Last week, one of my kids forwarded on another investigation into pedophiles in Jerusalem.

It’s a Channel 13 expose that was run two weeks ago now, about a ‘rebbe’ pedophile who was working in a children’s kindergarten somewhere in Jerusalem, who horrifically abused at least 15 different children, all aged 5-6.

On the kindergarten’s premises.

Under the nose of the gannenet, who apparently didn’t even suspect anything was wrong, when the ‘rebbe’ would disappear for an hour at a time to teach ‘aleph bet’ to a kid who would come back downstairs severely traumatised by what had just occurred.

It’s in Hebrew, but you can watch it here:

====

That’s not even the worst part of this story.

The worst part, is that despite mounting concerns from multiple parents, whose kids started telling them what this ‘rebbe’ was really doing to them, the police didn’t want to investigate the case.

They put the parents off.

They made excuses for why they couldn’t open a case.

Until eventually, the parents had to ‘force’ the police into action by doing their own investigations – based on the testimony of at least 15 kids! – which included finding the not-so-hidden ‘secret room’ upstairs in the kindergarten where the abuse had taken place, and where you could still see things like big pots of vaseline, cushions on the floor, and the pickaxe used to terrify the children into complying.

Sigh.

====

Last week, the police finally had an initial hearing for this ‘rebbe’.

In the meantime, the guy is still walking around totally free, and the court has slapped a gag order on revealing his name.

Some of the parents whose kids were involved in this case were so furious with this decision, they took to Facebook to publically flout the court’s order. (Those posts have now been taken down.)

And that’s how I got to hear about this.

Hmm, curious… 

Why is the State of Israel – that same State of Israel that spent 10 million shekels chasing Rav Berland all over the world on the basis of a sole schizophrenic’s false testimony – trying so hard to:

a) Avoid investigating such serious cases of pedophilia in Jerusalem

And

b) Trying so hard to ‘protect the identity’ of the guilty?

====

In case you haven’t realised it yet, the Frankist-Sabbateans who run our Jewish community are split between the secular and the ‘frum’ world.

Within these same families, you will find hardcore, ultra-secular ‘Zionists’, who control the courts here, and the judiciary, and the police, and the government.

And at one and the same time, you will find ‘anti-Zionist rebbes’ in places like Meah Shearim, who apparently are the polar opposite of their secular brethren.

But really?

They are just one, big, horrible family.

And that family has a family tradition for at least 300 years of practising things like child abuse, incest and sodomy.

And all the members of this big, horrible, Frankist-Sabbatean family just go around covering up for each other, and using each other to further commit their crimes against the Jewish community.

And particularly, our children.

====

Recently, I came across an article from November 2013 that was called:

The Child Rape Assembly Line

It’s an interview with a former Satmar Chassid named Rabbi Nuchem Rosenberg, who describes in horrifying detail how he witnessed a small boy being raped by a 70 year old man in a mikva in Meah Shearim – and how the ‘religious’ community totally turned on him, when he started trying to sound the alarm about the horrible child abuse going on in the chassidic community.

A few weeks after he gave the interview above, he was attacked by someone throwing bleach in his face, and had to go to hospital. And the guy receives death threats day in, day out.

You can find his blog HERE, although it looks like it hasn’t been updated since 2019.

====

Tatty, ad matai?

Before I started really researching the Frankist-Sabbateans who have taken over all aspects of our Jewish community, in the leadership and education roles, I would have found this story difficult to believe.

Not any more.

Frankist-Sabbateans are totally immersed in this sort of satanic, deviant behaviour.

And they are continuing to pollute and destroy our innocent children, even in the ‘frummest’ communities, because our Frankist-Sabbatean ‘leaders’ are either complicit in this behavior themselves, or scared of calling it out.

You know who has called it out, repeatedly, and stressed repeatedly the importance of guarding the eyes, and guarding the brit in holiness?

Rav Eliezer Berland.

That’s at least part of why they went after him, to shut him up.

====

The same police who refused, at least initially, to prosecute the case above, and who are still refusing to properly investigate what happened to 108 small chareidi children who were taken out of their kindergartens in the middle of the day, to be drugged and assaulted in awful ways, as detailed HERE 

They have gone after the Rav no less than three separate times, based on totally nothing except fake stories placed in the media by their Frankist-Freemason lackeys in the so-called ‘religious’ community.

What does that tell you, about what is really going on here?

====

People want to know about why I’m pulling all this shmutz out of the corners of the Jewish community.

Why stir it all up again, isn’t it old news?

The answer is this:

These Sabbatean-Frankist child rapists are still operating TODAY, at full tilt, in all of our communities.

They are literally destroying the souls of thousands and thousands of innocent children, while our ‘leaders’ and our ‘rebbes’ and our police and secular judges cover up for them, and run interference against anyone who wants to publicise what is really going on.

You want to know who is really NOT a God-fearing person, whatever their external appearance may be?

Look to see who is trying to cover this stuff up all the time. Look to see who is making excuses for this type of satanic behaviour, or playing down its repercussions.

Look to see who makes a mockery of ideas like guarding the eyes.

(Take a look at THIS, for example, from 2016.)

====

That’s why we have to get to grips with the terrible evil that overtook our Jewish community 350 years ago, and which is still going strong today.

We owe it to our children, to at least try to create a world where these abusers are held to account, and where we parents stand up for the rights of our children to maintain their innocence and purity the way God intended.

====

My kid is in touch with a grass-roots activist here in Israel, who has given her so many examples of where the police, media and ‘religious leaders’ in certain communities are all conspiring together, to make sure that these stories of abuse are all covered up.

What she’s told me the last few months has been totally and utterly sickening.

When it came to someone like Chaim Walder – all our fake leaders were off shooting their mouths off about what he did, and how important it was to talk, talk, talk about it.

At the end of April, another prominent chareidi rabbi was accused of things very similar to Chaim Walder.

I sat here and waited for the torrent of outrage to pour forth from the same people who couldn’t keep their mouths closed for a second about Chaim Walder.

No-one made so much as a peep.

====

So.

The “Sabbatean-Frankists” are real.

They are engaged in sickening acts of pedophilia and incest across our so-called ‘religious’ community (and of course, they are also in the secular world – that’s why the police and judges cover all this stuff up routinely.)

(BTW, I just came across the case of Leiby Kletzky, murdered back in 2011. Again, back then I simply couldn’t fathom that a ‘chassid’ would ever have done something like that, no matter how crazy they were. Now… the Sabbatean-Frankists stuff is explaining a lot of things.)

Personally, I am not going to stop trying to expose what’s going on, because if it helps even just one parent to wake up, and to make sure their child is properly protected from these despicable people, dayenu.

Even a single soul is really a whole world.

In the run up to Meron this year, I got asked about the funny illuminate symbol being used  by the ‘National Center for Holy Places’.

You can read the whole exchange on Chananya Weissman’s site, HERE.

But here is how the saga began:

While looking at Chananya’s video about Meron I noticed this symbol on some of the clips:

https://youtu.be/Up-fgMHB7B0

Nice pyramid. Who are these guys?

It looks like they first appeared on the scene (at least digitally) two years ago, have a focus on kever David, and are trying to gain control of the maintenance of as many Jewish holy sites as possible.

Anyone look into them?

It looks like they co-planned the Rashbi event in the past.

Are they this government department with almost the same name?

There is no explanation for their strange Illuminati symbol. The website has no info earlier than 2021 as far as I can see.

====

It was the second day of my break, but God clearly decided that I still had some research to do.

There is more connections to Meron in Chananya’s post, but here, I want to take a closer look at some of the stuff that started to bubble up about ‘Young Israel’, and it’s Reform / Reconstructionist roots.

====

First, take a look at this information (also excerpted from HERE), and then we’ll dive in.

MKs Demand That Gov’t Authority Operate Mt. Meron Holy Site | Israel National News – Arutz Sheva

This article is from 2008.
Note what’s going on, and note that they want an organisation ‘like the Western Wall Heritage Foundation’ to oversee what’s going on at Meron.
===

Charity Navigator – Rating for Western Wall Heritage Foundation

The Western Wall Heritage Foundation – that controls the whole Kotel – was actually set up in 1988 as a charity in NY.

It works ‘under the PM’s office’ in Israel – which is how they nearly always pull off their pretence that these things are government-owned and controlled.
It’s the other way round. The govt in Israel, especially the PM’s office, is just the ‘cover’ for a bunch of private financial and ‘religious’ interests.
The main guy who is running the Western Wall Heritage Foundation – out of NY! – is a Joseph Loshinsky.
====

IRS 990 form for 2019

Where you can see a few more of the people running the Kotel – no-one we’ve actually heard of before.
====

More on Joseph Loshinsky:

Shows he’s a member of the Zionist Organisation of America.
Snippet:
Founded in 1897, the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) played a key role in the Jewish State’s re-establishment.
Today, ZOA is the leading major American Jewish organization courageously defending Israel and the Jewish people; fighting against all forms of antisemitism, including anti-Jewish boycotts; and promoting the Jewish people’s lawful right to live in and settle historic Jewish lands.
You can see a 4 minute video about them HERE (Youtube isn’t letting me embed. Always a good sign I’m on to something.)
====

You’ll be shocked – absolutely shocked!!! – to learn that the ZOA was set up by a bunch of known Sabbatean-Frankists.

They include Reform ‘rabbi’ Stephen S. Wise, and later on, another very famous Frankist by the name of Louis Dembitz Brandeis.
Here’s another snippet from Wikipedia, explaining who the ZOA likes to give its awards to:
The Brandeis Award is given annually to a prominent national or international figure. Recipients include Miriam AdelsonJoseph BidenAbba Eban, Justice Arthur GoldbergRonald LauderNatan SharanskySimon WiesenthalElizabeth TaylorMortimer Zuckerman,Raanan Gissin and Frank Gaffney.
====

The ‘Mortimer Zuckerman’ mentioned above just donated a ton of cash to the Western Wall Heritage Foundation, and has his name proudly displayed on the new building they put up at the back of the plaza.

You can read more about him HERE, but it’s a very small Frankist-Freemason pond, that all these people swim in.

Let’s get back to Joseph Loshinsky, the guy in NY that you’ve never heard of, but who effectively controls the Kotel (!)

====
Shows he’s a member of the Young Israel of Borough Park.

That shul has a story that doesn’t make a lot of sense.

It was initially listed as a Reform ‘Temple Beth El’, then somehow morphed into becoming the first official shul for Lubavitch, in the US, before becoming Young Israel, run by ‘Dr Israel Shorr’:
====
Here’s the last snippet from that piece on Chananya’s site, which serves as our real jumping off point, for this post:

Young Israel was mamash set up by Reform rabbis.

That’s a strong statement to make. But as we’re about to discover, it’s sadly true.
====
Let’s begin with an excerpt from Wikipedia on Young Israel HERE – which we’ll then start to unpack, to see what the real story is.

In 1911, Max Grablowsky, Joshua Horowitz and Benjamin Koenigsberg determined to organize a way to present an orthodox alternative to young people. It developed informally with two programs, one for education and one for worship. After consulting with Judah Magnes, the enlarged group, which was calling itself the Hebrew Circle, renamed itself Young Israel…

The group developed a Friday night (Sabbath) lecture series in 1912, given in English. This was a major innovation in the Orthodox world.

They were initially advised by rabbis Israel Friedlander and Mordecai Kaplan on topics and speakers. According to Bunim, Friedlander and Kaplan were affiliates of the Conservative Jewish Theological Seminary and the Conservative Judaism movement, and they sought to use Young Israel to establish a youth platform for the Conservative movement.

====

After all the hoo-ha with the ‘non-denominational’ Pardes Institute, which we hopefully now all understand is just another Reform trojan horse in the Jewish community, I started to realise that the Frankist-Freemason-Reformers in our midst have been pulling the same tricks for centuries.

I.e., they set up their ‘reform-pushing’ organisations and institutions, but just call them ‘orthodox’, or ‘non-denominational’ – and voila, a new generation of Jews is deliberately deceived into thinking that if something is calling itself ‘orthodox’, it really must be ‘orthodox’.

This is exactly what happened with ‘Young Israel’, 100 years ago.

Read on.

====

So, we learnt above that Young Israel renamed itself from ‘the Hebrew Circle’, after consulting with Judah Magnes.

Who was Judah Magnes?

Here’s a snippet from his Wiki page:

Judah Leon Magnes was a prominent Reform rabbi in both the United States and Mandatory Palestine.

He is best remembered as a leader in the pacifist movement of the World War I period, his advocacy of a binational Jewish-Arab state in Palestine, and as one of the most widely recognized voices of 20th century American Reform Judaism.

Magnes served as the first chancellor of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (1925), and later as its President (1935–1948).

====

You got that?

Now, you tell me why the self-styled ‘orthodox’ founders of Young Israel are taking their marching orders from a leading Zionist-Reform rabbi like Judah Magnes, instead of being advised by an orthodox rabbi.

But of course, there’s more.

Let’s take a look at Young Israel’s other ‘rabbinic advisors’.

====

You can read more about Israel Friedlander HERE.

Here’s a snippet:

In 1912, together with Rabbi Mordecai Kaplan, a professor of homiletics and philosophy of religion at the Jewish Theological Seminary, he guided young Jewish adults in combating assimilation into secular American society or Reform circles.

These efforts resulted in a popular lecture series, which were a predecessor of the Young Israel movement to combat the wave of assimilation by Jews.

In other words, Young Israel was set up as a sort of ‘Frum Reform’ stream, by people in the Reform movement who felt that ‘Reform’ had gone too far, and was haemorraghing Jews out of the Jewish community.

There is nothing new under the sun.

====

What’s particularly interesting about him is that he married Ruth Bentwich.

She was the sister of Norman de Mattos Bentwich,

Norman Bentwich was the guy officially ‘in charge’ of Mandate Palestine as the British Attorney General, during the Arab riots of 1929,

You know, that time when the British authorities basically just let the Arabs massacre religious Jews wherever they could find them.

