ‘switching religions’ to maintain their status and financial clout in the non-Jewish world, all the while staying connected to the highest echelons of supposedly ‘Jewish’ religious society, via their family ties.

Stefan Powditzky is the brother-in-law of Shalom Shachne Shor, Chief Rabbi of Lvov and the REMA’s father in law.

Did anyone ever teach you that in school, when they were going on and on about just how ‘saintly’ the Jewish community was, in the good old days?


But that’s not the only mischief this extended family network is up to.

(BTW – go check it out for yourselves, they are literally in the middle of almost everything I’ve been flagging as an issue, or trying to track down, over the course of the last year.)

I think I just found the real Jacob Frank.

I knew that the real Jacob Frank HAD to have come from a connected family, in order to pull off what he pulled off.

Finally, God had mercy on me, and I tripped over THIS genealogy site, from Holland, while I was trying to track down more info about Shalom Shachne Shor.

Here’s the screenshot:


So, you see that guy way over on the left hand side, called Jacob Lob Benjamin Frankel (d 1791)?

I am 99.9% sure he is the real Jacob Frank.


His father is Judah Leib Frankel (tick…), his mother is an ‘unnamed’ daughter of R’ Yaakov Shor, who descends from the Shor family via Shalom Shachne Shor (and is probably a ‘secret’ Karaite. He’s the ABD of Lutzk, which you’ll recall from above is a known Karaite stronghold, as is Brody).

These links have been totally scrubbed on geni, and the mythical ‘BABAD’ family have been introduced instead:


His grandfather’s brother was the infamous Elisha Shor (Wolowsky), the ‘leader’ of the secret Sabbatians in the Jewish community.

That’s the guy Jacob Frankel had to convince, that he was the ‘next coming’ of Shabtai Tzvi, and who later converted out to Catholicism along with his children.


On his maternal grandmother’s side, Jacob Frank(el) descends from the Isserles clan, and is 6 generations away from the REMA.

If that wasn’t reason enough to try and cover all the tracks here – and it is – let’s add this in to the mix:

The Baal Shem Tov was also a close relative of Jacob Frank(el).

They had the same gg grandfather, R’ Moshe Leizer’s Isserles of Vilna.


Here’s how that breaks down:

Eliezer and Miriam Isserles > Rabbi Moshe Leizer’s Isserles of Vilna >

>Unknown son (could be Geni disinformation…) > R’ Pinchas Leizer’s Isserles > R’ Eliezer of Okopy > BESHT.

>Isaiah Isserles > Hana Isserles > unknown daughter (bat Yaakov Shor) > JACOB FRANK(EL).



I love it when (finally…) a plan starts to come together.

Let’s leave it there for now.

That’s probably enough head-wrecking info for one post.



Take a look at this:


It shows that the Vilna Gaon is also connected to the BESHT and Jacob Frank(el).

Here’s how (although I want to flag, that all these ‘half sisters’ are often used to try and camouflage direct links, so it could also be that gg grandfather of BESHT and Jacob Frank, R’ Moshe Leizer’s Isserles of Vilna, is actually also the direct ancestor of the Vilna Gaon, too.)

In the meantime, at the very least, R’ Moshe Leizer’s Isserles of Vilna wife is meant to be the ‘half sister’ of the Vilna Gaon’s ancestor, the Be’er HaGolah, R’ Moshe ‘HaChassid’ Rivka’s.


I’m going to break it down for you, but it’s easy to see there are too many generations on geni, to fit into the time slot.

Jacob Frank(el) dates: 1726-1791

BESHT dates: 1698 -1760 (which suggests that ‘unknown son’, above reaaly could be disinformation…)

Vilna Gaon: 1720-1797

Here’s how geni is breaking that down:

R’ Moshe ‘HaChassid’ Rivka’s, marries the sister of the wife of R’Moshe Leizer’s Isserles of Vilna >

R’ Petakhiah ben Moshe Rivkas > Rachel Nechama Rivkash (marries Eliyahu Chassid Kremer) > R’ Yissachar Dov Ber of Vilna > R’ Shlomo Zalman > VILNA GAON.

