In case you didn’t realise it yet, the only reason the authorities are persecuting Rav Berland is because they know how ‘valuable’ he is, spiritually.

They have literally been trying to kill him in prison for months, but it just hasn’t worked – Hashem has been protecting him.

But, the Rav still needs our help.

They are trying to renege on the ‘deal’ they made with him – that was only made in first place because he sat in prison for a year and a half with no trial in sight – to send him back to prison, mamash, instead of house arrest.

They are literally trying to kill the Rav, lo alenu.

====

One of the conditions the courts made in the plea bargain deal is that the Rav would have to pay a massive, unheard-of fine of 2.5 million nis.

But not only that, the court also forbade Shuvu Banim from running any sort of public campaign to raise the money.

Who ever heard of ‘conditions’ like this?!

====

Time is running out to pay that fine, and the Rav simply doesn’t have the money.

But you know what’s really going on here?

What’s really going on is that we, the people, are getting a chance to help ourselves, by helping the Rav.

You think the Rav really needs us, to raise that money?

He doesn’t.

Some multi-millionaire could wake up tomorrow with the strange urge to donate everything required for the Rav, and that would be that.

But instead, they need to raise the money from every single one of us, all the people who are ‘behind’ the Rav, spiritually, in order to give us that zchut.

It’s like doing a pidyon nefesh for yourself, combined with doing a pidyon shuvuyim for the Rav.

====

That’s why so much of this otherwise hard to understand stuff is happening.

Just to give us the zchut of helping the Rav, in some way.

And that zchut is going to stand for us in so many ways, as we go forward into what are honestly going to be some really crazy times.

====

They are asking for every family to donate 1,000 shekels, to help pay the fine, and cover the burgeoning legal and medical expenses.

You can do it in on the Hebrew site HERE, and on the English site HERE.

====

BH, we are coming to the crunch point in this whole, crazy, nanotech-vaccine-fake-Covid 19-pandemic.

At some point very soon, the gloves come off, and all this is going to come out in the open.

That’s why they took the Rav out right at the beginning of this fake pandemic, and arrested him on fake, ridiculous charges or charging money for fake cures.

Let’s just read that again, shall we:

“Charging money, for fake cures.”

The whole world is a mirror.

====

Once the Rav gets out of prison, we all get out.

They know that, and that’s why they are trying to prevent them from happening.

So, dig deep, and do your bit for the Rav.

Because really, the first and main person you’ll help by contributing is YOURSELF.

They are asking for every family to donate 1,000 shekels, to help pay the fine, and cover the burgeoning legal and medical expenses of Rabbi Eliezer Berland.

I was going to leave Surfside alone for a bit, and tell you about the bonfire I did yesterday.

I am very blessed to be renting a house with a garden, and in that garden, I’ve built a fire pit. And in that fire pit, I love to burn bits of wood.

And so yesterday, I invited a few ‘mum’ friends who have been looking after their families 24/7 for a year and a half, and asked them to come chill out with me.

It was SO nice.

We drank some kombucha, we played some guitar, we sang (really out of tune…) and just took it easy.

It was just so restorative, in so many ways, to remember there are other people out there my own age, who I’m not married to, who at least sometimes want to hang out with me.

During COVID, I had many long months where I forgot that.

====

So, I was going to write more of a ‘Secret Diary of a Jewish Housewife’ piece today, about that fire.

But instead, I find myself returning to events in Surfside, because not unlike what happened in Meron, I have the feeling that if the ‘official narrative’ we are being told is allowed to take hold unchallenged, the 150+ people who were murdered in that ‘controlled demolition’ – and their families – will never see justice done, for what’s really going on here.

====

Yesterday, I got a call from a close acquaintance, who I met via my blog years ago, and we’ve stayed in touch periodically for years.

She told me that her sibling is one of the people still missing, presumed dead, in Surfside.

It’s a small Jewish world, and much like Meron before it, there is barely a degree or two of ‘separation’ between all of us, and the people who have died or been directly affected by the collapse of 8777 Collins Avenue.

====

Then I checked my emails this morning, and another reader sent me a couple more interesting things.

Thing Number One is THIS, from the antisemitism.co.il site:

USA – The synagogue of Bal Harbour evacuated after receiving a bomb threat

Belle Harbour, Miami, FL – A synagogue in Belle Harbour Miami received a bomb threat and all were evacuated. At approximately 4:30pm today and phone call was placed to The Shul by a woman who stated that the Champlain Tower partial collapse was not an accident.
She stated that it was a coordinated bombing and that The Shul of Bal Harbour along with other buildings in the area are being and will be targeted.
As a precautionary measure Shul security along with the help of Surfside police and police K9’s have performed a controlled evacuation and locked down The Shul and taken measures to sweep the building and construction site for any and all possible explosives devices….
As of 7:43pm the Miami Dade K-9 and Bomb Squad have found no potential devices and have given the all clear and operations have resumed back to normal.

====

Is this legit?

My correspondent asked me.

Before I could even try to answer that question, I first decided to take a closer look at ‘The Shul of Bal Harbour‘, who runs it, who built it – all those small details that start to build up into more of a correct picture of what might really be going on.

I start scooting around, and very quickly get to the Wikipedia site for Rabbi Shalom Lipskar, snippet below:

Sholom Dovber Lipskar (born 1946) is a Chabad rabbi who was principal of the Landow Yeshiva in Miami Beach in 1969. He founded The Shul of Bal Harbour in Surfside, Florida, as well as the Aleph Institute in 1981.

====

He sounds like a very impressive person!

But what’s that ‘Aleph Institute’ all about? Click, click, click, and we get to THIS, the organisation’s official site.

Here’s a little of what we learn there:

The Aleph Institute is a national, not-for-profit 501(c)(3), publicly-supported charitable institution founded by Rabbi Sholom D. Lipskar under the direction of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson O.B.M.

For over thirty five years, Aleph has been serving society by:

(1) providing critical social services to families in crisis;

(2) addressing the pressing religious, educational, humanitarian and advocacy needs of individuals in the military and institutional environments; and

(3) implementing solutions to significant issues relating to our criminal justice system, with an emphasis on families, faith-based rehabilitation and preventive ethics education.

====

Also, very impressive.

The ‘Aleph Institute’ and Rabbi Lipskar have three main programs they run:

“Operation Enduring Traditions” Programs for the Military:

Aleph supports and assists thousands of Jewish men and women serving this great nation in the U.S. Armed Forces with Jewish books, materials, and moral and spiritual support.

Spark of Light Prison Programs:

Most people are not aware of the plight of the five thousand Jews in prisons all across America today….

Aleph F.E.E.L.S. Family Programs:

Aleph sponsors support groups that bring together the spouses of inmates allowing them to compare and discuss their physical, emotional and spiritual needs.

====

====

On top of all this good work, the ‘Aleph Institute’ is also working very closely with the US military as an ‘Ecclesiastical Endorsing Agency’:

In recognition of the need for Jewish Chaplaincy in the military, the United States Department of Defense appointed The Aleph Institute as an Ecclesiastical Endorsing Agency to recruit, vet and endorse Rabbis for the Army, Navy and Air Force, Active, Reserve and National Guard.

Since its appointment in 2006, The Aleph Institute has endorsed Jewish Chaplains for the Army, Navy and Air Force, and appoints and works with Jewish Lay Leaders who assist Chaplains in providing leadership at military installations and ships at sea where Jewish Chaplains are unavailable.

====

And here’s a snippet about the Aleph Institute’s work with ‘Clemency Cases’:

We are very proud of our clemency work — much of which was done in collaboration with partnering organizations that reflect the diversity of the men and women of this country. Thank G-d, we were able to assist in providing a new lease on life for so many shattered families.

It is demonstrably false that contributions play any role in Aleph’s work, including clemency. In compliance with Aleph’s no-donation policy for advocacy, numerous donations have been declined or refunded, over the years. 

====

Hmm.

I went back to the Wiki for the Aleph Institute, to learn a little more about that side of things, snippet below:

The Aleph Institute advocates on behalf of many of the Jewish prisoners in the US as well as in some instances, prisoners abroad. Jacob Ostreicher credited the institute with helping to gain his freedom through contacting actor Sean Penn, who made a direct appeal to Bolivian President Evo Morales.

In 2010, Aleph Institute joined 200 Jewish organizations petitioning then Governor Charlie Christ for a stay of execution on behalf of Martin Grossman who was convicted of the 1984 killing of a law enforcement officer. Pope Benedict XVI also sent a personal request to commute the sentence but the execution proceeded and Grossman was killed in 2010.

====

Here’s a bit more about Jacob Ostreicher, from Wikipedia:

Jacob Ostreicher (born February 7, 1959) is an American businessman and investor. In June 2011, he was arrested in Santa CruzBolivia, while overseeing a rice growing agricultural venture that he had invested in, and was jailed for 18 months on suspicion of money laundering, though he was never formally charged.

Ostreicher maintained his innocence and stated that the allegations by the Bolivian government were “the scam of the century”. His family and friends initiated a public effort to plea for his release, and actor-activist Sean Penn visited Ostreicher in Bolivia and pledged to work for his release….

On December 16, 2013, Ostreicher arrived in the US after 30 months in Bolivia. He was reported to be in an undisclosed location with Sean Penn and receiving medical attention. It was unclear how he had fled the country.

In May 2014 Ostreicher revealed that after his release, Penn had personally nursed him back to mental and physical health at the latter’s home.

====

(Is it just me, or does all this stuff about Sean Penn’s involvement seem a little, ahem, strange?)

In any case, let’s park that side of things, for now.

We’ve done enough to fill out the picture, quite considerably, that ‘The Shul’ in Bal Harbour – via the Aleph Institute – appears to be keeping company with a lot of military personnel, has close connections with the US army, and is also working for clemency on behalf of a lot of interesting people.

So now, with all this background, let’s go back to the question above, asked about this statement:

[T]he Champlain Tower partial collapse was not an accident.

[The caller] stated that it was a coordinated bombing and that The Shul of Bal Harbour along with other buildings in the area are being and will be targeted.
====

Is this legit?

Probably, yes.

But probably also, things are not exactly what they appear to be.

====

Moving on, that same email correspondent sent me a link to THIS – an audio interview with Mr Nir, Sarah Nir’s husband, on the Yiddish24.com site.

You remember I’ve been keeping track of the many different versions of the ‘miraculous escape’ story on the site?

Well, now I have yet another version, which muddies the waters even more. Here’s a partial transcript, which I’m writing verbatim, despite the poor English and grammar, to make sure I’m not putting any words into Mr Nir’s mouth that he himself didn’t say.

====

[From around the 3 minute mark in the interview:]

While my wife is speaking with him [the security guard in the front lobby], the garage collapsed.

And they didn’t believe that she just go and saw it. She saw all the cars on the ground [or could possibly be ‘underground’].

So she told my kids that they are left, start to leave! Because they start to…Before, they heard like a wall collapse. The wall collapsed, and ehh, so they ran away from the the apartment.

But they being in the hall, close to the phone. And when they saw that the first floor, the garage, collapsed, they errr, they decide they must run away.

So they left to the building through the [long pause] door. And they just crossed the street, to the other side. They they heard a big boom, but didn’t look back.

==

[4.27 min] But all the area was with white dust. And they start to run, and they didn’t see each other from how much white dust. And that’s how they escaped…

My wife said ‘I felt Hashem just told the building, Excuse me, don’t collapse until they leave. Then it collapsed.’

[Question in Yiddish]

[5.25 min] I was in Atlanta. And they called me at 1:30 screaming and yelling and my wife, errr… When they ran with all the dust, the white dust and everything, my wife said, ‘I can’t breathe, I need water’. And nobody opened, nobody do nothing. Nobody was there.

And my son was the first one to call the police, and he called six times the police, before they came.

==

[5:45 min] They didn’t believe because my wife had start to scream, had start[ed] to scream that [it] is like [an] earthquake. And, er, they probably thought that somebody drunk maybe calling. And they see that nothing happened. Nobody said that, er…. So I think that’s what caused….

But, but, er, I think that there’s a lot of questions, because the alarm didn’t work, the security….

My daughter said that the noise was before. Around 11 o’clock it start.

And, er, so I believe that if somebody will [would have] pay attention, if the guard also pay attention what’s going on, maybe a lot of people can be saved….

==

[7:10 min] Any my wife, she left all her ID, phone, credit cards, money, everything, at the house. So my daughter left without nothing, my wife left without nothing, and the only, er, contact that we had is through my son. And after that they ran. My wife ran and tried to get water and all and er, some place.

And they ran up to 4.30 in the morning.

So they ran hours, maybe four hours, up to four hours, until they reach really an angel, a convert person, who convert to be Jewish. His n ame is Yona ben Avraham. God send him.

He saw my wife with my daughter, exhausting, dirty, probably panic a little bit, because my wife screamed to me, ‘I think the world is collapse. I don’t know what’s going on. I think our building is collapse, it’s probably earthquake. Who knows what.’

She was so afraid to look on the back, so she just, they ran. I think up to almost 5 o’clock maybe, or something like this, [almost] after.

==

The Residence Inn is approximately 700 metres away from where the Champlain Towers collapsed, on Collins Ave.

====

[8.34 min] And the guy saw them and he said: ‘Come on, come on. Come with me. Meet me at the Residence Inn, and I’ll give you a room. And when she came, he came after one or two minutes, and he set up a room for my wife and my daughter.

[8.58 min] My son was close to the building. He was shocked. He didn’t believe what the damage is. He always thought, er, that if they him go in, so he take all his stuff. He’s just graduated from a university, and he thought ‘hey, I need my resume. I need all my papers and everything.’

[9:28 min] But after a day, he start to realise that he cannot get nothing, unfortunately.

So, we lost everything. We don’t have insurance. But thank God, I am safe. And I am happy. But I didn’t sleep all night and imagine that you cannot talk to your wife and your daughter, and you don’t know they’re running, you don’t know what’s going on. Because my son wasn’t close to them.

====

[Skipping the next few minutes, where Mr Nir discusses ‘the message’ God is trying to give the Jewish people via all these tragedies.]

====

[11.45 min] We living in the hotel, in, er, Residence Inn. And, er, I think Thursday, er I think we need to find another place, I’m not sure yet. But I know the end of the week, is the Red Cross stop to pay for this [hotel room].

[12:35 min] We know several people that unfortunately, er, they are dead. I pray to Hashem to make, er, really a miracle, that they will be alive. But honestly, er…

It’s not just the dust that you can breathe. I see how much collapse they have, like a [unclear] pile. A big pile of, er, stone, rocks, and you know, concrete, and er, dust, and sand. 

