Just a short post, about ‘Fake News’ and how it presents itself in different ways.

Exhibit 1: A new post from the DailyExpose website, HERE.

The screenshot of the headline says it all:

====

Compare and contrast to THIS, from the Jpost, April 2021:

====

There are so many stories of pregnant women who lost their babies shortly after getting the ‘safe’ Covid shots.

I highly recommend they get together and start suing the Ministry of Health, the doctors and nurses who administered the shots – and of course, the lying, fake-news propaganda outlets like the Jpost, who kept telling them ‘the shots are safe’.

====

Exhibit 2: Another ‘re-enaction’ of the murder in Elad for the cameras

Screenshot and snippet from HERE:

The terrorists demonstrated how they first murdered Oren Ben-Yiftach, h’yd, inside his car and then waited there for hours until it grew dark. They then left the car and went down to the park, where they murdered Yonatan Chabakuk, h’yd, and Boaz Gal, h’yd. The police investigators reviewed and recorded every detail, including the terrorists’ escape route.

====

Really?!?

We’re expected to believe that they chopped a man to death in his WHITE car, in broad daylight, in such a brutal way that pictures from a few hours afterwards literally shows blood oozing out of the doors, then stayed in that car FOR HOURS, and no-one noticed?

In an earlier story from the fake-news YWN on what happened in Elad, they said this:

On Thursday, the terrorists called Oren Ben-Yiftach, h’yd, a Lod resident who worked as a driver, and told him that they needed to travel to Elad that night to do some emergency renovation work on a shul.

Ben-Yiftach, who was unaware that the two were entering Israel illegally, had driven them to Elad at least ten times in the past.

As they neared the shul, the terrorists attacked Ben-Yiftach with an ax and knife. He fought back but the two overcame and killed him and then exited the car to continue their rampage.

====

Again, I have no idea what’s really going on here.

But I am pointing out the obvious lies being told in connection with this story – together with the ‘re-enactment’ of the crime, which is totally unnecessary because THE WHOLE AREA WAS COVERED WITH POLICE CAMERAS ALREADY, and they can just go and look at that footage.

 

====

Which suggest something more is going on here, than meets the eye, and that yet again, the ‘news’ is being created to manipulate us in some way.

While I think about it…. it’s also beyond weird that the video of these two Arabs being ‘arrested’ after 60 hours apparently shows them in totally spotless clothes, with no blood anywhere.

Watch the video yourself HERE.

Some screenshots:

====

See how super-clean this ‘newly arrested’ terrorist looks, after chopping four people to death and attacking at least two more?

And here’s a shot of the axe – which is so clean and shiny, it’s flashing away in the sunlight:

====

So what are we to think….?

The police tracked them down in the forest…. arrested them…. handcuffed them…. them let them get all showered  up and let them change clothes to get rid of as much forensic evidence as possible… then gave them some cigarettes, and then took them back into the forest again, to show them where they hid the murder weapon – which was also incredibly ‘clean’ with no bloodstains on it?

Really?

Think for yourselves, people.

And don’t believe all the fake news we’re all being fed, 24/7.

Just when you think the State of Israel couldn’t possibly sink any lower….you discover you are totally wrong about that.

Off the back of THIS post, that started to uncover how so many of our “retired generals” in Israel are basically licking the butts of ‘Jews for Jesus’, mamash, I decided to take a closer look at what some of these ‘Jews for Jesus’ organisations and people are actually doing in Israel.

I have to say, I got pretty miserable.

Read on.

====

The first thing to tell you is that ‘Jews for Jesus’ figured out that was really bad branding, and that even the most secular Jew will baulk at that name.

So, they kind of ‘hide’ all the Yoshki stuff under the broader name of ‘messianics’, and then they also have a bunch of cute, fluffy-sounding projects in Israel that function as cover for their missionary activities.

If you go back to HERE, you’ll find a post on the old blog of Joel Chernoff from 2011, called ‘Messianic Jews and Aliyah!’

There, Chernoff is boasting how the State of Israel’s attitude to ‘Jews for Jesus’ is softening up, and how the country is letting more and more of these people flood in.

One of the comments to that blog post really caught my eye.

Here’s what it said:

====

What is the ‘Joseph Project’, that is causing the State of Israel to change it’s attitude towards ‘Jews for Jesus’ missionaries in Israel?

HERE is their website.

And screenshotted below, you can find testimonies from a bunch of Jews, thanking the ‘Jews for Jesus’ Joseph Project missionaries for all their ‘help’:

====

Maybe, you could argue that it’s not such a big deal for charity organisations like Shalva and Beit Issie Shapiro to receive money from ‘Jews for Jesus’.

After reading sickening comments from ‘Beit Issie Shapiro’ thanking these xtian missionaries for working for ‘spiritual and physical restoration of Israel’, I have to say I disagree.

But the fact that we have politicians and mayors sucking up to Jews for Jesus, mamash – is totally sickening and inappropriate.

And remember, we are dealing with XTIAN MISSIONARIES here, and as this video shows, they are also getting access to start indoctrinating our youth in the IDF, too.

====

Just listen to the ‘Shmuel’ from the Joseph Project, (above) talking about the project he’s leading with young adults who are post-army in Israel.

Listen to all the xtian-missionary phrases tumbling out of his mouth.

While the ‘anti-Torah’ Freemason-Frankists running this country attack any attempt to promote Judaism as ‘pushing religion’ on people, they are mamash inviting xtian missionaries into the country to promote xtianity any way they can.

Are you starting to see how this works?

====

In case you think ‘the Joseph Project’ and Joel Chernoff are unusual one-offs, the really bad news is that they aren’t.

There’s a ‘Messianic Jewish’ news site called: Israeltoday.co.il

(This site is also where I found information about that bunch of Jews for Jesus in Talpiot, and the ‘xtian’ background of the Megaleh Amukot, that I wrote about HERE.)

Most of its stories are behind a pay wall, but here’s the top snippet of a story that caught my eye, which in turn helped me to figure out just how widespread all these ‘Jews for Jesus’ organisations really in the State of Israel

Troubles began two years ago when a few Messianic Jewish leaders reported to the Hebrew-speaking Leadership Conference on what they saw as troubling theological positions being promoted by a ministry called Tikkun.

Based in Jerusalem, Tikkun has planted and oversees numerous local Hebrew and Russian speaking congregations in Israel. Their leadership remain highly respected by both Messianic Jews in Israel and Christians abroad.

====

When you click on that link for the Tikkun website, you see things like this:

====

Puke!

But more importantly, these sites also contain links to their Jews for Jesus ‘ministries’ and projects they have going on in the Holy Land.

‘Tikkun’ alone has 19 missionizing churches – specifically aimed at Jews – all over the country.

Here’s a screenshot:

====

And don’t think they aren’t focussing in on the kids and young people – because they are.

On the Youth page of Tikkun, you find links to missionary organisations operating out of Jerusalem like NETIVAH, below.

Please, take the time to watch this. It’s two minutes long, but it encapsulates what’s really going on here – they are planting missionaries in schools and in the IDF, amongst many other places.

====

I am finding all this so disturbing, it’s literally giving me a headache.

====

Meanwhile, if we go back to Joel Chernoff’s ‘Messianic Jewish Alliance of America‘ – the people behind things like ‘The Joseph Project’ – we discover they also have a massive network of missionary churches and organisations across Israel, too.

This screenshot comes from HERE:

250 missionaries heading up ‘Jews for Jesus’ organisations in Israel!!!

And again, this is just the tip of a monstrous iceberg. And some of the heads of this snake are also pretty ‘frum’.

Here’s another screenshot, from a ‘Jews for Jesus’ organisation in Israel called Hashivenu:

====

When I googled ‘Asher Intrater’ – leader of the Tikkun bunch of missionaries in Israel – I got to HERE.

It’s a site covering ‘Messianic Community in Israel’ news.

It also has a ‘Ministry Directory’ of affiliated groups and organisations in Israel – again, just for Tikkun – which stretches on for 20 pages….

Here’s a screenshot:

====

Deep, deep sigh.

These people are everywhere.

And the State of Israel – it’s generals, it’s politicians, it’s bureaucrats, even it’s rabbis – are sucking up to them and giving them full support to ‘missionize’ the Jews, all the while pretending that the State of Israel is a Jewish country.

Those missionaries pretending to be Jews in French Hill were literally just the very smallest tip of what is really going on in this country.

====

Watch this – future PM of Israel, Yair Lapid, being interviewed by his ‘good friend’ on the Evangelical ‘All Israel’ news:

(Listen from the 8th minute on, when he refers to evangelical xtians as his brothers and his sisters and starts mamash sucking up them. Have you ever heard him say something like this about Chareidi Jews?)

====

Yair Lapid’s sister-in-law was an openly practising ‘messianic’ xtian in Israel.

Snippet from HERE:

Lapid fought in the past against a law which would restrict missionary activity in Israel, despite the fact that his father, Tommy Lapid, supported such a law.

Yair Lapid claimed in 2015 that Moshe Gafni, who proposed the law, was “trying to fulfill my father’s last testament” but claimed that his father “had changed his mind” on the matter.

The law would have closed the Messianic community in which Lapid’s brother-in law and sister-in-law were members and it appears that this may have been the source of Lapid’s opposition to the law.

====

This guy is the second-in-command in the State of Israel, and is set to take over as PM very soon.

What that really means, is that the ‘mask’ that these people are Jews, and support a Jewish state, and respect Judaism, and our Torah is about to totally come off.

That’s actually a good thing.

Because then, more and more of us will start to realise who we are really dealing with, and why the ‘State of Israel’ is probably the most openly anti-semitic, anti-Chareidi, and anti-Torah force in the world today.

(And probably, it’s been that way right from the beginning…)

====

The Rav, Rav Berland is holding an atzeret by the Kotel tonight, at 8.30pm (May 10th, 2022).

If you can make it, please come.

I’ve been to many of these prayer gatherings, and the Rav only ever calls them when there are some big ‘judgments’ hanging over the Jewish people that need to be sweetened.

We are under attack, from without and within, like never before.