While his geni tree has been carefully ‘curated’, you’ll notice that he belongs to the ‘de Mattos’ family of rich London ‘conversos‘, all linked up to people like Moses Montefiore (brother-in-law to Nat Rothschild) and…. Jacob Frank.

Here’s a snippet from HERE:

The ‘Mattos-Mocatta’ family gave us Moses Montefiore, Jacob Frank, and the ‘bad’ Baal Shem, Hayyim Falk, amongst many others.

You see?

It’s always the same people.

====

Norman de Mattos Bentwich was also a school chum of someone else you probably heard of, by the name of Winston Churchill.

But we’ll get to that angle another time.

====

So back to Young Israel, and their other ‘rabbinic advisor’, who was called Mordechai Kaplan.

You can read more about him HERE.

Snippet:

Mordecai Menahem Kaplan

was a Lithuanian born American rabbi, writer, Jewish educator, professor, theologian, philosopher, activist, and religious leader who founded the Reconstructionist branch of Judaism along with his son-in-law Ira Eisenstein.

====

Last time I checked, ‘Reconstructionist Judaism’ was about as ‘Reform’ as it comes.

Mordecai Kaplan came from a very interesting background.

Let’s trace a bit of it, so you can see how all these ‘Reform Sabbatean-Frankists’ and ‘Pretend orthodox Sabbatean-Frankists’ helped each other out, on all sides of the equation – especially when it came to the State of Israel.

His father was R’ Israel Kaplan, who served as a dayan “in the court Chief Rabbi Jacob Joseph in New York City in 1888.’

If you guessed -rightly! –  that R’ Jacob Joseph learned in the Volozhin yeshiva, and also with Yisrael Salanter, award yourself 5 ‘Frankist Network’ brownie points.

====

Meanwhile, R’ Israel Kaplan hung out with people like Arnold Bogumil Ehrlich – born Jewish, but who became a bible critic and xtian missionary to Jews.

Here’s a pertinent snippet:

Many of the older generation rabbis studied under him at one time or another, either at Emanu-El or as private pupils. Among them were Samuel SchulmanLeon HarrisonBernard DrachmanStephen S. Wise, and George Alexander Kohut whose father was Alexander Kohut. Another of his mature students was Isaac S. Moses, rabbi of the Central Synagogue.

Don’t you find it a little weird, that so many ‘rabbis’ – including ‘orthodox rabbis’! – were openly studying with a Jewish-born xtian missionary?

Also notice that interesting middle name: BOGUMIL.

We started to cover a bit of the connections between Bogomils and Frankists HERE.

====

Back to Mordecai Kaplan.

He studies at the Conservative JTS, and is ordained there in 1902.

Then, he is given ‘orthodox smicha’ in 1908 while on his honeymoon, by none other than:

R’ Yitzhak Yaavov Reines – the founder of the so-called ‘religious Zionist’ movement, Mizrachi (whose youth organisation is the trojan horse Bnei Akiva movement).

Kaplan is not, and never has been ‘orthodox’, but of course, that doesn’t matter when it comes to deciding who is an ‘orthodox rabbi”.

====

Kaplan goes back to JTS.

He institutes the first ever ‘batmitzvah’ for his daughter Judith.

In 1925, the American Zionist Organization sends Kaplan to Jerusalem as its official representative for the opening of Hebrew University – being run by Reform rabbi Judah Magnes.

And by 1941, he was already well on the way to creating his ‘Reconstructionist Judaism’ stream of Reform Judaism.

====

So now, where does this leave ‘Young Israel’?

That organisation has been lying about its Reform / Conservative roots, right from the start. Read this strange snippet from Wikipedia, to see what I mean:

By the end of World War I, the two Lower East Side groups [of Young Israel]shared a name, but little else.

The Conservative group promoted the seminars, and the Orthodox group was focused on prayer. They reached a truce in 1918 and agreed to join forces in more than just name, and created a single Young Israel organization, led by Irving Bunim, who would be president of NCYI for many years.

By 1920, Bunim and his Orthodox cohort grew nervous about the Conservative wing and their increasing theological changes.

They did not like the changes in and of themselves, and these changes also prevented recognition of Young Israel by Orthodox rabbis, which would likely cause Young Israel to become a de facto branch of the Conservative movement.

The merger created two years before had also caused the Conservatives to start trying to make changes in the Synagogue arm, which had been exclusively Orthodox. He sought the help of Rabbi Bernard Revel, and was able to convince the entire Young Israel to follow Revel’s advice.

Between Revel, and extensive networking by Bunim with other potential Young Israel leaders in the Orthodox community, the Conservative rabbis, particularly Kaplan, were shut out of the entire organization, and the movement became firmly Orthodox.

====

Yeah, right.

‘Conservative’ Young Israel and ‘orthodox’ Young Israel apparently agree to MERGE in 1918, under a single name.

How would any ‘orthodox’ organisation agree to this?!

It’s obvious that the organisation was ‘Frum Reform’, right from the start!

And then from the 1920s on, Young Israel decided to ‘convert’ to orthodoxy, as part of the tried-and-true pattern of Sabbatean-Frankists finding it way easier to subvert the Jewish community from within.

====

So, it’s no coincidence that ‘Joseph Loshinsky’, defacto boss of the Kotel, is a member of a Young Israel shul that is apparently Reform / ‘modern orthodox’ / Lubavitch – all at the same time, when it’s first founded.

And it’s no coincidence, that Young Israel and ‘modern orthodoxy’ is all about pushing Reform ideas into the orthodox mainstream – because that has ALWAYS been the point of ‘modern orthodoxy’, AKA ‘Frum Reform’.

====

I’ll stop here, but for sure there is always way more to be said.

All these people, and their little charidees, and communal organisations are all connected by blood, money and idealogy.

With the Frankist-Freemason State of Israel bang in the middle of it all.

As always.

====

UPDATE:

I went to take a closer look at R’ Shmuel Rabinowitz, official rabbi of the Western Wall.

This bio comes from the JewAge website, HERE:

Rabinovitch is the son of Rabbi Chaim Yehuda Rabinovitch, av beis din of the Jerusalem Rabbinical Courts, and grandson of Rabbi Shmuel Benzion Rabinovitch (d. 1950), a Lubavitcher Hasid born in Russia who brought up six children in the Old Yishuv but died at a young age.

I’m sure you are also shocked – shocked!!!! – to learn that Shmuel Rabinowitz is affiliated with Chabad.

Who would have thought that?

====

HERE is the Hebrew Wikipedia for his father, R Chaim Yehuda Rabinovitch.

There, we learn a few more snippets about the Rabinowitz clan, like this:

  • Shmuel Rabinowitz’s grandfather and namesake, Shmuel Ben-Zion, was the ‘treasurer of Chabad in Palestine’.

(There is a whole other can of worms around ‘Kollel Chabad’ – we will BH get to it, one of these days….)

  • Shmuel’s father, Chaim Yehuda, studies at the Etz Chaim Yeshiva, the yeshiva of Toldos Avraham Yitzhak, and then at the Chabad Yeshiva Torat Emet.
  • The main rabbi he studies with at Torat Emet is a descendent of the Alter Rebbe of Chabad called R’ Shmuel Eliezer Heilprin.
  • Shmuel Eliezer’s  brother is Rabbi Levi Yitzhak Heilprin, another Lubavitcher, who founded something called  the ‘Machon Madii Technology Al Pi Halacha’ (aka The Institute for Science and Technology according to Torah law).

====

Just today, I read something about that HERE, which led me to Chananya Weissman’s channel HERE, where he was discussing THIS article, below, amongst other things:

====

Snippet:

Rabbi Moshe Avraham Halperin, head of the Machon Madii Technology Al Pi Halacha (the institute for technology according to Torah law), is an expert in medical ethics in the framework of the Torah. He explained the ethical considerations in allocating authority to the WHO.

Who is this ‘medical expert’ telling us to ‘trust the WHO’?

Why, it’s none other than Levi Yitzhak’s son, Moshe Avraham Halperin!

This screenshot from their website, HERE:

====

Isn’t it a small world?

Here’s a screenshot of some other areas of this Institute’s ‘halachic expertise’:

====

And here’s a puff-piece ‘history’ of the Institute on Youtube:

====

So, we just learnt that R’ Shmuel Rabinowitz, Chief Rabbi of the Western Wall, currently being run out of NYC by the ‘Western Wall Heritage Foundation’ (and it’s main man Joseph Loshinsky), is a Lubavitcher, from a very long line of Lubavitchers.

We also just learnt that another bunch of Lubavitchers, best friends of R’ Shmuel Rabinowitz’s dad, and direct descendants of the Alter Rebbe of Chabad, are the Halperin clan, one of whom founded The Institute for Science and Technology al pi halacha.

And that guy’s son is now telling us to ‘Trust the WHO’ – and giving that treif idea another kosher stamp of approval.

Just one big, happy family!

====

Sigh.

Really.

Can we stop pretending now, that Chabad isn’t totally running the State of Israel from behind the scenes?

And has actually been running things here for the last 200 years?

Sigh again.

TBC

Ever since my blog got infested by ‘Nathan of Gaza’, and other regular commentators on the ‘Rationalist Judaism’ site, I’ve been taking more of an interest in what’s really going on over there.

First, you can see the ‘Rationalist Judaism’ blog of Natan Slifkin HERE.

A long time ago, I used to buy Natan Slifkin’s books, including his Perek Shira.

When the chareidi world came out to ban his books for heresy, I first thought that was totally OTT and outrageous – because back then, I was a ‘modern orthodox’ who had strong opinions on things that I really knew nothing much about.

After I moved to Israel, and actually started to learn some real Torah, and to develop some real emuna about how God is running the world, and then came to understand how science and medicine is mostly built on speculation and lies – all that changed.

And I realised the ban was justified.

And I got rid of Slifkin’s books.

====

Fast forward a few years, and Slifkin starts writing the ‘Rationalist Judaism’ blog, which I tried to read a little bit, a long time ago – but had to stop, as the arrogance and heresy literally drips off each post.

And this is where the story would have ended, except somehow, some of his fan base seem to have migrated over to this blog, where they seem to spend an awful lot of time trying to pull down a lot of the investigative journalism posts I write.

====

So the last few days, I’ve been taking way more of an interest in the whole ‘rationalist Judaism’ movement, to see why people who subscribe to that way of thinking seem to be so ‘anti’ my writing, and the information I’m sharing on this blog.

Before we begin, you might want to take a look at the standard of some of the ‘information’ being shared on Slifkin’s blog, like HERE, for example, talking about ‘conspiracy theories’ at Meron.

Here’s a snippet – with my comments IN CAPS after Slifkin’s:

Here’s a nauseating claim made by someone in a comment to my post about Meron:

Have you researched the possibility that it was the government or police that was responsible for the deaths? There are countless write ups about this. Some say that the reason they were killed was so that people would say “chareidim are irresponsible” and use it as a pretext to take away power from their ideological enemies.
Why were the CCTV cameras disabled before the event?
Why were the bleachers damaged purposely in the days before the tragedy?
Why did people pour water on the slope and make it slippery?
Why did the police block off some of the exits?
Why were the police brutalising chareidim before the tragedy? On video btw.
All these need answering too.
==

This is how Slifkin responds to these very real questions:

Now, there are different ways of responding to such offensive stupidity. One is to respond, point by point, to each of the claims:
Q.Why were the CCTV cameras disabled before the event? 
A. They weren’t. There is plenty of camera coverage. [Ed. note: ALL THE INDEPENDENTLY OWNED CCTV CAMERAS WERE DISABLED BEFORE THE EVENT, LEAVING ONLY CCTV CAMERAS THAT WERE CONTROLLED BY THE POLICE.]
Q. Why were the bleachers damaged purposely in the days before the tragedy? 
A. They weren’t. They may well have been in poor condition, but that’s just because of general incompetence in maintenance. [Ed. note: THERE ARE MULTIPLE WITNESS STATEMENTS SAYING THE POLICE AND THE PEOPLE WORKING FOR THEM DELIBERATELY UNSCREWED THE BLEACHERS BEFORE MERON, ON MULTIPLE DAYS. TOLDOS AHARON WOULD SCREW THEM BACK TOGETHER, AND THE POLICE WOULD UNSCREW THEM. THERE ARE ALSO PICTURES OF THE BLEACHERS BEING ‘HELD TOGETHER’ WITH SILVER TAPE, THE NIGHT OF THE TRAGEDY, AFTER AGAIN BEING UNSCREWED.]
Q. Why did people pour water on the slope and make it slippery? 
A. They didn’t. Water was spilled, not deliberately poured. [Ed. note: I AGREE WITH THIS STATEMENT.]
Q.Why did the police block off some of the exits? 
A. To try (possibly very incompetently) to make some order in the chaos. [Ed. note: THIS HAS NO BASIS IN FACT. THE HEALTH AND SAFETY INSPECTORS DEMANDED A MINIMUM OF 4 EXITS TO BE OPEN FROM TOLDOS AHARON PLAZA, AND THE POLICE IGNORED THAT REPORT, TO DELIBERATELY CREATE A SINGLE EXIT ‘BOTTLENECK’.]
Q. Why were the police brutalising chareidim before the tragedy?
A. Fights between police and charedim happen all the time. (It’s generally because of extremist charedim that misbehave, as can be seen in plenty of videos from this week alone.) [Ed note: AGAIN, THIS IS SUBJECTIVE OPINION BEING PASSED OFF AS FACT. AND SLIFKIN APPARENTLY HAS NO PROBLEM WITH POLICE BEATING UP UNARMED INDIVIDUALS, INCLUDING WOMEN AND CHILDREN, FOR THE ‘CRIME’ OF A) BEING CHAREIDI AND B) WANTING TO PRAY AT A HOLY SITE.]
====
If posts like this were unusual, we’d stop here.
But sadly, they aren’t. So I got to wondering, how come this Slifkin guy is always writing anti-chareidi, pro-State of Israel propaganda?
Last I checked, he doesn’t work for known government propaganda outlets like YWN and Israel National News…..
Yet his ‘output’ on the Rationalist Judaism blog is prodigious.
====

As usual, the first place I started was to ‘follow the money’.

