The ‘Abraham Peretz’ / Jonathan Eybshutz connection

If you read part 1 of this series, then you’ll know that I kind of hit a dead end, trying to figure out who the Chief Rabbi of Vilna at the time of the Vilna Gaon really was.

His name was (apparently…) ‘Shmuel ben Avigdor’, and even though the whole kehilla in Vilna was at war with each other for 30 years because of him, and because of his father-in-law (R’ Yehudah ben Eliezer Safra veDayana) – who bought him the Chief Rabbinate as a lifetime position with a big bribe – you just can’t track these people down in the real world.

At least, that’s how it looked yesterday.

But then today, God is showing me that there is more than one way to skin a cat, and that when all the doors are locked tight, sometimes, you can still get in via a window.

====

I was going back over a document of information I gathered together a few months ago, entitled ‘Loose Ends’.

It contains a whole bunch of stuff in there about Rivlins and Zeitlins and Brodas, amongst other things. As I read through, I came across this, excerpted from the Kotzk blog HERE, talking about the conversion of the Alter Rebbe’s son, Moshe Schneuri – with a weird connection to our very own Abraham Peretz.

(BTW, that blog post contains a ton of footnoted facts and a discussion of Moshe Schneuri’s conversion from both perspectives, within Chabad and external to Chabad. I highly recommend you take a look at it. Here, I’m just bringing a small snippet, to move our part of the story along:)

====

Here is another account [of Moshe Shneuri’s conversion] from the maskil Moshe Berlin of Shklov:

The death of the first zaddik (Schneur Zalman)…sparked debate among the Hasidim regarding the choice of his successor…The eldest, Moshe, had a certain reputation as a scholar, but he was wedded to his desires, behaved immodestly, and did not observe Jewish law strictly. The youngest son, Avraham, although a simple, straight individual, was not a scholar…The middle son, Berke, was also no scholar, and he too was wedded to his desires. 

But being…a talented, and hardworking, preacher he knew how to draw attention and to attract the love of the communal elders by various means, such as flattery, distributing honors, and the like. In order to keep his older brother Moshe from blocking his aspiration to take his father’s place, Berke persecuted and humiliated him as much as he could, driving Moshe to the brink of despair. Consequently, and in order…to embarrass his brother Berke, Moshe converted to Christianity…And Moshe himself, whose conscience was not clear, went insane and died in St. Petersburg.[8]

Chabad historian Yosef Kaminetzky counters such accounts by writing:

During the same period, an embarrassing case of conversion occurred among the opponents of Hassidism: that of Avraham Peretz, the son-in-law of Yehoshua Zeitlin, who lived in the same city as Chabad founder Shneur Zalman. The Chabad leader himself prophesied that Peretz would leave the faith. The opponents of Hassidism had spread the story about Moshe’s supposed conversion to deflect attention from their own shame.

====

Doesn’t this strike you as strange?

That apparently no less than the Alter Rebbe would ‘prophesy’ that Abraham Peretz was going to leave the faith, and that Abraham Peretz is being held up by Chabad historians as the real story of the conversion of Moshe Schneuri?

There’s been so many twists and turns in this tale, we still can’t really know how all this is connected. Yet. But, we can say this:

If Abraham Peretz = Moshe Schneuri, then that makes the father of Abraham Peretz the Alter Rebbe.

And as we already covered in a few posts already:

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

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

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

====

I still don’t know which version – if either! – is correct, that Yehoshua Zeitlin is the Alter Rebbe’s father-in-law, or the father-in-law of the Alter Rebbe’s son, but let’s see if we can find some more information about ‘Abraham Peretz’, to try and clarify matters a little more.

====

Back on the expanded description about Abraham Peretz under his geni profile HERE, we are told that his father is ‘Rabbi of Levertov, Israel Peretz’.

In the first post, we learned that Abraham’s uncle was none other than ‘Zvi Hirsch Berlin’ aka Hart Lyon, former Chief Rabbi of the UK – a grandchild of the Chacham Tzvi via his mother, Miriam.

So, I start looking through all of ‘Hart Lyon’s’ listed siblings, to see if any of them are either named ‘Israel’, or are married to an ‘Israel Peretz’.

Whaddya know? 

I can’t find a dickie bird – except for THIS weird and misleading profile for ‘the wife of Zvi Hirsh Margoliot, the ABD of Lublin‘, uploaded by none other than Keith Lawrence Hanit.

Whenever I hit dear Keith, I know I’m on the right path.

====

Also, Abraham Peretz called his first (and apparently only Jewish son…) ‘Tzvi Hirsch’, and we know that these families usually called their children after their grandparents, which makes ‘Zvi Hirsch Margoliot’ a leading contender for Abraham Peretz’s father.

And lastly, Levertov / Lubartow is close to Lublin, so it wouldn’t stretch things too far to replace one with the other – especially at this far remove in history.

But why go to all this trouble, to hide this information?

What’s the big deal, who Abraham Peretz’s father really is?

Let’s see if we can find out.

====

Zvi Hirsch Margoliot is listed as having three children:

  1. Joshua Heshel Margulis of Pietrokov
  2. Jacob Margulis
  3. Isaac Meshulam Zalman Margulis of Pietrokov-Lublin

One of these guys is a candidate for the real ‘Abraham Peretz’.

I start clicking through, and here’s what I learn:

The unnamed wife of Joshua Heshel Margulis is the sister of ‘Zlata Rivka Eybshutz’. 

Zlata is married to Aryeh Menachem Eybshutz – who is the son of Natan Nata Eybshutz.

====

(I know all this is hard to follow, sorry. I’m setting all this down as a kind of public record, and hopefully at the end of this process, may it come soon, I’ll be able to link everything up and make it much easier and clearer to understand what is really going on. It’s a very painful and drawn-out birur, I appreciate that.)

Natan Nata Eybshutz is probably one and the same as the famous shtadlan and businessmen in the Russian empire who was a contemporary of Joshua Zeitlin and Abraham Peretz, Natan Nota Notkin.

I wrote a lot about Natan Nota Notkin HERE, and this is a relevant snippet:

====

There’s another interesting descendant of Yonatan Eybshutz as well (not including this two sons ‘Wolf’ and Mordechai-Marcus, who were both openly Sabbatian / Frankists.)

He is Natan Nata Eybshutz, named for Eybshutz’s ‘illustrious’ ancestor Natan Nata Spira, the Megulat Amukot.

CO-INC-IDEN-TALLY, one of the most famous ‘Shadlanim’ of that time was a guy named Natan Nota Notkin.

I can find so very little about him online, but here’s where you can read a little more about him:

“A merchant from Shklov, Nota Haimovich Notkin was invited to St. Petersburg together with Abram Perets by Catherine II.”

His life story parallels that of Joshua Zeitlin almost exactly.

====

CO-INC-IDEN-TAL-LY, there’s a strange story on the Chabad website which tells us this, about Natan Nata Notkin:

In the year 1798, Rabbi Shneur Zalman was falsely informed upon by his detractors and accused of treason. When he was finally exonerated and released from prison toward the evening of the 19th of Kislev, the authorities asked him where they should bring him.

He replied that they should bring him to the home of Reb Mordechai Liepler, one of his followers. In the same building, there also lived one of the leading mitnagdim (opponents of the chassidim), by the name of R’ Nota Notkin, and unfortunately, Rabbi Shneur Zalman was mistakenly taken to his home instead.

For three hours, until the chassidim realized what happened, he berated, complained and argued against the chassidim, to the extent that Rabbi Schneur Zalman later remarked that he suffered more during those three hours than the entire time he was imprisoned.

====

This is strange for a lot of reasons, not least that elsewhere, Nota Notkin is credited for being the man who arranged the release of Shneur Zalman from prison in the first place.

====

Here’s another link between ‘Natan Nata Notkin’ (Eybshutz) and the Vilna Gaon / Alter Rebbe:

According to the ‘official history’ of the Gaon’s family, screenshotted below, (which is full of fake names and falsified dates) the Gaon’s son or grandson (?), ‘Shlomo Zalman Rivlin’, marries ‘Natan Nota Notkin’ (Eybshutz’s) daughter, Frumka.

This is the same Natan Nota Notkin who is the shtadlan who gets the ‘Shneur Zalman [unknown surname] aka Alter Rebbe out of Russian prison, and even has him delivered to his own home, according to Chabad’s own sources.

====

The dates and details on geni have all been deliberately muddled-up and obfuscated, so it’s hard to pin things down 100%.

Typically, the ‘Keith Lawrence Hanits’ on geni do an excellent job of attributing genealogies to the wrong siblings, and adding in fake generations by replicating names and creating ‘half siblings’ where none existed.

So, I take the ‘story’ being told there with a massive pinch of salt, until and unless I find other sources to corroborate what seems to be the ‘real story’.

According to the geni genealogy, Natan Nata (Notkin) Eybshutz is listed as the son of ‘Yehuda Leib Eybshutz’ – brother of Jonathan Eybshutz, the (not so secret) secret Sabbataean.

But I know from previous research that Jonathan Eybshutz himself had a son called ‘Natan Nata Eybshutz’ – who totally disappeared off the radar, like so very many of Jonathan Eybshutz’s children and grandchildren.

And so far, most of the descendants of Jonathan Eybshutz who I could actually track down in the real world,  like August Bondi, have been married into known Frankist families and / or deeply connected to the Freemasons.

====

It seems to me, that ‘Yehuda Leib Eybshutz’ and ‘Yonatan Eybshutz’ may well be the same person (at least, on geni…)

I now have at least a day and a half of checking out this theory, to see what else it might turn up, so I think I will leave this post here, in the meantime.

Isn’t it amazing, though, how all roads in this troubling episode seem to lead back to Vilna, and the Vilna Gaon and the Alter Rebbe?

Isn’t it amazing, how the same names, the same people, keep coming up again and again and again, in some very unexpected ways?

They’ve done a fabulous job of covering things up, you have to hand it to them.

But ultimately, you can’t suppress the truth forever.

And it seems to me, we are fast approaching that time when it finally comes out.

What happened in the past is still very much relevant for the present.

And of course, for the future.

While I was tootling around trying to figure out who ‘Rabbi Jacob Franks’, Number 2, the slave trader in the USA as opposed to the false messiah in Poland, really was, and who he’s connected to, and why certain people are going to such great pains to keep all that hidden, I came across the following:

====

I’m not at all ‘political’.

I think that they are ALL swamp creatures, wherever they happen to live in the world, and whichever party they happen to be part of.

However, I’ve noticed that ‘Adam Schiff’ has been standing out in recent years as one of the key detractors of Trump in the Whitehouse, and one of the main people who was pushing the whole ‘Russiagate’ and impeachment thing in the media.

I also know that Adam Schiff is a distant (apparently…) relative of Jacob Schiff – the guy whose family apparently ‘shared a house’ in Frankfurt with the Rothschilds, and who was sent over to the USA (so the story goes….) as an agent of those selfsame Rothschilds.

You can read more about Jacob Schiff on Wikipedia HERE.

Here’s a taster:

Schiff was born in 1847 in Frankfurt am MainGermany, to Moses and Clara (née Niederhofheim) Schiff, members of a distinguished Ashkenazi Jewish rabbinical family that traced its lineage in Frankfurt back to 1370.

One ancestor, David Tevele Schiff, became lead rabbi in Great Britain and from 1765 until his death was acting head of the London Synagogue.

Meir Ben Jacob Schiff, another relative, had become renowned as a Talmudic scholar and commentator in the 14th century. Jacob’s father, Moses Schiff, was a broker for the Rothschilds.[1] Schiff was educated in the schools of Frankfurt, and was first employed in the banking and brokerage business as an apprentice in 1861.

====

What fabulous yichus!!

In my attempts to figure out who the Rothschilds really were, before they became ‘Rothschilds’, I’ve narrowed it down to the Schiff family, the Brandeis family and the Bacharach family.

Because, don’t you know, the Rothschilds also had fabulous yichus!!!!

Just it’s very hard to track it down, because they went to great lengths to cover it all over.

====

So anyway, Jacob Schiff funded the Bolshevik Revolution; and he also was a key financial backer and ‘pusher’ of Reform; and he was also a big funder of Zionism.

Amongst other things.

If you actually read Marvin Antelman’s To Eliminate the Opium, he does a great job of breaking down how Schiff was a very crucial part of the Sabbatean / Frankist network, that took over every part of the Jewish world.

You can get the free PDF of Volume 1, HERE.

And the PDF for Volume 2, HERE.

====

Here’s an excerpt from Volume 1, which starts to explain how the Rothschilds, Schiffs and Warburgs are all connected – and also connected to a lot of bad things happening in the world:

In our previous discussions we touched briefly on the Schiff-Rothschild interrelationships, and members of the Bund der Gerechten.

Max Warburg, for example, ran the M. N.Warburg Company in Frankfurt, and was a major financier of the Bolshevik Revolution. His bank financed Adolf Hitler. His brother Paul married Nina Loeb, daughter of Solomon Loeb of
Kuhn, Loeb and Company. [Jacob Schiff’s bank].

The other brother Felix married Frieda Schiff, Jacob Schiff’s daughter.

====

Apostate Jew Karl Marx was closely associated with the Bund, and Antelman does a good job of showing how so many Frankist / Sabbetean crypto Jews who’d ’embraced xtianity’, at least externally, used the Bund to foment chaos in the world. There are close ties between the Bund and the (communist…) proto State of Israel, too. But that’s a post for another time.

====

Here’s an excerpt from Volume 2, which links Jonathan Eybshutz to the Schiff family, too:

Eibeschutz was born in 1690, and lost his father in his youth. When Eibeschutz grew older, his mother sent him to Prossnitz to study in the Yeshiva of Rabbi Meir Eisenstadt, a secret Sabbatian sympathizer. It was here that he studied under the tutelage of Judah Leib Prossnitz, who initiated him into Sabbatianism.

It is interesting to note another coincidence. The mother of the now fatherless Jonathan Eibeschutz, who sent her son knowingly into Sabbatian studies, was a member of the Schiff family.

Professor Judah Leibes in his book, Sabbatian Secrets (in Hebrew) citing Rabbi-Professor S.Z. Leiman,
quotes a document (p. 214) which states Eibeschutz’s family had him secretly baptized by a Christian cleric named Maysinger on the day of his circumcision.

It would be interesting to know more about the Schiffs at this juncture of history.

Were members of this illustrious family defecting to Sabbatianism? We would be able to know except for the fact that some mysterious disappearances occurred in conjunction with some other interesting “coincidences” that prevent us from penetrating the subject any further.

Thus Scholem informs us: The important file on the Frankists in the Prague Community Archives was
removed by the president of the community at the end of the 19th century, out of respect for the families implicated in it.

====

Rabbi Antelman has meticulous footnotes referencing his sources in both books.

I’ve left them out here on the blog, but feel free to go and read up in the original PDFs.

====

So, when that link for Adam Schiff popped up, as part of my research on the two Jacob Frank(s), I took a look.

Here’s an excerpt of what it said:

Adam’s paternal grandfather was Frank Ephraim Schiff (the son of Yaakov/Jacob Zalman/Solomon Schiff and Bessie Mary Frank). Adam’s grandfather Frank was born in England, to Lithuania Jewish parents. Yaakov was born in Kaunas, the son of Louis Schiff. Bessie was born in Ukmergė, Vilnius County, the daughter of Yisroel Moshe Frank and Jennie Brendal.