Xtians, Jews-for-Jesus ‘messianics’, Sabbateans, Freemason-Frankists – the list just keeps growing longer and longer, and honestly, Iran and home-grown terrorists are barely getting a look in at this point, as more and more of us are realising they are just the ‘puppets’ holding the guns and axes, while the real evil people pull their strings from behind the curtain.

==

Tonight is Netzach she b’Netzach, in the counting of the Omer.

Breslov teaching holds that this is the ‘day of Rabbenu’, Rebbe Nachman, when everything can be fixed, even past gilgulim.

So, it’s a very meaningful time to be holding an atzeret at the Kotel, with the Rav in attendance.

And boy, do we need some sweetening and fixing.

All week, I’ve been wondering how you’re meant to register for L’ag B’omer in Meron.

***UPDATES***

This morning, I finally got sent a link on how to do that – and everything is totally booked up already.

You can have 5 billion people show up for a crappy concert of some crappy singer in Tel Aviv; 5 billion people show up to line the route for ‘marathons’ and bike rides all over the city of Jerusalem on a Friday morning; 5 billion show up for more ‘Yom Ha’atzmaut’ propaganda shows up and down the country…. and no-one bats an eyelid, especially the police.

Take a look at what happened in Elad on Yom Ha’atzmaut on L’ag B’omer.

====

My kids followed the story in Hebrew, so got way more details then they let drip out on English language propaganda-news sites, like YWN.

So, while the YWN has headlines like THIS – which tell part of the story:

They somehow forgot to tell their audience other crucial details.

====

Like:

The police were called immediately these terrorists started trying to chop people to death with axes.

Hashem Yerachem.

And it took the police MORE THAN FIVE MINUTES TO SHOW UP.

By which time, the terrorists had already had ample time to kill and wound a lot of people, Hashem should avenge their blood.

====

That’s not all that ‘went wrong’ in Elad.

I’ve been writing for months and months and months about how the whole of Eretz Israel is now covered in hi-tech, 5….G facial recognition cameras – and this equipment is especially and particularly all over the parks.

This attack happened in a busy park in Elad.

The cameras were up and operating.

How do I know that?

Simple. You can even see them in shots of the Ibn Gabirol St park on Google Earth, taken before Yom Ha’atzmaut:

====

Anyone can clearly see the 5….G facial recognition cameras, and cute ‘Directed Energy Weapon / Active Denial’ horns-disguised-as-speakers, exactly like they used to kill 45 people in cold blood in Meron, last L’ag B’omer.

I zoomed in on the right hand speakers from Elad in the picture below.

You can clearly see an array of 4 white horn speakers placed above the 5…G facial recognition camera in Elad, below:

====

Compare and contrast with the Active Denial gear we saw in Meron, last L’ag B’omer:

====

And yet still…. it took the police 5 whole minutes to come, while a bunch of people got chopped to death in the Ibn Gabirol park by axe-wielding terrorists.

Really?

====

I went to look up the address of the main police station in Elad.

It’s apparently on ‘R Yehuda HaNasi Street’:

====

Then, I stuck ‘R Yehuda Ha-Nasi Street’ into Google Earth, and measured the distance between the main area where the police station is apparently located, and the park on Ibn Gabirol Street where the axe murders took place:

It’s less than half a kilometre away.

How on earth could it have taken the Elad police more than five minutes to have shown up at the park, in which time the terrorists had already murdered 3 people, seriously injured 4 more – and also managed to run away?

Really?

Go to Google Earth and do the ‘street view’ of R Yehuda HaNasi street for yourself. You’ll see the big, wide, modern, two lane street that segues directly into Ibn Gabirol Street.

It makes totally no sense that it took the police 5 minutes to show up at that location, when the police station is located less than half a kilometre away.

Someone could even have walked there faster.

====

There’s even more that went ‘wrong’ in Elad.

I’m waiting for the name, so I can verify independently, but one of my daughters told me straight after the attack that one of the deputy mayors of Elad was interviewed – and he was furious about what had happened.

Apparently, this deputy mayor had warned that Elad was at risk of a terror attack weeks before it happened, because of the huge wave of building in the city that was bringing a lot of Palestinian workers into the city, unsupervised.

Again, I don’t take ANYTHING at face value, these days, so I am waiting for the name, so I can properly check this out, and come to a view about what might really be going on here, but my daughter told me that this deputy mayor was so concerned, he started stopping and checking cars himself last month – until the police in Elad stopped him.

And then, they opened a case against him for disrupting the work of the police.

I will verify the details of this story once I have more details.

Either the deputy mayor was mamash a prophet…. or he had an inkling that something was coming down the pipe, for the poor residents of Elad, another way.

====

Watch THIS video of the Shabak apparently capturing the terrorists in the forest of Elad, apparently after ‘6o hours’, and apparently having them show them exactly where they tossed the axe in the undergrowth – which they could apparently remember super clearly, and which apparently it never crossed the terrorist’s minds to try and bury or hide or destroy the murder weapon – and come to your own conclusions, about how much of this story makes sense.

====

Watch all the State of Israel’s paid rabbinic patsies put out rulings about bringing guns to synagogue on Shabbat (!) – and understand that once again, the religious public is being ‘set up’ here.

====

And in the meantime.

Let’s return to Meron, which is nearly always crawling with police, who apparently have nothing better to do than to beat up chareidi Jews trying to pray there.

For the first time in ten years, me and my husband can’t get to Meron for L’ag B’omer.

Why?

Because the police deliberately killed 45 people in cold blood last year (on the orders of our previous PM…), and are now using these murders as an excuse to take down the whole of L’ag B’omer.

While the ‘rational retards’ in our midst are still arguing the toss about whether angels – and evil – really exist, the Freemason-Frankists who are running this country from behind the scenes are totally cognisant of the spiritual power of our true tzaddikim, like Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai.

That’s why they are going after the true tzaddikim with all their might.

====

How much longer do you think God is going to put up with all this, that is the question?

Judging by what happened to the late Miriam Naor – previous head of the ‘cover-up what really happened in Meron’ investigation committee, until she unexpectedly croaked a few months’ ago – not very much longer.

And in the meantime….

The spiritual corruption of the State of Israel, and the institutions within it, continues to grow each day.

But the cup of wickedness is almost full.

====

UPDATE:

Reader Becky posted the link to the interview with the politician in Elad, who complained a month ago about the lack of security in the city.

You can see it in the Hebrew HERE:

====

As is my way, I went to look up if I could find out more about Yaniv Badalov, the guy mentioned above.

Bizarrely, I got to his Youtube channel HERE.

Here’s the Yom Atzmaut video he posted from 11 months ago (although it says they are celebrating the 72nd Independence Day, which is 2 years ago… when we were all locked down. So not sure what’s going on there.)

Description:

The National Religious [Dati Leumi] community in Elad celebrates independence 72 years ago. Yishai Lapidot and friends host the mayor-Rabbi Yisrael Porush ,the rabbi of the community – Barb Nachshon Shlit”A, the council member – Adv. Yaniv Badalov and more…

HERE is his law firm, in Elad:

====

Now, another strange connection is between Elad and former Major General Gal Hirsch.

Gal Hirsch carried the can for the failures of ‘Lebanon II’ under Dan Helutz and Ehud Olmert (remember them?!)

You can read more about him HERE.

But then he popped up in Elad to ‘volunteer’ to oversee the Covid 19 ‘response’ for Homeland Security, which you can read all about HERE, on a long piece he wrote as part of his role as an affiliate with the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism, based in Herzliyya.

If you go HERE, you’ll find lots of former senior ‘police and army’ people hanging out at the ICT, from across the world.

At this stage, I don’t find that reassuring.

I have no idea who is funding the ICT, either.

(I mean, specifically….)

Here’s what it says on the About page:

ICT is a non-profit organization located at the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC), Herzliya, Israel which relies exclusively on private donations and revenue from events, projects and programs.

====

Yeah, it’s a cut-out.

But a cut-out for who?

That is the question.

====

To get back to Gal Hirsch, he apparently built up the Georgian army after leaving the IDF; got probed for tax evasion; and headed up the failed ‘Magen’ party which ran in the 2019 elections in Israel.

Before all that, he was going to get nominated as Police Commissioner for the State of Israel back in 2015, but then a bunch of scandals magically erupted to stop all that from happening.

====

When he was running as head of the ‘Magen’ party, one of his political puff pieces ran in the Jpost HERE, where I found out he’s also connected to something calling itself the Israel Leadership Institute.

If you click on that link, you’ll find another website staffed by a bunch of ex-IDF elites, talking about raising the next generation of leaders in Israel, with links to a bunch of xtians back in the States.

They have a charity set up specifically in the US, too, called The Israel Leadership Institute North-America.

====

I’d love to tell you what they really do, and who is really funding them.

But I can’t.

Here’s a screenshot from one of their workshops:

====

Eeki Elner is the founder of this organisation, and is another former IDF guy – who keeps showing up in ‘messianic’ contexts on the web.

Like this, from HERE:

====

And also, this popped up HERE:

====

I went to check out who ‘Joel Chernoff‘ is –  found an old blog for him HERE.

This comes from the About section there:

Joel has many different roles within the Messianic movement; he is the General Secretary of the Messianic Jewish Alliance of America (MJAA), and Vice President of the International Messianic Jewish Alliance (IMJA).

Since 1915, the Messianic Jewish Alliance of America is the single largest association of Messianic Jewish and Gentile believers in Yeshua in the world.

In his role as General Secretary of the MJAA Joel is responsible for providing over $85 million worth of humanitarian aid to Israel; creating means for needy Russian Jews to make aliyah or immigrate to Israel; as well as dig fresh water wells and coordinate humanitarian aid efforts to reach more than 50 third world villages of Messianic Jewish people in Ethiopia.

====

$85 million bucks!

No wonder all these former IDF people are chewing his hand off.

As you can probably tell, I now have way more to research again.

At this stage, I have no idea what’s really going on here.

But hopefully, God will enlighten us all soon, one way or another.

====

Last week when I went to get my challah from the bakery, there was an interesting conversation going on around rising prices of bread.

The nice French baker was explaining to a woman who was complaining about the price of the challah going up, that 70% of Israel’s wheat comes from the Ukraine – and the war in the Ukraine means that wheat apparently isn’t getting here right now, sending wheat prices rocketing.

