If the USA is not the ‘good’ country that we’ve all been brainwashed into thinking they are, by our MSM…

Then this starts to change the whole picture in a number of massive ways.

And when we recall that the USA enjoys a very ‘special relationship’ with our very own State of Israel…. and that the State of Israel frequently acts as the ‘go-between’ when it comes to the USA selling weapons and exporting violence all over the world to shore up it’s own financial and geopolitical interests….

That starts to lead us to some very uncomfortable conclusions, much closer to home.

====

Commentator Becky just left a link to this video, which I hadn’t realised was from 2018.

It’s entitled: Israel is Arming Ukraine’s Blatantly Neo-Nazi Militia, the Azov Battalion.

====

The news was first broken by Asa Winstanley of the Electronic Intifada – and before Covid 19 happened, that’s where my involvement in it would have stopped.

Because even though I knew things were very broken, morally, in the State of Israel, I still didn’t want to accept that things could be this bad.

Now, after I’ve watched this government coerce millions of its citizens into taking health-destroying, life-destroying secret nanotech in the shots; and I saw what happened to Ahuvya Sandek; and I saw how the State of Israel deliberately killed 45 religious Jews in Meron, with the use of Directed Energy Weapons – and is now busy covering everything up.

Well.

Now, my view of what the (Freemason-Frankist) State of Israel is really capable of has dramatically shifted.

====

Now, I’m taking a second look at a lot of those stories that I previously dismissed, as coming from ‘anti-semitic’, biased sources.

HERE‘s Winstanley’s original story, from July 4, 2018, snippet below:

Azov Battalion online propaganda shows Israeli-licensed Tavor rifles in the fascist group’s hands, while Israeli human rights activists have protested arms sales to Ukraine on the basis that weapons might end up with anti-Semitic militias.

In a letter “about licenses for Ukraine” obtained by The Electronic Intifada, the Israeli defense ministry’s arms export agency says they are “careful to grant licenses” to arms exporters “in full coordination with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and other government entities.”

The 26 June letter was sent in reply to Israeli lawyer Eitay Mack who had written a detailed request demanding Israel end all military aid to the country.

====

We learned a lot of things since this was written.

Like, at least part of the Azov Battalion funding was coming from Jewish businessmen Igor Kolomoisky, (that we covered in more detail HERE.)

Here’s a snippet of what it now says on Igor Kolomoisky’s Wikipedia page:

In 2021 the US banned him, and his family, from entering the country, claiming that he corruptly enriched himself as governor, and posed a serious threat to the future of Ukraine.

Weird, that the Biden administration would ban the guy whose ‘PrivatBank’ laundered so much of the stolen cash from Ukraine into the hands of…. Joe Biden and family.

Clearly, there is a lot more going on here than meets the eye, but let’s get back to the neo-Nazi angle to all this, and the State of Israel’s involvement with it.

====

On the ‘Right Sector’ Wikipedia page, we find this strange paragraph:

In February 2014, Yarosh [then leader of the Right Sector] and the Israeli ambassador to Ukraine agreed to establish a “hotline” to prevent provocations and coordinate actions when issues arise.The group assists in the protection of Jewish sites in Odessa….

Right Sector became a dominant theme of Russian propaganda, which grossly exaggerated its strength and influence in the new Ukraine. It was portrayed as a mortal threat to Russian speakers and Jews that necessitated a Russian military intervention.

In Crimea and the East, a “Right Sector” vandalism spree targeting synagogues, Jewish cemeteries, and Holocaust memorials was widely seen as a Russian false flag attack. In Simferopol, a synagogue was defaced with the wolfsangel symbol used by the Ukrainian far-right, but in the mirror-image of its normal orientation; in Odessa, vandals defaced a Jewish cemetery with graffiti reading “Right Sector” but misspelled the group’s name.

The next day Yarosh met with the Chief Rabbi of Odessa to show solidarity with Ukrainian Jews and was photographed helping paint over the graffiti.

====

Lots and lots to think about here, but at the very least, we can say that the Israeli ambassador to Ukraine in 2014 had close links with ‘Right Sector’ – which included the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion.

That much seems clear.

Here’s a screenshot from the Israeli Embassy in Ukraine’s own website, from HERE:

====

In the meantime, if you go HERE, you will find the original Ukrainian report covering the ‘Right Sector’ offering to paint over graffiti on Jewish targets in Odessa.

Translated snippet below:

The Right Sector has offered the Jewish community of Odessa protection and assured that it has no sucker (?) for desecrating Jewish sites in the city.

This was announced after a meeting between the representative of the ” RS “and the chief rabbi of Odessa and the South of Ukraine Avraham Wolf, writes “Forum Daily”.

The RS representative offered to help the rabbi protect Jewish sites in the city.Moreover, the Right Sector now considers it a matter of honor to find and punish those who desecrated the Jewish cemetery.

A representative of the Right Sector leadership arrived in Odessa from Kiev after unknown vandals painted swastikas and “Death to Jews” signs on dozens of Odessa homes and a Jewish cemetery on the night of April 8.

He assured that their organization has nothing to do with the act of vandalism and condemns it.

Rabbi Avraham Wolf said that he considers these acts of vandalism a deliberate provocation of pro-Russian forces, who are trying to draw Jews into the conflict.

====

I went to the link on the ‘Forum Daily’ site to see if there were more details on this surprising story, and here’s a snippet from there that fills the picture out a bit more:

Rabbi Avraham Wolf told the portal “Forum Daily, which considers these acts of vandalism a deliberate provocation by pro-Russian forces, who are trying to draw Jews into the conflict, despite the neutrality of the Jewish community.

According to the spiritual leader of the Jews of Odessa “ ” these are the same forces that organize riots in Odessa, Donetsk, Kharkiv and Luhansk.”

====

I don’t know about you, but this doesn’t strike me as a ‘neutral’ statement at all.

How could Rabbi Wolf know who defaced the graves with antisemitic slogans?

How could he know that it was done by ‘the same forces that organize riots in Odessa, Donetsk, Kharkiv and Luhansk’?

====

If the name ‘Avraham Wolf’ sounds familiar to you, that’s because we covered him HERE.

Snippet:

EXHIBIT 1: CHABAD RABBIS IN THE UKRAINE APPEAR TO HAVE FOREKNOWLEDGE OF THE WAR

This is a copy of email sent out by R’ Avraham Wolf, the Chabad rabbi of Odessa Jewish community three weeks ago, where he states he ALREADY spent $300k buying in food and other supplies for the wave of Jewish refugees he is expecting.

בס”ד
Dear brothers!

Thank you for the interest and concern of all of you for our situation in Ukraine.

The pressure in our community is undoubtedly very great.

Our role as emissaries and rabbis, is first and foremost in these hours, to encourage, strengthen, and relieve the pressure of the Jews in the community.

Of course none of us leave, even though Israeli citizens are leaving the country for fear of what is going to happen here.

Of course, we have been organizing for several months for other scenarios, Chas V’shalom, without publishing it, so as not to cause pressure and fears among the Jews.

Just to clear your ears, we organized and purchased about a thousand sleeping bags in case of Jewish refugees from the Kharkiv, Kiev and Dnieper regions who come to us in Odessa.

We also purchased 30 tons of flour, 20 tons of sugar, 30 tons of macaroni, 25 tons of rice and almost 40 tons buckwheat (gretzke).

These are purchases that cost us about $ 300,000, loans we took from local banks, all so that we could feed the hundreds of children growing up in orphanages, the hundreds of students from across Ukraine who live with us, and the hundreds of Holocaust survivors who live in the community’s old age.

In the coming days, Israeli security companies will come here to be added to the local security companies that already work with us, this is a vital need throughout the year but much more critical at such times, the costs are very high and no body covers them for us!

On the subject of the loans we took out and the lack of money for what we still need to buy and get organized surely needless to explain! The situation here is very difficult and we are, God forbid, facing collapse and we urgently need a lot of money in order to be equipped and properly organized for the difficult situation that lies ahead.

We still lack medical emergency equipment, protective equipment and a huge amount of food products for a long time for hundreds of Jews who can not leave the country and have nowhere to go.

In such difficult days we all with Israel are guarantors of each other and all over the world we must all unite and give a shoulder to our brothers who are in danger.

At the moment we are doing everything, so that we are not caught are not ready Chas Vechalilah, time is pressing and we must do it quickly before it is too late.

Thank you very much and Tizku Lemitzvos!

Rabbi Avraham Wolf,

the Rabbi of the Odessa Jewish community.”

====

It seems to always be the same story: Chabad rabbis, Chabad representatives, claiming to be ‘totally a-political’, who in reality, are anything but.

While we’re on this topic, I just want to point out another Chabad link to all this that surfaced a few days ago. Again, I don’t know what all this means, still, I’m just collecting the information together, so that eventually the truth will somehow appear.

If you go HERE, you’ll find an article about Jewish oligarch Victor Pinchuk, who made most of his cash after (luckily!) marrying the daughter of former (corrupt…) Ukraine President Leonid Kuchma.

In THIS post, we already set out that Victor Pinchuk is very closely aligned with Klaus Schwab and the World Economic Forum, and also works with George Soros – you know, the guy who paid for the EuroMaidan coup that got rid of the pro-Russian President Victor Yanukovych.

Yanukovych was forced out of office by the EuroMaidan riots literally three weeks after refusing to sign an agreement with the EU, that he felt would be bad for the Ukrainian economy.

Who was leading the violence in the EuroMaidan riots?

Yup, that’s right: the ‘Right Sector’, at least partially funded by Igor Kolomoisky, and George Soros.

(The same Igor Kolomoisky who shot President Zelensky to fame as the ‘Servant of the People’, and then paid for his campaign to become President of the Ukraine back in 2019.)

Small world!

====

Kolomoisky and Victor Pinchuk used to be business partners, but fell out in a whole bunch of different ways.

They were / are both close to the same Chabad Rabbi, Shmuel Kaminetsky, who according to THIS used to mediate between the two oligarchs to try and keep a lid on some of their more explosive disagreements.

Snippet (Google translated):

Kolomoisky and Bogolyubov became parishioners of Kaminetsky back in the early 90’s, and they were also the main sponsors of the construction of the Menora center in Dnepropetrovsk.

At the same time, Kaminetsky is not only a spiritual leader, but also helps solve the worldly problems of members of his community – including resolving their disputes in business and helping them out of difficult situations….

In general, the fact that Shmuel Kaminetsky is an ambiguous and rather complex person is indicated by the recent history with his condemnation of” neo-Nazism “in Ukraine and, in particular, criticism of the use of” Azov ” symbols similar to Nazi runes.

These denunciations from Kaminetsky’s mouth would have seemed quite logical, if not for one “but”: it is unlikely that he did not know that the sponsors of the “Right Sector” are his favorite Kolomoisky, and “Azov” is the oligarch Alexander Feldman, so respected by him, through whom Kaminetsky hoped to spread the influence of Chabad in Kharkiv…

====

This screenshot comes from HERE:

(This appears to be saying that already by 2015, Kolomoisky stops funding Azov, and that funding is taken over by someone else…. possibly, George Soros.)

====

Before we continue, let’s just state the obvious again:

Any time you have big money, big business – you have BIG corruption.

And not only that, you tend to have BIG mafia ties.

And not only that, you tend to have BIG connections to local politics and politicians.

And not only that – you tend to be up to your neck in all the things that help to make this world such a spiritual cess pool.

No-one becomes a mega billionaire in a kind, honest way. That’s just not how the world works.

====

I’m trying to do some birur on that supposed link between Azov and another Jewish Ukrainian oligarch, Alexander Feldman – from a quick look so far, I can’t seem to stand it up.

If anything, it looks like Feldman was aligned with the pro-Russian Yanukovych, who the Azov battalion helped to force out of office in 2014.

But I’ll do a bit more digging, because Wikipedia just doesn’t mention 99% of the real information about these people.

====

You can find Shmuel Kaminetsky’s Wikipedia page HERE.

You can find a write up about Kaminetsky’s community on the Russian LeChaim website, HERE, snippet below:

If you ask any Jew in Dnepropetrovsk: “Why do you have so many Jewish homes and why are people so happy in them?” – he will answer: “Because we have a wise Rabbi Shmuel Kaminetsky. And also because we have a powerful community, it has a strong Board of Trustees, and its head is President Gennady Bogolyubov. If they didn’t exist, something would have happened, but THIS wouldn’t have happened for sure.”

====

Gennaday Bogolyubov – the third richest man in the Ukraine – apparently made teshuva, and now is part of the Chabad community of Belgravia, in the UK.

This snippet comes from HERE:

The father of six is believed to have donated more than $ 80 million to Chabad. He founded a foundation that sent $ 5,000 to every Chabad rabbi who celebrated family Simcha, which for many years was tens of millions. Another of his passions is supporting excavations and conservation projects in the Cauldron.

====

In the meantime, he left his position as the head of the lay Jewish community in Dnepropetrovsk…. and Igor Kolomoisky replaced him.

If you go to Bogolyubov’s Wikipedia page HERE, you’ll also learn that:

Bogolyubov and fellow Ukrainian billionaire Igor Kolomoisky are being sued by another Ukrainian billionaire Viktor Pinchuk in the largest damages claim before London’s High Court, for about US$2 billion.

Again, these aren’t nice people.

This headline from the Independent kind of sums that up:

Snippet:

Some of the most extraordinary allegations of violence, murder and corruption ever seen in a London commercial legal dispute have emerged in High Court documents.

====

Why does all this matter?

It matters, because when we read headlines of the connections between the State of Israel and the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion, we have to understand that there are a bunch of super-wealthy Jewish oligarchs, many of whom have very strong ties to Chabad, who are acting as the ‘middle men’ in so many of these political intrigues with massive implications for all of us.

For example, Bogolyubov paid tens of millions of dollars to dig out another area of the Western Wall tunnels, that is now functioning as  the Western Wall Heritage Foundation’s ‘education centre’.

And he has Israeli citizenship.

And he’s the business partner of Igor Kolomoisky, who helped fund the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion, whilst simultaneously sitting on the board of the “United Jewish Community of Ukraine” with Chabad rabbi Shmuel Kaminetsky.

That same ‘Chabad’ that made headlines all over the place screaming about Russian aggression and evacuating orphans from Odessa, while publically whitewashing the Azov Battalion from any claims that it’s ‘anti-semitic’.

====

A now deleted webpage contains a link to a video that apparently shows Chabad Rabbi Shmuel Kaminetzky saying this, back in 2014:

====

Does this sound ‘a-political’ to you?

And it’s also hard to understand on personal terms, as Kaminetsky was actually born in Kfar Chabad, lived for many years in the USA, and only moved to Ukraine as an adult.

I simply don’t understand how ‘Rabbis’ think they can make public statements like this, with such far-reaching implications, and not consider how many problems they are potentially making for other Jews, other Jewish communities.

====

Before Kolomoisky, it was another oligarch Vadim Rabinovich who headed up the board of the United Jewish Community of Ukraine – who also has Israeli citizenship, donated the Golden Menorah displayed by the Western Wall, and is also being investigated for major corruption:

In 2018, The National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine launched an investigation into two criminal proceedings concerning illegal enrichment and falsification of tax returns of Vadym Rabinovic…

In Israel, he is known as a donor of the famous golden menorah weighing 800 kg to the Temple Institute in Jerusalem. After handing over the Menorah, the Israeli Knesset cleared Rabinowitz of all charges and gave him permission to enter the country.

====

You see what I mean?

It’s the same story over, and over again.

And we’re always being expected to believe that people who make millions and billions in some of the dirtiest, most corrupt and notoriously evil countries of the world are somehow ‘pure shining angels’, just because they give a lot of money to charidee.

====

Let’s end with this.

I came across a site being written by a French freelance journalist working in the Donbass region, called donbass-insider.com.

It’s being very heavily censored, so I can only get to the posts via the wayback machine, HERE.

The following is an extensive snippet of the last post from March 10, 2022, which you can read in entirety HERE, called:

SBU THE TERRIBLE UKRAINIAN POLITICAL POLICE, ASSASSINATIONS AND TORTURE

There is no war in Donbass… only an anti-terrorist operation. Yes you read that right, it’s a law of the Rada of Ukraine that was passed back in 2014, there is no war in Eastern Ukraine… but terrorists who were seeking to destroy the country.

According to this rhetoric, the SBU, which deals with counter-espionage, was deployed and very quickly committed numerous abuses, assassinations and various crimes.

According to various sources, the SBU had nearly 30,000 agents and employees, and very quickly attacked anything Russian, anti-Maidan and which could hinder the march of the Coloured Revolution financed and organised by the USA, in the winter of 2013-2014. 

====

The post then goes on to cover some first-hand stories of people who were horribly tortured – recently! – by the SBU Ukrainian secret police, and also saw many other people being killed by them.

====

Here’s another long snippet:

Secret prisons and torture sites of the SBU… under American control?

In 2016, I had the chance to interview in two sessions, 11 political prisoners exchanged by Ukraine (via the Red Cross), for Ukrainian soldiers. What they told me still haunts my memory and sometimes my nights.

This is how I discovered the extent of political repression in Ukraine.

The SBU can arrest without an arrest warrant anyone on the territory of Ukraine. These people are illegally interrogated and imprisoned. To make them talk and “destroy terrorism in Ukraine”, all means are good.

==

These 11 people have all told me about sometimes horrific torture.

One was imprisoned and tortured for 14 months in Zaporozhie. The trauma he suffered made it very difficult to interview him, as he was reliving the torture and shaking like a leaf, literally broken by the endless abuse he had suffered. Another had heart problems, following the use of “gégène” on him during long sessions.

One woman was among the lot, she had had her nails pulled out, her teeth broken…. From her appearance I didn’t dare to believe that at the time she was my age (43), and she had to get out her identity papers to prove to me that she was not 65. The poor woman had been injected with drugs and substances for 20 days and it was difficult for me to hear all that she had seen and suffered…..

 In the end my investigation ended with enough information to point to at least four secret prisons in Ukraine, in Zaporozhie, Kharkov, Kiev and finally Kramatorsk.

It is certain that in these prisons hundreds of people were murdered, one of the resistance fighters gave me a list of about fifteen names of people who were killed during his detention, as for the woman she told me about executions committed in her prison during the 20 days she spent there.

====

Of course, the Ukraine is not the only country where the excuse of ‘fighting terrorism’ has been used to justify terrible torture, harassment and killing of innocent people by the secret services.

It seems to be the same modus operandi, the same horrible violence, the same covered-up evil – somehow connected to the USA – in many different places.

There’s another story on that site that also made me sit up and re-evaluate a whole bunch of things we are being told by the MSM, entitled:

UKRAINIAN ARMY USES CIVILIANS AS HUMAN SHIELDS TO PROTECT ITSELF FROM THE RUSSIAN ARMY

The headline says it all.

But go read it for yourself, and come to your own conclusions.

====

Again, I’m not cheerleading Putin.

Again, pretty much any world leader today has to be a corrupt scumbag (at best….), otherwise they wouldn’t be allowed to continue in the job for long.

But I’m pointing out that the real enemies here are the ones with the cash and the influence and the secret agendas.

And those people, sadly, exist in every single country, government and military.

Including ours.

====

UPDATE:

I don’t have Telegram, but you can ‘preview’ most of the information as a visitor.

If you go HERE, an independent Italian journalist in Donesk recently uploaded video showing that a UKRAINIAN rocket just killed 23 civilians in the middle of the street there.

Of course, accidents happen with friendly fire.

But compare and contrast this footage (if you have a strong stomach) with the fake footage being churned out by the MSM, and you’ll quickly learn how to spot more of the ‘fake news’ propaganda.

Again, this doesn’t mean Putin and Russia are ‘good guys’.

I’m very happy to also post up credible information showing the ‘other side of the coin’ – that’s the only way we’ll get to the truth, here.

But as usual, the MSM is doing such a one-sided propaganda job here, I kind of feel I have to keep showing THIS side of the coin, just to make a small attempt to even the coverage out.

TBC

====

UPDATE 2:

Here’s some more real footage from Donbass, from March 6, 2022.

Nothing horrible, just interviews with the locals where they describe how the Ukrainian army has been mistreating them for the last 8 years, and is now firing on them, and also using them as ‘human shields’ by setting up their trenches right next to their homes.

It’s in French, but you can get the idea:

====

You might also like this article:

 

I gave you a lot to read this week (!) so this is just a shorter post, to draw some more conclusions.