Just one big, happy family of Frankists, mitnagdim and chassidim….



There’s some more odd information about Yitzhak ben Tzvi, above.

This comes from HERE:

Together with Rachel Yanait in 1909, he organized a Jewish gymnasium in Jerusalem. 

After studying at the Galatasaray Lyceum in Istanbul, Ben-Zvi studied law at Istanbul University in 1912-1914 with David Ben-Gurion. 

In August 1914, they returned to Palestine, but were arrested by the Turkish authorities in 1915. They moved to New York and formed the Gehalutz movement there.

After returning to Palestine in 1918, Ben-Zvi married Rachel Yanait. They had two sons: Amram and Eli.


Turkey was the home of the Donmeh – the Sabbatian crypto-Jews who outwardly appeared to be Muslims.

There’s strong evidence that many of the ‘Young Turks’ who launched the secular revolution in Turkey (and who also, btw killed a million Armenians….) were actually Sabbatean Donmeh.

David Ben Gurion has long been fingered for being a Sabbatean/Frankist by many other readers, including Barry Hamish.

At least part of that evidence is his hard-to-understand sojourn in Turkey – which we see he shared with Yitzhak Ben-Tzvi.


Next snippet:

In 1948, Ben-Zvi headed the Institute for the Study of Eastern Jewish Communities, later named after him. Among others, the institute studied Karaites and Samaritans.


If you go back and re-read this post, you’ll see that this tie up with the Karaites and Samaritans doesn’t appear to be an accident.

Here’s another snippet about that Institute, from HERE:

The Karaite Jews. Several aspects of the history and culture of the *Karaite Jews are being investigated. These include an encyclopedia of Karaite personalities, a bibliography of Karaism, and a study of the inscriptions of the Karaites in Crimea.


And the weird stuff doesn’t end there.


This comes from the Russian Wikipedia:

From the words of Avraham Tehomi, Ben-Zvi ordered the murder of Jacob Israel de Haan in 1924.

De Haan arrived in Palestine as an ardent Zionist but he became increasingly critical of Zionist organizations, preferring a negotiated solution to the armed struggle between Jews and Arabs.

Here is how Tehomi admitted his involvement in the murder more than sixty years later in an interview with Israeli television in 1985:

“I did what the Haganah decided to do. And nothing was done without Yitzhak Ben-Zvi’s order. I don’t regret it, because he [de Haan] wanted to destroy our whole idea of Zionism.” 




Was Yitzhak Ben-Tzvi also a Sabbatean / Frankist, like so many of the other Labour Zionists ruling Israel?

And if yes, when did that ‘Sabbatean / Frankist’ tendency begin, in his family?



You might also like this article:


A few months’ ago, I happened across an interesting person in Jewish history named Shimshon ben Mordechai of Slonim.

It was back in that period of time when I was writing pieces about the Yichus of Shimon Peres, and the Yichus of Sarah Paritsky, wife of Ben Nitay – the infamous descendent of the Vilna Gaon who was recently booted out as PM in Israel.

What was coming through loud and clear from all that research, at that time, is how all these secular politicians were literally related to each other, and notably to the Vilna Gaon and his small band of, disciples and ‘perushim’.


Back then, we were discovering that any way you sliced a ‘division’ in the Jewish community, you would find members of the exact same three families heading it up.

  • Mitnaged vs chassid…
  • Zionist vs ‘anti’-Zionist…
  • Religious vs secular…
  • Reform vs ultra-orthodox…
  • And probably even
  • Sephardi vs ashkenazi – although standing that one up in real time is something that’s going to take me a huge amount of time to prove, if I ever get around to it.

It comes back to this idea of ‘controlled opposition’, where basically the controllers have to have their people on both sides of the equation, the war, the division, in order to ensure an outcome that can be, well, controlled.