I kind of filed the info away at the back of my mind – no point worrying, until I have to – and then this week, I went to get flour from my local supermarket, so my kid could make challah at home.

They had three bags left, all the ‘weird’ stuff that most people don’t bake with (but which actually was OK for me, as I use all sorts of weird, wholemeal flours.)

It looks like things are starting to hit closer to home, here in Israel.

====

I’m still not engaging with the news here hardly at all, but my kid told me there was a pigua in Elad yesterday, with three people killed and three injured.

I can’t help but think that the shmira, the protection, that the State of Israel used to enjoy from our enemies is waning.

We are so used to open miracles, that having multiple people die and be injured in these terror attacks is still kind of shocking, although of course that has happened in the past.

Most notably, during the Second Intifada, when evil Peres and a bunch of other murderous Sabbatean-Frankists were trying to ‘give away’ parts of Eretz Yisrael.

God didn’t like that.

And today, we have this whole radical LGBT123+++ whatever, ‘trans’, immorality-pushing agenda going on everywhere (not to mention all the horrible things happening behind closed doors in every corner of our community, even the most ‘frum’).

And that’s exactly why Bilaam advised the Midianites to try and engage the Jewish people in tumah – immorality and idol worship – because he knew that THIS is guaranteed to separate the Jewish people from God, and His protection.

And he was right.

====

But there are also glimmers of light on the horizon.

Another kid told me that people are leaving the Israeli police in droves, to the point that the police here is really starting to struggle to find enough cops for regular duties.

Personally, I’m thrilled.

Those ‘regular duties’ have included fining people for walking too far away from their homes, fining people for trying to breathe fresh air, and lest we forget, deliberately murdering religious people like Ahuvya Sandek, and the 45 holy martyrs of Meron.

And it’s not just the frum community who hate and distrust the police here and levels never before seen.

Most people, in most places in Israel, now distrust and dislike the police at a visceral level.

And the police can feel that public hostility – and that’s also why so many of them are now quitting.

So, the principle of midda-kneged-midda is starting to kick in here, and the ruling elite who thought they could use the police as their own personal security force over Covid 19, and in other ways, are starting to understand that after all, the public here has a limit to what they would tolerate.

And we passed it, a long time ago.

====

The last thing to tell you, is that the same corrupt police and judiciary who murdered Ahuvya, and used Directed Energy Weapons to create a death trap at Meron last L’ag B’omer – and who covered all this up – are still going after the people close to Rav Berland.

One of his close gabbaim has been told that if doesn’t pay a million shekel fine for the ‘crime’ of enabling people to pay pidyonot to the Rav, the State of Israel is going to send him to prison for two years.

So far, he’s managed to raise half a million shekels, but the court has said if he can’t raise the full thing – he’s going to prison for two years.

If you can help, please get in touch via the contact form.

But you see what I mean?

How is it possible to not dislike and distrust people who act like this, and the institutions they serve?

TBC

This morning it’s blowing a gale again in Jerusalem.

***UPDATES***

In fact, it’s been really windy the last 4-5 days, on and off, in a way that feels very meaningful.

These are the winds of change.

Because more and more of us are starting to wake up, and starting to realise that things CANNOT go on the way they have been.

On so many levels.

====

Following on from THIS post, about how the anti-Torah Frankist-Freemasons are now turning their attention to a full-on ‘trans’ assault within the orthodox Jewish world, continuing their efforts to ‘shatter orthodoxy’ from within, I got sent another email telling me about someone called ‘Yaakov Smith’.

Here’s a little of what it said:

In 1989, I spent a few weeks in the Old City and a lot of time hanging out with residents and Aish families.
One of the most charismatic figures I met was someone named Yaakov Smith, married with six children from toddler to young teenager. They mekaved many.
At a time when Aish’s Discovery seminar was still 4 days long and very intense, he and his wife taught several classes.
Only some months after we met, they got divorced. Later, he came out as homosexual.
Anyway, long story short, today he is known as Yiscah Smith. He’s on the faculty of Pardes.
====

(Warning: it’s another ‘diet aid’ alert!)

Here he is today:

====

Man, how many times is God going to put up with ‘orthodox institutions’ spitting in the face of His Torah?

I don’t just mean individuals who think they know better than God which gender they are meant to be.

I mean the whole ‘open orthodoxy’ / modern orthodox movement as a whole, which really should be more honest, and rename itself:

FRUM REFORM

Because that’s what it really is.

====

Let’s pop the lid on the ‘Pardes Institute of Jewish Learning’, and see what ucky creatures slither out.

First, let me draw your attention to their newly updated ‘S*xual Harassment Prevention’ code, which you can see HERE.

Here’s their working definition of s*xual harassment:

B. Key Definitions and Israeli Law

S*xual harassment is unwelcome conduct of a s*xual nature.

It includes s*xual advances, requests for s*xual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a s*xual nature, when:

o Submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly in connection with a person’s ability to participate fully in their education;
o Submission to or rejection of such conduct is used as a basis for academic decisions affecting the individual; or
o Such conduct interferes with an individual’s academic performance or creates an intimidating, hostile or demeaning environment.

S*xual harassment also includes sexual violence, which refers to sexual acts that are against a person’s will or where a person is incapable of giving consent.

S*xual harassment can take many forms, physical, psychological, or verbal…

====

Here’s another snippet:

C. The Right to Self-Define Gender

1. Individuals have the right to define their own gender, and should be treated and referred to accordingly.
2. All-gender bathrooms are available on each floor. Additionally, each individual is entitled to define their own gender for the purposes of bathrooms.
3. When participating in the mechitza minyan, individuals can sit on the side that best conforms to their gender identity as they define it.
4. Each minyan has the right to define its criteria for counting towards the minyan. The egalitarian minyan counts anyone who is Jewish according to any major denomination, irrespective of gender identity.

The mechitza minyan counts trans-men who have undergone genital surgery. Every individual is trusted to present themselves faithfully as counting with respect to gender and halakhic status.

People will refrain from asking particular members intrusive questions in order to determine halachic status.

5. On Pardes overnight trips, students will be assigned to share rooms with members of their same gender. In cases where gender identity may cause discomfort for anyone, students may request roommates in a way that is comfortable for all in the room.

====

It seems to me that an orthodox Jew learning at Pardes is being subjected to ‘s*xual harassment’ non-stop by this institution.

Let’s replay the definition:

S*xual harassment is unwelcome conduct of a s*xual nature.

It includes s*xual advances, requests for s*xual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a s*xual nature, when:

o Submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly in connection with a person’s ability to participate fully in their education;
o Submission to or rejection of such conduct is used as a basis for academic decisions affecting the individual; or
o Such conduct interferes with an individual’s academic performance or creates an intimidating, hostile or demeaning environment.

====

Woe betide any female student who is uncomfortable using a bathroom together with a man dressed as a woman….

Woe betide any God-fearing Jew who is trying to find out if that ‘guy’ next to him really counts towards a minyan…

Woe betide any man or woman who doesn’t want to spend a night ‘rooming’ with the opposite sex….

Just try complaining about how your right to pray, pee or sleep in a genuinely Torah-observant way is being compromised by Pardes’ rules, and then you’ll quickly see that if you don’t ‘submit’ to Pardes conduct, against your will, you will:

  • find your ‘ability to participate fully’ in your education curtailed;
  • your conduct will be used as a ‘basis for academic decisions affecting’ you – and for sure-
  • you’ll instantly be plunged into a ‘intimidating, hostile and demeaning environment’.

Whaddya mean, you can’t room overnight with ‘Jake’?!?!?!?

Whaddya mean, that Joseph-ine doesn’t count in a minyan?!?!?!?

What sort of barbaric, bigoted, criminal person ARE YOU, exactly?!?!?

====

Sigh.

This is FRUM REFORM in action.

And why you should care, is because this institution is boasting on its website that:

[T]he Pardes Educators Program was created with the assistance of the Avi Chai Foundation and today produces more Jewish day school teachers than any other program.

These brainwashed ‘frum reform’ teachers from Pardes could be the ones teaching your kids in all those ‘dati leumi’ schools….

No wonder so few of my daughter’s ‘dati leumi-educated’ friends still believe in God, or still hold by the morality set out in the Torah.

Sigh again.

====

So, who’s funding the Pardes Institute?

Let’s head over to the History page HERE, to try to figure that out.

Snippet:

Pardes began with the unacknowledged support of the World Zionist Organization, which provided the physical facility and overhead, with salaries coming from student tuition. This arrangement continued until 1987, when the Institute became an independent, self-sustaining entity.

So, right from the beginning the secular, Zionist, Frankist State of Israel was behind this organisation.

Quelle surprise.

Today, the Avi Chai Foundation seems to be giving Pardes a lot of money, especially to train their ‘frum reform’ teachers to indoctrinate your children with anti-Torah tumah.

You can find the ‘Avi Chai Foundation’ website HERE.

The ‘About’ page is full of the usual weasel-words about being committed to the Jewish people and the State of Israel, blahdy blah, but really…. it smacks of yet another ‘Frankist-Freemason’ cut-out, designed to ‘shatter orthodoxy from within’, by subverting the next generation of Jewish teachers.

====

So, what can you and me really do about all this?

Bottom line, for all the ‘fancy words’ and ‘political correctness’, most people are actually moral cowards, sheeple, who will ‘go with the flow’ because they are worried about paying their bills and covering their mortgage.

For as long as ‘the stick’ is only on one side of this equation – i.e. people worry that they will be fired, ostracised, banned from completing their studies at places like Pardes for not following the ‘trans’ propaganda, 99% of them will fall into line.

But, if more of us start to complain to our schools – more of us start to make a fuss, and to really start questioning whether ANY school that considers itself to be genuinely ‘orthodox’ should be accepting FRUM REFORM-indoctrinated teachers from places like Pardes…. then this will start to change.

And when more of us stop playing these people’s Orwellian word games – stop calling them ‘orthodox’, when they really, really aren’t, they aren’t ‘open orthodox’, or ‘modern orthodox’, they are FRUM REFORM – then that will also start to be a big game-changer.