Adam’s paternal grandmother was Martha Sneirson/Sneierson (the daughter of Gershon/George Sneierson/Sneirson and Sarah/Sara H. Dubinsky). Martha was born in Massachusetts, to Russian Jewish parents. Gershon was born in Riga, Latvia. Sarah was the daughter of Solomon/Samuel Dubinsky and Rosa “Rosie” Saltinsky.

====

This post was written in 2016, and at the bottom of the post, there was the geni profile for Adam Schiff, so I clicked on, because I wanted to see if I could discover a link between Jacob Frank (false messiah) and his descendants, and Adam Schiff.

Because almost all the evidence connecting Jacob Frank’s many descendants to leading figures in the Jewish world, both then and now, has been deliberately destroyed.

And very quickly, I see something weird:

All the references to Martha Sneirson and her family have been removed from geni.

Now, why would someone want to do that?

====

So, I start trying to find out who ‘Martha Sneirson’ actually was, and that brings me to this page:

http://www.eilatgordinlevitan.com/kurenets/k_pages/schneerson.html

Like so many of the ‘independent’ Jewish genealogy pages, Eilat stopped updating a few years ago. But you still can find some good info there, that hasn’t been totally censored.

That’s when I start to realise that ‘Martha Sneirson’ is actually part of the ‘Schneerson’ family.

Ahhhh.

But how are the Chabad Rebbes related to Adam Schiff, Democrat and lead Trump baiter?

====

I’d love to be able to tell you.

But every avenue I’m trying to track that down leads to a dead end.

For example, I found ‘Gershon Sneirson‘ on geni – deliberately disconnected now from Adam Schiff’s profile, and also ‘floating in space’ himself, with no parents or siblings.

And I’ve already written elsewhere about the hugely misleading, and partial, information on the ‘official’ Chabad family trees.

And this is a big part of why I feel that there is something very wrong going on here.

If it’s no big deal, who Adam Schiff’s ancestors were, why the big cover up?

====

Adam Schiff is currently playing a huge part in world affairs, over there in America.

His actions have attracted the attention of a whole bunch of people who are using him as an example of why it’s ok to be an anti-semitic Jew-hater.

If Adam Schiff is the descendant of pseudo-Jewish Frankist Sabbateans – who had and still have a whole plot going on to destroy the Jewish people and Torah Judaism in every way possible – we, the people, need to know about it.

It’s certainly a curious coincidence, that the ‘Frank’ family, the ‘Schiff’ family and the ‘Sneirson’ family have produced a descendant who is probably stirring up more anti-semitism against the Jewish people in the US right now, than any other person.

(And that’s certainly saying something…)

====

Let’s just end with a quick rundown of some of the interesting pies Adam Schiff has had his thumb in, over the years, as listed on Wikipedia:

Schiff voted in favor of the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

In 2015, Schiff supported the Saudi Arabian-led intervention in Yemen.

Schiff introduced bipartisan legislation to repeal the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Terrorists, the legislation passed in the days after the September 11 attacks to combat al-Qaeda, because he felt that “the current AUMF is outdated and straining at the edges to justify the use of force outside the war theater”… In addition… Schiff has been a forceful proponent of debating and voting on a new war authorization against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

Schiff has been a very prominent supporter of national defense spending. Schiff has voted for every increase in the defense budget over the course of his career.

When he became the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee in 2019, Schiff took a personal mission to investigate Trump’s connections to Russia, separate from the investigation by the Special Counsel.[66] (Hey, look what number footnote this is!)

As chairman of the Intelligence Committee, Schiff was one of the lead investigators in the impeachment inquiry against Donald Trump stemming from the Trump–Ukraine scandal….

On January 15, 2020, House Speaker Nancy Pelosinamed Schiff as a lead impeachment manager.[80][81] In this role, Schiff leads a team of seven House members responsible for presenting the impeachment case against President Donald Trump during his trial before the United States Senate

====

As always, there is a lot more to say here.

And it’s certainly true, that we have to be judged on our own merits, and not by the family and yichus we come from.

But I keep coming up against so much deliberate cover up and distortion of who the main ‘Jewish’ players in our present world are really connected to, by blood, that I’m increasingly finding it hard to find a ‘nice’ explanation for all this.

Why are certain people, certain families, certain groups, at the centre of so very many lies and obfuscations?

What are they trying to hide?

For good or for bad, I think more and more of us are starting to figure that out.

Two days ago, one of my good friends sent me this email:

Looks like Rav Berland may be getting out!

https://www.inn.co.il/news/463615

Apparently they have to come up with an alternate to actual imprisonment. I assume that means something like house arrest. They said it’s because his health is too frail…
Maybe this is the beginning of the end.
====
The link above will take you to a story on the Hebrew site of Israel National News, where it’s actually really hard to make out what’s meant to be going on, but there is some vague suggestion that the Rav may be soon released to some sort of ‘house arrest’.
Of course, that doesn’t mean he’ll be allowed back to his house, or that they’ll take all the electronic tracking devices off him, or that they’ll enable the Rav to have proper medical attention.
Of course not!!!
The State of Israel is still trying to kill him, God forbid a billion times.
BUT.

God is running the world, and God isn’t letting them.

====
Rebbe Nachman talks about a concept about how there is even a sense of ‘justice’ on the left (identified with the ‘bad’ side.)
Don’t get confused, this isn’t a political statement. That doesn’t mean that the ‘right’ is automatically good, or that anything that aligns themselves to ‘left’ or ‘right’ in this world can be judged superficially, not at all.
But spiritually, to totally over-simplify, ‘left’ is the side of evil, while right is the side of good. And Rabbenu explains by way of a story how there is even ‘justice’ on the left side – it just begins way, way later than over on the side of good, and is way, way diluted.
====

Here’s how Rabbenu explains it (my words, as I can’t find the source right now. BH, reader Rachel will be able to locate it!)

An Russian military captain came through a Jewish village, and wanted to make some quick money. So, he told the community leaders that he had orders to take all their horses – for free – for the military.
The village leaders got together, raised a some of money, and bribed the captain to leave them and their horses alone.
But the captain told one of his friends in the military what he’d done, and advised him to go and try his luck, too.
So, this friend also went along to the village, pulled the same stunt, and again, the village leaders raised a large sum of money to pay him off and make him go away.
====

Shortly afterwards, a real captain with real orders from the Russian government to take the villagers’ horses for the the army rode into town.

Tearfully, the village leaders went to see him, and explained that they’d already paid two hefty bribes to other army captains, to have their horses left alone. And now, it would be totally unfair for them to still have their horses taken by the military!
Amazingly, the Russian captain agreed.
Rabbenu then explained how there is a sense of ‘justice’ even on the ‘left’ side, it just begins way, way after the sense of ‘justice’ on the right side of things.
====

Why am I telling that story?

Because I’m starting to feel that maybe we are heading over the bump, finally, for this totally evil government.
Even this totally evil government has got to the point where they can no longer justify keeping an 84 year old holy man, with 26 different serious illnesses, in a maximum security prison for the ‘crime’ of accepting charitable donations that were freely given.
(BTW, I also heard that the person who filed the complaint against the Rav had a serious stroke a few weeks back, and can’t remember anything about anything….)

There is no case against the Rav, and there never was.

And there was no previous case against the Rav, either, just so many of us were still being totally fooled by all the lies being told by the corrupt media, government, police, judiciary, and of course, all those corrupt, pseudo ‘orthodox Jews’ who were leading the charge.
====

That doesn’t mean we are going ‘back to normal’.

We never are. And that’s a good thing, because ‘normal’ was built on a world of lies, evil and tremendous human suffering.
I’m still beavering away here, working on the next set of ‘historical knots’ that need unpicking. I’m getting a steer in my hitbodedut now to focus on how pseudo-Jews were playing a crucial part in the slave trade; how all that is connected to both East India Trade Companies; how all that is somehow connected to the very real phenomenon of the Frankist-Sabbatean-Jesuit-Freemason-Royalty-Illuminati; and finally – to go and research the Mir yeshiva.
Yes, that one is a little surprising to me, too, but I’ve learnt from experience that I can’t discount all these strange ideas that somehow pop up until I’ve properly researched them.
====

Two more things to add, in this mish-mash post, before I start researching the Mir:

1) The ‘lockdown’ in Israel – even this apparently much harsher one – is very strange.
There are hardly any police enforcing anything, anywhere.
Yes, shops and schools are shut. Yes, a lot of people are still intimidated, and the streets were pretty empty on Friday and Shabbat.
But already now, more and more of us are noticing that there seems to be very little real enforcement going on this time again.
There are no barriers at the end of my street, marking the boundary for my neighborhood, with police checking I have ‘permission’ to go further than a kilometre from my house.

There are no roadblocks through town – at least the bits my family have been going through.

It’s starting to feel as though the power of the government to enforce it’s evil agenda is finally starting to wane.

So of course, Bibi is going to try and start a war with Iran, to shore things up for himself again, so he can complete his ‘mission’.

====

And that brings me to the last thing I wanted to say, that segues back into THIS post, and this video, below:

====

At the end of this extremely bizarre exchange, this pair of ‘cousins’ say the following:

Bibi: I have come to you at the start and I intend to return to you many times.

Rebbe: You will have to struggle with 119 others in the Knesset. Surely, you won’t be intimidated. Because God is on this side. Blessing and success with God’s mission.

====

Today, I happened to see this headline:

====

Netanyahu is literally taking over every aspect of the government.

And he’s definitely not working for you and me.

In fact, he’s starting to make even Shimon Peres look good, in comparison, which is really saying something.

And he’s doing all this with a blessing from the Rebbe, that he’ll continue on right until the bitter end, even when he’s fighting against the other 119 members of the Knesset.

Think carefully about what that might imply.

Because very soon, it’s all going to be impossible to hide anymore.

====

UPDATE:

I found the story from Rabbenu. It’s in ‘His Wisdom’, #78:

Fairness is everyplace.

One may commit every outrage, but he still has a sense of fairness. It may be blunted, but it still exists. There are people who are immediately sensitive to all unfairness.

Others do not sense it until after they have committed some wrong.

Still others feel no remorse until they have committed serious crimes.

But each man has his limit. There is a degree of outrage that stimulates the sense of fairness in every man.

====

I was once in a small village.

A military officer had come there demanding all the horses, saying they were needed to carry mail. The villagers bribed him to leave them in peace. They kept their horses and the officer had some easy money.

Soon one of his junior officers arrived. The commander convinced him that he should also try this trick. The second officer went to the townsmen again, also demanding horses for the mail. He was also bribed and walked away with a tidy sum.

A third officer then passed through the town.

He was really in charge of the mail and was short several animals. He actually needed the horses and would not be satisfied with a bribe.

The mayor went and pleaded before the commander. The people had already paid two bribes but would still have their horses taken.

====

At this point, even the commander recognised the unfairness of the situation.

He ordered the mail officer to leave the townsmen alone, and the horses were not taken.

This same commander had already robbed the villagers without qualm.

He had even advised his junior to do the same.

It took two crimes before his sense of fairness could even begin to function.

But by the third time, even he realised that the situation was hardly fair. It was then that he ordered that the town be left alone.

For fairness exists everywhere.

It may be buried, but it can always be reached….

====

…..The right side is fairness.

It even exists on the Other Side.

But on the other side righteousness and fairness begin very late, even after the fairness of the left of the Holy.

Understand this.

====

Ad kan, from Rabbenu.

I think maybe, just maybe, we’ve reached that spot where the ‘fairness on the left’ is starting to wake up.

I see headlines like this, about one of the police officers in the Ahuvya Sandek manslaughter case finally being arrested:

https://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/294618

And like this, where Netanyahu bizarrely confirmed he’s turned Israel into a giant human experiment for big Pharma:

https://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/294594

And also like this, where they are strangely admitting that a 23 year old young man in Israel is in hospital with life-threatening organ inflammation due to the COVID 19 ‘vaccine’ he got just 24 hours earlier:

“Rare life-threatening multi-system inflammatory syndrome (MIS) following BNT162b2 mRNA covid-19 vaccination in a 23 y old social worker was identified at our Department of Medicine B at Hadassah Medical Center, Jerusalem, Israel and reported to MOH and WHO.”

====

And a part of me thinks that maybe, there’s finally some light at the end of the tunnel.

I really hope so.

UPDATE #2:

I put this together, to print off and stick on the fridge, so we can all remember what the 10 verses of Tehillim the Rav has introduced for people to say at least once a week.

These don’t replace the Tikkun Haklali.

Keep saying the Tikkun Haklali, too, but the Rav has said it’s a very good thing, and will bring blessings into a person’s life, to recite this series of 10 Psalms at least once a week.

Here you go:

Sometimes, I have a lot of sympathy for the Prophet Yonah.

Poor guy.

He really wanted to run away from all his heavy, ‘negative’ nevuot, and to just go sit on an island somewhere and strum his new acoustic guitar to an Ed Sheeran song.

But God didn’t let him.

God, leave me alone!!! I hate all this dark, heavy stuff, and I don’t want to be the bearer of bad news, and I don’t want to get involved in all the convoluted politics and ‘uck’ of this world!!!

But that was the job that God gave Yonah, and like it or not, that’s the job he had to do.

====

Just now, I was doing some hitbodedut in the garden, pulling out some big weeds and stinging nettles before they get a chance to root too deeply, and become entrenched.

Strange to say, I just love pulling things out by their roots.

I’m weird like that.

So, as I’m sitting and pulling and praying and pulling, God sent me the idea that I really need to start writing about all this fake Jewish history stuff again.

And I immediately started arguing.

God, leave me alone!! It’s so ucky, it’s so heavy, it’s so charged and fraught and difficult…. I really, really don’t want to do it.

In the silence that followed, I got this answer back:

That’s exactly why you are the best person for the job.

====

Sigh.

What can I tell you?

Don’t I know, just how hard this is for all of us, you and me both? Don’t I know just how much trauma and anxiety this whole ‘unravelling’ process is causing us all?

Yes, I do.

That’s why I’ve been doing my best to run away from it all the last week and a half, and to do something more productive, like playing the guitar like a rockstar.

But God isn’t let me off the hook.

====

So, let’s start here, with a discussion I’ve been having with one of my non-Jewish readers on email, who gave permission for me to share it more widely, while I get my ducks in a row for the rest of the stuff I need to go back to researching and sharing with you.

And is has to do with something she called ‘The Ger Suggya’ – or in other words, what is the role of the ‘righteous gentile’ when Moshiach comes.

Let me spoil the anticipation by telling you straight off the bat that I don’t know.

But I think that the discussion and the idea is very important to at least have up on our radar, and so I’m bringing an abridged version of her comments, below, to get those wheels turning in the meantime.

====

UPDATE:

J asked me to delete our email exchange, so in deference to her wishes, I’ve done that.
I’m still considering what to do with the comments, and I’d appreciate feedback from you, dear reader – and particularly Netanel Simcha, who put a tremendous amount of time and effort into his response, about what you’d like me to do with those, going forward.

Please let me know in the comments, if you’d like me to keep the comments up, or delete them too.

In the process of updating the last post, I started researching ‘The Elijah Institute’.

