More pieces of the puzzle are starting to fall into place about the Sabeans.

I know – you have no idea who ‘the Sabeans’ are…

I wrote quite a lot about them a few weeks ago, but all our brains are so fried-out, it’s hard to retain information. So HERE is where you can read the whole article, and below I’ll excerpt some relevant snippets.

(I’m learning that if I keep repeating things 400 times, eventually some of the information sticks enough to be internalised.)

====

Snippet 1:

The Druze are known to have had some close interactions with a group of idol worshipers who maintained a lot of ancient occult knowledge from Egypt, known as the Sabians.

There is evidence that the first Templars in the Middle East – a very small, elite group of 9 wealthy knights – went to these Sabians in Harran before they did anything else, to try to learn more of their ‘occult’ ancient Egyptian knowledge, on the direct orders of Bernard of Clairveaux.

====

Snippet 2:

While I was re-reading the post The Real Roots of the Illuminati, I noticed a reference to the Sabians,who the Knights Templar went to ‘learn’ from, when they conquered the Holy Land.

(Remember, the Knights Templar morphed into the Freemasons, and the other orders of ‘xtian’ Knights in the holy land like the Hospitallers also morphed into a bunch of secret societies that aren’t called ‘freemasons’ but act in the same sort of way.)

====

I went to look up more about these Sabians, and here’s what I learned (from Wikipedia):

The Sabians were identified by early writers with the ancient Jewish Christian group the Elcesaites, and with gnostic groups such as the Hermeticists and the Manichaens.

According to Daniel Chwolson‘s exhaustive survey of Islamic and other sources (1856), they appear to have gravitated around the original pro-Jewish Hanputa of the Elcesaites, from which the prophet Mani seceded. These Hanip Sabians are later identified as the pro-Torah Sampsaeans.

====

Snippet 3:

The more I look into what’s going on here, the more I’m coming to the conclusion that the Frankists, and the Sabbateans before them, and the Spanish Alumbrados before them, are just the latest in a long line of externally ‘Judeo-Xtian’ messianic groups that are ‘anti’ the Torah, and who have actually been in existence for at least 2,000 years – if not longer.

Frank was just the latest figurehead, or ‘reincarnation’ for this group of people who have been pretending to be Jews, and pretending to be xtians for 2000 years – but really are not.

====

Snippet 4:

HERE’S THE KEY POINTS:

  • The Sabians have ancient pagan (devil-worshipping…) roots, that go all the way back to Ancient Egypt, and they consider ‘Aram’ (probably Lavan / Bilaam) as their direct ancestor.

  • Sabians are the sworn enemy of the Jews and Judaism, and they see God and religious Jews as being ‘evil’.

  • Sabians are a proto ‘Judeo-Xtian’ group, that splintered out of early xtianity 2,000 years ago – but evidently, have done a marvelous job of ‘assimilating’ in and out of the Muslim, Xtian and Jewish populations, as it suits them.

  • There is a direct connection between the Sabians and the Knights Templar, who went on to found Freemasonry, and also links to the other secret societies.

  • I have a very strong suspicion that the Sabbatean-Frankists were actually just the latest in a long line of Jew and Torah-hating Sabians, who were trying to speed up the destruction of Judaism (God forbid) by operating from within the Jewish community.

  • The Sabians are probably one and the same as the klippat de’Tarmodai. 

  • Whoever was funding Jacob Frank’s movement – the ‘Baalakebens’ – were demonically-inspired. And they very well might have been based in the Baalabek area, which is on the border between the modern State of Israel and Lebanon, which has a big Druze population.

====

Go back and read the other post, it will fill in the gaps and help you to understand how I got to these ‘takeaway points’ above.

Because now, we are going to add in some new information that came to light a couple of days ago, written by Chananya Weissman.

(I actually read Weissman’s posts on the Tomer Devorah blog, and left a comment there linking to the post I wrote about the Sabeans, quoted above, which she decided to censor. I think it’s because I support the Rav, Rav Berland. It’s chaval that so many people got duped by the media lies…. what can we do.)

====

You can read Chananya Weissman’s full post HERE, and below is the relevant snippet:

Chazal teach us that Chizkiyahu did six controversial things, three of which received the approval of the Sages and three of which did not (Pesachim 56A). The three which received approval all countered avoda zara: he dragged the bones of his father, an idolater, on a bed of rope, he pulverized the copper snake that Moshe fashioned (Bamidbar Chapter 21) which the Jews later began to worship, and he hid away the book of cures.

The latter is most intriguing. Rashi explains that people used this book of cures (which the Ramban in his introduction to Bereishis attributes to Shlomo Hamelech) to heal immediately, and they didn’t humble their hearts. Chizkiyahu hid it to compel the people to turn to Hashem.

The Rambam vehemently rejects this explanation (see his Pirush Hamishnayos). He suggests that the book of cures might have contained information about how to prepare various poisons from plants, what illnesses they would cause, and how to cure them. When Chizkiyahu saw that this scientific information was being used to murder people, he hid the book.

However, the Rambam’s preferred explanation appears in Moreh Nevuchim Part 3 Chapter 37.

There he writes that the book of cures was based on the idolatrous ideology of the Sabeans, which dated back to the times of Avraham.

This ideology was dominant at the time; it combined nature-worship, star-worship, and sexual perversity. Their cultish behaviors were not merely religion, but the accepted science of the time. Consequently, one who veered from their behaviors was considered a heretic, a science-denier, and a threat to society. The Rambam is adamant that the cures in the book were idolatrous and fraudulent.

====

Hey, looky there!

It’s those ‘Sabeans’ again – the ‘Big Pharma’ of the ancient world.

Do you think it’s a CO-IN-CID-ENCE that we fingered these same antinomian, Jew-hating Sabeans as being the spiritual moving force behind the Sabbateans, the Frankists and the Freemasons, and now we see that none other than the Rambam calls them out for also being the ‘idolatrous and fraudulent’ Big Pharma of the ancient world?

There is nothing new under the sun.

====

We are dealing with the same people, the same evil, idolatrous beliefs, the same modus operandi that our forefathers have been dealing with for at least the last 3,333 years.

How could it be otherwise?

We are on the cusp of geulah, and on the cusp of moshiach being openly revealed (clue: it’s definitely not Jonathan Pollard).

So of course, the same tests of murder, idol worship and immorality are coming around again.

====

That was the test of the times of the First Temple – that we failed badly.

And the test of the times of the Second Temple was sinat chinam – hating our fellow Jew in our hearts, instead of internalising that everything and everyone is really just a message, a manifestation of God.

And we failed that test really badly, too.

But now, thanks to the COVID scamdemic (which is being engineered by the modern-day incarnations of those ancient Sabians, the Frankist-Freemasons, who are at the highest levels of the (pretend…) Jewish world) – well.

God is giving us another chance to pass the test, before Moshiach comes.

And hopefully, we’ll do a much better job, this time around.

PS: In case you were wondering how the picture of Mount Rushmore relates to this post…

I was scanning for pictures of the ‘Ancient World’ when it came up next to pictures of Sphinxes and ‘Buddhas’ and other idolatrous idols, like this:

====

Compare and contrast:

Mount Rushmore Frankist Freemasons

America’s presidents are deep in the Frankist-Freemason network.

There is nothing new under the sun.

Maybe, just maybe, I’m finally starting to get somewhere with all this.

My husband laughs at me – insanely – when I say this.

Because I’ve been saying it for months, already, only to find all my insights disappearing in more doubts and confusion. But the last couple of posts, I’m starting to see more and more synchronicity in all this, that’s pointing a path through all the deception.

You might want to go back and read Part 1 and Part 2 of this, before we continue.

Otherwise, let’s dive in.

====

In those 2 posts, we got to the following conclusions:

====

  • Abraham Peretz‘s father is the brother, or brother-in-law of Hart Lyon / Zvi Hirsch Berliner (grandson of the Chacham Tzvi, and Chief Rabbi of Berlin and London, amongst other places.)
  • In THIS post, we set out the possibility that Zvi Hirsch Berliner could be the father or brother of the false messiah, Jacob Frank (or possibly, even Jacob Frank himself, if we’re going on the shtreimel…)
  • Chabad themselves make a weird connection between the conversion of the Alter Rebbe’s son, Moshe Shneuri, and the conversion of Abraham Peretz.
  • There is also a weird connection between Abraham Peretz and Natan Nota Notkin (Eybshutz), and the Alter Rebbe And Natan Nota Notkin (Eybshutz)
  • Both Abraham Peretz and the Alter Rebbe are also closely related to Yehoshua Zeitlin, in some way. I have a partial family tree from one of the Alter Rebbe’s descendants that show that Yehoshua Zeitlin is also meant to be their ancestor in some way; while Abraham Peretz is the ‘official’ son-in-law of Yehoshua Zeitlin.
  • The identity of Abraham Peretz’s father has been deliberately hidden.
  • The real identity of ‘Rabbi Shmuel ben Avigdor‘ – the Chief Rabbi of Vilna, at the time of the Vilna Gaon, and the son-in-law of wealthy shtadlan ‘Rabbi Yehuda ben Eliezer Safra deVayana’ – has also been deliberately hidden.

====

The question is WHY this big cover-up?

And we’re still trying to answer that.

In this post, we’ll see if we can add-in another dimension to this whole hot mess, by returning to Moses Dobrushka – putative nephew of Jacob Frank, and apparently also the grandson of Yonatan Eibshutz.

I wrote a whole big post about “Moses Dobrushka” HERE, and this is the relevant snippet we’re going to kick off with in this post:

====

[T]here were three Jews who were making money in Moravia as tobacco merchants at [the time of Jacob Frank], namely Joachim Popper, Israel Edler von Honisgberg, and Salomon Dobrushka – father of Moses, and husband of ‘Schondl’, the leading Sabbateans in Bohemia.

I could find precious little about the ‘Dobrushkas’ online, but the most useful thing I found – by far – was this account of them, on YIVO….

====

Prominent Moravian family that took its name from its patriarch, Jacob Moses Wimer (d. 1763), who came from Dobruschka, a small town near Königgrätz (Hradec Králové) in Bohemia.

In 1730 Wimer moved to Brünn (Brno) as a widower with two children, and despite the fact that Jews were forbidden to live in that city, was given permission to settle and to deal first in precious stones and jewelry, and later in spices and tobacco.

In 1750 he was granted a monopoly on the tobacco trade for the royal cities of Moravia.

Dobruschka’s daughter Esther married Adam Oppenheimer of Vienna, a relative of the court purveyor Samuel Oppenheimer. Dobruschka’s son Solomon (1715–1774) married Schöndl, daughter of Löbl Hirschl of Rzeszów and Güttel Jacobi of Prossnitz.

====

There’s that name again, ‘Lobl Hirschl’.

The brainwave I had today is that this ‘Lobl Hirshchl’ is also the same guy – ‘Hart Lyon / Zvi Hirsch Berliner’.

He was also born in Rzezsow, and was also known by that name, and in the ‘real world’, he’s the uncle of that infamous convert Abraham Peretz, who we’ve been trying to track down the last few days.

In the ‘real world’, Zvi Hirsch Berliner is married to ‘Golda’, the daughter of R’ David Tebele Katz, the ABD of Glogau.

‘Golda’ and ‘Guttel’ are also close enough matches to make me think this is an avenue worth pursuing further.

====

So, to be clear, this is the ‘theory’ we are trying to stand up in this post:

  1. That ‘Lobl Hirschl’ is in fact one and the same as Zvi Hirsch Berliner / Hart Lyon.
  2. According to YIVO, ‘Lobl Hirschl’ is listed as the father of Schondl, who was meant to have married Tobacco industrialist ‘Solomon Dobrushka’ – the leading Sabbatean Frankists in Brunn.
  3. ‘Schondl Dobrushka’ was meant to be the first cousin of Jacob Frank – which means one of their parents was a sibling.
  4. Schondl Dobrushka’s son is the infamous Moses Dobrushka, who began the Order of the Asiatic Brotherhood, and was executed in France where he played a leading role in the French Revolution, under the name Junius Frey.
  5. Zvi Hirsch Berliner is also the uncle of famous Russian convert Abraham Peretz, who is the son-in-law of Yehoshua Zeitlin.

====

So, if Lobl Hirschl = Zvi Hirsch Berliner / Hart Lyon, that means the following:

Jacob Frank and ‘Schondl Dobrushka’ are also the first cousins of Abraham Peretz.

That puts the Frankist network slap, bank, wallop right at the heart of the Jewish community in Kherson and St Petersburg.

And depending what else we can figure out about how Natan Nota Notkin (Eybshutz) and the Alter Rebbe fits in with all this – well, let’s just say things could soon get pretty interesting.

====

Before we continue, I also want to just throw this tidbit into the mix, about the Rothschilds.

Remember, the Rothschilds are German Jewish bankers who relocate to London (and Paris), and then become fabulously wealthy. They were also known Frankists, and close supporters of Jacob Frank’s court in Offenbach.

Back in THIS post, I set out this interesting fact:

‘Rabbi Tzvi Hirsh Halevi Horowitz’ – the rav who apparently ‘blessed’ the Rothschilds with wealth – appears to be our very own Rabbi Hirschel Ben Arye Löb Levin / Rabbi Hart Lyon / Rabbi Tzvi Hirsh Berlin / Hirshll Lobell.’