====

Most people don’t question how ‘orthodox’ these institutions really are, when they see the word ‘orthodox’ in their descriptor.

Yeah, it could be ‘open orthodox’, or ‘modern orthodox’ – that’s enough to make us think these people respect the Torah and at least might be truly God-fearing.

That’s why they insist on retaining the ‘orthodox’ bit in their titles.

But once we understand we are dealing with FRUM REFORM…..everything changes.

In an instant, we understand that there are NO ‘orthodox female rabbis’ out there, just FRUM REFORM ‘Rabbas’ and ‘Rabbanits’.

And that no truly God-fearing, orthodox institution is pushing the trans agenda – but tons of FRUM REFORM institutions are doing the bidding of their Frankist-funders, to ‘shatter orthodoxy’ from within.

====

So, get the definitions straight in your head.

And don’t be scared to start pushing back against all these PC ‘Frum-Reformers’ who like to pretend they represent orthodox Judaism.

They don’t.

And for our children’s sake, we need to start telling them that very loudly.

====

PS: When I was browsing the Pardes faculty page HERE, I came across this entry:

The ‘Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance‘ – JOFA – is also very connected to FRUM REFORM’s flagship ‘yeshiva’ for frum reform-smicha of women, YESHIVAT MAHARAT (that we talked about in the last post.)

And Koren books is happily publishing all this FRUM REFORM propaganda, from FRUM REFORM ‘rabbanits’, while still pretending they are an orthodox imprint.

You see how this works?

Ad matai, Tatty?

UPDATE:

I got an interesting email from Chananya Weissman on the topic of  his experience with ‘ortho fems’, much of which I’m sharing below, with permission.

==

Right before covid craziness took over the world, in the very beginning of 2020 was the most recent Daf Yomi siyum.

There was a big buzz in the “Jewish media” about women finishing the cycle in record numbers. All the coverage of this was favorable, naturally, with nary a question about why this was happening, for what reasons, who was behind this trend, and if this was a positive development with no conceivable downside.
I did a little digging and quickly found this was being driven by feminist entities that were on the very fringes of Orthodoxy even if we were to be generous.
I wrote an article exposing this and raising concerns about the women’s Daf Yomi movement, which I posted on my blog at the Slimes of Israel. The Jewish Press published a slightly edited version.
[Ed. note: I probably would…. ortho fems are still probably the most nutso of all the interesting people I’ve crossed swords with here on the blog, not least because they are so self-righteous, hypocritical, arrogant and quick to stoop to dirty tactics to shut you up.]
====

I don’t think I ever wrote something that went so viral, so quickly.

The Times of Israel article was shared thousands of times, far more than anything I ever posted there. There were long threads all over Facebook. The Jewish Press devoted a whole section in the letters to the editor just to responses to this article, after someone urged people to bombard them with angry letters.
Not surprisingly, almost all the reactions were overwhelmingly negative, filled with the usual personal attacks, vulgarity, straw men, emotional reactions, and attempts to cancel me.
Some people contacted me privately and thanked me stating what they were thinking, but the public reaction was a torch-bearing mob.

Most of these seemed to come from “modern Orthodox” women in Beit Shemesh and Efrat, as well as completely irreligious people and even non-Jews, who suddenly were all in favor of Gemara study.

==

One “rabbi” from Efrat wrote a long Facebook post against me, filled with specious arguments and personal attacks, that drew a lot of attention and was also printed in the Jewish Press….

The Slimes of Israel eventually banned me from posting on their blogs after I criticized one of their darlings, Benny Lau. I didn’t even name him, just noted that he was a token rabbi at the feminist Daf Yomi siyum. That was simply too much for the Slimes of Israel, who do not tolerate any less than respectful remarks against any rabbi, of course…
[Ed. note: Benny Lau – and his father, Meir Lau  – descend from the notorious SHOR family I keep mentioning on this blog. Quelle surprise.]
==
I’ve continued to hammer the feminists and their ilk ever since, and encourage everyone to wake up and get in the game.
This garbage is a real threat to the Jewish people, and even people who aren’t personally affected (or don’t think they are) need to speak out and make it clear this trash is not kosher, period.
Here are the links:
====
Ad kan, from R’ Weissman.

Ladies, it’s really up to us to stand up to the ortho fems, because they can’t just smear us with the same ‘sexist’ tactics they generally use with everyone else.

I’m not a man. I’m not a self-hating woman. I’m also very educated, and articulate, and not just chained to my kitchen sink washing dishes and having babies.
And I still think that all this ‘ortho fem’ stuff is totally poisonous, and just out to ‘shatter orthodoxy’ from within.
The Women of the Wall are wielding their Torah scroll, like a battering ram at the Kotel, and all these ‘PC’, abortion-pushing, trans gender embracing ‘rabbas’ are wielding their ‘smicha’ in the classroom and online, to try and batter down our traditions and our children’s morality.

But with God’s help, we will overcome.

What’s going on right now is a massive opportunity for the Jewish community to finally fix the sin of ‘sinat chinam’.

And God is inviting each of us to do a bit of that ‘fixing’ in our own back yard.

Now that we know that ‘yichus’ actually has nothing to do with how easy or hard we find it to serve Hashem, really – in both directions – that  means that the whole shebang actually boils down to this:

Free choice, and working on our own bad middot.

I.e. whoever we are, there is still everything to play for.

And whoever we are, there are still choices that we ourselves can make, to really build the world, work on our own bad middot and rebuild the Temple – in our hearts.

And no-one is excluded from this work, not even ‘the biggest tzaddikim’, who have far more responsibility than us average Joes, for setting an example, in the area of cultivating true humility, and acknowledging their own bad middot.

====

Baruch Hashem, Rav Eliezer Berland is a paradigm for this ‘real’ approach to avodat Hashem.

And Rabbenu, Rebbe Nachman, set the example for this, too, when he encouraged his student Rav Natan to write books like Chayei Moharan that really depicted Rabbenu’s struggles to work on himself, and overcome his own bad middot, and to uproot his ta’avot – lusts.

That was one of the biggest selling points of Breslov for me, all those years ago, that finally, I had a Tzaddik who I could relate to as a real human being – and who could also relate to me, and my struggles.

====

I had a lot of issues with bad depressions and feelings of totally yeoush, before I hit Breslov.

And then, I started reading about how Rabbenu sometimes also had days when he despaired, and couldn’t carry on talking to God because of it…. but how he always picked himself up, broke through that yeoush and returned to Hashem.

Rabbenu had been there before me – and he charted the way to get out of all the bad middot, and the sadness, and the despair and all the other issues that prevent us from serving Hashem and building the world by refining our own characters.

And that information forms the real foundation of his teachings.

And Rav Berland is carrying on where Rabbenu left off.

====

Below, I’m going to bring a translated excerpt of R’ Natan’s Likutei Halachot, which lays out some very important ideas about ‘free choice’, in connection with the True Tzaddikim and overcoming the Erev Rav.

Before I do that, tho, I want to tell you about a bar mitzvah I went to yesterday, in a penthouse overlooking the beach in the Gush Dan area.

====

We have close family who made aliya last year, and it was their son’s barmitzvah.

Our family members are not ‘frum’, and down the years, we have had massive clashes and blow-ups around just about every family gathering you can imagine, beginning with my own wedding, and then snaking through a bunch of other weddings, funerals, stone settings – and even, my ‘good bye’ party, which my in-laws decided to hold in the 9 days, totally against my wishes.

Long story short, most of these ‘family gatherings’ have resulted in the sort of acrimony and bitterness that would make what happened with Kamtza and Bar Kamtza look like child’s play.

And so…. the barmitzvah appeared on the horizon.

But this time, things were totally different.

====

Over the last few years, me and my husband have paid innumerable pidyonot to the Rav, on behalf of ourselves and other family members, to try to ‘heal’ so much of what has gone wrong.

Those pidyons have worked in big and small ways – to the point that even our ‘unreligious’ family members have paid a pidyon or two, now, as well.

And yesterday, we could all see the effect of what happens when you connect to the True Tzaddikim, and also make an effort to identify and work on your own bad middot.

====

The barmitzvah and party were held in the Omer, at the time when you’re not meant to attend gatherings with live music.

The party was a ‘cocktail party’ – in every since of the word! – and totally not the sort of thing that me and my husband like, or are suited to.

In the past, my yetzer would have been working overtime, giving me justifications for why we shouldn’t go, why we definitely shouldn’t dance, why we definitely shouldn’t approve of all the OTT gashmius and untznius behavior, etc.

This time, I had one clear message in  my head:

This is family, and family are celebrating a big milestone in their son’s life, and instead of thinking about yourself, the whole time, Rivka, in your super-duper-holy-way, why don’t you think about what you can do for them, and the barmitzvah boy, instead?

====

And this insight mamash changed the whole picture.

Instead of sitting in the corner dissing everything and everyone the whole night, and feeling holier-than-thou, I decided I’m going to do my best to really celebrate that barmitzvah with our extended family, even though we were way out of our comfort zone.

Because what’s the point of coming, just to sit in a corner with a sour face and making my hosts feel bad about themselves, and their celebration – and us?

====

It’s only today, the morning after, that I realised just how ‘big a deal’ yesterday was – because make no mistake, it was still very hard not to fall back into the mindset of ‘Kamtza and Bar Kamtza’, while we were there.

Some close friend of the hosts from the UK stuck his hand out to me to shake when we were introduced, and I saw the look of panic flit across my brother-in-law’s face, because in the past, I have flat-out refused to shake hands with people back in the home country, no matter how embarrassed that made them.

This time – I shook hands.

And chalked it up to mesirut nefesh for shalom bayit.

And I still got overwhelmed by things like the saxophone-playing young woman with pink hair and tight black leather, and indulged in a bit of ‘quiet tutting’ before I got over myself again, and just found somewhere else to go and sit, where I didn’t have to eyeball her.

====

In these small, myriad ways, me and my husband did our bit, to fix the sin of sinat chinam.

And on the other side of the equation, my sister-in-law did her bit, too, by accepting us totally as we were – with payot, headscarves and totally NO cocktail dress, and with strictly kosher food, and with an understanding that we should come as we were, with no other instructions about how to behave or dress.