I’m leaving those updates in their original place, too, for context, but the more I’m looking at it, the more important information I’m finding. So, I decided to also make those updates into their own post, and to ‘update’ that, here.

Here’s where we got to, so far:

====

Putin has his very own Chabad rabbi, too, called affectionately Berel Lazar.

Putin really likes R’ Berel. This from Wikipedia:

In 2004, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed an edict to honor him with the Order of Friendship. This award was presented for the contribution made by Rabbi Lazar to developing culture and strengthening friendship between nations within Russia.

In December 2004, he was honored with a national public award, the ‘Minin and Pozharsky’ Order “for his great personal contribution to strengthening the moral and cultural fabric of the Russian State and for reviving spiritual life and religious freedom in the country”.

In June 2005, he was awarded the Medal “60 Years of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War 1941-1945”. He received the medal during the 19th session of the Russian ‘Pobeda’ (Victory) Organizational Committee.

In September 2005, he received the ‘Peter the Great’ First Class Order. The diploma attached to the Order explains that the Chief Rabbi was honored with this award “considering his activities in advancing inter-ethnic and inter-religious relations, and his great contribution to the spiritual rebirth of Russia’s Jewish community and to strengthening Russian state”

It should also be noted that:

Rabbi Lazar is an advocate of interfaith dialogue and sits on the Board of World Religious Leaders for The Elijah Interfaith Institute.

====

UPDATE:

First, just to make it clear:

There are loads and loads of tremendously good people who are part of the Chabad movement.

I’m writing here about the institution, and it’s corrupt leaders, not about the many good Jews who mamash have poured their heart and soul into trying to serve Hashem, and the Jewish people the best way they can.

I’ve come to see this kind of like the IDF, or the State of Israel.

The institutions and the leadership and the ideology are corrupt.

Most of the people within it, tho, like the seeds in a pomegranate, are good and holy.

And also, being kept in the dark about what’s really going on.

====

That said, there are SO MANY things that we can’t just keep closing our eyes too.

Remember this?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HyI3pYQqdNQ&feature=emb_logo

====

R’ Berel Lazar, Putin’s personal ‘rabbi’ is part of the Elijah Interfaith Institute, as referenced above.

He’s such a big part of all this ‘interfaith’ stuff, he’s even get medals and honors from Putin to reward him for his work in this area.

Here’s a little of what Wiki has to say about it:

Elijah Interfaith Institute is a nonprofit, international, UNESCO-sponsored interfaith organization which was founded by Rabbi Alon Goshen-Gottstein in 1997.

The mission of the Elijah Interfaith Institute, encapsulated in its slogan “Sharing Wisdom, Fostering Peace,” is to foster unity in diversity, creating a harmonious world. Through its various activities, Elijah deepens understanding among religious leaders and scholars, and through them, spreads its vision to their various communities….

Headquartered in Jerusalem, Elijah has offices and representatives in different countries, and holds its activities in multiple international settings.

====

Even more concerning is what you find on that organisation’s own website, HERE:

The Elijah Board of World Religious Leaders is unique in mission and scope. It brings together an unparalleled group of religious leaders from all over the world in a profound exchange of ideas that leads to deep engagement with each and spiritual friendship between participants.

This paves the way for transformation within religions and their teachings.

====

Emphasis mine.

Given that Frankism was all about ‘transforming’ the Jewish religion from within, God forbid, and melding Judaism with the other religions to create a ‘one world religion’ loosely based on Catholicism, the ‘accepted’ religion that Frank felt was most akin to, and useful, as a cloak for his own warped antinomianism, this statement rings an alarming bell for me.

What is the Chabad chief rabbi of Russia, Putin’s right-hand man, doing in such a organisation?

Why ARE Chabad rabbis at home in the Vatican, and dancing for the Pope?

How is all this connected?

I’m happy to post up alternate views, as you can see from the liberal policy I have in the comments’ section, but one way or another, the truth has to come out.

====

UPDATE 2:

The founder of The Elijah Institute, Alon Goshen-Gottstein (who is also deeply connected to the State of Israel, and its corrupt institutions), wrote a book called The Jewish Encounter with Hinduism.

Here’s a little of what he says (on page 47):

[H]istory, ideological perspective, and halachic normativity come together in complex ways.

Their permutations allow us to suggest a hard core of what would constitute Judaism and what is the theological platform from which it can be described.

But this hard core is matched by some soft periphery. Should Sabbateanism and Frankism be described as Judaism? And what of early Israelite religion? And what of the Karaites and Samaritans, etc. etc.?

Probably the most challenging issues arise when we explore Christianity, primarily early Christianity, in those terms. The case of early Christianity actually introduces one further criterion into our discussion, that of self-understanding.

In addition to the “objective” criteria of history and halacha and the more ambiguous criterion of religious ideology, we have the purely subjective criterion of self-understanding. Self-understanding constitutes identity, and it plays an important role in the definition of religions, religious communities, and their boundaries.

Contemporary Judaism presents some unresolved challenges revolving around the application of these complicated and, at times, conflicting criteria.

The continuing struggles around the issue of “who is a Jew,” as it applies to the Law of Return in Israel, indicate that definition of a religion and of religious identity are never fully resolved and remain open to continuing debate.

====

Again, make up your own minds about what he’s really hinting at here, but the more you read about Frankist doctrine, the more the alarm bells go off.

====

UPDATE 3:

So, this was what is posted up on the Elijah Institute website HERE, for their last meeting in Jerusalem (note the title):

From Religious to Political Leadership – Monthly Learning and Prayer MeetingElijah Interfaith Institute, in cooperation with Praying Together in Jerusalem, invites you to an interfaith prayer and learning gathering on Thursday November 5 at 6 pm Israel time (11 am EDT).

 

 

 

====

Doesn’t this sound ‘reform’ to you?

Also, take a look at where the Board members of Elijah have been meeting – including in the Archabbey of St. Ottilien – and what they are up to (bolded emphasis mine):

[O]ne moving example, shared by an Israeli rabbi.

This rabbi, who is a prominent voice in Israeli public discourse, is involved in interfaith relations only through Elijah (this is the only forum where he felt there is a depth of discourse that is worthy of his investing his time).

One day he took lunch with the most prominent Hindu representative at the meeting. In the course of lunch, as he later told me, he decided to shift his orientation from that of a colleague sharing opinions to a disciple who seeks the wisdom of the master.

Accordingly, the conversation proceeded with him turning to the Hindu master, requesting his advice on key issues that he experiences as part of his own leadership work.

One of the questions he posed concerned how to bless people who come to him. People frequently ask him for blessings, and he is at a loss how to fulfil their request and what that means in terms of his relationship with them and in terms of his own self-image. The Hindu master responded: When people ask for blessings, I simply pray together with them.

The rabbi found this answer most illuminating and has shared with me how it has helped him in the exercise of his own rabbinical duties. 

====

You got that?

A leading Israeli Rabbi – who I’d just LOVE to know the identity of – is hanging out in Abbeys in Germany, getting advice on religious observance from a Hindu master.

Woe to us.

====

Maybe we can get a clue as to who that rabbi might be from looking at this, from the Elijah Institute’s ‘coronavirus’ page:

====

Apart from the reform / Masorti rabbis, and good ol’ Reb Lazar, we have the following rabbis from Israel:

Rabbi Dov Singer is a noted educator in the religious-Zionist sector in Israel. He heads Yeshivat Mekor Chayim and is a founder of a movement of prayer groups that seek to deepen the experience of prayer.

Rabbi Ephraim Kenig is head of the Hassidic community of Breslav in Safed.

Rabbi Yuval Cherlow is head of the hesder Yeshiva Orot Shaul, head of the Religious and Ethics Center in Jerusalem and a prominent voice in the religious Zionist stream of Judaism.

====

Yuval Cherlow is head of the alt-‘frum’ Tzohar organisation, and popped up across Jewish media last week, to urge ‘limited sanctions‘ on all COVID-1984 vaccine refusers.

And yes, I’m as disappointed and surprised as you are, to see Rabbi Ephraim Kenig on this list, too.

====

But that’s not even the worst of it.

Read on. This comes from that same page:

“Elijah is currently engaged in creating a first of its kind interfaith center, to be based in Jerusalem, to be called the Center of HOPE, acronym for House of Prayer and Education.”

Here’s the plans and the ‘vision‘ for this interfaith centre in Jerusalem:

The new facility will include lecture halls for public lectures and conferences; an auditorium for public events and interreligious concerts; an exhibition hall where interreligious art exhibits can be hosted; meeting spaces for scholars’ seminars, interreligious think tanks, and for all interreligious activity that takes place in and around the cause of Jerusalem and the Holy Land; a museological display featuring the life of prayer in world religions; and inspiring prayer spaces where Jews, Christians, Muslims, and others will pray alongside one another.

====

Uck, uck and double uck.

And then, we learn the Elijah project is teaming up with the John Templeton Foundation, on a project to explore how ‘other religions’ saints’, or ‘religious geniuses’ could be inspiring to people in different traditions.

John Templeton is another very interesting character. Maybe we’ll come back to him another time, as I just tripped down yet another rabbit hole with all this. Take a look at the funding areas the John Templeton Foundation is involved in, and tell me if something doesn’t strike you as a little strange:

  • Science and the big questions
  • Individual freedom and free markets
  • Genetics
  • Voluntary family planning
  • Exceptional cognitive talent and genius
  • Character virtue development

The last time I came across such a strange list of funding interests, it was on the Rothschild‘s website.

Lots more stuff to think about here…. We’ll see where this next clue leads.

====

That’s all the stuff copied over from the last post.

Now, I went back and looked at the ‘fluffy video’ all these organisations like to put out, about all the good work they are doing in the world. (It’s got women in it, so not shnirat eynayim friendly, but here’s the link if that’s not an issue:)

====

The guy with the beard is ‘Rabbi’ Yuval Cherlow, as mentioned above, who believes in people asking questions and thinking for themselves – except when it comes to taking experimental, DNA-changing coronavirus ‘vaccines’.

Then, he believes that people should be coerced and punished for not obeying governmental diktats.

He’s also a big believer in people risking their lives and health by offering to become ‘human guinea pigs’.

Here’s a link to his blog on the Times of Israel (funded by billionaire Seth Klarman, who has joined with the Rothschilds, to fund Israel’s ‘Precision Medicine Partnership‘, where your DNA is harvested and used to create all sorts of things that give me nightmares.)

This is how ‘R’Cherlow’s ‘featured’ blog post begins:

Rabbi, is it OK for me be part of a human vaccine trial?

As long as you know the scientific protocols protecting trial participants are in place, the question is how could you not participate?!
====

How could you not?!

And even if you don’t want to, you will be forced and sanctioned into becoming a human guinea pig, in any case, regardless of the total lack of information being given to anyone about what’s really in this  experimental mRNA-changing ‘vaccine’, and what it’s really doing.

But let’s move on, because that’s not actually what’s so interesting, here.

Here’s a screenshot from the Elijah Foundation’s ‘puff video’, which shows some of their funders and backers:
====
Here’s who is funding it:
  • The John Templeton Foundation (briefly mentioned above)
  • Rockefeller Brothers Fund
  • UDO Keller Stiftung Forum Humanum
  • Fetzer Institute
  • UNESCO
  • Henry Luce Foundation
  • Guerrand-Hermes Foundation for Peace
  • Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching
That’s an interesting list, hey!
Lots and lots of overlap with all the eugenics stuff, and population control stuff, and ‘new world order’ stuff we’ve been covering here, in connection with COVID-1984.

Let’s see what else we can learn about why these organisations are throwing so much cash at The Elijah Foundation.

====

The Udo Keller Stiftung Forum Humanum was set up by a wealthy German business man named Udo Keller, who passed away in 2012.

I can find very little personal information about him online, but here’s the philosophy guiding his foundation (which is also REALLY interested in funding projects relating to the intersection of AI and humanity, aka ‘transhumanism’):

Inspired above all by the Far Eastern world religions and the mystical traditions of the West, [Keller] came to his very personal answer on the way of a long private study: To the insight that the messages of the great world religions are essentially identical apart from rite and dogma.

Just so you know, that last sentence encapsulates a key part of Frankist / Shabbatean doctrine, that taught that ‘organised religion’ – including the Torah! – was just a ‘garment’ for spirituality that could be discarded.

(This is a distortion of authentic Jewish teachings about what happens AFTER Moshiach comes.)

====

Moving on, let’s take a look at the Fetzer Institute.

You can read their creepy ‘Theory of Change’ document HERE.

Yet again, we have that strange admixture of cutting-edge science and new age ‘spirituality’ that is all about ‘transformation’ and ‘love’ – and creating ‘New Narratives’ that totally dismantle old-fashioned religion, with a lot of help from AI and other things.

If you read the will of the open Frankist (and great-uncle of Justice Louis Dembitz Brandeis…) Gottlieb Wehle, then all of this will sound strangely familiar.

BH, if I have time I will try to transcribe parts of it, so it also gets easier for you to recognise that we are dealing with neo-Frankism here.

And so many of the Elijah Institutes backers have the same sort of weird science /xtianity / new-age spirituality / perhaps Jewish feel to them, I’m beginning to think we’ve stumbled on a number of ‘Frankist descendants’ in real time.

But let’s continue.

====

Do we really need to write more about the Rockefellers Foundation?

Start with this:

https://www.rivkalevy.com/todays-eugenicists-aka-meet-bill-gates/

And then take a look at their website, which states this bizarre message front and centre on the home page:

It was a remarkable year at the RBF that brought to fruition long-term projects, initiatives, and plans that will lay the foundation for our continued efforts and evolution over the next decade and into a new era that has already begun.

====

remarkable year?!

That brought to fruition long-term projects, initiatives and plans?!

Honestly, they aren’t even trying to hide what they are up to, any more.

====

Moving on.

The Henry Luce Foundation is also an interesting addition.

Luce was the son of Presbyterian missionaries in China, and founded Time, Inc (amongst other things.)

He was also an instrumental voice in urging the USA to adopt a ‘global empire’ attitude, as described on Wikipedia:

According to David Harvey, Luce believed “the power conferred [on the USA] was global and universal rather than territorially specific, so Luce preferred to talk of an American century rather than an empire”.

In the same article he called upon United States “to exert upon the world the full impact of our influence, for such purposes as we see fit and by such means as we see fit“.

And that brings us back to the ‘Economic Hit Man’ model of US domination of the third world and all its natural resources, which we talked about HERE.

====

====

Well, the Guerrand-Hermes Foundation for Peace is just about as new age ‘peace n’love’ as it gets.

You can read their ‘Charter for Peace and Forgiveness’ HERE. This is a snippet:

12. We seek cooperation with all interested and like-minded people, organisations, public institutions and the UN System, bearing in mind the interdependence and unity of humanity.

13. We affirm the equal rights and responsibilities of all women and men, as expressed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the proposed Universal Declaration of Human Responsibilities.

They presented this ‘charter’ to the Pope back in 2018:

The charter scroll was presented to His Holiness Pope Francis by Bhai Sahib Mohinder Singh in Rome on 2nd May 2018.

Isn’t it interesting, how the Pope is also in the middle of all this ‘interfaith’ new-age dialogue designed to totally uproot the religion he is purportedly the head of?

====

Lastly, we have the Carnegie Foundation.