Do you see, how this guy seems to be in the middle of so very many of the intersecting lines of enquiry I’ve been following over the last few months? At this stage, I find it hard to believe this is just all ‘coincidence’.

====

So, now we’ve set all that out, let’s see what else we can dig up, to try to support the thesis.

Golda Berliner also has some interesting ancestors.

She apparently descends from Vogel, the daughter of the Maharal of Prague, via R’ Chaim HaCohen-Katz, the ABD of Posen and Frankfurt.

And all of a sudden, I’m in the middle of so many of the names I’ve been trying to link up with Jacob Frank, and with the Rivlin / Vilners, and with the Schicks and Poppers and ‘Dobrushkas’, for a long time already, including Slava Teomim-Frankel Mirels; and David Tebele, and Shneur Zalman Katz – the first in a long line of ‘Shneur Zalmans’.

====

Dear reader, we have just hit the genealogical jackpot.

In the next post, I’ll (try to…) set out exactly how ‘Golda Berliner’, wife of ‘Hart Lyon / Hirschll Lobel / Zvi Hirsh Berliner’ links up with Shneur Zalman, the Alter Rebbe of Chabad.

Because once we know that bit of the puzzle, I can tell you the new thesis of how the Alter Rebbe is really connected to Jacob Frank, Schondl Dobrushka and Abraham Peretz.

But before we do that, here’s some more info about Golda Berliner / Shneur Zalman of Liadi’s ancestors, that you probably didn’t know.

====

The Alter Rebbe’s great-grandfather was a man named Moshe Loew of Posen.

He was apparently a rich merchant who dealt in antiquities (when he wasn’t being the Rabbi of Posen). And also – according to his entry in the ‘Chabadpedia’ HERE – he spent a lot of time at the Vatican arguing with priests. I’m going to put both the Hebrew original here, plus the English ‘Google Translate’, as these things are delicate, and I don’t want to be accused of mis-translating anything:

====

HEBREW ORIGINAL:

ניהל ויכוחים בותיקן עם גדולי הכמרים (בתחילה מול 30 קרדינלים אך לאחר שהתעקש שיהיה כוחות שווים שמו מולו שלושה קרדינלים)ונחל נצחנות גדולים שהביכו את גדולי הנצרות. הוא עשה את זה מכיון שבאותה התקופה רבו הויכוחים והנוצרים התעללו רבות בעם היהודי ומהסיבה הזאת (ההתנכוליות של הנוצרים) ר’ משה התפטר ממשרתו כראש קהילת פוזנא,

במשך נאומיו הרבים על היהדות בותיקן הרבה יהודים שהיו שם בשלבי שמד ל”ע או כבר אחרי התחילו להתחזק ביהדות ולחזור בתשובה. הבולט שבהם היה צעיר יהודי בשם משה גדליה גורדון שהגיע מפולין על מנת להשתלם בכמה מקצועות, במשך שהותו בין הכמרים התחלש קצת ביהדותו ובזכות ר’ משה מפוזנא התחזק והתחיל לפעול עם היהודים ששהו.[4]

====

GOOGLE TRANSLATE TO ENGLISH:

“He held debates in the Vatican with the great priests (initially in front of 30 cardinals but after insisting that there be equal forces he put three cardinals in front of him) and had great victories that embarrassed the great men of Christianity.

He did this because at that time there were many arguments and the Christians abused the Jewish people a lot and for this reason (the harassment of the Christians) R. Moshe resigned from his position as head of the Pozna congregation,

During his many speeches on Judaism in the Vatican, many Jews who were there during the stages of the annihilation of Israel or after began to strengthen Judaism and repent.

Prominent among them was a young Jew named Moshe Gedaliah Gordon who came from Poland to study in several professions, during his time among the priests he weakened his Judaism a bit and thanks to Rabbi Moshe of Poznań he became stronger and began to work with the Jews who stayed. [4]”

====

Moshe Loew lived between 1663-1736.

This was the time when Sabbateanism was at its height, and many, many Jews ended up converting out to both Islam and Xtianity, in the wake of Shabtai Tzvi.

But as I set out in THIS POST, well before Shabtai Tzvi there were a ton of leading ‘Jews’, many of whom descended from Spanish and Portuguese conversos, who were washing in and out of Judaism with scandalous regularity.

They’d pop up, mamash, as priests and xtian theologists in one place, one country, then change their names and ‘rejoin’ the Jewish community again, often in leading positions as the communal rabbi and / or shtadlan and / or leading rich-guy international trader.

So it’s interesting to find Moshe Loew of Posnan – deep in the heartland of Jewish Poland – popping up in the Vatican, of all places, where he is apparently so at home, he’s able to command the Pope to only let him debate religion with 3 cardinals at a time, instead of 30.

And not only that, the Pope is happy to let him hang out in the Vatican so he can ‘re-convert’ all the apostate Jews that have shown up there, in the wake of Shabtai Tzvi.

Do you buy that, after everything we’ve been learning here together over the last few months?

Or does is sound like another Chabad story?

====

Another curiosity is the name of the person who Moshe Loew apparently ‘re-converted’ from xtianity at the Vatican, namely Moshe Gedaliah Gordon.

In THIS POST, I set out how the real name of the Eybshutz family was ‘Gordon’.

Here’s the relevant snippet:

“Rabbi Aaron Gordon, who was also the doctor to the king of Poland; Rabbi Yehuda Leib, who was the head of the Beth Din of Rabbi Yehoshua Heshel; Rabbi Yekutial Ben Rabbi Leib Gordon, who studied medicine in Padua, was influenced by Rabbi Moshe Haim Lucato (the RAMCHAL) and was among the signatories to the rules of the RAMCHAL group. Upon his return to Vilna he studied, in addition to medicine, Talmud and Kabalah.” 

====

(As a side note, there is a strong possibility that this ‘Rabbi Aaron Gordon‘ who was the Polish king’s physician was actually the brother of none other than Yonatan Eybshutz – they were both sons of Rabbi Nathan Nata Gordon, the ABD of Eibenschutz.)

====

====

You can tell me that all this is just another big CO-INC-ID-ENCE – that another Gordon-Eybshutz named ‘Moshe Gedaliah’ just happened to be hanging out at the Vatican with the Alter Rebbe’s great-grandfather Moshe Loew, at exactly the same time that Yonatan Eybshutz (Gordon…) was secretly following Shabtai Tzvi, hanging out with the Jesuits in Prague and subverting a whole generation of Jews with his yeshiva and teachings….

….and at exactly the same time that another Gordon (Eybshutz…), Dr Aharon, was apparently the physician of the King of Poland.

But at this point, I don’t really believe in coincidences any more.

====

Here’s another point of synchronicity, with stuff we’ve already covered in other posts.

The son of the above Moshe Loew is none other than the Yesod Yosef – who we mentioned back in the first post of this series, HERE, when we were trying to figure out who Rabbi Yehuda ben Eliezer Safra deVayana (YESOD) of Vilna actually was.

Here is the relevant snippet (where I’m talking about the family tree of the poor woman who is related to the Alter Rebbe of Chabad):

Rabbi Yosef Yoske Sabatka of Dubno was a scholar, moralist and cabbalist. He became rabbi of Dubno in 1698. Known for his piety, he wrote a morality book Yesod Yosef, which was first printed in Shklov in 1785.

I also learn that this ‘Yosef Yoske Sabatka’ – the YESOD YOSEF – is the “Brother of Mrs. Aleksander Sender“…

…. If your tradition is that you are definitely descended from the Alter Rebbe, then the premise that the Alter Rebbe = Alexander Sander / Sendor seems to hold up. The information above certainly tallies with what you sent me on your family tree, so far.

====

The Alter Rebbe was supposed to be the 7th generation from the Maharal of Prague.

And Tilla Sander (Sobotka) – the wife of Alexander Sender – was the 7th generation from the Maharal of Prague.
====

Back in the ‘real world’ – whatever that actually is, at this point – the ‘Yesod Yosef’ is meant to be the brother of Shneur Zalman, the grandfather of the Shneur Zalman who is the Alter Rebbe of Chabad.

But we know that there were a lot of false generations ‘added in’, to try to disguise just how all these people were actually connected to each other – and to other infamous people they didn’t want to be obviously connected to. So before we can say for sure, I’ll need to take another careful look at the dates everyone was alive, to see if they ‘fit’ properly.
====

But so far, here is where we’ve got to:

  • The Alter Rebbe’s great-grandfather was Moshe Loew (who liked to debate with priests in the Vatican and hang out with apostate relatives of Jonathan Eybshutz…).
  • The Alter Rebbe’s grandfather was Shneur Zalman, son of Moshe Loew.
  • This Shneur Zalman’s brother was none other than the ‘Yesod Yosef’, who in turn is a leading candidate for the ‘YESOD’ of Vilna whose son-in-law, Shmuel ben Avigdor, was at the heart of the horrible Vilna machloket that continued on for 3 generations around the time of the Vilna Gaon.
  • Shneur Zalman senior and the ‘Yesod Yosef’ have an unnamed sister, who is the wife of ‘Alexander Sender‘ (maybe the same ‘Alexander Sender’ as I’ve fingered as being the real name of the Vilna Gaon. Interestingly, they have a sibling listed on geni HERE who is marked as ‘Private’. Given that all these people lived more than 250 years ago, it’s hard to understand why that’s the case.)
  • Golda Berliner, wife of Hart Lyon / Hirshl Lobell / Zvi Hirsh Berliner, is directly connected to the Alter Rebbe and his family, in ways I hope to set out clearly in the next post.
  • Golda Berliner and Zvi Hirsh Berliner are meant to be the parents of the notorious Sabbatean / Frankist Schondl Dobrushka, wife of ‘Solomon Dobrushka’, mother of Moses Dobrushka / Junius Frey, and cousin of Jacob Frank.
  • Golda Berliner and Zvi Hirsh Berliner are also meant to be the aunt and uncle of Abraham Peretz, notorious convert to xtianity and son-in-law of rich maskil-cum-pretend-orthodox-rabbi, Yehoshua Zeitlin, who in turn is also connected, somehow, to the Alter Rebbe and his descendants.
  • Golda Berliner and Zvi Hirsh Berliner are also closely related to Jacob Frank – but we haven’t managed to pin down the connection yet. But with God’s help, we will.
====
That’s enough for today!
It’s a lot of information to digest.
But the net is drawing tighter.
And I really hope that in the next few posts, we’ll finally be able to definitively answer how the Alter Rebbe and the Vilna Gaon are connected; how it all links up to Jacob Frank and the Sabbateans, and how the elusive ‘Alexander Sender’ really fits into this picture.

Somehow, God keeps dragging me back to the subject of ‘real Jewish history’.

Even though I am so tired of all this, at a soul level, and so yearning for Moshiach to just show up and explain exactly what happened and why, so I don’t need to be involved with breaking my head over this anymore – that doesn’t seem to be happening.

I have deleted so many files, archived so much paper – even burnt some of it, as part of the pre-Pesach bonfire effort -and yet, here I am again, about to launch into another slice of ‘real Jewish history.

====

As seems to happen nearly all the time, the story starts back in Vilna.

I have a bunch of notes next to my computer, with random ‘interesting’ names written upon them, and today, one seemed to have come free and placed itself right on my mouse mat. The name that caught my attention was this:

R’ Jacob Peretz Klatzi, head of the Vilna Community.

Hmm.

In case you didn’t know, there was a massive machloket that engulfed the Vilna community long before any mention of the suspect ‘chassidism vs mitnagdim’ argument.

====

I wrote about that a while ago HERE, and here’s a relevant snippet:

In the years leading up to the first ‘excommunication’ of the chassidim, in 1772, The Vilna ‘kahal’, or community leaders had been locked in a vicious struggle with the town’s chief rabbi and rabbinical judge, a fellow by the name of Shmuel ben Avigdor.

Shmuel ben Avigdor had been ‘bought’ his position – as was the custom of the time then, and in many ways still is today – by his wealthy father-in-law. The kahal leaders felt that Shmuel ben Avigdor was throwing his weight around, was out of his depth when it came to making halachically-binding decisions, and – most crucially of all – was impinging on their income by trying to butt into communal affairs that they felt he should play no part in.

So, the kahal went to war against their very wealthy, very connected chief rabbi, to try to get him ousted. His father-in-law had bought him the rabbinate ‘for life’, so the kahal leaders could only get him out of the way if they could prove his was guilty of gross, ‘anti-Torah’ misconduct. So that’s what they set about trying to show.

According to Arie Morgenstern[5]:

“The methods used were illegitimate:…false testimonies, silencing of witnesses, preventing the presentation of exculpatory evidence about the defendants under threat of excommunication, forbidding the lodging of complaints with the rabbinical court by the same means, and even forbidding the rabbinical judges to listen to cries of protest against the abuse being committed.”

====

Of course, you can’t find any trace of a ‘Shmuel ben Avigdor’ in the real world.

Believe me, I’ve tried and tried.