In this case, I ‘followed the money’ to Natan Slifkin’s Biblical Museum of Natural History, in Bet Shemesh.

You can find the site for that HERE – here’s a screenshot of the About page:

====

I got to this organisation via this post on Slifkin’s blog, which really upset me, for obvious reasons:

====

Chortle chortle!!

Stupid chareid women, who still believe that God created the world in six days like it says in the Torah, instead of believing what the far more intelligent scientists and ‘rationalist Jews’ say!!

====

So, after discovering all the Reform-Frankist funders behind other ‘anti-chareidi’ groups in the ‘pretend orthodox’ world, I decided to take a closer look at who is ponying up the cash to fund the Biblical Museum of Natural History, and who is on its board.

====

The first name on that list is ‘Lee Samson’.

It’s actually very hard to learn much about him, but he seems to be the same ‘Lee Samson’ listed below, on the LittleSis website HERE:

As well as funding Natan Slifkin’s museum, Lee Samson is apparently a big fundraiser for Trump, too.

This snippet comes from an article entitled A look at the wealthy supporters funding Trump’s transition, back in 2016:

On December 7, Donald Trump is set to host a $5,000-a-head breakfast that will raise money for Trump for America, a group that is helping to fund the president-elect’s transition. The fundraiser, which will be help at an undisclosed location in New York, includes 60 hosts….[including]

Lee Samson: CEO of SnF Management, a healthcare facility management company in California.

====

Here he’s mentioned again, on a Reddit discussion from a few years back about a President Trump visit to LA:

 

====

I went to check out the website of Samson’s ‘Windsor Healthcare Management’ HERE.

The first thing I clicked on was their updated advice for visitors, screenshot below:

====

Why this matters:

IFFFF a blogger is receiving hundreds of thousands of shekels from funders who are in the mainstream ‘healthcare business’; and who have close links to political figures like Trump and former Ambassador David Friedman, you can bet your bottom dollar that this person is not going to write anything that could jeopardise that funding.

If we go back to the Rational Judaism blog, we find that Slifkin has been a huge advocate for masking, and testing, and ‘vaccinating’ during the Covid 19 plandemic.

It’s possible he really came to that position from his own ‘rationalist wisdom’ (ahem).

And, it’s also possible that even if he was totally against masking, testing and vaccinating, he’d never actually have come out and said that, when he has major funders with some sizeable skin in that whole game.

A bribe blinds the eyes of the wise.

Or to rephrase:

A bribe can even blind the eyes of the rational.

====

Let’s move on.

The next name on the list at Slifkin’s museum is: Rabbi Yitzchak Adlerstein.

Here’s some relevant snippets from his Wikipedia page:

Adlerstein served in an advisory and honorary position as one of the founding trustees of the Association for Jewish Outreach Programs (AJOP, known at the time as The Association for Jewish Outreach Professionals), delivering lectures and workshops to Orthodox Jewish outreach rabbis.

Adlerstein studied and received his advanced rabbinical ordination from the Yeshivas Chofetz Chaim in New York. He is a summa cum laude graduate of Queens College, and a member of Phi Beta Kappa.

Adlerstein is the director of Interfaith Affairs for the Simon Wiesenthal Center… and teaches senior high school girls at Yeshiva University High Schools of Los Angeles.

He writes regularly for the Cross-Currents blog….

During the Slifkin controversy over how Orthodoxy views evolution, Adlerstein was quoted in the New York Times supporting Rabbi Slifkin, who faced intense pressures from Haredi rabbis to withdraw his books.

====

Lee Samson is also a trustee for the Simon Wiesenthal Centre.

And you remember what I said, about ‘interfaith pushers’ always being a big, red flag that something not so kosher is going on?

You can get to the Association for Jewish Outreach Programs (AJOP) Wikipedia page HERE.

Hey, would you look at that!

We are right back with the ‘open orthodoxy-pusher‘ Shlomo Riskin, and the AVI CHAI Foundation again, key players in the whole ‘ortho-fem’ movement we’ve been writing about here on the blog.

AVI CHAI is a big funder of ITIM, the organisation trying to ‘shatter orthodoxy’s’ grip on conversions in Israel that we wrote about HERE.

And HERE is where we talked bout how Shlomo Riskin keeps turning up in the middle of all this stuff again and again again:

====

We will come back to AVI CHAI and also the Simon Wiesenthal Centre another time.

I have a feeling there is way more going on with these two organisations than is currently obvious.

Moving on.

====

The next name on the list at Slifkin’s museum is:

Dr Chaim Gelbfish

Within two seconds of googling that, I get to THIS snippet from an Ami Magazine puff piece on JOWMA:

Next I ask Mimi Knoll about her background and involvement in JOWMA as its president.

“I grew up in Brooklyn. My mother is Dr. Chana Gelbfish, a well-known pediatrician in Flabush. My father is Dr. Chaim Gelbfish, a vascular surgeon and one of the medical directors of Hatzalah. My parents both have their offices in the house where I grew up. They always loved being doctors, taking care of patients and giving back to the community.

====

(That is the same Hatzalah who did nothing for 10 minutes, while 45 people got crushed to death literally next to their wooden ‘Hatzalah Hut’, at the bottom of the stairs in Meron….)

====

Now, go and read THIS article written in November 2021 by Chananya Weissman, entitled: ‘Unmasking JOWMA’.

Snippet:

In March of 2019 an organization called the Jewish Orthodox Women’s Medical Association (JOWMA) was founded in New York. The cover story is that a 24-year-old medical student by the name of Eliana Fine started it to “support, provide mentorship, and advance the careers of Jewish female physicians and trainees”, whatever that’s supposed to mean.

That same month, this nascent organization founded by students issued a “statement on vaccination” that was published in the Orthodox Jewish media. After railing against “false information regarding the safety and efficacy of vaccinations”, JOWMA made the following radical declarations:

  1. Non-vaccination is antithetical to the core beliefs of Orthodox Judaism.
  2. There are no religious exemptions from vaccination within Orthodox Judaism.

====

Who is funding JOWMA?

Chananya does a good job of trying to track down that information – but even though they are taking out massive full-page ads and getting ‘puff pieces’ inserted across the frum Jewish media…. that information is mostly hidden.

Here’s another snippet, which might give us a clue where ‘JOWMA’ is really coming from:

Paige Herman and Miriam Andrusier became the first same-sex couple from Downstate to attend Harvard together. Andrusier is a JOWMA Advisory Board Member.

====

Are you noticing a theme?

Moving on.

====

I can’t find anything – at all – that could give a clue as to who ‘Dr Charles Hall’ is, or why he’s on the board of the Biblical Natural History Museum in Bet Shemesh.

Next on the list is ‘Ron Hersh’, who I think is probably this guy, screenshot from (HERE):

====

He’s the founder of a RAJE, which stands for ‘Russian American Jewish Experience’.

HERE‘s the website.

In the above pic, he’s getting a prize from the notorious UJA Fed of New York, that was founded by none other than close relative of Jacob Frank himself, Felix Warburg, who we mentioned HERE.

How he made his money, who he really is – I don’t know. But he sure likes Natan Slifkin and ‘rational Judaism’.

====

Moving on.

I can’t find anything much for Dr Steven Weiss, except that he appears to live in LA, and has opinions on the practise of metzitzah b’al peh, performed during a circumcision of a Jewish baby boy.

See THIS article for more, very interesting, details.

(We may come back to the article in a future post, it contains links to a LOT of Frankists and their cohorts, who were trying to sabotage this mitzvah 150 years ago. There is literally nothing new under the sun.)

====

Point is this:

Whenever you scratch the surface of these ‘modern orthodox’ / ‘rational Judaism’ people, you come back to exactly the same ‘Frum-Reform’, ‘Frankist-Zionist’ organisations, and people, and agendas, again and again and again.

====

Why does all this matter?

Slifkin has a new book out, and is getting the sort of positive media attention you only get in the Jewish world, when you are giving the Frankist-Freemasons something they want.

Like this:

 

====

Who is this guy to tell ANYONE what ‘Judaism should look like’?

Who is this guy, that all these strange people and American philanthropists are ponying up millions of shekels to build him his own museum in Bet Shemesh?

People like Natan Slifkin are not independent.

They are not ‘free thinkers’, whatever the image they are trying to portray.

They are just Trojan horses, pushing whatever heretical ideas their backers want them to push, on an unsuspecting frum public.

There is nothing new under the sun.

And in the meantime, the battle for the soul of the Jewish people rages on.

Until this week, I haven’t been able to see my parents for 4 years.

There was a family batmitzvah in London planned for the month ‘Covid’ really kicked off, back in 2020, and all travel got shut down. We were all waiting to meet up again at that – and that didn’t happen.

And then, with all the fascist rules about ‘green passports’ that they were trying to enforce for a year… going to London was off the cards.

I told my mum, when they get rid of all the PCR testing at Ben Gurion, I will immediately book a ticket and come and see you.

Ben Gurion dropped the PCR tests at midnight last Friday. So Sunday morning, I was off to London.

==

The first 12 hours, I was appreciating the fact that I could actually speak to people, and they would probably understand what I was saying. (Mostly….) I was loving seeing my extended family again. I was kind of liking the green trees everywhere.

But then.

A strange thing happened.

After that first day, I just started to feel that the whole place was dragging me down, emotionally and spiritually.

==

I was standing in one of the millions of kosher bakeries on Golders Green Road, debating whether I should have a vegetarian sausage roll ‘for old times sake’ – when the spell suddenly broke.

Why would I eat this stodgy, unhealthy food, when I just feel ill afterwards?

That’s when I realised that the whole place is built on appearances of stuff that ‘looks good’ – but actually just makes you sick.

What do you do in places like London, except obsess over houses, holidays – and pastry?

====

Long story short, at the end of the three days there, me and my husband both felt that when the Rambam wrote that mitzvot don’t really ‘count’, in chul, and that they only reason Jews continue to do them there is so they won’t forget how to do them when they return to Eretz Yisrael – he was totally right.

Everything there felt so empty.

So meaningless.

So pointless.

So disconnected from God.

====

Just before I left London for good, 17 years ago, I had what most people considered to be a ‘perfect’ life.

Prestigious job, relatively nice house, nice family, lots of friends, nice clothes, blahdy blah.

But I literally felt so unhappy there, that I kept telling my husband that if we didn’t find a way to move out of London, I felt like I wasn’t going to last out another year.

At the time, that seemed like hyperbole and drama-queen-ness.

But now, having spent three days there, I can see how on some level, there was no exaggeration going on.

Because your soul just gets so unhappy in these places – even when Kosher Kingdom is packed full of more glatt gourmet chocolate than you get even in Jerusalem.

====

I know I have readers who live in chul.

And I know many of them are on a way higher level, spiritually, than I am.

But this is what I feel:

The shechinah has left chutz l’aretz.

==

Israel right now is full of problems and issues.

Chock full, of problems and issues, while we all wait for this Erev Rav State to finally fall apart, and be replaced by something so, so much better.

But here is what I realised, this last week:

All the tumah in Israel is totally not shiyach  to either the place, or the people.

It’s like a mask, a costume, that looks pretty convincing externally, but which can and will dissolve instantly, as soon as God decides that we have reached that stage, as a people.

It’s not like that in chul.

Even the ‘holiest’ places in chul – like Golders Green – are still based on tumah and feel empty of kedusha.

And even the most tumah-dik places in Eretz Yisrael are still based on kedusha, and that holiness can and will shine through very soon.

====

I’m not telling you to move or stay.

I’m just sharing how it looks to me, through my subjective lens.

====

Before I went for that trip, I put a question into the Rav, Rav Berland, about whether it was OK for me to leave Eretz Yisrael even just for three days, to go and visit my parents, as we live in such crazy times at the moment.

The answer I got back surprised me:

The Rav said that England is in danger of war and there is a lot of antisemitism.

But if you are just visiting parents and not roaming around it’s ok. You could go and you have nothing to worry about.

====

I discussed that surprising statement that ‘England is in danger of war’ with my brother, when I got there.

He told me he agreed – but explained that the ‘war’ he thinks is coming to the UK is a civil war, not a war from external forces.

Inflation is officially running at 7 1/2% – and he says that real inflation is probably twice that.

The cost of living is skyrocketing as I type, with energy bills doubling and even tripling for many of the poorest people, who were struggling to get buy even before that.

The pound is tanking, and my brother explained that if they don’t start to put interest rates up in the UK, sterling’s future as a ‘serious currency’ will effectively be over.

But putting interests up in any serious way is going to torpedo the stock market, and also house prices there.

==

My brother analyses these sort of trends for a living.

He knows what he’s talking about.

====

At the same time, my niece in JFS told me that 10% of her school is now ‘coming out’ as either gay or ‘trans’.

And that she has to deal with a boy in her sports class who ‘self-identifies as a girl’ and is now in the girls’ changing room.

All of the girls feel pretty uncomfortable having to get undressed in front of him.

But there is nothing they can do, because the girls’ right to maintain basic rules of tznius, and female dignity, are being completely trampled by anti-Torah ‘woke’ culture.

====

Personally, I think things really can’t get too much worse, before Moshiach has to come.

My husband disagrees. He thinks there is still quite a way to go, and that the whole of society, as we know it, first has to crumble into the dust, before most people will be open to geulamamash.

I guess as things continue to play out, we’ll find out who is more on the mark.

====

So, today I’m back in Jerusalem.

And today, I am feeling so grateful that even though I don’t own my home, and I don’t earn money, and I can’t properly speak the language, and the police here are homicidal psychos, and the politicians are all evil, and I still haven’t worked out where to get comfy pants here – dayenu.

I am in the best place in the world.