Again, they have a long and proud tradition of supporting eugenics, and using ‘ground-breaking science’ and medicine to get rid of anyone they classify as ‘defective’.

Read more HERE, but this is a taster:

As investigative reporter Edwin Black documents in War Against the Weak, eugenics would not “have risen above ignorant rants without the backing of corporate philanthropic largess.”

Mr. Black’s exhaustive and authoritative research turned up mountains of evidence confirming the links between the eugenics movement and our first major philanthropies, including the Carnegie Institution of Washington, the Carnegie Corporation, and the Rockefeller Foundation.

====

Let’s stop there, for now.

There’s a lot to think about.

And a lot more to research.

But something about ‘The Elijah Foundation’ stinks to high heaven.

And I’m willing to bet, it’s connected to all the stuff we’ve been talking about here on the blog, including hidden Frankists in the Jewish community, the Vilna Gaon, eugenics and COVID-1984.

TBC

UPDATE:

If you’d like to see more pictures of apparently orthodox rabbis hanging out in the Vatican – and giving presents, and apparently just loving that little ole’ Pope-y guy to pieces, then a reader sent me a link to this:

https://rabbiscer.org/?s=Pope#!

That’s part of the CRE (Council for European Rabbis) website.

Here’s a little of its history:

The Conference of European Rabbis (CER) is the primary Orthodox rabbinical alliance in Europe. It unites more than 700 religious leaders of the mainstream synagogue communities in Europe. It was founded in 1956 on the initiative of British Chief Rabbi Sir Israel Brodie, in order to revive the vanquished Jewish communities on the European mainland. Brodie was supported by the chief rabbi of France, Jacob Kaplan, the chief rabbi of Amsterdam, Aharon Schuster and the British Sephardic spiritual leader, Hacham Gaon.

====

Former British Chief Rabbi Sir Israel Brodie is an interesting character.

Here he is, in his little Freemasons pinny:

“Sir Israel Brodie as Grand Chaplain of the United Grand Lodge of England”

====

There’s lots more to say about this, including the fact that Sir Israel Brodie is apparently also linked to that infamous ‘Broda’ family, I’ve been writing so much about recently.

And of course, there is still the Freemasons / Secret Society side of all the things the Frankist / Sabbateans were up to, to cover, which I’m getting to soon, God willing.

====

That these people want to hang out with the Pope, and with Swami Whathisface in the cathedrals of Benedictine Monks, and want to become talmidim of leading Hindus, and give hugs to the Dalai Lama is totally up to them.

It’s a free world, and free choice is the only reason Hashem made us.

But I have a massive issue about all the secrecy going on here, and the fact that so many of our orthodox rabbis are doing things in the so-called ‘interfaith world’ that make me cringe, spiritually, without even explaining what exactly they are doing there.

Either you believe the Torah is God’s revealed word, or you don’t.

Either you believe that the Jewish people are the guardians of the spiritual truth in the world, or you don’t.

Sure, we can learn and must learn from everyone – that’s the talmudic definition of a wise person.

But this type of fawning interfaith – where rabbis are falling over themselves to glad-hand the Pope!!!! I mean, come on…. – and genuine orthodox Judaism just don’t mix.

So – what are all these apparently ‘orthodox’ rabbis doing there?

Really?

TBC

====

You might also like this article:

I think most people would agree that ‘politics’ and religion shouldn’t mix

In an ideal world, our holy rabbis should be far, far away from ‘politics’, because politics always has, and always will, corrupts the people who deal with it.

That is one of the things that came out loud and very clear from all the research I’ve been doing into what really went on in the Jewish community, over the last few hundred years.

The ‘big rabbis’ who were engaged in trade and business, and who were found strolling around the corridors of power as shadlanim, or ‘go-betweens’, between the state and the Jewish communities, so often became corrupted by their experiences.

As King Solomon wrote, there is nothing new under the sun.

As it was then, so it is today.

====

One of my commentators, Rachel, asked me this:

You seem to be zeroing in on Chabad so much write now, but why? They are not among Rav Berland’s persecutors, nor do they hold any political power (at least as far as I can tell).

Is it true?

Is it true that Chabad ‘don’t hold any political power’?

Let’s peel back the covers, take a look, and then make up your own minds.

====

Exhibit 1: The Rebbe’s blessing to Netanyahu

This video comes from April 19, 1988, when a newly-elected MK called Benjamin Netanyahu comes to visit the Rebbe, at 770:

====

Here’s a little of what they say (but I highly recommend you watch it yourself, to see how deferential Bibi is towards the Rebbe.)

Rebbe: I had much satisfaction from your first speech.

Bibi: I heard and saw your message.

Rebbe: May you continue in this path. God helps all those who wish to elevate others. How much more so when one begins with himself. Please don’t hold it against me for speaking about this in public.

Bibi: I intend to continue precisely on this path. I’ve heard the Rebbe’s message well.

Rebbe: It is the best path to avoid war, etc. “With tranquility and restfulness shall you be saved.” Blessing and success.

Bibi: I thank you for the opportunities to be helped by you, and to receive the spiritual guidance you provide not just for me, but for all Jews.

Rebbe: I am just starting my work.

Bibi: I know.

Rebbe: You are also just starting your new role.

Bibi: I have come to you at the start and I intend to return to you many times.

Rebbe: You will have to struggle with 119 others in the Knesset. Surely, you won’t be intimidated. Because God is on this side. Blessing and success with God’s mission.

====

This selfsame Bibi Netanyahu has been behind the ongoing persecution of Rav Berland over the last 7-8 years, which is continuing right now.

The hearing that would see the Rav freed has been pushed off AGAIN, until December 27, 2020, because the State of Israel is trying to kill him in prison.

In the meantime, people who have seen the Rav recently say that he is so emaciated he resembles an concentration camp inmate (God forbid!!!), and has even been refused basic medical treatment for things like a broken hand.

Also, we see that Bibi truly is battling against 119 other members of the Knesset now, to hang on to his position of power, callously lockdown the economy and shove vaccines down everyone’s throats at the bidding of his masters behind the scenes.

So, why did the Rebbe give him a blessing to ‘not be intimidated’ and to continue on to the bitter end?

Did the Rebbe not know about the whole COVID-1984 scamdemic that Bibi is totally complicit with?

Could he not ‘foresee’ the persecution of Rav Berland, that again, Bibi and his corrupt government has been the driving force behind for coming on for a decade, already?

While you’re pondering these questions, let’s continue.

====

Exhibit 2: The 1996 Israeli Election

The first time Netanyahu became PM of Israel, he was pitched against the odious Shimon Peres, but was trailing badly.

At that point, a Chabad multi-millionaire called Joseph Gutnick – who the Rebbe had appointed as his “Special Emissary for the Integrity of the Land of Israel” – stepped in to spend a few million dollars on a campaign to get Bibi elected, under the slogan: “Bibi is good for the Jews.”

The propaganda push worked, and Bibi was duly elected.

Thanks directly to Chabad intervention in Israeli politics.

In case you think that is ancient history, here’s the headline from a Jpost story that ran in July, 2018:

Gutnick has told ‘The Jerusalem Post’ exclusively that he has chosen his candidate to succeed Netanyahu whenever he leaves office: Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked.

Seeing as his last ‘chosen candidate’ is still running the country (into the ground….) almost 25 years after Gutnick first boosted him into the PM’s office, we should take this statement seriously.

Let’s move on, because Chabad isn’t just a major power broker in Israeli politics.

That same pattern is being repeated in corridors of power all over the world.

====

Exhibit 3: Chabad Houses as the ‘back door’ to the Trump White House

Back in April 2017, the news site Politico ran a story about how Chabad was the ‘back door’ between Trump and Russia. Here’s how the story starts, but I highly recommend that you read the whole thing with an open mind:

Chabad of Port Washington, a Jewish community center on Long Island’s Manhasset Bay, sits in a squat brick edifice across from a Shell gas station and a strip mall. The center is an unexceptional building on an unexceptional street, save for one thing: Some of the shortest routes between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin run straight through it.

With all the hysterical ‘anti Trump’ propaganda going on, many of us didn’t want to believe ANY of the things that the other side was throwing at Trump, so this story basically was ignored when it came out.

But last year, when I started researching Trump more in depth, I found one hard fact after another that linked him and his real estate projects to ‘hot’ money coming out of the former Soviet Union.

Many of Trump’s projects were financed by Russian and Eastern European oligarchs with very dodgy reputations, many of whom are Jewish, many of whom are mafia, and many of whom are connected to Chabad (and also, to the State of Israel), in one way or another.

They bought apartments in ‘Trump Towers’ and other Trump developments at massively inflated prices, to launder their cash.

====

No-one wants to really touch the ‘Jewish dimension’ to this story too much, for fear of being called an anti-semite.

But we all want that ‘world of truth’ to be revealed, don’t we? When all this tangled web becomes unpicked, and the world of lies can finally fall….

So, let’s continue exploring the ‘political dimension’ to Chabad.

====

EXHIBIT 4: THE BILLION DOLLAR BUDGET

Let’s return to the Chabad House of Port Washington for a moment.

In this article, you can read how Trump’s Soho project was linked to three ‘interesting’ characters, including Felix Sater, Tevfik Arif and Tamir Sapir. I’m not going to tell why these people are ‘interesting’ – go read the piece, if you want to know.

Here’s the bit I want to quote:

“[A]ll these men have connections to the Chabad movement. Felix Sater was honored as Man of the Year in 2014 by the Port Washington Chabad house. The same Chabad house’s website lists Tevfik Arif, who is not Jewish, “among its top 13 benefactors.”

====

Here’s a bit more about Felix Sater:

Sater sued for alleged money-laundering

====

 

And here’s a video of Felix been given his ‘Man of the Year’ award.

It makes very interesting listening (just give it the first two minutes, you’ll see what I’m talking about. And if you can’t be bothered to hear it, then at least read the comments underneath):

====

====

OK, so Jews, even bad Jews, still like to give charity, I get that.

But please tell me something:

Why would a non-Jew with alleged Russian mafia ties like Tevfik Arif be donating millions of dollars to Chabad?

What is he getting back in return?

Here’s one possible answer to that question:

Menachem Friedman the co-author with Samuel Heilman of “The Rebbe: The Life and Afterlife of Menachem Mendel Schneerson”…says:

“Chabad definitely functions as a business network…

Tzivin [a lawyer connected to Chabad] angrily refutes this, saying, “Chabad does not sell connections for money. Chabad emissaries do not use the argument of connections to get money.

While you are pondering why non-Jewish businessmen with (alleged) pronounced links to the mafia are happy to donate millions for Jewish outreach, here’s a few more things for you to consider.

====

Back in October 2019, Trump ally Rudy Giuliani hit the headlines in connection to another Ukrainian money laundering case.

The two ‘wide boys’ with Rudy are Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, who were indicted last year on campaign finance charges connected with trying to remove Marie Yovanovitch, the U.S.A’s former ambassador to Ukraine, from her post last year.

The trio are giving a ‘shout out’ to Ukrainian Chief Rabbi and Chabad-nik, Moshe Azman:

====

====

Here’s a little more about R’ Moshe Azman:

Since assuming the title of chief rabbi of Ukraine last fall [2005], Moshe Reuven Azman has hosted Ukraine’s president, helped negotiate American-Ukrainian trade deals and invited Israeli soldiers to his Kiev synagogue.

====

Meanwhile, Putin has his very own Chabad rabbi, too, called affectionately Berel Lazar.

Putin really likes R’ Berel. This from Wikipedia:

In 2004, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed an edict to honor him with the Order of Friendship. This award was presented for the contribution made by Rabbi Lazar to developing culture and strengthening friendship between nations within Russia.

In December 2004, he was honored with a national public award, the ‘Minin and Pozharsky’ Order “for his great personal contribution to strengthening the moral and cultural fabric of the Russian State and for reviving spiritual life and religious freedom in the country”.

In June 2005, he was awarded the Medal “60 Years of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War 1941-1945”. He received the medal during the 19th session of the Russian ‘Pobeda’ (Victory) Organizational Committee.

In September 2005, he received the ‘Peter the Great’ First Class Order. The diploma attached to the Order explains that the Chief Rabbi was honored with this award “considering his activities in advancing inter-ethnic and inter-religious relations, and his great contribution to the spiritual rebirth of Russia’s Jewish community and to strengthening Russian state”

It should also be noted that:

Rabbi Lazar is an advocate of interfaith dialogue and sits on the Board of World Religious Leaders for The Elijah Interfaith Institute.

====

I could go on and on and on about the very close ties between Chabad and leading politicians and businessmen in every corner of the globe.

 

Here’s a few more interesting headlines, to show that Chabad like the Democrats just as much as the Republicans, and Shimon Peres just as much as Bibi Netanyahu, and then we’ll conclude:

====

Chabad honors Alan Dershowitz at 770

Famed defense attorney Alan Dershowitz honored at 770 with Torah scroll written in his name, following aid in Shalom Rubashkin case.

====

Chabad’s ties with the late Shimon Peres – also known for his hatred of religious Jews and Torah – also go way, way back:

====

The above comes from THIS article on the Chabad website, which seems almost delusional to me, in its description of Peres’ commitment to Judaism.

But don’t take my word for it, read it for yourself and make up your own mind.

It just strikes me as so interesting, how the Rebbe, and Chabad, have been so intimately involved with all these politicians in Israel (and elsewhere) whilst still claiming they are totally uninvolved in politics.

Here’s another interesting article, this time about how Rabin meets the Rebbe in 770, and then the very next year becomes a MK, and shortly after that, another leading force in Israeli politics:

https://www.chabad.org/therebbe/article_cdo/aid/523714/jewish/The-Rebbe-and-Rabin.htm

====

To conclude.

Chabad is the most unabashedly ‘politically connected’ Jewish organisation in the world.

Chabad shlichim continue to pop up next to the Pope, and next to Putin, and next to Trump, and seem to be closely connected to so many of the world’s biggest business men and oligarchs, Jewish and otherwise.

I don’t have a single doubt that if the Chabad leadership so willed it, they could exert enough pressure domestically and internationally to get Rabbi Eliezer Berland out of prison in a heart beat.

Clearly, they don’t want to do that.

So then the question is this:

Why not?

====

UPDATE:

First, just to make it clear:

There are loads and loads of tremendously good people who are part of the Chabad movement.

I’m writing here about the institution, and it’s corrupt leaders, not about the many good Jews who mamash have poured their heart and soul into trying to serve Hashem, and the Jewish people the best way they can.

I’ve come to see this kind of like the IDF, or the State of Israel.

The institutions and the leadership and the ideology are corrupt.

Most of the people within it, tho, like the seeds in a pomegranate, are good and holy.

And also, being kept in the dark about what’s really going on.

====

That said, there are SO MANY things that we can’t just keep closing our eyes too.

Remember this?

====

R’ Berel Lazar, Putin’s personal ‘rabbi’ is part of the Elijah Interfaith Institute, as referenced above.

He’s such a big part of all this ‘interfaith’ stuff, he’s even get medals and honors from Putin to reward him for his work in this area.

Here’s a little of what Wiki has to say about it:

Elijah Interfaith Institute is a nonprofit, international, UNESCO-sponsored interfaith organization which was founded by Rabbi Alon Goshen-Gottstein in 1997.