Which is kind of strange, no? Given that this massive machloket was going on in Vilna for around 30 years, at the same time as the Vilna Gaon lived there, and shortly before the whole, seminal ‘excommunicating the chassidim’ thing apparently happened – and yet we can’t find any trace of Vilna’s chief rabbi in the real world?

No descendants, no siblings, no trace of who this guy really was?

That just trips off my ‘BS-o-meter’, and then I have the strange urge to start digging deeper.

====

If you go to the JewishGen site HERE, you’ll learn more about the official story of the Jewish history and dispute in Vilna.

Here’s some relevant snippets – see how many names you recognise from stuff I’ve already written about on the site:

The first rabbi [of Vilna] was apparently Rabbi Abraham Segal.

After him came Rabbi Menachem Munish, the son of Rabbi Itshak Hayut, author of the pamphlet ‘Zmirot Leshabat’ (Prague 1621)…. 

Rabbi Uri Shraga Feivish, who immigrated to Jerusalem and served as the rabbi of the Ashkenazi community in 1650-1653 (thereby earning the sobriquet ‘the Ashkenazi’).

The ruling Rabbi (posek) Moshe the son of Rabbi Itshak Yehuda Lima (1605-1658) author of Chelkat Mechokek…

His colleagues at the Beth Din were equally famous: the Dayan Rabbi Efraim Ben Rabbi Aaron Hacohen author of Sha’ar Efraim (from 1635 until his death in 1678). 

Rabbi Shabtai Ben Rabbi Meir Katz (‘the SHAKh’ 1628-1663), who wrote at the age of 24 the treatise Siftei Kohen about the Shulchan Aruch, and among whose other important works are Nekudot Hakesef, Tkafo Kohen, and Gvurat Anashim. Rabbi Shabtai became famous and corresponded also with Christian scholars. In 1655 he fled to Moravia and was a rabbi in Helishoi.

Rabbi Aaron Shmuel Ben Rabbi Israel Kaidanover (MHRSHAK, 1614-1676)…Rabbi Yehoshua Heshel Ben Yosef “Kharif” (“the sharp”) author of Pnei Yehoshua, a native of the city: Rabbi Heshel Tsoref (born 1633), one of the most important rabbis of his generation (his work Sefer Hatzsoref is a treatise of five volumes on the Kabalah full of Sabbatean allusions….)

====

There is so much ‘weird’ stuff going on in Vilna, it’s hard to know where to start with it all.

Here’s a few more snippets from the JewishGen site, and then we’ll focus in on the Vilna dispute, in particular, to see where that leads us.

(This is going to be a long post…. better go and get the popcorn and cup of tea and make yourself comfy.)

I’ll bold the bits that really stand out, to make it easier for you to try to follow what’s going on. Also, remember that ‘Kremers’ are meant to be ancestors of the Vilna Gaon.

From 1709 onwards, Rabbi Moshe Ben Rabbi Naftali Hirtz (died 1726) served as head of the Beth Din and preacher in Vilna.

Among the great Torah scholars in Vilna were the Dayan Rabbi Arieh Leib Ben Rabbi Yitshak Shapira (born 1701) author of Nakhalat Ariel and Ma’on Arayot and a friend of the Karaite Khakham… Rabbi Shlomo Ben Aaron of Trokai;

Rabbi Josef of Pinchuv, author of Rosh Josef and Rabbi Moshe Kremer’s in-law; the grammarians Rabbi Azriel and his sons Nisan and Eliyahu; Rabbi Zvi Hirsh from Koidanov; the Dayan Rabbi Eliyahu Kremer; Rabbi Hirsh Ben Rabbi Ezriel, author of the work Beth Lekhem Yehuda;

Rabbi Ya’akov Vilna-Ashkenazi, who emigrated to Eretz Yisrael with the group around [leading Sabbatean] Rabbi Yehuda Hasid and was one of the pillars of the community.

Rabbi Aaron Gordon, who was also the doctor to the king of Poland; Rabbi Yehuda Leib, who was the head of the Beth Din of Rabbi Yehoshua Heshel; Rabbi Yekutial Ben Rabbi Leib Gordon, who studied medicine in Padua, was influenced by Rabbi Moshe Haim Lucato (the RAMCHAL) and was among the signatories to the rules of the RAMCHAL group. Upon his return to Vilna he studied, in addition to medicine, Talmud and Kabalah. 

====

(As a side note, there is a strong possibility that this ‘Rabbi Aaron Gordon‘ who was the Polish king’s physician was actually the brother of none other than Yonatan Eybshutz – they were both sons of Rabbi Nathan Nata Gordon, the ABD of Eibenschutz.)

====

====

Let’s park that side of things for now, but pay attention to all the interactions going on with Karaites, and xtians, and Sabbatians that have been going on in Vilna for generations.

There’s also a really weird story of how a son of Count Potocki – Abraham ben Abraham – converted to Judaism, then got denounced and burnt at the stake in Vilna. This also comes from the JewishGen site:

Abraham Ben Abraham was condemned to death and on the second day of Shavuot was burnt at the stake.

Rabbi Eliezer Sitskes of Vilna, who was without a beard, disguised himself as a Christian and using a bribe managed to retrieve some of the ashes and a finger which had survived the fire, and buried them in holy ground in Vilna (without a gravestone or mention of name) where to this day the grave serves as a place of pilgrimage.

====

Abraham ben Abraham’s teacher was meant to be none other than the Vilna Gaon.

And just to make this weird story even weirder, the remains of ‘Abraham ben Abraham’ somehow ended up being buried in the Vilna Gaon’s relocated tomb in the new Jewish cemetery.

Go HERE, to read more about all this, but I’ll give you one more snippet, to underline just how strange so many of the stories coming out of Vilna, and about the Vilna Gaon, really are:

According to Jewish tradition, following Avraham ben Avraham’s death, the Vilna Gaon believed that the spiritual constitution of the world had become altered in such a way that a Jew was no longer bound to wash his hands in the morning (netilat yadayim) within four amot (cubits) of his bed, as explicitly taught in the codes of Jewish law such as the Shulchan Aruch and other halachic works.

Rather, a Jew’s entire house would be considered as four amot for this mitzvah. This custom, begun at Avraham ben Avraham’s death, commenced with the Vilna Gaon and later became the practice of the Slabodka yeshiva in Europe, becoming today the routine of many leading Israeli rabbis who follow the Slabodka tradition.[10]

====

The last bit of info related to this is that Chabad states that the person who brought Count Potocki to Judaism is one “Rabbi Menachem Mann” (not the Vilna Gaon). He is probably one and the same as R’ Menachem Manish Horowitz, aka “Mordechai Yollis”, aka the grandfather of Alexander Sender Margoliot (Shor) – my candidate for the real world name of the Vilna Gaon, as I set out HERE.

The Chabad site states that Potocki converted in Amsterdam under the aegis of the Chief Rabbi there.

Depending on when all this is meant to have actually happened, the Chief Rabbi of Amsterdam would be one of these guys (from the Jewish Virtual Library):

The son-in-law of the Chakham Zevi, Aryeh Leib ben Saul *Loewenstamm from Rzeszów, thereupon became Amsterdam’s chief rabbi (until 1755). He became the founder of the Dutch rabbinical Loewenstamm dynasty: his son Saul ben Aryeh Leib Polonus succeeded him and served until 1793, when his grandson Moses Saul Loewenstamm took over (until 1815).

====

In common with ‘Shmuel ben Avigdor’ of Vilna, Aryeh Leib ben Saul Loewenstamm was also bought his pulpits by his wealthy family, and also had a number of ‘wars’ with his unhappy community:

Through the influence of his relatives he then obtained the rabbinical position in Tarnopol in 1720 (or 1718?), the former incumbent having been ousted by the officials of the government to make room for him. This interference on the part of the civic authorities naturally aroused great opposition to him in the congregation, and Aryeh Loeb was deposed in 1724.

====

OK, let’s (try to…) get back to Jacob Peretz Klatzi, and the dispute with the Vilna rabbi, Shmuel ben Avigdor.

Back on the JewishGen website, we find this, about who Shmuel ben Avigdor was related to. I’m going to quote the whole thing, as it’s useful to have this information in one place, going forward:

====

Pride of place among the public leaders and rabbis of Vilna is reserved for Rabbi Yehuda Ben Eliezer Safra Vedayana (YSUD).

He made his fortune in trade, donated much money to the community and built a synagogue which bore his name (the Old Kloyz). In addition to being a rabbi he was also active in public matters affecting the Kahal and the ‘Council of the Lithuanian Land’…

 In the argument between Rabbi Yonatan Eivshitz and Rabbi Ya’akov Amdan, Rabbi Yehuda Safra Vedayana supported Rabbi Yonatan and convinced the Vilna scholars and the Council to take his part…

After the death of Rabbi Yehoshua Heshel in 1749, Rabbi Yehuda forced the Kahal to appoint his son in law, Rabbi Shmuel Ben Rabbi Avigdor, to the position for life, in return for a large donation.

After the death of Rabbi Yehuda (1762) a sharp dispute developed between the Kahal and Rabbi Shmuel who wanted to appoint members of his family to public positions and intended his son Rabbi Israel to succeed him in office. For some 30 years, the conflict raged on, drawing into it powerful factions from Vilna and elsewhere and threatened the community’s autonomous standing.

The Kahal – the official leadership – opposed Rabbi Shmuel and accused him of corruption and taking bribes but he was supported by the ‘mob’… and later by the Hassids [read: members of Chabad chassidut], who operated underground.

Both parties involved rabbis of other large communities and the [secular] authorities… The two sides also appealed to the crown court and the Gaon (Rabbi Eliyahu) of Vilna, who was imprisoned for a time because of his support for the Vilna Kahal.

The representative of the ‘mob’, Rabbi Shimon Ben Josef, was also imprisoned, and while sitting in the Nieszwiesz prison wrote a pamphlet in Polish about the need for reform in the authority given to the communities. The pamphlet reached the king of Poland, who published a royal order, on July 30, 1786, which forbade the Vilna Kahal to oppress and extort by the use of taxes.

It was only after the death of Rabbi Shmuel Ben Avigdor at the beginning of 1791 that the conflict came to an end.

====

Did you know that the Vilna Gaon apparently sat in a secular prison for a while?

No, neither did I. You have to wonder how so many generations of Jewish historians, both secular and religious, apparently missed such an important bit of information (and also note, that every time we see ‘the Gaon’ being mentioned, they have to fill in the name ‘Eliyahu’ in square brackets…).

I also didn’t know that ‘Shmuel Ben Avigdor’ only died in 1791 – just six years before the Vilna Gaon passed away, and the same year that Jacob Frank died.

And the last thing I didn’t know was that there was such a ‘luminary’ in Vilna called Rabbi Yehuda Ben Eliezer Safra Vedayana (YSUD) – who has also apparently been scrubbed out of official Jewish history.

====

Before we go on, let’s remind ourselves that when I tried to track down who the Vilna Gaon might be ‘in the real world’, in THIS mind-blowing post, I came to this conclusion:

Alexander Sender Margoliot is the ‘real world’ name of the Vilna Gaon.

Alexander Sender is the son of Rabbi Mordechai “Chassid”, and the grandson of that same Rabbi Menachem Manish Margaliot (mentioned above, in the Chabad story about the ger tzedek). Menachem Manish is married to Hinda Margulis – sister of the infamous Frankist and convert to Catholicism, Elisha Shor.

Long story short, ‘Alexander Sender Haim Shor / Margoliot’ (my candidate for the real name of the Vilna Gaon) changes the family name to ‘Brodsky’, and his family become leading entrepreneurs and philanthropists in Russia.

====

So, I start tootling around, trying to find any people nicknamed ‘YESOD’ that might fit the bill for this guy, Rabbi Yehuda Safra Vedayana – one of the most fabulously wealthy and powerful Jews in Vilna, and the whole of Russia, and interestingly, I get to this:

Rabbi Yosef Yoske Sabatka of Dubno was a scholar, moralist and cabbalist. He became rabbi of Dubno in 1698. Known for his piety, he wrote a morality book Yesod Yosef, which was first printed in Shklov in 1785.

I also learn that this ‘Yosef Yoske Sabatka’ – the YESOD YOSEF – is the “Brother of Mrs. Aleksander Sender“.

====

And that’s when I remember the conversation I had with a descendant of the Alter Rebbe of Chabad 5 months ago, when I was just starting to figure all this stuff out.

(Poor woman. She was very nice, and has probably been totally scandalised by the turn all this has taken.)

This is part of what I emailed her then, after she’d sent me some of the details of her family tree:

====

B’kitzur, I think the Alter Rebbe had an ‘alter ego’ called R’Alexander Sander / Sander (i.e. this is the same person).

If you look on the main ‘Loebtree’ site here: http://www.loebtree.com/maharal.html
You will see most of the Maharal of Prague’s descendants listed.
If you click on Tilla Lowe – his daughter – you will see this family tree: (I put the part where it overlaps with your family tree in BOLD).
====

====

Tilla LOEW daughter of the Maharal

Tilla LOEW married Rabbi Tzvi Hirsch SABA or SABATKA of Lublin (b. Prague), Dayan of Prague 1630, son of Joseph Yaski and/or else  she married Rabbi Zechariah Mendel I WAHL. 