And not just this. They have several fires….

====

[Skipping a couple of minutes until question in Yiddish about whether there was a blackout in the building.]

[14:40 mins] No. It was one apartment that the couple been saved. And we know them also very well. His parents we met, his name is Arik / Eric Tsiyon [?] 

And he came the same night, around I think 11.30 or so, er, or 12 o’clock, from New York. And he arrived, and his wife, she’s pregnant. And they came home, and they didn’t have power. And, he said I’m not going to stay in this 80 some degrees without aircondition[ing] and light.

[15:40 min] So, they decide to go to the hotel. And one hour after they arrive to [the] hotel, I think about, he heard about this, he saw lightningand all this. And he go back to the building, but from the beach, like the back of it.

When he saw everything, he was like ‘lost his mind’. Then he realised what the miracle that Hashem did to him.

====

Wow.

So many contradictions between this account, from Mr Nir, and other details and accounts that we’ve covered previously, about what was going on with the cars in the carpark, and the timing of the collapse, and the black-out.

BH, I will go through everything again carefully, to try to get what we definitely DO know together, so we can start to figure out what’s possible, what’s probable, and what’s totally IMPOSSIBLE, when it comes to how that Surfside building collapsed.

But one thing I can tell you for sure:

The media is blatantly lying to us all about this.

====

How do I know?

Let me give one cogent example to demonstrate. This snippet comes from this story on the Daily Wire, posted on June 28, 2021, entitled:

“It started from the bottom.”

“It does appear to start either at or very near the bottom of the structure,” a consulting engineer who is not affiliated with the search and rescue operation told the New York Times. “It’s not like there’s a failure high and it pancaked down.”…

In a separate report, Fox News noted that a female resident of the towers, who is now missing, called her husband shortly before the collapse and told him that it appeared the building’s pool had disappeared into a sinkhole.

“A woman missing in the deadly Florida condo building collapse called her husband as the tragedy unfolded — and said she saw a sinkhole where the pool used to be before the line went dead,” Fox reported.

====

Here’s a clear shot of the pool TWO DAYS AFTER THE COLLAPSE:

====

No sinkhole in sight.

And yet, MSM news sites are spreading this ‘story’ that the pool disappeared into a sinkhole, with the same breath that they tell us it ‘started from the bottom’ – when the only CCTV evidence available clearly shows the buildings collapsing from the top.

So, do you believe them?

====

Also, the underground garage didn’t collapse first – because if it did, the rescue crews wouldn’t have been filmed trying to access the big pile of pancaked building by wading through thigh-deep water via that selfsame un-collapsed underground parking.

And I already showed you pictures of the totally ‘uncollapsed’ outside parking area, on the right, that’s partially visible from the lobby:

====

And the last thing to say, is that not in my worst nightmare did I think you could get to DAY 6 after this event, and they still haven’t even really begun to clear the rubble away.

If you wanted to make sure that anyone still trapped in that building would definitely be dead by the time you got to them, this is the way to do it.

And, I also suspect that the site is so ‘complicated’ to clear, because it wasn’t brought down by conventional means, but by ‘Directed Energy’ weaponry that literally pulverised everything, and everyone.

That’s why they started asking family members of the victims for DNA samples already by Day Two.

====

I suspect that just like in the WTC, there will be very little in the way of identifiable human remains even when they do get around to finally clearing the rubble away.

And they’ll blame that on all these weird ‘deep fires’ that apparently took hold when the site was soaked with a foot of rainwater; when there was no electricity to ‘spark’ any fires; and when there was almost zero of the oxygen required, by physics, to enable a ‘deep fire’ to burn.

But don’t believe them, when that happens.

Because they are lying through their teeth.

====

So, check and verify every single detail you are being told about this story.

Compare it to the hard facts, the clear images post-collapse, and keep sifting the truth from the lies, as part of the ‘Surfside Reality Check’ we need to keep applying to this information, if we ever want a hope of the real story being told one day.

We owe it to the people who were killed, to not let their murderers get away with it.

And the first place that starts is by accepting this was no ‘accident’, or ‘structural decay’ issue.

It was pre-meditated mass-murder.

====

You might also like this article:

I updated the last post with more info, but I just found something else, so I’m pulling it out into a separate post.

***New updates below***

Let’s start with the ‘UPDATES’, below, then I’ll add in a couple of new pieces of information that are even more puzzling to me.

====

[Update 2, from the previous post:]

A new ‘story’ is coming out, that a missing resident called her husband before the collapse to tell him a sink hole had developed in the pool, in Surfside.

You can see that account HERE.

It’s amazing how this woman noticed that in the middle of an electricity black-out across the whole building, in the very middle of the night.

And it’s even more amazing that she didn’t raise the alarm at that point, if this story is true.

But what’s really interesting me are a couple of the initial comments beneath that ‘story’, where increasingly you find the real news:

Comment 1:

Ah, and here, when finding out about the incident, I was able to discern (the morning of) that Google Maps had initially tagged the wrong building. I did this by comparing the pool configuration to the other buildings in that area. It apparently didn’t sink very far.

Comment 2:

So many condos in the area are going up for sale……massed exodus !

====

Could we be seeing another hidden ‘real estate’ motive starting to swim into view here?

I mean, putting around ‘stories’ that expensive beachfront properties are suddenly collapsing in the middle of the night due to sinkholes, and running stories non-stop emphasising how ‘unsafe’ all these 40 year old structures suddenly are in that area is one sure-fire way to drive down property prices.

And when prices fall radically, some ‘lucky’ real estate developer can then step in, buy these properties for a song, and redevelop into something 4 times as expensive.

How I wish I was being sarcastic here.

But I’m not.

The only thing worse than their murderous tendencies is their greed.

====

So, let’s see how this story develops, shall we?

And let’s keep a careful eye on which property developers ‘ride to the rescue’ of all these poor people trying to sell their previously valuable beachfront condos for thrupence in order to avoid getting ‘pancaked’ in the middle of the night.

Because I’m sure we’ll learn an awful lot, if we do.

====

[Update 3, from the previous post:]

A reader sent me screenshots of the ‘missing’ Collive article mentioned above. I’m bringing the relevant sections below:

====

There’s a few things I find puzzling about this.

Firstly, how was Mrs Nir checking the emails in her home office when there was a building-wide electricity black-out, as we’ve been told from other people who actually left the building because of that black-out, to spend the night in a hotel?

Second, is there a record of the building security guard calling the police, to make a complaint about the noise, as per Mrs Nir’s account.

Third, if the construction noise was so loud in the middle of the night, why were none of the other residents were making complaints about it?

Let me put it out there as a question:

Did any other residents who left the building before the collapse, or who were in the still standing section of the building, also hear this construction noise?

This is a crucial piece of information, because ‘sink holes’ do NOT make construction noise in the middle of the night.

====

And lastly, Mrs Nir says that:

“As I was standing in the lobby, I saw the parking lot of the building collapsing, like an abyss that has opened up beneath it….She once again turned to the security guard and ask [sic] to call the police, this time reporting an earthquake. “There was a very loud noise,” she told him.”

 ====

If the noise was that loud, why wasn’t the security guard hearing it himself?

(I know, maybe on his phone, like everyone else, but even so….)

There should also be a record of the security guard making a call about this sink hole / earthquake to the police, or at least a partial call. He had enough time to do that, as the account shows that Mrs Nir then went back upstairs to wake up her children and get them out of the building before it collapsed.

So, I’d really like to hear the transcripts of the security guard’s call to the police, about the massive sink hole that apparently opened up in the car park just before the building ‘collapsed’ in a controlled demolition.

I have a feeling that’s never going to happen, but let’s see.

====

In the meantime, this prompted me to take a look at ‘8777 Collins Avenue’ on Google Earth.

I wanted to see where the pool was – where the ‘mystery woman’ from the Fox News report said she saw a sink hole open up – and where the carpark was – where Mrs Nir from this Collive report says she saw a sink hole upen up.

And now, the plot thickens.

====

This is a shot of 8777 Collins avenue, from the top:

====

According to Mrs Nir’s account, she saw a sink hole opening up in the outside carpark marked above, which is adjacent to the front lobby of the building.

But here’s the thing: the carpark is next to the part of the building that DID NOT collapse.

====

I checked to see if there was any other car park that Mrs Nir could have been referring to.

The entrance to the underground parking is on the opposite side of the building from the outside carpark, and not visible from the lobby.

====

So, the only place where a carpark is visible from the lobby is that external carpark marked below:

====

Which begs the obvious question:

IF a ‘sink hole’ opened up in that external carpark shortly before the controlled demolition that took down the whole back of the building, then WHY didn’t the front of the building collapse?

It’s still standing now.

And in the meantime, strangely, the ‘strongest’ part of the building – the middle part that was the furthest away from the pool, and the furthest away from this external carpark – came down first, within 5 seconds.

====

I’m also wondering how it was possible to see a sink hole open up in the outside carpark in the middle of the night, from inside the lobby, if it was pitch black.

And I’m also wondering if any cars were swallowed up in this ‘sink hole’, as presumably you’d expect to find in the middle of a carpark.

That part of the building is still standing.

These questions should not be hard to answer.

====

If any of my readers live close to Surfside, and have 5 minutes to spare, I’d love some shots of the carpark, if that’s possible.

Because if there wasn’t a sink hole, or an earthquake – then we are certainly looking at a controlled demolition.

And if we are looking at a controlled demolition – then this is mass murder.

And if it’s mass murder, the culprits need to be identified, and brought to justice, before they kill anyone else.

====

NOW, for the even newer stuff.

After I wrote that last ‘update’, I went HERE and saw this video:

====

42 seconds into the interview, I suddenly realise that they are showing an aerial shot of the front of 8777 Collins Avenue, and that external carpark.

And that’s when I realise that the carpark is totally intact, and there is no sink hole.

In fact, you can still see cars parked in it:

 

 

====

This is leaving me very confused about Mrs Nir’s account of why she decided to rush out of the building with her children in the middle of the night, shortly before the controlled demolition that took down the back half.

Here’s what she said, in the Collive story:

“As I was standing in the lobby, I saw the parking lot of the building collapsing, like an abyss that has opened up beneath it….She once again turned to the security guard and ask [sic] to call the police, this time reporting an earthquake. “There was a very loud noise,” she told him.”

====

Any parking lot that is visible from the front lobby of 8777 Collins Avenue is still intact, as you can see from the aerial shot above.

So, what’s the real reason Mrs Nir rushed out of that building in the middle of the night with her children, literally a minute before it ‘unexpectedly’ came down?

Did she have nevua, or was she given a warning to flee for her life?

====

TBC

====

UPDATE:

I found a Russian Chabad site, HERE, with another version of Sarah Nir’s miraculous escape.

Here’s the pertinent snippet:

I got back to Miami after midnight-around 12: 30 at night. Then she heard a frightening, strange sound. It was like something was exploding and collapsing. She went down to the concierge and complained about the noise.Then her eyes fell on the parking lot: it was filled with construction debris, something was falling from above

In an instant, she ran into the apartment, woke up the children and dragged them outside. She ran with them away from the building and shouted: “Save yourselves! An earthquake!”

© Источник: https://moshiach.ru/view/miracles/18413.html

====

So in this version, Mrs Nir says she saw the parking lot ‘filled with construction debris’ – which again is strange.

Here’s the screenshot of where the parking lot is located, in relation to the front lobby:

====

It’s next to the part of the building THAT DID NOT FALL DOWN, and that is still standing now.

So, where did this ‘construction debris’ that she apparently saw falling into this carpark come from?

And if you go back and take a look at the video of Surfside collapsing HERE, you’ll see that everything happened so fast, there is no way that Mrs Nir could have seen something start to collapse at the back, then rush to her apartment to wake her kids up, and then rush out the front lobby again in time to escape.

The whole back collapsed from start to finish in 12 seconds.

====

Here’s some more ‘post-collapse’ shots that show, unequivocably, that neither the external carpark, nor the swimming pool:

EXPERIENCED A SINK HOLE; or

WAS FILLED WITH CONSTRUCTION DEBRIS

====

====

This shot below was taken by a ‘first responder’ straight after the collapse, at dawn:

You can see that even after the back has totally collapsed, there is no sink hole, and there is no ‘construction debris’ visible in the carpark.

====

And here’s some shots of the perfectly intact swimming pool.

It still has water in it… so clearly, it didn’t even spring a leak EVEN AFTER the building pancaked next to it.

====

====

Why is all this stuff relevant?

Because the media is lying to us, again.

Remember THIS headline, from yesterday, from Fox News?

====

Honestly, does that pool look ‘caved in’ to you?

The lies are so blatant, even from ‘respectable’ MSM channels, that more than anything else tells you that there is a massive cover-up going on here, and that the building came down due to foul play, as part of a ‘controlled demolition’.

====

I’m going to continue to keep my eyes peeled for more information, and strange anomalies.

And please, continue to send me details as you hear them or find them – even if they don’t accord with the theory I’m laying out here.

The truth is the most important thing to get at here.

====

UPDATE 2:

I just came across this video, done the morning after the collapse, by CBS, where resident Barry Cohen is explaining what he experienced and saw.

(It’s strangely shmirat eynayim friendly.)

====

I want to bring the full transcript of what Barry experienced, as it gives way more credence to the ‘Directed Energy Weapon’ hypothesis for how the building was brought down.

But before I do that, let me also draw your attention to what’s going on with that external carpark, which does look like it ‘split’ at the back of the building:

====

I know that search and rescue terms tunnelled into the underground carpark to try to find survivors, so it could be from that.

See more HERE, screenshot below:

====

Or, it could have occurred as a result of the building coming down.

Or, it could have happened before the collapse, as described in Sarah Nir’s Collive account – which doesn’t tally with the two other accounts where she says she saw the carpark fill with construction debris.

====

Here’s what Barry Cohen has to say:

We opened up the door.

First we heard a crash of lightning, I thought it was lightning. And it went on for 30 seconds I’d say, at least.

And it was as loud as you could ever… the loudest thing I’ve ever heard.

Now I know what a building collapsing sounds like.

And we went out on our balconies and Surfside police were already there, and we said ‘what shall we do?’ And they said, ‘go back inside’, we don’t know what’s going on.’

And then we went out of our apartment to try to get out of the building, and we opened up the door to our apartment and there used to be a hundred yard lobby, hallway, and it was rubble. Gone. Gone.