At that point, so many months ago, I tripped over some interesting connections with the Karelitz family of gaonim.

But I decided to shelve them, as I had enough controversy going on at that point.

Well, today I was going to write you a whole long piece explaining how all these PCR tests we are doing in Israel are sending our DNA directly to databases in China – in Wuhan, actually – with the blessing of the corrupt State of Israel.

But somehow, I managed to delete all my tabs again, which I took as a sign that I should write about something else instead.

And then, bizarrely, out of nowhere, I ‘tripped over’ all the information about Shimshon ben Mordechai of Slonimthat I decided to shelve, six months ago.


Lots has happened since then.

Like this, for example:

WATCH: HaRav Chaim Kanievsky Approves: Pregnant Women To Get Vaccinated

Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky backs call to vaccinate children over 12

So, I decided that shemayim decided I should write this stuff today, so people can decide for themselves what might be going on here, in the family-run mafia aka the State of Israel.


Let’s start with the Wikipage for Shimshon ben Mordechai of Slonim, full as it is with deliberate misdirection.

There, we learn the following:

Shimshon (Samson) ben Mordechai of Slonim (c. 1734/1736 – 1794), was an 18th-century rabbi, philosopher, mathematician, and scientist.

He was one of the leaders of Haskalah and the Misnagdim, and was greatly influenced by the Vilna Gaon. He was the Av Beit Din of Slonim and Königsberg and is thought to have been descended from Shimshon Loew ben Bezalel, the Maharal of Prague’s brother through his grandson, Samson ben Pesah Ostropoli.


Straight off the bat, please notice we are back in ‘Maharal of Prague’ territory.

Honestly, we nearly always are.

Let’s get the easy stuff out the way first.

First, let’s define what the Haskalah actually was (from Wikipedia):

The Haskalah, often termed Jewish Enlightenment (Hebrew: השכלה‎; literally, “wisdom”, “erudition” or “education”), was an intellectual movement among the Jews of Central and Eastern Europe, with certain influence on those in Western Europe and the Muslim world. It arose as a defined ideological worldview during the 1770s, and its last stage ended around 1881, with the rise of Jewish nationalism.


In other words, Reform Judaism, zionism and mass conversion, atheism and Jewish apostasy all flowed from this same well of ‘Haskalah’, culminating in the creation of the State of Israel.

And this guy, Shimshon ben Mordechai of Slonim, was somehow bang in the middle of enthusiastically pushing all that along.


Perhaps, then, you’ll find it a little strange to learn that Shimshon ben Mordechai of Slonim’s descendants include the Chazon Ish and R’ Chaim Kanievsky.

Here’s how that goes, in descending order:

Shimshon ben Mordechai of Slonim >

Gershon Zelig Karelitz >

Zundel Karelitz >

Yeshaya Shmeril Karelitz >

Samuel Shamke Karelitz >

Eliyahu Shmaryahu Yosef Karelitz >

> Avraham Yehoshua Karelitz (Chazon Ish)

> Miriam Karelitz married the Steipler Gaon, and had R’ Chaim Kanievsky.


Now, all sorts of strange things happen in families, it’s true.

But I find it very surprising that an early ‘leader of the haskalah’ should have had descendants who not only stayed within the orthodox fold, but who also rose to become the defacto ‘leaders’ of the orthodox Jewish world in Eretz Yisrael.

Because mostly, the kids of these early leaders of the haskalah converted out, or apostosized faster than you can say “the haskalah was created by Frankist families who stayed within the Jewish community.”

But looky, here, the chasdai Hashem!

Not only did this branch of haskalah reformers stay frum, they were also able to give Am Yisrael such tremendous guidance in these dark times, especially in relation to the very complex question of whether it’s safe to take the Covid 19 experimental gene therapy, that includes biotoxic graphene oxide.

Truly, it’s outstanding.

But let’s continue, as I told you, getting this stuff out the way is the easy bit of unpicking what’s going on here.