The mission of the Elijah Interfaith Institute, encapsulated in its slogan “Sharing Wisdom, Fostering Peace,” is to foster unity in diversity, creating a harmonious world. Through its various activities, Elijah deepens understanding among religious leaders and scholars, and through them, spreads its vision to their various communities….

Headquartered in Jerusalem, Elijah has offices and representatives in different countries, and holds its activities in multiple international settings.

====

Even more concerning is what you find on that organisation’s own website, HERE:

The Elijah Board of World Religious Leaders is unique in mission and scope. It brings together an unparalleled group of religious leaders from all over the world in a profound exchange of ideas that leads to deep engagement with each and spiritual friendship between participants.

This paves the way for transformation within religions and their teachings.

====

Emphasis mine.

Given that Frankism was all about ‘transforming’ the Jewish religion from within, God forbid, and melding Judaism with the other religions to create a ‘one world religion’ loosely based on Catholicism, the ‘accepted’ religion that Frank felt was most akin to, and useful, as a cloak for his own warped antinomianism, this statement rings an alarming bell for me.

What is the Chabad chief rabbi of Russia, Putin’s right-hand man, doing in such a organisation?

Why ARE Chabad rabbis at home in the Vatican, and dancing for the Pope?

How is all this connected?

I’m happy to post up alternate views, as you can see from the liberal policy I have in the comments’ section, but one way or another, the truth has to come out.

====

UPDATE 2:

The founder of The Elijah Institute, Alon Goshen-Gottstein (who is also deeply connected to the State of Israel, and its corrupt institutions), wrote a book called The Jewish Encounter with Hinduism.

Here’s a little of what he says (on page 47):

[H]istory, ideological perspective, and halachic normativity come together in complex ways.

Their permutations allow us to suggest a hard core of what would constitute Judaism and what is the theological platform from which it can be described.

But this hard core is matched by some soft periphery. Should Sabbateanism and Frankism be described as Judaism? And what of early Israelite religion? And what of the Karaites and Samaritans, etc. etc.?

Probably the most challenging issues arise when we explore Christianity, primarily early Christianity, in those terms. The case of early Christianity actually introduces one further criterion into our discussion, that of self-understanding.

In addition to the “objective” criteria of history and halacha and the more ambiguous criterion of religious ideology, we have the purely subjective criterion of self-understanding. Self-understanding constitutes identity, and it plays an important role in the definition of religions, religious communities, and their boundaries.

Contemporary Judaism presents some unresolved challenges revolving around the application of these complicated and, at times, conflicting criteria.

The continuing struggles around the issue of “who is a Jew,” as it applies to the Law of Return in Israel, indicate that definition of a religion and of religious identity are never fully resolved and remain open to continuing debate.

====

Again, make up your own minds about what he’s really hinting at here, but the more you read about Frankist doctrine, the more the alarm bells go off.

====

UPDATE 3:

So, this was what is posted up on the Elijah Institute website HERE, for their last meeting in Jerusalem (note the title):

From Religious to Political Leadership – Monthly Learning and Prayer Meeting

Elijah Interfaith Institute, in cooperation with Praying Together in Jerusalem, invites you to an interfaith prayer and learning gathering on Thursday November 5 at 6 pm Israel time (11 am EDT).

 

 

 

====

Doesn’t this sound ‘reform’ to you?

Also, take a look at where the Board members of Elijah have been meeting – including in the Archabbey of St. Ottilien – and what they are up to (bolded emphasis mine):

[O]ne moving example, shared by an Israeli rabbi.

This rabbi, who is a prominent voice in Israeli public discourse, is involved in interfaith relations only through Elijah (this is the only forum where he felt there is a depth of discourse that is worthy of his investing his time).

One day he took lunch with the most prominent Hindu representative at the meeting. In the course of lunch, as he later told me, he decided to shift his orientation from that of a colleague sharing opinions to a disciple who seeks the wisdom of the master.

Accordingly, the conversation proceeded with him turning to the Hindu master, requesting his advice on key issues that he experiences as part of his own leadership work.

One of the questions he posed concerned how to bless people who come to him. People frequently ask him for blessings, and he is at a loss how to fulfil their request and what that means in terms of his relationship with them and in terms of his own self-image. The Hindu master responded: When people ask for blessings, I simply pray together with them.

The rabbi found this answer most illuminating and has shared with me how it has helped him in the exercise of his own rabbinical duties. 

====

You got that?

A leading Israeli Rabbi – who I’d just LOVE to know the identity of – is hanging out in Abbeys in Germany, getting advice on religious observance from a Hindu master.

Woe to us.

====

Maybe we can get a clue as to who that rabbi might be from looking at this, from the Elijah Institute’s ‘coronavirus’ page:

====

Apart from the reform / Masorti rabbis, and good ol’ Reb Lazar, we have the following rabbis from Israel:

Rabbi Dov Singer is a noted educator in the religious-Zionist sector in Israel. He heads Yeshivat Mekor Chayim and is a founder of a movement of prayer groups that seek to deepen the experience of prayer.

Rabbi Ephraim Kenig is head of the Hassidic community of Breslav in Safed.

Rabbi Yuval Cherlow is head of the hesder Yeshiva Orot Shaul, head of the Religious and Ethics Center in Jerusalem and a prominent voice in the religious Zionist stream of Judaism.

====

Yuval Cherlow is head of the alt-‘frum’ Tzohar organisation, and popped up across Jewish media last week, to urge ‘limited sanctions‘ on all COVID-1984 vaccine refusers.

And yes, I’m as disappointed and surprised as you are, to see Rabbi Ephraim Kenig on this list, too.

====

But that’s not even the worst of it.

Read on. This comes from that same page:

“Elijah is currently engaged in creating a first of its kind interfaith center, to be based in Jerusalem, to be called the Center of HOPE, acronym for House of Prayer and Education.”

Here’s the plans and the ‘vision‘ for this interfaith centre in Jerusalem:

The new facility will include lecture halls for public lectures and conferences; an auditorium for public events and interreligious concerts; an exhibition hall where interreligious art exhibits can be hosted; meeting spaces for scholars’ seminars, interreligious think tanks, and for all interreligious activity that takes place in and around the cause of Jerusalem and the Holy Land; a museological display featuring the life of prayer in world religions; and inspiring prayer spaces where Jews, Christians, Muslims, and others will pray alongside one another.

====

Uck, uck and double uck.

And then, we learn the Elijah project is teaming up with the John Templeton Foundation, on a project to explore how ‘other religions’ saints’, or ‘religious geniuses’ could be inspiring to people in different traditions.

John Templeton is another very interesting character. Maybe we’ll come back to him another time, as I just tripped down yet another rabbit hole with all this. Take a look at the funding areas the John Templeton Foundation is involved in, and tell me if something doesn’t strike you as a little strange:

  • Science and the big questions
  • Individual freedom and free markets
  • Genetics
  • Voluntary family planning
  • Exceptional cognitive talent and genius
  • Character virtue development

The last time I came across such a strange list of funding interests, it was on the Rothschild‘s website.

Lots more stuff to think about here…. We’ll see where this next clue leads.

====

But, we come back to this:

Why are Chabad – and other apparently ‘orthodox’ rabbis – in the middle of all this interfaith stuff?

And how is all this connected to Coronavirus, the Vilna Gaon, and the ongoing struggle to ‘drain the swamp’?

TBC

====

My husband, God bless him, is my harshest critic.

Before I write stuff here, especially ‘controversial’ stuff, I usually discuss it with him first – and his first tendency is to take everything apart, and to believe nothing.

Over the years, this has caused not a few arguments, but increasingly – and especially when I’m dealing with such high-level things as I’m currently writing about – I’ve come to appreciate this trait of his. He’s a lawyer, and he’s very good at picking my arguments apart.

That’s useful, because once all this stuff has passed muster at home, I know it’s 99% bullet-proof, and then I can write about it publically.

====

One of the things he asked me yesterday is ‘how can I claim genealogies are being faked and manipulated on geni.com’?

It’s a good question, and here’s the answer.

====

Let’s start with a conversation I had with someone who is directly related to some ‘big rabbis’, but off the grid of the official history. When this person put up their family details a few years ago, they were contacted by 2 of the (at least…) 3 people who I believe are ‘gatekeepers’ on geni, paid to divert the truth off into convenient ‘false narratives’.

One was called Malka Mysels, and the other Yigal Burnstein.

There is also a third ‘geni gatekeeper’ who pops up again and again in the most unexpected places, called Keith Hanit.

Long story short, my correspondent came to feel increasingly uncomfortable about the information they had posted up about their family history.

After a short period of time, they decided the safest and best course of action for their family would be to just delete their whole profile – which was challenging the ‘official narrative’ – and come off geni.

I am 100% sure there are many more people out there who have had exactly the same experience.

How can I be so sure?

Read on.

====

When I started researching the ancestry of ‘Benjamin Broda’, son of the Eshel Avraham Avraham Broda / Rovigo and alias of Benjamin Rivlin of Shklov, the secret Frankist ‘tzaddik’ who remained in the Jewish community, I stumbled across the following interesting discussion on geni, from July 2020:

https://admin.geni.com/discussions/216349

Here’s the potted version of it, but I highly recommend you click through and read it for yourself, to see how the manipulation of geni is working in real time.

Someone called Lee David Jaffe started a discussion underneath the profile for ‘Benjamin Braude, ABD Grodno’ about his great grandmother, a woman called “Slawa Brodowicz (1800?-1847)“. Here’s a short version of what he was asking:

====

I’m the 3rd great-grandson of Slawa Brodowicz (1800?-1847) and I’m looking for corroboration about her parents. I’ve found many entries for her in JRI-Poland records, mostly the births and marriages of her nine children, but only one includes her maiden name Brodowicz. Otherwise, I haven’t found any documentation that indicates the names of her father and mother.

There are more that 2 dozen family trees that include Slawa in various genealogy sites. Most indicate her father was Benyamin Broda (spelled variously) 1745-1818 and her mother was Rachel Mayer b. 1760….

Other trees report that Slawa’s father was Ick (Icko or Isaac) Brodowicz (1775-1840). JRI-Poland includes a record for Ick’s death in 1840 in Wiżajny, Suwalki, where Slawa lived. Ick’s parents were Abram and Hydyna…

====

Rachel Mayer has been identified in other places as the daughter of Rivka Shoshana Jacob, one of the (hidden….) daughters of Jacob Frank, and his first wife Chana Josefa Falk, the daughter of the ‘bad’ Baal Shem of London, who I wrote about HERE.

Jacob Frank had these 6 daughters before he ‘came out’ publically as the leader of the Sabbateans in Podolia that later morphed into full-on Frankism. Many of them married big Torah scholars in the Jewish community, and trying to track down their descendants is proving a really tricky job.

For example, if it can be proven beyond a doubt that Rachel Mayer, grand-daughter of Jacob Frank, married Binyamin Broda, and that Binyamin Broda’s daughter Leah Golda became the mother of the 4th Lubavitch Rebbe…

Well.

You can see why that might cause some problems.

====

So, let’s go back to that discussion about ‘Slawa Brodowicz’ – the purported sister of ‘Leah Golda’ and Chaim Broda.

====

One of the ways that people are ‘hidden’ on geni is that instead of giving a specific name for them, they are referred to as ‘wife of so-and-so’, etc.

If you look at the above profile for Benjamin Braude (aka Binyamin Rivlin), you’ll notice that no names are given for either of his two wives.

This is not an accident, or because they don’t know who these people are.

Again, we are dealing with the ‘leading lights’ of the Jewish community who intermarried with other ‘illustrious dynasties’ and wrote big books about their yichus.

The names are missing in all these crucial places, because the names would start to make connections that a lot of people don’t want.

Like, for example, potentially connecting ‘Benjamin Braude, ABD of Grodno’ with Jacob Frank.

====

So, back we go to the discussion with the poor Lee Jaffe, ggggg grandson of ‘Slawa Brodowicz’.

All of a sudden, a bunch of outsiders – including Keith Lawrence Hanit – have shown up, and have taken control of the information he’s trying to add into the ‘big picture’ about Benjamin Braude’s marriage and descendants. Here’s a little of what Lee is complaining about:

“I am sure that 3-4 days ago, R’ Benjamin Braude, A.B.D. Grodno was listed as the father of Slawa Ludwinowska and the husband of Rachel Broide/ Margoliot. I would not have begun this discussion under Benjamin otherwise.

As said, I’m new to Geni and I don’t now who Kevin, Samuel or Dimitri are or why they have taken a role, but someone has made changes that don’t make sense. I’m not interested in engaging in this discussion any further if this is the way this goes.”

====

Poor guy.

One of these ‘geni experts’ then lays into him, for questioning why they are trying to deliberately cover up the new information, like this:

“I trust that you and Mel Werbach are researching this properly and have put in a lot more effort and time than I have or plan on doing.

It does seem however that the issue of Slawa has led us into another mess which I’ve begun trying to fix. She had been attached to R’ Benjamin Braude, A.B.D. Grodno and he had been merged into Reb Sender/Alexander Ephraim Leb Broide/ Margoliot. I believe that merge was done based on https://zohariststories.blogspot.com/2019/09/sheklov-hasidim.html which I’m certain is a load of nonsense.”

====

That link to zohariststhories is the blog of Athol Bloomer, descendent of Jacob Frank, and self-identified as a ‘Hebrew Catholic’ i.e., a Frankist.

Again, there is a lot of disinformation on Athol Bloomer’s blog too, but at least some of the information about Frank’s descendants is credible, and I’m standing a lot of it up on it’s own merits, from independent sources that are NOT Athol Bloomer, or linked to him.

As we’ve been discovering on this blog, Jacob Frank’s ancestors AND descendants have all been totally whitewashed out of official Jewish history.

And that process has also occurred for all the other notorious ‘Shabbatean prophets’ like the Eshel Avraham, and Hershel Zoref, and Mordechai Mokaich, and Yonatan Eybshutz, and Nathan of Gaza,, and even, for the descendants of Shabtai Tzvi himself, many of whom also remained within the Jewish community.

====

If you try to click on the family tree that Lee Jaffe put up on ancestry.com, referred to in his comments, you’ll see it’s now gone.

Lee’s last comment on geni was this:

“What I would like is to see some supporting sources for the existing records and the recent changes. Why would Slawa’s record be unlinked as a child or Benjamin and moved to his brother Sender’s offspring? And since we still don’t know anything about Rachel Mayer why would her link as wife of Benjamin also move to Sender? If there is good reason, I’d like to see that info.”

====

They got to him, just like they got to the other person who spoke to me firsthand, about their experience on geni.

====

Here are some other ways the information is being manipulated, concealed and distorted on geni:

====

Above, you’ll find the profile for Rabbi Avraham Kalisker, the head of the the chassidim in Eretz Yisrael who fell out with the Alter Rebbe, Shneur Zalman, after he published the Tanya in 1797. (I wrote about that HERE.)

It took me a week of breaking my head reading through a ton of other sources, and other geni profiles, and other information, to make the links between R’ Avraham Kalisker, Shneur Zalman, the Maggid of Mezritch and the Tzemech Tzedek, Chabad Rebbe #3.

R’ Avraham Kalisker’s profile links to no-one else’s.

No siblings, no real details about his parents, no descendents.

And it’s not because ‘they’ don’t know…. they really DO know.