Her children:

  • Rabbi Meir SABATKA (d. 1668 Prague) m. Buna the daughter of Mendel from Kolin (d. 1649 Prague).
    Rabbi Meir SABATKA remarried Surel ZOREF (d. 1664 Prague)
    • Izhak SABATKA (d. 1703 Prague) m. Haja TILS (d. 1668 Prague)
    • Leib SABATKA (d. 1673 Prague) 
    • Matatya SABATKA (d. 1680 Prague)
    • Tilla SABATKA (d. 1694 Prague) m. Josel LIBERLESH
  • Reisel SABATKA (d. 1742 Prague) m. Izhak LEVITIZ (d. 1740 Prague)
  • Rabbi Moshe SABATKA from Pozen, Rabbi in Prague.
    • Rabbi Yehuda Yudl SABATKA from Kawali.
      • daughter married Alexander SENDER son of Rabbi Jacob from Stutzek.
        • Rabbi Alexander SENDER Slutzek
          • Rabbi Yehuda Yudel
  • Rabbi Aryeh LEIB (Shpolar Zeide) of Krakow married Jute FISCHEL (b. about 1620)
==
If your tradition is that you are definitely descended from the Alter Rebbe, then the premise that the Alter Rebbe = Alexander Sander / Sendor seems to hold up. The information above certainly tallies with what you sent me on your family tree, so far.
====

The Alter Rebbe was supposed to be the 7th generation from the Maharal of Prague.

And Tilla Sander (Sobotka) – the wife of Alexander Sender – was the 7th generation from the Maharal of Prague.
====

Then, I remember the ‘new portrait’ of the Alter Rebbe that was discovered a few years back, which you can see on the Collive website (screenshotted below):

====
Here’s one of the comments from readers of the Collive website:
“I agree with the comment it looks like the GRA. I am not convinced this is the Alter Rebbe. It has some resemblance, but also very much like the Vilna Gaon.”
Quite.
====

Let’s leave that rabbit hole alone for now, and come back to the machloket in Vilna.

So, I’m looking at that post-it note with the name of Yaakov Peretz Klatzi, head of the Vilna community on it, I suddenly remember the story of one Abraham Peretz of Shklov, who was a leading tax farmer, banker, shtadlan, maskil.
====

He also happened to be the son-in-law of Joshua Zeitlin.

====

And the last thing to tell you is that Abraham Peretz ended up marrying a non-Jewish woman, and also being baptized into the Lutheran church.

It’s so, so hard to find any real information about Abraham Peretz in the English-speaking world, where it’s all been carefully scrubbed and sanitized, but thank God for Google translate.

Because I get to THIS SITE in Russian, and here’s a little more of what I learn about Abraham Peretz:

“The son of a Lubart rabbi, Peretz at the age of 16 married the daughter of a famous Talmudist and philanthropist, Rabbi Yehoshua Zeitlin (1742–1822) from Shklov, who was patronized by Prince G. Potemkin.

Peretz received a good Jewish education at his father’s house and in the yeshiva, but he strove to supplement it with knowledge of foreign languages ​​and general education subjects.

His father-in-law [i.e. Joshua Zeitlin] introduced him to Potemkin, as a result of which Peretz was able to move to St. Petersburg (early 1790s), where he began to represent the commercial and financial interests of Zeitlin.

Soon he was promoted here as a banker, ship contractor and tax farmer, and in 1801 Emperor Paul I bestowed upon him the title of Commerce Counselor.”

====

Notice how coy the internet is being about who Abraham Peretz’s dad is.

That set off the BS-o-meter again, so I went to see what I could learn about who the ‘rabbi of Lubartow’ was as that time (in Russian…). That’s when I tripped over this piece of information:

Abram Peretz was born in 1770 (or 1771) in Lubartow, Lublin province.

His father was the rabbi of this small town and first taught his son at home, and then sent him to the yeshiva (where he himself taught).    However, Abram studied not only the sacred texts assigned to the rabbi’s son, but also other books, as well as languages ​​- he spoke German and Russian perfectly.

The main teacher and spiritual mentor of the young man was not his father, but his uncle – the chief rabbi of Berlin, Hirsch Lebel (1721-1800). In his house, the young man learned a lot about the Jewish Enlightenment (Haskal), which his uncle was fascinated with.

Источник: https://historylib.org/historybooks/Alina–Rebel_Evrei-v-Rossii-samye-vliyatelnye-i-bogatye/19

====

Now I start to sit up!

Because we’ve mentioned ‘Hirsch Lebel’ a few times on this blog, not least, in this post:

====

As well as being the Chief Rabbi of Berlin, he was also the Chief Rabbi of London, too, where he was called ‘Hart Lyon’.

And ‘Hirshel Lobel’s’ father is Aryeh Leib Lowenstaam – the same guy I was talking about above, as being the ABD of Amsterdam who apparently converted the ger tzedek Abraham ben Abraham.

And Hirshel Lobel of Berlin is the uncle of the wealthy maskil, Lutheran convert and son-in-law of Joshua Zeitlin, Abraham Peretz.

Amazing, how all this is coming together.

But there’s more.

====

Now that we know this, it should be a cinch to figure out who Abraham Peretz really was, in the real world.

He’s the nephew of Tzvi Hirsh Lowenstaam (Hirshel Lobel) of Berlin and London.

That means that either one of his parents is the sibling of Tzvi Hirsh Lowenstaam, or that one of their siblings married Tzvi Hirsh Lowenstaam.

But of course, here’s where we trip headlong into more Kevin Lawrence Hanit obfuscation and distortions.

Which always tells me I’m on the right track with all this stuff.

====

Why is this stuff being so hidden?

Because if you recall from THIS post, I set out a theory that Tzvi Hirsch Lowenstaam is a strong contender for the real father of none other than Jacob Frank.

Which would make false messiah Jacob Frank and converted Lutheran maskil Abraham Peretz cousins.

And which would bring that whole Frankist connection way closer to Yehoshua Zeitlin, Peretz’s father-in-law, and in turn to the rest of the leading Jewish figures in Shklov and Vilna – on both sides of the mitnaged / chassid divide.

Remember that in previous posts, we figured out that:

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

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

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

====

So far, we still didn’t manage to track down Rabbi Yehuda Ben Eliezer Safra Vedayana of Vilna down, in the real world.

But we learned a lot of other interesting things.

And I can see that I’m finally, bezrat Hashem, closing the gap between the known and unknown enough to make that elusive breakthrough I’ve been waiting on for 6 months at least possible.

So, we’ll wait to see what the next piece of the puzzle is, that God decides to toss me.

====

You might also like these posts:

You probably haven’t heard of Vidal Benveniste (de la Cavalleria).

He’s another one of those ‘big’ names in the secret Jewish history that none of us have been taught. In this post, we’re going to see how that ‘Benveniste’ family from Spain somehow morphed into the famous Epstein and Horowitz families of Eastern Europe.

And in the process, we’ll start unpicking a chunk more of real Jewish history, to see who is the real ‘power behind the throne’ in the Jewish world – and how they are connected to the Freemasons, the diamond trade, and – who else! – Jacob Frank.

Ready?

Yalla!

====

The story begins HERE.

It’s the family tree of one ‘Slawa Brodowicz‘, who caused Keith Hanit Lawrence so much consternation when her name popped up over on geni. You can see that discussion – and how it was closed down and subverted – HERE.

But I guess Keith can’t get to every family tree on the internet (although give him some credit: the guy is really trying), so somehow, I tripped over a different family tree for Slawa, HERE, that goes back for generations.

====

====

====

 

====

It’s interesting for a lot of reasons, not least because it shows that the notorious Jacob Frank was Slawa’s great-grandfather.

And it also shows that Binyamin Broide – aka Binyamin Rivlin, the Gabia Hakesef, and leader of the Vilna Gaon’s band of 70 perushim – was Slawa’s father, married to Jacob Frank’s grand-daughter, Rachel Mayer / Margoliot.

====

I know it’s hard to keep all this stuff straight.

But if you remember from HERE, Rachel Mayer / Margoliot and Binyamin Broda are the parents of Rebbetzin Leah Goldapace:

  • The 6th Rebbe of Chabad, the Rayatz, sets out himself that ‘Leah Golda, grand-daughter of the Eshel Avraham becomes the mother of the 4th Rebbe of Chabad, and that her husband is ‘Moshe of Shklov’.

In other words:

One of Leah Golda’s great-great -granddaddy’s was the Sabbatian Prophet Avraham Broda / Rovigo.

And her great-granddaddy – from her mother’s side – was the false messiah, Jacob Frank.

Talk about yichus!

And of course, now we start to get another hint about why so much of this stuff is being deliberately and methodically covered up by people and institutions even in our times, 2021.

====

So, I’m following Jacob Frank’s family tree back, and I start to learn some very interesting things.

====

I will bullet point the highlights below, to keep things simple and stop your head from exploding:

  • Jacob Frank’s maternal grandmother is one ‘Esther Nunes HENRIQUES’, of the Henriques family.
  • Jacob Frank’s father-in-law is the ‘Bad Baal Shem‘ of London, Hayim Falkon. Hayim Falkon is descended from  the Sarfati and ‘De Crasto’ families. De Crasto is a bastardised form of ‘Da Castro‘.
  • I wrote about the ‘Da Costa’ families links to international trade, banking houses and European royalty, HERE. That article basically set out the main Portuguese-converso families engaged with the East India Company, who morphed into leading ‘Ashkenazi’ bankers, court Jews and community leaders.

====

Here’s a snippet of what I wrote back then, about this group of ‘Paradesi Jews’:

As well as Jacques de Paiva, there were some other Portuguese Converso merchant names I started looking up, too, including:

  • Antonio do Porto,
  • Pedro Pereira,
  • Fernando Mendes Henriques,
  • Bartolomeo Rodrigues,
  • Domingo do Porto,
  • Alvaro da Fonseca,
  • Samuel de Castro,
  • Salomon Franco,
  • Isaac Sardo Abendana and
  • Avraham Navarro.

Like me, you’ve probably never heard of these people before.

But they, and their descendants, have helped shaped history in the Jewish community, and the wider world, for three centuries.

====

Man, was that ever the understatement!

Jacob Frank was directly connected to most of these families, either as a direct descendant, of via his marriage with Haya Josefa Falkon.

Here’s that list again, with a star next to the families that Jacob Frank was connected to:

  • Antonio do Porto,
  • Pedro Pereira,
  • Fernando Mendes Henriques*
  • Bartolomeo Rodrigues,
  • Domingo do Porto,
  • Alvaro da Fonseca,
  • Samuel de Castro*,
  • Salomon Franco*,
  • Isaac Sardo Abendana* and
  • Avraham Navarro.

====

And that’s just the ones I actually know about.

I tried tracking back ‘Jacob Franco’ to ‘Salomon Franco’, but quickly hit a dead end. Maybe, this had something to do with that (from Wikipedia):

Solomon Franco was a Jewish convert to Anglicanism who combined his interest in Cabalism with support for the English monarchy.

In 1649, Solomon Franco moved from New Amsterdam (later New York City) to become the first Jew recorded as living in the Boston area. However he was soon paid off by Puritans of the General Court, provided he set sail for Holland within a few weeks.

Although a Rabbi, in 1668 he converted to Anglicanism, publishing Truth springing out of the earth in the same year. A second edition was published in 1670.

====

If you want, you can download Franco’s book HERE.

Here’s a snippet:

“Franco, Solomon. Truth springing out of the earth : that is, the truth of Christ proved out of the earthly promises of the Law. Wherein is made manifest, that the coming of the Messias cannot be for temporall things, according to the expectation of all the Jews. Proved out of their own principles. By R. Solomon Franco, a true convert to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.”

====

It sounds like “Jacob Franco”, who converted 100 years later, was probably just a chip off his family’s block.

And it’s very possible there was more than one of them.

====

====

When I was writing about the ‘other Jacob Franks‘, HERE, and also HERE, this is what I learned:

Jacob Franks was the British king’s sole agent for the Northern Colonies at New York and his son David was the king’s agent for Pennsylvania. An eminent and wealthy merchant, he engaged in the slave trade, privateering, general commerce, and shipping.

==

[I]f you go HERE, you’ll see that 50 years’ years later, one ‘Charles Franks’ is still the subgovernor of the South Sea Company for Queen Victoria, so clearly the Franks family continued to be in favor with the British monarchy even after the [American] War of Independence.

====

I’m willing to bet the farm that “Rabbi Salomon Franks”, who converted to Anglicism in 1668, two years after Shabtai Tzvi became a Muslim, is very closely related to all these Franks.

Again, notice how slave trading, the hugely lucrative trade in diamonds, spices, lumber and other stuff from the ‘New World’ is all tied up with thse Portuguese Conversos / Paradesi Jews, who keep popping in and out of Judaism and xtianity, false messiahs, the British crown (via its German connections) – and America.

Maybe ‘Rabbi Jacob Franks’ and ‘Jacob Franco’ are even the same guy, who really knows, at this point.

Let’s continue.

====

The next line of enquiry I try is Jacob Franco’s grandma, Esther Nunes Henriques.

And here is where I start to make some real headway.

You can go HERE, to see the full Wiki write up on the Henriques family.