====

Who ‘hears’ lightning for 30 seconds?

And then a whole building falls down in 12 seconds flat?

====

And lastly, just wanted to include a picture of the inside lobby of the Surfside Condo:

====

It’s hard to understand how you’d see anything happening on either side of the building, from this front lobby, where presumably Sarah Nir was talking to the concierge.

The doors on the left lead out to the front of the building, which faces on to the main road.

But why would she say that’s what happened to get her out of the building ASAP, if it didn’t really?

TBC

====

UPDATE 2:

Here’s another version of Sarah Nir’s story, this time from the YeshivaWorldNews site, snippet below:

Sora, a mother of 6, had returned that night from a Chabad gathering after midnight and began hearing ominous creaking sounds. At first, she thought someone was doing home construction work and wondered who would do such noisy construction work at such a late hour.

Sara’s husband was out of town and she was in her ground-floor condo with her two children, ages 15 and 25. She decided to complain about the noise to the security guard at the entrance of the building.

As the noise grew louder and louder, the security guard told her he would check out the source of the noise. Suddenly, Sora saw that the parking lot was filling with debris from the building that was beginning to collapse. She rushed back to her apartment and saw her 15-year-old daughter in the hallway.

She screamed at her and her son to run: “There’s an earthquake!” she screamed.

Her daughter insisted that she couldn’t go outside in her pajamas but Sora responded hysterically: “Run, there’s an earthquake!” Her daughter draped two towels over herself and the three of them ran outside toward the street. When they got there, they saw the building collapse in front of their eyes.

====

The front part of the building didn’t collapse, so that concierge is probably one of the people who made it.

I’d love to hear an interview with him.

Call me pedantic, but there are just parts of this story that are bothering me. A lot.

The back of the building came down in 12 seconds flat.

That just doesn’t ‘fit’ with having the time to see debris falling into the parking lot ‘from the building that was beginning to collapse’, then running back to your apartment – even on the ground floor – then having an argument with your daughter, and then running back out the front door of the lobby again.

Could a person really do all this in 12 seconds?

====

I know we all have a tendency to exaggerate and embroider dramatic events in our lives – I’m also guilty of that.

So there could be a very simple explanation for the parts of Mrs Nir’s ‘miracle’ story that just don’t add up, and also for how each version seems to morph into something different with each re-telling.

Maybe, she just had a gut feeling to get out of the building, and then embellished it with all this other stuff to make it more ‘dramatic’. 

I don’t know.

Or maybe….

There’s another, more disturbing explanation for Sarah Nir’s nevua about what about to happen.

It’s an uncomfortable thought.

But there are 150 people dead, whose bodies still haven’t been recovered. And every avenue has to be properly explored to figure out what really happened here.

====

UPDATE 3:

Another site, another version of the miraculous story.

This one comes from HERE, snippet below:

Nir, the son of an Israeli father, described how his mother went to check what had happened when the first part of the building collapsed, apparently a parking area, and then raised the alert for him and his sister. All three survived the disaster.

“We heard a lot of noise going on in the ceiling,” he said. “Minute by minute it got worse, it got more intense.”

Moments later a rumble shook the building and “we all panicked a bit.”

The family at first thought it was an earthquake and left their home to exit the building. Outside, Nir said, dust was billowing about from the parts of the building that had already collapsed.

Wasting no more time, the family ran for their lives, escaping with just moments to spare as the main part of the building collapsed, throwing up clouds of dust that chased them down the street.

“We couldn’t breathe,” he said.

Nir estimated that the whole process was no more than a few minutes. He said the first sounds of the collapse were heard at around 1:15 a.m. Thursday and that the entire building came down by 1:19.

====

Except… it wasn’t four minutes, it was literally 12 seconds.

And there was no debris in the outside parking lot.

And the underground parking was still so stable – even after the collapse – the Rescue services shored it up and then tried to get access to victims by digging through from the underground parking.

So, really not at all clear what’s going on here, nor why all these conflicting versions of the ‘miraculous escape’ are being told.

====

On a separate note:

Can anyone out there help me identify who owned the apartment that looks to be on the tenth floor, in the middle of the building, next to the two ‘flashes’ of light highlighted below?

It’s almost the only apartment in the whole complex with lights on, in the middle of the hours’ long ‘black out’.

That’s kinda weird.

I just wanted to start a thread to keep new information together, going forward.

***Even More Important Updates Below***

I learnt from the Meron investigation that when things are kept in one place, as much as possible, just makes it way, way easier to share the information around, and for more of us to apply our minds and our hearts to understanding what’s really going on here.

And to focus our prayers for the people who were killed.

Because just like Meron, this was no accident, and it was deliberately planned.

That building was ‘taken down’, it didn’t collapse.

The main question is why, and in good time, I’m sure more information will come out to help us understand that part of the equation too, if we have our eyes open to see it when it appears.

====

So, let’s start with some new information, then try to sum up where we’ve already got to, with God’s help.

  1. There are more and more statements coming out about an unexplained power outtage that occurred for a few hours, before the Surfside condos were brought down.

I just got this over email:

My friend lives a block away from the condo. Her friend came home late at night from a flight. They lived in that condo that collapsed. That night when they came home, there was a power outage. It was so hot, and the wife is pregnant, they decided to leave and go to a hotel. They left about 30 minutes before the condo collapsed.

As mentioned, we had guests on Shabbat who told us a similar story about a family they knew, first-hand, who also left the condo building to go to a hotel because there had been an hours-long power outtage, before it collapsed.

====

2. Despite this ‘power outtage’, there are new reports of residents hearing some sort of construction work going on in the building around 12:30am.

I was sent THIS link to a story on the Collive website, that doesn’t seem to be working:

====

It’s the small things like this that show you that you are on the right track…

Luckily, I think it’s the same account that commentator Nechama linked to HERE. Here’s a longish snippet:

Sarah Nir, a Chabad mother of 6, returned from a Hisvaadus [Chabad spiritual meeting] at 12:30 A.M and heard strange noises in the building. She thought that somebody was doing renovations but couldn’t understand why they were doing them at such an hour. Nir woke her 15-year-old and 25-year-old children who were with her…and went to the building’s guard on the ground floor to complain about the noise, which was getting louder. Suddenly she saw the car park filling with debris and told her children to run outside since there was “an earthquake.”

…[T]he three ran out and saw the building crumbling in front of their eyes….

…Gavriel Nir, Sarah’s son, told Israel’s Channel 13 that the collapse occurred in three stages and took a few minutes. First, he and his family heard noise from aboveand saw dust falling. They then heard a boom that they thought was an earthquake and rushed out of the building. Finally, from outside, they saw the collapse, with white clouds of dust following them as they ran.

====

3. Video showing flashes of light and dust falling inside the building immediately before it collapsed.

(BTW – I just changed computer, and I no longer have the video copying software on this version, until I figure that out again. So, if you have that ability to copy these videos before they are ‘disappeared’, and to stick them on Brighteon, please do! And then share the links here.)

THIS video is from inside one of the apartments in the Miami building.

It’s very short – 13 seconds long – but I want to bring your attention to the strong burst of light you can see on the left hand side, just BEFORE small particles of plaster start to rain down as the prelude to the collapse:

 

====

And here’s how dark it looks again a couple seconds later:

====

4. Video showing lights in windows, and strange flashes of lights on the roof and in the buildings themselves, immediately preceding collapse.

Let’s do some screenshots here, to keep things neat and tidy.

On the Arutz 7 website HERE, you see that the clip of the building coming down apparently taken from a CCTV camera begins with this very strange shot which says “No Video”.

====

Then you hear a man clearing his throat and saying: ‘Ready? Go?’ while in the background, you see the building coming down, while these two people having the conversation in the video apparently don’t hear or notice anything unusual.

All this is setting off the BS-o-meter, but what is particularly strange is why there is no footage of the half a minute directly before the building came down. What are they trying to hide?

====

Here’s how that video starts:

====

There was a power outtage for hours beforehand, which explains why there are no lights on anywhere – except in those 5-6 areas I’ve circled.

How was there light in those apartments, when there was a building-wide power outtage?

====

Now, let’s go frame-by-frame as I want you to notice there are strange, additional flashes of light just as the building starts to collapse:

====

Immediately after that second ‘light’ flashes, this central part of the condo complex comes down.

As part of a controlled demolition.

====

Now, pay attention to the light bang in the middle of the still standing right hand wing of the Surfside complex:

====

In the middle of an hours-long power-outtage; a few seconds after the central part of the condos already collapsed; this strange ‘light’ persists.

And one second later, it’s joined by another strange ‘flash’, below:

====

====

That first light I circled in red two frames back has now disappeared – and this second part of the building is now starting to collapse.

But here, we see a NEW light that just appeared, circled in yellow this time, a couple of floors down.

And then immediately afterwards, this part of the building also crumples.

====

Throughout the whole ‘demolition’ process, there are more strange flashing lights coming from the roof on the left hand side.

I’ve marked up a couple of stills to show you where to look, but slow down the video and see for yourself:

FLASH AT 5 SECONDS:

====

FLASH AT 13 SECONDS:

====

ANOTHER FLASH AT 14 SECONDS:

====

How was this building brought down?

Conventional explosives, or some sort of ‘Directed Energy’ laser?

I’m leaning towards the last option, for a few reasons, including:

  • Reports of an overpowering – and unexplained – smell of sulfur:

A bitter, sulfur-like smell hung in the air.

“The stench is very thick,” Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said.

  • The deep-burning fire under the rubble that’s hampering rescue efforts.
  • The speed these buildings came down.
  • The apparent lack of obvious explosions, or detonation noises.
  • The strange and unexplained flashes of light.

There’s a few more things, too, but we’ll get to that in another post.

====

Again, for the sceptics out there who don’t think that ‘Directed Energy’ weapons are real, take a look at this US government report (PDF) entitled:

Effects of Directed Energy Weapons

====

In terms of the motive for taking the building down, more information will undoubtedly appear soon, but my best guess now is that it is linked to former Deep-State-player-turned-rogue-agent, John McAfee.

====

And the last thing to say, for now, is that it is mind-boggling that in a first world country like the US, in a wealthy state like Florida, that four long days have passed and they still only retrieved 9 bodies.

This is totally not normal.

And it also suggests that something very unusual is going on here, both in terms of how the building was demolished, and also in terms of who or what they were going after, in the first place, which caused them to demolish Surfside.

====

I know many good Jews, and many other people have died in this terrorist attack – let’s call it what it really is.

There is no amount of damp, erosion or aging that can cause building like this to collapse like that, within ten seconds, in a total pancake movement.

All these maintenance reports from 2018 etc are a red herring.

The biggest ‘terrorist organisations’ in the whole world are our own governments, and the people who effectively control them from behind the scenes, and the media that covers up all their crimes and ‘spins’ a web of lies to confuse us all.

We owe it to all those people who died to get to the bottom of this, and to make sure the terrorists who are running our governments – all over the world – finally stop getting away with mass murder.

Whether it’s in Miami, or in Meron.

====

UPDATE:

On the BBC website HERE, they have a before / after picture. Here’s a screenshot of the ‘before’ picture:

====

Now, let’s go back to the picture of the weird ‘lights’ in the building before it collapsed – and remember, there was a power outtage, so these strange lights are probably big clues as to what caused the building to fall:

====

Here’s where I think those ‘lights’ we identified above match up, to how the building looked ‘before’ it collapsed (marked in red):

Surfside where the lights were

====

Now, I don’t know the building, so here is where I could use some help from people who do, to figure this out.

But it looks to me like the ‘lights’ we saw just before it collapsed were in some sort of elevator shaft? Is that right?

But what is beyond question is that the lights were in areas where the main central support beams of each structure are located.

Demolition experts explain all the time that you need to blow these internal supports FIRST in a controlled demolition, to make sure that the building collapses in upon itself, instead of out, where it could damage other structures.

It causes the tell-tale ‘crimp’ in the crown of the building, that is so obviously present with the Surfside building.

====

Here’s a ‘controlled demolition’ placed side-by-side with WTC 7, for comparison purposes.

Spot the difference.

(The building on the right is the ‘controlled demolition’ they admit to…)

====

So now what I’d really love to know, is were those lights in the elevator shafts of Surfside, or were they in specific apartments?

And if they were in specific apartments, who owned those particular apartments?

And once we know that, I suspect we’ll know a lot more.

====

UPDATE 2:

A new ‘story’ is coming out, that a missing resident called her husband before the collapse to tell him a sink hole had developed in the pool, in Surfside.

You can see that account HERE.

It’s amazing how this woman noticed that in the middle of an electricity black-out across the whole building, in the very middle of the night.

And it’s even more amazing that she didn’t raise the alarm at that point, if this story is true.

But what’s really interesting me are a couple of the initial comments beneath that ‘story’, where increasingly you find the real news:

Comment 1:

Ah, and here, when finding out about the incident, I was able to discern (the morning of) that Google Maps had initially tagged the wrong building. I did this by comparing the pool configuration to the other buildings in that area. It apparently didn’t sink very far.

Comment 2:

So many condos in the area are going up for sale……massed exodus !

====

Could we be seeing another hidden ‘real estate’ motive starting to swim into view here?

I mean, putting around ‘stories’ that expensive beachfront properties are suddenly collapsing in the middle of the night due to sinkholes, and running stories non-stop emphasising how ‘unsafe’ all these 40 year old structures suddenly are in that area is one sure-fire way to drive down property prices.

And when prices fall radically, some ‘lucky’ real estate developer can then step in, buy these properties for a song, and redevelop into something 4 times as expensive.

How I wish I was being sarcastic here.

But I’m not.

The only thing worse than their murderous tendencies is their greed.

====

So, let’s see how this story develops, shall we?

And let’s keep a careful eye on which property developers ‘ride to the rescue’ of all these poor people trying to sell their previously valuable beachfront condos for thrupence in order to avoid getting ‘pancaked’ in the middle of the night.

Because I’m sure we’ll learn an awful lot, if we do.

====

UPDATE 3:

A reader sent me screenshots of the ‘missing’ Collive article mentioned above. I’m bringing the relevant sections below:

====

There’s a few things I find puzzling about this.

Firstly, how was Mrs Nir checking the emails in her home office when there was a building-wide electricity black-out, as we’ve been told from other people who actually left the building because of that black-out, to spend the night in a hotel?

Second, is there a record of the building security guard calling the police, to make a complaint about the noise, as per Mrs Nir’s account.

Third, if the construction noise was so loud in the middle of the night, why were none of the other residents were making complaints about it?