It’s huge.

As I type these words, I really feel how ‘huge’ it was, yesterday, because there has barely been a family get-together that has no resulted in all out, acrimonious warfare for 25 years, since my husband first got ‘frum’.

====

And now, here’s Rav Natan, writing about the Erev Rav, and free choice, and how we can really only uncover that ‘free choice’ to overcome our own bad middot when we’re connected to the True Tzaddikim.

Enjoy!

====

Likutei Halachot – The Laws of Blessings on Smell and Blessings of Thanks (4, 33)

This is an aspect of what we have seen, something confusing and strange, from which everyone is astounded. That after the Nation of Israel merited to receive the Torah, with such wonderous signs. And everyone merited ruach hakodesh etc. After all this, to hear that they acted in such a way, to sin by going after the golden calf…

And even though it wasn’t the Nation of Israel who did this, but rather the Erev Rav, afterwards some of the Nation of Israel did sin.

Nonetheless, even the few of the few who made this mistake, what was going on with them?

==

And even on the Erev Rav themselves there is still a difficulty, because even the Erev Rav had a huge spiritual awareness, as is apparent from the writings of the Arizal.

And certainly, even in them there was some small good, since they followed Moshe out of Egypt and threw away their families and households, and wanted to convert, since they saw tremendous signs and wonders from Moshe Rabbenu in Egypt.

And after all of this, after all the tremendous wonders that they saw with their own eyes in Egypt, and the splitting of the Sea and the war with Amalek and the Giving of the Torah with such tremendous signs and wonders, like its written ‘the great signs which you saw with your eyes, and the signs and wonders, etc.’

And after all this to do such an act, to make a calf for themselves as a god…[!?]

==

But, from all this, each of us can understand just how much free choice we all have, and just how much the Sitra Achra can overcome a person every day, because Hashem Who is Blessed created everything for the sake of free choice, because everything was created for the sake of man. Not for the sake of the angels.

And so too, the opposite, not for the sake of the animals or the plants, etc.

Simply, everything was made for the sake of man, from the beginning to end.

And the main thing is that man has free choice, because it is for this which is his work which is of so great importance, far more than the work of the angels, since they do not have free choice, and a man does have free choice. And it was for this that Hashem created everything, from start to finish.

==

So, it turns out that everything was created for the sake of free choice, and therefore free choice has great power.

So much so, that Hashem Himself, so to speak, is not able to cancel the free choice without cancelling the world.

Like our sages said, ‘everything is in the hands of heaven, except for the Fear of Heaven’.

And, on account of the greatness of free choice, for which everything was created, therefore the Sitra Achra has the power to overcome each time anew with all types of new confusions and ways to lead astray, such that he had the power to overcome Israel after the Giving of the Torah, so that they would create the golden calf.

And all of this happened because Moshe Rabbenu was absent from them and wasn’t among them.

So, the Satan confused the world until the made the golden calf, like it says there in the parasha, ‘and the people saw that Moshe was delayed…etc.’, [and they said] ‘come let us make for ourselves a god’, ‘because this man, Moshe, we don’t know what has become of him.’

==

So, it turns out that the main way the Satan overcame them was by hiding Moshe from them, and placing in their hearts the thought that Moshe had now disappeared.

Therefore, he managed to persuade them to do this thing, because on that day the Sitra Achra so powerfully overcame them, that no-one had the power to nullify him, except for Moshe if he had been there.

And this is what it means when it says, ‘and the people saw that Moshe was delayed.’

And our sages explained this [that the word ‘boshesh’ delayed] can be read as ‘ba-shesh’ [the sixth hour came], that it was a cloudy day etc. [ie, that the people thought the day had already passed and Moshe, who had promised to return that day, did not arrive.] That the Satan confused the world so much, such that this day was destined for calamity. And, specifically, at that time, after the six[th hour] had come.

And it was a cloudy day, and so specifically then the Satan had the power to overcome with confusion and heresy like this.

Specifically, on that day and at that time. So much so, that no one had the power to nullify him with anything, except for Moshe Rabbenu himself, who was the Tzadik of that generation.

==

And, since Moshe was at that time in Heaven, therefore the Satan succeeded at that time.

But, as soon as Moshe came down from the mountain, he subdued him and smashed [the tablets] and nullified the golden calf.

And he went back and received the second set of tablets. And returned to strengthen their emunah. But, even then, it was all in the power of the remainder of the impression of the foundations of emunah which remained engraved in the heart of Israel from the Giving of the Torah.

==

At the time of Receiving the First Tablets, because on the basis of this foundation of emunah, each and every Tzadik has the power in his generation to clarify to Israel the holy emunah, because on account of this foundation of emunah the Nation of Israel in each generation merit to come close to the True Tzadik, to request and to search for him until they find him.

And like we described above, therefore we need to make an effort to come close to the Tzadik of the generation specifically, so that we will merit that he clarifies for us the holy emunah each time, according to the day and the hour.

Because, even though at the time of the Giving of the Torah, Israel merited emunah through ruach hakodesh, as we described earlier.

And so too, through the Tzadikim and the prophets in each generation, who clarified the emunah each time more and more.

Nevertheless, we ourselves need in this generation to come close to the True Tzadik of this generation, in order that he can clarify for us the emunah according to the current period and time.

====

Ad kan.

Without a connection to the True Tzaddikim, the ‘Erev Rav’ in our midst will overwhelm us, confuse us and rule us, however ‘holy’ and sincere we ourselves might be.

Because only the ‘Moshe Rabbenu’ of the generation has the power to take them on, and destroy them.

You might also like this article:

I can’t claim the credit for this piece of research, which was sent in by another reader.

It’s R’ Yehuda Fetaya’s discussion of the excorcism he performed of Shabtai Tzvi’s spirit, when it demonically possessed a Jewish man in Baghdad for 30 years.

Before we continue, I just wanted to make something clear:

We have nothing to fear from the truth.

Nothing at all.

‘Truth’ is Hashem’s seal, and whenever we are pursuing the truth for it’s own sake, and not just to win an argument or to big ourselves up, then that process of pursuing the truth, and loving the truth, brings us closer to Hashem.

Whatever the outcome of this process of trying to uncover the truth, it’s only going to be good.

We all know that the ‘world of lies’ has to fall, before the world of truth can truly be established and flourish.

Sometimes, dismantling all these lies is a painful and scary process. But once it’s completed, we’ll be ready to go forward into that world of truth, with no more ‘lies’ to keep pulling us away from Hashem, and our own souls.

====

So, here is what my correspondent sent me – thank you!

(English is not their first language, so please excuse any errors in their introduction, which I’m bringing here as it has some more clues about what is really going on, here.)

Dear Rivka, Are you familiar with the book by Rabbi Yehuda Fetaya – Minhat Yehuda?

This contains a large part about Ezekiel 37. The Rabbi told in this section about contacts he has with souls of the deceased. The Rabbi is in conversation with a certain Bechor, and indicates that the soul that speaks through him first says that he is David, the son of Shabbatai Zevi, but a little later he says he is Zevi himself!

Rabbi Fetaya then has a long conversation with him from many pages.

Below I display a short part from the book, translated by Avraham Leader, edited by Yehuda Herskowitz – Mechon Haktav Jerusalem 5770-2010.

==

Rabbi Fetaya: I asked  him more questions, and I am writing only the answers, since the questions will be obvious by the answers, and these were his answers:

I am Shabbetai Zevi

He died by strangulation.

He did not repent and was buried in a gentile cemetery.

When he was alive, the husks would appear before his eyes.

The reason he became wicked was because he was not conceived in holiness.

He was reincarnated in countless numbers of reincarnations.

He merited a psyche and a spirit, but when the soul began to flicker within him, what happened happened.

Now he concedes that Moses, our teacher, of blessed memory, was true, that his prophecy was true and that his Torah was true, but these words of his have no effect, since once a person has died he is exempt from the commandments [Shabbat 30a].

His reward for fulfilling the commandments is already credited to another righteous man.

The reason he speaks within the heart rather than through the mouth is because the aforesaid Bechor studies Torah, by means of which he subdues the spirit within him and causes it pain. This is why the spirit interrupts his studies and communicates to him foreign thoughts.

==

(He lied to me concerning this, because even though being occupied with Torah subdues the evil spirit, it does not cause the spirit to speak within the heart rather than through the mouth. Proof of this is that in the year 5675, a thirty-five year old maiden who was blind in both eyes came to see me. A sage who had lived in my lifetime who I knew and recognized, had become reincarnated in her. Although she was blind and did not study Torah, he spoke within her heart but not through her mouth.

During his lifetime, this sage had a questionable reputation. Now, too, he attempted to seduce the said maiden to behave promiscuously with another sage and told her that the Messaiah would be born from their Union, but she did not listen to him. After a number of unifications and efforts I managed to determine that it was indeed that infamous sage.

It became known to me that when they bathed his corpse [i.e. the corpse of the Sage], they noticed a tattoo on his heart resembling a cross.

==

The actual reason he [i.e. the Sage who was known to R’ Fetaya] did not speak through the mouth was so that he would not be recognized by the people and be ridiculed and mocked. See Sha`ar Hagilgulim, preface 22, 22a, where he writes:

These incarnations which possess people occur in one of two ways.

The First are the souls of the wicked, who have not merited entering hell after death. They enter the bodies of people who are alive in this World and recount all that has befallen them there, may the Merciful One deliver us. The second relates to their impregnation in a person, in accordance with the secret of Pregnancy, as previously mentioned in former discourses, and they cling to him very secretively.

Therefore, if that person sins, the soul impregnated in him overpowers him, causes him to sin and incites him down an evil path, etc.

See there. It could be that when the master wrote: they cling to him very secretively, it is for the reason we have already cited, so that they not be recognized and made a mockery by the people. Now, then, let us return to our tale [of Shabtai Tzvi.)

==

His spirit has been reincarnated in the aforesaid Bechor, but his psyche still resides among the beasts of the forest.

He would like to leave this place, never again to enter the body of a Jew, and go the forests.

He was thirty-five years old when he died. (Actually he was fifty, see Encyclopedia Judaica, Shabbetai Zevi.)