And I am so grateful to Hashem, that He got me out of London 17 years ago, and brought me to the Holy Land.

====

I have a lot of stuff to get on with, here on the blog.

But I’m still taking it easy here, until after Shavuot.

Which coincides this year with ramping up the 5…G to 26 ghz, that frequency that has never been properly tested on humans, and is likely to cause a whole range of very serious health issues to a whole bunch of people, including skin lesions, which will then be blamed on ‘Monkey Pox’.

Or whatever.

(If you go HERE, you’ll find a recent report from the CDC, explaining how 5…G radiation can cause the eruption of lesions on the skin, aka ‘cutaneous radiation injury’.)

The world of lies continues still, for now.

But very soon….it’s going to fall.

Let’s learn more about these ‘Jewish-Christians’, and see how they’ve been shaping history behind the scenes.

(You can read Part 1 HERE.)

First, a note on the sources for this information.

Much of it has been gathered together in a book called ‘The Secret Legacy of Jesus: The Judaic Teachings That Passed From James the Just to the Founding Fathers’, written by Lutheran Minister and adjunct Professor of world religions at Penn State, Jeffrey Butz.

In turn, one of the main places where Butz got his info was from a work written by ‘Hebrew Christian’ Hugh Schonfield, called The History of Jewish Christianity, (1937).

You can read that HERE.

====

Before we continue, I went to check out ‘Hugh Schonfield’ on geni, to see who he’s related to.

I hit the motherlode.

HERE is where you can see his profile on geni.

If you keep clicking back on his mother’s side, you get to a whole bunch of ‘Cohens’, ‘Boas’s’ and ‘Goldschmidts’.

====

Because I’ve been eating and sleeping these family trees for two years, I can tell you that the ‘Boas’ family were very wealthy parnessim in Amsterdam; they were known Sabbateans – and they were also the supporters of the Goldschmidt bankers in London, and the ‘bad Baal Shem’ of London, Dr Samuel Chaim Falk.

Here’s the relevant snippet from THIS post:

Falk’s main financial backers in Amsterdam were the wealthy Sabbatean ‘Boas’ family – now conveniently scrubbed out of Jewish history (possibly because Frank’s second wife may have been a ‘Boas’.)

Falk’s main financial backers in London were the Goldschmidt banker-brothers, and he also hangs out with the ‘Chief Rabbi’ David Tebele Schiff.

====

Falk is the guy who began the ‘Order of the Golden Dawn’, and who also encouraged the creation of a bunch more secret societies like the Asiatic Brotherhood – all practising black magic, and preaching a creed of ‘universalism’.

Here’s another pertinent snippet:

Falk spent the last 5 years of his life on developing a ‘Judeo-Christian Freemasonry’, where Jews wouldn’t be pressured to convert to Christianity.

It looks like this was the ‘Egyptian Rites Freemasonry’ that was later ‘marketed’, if you can call it that, by Falk’s protege Cagliostro (aka Joseph Balsamo from Italy, who may well have been another Sabian-Sabbatean, even before he met Falk.)….

Remember, Frank was the son-in-law of ‘Dr Falk’, and the putative father of Falk’s six grand-daughters – all of whom married back into the ‘orthodox’ Jewish community of secret Sabbateans….

Defacto, Falk created a ‘new mystical religion, which would…transcend all sectarian divisions.”

====

OK, let’s get back to ‘Hebrew Christian’ Hugh Schonfield’s family tree.

If you trace it back, you see that he descends from the ‘who’s who’ of court Jews and Sabbatean-Frankists from the last 400 years, who I ‘ve been writing about here for months.

Gluckel of Hameln is in there; there are ‘Schwabs’ in there; there are tons of ‘Goldschmidts‘ and ‘Bacharachs’ in there, there are ‘Spiras’ and ‘Hildesheimers‘ in there.

And there are also ‘Rothschilds’ in there – the real family tree, not all the fakes ones I’ve been ploughing through the last few months.

If you go HERE, and click ‘direct descendants’ mode on geni, it will show you how the original surname of the Rothschild family was BACHARACH.

It will also show you that the Rothschild bankers ‘descend’ from the famous court Jew, Josel of Rosheim (Loanz).

====

We came across ‘Josel of Rosheim’ recently on the blog, here:

Akiva of Salonica, Ephraim Fishel, and ‘Christian Jews’

Snippet from there:

We know ‘Hayyim Samuel Jacob Falk’ well.

He’s the demon-commanding, black-magic practising, Order of the Golden Dawn-founding father-in-law of false messiah Jacob Frank….

And ‘Eliyahu the Baal Shem of Worms’ – aka Eliyahu Loanz – is also related to another famous tax-collecting Court Jew, namely Josel of Rosheim.

(Josel of Rosheim’s family were also accused of performing satanic ritual murders.… All this is starting to hit very close to home, isn’t it?)

====

This is the same family that ‘the Rothschilds’ descend from.

This is the same family that ‘Hebrew Christian’ Hugh Schonfield descends from.

And Hugh Schonfield is the guy who wrote a book explaining the true history of ‘Jewish Christians’, over the last 2,000 years.

You see how all this hangs together more and more, the more facts we uncover?

====

So now, let’s quote a little from Hugh Schonfield’s book, before I go back into ‘summing up Jewish-Christian history’ mode.

Gentile Christianity has been intelligibly enough preoccupied with its own rise to power and influence, and in the first flush of that power it sought by anathema, suppression and wholesale destruction of documents to overthrow the witness of Jewish Christianity…. Far from becoming a futile anachronism, its spirit and human activity has persisted until the present day, and is even now undergoing a revival on a scale unknown since apostolic times.

Jewish Christianity has always existed to supply that of which the Church has stood in need — the Messianic vision…. if the true preaching of the Kingdom of God had been carried out according to the Gospel injunction, the horrors of warfare would have long since ceased between so-called Christian countries. The only diplomatic corps that Europe would require would be “ambassadors for Christ.”

====

Plain English: ‘Jewish Christianity’ has always existed, despite the persecution of the Catholic Church, and it’s follower consider it to be the ‘authentic’ version of xtianity.

And the guy who is writing its history is descended from all those ‘court Jews’ with strange xtian links, and ties to other false messiahs like Shabtai Tzvi / SHACH and Jacob Frank, who in turn have been clearly linked to the Freemasons and other secret societies on this blog.

====

Now, it’s time to fill in a bit more ‘Jewish-Christian’ history.

The following outline follows that set out in Butz’s book.

====

In 313 CE, Constantine’s ‘Edict of Milan’ sets the scene to start treating ‘mainstream’ – i.e. gentile / pagan – xtianity more kindly.

At the same time, that means that the Jewish-Christian groups like the Ebionites, and the ‘breakaway’, more gnostic Elkecaites, start to be persecuted very seriously, to stamp out their ‘heresy’.

One Elkecaite who has a Jewish father and Persian mother, Mani, moves up to the more religiously tolerant Sassanid empire of the Persians, and creates another version of so-called ‘Jewish-xtianity’ but with a way more pronounced, devil-worshipping Gnostic creed.

This becomes known as ‘Manicheanism’ – and before Islam shows up, is a serious rival to the Catholic and Byzantine churches, in terms of how many adherents it has.

Butz writes on page 256 that it was:

‘likely that the Desposyni [i.e. Jesus’ blood relatives] were leaders of the Elkesaites in Mesopotamia’, and in contact with Mani.

====

Conventional history says all these Jewish-xtian groups including the Ebionites and Elkecaites ‘disappear’.

But, there are traces of the Ebionites in Saudi Arabia still, even in the 11th and 12th centuries.

And the xtian-gnostic groups who don’t believe that Yoshki was fully divine are said to have ‘Arian tendencies’.

Take note of that term: Arian.

====

In the meantime, these evolving Jewish-xtian groups start to organise themselves more like a ‘secret society’, thanks in part to all the persecution.

The Manicheans, for example, now divide into the elite ‘Elect’ – who know all the secrets – and the ‘Listeners’.

The ‘Elect’ are:

‘[E]ntrusted with the furthering of Mani’s mission, and they were bound to a strict ascetism including vegetarianism and celibacy’.

(Just to confuse us all more, sometimes these Manicheans are also known as ‘Mandeans’, and also as ‘Sabians’.)

====

In the meantime, many of these underground Jewish-xtians seem to migrate further North, particularly settling in the South of France.

Butz writes that there is a Jewish state in that area at that time, called ‘Septimania’.

Personally, this whole idea needs a lot of double-checking, going forward, because this is exactly the same period of time that ‘Khazaria’ had a lot of renegade (Sadducee / Karaite) Jews from Babylonia move up, as we covered in previous posts HERE and HERE and HERE.

So either the same sort of thing happened twice, in both ‘Septimania’ and ‘Khazar’, or Septimania is being used as a historical decoy.

====

Point is, the ‘Jewish-xtians’ were still going strong.

And over the next few centuries, Manicheanism (the more gnostic version of ‘Jewish-Christianity) starts to ‘morph’ again, into three specific movements, called:

The PAULICIANS – based out of Armenia, around the 6th century CE.

The MESSALIANS (also known as Euchites) – based in and around Mesopotamia, from the 4th century on

The BOGOMILS – began around the 10th century, and quickly spread throughout much of Europe.

====

This snippet is from HERE:

Bogomilism was a Christian neo-Gnostic or dualist sect founded in the First Bulgarian Empire by the priest Bogomil during the reign of Tsar Peter I in the 10th century….

The Bogomils called for a return to what they considered to be early spiritual teaching, rejecting the ecclesiastical hierarchy.

Their primary political tendencies were resistance to the state and church authorities. This helped the movement spread quickly in the Balkans, gradually expanding throughout the Byzantine Empire and later reaching Kievan Rus’, Bosnia, Dalmatia, Serbia, Italy, and France (Cathars).

They did not use the Christian cross, nor build churches, as they revered their [own bodies] and considered their body to be the temple. This gave rise to many forms of practice to cleanse oneself through purging, fasting, celebrating and dancing.

====

Meanwhile, this snippet from HERE shows how more of the evil practices that came to be the hallmarks of these devil-worshipping ‘Jewish-Christian’ sects were being rumoured, even a thousand years ago:

 Michael Psellos, a Byzantine monk, accused Bogomils and Euchites of orgiastic practices such as incest and homosexuality.

Furthermore, he argued that children born from these promiscuous activities were brought before a Satanic assembly after eight days, offered up to Satan and then cannibalistically eaten…. Euthymios Zigabenos is another source for these accusations.

The idea of these unholy acts can be tracked back to alleged practices of certain Gnostic sects.

====

Jacob Frank was hanging out with some Bogomils in Podolia / Ukraine.

This snippet comes from a post called ‘False Messiahs’:

  • The ancient sect of Jewish-Gnostic-Sabians were known to be present and active in the Ukraine / Podolia, at the time that “Frankism” really took off.

“Has’sidism and Frankism… belong to the long chain of heretic sects that goes back to the early Christians and the Gnostics…..from that remote corner of eastern Europe, the forest and mountain country of eastern Galicia and the adjoining Ukraine which saw the last offsprings of gnostic Manicheism and the Bogomils.

====

There is so much to unpick and sort here, the information can become overwhelming – even for me!

So for the rest of this post, let’s just focus on one area where these underground ‘Jewish-xtian-gnostic’ groups really took off: Northern Italy, and the South of France.

In these areas, the Bogomils influenced a new movement called the ‘CATHARS’, which suddenly appeared out of nowhere in the 11th century.

This snippet comes from HERE:

As Dualists, Cathars believed in two principles, a good god and his evil adversary (much like God and Satan of mainstream Christianity).

The good principle had created everything immaterial (good, permanent, immutable) while the bad principle had created everything material (bad, temporary, perishable).

Cathars called themselves simply Christians; their neighbours distinguished them as “Good Christians”. The Catholic Church called them Albigenses, or less frequently. Cathars.

====

Before we go on, I want to underline that ‘Good xtian’ thing, because the Cathars called themselves ‘Bon hommes’.

The Ebionites before them called themselves ‘Tobim’, or tovim – good.

And here’s one of those weird hook-ups that kind of makes a very big point, in a very simple way.

On geni, you see that the progenitor of the Goldschmidts and the Rothschilds (and Hugh Schonfield’s ancestor….) is called ‘Joseph de Bonne’ – ‘Joseph the good’. And that he hails from France – the same region as the Cathars.

====

But here is where we see he has a ‘double identify’:

====

In this version, Joseph de Bonne is called ‘Joseph HaLevy Goldschmidt Stadthagen’.

And that family tree leads us straight to ‘Jewish rabbinic royalty’, plus a whole bunch more court Jews, including the Oppenheimers.

(I will be unpicking this family tree for months….)

====

Back to the Cathars.

Here’s another telling snippet about what this Jewish-Christian-Gnostic group actually believed:

[The Cathars] largely regarded men and women as equals, and had no doctrinal objection to contraceptioneuthanasia or suicide. In some respects the Cathar and Catholic Churches were polar opposites. For example the Cathar Church taught that all non-procreative sex was better than any procreative sex. The Catholic Church taught – as it still teaches – exactly the opposite.

Following their tenet, Catholics concluded that masturbation was a far greater sin than rape (as mediaeval penitentials confirm). Following their principles, Cathars could deduce that sexual intercourse between man and wife was more culpable than homosexual sex.

====

Does any of this sound familiar?

Most of the nobles and aristocracy in the South of France become Cathars in the 11th and 12th century.

And most of the people.

So much so, that the Catholic Church was almost totally replaced. Pope Innocent III doesn’t like that – at all! – so he organises a crusade against the Cathars in the South of France, which comes to be known as the Albigensian Crusade.

It began in 1209, lasted 20 years – and killed a million people.

====

Who else is hanging out in ‘Cathar France’ at this point?

  1. The Knights Templar
  2. The Knights Hospitaller

These groups don’t participate in the crusade against the ‘Cathars’.