Let’s just take a quick detour to see who the Chazon Ish is connected to on his mother’s side.

Here we discover that Rasha’s father is one R’ Shaul Katzenelenbogen (1828 – 1891) who happened to change his family name to Katzenelenbogen, from Epstein.

It’s weird that he changed the family name to that for a lot of reasons, not least that his great-grandfather was a very highly esteemed Rav named R’ Aryeh Leib HaLevi Epstein.

Why would people who are SO into their yichus want to somehow ‘hide’ their connection to R’ Aryeh Leib HaLevi Epstein?

Let’s see if we can find out.


(BTW, I’m doing this ‘live’ as it were, so I have no idea where all this is going to end up. But I have the feeling, it’s going to be an interesting ride.)

If we go to the Hebrew Wikipedia page for R’ Aryeh Leib HaLevi Epstein (1708-1775) (which always seems to be more factually correct and less doctored, at least for Torah sages), we learn the following nuggets:

  • He served as the Rabbi of Koenigsburg for 30 years.
  • He was born in Grodno, to R Mordechai Epstein (aka ‘Mordechai Wilner’) – that’s interesting, because the Vilner Gaon’s descendants went by the name ‘Wilner’, including this one: R’ Mordcha Motel Marcus Mordechai Wilner.)
  • The Karelitz family have been intermarrying with this particular branch of the Epstein / Katzenelenbogen family for generations.
  • He wrote 23 books on the kabbalah, including one called ‘Ha Pardes‘.
  • The Vilna Gaon only gave 3 haskamas in his life to books – and two of these are to books written by R’ Aryeh Leib HaLevi Epstein.
  • He was a very close friend of Yonatan Eibshutz
  • There is a very strong ‘Vilna’ dimension to all this.


Let’s see if we can try to unpick this some more.

If we head back to Geni, we discover that Mordechai Epstein had a few other children, including one called Zeev Wolf HaLevy Epstein.

What I immediately notice as I’m clicking around is that so many of these relatives have been hidden behind the ‘private’ label – which is kinda weird. I mean, it’s almost 300 years ago, so what are they trying to hide, here?

I know from past experience that these interesting families always try to marry each other, so when I see that the daughter of Zeev Wolf, one Rivka, marries an unidentified ‘Aryeh Leib’…. well. I get the feeling that it’s her uncle, OUR Aryeh Leib HaLevy Epstein, author of HaPardes.

But why would they try to cover that up?



One possible clue is that ‘Aryeh Leib’ is meant to be the son of Rabbi Shmuel, the last ABD of Vilna.

If you go back to THIS post, you’ll get more of the background about the huge ruckus that was going on in Vilna during the tenure of the Vilna Gaon, which saw the kahal and the chief Rabbi – this Shmuel ben Avigdor – fighting a pitched battle for control for more than 30 years.

That whole episode has been totally distorted and misreported, historically, because I think it’s at the heart of so much of the ‘Frankist takeover’ of our modern Jewish world. But here’s the bit I want you to focus on, for now:

  • The real identity of ‘Rabbi Shmuel ben Avigdor‘ – the Chief Rabbi of Vilna, at the time of the Vilna Gaon, and the son-in-law of wealthy shtadlan ‘Rabbi Yehuda ben Eliezer Safra deVayana’ – has also been deliberately hidden.


If Aryeh Leib Epstein’s dad is ‘Rabbi Shmuel’, that makes ‘Rabbi Shmuel’ = Mordechai Epstein, aka Mordechai Wilner.

And that makes Aryeh Leib’s mother the daughter of ‘R’ Yehuda ben Eliezer Safra deVayana.

And if that’s the only mystery we clear up today, then dayenu. But I don’t think it will be.

Eliakim Getzel’, the one child not marked as ‘private’ is an unusual name, and it leads us straight back into the midst of the interesting families I’ve fingered previously as being made-up pseudonyms for Sabbatean-Frankists, who were trying to cover their genealogical tracks.