Here’s some relevant snippets:

The Henriques family descend from the Jews of Spain, who fled from religious persecution to Portugal in 1492. Although led to believe they would be permitted to practice Judaism freely in Portugal, they were forcibly converted to Catholicism upon their arrival. These “Marranos”, or “New Christians”… married each other. Their descendants became assimilated, participating in and contributing to the economic life of Portugal and its empire. Some were elevated to the peerage for their patriotism.

(I’m not so sure they were ‘forcibly converted’ to Catholicism, given what so many of their descendants have been up to. But let’s continue.)

====

Apparently, the Henriques family had / has British, Indian, German and Danish branches.

The Israel Henriques family included several prominent Sephardic Jewish benefactors of Portuguese descent during the 17th century in Great Britain….

==

The Henriques De Castro family included several prominent Sephardic Jewish Business men of Portuguese descent, they were called Paradesi Jewsof Madras.

They traded in diamonds, precious stones and corals, they had very good relations with the rulers of Golkonda, they maintained trade connections to Europe, and their language skills were useful….

==

The progenitor of the Danish branch of the family was Moses Henriques (Cornelis Janssen was his business name), a burgess in Glückstadt in northern Germany, who was the paternal grandfather of the mathematician, Moses Joshua Henriques (1635–1716).

==

Merchant Bendix (Pinchas) Moses Henriques (1725–1807), one of Moses Aaron Nathan Henriques sons, became a Danish citizen in 1752 and moved to Copenhagen…. The Warburg family is descended from another daughter of Bendix (Pinchas) Moses Henriques.

==

You can read more about the infamous Warburgs HERE.

Not unusually, while Paul Warburg was busy arranging the ‘Federal Reserve’ system in the US for his masters, cousin Otto Warburg was off being a president of the World Zionist Organisation.

As I keep mentioning, these people have nearly every important position stitched up, between them.

====

Closer to home, the Melchior (of R’ Michael Melchior fame) family are also direct descendants of the Henriques’ Danish branch, via banker (and Dutch West Indies company financier) Ruben Henriques, and his daughter Dorothea Melchior.

The Melchiors are also descended from the Warburgs.

You see? They keep all these positions of power influence ‘in the family’, while the rest of us keep scratching our heads wondering how all these apparently ‘different’ people ending up working for the same yucky cause?

====

You could literally write a book on each of these families, and how they’ve been shaping Jewish history for centuries, but let’s move on.

Remember, ‘Jacob Franco’, whoever else he turns out to be, was the son of Esther Nunes Henriques, and so directly connected in to the heart of power in the Jewish world – which happened to be Sabbatian.

Here’s a bit more about the London branch of the Henriques, from encylopaedia.com:

HENRIQUES (Quixano Henriques ), Anglo-Jewish family. The family progenitor was Moses Henriques of Kingston, Jamaica, who married Abigail Quixano in 1768. The eldest son of this marriage, Abraham Quixano Henriques (18/19th cent.), immigrated to London, where he established himself as a West India merchant.

His sons David (1804–1870) and Jacob (1811–1898) were prominent communal workers and were among the founders of the Reform congregation in London in 1840.

====

Notice that ‘Reform’ tendency.

Wherever you scratch the surface, you find the same people, the same family networks.

The Falkons – Frank’s inlaws – were also connected into this network of powerful Portuguese conversos, and descended from the Mendes and de Costa and de Crasto (Castro) families.

====

I just want to end this, by going back a bit further in history, so you can see that these families have been ruling the Jewish community forever, way before Shabtai Tzvi and Jacob Frank showed up.

If you keep going back in Jacob Franco’s family tree, you eventually hit the Nunes / Mendes / de Luna families, who are all just different branches of the Benveniste family tree.

You can read all about the Benveniste family on Wikipedia HERE, but below, I’m going to pull out some pertinent points.

====

  1. Jacob Frank is directly related to Dona Gracia and her nephew, the Nasi Joseph.

Not coincidentally, these were the only people to try to ‘settle’ the Holy Land, before the Sabbatians picked up that thread again in the 17th century. This from Wikipedia:

Gracia Mendes Nasi – Benveniste – Beatriz de Luna – (1510–1569) (Dona Gracia) a Marrano-Jewish-Portuguese businesswoman. She was the daughter of Philipa Mendes|Benveniste and Alvaro de Luna. She was married to her uncle Francisco Mendes (Tzemah Benveniste), inherited the Mendes|Benveniste fortune and due to her exceptional business acumen, became one of the wealthiest women in Europe of the middle 16th century.[18]

She returned to Judaism in Ferrara in the 1552 together with members of the He(E)nriques|Nunes(nuñez)|Benveniste family (Meir, Abraham and Reina Benveniste).

In 1553/4 she left Ferrara together with her daughter Ana (Reyna), (soon to be) son in law Don Joseph Nasi and the Henriques|Nunes|Benveniste family to Salonika and Istanbul where they settled at the invitation of SultanSuleiman I.

They were very active in trade, finance and in local and international Jewish life.

====

If you go back a few more centuries, you get to Vidal Benveniste de Cavalleria, which is where we started.

Vidal Benveniste (de la Cavalleria) was a prominent Spanish Jewish scholar who lived in Saragossa (the capital of Aragon) in the beginning of the second half of the 14th century and the beginning of the 15th century.

The honor ‘Benveniste de la Cavalleria’, according to the Encyclopaedia Judaica, was given to the family by the Knights Templar who protected the family and the family in turn administered the tax system of the Templars.

His family was connected to the development of the town of Saragossa in the 14th century, and members of the family Benveniste de la Cavalleria were financiers of the local kings. He was elected, by the notables of the Jewish communities of Aragon, as the speaker before the pope at the beginning of disputation of Tortosa (1412).

====

The links between the ‘Benveniste’ family and the Knights Templars go back at least 600 years.

In case you forgot, the Knights Templars are one of the groups who morphed into modern-day (devil-worshipping…) Freemasonry.

There’s a lot more to say here – as always! – but I don’t want to overload you with too much information in one post.

====

What you should take away from this, at least, is the notion that whoever ‘Jacob Franco’ ends up being, he was coming from a long, long line of super-powerful crypto Jews who controlled international trade, rubbed shoulders with royalty, and flipped in and out of Judaism as the whim took them.

The same families, the same people, have been in positions of power for centuries.

Outsiders can’t really get a look in.

====

That’s how a ‘Rabbi from Denmark’ can end up playing such a big part in Israeli politics and the so-called ‘peace process’. Like THIS, from Michael Melchior’s website, talking about ‘interreligious peace’.

That’s how people with big beards and impeccable yichus can be working hand-in-hand with extreme secular lefties with a radical ‘anti-Torah agenda.

That’s how we end up with the same policies, the same evil, the same push towards ‘one religion’ and ‘no Torah’, whoever we go and vote for.

Because whoever has a chance to wield real power here, or elsewhere in the Jewish community, is part of this same group, this same clique.

====

That doesn’t mean every single person who belongs to these families are ‘bad’.

Each person has to be judged on their own merits, their own actions.

But it does mean we have to stop being so naive as to believe that the people in power in the Jewish community are there on their own merits, or somehow trying to help us, as opposed to themselves.

They aren’t.

They never were.

And our starting point should be to assume that our leaders are part of the problem, part of the corrupt elite that hijacked the Jewish community hundreds of years ago, and to stop giving them the benefit of the doubt until we are totally sure they deserve it.

====

UPDATE:

There’s one more ‘Benveniste’ connection that I just wanted to add here.

It’s a tax-farming Court Jew from the 13th Century called Benveniste de Porta.

He’s interesting for a few reasons, and you can read more about him on Wiki HERE.

Another ‘thread’ that I keep noticing with these families – in all their different incarnations – is that they tend to be the tax farmers for the secular / non-Jewish authorities.

In brief, they would ‘buy’ the privilege to charge taxes on the Jewish communities, and then pay out a certain sum to the ruler for that honor.

Whatever taxes they could then gauge out of the community that was in excess of what they’d paid to the ruler, they got to pocket themselves.

And many of them got very wealthy from doing this.
====

Benveniste de Porta is also interesting because he is the brother of Nachmanides – the Ramban.

Again, we see how the tax collecting court Jews and some of the biggest genuine Tzaddikim come from the exact same gene pool.

And I have a feeling, there’s an even more notable example of that even closer to our own times.

I have to tell you: I’m a little running out of mental energy at the moment.

I’ve been deep in the hole of ‘real Jewish history’ for six months already, and it’s exhausting, trying to track all this stuff down all the time.

At the same time, my tabs have been proliferating like mushrooms after rain, so I’ve been finding myself caught on the horns of a furious dilemma: keep writing and sharing, even though I’m pretty tired and probably need to take a break for a good week – and get my tabs closed down.

Or take a break – and keep all my tabs open, so I don’t lose the thread, the information.

Yesterday, God decided to help me out by making my internet crash.

I took that as a sign that I need to kind of ‘cut loose’ from trying to do this in any sort of pre-arranged order, and to just go with whatever God puts in front of me, on a given day.

So, dear readers, it might not be as ‘organised’ as usual, but I can’t keep that pitch of ‘organised posting’ going at the moment.

And the info still needs to get out somehow, so I’ve decided to put the tabs, the info, in front of you, with less explanation than perhaps you’re used to, and feel free to start your own journey of discovery, if you are so minded.

====

Today, God put in front of me Moses Mendelssohn’s bank.

You probably remember that Moses Mendelssohn is often ‘credited’, if you can call it that, with being the founder of the Reform movement within Judaism.

But if you re-read his role within the context of ‘Real Jewish History’, it’s obvious that he was part of the Sabbatian-Frankist network that overwhelmed so much of the orthodox Jewish world – from the top down.

Mendelssohn was given smicha by none other than the secret Sabbatian Yonatan Eybshutz – Rabbi Marvin Antelman tracked down the original smicha document in the Schiff collection in NY, as covered HERE.

====

====

What far fewer people know is that Moses Mendelssohn’s sons also started their own bank, as so very many of these Frankists did.

It was called the Mendelssohn Bank, and you can read all about it at Wikipedia, HERE.

Here’s a snippet:

Mendelssohn quickly rose to prominence among European banks. Starting in the 1850s, they acted as Royal bankers for the Russian Tsar, and from the 1870s dominating the Central European financial market for Russian sovereign bonds and railway bonds.

Only the outbreak of World War I in 1914 and the Lenin putsch in 1917 put an end to these close contacts. The Mendelssohn family through the descendants of the founding brothers continued to run the company.

Mendelssohn & Co. survived the financial meltdown of the 1930s comparatively well. Following the death of Franz von Mendelssohn and Paul von Mendelssohn-Bartholdy [de] in 1935, Rudolf Löb was appointed as chairman of the bank, the first non-family member to be chairman.

In 1938, under intense pressure of the Nazis‘ Aryanization policy, Mendelssohn & Co. were forced to hand over their assets to Deutsche Bank, and eventually to shut down.

====

So, let’s keep it all straight:

Mendelssohn’s bank became part of Deutsche Bank.

Deutsche Bank  has a reputation for being the financial enabler, par excellence, of so much of what is going wrong in our world (even predating World War II).

Like this:

Go and read it, for a great overview of Deutsche Bank’s money laundering, dirty money ops, and links to criminals and evil psychos all over the world.

Like, for example, this guy:

Deutsche Bank faces $150m fine for Jeffrey Epstein ties

====

Now, Deutsche Bank itself has an interesting history.

If you didn’t know about the Disconto Gesellschaff, that subsequently morphed into the Deutsche Bank, you might think that the Frankists had no hand in the Deutsche Bank operations post WWII.

But you’d be wrong.

This article on Wiki explains a lot about Disconto Gesellschaff’s history, but for the purposes of this post, I just want to point out that many of the banks that were absorbed into the modern Deutsche Bank were owned by ‘Jews’ (or more probably, ‘Frankists’) – those banks are starred, below:

The Disconto-Gesellschaft took over

====

I can’t find information for all of the banks above, but 7 1/2 of the 16 banks, above, have direct links to (fake) Jews who were almost certainly Frankists.

And so many of these Frankist banks got pulled together into what became the modern Deutsche Bank.

====

Let’s just get back to the Mendelssohn Bank, for a minute, because I want to continue to show you how so many of the people who were located in pivotal positions at key points in the last 200 years of history were Frankists.

Apart from the Mendelssohn family itself, ‘notable employees’ of the Mendelssohn bank include:

Click on the links to read more about who these people were, and what they were up to.

====

The externally Jewish members of the Mendelssohn bank decided to transfer their shares in the bank to the ‘silent partner’, called Marie von Mendelssohn, who the Nazi administration officially classified as ‘Aryan’, before WW2.

There’s much more to say about Deutsche Bank, but that will have to wait for another post, as I want to take a closer look at the Mendelssohn family, now.

====

In common with so many other Frankist families, most of Moses Mendelssohn’s children raced to drop their Jewish identity.

The one I just want to focus on here is called Dorothea Friederike von Schlegel, the oldest child of Moses, who was born Brendel Mendelssohn (1764 – 1839).

