Ten years ago, when the ‘Nachlaot Pedophile Ring’ story exploded, there were so many people lining up to tell us we were all imagining it.

On the Times of Israel, they featured THIS post by one ‘Gertrude Regina Fishman’, a resident of Nachlaot.

====

It’s only when you get down to the comments section, that you understand that ‘Gertrude Regina Fishman’s’ spouse was one of the suspected pedophiles of Nachlaot.

If the commentators hadn’t pointed that out, we’d all just think that ‘Gertrude Regina Fishman’ was an objective commentator, just trying to calm things down in a rational manner so the real truth can come out.

BTW, that’s why having the context of who these writers and commentators really are is so very important, before being able to properly evaluate the bias in the information and opinions they provide. 

====

Here’s a couple of screenshots of the comments on that post, to keep everything together moving forward:

====

Who is this ‘murdered Professor Spielberg’?

At this stage, I have no idea.

But what I wanted to do in this post was to revisit some of the many people who were involved in ‘gaslighting’ the public about what really happened back in Nachlaot, because once you spot the modus operandi, you can see how it’s being applied by the same people, in the same way, over and over again.

And also, to fill in more of the details and facts that subsequently came out about some of the personalities involved in the Nachlaot pedophile ring, so we can compare and contrast what happened there, with what happened in Sanhedria with those 108 ‘kidnapped’ children, shortly afterwards.

The similarities are shocking.

Ready? Let’s begin.

====

***Before we begin, I just tripped over a mass of new information, that suggests that at least some of the rabbis below were deliberately fooled into writing these letters, by the fake-Jewish christian missionaries who are behind this ritual abuse of our children in Jerusalem.

I am leaving this post up intact, for now, as I try to figure out what’s really going on, but please bear this in mind as you read the below. And may God help us to get to the bottom of this, and stop this evil in its tracks, once and for all.***

EXHIBIT 1: NACHLAOT FALSELY ACCUSED BLOG

(Thanks to C., for sending me the link.)

This blog was set up in 2012, by an ‘anonymous someone’ in Nachlaot who claims he was falsely accused of being a pedophile.

It has a treasure-trove of information on it, including letters from Rabbis claiming that no molestation or pedophilia ever occurred in Nachlaot, and that it’s all just a figment of people’s overactive imaginations.

You can see it HERE.

====

So you can get a feel for where this ‘anonymous author’ is really coming from, morally, I screenshotted his response to the sentences handed down to two of the child rapists of Nachlaot, Benjamin Satz and Zalman Cohen, after they were found guilty:

====

Take heart, if reading this is making you feel queasy, that’s a sign that your soul is still very much alive and kicking.

So now, let’s take a closer look at some of the gaslighting and fire-fighting techniques these pedophiles used, to try and convince everyone that ‘nothing was going on in Nachlaot’.

====

EXHIBIT 2: LETTERS FROM RABBIS THAT WERE WRITTEN BEFORE COHEN AND SATZ WERE FOUND GUILTY

These letters were written after one of the suspected ringleaders of the pedophile ring, Sarah Vorst, was beaten up.

(We will come back to Sarah Vorst, and her links to the Ohel Sarah Imenu institute for ultra-orthodox conversions later on.)

Here’s how the anonymous blogger introduces these letters:

English translation of  letters written  by Rabbis, in response to the beating of  a 70 year old woman.  Also with references to the Child Molestation Accusations in Nachlaot.  A lot of the signatures are those of people living in the Nachlaot neighborhood. 

These letters were written as a result of extensive investigation into the matter at the request of the neighborhood by various Rabbis, social workers, the police, and the organization Yad LeAchim. 

If anyone would like the original letters in Hebrew, let me know and I will send them to you. Includes a letter from Yad LeAchim and several important Rabbis.

====

You can see these letters for yourself HERE.

Let’s go through them, one by one.

Here’s a pertinent screenshot – and again, pay attention to the very strange language this man is using:

==

Isn’t it strange, that someone who is apparently meant to be searching for the truth about what happens says openly he’s ‘happy’ he apparently found evidence that lets all the pedophiles off the hook?

