Shadow of a man on the ancient walls of Jerusalem

Rebbe Nachman’s works contain so many hints to what is transpiring all around us.

***Important updates below***

This morning in hitbodedut, I suddenly thought about his teaching about the ‘gallach’ and the ‘malach’.

(I will try to find the source on Shabbat, BH, but if anyone out there knows it, feel free to let me know in the comments section.)

Basically, he was talking about the vicissitudes of trying to serve God in this totally confused period of time known as ‘the end of days’.

And he explained how sometimes we act as if we are a malach – an angel; and other times, it all tips over and then we starting acting like a gallach – a priest.

====

Rav Ofer Erez does a fabulous job of bringing that lesson down to our level, and applying it to the issues so many of us have today, where one minute we are trying to be tzaddikim praying with devotion and being super-machmir about about everything – and the next minute we’re smoking a joint, or wasting a whole day gorging on netflix.

(Or worse…)

But this morning, I understood for the first time that Rabbenu was also actually describing the reality of what was going on then, in his time, and what is still going on today, in ours.

One minute, an ‘angel’ – and the next minute a priest.

I didn’t want to overload you with information in that last post.

It’s a lot to take in, I know.

But you should know that what I shared there is literally just the tip of the ‘Christian-Jews’ iceberg.

THIS link will take you to an archived page on the Wayback Machine for something called the ‘Messianicwiki’ site.

Specifically, it will take you to a page called:

“Some Jewish Witnesses for Christ”, by Aaron Bernstein published in 1909

It contains the names of 590 prominent Jews, from prominent families, who became vocal leaders in the xtian community.

====

Some of those people you’ve already met, in the posts in this blog.

But there are so many more, that just got scrubbed out of ‘official Jewish history’ – even though they continued to be in close touch with their relatives in the Jewish community, many of whom were the generation’s ‘leading rabbis’ and communal figures.

Let me give you a couple of examples, so you can see just how bad the problem was / is:

====

Exhibit 1:

Michael Solomon Alexander (1 May 1799 – 23 November 1845) the first Anglican Bishop in Jerusalem.

Here’s a snippet from Wikipedia:

He was the second son and one of five children born to Alexander Wolff. His ancestors may have come to Prussia from England, or may have been in Schönlanke for many generations.

His education in the Talmud began when he was seven years old, and from age sixteen to twenty, he was a teacher in his community of both Talmud and the German language.

He emigrated to England in about 1820, and became a private tutor for a Jewish family in Colchester. Then he became rabbi at Norwich. Here he came into contact with William Marsh, a stalwart of the London Society for Promoting Christianity Amongst the Jews (now known as the Church’s Ministry Among Jewish People or CMJ).

Attempting to flee Christian influences, he accepted the post of teacher and shochet at Plymouth. He taught Hebrew to the Rev. Benjamin Golding of Stonehouse church.

In 1825, he converted to Christianity.

Michael Solomon Alexander

The first Anglican Bishop of Jerusalem, Michael Solomon Alexander

====

Then in 1841, he was proposed as the first Anglican Bishop of Jerusalem, and arrived in the Holy Land in 1842.

As soon as he touched down in Jerusalem, he sparked off a mad race with all the other xtian sects, for them to ‘consolidate their presence in Jerusalem’. Hey, thanks guy!

But that’s not all.

What of his relatives? The people he left behind, and the 9 kids he had with his wife, ‘Deborah Levy’?

====

(I just tripped over a whole bunch of VERY interesting info about that, which BH I’ll do as an update below a little later on.)

====

Here’s a snippet of his write up on that ‘witnesses for Krist’ page:

One of the most interesting incidents in his [missionising] work in Prussia was a visit to his birthplace, and the meeting with his brother, a rabbi to a large congregation near Posen.

We quote the future Bishop’s own words, as shewing his humbleness of mind, and how fully he had left Judaism behind, and entered into the joys of his new faith.

“I cannot describe my feelings on finding myself now in Posen, my native country, when I reflect on the wonderful dealings of the Lord with me since I left this place nine years ago. I was then a wandering sheep from my Saviour’s fold, walking in darkness….[more missionising xtian claptrap….]