She married one Simon Veit – whose father Judah was another banker:

Juda Veit (1716-1786), was a wool merchant and founder of a bank. He was descended from one of the fifty Jewish families that had been expelled from Vienna and settled in Brandenburg, at the invitation of Elector Friedrich Wilhelm. They were from the upper classes and possessed a “letter of protection”, allowing them and their descendants the right of residence.

====

Brendel and her two surviving children converted to Catholicism.

The two sons were famous painters, and they joined an influential movement called ‘The Nazarenes’.

In THIS POST, I brought this snippet of information:

  • The Sabians’ history begins when a group calling themselves the Nasoreans (who were made up of the Sabian / Mandean priesthood, not the plebs) left ancient Judea, because they were being persecuted in Jerusalem, and moved first to Haran,in the 1st century CE, and then later to Iran, and finally Iraq.

====

Are you starting to see how the same names, the same ideas, just keep recycling over and over, with this stuff?

It’s not an accident, or a coincidence.

And these people then go on to influence the rest of society in some profound ways. Artists, poets, writers and philosophers were the ‘celebrities’ of 200 years ago, and as it was then, so it still is today.

====

Breindall herself goes on to become a novelist, and after her divorce from Simon Veit, remarries the (non-Jewish) philosopher Freidrich Schlegel.  This from Wikipedia:

Schlegel was a promoter of the Romantic movement and inspired Samuel Taylor ColeridgeAdam Mickiewicz and Kazimierz Brodziński. The first to notice what became known as Grimm’s law, Schlegel was a pioneer in Indo-European studiescomparative linguistics, and morphological typology, publishing in 1819 the first theory linking the Indo-Iranian and German languages under the Aryan group.

====

Some points to note:

Adam Mickiewicz was an influential Polish poet, and (together with his wife) almost certainly came from a family of Frankists who ‘converted’ together with Jacob Frank:

Mickiewicz’s mother, descended from a converted Frankist family”: Encyclopaedia Judaica, art. Mickiewicz, Adam. “Mickiewicz’s Frankist origins were well-known to the Warsaw Jewish community as early as 1838 (according to evidence in the AZDJ of that year, p. 362). The parents of the poet’s wife also came from Frankist families.” Encyclopaedia Judaica, art. Frank, Jacob, and the Frankists.

====

While I can’t pin it down 100%, the name ‘Brodziński’ also sound very Jewish, and a whole branch of the notorious Sabbatean-Frankist Schorr family changed their name to Brodsky:

Meïr Schor of Brody, Galicia, married and settled in Zlatopol, government of Kiev, Russia, where he assumed the name “Brodski” (from Brody). His father, Alexander Ḥayyim Schor, was a son of Deborah Babad, daughter of R. Alexander Schor, author of “Simlah Ḥadashah,” who lived in Zolkiev in the latter part of the seventeenth century. Meïr had five sons, all of whom became very wealthy; and the Brodskis are now considered the richest Jewish family in Russia.

Meir Schor’s uncle was the notorious Elisha Schorr (Wolowski) – one of Jacob Frank’s closest ‘disciples’, whose family mass-converted out to Catholicism together with Frank.

So I wouldn’t be shocked to discover that ‘Kazimierz Brodzinski’ was another assimilated Frankist.

====

English Poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge is also interesting.

For now, let’s just content ourselves with this snippet about him, which foreshadowed the Kibbutz movement in Israel by 200 years:

Coleridge planned [a utopian community] to be built on two principles: “Pantisocracy” (meaning government by all) and “Aspheterism” (meaning general ownership of property). The scheme called for a small group of educated individuals to give up their possessions and labor together for the common good.

====

At this point, I’ve stopped believing in ‘coincidences’.

====

Let’s return to Breindall Mendelssohn, and her second husband, the philosopher Freidrich Schlegel.

This comes from HERE:

It was one of the founders of German Romanticism, Friedrich Schlegel (1772 – 1829), who applied the term Aryan to what they saw as an Indic-Nordic ‘master race’.

Schlegel in fact had a Jewish wife and campaigned for Jewish emancipation in Germany, so the role he plays in this history is somewhat ironic. It was his ideas that ended up influencing many anti-Semitic and Aryan supremacist scholars throughout Europe.

====

That wasn’t an accident, or ‘irony’.

His wife – Moses Mendelssohn’s daughter – was the scion of a Sabbatian-Frankist family who actually hated the real Jews, hated their Torah, and hated the spiritual light authentic Jews and Judaism could shine into the world.

I don’t know what Schlegel’s own background was, but as we’ve been discovering, the ease with which so many of these people apparently ‘married out’ of their own faiths suggests there may well have been hidden links between various externally ‘xtian’ people and the externally ‘Jewish’ Sabbatian-Frankists.

====

Let’s stop here, for now.

You can see more of what happened to some of the Mendelssohn descendents HERE – and it’s worthwhile taking a peek, so you can get an idea of just how much impact these Frankist families have had on so many areas of our modern world.

And this is just one family, and one Frankist family that didn’t have all of its tentacles ‘airbrushed’ out of history.

BH, when God gives me some more energy, I’ll continue trying to dig through all this.

But in the meantime, let me wish all my lovely readers a happy, meaningful Purim, where, BH, the olam hafuch will finally start to right itself in an obvious way.

So many Portuguese conversos ‘morphed’ into elitist Ashkenazi bankers.

And also, ‘ashkenazi’ rabbis and Av Beit Dins.

Which is kinda shocking – to me – because remember that these Portuguese conversos had for the most part been living as outwardly pious Catholics for well over a hundred years.

That means no brit mila, no kosher food, spending every Sunday genuflexing to some massive avoda zora nailed up on the wall of the church, taking the ‘sacrament’ at mass….

Again, do you really want to tell me that a Jewish soul, a Jewish family, could be breaking so many massive, core commandments – while totally immersed in idol worship – for over a century, and that wouldn’t leave some very spiritual stains on their neshama?

And btw, that was going on for more like 200 years, but I’m erring on the side of cautious understatement here, for once.

====

So, in today’s effort to close down some tabs, let’s take a look at some more of these Portuguese Conversos, and where their descendants actually ended up in the apparently ‘ashkenazi’ Jewish world.

Let’s start with the ‘Paradesi Jews’.

You can read all about them HERE, on Wiki, because I’m just going to pick out the more relevant bits in this post, to keep the story moving forward and to avoid overwhelm.

Here’s a truncated summation of the back story:

The East India Company (EIC) wanted to break the monopoly of Portugal in trading with Golconda diamonds and precious stones from the mines of Golkonda. The EIC entered India around 1600 and had built the Fort St. George (White Town) fortress by 1644 at the coastal city of Madras, now known as Chennai.

EIC policy permitted only its shareholders to trade in Golconda diamonds and precious stones from the mines. The Company considered the Madras Jews to be interlopers because they traded separately through their Jewish community connections.

Madras Jews specialised in Golconda diamonds, precious stones and corals. They had very good relations with the rulers of Golkonda and this was seen as beneficial to Fort St. George, so Madras Jews were gradually accepted as honourable citizens of Fort St. George/Madras.

====

Plain English:

Portugal, and the Portuguese crypto-Jews in particular, were monopolising the trade in Golconda diamonds. The (British) East India Company wanted in on this lucrative business, so initially they saw these Portuguese traders as a threat.

And then they realised that if they could be brought over to the East India Company, they would open all those diamond doors for them.

====

The leaders of these Portuguese diamond-dealing crypto-Jews in Madras was one Jaime Paiva (also known as Jacques de Paiva).

He nominally belonged to the Sephardic community back in Amsterdam, and was one of the British East India Company’s main contacts, in the Golconda diamond business.

If his name sounds familiar, that’s because I’ve already mentioned him here on the blog.

After Jaime Paiva died, in 1687, his wife, Hieronima became the mistress of none other than Elihu Yale – President of the East India Company settlement in Fort St. George, at Madras – and another crypto-Jew who stayed externally a Welsh / American ‘xtian’.

(I’m still working on the Welsh part of this crypto-Jewish story, it’s even more convoluted than this other stuff. Which is saying something.)

====

I’ve written a lot about Elihu Yale, including HERE and HERE.

For this post, here’s what I want to focus on, from the Wiki on Hieronima:

After her husband Jacques (Jaime) de Paiva (Pavia)’s death, she took over her husband’s diamond and coral business.

Under the guardianship of Elihu Yale she traded in her own name and was active as a merchant, having invoices and accounts in her own name, trading in textiles, spices, diamonds and corals.

It appears she also acted as a business agent for Yale, selling supplies embezzled from the East India Company. From 1689, when Yale’s wife returned to England, Catherine Nicks and Hieronima da Paiva acted as the first ladies of the governor’s residence.

====

A little while ago, I finished reading a (whitewashed…) book called Elihu Yale, Merchant, Collector & Patron to try and glean more information about his crypto-Jewish links.

His ties to the slave trade were totally ignored, but I did learn that Yale was also a freemason, and a member of the Royal Society.

Here’s what else I learned from that book (p157):

“The [Golconda rough diamond] trade was now dominated by England. This development resulted from the decision of the East India Company in 1664 to…permit outsiders to trade in precious stones…which coincided with the settlement in London of Portuguese-Jewish merchants, free to practise their religion there….

“Through the expertise of the Portuguese-Jewish community, London became the centre of the of international diamond trade…[A] petition to the East India Company in 1695 declared: “the business formerly driven by way of Italy of Portugal is now become almost a sole English trade.”

====

Remember, that back in Europe, many of the Jewish community’s leaders were court factors.

That meant they were engaged by the nobility and royal houses to manage their money and investments; act as international brokers with other countries, and to source things like massive diamonds, gems, corals, and other status symbols, for the nobles, kings and queens.

This gave these Jews a very high level of access to the royal courts – and also made them the defacto leaders of the Jewish communities they were meant to represent.

We’ll come back to this side of the story another time, but many of these ‘court Jews’ were given the concession to ‘tax farm’ their Jewish communities. What this essentially means is that they paid a certain amount of ‘tax’ out of their own pocket to the royal coffers, in return for being able to charge and collect taxes from the Jewish communities under their sway.

And of course, they factored in a hefty increase on the amounts they were charging their brethren, as tax farming was a business, that made rich people richer at the expense of the poor.

And it still is.

====

But today, let’s stay focussed on the diamonds side of this dirty business, to see where that leads us.

The name of Hieronima da Paiva’s brother was Joseph Almanza. When I started searching for more details about his family, that’s how I got to the Wiki entry on the ‘Paradesi Jews‘, where I learned some more interesting stuff.

Like:

“Portuguese Jews were used as diplomats by the East India Company to expand English trading.”

In other words, these Portuguese Conversos, who were so comfortable in the xtian world, and also so skilled in the world of international trade – but who also kept popping in and out of the formal Jewish community, often at the highest levels of those communities – were the ‘glue’ that held these international trade networks together for the non-Jewish rulers.

And they were particularly active in the East India Companies of England, France and Holland.

====

As well as Jacques de Paiva, there were some other Portuguese Converso merchant names I started looking up, too, including:

  • Antonio do Porto,
  • Pedro Pereira,
  • Fernando Mendes Henriques,
  • Bartolomeo Rodrigues,
  • Domingo do Porto,
  • Alvaro da Fonseca,
  • Samuel de Castro,
  • Salomon Franco,
  • Isaac Sardo Abendana and
  • Avraham Navarro.

Like me, you’ve probably never heard of these people before.

But they, and their descendants, have helped shaped history in the Jewish community, and the wider world, for three centuries.

====

I’m not going to go through all of them in this blog post – and a lot of them have been deliberately erased from ‘official’ Jewish history – but let’s just pick out a few names, to see if we can get a flavor of who they really were, and what they were really up to.

We’ll put the ‘de Porto’ family to one side for now. In other research, it seems that at least one one branch of them morphed in the Gunzburg / Ginsburgh family, and that family line deserves at least one post of its own.

We already know that all these families just keep intermarrying with each other, so I just need one ‘thread’ to come loose, in order to be able to track down more of the extended family members.

And the thread that came loose this time is the ‘De Castro’ family.

====

Over on Geni, I started HERE, with a member of the De Castro family called Jacob Henriques de Castro. His family are Portuguese converso Jews, who end up in Amsterdam, and then within a few clicks, they also start connecting up to some of the other families we’re looking at here, like the de Pintos, the Henriques and the Pereiras.

Click, click, click – and then I notice something interesting, that one ‘Hannah Capodoce Pereira‘ is listed as the mother of Heinrich Aron von Pereira-Arnstein.

Whoah bessy! 

How did a Portuguese Converso end up becoming the mother of an ennobled Viennese ‘Heinrich’?

And here is where the story starts to take one of those interesting turns.

====

Heinrich marries Freifrau Henriette – the daughter of ‘Fanny’ von Arnstein and Baron Nathan Adam von Arnstein.

I never heard of these people before, even though ‘Baron Nathan’ is meant to be a big assimilated Jewish banker who was ennobled in 1798, so I go and look them up. Here‘s a little of what I find (in German…):

[Baron Nathan is the] son of the banker, wholesaler and imperial court factor Ascher Anselm (later Adam) Adam Isak Arnsteiner and Sibylle Gomperz, wife Franziska (Fanny) Itzig (born November 29, 1758 Berlin, † June 8, 1818 in Dreihaus near Vienna), daughter of the banker, factory owner and ironworker Daniel Itzig…

The [Arnsteiner & Eskeles] banking house was decisive for the financial system in Austria for three decades (taking over large government bonds, financial transactions, money lending transactions, army deliveries); it was essential to the establishment of the Oesterreichische Nationalbank (1816; Eskeles became director and vice governor) and the first Austrian savings bank (1819).