Let me put it out there as a question:

Did any other residents who left the building before the collapse, or who were in the still standing section of the building, also hear this construction noise?

This is a crucial piece of information, because ‘sink holes’ do NOT make construction noise in the middle of the night.

====

And lastly, Mrs Nir says that:

“As I was standing in the lobby, I saw the parking lot of the building collapsing, like an abyss that has opened up beneath it….She once again turned to the security guard and ask [sic] to call the police, this time reporting an earthquake. “There was a very loud noise,” she told him.”

 ====

If the noise was that loud, why wasn’t the security guard hearing it himself?

(I know, maybe on his phone, like everyone else, but even so….)

There should also be a record of the security guard making a call about this sink hole / earthquake to the police, or at least a partial call. He had enough time to do that, as the account shows that Mrs Nir then went back upstairs to wake up her children and get them out of the building before it collapsed.

So, I’d really like to hear the transcripts of the security guard’s call to the police, about the massive sink hole that apparently opened up in the car park just before the building ‘collapsed’ in a controlled demolition.

I have a feeling that’s never going to happen, but let’s see.

====

In the meantime, this prompted me to take a look at ‘8777 Collins Avenue’ on Google Earth.

I wanted to see where the pool was – where the ‘mystery woman’ from the Fox News report said she saw a sink hole open up – and where the carpark was – where Mrs Nir from this Collive report says she saw a sink hole upen up.

And now, the plot thickens.

====

This is a shot of 8777 Collins avenue, from the top:

====

According to Mrs Nir’s account, she saw a sink hole opening up in the outside carpark marked above, which is adjacent to the front lobby of the building.

But here’s the thing: the carpark is next to the part of the building that DID NOT collapse.

====

I checked to see if there was any other car park that Mrs Nir could have been referring to.

The entrance to the underground parking is on the opposite side of the building from the outside carpark, and not visible from the lobby.

====

So, the only place where a carpark is visible from the lobby is that external carpark marked below:

====

Which begs the obvious question:

IF a ‘sink hole’ opened up in that external carpark shortly before the controlled demolition that took down the whole back of the building, then WHY didn’t the front of the building collapse?

It’s still standing now.

And in the meantime, strangely, the ‘strongest’ part of the building – the middle part that was the furthest away from the pool, and the furthest away from this external carpark – came down first, within 5 seconds.

====

I’m also wondering how it was possible to see a sink hole open up in the outside carpark in the middle of the night, from inside the lobby, if it was pitch black.

And I’m also wondering if any cars were swallowed up in this ‘sink hole’, as presumably you’d expect to find in the middle of a carpark.

That part of the building is still standing.

These questions should not be hard to answer.

====

If any of my readers live close to Surfside, and have 5 minutes to spare, I’d love some shots of the carpark, if that’s possible.

Because if there wasn’t a sink hole, or an earthquake – then we are certainly looking at a controlled demolition.

And if we are looking at a controlled demolition – then this is mass murder.

And if it’s mass murder, the culprits need to be identified, and brought to justice, before they kill anyone else.

At the end of the video, Ido talks about his hopes that they will be able to use these DNA nanobots in humans.

He gives a timescale of between one and five years for accomplishing this.

That talk was back in 2013.

Here’s another short video (4 minutes), that shows you specifically how these DNA origami ‘robots’ have already been built and rolled out, and how they actually work in the human body:

====

I know all this sounds so ‘sci-fi’ – but it’s real.

And I wonder if all those poskim that gave their haskamot to the Pfizer shot in Israel, and if all those rebbes who forced their followers to get vaccinated, and all those doctors who told people this gene therapy was ‘totally safe’ –

I really wonder if they had any idea what those syringes actually contained?

And what this DNA nanobot technology can really do?

And I wonder, what would have happened if they had really done their homework, and really researched what a ‘nano-lipid’ actually referred to?

Would they have changed their minds, and stopped pressuring the public to do something that clearly they should never have been asked to do, without proper informed consent?

Or where they in on this, like Netanyahu, and Moshe Bar Siman Tov, and all the rest of them, right from the start?

The report states that Rabbi Daniel Asor has also asserted unfounded conspiratorial claims surrounding the coronavirus pandemic in the past, stating that the virus and the vaccines are manufactured by a “global malicious government” made up of a combination secret societies such as the Illuminati, the Freemasons and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates in an attempt to “establish a new world order.

But as we live in a totally fake world of lies, ‘being real’ – in any measure – often quickly brings us into conflict into others, who view uncomfortable truths as ‘threats’ to be contained at any cost.

====

And of course, ‘being real’ also has its internal enemies, too.

The yetzer hara hates when we start to ‘be real’, and we start to admit at least some of our flaws, and our biases, and our bad middot.

Because, once I start to admit that I don’t always treat my husband with the care and respect I should; and that sometimes I’m downright mean to my kids, and that I’m still spending way too much time watching Taylor Swift videos on Youtube instead of reading Tikkun Haklalis….

Well.

Then something big might actually start to change in the picture.

Some real teshuva might actually start to sprout.

And that is totally NOT what the yetzer hara wants to happen, so it fights tooth and nail to keep painting a fake picture of ‘reality’ that tells us the problem is only and always everyone else.

====

That’s not what the Baal Shem Tov taught.

He taught the whole world is a mirror.

Whatever I’m accusing other people of, that’s really my own problem, just dressed up in different clothes.

I kept thinking about this over the last few days, as I’ve seen one apparently ‘religious’ MK after another get up to the podium, and blast other apparently ‘religious’ MKs for disgracing the kippa they wear.

And for uprooting the Torah.

And for damaging orthodox Jews and Judaism in a million different ways, and only caring about their own selfish interests.

====

In pop-psych parlance, this is called projection.

Once you  internalise that whatever people are calling other people out on, that’s really just their own problem – well. It makes all these self-righteous ‘speeches’ from self-righteous people way more interesting to listen to….

====

Right now, the whole world is in limbo.

There is a word in Hebrew that’s pronounced ‘ke-eel-u’.

It’s hard to really translate, but it kind of means ‘as if’.

Like, we are continuing on right now ke-eel-u this world of lies is going to just ping back to ‘normal’, and that all these cell-altering nanobot shots are really no big deal.

Like, ke-eel-u we can carry on without any connection to our True Tzaddikim, and particularly the Rav, Rabbi Eliezer Berland, and it’s still all going to be alright.

Like, ke-eel-u, we have nothing we really need to work on – urgently! – in ourselves, and and in our own bad middot, and in our own arrogance and denial about just how stuck we really are, in the world of lies.

====

One of the most remarkable ‘tricks’ of the yetzer is that it’s convinced us that all the ‘bad’ that’s happening in our own lives, and in the world around us, has nothing to do with us.

It’s broken the link between our actions, and the outcomes we see all around us.

Even huge, massive things like holocausts happening – we’re meant to just carry on pretending that ke-eel-u all those Jews in Europe were mamash perfect tzaddikim, and that we can’t understand Hashem’s ways….

But that’s baloney.

Those communities in Europe, religious and otherwise, had been totally corrupted by centuries of secret-Sabbateanism, that then morphed into secret – and not so secret – Frankist-Freemasonry.

There was a spiritual corruption pervading Eastern Europe that directly and indirectly led to the holocaust.

If we don’t accept this, if we don’t deal with this reality, we can’t learn the lessons of what happened then, and get the motivation to change what we need to change now, to avoid another one.

====

A few weeks’ back, I went to visit the old cemetery in Tiberius, where a lot of tzaddikim are buried, including Rabbi Avraham Kalisker.

That old cemetery is still mostly a wreck.

Tiberius was decimated by the earthquake of 1837, that also decimated the city of Tsfat, and it took literally decades for these communities to start to recover, a little, and for life to return.

Before I started researching all this ‘Real Jewish History’ stuff, I found it so strange that all these groups of apparently ‘frum tzaddikim’ who made aliya got met with such hard, horrible tests in Israel.

====

Mamash, they were hit with plague, persecutions and massive natural disasters like earthquakes, one after another.

It seems like God was really not happy about what was going on.

Which always puzzled me…. until I realised recently that so many of the people we consider to be ‘frum tzaddikim’, especially amongst those early pioneers who arrived in Israel, were actually secret Sabbatean-Frankists.

Underneath, they had a totally different religious agenda, albeit still dressed-up in the cloak of orthodox Judaism.

====

Once that penny dropped, I started to understand why not only the living were suffering so much, with plague, persecution and natural disasters – but also why God saw fit to desecrate the graves of so many of these dead ‘tzaddikim’, too.

Almost 200 years later, most of the old Jewish graves of Tsfat and Tiberius are still wrecked.

And the ‘Jewish State’ has been in charge here for more than seven decades….

Clearly, God is still not happy.

====

And then, I got an email a little while back from the ‘Save Vilna!’ campaign, which kind of segued into all this, too.

Long story short, the old Jewish graveyard in Vilna, known as the ‘Snipishok’ graveyard, was built on by the Soviets back in the 1950s.

Before that happened, the Jewish community was allowed to ‘move’ a handful of the more esteemed residents, including the Vilna Gaon, to the newest Jewish graveyard in Vilna, before the rest of the Snipishok site was turned into a monstrous concrete recreation centre.

There are still a lot of Jewish graves, and Jewish bones, all over that site.

====

Fast-forward to 2021, and now the old recreation centre has been bought by the Lithuanian State Bank, Turto Bankas.

They want to tear down the Soviet-era monstrosity, and redevelop the site.

Trouble is, the site is still on the old Vilna Jewish cemetery, and still contains a lot of Jewish graves and bones – around 50,000, in total.

You see the problem.

This the ‘official’ Youtube video, if you’re interested in hearing more about this (not shmirat eynayim friendly).

====

====

And if you go to HERE, you’ll find the ‘Save Vilna’ website, which is trying to mobilize the Jewish world to rescue what’s left of that old Jewish cemetery.

And HERE is where you’ll get to the petition that you can sign to ask the Lithuanian government to respect the sanctity of the site.

====

But it just got me thinking again:

How is it, that so very many of our biggest Lithuanian”tzaddikim” are buried in that particular Vilna graveyard – and yet God not only saw fit to totally desecrate it 70 years ago, He is still waging war against the people buried there today?

What’s the message, that God is undoubtedly trying to give us, with all this?

====

I know all this seems like a disparate mish-mash of ideas, but actually, there is a distinct thread running through this whole blog, namely:

The urgent imperative to BE REAL.

And to stop running away from difficult information and uncomfortable facts, and to turn around and face down our demons, both personally and globally.

====

Mashiach is at the door.

The world of lies is literally hanging on by its last fingernail, and it’s only going to take one more shove, one more ‘crisis’ to bring the whole thing crashing down.

If you want to go down with it – like Korach and his group – be my guest.

But if you really do want to continue in to the world of truth that underpins geula, in every sense of the word, then I suggest you make it a priority to BE REAL as much as possible.

Even when it’s hard.

Even when you feel you’re going to throw up.

Even when that starts to cause you all sorts of difficulties and problems, because you know have to deal with problems that you’d thought you got rid of forever, by neatly shoving them under the carpet.

====

When you experience that rising sense of panic, that things are not how they seem, that the world is not under your control, and that the only way we can get out of our really difficult circumstances is to nullify ourselves to God – and to His true tzaddikim – that’s when you’ll know you are finally making some real spiritual progress.

And that’s when you’ll know that you have a good chance of making it through to the ‘world of truth’ that is about to take over – and that no-one and nothing can stop.

Not angry ‘religious’ politicians with their fake indignation and staged walk-outs.

Not lefties, with their poisonous plans to attack the foundation of Torah.

And not the Orwellian ‘Ministry of Health’, which has turned so many people in Israel into walking nanobot genetic experiments, with the explicit backing and support of so many of our ‘saintly gadolim’.

====

God is all there is.

Ultimately, that’s the main conclusion to get to.

That’s the essence of BEING REAL.

And that’s really, what all this ‘Covid 19’ stuff; and all this ‘Frankist-Freemason’ stuff; and all this ‘terrible suffering and stuck in limbo’ stuff we are all going through right now is coming to teach us.

====

ON A DIFFERENT NOTE:

A couple of updates, first about the Rav:

Yesterday, just as the government to replace Netanyahu was sworn in, the Rav signed his ‘plea bargain’.

As far as I understand, he was given an 18 month prison sentence (!), but with the 13 months he already served in prison included.

I don’t know if he is meant to be serving the rest of the term out under house arrest, or back in prison (where they’ve already tried to kill him a few different times, including via ‘injection’ of unknown substances. Does any of this sound familiar?)

Also, they slapped the Rav with a fine of 2.5 million shekels – and bizarrely, forbade Shuvu Banim from running any formal fundraising campaign to get the money together.

====

Do you see how so much of this simply doesn’t make sense?

How it’s mamash a spiritual war being waged against the Rav, and not how it’s being painted in the lying media?

I’m going to see what they are doing, but for sure, you can still head over to the RavBerland.com website HERE, and make a donation to the Rav’s legal expenses right now, even without a formal campaign.

====

In the meantime, the fires are continuing to burn all over Israel.

And that is probably going to continue for some time to come, until more of us get real, and understand that they are 100% connected to what’s going on with the Rav.

====

The second thing I wanted to ‘update’ about was more about how this experimental nanobot technology actually works.

Since he started working for Pfizer back in 2015, most of Ido Bachelet’s work on DNA origami has gone underground, but here and there you can still find some traces of what’s really going down here.

Before we continue, unless you are already a molecular biologist, you will probably find the following short (4 minute) video REALLY helpful, when it comes to understanding what DNA origami actually is, how it works – and what ‘science’ can use it to do in living organisms, including the human body.

It’s very easy to understand and shmirat eynayim friendly:

====

Ok, back to Ido Bachelet.

One of the more recent papers I found from him, published in 2018, is called this:

Thought controlled nanoscale robots in a living host.

Here’s the snippet I want to draw your attention to, which I’ll plain English underneath:

To establish a direct control interface to DNA robots, we designed robots that can be electronically remote-controlled. This was done by adding metal nanoparticles to the robotic gates, which could heat in response to an electromagnetic field.

This concept has been demonstrated previously[13], and has been recently implemented in controlling gene expression in an animal model of diabetes[14].

In this paper we integrate all these components to allow EEG patterns associated with cognitive states to remotely trigger nanorobot activation in a living animal, and describe the design, construction, and implementation of this brain-nanomachine interface.