“The Lord gave me another gracious token of His mercy at Posen.

I wrote to my brother, who is rabbi to the large Jewish congregation twelve miles from Posen, informing him of my arrival, and requesting that we might have a meeting.

I had very faint hopes of his compliance, as he had been most bitter against me since my baptism. His letter, however, expressed a wish to meet me half way from Posen.

I immediately set off, and had the unspeakable satisfaction of embracing my brother, not as an enemy, even for the Gospel’s sake, but full of brotherly love and affection, and even giving me credit for sincerity.

I stated to him the Gospel, and declared also to him an account of the hope that was in me. He acknowledged that he had not given the subject due consideration, but he promised he would.

He told me what is very important, viz., that it is generally expected among the Jews, that the coming generation will embrace Christianity, and that Judaism is fast dying away.

Time would not allow him to be much with us, and we parted, praying together that the Lord would open his eyes to behold His glory, as it shines in the face of Jesus, and that we may both be united in His love, and become brothers in Christ.”

====

Wouldn’t you just love to know who that rabbinic brother in Posen of ‘Bishop Michael’ was?

I sure would.

But for now, they’ve managed to totally scrub his real identity out of the picture.

(But if you’ve been following this blog, you’ll know that I’ve had a keen interest in quite a few ‘rabbis from Posen’, over the last few months, with strange links to the xtian world.)

====

UPDATE:

I found his brother, it’s Wolff Alexander.

====

(And I found his sister, too: Joanna Pick, who married Jacob Pick.

Those names don’t mean a lot to you, probably, but to me, they are ‘Real Jewish History’ gold.

I’ll explain why in a separate post, BH.)

====

Bishop Michael was a big ‘success’ in Jerusalem.

In the four years he was here, before he died, he managed to convert a whole load of Jews to xtianity.

Thirty-one of them even sent his widow a signed letter of condolence, when Bishop Michael popped his clogs in 1845. And the guy mamash set the ‘Hebrew church’ on a very strong foundation in the Holy Land.

Here’s a description of his first year:

In conformity with instructions received from Constantinople, proclamation was made in the mosques, that “he who touches the Anglican Bishop will be regarded as touching the apple of the Pasha’s eye.”

The presence of the Bishop was soon felt in work amongst the Jews in Jerusalem…

 The Bishop had held his first ordination on March 17, had baptized a Jew on Whitsun Day, and confirmed eight Hebrew Christians; married two converts; finishing up with the ordination of a Hebrew Christian missionary.

The upper room proved all too small, and the building of the London Society’s permanent church, which was to serve the joint purposes of a Cathedral, a chapel for British residence, and a mission centre, was proceeded with…

====

Sigh.

These ‘Christian-Jews’ have been pulling the strings here in the Holyland for two centuries (at least….)

This guy was working for the Prussian and British governments and monarchy; he’s a high-level ‘Christian-Jew’ with rabbinic relatives also interested in yoshki working back in the ‘old country’; he mamash totally changed the face of Jerusalem, converted tens, maybe even hundreds of Jews in the Old City back when there weren’t a lot of Jews in Jerusalem – and we’ve never heard of him.

Why not?

====

While you are pondering that, let me introduce you to one other ‘Christian Jew’ who caught my eye.

Exhibit 2:

Christian David Ginsburg

Here’s his write-up, from HERE:

Rev. Dr. Christian David Ginsburg, born at Warsaw, December 25, 1821, embraced Christianity there in 1846, was missionary of the British Society in Liverpool till 1863, when he retired in order to devote himself entirely to literary work.

Dr. Ginsburg contributed a considerable number of valuable articles on Jewish topics to Kitto’s Encyclopædia, published a book on the Karaites and Essenes, and a full account in English of the Kabbalah, its doctrines, development, and literature.

But he will be especially remembered for his massoretic studies, and translation of Elias Levita’s “Massoreth-ha-Massorah” in 1867, and of Jacob ben Hayim’s “Introduction to the Rabbinic Bible,” published in the same year. He was on the Revision Committee of the Old Testament.