Interestingly, this is also the same time and place where we find RASHI (1040-1105 CE), and his group of scholars.

====

Butz claims that RASHI was a frequent and welcome guest at Count Hugo De Payens Court, in Troyes.

That’s a claim that needs more double-checking.

But what IS true, is that Hugo de Payens (1070-1136) was the first Grand Master of the Knights Templar, who set up shop in the Holy Land.

====

And so we see there is a lot of cross-over with these ‘Jewish-Christian-Gnostics’, and Eretz Yisrael.

In his book, Butz comments on the fact that the Knights Templar effectively become the first ‘multinational corporation’ in the World, and also set up the first real international banking system.

Honestly, I need to do a whole separate post about ‘Knights Templars’ and modern-day freemasonry, because there’s a lot of information to consider.

But let’s sum up the main points, from this post.

====

RECAP:

  • Hugh Schonfield is a ‘Hebrew Christian’, who writes The History of Jewish Christianity, in 1937.
  • He’s also related to the Boas, Cohen and Goldschmidt families, known to be a) court Jews, parnassim and b) wealthy supporters of Shabtai Tzvi, Dr Samuel Chaim Falk, and Jacob Frank.
  • Gnostic-Jewish-Christianity has been going on for the last 2,000 years, and particularly popped up again in France in the 11th and 12th century, as part of the ‘Cathars’ movement, that was put down by the Catholic Church.
  • The Knights Templars also began in France, at the same time that the Cathars was going strong.
  • Meanwhile, the Gnostic-Jewish-Christian ‘Bogomils’ had a very strong presence in Kievan-Rus – what is today known as Ukraine – amongst other places.
  • False messiah Jacob Frank was apparently in touch with these ‘Bogomils’ in Podolia.
  • So many of the ‘court Jews’, including the Rothschilds, appear to be connected to these ‘Jewish-Christian’ groups, who maintained a belief in Yoshki for the last 2,000 years, whilst trying to stay ‘culturally Jewish’.
  • The movement of Mani in the 4th century is when the ‘Jewish-Christian’ group called the Elkecaites really started to incorporate more devil-worshipping, ‘dualistic’ beliefs, that basically state there is a ‘good God’ and a ‘bad God’, chas v’halila, and that the ‘bad God’ is the one who created the material world.
  • This Gnostic belief system also teaches that ‘releasing’ people from their human body (i.e. killing them….) is the biggest kindest you can do for someone, and the way to achieve spiritual ‘Nirvana’.
  • So, instead of blaming the Jews for all the world’s ills, all the anti-semites out there can hopefully now start to understand that it is ‘believers in Christ’ who are really causing so much of the evil in the world, and mamash worshipping the devil. (A person can hope….)

====

There is still so much to write, not least about how all this ties in with people like Jonathan Eybshutz, and his censorship of the Talmud and gnostic-xtian tendencies.

And also, how it connects back to Dr Falk, and his ‘Order of the Golden Dawn’.

And also, how the Armenian church fits into this – with it’s ‘all seeing eye’ symbolism and connection to the Old City of Jerusalem, and the Templars, and the Armenian convert who lived in Jerusalem at the time of Yoshki, etc, Queen Helene of Adiabene.

And last but not least, where the whole question of ‘Christian Zionism’ and the State of Israel fit into this picture.

I guess we’ll get to all that in due course.

But in the next post, I want to go back to the beginning, to see if we can get a clearer picture of when Yoshki was actually alive, and what else was happening in the Jewish world, at that time.

I think we’ll learn some very interesting things.

This is probably going to be one of the most important posts I’ve put together.

The last couple of weeks, I’ve been doing a ‘deep dive’ on learning what happened to the early xtian movement in Eretz Yisrael – and what I learned is a game-changer. Not least, for all those xtians out there who keep trying to blame everything that’s going wrong in the world on ‘the Jews’.

If you look online, there is now alarming amounts of hatred against Jews, and their so-called ‘synagogue of Satan’ coming out of the woodwork in the alt-media, and particularly on sites and associated with fundamentalist xtians.

But as we’re about to learn, all the stuff they are blaming on ‘Jewish bankers’, etc, can actually be traced to a group of people who are NOT Jews – and haven’t been for 2,000 years.

Rather, they are the descendants of various branches of ‘Jewish Christians’, who were oppressed by both the Roman Catholic and Byzantine (Greek Orthodox) churches – and so went underground.

Because there is a lot of ground to cover, I’m going to format this post as bullet points, and keep things very tight. There’s a LOT of implications from this information, but we’ll cover that in more detail – or not – in future posts.

Ready?

Let’s begin.

====

INTRO:

Where are all these ‘Jewish Christians’ coming from?

Off the back of the posts making the connections between ‘Shabtai Tzvi’ and the SHACH, and also, how the Sadducees seem to have morphed into the Karaites, and the Karaite connection to ‘Khazar’, I started researching where all this overlap between the core Jewish community and these ‘Jewish xtians’ court Jews actually began.

The answer is shocking:

It began literally 2,000 years ago, and has continued ever since.

In order to understand what is really going on in our own community, and how it’s been so compromised for so long, I had to start learning about what was really going on in the first three centuries of the xtian church.

That is the information I’m going to share with you now – as even most xtians have no idea about what was really going on back then.

====

FACT 1: Many of the first apostles and ‘early church fathers’ were actually Jesus’s brothers.

For now, we are going to park the discussion of whether Yoshki was fathered by a Roman soldier, or not, and all the other discussions you find in places like the Toldot Yeshu, about him being a mamzer. I will cover this angle in another post.

Also, it seems obvious that Jesus was married, and did have his own children – but again we’ll cover that in more detail in another post, if required.

What is beyond question, and what is even clearly mentioned in the New Testament is that Jesus had a bunch of brothers.

And most of his family members were part of his movement, and were part of his group of 12 apostles.

All the blood relatives of Yoshki are known by the term ‘Desposyni’.

We will come back to this angle of the story another time.

====

FACT 2: Jesus was only made ‘divine’ and the product of a miraculous virgin birth after 325 CE.

That’s when the Roman Emperor Constantine formally adopted xtianity as the religion of the Roman Empire – and basically suppressed a whole bunch of historical information about who Yoshki really was, in order to make ‘Roman’ xtianity a better ‘fit’ with pagan views.

Until that point, it was widely known that Yoshki was married; and that most of the church’s founding fathers were his family members.

In fact, the Romans had spent the last 2-300 years trying to track down Yoshki’s family members so they could eradicate them, to try and prevent the movement from growing and spreading.

====

FACT 3: There were deep divisions between the members of the early church.

After Yoshki’s death, the movement was headed up by his brother ‘James’ (Ya’acov), who was proclaimed the first ‘bishop’ of Jerusalem.

Now, there’s a lot of strange things going on with James, so I’m just going to mention some of them, with the understanding that the research is still a work in progress, and that there is so much deliberate disinformation going on, we may never really know the total truth.

James appears to have been a priest in the Temple, maybe even an alternate ‘High Priest’.

If this is true, then that also makes ‘Yoshki’ a Cohen, and it also starts to link up with the heretical priests who schismed out as ‘Sadduccees’, ‘Boethusians’, and Essenes.

==

‘Bishop James’ and the rest of Yoshki’s family were observant, orthodox Jews – who believed that Yoshki was the moshiach.

After Yoshki died, in whichever way he died, they expected him to ‘rise from the dead’ and complete his mission of bringing the geula.

They had their main ‘Jewish Christian’ synagogue on Mount Zion, apparently next to the current Tomb of David, and the Armenian Church up the road claims to be built on the ruin of James’ old house.

‘Bishop James’ continued leading the movement in Jerusalem for 30 years after Yoshki’s death (I’m deliberately leaving dates out, as that’s something I need to look at in a separate post.) 

The New Testament teaches that James was thrown off the ‘pinnacle of the temple’ into the Kidron Valley – i.e. he was apparently stoned to death, by being shoved off the temple walls.

====

There is a xtian tradition that ‘Bishop James’, Yoshki’s brother, was buried close by in a tomb that archeologists later identified as belonging to a priestly family from the time of the Maccabees called ‘Bene Hezir’.

If James and Yoshki were actually cohanim, there are more possible links.

And in terms of the timing of all this, the Jewish sources that have Yoshki as the student of Yehoshua Ben Perachya suggest everything happened at least 100 years earlier than xtianity says.

Lastly, ‘Bene Hezir’ could actually be read ‘Bene HAZIR’ – the sons of a pig.

Which kind of fits the whole story.

But I digress.

====

Yoshki and the earliest xtians are persecuted by the Jewish community in Jerusalem, because they are heretics.

It’s not even so much that Yoshki and his followers believe that he’s the ‘moshiach’ – although that becomes a huge problem after he’s actually dead.

And it’s not even so much that Yoshki is using black magic to do his miracles and ‘persuade’ more and more Jews to follow him and his movement, although these acts were also punishable by death.

The bigger problem is that Yoshki is mamash trying to set up a new religion, and to come away from the Torah.  He claims that large parts of the Torah weren’t written by God, and so don’t need to be followed (just like Reform….). His biggest ‘problem’ is the sacrificial service in the Temple, which he and his followers are continually railing against.

And that ‘anti sacrifice’, anti -Torah vibe continues throughout the New Testament.

====

That said, Yoshki and ‘Bishop James’ are only interested in creating this new religion for Jews, and they still expect all new converts to xtianity to keep kosher and shabbat, to pay some sort of ‘lip service’ respect to the Torah, and to become circumcised.

====

One of the biggest persecutors of Yoshki at this time is ‘Saul of Tarsus’.

Long story short, long after Yoshki’s death, ‘Saul of Tarsus’ says he has an epiphany on the road to Damascus, and is now a big believer in Yoshki, who calls himself ‘Paul’.

‘Bishop James’ and the rest of Yoshki’s family and followers don’t really believe him, and don’t really trust him, but at least initially, he’s making a very good show of being sincere, so they kind of ‘go with it’.

From Jewish sources, it seems very likely that ‘Saul / Paul’ was actually deliberately trying to take ‘xtianity’ away from the Jewish community, and to make a deliberate break between ‘xtianity’ and Judaism.

And he does that very well.

He goes on a lot of ‘missions’ preaching xtianity to non-Jewish communities all over the place – but basically teaches that it’s enough just to believe in Yoshki, and people don’t have to get circumcised, or keep the other commandments for Jews.

====

Long story short:

Before long, there is a huge divide in the early xtian church.

‘Bishop James’ and his group of ‘Jewish Christians’ are on one side of it, and still expecting new recruits to ‘become Jews’ first, while the communities begun by Paul are way more hellenistic and pagan, and don’t expect circumcision or basic adherence to the Torah.

====

FACT 4: The ‘Paulian’ version of xtianity is the one that gets adopted by Emperor Constantine, and the Roman Empire in the 4th century.

And from that point on, the ‘Jewish Christian’ version of xtianity, which is basically some version of ‘Modern Orthodox Judaism’, together with the belief that Yoshki was the moshiach, and will ‘rise again’ to finish the job, starts to be persecuted as ‘schismatic’ by the early Catholic church and increasingly goes underground.

====

FACT 5: The ‘Jewish Christian’ version of xtianity never disappears.

It’s practitioners are externally Jews, sometimes even pious, ascetic Jews – who happen to believe that Yoshki is the moshiach, and will come back again to finish the job.

They don’t believe Yoshki is ‘divine’, and they know that Yoshki had a large, extended family – many of whom actually continue to perpetuate this version of ‘Jewish xtianity’ down the centuries.

They hate ‘orthodox christianity’ for twisting the teachings of Yoshki, and persecuting them.

And they are probably still on a mission to ‘convert’ the rest of the Jews into believing in their false messiah.

====

So, to recap.

By the 4th century, you are looking at three main groups of ‘Jewish xtians’:

  • The ‘Desposyni’, or Yoshki ‘royal family‘, who go underground, because their very existence is an embarrassment to the Catholic Church’s teachings about Yoshki being divine, celibate and having no blood relatives.
  • The Jewish Christians who disagreed with Paul, and believe that Yoshki is moshiach, but not ‘divine’, and who basically keep most of the Torah’s commandments (this group is known as ‘EBIONITES’).
  • The gentile Church – ‘planted’ by Paul, who have no Torah, no circumcision, and believe Yoshki is divine and came into the world via a ‘virgin birth’.

====

FACT 6: The ‘Ebionites’ continue to evolve, and develop a way of life that favors communism and vegetarianism.

I.e. – ‘you’ll own nothing, and you’ll be happy’.

Does this sound familiar?

The Ebionites, like Yoshki and ‘Bishop James’ before them, don’t believe that everything that is written in the Torah comes from God.

So, they ‘cut out’ the stuff they don’t like, but whatever they agree with, they make it an imperative to do.

(Again, does this sound familiar?)

So, ‘Jewish law’ is still in force, but the Ebionites make themselves the arbiters of which parts of the Torah should be followed, and also replace animal sacrifice with ‘baptism’ instead, and regular immersions in water.

====

Fact 7: The Talmud has a lot of references to these ‘Jewish Christian’ minim – but that information has been deliberately censored.

I will cover this aspect in more detail, in the next post, but for now it’s enough to know that these ‘Jewish Christian’ minim were still very much part of the standard Jewish community, and interacting with authentic Jews day in, day out.

EVEN THOUGH THEY WERE XTIANS.

In particular, these ‘Jewish xtians’ were associated with healing – albeit via avoda zara – so many people were still going to them from the Jewish community, and this is how they would ‘missionise’ more people to join their movement.

This is important to note, as there are many ‘medical doctors’ in the families of those who are known Sabbatean-Frankists, including ‘Jewish’ physicians to Kings and Queens.

So, remember that ‘Jewish Christians’ were always linked to ‘healing’, going forward.

====

Fact 8: These Ebionites preach ‘universalism’.

‘Interfaith’ is totally a Jewish Christian idea.