====

Plain English:

‘DNA robots’ are these strands of engineered DNA origami, that are designed to bind to different bits of the human genome, as simply described in the video above.

Depending on their shape, these DNA robots get genes to change in specific ways, to accomplish a specific end (aka ‘gene modification’, aka literally changing your DNA).

In order to remote-control these ‘DNA robots’ when they actually get inside the body (via injection…), Bachelet and his colleagues added a metal nanoparticle to them.

(That is one of the reasons why the site of these Covid 19 shots becomes magnetised immediately after the jab.)

Back in 2018, Bachelet and his colleagues had already used these types of remote-controlled DNA robots to change the genes in living animals, that cause diabetes.

Now, they are describing how they can use a human being’s own brainwaves to remotely trigger these DNA nanobots within their own body.

====

What are these remote-controlled DNA nanobots going to be ‘triggered’ to actually do?

What changes to a person’s DNA are they actually going to make?

We don’t know yet.

But I’d be amazed if this technology is going to be used for the good of mankind, unless some immense open miracles start to occur.

As things become clearer, I’ll continue to update.

But as more evidence swims into view about what’s really in those ‘Covid 19’ shots, it’s clear that more of us need to get real, ASAP, about what’s actually happening here.

I have a deal with my husband that I can’t be ‘the first’ to put sensitive information out there.

Mostly for spiritual reasons, he’s totally right.

Which is why I’ve been in a big bind the last few months, figuring things out that apparently no-one else knows.

That’s how it seemed, at least in English, at least browsing with Google and DuckDuckGo.

Then last week, I smashed my computer.

It wasn’t an accident.

I picked it up, and smashed it really hard, twice, on the floor, so I wouldn’t have to keep getting into arguments with my husband about the dangers – mostly spiritual – associated with all this ‘research’ I keep finding myself doing.

====

That same day, he went to get me a new one, and told me to continue researching – but not to be the first that publishes sensitive information.

I left the PC in a box for 5 days, as I really, really didn’t want to get back into all this.

But then… after a lot of praying, and a lot of soul-searching, I came to the conclusion that God really does want all this to come out, somehow, because otherwise, how do we rectify ‘the world of lies’ and turn it around into the world of truth?

So, the last few days I’ve been writing up one family tree after another again.

It’s truly exhausting work, on a number of levels, not least because there are so many ‘alter egos’ and multiple personalities going on, where one person has two, or even three, or even four names – and a different family tree associated with each – that sometimes I literally can’t speak by the end of the day.

But I have the feeling that all this needs to come out as fast as possible, and so I’m continuing.

====

Today, I finally got a massive breakthrough.

When I fired up the new computer, I decided to switch my browser to the Russian language Yandex, which seems to be censoring things less, or at least, censoring the things that I’m interested in less.

Long story short, I was trying to fill in some ‘gaps’ in a particular family tree – that I will tell you more about another time – when I literally stumbled across the real family tree for the Alter Rebbe’s ancestors.

All of the details for that family tree, all the information I’m pasting up below, come from the memoirs of one Rabbi J.J. Schneerson.

I am not the first one putting it out there, and before someone started wildly censoring and fabricating Jewish history, this was apparently public information.

So with that intro, let’s get on with.

Note: I’m playing a very straight bat in this post, just putting the info out there.

We can discuss it’s implications another time.

====

If you go to the JewAge website HERE, you’ll find this:

===

This is a screenshot for the Alter Rebbe’s family tree.

It shows clearly that his father was: Israel Boruch Loewy Pauzner (1721-1790), and that his mother’s name is Rivka Shor.

In the official Chabad write-ups for the Alter Rebbe’s family, the surname of his mother’s family is never given.

If you go HERE, you’ll find the entry for ‘Rivka, mother of the Alter Rebbe’ on the Chabadpedia website.

Here’s a snippet – in the original Hebrew first, with my translation:

הרבנית הצדקנית מרת רבקה, אמו של אדמו”ר הזקן, נולדה בויטבסק לאביה הגאון ר’ אברהם.

The Rabbanit and Tzadeket Rivka. Mother of the Alter Rebbe. Born in Vitebsk to her father, the Gaon R’ Avraham.

====

Now, you might ask what’s the big deal with the surname?

Why leave it off?

For the answer to that question, we have to return to what happened with the infamous ‘Shor’ family.

This comes from HERE – the very first post I wrote, trying to track down ‘Real Jewish History’:

====

The Shor family was one of the most well-known in Galicia, and intermarried with many of the biggest rabbinical dynasties.

Sadly, they were also hardcore secret Shabbatians, and when Jacob Frank came along, the family ‘came out’ publically.

You can read more about them HERE. Here’s a taster:

“ELISHA SCHOR, the first known of the ramified Wolowski family, was a descendant of Zalman Naphtali Schor, rabbi of *Lublin. For many years Elisha Schor held the position of Maggid in the community of *Rogatin….

The children of Elisha Schor, Solomon, Nathan, Lipman, Hayyah, and their families adhered to the Frankist sect, until their conversion to Christianity in 1759, when they changed their name to Wolowski (Pol. wol = Heb. shor). They held various positions in the court of Jacob Frank in Poland and in Offenbach.”

====

The Shor family got ‘airbrushed’ out of Jewish history now, so it’s hard tracking them all down. Suffice to say, that while some Schors openly became Frankists and then converted to Catholicism, other members of the family continued to stay within the Jewish community – and many of them continued to be ‘secret Shabbateans’.

====

So, if the Alter Rebbe’s mother was ‘Rivka Shor’, daughter of Chaim Avraham Shor, son of Naftali Hirsch Shor, son of Oyzer Shor, son of Avraham Chaim Shor….

Well.

You can see the problem.

====

====

(As a side note, the ‘Schor’ family are a renamed branch of the ancient ‘Treves’ family. But more about that another time.)

====

So now, that ‘Margela Mirele Schorr’ that I highlighted above can be found ‘in real life’.

====

Her father is listed as one R’ Jacob Shor, ABD Lutzk, Brest-Litvosk (Brisk) and Brody.

And she married Rabbi Eliezer Lippman Heilprin, the ABD of Tarnogrod (1630-1695), and had a LOT of kids.

Now, we have the right time frame for ‘Avraham Chaim Shor’ and his sister Margola, and the rest of their siblings including Ephraim Zalman “Tevias Shor” – roughly between 1630-1695. 

That’s important, because so many of the dates are being deliberately fudged and distorted, to make it easier to see how everyone is really related.

Let’s get back to that ‘Elisha Schor’, from above, who was one of Jacob Frank’s closest lieutenants, and who converted out to Catholicism, together with most of his family. Here’s a bit more about him, from the Jewish Encyclopaedia website, HERE:

====

WOLOWSKI (Schor), Christian family in Poland of Jewish origin. In 1755–56, its members joined the *Frankists, after which they converted to Catholicism. Until the 1830s the Wolowski family exclusively married apostate Frankists, but subsequently they also contracted mixed marriages.

ELISHA SCHOR, the first known of the ramified Wolowski family, was a descendant of Zalman Naphtali Schor, rabbi of *Lublin. For many years Elisha Schor held the position of Maggid in the community of *Rogatin, and was among the leaders of Shabbateanism in the southeastern sector of the Polish kingdom.

In 1755, with his sons and his son-in-law Hirsch Shabbetais, the husband of his daughter Hayyah, he joined the sect of Jacob Frank, whom he regarded as the loyal successor of Shabbateanism.

It was at Elisha’s initiative and with his participation that the disputation with the rabbis was held at *Kamenets Podolski in June 1757; he also signed the Patshegen ha-Ta’anot ve-ha-Teshuvot (“Summary of the Arguments and the Replies”). After the death of Bishop M. Dembowski, the patron of the Frankists, Elisha was compelled in the autumn of 1757 to flee across the Turkish border with his followers. He died there during a popular outbreak against the members of the sect.

The children of Elisha Schor, Solomon, Nathan, Lipman, Hayyah, and their families adhered to the Frankist sect, until their conversion to Christianity in 1759, when they changed their name to Wolowski (Pol. wol = Heb. shor). They held various positions in the court of Jacob Frank in Poland and in Offenbach.

====

HERE‘s the family tree that shows that Elisha Shor was the great-grandson of Ephraim Zalman, the ‘Tevuot Shor’:

====

(Another side note: there is confusion about whether the author of the ‘Tevuot Shor‘ is called ‘Ephraim Zalman Shor’ or ‘Alexander Sender Shor. My best guess at this point is that ‘Alexander Sender Shor’ was originally developed as an alter ego, to spare the family’s blushes over Elisha Wolowski. And that this ‘alter ego’ name has been deployed many times now, in many different generations. More on that another time.)

====

Rivka Shor – the Alter Rebbe’s mother – was the same generation as Elisha Shor (Wolowksy), notorious Sabbatean and lieutenant of Jacob Frank who scandalously converted out to Catholicism with his whole family.

====

Obviously, just belonging to these families doesn’t automatically make someone ‘bad’.

But it has to be stressed that most of the extended Shor family were known to be Sabbateans, and that they continued to adhere to the tenets of Shabtai Tzi long after he died.

That’s why they were so fast to embrace Jacob Frank, and Frankism, who presented himself as the ‘reincarnated soul’ of Shabtai Tzvi in his generation, which was part and parcel of the Sabbatean belief system.

It also has to be stressed that these ‘secret Sabbatians’ had a practise of marrying each other – something that was continue by the Frankists, later on.

Let’s continue, because mind-blowing as all this is, there’s something every MORE interesting to tell you about.

====

So, after I saw that the Alter Rebbe’s maternal family tree ties him straight into the Sabbatean-Frankist network, via his mother Rivka Shor, I went back to check out his father’s family.

And here’s where I found something that for me, is even more extraordinary.

====

The following comes from the description on that JewAge site, above, for ‘Baruch Batlan Portugali’, from the memoirs of one Rabbi J.J. Schneerson:

(AKA, the 6th Rebbe of Chabad).

A disciple and follower of R. Joel Baal-Shem of Zamosch. 

Lived in Poznań. R. Baruch-Batlan then lived with his family on the Portuguese Street in Poznań. This street got its name from the fact that it was inhabited mainly by refugees from Portugal-Jews who fled from the inquisition. The street was beautiful, and there were imposing buildings on it. The house in which R. Baruch-Batlan lived belonged to the famous rich man, goldsmith Avigdor-Tuvya and his wife Sarah-Gitl. 

In addition to the owners of the house, seven other families lived there, all well-to-do, pious and Talmudic Jews. R. Baruch-Batlan lived in this house for thirty years… R. Baruch-Batlan was the first to start looking for another apartment. A few months later, he built his own house on Synagogue Street and moved there with his family. Besides his great learning and righteousness, he was also a large and wealthy merchant.

====

I never heard of this ‘Baal Shem of Zamosc’ before, so I went to look him up.

HERE‘s who is ‘in real life, Rabbi Joel Heilprin, ABD of Ostrog and Lvov.’:

====

His brother, Eliezer Lippman Heilprin is the one married to Margola Shor, above.

Like I said, it’s a very small world.

I never heard of this particular ‘Baal Shem’ before, and something tells me I’m going to be researching this guy for a while to come.

====

But this is some of what I learned about him from Wikipedia:

Yoel Baal Shem was an Orthodox Jewish scholar of Halacha and Kabbalah who lived in Zamość during the 17th century. He became renowned as a Baal Shem (lit. '”Master of [Divine] Names”‘) for performing miracles, commanding demons and authoring Kabalistic amulets.[3][4]

Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn (1880–1950) writes in his memoirs that Yoel’s father was Yisrael Yosef, a disciple of Rabbi Mordecai Yoffe. Sometime after the latter’s passing in 1612 he moved to Zamosc. A year after his arrival to Zamosc he had a son and named him Yoel. Yoel learned for 5 years in the Yeshiva of Rabbi Joel Sirkis who was a Halachist and adherent of Kabbalah.

Yoel married before the age of 20 and started learning Kabbalah. Upon a dream, Yisrael Yosef sent his son Yoel to Prague to learn kabbalah from Rabbi Eliyahu Baal Shem. Yoel became one of the closest students of Rabbi Eliyahu Baal Shem who confided all his special teaching to him. Yoel returned to Zamosc and opened a Yeshiva there which became renowned for teaching both niglah and nistar.

Reb Yoel had a son Uri who learned in the Yeshiva of Rabbi David HaLevi Segal (author of the Turei Zahav) in Ostroh. After the latters passing, he went to learn for another six years under Rabbi Avraham Gombiner (author of Magen Avraham) in Kalisz

Rabbi Yoel Baal Shem was the teacher of Rabbi Adam Baal Shem of Ropczyce, who instructed Rabbi Israel Baal Shem Tov in Kabbalah.

====

Oo-ah!

Interesting. Not least, because there are strong grounds to believe that ‘Adam Baal Shem of Ropczyce‘ was one and the same as ‘Hershel Zoref’ of Vilna, another ‘Sabbatean’ prophet. And something tells me that the Chacham Tzvi is also in the middle of all this, one way or another.

(BTW, if you want to read the 6th Lubavitcher Rebbe’s memoirs discussing all this stuff – in English! – you can. HERE‘s where you’ll find the PDF to download. BH, I can honestly say he’s helped me more than anyone else, to piece all this stuff together.)

Let’s continue with more members of the ‘Batlan’ family.

====

Baruch (Alter Rebbe’s G-Grand-dad) has a brother called ‘David Portugali’.

Here’s what the 6th Lubavitcher Rebbe writes about him:

David lived in a village about fifteen miles from Poznań. He worked the land there with other Jews. All these farmers were Kabbalists and behaved like their ancestors, who were followers of Kabbalah, like most people from Spain and Portugal. 

The behavior of the Kabbalists of those times was that they had a tendency to asceticism, distance from society, and seclusion. However, these Kabbalistic farmers from near Poznań were not ascetics and did not seek solitude. But in real life, they behaved as if they were really moving away from society. 

They were estranged from each other and came into contact with each other only at the time when Jews should have been together – in minyan, in collective prayer. 

Although R. David was an admirer of R. Joel Baal Shema, he visited him very rarely, not like his brother R. Baruch, who regularly visited his rebbe at certain times. 

R. David and other Jewish farmers were known throughout the area. They did not need to take their bread, fruits and vegetables from their fields, orchards and vegetable gardens, or wool from their sheep to the nearest cities for sale. Customers themselves came to them in the village for goods. 

==

The settlement founded by the Kabbalists, in which each of them had his own allotment, was called Eretz Achaim (“Land of Life”). 