And they are deliberately hiding the information, because then we’d understand way more about how R’ Avraham Kalisker was linked, genealogically, to Shneur Zalman, and how both were linked to the Vilna Gaon, and how all of them were somehow linked to other people that they have tried to ‘whitewash’ out of official history.

So that’s another way the information is being obscured and distorted.

====

And then, we have things like this going on:

====

This is an ‘alternative’ profile that was put up for Moshe Shneuri, the Alter Rebbe’s youngest son who DEFINITELY converted to Catholicism in 1820.

Elsewhere, he’s identified as a ‘open’ Frankist.

In this profile, Moshe is identified as the SON of ‘Shalom Shachne Altshuler‘ – who we wrote about a lot in the last post, who is meant to have married Shterna Segal – aka, the wife of the Alter Rebbe.

That would possibly identify ‘Shalom Shachne’ as being one and the same as the Alter Rebbe, and link him possibly to being the son of R’ Avraham of Kalisker, and then Menachem Mendel (Chabad #3) would be the Alter Rebbe’s son, not his grandson.

Which would explain why he was raised in his home, and why the leadership passed to him, and NOT to one of the Mitteler Rebbe’s own children.

====

By contrast, in the official history, Shalom Shachne Altshuler is the grandson of the Maggid of Mezritch via his daughter Ruhama, who is meant to have married both R’ Avraham Kalisker, and also ‘Noach Altshuler‘.

According to Chabad, Shalom Shachne marries Shneur Zalman’s daughter Devorah Leah, and their son, Menachem Mendel, becomes the 3rd Chabad Rebbe, the Tzemech Tzedek.

====

Now, I’m not saying that the above profile is correct – there is so much disinformation going on, it’s almost impossible to tell.

What I AM saying is that there is clearly a lot of deliberate disinformation going on about the Chabad family tree, and instead of dealing with that honestly, they are instead going after the people who are posting up ‘dissenting information’ and bullying them to remove it.

On this profile, you’ll see that in big, shouting CAPITAL LETTERS, they have tagged this profile is DUPLICATE, SHOULD BE DELETED.

Most people will see that, and instantly dismiss this profile as erroneous and wrong.

But, I’m not most people.

====

To conclude.

I am seeing the tactics described above on so many of the profiles of so many important Jewish leaders and figures.

This cover-up is stretching across the Jewish world.

Take a look at who is managing the geni profile for the Vilna Gaon:

====

Well, who would have believed it!

It’s our hold friend Kevin Lawrence Hanit, the same guy who popped up to scare off Lee Jaffe, who was trying to connect ‘Benjamin Braude’ to his ggggg grandma Slawa Brodowicz.

What a CO-INC-ID-ENCE.

Here’s another interesting discussion with ‘Kevin’, who is now busying making the Vilna Gaon’s family tree conform to ‘official history’:

“Kevin. By extracting names from Eliyahu’s Branches and inserting them in Geni you may be breaching the copyright held by the publisher Avotaynu.

Furthermore, the book was published nineteen years ago since when I have collected updates which require addition, deletions and amendments which I hope one day to incorporate in my database which hopefully may be made available on the internet in such a way that it cannot be tampered with.”

====

Poor Chaim Freedman (author of ‘Eliyahu’s Branches’).

He stopped updating his site a few years’ ago, despite having a wealth of new DNA information that links people like Benjamin Netanyahu and Israeli President Reuven Rivlin straight to the Vilna Gaon.

My guess is that getting that ‘truth’ out there is currently a pretty dangerous business.

It’s easier to sit on it, than to open that massive Pandora’s box that yours truly somehow was dumb enough to start airing out.

====

Here’s another discussion on geni, where you’ll see how the ‘gatekeepers’ are deliberately keeping things mixed up, over even simple things like where the ‘Vilna Gaon’ was born, and how many wives he had:

There are many errors on GENI in the Gaon’s family. Three wives istead of two, two daughters with the same name Khiena, children who were not children. There are 14 mangaers of the profile – too many cooks spoilt the broth.
Users beware of the material presented here.
See my book “Eliyahu’s Branches, the Descendants of the Vilna Gaon and His Family” (Avotaynu 1997) or contact me, Chaim Freedman.

====

I could go on (and on and on….) with this.

Do the experiment yourself: go look up some of the people I’ve mentioned here, and see how many dead ends you run into, how many ‘duplicate profiles’, how many people seem to be married to 4 wives, how many times ‘Keith Lawrence Hanit’, or ‘Malka Mysels’ pops up to keep things confused and muddled – even on totally random profiles.

It’s got to the stage that when I see their names on a profile, I just KNOW that something is being carefully managed or covered up. And that in itself is also proving useful, going forward.

====

The Jewish nation has a right to know what REALLY happened, concerning so many of our leaders in the past.

Chabad, in particular, has been the main conduit for so much that we have been taught to believe was factual history.

They are the source for the whole ‘dispute’ between the Vilna Gaon and the Alter Rebbe.

They are the source for so much of the history of the Jewish communities in Europe before that, and the stories about the Maharal of Prague and his descendants.

If we can’t trust what they have been telling us, that has implications for every area of modern Jewish life, in particular, what really went on around the creation of the State of Israel, and WHO is really pulling the strings here, behind the scenes.

And of course, let’s not forget there’s another branch of the family – the Rothschilds and Schiffs and the Oppenheimers and the Wertheimers – that also needs to be reintegrated into this mix.

====

I’m coming to the tentative conclusion that ‘Rothschilds and Schiffs’ are also the same family.

And that all this is somehow connected to the Bacharach family, via the known Sabbatean R’ Yair Chaim Bacharach (aka the ‘Chavas Yair’), and R’ Yeshaya Horowitz, aka the ‘Shlah Hakadosh’.

But I can’t figure all this out by myself, and time is running out to ‘unpick history’ so we can move forward into geula the sweet way.

====

I’ll let you know if what I wrote here passed the husband test.

But in the meantime, please help me to figure this out.

It’s important.

Because we really ARE just one big family, and once we’ve internalised that, all the petty squabbling, and all the ‘divide and conquer’ strategies the elitists have been using to keep us at each other’s throats, and so weak, disorganised and far away from God, will disappear.

And we can get geula the sweet way.

====

UPDATE:

I forgot to mention another way the ‘gatekeepers’ are distorting history on geni.

They also give deliberately incorrect birth dates for key individuals – often ranging across almost a century! – which makes it very hard to see who came first, who is the father, who is the son, and then enables them to ‘rub out’ some descendants, while also fabricating others.

Again, so much of this information is extant in the pinchasim of the kehillot, which carefully kept track of births, marriages and deaths, much like the Chief Rabbinate of every country continues to do today. And where those records were lost or destroyed because of tragedies, much of the information has still been stored in non-Jewish sources, much as the civil register of births, deaths and marriages functions today, alongside that of the Jewish community.

Why go to all this trouble?

Because so many of our ‘big families’ were directly and obviously connected to known Sabbateans and Frankists.

(And then later on, these ‘secret’ Sabbateans and Frankists effortlessly morphed into the leading lights of the haskalah and reform and Zionist movements.)

That doesn’t mean every member of those families were necessarily Sabbateans and Frankists, but it DOES mean that we can’t just assume that everyone in the position of a ‘big rabbi’ with ‘good yichus’ was certainly operating from the side of good.

Because that just wasn’t the case.

Let’s continue trying to pry out some historical ‘truth’ from all the lies being told about Jewish history.

In this post, we’re going to return to Moshe Schneerson, the Alter Rebbe’s youngest son, who converted to xtianity.

Let’s see if we can track down some of his descendants in ‘real time’, and let’s see if we can start to broaden out the links between the Rivlin (aka Vilner, aka Broda / Rovigo) family, and Chabad. Along the way, we’ll also start to see how the nascent State of Israel came into being – and who was holding its reins, right from the start.

Ready?

Let’s dive in.

====

In the official history of Chabad, which you can read in Hebrew HERE:

https://www.hebrewbooks.org/pdfpager.aspx?req=30439&st=&pgnum=57

We learn that Moshe, the Alter Rebbe’s youngest son, marries ‘the Rabbanit Shifra, daughter of the famous rabbi, Rabbi Tzvi Hirsch of Ula.’ He apparently lives a very long life, and dies in 1877, in Russia.

In the official Jewish history, Tzvi Hirsch of Ula is the son of Rabbi Eliyahu Rivlin ‘Platkes’, who is the brother of Benjamin Rivlin of Shklov, and also of Mindel Schick.

As we learned in THIS post, Mindel Shick’s grand-daughter, Elke, married the infamous Frankist Moshe Dobrushka, and the whole family converted to the catholic faith.

[There is way more to say about Moshe Dobrushka, but we’ll save that for another post.]

====

In my ‘alternative history’, I’ve set out that:

  • RIVLIN is just an anagram for ‘VILNER’
  • Benjamin Rivlin = Benjamin Broida, the grandson of the Shabbatean prophet Avraham Broida / Rovigo, author of the Eshel Avraham.
  • The 6th Rebbe of Chabad, the Rayatz, sets out himself that ‘Leah Golda, grand-daughter of the Eshel Avraham’ becomes the mother of the 4th Rebbe of Chabad, and that her husband is ‘Moshe of Shklov’.
  • That Moshe Shneuri converted to catholicism in 1820.

Now, let’s see if we can find out what happened to Moshe and Shifra Shneuri (nee Rivlin’s) descendants.

====

According to the official genealogies curated by Chabad, Moshe and Shifra (Rivlin) have just two daughters:

[20] Sarah Rivkah SHNEURSON m. Nachum Yosef SHNEURSOHN

and

[21] Rachael SHNEURSON m. Moshe Tzvi FUNDMINSKY

On the related sites on geni (which I’ve come to the inescapable conclusion are also being ‘curated’ by people trying to suppress the truth) – Nachum Yosef Shneursohn apparently has no parents, siblings, or other relatives.

I’ve learnt that this is a clear sign that the name is made up.

Especially when you’re dealing with people who ‘marry in’ to dynasties that are totally and irrationally obsessed with yichus. And especially when you’re dealing with people who like to marry their close family relatives, as much as possible.

When I try to look for who ‘Moshe Tzvi Fundminsky’ is – I hit the same problem.

He appears out of thin air, with no parents, siblings or trace that this person actually existed, outside of the curated genealogies.

Do a search for both of these people on the internet, and it will come back with NOTHING outside of the Chabad genealogies.

So, I already know that ‘Moshe Tzvi Fundminsky’ and ‘Nachum Yosef Shneurson’ are made up names, alter egos created to hide who these people really were.

====

This is where the principle of ‘cousins marrying cousins’ and ‘uncles marrying nieces’ really starts to be helpful.

BH, I’ve managed to unravel so many bits of hidden history by following this principle, so let’s take a look at who Moshe Shneuri’s grand-children married.

Rachel and Moshe ‘Fundaminsky’ have 5 children listed on Geni:

  • Miriam Mara Segal
  • Devorah Shmerling
  • ‘Unknown daughter’ who marries a ‘Yaakov Moshe Schneerson’
  • Shneur Zalman Fundaminsky (the younger (? – your guess is as good as mine)
  • Rivka Hinda Rivlin

There’s a lot of deliberate disinformation flying around, but that last one, Rivka Hinda Rivlin turns up something useful. According to this Rivlin family tree (which also continues deliberate distortions, upstream) Rivka marries Zalman Hayim Hillel Rivlin in Jerusalem.

Zalman Rivlin is the grandson of Hillel Rivlin of Shklov, the main ‘disciple’ of the Vilna Gaon’s band of Perushim, who came to settle Eretz Yisrael.

Hillel is also the son of Benjamin Rivlin of Shklov / aka Benjamin Broda -the Vilna Gaon’s brother, and the ‘secret Frankist tzaddik’ who stays within the Jewish community.

====

====

Zalman Rivlin is apparently married three times (!) – but again, his other two wives ‘appear out of nothing’.

One of Zalman Rivlin’s brothers is Yosef Yehoshua Rivlin, credited with founding 13 new neighborhoods in Jerusalem. Wikipedia has some interesting info about him, here’s a snippet:

In 1857, Rivlin founded the Bonei Yerushalayim (Builders of Jerusalem) company for the purpose of building neighborhoods outside the Old City walls. He enlisted signatories in the company from among his acquaintances, wealthy relatives in Shklov and Mohilev, and pro-Israel committees in Amsterdam and London, and also traveled to Russia and Europe with his colleagues, Rabbis Yoel Moshe Salomon and Michel Cohen, to promote the plan…

Rivlin was also instrumental in securing an annulment of the Ottomon ban on construction outside the Old City walls, issued in 1844. Sent with Rabbi Benzion Lyon to Constantinople by the rabbis of Jerusalem, Rivlin and Lyon procured an annulment of the firman from the sultan’s secretary, effective 1862.

====

You’ll recall from THIS post that Yoel Moshe Salomon was the descendant of Hershel Tzoref of Vilna, another Shabbatean false prophet.

Let’s recap, before we move on:

  • The Alter Rebbe‘s great-granddaughter via his openly catholic son Moshe marries Zalman Rivlin, the great-grandson of Hillel Rivlin of Shklov – continuing the tradition of these families intermarrying with each other.
  • Hillel Rivlin is the son of Benjamin Rivlin / Broda, the brother of the Vilna Gaon, and the ‘secret Frankist tzaddik‘ that stays within the Jewish community, to subvert it from within.
  • Zalman’s brother, Yosef Yehoshua Rivlin, plays a leading part in ‘building’ Jerusalem, together with the descendant of another Shabbatean Prophet, Yoel Moshe Salomon.

====

There is and was a very profound ‘Shabbetean / Frankist Kabbalah’ component to all this effort being exerted to rebuild Jerusalem, that is also connected to ‘rediscovering the 10 lost tribes’ and to the xtian world.

If you go HERE, you can start to read a little about that for yourselves. I hope to do a much longer post on this soon, but suffice to say that Yosef Rivlin was also a big kabbalist, and also very busy with trying to identify the 10 lost tribes.

This obsession with the 10 lost tribes was also a recurring theme, with all these false Shabbatean prophets, and the xtian groups who were supporting them.

====

Let’s keep going a little, with Zalman and Rivka Hinda’s descendants, because it’s actually quite eye-opening.

Again, Rivka is the grand-daughter of Moshe Schneuri, the Alter Rebbe’s openly catholic son (who was almost certainly a Frankist).

Rivka’s daughter Chaya Rasha marries Rabbi Mordechai Zev Hominer.

The Hominer rabbinic dynasty was one of the pillars of the ultra-orthodox community in Jerusalem (and Eretz Yisrael).

====

Another one of Rivka and Zalman’s daughters, Shifra Bracha, marries Eliyahu Mordechai Eisenstein, the leader of the religious community Jerusalem.

The following piece of golden information comes from the auction site for letters from the Eisenstein family, HERE.

(I’ve bolded the really interesting bits, below.)

====

R. Avraham Eisenstein (1800-1886) was born in Drahichyn, Belarus, and moved to Safed in 1823 together with a large group of disciples of the Gra, including his father-in-law, R. Chaim Cohen, rabbi of Pinsk and Safed.

In 1834 R. Avraham was appointed dayan on the rabbinical court of R. Yisrael of Shklov in Safed.

His entire family perished in the earthquake of 1837 except for one young daughter, upon which he moved to Jerusalem, where he eventually remarried the daughter of R. Aryeh Neeman (Marcus).

His sons R. Eliyahu Mordechai and R. Yerachmiel (who moved to the United States in the 1880s) were born from this marriage.

R. Avraham was among the community leaders of Jerusalem, and served as the director of the Vaad HaKlali (General Fund)….

His son, R. Eliyahu Mordechai Menachem Eisenstein (1867-1957), followed his father’s footsteps as a Torah scholar and community activist. He served the community in various capacities, including treasurer of the “Vaad HaKollelim”, secretary of the General Fund Knesset Yisrael, and other positions.

He also served as the personal secretary of R. Shmuel Salant for a number of years. He married the daughter of R. Zalman Chaim Rivlin (ca. 1832-1902), director of the Vaad HaKlali, and upon her passing, married her sister.

====

So. We’ve just discovered another unknown daughter of Rivka and Zalman Rivlin, called ‘Sara Esther’, who remarried Rabbi Eliyahu Mordechai Menachem Eisenstein when her sister, Shifra Bracha, passes away.

More importantly, we’ve started to uncover how the Lubavitch / Rivlin dynasty underpins large chunks of the ultra-orthodox religious world in Israel, via the Alter Rebbe’s catholic son, Moshe Schneuri.

And this is only tracking down two of Moshe’s descendants.

You would be AMAZED how many of our Jewish leaders, in the chassidic world, in the Litvish world, in the State of Israel, are directly connected to the Alter Rebbe and the Vilna Gaon, who as I set out elsewhere are very probably father and son.

So that makes the question of how closely these individuals were both connected to Shabbatean / Frankist theology, and beliefs, all the more sharp and urgent.

====

POSTSCRIPT:

I was going to stop here for this this post, but then I thought I’d just go and see who Moshe Schneuri’s other daughter, Sarah Rivka, is connected to.

Her son, Schneur Zalman Schneurson, married Toyba Feiga Wolfensohn, the daughter of Dayan Abraham Wolfensohn of Shklov.

He’s another really interesting character. The following comes from Wikipedia (which has way more details, so click and read more, if you’re interested). Again, I’ve bolded the really interesting bits.

====

Rabbi Wolfensohn was born in Shklov, about 300 kilometers southeast of Vilnius in Lithuania, where he became a disciple of the Vilna Gaon, Rabbi Elijah ben Solomon Zalman. 

The Gaon believed that the return of the Jews from the Diaspora to the Land of Israel would bring about the Messianic era. Influenced by the Gaon’s vision, Wolfensohn founded an organization called Chazon Tzion (“Prophecy/Vision [of] Zion”), whose main principles included the ingathering of the Jewish exile.

In 1809, Rabbi Wolfensohn traveled to and settled in the Holy Land as a member of the first of three groups of Gaon disciples….

Included in the groups were members of the Wolfensohn, Ze’ev, Rivlin, Zeitlin and Bassan families—many of the descendants of these disciples became leading figures in modern Israeli society. Their arrival encouraged an Ashkenazi revival in the land which until this time was mostly Sephardi.

Facing an Ottoman ban on Ashkenazi Jews settling in Jerusalem, most of the Perushim, including the Wolfensohn family, settled in Safed, forming the basis of the Ashkenazi community there. Rabbi Wolfensohn became the first judge of the Perushim in Safed and was instrumental in ending the friction between the Ashkenazi and Sephardi communities in the region…

His wife and two of his sons were killed in the great Galilee earthquake of 1837, while Avraham was away in Europe collecting funds for the community.

His son Zeev survived because he was studying at a yeshiva in Jerusalem at the time.

Rabbi Wolfensohn then moved to Jerusalem where he married his second wife, Sheindel, with whom he had four children.

As leaders and members of the Perushim community, Rabbi Wolfensohn and his descendants (Wolfensohn, Woolfson, Wolfson, Ze’ev) had a significant influence both on the history of the Yishuv haYashan and the subsequent State of Israel

====

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

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

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

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

(Joshua Zeitlin’s brother, Eliezer, came to Palestine as part of the delegation of the Perushim.)

So, if the thesis is correct that the Alter Rebbe’s father was really the Vilna Gaon, we are getting closer to pinning down who these people really were, ‘in the real world’.

And once we know that, we’ll have a much better idea how everyone is connected, and why they’ve been trying to hide that information for more than 200 years.

UPDATE:

Hey, just as I was re-reading this post to make sure it formatted OK, I realised that the life stories of R Avraham Eisenstein and R Avraham Wolfensohn are almost identical…. right down to them losing all their family, bar one child, in the Sfat earthquake and being the first ‘dayan’ in Sfat.

I think we just surfaced another big piece of disinformation in real time.

But why would anyone bother to make up a double identity for R Abraham Wolfensohn?

TBC

====

UPDATE 2:

You can see how our current President of Israel, Reuven Rivlin, is directly descended from Benjamin Rivlin, here:

https://www.myheritage.co.il/site-family-tree-459303111/rivlin2017?newTree=

These people weren’t just pulling the strings 200 years ago. They are still pulling the strings today.

So many things have gone ‘wrong’ in the world because we’ve been operating from a false paradigm.

For as long as we remain unaware of what is really going on, and what is really causing our problems, we can’t solve our problems.

As more and more of us are starting to crack up from all the pressure of the last 10 months (plus all the stressful years and events that preceded COVID-1984), the imperative to stop lying to ourselves has gotten stronger and stronger.

If we really want Moshiach and geula, we have to pull our heads out of the sand, and to stop pretending that everything is OK, when it really isn’t. We can’t fix things, we can’t change things, we can’t stop all the suffering going on all around, if we keep on lying to ourselves about what’s really causing the problems.

====

This next post is probably going to be extremely hard for many people to read.

I apologise in advance for that. I know that pulling all this information out into plain view is a tremendously painful process. All I can say is, we have to get to grips with the ‘problem’, and cut that klipa of evil away from the very good, beautiful fruit it still contains.

Just as Rav Kook explained that ‘the State of Israel’ was a shell of evil that contained some tremendously holy, good fruit, so we can say the same about every other organisation, institution and derech in the Jewish world.

There are a lot of ‘shells of evil’ that have covered over so much of the ‘good’ in the Jewish world.

But these shells are fragile and external and superficial.

And the people who have found themselves caught up in them, trapped in them, duped and deceived by them, are for the most part very, very good.

It’s part of the birur process to do this job, and it’s painful.

But at this stage, the operation cannot be postponed any longer, as the patient is in a critical state.

====

So now, let’s continue unpicking the family tree of the Eshel Avraham, Avraham Broda / Rovigo.

Let’s begin with the ‘official genealogy’ of the Alter Rebbe’s family, Schneur Zalman, the first Rebbe of Chabad. This information is taken from the Sefer HaToldos Admur Maharash, written by none other than the Rebbe Rayatz of Lubavitch, the 6th Rebbe.

You can find a translation of that book in English, here:

http://www.sichos-in-english.org/books/sefer-hatoldos-admur-maharash/14.htm

According to the Rebbe Rayatz, Schneur Zalman (1745-1813) married Sterna Segal, the daughter of Yehuda Leib and Bila Segal, in 1760. The couple then had 6 children:

  • Dvora Leah (no dates are given for her birth or death – mother of the Tzemech Tzedek #3)
  • Frieda Schneuri (1765 – 1813)
  • Rachel Schneuri (1765-1844 – no explanation is given for why she shares the same birth year as her sister, Frieda)
  • Dov Baer Shneuri (The Mitteler Rebbe #2), 1773-1826
  • Chaim Avraham Schneurson (1779-1844)
  • Moshe Schneurson (1783-1877)

There are a lot of strange things going on here, but to avoid getting overwhelmed, let’s first stick with trying to track down the descendants of Avraham Broda / Rovigo, the Eshel Avraham.

====

In the ‘official’ Broda family history book written a hundred years ago, that you can read and download here: https://www.hebrewbooks.org/pdfpager.aspx?req=44213&st=&pgnum=28, the author tells us that Binyamin Broda, the Eshel Avraham’s great-grandson (and secret Frankist ‘Tzaddik’ who stayed within the Jewish community) had 4 children:

  • Rav Chaim Broda – author of ‘Zerah Haim’
  • Unnamed daughter #1 who marries R Pinchas ben Yosef of Posner
  • Unnamed daughter #2 who marries R Yehoshua Heshel Ashkenazi
  • Unnamed daughter #3 who becomes ‘the mother of R Shmuel Shneerson of Lubavitch’ (the 4th Lubavitcher Rebbe, the Rebbe Maharash)

====

This is what the Rebbe Rayatz says in his Sefer HaToldos Admur Maharash:

Reb Moshe married a woman of high pedigree, Leah Golda the daughter of Reb Binyamin Broida, a grandson of Reb Avraham Broida, author of Eishel Avraham.[1]…. The saintly Reb Moshe and his wife, the kindly Rebbetzin, had four sons. The fourth son was the saintly chassid Reb Aharon, father of my grandmother the Rebbetzin. As previously mentioned, Reb Aharon ben Moshe was born in the year 5569 (1809).

This is all extremely confusing, so let’s try to figure out together what’s going on here.

According to the Rebbe Rayatz, this ‘Reb Moshe’ who marries Leah Golda, the daughter of Binyamin Broida, is the son of a close talmid of the Alter Rebbe, called Reb Alexander Sender of Shklov. Let’s go back to the account of the Rayatz:

Reb Sender ben Hirsh was Reb Moshe’s father. Reb Hirsh had been one of the town dignitaries of Shklov, in the early days of the Alter Rebbe’s leadership. When the Alter Rebbe visited Shklov for the first time on a matter of public affairs, Reb Hirsh was the first of the town dignitaries to become close to him.[7] Being a very wealthy businessman, he gave the Alter Rebbe an enormous sum of money to use for the public benefit.

====

The official history of Lubavitch states that this ‘Reb Sender’ died young, so then his son Moshe of Shklov was raised in the home of his grandfather, Reb Hirsh of Shklov, who was a very wealthy merchant.

So then, ‘Reb Moshe of Shklov’ marries Leah Golda Broida, and they have a son, Aharon, who ends up marrying (Chayah) Sarah #2, the daughter of the Mitteler Rebbe of Chabad. In turn, they have a daughter Rivkah, who marries the 4th Rebbe of Chabad, the Maharash, in 5609 (1849).

Got that?

Great. Let’s start to unpick it.

====

This whole thing turns on whether there is any additional evidence that Chabad was connected to the Frankist undercurrents that were swirling all around that period of time.

And the sad answer is, that such evidence exists.

The Alter Rebbe’s youngest son, Moshe, converted to catholicism. You can read a full account of that (also bringing Chabad’s ‘official response’ to this unpleasant fact) on Wikipedia, here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moshe_Schneersohn

Here’s an excerpt:

Documents found by historian Shaul Stampfer apparently document Schneersohn’s conversion to Christianity. The original documents are located in the National Historical Archives in MinskBelarus. These include a letter to the local priest in which he states his intent to convert and his baptismal certificate dated July 4, 1820. The documents also show that after his conversion he worked for the Tsar to assist in the conversion of other Jews.

====

There are some notable overlaps between the story of ‘Reb Moshe of Shklov’, as penned by the Rebbe Rayatz, and Moshe Shneurson, the Alter Rebbe’s Frankist-Catholic son.

‘Moshe Shneurson’ marries Shifra, the daughter of Rabbi Tzvi Hirsh of Ule, close to Liadi. After his conversion to xtianity, he takes the name Leon Yulievitch, and ends up in Shklov. Over the years, Chabad have expended a lot of energy denying that Moshe ever converted, and no-one talks about what happened to his descendants.

But once you understand that all the Shabbatean / Frankist families tended to marry each other over many generations, it makes it much easier to trace back who everyone really was, in the real world.

====

As I set out in this post, I have reason to believe that ‘Binyamin Broida’ is the same person as ‘Benjamin Rivlin of Shklov’, close follower of the Vilna Gaon, and one of the secret leaders of the haskalah, who hung out a lot with Baron Joshua Zeitlin (also in Shklov), another ‘secret’ leader of the haskalah.

I should state now, that a key tenet of ‘Frankism’ was promoting the assimilation of Jews, and blurring the distinctions between Judaism, xtianity and Islam. It’s not a coincidence that in the generation after Frank, the haskalah got started in earnest.

The people promoting it were almost certainly influenced by Frank, but (at least initially…) chose to remain within the Jewish community, where they could continue to influence others.

Over the last month, I have spent hours trying to put together correct family trees for all these people. And here’s where things are about to get even more interesting, again.

====

‘Benjamin Rivlin’ (aka Benjamin Broida) is listed as being the son of one ‘Shlomo Zalman Rivlin’ – who I believe is the son of Avraham Broda, with that same name.

‘Benjamin Rivlin’ has 3 siblings:

  • Eliyahu ben Shlomo Zalman (‘Platkes’ – this is probably the Vilna Gaon)
  • Mindel Schick (who marries Chanoch Henach Schick, the ABD of Shklov)
  • Sheftil

Eliyahu (Platkes) Rivlin has 4 children:

  • Fishel Rivlin
  • Arieh Leib Rivlin
  • Shlomo Zalman Rivlin of Shklov – I think this is the Alter Rebbe
  • Tzvi Hirsh Olier Rivlin of Ula – And this is the ‘Rabbi Tzvi Hirsh of Ula’ whose daughter, Shifra, marries the Alter Rebbe’s Frankist son, Moshe Schneuri.

====

If this genealogy is correct, that makes the Vilna Gaon the Alter Rebbe’s dad.

And if this genealogy is correct, it also suggests that the ‘Frankist connections’ were spread throughout the Vilna Gaon’s circles, and also throughout Chabad chassidut.

I appreciate that’s a very painful statement, but there is more evidence to back it up.

But before we do that, let’s just recap, to try to keep things straight:

====

The official genealogy set out by the Rebbe Rayatz has ‘Reb Moshe Alexanderov Sender‘ as the grandson of ‘Reb Hirsh of Shklov’. This ‘Reb Moshe’ marries a grand-daughter of Benjamin Broida, the Eshel Avraham’s grandson, named ‘Leah Golda‘.

Leah Golda and Moshe have a son Aharon, who marries the Mittler Rebbe’s daughter Chaya Sara. Their daughter Rivka marries Shmuel Shneerson, the 4th Rebbe of Chabad.

In the ‘real world’, Benjamin Rivlin of Shklov is the son of ‘Shlomo Zalman’, grandson of the Eshel Avraham via his son Moshe.

Benjamin Rivlin is the brother of Eliyahu Rivlin (probably the Vilna Gaon).

Eliyahu has a son, ‘Shlomo Zalman Rivlin of Shklov‘, who is probably the Alter Rebbe.

Benjamin Rivlin has another son, Tzvi Hirsh Olier of Ula, whose daughter Shifra definitely marries the Alter Rebbe’s frankist son, Moshe.

Shifra is a grand-daughter of Benjamin Rivlin (the grandson of the Eshel Avraham).

Leah Golda is a grand-daughter of ‘Benjamin Broida’ (the grandson of the Eshel Avraham)

====

In other words:

Shifra Rivlin = Leah Golda Broida

‘Reb Moshe Alexanderov Sender’ = Moshe Shneurson, the Alter Rebbe’s Frankist son.