But let’s leave that there, for now, because I want to get back to the connections between Aryeh Leib Epstein, Shimshon ben Mordechai of Slonim, and the mysterious Vilna Gaon.


First, here’s a snippet from the Yizkor book for the community of Ciechanowiec, in Poland.

(Bear with me – all this will come together by the end of the post. I hope.)

The close ties between the Vilna Gaon and Ciechanowiec found their source in Rabbi David Saul Katzenelbogen, Head of the Court in Ciechanowiec.

Rabbi David had four sons named after four animals. They were Zvi Hersch, Ze’ev Wolf, Aryeh Leib, and Dov Ber.

Of these, Aryeh Leib was the comrade of the Vilna Gaon.

There is a standard edition of the Hebrew Bible with many commentaries known as the Mikraot Gedolot, which includes a commentary of the Vilna Gaon entitled Aderet Eliyahu (Mantle of Elijah). In the section dealing with Leviticus we find, “When the Vilna Gaon was ten years old he had a companion closer than a brother, that famed Gaon, our Master and Rabbi Aryeh Leib of Ciechanowiec.”…

So close was the friendship between these two scholars that the Vilna Gaon subsequently named his firstborn son Yehuda Leib after Aryeh Leib of Ciechanowiec.


Is ‘Aryeh Leib Epstein’, author of HaPardes, whose books got two of only three haskamot the Vilna Gaon ever wrote, the same as this ‘Aryeh Leib Katzenelenbogen of Ciechanowiec’?

Who was apparently such a close bosom buddy of the Vilna Gaon, he even named his firstborn son in his honor?

It’s at least possible.

If you take a look at the geni screenshot below, you’ll see that, just like R’ David Saul Katzenelenbogen, R’ Mordechai Epstein (Wilner) also has: four sons named after four animals. They were Zvi Hersch, Ze’ev Wolf, Aryeh Leib, and Dov Ber.


So now, we can add another pseudonym into the mix:

R’ David Saul Katzenelenbogen of Ciechanowiec = R’ Mordechai Epstein (Wilner) = R’ Shmuel ben Avidgor, the last ABD of Vilna.

But let’s get back to Shimshon ben Mordechai of Slonim, because there is still more secrets hiding out over there.


Here’s another snippet from his Wikipedia entry:

Marriage and life in Slonim (1765-1788)

In around 1765, Ichile Ginshpriker, son of Aryeh Leib Epstein, arranged for his first cousin, Basha bat Ze’ev Wolf and Shimshon to be married. They married on 26 October 1765.

In 1769, Shimshon got a seat in Slonim as an Av Beit Din (Chief Rabbinical Judge). He kept this position until around 1791. Shimshon became part of the movement of Haskalah.

When he became Av Beit Din in Slonim, he began to spread the concept of Haskalah throughout the city. He is regarded as the first Chief Rabbi to do so in Slonim.


Hey, small world or what!

And if we’re right that Basha’s sister Rivka married her uncle, Aryeh Leib, that would make Aryeh Leib Epstein and Shimshon ben Mordechai brothers-in-law.

Next snippet:


Shimshon had a library of around 250 to 300 books that he had collected on his journeys to Hamburg and other cities. People such as the Vilna Gaon and Solomon Maimon came to Slonim to borrow books from his library. Among Shimshon’s prized possessions was the unpublished work, Bosmat Bat Shelomoh by the rabbi, Joseph Solomon Delmedigo.


More strange links with the Vilna Gaon.

And also, pay attention to that guy Joseph Solomon Delmedigo.

He is one of the main people who introduced Copernicus’s ideas of scientific ‘sun worship’ into the orthodox Jewish community.

Delmedigo’s daughter Sarah married straight into the Oppenheimer clan – and yes, we get straight back to all these fabulously wealthy ‘chief rabbi / tax collectors’ who used to be xtians but are now, conveniently, Jewish again.

Are you starting to see how all this is connected – and has been for centuries?