And you can see for yourself, what sort of flimsy ‘evidence’ he apparently found to come to that conclusion…

Yehuda Porush was appointed by one R’ Zundel Kroizer.

Snippet:

Around the end of Kislev 5772 (end of December 2011) I was appointed by the personal request of Maran HaGaon HaGadol Rav Zundel Kroizer Shlit”a to serve as the representative of the committee, and so the one signed below (i.e., the writer of this letter) entered into the thickness of the spider’s web, with the agreement of the committee.

====

THIS is the geni page for R’ Zundel Kroizer:

Immediately, I see that R’ Kroizer is married to a ‘PORUSH’, and that his mother is an Eisenstein.

That suggests to me that ‘Yehuda PORUSH’, our letter writer, is close family.

And it also connects us straight back to Sarah Vorst, who was working closely with one ‘R Nochum Eisenstein‘ as part of her ‘Ohel Sarah Imenu’ conversion program.

This screenshot comes from the Luke Ford article on Ohel Sarah Imenu (written shortly before the pedophile scandal erupted), HERE:

====

As an aside, if you go HERE, you’ll discover that ‘R Leib Tropper’ was involved in terrible abuse scandals himself, and was forced to resign his position at the EJF.

You see, birds of a feather really do flock together.

Let’s continue.

====

The next letter was written by one ‘R Yosef Zilberman’, head of the Talmud Torah in the Old City:

====

Here is what he says:

====

Doesn’t anyone else find it totally shocking, that someone who is involved with educating children is basically saying that you shouldn’t believe anything your child tells you, about possibly being abused?

If we shouldn’t believe our child, then how on earth are we meant to protect them from abusers, even when they tell us what is going on?

So, I go and check out ‘Yosef Silberman’s’ family tree and whaddya know?

He descends from a whole bunch of Schiffs and Frankels that are some of the founding families of the Sabbatean-Frankist network.

I’m sure that’s just a CO-IN-CID-ENCE.

====

This next letter is one of the more disturbing, at least for me, because it’s written by Yad L’Achim.

Screenshot:

====

I’m guessing that Yad L’Achim relied on the ‘investigation’ of the police in Nachlaot, who assured them there are absolutely no tunnels, and absolutely no way xtians and churches are involved in all this.

But fast-forward a decade, and so many of the Sanhedria pedophile victims – who were connected to each other, and presumably not reading up on old reports of what happened in Nachlaot before they spoke to their therapists – reported EXACTLY THE SAME THING.

Same xtian rituals, same tunnels, same abuse taking place in churches.

HERE‘s the documentary again, in Hebrew.

This is a google translated snippet of the reaction to that documentary (it should read Orly Levy-Abecassis, but got mistranslated):

====

HERE is where I wrote up a few things about what was going on in Sanhedria.

And the point is this: the police are obviously and deliberately covering up for the pedophile ring in Sanhedria, and were almost definitely deliberately covering up for the pedophile ring in Nachlaot too.

====

One more word, about why Lev Achim may have written this letter (assuming they aren’t also fundamentally corrupted).

Snippet:

Before we publicized this Announcement, we were happy to hear that we had understood the matter in the same way as Gedolim (Great Sages), and also that the Great Sages of Jerusalem had rejected the matter and the rumors entirely, and even published a shocking letter on the topic.

====

Who are these ‘great sages of Jerusalem’?

Why, it’s Zundel Kroizer and Yehuda Porush, who seem to have some very close ties to some of the people directly connected to the allegations.

And so we see, how the ‘secular’ and ‘religious’ Erev Rav in our midst conspire with each other to totally confuse sincere, God-fearing people who believe that the police would never cover-up for pedophiles, and that the rabbis are only and always good people.

Moving on.

====

You might recognise the name of the next letter writer.

It’s one ‘R Yehuda Silman’, of Chaim Walder fame, screenshot from HERE.

====

Here’s what this selfsame Yehuda Silman wrote to the concerned parents of Nachlaot, about not spreading rumours without first properly checking into things:

Ah, the stunning hypocrisy.