====

Fact 9: Around the 4th century, the Ebionites schism, and a new branch with gnostic tendencies called the ‘Elkcesaites’ is formed.

Why is this so important to understand?

Because ‘gnosticism’ basically teaches that there is a ‘good God’, and a ‘bad God’.

And that the ‘bad God’ is the one who made this lowly, physical world that is full of pain and suffering.

And that the ‘good God’ is only to be found in the spiritual realm, and that ‘enlightenment’ is when people leave their physical bodies, and return to being totally spiritual beings.

==

What I just wrote above explains everything that is going on right now.

Because we Jews know that Ein Od Milvado – there is only God, and God is doing everything, and God created everything, and God is only good.

But these guys are teaching that God is ‘evil’, chas v’shalom.

So, they are worshipping the ‘opposite’ of God….

And they also believe that it’s the biggest mitzva in the world to ‘release’ humanity from the suffering it endures while incarnated in a human body.

And that’s why, they really believe their plans for ‘mass murder’ are a kindness to humanity, and to the world.

====

We’ll come back to this in another post, but I want you to understand very clearly, that everything that is being blamed on ‘the Jews’ is actually rooted, very deeply, in xtianity itself, with it’s teachings that the ‘God of the Old Testament’ is bad.

====

Fact 10: Ebionite philosophy underpins the Koran, and Islam.

There were a lot of Ebionite communities in Arabia, and it’s certain that Mohammed interacted with them, and got a lot of his philosophy from them – i.e. that Yoshki was a ‘prophet’ preaching enlightenment, and that he, Mohammed, was the next prophet in that line of prophets, with the Koran.

(Separately, it’s known that Mohammed was illiterate, and that the Koran was written by Jews. More on that another time.)

====

I’m going to stop here, even though I have a lot more to share.

Bottom line, for this post, is that the ‘Jewish Christians’ who remained Jews never left the broader Jewish community.

They still wanted to identify as ‘Jews’, culturally.

They still believed in basic stuff like circumcision, and were proud of their Jewishness.

But at the same time, they believed that Yoshki was the moshiach, and wanted to ‘recreate’ Judaism by picking and choosing the bits of the Torah that appealed to them, and ditching the rest.

And some of them were very strict, and very ascetic in their practices, especially in relation to ‘penances’ and fasting.

(Just take a look at some of the stuff that Opus Dei practices, you’ll get the idea…)

====

In the next post, we will continue to trace what happened to this ‘Ebionite Jewish-Christian’ influence – who were neither ‘orthodox xtians’ nor orthodox Jews, and who actually hated both – to see if we can figure out a little more about what is going on today in our Jewish community, and how it connects up to ‘Christian Zionists’ and Sabbatean-Frankist-Freemasons.

Stay tuned.

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.

Well, it’s never dull.

Yesterday, I got an email from a lady in Israel called Alix Aharon, who runs The Gender Mapping Project site, asking me if I knew that the book ‘I am Jazz‘ had been translated into Hebrew.

What’s ‘I am Jazz?’

I wondered to myself. I sent a few more emails to Alix, and within half an hour, I had the answer to that particular question – but about four million others to ask.

====

First, I have to admit to really not knowing a lot about all the reality TV shows of sadly dysfunctional and mentally-ill people that today passes for ‘entertainment’.

Maybe in a kinder past, parents and communities would huddle around to give these suffering souls in our midst some real love, concern and attention, instead of encouraging them to ‘bare their souls’ for the voyeuristic public.

But today, the whole world seems to have turned into Barnum’s ‘Greatest Show in Earth’.

Except today, ‘The Bearded Lady’ would be diagnosed as ‘trans’ and encouraged to get started on Puberty Blockers and scheduled for a radical mastectomy….

But while some things have changed,  the motive is still exactly the same:

“According to his critics, [Barnum’s] personal aim was “to put money in his own coffers.” He is widely credited with coining the adage “There’s a sucker born every minute“.

====

Anyway, let’s get back to ‘I am Jazz’ in Hebrew – and why that’s such a problem.

Here’s a screenshot of the book’s description, on Steimatzky HERE:

====

English translation:

Ever since she was a child, Jazz knew she had a girl’s brain in a boy’s body.

She loved the pink colour and dressing up as the Little Mermaid, and didn’t feel like herself in boy clothes. I Am Jazz tells the story of a trans girl in a simple and clear way that everyone will love – children, parents and teachers – and is based on the life of Jazz Jennings, who has become a spokesperson for trans and trans children all over the world.

====

Somewhere in the back of my mind, I remembered someone telling me about ‘Jazz Jennings’.

He’s a boy, whose pushy, crazy mother decided was ‘trans’ while he was still in diapers, and that this poor ‘trans’ kid Jazz Jennings should be the star of his own TV show, as he ‘transitioned’ from boy to girl….

My friend told me that by the end of the second series, it was already clear that the ‘happy ever after’ ending was NEVER going to happen for Jazz Jennings, because all the experimental surgery and radical hormone therapy and other drugs he was on (like permanently, for the rest of his life…) had left him with a number of really serious physical health issues, and also tons of mental and emotional health problems including serious depression.

My friend told me she felt so sorry for this kid, whose crazy mother had pushed him to become a reality TV ‘spokesperson for trans and trans children all over the world.’

====

I do a quick search for ‘Jazz Jennings’ to see whatever happened to that poor, child-abused boy, whose parents ‘decided’ he was trans when he was just two years old, and I get to this, from the GatewayPundit site HERE:

The parents of Jazz Jennings, a man who was ushered into the national spotlight as a transgender activist at the age of 7, “fat-shame” and chastise their self-proclaimed mentally ill son in the upcoming season of “I am Jazz.”

In a trailer promoting the 7th season of the reality series, Jennings reveals he has gained over 100 pounds amid his ongoing struggle with mental health and being mocked and ridiculed by his family.

There is no happy ending for these ‘trans’ children, no matter all the propaganda they are constantly churning out aimed at our children – and now in Hebrew!!!

==== 

Some old-time children’s entertainer ‘Doda Tzipi’ – who I’ve never heard of, honestly, but who is apparently very popular in Israel – just posted up a video to her Facebook page of her reading ‘I am Jazz’ to her little grandchild, and cooing over how wonderful the book is.

Really?

Are there really sane people out there, who can’t wait for their children and grandchildren to ‘switch gender’ so they too can go through the sort of hellish existence being experienced by ‘Jazz Jennings’, who effectively got ‘sterilised’ by their ‘trans-gender’ surgery and drugs, is clinically depressed – and now also obese, on top of everything else?

Really?

The mind boggles.

====

If this post stopped here, that would be bad enough.

But if you can believe it, I think it gets even worse.

Let me introduce you to ‘Shuli Elisheva’, a man who apparently believes he’s a modern-orthodox woman, who is writing barely-disguised trans porn explaining his ‘journey’ for a site that is pretending to be for orthodox Jewish women, called ‘Unorthoboxed’.

Here he is:

====

Ladies, think of Shuli as a diet-aid – one glance, and he totally puts you off your breakfast!

So anyway, I got to this guy via THIS article on the GenderMapping website, snippet below:

Since 2019, a man named Samuel “Sam” Zerin (aka Samatha Zerin, aka Shuli Elisheva) has”identified as a woman.” More recently, he has also decided he is specifically an Orthodox woman. This is even though he does not practice Orthodox Judaism and is a man and can’t change his biological sex no matter what Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity (SOGI) activists say….

Yet, with the support of LGBTQI+ activists, advocacy organizations, and a platform provided by an online publication supposedly by and for Orthodox women called “Unorthoboxed,” Shuli has launched a campaign to push himself into Orthodox Jewish women’s spaces.

====

(Warning: this article contains screenshots of a lot of Zerin’s frankly pornographic musings, so I would advise to skip it. That’s just one of the problems with this topic, and with these people – they m’teimah everything and everyone they come into contact with.)

====

It just gets worse and worse.

I google ‘Samuel Zerin’, and I immediately get to about 4,000 articles in all the usual Jewish propaganda machines, like the JTA, the Jpost, and all the rest of them.

Guess what I learned (from HERE)?

‘Samuel ‘Shuli Elisheva’ Zerin’ is (or at least, was….) married, and has a child.

He’s married to Rachel Zerin, who is:

[T]he associate rabbi at Temple Emanu-El, a Conservative congregation in Providence, Rhode Island.

Samantha Zerin had looked into whether there were any other spouses of congregational rabbis who transitioned whom she could contact for support. She wasn’t able to find any.

Well, duh!

====

Go read the full story on the JPOST – especially if you’re trying to lose some of that post-Pesach weight – because I want you to understand 100%, that ‘Shuli Elisheva’ is NOT, and never will be, a ‘modern orthodox woman’.

Here he is, reading a children’s story in Yiddish from 2014, with a full, bushy beard:

====

So, what is he doing as a columnist on ‘Unorthoboxed’?

(Apart from the obvious, i.e. acting as yet another Frankist-funded Trojan Horse, to try and ‘push’ all their mentally-ill, anti-Torah agendas into our mainstream Jewish communities, under the guise of more ‘equality’?)

====

I asked Alix Aharon if she knew who was funding ‘Unorthoboxed’, that says this about itself, on its Home Page:

Because, you know, you can just ‘self-define’ yourself as anything these days….

‘Unorthoboxed’s editor is one ‘Penina Taylor’ – a secular American Jew who became an evangelical xtian at age 16, and even joined the Billy Graham Project as a missionary, before moving to Baltimore to try to ‘infiltrate’ the local Jewish community there.

According to Penina’s own story – watch below, or read it HERE – the local Chabad rabbi of Park Heights, Baltimore, R’ Elchonon Lisbon, encouraged her and her four children to keep coming to his shul, even when he knew she and her husband were active missionaries.

Snippet from the Chabad.org site HERE:

In 2000, they purchased a home in Baltimore’s Orthodox neighborhood with the hope they would evangelize Jews. But when she started talking to people about Christianity, they were not responsive. One Shabbat a Lubavitch rabbi came over to their home and insisted that though her beliefs were not Jewish, she and her children were. He urged them to continue attending his synagogue.

====

Let’s park that part of the story, at least for now, and come back to how Penina Taylor can claim to be editing an orthodox magazine for ‘modern orthodox women’ while still pushing anti-Torah, pornographic ‘trans’ propaganda written by a man who is married to a female ‘rabbi’.

With permission, let me quote something from an email Alix sent me:

The story about Shuli is important.

There are many men online who wear sheitels and stockings and pretend to be women, but being involved in an online magazine for Jewish women is particularly offensive.

Especially when I warned Penina in writing several times that Shuli’s delusions about his body come from a pornographic fantasy and a sexual dysfunction. Every Jewish woman who is forced to read Shuli’s online pornographic fantasies in a Jewish womens magazine have, in my opinion, been the victim of a sexual crime.

We are living in a world where Penina’s actions go unquestioned, but me, the women’s rights activist in the Jewish community, is called a hateful bigot by other orthodox women!…

==

I’ve spoken to many people about Penina.

Rav Menken of the Coalition of Jewish Values was blown away by my reporting of her, as she is someone who is pretty respected.

For context, I contacted her asking to meet with me online so I could explain to her why this man is dangerous- instead of listening to my concerns, she ran away from my questions.

====

If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you’ll already know that I put a lot of effort into trying to figure out who is funding all this stuff – as that usually tells you 99% of what you need to know, about where it’s really coming from.

So, I headed over to the ‘Unorthoboxed’ Twitter feed, to see if I could get some more clues there.

That’s where I trip over Unorthoboxed ‘Ask the Rabba’ section:

====

It’s bigging up a ‘female orthodox rabba’ – whatever that’s meant to mean – called Melissa Scholten-Gutierrez.

Within 3 seconds of googling her name, I get to this, from HERE:

Snippet:

This weekend I participated in the National Council of Jewish Women’s Repro Shabbat initiative, advocating for the protection of all people of faith to practice their religions freely.

Any law that limits a person’s ability to access abortion or reproductive health services limits their ability to practice their faith, and thus violates the First Amendment’s protections of separation of church and state.

As a Jewish leader, I have a platform to show that religious communities can be loving and welcoming to anyone who has, or may ever, terminate a pregnancy.

====

Sigh.

This Scholten-Gutierrez apparently got her smicha as ‘an orthodox rabbi’ from a place called YESHIVAT MAHARAT.

Screenshot:

====

Avi Weiss is the founder of the so-called ‘Open Orthodoxy’ movement, which you can read more about – as a diet aid! – HERE.

And even without looking at the donors, I already know that ‘YESHIVAT MAHARAT is another ‘pretend orthodox Trojan Horse’ in our Jewish community, funded by the usual Frankist-Freemasons.

But here, let me prove that:

====

Notice all the ‘Jewish Womens’ Foundation’ funders?

This screenshot comes from the NYC branch – who can’t even write ‘HISTORY’ anymore:

====

Notice that ‘Bela K Lindenbaum’?

This snippet comes from her Wikipedia page:

Lindenbaum, her husband Marcel, and Shlomo Riskin co-founded Midreshet Lindenbaum, a post high school institute in Israel for students which combines service in the Israeli Defense Forces with religious studies.

She served as a founding board member of Yeshivat Maharat, on the Board of Directors of Yeshivat Chovevei Torah, a board member of Yeshiva University, President of the American Friends of Bar-Ilan University, a board member of Ramaz Day School, a past president of the Drisha Institute of Jewish Education, and a President and Vice President of the Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance.

====

Remember how Shlomo Riskin was also pushing that ‘orthodox female rabbi’ Mirvis in Efrat, too?

Always the same people, always the same modus operandi.

From past experience, I can tell you that ‘ortho fems’ are nearly always being funded – lavishly – by Frankist-Freemasons with a not-so-hidden agenda to ‘shatter orthodoxy’.

Here’s another screenshot of more YESHIVAT MAHARAT funders:

====

Hey, it’s our good friends (connected to child trafficker and woman abuser Jeffrey Epstein…) The Wexner Foundation!