He edited the Massoretic Critical Text of the Hebrew Bible for the Trinitarian Bible Society, 1894, and also Salkinson’s translation of the New Testament into Hebrew, 1886.

====

The Karaites are one of my newest obsessions….

You’ll be hearing more about them soon, BH.

But in the meantime – there are so many scions of ‘big’ Jewish families who became openly xtian – and not just openly xtian in a private way, they became bishops and missionaries and translators of xtian stuff into Hebrew, and went on ‘secret missions’ to get more Jews baptised and following yoshki…

And we know nothing about them.

But at least for me, it’s tarting to explain more about just why there are so many strange ‘gaps’ in the genealogical record, and so much censorship going on around real Jewish history.

And also, why xtians continue to pull the strings here in the Holy Land, from behind the scenes, while our elected officials, leaders and ‘rabbis’ continue to pretend that the State of Israel was a ‘Jewish country’ set up for Jews.

It’s all a lie.

But BH, it’s finally starting to unravel.

====

UPDATE 2:

Well, I went to check out “The Church’s Ministry Among Jewish People (CMJ) (formerly the London Jews’ Society and the London Society for Promoting Christianity Amongst the Jews)”, which sent Bishop Michael over to us, to start converting Jews like crazy in the Holy Land, back in 1842.

It was started in 1809, by a dodgy sounding (probably crypto-Jewish) xtian called ‘Charles Simeon’ and the infamous William Wilberforce.

You can read up more about them on Wiki, HERE.

====

I’ve been going through all the Jewish converts – almost all rabbis, and sons of rabbis – who joined their ranks over the course of the 19th century, and it’s profoundly shocking, to say the least.

I’m going to list just a few names of their ‘Jewish missionaries’ below, with their bios – and only read them if you have a strong stomach for xtian c*ap.

Zebi Nasi Hirsch Prinz

Here’s a snippet about what they were getting up to then, in Israel – 100 years before ‘the State of Israel’ came into being, in 1948:

In 1836, two missionaries were sent to Jerusalem: Dr. Albert Gerstmann, a physician, and Melville Bergheim, a pharmacist, who opened a clinic that provided free medical services. By 1844, it had become a 24-bed hospital.

In its heyday, the society had over 250 missionaries. It supported the creation of the post of Anglican Bishop in Jerusalem in 1841, and the first incumbent was one of its workers, Michael Solomon Alexander.] The society was active in the establishment of Christ Church, Jerusalem, the oldest Protestant church in the Middle East, completed in 1849.

In 1863, the society purchased property outside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem. In 1897, they opened a hospital on the site, designed by architect Arthur Beresford Pite. Today, the building houses the Anglican International School Jerusalem, which is operated by the society.

====

All this is a problem.

But the much bigger problem is that this organisation is still going strong today.

HERE‘s their website, and here’s a few of the snippets I gleaned before the nauseous feeling overcame me:

CMJ is LINKED DIRECTLY TO THE ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY (AND ERGO, THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT AND THE QUEEN):

CMJ Mission Partners (PDF)

====

Like I said, all this is still just the tip of a massive iceberg.

There are so many ‘missionaries’ here that are born (externally…) Jews, or who belong to organisations and belief systems that were compromised a very long time ago.

We have no idea, just how far this rot has spread.

But we’re starting to guess.

And it’s frankly really scary.

====

UPDATE 3#:

When I plugged in those ‘medical missionaries’ to Jerusalem described above, I got to this xtian blog, which finally sets out who was really behind the whole ‘Zionist’ enterprise, to get Jews back to Eretz Israel.

Surprise surprise!

It wasn’t Jews.

It was ‘Christian Zionists’ – from 400 years ago.

Here’s a snippet, but go read the whole thing for yourself, if you really want to get a better idea of what’s been going on here, and why the State of Israel has been resolutely ‘anti-Torah’ and pro-missionising Jews right from the start:

In 1640 AD, Parliamentary censorship of the Puritans ended.  That same year, Jews were allowed to return to England, for the first time since they were expelled in 1290 AD.  It seemed like the time to help the Jews establish self-rule in the land of Israel was at hand.  So, the Puritan leaders in England met with the leading Ashkenazi rabbis of England in London, England, to offer their help in establishing Jewish self-rule in the land of Israel.  Much to their surprise, every single one of these rabbis was adamantly opposed this!