But what’s really interesting to me, is that we see how unilaterally, ‘the rabbis’ parachuted into this matter, and decided that THEY would have ‘sole authority to decide what to do and how to act’.

These types of ‘closed’, authoritarian processes become all too easy to hijack and pervert.

====

Here’s the last letter, for now, from one R Moshe Shapira.

====

I’m going to excerpt this one in full, as it brings us back around to some very disturbing questions that need answering.

****New information suggests that this is the letter, in particular, that may have been obtained by false means, as a way to ‘frame’ R Moshe Shapira.****

====

The sword of war comes to the world because of the perversion of justice and and for interpreting the Torah decision in opposition to the Halachah.

And behold, several people who are not certified to make Halachic decisions took upon themselves to judge a death sentence without witnesses and clear proofs on the basis of imagination and guesses and stories of words from the mouths of young children who were not speaking in innocence.

They made a judgment against a woman who was known to be a righteous person for many years, a convert who raised sons who are Torah Scholars and was trusted by the Batei Dinim (Rabbinic Courthouses) that are occupied with conversion of righteous converts.

They hit her and wounded her and bruised her from the sole of her foot to until her head, serious injuries that even a young man would have difficulty surviving, and she is a woman of about 70, and it’s about a month that she is suffering and being treated at hospitals. And it is a requirement upon the elders of the city to pray “atone for your people Israel which you Hashem have redeemed and do not put innocent blood in the midst of your people Israel”. A

nd on how many serious sins do we need a great atonement, on the prohibition to punish without clear proofs as it is written “and a clean person and a righteous person do not kill”, and on the prohibitions “do not add more” (i.e., don’t give more than 39 whippings when giving a punishment) which are very serious, and on all the 36 places that the Torah warned about the convert, and on the matter of between a man and his fellow which is awesome. Also it is upon the elders to clarify and make known throughout the public gates “our hands did not shed this blood”, and we command with full force and beg with every language of request, “stop doing evil deeds which are not according to Halacha”.

And from this Kosher woman who has not stopped being righteous, we request that she pardon those who injured her against the law and by mistake because in their mind they were doing it for the sake of saving their children.

Moshe Shapira

I hereby join in with a full heart and I came especially to fortify the righteous Kosher woman who is very strong in her pure faith and she should be blessed by the Master of blessings in every way and merit to celebrate Passover with happiness and enjoyment.

Shmuel Ben Adoni Avi Mori V’Rabi Gaon Yisrael Shlomo Zalman zllh”h Auerbach

I hereby join to what was stated above

Natan HaCohen Kopshitz

Nisim Karelitz

[in the handwritten version of the letter there is some handwriting which is hard to read here, which is signed by Rabbi Yehuda Silman]

====

There are some big names signed to this letter, written about Sarah Vorst.

The late R’ Moshe Shapira was Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshiva Pischei Olam, wrote a lot of seforim, and according to YWN, was ‘one of the biggest Baalei Musar and Machshava in the generation.’

Natan Kopshitz runs (or at least, ran in the past) the Rabbinical Supervisory Committee in Bet Shemesh.

Nissim Karelitz, who died in 2019, also has an impressive biography, from Wikipedia HERE:

Karelitz was a nephew of Rabbi Avrohom Yeshaya Karelitz, known as the Chazon Ish. (The latter’s sister was Karelitz’s mother)...

In his youth, he studied in the Ponevezh Yeshiva…His wife Leah (d. 2015) was the daughter of Rabbi Tzvi Hirsch Kopshitz of Jerusalem and the great-granddaughter of Rabbi Yosef Chaim Sonnenfeld.

Rav Karelitz died in Bnei Brak on October 21, 2019. His funeral by tens of thousands, and he was eulogized by Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky, his first cousin, and by Rabbi Gershon Edelstein, Rosh Yeshiva of Ponevezh.

====

So, we see from this that Natan Kopshitz and R Karelitz were also related to each other.

R Karelitz was also very involved in ‘ultra orthodox’ conversions.

Snippet from Wikipedia:

Karelitz’s beit din in Israel performs conversions on people who are residing illegally in the state of Israel.