I was reading through some more info and comments on all these ‘Jewish orphans’ from war-torn Ukraine – who may, or really may not be Jewish at all.

As I said in THIS post, it seems highly unlikely that a city like Odessa, with a Jewish population of 12,500 in 2012, would have 350 Jewish  orphans that need shipping out to Israel.

(BTW, on the ‘Tikva’ website HERE, they now say the Jewish community has grown to 45,000 Jews. That also sounds like a massive increase, in just 10 years, but what do I know…)

====

Commentator Inna said this:

I live in the community that is very active supporters of Tikva orphanage in Odessa.

Constant fundraising and gala parties with art sales and fashion shows in New York. To a normal mind from former Soviet Union knowing who the Jews were there it is almost impossible to conceive that there are Jewish orphans.
Never saw a Jewish mom leave her child. If not the mom then family would take over.

It is just not in our blood to leave kids.

====

Here’s a screenshot from the Tikva website, talking about how many orphans they’ve saved in the last 20 years:

====

Again, I’m not saying they aren’t working with orphans, and doing a bunch of good things.

For sure, they must be doing some stuff with kids, in Odessa.

What I’m questioning, tho, is whether these kids are really Jewish?

And when I read things like ‘there are still 2,500 desperate Jewish children waiting to be rescued’ – in a community of 45,000 Jews – I find those figures very hard to believe, honestly.

====

Then over email, I got this from someone else, also talking about this Tikva orphanage in Odessa:

Apparently some organisation called Tikvah raised $1.6 million for Jewish orphans in Ukraine: https://www.israelnationalnews.com/news/323251.
This organization has a strange feel to me. They even have a CEO, Refael Kruskal, who says he’s Haredi and the Kyiv Chief Rabbi, and they have a large board of trustees (who all work for free, right?).
Their website makes it sound like Ukraine is some sort of 3rd world country where rachmana litzlan. Jewish orphans roam the streets (not true). But I guess that’s how you raise funds….
Arutz 7 had an article about “refugees from Ukraine” landing on an aliyah flight, including the “Chief Rabbi.” 
[Ed note: This was R Shlomo Baksht. You can read about him HERE – on a Wikipedia page that was clearly started by a great admirer of his, just two days ago.]
====

Now I really wonder where they are taking these kids in Medinat Yisroel.

From the pictures of the buses, it looks to me like Chabad’s so-called 140 orphans and this organisation’s so-called 170 orphans are one and the same and a lot of tzedekah is being raised off this ‘story.’
====

When I read this stuff together this morning, a few cogs started to whir in my brain about another possible angle to all this.

This headline comes from HERE, from March 2021:
====

Despite the fact that they have the Knesset bought and sold; and the Chief Rabbinate bought and sold, and so many ‘leading Rabbis’ secretly working for them, the Frankist-Freemasons who run the State of Israel still know that they can’t shove this law down the public’s throat, without a huge amount of pushback from the regular Jews who live here.

Even ‘secular’ Jews, even Jews who don’t consider themselves to be a tiny bit religious – most of those Jews in Israel simply won’t agree with this law, to accept Reform and Conservative ‘conversions’, thereby totally corrupting the definition of ‘who is a Jew’ forever more, in the State of Israel.

This is a line in the sand that 99% of the Jewish population just won’t cross.

So….what could change their mind?
====

How about a bunch of cute, war-torn orphans from Ukraine – with no papers, and big questions about whether they are even Jewish at all?

Who wouldn’t want to ‘bend the rules’ – just a bit! – to get these cute orphan kids pronounced ‘Jewish’ so they can stay in Israel, regardless of the enormous, destructive precedent that would then set for the rest of the Jews here?
What, you’re going to call these poor, orphan kids’ ‘Jewishness’ into question?!?!?
Monsters!
Sigh.
It’s all just a puppet theatre, a big show, to manipulate the public into falling into line with the real Frankist-Freemason agenda.
(In case you were asleep, the real agenda is to totally uproot authentic Judaism in the State of Israel.)
Sigh again.
====

Take a look at this wonderful piece of State of Israel propaganda:

It’s a bunch of singing Bnei Akiva girls, welcoming refugees from Kyiv, that just got brought to Israel by United Hatzalah.

How many of these refugees are really halachically Jewish?

Who cares!!!
There’s a war going on.
Only a monster would ask a question like that…
====
Again, the timing of all this is just SOOOO perfect.

Conversions are about to become the big news again in Israel, as soon as Lapid gets to finally sit in the PM’s chair.

There is nothing like 100,000 newly-arrived Ukrainian refugees in Israel – many of whom probably AREN’T halachically Jewish, because I doubt highly that anyone spent a few weeks checking out ketubas before they flew them out of Kiev this week – to totally ignite the emotional aspect of this debate, to steamroller any objections about ‘halacha needing to be followed’.

====

Next, I also got an email that said this:

Listen from minute 16 about Chabad in Russia:

This is an interview between R Dovid Smith (who happens to be a US chabadnik) and Tamar Yonah.
Around the 16 minute mark, R Smith basically starts explaining that a lot of the Chabad rabbis in Russia are basically working for the State, and are being controlled and monitored by the spooks there to ‘run propaganda’ for Putin, and affect public opinion (and government policy) in the West.
Amongst other things.
====

There is a lot more to say on the topic of the real connections between Chabad and communism.

I’m pulling the pieces together more and more each week, and BH, we’ll get to it soon.
But I thought the interview with R Smith is at least a giant step in the right direction, because we have to stop buying into Chabad propaganda that everything they do is good, and flawless, and amazing, and beyond question.
There are some very dark things going on, behind the mask.

No-one gets to be in the corridors of power like that, unless they are providing an invaluable service to the people there.

And the people in those corridors of powers, at least at the very top, are, without exception, evil scummers who will do anything to maintain their popularity, power and position.
(And that’s the best you can say about them…. The real truth about just how corrupt all this is hasn’t really got out there yet. But it will, BH.)
====
So…. lots to digest.
Lots to process.
But above all, keep questioning EVERYTHING, and don’t let the MSM and the propaganda take over your mind and soul with their lies and propaganda.
Every single Jew, every single person, who continues to strive to do the birur, and strives to find the truth in the midst of all the lives literally affects hundreds, or maybe thousands of others.
Keep holding up that small candle of ‘wanting the truth’.

Because that’s what is really lighting the path towards geula and Moshiach.

In this post, we’re going to take a closer look at some more of the strange information connected to the war in the Ukraine.

You can read Part 1 HERE.

I had to split the information up, as things were getting too long for one post, so here, we’re going to continue where we left off.

Again, I just want to underline that all I’m doing in these posts is starting to bring information together that is either being overlooked, unreported, or actively suppressed, which may help us to figure more things out, about what’s really going on in the Ukraine right now.

And who the real ‘enemies of humanity’ really might be….

====

Let’s begin by recapping the main points of the last post:

Igor Kolomoiski, is an externally ‘Jewish’ Ukrainian oligarch and media mogul.

Over the last few years:

  1. He shot Vladimir Zelensky to stardom in ‘Servant of the People‘, then financially supported Zelensky’s campaign to become President of Ukraine.
  2. He embezzled millions and millions of dollars, especially via his now nationalised ‘PrivatBank‘.
  3. PrivatBank’ was also one of the vehicles used by Mykola Zlochevsky to launder embezzled money for himself, and current US President Joe Biden (who literally encouraged Putin to start this war, when he said there would be no military pushback, only ‘sanctions’, that Putin doesn’t care about.
  4. When he’s not being the president of the United Jewish Community of Ukraine, he is spending tens of millions of dollars arming Ukrainian neo-nazi groups like the ‘Azov Battalion’, amongst many others.
  5. In July 2014 a Russian District Court authorized [Kolomoyskyi’s] arrest in absentia for “organizing the killing of civilians”.
  6. These murdered Russian civilians are the publically-stated reason stated by Putin for beginning the war, invading the Donbass region of Ukraine, and cleaning up the ‘neo nazi’ groups in the Ukraine.
  7. Kolomoiski’s protege, Zelensky, gave the order to release a bunch of murderers and rapists to ‘fight the Russians’, and also gave the order to hand out guns to these ‘volunteer battalions’ of neo-Nazis, funded by the self-same Kolomoisky.
  8. American-born R’ Yaakov Bleich has been battling it out with Chabad’s Moshe Azman to be recognised as the ‘Chief Rabbi of Ukraine‘ for years.
  9. Bleich also has weird links to Ukrainian fascist groups, including the Organisation of Ukrainian Nationalists; is currently fundraising for Ukrainians to fight the Russians, and is apparently acting as a spokesman for Kolomoisky actor, Zelensky.

====

Just yesterday, on March 2, 2022, The Forward ran a story about the battle between Yaakov Bleich and Moshe Atzmon, to be acclaimed as the ‘Chief Rabbi of Ukraine.

You can read that HERE, and here’s a screenshot and snippet:

====

The articles rakes a lot of muck (there is a lot of it to rake, unfortunately…)

The takeaways is that American rabbi Yaakov Bleich was a former Karlin-Stolin chassid who somehow became Chief Rabbi of the Ukraine in 1992.

Then in 2003, Chabad unilaterally appointed another American, Azriel Haikin, as ‘Chief Rabbi of the Ukraine – but his appointment never really ‘took’, for a number of reasons, possibly including the fact he was in his 70s and hasn’t lived in the Ukraine since 2008…

Then in 2005, another Chabad contender for ‘Chief Rabbi of the Ukraine’ showed up, Russian-born Moshe Azman.

Of course, all this was accompanied with maximum infighting and yucky stuff.

And of course, all these candidates for ‘Chief Rabbi of the Ukraine’ also have very strong – weirdly strong – ties to leading politicians, and to ‘oligarchs’ and businessmen, all over the world.

====

According to The Forward:

[Azman] was close to Viktor Yushchenko, who had been elected president of Ukraine the year before after surviving an assassination attempt by poison during the volatile campaign. Yushchenko named Azman as his liaison to Ukraine’s Jewish community.

But Azman’s election was deemed illegitimate by a majority of the local Chabad rabbis, who represented the Federation of Jewish Communities, the region’s largest Jewish group. Secular Jewish leaders from local cities and towns joined in protesting the vote.

Bleich never gave up his title and remained active in the country. A Kyiv weekly magazine, Focus, named Bleich and Rabbi Shmuel Kamenetzky, the chief rabbi of Ukraine’s Dnepropetrovsk Jewish community, among the 15 most “powerful foreigners” in the country in 2008.

==

That same year, the Karlin-Stolin Hasidic sect disavowed Bleich amid an internal power battle over the community’s institutions in Ukraine.

Bleich also held other communal leadership positions. He served as an executive member of the World Jewish Congress until the summer of 2021, and vice president of the European Council of Jewish Communities. Bleich lost some of his communal positions in 2019 following sexual abuse allegations, according to the blog Frum Follies.

In the 2019 presidential election, he backed former President Petro Poroshenko who was defeated by Zelensky.

====

You remember from yesterday’s post, the Petro Poroshenko was allegedly in cahoots with President Joe Biden, to basically clear tens of millions of stolen funds from Ukraine to the United States.

If you don’t remember, watch THIS.

====

On Petroshenko’s Wiki page HERE, we also learn this:

On December 20, 2021, Petro Poroshenko was charged with high treason in the case of the supply of coal from the part of Donbass not controlled by Kiev in 2014-2015.

Pay attention: that’s the same ‘part of Donbass’ that again is at the centre of this war with Russia. And the timing of Poroshenko’s charges – just 2 months before war broke out – is significant.

And it’s also significant that if Poroshenko actually goes on trial, then FOR SURE more of his links with totally corrupt US President Joe Biden will start to be made public.

Now, we’re starting to see another possible motive, for why Joe Biden et al actually really WANT a war in the Ukraine, right now, despite all their lies about wanting peace.

====

Petroshenko has also been pouring fuel on the flames of the situation in Donbass for years.

Another snippet from Wikipedia:

Already during his election campaign (in 2014), Poroshenko stated that he did not intend to negotiate with the “separatists” in the Donbass, since they did not represent anyone: “We must restore law and order and sweep the terrorists from the streets”.

Petroshenko was also a poster-child for the sort of aggressive ‘liberal policies’ that helped to create the wealth of the oligarchs, effectively by privatising what should have been national assets, then spiriting that wealth ‘off shore’.

And of course, all this was done in the name of ‘eradicating communism’ from Ukraine, the same way the national wealth and assets of the former USSR was pillaged when it broke apart in 1990.

====

At the same time, he did have a point.

The communists deliberately starved millions of Ukrainian nationals to death under Stalin, in an event known as ‘the Holodomor’.

That occurred between the  years 1932-1933, and an estimated seven million Ukrainians died. See more info HERE, and Google translate.

When you recall that the ‘Bolshevik Revolution’ was financed by Frankist bankers like Jacob Schiff, and had a number of ‘pretend-Jewish’ Frankists heading it up, perhaps we start to understand that Ukrainian anti-semitism is maybe not so black and white as perhaps we think.

But I digress.

====

The point is, throughout his years running the Ukraine, the corrupt Petrochenko was illegally bleeding the country dry with some help from his ‘buddy’ Joe Biden.

And at the same time he was doing that, Petrochenko was also introducing one law after another designed to ratchet up tensions with Russia, and to pour more fuel on the volatile situation of the Russian-speaking citizens of Eastern Ukraine, and make life as hard for them as possible.

(Read more specific details on his Wiki page, HERE.)

On April 20, 2019 – shortly before he lost the election to Vladimir Zelensky – Petrochenko:

“[B]y his decree “Issues of European and Euro-Atlantic Integration”, approved a plan on Ukraine’s course towards the European Union and NATO.”

Thereby crossing another of Putin’s major red lines, and setting the scene for what is going on today in the Ukraine.

====

Of course, the guy’s a puppet.

Like they all are.

But by following the course of action of all these ‘puppets’ over the years, we start to understand more about how the puppeteers behind them are pulling the strings to keep creating more of those useful wars-on-demand, that they just love so much.

And it can’t be stressed too much, that Joe Biden and Petrochenko were caught actively collaborating by investigators in the Ukraine to embezzle money from the Ukraine and send it over to Biden and his family members in the USA.

And that yet again, the MSM is totally covering up this crucial piece of information.

====

Here’s another strange piece of information, that may give more insight into the war in Ukraine.

Around 8 months ago, in May 2021, Zelensky announced he was going to ‘go after’ the oligarchs who have been running Ukraine, including Kolomoisky, his former business partner and TV boss. Snippet from HERE:

“Nowhere in Emerging Europe, where countries have adopted the Westernising approach, are oligarchs as dominant as in Ukraine,” says Timothy Ash, a strategist for Bluebay Asset Management. “Sure, you have a few, but they do not absolutely dominate the economy as in Ukraine.”

Faced with such a rotten set-up it’s hard to push through any reform that threatens the oligarch ecosystem.

====

Now, let’s get back to the more obviously Jewish angle to all this.

According to The Forward:

In the previous conflict between Russia and Ukraine in 2014, Bleich accused the Kremlin of staging antisemitic “provocations” in Crimea and compared Russia’s behavior to that of the Nazis prior to the Anschluss invasion of Austria in 1938.

During that conflict, Azman founded a village for Jewish families displaced by Russia’s five-year war against Ukraine in the eastern Donbass region. He named it Anatevka, after the village from “Fiddler on the Roof.”.

====

Azman and ‘Anatevka’ made headlines a couple of years back, for all the wrong reasons.

It came out that Trump’s legal advisor and fundraiser Rudy Giuliani was the ‘honorary mayor’ of Anatevka. It also came out that Giuliani had close ties to Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, “who have been indicted in the US for campaign law violations.”

Read more about Parnas and Fruman HERE, and then you can watch this weird video of Giuliani, Parnas and Fruman giving a ‘shout out’ to Moshe Azman:

====

Now, in another strange link-up with American politics, according to THIS article from the European Tribune in 2019, entitled: President Zelensky, a Servant of TrumpParnas paid Giuliani $500k to investigate Joe Biden’s dealings in the Ukraine.

Here’s how Reuters described what was going on HERE:

According to an indictment unsealed by U.S. prosecutors, an unidentified Russian businessman arranged for two $500,000 wires to be sent from foreign bank accounts to a U.S. account controlled by Fruman in September and October 2018.

The money was used, in part, by Fruman, Parnas and two other men charged in the indictment to gain influence with U.S. politicians and candidates, the indictment said.

====

Now, let’s zoom back up to 2022, and the conflict in Ukraine, to see what other connections we find.

EXHIBIT 1: CHABAD RABBIS IN THE UKRAINE APPEAR TO HAVE FOREKNOWLEDGE OF THE WAR

This is a copy of email sent out by R’ Avraham Wolf, the Chabad rabbi of Odessa Jewish community three weeks ago, where he states he ALREADY spent $300k buying in food and other supplies for the wave of Jewish refugees he is expecting.

בס”ד
Dear brothers!

Thank you for the interest and concern of all of you for our situation in Ukraine.

The pressure in our community is undoubtedly very great.

Our role as emissaries and rabbis, is first and foremost in these hours, to encourage, strengthen, and relieve the pressure of the Jews in the community.

Of course none of us leave, even though Israeli citizens are leaving the country for fear of what is going to happen here.

Of course, we have been organizing for several months for other scenarios, Chas V’shalom, without publishing it, so as not to cause pressure and fears among the Jews.

Just to clear your ears, we organized and purchased about a thousand sleeping bags in case of Jewish refugees from the Kharkiv, Kiev and Dnieper regions who come to us in Odessa.

We also purchased 30 tons of flour, 20 tons of sugar, 30 tons of macaroni, 25 tons of rice and almost 40 tons buckwheat (gretzke).

These are purchases that cost us about $ 300,000, loans we took from local banks, all so that we could feed the hundreds of children growing up in orphanages, the hundreds of students from across Ukraine who live with us, and the hundreds of Holocaust survivors who live in the community’s old age.

In the coming days, Israeli security companies will come here to be added to the local security companies that already work with us, this is a vital need throughout the year but much more critical at such times, the costs are very high and no body covers them for us!

On the subject of the loans we took out and the lack of money for what we still need to buy and get organized surely needless to explain! The situation here is very difficult and we are, God forbid, facing collapse and we urgently need a lot of money in order to be equipped and properly organized for the difficult situation that lies ahead.

We still lack medical emergency equipment, protective equipment and a huge amount of food products for a long time for hundreds of Jews who can not leave the country and have nowhere to go.

In such difficult days we all with Israel are guarantors of each other and all over the world we must all unite and give a shoulder to our brothers who are in danger.

At the moment we are doing everything, so that we are not caught are not ready Chas Vechalilah, time is pressing and we must do it quickly before it is too late.

Thank you very much and Tizku Lemitzvos!

Rabbi Avraham Wolf,

the Rabbi of the Odessa Jewish community.”

====

EXHIBIT 2: Lots of children being taking out of orphanages, and moved across international borders.

This seems to be happening a lot. Here’s a few links telling different stories:

Heroic Chief Rabbi of Odessa Rescues 250 Orphans by Traveling on Shabbos

Snippet:

This past Shabbos, the Chief Rabbi of Odessa heroically rescued 250 orphan children from potential tragedy. Rabbi Shlomo Baksht determined that it was permissible to travel on Shabbos in order to flee the country.

==

Snippet from HERE:

CHISINAU, Moldova – More than 100 children made it out of Ukraine on Wednesday, thanks to a military-style operation that beat all the odds.

Many of the children live in Chabad’s orphanage in Odessa and the rest were sent by their parents, who stayed behind – in some cases to help younger children or elderly parents, and in some cases to fight.

====

These two articles are talking about 350 children in Odessa alone, in apparently Jewish orphanages, who both got ‘smuggled out’ in the last two days.

According to THIS, there were 12,500 ‘self-identifying’ Jews in Odessa in 2012.

Does it sound realistic, that in a city with a population of 12,500 ‘self-identifying’ Jews there would be 350 children in Jewish orphanages?

mamash don’t know the situation on the ground there, but this seems to be an astronomical percentage of the Jewish population.

====

EXHIBIT 3: A PERSONAL EMAIL QUESTIONING HOW THESE CHILDREN WERE ‘SMUGGLED ABROAD’ WITHOUT PAPERS

Before Covid 19, I wouldn’t be questioning every detail of these narratives.

But now…. I can’t help it. And it looks like other people are also digging deeper into the inconsistencies in the ‘official stories’. I got this over email:

The article says that the children were “smuggled” out of Ukraine. I studied International Law, and I am pretty sure that “smuggling” minors across international boarders is called “human trafficking” which when it comes to minors is a SERIOUS offense! Oh and 40 of the kids didn’t even have documents!