I asked him other questions, but he would not reply. All he told me was that he was presently enclosed with the Other Side, in a the thickness of approximately one cubit.

Five days later I spoke to him again, very gently, and I saw that he was subdued. He was bemoaning his transgressions. He entreated me exceedingly to effect a rectification for him, and blessed me and my family with many blessings. He said that in order to honor me he would speak only the truth.

The beginning of his downfall was when he sinned with  a married woman, and what I heard is true; he fornicated with a male while wearing a prayer shawl and phylacteries.

He also sent a young man to be with his own wife Sarah and explicitly commanded him, saying, “Whatever Sarah tells you, obey her.”

==

His beating in the grave lasted twelve years.

Until now he had been reincarnated in the beasts of the forest. This was his First reincarnation in a person, in the aforesaid Bechor.

The reason for having entered him was that he had kissed a Young girl when he was a young boy. It was now thirty years since he had entered him. Beforehand, he had circled around Bechor`s head, because he was from the same root (as written in Sefer Halikutim, Jeremiah 8:13:

What I gave them will pass away, (I will give them spirits) that will pass into a body that is close to them, according to the hidden meaning of: “Either his uncle or his cousin shall redeem him etc.” [Leviticus 25:49].

On account of the aforesaid kiss, he entered him.

He was condemned to be with the Nazarene in boiling feces from the second hour until the fourth and a half hour of Friday.

====

Lots of interesting things to pick up here.

Firstly, that Shabtai Tzvi partially shared the same punishment as Yoshki in gehinnom, being boiled in feces together – but only for 2 1/2 hours on a Friday.

And also, that he sinned because he was conceived in impurity.

I have a lot of stuff I’m currently going through about the SHACH’s ancestors, and a lot of surprising information to share with you on that score, too, but we’ll keep that for another post.

But the thing that really stood out for me was that reference to:

David, the son of Shabbatai Zevi

====

I have been reading through Sabbatean history for months and months, but so far, I haven’t come across any other references to ‘David, the son of Shabbatai Zevi’.

I still have 100 pages left to go in Gershom Scholem’s oeuvre, so maybe he’ll turn up there, we’ll see.

But in the meantime, in one of those strange strokes of serendipity, just before I got sent this email, I tripped across another family tree for the SHACH on geni that looks like this:

====

Number 1 is next to R’ Moses Isserles, the REMA.

I have actually been combing through the tangled knots of his family tree for quite a while now, as his family tree is at the heart of so many of what became the Sabbatean-Frankist network.

I will do a separate post on him soon, BH, but I’ve already found grandchildren for the REMA who appear to be Polish xtians, possibly related to Polish nobility.

And that’s only a bit of what I’m discovering.

==

Number 2 is next to ‘Shabsai Cohen – The Shach Kasvan’ – i.e. the SHACH.

And Number 3 is next to his son, ‘Dovid Kasvan’.

====

That’s when I recalled that I’d done a family tree a long time ago, when I was trying to figure out more of the tangled relationships around the SHACH, forwards and backwards, where I’d had a lot of question marks about what was going on with ‘Dovid Kasvan / Katvan’.

In that ‘other’ family tree, which you can see HERE, ‘David Katvan’ is meant to be the SHACH’s son-in-law, married to a daughter ‘Toyba’ or ‘Tova’.

Toyba / Tova’s other husband is an ‘Aharon Mi-Geza Tzvi’.

It’s that surname again.

====

So, which version is correct?

‘David Katvan’ the Shach S-I-L version says that his father is one ‘Yitzhak HaLevi Katvan of Prague‘ – and then he’s connected to nothing and no-one else after that.

At this stage, that always strikes me as invitation to dig deeper, especially as we’re dealing with a prominent, wealthy individual here, described in the Pinkas of the Zolkiew chevra kadisha as follows:

“[T]he leader of the province, officer, the head, sir, the wealthy.” [Rosenstein. The Lurie Legacy.]

Here’s the text that is brought to support that version of David Katvan’s family tree:

====

Meanwhile on the other side, the version that has ‘Dovid Kasvan’ as the SHACH’s actual son, the family tree shows that ‘Dovid Kasvan’s’ daughter marries this Yitzhak Babad mentioned above, the ABD of Brod.

====

They can’t both be right.

Why does this matter?

If you trace the descendants of ‘Dovid Katvan’, on the version of the SHACH’s family tree that has him as the son-in-law, it goes like this:

DOVID KATVAN > ELLA ANSCHEL marries R’ SIMCHA HAGADOL HACOHEN RAPPOPORT > R’ YOSEF RAPPOPORT > RIVKA marries R’ YITZHAK ITKOVITZ > RABBI CHAIM OF VOLOZHIN.

You probably heard of Rabbi Chaim of Volozhin.

He founded the Volozhin Yeshiva, where so many of the ‘big zionists’ – both secular and ‘religious’ apparently spent some time.

And he’s the ancestor of Shimon Peres.

Amongst many others.

One day, I’ll do a post on the links between the Volozhin Yeshiva, and all the people intimately connected to what became the nascent State of Israel and modern ‘Zionism’, because there are just so many of them….

====

In case you were wondering, the family tree for R’ Chaim of Volozhin is a total, utter mess.

The progression I set out for you above took me months and months of comparing data to get to, and I have the feeling that in the middle of that whole mess, we will probably find Rebbe Nachman’s grandfather, R’ Nachman Horodenka.

If you remember from THIS post, on Jacob Frank, the data seemed to be showing this:

Rabbi Nachman Horodenka, the grandfather of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov, appears to be the brother of R’ Chaim of Volozhin:

====

Because all this is so very deliberately convoluted, it could also be that Rabbi Nachman’s father, Simcha, is actually the brother of R’ Chaim of Volozhin. I’m still unpicking it.

====

But you can see that IFFFFF Shabtai Tzvi = SHACH, and IFFFFF Shabtai Tzvi /SHACH’s son was ‘David Katvan’, why a lot of effort would be put into rearranging the family tree, to try and cover that information up.

Because otherwise, we’d all know that the direct descendants of ‘Shabtai Tzvi’, in the person of Shimon Peres (and probably many others…) are still ruling the State of Israel in our days.

====

And that Rabbenu, our holy Rebbe, Rabbi Nachman of Breslov, was really the ‘light’ sent down into the midst of all that Sabbatean ‘darkness’ on his father’s side, to sweeten what was happening with his Torah and advice, so we’d be able to get through this ‘Sabbatean-Frankist’ onslaught of the last 200 years in one piece, spiritually.

And it also explains why Rebbe Nachman knew so much about the ‘Jewish Demon Torah Scholars’ in our midst, and why they all tried so hard to shut him up, destroy his teachings, and end his branch of chassidut.

Let’s stop there for now.

I have about 15 more family trees to ‘comb through’ again now, to try and figure this out a bit more.

But slowly, slowly, it’s all starting to come together.

What could be wrong in the world?

The honest answer is: nothing and everything.

In my bit of reality right now, life is really good, Baruch Hashem.

==

Sure, I still have issues and challenges.

I still have a lot of things to pray for, and about.

I still spent the two days of chag / Shabbat totally wiped out, reading in bed, because I was feeling ‘irradiated’ – just getting weirdly ‘hot’ for a minute, every half an hour or so, and then feeling exhausted with a strange headache.

But overall…. Baruch Hashem, life is good.

And anytime it isn’t, I just start doing more tikkun haklalis again, or I go walk to the Kotel for a pray, or I go and pray with Rav Berland’s community on Ido HaNavi street, or I pay another pidyon nefesh, or I do more hitbodedut, to try and figure out what it is I need to work on, accept, or change.

Those are my good, holy pigeons, coming home to roost now.

====

Over Pesach, we got to catch up with a lot of family members from chul who haven’t been allowed into Israel for over two years, thanks to the Covid regulations.

It was great to see them – and also so interesting to see how the ‘pigeons coming home to roost’ for others are not exactly the same sort I have building their nests on my Jerusalem windowsills.

For example, my brother from London told me that the LGBT-whatever campaign in the orthodox Jewish community there is already yielding masses of bitter fruit.

He has friends who enthusiastically welcomed gay couples to their Shabbos table, and were thrilled when posters of Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis telling students ‘it’s ok to be gay’ went up all over supposedly ‘orthodox’ high schools like JFS.

====

Before we continue, here’s some highlights from Ephraim Mirvis’s career to date, from Wikipedia HERE:

As Chief Rabbi of Ireland and before the opening of an Israeli Embassy in Ireland, he represented Israel’s interests at government level and in the media….

In 2016, Mirvis launched the ‘In Good Faith’ programme, in partnership with Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury. The initiative is a way of bringing Anglican and Jewish clergy together so that they might encourage their respective congregations to work on interfaith projects together….

In September 2018, Mirvis issued a guide on the well-being of LGBT+ pupils in Orthodox Jewish schools.

The guide was the first of its kind anywhere in the world. It upheld the traditional prohibitions against the act of homosexuality, he then added extremely controversial views which caused uproar across the Orthodox spectrum and caused him to banned from several mainstream Orthodox events by making it clear that the Torah still demands “sensitivity to the feelings of everyone, including LGBT+ people” and that there should be a zero-tolerance approach to either homophobic or transphobic bullying or disregard for their wellbeing…

====

When JFS got a bad OFSTED report from the UK government, they brought in an ‘OFSTED expert’ to help them do better.

That OFSTED inspector put big, colouful posters of Ephraim Mirvis up all over the school, telling the students ‘it’s ok to be gay’.

And encouraged JFS to start actively teaching the students about how it’s great, wonderful, amazing!!!! to be ‘gay’ – graphically, in the classroom.

And then hired a bunch of ‘trans’ teachers who the poor students now have to address as ‘Mx’ (pronounced ‘micks’).

And if they dare to say ‘miss’ instead of ‘Mx’, they get the full lecture about their lack of respect and tolerance for others….

====

So anyway…

My brother now knows of at least two people in his close circle with young teenage children who are officially ‘trans’.

Not even ‘gay’ – which would be difficult enough – but ‘trans’.

At the age of 14.

And the parents are not at all happy about it.