You hopefully get the point.

====

So, what do we do about all this?

The first thing is just to follow the principle of KNOW THINE ENEMY.

Anything ‘ortho-fem’, anything ‘open orthodox’, anything pushing the trans agenda in any way, shape or form – these things are being funded by people who are dedicated to and obsessed with uprooting the Torah, and Torah-based morality.

====

The second thing is to start to PUSH BACK.

You can write to Penina Taylor HERE.

Please ask her who is funding her publication; why she has a trans man who is not an orthodox Jew – at all – writing porn for her readers; and why she’s pushing ‘ortho-feminist rabbas’ who just lurve abortions on her readers, all while pretending to be a publication for ‘orthodox women’.

Also, as parents, as believing Jews, we have to start standing up for what is right, and stop being steamrollered by narcissist snowflakes with radical agendas to turn our children against themselves – and against God.

And against us, their parents.

I am totally not politically correct, and when people start trying to spout their ‘PC’ rubbish, I challenge it hard and fast.

Because I know what’s really at stake.

====

The third thing is to pay a visit to that Gender Mapping Project site, HERE, and start to get more educated about what is going on with this ‘trans’ agenda in the Jewish community.

If you have children who are being confused by all the propaganda – or know someone who is in that position – this site was created to try to support parents, to stand up and defend the rights of their children to grow up sound in body and mind, without being ‘brainwashed’ by an industry bent on making a lot of money out of teenagers’ natural confusions and issues.

People like Alix are working very hard to bring more parents together, to stop this ‘trans propaganda’ in the Jewish community in its tracks.

With God’s help.

Let me leave Alix with the last word, about why we have to start getting involved with this issue, even though I know so many of us find it so hard to deal with, on so many levels:

We recently spoke to an Israeli father in New York whose daughter committed suicide after taking hormones and removing her breasts.

====

That poor man.

His poor daughter.

Enough is enough.

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.

Almost exactly a year ago, I wrote a post for my old blog called ‘Christian Jews’.

For new readers who don’t know what happened to that old blog, I decided to take the whole thing down a few months ago, shortly after I found the smoking gun that clearly showed how the State of Israel used Directed Energy Weapons to cause the deaths of 45 people at Meron last L’Ag B’Omer, directly and indirectly.

Long story short, I was literally scared they were going to come after me, if I kept the blog up, so I decided to take the whole thing down and start over.

You can read more about that decision HERE.

Point is, I had a huge amount of research on that blog, which I saved offline, and which I’m still trying to figure out how to ‘mine’ and put together as books…. At some point.

And one of those blog posts was about the ancestor of the SHACH, called Akiva of Salonica.

====

First, I’m just going to cut and paste what I wrote back then, in italics below, (you can see the original cached copy HERE), on May 7, 2021, and then I’ll update it with more pertinent information, as things have moved on quite a bit since then.

====

I’ve been busy putting together a real family tree for the more ‘interesting’ Jewish families, where there’s been an obvious cover-up of the real details and information.

In the process of doing that, I kept tripping over weird names, and weird snippets of information, that hinted that certain members of these families had formally converted to xtianity. And I was amazed at just how many of these weird names I kept tripping over, despite all the cover up that’s gone on.

Let me give a few concrete examples:

====

Exhibit 1: Paulus Renatus (aka Lob Oppenheim)

 

Here’s a snippet about him, from HERE:

Lob Oppenheim – Paulus Renatus The first Frankfurt Jew about whose conversion and its accompanying circumstances more detailed information is available was Lob Oppenheim, who informed the city council of his intention in August 1537 and at the same time complained that his wife Edel (also: nobility) refuse to convert with him.

====

Notice that this was happening a good 100 years before Shabtai Tzvi, and a good 50 years AFTER Jews from Spain and Portugal had been forced to go into exile, or convert under Ferdinand and Isabella.

Now, if you go HERE – the German Wikipedia article for the Oppenheim family – you’ll see that (despite a clumsy attempted cover up…), we can identify the xtian ‘Paulus Renatus’ as one and the same as the Jewish Judah Loeb Oppenheim of Frankfurt – married to Edel.

====

It says that – at least initially – Edel, his wife, refused to convert with him.

But if you continue reading down that list of ‘Oppenheims’ in Frankfurt who directly descended from ‘Paulus Renatus’, you quickly see that there are way more relatives listed as ‘Christian Jews’ in this family, including:

The grandson of Paulus Renatus, was also called Juda Löb (Löw) Oppenheim. His wife’s mother’s uncle (‘Amschel von Schleusingen’) was another xtian convert called Hans Cunrath.

According to the below, xtian ‘Amschel von Schleusingen’ had a double identity, and was known as ‘Akiva Frankfurter Guggenheim‘ within the Jewish community.

[Ed. note: His two wives were both ‘Gunzburgs‘, and I also just learned that Akiva Frankfurter Guggenheim’s ancestor was ALSO R’ Akiva HaKohen Katz of Uban – who the SHACH also descends from. Read on below. It’s also possible that ‘Amschel von Schleusingen is actually Akiva frankfurter’s brother, not his alter ego.]

====

One of (secret xtian) ‘Akiva Frankfurter Guggenheim’s’ daughters, called Rechle Wetzlar, was the mother of Ella Rothschild – the progenitor of the famous Rothschild clan.

That’s not a coincidence.

====

 

Going back to that Wikipedia entry for the Oppenheim family, we next learn this:

Judah Lob Oppenheim #2, the grandson of Paulus Renatus, had another brother called Meyer Oppenheim (1580-1640).

Guess what?

Meyer also converted out to xtianity, as did his children.

But his wife Breindlen refused to be baptised, and so began a long, protracted divorce that lasted for many years, and caused an enormous chillul Hashem in both the Jewish Frankfurt community, and also amongst the xtians.

Here‘s a snippet of what was going on then:

Meir Oppenheim converted on December 21, 1606 to Christianity and took the name John Daniel Lichtenstein in. His wife Brendle (Brendlin) did not convert, but their children were baptized.

She demanded a divorce from him , he refused this and the disputes lasted until after 1620… because Lichtenstein demanded a share of 13,500 guilders for himself from the joint property with his wife, it was a sum of 18,000 guilders… [I]n November 1610 he sued his “former Jewish housewife” and her relatives as well…. 

Meir Oppenheimer / Johann Daniel Lichtenstein fell away from the Christian faith after being baptized, became Jewish again and fled to Poland. His brothers Mosche “Zum Schwert” and Juda Löb “Zum White Löwen” were assumed to have been the escape helpers. They fled from the threat of torture to force a confession and turned to the Supreme Court , whereupon the council issued a judgment that forced Moshe to pay 9,000 guilders and Löb 3,000 guilders.

After this judgment, Meir was baptized again in 1626.

====

You see what I mean?

These guys just flipped in and out of xtianity or Judaism as it suited them – and then carried on being the leaders and ‘rabbis’ of the Jewish community.

For example, here’s what happened to Meir’s son:

Hieronimus Lichtenstein became a rabbi after his father fell away from Christianity, professed again Christian baptism and became a Protestant pastor…. baptized in 1626. 

You can read more about Meir’s descendants, the openly xtian ‘Liechensteins’, HERE.

There are a LOT more links with the Oppenheim family to explore, but we’ll leave that here for now, as I still have a couple more ‘Christian-Jews’ to introduce you too.

====

Exhibit 2: John Ernuszt I

Now, I’m sure you’ve never heard of ‘John Ernuszt‘. So let me introduce you, a little:

John Ernuszt, Sr. was Ban of Slavonia from 1473 to 1476. He was born into a Jewish family in Vienna. He moved to Buda, the capital of the Kingdom of Hungary, and converted to Roman Catholicism. He became a purveyor to the royal court, which enabled him to meet Matthias Corvinus, King of Hungary.

His career in the administration of royal revenues began in 1461, with responsibility for the collection of the thirtieth (a custom duty) in Pozsony County….

Ernuszt inspired Matthias’s reform of the royal revenues (especially the centralization of their administration and the abolishment of tax exemptions) in 1467. In the same year, the king made him royal treasurer. Six years later, he was appointed ban of Slavonia and became one of the barons of the realm. 

====

John Ernuszt Sr has two sons with his wife Catherine (the records don’t know if she was Jewish or not).

One, Sigismund Ernuszt, is made the Bishop of Pecs in 1473, while the second one, John Ernuszt Jnr, follows his dad into dealing with the royal finances.

Here’s a little about what happens next (from Wikipedia):

The Ernuszt brothers who held more than 3,500 peasant households were among the wealthiest landowners in Hungary in 1494…. In 1495, he received the estate of Munkács (MukacheveUkraine) from the King….

His brother, Bishop Sigismund was murdered in summer 1505. His three retainers (John Gyulai, Louis Szerecsen and Albert Cupi) strangled him to seize his wealth.[12] Sigismund’s legal heir was his younger brother, John… John Ernuszt brought charges against the assassins in spring 1506, also accusing them of misappropriation of the Ernuszt property. However they were never sentenced….

In 1514, John initiated a second lawsuit against the three retainers… John’s lawyers accused the suspects of murder, the falsification of Sigismund’s last will and embezzlement of 1,3 million gold florins….

Following John’s death, his only living son Caspar initiated a new trial in 1536, however he died in 1540 and the House of Ernuszt became extinct, making the lawsuit is obsolete.

====

I discovered ‘John Ernuszt’ in a weird way.

As you know, I’m going through the family trees of a few ‘interesting’ families, and I’d got up to trying to figure out who the ancestors of the SHACH were, Shabbatai ben Meir HaKohen Katz Ashkenazi.

(That’s a whole other story… and I’m not sure I’m ever going to be able to really tell it. But I digress.)

====

So, I get to this geni profile of ‘R Akiva HaKohen Katz’ of Budin‘ (1460-1496), and here’s a little of what I read:

“There was a man here in Prague that was great in Torah, wealth and Yichus that came to Prague from those that were exiled from the holy congregation of Uban (Budapest) because of a libel that was fabricated there.

This man was called Rabbi Akiva from Uban. [Son of Rabbi Yitzchok HaKohen son of Rabbi Akiva Kakohen the elder, Av Bais Din of Saloniki (Greece) who were both exiles from Spain, all descendants of The Kohen Gadol Elie.]

Rabbi Akiva was called to the Yeshiva above (died) in the year 5256 (1496). He was known as an expert in Royal Court customs and because of jealousy, the nobles of Hungary in Uban fabricated a libel. He came here (Prague) and built a great, respected house and spread tora in the generation of Rabbi Yaakov POLLACK who was the Av Bais Din here at that time. [Listed as an advisor of King Mathais of Hungary by Encyclopedia Judaica.]…

One of his sons was Rabbi Gershon father of Rabbi Shimshon HaCohen, father of Rabbi Yitzhak HaCohen-Katz, son-in-law of the great Maharal of Prague.

====

There’s a few things that strike me as odd about this, initially.

First, ‘R’ Akiva HaKohen Katz’ has an alter ego, where’s he’s apparently also known as ‘Furst von Open’.

Whenever you see ‘von’, that means the person was ennobled. But hard as I look, I can’t find any record anywhere of a Jewish advisor to the Hungarian king who was ennobled at this time…. except, for John Ernuszt I, the converted Jew.

Akiva comes from ‘Budin’, and John lives in ‘Buda’ – the same place.

Akiva is apparently at the Hungarian court between 1460-1496, and John is apparently at the Hungarian court at exactly the same time.

How is that for a CO-INC-ID-ENCE?

====

Akiva HaKohen Katz then moves from Hungary to Prague…. at exactly the same time that ‘John Ernuszt’ apparently dies, after becoming embroiled in a massive dispute, or ‘libel’ with the Hungarian nobles.

If you go HERE, you start to figure out a little more about why the nobles start revolting against ‘John Ernuszt’:

[Hungarian King Matthias] entrusted the administration of the Crown’s customs to John Ernuszt, a converted Jewish merchant. Within two years, Ernuszt was responsible for the collection of all ordinary and extraordinary taxes, and the management of the salt mines.

Matthias’s tax reform caused a revolt in Transylvania.

So, I have to ask:

What are the chances that there would be two Jews, one ‘converted’ and one not, working for the same Hungarian king, at exactly the same time, both involved in ‘libels’ with the Hungarian nobels, and both ‘ennobled’ at a time when very few commoners – never mind Jews – were being ennobled?

And not only that – there are no records of ‘Furst von Open’ – the apparent alter ego of R’ Akiva HaKohen Katz.

====

I’m a big believe in Occam’s Razor.

The simplest explanation is usually the correct one.

And the simplest explanation here is that ‘R’ Akiva HaKohen of Budin’ is one and the same as ‘John Ernuszt of Buda’, the converted Jew whose son became a Hungarian Bishop, and who married a bunch of apparently non-Jewish women.

====

Ad kan, from last year.

Since then, there’s been a lot of additional information flowing down the pipe of ‘Real Jewish History’, not least, the recent revelations about the Khazar royal family being i) probably Karaite converts and / or partially descended from Sadduccee-Karaites (i.e. ‘Kohanim’ and ii) deciding to unilaterally start identifying themselves as ‘HaKohen Al-Khazaris’.

====

Ever since I saw that, I’ve had more of an eye open, for where these fake Khazari ‘HaKohens’ might have ended up, in the Jewish communities of the middle ages.

But let’s get back to focussing on ‘Akiva HaKohen Katz of Budin’, ancestor of the SHACH, and also ancestor of a bunch of two-faced ‘Christian Jews’ including people like Amschel von Schleusingen / Akiva Frankfurter Guggenheim.

And very possibly, one and the same as the ennobled, baptised, John Ernuszt, corrupt Hungarian tax collector extraordinaire.

====

Since I wrote this article, I have tripped across a few other ‘Christian-Jewish’ families – all court Jews, who held very high positions in the non-Jewish world.