It was said throughout the district, as a very definite thing, that everything that grows in the fields, vegetable gardens, orchards or barns of these Kabbalists brings happiness. David was considered the eldest among the other Kabbalists of the settlement. He was considered a great scholar in both Neagle and Nistar. 

R. David was a man of spirit, but cold and calculating. Nothing ever bothered him. He was a participant in a happy or sad event that happened to someone only because the Torah prescribes it, and not because he sympathizes with it. 

The other person’s joy or grief didn’t affect him. He couldn’t laugh, any more than he could cry. Nothing moved him. He was as dry as a skull. R. David followed good rules in his behavior, as set forth in the holy books, rules that he taught common sense and did not require the manifestation of feelings. He lived according to the Torah’s instructions, but without any warmth. He was sad on the day of Tish’a beAv and happy on the day of Simchat Torah, but only because it was required and indicated. 

Moreover, he put all the lofty thoughts of Kabbalah into all this, but inwardly and outwardly he remained cold.

====

I’ve been researching all this stuff for months, and it’s the first time I’ve heard of an agricultural settlement founded by Sephardi and Portuguese ‘Kabbalist-farmers’ in the middle of Posen, Poland.

There is so very much to unpick here.

====

The last thing to share with you – for now! – 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.

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.

====

Last thing, for now.

That same ‘Binyamin Broda’ was fingered by Athol Bloomer, a real life descendent of Catholic Frankists who likes to mix up a lot of ‘Real Jewish History’ with figments of his fertile imagination, as the ‘Secret Frankist Tzaddik’ who remained within the Jewish community, to subvert it from within.

I’m not saying that definitely is true.

What I AM saying, is that there is such a big cover-up going on here, that certainly there has to be some cause for all this deliberate obfuscation of what should be simple history, simple facts.

And with God’s help, we’re getting closer and closer to figuring that out.

Back in September 2020, against all the odds, I found myself in Uman for Rosh Hashana.

***Updates Below***

My blog had been hacked within a few days of me arriving, so I ended up writing about what was going on for the RavBerland.com site, HERE.

Towards the end of my stay there, when it was a day before Rosh Hashana, and it was obvious that despite all the effort, all the contortions, to follow the ‘Coronavirus Rules’ in Uman as set out by the ISRAELI government, they weren’t going to let anyone else into Uman, a bunch of leaflets got dumped all over the floor of Pushkina Street.

====

Here’s what they said:

*Voted for Shas or Gimmel (United Torah Judaism)? You got Bibi and Gamzu, who chased after, with anti-semitism and cruelty, the Rosh Hashana of Rabbenu in Uman. Breslov chassid: remember, and don’t forget!

==

*On the way to Uman for Rosh Hashana 5781: Thousands of Breslov chassidim experienced 20 days of exile and suffering in Belarus. And the ‘chareidi’ leaders in the Knesset, Deri, Litzman and Porush stayed silent. The chareidi newspapers, HaDerech, HaMevasar, HaModia, totally and utterly ignored the anti-semitic persecution of Breslov Chassidiut. Until when?? Breslov chassid: remember, and don’t forget!

==

* Myriads of Breslov Chassidim are pointing an accusing finger against the Chareidi parties, who abandoned us, and our request to fulfill the will of Rabbenu, our teacher, his merit should protect us, amen, to come to him on Rosh Hashana. And even, [they] joined in with the wicked, cruel, anti-semitic persecution, that was without parallel, at the hands of Bibi Netanyahu and the members of his government. It won’t be forgotten, and it won’t be forgiven!

==

* Deri, Litzman and Porush! Myriads of Breslov Chassidim have a pained, broken and ripped heart, from the decrees of Netanyahu and Gamzu. How could you totally ignore what was going on? Breslov chassid: Remember, and don’t forget!

====

When I wrote about all this back in September – how the ‘chareidi’ politicians, the ‘chareidi’ papers, the ‘chareidi’ movers and shakers totally turned their backs on thousands of pilgrims to Uman – and sided with the anti-semitic, evil government which was overtly and covertly persecuting them – I got some flack for that.

“Deri got you in to Uman….” I was told.

“UTJ went to bat for you. They did everything they could,” I was told.

I didn’t believe it then.

And I certainly don’t believe it now.

====

I’m totally a-political.

I’m not a leftist, or a rightist. I don’t vote. I believe all politicians are totally corrupt, and that the political system is a sideshow, a ‘distraction’ to make you and me feel like we really have some say in what’s going on.

Really?

Every single politician is bought and paid for.

Part of the system of ‘control from the top’. Anyone who can’t or won’t be ‘controlled’ doesn’t last very long, or get very far.

Politics is a dirty business, lest we forget, and just having a beard and a rebbe doesn’t change that.

====

So, I switched on my PC for the first time in days, and I saw this article that my friend sent me, from the Times of Israel:

Forty-five people died at Meron. Why are Haredi parties blocking a probe? 

WHY are they blocking an independent State Commission?s

The possible answers to that are terribly disturbing for ‘frum Jews’ like you and me – that’s why we have to keep fighting the tendency to shove all this under the carpet, and run away from it.

We have to look this monster in the face, for the 45 people who died in Meron – and also for ourselves.

====

Then, I read all these statements by ‘frum politicians’ trying to slay any opposition to Netanyahu and ‘the right bloc’ – and honestly, I am totally sickened by them.

I sit here, I put two and two together – and I understand that all these people are really the same. They are serving the same god – i.e. themselves, and their own vested interests – except one group has a beard and a rebbe, and the other group doesn’t.

45 people were deliberately murdered in Meron, on orders that came straight from the top.

And here we have ‘frum yidden’ who are not only going all out to cover that up, they are also actively praising the person who ultimately gave those orders as ‘the savior of Israel’.

====

Let’s update the stuff from Uman, for Meron:

* Myriads of frum Jews are pointing an accusing finger against the Chareidi parties, who abandoned us, and our request to fulfill the will of Rabbenu, Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, our teacher, his merit should protect us, amen, to come to him on L’ag B’omer – in a safe and respectful manner.

And even, [they] joined in with the wicked, cruel, anti-semitic persecution, that was without parallel, at the hands of Bibi Netanyahu and the members of his government, that resulted in 45 people being murdered in a crush that was deliberately created by the police at the bottom of the ‘Reb Dov Shvil’ stairs.

It won’t be forgotten, and it won’t be forgiven!

====

I know it’s painful.

I know it’s so, so disturbing.

But the rot here goes so very deep, in every direction.

====

Yesterday night, I had a very powerful dream, where the atrocity at Meron was being ‘recreated’ – i.e. the same thing tried again, except in a different location.

I watched as all these ‘bad actors’ pretended to be this person and that person, all following their script, all playing their part in a perfectly-choreographed ‘drama’ that was again designed to kill as many frum Jews as possible.

Except this time, in my dream, someone sounded the alarm.

====

Someone went around telling all the innocent members of the public that there were demons in our midst, ‘dressed up’ to look a certain way to fool the public, but who were really just ‘bad actors’, playing their part in trying to trap, injure and kill religious Jews.

So, when those ‘bad actors’ showed up with their gates, and their blueprint for how to crush more Jews to death – we fought back.

We stood up to them.

We didn’t just ‘roll over’ and go along with what the ‘Police Actors’, and the ‘Politician Actors’, and yes, the ‘Rebbe Actors’ told us.

And  as soon as we did that, they – and the threat they really pose to Torah Jews and Judaism itself – disappeared just-like-that.

It was a good dream.

It came to teach a very important message.

====

Last week, one of my kids was a sadranit (usher) at a wedding for one of the big chassidic Rebbes, that got moved to the sports arena in Jerusalem, because it was ‘safer’ after what happened when the bleachers collapsed at the Karlin-Stolin shul in Givat Ze’ev.

She came home very disturbed by the whole experience.

She told me there were 10-11,000 people in the Arena – and every single one of them had a ‘Green Passport’ to flash, together with their entrance ticket.

My daughter has been an usher for quite a few different events the last few months, and even with ‘secular’ crowds, there is always a large contingent that doesn’t have a ‘Green Passport’.

And they are always let in, quietly, one way or another.

====

But that night, there was not a single person who wasn’t waving a ‘Green Passport’ to show they’d been cheerfully ‘vaccinated’ in her face.

She asked someone what was going on, and she was told:

The Rebbe said everyone needed to get a ‘Green Passport’ in order to come to the wedding, so we all did it.

Just like that.

Apparently with no questions asked.

====

Moshe Leon, the Mayor of Jerusalem, was guest of honor at the wedding.

And my daughter told me that all night, there were massive adverts going on all over the place for the different kupot, or health funds, that exist in Israel.

When she asked someone what was going on, she got told:

How do you think we pay for all of this?

Ah.

Big Pharma and the Ministry of Health are funding chassidic weddings in Jerusalem.

That starts to explain so much, doesn’t it?

====

The rot goes so very deep, and it can’t be labelled as a problem just for ‘secular’ people, or ‘leftists’.

Those ‘bad actors’ exist all over the place, they are on every side of ‘the argument’ – and usually, they are the ones who are leading all the machloket, and hatred of ‘the other’.

====

I have so much more to say on this subject.

But I’ve said enough for now.

We need to stop making excuses for ‘bad actors’ just because they have beards and rebbes.

When things don’t make sense – when they seem wrong, bad or dangerous – we need to find our courage and our voices, and to start speaking up and questioning what is really going on.

Pikuach nefesh – saving a soul, saving a life – is a massive mitzvah in the Torah.

There are people in the world who are mamash trying to kill us, just for wanting to live an authentic Torah life, and just for wanting to serve God and to believe in our True Tzaddikim.

And there are people with beards and rebbes who are ‘in bed’ with those evil people, and following the scripts they are being given to recite, to manipulate and control the people who believe they are really ‘frum yidden’.

But this time, when the gates go up again – when the bleachers ‘fall down’ again – we need to push back with all our might.

Remember this. And don’t forget.

====

UPDATE:

Yesterday, I went to see a good friend in Bet Shemesh I haven’t seen for ages.

We were talking about what happened at Meron, and she told me the story of her gannenet’s brother. (A gannenet is a kindergarten teacher.)

That brother had died in the crush at Meron.

People then came to his shiva, and explained how that brother had pulled them out of the crush, and saved their lives.

But then somehow, he was taken in an ambulance to hospital where he somehow – inexplicably – died.

Not only that, the hospital / Abu Kabir then refused to release his body to the family for two whole days.

My friend isn’t a news junkie like yours truly, but she found something about this whole situation with the gannenet’s brother terribly disturbing.

====

When I was discussing this with another friend, and telling her how Abu Kabir was refusing to hand over the autopsy results on the people who died to Lahav 443 – the police agency that is supposedly investigating what happened in Meron – my friend told me:

But we don’t do autopsies in Israel.

And I just looked at her incredulous.

Because, of course that’s what they were doing in Abu Kabir.

With or without the families’ consent, because don’t you know?

We live in a dictatorship, where things like ‘free choice’ and ‘human rights’ actually don’t exist, and especially not for religious Jews.

====

There are some very disturbing implications here, for how Zaka, and United Hatzolah are really operating hand-in-hand with the government, to do things that should not be done, according to Torah law.

(In case you didn’t know, Magen Dovid Adom is a government agency, just with a different name, so OF COURSE they are serving the State of Israel’s agenda. But United Hatzolah and Zaka are meant to be ‘independent’ charities. In theory.)

====

When I went back to Meron, I realised two things about United Hatzolah:

  1. There is a camera mounted on the wall of the ‘United Hatzolah’ command centre, directly at the bottom of the Reb Dov Shvil steps, were 45 people were deliberately suffocated to death behind a police barrier that the police are still claiming doesn’t exist.

That camera is pointed straight up the enclosed ‘alley’ built by the Ministry of Health especially for this year’s L’ag B’omer, and it for sure has footage of exactly how the exit was blocked, when, and by who – and the results of that action.

We know the police went through Meron disabling all the “independent” CCTV cameras in Meron the day before L’ag B’omer.

My gut is telling me that the United Hatzolah camera was still operating, and has a very important story to tell.

I want that footage to be made public.

====

2) The second thing I realised about ‘United Hatzolah’ is in plain view – and very disturbing.

And it is this:

That killer crush occurred RIGHT NEXT TO THEIR ‘COMMAND CENTRE’ IN MERON.

You see that brown / grey structure in the picture below, roofed with white sheeting?

That’s the permanent ‘United Hatzolah’ central command post in Meron.

====

The United Hatzolah ‘command centre is right at the bottom of those stairs, where 45 people died.

This makes it even more incredible to me, that a fatal crush developed over the course of 10 minutes – and it took 10 minutes before United Hatzolah ‘arrived on the scene’ to start helping people, and to put the call out about what going on.

How is this even possible?

Were the ‘United Hatzolah’ people in central command asleep, as that killer crush occurred right outside their window?

Why didn’t they get involved immediately, to force the police to remove the gates and release the suffocating pressure on the crowd?

How could ‘trained first-aiders’ not recognise what was developing, literally before their eyes, and NOT CALL FOR HELP FOR TEN MINUTES?

====

And then there are more first-hand accounts, like THIS, sent to me by one of my readers, written by a mother who had several children caught up in events at Meron, including by those stairs:

When I checked the news Sunday morning, it was like reading about a completely different event than the eyewitness reports I heard.

What those attending all said – that I didn’t see discussed at all in the English news – was that the sole exit from the Toldos Aharon hadlaka was blocked by a gate put up by the police. At the same time that more and more people were allowed in at the entrance, no one could get out, leading to a deadly crush and numerous people dying of suffocation.

====

Here’s another snippet from those eye-witness accounts:

When the announcement was made that people had died, the atmosphere at Meron changed in an instant. All music and dancing ceased immediately, replaced by tehillim, crying, screaming. Everyone was ordered to leave – at least 100,000 people.

But there was no plan, no clear evacuation directions. People were told to go in one direction and ran there, to be told they had to go in the other direction and then ran in that direction.

No cars were allowed in, no buses were allowed in. There was almost no cell coverage, people couldn’t call for help, look up directions, or contact family members whom they were separated from.

====

Whatever else the 5,000 police assigned to Meron were doing that night, ‘helping people’ and ‘maintaining safety and order’ was not on the priority list.

====

Dear readers, this is still only the tip of the iceberg.

Why are our ‘chareidi’ politicians – and the ‘religious leaders’ who are backing them – trying to quash an independent State Commission into Meron?

Why is it that a month on, the police haven’t even questioned the policemen and women who were directly involved in the incident, nor any other official?

This from HERE:

Kikar HaShabbat news site has stated that thus far the police are just conducting checks and have not yet investigated any police officer or official.

====

If all this isn’t setting off the ‘massive cover up’ alarm, then I don’t know what will.

The State of Israel – and all the ‘frum yidden’ who are working hand-in-glove with it, despite appearances to the contrary – want this story buried and forgotten about.

Because when the truth comes out, we’re all going to understand what we are really dealing with, and how much moral corruption of every stripe exists on all sides of this equation.

But the blood by those stairs in Meron is literally boiling.

And this story is not going to just ‘go away’, until real justice has been done, and those responsible for the murder in Meron are exposed, and brought to justice.

You might also like this article:

 

If you think there is no ‘Litvack’ interest in Meron, you’d be wrong.

***Updates below***

Granted, most of us believe that the Litvack / Lithuanian interest in Meron kind of starts and stops with statements like the one below, from R’ Gershon Edelstein in Bnai Brak – who appears to have some form of mild ruach hakodesh.

====

On April 28th, 2021 – two days before the mass murder in Meron – he put out the following heavily publicised statement:

Rabbi Edelstein: ‘We do not travel to Meron’

Leading Lithuanian-haredi rabbi calls on followers not to travel to Meron on Lag Ba’omer. ‘We do not travel; we sit and learn.’

====

Snippet below:

“We have learned from the Brisker Rav, from the Chazon Ish, from the Ponevezher Rav – and they did not travel [to Meron],” [R’ Edelstein] explained, listing former leaders of the Lithuanian-haredi community.

“They did not travel, and therefore we do not travel. We sit and learn: Learning Torah is equal to everything else. We do not travel: Torah learning is equal to all else.”

====

So that’s nice and clear, isn’t it.

And if that wasn’t nice and clear enough, we have other more minor luminaries in the Litvack universe echoing the same message ad nauseum. Like this, from HERE:

Yes, Lag Ba’Omer is a happy day!… But who says we are supposed to celebrate a Yohrtzeit of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai and the illumination of the Zohar that he taught with mass events that outstrip the most grandiose wedding?… Something has gone terribly wrong.

When I was in Yeshiva Rabbi Chaim Berlin under the guidance of Rav Yitzchok Hutner ZT”L (1906-1980) I do not recall any special mention or fuss being made about Lag Ba’Omer. There was no hadlaka (bonfire) tthere, there was no special singing or dancing, there was no official lecture about the day. Nothing. Just no Tachanun, perhaps a wedding or two of students.

This is admittedly the Litvish, Lithuanian yeshiva approach…

====

But of course, everyone should be holding by it.

That’s the ‘subliminal message’ I picked up from all these articles. And it’s the same message you get about daring to go to Uman for Rosh Hashana, too. Good Jews, good ‘Litvaks’ just don’t do that sort of un-Jewish, quasi-avoda-zorah stuff involving travelling to tzaddikim.

But there is a puzzle here that I can’t quite seem to figure out.

So I thought I’d try and thresh it out here on the blog, and we’ll see what turns up.

====

On Pini Dunner’s blog HERE, he set out who ‘owns’ Meron, on the religious side of the equation.

Relevant snippet below:

Ultimate control over what happens in Meron is in the hands of a shadowy group known as the Va’adat Hachamisha (“committee of five”)… 

One of the two Ashkenazi groups [who ‘own’ Meron] is headed by Rabbi Avrohom Frohlich – the former proprietor of a Judaica auction house in Jerusalem who closely associates himself with the Brisk community in Jerusalem, a group that utterly rejects the State of Israel’s legitimacy… He is closely followed in his inflexibility and refusal to consider any changes to Meron’s infrastructure by his Ashkenazi counterpart, Rabbi Mordechai Dov Hacohen Kaplan, son of Safed’s late chief rabbi, Rabbi Avraham Simcha Hacohen Kaplan.

====

Me being me, I went to look these people up.

Let’s start with R’ Mordechai Dov Hacohen Kaplan, descendant of Shabtai, aka the SHACH, whose family have ‘inherited’ the position of Chief Rabbi of Tzfat over the last six generations.

There’s lot of interesting stuff I could tell you, but let’s focus in on this pertinent snippet, for this post:

The Kaplan family are about as hardcore ‘Litvak’ as it comes.

If you go to the Hebrew Wikipedia entry for R’ Avraham Simcha Hacohen Kaplan, here’s a bit of what you learn:

He was a member of the Council of Torah Scholars of Degel HaTorah. Degel HaTorah is an: ‘ultra-orthodox Lithuanian political party in Israel’.

Not only that, R’ Kaplan senior seems to have studied with just about every big Litvak ‘luminary’ of the 20th century, including:

  • Rabbi Chaim Ozer Grodzensky
  • Rabbi Shabtai Yagel of the Slonim Yeshiva
  • Rabbi Shabtai Weigel Slonim of the Mir Yeshiva
  • Rabbi Shmuel Rozovsky of the Lomza Yeshiva (and later of the Ponevezh Yeshiva)

And while he’s at the Lomza Yeshiva, he rubbed shoulders with many other ‘Litvak’ luminaries, including:

Rabbi Yosef Rozovsky, Rabbi Reuven Yosef Gershonovich , Rabbi Eliyahu Mishkovsky , Rabbi Zalman Rotenberg , Rabbi Zvi Markowitz, Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky and more.

====

And if that wasn’t enough, he makes aliya to Israel with none other than the Brisker Rabbi himself, R’  Yitzhak Zeev Halevi Soloveitchik, descendent of R’ Chaim of Volozhin.

And if THAT wasn’t enough to prove just how ‘Litvak’ R’ Avraham Simcha Hacohen Kaplan really was, he got his smicha from another very interesting big personality in the Litvak world, called R’ Isser Zalman Meltzer of the Slutsk yeshiva.

In fact, there is so much huge, Litvak yichus going on there, on his Wikipedia page, it’s almost making my eyes water.

So now, let’s set out the difficulty I’m having.

====

How is it, that the two Ashkenazi organisations who are part of the “Va’adat Hachamisha” who control the site of Meron on the ‘frum’ side of the equation are both being run by people with very deep ties to the Litvak community?

For example, R’ Mordechai Dov Hacohen Caplan’s sister is married to Rav Mordechai Drori, the Rosh Yeshivah of Yeshivas Chemed.

Rav Drori’s brother was the late R’ Ozer Drori, who according to the YWN,

“[L]earned in Ponevezh as a bochur under his Rav, Hagaon Harav Gershon Edelstein.”

====

Hey, wait a minute.

Where have we heard that name before?

Ah yes, I remember now:

Rabbi Edelstein: ‘We do not travel to Meron’

====

R’Avraham Froehlich is proving harder to track down ‘in the real world’, but I will take Pini Dunner’s word for it, at least for now, that he’s closely associated with the Brisk Litvak faction.

So, that makes two out of the two Ashkenazi groups who ‘own’ Meron being run by people who are about as LITVACK as you can get.

So now, the questions start to multiply like mushrooms after rain.

Here’s a few, to get us started.

====

  • How did this strange situation come about, given that no Litvaks rabbis light bonfires at Meron, nor apparently hold with the custom of ‘praying to dead people’, and other things they like to describe as ‘quasi-avoda-zorah’?

  • Why have the two Litvak Ashkenazi groups who ‘own’ Meron been blocking the very necessary renovations required, for the site to be able to safely accommodate the hundreds of thousands of people who visit every year?
  • Why is it that none of us know that the same people who tell us ‘not to go to Meron’ for L’ag B’omer are closely linked to the people who ‘own’ Meron, at least on the Ashkenazi side of the equation?
  • Who gets to decide who should be leading the Ashkenazi organisations who participate in the “Va’adat Hachamisha”.
  • Who put the money down, in the first place, to create these Ashkenazi Hekdashs, and to get them recognised by the Ottoman rulers of Israel 200 years ago? (If we can get the answer to that, then we’ll really start to know a whole bunch of other things, too.)

====

Do you see the problem, here?

The Chassidim are getting blamed for the ‘awful infrastructure’ of the RASHBI tomb at Meron, by the secular authorities and the police, and also – and often much more harshly – by people who proudly claim to be religious Jews who are part of the Litvak world.

But who is really at least partly responsible for that ‘awful infrastructure’ in the first place?

The two Ashkenazi ‘hekdash’ institutions, who officially ‘own’ at least a bit of Meron – and who are being run by dyed-in-the-wool Litvaks.

There appears to be something very strange going on here, and another mystery that needs solving.

BH, with God’s help, we’ll get to it.

====

In the meantime, let’s be clear that the hardcore Litvak community in Israel has a very strong, historical link to the ‘ownership’ of Meron, and that this link has been deliberately obscured from the public, for reasons that are not yet obvious.

Now we know this information, we can start to ask why the Litvak people running the Ashkenazi institutions that ‘own’ Meron don’t stand aside, and let representatives of the communities who actually believe in things like going to Meron for L’ag B’omer, and the importance of visiting the graves of tzaddikim take over?

I mean, c’mon guys, what does Meron have to do with learning Toyrah?

And why are you running these organisations when you clearly don’t believe in the whole inyan of going to Meron for L’ag B’omer in the first place?

What else is going on here, under the surface?

I think it’s time we popped the hood, and tried to find out.

TBC

====

UPDATE:

A reader sent me links to the following:

First THIS, which explains how the feuds between the Ashkenazi and Sephardi organisations who ‘own’ Meron have basically brought us to the stage where the State of Israel is ANYWAY going to expropriate the tomb of the Rashbi at the end of three years, in 2023 if they can’t figure out how to work together, to do what needs to be done at the Kever.

The basic gist is that in 2008, there was a State Comptroller’s report into the RASHBI site, that lambasted the ‘owners’ for not renovating the site properly, and keeping it properly maintained.

==

Then at the end of 2011, the State of Israel decided it was going to ‘expropriate’ the site – which honestly, also makes me queasy, as I don’t trust a thing the State of Israel decides to do, vis-a-vis things that are holy to yiddishkeit, and to Jews, generally.

So then, a massive court battle ensued, which apparently only ended in February 2020 of last year, where the ‘Vaad HaHamisha’ – or ‘Council of Five’ in Meron – was given three years to put appropriate administrative arrangements for the site in place (whatever that actually means…).

If they didn’t manage to do that – then the State of Israel ‘reserved the right’ to expropriate ownership of the site at the end of 2023.

====

If we could trust the government here, and if we could believe that it really only has the best interests of the religious Jewish community at heart, maybe that wouldn’t be such an issue

But we can’t.

And so it is.

====

The next article my reader found is also very interesting, in English, HERE:

Here’s a longish snippet:

Between the rival [Ashkenazi and Sephardi] trusts, the battle lines are clearly drawn. According to Shalvash [of the Sephardi Trust], “All areas are our areas” and the Ashkenazic trust “has no control of” Rabbi Shimon bar Yohai. But Ben-Zion Guberstadt, board member of the Ashkenazic trust, states simply, “We say the whole thing is ours.”

Both groups claim hundreds of years’ precedent, and appeals through the past five years to courts — both religious and civil — have failed to settle the feud…

Both groups say that they are ready to build prayer houses and ritual baths to serve the million-plus pilgrims a year. The Sephardim say they would use a multimillion-dollar Safra legacy. The Ashkenazim say that even without this money, they have donors in England who will give $25 million.

[Rivka note – this is an old article, and some renovations of the Tomb itself, using money from the Safra legacy, have subsequently been carried out in Meron.]

==

The Sephardic trust, however, says that the Ashkenazim are driven less by a genuine interest in the site and more by the financial implications of control…

The Ashkenazic trust is battling for control “because they want money. That’s the name of the game,” Shalvash said in an interview with the Forward. Guberstadt flatly denied the claim…

The prevailing opinion in the Israeli government is that it should take control of the site, an inside source said.

On Meron, Rabbi Shraga Shnitzer suggests a different solution. Shnitzer, head of the independent charity Ohel Ha’Rashbi-Meron, which provides free food to visitors, believes that decisions about the site’s future should be placed in the hands of the most respected contemporary halachic authorities, the gedolei hador.

He said, “Ashkenazim and Sephardim need to sit together with gedolei hador who will come to the place and hear from everyone at Meron and decide what is allowed to do and what it is not allowed to do.”

But Schvinger says that any resolution will open up another can of worms, as there are rival splinter groups within each trust. “If it is decided that either the Sephardi or Ashkenazi hekdesh are the owners, this will open up a whole new question as to who is the true Sephardi or Ashkenazi hekdesh.”

====

The ‘Schvinger’ quoted here is Yosef Schvinger, head of the ‘National Center for the Management of Holy Places‘, and Aryeh Deri’s right hand man, who we wrote about HERE.

There’s a LOT of very dodgy things going on around the grave of the RASHBI at Meron, but at least one aspect seems to be bringing us back to the idea of ‘following the money’.

==

Right at the start of the investigation into Meron, I had some emails from someone who told me that the grave is a very big money spinner for the people who are running it.

It brings in literally millions of shekels in donations every year, and those donations are made to the various organisations and people who ‘own’ it.

Something about this just doesn’t seem right, does it?

We’ll have to tread very carefully, to try and unpick all this, because while the financial incentive is clearly looming large in the battle for control, it’s certainly not the only reason that at least some of the people involved in Meron are there, and doing what they are doing.

At least some of those people also care for the sanctity of the site, and the well-being of the pilgrims who are visiting it.

But sorting the wheat from the chaff is going to be challenging, to say the least.

And at this stage, I’d really love to know who is sitting on those ‘hekdeshim’, which ‘hekdeshim’ came first, the Sephardi or the Ashkenazi ones, who is making the decisions and really wielding the control on the ground – and how much money is flowing through the coffers of these organisations, and where it’s all going.

Once we know that, we’ll know a lot more about what ‘went wrong’ in Meron this year.

For sure, it was State-sponsored mass murder carried out by the police.

But clearly, there is also a lot of cheshbon hanefesh that’s required on the ‘frum’ side of the equation, too.

TBC

====

UPDATE 2:

Baruch Hashem, now we are having some ‘achdut’ between the Sephardim and Ashkenazim after all…

SHAS and UTJ are working together to try to help cover up what really happened in Meron on L’ag B’omer.

This comes from HERE:

Mount Meron: UTJ and Shas propose gov’t controlled committee of enquiry

Interior Minister and Shas head Arye Deri would control appointment of chairman, and at least two other committee members, while the chief rabbis would also appoint a representative.

====

In case you forgot, Deri and ‘Interior Minister’ Amir Ohana were two of the ministers, together with Yuli Edelstein, Nachman Ash, and Netanyahu, who signed off on the ‘Coronavirus rules’ for Meron this year, that directly killed 45 people, and injured hundreds more.

So of course, a ‘government controlled committee of enquiry’ where the appointments are all being controlled by the very people who need to be investigated to get to the truth, is worse than useless.

People, how much longer are we going to put up with these so-called ‘religious’ politicians, who only care about their own egos?

45 people died, the Government is poised to swoop in on Meron and ‘expropriate it’, what happened in Meron is now being used as the ‘excuse’ to stop big weddings, and visits to other holy sites, and to try to ‘control’ even more aspects of religious life – and our two ‘religious’ parties in the Knesset are totally complicit in the cover up of what really happened on L’ag B’omer.

Man, it stinks.

====

UPDATE 3:

So, I did more digging around the whole question of ‘who owns Meron’, and that brought me to a couple more interesting bits of information.

#1 – There is apparently also a massive corruption investigation currently going on in land ownership in the whole of Meron, over the last 40 years, which began in April 2019.

You can go HERE to read more of the details, if you want. (I’m choosing not to translate this, at this point, for the blogbut Google translate works well enough, if you don’t have Hebrew:)

==

#2 The Hebrew Wikipedia contains more information about who ‘owns’ Meron.

It seems that the Algerian ‘Abu’ family basically bought the site when they made aliyah in 1817.

That then somehow became the ‘Sephardi Trust’ – or at least one of them – who took over management of the site, which was registered in the Trust’s name in 1888, when Eretz Yisrael was still under Ottoman control.

In 1920, when it became mandatory to official register ownership of the land, most of the land was registered in the name of the Spanish Trust, with a small area now also registered in the name of the ‘unknown’ Ashkenazi Trust, while the rest of Meron was put in the name of the Israel Lands Administration.

Snippet from Wiki:

“In 1976 , an agreement was signed between the Spanish Trust and the Ministry of Religions, according to which the ministry will rent the complex for a period of 5 years. This period ended in 1981, when the complex returned to the management of the Spanish Trust. However, during the period a number of different organizations and bodies clung to the place, which refused to vacate their place afterwards.

Splits and divisions in various dedications, led to four various public agencies being involved in managing the complex, in addition to the Ministry of Religious Affairs and National Center for the Development of the Holy Places…

Since 1998, there has been a legal dispute over the ownership of the site, between four different endowment bodies, which are splits of the old Sephardic and Ashkenazi Trusts.

The litigation took place in both the Rabbinical Court and the District Court , with appeals being submitted to the Supreme Court . The State of Israel was also involved in the litigation on the issue, and finally in 2008 the Supreme Court decided to appoint a five-member committee (one from each body of the sanctuary, and the State Representative as chairman), to manage the compound.”

====

So the ‘Vaad Hahamisha’ is this five-member committee, that was appointed by the State of Israel’s Supreme Court in 2008.

And the ‘State Representative’ is R’ Shmuel Rabinovitch, the Rav of the Kotel and chair of the Western Wall Heritage Foundation.

You probably won’t be surprised to learn that there is a whole can of worms opening up around the Western Wall Heritage Foundation, too, but I’ll save that for another post.

R’ Rabinovitch lost a nephew in the crush at Meron.

He wrote about that – apparently in English! – HERE.

But it’s strange there is no mention of him chairing the ‘Vaad Hahamisha’ that is actually at least nominally responsible for the site’s infrastructure.

====

In the meantime, from what I can tell with the very limited information available, the Sephardim seem to be getting the short end of the stick here, as their Trust / Endowment clearly owned the site first, and clearly owns most of the site, historically.

Also check the comments, below, for more input on ‘who really owns Meron’ which at this stage I can’t verify, but it’s certainly adding another dimension into an already murky discussion.

It’s hard to see anyone associated with Meron – in any capacity – coming out of this smelling of roses.

Everywhere I turn, there seems to be decades of corruption bubbling up – even when we’re not talking about the State-sponsored mass murder of pilgrims.

Sigh.

====

UPDATE #4:

Another interesting addition to the list of ‘figuring out what really happened in Meron’ can be found HERE, on the Kikar Shabbat website.

Take away points:

“[A]nother document of the licensing officer from the northern district of the police, which was revealed to “News 12”, states that the engineer approved the buildings, the bleachers and the lighting stage in the Toldot Aharon compound, and determined that each bleacher would have 220 to 300 people. There will be 1,800 people in the gathering plaza and the total number of celebrants in the place will not exceed 3,159.

In practice, and although the Israel Police approved the decision of the licensing officer and the safety plan, about 20,000 people were present – six times the number allowed.”

====

But here is the really telling stuff:

“Also, in a document sent three days before the incident, the engineer alerted police that “due to the expected amount of crowds, all emergency exits should be kept free.” But in real time there were policemen on the ground who were not properly instructed, and even blocked one of the exits.

Moreover, at a concluding safety discussion, which took place a day before the celebration, according to one of those present, when talking about the quantities of celebrants, and the engineer expressed concern about the congestion, District Commander Superintendent Shimon Lavi replied: “Do not worry [about access] To the site, I know how to stop them if necessary. “

(Emphasis mine).

====

This is incredible.

It seems the police are saying they DID block ‘one exit’ out of Toldos Aharon the night of L’ag B’omer.

And of course, we know that THERE WAS ONLY ONE EXIT out of Toldos Aharon, the night of L’ag B’omer, as the Health Ministry ‘Coronavirus Regulations’ meant that the other three were blocked the whole time, with fences and gates.

And the police’s own safety engineer flags congestion as a real concern three days before L’ag B’omer – before most of the Ministry of Health’s additional fences and ‘checkpoints’ and the ‘tunnel of death’ had even been built – and is just waved off by the police.

Why aren’t these people being arrested, already?

====

That Kikar Shabbat article also throws some light on the specific issue we’re discussing in this post, stating there is:

“[A]n open check for tens of millions of shekels, which the Safra Foundation previously placed in favor of renovating the complex and repairing the many defects in it, but while most members of the famous ‘Va’ad HaHamisha’ in charge of the complex were happy, Avraham Froelich, who heads the “sanctuary” of the fanatics, refused – because of their principle not to enjoy “Zionist money”.

I understand the principle.

But I’d really like to know just who Avraham Froelich is representing.

Who is he working for?

Who is making these decisions, behind the scenes?

And why is all this information so very hard to come by?

====

UPDATE 5:

Yosef Schvinger and Israel Deri, of the Holy Sites Authority, were questioned by the police two days’ ago, on May 18th. See more HERE.

The director general of the Center for Holy Places in the Ministry of Religious Affairs, Yossi Schwinger and Israel Deri, in charge of the northern region, the center’s cargo, were interrogated by Lahav 433 with a warning in recent days, and released today [Tuesday, May 18, 2021.]

And in case you need more evidence that we are living in the olam hafuch, or upside-down world, the anti-Torah ‘Yesh Atid’ is bringing a bill to the Knesset on Monday to demand an independent State Commission of Inquiry into what happened in Meron.

Let’s see how the ‘religious’ parties, UTJ and SHAS, try to wiggle out of voting in favor for it, so they can keep the cover up going.

More footage that clearly shows the police barrier at ‘Area 41’ in Meron still operating 20 minutes after ‘the crush’.

***Important updates below***

Today, I was planning to leave the police barrier alone, and to look more at what else was going on around the RASHBI site, on L’ag B’omer 2021.

I’m collecting a lot of info, and BH we will keep putting it together, and putting it up on the site, so you can see what really happened that night – and who stands to gain.

But God decided otherwise, and in the course of researching those other details, I came across this article, on the YNET site:

https://www.ynet.co.il/news/article/rJTrYk5Du

====

It had a ‘blow by blow’ (fake news…) account of what was meant to have happened in Meron, together with lots of embedded video from the night of ‘the tragedy’.

And that’s when I noticed some interesting footage of the police barrier at Area 41- that mysterious metal beam I talked about HERE – that clearly showed it was still operating as a barrier at least 20 minutes after the crush.

I screen-recorded the whole video – and then a weird thing happened.

As soon as I was done, YNET seems to have scrubbed all that embedded video off their article.

Maybe it’s just me, and my PC that is now blocked from seeing it…. Go to the link, and check it out for yourselves.

====

Lucky for me, I recorded the good stuff before they did that, and below, I want to show you what I found.

(If you can’t see the whole thing embedded below, then open it in a new tab and view it that way.)

Also – please feel free to upload this to Youtube, and Brighteon, and anywhere else you can, as they are trying to scrub the evidence that the police were directly to blame for the ‘atrocity’ in Meron all the time.

I have no copyright on any of the stuff I’m putting up here, so use whatever you can wherever you can, to get the truth out.

====

Let me talk you through what you are seeing, with some screenshots.

Clip 1:

It shows just how ‘fast paced’ the terrible crush was, coming out of the only exit the police left open from the Toldos Aharon complex, at around 12:41 am – around 10 minutes after the Rebbe of Toldos Aharon lit his bonfire.

Clearly, it was totally impossible for anyone to ‘turn around and go back’ up that ramp, as people were apparently being directed to do, by the police.

====

CLIP 2:

Takes us from a side entrance straight up into ‘AREA 41’.

====

As soon as the cameraman makes the left, to turn into ‘AREA 41’ – you can see the police barrier:

====

If you watch the video, you can clearly see the metal barrier going up and down, on the pivot to the right, as it’s being continually held up by someone there.

I ask you again: If this is not a fixed, pre-planned barrier, and just some ‘random’ metal beam that appears to be there, why not just remove it totally out of the way?

This video is being shot a full 20 minutes after the deadly crush began.

And you can clearly see that the metal beam is functioning as a police ‘barrier’ – exactly like you get in carparks.

====

This next screenshot shows that the barrier was clearly at ‘Area 41’ directly next to the stairs where the fatal ‘crush’ occurred:

====

CLIP 3:

Shows AREA 41 at the time the crush happened.

The barrier is now ‘invisible’, as it’s in the lowered position which caused the crush, and surrounded by bodies.

====

CLIP 4:

Shows people escaping from the crush, from THE BACK of the stairs, via the ‘exit’ created when they ripped away some of the metal sheeting from the sides.

Notice that the barrier is now visible again.

====

UPDATE:

My friend C.A. sent me this link, which also very clearly shows where the police barrier was emplaced, and how it was functioning mamash like the barriers you see in carparks:

====

Now, let’s explain how we see some people escaping the crush from the right hand side, as you see in Clip 4.

====

Why don’t the people in front of them also then just ‘escape’, at this point?

Here’s the answer:

====

The people on the stairs themselves were ‘trapped’ behind that permanent railing, you see above.

Even with the white metal sheeting ripped off, they were still stuck behind these metal railings to the side, and blocked at the front from hundreds of people who’d fainted, collapsed and even died, in the crush created by the police at the bottom of those stairs.

====

Let’s just recap, how the police DELIBERATELY blocked the only exit out of the Toldos Aharon complex, at the busiest time of the evening:

Between 12:30 -12:41 am – as the Toldos Aharon Rebbe was lighting his bonfire – they block the RIGHT HAND exit with a standard police gate:

====

In the shot above, you can clearly see how all the blue bottles, the kippahs, the kids bimbot – all the stuff left over from the fatal crush that just took place there ALL STOPS JUST IN FRONT OF THAT POLICE GATE.

Why does all the ‘mess’ stop there?

Because that’s where the gate was, that caused the crush on the right hand side of the ‘Reb Dov Shvil’ steps, aka Area 42.

It really is that simple.

====

Then, around 12:41:41 am, on the side of the stairs at the left hand exit, ‘AREA 41’, the police lowered this barrier down, and sent in a team of at least 10 cops to ‘push back’ anyone trying to pass it:

====

====

They did that for 30 seconds, a minute – enough for the people at the front in AREA 41 to be totally crushed against the barrier and unable to move.

Meanwhile, the people careening down the oiled ramp behind them continued to increase the pressure to the point where people started to faint and asphyxiate to death, adding to the crush at the ‘blockage’ at the bottom of the stairs.

====

The police refuse to raise the barrier in Area 41, and also refuse to move the gate blocking the stairs in Area 42 for a number of minutes.

Tens of people literally died in front of their eyes at this point, yet many eyewitnesses recount that the police ‘on the scene’ were waiting for some sort of ‘permission’ from their seniors, before opening the gate in Area 42 and raising the barrier in Area 41.

If you read THIS POST, yesterday, you’ll already have a good idea what they were waiting for.

====

Now, let’s prove that this police barrier at ‘AREA 41’ was planned, and an integral part of the structure the police built there, especially for L’ag B’omer, 2021.

Literally as I was typing this post, a friend of mine sent me this screenshot:

====

Let’s take a look at the front metal beam that’s forming the ‘X’ shape you see in the structure directly in front of the stairs.

====

====

Friends, what this shows us – clearly – is that:

  1. The police built a structure specifically for L’ag B’omer that contained a ‘secret barrier’.
  2. This secret barrier was used to create the fatal crush at ‘Area 41’ that built up sometime after 12:41:41 am.
  3. The police then lied that there was a barrier there, or that they had blocked the exit.
  4. BUT THE SECRET POLICE BARRIER WAS INCLUDED IN THE CONSTRUCTION FROM THE OUTSET.

====

Now, you tell me:

Was what happened in Meron an ‘accident’, or was it pre-meditated, state-sponsored murder?

====

TBC

====

UPDATE:

The following image clearly showing a double gate barrier across the bottom of the ‘Reb Dov Shvil’ steps, apparently earlier in the day on L’ag B’omer, was uploaded to Telegram today:

====

This image, clearly showing a double gate by AREA 42 the morning after the atrocity was also uploaded to Telegram today:

====

BH, more and more information is starting to flow, that clearly shows that gates were in the area of ‘Reb Dov Shvil’ steps on L’ag B’omer, and were being used to block the flow of people.

This is something that the police and the media have been denying, and we have proved that they were lying.

Until and unless we get some more footage, or information, about where these gates actually were placed at 12:41:41 am, we’re still half-guessing here, as to how the police actually did it tachlis.

It’s all very confusing and disturbing, I appreciate that.

But each of us that tries to put our soul power into doing this birur – it’s making a huge difference spiritually, to getting to the real truth.

Even though all this can be very hard going.