====

The first thing I notice is how similar all this sounds to the activities of the fake-name Rothschilds.

The second thing I notice is the name Daniel Itzig, who has been on my ‘Frankist-Reform’ radar for a long time.

This from Wikipedia:

Daniel Itzig (also known as Daniel Yoffe 18 March 1723 in Berlin – 17 May 1799 in Potsdam) was a Court Jew of Kings Frederick II the Great and Frederick William II of Prussia

Itzig was a banker and a mintmaster in partnership with Veitel-Heine Ephraim. Together they leased all the mints in Saxony and Prussia. During the Seven Years’ War they assisted Frederick the Great in debasing the Saxonian currency… Itzig was one of the very few Jews in Prussia to receive full citizenship privileges, as a “Useful Jew”. He became extraordinarily wealthy as a consequence…

He funded early members of the Haskalah secular movement, including Rabbi Israel of Zamosch (Moses Mendelssohn‘s teacher), Samuel Rominow (an Italian Jewish artist) and Isaac Satanow.

In 1761 he began planning a school for poor Jewish boys in Berlin, and in 1778 his son together with [his son-in-law] Daniel Friedlander opened the first “free school” (Freischule) called “Hinuch Neorim”, Hebrew: ‘Teaching the Youth’. The school and adjacent printing house later became one of the main institutions of the Haskalah movement.

At the same time he founded and funded a Yeshiva and brought Rabbi Hirschel Levin and Rabbi Joseph ben Meir Teomim [author of the Pri Megadim] to Berlin to teach there.

Itzig was the official head (‘Oberältester’) of the Jewish community in Berlin from 1764 until his death in 1799.

====

Plain English:

Daniel Itzig and his son-in-law, David Friedlander, were the leaders of the haskalah movement in Berlin, that quickly morphed into Reform, a generation later. Two of Itzig’s grand-daughters married two of the sons of Moses Mendelssohn.

Let’s take a quick look at Fanny Itzik, his daughter, the mother-in-law of Heinrich Pereira, before we take a closer look at Daniel Itzig’s business partner.

Here’s some of what I learn about her:

In 1814, Fanny von Arnstein introduced a new custom from Berlin, hitherto unknown in Vienna: the Christmas tree.

How’s that for a claim to fame.

====

Her sister, Caecilie Itzig was married to another assimilated, ennobled, Austrian banker and court Jew called Bernhard von Eskeles.

Bernard’s dad was Rabbi Issachar Berush (1692-1753), who was the son of Gabriel Eskeles, and the son-in-law of another fabulously court Jew / rabbi, Samson Wertheimer.

Before we continue, I want to point out that whenever you come across Jewish families at this particular period of time, and in these locations, where there is such a significant and extreme ‘break’ with orthodox Judaism – it’s always a red flag that you might well be dealing with closet Frankists.

====

Over on the Jewish Encyclopaedia, we discover a bit more about this branch of the Eskeles clan:

Eskeles was rabbi at Kremsir from 1710 till 1719…

On Sept. 10, 1725, the emperor, Charles VI., named Eskeles “Landesrabbiner” of Hungary… In a decision of 1725 Eskeles signed himself “Issachar Bär of Cracow, rabbi of Nikolsburg and Moravia, Eisenstadt, and Hungary, and of the district of Mayence.” …

When in 1742 a heavy tax was imposed upon the Jews of Moravia, the exertions of Eskeles and Baron d’Aguilar secured its annulment by Maria Theresa. Another decree, banishing in midwinter of 1744-45 the Jews of Bohemia and Moravia because they were suspected of Prussian leanings, was revoked upon the intercession of Eskeles and D’Aguilar.

====

Here’s a bit more interesting information about R’ Gabriel Eskeles, father of Issachar, and grand-father of Bernhard:

He was married to Esther, daughter of Roza Yollis-Babad.

Here, we get into ‘Kevin Lawrence Hanit’ territory, so there is a lot of deliberate confusion. But at this stage, I can tell you that Roza’s brother is probably R’ Mordechai Yollis.

Mordechai Yollis is married to Hinda Margolis.

And Hinda Margolis is the sister of the notorious Sabbatean-Frankist who openly converted to Catholicism along with Jacob Frank, Elisha Schorr (Wolowsky).

====

We know that all these ‘Sabbatian-Frankist’ families married into each other, again and again and again.

To put this is simply as possible, Baron Bernhard von Eskeles grandma Esther was the first cousin of one of the most notorious ‘open’ Frankists and senior supporters of Jacob Frank, Elisha Schor.

Ergo, it’s probable the Eskeles family were also Sabbatean-Frankists. And that means the Itzig family may well also have been Sabbatean-Frankists. Which means that Moses Mendelssohn, and David Friedlander – the ‘founders’ of Reform – were probably also Sabbatean-Frankists.

====

We’ll get back to Daniel Itzig’s (bent…) business partner Veitel Heine Ephraim another time.

Because I want to end this post by taking a closer look at the Baron d’Aguilar, who apparently lobbied for the Jewish community against Maria Therese, together with R’ Gabriel Eskeles.

This comes from Wikipedia:

Baron Diego Lopes Pereira d’Aguilar (born 1699 Portugal; died 10 August 1759, London) was a Portuguese-born London-based Jewish businessman, community leader and philanthropist, originally a Portuguese converso, who lived in the 18th century. He was created a baron of the Holy Roman Empire by Empress Maria Theresa of Austria.

In 1722 he went from Lisbon to London, and then to Vienna. From 1725 to 1747 he held the tobacco monopoly in Austria, and had the power to establish factories and regulate prices… D’Aguilar was a great favorite with the empress…

D’Aguilar, who together with his family enjoyed the greatest freedom of belief, was the founder of the Spanish or Turco-Jewish community in Vienna, and succeeded in obtaining many concessions for the relief of his oppressed fellow worshippers….

He left Vienna suddenly in 1749, because the Spanish government demanded his extradition. He went to London.

====

The first Baron D’Aguilar was married to one Dona Simha da Fonseca – no doubt, related in some way to the ‘Alvarez de Fonseca’ on the list of Paradesi Jewish merchants, listed above.

As I keep trying to show you, it’s a very small gene pool, that all these people actually swim in.

====

Here’s some interesting stuff about the ‘Pereira’ family:

Pedro Pereira appears on the list of the main leaders of the ‘Paradesi Jews’, quoted way back at the beginning of this article.

One of Shabtai Tzvi’s most ardent – and richest – supporters amongst the Portuguese converso Jewish community in Amsterdam was a merchant by the name of Abraham Pereira (from HERE):

Abraham Pereira, said to be the richest Jew in Amsterdam and certainly a deeply devout man, lent his enormous prestige to the cause and, after publishing a comprehensive book of morals for repentant sinners (La Certeza del Camino, 1666), left with his entourage for the Levant, although he was held up in Leghorn.

(You’ll recall from HERE that Leghorn became a hotbed for Sabbatians, and – not coincidentally – was the home town of Moses Montefiore’s family.)

Baron D’Aguilar’s son, Ephraim Lópes Pereira d’Aguilar, became a naturalised British citizen, and held large tracts of land in America – before his luck changed. He married Simha “Sarah” Mendes da Costa, whose father Moses (or ‘Anthony’) was also pulling the strings behind the Bank of England long before the ‘Rothschilds’ apparently showed up:

Moses Mendes da Costa (died 1747), also called Anthony da Costa, was an 18th-century English banker.

He was so successful as a banker, that he has sometimes been said to have been on the board of the Bank of England; however, although he held shares in the bank, he was not in fact ever a director.

====

If you check out the Wiki for him, you’ll see that most of Ephraim Lopes Pereira’s descendants married English or Scottish nobility. And that he was also a Freemason.

====

And the last thing to tell you, to bring this full circle, comes back to our original ‘Pereira’, Heinrich Aron von Pereira-Arnstein, above.

According to THIS:

[Heinrich] Pereira was of Portuguese descent (descendant of Lopez Pereira, * around 1700 Amsterdam, allegedly ennobled by Charles VI); he was adopted by his father-in-law on May 6, 1810. Pereira was one of the most important bankers of the Vormärz and was a leading figure in government bonds.

====

Lopez Pereira is the same name of the two Barons D’Aguilar.

The Tobacco concession in Austria was also held by the ‘Popper’ family, that I’ve written about extensively HERE and HERE, as being tightly connected with the Frankists, and particularly Moses Dobrushka / Junius Frey.

====

At this stage, we can sum things up like this:

The same people have been running the show in the Jewish community for centuries.

They marry each other – and always have.

They maintain their grip on their money and power by keeping things ‘in the family’ – regardless of how it appears to outsiders.

They ‘pretend’ to be Jews, when it suits them, and they ‘pretend’ to be xtians – or anything else – when it suits them.

But their agenda is still a Sabbatean-Frankist-Freemason-Antinomian-anti-God-anti-Torah one.

And these people- and their yucky ideas and behaviors – are still to be found all over every part of the Jewish community, and particularly in leadership positions.

But hopefully, not for much longer.

The slave trade was big business.

Literally.

In this post, I want to set out some basic information about how the modern slave trade got started, the precedent it set for a global economic model of doing business, and why Portugal – and the Portuguese crypto-Jews – found themselves acting as the main conduits for the slave trade.

Yalla, let’s do it.

====

Let’s be clear, that the slave trade has existed since time immemorial.

Every time that one nation, one people, one army, conquered another, they usually sold at least some of the people they’d captured as slaves, or kept them as slaves themselves.

I’m not enough of a Torah learner to give a treatise on how the Torah views slavery, but I can tell you that the Torah limited the period of slavery to 7 years. If the slave wanted to continue being a slave after that, they could – but it was frowned on in the Torah.

And of course, it was the slave’s own choice to continue serving their master after that time. (IF the master was keeping the Torah’s laws. Sadly, a big if.)

Also, the Torah set out a bunch of rules on how to treat slaves that even stated that if there was only one pillow in the house, the slave should get it instead of the master.

So clearly, ‘Torah-sanctioned enslavement’ is a very different beast from what was actually occurring in the slave trade.

With that intro out the way, let’s begin.

====

Back in 1711, a few British politicians came up with the idea of creating what became known as ‘The South Seas Company‘, as part of their effort to raise money to cover the United Kingdom’s ever-increasing debts.

The UK was in debt because it was fighting two wars at once, and (just like today…) spending on the army was taking a huge amount of currency out of circulation.

The basic idea is that the people who the UK government owed money to could ‘swap’ their debt for shares in this new company, which was sold as having fantastic prospects for trading in the South Seas. As soon as the company was formed, the UK government started ‘pumping it up’ by promising enormous potential profits – at every turn.

====

But, get this: It was all a crock.

At that time, the ‘South Seas’ were controlled by the Spanish, and the corrupt British politicians in charge of the treasury knew that there was effectively zero chance of any ‘trading’ going on, because the British were engaged in a long, drawn out war with Spain at that point.

But the ‘South Seas Company’ had great marketing and fabulous PR, so a lot of people still bought into it, even though it had nothing to really sell, no money to invest in trade, and no real prospects of being able to develop a trade network.

And slowly but surely, the share price started to lift off.

====

In 1713, the war over the Spanish Succession finally ended, after a decade, with the signing of the Treaty of Utrecht.

At that point, the South Seas Company finally started to make some cash, as it was granted the Assiento de Negros by the British government, for 30 years.

Long story short, back in 1479, the Spanish and the Portuguese effectively divided the world up between them (I know, the arrogance of all this!)

Spain got South America (amongst other things), while Portugal got Africa.

The only way Spain could make a go of the massive new tracts of land it was conquering in the ‘New World’ was by importing slaves from Africa to work the land.  Of course, this is because Spain effectively murdered most of the ‘New World’s indigenous inhabitants, during the process of conquering it.

So, Spain had gotten used to the idea that it had to import African slaves to its colonies in the New World, primarily via the Portuguese.

====

Let’s interject here that many of the merchants involved in international trade and maritime trade at this point were, of course, Jews.

And let’s also state for the record that many of these merchants with a Jewish background were actually crypto-Jews, who’d actually renounced their Jewish religion a long time ago, and had been living as xtians for a couple of centuries, already, by the time we get to 1713.

====

Here’s how Wikipedia explains what was going on:

The Spanish were reliant on Portuguese slave traders for all their requirements.

The asiento specified the places of importation and the points of delivery, as well as navigation routes. The contract was usually obtained by foreign merchant banks who cooperated with local or foreign traders, specialized in shipping.

Different organisations and individuals would bid for the right to hold the asiento.

====

Notice how merchant banks were mixed up with the slave trade right from the start.

Tuck that piece of info away for now, but be aware that there is nothing new under the sun. And remember that going forward, when more information about human trafficking in our days starts to explode across the internet.

Any day now.