Try getting those kids back into Ukraine to ever see their parents again, what with them having been human trafficked out without documents….

====

EXHIBIT 4: BACK TO MOSHE AZMAN

First, take a look at this Tweet, with the strange recent words of Moshe Azman.

Who is he actually addressing, in this video?

====

Now, take a look at his Wikipedia page HERE.

These are the two snippets that caught my eye:

Snippet 1:

In October 2005, Asman elected him self as chief Rabbi of Ukraine. His election caused confusion in the Ukraine Jewish community especially to the Chief Rabbi of Ukraine Rabbi Azriel Chaikin, Chief Rabbi of Kyiv rabbi Jonathan Markovitch, and all of the rabbi’s in Ukraine. 

A group of rabbis from the Chabad Federation of Jewish Communities, headed by government Chief Rabbi Berel Lazar of Russia, attacked the appointment describing it as “illegitimate” and “insulting to the feelings of every believer.”

Snippet 2:

He worked as a secretary in “Beit Chabad for Russian Jews” in Israel during the Russian aliyah of 1991, helping Russian-Jewish immigrants adjust to Israel life in Israel and reconnect to Judaism. Asman was also help[ing] with bringing Ukrainian-Jewish children of Chernobyl to Israel and paying for their medical and psychological rehabilitation.

And of course, remember that strange village of ‘Anatevka’, supposedly set up to help refugees from the Donbas region of Eastern Ukraine back in 2014 – but which is now under heavy armed guard (at least as of 2019…)

====

I don’t know what all this means.

At least, not yet.

I’m just stringing bits of information together that feels to me to be connected, in someway, without quite knowing where all this is leading.

Every single time I get a ‘breakthrough’, where suddenly some new piece of info shows up that sheds light on the whole issue, this is the process I follow.

Let’s end this post by returning to Beryl Lazer, Chabad’s ‘Chief Rabbi of Russia’ and Putin’s very good friend.

====

In the first part of this post, someone on the ground in Kiev sent my contact this:

Also he mentioned yesterday that he thinks Chabad is taking over Ukraine. As it was not under Chabad control but Rav Bleich. But according to him Ben lazar is “coming.

So, let’s see what more we can learn about this ‘Ben Lazar’, aka Beryl Lazar, the Chabad Chief Rabbi of Russia.

====

First, we need to understand that just because someone is ‘from Chabad’, doesn’t mean that everyone in the organisation actually supports them.

Chabad is rife with sectarian struggles and divisions, about who should really wield the power in the organisation. (One thing I can tell you for sure: Chabad does have an awful lot of unexplained political power, in very many countries, including the USA, Russia and Israel.)

When it comes to the Ukraine, as well as the former Karlin-Stoliner ‘Chief Rabbi of Ukraine’, Yaakov Bleich, there are also (at least…) two rival ‘Chabad’ Chief Rabbis of Ukraine, namely Moshe Azman, and Azriel Halkin, referred to above.

This article from The Forward, dated 2006, explains a bit more:

The divisions within Chabad are partially a result of the sect’s success in winning over locals, at least among the wealthier strata.

The federation of Chabad rabbis that elected Haikin as chief rabbi is bankrolled by the Uzbeki-Israeli diamond dealer Lev Leviev.

Azman has cultivated his own sponsor in Ukraine: the arms dealer and media magnate Vadim Rabinovich. It was Rabinovich’s United Jewish Community of Ukraine that elected Azman chief rabbi last fall.

====

Notice something: Each one of these ‘Chief Rabbis’ is publically sponsored by an oligarch (which can also be spelt M-A-F-I-O-S-O).

Here’s a bit more about Lev Leviev:

  • He served in the communications directorate of the Israel Defense Forces.
  • “He received the blessings for success in business and personal support of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Schneerson for his philanthropic activities.”
  • He has close ties with Jared Kushner, Trump’s son in law.
  • He’s friends with Roman Abramovich – the same guy who Putin claimed had been swindled out of billions by Igor Kolomoisky.
  • He invests in property all over the place, including in the Israeli shtachim, and he also has diamond mines that were caught up in the ‘blood diamonds’ scandals.

And lastly:

Leviev is a major supporter of Jewish philanthropic causes and president of the Federation of Jewish Communities of the CIS (FJC), an umbrella body representing Jewish communities across the former Soviet Union.

====

If you go to the Wiki page for the Federation of Jewish Communities of the CIS, you learn this:

Current heads of the organization are:

  • Lev Leviev, President of FJC of the CIS

  • Rabbi Berel Lazar, chief rabbi of Russia…

Haaretz and other sources maintain that it is a pro-Putin organization established to counter the Russian Jewish Congress formed by Vladimir Gusinsky in 1996 and was critical of Putin.

====

So, we see that Rabbi Berel Lazar is also a close associate of Lev Leviev.

====

Meanwhile, let’s take a closer look at Moshe Azman’s ‘sponsor’, Vadim Rabinovitch.

After many different run-ins with the law for embezzling money ‘in big amounts’, Ukrainian Vadim Rabinovitch is stripped of his Ukrainian citizenship in the early 1990s – so decides to move to Israel. He also got banned from entering the USA, due to being an arms dealer.

But then, he bounced back, kind of, and as well as paying 10 million shekels to rebuild the Churva Synagogue in the Old City (one of the most important ‘shrines’ for the Sabbateans that came to Eretz Yisrael with Yehuda Chassid in 1700), he also paid for the massive gold menorah for the Temple Institute.

Snippet from HERE:

In Israel, he is known as a donor of the famous golden menorah weighing 800 kg to the Temple Institute in Jerusalem. After handing over the Menorah, the Israeli Knesset cleared Rabinowitz of all charges and gave him permission to enter the country.

Meanwhile, back in Ukraine, he founded the 1+1 TV channel which just so happens to be owned by Igor Kolomoisky, and which just so happens to have launched Vladimir Zelensky’s acting career (for TV…) and acting career (as a political puppet).

====

And of course, he’s also big into charidee, interfaith and Ukrainian politics, too, and even ran for president in 2014.

(He got 2.5% of the vote.)

Snippet from HERE:

Since 1997, he has been president of the All-Ukrainian Jewish Congress. In 2001, Rabinovich became head of the Step Towards Unity Forum of Christians and Jews and co-chair of the European Jewish Parliament.

Here’s who else founded the European Jewish Parliament:

The EJU group was founded in the Spring of 2011 by Ihor KolomoyskyiVadim Rabinovich and Alexander Zanzer.

====

So, let’s sum up before moving on.

Moshe Azman is connected to Lev Parnas, Igor Fruman, and Rudy Giuliani.

Moshe Azman is also closely connected to Vadim Rabinovich, who in turn is closely connected to Igor Kolomoisky.

Igor Kolomoisky lost a ton load of money and assets when Russia annexed Crimea, back in 2014. Igor Kolomoisky has also paid out a ton of money to create and arm the neo-fascist ‘Azov Volunteer Battalions‘ (amongst many other ‘Ukranian Nationalist’ groups, accused of killing Russian-speakers in Donbas.

Igor Kolomoisky is also closely connected to Vladimir Zelensky.

Berel Lazar came out strongly against Moshe Azman.

====

Meanwhile, Lev Leviev is closely connected to Berel Lazar, Putin, Roman Abramovich, Boris Berezovksy, Netanyahu and Trump, via Jared Kushner.

Now, let’s fill out the picture with Berel Lazar, a bit more.

====

You can see his (whitewashed…) Wiki page HERE.

Snippet:

Shlomo Dov Pinchas Lazar… better known as Berel Lazar, is an Orthodox, Chabad-Lubavitch Hasidic rabbi. He began his service in Russia in 1990. Known for his friendship with Vladimir Putin, since 2000, he has served as the Chief Rabbi of Russia, and chairman of the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia and Federation of Jewish Communities of the CIS.

Here’s some more interesting details from there:

  • Lazar met Lev Leviev in 1992, who introduced him to two more ‘Jewish’ oligarchs, Roman Abramovich and Boris Berezovsky.
  • He’s a US citizen who only became a citizen of Russia in 2000 (while retaining his US citizenship.)
  • In 2004, Putin gave him the ‘Order of Friendship’ honor, and then other awards, too,  for pushing interfaith activities.
  • “Lazar is an advocate of interfaith dialogue and sits on the Board of World Religious Leaders for The Elijah Interfaith Institute.”

====

I wrote a whole bunch of posts about the Frankist-Sabbatian theology of ‘The Elijah Interfaith Institute.

They currently have plans to build a massive ‘interfaith Centre of Hope’ right in the heart of Jerusalem, in the grounds of the old ORT building on HaNevi’im Street.

Read about that for yourself in their brochure, HERE.

====

Boris Berezovsky was another ‘oligarch’ who made a ton of money by buying up the former USSR’s infrastracture, when it all collapsed.

Here’s a snippet about him, from HERE:

Berezovsky helped fund Unity, the political party that would form Vladimir Putin‘s first parliamentary base, and was elected to the Duma on Putin’s slate in the 1999 Russian legislative election. However, following the Russian presidential election in March 2000, Berezovsky went into opposition and resigned from the Duma. Berezovsky would remain a vocal critic of Putin for the rest of his life.

He was charged with embezzlement, went into exile in the UK, spent many years calling for Putin to be overthrown, and trying to buy political influence in the Ukraine –  and then he died a ‘mysterious death’ at his home in London, in 2013.

====

Now, for the less whitewashed version of the ties between Putin and Beryl Lazer.

This Google translated snippet comes from a Russian-language site HERE, that mixes its information with some anti-semitism about Jews ruling everything. It’s unfortunate, but at the same time, if I was a non-Jew looking in on all this – and I knew nothing about Sabbatian-Frankists – I can see it’s an easy mistake to make.

I’m not endorsing everything said on that site, at all. I’m just trying to birur out the bits that seem to be correct.

Berl Lazar’s ascent to the top began with the arrival of Vladimir Putin in the Kremlin. 

To begin with, he granted Lazar Russian citizenship, in addition to American, Italian, and Israeli citizenship. Two weeks later, he was made chief rabbi.

Since 1992, the Chief Rabbi of Russia had been Adolf Shaevich, who led the Congress of Jewish Religious Communities and Organizations in Russia (KEROOR) and was supported by money from Vladimir Gusinsky.

Within this framework, Boris Berezovsky was perceived as not quite a full-blooded Jew.

In retaliation, Boris Berezovsky and Roman Abramovich initiated the creation of the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia (FEOR) in November 1999, which was headed by US citizen Berl Lazar.

In June 2000, the” all-Jewish congress ” of Russia was organized, at which the composition of participants was organized in favor of FEOR, and Berl Lazar was declared Chief rabbi of Russia. At the same time, V. Gusinsky was arrested.

====

While I was writing this, I got sent this video by another reader:

====

This video is about the ties between Putin, R. Mordechai Eliyahu and Beryl Lazar.

At minute 9:45, Lazar says the following (written up by my reader):

According to him R. Mordechai Eliyahu told him that it’s important for Lazar to strengthen the relationship (kesher) with Putin and once Lazar was invited by Putin to come on shabbat to his palace etc.

Lazar asked Eliyahu what to do because apparently there would be cameras there and he was afraid that if he was seen on camera on shabbat there would be a hillul Hashem.

Eliyahu answered him that according to him not only does he have permission to go, he must go (without breaking shabbat) to Putin and that whenever Putin calls Lazar to a meeting on shabbat he is hayav to go according to halacha.

====

The mind-boggling thing here is, why would the autocratic leader of Russia be regularly calling a Chabad rabbi over for ‘meetings’, anyway, to the point where this psak is even necessary?

====

I will stop there for now, it’s another huge, monster post, I know.

More bits of the puzzle will start to fill in soon, hopefully, but I think we’re all starting to see that this ‘war’ is really between a bunch of international gangsters who are really just interested in controlling people and property at any cost.

There is no ‘good side’ – they are all bad news, one way or another.

As I was wrapping this up, I got another email from someone with contacts ‘on the ground’.

Here’s what she told me:

I can’t get through to anyone we know in Ukraine. Yesterday we heard from 2 shluchim that their cities were bombed terribly, and they say the Russian military is deliberately targeting civilian infrastructure. So it’s either that or they are REALLY bad at precision strikes!

====

If this is true, it’s very worrying.

Whatever else is going on, we need to keep the Jews of the Ukraine in our prayers.

And keep our eyes peeled for more parts of this puzzle to show up.

You might also like this article:

 

We surely all know at this stage that ‘whatever’ is really happening in the Ukraine, it’s not at all what the MSM propaganda is telling us.

To be clear, there is a conflict going on there, and some people are being killed and hurt and displaced.

More than that, honestly, we don’t know.

In this post, I just want to start putting some of the ‘breadcrumbs’ out there, that are starting to turn up, that may shed more light on what is really going on in the Ukraine, and why it may be happening.

Again, to be clear – I don’t know any more than you do, at this stage, what’s really going on.

So, consider this post to be a collection of material designed to get the ball rolling, in ‘lifting the veil’ on this story, to see what’s really going on, with no pre-judgments.

I’m very happy to get more input and ideas as we go along – even from ‘weird’ sources. It’s only by comparing accounts from both sides of any conflict or disagreement that the truth really starts to shake out.

Let’s begin.

EXHIBIT 1: 15 Russian Generals ‘pray for peace at burial sites of Chabad Rebbes’ on February 21, 2022.

A couple of weeks’ ago, one of my readers sent me a link to THIS story on the Jerusalem Post site, which struck me as very strange:

====

Snippet:

Fifteen Russian generals prayed for peace last week at the Jewish cemetery in Lyubavichi, a Russian town credited as being the birthplace of the Chabad movement.

The military men, who visited the site on the 33rd anniversary of the Russian withdrawal from Afghanistan, told Jewish worshipers in the Smolensk Oblast village that they heard prayers are answered at the burial sites of revered tzadikim.

Those buried at the site include Chabad rebbe Shmuel Schneersohn, The Rebbe Maharash, fourth rebbe of Chabad, son of Menachem Mendel, the third rebbe….

[Rabbi Gabriel Gordon, Chabad’s representative to the western Russia village] hopes that the generals’ prayers will also be answered and that “a war will be avoided.”

====

I wrote about possible links between the ‘Barons Gunzburgs’ of Russia and the fourth Rebbe of Lubavitch – whose mother was Lea Golda, the great grand-daughter of the notorious Jacob Frank – HERE.

Here’s a short video of what the town of Lubavitch looks like, today:

====

So, I read that story from the Jerusalem post, from a good week before the ‘war in Ukraine’ actually started, and two possibilities surfaced:

  1. The story was made-up – and another example of the Jpropaganda writing ridiculous ‘puff pieces’ for the people and organisations who pay it a lot of money to do that.
  2. Or – the story was true.

I have to say, that last possibility struck me as being way more disturbing than the former, because it kind of suggests that Chabad is controlling the Russian army (or at least, no less than 15 (!) of its generals.

And even for me, that was a stretch.

At least, at that point.

====

EXHIBIT 2: Ukrainian ‘anti-corruption’ press conference from December 2020, clearly linking Joe Biden to the corruption of former Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko.

I got to this from the comments underneath a clip that האיש left underneath THIS post.

(Watch this fast, the first video I linked to has already been censored for anyone with a US IP – and I can’t seem to share the link on my site.

Search for videos entitled: Ukraine Releases Bombshell Information on Biden Today

Watch this here: https://odysee.com/UKRAINE-RELEASES-BOMBSHELL-INFORMATION-ON-BIDEN-TODAY!-MIRROR-THIS-ASAP_480p:9)

====

Long story short, greasy Joe (when he was Obama’s VP) and Poroshenko were basically embezzling millions of dollars together from the sale of Ukrainian natural resources, that was being ‘laundered’ through shell companies, and sent back to the Biden family in the United States.

The video above is long, but I have learnt a TON of information from it, that should have seen greasy Joe behind bars two years ago, as opposed to ‘President of the USA’. (It has very good English subtitles.)

The video contains a number of recorded conversations between Biden and Poroshenko, plus solid information that sets out how Biden, and his son Hunter Biden, were using companies like Burisma to basically steal millions from the Ukrainian people.

Here’s a few screenshots:

====

====

====

Another key figure mentioned by the Ukrainian corruption investigators is one Mykola Zlochevsky.

He’s another ‘Ukrainian oligarch’ politician, who made his money from Ukraine’s oil and natural gas.

(As a side point, I have a strong suspicion he descends from ‘R Yehiel Michel Rabinowitz, the Maggid of Zlotchov’, whose family tree is so very heavily distorted, there has to be a ton of secrets hiding out, behind that particular person.)

According to Wikipedia, HERE:

On 15 June 2018… Zlochevsky was accused of having illegally issued, while he was Ecology Minister in 2010–2012, oil and gas licenses to the companies that belonged to him.

According to Ukrainian authorities Zlochevsky is suspected of “theft of government funds on an especially large scale”….

A house resolution was introduced in January 2021 by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) to impeach U.S. PresidentJoe Biden for bribery allegations against his son Hunter Biden who served as a board member for Zlochevsky’s company – Burisma.

====

A lot of the embezzled money from the Ukraine was apparently flowing through the ‘PrivatBank’ owned by another ‘Ukrainian-Jewish Oligarch’, Ihor Kolomoiski.

I wrote a little about Kolomoiski HERE.

Snippet:

Legal filings from American prosecutors last year detailed how Kolomoisky allegedly used his control of Ukraine’s largest retail bank, PrivatBank, to loot staggering sums from Ukrainian depositors, and then used a series of shell companies and offshore accounts to whisk the money out of the country and into the U.S.

====

Kolomoisky owns the media company, 1+1, that turned Vladimir Zelensky into a star, particularly in his (acting role…) as the President of Ukraine in the show ‘Servant of the People.’

Then, CO-IN-CID-ENT-ALLY, Zelensky leveraged his popularity as ‘acting president’ to become the real president of Ukraine – just in time for this whole war with Russia!

Isn’t that fantastic?

====

Here’s some more things that you should know about Ihor Kolomoisky, from his Wikipedia page, HERE:

Following the 2014 Russian annexation of Crimea the Crimean assets of Kolomoyskyi have been nationalized.

According to Crimean leader Sergey Aksyonov this was “totally justified due to the fact that he is one of the initiators and financiers of the special anti-terrorist operation in the Eastern Ukraine where Russian citizens are being killed”.

In response Kolomoyskyi has filed a complaint against Russia at the Permanent Court of Arbitration; according to Russia, the court has no jurisdiction over the matter and that it will not participate in proceedings.

====

Pay attention to this.

It’s bringing into view another possible reason for this ‘war’ between Ukraine and Russia, as a power struggle between the ‘oligarchs’ (which can also be spelt M-A-F-I-A) for control of the area’s natural resources.

And that ‘struggle’ also involves corrupt US presidents including Biden – and Trump.

====

Kolomoisky is the guy who runs the bit of the Ukraine that was the stated ‘reason’ for Russia’s invasion:

On 2 March 2014, amidst the 2014 pro-Russian conflict in Ukraine, acting President Oleksandr Turchynov appointed Kolomoyskyi Governor of Dnipropetrovsk Oblast.

Two days later, Russian President Vladimir Putin described Kolomoyskyi as a “unique crook,” and said that the citizens of Dnipropetrovsk were not happy with his appointment as Governor of Dnipropetrovsk Oblast.

According to Putin, Roman Abramovich has been cheated by Igor Kolomoyskyi.

Putin claimed that Kolomoyskyi had reneged on a contract with Abramovich, saying “He [Kolomoyskyi] even managed to cheat our Roman Abramovich two or three years ago… Abramovich transferred several billion dollars, while this guy never delivered and pocketed the money.”

In April 2014 Kolomoyskyi offered a bounty for the capture of Russian-backed militants and incentives for the turning in of weapons.

He also is believed to have spent $10 million to create the Dnipro Battalion and also funded the AidarAzov, Dnepr 1, Dnepr 2, and Donbas volunteer battalions.

On 2 July 2014 a Russian District Court authorized [Kolomoyskyi’s] arrest in absentia for “organizing the killing of civilians”.

====

EXHIBIT 3: Tomer Devorah’s write-up about the ‘Azov’ neo-fascists in Ukraine, HERE.

Snippet:

One such neo-Nazi group that enjoys Ukrainian state patronage is the Azov Movement, one of the 30-odd privately-funded “volunteer battalions”, that does much of the frontline fighting with Ukraine’s army against the pro-Russian separatists in the country’s restive eastern region.

The Azov is not just known for their reputation of being ruthless on the battlefield but also for espousing a militant ideology that wreaked havoc in Germany in the second world war.

====

These ‘neo-Nazi volunteer battalions’ in the Ukraine were set up by the ‘Jewish’ oligarch Igor Kolomoisky.

(Just so you understand how totally two-faced and disgusting these people really are, Kolomoisky is currently also the president of the “United Jewish Community of Ukraine“.)

Kolomoisky’s protege, the formerly ‘Jewish’ Vladimir Zelensky, is the one who just freed a bunch of rapists and murderers from Ukrainian prisons, to go and ‘fight the Russians’, and who is apparently handing out guns freely to every criminal who wants one – but especially, these neo-Nazi gangs who effectively work for Kolomoisky.

Are you starting to see how some of these pieces are starting to fit together?

====

Before we move on, here’s a screenshot that lists some of the more interesting people who were apparently neighbors, in Kolomoisky’s Dnipropetrovsk Oblast:

====

Whaddya know?!

It’s the usual mix of Frankist-Satanists, Soviet, Russian and Ukranian politicians – including the current President, Zelensky – ‘Jewish’ oligarchs (also spelt M-A-F-I-A) – and the Lubavitcher Rebbe.

Let’s move on to some of the ‘breadcrumbs’ on the Russian side of things, now.

====

EXHIBIT 5: First-hand account about the situation in Kiev, sent to me by a reader.

“My husband is in contact with our Jewish driver from Ukraine. He is stuck with his family in Kiev now. All he is saying that they know the news from internet. And sending us pictures from the news I told him to only personal accounts. We all have the same news sources so no need for repeat.

He said there is a lot of crime going on because they gave weapons to all the criminals and low lives.

Also he mentioned yesterday that he thinks Chabad is taking over Ukraine. As it was not under Chabad control but Rav Bleich. But according to him Ben lazar is “coming”.”

====

When I got this email yesterday, that’s when I started looking into a few more things, now set out above, because the idea that ‘Chabad is taking over Ukraine’ sounded implausible.

Now, I’m really not so sure.

I wrote a little about Rav Bleich, the ‘Chief Rabbi of Ukraine’ a few weeks back, in a post called ‘The Real Holocaust Deniers’.

Here’s a snippet about the ‘Chief Rabbi of Ukraine, Yaakov Bleich:

In 2005 he was one of three contenders for the role of chief rabbi, alongside Chabad Lubavitch appointees Azriel Chaikin (appointed 2002) and Moshe Reuven Azman (appointed 2005). There is also a Progressive (Liberal/Reform) Chief Rabbi of Kiev and Ukraine, Alexander Dukhovny.

In 2018, Kievan weekly magazine Focus named Bleich among the most “powerful foreigners” in the country. In the same year, he was expelled from his own community, but continues to publicly refer to himself as the chief rabbi as impostor. Subsequently, in spite of the announced Herem, he returned to the synagogue; according to Israel journalist Shimon Briman, everything that happens is a struggle for influence between Jewish leaders.

In 2019, Bleich, together with Sviatoslav Shevchuk and Epiphanius I of Ukraine, held a prayer service for members of the OUN in the Jewish cemetery of Sambir.

====

The ‘OUN’ stands for the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists.

Here’s a snippet from HERE:

The Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists , was a radical far-right Ukrainian ultranationalist political organization established in 1929 in Vienna. The organization first operated in Eastern Galicia (then part of interwar Poland).

It emerged as a union between the Ukrainian Military Organization, smaller radical right-wing groups, and right-wing Ukrainian nationalists and intellectuals represented by Dmytro Dontsov, Yevhen Konovalets, Mykola Stsyborsky, and other figures.

The ideology of the OUN is described as similar to Italian Fascism.

====

Yaacov Bleich‘s Wikipedia page has just now been updated, with the following information:

During the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine, Bleich raised over 1.6 million dollars to help Jews in Ukraine from his home in Monsey, New York.

On February 27 2022, Bleich said:

“President Zelensky called me a few hours ago, while waging war, and asked the entire Jewish people to pray for the soldiers of Ukraine: ‘The Russians have more soldiers than us, but our soldiers have more determination than the Russians. We need your prayers for us to succeed, the Ukrainian president said.”

However, a lengthy March 2, 2022 article in the Forward about the long rivalry between Bleich and Azman for the title of “Chief Rabbi of Ukraine” concluded that “it seems that Azman has solidified his standing as the country’s chief rabbi”.

====

Let’s sum all this up, before we move forward.

Igor Kolomoiski, is an externally ‘Jewish’ Ukrainian oligarch and media mogul. Over the last few years:

  1. He shot Vladimir Zelensky to stardom in ‘Servant of the People‘, then financially supported Zelensky’s campaign to become President of Ukraine.
  2. He embezzled millions and millions of dollars, especially via his now nationalised ‘PrivatBank‘.
  3. PrivatBank’ was also one of the vehicles used by Mykola Zlochevsky to launder embezzled money for himself, and current US President Joe Biden (who literally encouraged Putin to start this war, when he said there would be no military pushback, only ‘sanctions’, that Putin doesn’t care about.
  4. When he’s not being the president of the United Jewish Community of Ukraine, he is spending tens of millions of dollars arming Ukrainian neo-nazi groups like the ‘Azov Battalion’, amongst many others.
  5. In July 2014 a Russian District Court authorized [Kolomoyskyi’s] arrest in absentia for “organizing the killing of civilians”.
  6. These murdered Russian civilians are the publically-stated reason stated by Putin for beginning the war, invading the Donbass region of Ukraine, and cleaning up the ‘neo nazi’ groups in the Ukraine.
  7. Kolomoiski’s protege, Zelensky, gave the order to release a bunch of murderers and rapists to ‘fight the Russians’, and also gave the order to hand out guns to these ‘volunteer battalions’ of neo-Nazis, funded by the self-same Kolomoisky.
  8. American-born R’ Yaakov Bleich has been battling it out with Chabad’s Moshe Azman to be recognised as the ‘Chief Rabbi of Ukraine‘ for years.
  9. Bleich also has weird links to Ukrainian fascist groups, including the Organisation of Ukrainian Nationalists; is currently fundraising for Ukrainians to fight the Russians, and is apparently acting as a spokesman for Kolomoisky actor, Zelensky.

====

Man, this is turning into a monster post!

And I still didn’t get to Berel Lazar, and the Russian / Chabad angle to all this.

EXHIBIT 6: JPOST ARTICLE FROM 2015, QUOTING BLEICH DISSING BEREL LAZAR AND SUPPORTING KOLOMOISKY

There seems to be more unexplained links between Kolomoisky and Yaakov Bleich.

See the full thing HERE, snippet below:

The Jewish community of Dnepropetrovsk, in which Kolomoisky is a central figure, has been vocal in its support of the current war effort, collecting donations for wounded soldiers in its schools and taking a nationalist public line….

Some Ukrainian Jews have expressed anger at Russian Chief Rabbi Berel Lazar,who is known as a strong supporter of President Vladimir Putin.

“Kolomoisky and Zissels are not pro-Bandera but they are [in favor of a] democratic Ukraine just like the rest of the Jewish community,” Chief Rabbi Yaakov Dov Bleich told The Jerusalem Post.

“The Russians are still living under the illusion that the all Ukrainians are Banderistas and fascists.

People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. I really think that the Russians aren’t the ones to lecture Ukraine and Ukrainians about fascism, especially since they were the ones that signed the pact with the devil [Nazi Germany] and started World War II… and even today they are still glorifying Stalin,” Bleich said.

====

Remember, this article is from March 2015 – almost exactly 7 years ago.

Yet, it could have been written this morning.

That’s kind of uncanny.

This is getting too long to do ‘in one shot’, I think.

So in the second part of this post, we’ll turn our attention to Berel Lazar, Moshe Atzmon – and rumors of child trafficking across national borders.

But we made a lot of progress today, even though so much is still hidden in the mists.

More of the real people and the real issues behind the mess in the Ukrainian are starting to surface.

And once again we can see that whatever else, the MSM is lying to us about everything.

Like they always do.

We are coming to that point in time where we all need to draw a line in the sand.

***UPDATES BELOW***

On one side of that line is ‘good’; and on one side of that line is ‘bad’.

And where we find ourselves, in relation to that line, is really the only thing that’s going to count, as move into the next stage of this unfurling geula process.

On THIS post, I addended an email that a reader sent me, about Chabad setting up a ‘Chabad House’ in the Metaverse.

It was a very long post, and it’s very possible that you missed it, so I wanted to return to that topic again, and flesh it out a bit more.

Here’s what I got sent, over email:

There’s a crypto called Decentraland (MANA).

Basically you buy virtual land (some of it sells for millions of dollars) in the metaverse.
There are 2 big virtual land metaverses; Sandbox and Decentraland. The question is which will win out. Anyway, Chabad recently bought some virtual land on MANA and built a virtual Bet Midrash there; this is being hailed as the first virtual shul and gathering point for frum Yidden in the metaverse.
My first question was how much did they pay for the land there and who financed it, because it’s not cheap.
My second is now the metaverse is kosher? I’m disturbed over this.
MANA will probably be the big land metaverse overtaking SAND, considering Chabad bought there and they seem to have a good pulse on the direction things are going… I’m sending the article link below so you can find out more. When will the global metaverse Noahide center be opening next 😼?
====
When I go to that link on the Chabad.org site, here is what I read:
“The ultimate purpose for which these new technologies were developed,” the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory, taught, “is that they be used for holy purposes. … The fact that they can also be used for mundane purposes, and even things that are the opposite of holiness, is to facilitate free choice … and G‑d commands, requests and grants the capacity that ‘you shall choose life.’ ”

This is the same argument I used to hear from Prozac addicts, about how ‘God is the one who made drugs, and He wants us to use them.’

You can apply that argument to absolutely every bad, evil thing in the world.

Who made heroin? God did!

Who made guns, and nukes and tanks? Why, God did, silly!

Who made Active Denial Systems, and 5…G tech, that can literally smoke a man’s brains out of his head, instantly killing him? Why, God did!

====

God made EVERYTHING.

Ein Od Milvado.

That’s not a chiddush.

Our job is to choose against the ‘bad’ stuff that God made in the world, and to draw our line in the sand, against all this terrible, awful, soul-destroying technology that is really rooted in the deepest places of tumah.

That’s not me saying that.

The genuine Torah viewpoint about this ‘tech’, from computers on, and especially in relation to internet and smartphones and social media – has always been to flee away from it, as much as possible.

====

We forget, but there were so very many leading rabbis who came out so strongly against smartphones, and against ‘the internet’, and against family and home-destroying ‘Facebook’ and Instagram and all the rest.

But then, there was Chabad, telling us that:

“The ultimate purpose for which these new technologies were developed,” the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory, taught, “is that they be used for holy purposes.”

And Chabad are also frum Jews, don’t you know?

And if Chabad says its OK to spend all your time posting up pictures of your home life on Facebook, indulging in non-stop lashon hara and gossip online, totally neglecting your kids and husband to hang out on Instagram – and now, hanging out every waking hour in the virtual reality ‘Metaverse…’ – why.

Then all those other rabbis, who tore out their throats screaming about the dangers of internet, and the dangers of smartphones, and the dangers of social media….

Why.

They must just be backward-primitivos, that didn’t have the vision and wisdom of the Lubavitcher Rebbe.

Sigh.

====

I just got this email, from someone who frequently attends a Chabad shul:

I was scanning about metaverse….are you familiar with Rav Itamir Shwartz?

I wonder what he would say about a virtual shul??

He says technology is the 49 level of impurity. He said the 50th level is when a person totally loses his temimut – when he has lost his entire earnest yearning to have a relationship with Hashem.

I think virtual anything is the complete absence of connection, absence of a true connection, a relationship. Don’t you?

====

When I read this, I realised that it’s really time to stop beating around the bush about what is really going on here, and to draw a line in the sand.

Because this is how it’s been working for the last 50 years, that ‘frum Chabad’ are used to normalise the idea that it’s OK for religious Jews to do things that it’s really never been OK for ‘religious’ Jews to do, and then everyone else in the frum community follows their lead.

And that’s exactly what is going on with this ‘Chabad House’ in the virtual Metaverse, too.

====

This is the ‘Jewishvirtualreality‘ website of the people behind this project, HERE.

Here’s a snippet:

Rabbi Shmuli Nachlas of Toronto, Rabbi Yisroel Wilhelm of Boulder, Colorado, and technology-enthusiast Alex Gelbert have ventured into the metaverse to launch the first VR Jewish Center: the MANA Jewish Center in Decentraland.

“The rationale is very simple”, says Rabbi Nachlas, “Where there are people, there is Chabad. And wherever events are happening, we find the opportunity to jump in and engage people on their turf.”

“We always knew that if you can live on the moon, Chabad will be there to greet you,” says Rabbi Wilhelm. “We’re not on the moon yet, but now you can reside in the metaverse and Chabad will be there to welcome you!”

Alex, a technology and crypto enthusiast who owns the digital advertising agency Let There Be, is fascinated with the metaverse. …

“Decentraland advertises Lose yourself in an amazing, evolving world,” says Rabbi Nachlas. “We believe that the metaverse—like a physical synagogue, a school, a city—is a place in which you can find yourself. You are your soul, and the Torah will guide you to find the real you even as you float along as an avatar in the metaverse.

We are happy to have launched the very first Jewish Center in the metaverse and look forward to welcoming all bold and pioneering Jewish organizations to join us as we develop Jewish experiences in virtual reality.”

====

You see what I mean?

Chabad is ‘normalising’ this totally un-human and un-Godly ‘virtual reality’, they are the first ones to jump into the boiling bath, so that other ‘bold and pioneering Jewish organisations’ will follow.

And that is what will happen, unless people like you and me draw a line in the sand and say ad kan!!!

And no further.

====

I went to take a look at Alex Gelbert’s company, Let There Be, to see if I could learn a little more about this enthusiastic advocate of ‘Jewish Virtual Reality’ in the orthodox world.

The company specialises in making promo videos for ‘healthcare education’.

They do a lot of work for Pfizer, amongst others, and hey, looky there!

They also put a video together for HP, to ‘educate’ about the coming Internet of Things.

====

What a CO-IN-CID-ENCE!

So, now I went to find out how much a ‘virtual plot of land’ costs in Decentraland.

I learn that real estate developers recently paid $1 million REAL dollars to develop a ‘virtual mall’ there called the MetaJuku Mall.

I know, this sounds totally unbelievable and incredible to most sane people out there, but watch this, to see just how mad this ‘virtual reality’ reality is becoming:

====

Marc Zuckerberg is quoted as saying that the Metaverse is basically the next big thing, continuing the ‘advances’ started by PCs and then developed further by smartphones….

Doesn’t that say it all, really?

====

The dark side of investing in a ‘virtual life’ where you basically just put your soul-power into a man-made ‘SIMS world’ that is empty of God isn’t hard to find.

Like all video games and online escapism, people are getting addicted to being ‘in the Metaverse’.

Then, there are growing problems like this, from HERE:

Last summer, Allen Roach saw something that really disturbed him: His then-11-year-old son, Peyton, used a sword to slice off the arms and legs of characters in a virtual reality medieval fantasy game, Blade & Sorcery, then threw the dismembered digital bodies off a bridge.

Sure, it all happened in VR. But for Roach — who spotted this gory scene while monitoring his son’s VR gaming on a computer screen that mirrored what Peyton was doing with an Oculus Quest 2 headset — it felt uncomfortably real.
====

Then, there are the very real, VERY worrying spiritual-philosophical aspects of all this.

This tweet gives you an idea – really just the tip of the iceberg – of the scope of this problem:

====

This is not the time or place to go into this idea in detail, but ‘the Metaverse’ is basically building a nihilistic, atheistic, ‘buddhist’ alternative reality, where the mind can’t tell the difference between ‘real or fake’, ‘up or down’, ‘good or bad’….

And THIS is where Chabad is being used to encourage other frum Jews to hang out in?!?

Really?

====

In the article on chabad.org that’s linked above, we find a lot of ‘high ideals’ about reaching Jews wherever they may be.

But just like the idea that all technology can and MUST be used for the good, there is an obvious flaw in this argument:

Hey, you want to spend time in a brothel? No problem!!! We’ll open a Chabad house there, to help guide you back home when you’re ready…
Hey, you want to become a 33rd degree Grand Wizard in a (devil-worshipping…) Freemasonry Lodge? No problem!!! We’ll send some guys along with you to join the Lodge, so you have someone to daven mincha with when you’re done slaughtering the babies….
Hey, you want to immerse your soul in the most tumah-dik spiritual state imaginable – a totally ‘made up’ world, where you spend most of your waking time totally in your head, and disconnected from God’s real world, and our real-world mission and mitzvoth?
No problem!!!
We’ll spend a bunch of cash opening up a virtual ‘Chabad House’ there, in the ‘Metaverse’, so you can kid yourself that what you’re doing is actually A-OK, and no problem at all, from a Jewish perspective.
====

Halacha says you can’t even mention Hashem’s name in an unclean place.

And genuinely frum Jews (at least try to…) abide by halachot.
====

We have been here before.

And the last few times, we failed this ‘technology test’ really badly.
But now, with all this Metaverse stuff that Chabad is trying to ‘normalise’ and make OK – we have to draw a line in the sand, and start to reclaim our souls out of this ‘alternative reality’ where anything goes, and there are no rules, no halachas, no mitzvahs and no Hashem, God forbid.
Let me end this with two stories.
====

Story 1: Happened in a Chabad shul on Purim three years ago, before Covid began.

That shul was being run by a Chabad couple who were personally very nice, and trying to serve the community with mesirat nefesh.
Just before the megillah reading began, I saw the guy setting up some sort of screen and computer, at the front next to where the reader would be leyning from Megillah Esther.
He stood up, and explained that Chabad had put together a ‘cartoon’ of the Megillah story, that would be running while they were leyning, ‘to keep the kids focussed on what was going on’.

I ran out of the shul then, and haven’t gone back.

====

Story 2: Concerns someone I used to know.

She was a big fan of Facebook, and was having a go at me for not ‘being on Facebook more’, 12 years ago, so my family could be more ‘in touch’ with their cousins abroad.

When I told her I didn’t think it was a good idea for frum Jews to be on Facebook, for any reason, she snapped back that she was doing a lot of mitzvahs on Facebook.

Like what?

Like, when someone gets sick, we put that up on Facebook so more people can say tehillim for them, she responded.

====

Recently, she got divorced.

She was so busy ‘doing mitzvahs’ on Facebook and Instagram, she ran out of time to cook supper for her kids, or spend quality time with her husband.

(Let’s not even ask how much time she was spending ‘reciting tehillim for sick people’, I think you can already guess.)

It was quite a shock when that happened, as she always had stunning pictures up on Facebook of her 5 star Pesach Seder Table, and all that.

But it seems, she was mamash living in virtual reality.

And sooner or later, you pay a huge spiritual price for that.

====

PS: Someone just sent me this, a link to this on the chabad.org website:

====

It’s an 8 minute long rant, where he basically just keeps saying ‘the Toyrah Oyr’ is telling us we all need to listen to Rovs and doctors, who are telling us we must get ‘vaccinated’, and we have no right to do our own research, or to come to our conclusions.

He literally says this:

“You have no ownership over your body to begin with.”

At the end of this rant, he seems to be suggesting that anyone who questions the rabbonim and mainstream doctors who are pimping the Covid shots (aka ‘conspiracy theorists’) are mentally ill.

Really, please go and listen to at least the first two minutes of this, so you can hear how he sounds while he’s saying this.
====
Here’s what my correspondent added:
If you look Rabbi Braum up on Wiki you read:
“Eligibility as community rabbi

Several rabbis associated with Rabbi Osdoba have stated that Rabbi Braun is not qualified to serve as a community rabbi.

Rabbi Braun’s rabbinical ordination has also come under scrutiny; some have questioned the legitimacy of his ordination, however after reviewing objection brought by Rabbi Osdoba, the arbitration panel (Zabl”a) ruled that Rabbi Braun’s rabbinic ordination is valid, stating:

“The semicha is a kosher semicha, it is not forged. Therefore this remains an absolute semicha… In light of the above, it is clear that Rabbi Yosef Shaya Braun shlita was elected in accordance with halacha. The entire public must honor him and all the other rabbis of the community must cooperate with him,etc., etc.”

====

Rabbi Braun is apparently the Mara D’Asra of Crown Heights.

Which makes his comments about the Torah saying that ‘people have no ownership over their own bodies’ even more disturbing.

I have never heard this idea in my life.

If anyone out there can help to shed some light on where in the Torah it’s meant to say this, as Rabbi Braun is claiming, I’d be very grateful.

And so, the birur continues.

====

UPDATE:

I got this from a reader:

From a quick count on the wiki page, it looks like Chabad.org was the 16th website ever created. Just after bloomberg.com

That’s pretty impressive, hey!
====
Here’s another snippet about Chabad and the internet, from HERE:
In 1988Yosef Yitzchak Kazen, a Chabad rabbi, began creating a Chabad-Lubavitch presence in cyberspace. With the advent of computer communication technology, Kazen recognized its potential for reaching an almost limitless audience, unlimited by geographic and other constraints.
Kazen digitized thousands of documents into what became the world’s first virtual Jewish library, and enabling thousands of people to learn about Judaism for the first time.
Chabad.org served as a model for other Jewish organizations that created their own educational websites.
====
This snippet, from HERE, explains what the internet actually looked like, back in 1988:
In 1988, the total number of computers connected to the Internet ranged from 65,000 to 70,000 machines.
Although the Internet was already about 15 years old at the time, it was primarily used in academic, military, and government structures.
====

So, in 1988, the internet was being used in ‘academic, military, and government structures’ – and Chabad.

Doesn’t that strike you as unusual?
(Maybe, not so unusual, given the high levels so many Chabad chassids apparently had in very senior positions within the Pentagon…. which again, doesn’t that strike you as unusual?)
====

Here’s a snippet about Chabad’s internet ‘rabbi’, Yosef Yitzhak Kazen:

Yosef Yitzchak Kazen (1954 – 1 December 1998),was an American Chabad-Lubavitch Hasidic rabbi. He is known for creating and running Chabad.org in 1988, before the World Wide Web existed.
(Emphasis mine.)
Doesn’t this strike you as strange?

BEFORE the ‘World Wide Web’ even existed, Chabad.org is online?

Really?

====

History will judge whether all this ‘technology’ really is the force for kedusha Chabad claims it is.

It’s really a discussion about koshering a pig.

If a pig is the only thing available to eat, then it’s permitted for pikuach nefesh.

But that doesn’t mean the pig becomes kosher.

(And we didn’t even really get to the end of this story, yet, to see where all this ‘tech’ is actually leading.)

====

Here’s what happened to Rabbi Kazen:

====

You might also like this article:

This is going to be one of my more ‘out there’ posts.

And if you’ve been following my blog for a while, that probably tells you that you are in for quite a ride.

The story begins with Chaim Walder’s suicide note, which you can see below:

As part of this apparently never-ending quest of trying to figure out what on earth is going on in the Jewish world, I decided to try and see if I could find out more details about ‘Rabbi Yehuda Silman’.

He is one of the Bnei Brak rabbis who together with Sariel Rosenberg put out a ‘psak’ telling the chareidi public this:

 

 

====

English snippet from HERE:

“If the allegations against him are true, it is prohibited to read these books,” the rabbis wrote, adding that one should not read books by an author who is thought to have committed something indecent, as “reading his books is like supporting these acts.”
Despite the accusations not being confirmed, and Walder denying all accusations against him, one should not read these books before the situation is resolved, the rabbis stated.
====
In his apparent suicide note, which to me, at this stage, appears genuine, Walder wrote this:

“I have gone to summon Yehuda Silman and Shmuel Eliyahu to a din Torah in shemayim (Heaven).”

I already knew that Sariel Rosenberg – mentioned in the Jpost report, referenced above – was ‘suspect’ – he was the key figure who ‘excommunicated’ Rav Berland and the whole Shuvu Banim community, based on the false testimony of just a single witness – that same guy who popped up everywhere in the media – and without hearing Rav Berland’s side of the story at all.
Does any of this sound familiar?
====
And then, Yehuda Silman jumped on that particular bandwagon, and also ‘signed on’ the excommunication note determined by Sariel Rosenberg’s disgraceful mockery of a true Beit Din.
When it came out that this decision had been made on the basis of a single (false witness’s) testimony; and in the absence of hearing Rav Berland’s side, leading other dayanim including Shimon Badani publically called out what had happened.
But of course, by then the ‘excommunication’ had already done what it was designed to do – namely, totally isolating the Rav and his community from the religious world, shortly before the police swooped in to get the Rav back in prison literally a week before ‘Covid 19’ kicked off in Israel.
====
So, I already knew these two gentlemen were suspect, when I started feeling out what ‘family connections’ they might actually have, that could help to fill out more of the real picture, of what is really going on here.

Honestly, I didn’t get very far, because almost immediately, I hit this guy, a Chabad mesichist and maths professor, by the name of ‘Shimon Silman’:

====

I highly recommend you watch and listen to the whole clip, so you start to get a feel for the true philosophy, and reach, of Chabad.

(Professor Silman is talking to R’ David Cohen. We will get to him in a minute.)
The two are discussing Prof Silman’s new book (published 2010) entitled:
Here’s a snippet from the book description on Amazon:
Scientific Thought in Messianic Times is a major treatise, seventeen years in the making, covering a wide range of topics in Torah, science and the Messianic Era.

It is based on the lectures delivered at the annual Moshiach and Science conferences of the Rabbi Yisroel Aryeh Leib Research Institute on Moshiach and the Sciences since 1992.Some of the general areas covered are:

The convergence of faith and intellect; Creation and the concept of intelligent design; History of major developments in Chassidic philosophy and modern science; Complete coverage of the concepts of Moshiach and the Messianic Era; 
Extensive documentation of the global Swords Into Plowshares phenomenon.

The book includes sections based on the lectures of prominent Jewish scientists including:

Dr. Naftali Berg
Prof. Herman Branover
Dr. Arnie Gotfryd
Dr. Tsvi Saks
Prof. Alvin Radkowsky
Prof. Levi Reiter

====

Rabbi Yisroel Aryeh Leib – aka Mark Gurari – was the last Rebbe’s younger brother, who was pursuing a PhD in Liverpool University in Theoretical Physics, when he died in 1952.

You can download one of his two papers about ‘eigenvectors’ (full of mathematical equations) HERE.

The Rebbe apparently lied to his mother for months, that his younger brother was still alive, and even had forged notes written in his name, so his mother wouldn’t suspect he was dead.

It’s small details like this that have always disturbed me about Chabad, even before we arrived at all the research of the last two years. Apparently, Mark Gurari wasn’t ‘religious’, and apparently he is buried in the Tsfat cemetery.

Also, according to THIS comment thread:

Mrs. Dalia Roitman [is] the daughter of R. Leibel Schneerson (aka Mark Gurari) [and] has 2 sons one is called Ariel (after his grandfather) and I do not remember the name of the other.
They are not observant Jews.
While the rebbe was sick in the period of 1992-1994 an Israeli reporter tracked down the family.Under questioning Rav Halperin of Beth Israel in Jerusalem said that the kids could eventually assume their rightful place in the Chabad leadership!

====

According to another commentator on that same thread:

Roitman as well as Mrs. Dalia are both scientists at the Weitzman [sic] Institute in Rehovot. They are divorced. She may have married since.

That thread was written 16 years ago, back in 2005. As of now, the only ‘Roitman’ at the Weizmann Institute of Science is this guy, who may or may not be related:

====

Anyway, I’m sitting there listening to the Prof Silman name drop the ‘Melech Moshiach, the Rebbe’ literally tens of times (in 2011…), when around the 12 minute mark, he mentions one of the Rebbe’s closest chassid-scientists, a guy called Dr Naftali Berg.

What I hear next literally has my mouth hanging agape, in amazement.

Snippet:

Before [Prof. Alvin Radkowsky] moved to Israel, a friend of his named Dr Naftali Berg, who was a personality in himself, who is also featured in this book, er. He was the director of the Army Research Laboratory, um, also used to be known as the Harry Diamond Laboratory, um, the Defense Department, the Pentagon Laboratory.

So, he was the Director of the Advanced Technology Office, this Dr Berg….he also joined our organisation and he gave lectures at our conferences for a couple of years, until he passed away.”

====

I type in ‘Harry Diamond Laboratory‘ to see what comes up, and I get to the Wikipedia page, where I learn this:

Snippet:

In 1972, Jack Anderson reported that HDL was working on “short-time-span control of human behavior“, which Anderson characterized as “Experiments to control human behavior with science fiction devices“.

An Army spokesman responded that the research program was looking at alternative ways for crowd control.

In 1992, the Army created the Army Research Laboratory (ARL) by combining seven existing Army laboratories including HDL….

The Woodbridge site was closed in the 1990s, after the Army decided to stop electromagnetic pulse testing there.

In 1989, the commander of the HDL said that the decision to stop this testing was mainly based on the Army’s need to perform more powerful testing, something not appropriate for the thickly settled neighborhood around the site.

====

I almost fell off my chair.

Dr Norman Berg – apparently a Chabad chassid, close to the last Lubavitcher Rebbe – was the Director of the part of the US military that particularly focused on:

“[S]hort-time-span control of human behavior”; “Experiments to control human behavior with science fiction devices”; and “electromagnetic pulse testing”.

In case you are wondering what ‘electromagnetic pulse testing’ is, and why its so dangerous to human populations, take a look at this new video, below, with English subtitles, that caught a man being ‘pulsed to death’ on CCTV, while reading his bike around a neighborhood in Spain:

====

Snippet:

“La Quinta Columna analyzed a video in which an electromagnetic pulse causes the death of a man.

The video shows a glitch that occurs at the precise moment when the man falls straight to the ground.

According to Spanish researchers, electromagnetic pulses are seen as interference in-camera recordings when they occur.”

====

Sigh.

Now, are you starting to understand more of what these weird ‘speakers’ popping up everywhere in Israel, and elsewhere, can actually do?

====

Let’s get back to Dr Naftali (Norman) Berg.

I’m going to bring screenshots of the article from HERE, which describes exactly what Chabad Chassid Dr Berg’s lab was up to, back in the 1970s, when CIA ‘mind control’ projects like MK Ultra were going ‘underground’.

First, here’s a snippet from the Wiki page on MK Ultra:

MKUltra was first brought to public attention in 1975 by the Church Committee of the United States Congress and Gerald Ford’s United States President’s Commission on CIA activities within the United States (also known as the Rockefeller Commission).

Investigative efforts were hampered by CIA Director Richard Helms‘s order that all MKUltra files be destroyed in 1973; the Church Committee and Rockefeller Commission investigations relied on the sworn testimony of direct participants and on the small number of documents that survived Helms’s order.

In 1977, a Freedom of Information Act request uncovered a cache of 20,000 documents relating to MKUltra, which led to Senate hearings….

In December 2018, declassified documents revealed that the CIA made six dogs run, turn, and stop via remote control and brain implants as part of MKUltra.

====

Basically, Berg’s ‘Harry Diamond Labs’ took over where MK Ultra was forced to stop.

Experiments to control human behavior with science fiction devices are being conducted secretly at the Army’s high-fenced Harry Diamond Laboratories in Washington.

To perfect the electronic behavior machines, Army scientists are spending $50,000 this year and asking $200,000 over the next two years. Ultimately, human guinea pigs will be used to test the devices.

Although a classified memorandum in our hands specifies the tests are for riot and civil disturbance control, the memo admits the general purpose is ‘short-time-span control of human behavior.’

The control will be exercised through a devilish complex of flickering, steady and unseen light rays, audible sounds and other tones too high for the human ear to hear.

The main problem, the memo states, is that the ‘novel and unique devices-systems’ must be constructed so they will ’cause no permanent damage to target personnel’ and to innocent bystanders.

With this humanitarian thought recorded, the memo goes on to summarise the ‘ultrasonics, audible aversive stimuli, unique communications techniques and methods of speech interruption’ which make up the Army’s physiological-psychological studies.

==

 

TRANSLATED INTO plain English, the technical memorandum envisions such devices as these:

Flickering light of varying intensity which throw off the normal electric rhythms of the brain. This leads to confusion and can even break down the brain’s ability to control the body.

Sound outside the human hearing range, which can crippled a person’s ability to function.  Audible sound, some of it so loud as to cause unendurable pain, can have the same general effect.

Electronic sound devices which interrupt, distort or mask speeches by troublemakers at demonstrations.

While the Army memo complains that ‘the present state of development of sound and light devices is not adequate to achieve the desired objective,’ it notes hopefully that the potential workability of at least ‘two systems has been shown’.

By fiscal 1974, the art will be far enough advances to that the ‘development and laboratory testing of hardware (the behavior equipment) will be emphasized.’

When we contacted the Army to find out whether the tests were leading to a 1984 world of thought control, a spokesman pooh-poohed the possibility.

“This program is so limited,” he insisted. “Why, it’s just to see what the hell it takes to control a crowd as painlessly as possible. We think there may be a better way than billy clubs and pistols.”

====

50 years ago, the US Army was already perfecting its ‘Active Denial / 5…G’ ‘crowd control’ Directed Energy Weapon System.

And the guy in charge of that research was a Lubavitch Chassid called Dr Norman (Naftali) Berg.

Who could make something like this up?

====

If you go HERE, to the ChabadInfo website, you’ll find an article entitled:

Today Marks Rabbi Dr. Naftali Berg’s Yartzeit

Screenshot below:

====

Snippet:

In his famous lecture on “Swords into Plowshares at the Pentagon” at the Moshiach and Science conference of the Rabbi Yisroel Aryeh Leib Institute in 5753 (1993), Rabbi Dr. Naftali Berg (whose yahrtzait was last week, 27 Tammuz) spoke about the new program of dual use technology initiated that year as a Swords into Plowshares process.

In his words, “The main point is that we really see the revelation of Moshiach now that the administration is taking half a billion dollars per year and putting it into these ‘dual use technologies.’

It is certainly a fulfillment of the Rebbe MH”M’s sicha of a year ago [5752] that ‘v’chitzu charvosom l’itim’—‘they shall beat their swords into plowshares’—that the nations of the earth will take their military budgets and convert them into food production and other peacetime uses.”

====

Here’s another very pertinent snippet, from that same article on Chabad.info:

The [Technology Reinvestment Project] TRP began to be implemented by the Clinton administration in early 1993 with a budget of $927 million for the first year.

Competitions for TRP grants were conducted by the Defense Technology Coordinating Council, made up of non-military people from the National Science Foundation, the Departments of Energy and Transportation, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and the Commerce Department’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

The diversity of the council’s membership was meant to enhance the program’s technical expertise and to ensure that TRP managers were aware of recent technological developments in commercial markets and civilian federal agencies.

But the management and control of the program was assigned to the Pentagon’s Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA).

====

In other words, Berg’s research was taken forward by ARPA – or DARPA, as it later became.

You know, those cute former Nazis who recently brought us this secret nanotech, covertly put in all the ‘Covid 19’ shots that were developed with seed money from DARPA:

====

And this:

====

And this:

====

Sigh.

We’ve been lied to about so much.

I used to come across stories like the screenshot below, and dismiss them as the delusional ravings of anti-semites. Now…. I’m starting to re-evaluate everything, and everyone.

====

Let’s leave Dr Norman Naftali Berg for now.

I also went to look at what R’ Yakov David Cohen – the guy Professor Silman was talking to – is up to today.

He’s running the ‘One People One World Under God’ organisation (or at least Youtube Channel…), which a particular emphasis on making close links between Chabad and China.

Here’s one of his latest videos, talking about the ‘Israel Plan’ and ‘Solomon Forum’:

The bit that had me sitting up in my chair is where he mentions he is currently working out of the United Nations.

I did a bit more digging and here’s what I learned, from HERE:

Rabbi Yakov Dovid Cohen is the founder and director of Institute of Noahide Code (a UN NGO), born in Brooklyn, New York USA. Rabbi Cohen…was ordained in 1985 at the United Lubavitcher Yeshiva New York, and a graduate degree from Monash University Australia… Met with the President and world leaders…

====

Whaaat the heck?!

I go to the ‘Institute of Noahide Code’ website, and that’s where I watch THIS video (or at least, the first minute) where Cohen explains that the Institute of Noahide Code is an “NGO for EcoSoc“.

(This is a screenshot from their defunct Twitter feed:)

EcoSoc stands for the United Nations Economic and Social Council, who amongst other things is responsible for implementing the horrendous (depopulation….) Agenda 2030….

====

Once again, the mind boggles as to what is really going on here.

Once again, we find hardcore, mesichist Chabadniks at the very heart of this whole, hot mess.

And once again, I find myself yearning and yearning for the world of lies to finally and totally fall.

These Freemason-Frankists have been lying to us, and diverting us away from true God and kedusha for centuries already.

Tatty, it’s enough.

====

You might also like this article:

 

Let’s unpeel more of the ‘Frankist-Freemason’ onion.

You can read Part 1 of this expose HERE.

The main takeaways we’ll be focussing on in this post, is trying to trace more of Jacob Frank’s (aka ‘Jacob Benjamin Loeb Frankel’s) real-life descendants and relatives.

I also want to return to the ‘Bad Baal Shem’ of London, Frank’s father in law, who was known as Chaim Samuel Jacob Falk in London – and ‘Joel Baal Shem of Zamosc’, in the fake history we’ve had foisted on us for the last 200+ years.

I suspect this is going to be a wild ride…. Let’s begin.

====

One of the ways a ‘theory’ starts to turn into a verifiable ‘fact’ is if all the major details fit the theory.

The more we uncover the hidden reach of the Frankist-Freemasons within the wider Jewish world, the more that seems to be the case.

Let me give a pertinent example, of how these ‘small details’ are fitting the narrative.

For a long time, many people in the Jewish world believed that the portrait of the ‘Bad Baal Shem’, Falk, was actually a picture of the holy Baal Shem TOV – the ‘good’ Baal Shem.

On the Kotzk blog HERE, he explains how this ‘mistake’ came about:

The unsigned painting [of Falk] remained in the Goldsmid family.

At the beginning of the 1900’s British Chief Rabbi Dr Herman Adler gave a lecture about the Baal Shem of London and offered a viewing of the little-known portrait.

The picture was published in 1908 and was widely distributed. This resulted in people confusing The Baal Shem of London with the Baal Shem Tov of Medzebuzh.

====

We now know that ‘British Chief Rabbi Dr Herman Adler’ was a direct descendant of both Falk, (whose daughter married Jacob Frank) and of course, Frank himself.

====

In this screenshot, above, you can see that ‘Dr Herman Adler, Chief Rabbi of the Empire‘ is the son of ‘Chief Rabbi Nathan Marcus Adler’ – who we alredy fingered as being the grandson of Jacob Frank.

There is ‘Margola Shor’ in the screenshot, the real name of Jacob Frank’s mother, and we also have ‘Joel of Wronke’, aka Joel the Baal Shem of Zamosc, aka the ‘Bad Baal Shem’ of London in the frame too.

So, to put this another way:

The great-grandson of Jacob Frank, and the great-great grandson of ‘Chaim Shmuel Falk’, the ‘Baal Shem of London’, is the exact same guy who put his portrait into wide circulation in the early 1900s, where it accidentally confused for the real, good Baal Shem Tov.

Accidental, my foot.

====

These people know the true power of Jewish intentions and Jewish prayers, and they are expert at kind of ‘parasiting’ off of all of our holy intentions and yearning to connect to our real, true tzaddikim.

Throughout Jewish history, they have continually waylayed all that good, holy stuff – essentially, our yearning for Moshiach and geula! – with their evil, ‘false’ Baal Shems and ‘false’ messiahs.

This ‘mix-up’ with the pictures is just one more way they could siphon off all the good, holy Jewish intentions, and keep them ‘hostage’ on the side of bad.

====

Back on the Kotzk blog, we learn a few more important details about Falk.

Here’s a snippet:

Only around 2010 was it discovered that in all the articles written about the Baal Shem of London, no mention was ever made of his real name. According to the burial records of Alderney Road Cemetery his name is recorded as:

“5542 – 4 Iyar, died,  Morenu Reb Abraham Shmuel ben Morenu Raphael, buried 5 Iyar, Baal Shem.”

====

That’s very interesting to me, because another one of the family trees that I’ve been circling around the last few months belongs to one:

Rabbi Raphael Ziskind Cohen, Chief Rabbi of Altona-Hamburg-Wandsbek

If you go to geni HERE, you can read a whole discussion where some of the more honest genealogists on the site, like Samuel Royde, are calling out the obvious distortions and errors in his family tree.

For example, Raphael Ziskind Cohen’s wife is Tamar Falk.… (there is that name again….) But no-one seems to know how she fits into the picture:

====

You can read more about ‘Yehoshua Falk’ (1555-1614) HERE, on Wikipedia.

This is the snippet that drew my attention:

The German name was chosen to fit the Hebrew one: thus “Zvi” or “Naftali” went with “Hirsch”, and “Zev” or “Binjamin” with “Wolf”.

Those whose given name was Yehoshua, Josua, or Joshua had the second name of Falk, Valk, Walk, Wallik or Wallich….  The name Falk was thus not a family name until the 19th century, when it was adopted by those whose immediate ancestors had “Falk” as a second name.

Encyclopedias will therefore have several entries under “Falk”, where “Falk”, strictly, is not a surname. References to Rabbi Falk are therefore often via “Yehoshua Falk ben Alexander HaCohen” or “Joshua Falk ben Alexander Katz” or “Joshua Falk Katz”.

====

Wallich / Wallaces come up a lot in my research of ‘interesting people’, and it’s good to have a link with the name ‘Falk’, now, to help pin things a bit more.

It’s probably going to take me a couple more weeks of poking around to confirm or deny the suspicion that ‘Avraham Shmuel ben Raphael Falk’ is somehow connected to Raphael Cohen and his wife Tamar Falk, so let’s leave that for now, because there is more ‘lower hanging fruit’ to discover.

====

The Kotzk blog also brings a letter that was published by R’ Yaakov Emden, as part of his attempts to ‘call out’ the bad Baal Shem of London for his Sabbatean links, and demon-worshipping black magic.

The letter is from one of the bad Baal Shem’s followers, Sussman Shesnowzi, and is written to his son. It describes some of what Sussman witnessed in the London home of the bad Baal Shem, Falk.

You can read the whole thing HERE, but I will quote it in entirety, below:

“Behold, the light which is called “lamp” is a great candelabrum of pure silver with doubled and trebled lights, stacked above each other, with eight flowered branches coming out of the sides, forming the shape of holy letters.

With this menorah he performed an amazing miracle.

On Friday he poured oil in, the typical amount for Shabbos – but the lamp stayed lit for three weeks until he personally dissolved the holy thing with his hands (and the miracle ceased). This was a new thing from the Master of the Universe, even greater than the miracle of Chanukah, when the Menorah lasted for only 8 days.

On this night of Tuesday, the 8th of Kislev, we saw an amazing thing. During the month of Cheshvan until now he had secluded himself in his home near the bridge (London Bridge).

He was shut in for six weeks, literally without food or drink, sleep or lighting any fire – you wouldn’t believe it!

==

After the sixth week he commanded that a minyan of learned men should immerse in the mikvah, and at midnight we who had prepared ourselves, dressing in white kittels, met at his home. The holy man commanded the aforementioned kabbalist Rabbi Moshe David to write (something) in his ledger.

Afterwards, he commanded this Moshe and another member of this holy Chevra, Rabbi Yaakov, grandson of R. Meir Eisenstadt (author of Panim Meiros), and they each lit a large candle. Then he commanded that the group enter barefooted into his room, and behold, we saw the holy man sitting on a throne, dressed like an angel…

The godly Kabbalist Rabbi Moshe David, known as Rabbi Moshe Ba’al Shem, wrote a letter to our master Rabbi Jonathan Eybeschutz, the famous Chief Rabbi of Hamburg, and told him all these great things and wonders regarding this holy man (=Falk). So R. Yonasan applied to him the words from the Tikkunim, that Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai said, זכאה דרא דהאי רזי עיתגלי ביה, “This generation is fortunate to have such mysteries revealed.”

The letter continues:

“I am grateful that I have been received into this Brotherhood, who by their piety can hasten the advent of the Messiah…my son, be very circumspect, and show this only to wise and discreet men. For here in London, this matter has not been disclosed to anyone who does not belong to our Brotherhood.”

====

Here’s some of what we can learn out from this  letter:

  1. These bad ‘Baal Shems’ really could do, and were doing, ‘open miracles’.
  2. They had many pious followers, who truly believed that these bad ‘Baal Shems’ were doing things to ‘hasten the advent of the Messiah’.
  3. One of Falk’s ‘disciples’ was ‘Rabbi Moshe David’ – a known Sabbatean preacher from Podhayce.
  4. Another one of Falk’s disciples was ‘R’ Yaakov‘, the grandson of another secret Sabbatian, Meir Eisenstadt (the ‘Meir Panim‘.)
  5. Jonathan Eybshutz was apparently also a big fan of the bad Baal Shem of London.

====

Meir Eistenstadt’s brother was the false messiah and Sabbatean prophet Mordechai Mokiach.

Snippet from the Jewish Encyclopaedia, HERE:

Shabbethaian prophet and false Messiah; born in Alsace about 1650; died at Presburg May 18, 1729….His son, Judah Löb Mokiaḥ, an eminent Talmudist, died in Presburg Dec. 7, 1742; the latter’s sons were David Berlin and Isaiah Berlin, known also as “Isaiah Pick.

The Meir Panim himself was a supporter of a different Sabbatean prophet (and false messiah) named Leib Prossnitz, who he brought in to preach at his yeshiva – where the Meir Panim’s ‘adopted son’ Yonatan Eybshutz was one of his keen students.

Snippet from the Jewish Encyclopaedia, HERE:

Cabalistic impostor; born about the end of the seventeenth century at Brody, Galicia; died about 1750…

The impostor was excommunicated by all the rabbis of Moravia, among them the “Landrabbiner” David Oppenheimer.

In spite of all this Löbele found many followers among the Shabbethaians. He proclaimed himself the Messiah ben Joseph, and signed his name “Joseph ben Jacob.”

==

He had relations with the Shabbethaian Mordecai Eisenstadt [i.e. Mordechai Mokiach, Meir Eistenstadt’s brother) and with Jonathan Eybeschütz, and seems to have been especially influenced by the Shabbethaian impostor Nehemiah Ḥayyun. Löbele wandered from city to city in Austria and Germany, and succeeded in duping many persons, who supplied him with funds.

In 1725 the excommunication was renewed, whereupon he betook himself to Hungary. Emden relates that he died there among non-Jews.

Löbele taught the strange doctrine that since the appearance of Shabbethai Ẓebi God had surrendered the guidance of the world to the latter, after whose ascent to heaven the mission was entrusted to Jonathan Eybeschütz and to Löbele himself.

====

All this Jewish history is written by people who were covering up the truth, and who were linked in to the ‘Frankist-Freemason’ nexus.

But it’s interesting to note the ‘tone’ from this snippet about Leib Prossnitz, who obviously represented a rival strain of ‘Shabbteanism’ from the one favored by the writer (i.e. what became Frankism).

====

The Moses David of Podhyce, another famous Sabbatean prophet and ‘disciple’ of the Bad Baal She talked about above, is actually Moses David Meisels.

His father is Zvi Meisels of Podhyce, of the well-known ‘Meisels’ family, which also has a lot of skeletons in the closet, rattling around.

We’ll probably come back to them another time, because the person I want to focus on now is the ‘Yaakov, grandson of the Meir Panim’, who was one of the bad Baal Shem’s main disciples.

====

You know you are onto something when even the Jewish Encyclopaedia has two different entries for the same guy:

====

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve come back to the ‘Meir Panim’s’ family tree, in my researches.

I’ve known his descendants are in the middle of all this for a while, but I haven’t been able to ‘pin it down’ specifically.

Let’s see if we can move this forward, at least a little, now.

In this family tree from yesterday, where we made the ‘Gunzburg brothers’ link-up between Jacob Frank’s branch of the family; the branch that the Vilna Gaon descends from; and the branch that the Baron Gunzburgs descend from, you can see this:

 

I know it’s a little blurry, but it says this:

NAPHTALI HIRZ GUNZBURG (brother of Jacob Frank’s grand-dad, ‘SIMEON GUNZBURG’) > SHPRINTZE GUNZBURG > unknown daughter marries SOLOMON ZALMAN MEISELS > JUDAH LEIB MIRKES > unknown daughter marries MICHAEL EISENSTADT > MOSHE EISENSTADT marries FINKEL KALLIR.

Those same names – Gunzburg, Meisels and Eisenstadt – come up again and again and again, especially when I’m trying to pin down the people associated with the beginnings of Chabad chassidut.

====

HERE is the family tree on geni – rife with deliberate disinformation:

‘Jacob ben Eliezer Eisenstadt’  the Sabbatean disciple of the bad Baal Shem of London, Jacob Frank’s father-in-law, is conspicuously absent from this tree.

These are the myriad small ways these Frankist-Freemasons use to try and cover up the trail of what is really going on here, and who is really controlling the top of the Jewish community – in all directions – behind the scenes.

====

Unpicking this is going to take me a few more hours and days of poring over family trees and comparing one to another.

But here is what I can already tell you.

‘HaRav Moishe Eisenstadt, ABD of Kletz’ who marries Finkel Kallir – is also a grandson of the Sabbatean ‘Meir Panim’.

His son is none other than Benjamin (Eisenstadt) Kletzker (screenshot comes from the more dependable ‘My Heritage’ website, HERE.)

His daughter – apparently ‘unknown’ – happens to marry the Alter Rebbe’s grandson Baruch Klutzkar, son of his daughter Frieda Klutzkar.

Baruch’s brother is the ‘Aharon Zaslavski’ who is meant to the father of Rivka, who married the Rebbe MaHARASH (No.4) – and also, Rebbe Nachman’s daughter Chaya, in a second marriage.

==

Here’s the ‘official story’ of this family, from Chabad:

Rebbetzin Freida SCHNEURI (b. Leozna, Poland) married to Rabbi Eliyahu ben Rabbi Mordechai KLUTZKAR. They had two children:

* Boruch married the daughter of Binyomin KLETZKER.
* Aharon ZASLAVSKI from Kremenchug. He married Chayeh daughter of Rebbe Nachman.

Family book of Rabbi from Ladi, ref #13

====

This is what I wrote HERE, about Benjamin Klutzkar:

Binyamin Kletzker was another famous talmid of the Alter Rebbe, and has a lot of stories told about him, like this, from HERE:

Few Chassidim intrigue us as much as Reb Binyomin Kletzker.

His greatness was that he was a phenomenally successful businessman, whose every action and decision was influenced by and in accordance with the Chassidus he learnt. Those teachings permeated him to such an extent that quite often, to the shock of his associates, he would become absorbed in a thought of Chassidus in the middle of his transactions, reflecting on it for an extended period of time.

====

I’m pretty sure THIS is the same guy, R’ Binyomin Volf Klatzki Gunzburg, because it’s a standard ‘trick’ these Sabbatian-Frankists use all the time, to switch the descent from the mother to the father, or vice-versa, to try to cover up the trail:

====

Binyomin Vulf Klatzi Gunzburg is the first cousin of Naftali Hirsch Gunzburg, the dad of Gabriel Yakov Gunzburg.

You know, the grand-dad of this guy:

Baron Joseph Gunzburg (who was doing very similar things, at very similar times, to the 4th Rebbe MAHARASH of Chabad.)

Binyomin Vulf Klatzi Gunzburg is also married to the niece of the Vilna Gaon, R’ Eliyahu Rivlin.

====

And so it continues, round and round, until God finally has mercy on me, and finally helps me totally pin this down, with yet more massive bits of paper.

====

I didn’t even get to discussing the descendants of Jacob Frank.

(At least, not the ones I had intended to talk about.)

But let me leave you with this THIS, a link to the Habayitah blog from 2016, talking about how the freemasons in Jerusalem were using Zedakiah’s Cave for their meetings for a long time even before the State of Israel was formally declared, in 1947.

The Illluminati in ZedeKiah’s Cave Near Damascus Gate

Snippet:

Believe it or not but Jerusalem, more precisely Zedekiah’s Cave near Damascus Gate, has for years been the General Quarter for the Freemasons Order.

The order’s local chamber was “King Solomon’s Cave.” Members of the mysterious and secret group, established following special authorization from the Ottomans – who also had some members of the order among them – used to meet there, until the outcome of the War of Independence in 1948 prevented them from continuing.

Immediately following the Six Day War in 1967, the local order resumed its activities and meetings there.

I know some readers feel I am ‘going after’ Chabad, whatever that actually means, by trying to get to the bottom of our very tangled collective family tree, but in this post, I’m going to explain how the only thing I’m ‘going after’ is the truth.

Here’s how all this started, around two years ago, when the persecution and ‘trial by media’ of Rav Eliezer Berland kicked off again, in Israel.

I was starting work on ‘One in a Generation’ volume 3 – which at this stage, will probably never happen – when I got the idea in my head that I should try to pin down who exactly was running the State of Israel, so I could start to understand more of why exactly they were persecuting the Rav, like this.

Very quickly, I got deep into ‘Frankist-Freemason’ territory, and my mind started to be blown by what I was learning.

====

And then, I got to THIS strange post, on the Kotzker Blog, which quoted the notorious Frankist descendent Athol Bloomer describing how he believed he descended from Rebbe Nachman, thus:

“Rebbe Nachman of Breslov was married twice. His first wife Sashia of Brody (Alexandra Body/ Braude) was the daughter of the secret Frankist Rebbe Benjamin Ephraim Braude (aka Alexander Margoliot/ Sender Brody) of Sheklov. She was the mother of most of his children. His wife died in 1807 and he remarried soon after to Devorah Brody (Braude) a daughter of the Frankist Rebbe of Sheklov and his second wife Rachel Mayer a granddaughter of Rebbe Jacob Frank. In 1808 Rebbe Nachman disappeared with his new wife to Lvov for 8 months to await the secret birth of his son named Jacob ben Rebbe Nachman (BaRoN) who he left with the Frankists to rear. This son later used the name Yankel Baron…”

The writer then claims to be descended from Yankel Baron.

“Yankel Baron (b.1808 Lvov) married Bracha Zaslavski (b.1819) a daughter of Aharon Zaslavski and Chaya (b.1801) a daughter of Rebbe Nachman [i.e. he married his niece]. Bracha’s sister Miriam Chaya Zaslavski (1820-1860) married Michael Brennan (b.1820 Sheklov) a grandson of Rabbi Nathan (Nosan) of Nemirov the Chief Disciple of Rebbe Nachman. Michael’s father was Moshe ben Rabbi Nathan of Nemirov (BReNaN/ BRENN) who became a follower of the Alter Rebbe’s son Moshe ben Schneur Zalman [who had become the leader of the Jewish Catholics (secret Frankists)]. Moshe (b.1795 d.1865 Kilkenny Ireland) and his wife Sarah Auerbach (b.1807) (daughter of Adil and R. Yoska) was removed from the family tree and records of the family by the Jewish community…”

====

Let’s be very clear, that I got to this post right at the beginning of my search into ‘what was really going on’, within the Jewish community, and before I’d done all the tons of research I have now done.

And there was this claim, sticking straight in my face, that Rebbe Nachman was somehow directly connected to the ‘Frankists’ and even had Catholic-Frankist descendents??!?!?

At that point, I had a choice.

I could either carry on pretending that I’d never seen this claim, and just not check out it’s factual basis and accuracy – and then forever have that gnawing feeling that perhaps I was lying to myself, and fooling myself about something way too big to really ignore.

Or.

I could take a deep breath, and try to figure out what was true.

Because God’s seal is truth. And even when it’s our beloved way of life, our religious ‘beliefs’, our connection to a Rebbe who has mamash changed everything around for the better – we still need to know the truth, about who that person really is, and where they are really coming from.

====

So, that’s how I started to research this topic so seriously, that it has literally consumed the best part of two years.

And that’s why I’m telling you, that we are all in this together.

Very soon in my research, I noticed that ‘Breslov’ was being used to deflect attention away from ‘Chabad’, and their genealogy and family tree. Basically, nearly everything that was being ‘pinned’ on Breslov, and Rabbenu’s followers and descendants, usually without any basis, I was finding over there in real life, on the Chabad side of the equation.

That’s how I started researching that “secret Frankist Rebbe Benjamin Ephraim Braude (aka Alexander Margoliot/ Sender Brody) of Sheklov” that I’ve written so much about.

Athol Bloomer’s accounts are a potent mixture of truth and lies – and figuring out what is what has been quite the process.

====

While Chabad’s deep ties to Frankists and Sabbateans are becoming more and more obvious, I’ve continued to have that niggling question:

What really happened to Rebbe Nachman’s daughter, Chaya, and her marriage to ‘Aharon Zaslavksi’?

And for the rest of this post, I’m going to try to answer that question.

====

As I’ve been saying all along, the Jewish people is just one, big family.

There is good and bad mixed up inside every single one of us, regardless of our ‘affiliation’. This is not a question of one ‘group’ being 100%, unimpeachably ‘perfect’ and everyone else being wrong.

Every single person has work to do, to identify, refine and ultimately uproot their bad middot.

And that applies to Chabad, to Breslov, to the Litvaks, to the Sephardim – to absolutely everyone.

Just it seems to me, authentic Breslov people are way more honest, about the spiritual struggles that are really going on ‘under the bonnet’. They are actually engaging in that work of ‘fixing middot‘ a lot of the time, especially by way of regular hitbodedut.

And when you are engaged in the task of recognising your own bad middot, it makes it way easier to spot them on the outside, too.

====

So, let’s get back to Aharon Zaslavski, the second husband of Rebbe Nachman’s daughter, Chaya.

Here’s the basic background:

Rebbe Nachman, and Rav Natan, after him, were exceedingly careful about who Rabbenu’s children married.

With hindsight, I’ve come to realise that the religious Jewish community was so infiltrated by ‘secret Sabbateans’ and ‘secret Frankists’ of every stripe, at this point in time, that finding an upright spouse for your kid, amongst the families with yichus, was becoming an almost impossible task.

And make no mistake, Rabbenu also had ‘yichus’.

====

His paternal grandfather, Nachman Horodenka, was the nephew of the famous Sabbatian prophet, the Eshel Avraham.

Nachman Horodenka’s second cousin was the Chacham Tzvi – their grandparents were siblings, and they have the same great-grandfather, namely ‘Jacob (the Elder) Halevi Koppel Heller Frankel.

On Rabbenu’s maternal side, he was descended from the Baal Shem Tov.

In turn, the Baal Shem Tov was part of the wider ‘Isserles’ clan, connected to the REMA.

The infamous Shor / Gunzburg family of Sabbateans also descends from the REMA and /or, the REMA’s brother, Eliezer Isserles (I’m still unpicking all the deliberate mixing up… stay tuned.)

So Rabbenu’s family was mamash in the middle of that very strong current of ‘Sabbateanism’ that was still eddying throughout the whole of the Jewish community, and in the process of crystallising into ‘Frankism’.

====

The holy Baal Shem Tov came to ‘rectify’ Sabbateanism.

He took a lot of their teachings, their ‘more spiritual and miraculous’ approach to life, and he infused it with the kedusha required to sweeten it, as part of his new approach of chassidut.

Before the BESHT came along, there were a lot of ‘miracle workers’ and ‘Baal Shems’ – but they were using the names of demons to basically do black magic.

‘Black magic’, or ‘practical kabbalah’ is where you are trying to make something happen in the natural world, using unnatural means.

This can still result in ‘miracles’ – and it often did result in miracles, and miraculous ‘cures’ – but those miracles are coming from an impure place, and they run a very high risk of entraining the ‘miracle worker’ to the world of evil that he thinks he’s controlling.

====

Rebbe Nachman talks about this, in his story of ‘The Cripple’.

There, he explains that:

The [Demon] King now said to [the Sage]: “Because you are such a unique man, I will give you a book with all the families of the devils. There are spiritual masters who only know one family, and even that they do not know completely. I will give you a book with all the families….

….Later on, when the Sage reached his time to pass on from the world, he called together his children and commanded them, saying:

“I leave you with this book. You see that I have the power to use this book in holiness, and nevertheless I do not use it. I simply put my trust in Hashem, may He be blessed. Neither should you use it. Even if there be among you one who is able to use it in holiness, even so, do not use it, and rather, trust in Hashem.”

====

Conjuring the names of demons – even for ostensibly ‘good’ purposes – is a very risky business, spiritually.

And we see from this story, that the BESHT’s new approach was to replace all this ‘practical kabbalah / black magic’ of trying to ‘force’ things to happen in the world, with a faith-based approach of practical emuna, instead.  Of course, I’m oversimplifying, but the basic idea is that we accept God’s will, but also pray to God to change things and to ‘sweeten things’, instead of trying to take matters into our own hands.

It’s the difference between ‘hitting the rock’ and ‘speaking to the rock’.

====

So, the BESHT came out of that same family where so many of his relatives were the leading lights in the underground ‘secret Sabbatian’ movement.

He lived at a time where ‘practical kabbalists’ were working ‘miracles’ all over the place as ‘Baal Shems’ – or ‘masters of the name’. And the ‘names’ they were using for their miracles were the names of demons, as alluded to by Rebbe Nachman, in his tale of The Cripple.

I’m still unpicking Rabbi Nachman Horodenker’s side of the story, but I can tell you he descends from the same ‘interesting people’ I’ve been researching for a while.

Rabbi Nachman Horodenker lived at the time when Jacob Benjamin Loeb Frankel’s ‘Frankist’ movement was gaining steam across Podolia and Galicia – with literally hundreds of adherents who were RABBIS in their community.

At this point, I think R’ Nachman Horodenker was trying to split off from these influences by drawing close to the BESHT. And I think that’s also why he arranged for his son Simcha – Rebbe Nachman of Breslov’s father – to be raised in the BESHT’s own home from a very young age, even though Rabbi Nachman Horodenker was still alive.

====

So, Rabbenu was born into a family with a lot of illustrious yichus, most of which connected him straight into the heart of the growing Sabbatean-Frankist revival.

I am still in the process of trying to figure out the specific links, but I am certain that the Alter Rebbe and Rebbe Nachman were blood relatives, via their shared ‘Isserles’ connections.

And as we know, members of these ‘illustrious’ families all married each other, again and again and again, throughout history.

So, when I first learned that Rebbe Nachman’s daughter Chaya had married ‘Aharon Zaslavski’, who is meant to be the Alter Rebbe’s grandson via his daughter Frieda, I wasn’t shocked.

This marriage took place after Rabbenu’s death, and was Chaya’s second marriage.

====

Chaya’s first marriage was to Zalman ben Yaakov Yosef, of Zlatipolia.

According to the Breslov Research Institute’s book, Until the Mashiach, Chaya has one child from her first marriage, called ‘Nachman Chayales’. He married the grand-daughter of Shlomo of Karlin and Baruch of Medzhibozh.

(Like I said, it’s a very small gene-pool…)

Apparently, she then had three more children with ‘Aharon Zaslavski’, including:

Yechiel – who married his cousin Sterna Sashia, the daughter of Nachman Chayales.

Adil – who married Avraham of Kiniev.

And:

Rochel – who married an unidentified ‘Yitzchok’.

====

This is what I learned, all those months ago, before I knew just how ‘deep’ in the Sabbatean-Frankist parsha the Alter Rebbe’s family actually is.

So then, as a natural next step to trying to ascertain the truth of Bloomer’s fantastic claims about Bracha Zaslavski and Yankel Baron, I started looking into the family tree of Aharon Zaslavski, himself. And very quickly, I found myself in an historical quagmire.

This comes from HERE:

====

Stupid me, I thought it would be relatively easy to figure out who he was, and who his father was.

Two years’ later, I am still deep in that extended process of trying to figure it out, but let’s see where we get to, today.

Here’s the ‘official story’ of Aharon Zaslavksi’s family, from Chabad:

Rebbetzin Freida SCHNEURI (b. Leozna, Poland) married to Rabbi Eliyahu ben Rabbi Mordechai KLUTZKAR. They had two children:

* Boruch married the daughter of Binyomin KLETZKER.
* Aharon ZASLAVSKI from Kremenchug. He married Chayeh daughter of Rebbe Nachman.

Family book of Rabbi from Ladi, ref #13

====

Frieda Schneuri is meant to be the oldest daughter of the Alter Rebbe.

Her son is the ‘Aharon Zaslavski’ who married Rebbe Nachman’s daughter, Chaya. But if you look carefully, you’ll notice that he also married someone else, who strangely, is not mentioned in the ‘Family book of Rabbi from Ladi’, which chronicles the Alter Rebbe’s official family tree.

Aharon has another wife, called ‘Chaya Sarah Alexanderov (nee Shneuri or Schneourson)’.

And here’s where we are probably going to learn something very interesting.

====

====

THIS screenshot, above, comes from the MyHeritage site for ‘Rbzn Rivka Schneerson (born ALEXANDROV).

It names her parents as none other than Aharon Klutzkar-Zaslavsky and ‘Chaya Sara Debarmikder’.

Rbzn Rivka Schneerson marries the Rebbe MAHARASH, the 4th Rebbe of Chabad who we talked about HERE, and is the mother of the 5th Rebbe, the RaShab.

Now, we have a bit of a conundrum to unpick.

====

On geni HERE, we see this:

====

This names Rbzn Rivka’s parents as ‘Aaron Moshe Alexanderov’ and ‘Rbzn Chaya Sarah Alexandrov’.

That makes Rbzn Rivka the g-g-granddaughter of Jacob Frank(el), via her paternal grandmother Rebbetzin Leah Golda Alecsanderov (nee Broida).

If that’s all we discovered today, dayenu.

We already knew that the Rebbes’ families were blood relatives of the Eshel Avraham and Jacob Frank.

But it still doesn’t explain how ‘Aharon Zaslavsky’ – and his ‘secret Frankist offspring’ – totally fits into the picture, so let’s just try and figure this out a tiny bit more.

====

If you go HERE, you’ll see the geni entry for ‘Aaron Moshe Alexanderov‘:

====

This tree is based on the account of the Rebbe Rayatz (6th Admor of Chabad), who tells us that Reb Moshe Alexanderov, Aharon’s father, is the son of the Alter Rebbe’s favorite chassid, Rabbi Alexander ‘Sander’ ben Tzvi Hirsch of Shklov.

I’ve been piercing a lot of information together the last few months, and I’m 90% sure that this ‘Alexander Sander’ is the brother of none other than Baron Joshua Zeitlin (Zeitlis).

I don’t want to overwhelm you with info, so park that for now.

====

Compare and contrast what’s above, with THIS, the family tree for Aharon’s mum, Lea Golda Alexanderov, the Eshel Avraham’s grand-daughter:

====

I know, my head is also spinning from all this.

It’s not so much the information, it’s all the lies.

That ‘Reb Sender’ who is Aharon Zaslavsky’s maternal grandfather is the same guy fingered by Bloomer as the:

“secret Frankist Rebbe Benjamin Ephraim Braude (aka Alexander Margoliot/ Sender Brody) of Sheklov”.

====

(Astute readers may have noticed the massive problem this presents, in terms of Chabad genealogy.)

====

Let’s see if we can throw a bit more light on this by looking at Aharon Zaslavksi’s brother, Boruch, who is meant to have married the daughter of ‘Binyamin Kletzker’.

Binyamin Kletzker was another famous talmid of the Alter Rebbe, and has a lot of stories told about him, like this, from HERE:

Few Chassidim intrigue us as much as Reb Binyomin Kletzker.

His greatness was that he was a phenomenally successful businessman, whose every action and decision was influenced by and in accordance with the Chassidus he learnt. Those teachings permeated him to such an extent that quite often, to the shock of his associates, he would become absorbed in a thought of Chassidus in the middle of his transactions, reflecting on it for an extended period of time.

====

I’m pretty sure THIS is the same guy, R’ Binyomin Volf Klatzki Gunzburg:

====

Binyomin Vulf Klatzi Gunzburg is the first cousin of Naftali Hirsch Gunzburg, the dad of Gabriel Yakov Gunzburg.

You know, the grand-dad of this guy:

Baron Joseph Gunzburg (who was doing very similar things, at very similar times, to the 4th Rebbe MAHARASH of Chabad.)

Binyomin Vulf Klatzi Gunzburg is also married to the niece of the Vilna Gaon, R’ Eliyahu Rivlin.

(Yes, that’s a new piece of information I discovered just yesterday. The Vilna Gaon was apparently ‘R’ Eliyahu Rivlin’, the son of ‘Shlomo Zalman Rivlin’.

Just think how many ‘Rivlins’ shaped and are still shaping the modern State of Israel, and then start to understand why so much of this has been covered up.)

====

There are no siblings – at all – listed for ‘Binyomin Vulf Klatzi Gunzburg.

As you may have noticed, I could go on forever with this stuff…

But here’s the takeaway, for this post:

We can’t be scared to follow the truth down, wherever it takes us, and however uncomfortable it really makes us.

Once we know what is really going on, and why our communities and world is so very broken, then we can really start to take the steps required, and say the prayers required, to fix it.

It’s as simple as that.

If we don’t know ‘the problem’, we can’t work out ‘the cure’.

====

Do I think that Rebbe Nachman has some ‘Frankist’ descendants today?

It’s possible, but at this stage I think it’s unlikely.

Rabbenu brought back ‘the gift of opposition’ for Breslov chassidut from Israel, which means Breslov is constantly being picked apart and criticised. That makes it a very difficult place for ‘secret Frankists’ to hang out, generally, and also means Breslov generally has very little secular power or influence.

It does seem, tho, that there WERE ‘close mishpocha’ of Rabbenu who really were very deep in the Sabbatian-Frankist parsha, and who seem to have a habit of ‘projecting’ all their own stuff onto authentic Breslov.

As is still happening today, with Rav Berland and Shuvu Banim.

Remember, when one of these people was quoted extensively in the Israeli press accusing the Rav of being another ‘false messiah’ and another ‘Shabtai Tzvi?’

====

But the point is, really, that there is good and bad in everyone’s closets.

There is good and bad in everyone’s hearts.

There is good and bad in everyone’s actions.

We are all an admixture of good and bad, that needs clarifying and rectifying.

====

Going forward, I want to issue a plea:

Let’s just figure out the truth of what is really going on here, as a nation, as a people, so we can work together to figure out the solution, and get geula the sweet way.

Chabad for sure has tremendous good in it too, and tremendously good people. Breslov for sure, as a movement, still has its fair share of crazy psychos with bad middot, including the people who have been persecuting the Rav for the last 20 years.

We need to move past the ‘sectarianism’, and the ‘my Rebbe is bigger than your Rebbe’ stuff, and all the ‘pretending’ that our leaders are perfect saints who never had any doubts, or any crises of faith, or had any massive inherited skeletons in their closet.

And just figure out what is really going on here, so we can join together and fix it.

As one nation, with one heart, all trying to serve the One True Hashem.

====

The truth shouldn’t scare us.

Even all those ‘false messiahs’ had some spark of good, and were trying to somehow ‘fix’ the world spiritually – just they made some massive mistakes, got mixed up with demonic forces, and very quickly fell into even bigger spiritual mistakes that we are still suffering from today.

But Rabbenu teaches:

If you believe you can break, believe you can fix.

So yalla, let’s do it already.

Geula is waiting.

Following on from the last post, here is some of what I’ve been learning about the Gunzburgs of Russia.

***Update: They are trying to hack my website again***

This is the message I just got, take a look at which post is being targeted, and which category – on a blog site with less than 10 posts:

====

I wonder why this information is so challenging to the people trying to hack my site again, if it’s just the crazy rantings of a ‘conspiracy theorist’….

If the site goes down, just check back in a day or two once it’s cleaned back up, even if I have to take everything back to zero and start again. Just getting the information out there in the first place is tipping the balance, spiritually

====

Nearly every ‘gap’ in the Jewish genealogy that’s been looming large for me the last two years appears to be neatly filled by a Gunzburg, or someone associated with them. Let’s take a look at what more we can learn about this most interesting of families.

The story goes way, way back, but let’s start HERE, for now, with the REMA and his (suspected Karaite) father-in-law Shalom Shachne, Chief Rabbi of Lublin:

The REMA’s daughter marries one ‘Eliezer Gunsburg’ (1555-1613), and they have a lot of children.

Their great grand-child is one ‘Asher Gintzburg of Vilna’ (1640-1687):

====

Jump forward a few more generations, and you’ll notice that the Gunzburgs are marrying in to the family of Jacob Peretz Klatzki, head of the Vilna Community.

Asher Guntzburg (1715-1791) marries Yuta Klatzki, and their daughter, Malka married Issacher Dov Ber Klatzki – the brother of the Vilna Gaon.

In the meantime, Asher Gunzburg’s grandson is one ‘Naftali Gunzburg’.

====

That ‘Naftali Gunzburg’ (1778-1797) is the father of on ‘Gabriel Gunzburg’

In turn, he is the father of Baron Joseph Von Gunzburg.

====

Here’s a snippet introducing this branch of the (Russian) Gunzburg family.

(Taken from: Money lenders of the Imperial Palace)

In the second half of the 19th and early 20th centuries, there was probably no one in Russia who had not heard of the Barons Ginzburg. 

They were among the richest people in the Russian Empire. Among other things, they were successfully engaged in railway construction, were well-known patrons of art and no less famous gold miners.

And not only in Russia — family and business relations connected talented representatives of this family with Ukraine and Hungary, Germany and France; and one of them even became related to Baron Rothschild.

====

Joseph Guntzburg was also known as ‘Evzel’.

If you go HERE, you’ll learn exactly which Rothschild and which of his Gunzburg grand-daughters married each other, snippet below:

Evzel’s other children were also extremely beautiful and successful. Matilda was particularly charming. Fuld, the nephew of Emperor Napoleon III’s finance minister, noticed this and married her surprisingly soon after he first saw her.

All subsequent generations of Ginsburgs were attractive and quick-witted. The daughter of Fuld and Mathilde Ginzburg married a young man from the family of the most famous banker of that time, Rothschild — Eduard.

====

In fact, it was this Rothschild:

Édouard Alphonse James de Rothschild (24 February 1868 – 30 June 1949), also known as Baron Édouard de Rothschild was an aristocrat, French financier and a member of the prominent Rothschild banking family of France.

His uncle is Edmond de Rothschild, the guy who bought up most of Eretz Yisrael and who is now buried with his wife in a park in the middle of Zichron Yaakov.

And his son is the infamous Guy de Rothschild, who was one of the co-chairs of Rothschilds Inc, together with his British cousin Evelyn de Rothschild. According to people like David Icke, Guy de Rothschild was one of the leading ‘programmers’ in the MK Ultra program.

====

MK Ultra is for sure a thing.

Child-trafficking and trauma-based ‘mind control’ is sadly also definitely a thing, and was known to be practised by all those ‘reverse kabbalah’ families that you and I know as the Frankist-Freemasons.

I don’t know for sure if Guy de Rothschild was the ‘top guy’ in this program, as is claimed in many dark corners of the web, or if he was as connected to it as he’s reputed to be, but I’m bringing it here in the category of ‘at least possible’.

And his mum, Germaine Alice Halphen, was the great-granddaughter of Ezvel Gunzburg.

====

But I’m getting ahead of myself.

Baron Joseph (Ezvel) Gunzburg was married to a woman called Rosa Rasia Dynin.

She is a descendant of the Meir Panim, R’ Meir Eisenstadt, via his son Michael Eisenstadt of Kletzk. The Meir Panim was a secret Sabbatean whose brother, Mordechai Mokiach, actually proclaimed himself as the successor to Shabtai Tzvi.

The Meir Panim didn’t believe him – because he was a follower of another false messiah called Leib Prossnitz, who was teaching at the Meir Panim’s yeshiva in Eisenstadt – and one of his students was Jonathan Eybshutz.

What a small world!

====

And here’s another major Sabbatian in the Gunzburg family tree, that we learned a lot about:

Yes, it’s the Eshel Avraham himself, Rabbi Avraham Broda / Rovigo.

More on all these links to known Sabbatians in a a moment.

====

As well as making a ton of money in the liquor trade, and provisioning the Russian army, Joseph Gunzburg also acted as a shtadlan, or go-between for the Jewish community and the Russian Government.

He started a bank, went into gold mining, and leant the Russian Government 10 million rubles to help them finance their war against the Turks.

Which the Russian government defaulted on, plunging Gunzburg into bankruptcy. But he bounced back – a couple of times – and just kept diversifying his business. You can read more about his business empire, and how he became one of the richest Jews in Russia, HERE, and got honorary citizenship for himself and his family, too.

====

This is another good, balanced article on the Barons Gunzburg, in Russian, but Google translate:

The Kiev Rothschilds

Snippet:

Evzel’s son Horace married the banker’s daughter Anna Rosenberg. This marriage connected the Ginzburg families with several major financial dynasties…. Anna’s sisters were married to such famous bankers as Ashkenazi from Odessa, representatives of the top European businesses Warburg, Hirsch, and Herzfeld. 

Evsel and Horace Ginzburg even advised the Grand Duke of Hesse-Darmstadt on financial matters. Apparently, their advice was quite effective. Grand Duke Ludwig III appointed Horace as his Consul Plenipotentiary in St. Petersburg, but in addition, he granted him and his father the title of baron. In 1879, Tsar Alexander II, the son-in-law of the Duke of Hesse, allowed the Ginzburgs to use this title posteriorly…. 

We emphasize that the Ginzburg bankers, like the Ginzburg tax collectors, proved to be conscientious and diligent financiers who acted with considerable benefit for the clientele… 

====

But what I really want to focus on is what they say he did for the Jewish community.

Snippet from HERE:

[I]n 1859, thanks to Evzel Gavriilovich, a law appeared on granting Jewish merchants of the 1st guild and foreign subjects the right to live and trade outside the line of permanent settlement of Jews.

And in 1865, Ginzburg Sr. contributed to the creation of laws “On measures to facilitate the transition of Jews from the agricultural class to others” and “On allowing Jewish mechanics, distillers, brewers and craftsmen in general to live everywhere in the empire.”

At the same time, Ginzburg created a special fund under the Ministry of State Property to award the best Jewish farmers.

====

In 1863, Evzel founded the “Society for the Dissemination of Enlightenment among the Jews of Russia“, which, among other things, issued subsidies for the publication of Jewish newspapers and magazines – both in Russian and in Hebrew.

Ginzburg maintained this society exclusively at his own expense. He provided financial assistance to both scholars engaged in research on Jewish history and authors of popular science books in Hebrew. He also laid the foundation for the collection of rare books and manuscripts, known around the world as the “Collection of Barons Ginzburg”.

Evzel Gavriilovich also obtained the highest permission for the construction of a Choral Synagogue in St. Petersburg, and for a long time remained the leader of the capital’s Jewish community. After his death in 1878, his son Horace became such a leader.

====

Evzel’s son, Horace, carried on where is dad left off, and was particularly prominent in demanding that the Russian Government put an end to the anti-Jewish pogroms, that were increasing in frequency and violence:

Horace Osipovich also responded immediately to every report of increasingly frequent Jewish pogroms.

He provided assistance to victims, hired lawyers to defend Jews from false accusations of ritual murder, and beat the doorsteps of palace offices, demanding that everything be done to prevent new pogroms.

It was he who led the Jewish delegation to the reception of the new Emperor Alexander III, demanding to prevent new pogroms.

As you know, then the tsar attributed the organization of pogroms to revolutionaries who sought to discredit him in this way, and promised to stop the riots. However, he did not fail to mention “Jewish economic exploitation” as one of the reasons for the pogroms, not particularly hiding his policy of introducing new restrictions for Jews.

====

This is turning into a monster post, and I’m not even half-way through, yet.

Let’s sum up this bit, and then I’ll try to pick up the pace.

  • The Barons Guntzburg came from Vitebsk; they maintained an orthodox lifestyle behind closed doors while also attending non-Jewish balls and rubbing shoulders with royalty;
  • They made a ton of  money in the alcohol trade, and as tax collectors for the crown, and then started a bank, and then when into railway building and gold mining.
  • They intermarried with the Rothschilds and Warburg banking families (amongst many others).
  • They were also connected to known Sabbatians the R’ Meir of Eisenstadt, and the Eshel Avraham.
  • They were very concerned about pogroms, and seem to have been doing exactly the same thing, vis a vis the government and Jews as we are told the 4th Rebbe of Chabad did, for his co-religionists, including pushing the idea of creating ‘Jewish colonies’ and promoting Jewish agricultural collectives.
  • They were the leaders of the Jewish community in St Petersburg.
  • They ended up spending most of their time in Paris, France.

====

Now, I would love to tell you how – and if – the Guntzburg family overlap with the Schneerson family.

There are for sure a great deal of similarities, from having honorary nationality and titles and wealth; owning a lot of land in the same geographical locations, promoting agriculture and farming amongst the Jews; having direct access to people very high up in the Russian government and trying to improve the lot of the Jews; and keeping their beards when most people around them were shaving them off.