It seemed like the dream of Jewish self-rule in the land of Israel had became only the dream of Christian Zionists….

Christian Zionists bypassed the Rabbis, and met with ordinary Ashkenazi Jews. 

They sought to change the hearts and minds of Ashkenazi Jews, about Jews becoming self-governing in the land of Israel again.  They worked to change public opinion to support this idea.  They worked to change laws that would be favorable in helping Jews make the transition to a country, that did not even exist at the time. 

They worked to influence the Ottoman Empire to allow Jews to move back to the land of Israel in greater numbers.  One of them even spent his entire fortune building docks and inns in New Haven, Connecticut, to handle the large number of Jews, who would one day move to the Land of Israel, and set up a Jewish government there.

====

The xtian Rothschilds – and all the other secret xtianised ‘rabbis’, especially centered in around Vilna and Berlin – are just the front, the Trojan Horse, for these ‘xtian zionists’ – who themselves are probably just a front for the Sabeans, and I don’t know what else.

‘Shabtai Tzvi’ was handpicked as the candidate to get Jews to Israel, in 1666 – the year these xtian zionists had fixed as the ‘end of days’.

That’s a big statement, but I (think…) I can prove it.

There’s so much more to say here.

But I have to make supper and get ready to go to Meron later this evening, so this will have to wait a little while longer, until the birur is finally moved on a level.

    Nothing says God given bible like “the Revision Committee of the Old Testament.”

    It’s no small point to be spread to the masses that this historical view of cristianity was from the beginning a ploy to destroy Hashem’s Torah and His people.

    Rivka,

    So appreciate everything you are doing, its hard to understand how it could all happen, all these effects of xtianity on Judiasm. Of course though this was the Vatican’s plan to try to and severely weaken and compromise Judiasm. Sickening really. There is a mysterious story in my family’s history, that maybe others have experienced similar as well. My grandfather came to the USA through Ellis Island from Hamburg, Germany under the name Rudolph Schmerek. After WW1, he changed his name to Paul Rudolph Strand, claiming he was teased a lot over his name. My Mother told me of a story though where back in Buffalo NY, she heard my Grandmother say to him, “Take that Yamika off, do you want people to think we are Jewish!” At the time they went to (and I grew up as well) to the Presbyterian church, but my Mom said her Dad would hang out at the Synagogue with his Jewish friends(?)(!) Whole thing a headscratcher for me to this day. Would appreciate any insights. Also was told my Grandfather had an Uncle or Great Uncle who was a General during the Franco Prussian War. I have never found him, my Grandfather’s parents were Michael and Anna (Murduk). I am trying to ascertain a true Jewish connection here. Also were there a lot of Jews in Prussian times? Thanks for anyone’s help.

      There were tons and tons of (assimilated and assimilating…) Jews in Prussia.

      There is a strong possibility you do have some Jewish ancestors – although the more I delve into what was going on in that part of the world, the more it’s a massive can of worms, to say the least.

    I understand, but….why? Why were so many seemingly ignorant of the Torah and its ways or were not properly taught in the first place? Was it like class pressure where the xtians were well off and that enticed the poorer Jews? Also, just saying, was the “accident” in Meron a convenient way to get the 100,000 Jews who had gathered to disperse? Especially when another 100,000 were expected? Please come Moshiach!

    Oh My G-d, Rivka, you went to Meron? I hope you and your family are OK first of all. What a horrible thing happened there, attempted genocide, it seems. I wonder who their intended victim was: everybody? Anybdy in particular?The more real Jews killed the better? Evil monsters who wouldn’t let trapped Jews escape! Mass murderers!

    I know the Toldot Aharon Rebbetzin, a wonderful woman, I still remember the wise words she spoke to me years ago. So close to where you are….

    If anybody will give a truthful report of what happened there it will be you. May Hashem bring every victim of this horrible deed comfort, and may Hashem destroy the evil ones once and for all. I should not be ashamed to ask for this: it is part of the Tehillim read on Lag Ba’Omer, here:
