Like you, I’ve been scratching my head about what’s really going on with all this ‘Chaim Walder’ stuff.

***UPDATES BELOW***

Because at this point we all know, the media is working for the corrupt government, which in turn is funded by the corrupt ‘elites’ who are trying to kill us all off and / or enslave us with nanotech in the Covid shots, plus 5…G.

And yet somehow, these same Freemason-Frankist ‘elites’, who are up to their necks in child trafficking, and child abuse – together with their ‘Trojan Horses’ in the Jewish community, are suddenly super-concerned about a dead author of Jewish children’s books.

They are so concerned, they are getting their usual shills in the orthodox Jewish community to start putting out ‘messages‘, and to hold ‘webinars’, and they are even digging up video of Rav Chaim Kanievsky from 20 years ago to underline just how concerned they suddenly are.

(All the time, staying curiously quiet about people who are part of their ‘elite’ network, like Meshi-Zahav. Where is that guy, does anyone know?)

So what’s really going on here?

====

On the last post HERE, I was musing about that out loud, when a comment from a reader started to shine some light into the murk.

Here’s the comment:

https://www.israelnationalnews.com/news/320037

I also agree that there is something fishy going here.

Like, those who themselves are obsessed with this whole topic are pushing that we should be educated about how to protect ourselves and how to deal with the abuse.

One interesting found:

There is a children’s book in Hebrew Mah Sh’Batuach Batuach. It was sold by Feldheim for 10 ILS a few years ago after being heavily subsidized. It’s about teaching kids about personal safety.

I found it on my couch the other day, so I opened it up and saw that it was endorsed by certain Rabbanim. One is Rav Silman and the other was Rav Chaim, with a letter from Rebbetzin Koledetsky.

Now, this may not mean anything, but these names certainly add up.

Maybe there’s a hidden agenda here- but what is it?

I clicked on that link, and I got to this:

Snippet:

On Friday morning, most of the people bustling through Beit Shemesh, a town in central Israel with a large haredi Orthodox population, were getting ready for Shabbat. Shoshanna Keats-Jaskoll had a different mission.

Keats-Jaskoll was handing out flyers with messages of support for victims of sexual abuse, in a public display of solidarity at the end of a wrenching week in many Orthodox communities.

At the beginning of the week, Chaim Walder, a celebrated haredi Orthodox children’s book author in Israel, died by suicide after being accused by numerous children and young women of sexual abuse. The Ashkenazi chief rabbi of Israel visited Walder’s family. Then, on Thursday, one of Walder’s alleged victims, Shifra Horovitz, also died by suicide, her friends saying she had been distraught by the response to his death.

And the name of her organisation, Chochat Nashim, also sounded just so familiar to me.
So, I spent some time scrolling through my old blog posts about the ‘ortho-fems’ I was having a running battle with online, back in 2019, just before Covid 19 – and here is what I found.
The first batch of info comes from a post I wrote called Can ‘feminist’ and ‘orthodox’ every really go together?
(Old stuff is in italics.)
====

Yesterday, a news story came to my attention that a bunch of Reform feminists, plus one apparently ‘modern orthodox’ feminist have decided to sue Ikea.

What was the furniture store’s terrible crime? In 2016, Ikea Israel made the mistake of trying to reach out to the chareidi community by printing a catalogue specially for them, that didn’t include any pictures of women in it. Instead of applauding Ikea’s attempted sensitivity for the orthodox world, instead of adopting the maxim of live and let live, instead of letting the orthodox world decide for itself what sorts of pictures it wants to see in the publications that it brings into its home, a group called the “Israel Religious Action Center”, decided to sue Ikea Israel, instead.
====

WHO RUNS THE ‘ISRAEL RELIGIOUS ACTION CENTER?’

A quick look at the IRAC website tells you that IRAC’s Executive Director is Anat Hoffman, who you may well recognise as the ‘founder and director’ of the infamous Women of the Wall. IRAC describes itself as “the legal and advocacy arm of the Reform Movement in Israel.” IRAC has certainly been busy the last few years. Here’s some highlights from its website, where we’re told that:

IRAC plays a lead role in battling attempts by religious extremists to limit the participation and visibility of women in the public sphere in Israel, reversing the phenomena of gender segregation and exclusion and achieving remarkable success.

(Again, please remember that these people are the notorious Women of the Wall.)

====

Here’s some of what they’ve been up to, before the got around to suing Ikea:

1) In June 2017, they sued El Al to stop women or men asking to switch seats, if they didn’t want to sit next to someone of the opposite gender.

2) In 2015, the sued Bet Shemesh to force orthodox neighborhoods to remove signs asking women to dress modestly in their neighborhoods.

3) In 2014, they chummed up with Kolech, which describes itself as a ‘Religious Women’s Forum’ to sue the chareidi radio station Kol BeRama.

4) Now, they’re in the process of trying to sue the IDF to stop having ‘men only’ bases: “We are currently collecting testimonies of women soldiers who were harmed by women-free areas in the army.”

5) They’re also trying to prevent higher educational facilities where men and women can study without rubbing shoulders with the opposite gender.

====

Ah, peace n’love. IRAC is being at least partially funded by the New Israel Fund. We’ll hear more about them in a moment. Anyway, back to Ikea. ——

According to Haaretz, the suit filed by the complainants said:

“The total exclusion of women and girls from the catalog sends a serious and difficult message that women have no value and there is something wrong with their presence, even in the family-home space depicted in the catalog. “This discrimination and exclusion has severely insulted, angered and traumatized those who received the catalog.”

====
All this was back in April 2019, when these ‘ortho-fems’ were all over the orthodox media, trying to browbeat the frum world into showing more women’s faces, and bodies, and expensive fingernails, and $10,000 sheitels, all in the name of ‘equality’.
I finished that post with this statement:

God gave us a Torah, God gave us rules to follow.

God knows exactly what He’s doing. Is the chareidi world behaving properly and appropriately all the time? Absolutely not. Is there room for improvement? Absolutely. But it’s not for Reform-minded feminists or the Meretz-loving New Israel Fund to decide how those changes should happen, or what those improvements should be. It’s up to our God-fearing Sages and our Torah-observant rabbis to make those decisions in accordance with halacha, the same way it’s been working since the Torah was handed down to Moshe over 3,000 years ago. And so, we come back full circle, and I have to ask:

Can ‘orthodox Jew’ and ‘feminist’ ever really go together?

Because from where I’m standing, it’s increasingly looking like a resounding ‘no’.

====

And then, I got this as one of the comments back on that post – and here’s where we segue back into Chaim Walder, and Shoshana Keats-Jaskoll, and her Chochmat Nashim organisation:

Following on from Ann Koffsky invitation to look at the frumwomenhavefaces.com website, in the comments section, I went to take a look. These are my thoughts:

  1. The stated quotes from Rabbis don’t appear to have any actual Torah sources to back them up. I would like to see the Torah sources / commentaries that these opinions are based on.
  2. The FWHF website recommends that visitors: “Share these press guidelines from Chochmat Nashim with the Jewish media.”
  3. When I clicked over to see who is behind the Chochmat Nashim website, I found this statement:

We partner with leading organizations that share our goals and values, such as ITIMKolechThe Center for Women’s JusticeMavoi SatumYad La’isha and the International Young Israel Movement, the Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance (JOFA), as well as members of Knesset, social activists, community rabbis and religious leaders.

====

Apart from the International Young Israel Movement, all the other organisations that were listed on the Chochmat Nashim website back in 2019 were linked to and / or receiving money from the Reform movement, and / or the New Israel Fund.

Here’s some examples:

ITIM – Has a bunch of ‘Jewish Federation’ sponsors plus donors who like to emphasize promoting ‘Jewish pluralism’ and ‘tikkun olam’ in Israel – key Reform phrases.

Kolech – Got more than $50k from the New Israel Fund in 2018.

The Center for Women’s Justice – Got $26,750 from the New Israel Fund in 2018.

Mavoi Satum – Got $49,000 from the New Israel Fund in 2018.

Yad L’Isha – Got $34,000 from the New Israel Fund in 2018.

====

I just took a look at the ‘Chochmat Nashim’ website now, in the middle of writing this post – and now, it seems all this information about who is really funding them has been scrubbed off their site.

(If you can find it, please drop a link in the comments.)

Conveniently, just in time for ‘Chochmat Nashim’ – and the other Reform funded, NIF funded, Freemason-Frankist funded ‘ortho-fem’ organisations to come charging out at the hareidi community, now wielding ‘Chaim Walder’ as their weapon of choice.

To put this another way, the ‘ortho fem’ movement is being funded and organised by people who openly state they want to take down orthodox Judaism.

====

So now, let’s return to Chaim Walder, and ask some more questions:

  • Who paid the tens of thousands of shekels, for Keats-Jaskoll and her ‘volunteers’ to print and then distribute 350,000 leaflets in the chareidi community?
  • Why is it, that so many of the apparently ‘orthodox Jews’ that we saw acting as Covid 19 pimps for the Frankist-Freemasons are also to be found jumping on the Reform / NIF-sponsored ‘bash-Chaim Walder’ bandwagon?
  • And why is Reform / NIF sponsored-ortho fems making such a big deal about ‘abuse in the orthodox community’, and dead Chaim Walders, while apparently completely ignoring terrible abuse in their own communities, and own backyards?
By people like THIS:
====
And by people like THIS:
====
(Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘liberal’ Jewish friends included:
  • Alan Dershowitz;
  • Les Wexner; and 
  • Ehud Barak
Amongst many others.)
====

Here’s the ‘Alan Dershowitz’ tag at the New Israel Fund site:

====

HERE is where you can see how many bureaucrats, army and other ‘establishment’ people took Les Wexner’s dime, in Israel, over the last 32 years:

====
And THIS speaks for itself:
====
Maybe my browser isn’t working, but I can’t seem to find any statements from New Israel Fund, the Women of the Wall, or any of the other Jewish ‘feminist’ promoting people and organisations mentioned here, condemning Shimon Peres, or Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell, and all the other ‘Jewish’ people associated with them, in any way.
But when it comes to Chaim Walder?
Then, there is money for 350,000 leaflets to be printed and distributed.
Then, there are tens of ‘content writers’ and ‘orthodox rabbis’ in the Jewish community putting out unprecedented statements and running webinars – all in a way that looks suspiciously ‘co-ordinated’ and paid for.
Then, there is the fake news media running one piece after another about the ‘problems of abuse  in the chareidi community’ – but ONLY in the orthodox community!!! – that need to be fixed by ‘ortho-fems’ who are being funded by NIF and the Reform movement….
====
Tell me something:

Are we going to let them do this to us again, as a community?

Are we just going to sit here and be manipulated, scammed and attacked again, as these Frankist-Freemasons use all their little ‘pseudo-orthodox’ shills and trojan horses to try and destroy our real rabbis, our real Judaism, our real Torah values again?
This is exactly what happened with Rav Berland.
It’s exactly what happened with all the ‘ortho-fem’ propaganda from a couple of years ago.
It’s exactly what happened with ‘Covid 19’.
And now, it’s happening again….
But this time, hopefully more of us are going to start calling out this Frankist-Freemason agenda – and the shills who are pushing it in our communities – and to recognise what’s really going on here.

They are setting up the real Jews to take the fall for their own sins.

And I’m really praying that this time, they won’t succeed.

UPDATE:

This is from Chananya Weissman, and is very interesting reading:

 Fake Torah Against Walder

Episode #23 of our Root and Branch Medical War Crimes series is now available at https://rumble.com/vswehp-r-and-b-medical-war-crimes-23-fake-torah-against-walder-shuey-finkelstein.html.
In the first part I presented more information about Erev Rav Eliyahu’s trampling all over the Torah in his kangaroo court against Chaim Walder.  See below for a write-up of much of this information, including the Torah sources I discussed on the show copied in full.
In the second part, Shuey Finkelstein shared information about federal payoffs and bribes (known as grants) to CHEMED and Jewish schools to push their covid agenda.
*   *   *

A recent issue of Mishpacha Magazine featured “A Note on Hilchos Lashon Hara” by Rabbi Avrohom Neuberger.

You can see it here.  The purpose of this article is to defend the actions of Eliyahu and company against Walder, and support the worldwide lashon hara campaign against Walder.
Rabbi Neuberger included the following parenthetical comment: (The halachic grounds for beis din accepting testimony in the absence of the accused, and from minors and others who are generally not accepted for testimony, is discussed in the poskim — see Rema, Choshen Mishpat 33 — and is beyond the scope of this brief note.)
====

I contacted Rabbi Neuberger and asked him the following questions:

1. The halachic grounds for beis din accepting testimony in absence of the accused, based on the Rema, Choshen Mishpat 33 — can you please be more specific as to the source for this?
2. The cherem of speaking lashon hara about the dead not applying to a rodef — can you please provide the source for this as well?  Also, from what I understand a rodef by definition is someone who is actively trying to kill someone in the future.  I don’t understand how a dead person can be called a rodef, since whatever they did, horrible as it might be, is already in the past, and it is no longer an “active shooter” situation.
====

Rabbi Neuberger sent me a cordial reply that he would get back to me later in the week.  After two days I sent a follow-up:

Thanks for the reply but I’m surprised you don’t have the sources handy, being that they formed the foundation for your article, and really should have been included in the article.  I was not able to find any Rema in Choshen Mishpat 33 allowing for testimony in the absence of the litigants, only a lengthy Shach that was categorically AGAINST it. 
 
I can’t imagine there is a source that categorizes a deceased person as a rodef, but I am not especially knowledgeable.
 
Please clarify the sources on which your article was based.  Thank you.
====
 

Rabbi Neuberger replied by pointing me to an article from the Journal of Halacha and Contemporary Society in 2010, saying I should see from page 13.

You can find it here.
He acknowledged that I was correct about Walder being referred to as a rodef, and said a “major posek” in the laws of lashon hara had instructed him to use this term.  He also said that the benefit of slandering Walder even after his death would make it permitted, as defaming him would deter others.
I sent him the following lengthy reply, which includes my notes from last night’s show and Torah sources cited in full.
I want to emphasize that Rabbi Neuberger’s correspondence with me has been cordial, and therefore I will assume that his intentions are sincere, even as I strongly disagree with his conclusions and his methods for arriving at them.  I hope this leads to a greater understanding of the proper Torah approach to this situation and in general.
====

Here is my reply, which is where things stand at the moment:

I appreciate your forthright reply, but honestly I find it very disturbing.  First of all, we do not pasken matters of life and death, with widespread communal implications, by simply pointing to an article in a journal. There must be clear and precise halachic sources and precedent to support one’s ruling, and it must be clear how the dots connect to the specific situation.
In your Mishpacha article you provided two “sources”.  One of them, the Rema, was given without a direct reference, just a chapter, and there is nothing in the Rema that supports holding secret trials in absence of the accused.  The main commentary on this Rema, the Shach, writes unequivocally against such things.
The second was a reference to the Chafetz Chaim permitting lashon hara in a case of to’eles, even against a dead person who is a “rodef”.  This is problematic on many levels.  First of all, again, there is no specific source cited, just a concept.  This is not how psak works.
==
Secondly, the Chafetz Chaim lists seven conditions for it to be permissible to speak lashon hara, which I am sure you are familiar with, ALL OF WHICH must be met, otherwise it is forbidden. 
The fact that one intends for there to be a to’eles is not a blanket heter for “anything goes”.  Everyone who speaks lashon hara will claim they are doing it for a to’eles.  In the case with Walder, those speaking and accepting the lashon hara do not seem to be meeting ANY of the seven conditions.  Good intentions alone do not justify engaging in a worldwide lashon hara campaign with no limits or restraints.
The only people who benefit from this MeToo witch hunt are those who might wish to spread rumors about someone and destroy their life. Abusers will continue to abuse no matter what, but now anyone with an ax to grind sees that an angry mob will eagerly believe rumors without question and run wild with them.
==
Thirdly, the acknowledgment that a “major posek” instructed you to call Walder a rodef after his death is highly disturbing, as is the fact that you complied without even asking for his reasoning, despite recognizing that the language is unsuitable. 
Calling him a rodef is intended for shock value, to manipulate public opinion in favor of the lashon hara campaign.  This isn’t Torah, it’s propaganda.
I started reading the journal article before page 13, because unlike those jumping on the lashon hara bandwagon, I am concerned with what the Torah actually has to say, not simply justify the predetermined conclusion that the lashon hara campaign is virtuous.
Not surprisingly, the article contains many sources that indicate this unrestrained lashon hara campaign is extremely inappropriate, to put it mildly, and that far greater caution should be exercised. 
There are situations in which testimony from minors can be taken seriously, and there are situations in which the accused need not be present, but these are both extremely limited, as are the actions that can be taken based on such testimony.  There is a giant canyon one must leap over between these sources and the actions that have been taken against Walder.  The dots simply do not connect, much as the hysterical mob wants them to.
==
I will share some sources and information that must be reconciled before a lashon hara campaign of this nature can even be considered:

יד אפרים על הלכות שחיטה א:א

  וכתב בשו”ת מים עמוקים בחלק תשובת מ’ אלי’ מזרחי ז”ל בסימן כ”ד בעיר אחת שהיו שם שתי קהלות קהל רומניאה ושוב נתישבו קהל ספרדים ולפי שהשוחט היה משגיח יותר לקהל רומניאה שנאוהו אנשי ספרדים והיו מתנכלים עליו להוציאו ממנויו ולכן השתדלו להוציא עדים ביניהם בענין שיופסל ושלחו אליו לבא לבדקו ולא רצה לפי שלא היו שם מאנשי רומניאה וקבלו עדות שלא בפניו והענישוהו תענית ומלקיות ממון וקנס בכ”ז אינו מופסל בעדות זה שלא בפניו ומה שלא הלך כששלחו לו שפיר עביד מאחר שיודע שמחפשין אחריו לפוסלו ולא חזו ליה זכותא וגם כל אנשי רומניאה מעידין שכל הספרדים מקנאים לו מחמת שאינו משגיח עליהם כ”כ ורצו לפזר ממון להוציאו בכדי למנות אחר מאנשי מקומם בכה”ג הני דייני וסהדי נוגעים בו

In the Walder situation it was clearly a witch hunt and kangaroo court that decided his guilt and was out to get him before the trial opened.  Hence, Walder was correct not to show up, and the court is invalid.
==
2. Shmuel Eliyahu posted the following explanation on December 26:

  https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=4618298561619441&id=314191358696871

You can see an English translation here:

https://www.jewishpress.com/news/jewish-news/rabbi-shmuel-eliyahu-this-is-why-we-ruled-chaim-walder-guilty/2021/12/29/

ההלכה מחייבת אותנו כרבנים לפעול כנגד אנשים שמטמאים את בית ישראל. (תענית יבמוק ובי תקסה). הטיפול הזה לא נעשה בכללים הרגילים של בית דין ולא חייבים לקבל עדות בפניו. (שות שואל ומשיב מהדק חלק אסימן קפה). כל שכן כשרגיל לאיים על הנשים ויראות מפניו. (רמא חומ כח טו).

Once again, Eliyahu also did not provide his actual source, leaving others to do the homework to find it on their own and guess his thought process.  Most people will not bother to do that or be capable of it.  I looked up the Gemara in Taanis and Moed Katan and the Beis Yosef.  It has nothing to do with the topic at hand.  It’s all about fasting and public prayer.  Eliyahu just made up sources out of thin air.

==

I looked up Choshen Mishpat 28:15, and in fact it says the OPPOSITE of the conclusion he is trying to defend:

אין מקבלין עדות שלא בפני בעד ואם קבלו אין דנין על פיוהגה וחוזרין ומגידין בפניו ואם שנו בעדותן בפעם שני ממה שהגידו בראשונה הולכין אחר העדות השני שהגידו בפניו אעפ שהגידו בראשונה על פי החרם דכל שלא בפניו כחוץ לבד דמי וחוזרין ומגידין (בי בשם רבי מנחםויש חולקין ואומרים דאם נתקבל העדות שלא בפניו כשר בדיעבד (רי נב חב ומרדכי פרק הגוזל בתראולכן אם הבעל דין הוא אלם והעדים יראים להגיד לפניו מקבלין העדות שלא בפניו ודנין על פיו (פסקי מהראי סי‘ קעה וקעזמיהו אם אפשר לכוף האלם כדרך שנתבאר לעיל סי‘ זה סה עדיף טפי יא דלא אמרו אין מקבלין עדות אלא בפני בד היינו בדיני ממונות אבל בקטטות ומריבות שיש לחוש שאם יעידו בפניהם יתקוטטו עם עדים גם יתקוטטו זה עם זה תקנו הגאונים שמקבלים העדות שלא בפניהם גם לא יגלו מי הם העדים (הגהת מרדכיולנ דדוקא כשאין הבד רוצים לדון אחד מהם עפ הדין ולענוש רק להשקיט הקטטה ולהורות כפי צורך המריבה אבל כשרוצים לענוש ולדון אחד מהם אין לקבל העדות אלא בפניו וכמו שנתבאר באהע סיא סד:

He allows for testimony in absentia to settle fights between people, NOT as a basis for punishing people in criminal cases.

One cannot argue that Walder was threatening to kill the witnesses, because according to the reports of these same people, the only person he threatened to hurt was himself.

==

Even HaEzer Siman 11:4 was mentioned at the end, so I looked that up.

יא שאם באו עדים שאשת איש זינתה צריכים דרישה וחקירה (ואין לקבל העדות שלא בפניה ושלא בפני בעלה) (תשו‘ הראש כלל מו)

And I looked up the Teshuva of the Rosh.

שות הראש כלל מו סימן א

Back to Eliyahu’s Facebook post.

למרות שהיה ברור לו שהוא הורס בתיםולמרות שהיה ברור לו שהוא מכשיל ומטמא את בית ישראלהמשיך ולדר בדרכו בלי לעצור לרגעקיבלנו עדויות על 22 נשים ונערות שהוא פגע בהןואין שום ספק שהמקרים הללו הם רק חלק קטן מפגיעתו הרעה.

====

Rav Eliyahu and his kangaroo court did NOT hear from 22 victims.  They didn’t hear from ANY victims.  They heard ABOUT them.  Kind of like how people didn’t really die FROM covid, but with a negligible trace of it somewhere in their system.    

Notice that the Jewish Press in the same article wrongly stated that “the rabbis ruled him guilty following evidence from 22 victims”.  No such thing.  It was all hearsay. 

Eliyahu and company are either woefully negligent or criminally corrupt, or both.  According to the Rosh, they should be made to stand before a Beis Din and be punished for their actions.

====

So how many people ACTUALLY testified?

We were told it had to be a secret trial (against halacha) because it’s too painful for the victims to testify. But they didn’t! So who did? Why can’t we know who THEY are, and how THEY got their information?

I have no idea what Walder did or didn’t do, and no one supports abusers. 

However, this entire lashon hara campaign is based on trusting Eliyahu that he heard a lot of stories, he checked them all out, and Walder is a really bad guy, so go get him.  I’m sorry, but this is not how halacha works, and it runs roughshod all over the laws of lashon hara, which Eliyahu is obligated to follow the same as anyone else.

Rabbis and poskim have no right to make up sources, or send people on wild goose chases looking for their sources, or to make people believe the dots connect just because they say so and we have to trust them.

I am hoping you will have the integrity to see the merit in my words and publish a retraction.  If you do not see merit in my words, I hope you will publish a clear explanation for why everything I said is irrelevant, and provide clear, direct sources to that effect.

Our ‘secret services’ are rotten to the core.

***UPDATES BELOW***

The last 80 years, 100 years, 150 years – whatever – we’ve all been told that America and the UK and the West stand for ‘liberty’ and ‘light’ and ‘human dignity and freedom’.

That’s a lie.

Daisy posted a link to this video, which is an interview with Dr Juliette Engel, who was sold to the OSS / CIA when she was six by her own father, to be used in the MK Ultra ‘mind kontrol’ project.

(Although she says the ‘MK’ stands for ‘Mein Kampf’, and Hitler’s plans to have a world of ‘slaves’ serving a small elite. That could be true – just look around what’s happening today.)

====

It’s not easy listening, but we have to start to get to grips with what evil is really doing in the world, if we want the evil to finally fall.

====

She does a very good job of explaining what is really going on, in as ‘tznius’ a way as you can, with the subject matter, and it really boils down to this:

“A lot of the real evil that’s happening in the world is being fuelled by child trafficking.”

And of course, the child abuse that is part and parcel of this.

====

All the ‘secret societies’ in the world literally worship the dark side, and perform all sorts of satanic rites that revolve around abuse of the worse kinds, and even child sacrifice.

This brave new world that we live in, that kicked off the ‘yoke of Torah’ and the ‘yoke’ of Torah-based morality isn’t ‘free’ at all.

They just replaced the ‘yoke of Torah’ with the ‘yoke of the Samech Mem’ – and we see that so clearly today, where ridiculous ‘Covid 19’ rules have mamash become a religion, for many people.

====

The ‘Sabbatian-Frankists’ within the Jewish community are also part of this network of child abuse and people trafficking – all covered over with shiny PR about charidee, and high ideals.

No-one can get on in this world of lies, this world of evil, and enjoy massive success on a massive scale, unless they are at the very least, tacitly agreeing to what is going on behind closed doors in all the ‘corridors of power’.

====

The last couple of days, I’ve had different readers flag a couple of things as ‘fishy’, connected to this subject, within the Jewish community.

One was this, a s*xual abuse ‘seminar’ from the South African Jewish community called ‘Let’s talk openly’:

====

And then, CO-INC-IDEN-TALLY, I was also sent this, from the corrupt propaganda site, Arutz 7:

====

What’s puzzling is that this video is from 20 years ago….

And that this subject is being ‘hawked’ by the same people who have routinely been pushing the Covid shots on the Jewish community.

And it’s being promoted by that same, rotten, corrupt media that is really just the propaganda arm for our rotten, corrupt governments and ‘elites’, who are up to their necks in participating in child trafficking.

So, something strikes me as very strange here.

====

It’s great to ‘nurture a culture where victims feel supported’, I am totally all for that.

Abuse of children IS happening in the Jewish world – secular and ‘religious’ – and IS happening in the orthodox Jewish world, particularly within those branches of the Jewish world that are closely tied to the (devil-worshipping….) Freemason-Frankist nexus that I keep writing about.

Both in the secular world, and in the so-called ‘orthodox’ world.

It could be, that the ‘Freemason-Frankist’ network is now starting to blow a lot of smoke about this subject to try to cover their own tracks, in the wake of the fall-out from the Ghislaine Maxwell trial.

Honestly, I don’t know what’s going on here.

But I’m flagging this as ‘something to watch carefully’.

And something to pray a lot about.

====

Maybe, Chaim Walder was just a ‘trial balloon’ to test the waters.

You know, some sort of guaranteed mechanism to eradicate anyone that stands up to the “Covid 19 / Great Reset / enslavement of humanity” juggernaut in someway.

So remember, not everyone who is publically accused of stuff in the media, or in ‘kangaroo court’ Beit Dins is guilty.

Guilt is decided by facts and evidence, argued by BOTH SIDES in court, not in absentia, and not in the media.

====

And also remember most of the the people who really ARE guilty of this stuff, will never be publically accused, nor brought to justice

Just look at what happened at the Ghislaine Maxwell trial, where the court papers were all sealed by the judge, so the ‘rich and powerful’ people who were incriminated by the trial can keep their reputations intact, and their horrible crimes hidden.

Look at Meshi-Zahav, who just totally disappeared off the scene before he could be brought to trial, and no-one even knows where he is today.

This is the world we currently live in.

This is the olam hafuch that needs to tip over, please God, very, very soon.

====

One more thing:

It’s interesting to me, that so many of the people and organisations who ‘went out’ on Chaim Walder appear to be connected to so many ‘covered up abuse’ stories within their own communities.

Are they going to stop suppressing the details of what their own ‘network’ has been up to now?

I won’t go into details, but start praying a lot about this, and don’t be fooled by ‘super-pious’ appearances and pronouncements.

Because the people making them are often part of that super-corrupt ‘machine’ that needs to disappear, before Moshiach can come.

And the birur is definitely heating up.

====

UPDATES:

I just got sent a link to this story, snippet below:

It all starts with the removal of books… http://ch7.io/cbovc

Snippet:

Ofer Berkowitz, head of the Hitorerut (Awakening) party in the Jerusalem city council and a member of the district committee, has demanded that disgraced children’s author Chaim Walder’s books be removed from the municipal libraries and all public institutions in Jerusalem.

====

Whaddya know?

Ofer Berkowitz is also linked to the New Israel Fund:

====

Here’s some more about the New Israel Fund, from the Jewish Virtual Library, HERE:

An international partnership of Israelis, Americans, Canadians, and Europeans, NIF pioneered the funding of Israel’s social change organizations and advocacy groups, and is widely credited as the founder of much of Israeli civil society. 

NIF has funded more than 750 Non-Government Organizations with approximately $200 million in 26 years….

NIF has long been a principal supporter of a pluralistic and tolerant Israeli culture that includes diverse approaches to Judaism and Jewish identity. 

NIF grantees are in the forefront of the struggle for civil marriage and other life-cycle events, recognition of non-Orthodox conversions, and the equal and unbiased allocation of government resources.

====

And you have to ask, who has been funding Berkovitch and his ‘secular, zionist’ Hitorerut party in Jerusalem?

Because his voter base in frum, Arab Jerusalem is pretty darned tiny.

It’s all the same people, with the same agenda to try to destroy Torah Judaism, authentic Jewish values, and Torah-observant Jewish communities.

====

In THIS post, I also bring more about the New Israel Fund / Reform movement funding all these ‘ortho-feminists’, who are also trying to dismantle our Jewish communities and values from the inside.

====

And lastly, here’s a relevant snippet from Chananya Weissman’s long discussion of how halacha was not followed in the initial Beit Din judgment against Walder (if anyone can really call it that…), and is still not being followed now either, in the ongoing hysterical discussion about him:

Rav Eliyahu and his kangaroo court did NOT hear from 22 victims.  They didn’t hear from ANY victims.  They heard ABOUT them.  Kind of like how people didn’t really die FROM covid, but with a negligible trace of it somewhere in their system.    

Notice that the Jewish Press in the same article wrongly stated that “the rabbis ruled him guilty following evidence from 22 victims”.  No such thing.  It was all hearsay. 

Eliyahu and company are either woefully negligent or criminally corrupt, or both.  According to the Rosh, they should be made to stand before a Beis Din and be punished for their actions.

====

So how many people ACTUALLY testified?

We were told it had to be a secret trial (against halacha) because it’s too painful for the victims to testify. But they didn’t! So who did? Why can’t we know who THEY are, and how THEY got their information?

I have no idea what Walder did or didn’t do, and no one supports abusers. 

However, this entire lashon hara campaign is based on trusting Eliyahu that he heard a lot of stories, he checked them all out, and Walder is a really bad guy, so go get him.  I’m sorry, but this is not how halacha works, and it runs roughshod all over the laws of lashon hara, which Eliyahu is obligated to follow the same as anyone else.

====

The Frankist-Freemasons are really taking the gloves off again, and coming after the orthodox community.

They are using the same tactics they always use: smear, spin, propaganderise, divide and conquer, bribe and threaten.

BH, this time around, more of us will recognise what’s happening, and head this off at the pass.

In the space of two days, I had a few different emails all pinging me ‘content’ coming from different people, that said exactly the same thing.

***UPDATES BELOW***

One was this (not shmirat eynayim friendly)

The path of healing after Chaim Walder’s abuse

====

As seems to happen so often, ‘Chaim Walder dissing’ seems to go hand-in-hand with ‘hardcore vaccine pushing.’

If you go HERE, to the Open Siddur Project website, you can read something this same person wrote back in 2021 called:

A prayer of gratitude upon receiving a COVID vaccination

====

And then, I also got this, sent by someone else, from the Jpropaganda site:

We have no right to stay silent for victims of sexual abuse – opinion

====

I was struck by the incredible similarity contained in so many of the statements being made about Chaim Walder, from so many disparate people.

Any judge will tell you that when two witnesses start telling you exactly the same story, it’s a likely bet they’re lying, and coordinated their accounts beforehand.

So, I started doing some digging, to see if there was a way to figure out what was actually going on, here.

====

Before we continue, come back with me seven years, when ‘content marketing’ was really becoming a thing.

Back then, I used to spend some time in my local start-up hub, as I didn’t have internet in my house (ah, the good old days…)

And there were a bunch of ‘start up entrepreneurs’ there, including a few guys trying to sell gizmos and gadgets to people, by paying ‘content marketers’ to either:

  1. Write under a totally false name on social media, to ‘puff’ the merchandise and / or
  2. Write under their own name, but totally scripted, to ‘puff’ the merchandise.

Those conversations used to drive me crazy.

Some prematurely balding guy would be sitting there getting all excited about how his cute, young content marketing missy was going to write a post today about how her new air conditioning unit had totally changed her life….

Bottom line: they were totally misleading people.

But people have to make a living somehow, right?

====

In 2021, we think we are so much more savvy than those gullible fools from 2015.

But most of us are probably wrong about that.

Before Covid took him out, my husband had a client who networked ‘social influencers’ to push products and ideas to their massive online audiences in all sorts of subtle ways. I was always amazed at how successful this guy seemed to be, and how much cash seemed to be sloshing through that ‘social influencer’ sluice.

So, when I took a look at the second commentator above – who somehow managed to get her opinion piece about Chaim Walder into the hallowed pages of the Jpropaganda!!! – it didn’t take long to surface the fact that she works as a content marketer:

====

Let’s just back up again, to do a ‘compare and contrast’ exercise between what happened with Chaim Walder, and what happened with Yehuda Meshi-Zahav.

This comes from Meshi-Zahav’s Wikipedia page, HERE:

In March 2021, following sexual abuse allegations against men, women and children, Meshi Zahav attempted to take his own life but failed and was left in a coma avoiding actual charges and trial.

====

There are actually compelling reasons to state that the real evidence against Meshi Zahav was actually much greater than anything being piled against Chaim Walder.

An actual police investigation had already been opened against him for a month, containing complaints from many different people, with actual, real names.

Meshi-Zahav had just been given the Israel Prize by the State of Israel, for going around telling everyone in the orthodox Jewish world how very dangerous Covid 19 was, and how important it was to do exactly what the government wanted.

Remember headlines like this?

====

And this:

====

And this, from the Ynet site:

====

Meshi-Zahav was one of ‘Israel’s most righteous Jews’, according to all his gushing write-ups from those same corrupt journalists who have been pushing the Covid lies for approaching two years now.

When other rabbis were speaking out to say we shouldn’t stop davening in shuls, shouldn’t stop holding weddings, shouldn’t stop going to mikvahs, and shouldn’t stop believing that Hashem was the true healer – there was Meshi-Zahav, slapping them down, and calling them ‘worse than holocaust deniers’.

What a prince!

So of course, someone of his moral calibre needed to get rewarded by the State for services rendered:

====

It seems that the Israel Prize, which led to even more gushing adoration in the State-controlled propaganda-press was the last straw for some of his victims.

Six of them came forward to press police charges against him in May 2021 – and the accusations were just as bad as those that appeared in the press against Walder:

The allegations against Mr Meshi-Zahav date back to the 1980s.

Haaretz spoke to six people who say he assaulted them when they were young children, teenagers, and in their 20s.

According to local media he was investigated by police over sexual assault allegations in 2011, but the case was later closed for lack of evidence.

The statute of limitations has run out on five of the six cases described in the paper, meaning police are unable to investigate them. However, they have now launched an investigation into the sixth case, in which a woman says she was raped by Mr Meshi-Zahav when she was in her 20s.

====

As soon as the dam burst on Meshi-Zahav, more and more real people with real names started to come forward with additional information and details.

====

When he saw he couldn’t weasel his way out having to face his day in court – because remember, there was a real, live police investigation going on here, for weeks already – Meshi-Zahav apparently attempted suicide and apparently became a vegetable as a result.

I say ‘apparently’, because I have no doubt that Meshi-Zahav was being ‘covered up for’ by people in the police and justice system for years, before the snowball got too big to stop:

[H]e was investigated by police over sexual assault allegations in 2011, but the case was later closed for lack of evidence.

I’d love to know WHO, exactly, investigated the allegations back in 2011, and WHO, exactly, decided to close the case for ‘lack of evidence’.

The police in Israel love nothing more than being able to slap another abusive ‘chareidi’ in jail.

So, it seems to me Meshi-Zahav had the sort of protektzia you only get, when you are part of that yucky group of predatory people who believe they can do whatever they want, because they are best friends and family with all the judges, prosecutors and politicians, many of whom are doing the same disgusting things.

====

Now, I don’t recall any of Meshi-Zahav’s victims speaking out after his attempted suicide.

It’s possible that they did, but if they did, the media just didn’t cover it.

Rather, my impression at the time was that even the secular media was spinning the line that ‘poor Meshi-Zahav tried to kill himself, because of all these horrible allegations, so now we’re going to leave him alone.’

Snippet from HERE:

The suicide attempt came ahead of a Channel 12News special slated to air on Thursday evening on the award-winning investigative journalism show Uvda (“Fact”) which explored what it called the silencing of Meshi-Zahav’s actions by Haredi society.

A police official said that investigators found a suicide note in Meshi-Zahav’s home.

Channel 12 News issued a statement saying that given recent developments, its editors “will debate whether to air the show at this time” and later said that it would continue with the airing of the investigation as planned.

A neighbor of the former ZAKA told the Walla news site that Meshi-Zahav was “very concerned” about the show and “said they it was going to be the end of him.”

====

Now, here is where I’d appreciate your help, dear reader, to start bottoming out what is really going on here.

When I search for any statements Shmuel Eliyahu made about Meshi-Zahav while all this was happening – nothing is coming back.

It could just be my browser, so please, if he did make the same sort of statements about Meshi-Zahav that he made about Chaim Walder, please post a link below, so we can at least see if he is consistent.

====

I take a look at ‘content marketer’ Bruria Efune’s Twitter account for March-May 2021 – not a peep about Meshi-Zahav, nor his victims.

I search for a poem, an impassioned video plea, a blog post, about Yehuda Meshi-Zahav’s victims from Chaya Lester – I can find absolutely nothing.

Part of doing this birur requires really checking people out in depth, to find out who they really are, and where they are really coming from, before you decide how much you really want to rely on them for guidance, and how much you want to be ‘influenced’ by them.

====

Sigh.

What about R’ Yitzhak Berkowitz, who felt compelled to ‘speak out’ about Chaim Walder?

What did he have to say about Meshi-Zahav?

Again: absolutely nothing.

Although, he did put out this weird video back in December 2020 as ‘sponsored content’ on the YWN propaganda site, where he is talking about individuals doing ‘awful things to children’ in the Sanhedria neighborhood.

I don’t really know what to make of it, honestly.

Maybe it’s an early attempt at ‘normalising’ all the AI facial recognition tech going up in Chareidi neighborhoods, or it could even be genuine (but still strange – the police in Israel have cameras everywhere, anywhere, without needing people to pay for them privately…)

====

Point is:

Why are all these people falling over themselves specifically about Chaim Walder, when I can’t seem to find anything – anything!!! – from any of them talking about Meshi-Zahav?

And that’s at least part of why this story of Chaim Walder is making no sense.

And why I suspect that ‘content marketers’ and ‘social influencers’ are being used to skew the public discourse around Chaim Walder, for reasons that are still not very clear.

But that will hopefully start to come more into focus, soon.

====

PS: It struck me that I have never seen any picture of the ‘permanently comatose’ Meshi-Zahav, nor any information about where the ‘permanently comatose’ Meshi-Zahav actually is, these days.

Cynical soul that I am, that strikes me as strange.

If anyone out there can help me verify that what we are being told about Meshi-Zahav being ‘permanently comatose’, and therefore unable to ever stand trial, is true, I would be very grateful for that information.

====

UPDATE:

THIS article apparently elucidates the evidence that Shmuel Eliyahu’s ‘Beit Din’ relied upon, to issue their public statements about Walder.

Snippet:

A post posted on the Facebook account of Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu’s office read:

“We checked and investigated and asked carefully, witnesses came before us who testified that he committed adultery with married women for many years until he caused them to divorce and be forbidden by their husbands.

“We also heard recordings in his voice that indicate serious acts of incest he committed, and we found him guilty without a doubt.” 

====

Again, I have no idea what Walder did, or didn’t do.

(And btw, neither do you…)

But this statement, above, is very problematic for a number of reasons, including:

  1. Walder HIMSELF wasn’t questioned by Shmuel Eliyahu’s Beit Din – and that is totally against halacha.
  2. There is a huge difference between someone who is having extra-marital affairs with adults – which is totally immoral, but at least consensual – and someone who is forcing themselves on minors.
  3. Recordings in his voice‘ – this troubles me the most of all.

Because it’s a standard ploy I’ve seen being used against other rabbis the ‘bad actors’ wanted to bring down, or control in some way, including the late kabbalist R’ Chaim HaKohen, aka ‘The Milkman’.

====

How did Shmuel Eliyahu KNOW that these ‘recordings in his voice’ were really Chaim Walder?

What technology expert did he have, what tests did he perform, that could prove these were genuine recordings of Chaim Walder?

Doesn’t he know, how so very easy it is to fake ‘voice recordings’ like this?

And even if Shmuel Eliyahu’s ‘Beit Din’ did actually prove, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that it was Chaim Walder’s actual voice on the recordings, (which I seriously doubt happened)  – this is still a long way off from hearing evidence from an actual, real life witness.

At best, it’s supporting material, that would help substantiate evidence from an actual person.

And then, that this evidence would be presented to the person being accused, and their response to it would either prove the case, or disprove the case.

Which simply didn’t happen with Chaim Walder.

====

Sigh.

The number of important halachas this guy and his ‘Beit Din’ broke, with their public condemnation of Chaim Walder, is astounding.

How can a Beit Din issue a public judgement before they even heard the other person’s side?

How can they issue statements, like they did, based solely on listening to easily-forged ‘voice recordings’?

The mind boggles.

TBC

====

UPDATE 2:

The outpouring of public hatred against Walder is continuing apace – even though the guy is dead.

Here are two more examples I just got sent:

Rav Moshe Meiselman: Walder is a Rasha Merusha

And this statement, from Torah U’Mesorah:

====

Again, I don’t know if he did what he’s accused of, or not – and neither do you.

But what I DO know, is that the heter to speak negatively about people in order to ‘warn’ others who may otherwise be hurt by them just don’t apply to someone who is dead.

All this just seems so overly personal…. like mamash there is some sort of personal vendetta going on, that goes above and beyond the discussion about the unproven accusations themselves.

====

I have never been a fan of Chaim Walder’s books.

I threw them out of my house 10 years ago, because I didn’t get a good vibe from them.

But when you compare and contrast the underwhelming response to Meshi-Zahav, and the totally OTT response to Walder, it really reinforces the notion that something very strange is going on here, behind the scenes.

And as always, we have to keep asking questions, and keep questioning narratives that make no sense, until God sees fit to enlighten us about what the truth really is.

====

UPDATE 3:

I just got sent this: Chaim Walder shilling for the Misrad HaBriut, gloves, masks and social-distancing pushing, back in April 2021.

====

At least for me, this makes Chananya Weissman’s possible theory about what might be going on here more plausible, i.e. that they came back to Walder to apply more manipulative pressure to ‘chareidi kids’ to jump on the vaccination bandwagon – and for whatever reason, he refused.

The timing of all this, just as they were rolling out Covid shots to the kids, is unlikely to be a coincidence.

====

You might also like this article:

Today, I had another long email from a commentator about Rav Berland.

***UPDATES BELOW***

Long story short, they are feeling very confused, because people they know are telling them ‘the opposite’ of what they are reading on my website, and in the One in a Generation Books about the Rav.

I spent half an hour explaining a few things to them, like this:

The same people who were ‘against’ the Rav, and excommunicating him and Shuvu Banim, are the same people who pushed this ‘Covid shot’ onto Am Yisrael.
They are the same people who do the State of Israel’s dirty business, all the time, in different areas.
Join the dots yourself, understand who has really been making these accusations, and remember the that Tzaddik is just a mirror….
Whatever people are accusing him of, is what is reflecting from themselves, in some way.
====

Then, I remembered they put out a video, with English subtitles, that explained a lot of the real story:

====
(Last I heard, two of the people named in this video as being the Rav’s main persecutors are now sitting in prison on murder charges – the same murder they tried to pin on the Rav….)
====

Here’s a few of the ‘stumbling blocks’ these people placed before the blind:

1) They forged a lot of videos and audios, that had the Rav saying things he never said.

And looky here – the same modus operandi is being used to convince us all that Rav Chaim Kanievsky issued multiple psakim that all pregnant women, small children, and everyone else in the orthodox community should get the dangerous Covid shots, that last I heard have killed at least 150,000 people in the USA alone.
This video, entitled Rav Chaim Kanievsky Says Children 5 and Up Should Get Vaccinated comes from the Matzav.com website HERE:
====

Watching this, I think I finally figured out how they are getting R’ Chaim to make the statements they want.

Yanky points to a WRITTEN question on the piece of paper that he places in front of Rav Chaim, that he already knows how the Rav will respond to.
This is NOT the same as the VERBAL question Yanky is then heard asking him.
You can see at the end, when the paper disappears Yanky has to yell in R’ Chaim’s ear very loudly, three times, asking for a ‘bracha’.

R’ Chaim is totally deaf. He is responding to the WRITTEN questions, not the VERBAL ones.