(To name but a few.)

In terms of the family tree, the Guntzburgs and the Schneersons are related to the same people, and occupy the same sort of ‘space’, if I can call it that.

There is tremendous overlap between what we are told the Rebbe Rashab, Chabad Number 4, was doing in Russia, and what the Barons Gunzburg were doing in Russia at exactly the same time, as I covered in THIS post.

Here’s the problem:

It’s very hard to get behind the screen that’s been erected around this family’s history.

====

Here’s the little bit I found about Yosef (Ezvel) Guntzburg’s parents on Russian Wikipedia:

In January 1812, Gabriel Ginzburg and his wife Leia-Sarah (Leah), nee — Rashkis, had a son, Iosifevzel (Yossel). In addition to their son, they had two more daughters: Eleonora (Elka, Yelka, Elena), who married Chaim-Joshua-Geschel Rosenberg from Zhytomyr and Beile (Bella), who married Zev-Wolf-Yitzhak Merpert.

====

On French Wikipedia, I learn a few more, different, details:

Gabriel-Jacob Günzburg (1793, Vilna – 2 may 1853, Simferopol), is a Lithuanian financier and philanthropist Lithuanian.

Günzburg settled in Kamenetz-Podolsk after his marriage, and he lived for a certain time Saint-Petersburg. Its affairs were shared between many cities.

He was also responsible for representing the interests of Rothschild in Russia.

He applied his philanthropy in four cities, Vilna, Vitebsk, Kamenetz-Podolsk and Simferopol, in the latter, he built a hospital.

On the proposal of the Russian minister of finance, the tsar Nicolas I of Russia gives Günzburg the title of “honorary citizen hereditary Russia ” the October 22, 1848.

====

So, we start to see that Gabriel-Jacob Gunzburg was actually the agent for the Rothschilds in Russia, just as Jacob Schiff was to become the principal agent for the Rothschilds in the US, a 100 years later.

This starts to explain a bit more, why the history of the Gunzburg family has been so hidden in the mists.

I will try to unpick more of the people behind Gabriel-Jacob Gunzburg in a future post, BH.

====

What I can already tell you is that the family is directly linked to Vilna, particularly the terrible machloket that erupted between Vilna’s Chief Rabbi, ‘Shmuel ben Avigdor’, and the kahal, that continued for 30 years, while the Vilna Gaon was there.

You can read more about that part of real Jewish history HERE, which is a partial translation of the Vilna community ‘pinchas’ on JewishGen.

Snippet:

Pride of place among the public leaders and rabbis of Vilna is reserved for Rabbi Yehuda Ben Eliezer Safra Vedayana (YSUD).

He made his fortune in trade, donated much money to the community and built a synagogue which bore his name (the Old Kloyz)…

In the argument between Rabbi Yonatan Eivshitz and Rabbi Ya’akov Amdan, Rabbi Yehuda Safra Vedayana supported Rabbi Yonatan and convinced the Vilna scholars and the Council to take his part.

During his time, Vilna had 12 Dayanim. After the death of Rabbi Yehoshua Heshel in 1749 Rabbi Yehuda forced the Kahal to appoint his son in law, Rabbi Shmuel Ben Rabbi Avigdor, to the position for life, in return for a large donation.

After the death of Rabbi Yehuda (1762) a sharp dispute developed between the Kahal and Rabbi Shmuel who wanted to appoint members of his family to public positions and intended his son Rabbi Israel to succeed him in office. For some 30 years, the conflict raged on, drawing into it powerful factions from Vilna and elsewhere and threatened the community’s autonomous standing.

The Kahal – the official leadership – opposed Rabbi Shmuel and accused him of corruption and taking bribes but he was supported by the ‘mob’ (the artisans who, despite their large number, were not represented in the Kahal), and later by the Hassids, who operated underground.

====

The YSOD had one daughter.

And that one daughter apparently wasn’t married to ‘Shmuel ben Avigdor’, like all the historians tell us she was, but one ‘Rabbi Jacob Gunzburg’, who I have a feeling is directly related to the later ‘Baron Gunzburgs’ we’re discussing.

Again, that would explain why all this was covered up.

====

So, let’s end this monster post with more of the connections the Baron Gunzburgs had in the world of finance closer to our times – and why that matters.

Lucky for us, the creator of the ‘Sputnick’ Covid, experimental gene-therapy shot that the Russians are using as their ‘Pfizer’ equivalent is one ‘Alexander Ginsburgh’.

I actually tripped over that piece of information on a Russian ‘fact-checking’ post, HERE, which went to great lengths to assure everyone that no, he isn’t at all related to the Baron Gunzburgs we’re discussing here, as being Rothschild agents in Russia.

As usual, there was no detail in that ‘fact-checking’ post, so I drew the opposite conclusion: he for sure is.

====

Luckily, some Russian ‘conspiracy theorist’ got there before me, and set it all out neatly, HERE.

The writer does a very good job of teasing out many of the links I’ve touched on above, between the Guntzburg family and the more familiar architects of that ‘New World Order’ I keep hearing about.

It’s in Russian, so Google translate it, if you can bothered.

====

So, as you can see, I have my hands full of yet more genealogical dumpster diving, trying to figure out what the links really are, between the Chabad Rebbes and the Guntzburg family.

But it’s all connected to Covid 19.

It’s all connected to the ‘Great Economic Reset’.

And it’s all connected to breaking apart the world of lies, so we can get to geula, hopefully the sweet way, as fast as possible.

And that’s the only reason I’m doing it.

====

PS: This is another post, in Russian, which sets out the links between Horace Guntzburg and Frankist-Freemason Moses Montefiore.

It’s always the same people, and the same names.

 

In hitbodedut a couple of days ago, I got the idea I should take a closer look at the 4th Rebbe of Chabad.

So, I’ve started to do that, with a lot of help from C., the person who put all the information together on how the Rebbe Rayatz was freed, twice, in very unlikely circumstances from a) Russian prison and b) Nazi Warsaw.

Here is what C. has managed to pull together, so far (all the numbered material below) and I’ll sum it up at the bottom.

====

1. He was the youngest of the Tzemach Tzedek’s children.

After the Tzemach Tzedek died a dispute ensued about who would inherit the leadership.
Rabbi Paltiel says in a shiur (sorry I don’t remember if it’s this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BCnGZVr1bD8&t=3302s or this one https://insidechassidus.org/decisions-5775-2015/ ) that the Tzemach Tzedek had  around 1 million chassidim and just a minority of these chassidim followed Rebbe Maharash.
He had the least amount of followers compared to his brothers.
The majority of the Tzemach Tzedek’s chassidim followed the second oldest brother called Yehuda Leib Schneersohn, because he was the oldest son willing to lead and he had been close to the 2nd Chabad Rebbe, who had liked him very much.
Go HERE, if you want to read more about Yehuda Leib on Chabadpedia (Hebrew, but Google translatable.)
==

 Yehuda Leib Schneersohn moved to Kopust 2 months after his father’s death where he set up himself up as a Rebbe, but on Simcha Torah of that year he fell ill and at the beginning of Chesvan he passed away.

The Maharash apparently didn’t go to the shiva, but wrote THIS to his brother’s relatives (from Sefer HaToldos Admur HaMaharash):

5627 – On 3 Cheshvan his brother, the Rebbe Reb Yehudah Leib, passed away in Kapust. To his son – the Rebbe Reb Schneur Zalman and family – he sent the following letter of condolence:

I received your letter last Friday upon my return in peace from Vitebsk. What can I possibly say to you? How can I console you after such terrible misfortunes? Your loss is as great as the sea; who shall heal you? May He who gives strength to those who are exhausted send you comfort from His holy abode, as the Sages say in Midrash Rabbah (end of the first chapter of Eichah): “She has suffered in double measure, may she be comforted in double measure … Be consoled, be consoled My people, so says your G-d.” May He be the one “Who shall heal you….”Regarding my proposed journey to your community: In truth, it is my desire to be there. However, we have heard rumors of the epidemic in Mohilev (may G-d save us); moreover, I see no necessity for it, nor anything definite that might be gained from my making the journey. Besides, I have heard that it is certain that you will be coming to visit us immediately after the thirty days of mourning.

At that time we can confer properly about where you should settle and how to avoid the problem of conflicts (G-d forbid), so that in our camp only true love may dwell. May the good L-rd “lead you in paths of righteousness for the sake of His Name,”[15] to bring our hearts truly closer. May He bless us, among all of His people Israel, with peace. As you desire it, and as I – your uncle – desire it, from the depths of my heart and soul.

2. So how did Rebbe Maharash end up with the official leadership?

Well a beit din was set up and they decided that the Maharash will be the one who will follow the Tzemach Tzedek as a Rebbe. Rabbi Schneur Zalman Fradkin was the one who set up this beit din and also among the rabbis who gave Rebbe Maharash smicha.
On a side note, Rabbi Fradkin’s daughter is the grandmother of British philosopher Isaiah Berlin.
According to Chabad lore the Tzemach Tzedek had wanted the Rebbe Maharash to be the leader after his death, see http://www.sichos-in-english.org/books/sefer-hatoldos-admur-maharash/05.htm#t10.
====

3. Rebbe Maharash was wealthy and liked living in luxury:

First of all, everyone is aware of how outwardly he lived a very rich life style. He had a chariot that was the envy of the nobility, and many horses to pull it. His flatware was made out of gold, as was his watch. Furthermore, this mode of conduct, began already in his father’s lifetime.

It’s unclear though where all this wealth came from.

====

Rabbi Paltiel mentions in one of the shiurim that I sent you above that Rebbe Maharash had stocks and bonds and traveled for business around Europe.

THIS article mentions also stocks and maamad (the money given by chassidim to the Rebbe to use according to his discretion, this explanation is taken from the footnote of this article: https://www.sie.org/templates/sie/article_cdo/aid/2376242/jewish/Giving-maamad.htm):
The Rebbe Maharash, although he conducted himself with extravagant wealth, also said that “Maamad is more precious than all preciousness.” Another time, he said that although he earned thousands a year in the stock market, “the pleasure in bread from heaven is Maamad money.
====

4. Rebbe Maharash traveled a lot around Europe, to meet other Jewish leaders, country officials and businessmen.

Between the years 5616 and 5626 (1856-1866) he traveled extensively throughout the country and abroad, in order to meet and influence important Jewish leaders. The friends that he made and the confidence he inspired at these meetings were to be of great assistance to Judaism in later years.
….
From 5630 to 5640 (1870-1880), Rabbi Shmuel again made many trips to various parts of the Russian Empire and abroad, with complete disregard for personal safety.
….
He had many personal friends and acquaintances among government officials, princes and nobles. “
Everything above is from here:
====
This pdf https://files.anash.org/uploads/2021/04/THE-REBBE-MAHARASH.pdf also shares this interesting tidbit:
He would make frequent trips to S. Petersburg to meet with government officials. He would also travel abroad, to Italy, Germany and France to meet with wealthy Jewish bankers. He developed an interesting tactic: He would ask those Jews to withhold loans to the Czar until he improved the condition of the Jews.
====

In Sefer HaToldos Admur Maharash, it says THIS, about the meeting between the 4th Rebbe of Chabad, the Rebbe Maharash, and Russia’s Minister of Interior:

[Ed. note: the bits in bold are kind of jaw-dropping…]

In one of his sichos, my saintly father-in-law the Rebbe relates another story that his father told him about this period.

[The story, as told by the Rebbe Rashab, follows]:

This happened in the year 5639, when incitement to carry out pogroms began in Russia (may it not happen now). My father traveled to Petersburg numerous times. Father was assured in various government circles that they would put a stop to the pogrom incitement.

====

After the Kiev-Niezhin pogrom broke out in 5640, father traveled to Petersburg immediately upon his return from a brief trip abroad. Through the intercession of Professor Josef Bertenson, Father was received by the Minister of the Interior. Father was very embittered by the prevailing pogrom situation.

Aggressively, he reminded the Minister of his promise that the government would put a halt to the pogrom-incitement. He informed the Minister in no uncertain terms that such treatment of the Jews would cause outrage abroad.

====

The Minister replied that he was well aware of the great powers of the foreign Jewish Capitalists. But he was also aware that their relations with Russian Jewry were not very cordial, and that they bore no sympathy – in fact, they bore hatred – toward the rabbonim.

Father reacted strongly to this, saying that if he understood the Minister correctly, the Minister was not familiar with the psychology of the Jews and their brotherly love. “To me,” Father said, “are addressed inquiries from the influential Capitalists abroad, asking how they should react to the tragic news concerning the situation of Russian Jewry. They ask what they can do to ensure the safety of Jewish lives and property in Russia.”

“What do you mean by this reply?” demanded the Minister in an angry tone.

Father: I will make no reply at all until after I hear the government’s answer to my mission regarding this situation.

====

The Minister: Lubavitcher Rebbe! Are you threatening the government with reaction by foreign Jewish Capitalists?

Father: The Minister need not take this as a threat, but he should consider this as a serious fact. Non-Jewish Capitalists will also support this, for humanity in general reacts strongly against such barbaric deeds.

The Minister: Does this mean that the Lubavitcher Rebbe, with the assistance of foreign Capitalists, is about to cause a revolution in Russia?

Father: The Russian government officials themselves will eventually cause that to happen, with their negligent bureaucratic leadership.

Beginning on the evening of that same day, Father remained under arrest for two days in his room in Hotel Serapinsky on Zabalkansky Boulevard. When he was allowed to go free on the third day, Father went to the Minister to receive a reply regarding his mission. He was told that he would receive an answer within two weeks’ time.”

5. There is no officially released photo of Rebbe Maharash.

However, there are people within Chabad who might have a picture of him.
This short clip is from ‘Stump the Rabbi’, asking why there is no picture of the Rebbe Maharash, even though such a pictures seems to exist:
[Ed. note, as usual with the Youtube clips they try to subtly censor, without giving the game away that this is what they are doing, I can’t get that video to ’embed’. In my book, that makes it even more worthwhile listening to.]
====
Back to me, now.
In THIS article, we learn that even though it’s a great mitzvah to have a picture of the Rebbe to accompany you while learning his Torah (which is a general idea you find in a lot of chassidut, not just Chabad) – portraits of the 4th Rebbe of Chabad were apparently intentionally not made.

Or at least, intentionally not made public.

Even though he lived in a time when photographs were being taken of many other people.
Even though he hob-nobbed with the rich and famous, and even though he was apparently very wealthy himself.
But these pictures do seem to exist, somewhere in the murk, at least according to this snippet from the comments on the above article:
“I have seen TWO photos of the Rebbe Maharash, one with a bandage and one with a talis, I have heard a rumour that they were smuggled out of Barry Gurary’s house though I have not substantiated it.
====
This is a snippet from one of the posts about real Jewish history from the old blog:

The last thing to share with you from the 6th Lubavitcher Rebbe’s memoirs concerns another member of the Batlan – Portugali family, named Binyamin.

He is another son of ‘Baruch Batlan’ (Alter Rebbe G-Grandfather). Here’s the snippet from the memoirs:

“He was accepted as a rabbi in Grodno, a city famous then for its great scientists. From there, Binyamin’s name became known throughout Poland and Lithuania, as well as in Jewish communities outside these countries.”

====

HERE he is, on geni:

====

Binyamin Broda (Portugali’s) second wife is the grand-daughter of Jacob Frank(el)

Via Frank’s daughter Annie Rosa (Rivka Shoshana) Mayer. And in turn, she is the mother of Chabad’s Rebbetzin ‘Leah Golda Alecsandrov‘, mother of the Chabad Rebbe number 4 – according to the Rebbe Rayatz’s own memoirs.

====

According to what’s currently on geni for her, the picture looks a little different:

====

This shows that Rebbetzin Leah Golda Alecsanderov, direct descendant of the Sabbatian ‘Eshel Avraham’ Broida / Rovigo and of Jacob Frank, is the paternal grandmother of the 4th Chabad Rebbe’s wife, Rivka Schneerson.

I don’t know which version is more factually correct, and I will BH do some more piecing of pieces together to try to figure it out.

But here’s the takeaway, from this post.

====

Over HERE, we already set out clearly how the Alter Rebbe’s family is part of the infamous ‘Shor’ family of Sabbatean-Frankists, and that all that got covered up.

You can understand why that is, because having ‘Jacob Frank’ as your first cousin is not really something any bona fide Rebbe wants on their CV.

Over HERE, we started to unpick how so many of the ‘Jewish bankers’ like Jacob Schiff, who funded the Bolshevik revolution, CO-INC-IDEN-TALLY are also in the Alter Rebbe’s extended family tree.

Here’s another screenshot, from Rebbetzin Leah Golda Alecsanderov’s geni profile:

====

And now, we can add into this the comments made by the 5th Lubavitcher Rebbe himself, about his father, R’ Shmuel,the 4th Lubavitcher Rebbe:

The Minister replied that he was well aware of the great powers of the foreign Jewish Capitalists. But he was also aware that their relations with Russian Jewry were not very cordial, and that they bore no sympathy – in fact, they bore hatred – toward the rabbonim.

Father reacted strongly to this, saying that if he understood the Minister correctly, the Minister was not familiar with the psychology of the Jews and their brotherly love.

“To me,” Father said, “are addressed inquiries from the influential Capitalists abroad, asking how they should react to the tragic news concerning the situation of Russian Jewry. They ask what they can do to ensure the safety of Jewish lives and property in Russia.”..

====

The Minister: Lubavitcher Rebbe! Are you threatening the government with reaction by foreign Jewish Capitalists?

Father: The Minister need not take this as a threat, but he should consider this as a serious fact. Non-Jewish Capitalists will also support this, for humanity in general reacts strongly against such barbaric deeds.

The Minister:

Does this mean that the Lubavitcher Rebbe, with the assistance of foreign Capitalists, is about to cause a revolution in Russia?

====

And the last thing to remember, is all those ‘Zeitlins’ and ‘Tumarkins’ that we strangely already found at the top of that Bolshevik tree – and the list of ‘closet Jews’ who took over Russia in the name of communism is growing longer each time I take a look at it.

Did the 4th Lubavitcher Rebbe, closely related to Jacob Frank in a bunch of different ways, really “cause a revolution in Russia, with the assistance of foreign Capitalists” – who he also seems to be closely related to?

And if yes, how does that change what we think we know about who and what really caused the Russian Revolution – and all the other things we think we know about history generally, and Jewish history in particular?

It’s probably time we found out.

TBC

PS: When I was trying to find an image for this post, I stuck in ‘Maharash’ and came back with a lot of different pictures of the the Rebbe Rayatz (No.6), who was said by the last Lubavitcher Rebbe to look very similar to the Maharash.

I screenshotted one drawing in particular, that took my eye:

Because he reminded me very much of this person:

This is Baron Horace Osipovich Ginsburg, one of Russia’s wealthiest industrialists.

You can read more about him HERE, on Wiki. Here’s a snippet:

G. O. Ginzburg was one of the seven founders in 1872Siberian Commercial Bank[3]. In 1874, he became one of the co-owners of the Berezovsky gold mining business together with Colonel V. I. Astashev, Count P. A. Shuvalov and was a managing partner of the Berezovsky business….

In addition, the Gintsburgs were among the founders of the Kiev Private Commercial Bank, Of the Odessa Accounting Bank, owned the Partnership of the Mogilyansky Beet and Sugar Factory, which owned a sugar factory and farmland in Podolsk province.

In 1892, the Ginzburg banking house fell into a deep crisis. The government refused to support the bank that was in debt and introduced a temporary administration, the Gintsburgs lost interest in banking and switched to gold mining. Horace Ginzburg headed, and then established control over the richest Lena Gold Industry Association.

Ginzburg conducted extensive charitable activities, was at the origins and headed a number of public organizations aimed at improving the situation of Jews in the Russian Empire. In particular, he headed the central committee The Jewish Colonization Society, which organized the resettlement of poor co-religionists outside Eastern Europe. He repeatedly petitioned the Reich authorities to repeal anti-Semitic laws.

====

Is it just me, or does he sound like he’s doing exactly the same things as the Maharash, at the same time, and in the same places?

And look at that link up with The Jewish Colonization Society, that we already started taking a look at in relation to Maurice de Hirsch, as being potentially part of a people trafficking operation linked to the ‘Tzvi Migdal’ prostitution racket.

Sigh.

The pigeons are coming home to roost.

Hold on tight, it only gets more interesting from here.