Which means that the Mittler Rebbe’s daughter Chaya Sarah (#2) married her cousin, Aharon

Not such a big deal – except that cousin was being raised in a Frankist-Catholic home, and then became the father-in-law of the 4th Chabad Rebbe.

You can see why there has been such a convoluted attempt to cover up the genealogy.

But there’s more.

====

Benjamin and Eliyahu Rivlin’s sister Mindel Shick have an unnamed daughter, who marries someone called ‘Isak Juda (Lobl) Zacharias Joss.

They have a daughter, Elke, who marries none other Moshe Dobrushka, the son of Jacob Frank’s first cousin Schondel Dobrushka.

Moses Dobrushka is one of the leading ‘antinomian’ Frankists of his day, and ends up converting to xtianity, where he then takes on the name ‘Franz Thomas von Schonfeld’. This from Wikipedia:

“Some Frankists were active during the French Revolution, such as Moses Dobruška, a son of Frank’s Sabbatian cousin in Offenbach Shendl Dobruska. Many of the Frankists saw Napoleon Bonaparte as a potential Messiah.”

Read that last line carefully.

There is nothing new under the sun. The Frankists of 200 years ago were cheering Napoleon on as the ‘good in Esav’, too.

====

Ok, let’s recap, then leave things here for now.

There is still so much to say, of course, but I don’t want to blow your brainboxes too much, in one post.

We just learned that Benjamin Rivlin’s sister had a grand-daughter who married the infamous Frankist (and close relative of Jacob Frank himself), Moses Dobruska.

Again, remember that all these Sabbatian / Frankists repeatedly married each other, to ‘keep things in the family’ as much as possible.

Benjamin Rivlin’s grand-daughter Shira marries the Alter Rebbe’s son, Moshe Schneuri, and Moshe Schneri definitely converted to Catholicism.

Their son Aharon then marries his cousin, the Mittler Rebbe’s daughter Sarah #2, and becomes father-in-law of the 4th Chabad Rebbe, the Maharash.

====

For once, I’m not going to draw out the obvious conclusions.

Let each person think deeply about what I’ve set out above, and do their own cheshbon hanefesh.

And remember, that all this is just a klipa, just a shell, that still contains tremendous good, but needs to be peeled away for that good to be fully revealed.

In the next post, I want to try and shift the focus to the State of Israel and its links to the Freemasons / secret societies, via all these Frankist connections.

I think we’re probably going to get up to part 99 of this saga, the way things are going…

You know, I love a good mystery, and I love the ‘thrill’ of figuring things out. But I have to say, that even I am starting to be overwhelmed by all the twists and turns in the tangled web of ‘Jewish genealogy’ I’m caught up in the moment.

If you haven’t been paying attention, I’m trying to figure out a few things, not least:

  1. How exactly the Vilna Gaon and the Alter Rebbe are connected.

I know they are close family members – brothers, cousins, maybe even father and son, but I haven’t pinned it down exactly yet.

2. Why there are so many deliberate lies and distortions going on around the family trees of Yonatan Eybshutz, the Vilna Gaon, the Alter Rebbe and Jacob Frank (amongst many others…)

As I’ve mentioned, there are a few ‘gatekeepers’ on the geni.com website who keep popping up again and again and again, when I input certain family names.

Whenever I’m pursuing an interesting avenue, all the leads suddenly dry up, and it’s as though these people sprung fully formed from the head of Zeus.

No parents, no siblings, no other children…. always at those intersections where I would start to see how one group, one specific family, might link to another.

But Hashem is sending me more and more leads all the time, and BH, even with all the lies being told, we’re going to figure this out.

====

3. How is it, that so many of the ‘leading lights’ surrounding the Vilna Gaon apparently had double identities as the leaders of the haskalah movement?

Let’s give a concrete example.

If you go HERE, you’ll find the following information about ‘Rabbi Yehoshua Zeitlin’, a leading figure in the community of Shklov and the surrounding areas (I’ve screenshotted all of this, to make sure it doesn’t disappear…)

====

====

According to this rosy write up, Rav Yehoshua Zeitlin was a gaon, and a talmid of the Vilna Gaon and Rav Aryeh Leib Ginsburg, the Sha’agas Aryeh.

He was also wealthy – we’re told by this write up, from hamodia.com – and ‘supported many talmidim from his own pocket’.

Now it lists three of his ‘many talmidim’:

  1. Rabbi Menachem Leffin
  2. Rav Binyamin Rivlin
  3. Rav Boruch of Shklov

Here’s where it gets really interesting.

====

When I went to look up ‘Rabbi Yehoshua Zeitlin’ (1742-1822, born in Kherson) – this is what I discovered.

He was a Baron – Joshua Von Zeitlin – and the main supplier for Potemkin’s Russian armies, during the Turkish-Russian wars that began in 1768. Count Potemkin was a favorite of the Russian Empress Catherine the Great. You can read more about Potemkin HERE.

Here’s what the translation from an article in alef magazine (now mysteriously taken off line…) said about Baron Joshua Von Zeitlin:

“Yehoshua Zeitlin (1742–1822) is a personality not yet fully appreciated by historians. Meanwhile, he was the first prominent Jewish figure in Russia to combine deep rabbinical scholarship with a passionate desire to familiarize his fellow tribesmen with Russian public life. A prominent Hebraist and subtle interpreter of the Talmud, he at the same time highly appreciated Russian culture.

Yehoshua was a native of Shklov and came from a well-known and noble Jewish family…”

There’s more. Let’s continue. Another one of Catherine the Great’s boyfriends, Count Semyon Gavrilovich Zorich (1745-1799) is ‘retired’ to Shklov in 1777, where he soon creates a court to rival that of St Petersburg. Semyon has bad middot (to put it mildly…) and creates a very loose, immoral atmosphere in Shklov.

====

Somehow or other, Rabbi Yehoshua Zeitlin and his brother become Semyon’s main helpers and advisors:

Yehoshua (together with his brother, who was sent by Zorich to Riga to buy antiques and “soft junk” there at a reasonable price) becomes his assistant. It is not known what exactly the Count’s assignments were carried out by Zeitlin, but there is evidence that in the 1770s and 1780s he often visited Berlin on the instructions of this tyrant.

Fortunately, from such voyages, our hero [i.e. Joshua Zeitlin] received not only commercial benefits, but also abundant food for the mind.

He became close to the leaders of the Berlin Haskala and became a frequent visitor to the house of the founder of Jewish enlightenment, “Jewish Socrates” Moses Mendelssohn (1729–1789). Friendship ties tied him with such prominent Maskilim as the Chief Rabbi of Berlin, Hirsch Lebel (1721-1800); the outstanding linguist and exegete Naftali-Hertz Wesseli (1725-1805); the herald of reformism in Judaism, David Friedlander (1750–1834), and others. (Emphasis mine.)

Before I continue, let’s just recap what we’ve discovered.

On the one hand, ‘Rabbi Yehoshua Zeitlin’ is being lauded as a gaon and a tzaddik, author of the Amudei Gola sefer in the pages of Hamodia.

And on the other, we discover that he’s a leading proponent of ‘haskalah’ in Eastern Europe, and is hanging out with Moses Mendelssohn and others who were men known for pushing the ‘enlightened’ and ‘reform’ agenda.

What in the world is going on?

====

So now, I wanted to find a screenshot of Baron Joshua Zeitlin’s sefer, the Amudei Gola, and God sent me another mystery.

First, here’s the screenshot of the book, from here:

====

Sit down for this next bit.

The two people who gave Joshua Zeitlin’s book an approbation are R’Chanoch Henich Shick of Shklov – and the Baal HaTanya, Rav Shnuer Zalman Baruchovitch of Liadi.

Apparently, the auction house tells us that: ‘This is one of the few approbations of the Baal HaTanya that has seen print.’

So now, you tell me how it is that ‘Rabbi Yehoshua Zeitlin’s’ book has got an approbation from the Alter Rebbe, when he is described as being a close student of the Vilna Gaon.

And while you’re at it, please also tell me why one of the ‘few approbations’ of the Alter Rebbe should be found in a book written by a man who was a leading maskil.

And also, why Joshua Zeitlin is listed as the father in law of ‘Reb Alexander Sender’ – apparently one of the Alter Rebbe’s favorite talmidim:

Alexander Sender of Shklov was an outstanding chassid of the First Chabad Rebbe, a generous businessman of exemplary piety. When he passed away, the Alter Rebbe paid a condolence call to his father and testified that he had seen his soul “in exceptionally bright, shining garments” (Beis Rebbe). His grandson, Aharon, was the father of the fourth Rebbe’s wife, Rivka.

In fact, he was SO beloved by the Alter Rebbe that the 6th Rebbe, the Rayatz, wrote a whole chapter about him in his work ‘Her Husband’s Crown’, which you can read for yourself HERE.

Hey, even more interesting!

That link that I had in the comments section on this post: https://www.rivkalevy.com/curiouser-and-curiouser/, linking to this: http://www.sichos-in-english.org/books/sefer-hatoldos-admur-maharash/15.htm – has now disappeared.

It seems Chabad have now taken the book offline.

(I downloaded it all anyway, because I had a feeling something like that might happen.)

But hey Chabad, what do you have to hide?

Why remove the sichot of the Rayatz, describing his ancestor’s family tree, and particularly his links to his follower, ‘Reb Alexander Sender‘, and the story of Rebbetzin Lea Golde Broda, mother of the 4th Rebbe?

(Honestly, I’m starting to have a theory about that, but let’s continue.)

Let’s go back.

Here’s what Wikipedia has to say about ‘Baron Joshua Zeitlin’:

Joshua Zeitlin (1742 in ShklovBelarus – August 18, 1822, in KhersonNovorossiya) was a Russian rabbinical scholar and philanthropist. He was a pupil of the Talmudist Rabbi Aryeh Leib ben Asher Gunzberg who was the author of Sha’agat Aryeh; and, being an expert in political economy, he maintained close relations with Prince Potemkin, the favorite of Catherine II. During the Turko-Russian war, Zeitlin furnished the Russian army with various supplies, and managed that business so cleverly that he was afterward appointed imperial court councilor.

On retiring from business in the civil rank of Court Counsellor, Zeitlin resided on his estate Ustzia, where he was occasionally consulted by rabbis with regard to rabbinical questions. He rendered pecuniary assistance to many Talmudists and scholars, and supported a magnificent beit midrash, in which many Jewish scholars were provided with all of life’s necessities, so that they could pursue their vocations without worries of any kind.

Among the scholars who benefited from his generosity were: Rabbi Nahum, author of Tosafot BikkurimMendel Lepin, author of Cheshbon ha-Nefesh; and the physician Baruch Schick

====

Mendel Lepin = ‘Rabbi Menachem Leffin’ (1749-1826)

(He may well also be the same ‘Menachem Mendel Levin’ who authored a sefer called ‘Cheshbon HaNefesh’.)

Here’s what we learn about ‘Mendel Lepin / Lefin / Levin’ from the Jewish encyclopaedia:

LEVIN (LEFIN), MENAHEM MENDEL (1749–1826), early Haskalah author, translator, and educator. Born in Satanov, Podolia, he had a traditional Jewish education but also studied sciences, mathematics, and medieval philosophy in his youth.

From 1780 to 1783/84 Levin lived in Berlin, where he met Moses *Mendelssohn, through whom he established contact with the leaders of the Haskalah. …

Levin taught mathematics and philosophy to Czartoryski’s children, which was rare at that time, and dedicated his unpublished philosophical treatise, “Aus dem Nachlass eines Sonderlings zu Abdera,” to Czartoryski’s wife. When the great Sejm met in Warsaw (1788–92), Levin participated in discussions on contemporary problems.

Toward the end of the 18th century, he resided in Ustye and in St. Petersburg in the home of the wealthy philanthropist J. *Zeitlin, serving as tutor to his grandson. After 1808 he lived in Brody and Tarnopol, where his influence on the maskilim in Galicia, notably N. *Krochmal and J. *Perl, was so considerable that he is regarded as the father of the Galician Haskalah.

Isn’t that shocking?

Yet again, we see that the people being lauded as the main disciples of the Vilna Gaon are one and the same as the people mamash leading the haskalah in Europe.

What on earth is going on here?

====

I’m still  looking into ‘Boruch of Shklov’ and ‘Rabbi Binyamin Rivlin’, (amongst other things) so expect this series of ‘curiouser and curioser’ to continue for some time.

But there are some very serious questions bobbing up here about who exactly the Vilna Gaon really was, who his students really were – and what they really stood for – and how the Alter Rebbe and Chabad chassidut connects into this whole hot mess.

TBC

(Unless someone in 770 decides to try and take my blog out of action again 😉

UPDATE:

Here’s what I found about Baruch Schick of Shklov:

He was another radical maskil, and another ‘student’ of the Vilna Gaon. And he’s connected to the Rabbi Chanoch Henich Shick of Shklov who gave approbations for that sefer, above, together with the Ba’al HaTanya:

====

SCHICK, BARUCH BEN JACOB (also known as Baruch Shklover , from the name of his birthplace, Shklov; 1740?–after 1812), rabbi, physician, and one of the pioneers of *Haskalah of Eastern Europe.

Schick was ordained as a rabbi in 1764 and subsequently served as dayyan in Minsk. In his youth he was already attracted to the Haskalah and general knowledge. His first scholarly work and his other works were lost in a conflagration. He traveled to London to study medicine and there joined the Freemasons. After qualifying as a doctor he moved to Berlin, where he became acquainted with the maskilim of the town, including Moses *Mendelssohn and Naphtali Herz *Wessely.

In 1778, on his way back to Minsk, he visited Vilna and was in the group associated with Elijah b. Solomon (the Gaon of Vilna), in whose name he published a statement on the need for scientific knowledge for an understanding of the Torah…. He stated that the Gaon of Vilna advised him to translate scientific works into Hebrew in order to make their contents available to Jews….

After some time he settled in Shklov, and there he belonged to the maskilim whose needs were supplied by the wealthy Joshua *Zeitlin of Ustye near Shklov….

Schick devoted his energies to arousing his fellow Jews to the need for studying the arts and sciences. He regarded the neglect of the sciences as caused by the exile. He repeated the accusations of his predecessor, Israel Moses ha-Levi *Zamoscz, against the fanatical rabbis and leaders who persecuted and condemned the maskilim. To restore science to its former place of honor, he pleaded for a revival of Hebrew, in which scientific works intended for his people should be written.”

UPDATE #2:

The link to the Chabad writings is working again. Baruch Hashem.

UPDATE #3:

Here’s a screenshot mentioned by Aliza, below, in the comments section, that comes from this book:

The Secret Doctrine of the Gaon of Vilna Volume II: The Josephic Messiah, Leviathan, Metatron and the Sacred Serpent

From what I remember from the comments of Netanel Simcha, who mentioned that ‘Metatron’ is the reason Acher turned into an anti-Torah heretic, it seems that this angel is back in the picture here, too.

The book is written by the descendant of the Vilna Gaon’s brother, R Avraham Ragoler, and sets out the Vilna Gaon’s ‘kabbalah’ connected to geula and moshiach.

You’ll notice that the Gaon apparently refers to HIMSELF as Moshiach ben Yosef….

Which is interesting, hey?