Sigh.
====

2) They made up a lot of ‘fake personas’ on Fakebook, all telling fake stories about the Rav.

Which was genius, because as this small group of men sat there pretending to be women, and writing outrageous lies about the Rav, thousands of people were conned into believing that they were ‘friends’ with someone who really had a first-hand story to tell.
I was reminded about that, when someone sent me this email, just now:

All the exact same people on my social media feed who were pushing the vaccine and I suspect are paid to do so are also pushing the Chaim walder story.

What’s annoying is how clearly (for me at least) these every day olim are being paid to manipulate us and people lap it up!
====

3) They bribed people to go against the Rav, and if that didn’t work, they then used threats of violence against them, their families and their organisations.

And it’s always the same people, doing the State of Israel’s dirty work, via their ‘family connections’ in the orthodox Jewish world.

Here’s a montage, to show you what I’m talking about, focusing in on one of the State’s main ‘paid Rav Berland-bashers’, Shmuel Eliyahu:

====

I found this clip on Chananya Weissman’s Rumble channel, HERE.

Chananya does a great job of picking apart all the hypocrisy and ‘false Torah’ going on here, from a man that publically blackened Walder’s name BEFORE he even convened a ‘Beit Din’ and heard Walder’s side of the story.

====

Here’s some more statements, and headlines, made by Shmuel Eliyahu, over the last few years:

====

====

====

====

====

====

====

Hopefully, you could spot the carrots and the sticks being used, here.

Interestingly, Shmuel Eliyahu was a very close friend of a ‘big rabbi in Tsfat’ who WAS found guilty of doing terrible things to women who came to see him.

But when I searched for statements from that period of time, about this person, from this ‘big defender’ of women’s rights in the orthodox world – nothing is coming up.

It could just be my browser, so feel free to send me some links to those comments, if I’m somehow just missing them.

I’m not holding my breath, tho.

====

The point is:

It’s always the same people, the same ‘names’, doing the State of Israel’s bidding, all the time.

When I was researching One in a Generation, I had a big list of the ‘rabbis’ that were apparently making public statements about the Rav, that were simply based on lies.

And most of these lies were not hard to bottom out, with even 2% effort and application, trying to find the truth.

====

Let’s give one example:

Nachman Shalom initially claimed he ‘climbed a lamp-post’ by the Rav’s flat in Beitar Illit to spy on him – and from this initial claim, flowed all his other stories.

I took my husband, we went to that flat in Beitar, and I scouted around it for the nearest lamp-posts.

I immediately saw that:

  1. There was no lamp-post either at the front or the back of the building that was close enough to enable Nachman Shalom to see into the specific flat where the Rav was staying.
  2. These lamp-posts are massive, and ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO CLIMB (unless you are a professional acrobat).

I even took a video of my husband trying to climb it, a few times.

Guess what: lamp-posts are DESIGNED like that, on purpose.

Just like that, I already knew that Nachman Shalom was lying through his teeth, about what he claimed he ‘saw’.

====

Right from the start of this Corona ‘plandemic’, I was attuned to the media’s lies, because I’d been trying to clarify how they pulled off what they did, against Rav Berland, for three years, already.

Right from the start, I was calling out all the BS around what was going on, and all the stories and lies that just didn’t add up.

That’s why I had an open house for the last two years, where everyone was welcome, where no-one had to wear a mask, social distance or vaccinate, and where people could still hug each other and interact normally.

Baruch Hashem.

It’s all in the Rav’s zchut.

So now, I invite you to go back to all those assumptions you made years back, that the media never lies; that the police and judiciary are interested in ‘justice’; that only secular people are corrupt and evil; and that ‘big rabbis in Bnei Brak’, or ‘big rabbis with great yichus‘ are above suspicion of wrongdoing to see what was really going on.

Do the birur.

Ask God to show you the truth.

Because when you finally figure it out on the ‘Rav Berland’ side of the equation, these people will never be able to fool you again.

UPDATE:

The following comes from R’ Chananya Weissman, via the Habayitah website HERE:

Rabbi Zev Leff on the Walder situation: https://www.torahanytime.com/#/lectures?a=173515

Rabbi Tau on the Walder situation (Hebrew): https://www.inn.co.il/news/536558

We have halachos for how to deal with rumors and accusations, and anyone who wishes to be considered a frum Jew must adhere to these halachos, period.

I will pay 5000 shekels to the first person who can show me where in the Chafetz Chaim or Shemiras Halashon it teaches the following:

1. We can — let alone must — conclude definitively that the accusations against Chaim Walder (all of which remain anonymous at this time) are true.

2. We should publicly condemn him in the most vicious of terms.

3. We should deprive his widow and orphans of parnassa.

==

I suspect that the vast majority of people who are doing these things have never learned Chafetz Chaim and Shemiras Halashon.  In light of that, they should probably exercise some caution before shooting from the hip.  

I will also advise them that if they are wrong, they are jeopardizing their share in the world to come.  Is it a smart gamble?

==

According to actual halacha, we are only allowed to be suspicious about Walder. We are not allowed to draw ANY conclusions based on the information provided. Those who don’t like the halacha are not morally superior or more compassionate. They are people who don’t keep halacha. 

I have a theory, and it’s only a theory, that the mafia who run our country wanted Walder to leverage his status to push the shots on children.  He drew a red line there despite kowtowing to the agenda in the past, and the mafia eliminated him.  Or perhaps he ran afoul of them some other way.  What we are being told is just a cover story. 

Again, this is only a theory, but it’s no less credible than the story that dozens of anonymous claims were filed against him, the only person whose name was mentioned is conveniently dead without having left over any testimony, and no police reports were ever filed.  The supposed victims had the strength to talk to a leftist reporter and Eliyahu in a kangaroo court, but no one else.  I’m not saying Walder did these things or didn’t do them — I have no idea, and neither do you — but this story doesn’t pass the smell test.

==

I am emphasizing two points:

1. We should not rush to judgment.

2. We should not trust the media and the kangaroo court that trampled on halacha.

Anyone who says we must automatically draw conclusions based on anonymous accusations must agree to the following.  If someone makes anonymous accusations against them or someone close to them — because they can’t bear the pain of revealing themselves — the self-righteous mob will accept the accusations as entirely true, no questions asked, and treat them exactly the same way.  And any potential accusers with an ax to grind or some other incentive know this in advance.  That’s the deal.

====

BTW, I agree with R’ Weissman’s theory, about why Chaim Walder suddenly got so ‘targeted’, regardless of the truth of the allegations against him.

Nothing is what it seems today.

And the cost of being on ‘the wrong side’ of the argument, both morally and spiritually, is increasing all the time.