This means several things: (1) The conversion process goes against Israeli law which gives the state more reason to reject such conversions. (2) The converts, who often live many years illegally in Israel, are eventually forced to leave (deportation, or due to lack of financial means to support oneself).

====

And so, we come back around to Sarah Vorst, and the ‘Ohel Sarah Imenu’ institute for ‘ultra orthodox’ conversions.

The following screenshots come from the Luke Ford article on the ‘Ohel Sarah Imenu Conversion Program’, HERE.

====

Zalman Cohen was one of the few people actually brought to justice, if you can call it that, in connection to the Nachlaot Pedophile ring.

Let’s see if we can figure out a bit more about Sarah Vorst and ‘Ohel Sarah Imenu’.

This is a screenshot of another comment from that Luke Ford article, referred to above:

====

For now, I’m going to leave this here.

There is a lot to think about.

I’m sure that when God is ready, more pieces of this sordid tale will fall into place, and then it will become as clear as day, just how badly all the Sabbatean-Frankists in our midst have corrupted the Jewish community, on all sides of the equation.

(I just tripped over some more mind-blowing information, that fills in a lot of the blanks, but slowly slowly with all this stuff….)

But let’s end with this:

If your child tells you they aren’t feeling ‘comfortable’ around someone – even if it’s a relative, even if it’s a ‘rabbi’, if it’s a ‘kosher, righteous woman’ – believe them.

    It was over 35 years before the long-rumored and long-denied-to-exist tunnels were, finally, confirmed to be real, the validating every single outrageously lurid detail told over by the young victims. Not by some “conspiracy theorists” or aspiring journalists, but the actual FBI.

    I have no doubt the alleged tunnels in these more recent cases are just as real.

    Sorry, I was referring to the McMartin Preschool case of the early 1980s. Tunnels were central to the accusations there too, and for some reason, despite the FBI records attesting to their existence, the Los Angeles prosecutors and police were simply incapable of finding them, and denied their existence, and threw each of the cases they tried.

      Yeah, someone else already told me.

      It’s actually good, because each time we get to a ‘crunch point’ spiritually for the Jewish people, there needs to be more ‘bizayon’, to smooth the path…

      As Rebbe Nachman explains in Likutey Moharan.

    Shabuah Tov, Lady Rivkah

    As always your blogs are super interesting and as usual revealing super interesting data on topics that are “Met Mitzvah”.

    I would like to comment on a point you made on the blog.

    “Before we begin, I just tripped over a mass of new information, that suggests that at least some of the rabbis below were deliberately fooled into writing these letters, by the fake-Jewish christian missionaries who are behind this ritual abuse of our children in Jerusalem”-

    Personally, it is very difficult for me to believe in the manipulation of the Rabbis, my intention is not to judge, that is not up to me, I know my place, but if I meditate a little on this subject, I think that every Rabbi who has the strength to write letters that are read on a large scale in the people of Israel, you should do a more in-depth investigation and even try to get good advice before giving a verdict, why do I say it? Since I have had a lot of experience on this subject, where the rabbis “let themselves” be manipulated by their “sources” without seeking more information. This has become a very marked custom and the only thing left behind are unwanted results and many Korbanot.

    “Doesn’t anyone else find it totally shocking, that someone who is involved with educating children is basically saying that you shouldn’t believe anything your child tells you, about possibly being abused?”

    Although I would like to think positive, my reality is that no, rather the opposite, it is very common to give little importance to children and their words, this is not only in Judaism but also in the world, it is something that surprises me, because every time I see more mediocrity in the duties of the different parties that have “power”, which is generating a destruction little by little and becomes more inevitable every day. Since they do not give importance to their role, and they minimize things that can become super transcendental.

      I tend to agree with you, Binuimin.

      But, there is still a duty to not just automatically assume everything we hear is true. Everything has to be very carefully checked ourselves, before we permit ourselves to have a strong opinion that things are 100% true.

      Look how they went after Rav Berland with these same tactics…

      While leaving all the molesting, pedophile-protecting ‘rebbes’ alone, and still praising and lauding them.