====

Then, we found out another – not at all ‘frum’ – cousin of ours, aged 17, is already the proud owner of a tattoo, and planning to get more.

Her mum took her to get it.

But apparently, students in ‘Jewish orthodox’ schools in the UK are already ‘inking themselves’ anyway, giving themselves amateurish – and permanent!! – tattoos by pricking the skin with needles, then pouring ink into the open wounds, like they used to do in the good old days.

====

And let’s be honest, that the situation is not wildly better even in Israel.

Even in Jerusalem.

Both my kids went through the ‘dati leumi’ education system here, from the age of 4 on.

One of them told me that out of all her wide group of friends, her and one other are the only ones who still believe in God.

And the ‘gay’ thing is happening all over the place here, too.

I found that out by accident, when there was a discussion going on between my kids in Hebrew about how many ‘Yehudits’ they know are now lesbians, when they didn’t realise I was understanding every word.

What, even THAT Yehudit?! I asked my daughter, who quickly tried to change the subject, because that Yehudit’s mum still doesn’t know that her daughter’s social media profile is a picture of her and her girlfriend….

====

Before anyone rushes to call me a bigot, or a ‘hater’, I had three young women at my Rosh Hashana table who I knew were gay, and who had no-where else to go for the chag.

I told my daughter they could come if they would respect my family’s sensitivities on the subject, and keep any discussion of ‘gay life’ firmly to themselves, because respect is a two-way street.

They did that, and we all got along fine.

There is a difference between caring for another person, another Jewish neshama, and accepting all the manifestly evil ‘gay propaganda’ being shoved down everyone’s throats.

(Which is the point I made to my kid when she got a little upset with that conditional approach, that at the end of the day, the people who were willing to share their homes for Rosh Hashana with these girls, tachlis, were orthodox Jews, and not LGTB-whatever advocates….)

====

For a moment, let’s brush aside all the propaganda about people being ‘born gay’, and let me tell you what I’ve been observing myself, about all the ‘gay people’ I know personally, directly and indirectly.

Every single one of them comes from a super-dysfunctional family home.

Most of them underwent severe abuse and trauma by close family members.

While others experienced their parents horrible shalom bayit problems, including violent arguments and divorces.

Again, remember that I’m talking about people who come from families who are supposedly, externally ‘frum’.

But clearly, something has gone very wrong in this picture.

====

Sometimes, it’s been such a struggle to hang on to my emuna, over the last couple of decades.

Sometimes, it’s been so hard to hang on my relationship with my kids, and to keep picking things up and working on mending and fixing the relationship – which really boils down to me acknowledging and trying to fix my own bad middot.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve felt overwhelmed by all my problems, both externally, but also and especially internally, as I really battled to treat my kids with compassion and understanding, instead of just flaring straight up into self-righteous rage and anger.

It has been anything but easy.

And there were days, and weeks and months, when I really questioned myself so much, whether my approach was actually correct, and whether I shouldn’t have tried to ‘lay down the law’ more with my kids.

Now, God is showing me more and more how patience, compassion and prayer was and is the way to go.

====

I can guarantee you, that most of the parents in the so-called frum world have no idea what is really going on in their children’s lives today.

I can guarantee, that most of my kid’s friends’ parents have no idea that their kids don’t really believe in God anymore; or have a nasty nicotine habit; or a predilection for cocaine; or are ‘gay’; or promiscuous.

Because you have to make a very safe space for your child to tell you what’s really going on in their lives, warts n’all, and so many parents in the frum world especially just don’t want to hear anything that could damage the picture-perfect ‘appearance’.

Again, I understand that.

Hearing these things are really, really hard, and sometimes, I feel so overwhelmed by all the ‘bad’ going on out there, I don’t really know how to handle it myself.

That’s when I go back to my routine described above:

I just start doing more tikkun haklalis again, or I go walk to the Kotel for a pray, or I go and pray with Rav Berland’s community on Ido HaNavi street, or I pay another pidyon nefesh, or I do more hitbodedut, to try and figure out what it is I need to work on, accept, or change.

Because what else can I really do?

The world is such a mess right now.

====

Until recently, I had a big shopping list of ‘requirements’ for the sort of person I wanted my daughters to marry.

They should be religious…

They should appreciate Breslov teachings….

They shouldn’t smoke…..

They shouldn’t be ‘vaccinated’ with Covid 19 nanotech….

At this point, I am understanding that in our days, the list of requirements is actually very, very small:

They should have a truly kind heart, and be truthful, and treat my children kindly and with consideration and respect.

At this point, dayenu.

====

Rabbenu teaches that by rights, all the ‘good’ in the world will eventually find its way to him, to the Breslov path.

And until it gets there… I’m just going to continue praying for my kids, and whoever they marry, and paying pidyonot over to Shuvu Banim, and working on my own bad middot and lack of emuna.

There is nothing else I can do, anyway.

And that stuff works.

It really works.

====

In the meantime…. I got motivated to continue uncovering all these spiritual fakers posing as our ‘chief rabbis’, and ‘religious leaders’, who are really just hell-bent on destroying us and our children’s mental and spiritual health.

Today, I’m diving back into the Sabbatian-Frankist parsha again, as God sent me a whole bunch more information to share about who these people really are, and what they are really doing in our communities.

Not for the first time, I am so grateful that all those years’ ago, Lazer Brody started up his ‘Lazer Beams’ blog in English, and opened up the world of Rabbenu and Breslov to me and my husband.

I’m so grateful, that God took us on a path that included R’ Shalom Arush, R’ Ofer Erez, and now, Rav Eliezer Berland.

Honestly, it has not been an easy path to tread, especially before we got to Rav Berland, and his ability to ‘sweeten’ so many of the harsh things, for his followers.

But now, more and more, all those holy, good pigeons are coming home to roost.

And I can see God’s hidden hand in so much of what we had to go through, to get to where we are today.

====

PS: On Ephraim Mirvis’s Wikipedia page, it also says this:

His nephew Shlomo Mirvis is married to Shira Marili Mirvis, the first woman to serve as the spiritual leader of an Orthodox synagogue in Israel.

If you click on that link, you eventually get to the page of the ‘Shirat Ha-Tamar’ congregation in Efrat, Gush Etzion, where Shira Mirvis is the ‘rabbi’, HERE.

Screenshot below:

====

You can get to the ‘Honey Foundation for Israel’ homepage HERE.

Here’s a screenshot:

====

Here’s the person who is meant to be funding the Honey Foundation:

====

Another snippet about him from HERE:

The Lipseys are longtime members of Congregation Agudath Israel in Caldwell, where Bill Lipsey served as synagogue president; he has also sat on the executive committee of the Masorti Foundation for Conservative Judaism in Israel.

====

So, Shirat HaTamar is NOT an orthodox synagogue, despite all the PR.

It’s just another Masorti / Conservative-funded trojan horse in the orthodox Jewish community, using ‘women’s lib-tards’ to try to ‘shatter orthodoxy’.

At this point, I’m almost certain Lipsey is just a ‘front man’, or cut-out, for all of this, and that the same people who are funding Reform / Conservative / Masorti, the New Israel Fund and all the rest of the ‘anti-Torah’ agitation in the Jewish world are also behind ‘The Honey Foundation in Israel’, too.

Just they switched the name, to make it easier for people still pretending to be ‘orthodox Jews’ to get funding from them, without raising too many eyebrows from their congregations, while they ‘shatter orthodoxy’ from within.

Always the same people, always the same tactics.

A month ago, my daughter bought me an English version of ‘The DaVinci Code’ and insisted I read it.

I haven’t read a fiction book for around 16 years – from choice – so I left it to the side. But she insisted… and insisted… and insisted… until finally I realised, God must really want me to read ‘The DaVinci Code’.

So that’s what I’ve been doing.

There’s a few interesting things in there, for my own research ‘in the real world’ – not least that Dan Brown did a fabulous job of whitewashing the true, demonic nature of the Knights’ Templars, and making them seem all fluffy and cute – but the real pay dirt occurred yesterday.

That’s when I decided to look up the words: “Hieros Gamos.”

==

In The DaVinci Code, the discussion about ‘Hieros Gamos’ – or ‘sacred prostitution’ – comes up as part of a discussion about how the ancient religious cults used the power of this most holy act for their own ends.

You can read a scholarly, and fairly tznius, description of the basic ideas behind ‘Hieros Gamos’ HERE.

The bottom line is that there were two types of ‘sacred prostitution’.

  1. Each bride was required to spend her wedding night being defiled in one of the many Temples set up to the ‘goddesses’, who all had different names but were actually just pushing the same ‘religion’.
  2. These temples also has a group of ‘cult priestesses’ – aka sex slaves – and ‘sacred orgies’ were also a big part of the pagan religions.

(And now, maybe some readers are already starting to make the link between what is described above, and what was going on in Sabbatean-Frankist homes, beneath the ‘pious’ veneer.)

====

There are very deep spiritual considerations attached to all this.

Here’s a few scholarly quotes, from the above, to give you an idea of what I’m talking about. And then we’ll get down to the eye-popping tachlis – how all this connects to you and me, and the State of Israel, and the battle between good and evil.

“[W]e are talking about a high-level magico-operational ritual….

Mircea Eliade wrote about it this way: “In the most general sense, an orgy is a part of hierogamy. It correlates with the coitus of the divine couple, with the unlimited and ecstatic fertility of the earth… Excess energy is valuable and fruitful in sacred balances. The barriers between man, society, nature, and the gods are being broken; forces, life, and germs are being rotated and transferred from one level to another, from one space to all others.“”

====

Plain English: All that talk that xtians, and others, have about ‘the Holy Trinity’ is really a warped reference to the union between man and woman, that transforms them into a ‘god on earth’.

This idea is very deep, and once you really internalise what I just told you here, you’ll start to understand A LOT about what is really going on, with xtianity.

====

Another snippet:

The legendary stories of a woman being possessed by a” god”, or vice versa, a man converging with a goddess, are too well known to be retold…

[I]n ancient Egypt, a pharaoh who mystically reincarnated as Horus impregnated his wife to continue the dynastic line of the “divine kingdom”.

The culmination of the Hellenistic festival of Antesterium was a sacred sacrifice, and then the copulation of the wife of the archon king with Dionysus in the temple of Leneon; in Babylon, the hierogamy of the young woman chosen for this purpose was also known in a special wedding room, raised above the seventh floor of the sacred ziggurat tower (“on the other side of the number seven”) – there she was supposed to spend the night with a certain god.

The Greeks believed that the priestess of the temple of Apollo in Patara spent the night with this god on a “sacred bed”.

====

This is the ‘pagan, evil mirror image’ of our own, very holy traditions, the whole idea of the keruvim, the holy of holies, and our very deep ‘bitul’ to, and dvekut with Hashem.

There is nothing new under the sun, remember this.

So, when nuns talk of ‘marrying’ Yoshki… and when xtians talk about the Holy Trinity… and when gnostic-‘xtians’ talk about how Yoshki was really married to Mary Magdelene, and they had kids, and how ‘mainstream xtianity’ is trying to surpress that information…. while demon-worshipping Knights Templars (and all the other sex-magick based secret societies) are very big ‘feminists’ and believers in breaking down sexual morality….

We understand, again, that really, there is nothing new under the sun.

====

To sum up:

All pagan, idolatrous, evil ‘religions’ from the dawn of time have always tried to use and subvert the act of intimacy, and to harness the tremendous spiritual power it contains, to make themselves ‘powerful’ and a ‘god’, chas v’halilah.

This started right back in the Garden of Eden, when the evil Lilith ‘split’ from Adam, then enticed him to spill seed for 130 years, leading to creation of all the souls of the ‘demons’ that in our days became Nazis, ISIS – and Covid 19-pushing doctors and ‘rabbis’.

Amongst others.

====

So, what does this have to do with you and me?

Some how, my computer decided to search for images associated with ‘Hieros Gamos’, without me knowing. In a million years, even with a very strong filter, I would not have done that, because it’s literally asking for trouble.

But that’s what happened, and when I was closing down my tabs at the end of the day yesterday, I got to those search results – and here’s what I saw, that blew me away:

====

It’s the so-called ‘Star of David’, that the Erev Rav ,’Jewish Demon Scholars’ in our midst convinced us was a symbol of the Jewish people, around 300 years ago.

But really?

It’s the ancient symbol of ‘Hieros Gamos’, i.e. the ritual subversion of the act of intimacy, which sends all that ‘power’ to fuel the forces of evil.

And we have this symbol of evil literally atop every synagogue, carved on every Ark of Torah, inlaid on all our tombstones….

Can you understand, just how much they are laughing at the Jewish people right now?

There’s more.

====

Sharp-eyed readers probably already know the connection between the ‘Star of David’, and the Masons’ square and compass, with the ‘G’ in the middle.

====

That ‘G’ stands for gnosis, knowledge.

In our Torah, we speak of how a man knows his wife, as a reference to the act of physical intimacy.

In pagan religions, that time when a man ‘loses his mind’ at the end of the physical act, so to speak, is the time when they say he can ‘become a god on earth’.

This is deeply connected to the idea of demonic possession, amongst other things.

====

Judaism teaches that spermatozoa derives from a man’s mind – his very essence.

That’s part of why ‘spilling seed’ in a wanton way can literally drive a person mad. A  man’s seed contains the ‘spiritual essence’ that could theoretically create another 4 billion human souls. And when that seed is ‘spilled’ – all that ‘soul power’ just goes to the dark side.

Those 4 billion potential human souls are held captive by the forces of evil, which suck all the ‘juice’ out of them, and use that soul power to do bad things in the world.

====

That’s why Rebbe Nachman of Breslov revealed the ‘Tikkun Haklali’, or general rectification, to be recited after nocturnal emissions.

To fix the ‘sin’ of all this spilled seed, and to elevate those billions and trillions of ‘lost soul sparks’ back to the side of holiness.

That’s why true Breslov, and Rav Berland, put so much emphasis on a man guarding his eyes, and personal holiness.

That’s why, l’havdil, Eybshutz, and the Sabbatean-Frankists, encouraged adultery, wife-swapping, ‘sacred orgies’, homosexuality, and then incest and pedophilia.

====

There are so many links to make with all this stuff, it’s hard to know what to really write, but let’s make two more connections, and then we’ll leave it here for now.

In Judaism, there are strict guidelines for how the act of intimacy should be performed, including mandating the position of the man and the woman.

In pagan religions, this evil, ‘Hieros Gamos’ / Star of David representation has the woman and man as androgynous ‘equals’, forming a ‘divine Trinity’.

That ‘space’ in the middle of the ‘Hieros Gamos’ represents the Pharoah-nic, pagan, evil idea of ‘man as God’.

I.e. instead of being filled with God, the person becomes filled with their own evil, arrogance and lusts.

====

Again, all this has very ancient roots.

Remember that the snake told Chava that if she and Adam ate from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, they would become “like God…”

There is nothing new under the sun.

====

In the meantime, this is what our Torah teaches – the man is the head of the household, the man is ‘on top’, and the man and woman should ‘become one flesh’.

Here’s how that looks:

 

A diamond.

====

Remember what Rav Berland and Rebbe Nachman teaches about these ‘diamonds’?

This snippet comes from HERE:

When a person merits, however much they are putting him down, however much they are making him “mah — what” [i.e. nothing, nullified], however much they are making out of him dust and ashes, [as it’s said] “and may my soul be like dust to all” (Amidah prayer) — they are throwing diamonds onto you.

The Rebbe brings in [Likutey Moharan] Torah 277, [that they are] throwing diamonds onto you.  When they are putting you down, they’re throwing diamonds onto you — don’t throw them back.

[If] they insult you, and you insult them back, you’ve lost a diamond.  They’re building a house of diamonds for you [from all the insults and put-downs].

====

This is the authentic, Torah-true, Jewish holy way of bringing God down into the world.

The man makes himself ‘nothing’ – and particularly in the home, where believe me, the diamonds get thrown at the guy every second of the day.

And this is how we really build the holy Temple, and really achieve that ‘union’ with Hashem in this lowly, gashmiut world.

By making ourselves nothing.

By hearing our own disgrace, and not answering back, and understanding that really, it’s just God who is behind everything.

This is the polar opposite of the gaava-dik ‘man as god’ approach of the pagan-xtians, represented by ‘Hieramos Gamos’ and the pagan, so-called ‘Star of David’.

====

The last thing, for now, has to do with the mysterious ‘Z’ on Russia’s tanks.

As I’m hoping you are starting to understand, these people are ALL about their symbolism.

 

For example, the double chevron is a favorite symbol of the Knights Templar, and is all over their castles and churches.

This is a screenshot from a video called ‘The Pharoah Show’ by Swiss alt-historian Sean Hross.

(Again, I don’t agree with a lot of his ideas, but much of what he says strikes me as credible. This is a process of birur, remember.)

You see these chevrons all over the place in Israel, on IDF uniforms – same as other militaries all over the world.

====

Once you understand that it’s a phallic representation of two men, you start to understand a lot more.

Here’s a screenshot of the Knights Templar’s seal from Wikipedia HERE:

Notice the two knights on one horse.

Also notice the ’round Templar church’ – modelled on the Dome of the Rock, and taken as the blueprint for Templar churches all over the world.

Round temples were always associated with pagan practices, particularly ‘sacred prostitution’ and ceremonies like the Hieros Gamos, which required an audience – and a large, empty ‘space in the middle’, as the focal point.

 

====

What does all this have to do with the Russian ‘Z’ on all their tanks?

THIS site (Google translate from Russian) has some interesting ideas – but again, all this needs very careful birur.

But what struck me is that this ‘Z’ is the symbol for ‘man’ and ‘woman’ back-to-back – i.e., back to that state that the pagans believe was the ‘perfect state of humanity’ in the Garden of Eden, before demonic Lilith was split away from Adam HaRishon – and humankind was androgynous.

====

We’ll stop there for now.

But lots and lots to think about.

 

 

Yeah, I didn’t forget Pesach is arriving!

Just so busy with all the Jewish history stuff, I haven’t really been paying attention to Pesach-related stuff (aside from cleaning my house….)

So, just a quick post to let you know:

  1. You can do the mitzvah of Kimche dePischa for the families of Shuvu Banim HERE.

I just did that myself, and I feel very happy about it. A lot of these families are truly yireh shemayim, and many of the men are still learning Torah with a lot of mesirut nefesh, in a lot of different ways.

So, highly recommend you pitch in some cash to help see them through Pesach, as we all know the Sages’ dictum that the money for Pesach is two-sided: either you ‘give it’ to others, or you end up needing to ‘get it’ from others.

And I know which side of that coin I’d rather be dealing with.

====

2. There is a new Haggadah out in English, that contains a whole bunch of Rav Berland’s prayers and Torah insights for Pesach and the Seder night.

Breslov Haggadah

 

If you are in Israel, you can get one on the ravberland.com site HERE – or come to the Rav’s davening on Ido HaNavi, and ask for the guy who sells the Rav’s books there.

Everyone knows him.

If you are anywhere else in the world, it’s probably better to order it from Amazon HERE, as the shipping will hopefully be free and you’ve got a good chance of getting it before Seder night, if you order it today.

They deliberately left the Rav’s name off the cover, to make it ‘easier’ to use at the Seder table without having to get into discussions with people who still believe everything the MSM tells them is true…

====

 

3. My friend Annette has a post with some nice Pesach recipes HERE.

Try her Hazelnut Torte – it’s a really good recipe.

====

And I don’t really have anywhere to put this info, so I’m just tacking it on here, that the two Ukrainians who were killed in the terror attack in Bnei Brak last week were not Jewish.

So, of a total of 5 people killed in that terror attack, only two were Jewish – which is mind-boggling, as we’re talking about Bnei Brak here.

And there are other strange details about this too, like the fact that the terrorist in Bnei Brak apparently told a group of young Jewish girls to run away, instead of just shooting them.

Sounds more and more to me that he was kind of ‘pressured’ into doing a terror attack, as opposed to eagerly hunting down Jews to kill in the street because he really wanted to.

So, who was doing the ‘pressuring’?

That is the question.