Another snippet:

Meeting with Baruch Schick of Shklov

In 1778, upon the recommendation of the Vilna Gaon, Baruch Schick of Shklov (1744-1808) journeyed to Slonim to ask Shimshon to write an approbation to the first ever Hebrew translation of Euclid’s Elements, Sefer Oklidus. Shimshon agreed and wrote part of the introduction to the book.


Baruch Shick was one of the early ‘reformers’ who was hanging out in Joshua Zeitlin’s mansion.

Remember this, from HERE?


Now, here‘s another interesting potential link:

Joshua Zeitlin (1742 in ShklovBelarus – August 18, 1822, in KhersonNovorossiya) was a Russian rabbinical scholar and philanthropist. He was a pupil of the Talmudist Rabbi Aryeh Leib ben Asher Gunzberg who was the author of Sha’agat Aryeh;


The Sha’agat Aryeh is a fabricated persona.

That doesn’t mean that he didn’t exist, but it DOES mean that I haven’t been able to track down any real details for him, in real life.

Now I’m reading this, and I’m starting to ponder:

Could Aryeh Leib Epstein (HaPardes), aka Aryeh Leib Katzenelenbogen (the Vilna Gaon’s bestest buddy), also be one and the same as Aryeh Leib, the Sha’agat Aryeh?

I started writing a very long post about all the lies being told about the Sha’agat Aryeh a few months ago, which I abandoned. Maybe, it’s time to revisit it, in light of all this new info.

Let’s continue, because we still didn’t get to the most weird bit of the story.



Jeremy Bentham’s visit

In 1787, the English philosopher, Jeremy Bentham, was going to visit his brother, Samuel in Krichev, when he spent the night in Slonim.

As he writes in his journal, all of the inns were full, so he was forced to spend the night with a rabbi who also kept a hardware store.

He goes on to describe the rabbi’s home and that he had two bookcases with “not fewer than 250 or 300 Vols.”. Bentham also talked about how the rabbi possessed a copy of Euclid’s Elements as well as a manuscript on astronomy which contained a diagram, that was the rabbi’s own work.


Say what?!?!

Since when did orthodox Rabbis in Eastern Europe just let random English philosophers stay in their house?!?

Say what?!?!

And not just any old non-Jewish philosopher, but Jeremy Bentham, the guy who endowed his body to the University of London to be dissected in the interests of science – on condition they’d hang his embalmed body in a glass case over the university entrance.

Apparently, it’s still there today. And even weirder, another condition Bentham made with the university is that his:

“body had to be present at all board meetings and deference paid to it by a salute of some sort at the beginning of each meeting.”

THIS is the guy, that Rav Kanievsky’s ancestor was hanging out with?!?

Say what?!?!?


One more thing that strikes me, is that it’s very possible that this ‘Shimshon ben Mordechai of Slonim’ is also made up, and could just be another coverstory for Aryeh Leib Epstein, aka the Sha’agat Aryeh.

Although here in the ‘real world’, it seems to be Shimshon that has the illustrious descendants, that really means nothing.

The rest of the story is just so 2-D – when it’s not outrageously fake – it’s pretty hard to imagine it could be a true biographical account.


Let’s stop there for now, although I could literally go on unpicking all the lies and distortions for months and years….

In case you haven’t realised it yet, they have been lying to us and deceiving about real Jewish history, and about who our leaders really were in the past, and who they really still might be today.

Probably, we’re not going to know who the Vilna Gaon really was, or why they are lying about people like ‘Shimshon ben Mordechai of Slonim’, nor why they are changing the names of so many of our Jewish leaders from the past wholesale, and expunging their genealogies – until Moshiach shows up.

But what I can tell you is this:

Don’t let a person’s yichus, or even their reputation for Torah learning fool you into brainlessly following a psak that is mamash endangering your life, and the life of your children and relatives.

Nothing is what it seems right now.


And the only clarity available right now, is that which comes from within your own soul.