They were also were usually the ‘Chief Rabbis’ of the Jewish communities, too, so they could enforce the ‘Jew Tax’, and other dictates, that the non-Jewish rulers meted out to the Jewish communities, by fair means or foul.

The OPPENHEIM / OPPENHEIMERS (mentioned above) fit this mold exactly, and it’s on my list to do a detailed post about them, very soon.

And there is another family, too, the FISZELS, that fits this mold too, and also has branches of the family tree converting out to xtianity and getting ennobled – while their siblings become the ancestors of people like the (Sabbatean-Frankist) SHORS, the (alter-ego of Shabtai Tzvi) SHACH, the (Sabbatian prophets and believers including) Mordechai ‘Mokiah’ Eisenstadt and his brother, Meir Panim Eisenstadt – and many other ‘Sabbatian -Frankists’, too, that I’m still in the process of figuring out.

====

Let’s end this post with a closer look at the FISZELS, and how they also tie-up with the SHACH – because as I keep telling you, these people just marry each other over and over again, down the generations.

The following details come from the YIVO article on the Fiszel family HERE, which I highly recommend you read, as I’m just doing this bare bones to keep ‘information overload’ at a minimum.

Snippet:

The most influential family in Kraków’s Jewish community from the 1470s to the mid-sixteenth century.

Members of the Fiszel family served as creditors to King Casimir the Jagiellonian and his sons Jan Olbracht, Aleksander, and Sigismund I.

====

Moshe Fiszel and his wife Rachel Moyseszowa , from Prague, are in charge of the Polish Kings’ mint, and also lend them a lot of money, as their official, tax collecting ‘court Jews’.

They have six kids. One of them, (Moshe) ‘Stefan Fiszel Powidzki H. Korab converts to xtianity, snippet from YIVO:

Mosheh (Stefan) Fiszel served as a creditor to kings Jan Olbracht and Aleksander even before his conversion to Christianity.

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

He served as collector of Jewish taxes in Great Poland (1499, 1503) and as director of the salt storehouse in Poznań (1504). In 1499, when the Jews of Gniezno accused him of excessive tax collection, he received the support of the archbishop of Gniezno, Cardinal Fryderyk Jagiellończyk.

After converting to Catholicism (between 1503 and 1504); Stefan was ennobled by Zygmunt the Old, receiving the Korab coat of arms.

His sons Jan and Stanisław also converted to Catholicism; their godmother was Elizabeth, the widow of King Casimir the Jagiellonian. Stefan divorced his wife, who chose to remain Jewish.

====

One of Stefan Powidzki’s brother is Efraim Fisczel, also known by the xtian name ‘Franczek’. Snippet from YIVO:

Efrayim (Franczek) Fiszel, Stefan’s brother, was appointed in 1512 to the position of general collector of Jewish taxes in Little Poland…

In 1524, Sigismund I (the Old), at [Queen] Bona’s request, named Franczek and his wife Chwałka (Falka) royal servitors, thus removing Franczek from the jurisdiction of any other court but that of the king or, in smaller matters, of the queen. Both were freed from the payment of Jewish taxes.

====

This ‘Ephraim Fishel’ is one of the most mysteriously ‘disappeared’ ancestors on geni, but his family tree leads to some of the most well known rabbis in the Ashkenazi world, including:

  • The ABD of Krakow, R’ Aryeh Leib Fischeles Kalusziner
  • The ABD of Breslau, R’ Isaac Joshua Heshel Teomim
  • R’ Zecharia Mendel, author of ‘Be’er Heitev’
  • The Chacham Tzvi (via the Sha’ar Ephraim)

And many, many, MANY others, including most of the ‘interesting’ families I’ve been researching for two years.

You can read more about him HERE, which links to ‘Hebrew books’, snippet below:

====

But the links back to this original ‘Ephraim Fishel’, and his ongoing connections to Polish royalty are all deliberately broken.

For example, the YIVO website tells us this about his son, Moshe Fishel:

Mosheh Fiszel (1480–1541), Franczek’s son, was a physician; he married Ester, who served in the court of Queen Bona.

In 1532, after the death of the kabbalist and rabbi Asher Lemel, he became rabbi of the so-called “Polish” Jewish community of Kazimierz.

In 1541 he was appointed, together with the rabbi of Lublin, Shalom Shakhnah, to be the chief rabbi of Little Poland and Rus’, a post that included the right to excommunicate and judge Jews for religious transgressions.

Soon after his appointment, he was accused of converting Christians to Judaism. He was tortured and died soon after his release from prison.

====

Personally, I’m not sure that last bit happened.

It’s just way too convenient how all these interesting ‘missing links’ just kind of die a hero’s death, with no clues about who their descendants continue to be in the Jewish community.

So I went looking in Polish, to see if I could get the real story of what happened to Moshe Fishel. This comes from Polish Wikipedia, HERE:

In 1532, Moses Fishel took over as rabbi of the so-called Polish Jewish community, replacing his late uncle Asher Lemel. 

In 1541, he became General rabbi of Malopolsk and Russia, a position he shared with Rabbi Shalom Shahn of Lublin. With the confidence of the King, they were given the power to sue for religious offenses. 

In the same year, Moses Fishel was accused of complicity in a ritual murder, in connection with which he was burned at the stake.[6].

====

Well.

That explains a lot, doesn’t it?

This screenshot comes from HERE – note the dates:

====

So, the ‘Ester’ who served in the Polish Queen Bona’s court, who marries ‘Moses Fishel’, nephew of the xtian ‘Stefan Powditsky’ – who is burned at the stake after being accused of performing a ritual murder –  turns out to be the daughter of the legendary ‘Eliyahu Baal Shem of Chelm’.

You know, this guy:

 

Snippet from HERE:

“Hasidic tradition records Eliyahu Baal Shem in the 16th century, founding a “Nistarim” mystical brotherhood to offer physical and spiritual encouragement to the Jewish populace, from which Hasidism later emerged.”

(Lubavitcher Rabbi’s Memoires, Joseph Isaac Schneersohn, Kehot publications, 3 volumes)

Snippet continues:

“Not many people with this title have been recorded (outside of the Baal Shem Tov, the Baal Shem of Michelstadt was one example) and none have it today.

The first recorded person to receive the title was Eliyahu of Chelm.

Other Baalei Shem include Rabbi Eliyahu of Worms (the founder of the movement variously known as “Macheneh Yisrael”, the “Nistarim”, and the “Holy Brotherhood”), Rabbi Joel of Ropshitz (a student of Rabbi Yoel Sirkis), Rabbi Adam Baal Shem, and Hayyim Samuel Jacob Falk (known as the Baal Shem of London).”

====

Amazing, isn’t it, how all this just keeps coming together.

We know ‘Hayyim Samuel Jacob Falk’ well.

He’s the demon-commanding, black-magic practising, Order of the Golden Dawn-founding father-in-law of false messiah Jacob Frank.

And now, I’m starting to wonder if his surname ‘Falk’ is a throw back to his ancestors at the Polish court, “Franczek and his wife Chwałka (Falka)”.

(You see what I mean, about every answer just creating 4 million more questions.)

====

And ‘Eliyahu the Baal Shem of Worms’ – aka Eliyahu Loanz – is also related to another famous tax-collecting Court Jew, namely Josel of Rosheim.

(Josel of Rosheim’s family were also accused of performing satanic ritual murders.… All this is starting to hit very close to home, isn’t it?)

Snippet about Eliyahu of Worms from HERE:

German rabbi and cabalist; born at Frankfort-on-the-Main 1555; died at Worms July, 1636. He belonged to the Rashi family, and on his mother’s side was the grandson of Johanan Luria, and on his father’s of Joselmann of Rosheim.

After having studied in his native city under the direction of Jacob Ginzburg and Akiba Frankfort, Loans went to Cracow, where he attended the lectures of Menahem Mendel.

While there he prepared for publication the “Darke Mosheh” of Moses Isserles. At the beginning of the seventeenth century Loans was called to the rabbinate of Fulda, which he left in 1612, occupying sucessively the rabbinates of Hanau, Friedberg (1620), and Worms (1630), in which last-named city he remained until his death.

====

That ‘Akiba Frankfort’ appears to be the same guy we started off with, at the top of this post, viz:

‘Amschel von Schleusingen’ had a double identity, and was known as ‘Akiva Frankfurter Guggenheim‘ within the Jewish community.

His two wives were both ‘Gunzburgs‘, and I also just learned that Akiva Frankfurter Guggenheim’s ancestor was ALSO R’ Akiva HaKohen Katz of Uban – who the SHACH also descends from. It’s also possible that Amschel von Schleusingen is Akiva Frankfurter’s brother, not his alter ego.

====

Before I forget, ‘R Moshe Yehuda Ashkenazi (Fishel’s)’ son, EPHRAIM FISHEL,  marries VALENTINA – the daughter of the MaHaRSHaL, R Shlomo Luria.

(I don’t know if that happened before or after his dad is burned at the stake after being accused of participating in ritual murder, but that kind of explained why he got scrubbed out of history…)

And all of a sudden, we are back deep, deep in the heartland of Ashkenazi ‘rabbinic royalty’.

====

Another of Stefan Powditzki’s siblings, Esther, marries Rabbi Yaakov Pollak (1460-1552).

You can read more about him, in Google translate HERE.

Snippet:

Pollack’s widowed mother-in-law was a rich and famous woman… [i.e. Rachel Moyzeszowa].

She married her second daughter, who was still a minor, a Talmudic scholar David Zener. Regretting this step, she wanted the marriage to be annulled; but the husband refused to allow the divorce, and the mother, on Pollack’s advice, sought the dissolution of the union by filing a refusal ( mi’un ) on the part of the wife, allowed by Talmudic law . 

Menachem of Merseburg a recognized authority, however, decided half a century ago that a formal letter of divorce was necessary in such a case, although his opinion was not supported by Eastern rabbis. So when Pollack declared his daughter-in-law’s marriage invalid, all the rabbis Germany they protested and even excommunicated him… until he obeyed Menachem’s decision.

====

Pollak’s main students are Shalom Shakhna of Lublin – his suspected Karaite brother in law – and Maharam of Padua, grand-dad of ‘King of Poland for a day Saul Wahl ‘.

(See below.)

Yaakov Pollak and Ester Fiszel have at least three children.

One, R’Avraham Pollak, ABD Lubamla and Brisk marries SARAH LURIA – the daughter of the MaHaRSHaL.

We keep coming back to the MaHaRSHaL.

Remember this snippet from the previous post, on the connections between ‘Saul Wahl King of Poland for a day’ and the story told about the SHACH’s daughter, Esther HaTzaddika?

====

Another of their kids has a very convoluted family tree, that eventually leads down to Moshe Kremer, the ABD of Vilna and the ancestor of the Vilna Gaon.

And then another of Esther and Yaakov Pollak’s kids, ‘Chana Yonah’, marries none other than the (suspected Karaite) Chief Rabbi of Lublin,

Shalom Shachne (HaKohen) Kahana (Cohen Tzedek) of Lublin.

His daughter Golda marries R’ Moses Isserles, the REMA.

While his son, R’ Israel Shachna (aka ‘R’ Yisrael Charif of Lublin’) leads down to the extended SHOR clan, many of him were leading lights in the Frankist-Sabbatean family network – and also the ancestors of the Alter Rebbe of Chabad.

And you remember just how enthusiastically the Rebbe Rayatz was bigging-up all these ‘alternative Baal Shems’ (who happened to be conjuring demons…) in his memoirs, of course.

====

So where does the SHACH fit into all this?

Well, maybe like this:

====

1 is the REMA, Moses Isserles.

2 is the SHACH.

====

Or maybe, like this (the more convoluted ‘official’ route):

R’AKIVA HAKOHEN KATZ, UBAN has two brothers, R’ CHAIM HAKOHEN KATZ, and R’ NAFTALI HERZ KATZ.

The REMA’s third wife, mother of most of his kids, SHPRINTZE, descends from R’Chaim.

The SHACH descends from R’ Naftali Herz.

One of the SHACH’s wives (he had two – same as is said of Shabtai Tzvi, before he became the ‘false messiah) was Yenta Leah Wolf Meisels – the g-g-grandaughter of the REMA, like this:

REMA > DREIZEL ISSERLES marries SIMCHA BUNIM MEISELS, ABD CRACOW > LEAH BUNIM MEISELS marries R’ ISAAC WOLF BUNIM MEISELS of VILNA marries SARAH EIDELES> YENTA LEAH WOLF MEISELS marries the SHACH.

Just one, big, happy family!

====

We’ll stop there.

I think I just tripped over the real identity of the ‘Falka’ / Chwalka who marries Ephraim Fishel, brother of xtian Stefan Powdiszki.

And whaddya know?

It’s yet another ‘Christian Jew’ with royal connections.

But I’ll keep that story for a future blog, there’s plenty enough to chew over in this one.

====

Hopefully, you are starting to see that IF the SHACH = Shabtai Tzvi, that didn’t just blossom out of a total vacuum.

The very small ‘core’ of our leaders in the Jewish world for at least the last 5-600 years literally pop in and out of xtianity, enrich themselves by oppressing the poor with taxes and other forms of financial corruption, and have been dabbling in demon-worshipping black magic and possibly also ritual murders…

Doesn’t this start to explain – a lot!!! – about what we are seeing in our world today?

Doesn’t it also start to explain so many of the ‘mysteries of Jewish genealogy’ – which we are really starting to clean up here, in an awesome and disturbing way?

And finally – doesn’t it explain why God has actually been totally justified in His treatment of the Jewish community, over the last 2,000 years +?

====

There is no suffering without sin.

(Which also includes ‘sins’ we did in previous lives, that we are now being reincarnated in order to pay down, even if we’re totally upright and pious in this lifetime.)

And God is truly righteous and merciful in all His ways.

And more and more, it’s looking like we may have actually got off easy, even with all the suffering we’ve endured down the last 2,000 years, when we start to understand just how ‘unholy’ Jewish life may actually have been, up until now.