====

So, after the Treaty of Utrecht, the British government acquires ‘rights’ to supply 4,800 African slaves a year, for the next 30 years, to the Spanish colonial empire, and they pass those ‘rights’ to the South Seas company.

These are real people we are talking about, who were forcibly taken from their homes and families on the African continent to be worked as slaves in barbarous conditions.

I’m not going to wax heavy on the moralising, but it is just striking me as I write this that the whole Western ‘economic system’ is built, mamash, on human suffering and enslavement – and has been, right from the start.

The ‘Economic Hit Man’ model was just the latest incarnation of it.

====

====

And the enslavement of you and me, in debt; in ridiculous taxes; in a corrupt system that was designed always and only to serve that tiny group of elites at the top – well, it’s just the latest ‘update’ of a model of human enslavement and suffering that has been operating for centuries.

No wonder it has to come crashing down before Moshiach comes.

====

So, the South Sea Company now has this ‘contract’ to supply 144,000 slaves to the Spanish colonies.

And they also have competition from Dutch merchants (where a large number of ‘conversos’ also ended up), because Holland had been granted ‘rights’ to supply slaves to Spain under the Treaty of Munster,  75 years earlier, in 1648.

====

A lot of people don’t know this, but Spain actually controlled large chunks of Western Europe, for hundreds of years.

This from Wiki:

The Dutch Revolt, also called the Eighty Years’ War, of 1568–1648 was the struggle by the Seven United Provinces of the Netherlands for independence from the Spanish Empire…

[B]y 1581 the Northern provinces of the Netherlands were de facto independent…

Despite these successes, the Dutch failed to expel the Spanish from the wealthy provinces of the Southern Netherlands, modern-day BelgiumLuxembourg plus the Nord-Pas-de-Calais and Longwy regions of northern France.

====

The long arm of the Spanish Inquisition literally reached more than half way around the world.

And with Jews persona non grata in so many other parts of the world during the early Middle Ages – including the British Isles – well.

Many Jews probably felt they had little choice, except to pretend to be xtians at this time.

====

It’s a bit of a tangent here, but I think it’s a good time to underline the fact that crypto Jews could be found all over the world, in all different countries by the 17th century.

For example, when the Jews were formally expelled from England in 1290, some of them left. But many of them just became ‘crypto-Jews’ and went underground.

And a lot of those ‘crypto-Jews’ ended up in the neighboring countries of Ireland, Wales and Scotland, which explains what ‘David Yale‘, the crypto-Jewish ‘good protestant’ was doing in the middle of the Welsh countryside; and also, how so many Jews ended up at the highest stratas of Scottish society, too.

It’s totally a post for another time, but if you have time and inclination, there’s an interesting book you can download for free HERE called: ‘When Scotland was Jewish’.

The point is, that there were literally hundreds of thousands of ‘crypto Jews’ who had Jewish roots, but who’d been living mamash like goyim for hundreds of years, but who would ‘recycle themselves’ into the Jewish community, as and when it became expedient to do so.

====

There’s a huge discussion to be had here about the whole issue of ‘who is a Jew’, and I certainly am not pretending to be able to provide any answers to that question.

But it does underline the point – again and again and again – that it’s not yichus that matters, but deeds and actions of the individual.

Part of the reason the trail keeps going cold on the genealogy of so many of our leading Sages, before the fifteen hundreds, is because so many of them descend from families who were mamash living like goyim, for centuries.

And don’t tell me that eating traif 24/7, and attending mass, and hanging out in goyish society didn’t leave any lasting impact or scars on those Jewish souls and their descendents, because that’s patently a bunch of c**p.

And that’s also why the modern State of Israel is doing it’s best to close the door on the whole question of recognising modern-day ‘conversos’. It would just bring everything way too close to home.

Ok, back to the slave trade.

====

The ‘Asiento’ wasn’t just about slaves.

It was also about conducting international trade.

The Spanish Treasury used ‘asientos’ as a debt tool, whereby the merchants and traders would ‘buy rights’ to operate in their territories, and to ‘sell’ the Spanish colonies things they needed – like African slaves.

And then in return, these traders would also earn the ‘right’ to take the stuff being produced in these colonies (with slave labor), such as tea, coffee, sugar, tobacco, spices, and even gold and gems – and to sell them elsewhere on the open market.

So, the private companies and merchants bore the ‘risks’ involved with the trade, while the Spanish treasury got some safe cash to continue funding its outlay.

====

The South Seas Company subcontracted for the slaves required to the Royal African Company – another private company created via Royal Charter, and owned by English royalty – Charles II and his brother, James II – to supply slaves to British colonies:

Between 1662 and 1731, the Company transported approximately 212,000 slaves, of whom 44,000 died en route, around 3,000 per year.

By that time, they also transported slaves to English colonies in North America. By contrast, through Zanzibar, East Africa’s main slave-trading port, Omani Arabs exported as many as 50,000 slaves per year in the 19th century.

====

The Arabs were also heavily engaged in the slave trade.

It wasn’t just the British, the Dutch, the Portuguese, and the ‘crypto Jews’ who served them as middlemen, to facilitate the trade.

But I’m concentrating on the Western world, and the ‘crypto-Jewish’ side of things, as that’s the part the Jewish community needs to know about – and to make some real teshuva about.

====

Ok, let’s recap what we’ve learned so far.

For around 3-400 years, up until around the 17th century, Spain was the leading imperial force in the world, and had colonies all over the planet.

Portugal also had massive land holdings all over the world.

The expulsion of Jews from Spain occurred in 1492.

Both before and after that time, there were huge numbers of Jews who externally excepted xtianity, and became ‘crypto Jews’, often living as non-Jews for even hundreds of years.

On top of that, there were also many other ‘crypto Jews’ all over the place as a result of tens of forced expulsions, including when Jews were expelled from England, in 1290.

You can see a big long list of those expulsions HERE.

So by the 18th century, much of the Jewish community was either ‘underground’, or had very recently been ‘underground’, and had been immersed in xtian culture – mamash – for centuries.

And people were washing in and out of the Jewish / Xtian / Muslim communities very freely.

So the whole idea of yichus is frankly a big joke.

====

This is a huge subject, so let’s just finish today with what happened with the South Sea Company.

Long story short, a new King arose in the UK at this time, called George I from Hanover.

And that lead to a massive reorganisation of the South Seas Company board of directors, as the King started stuffing the board with his own people and politicians.

(Does any of this sound familiar?)

====

You’ll recall from THIS post, that ‘Rabbi Jacob Franks’ father, Adam Franks, was a very close advisor to this new ‘German’ King, George 1.

I also just found out that George 1st’s long-time mistress was a woman named Melusine von der Schulenburg.

Isn’t it curious, that she has the strange name of the ‘half woman / half snake’ that we talked about HERE, as the inspiration for the Starbucks logo?

Starbucks Melusine

Clearly, none of this is a coincidence.

====

Let’s cut a very long story short.

The South Seas Company board basically engaged in the first modern-style ‘pump and dump‘ scam in history, with the South Seas Company shares.

If you don’t know what a ‘pump and dump’ operation is, read THIS:

They deliberately created what became known as the ‘South Seas Bubble’, where gullible investors were encouraged to trade in stocks which had very little real value supporting them, but which were ‘pumped up’ with false PR and false information in the public arena.

When the greed party finally stopped in September 1720, and the shares eventually collapsed, the economic impact was totally devastating:

“Company failures now extended to banks and goldsmiths, as they could not collect loans made on the stock, and thousands of individuals were ruined, including many members of the aristocracy. With investors outraged, Parliament was recalled in December and an investigation began. Reporting in 1721, it revealed widespread fraud amongst the company directors and corruption in the Cabinet.”

There is nothing new under the sun.

====

You can read more about the South Seas Company HERE, and I want to just draw your attention to something interesting:

The South Seas Company was still going in the 19th century, and it’s ‘sub governor’ under the ‘Governor’ Queen Victoria in 1838 was one Charles Franks.

I am willing to bet good money he’s related to ‘Rabbi Jacob Franks’ – and to a bunch of other ‘crypto-Jews’, too.

Nothing about modern history is what we we’ve been taught.

And what was going on then, is still going on now.

Which is why we have to gird our loins, and keep unpeeling this onion until we figure out what’s really happening in our world, in 2021, and who is really behind it.

====

Over the next few posts, I want to take a closer look at George I, and his advisors and helpers, many of whom were German-speaking Jews (and crypto-Jews) from places like Hamburg and Frankfurt.

We’ll also take a look at how so many of the Jewish community’s ‘big machers’ actually made their fortunes participating in the slave trade, both in the Sephardi and Ashkenazi world.

(Those were the same people who owned plantations, and who were acting as court factors, and who owned the rights to import stuff like tea and tobacco to Europe.)

And how all this stuff is connected to the rise of ‘Sabbatean Frankists’, and the modern State of Israel.

====

There’s a lot to cover!

So much to cover, it’s totally overwhelming…

But once it’s out in the open, more and more of the ‘lies’ propping up the evil in the world will start to implode all by themselves.

So yalla, let’s get on with it!

Wherever it takes us.

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

And of course, for the future.

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

====

I’m not at all ‘political’.

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

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

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

You can read more about Jacob Schiff on Wikipedia HERE.

Here’s a taster:

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

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

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

====

What fabulous yichus!!

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

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

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

====

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

Amongst other things.

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

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

And the PDF for Volume 2, HERE.

====

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

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

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

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

====

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

====

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

====

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

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

====

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

Here’s an excerpt of what it said:

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

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

====

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

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

And very quickly, I see something weird:

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

Now, why would someone want to do that?

====

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

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

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

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

Ahhhh.

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

====

I’d love to be able to tell you.

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

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

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

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

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

====

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

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

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

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

(And that’s certainly saying something…)

====

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

Schiff voted in favor of the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

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

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

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

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

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

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

====

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

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

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

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

What are they trying to hide?

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

Let’s dive in to another interesting – and bewildering – slice of Jewish Sabbatean history.

Following on from the last post, I wanted to take a closer look at the figure of ‘Moses Dobrushka’.

In the standard history we’re all taught, Moses Dobrushka is the son of Salomon and Schondel Dobrushka, a wealthy couple in Brnn / Brno, Czechoslavakia, where Jacob Frank goes to hang out for a few years, beginning 1773.

Moses is destined for the rabbinate, but in some versions of the ‘story’, he develops a taste for German poetry and becomes just another assimilation story.

In other (slightly more truthful….) versions of the story, Moses Dobruska is acknowledged to be a relative of Jacob Frank via his mother, “Schondl”. Schondl is fingered by Jacob Emden as being the defacto ‘leader’ of Sabbatean / Frankism in Moravia.

In contrast to most of the Polish uber-Frankists, who publically convert out of the faith to Catholicism, the Moravian Frankists stay outwardly Jewish – at least, for many years post-Frank.

But then the next generation starts to assimilate….

This comes from HERE:

On Dec. 17, 1773, Dobruska embraced the Roman Catholic faith, and at his baptism in Prague assumed the name of Franz Thomas Schönfeld. Subsequently, together with his brothers, he was raised to the nobility (1778); and for some time he held the position of associate director of the famous Garelli Library in Vienna.

Nothing is known in regard to the cause of Dobruska’s execution.

====

Those slightly more truthful versions of the ‘Moses Dobrushka story’ will tell you that his wife was the niece (and also adopted daughter) of a wealthy Jewish tobacco merchant named Joachim Popper.

When his niece decided to convert to xtianity, together with her husband ‘Moses Dobrushka’, uncle Joachim got really upset, and threatened to disinherit her.

Here ends the ‘official’ version of the story usually told in the Jewish world, full as it is of holes, evasions and even obvious falsehoods.

Let’s see if we can figure out what really happened, and who the real Moses Dobrushka actually was.

====

Before we begin, here’s a quick note on the name ‘Dobrushka’, and why I think it’s obviously made up.

After Jacob Frank’s conversion to Polish Catholicism in 1759 (at his second baptism in November of that year, he had the Polish King Augustus III as his godfather), Jacob Frank becomes known as ‘Josef Dobrucki‘.

Dobrucki just means ‘good person’ in Polish.

And ‘Dobrushka’ is just a regional variation on that name, and thus, is made up.

I have more reasons for thinking that, and I’ll set those out as we go along.

Now, let’s return to ‘Moses Dobrushka’, to see if we can figure out more of his family connections.

====

The first clue was Joachim Popper.

Or “Joachim Edler von Popper” (1722 – 1795), to give him his ennobled title. I’m going to bring the full Wiki entry for him here, as it’s a) pretty short and b) full of interesting information, that will help us try to track the real Moses Dobrushka down:

Joachim Edler von Popper (20 October 1722 – 11 May 1795) came from family of entrepreneurs and communal leaders from Březnice (Breznitz) in the Kingdom of Bohemia, now the Czech Republic. His father, Wolf Popper, was a Primator (Chief Judge) of the Jews of Bohemia.

Joachim Popper moved from Březnice to Prague and prospered there as a merchant (woolens, potash, whalebone), banker and manufacturer.[1]

In the mid-eighteenth century, Holy Roman Emperor Leopold II held a monopoly of tobacco in Austria-Hungary. Leopold divided the monopoly into leases and awarded them to Joachim, Israel Edler von Hönigsberg, and Salomon Dobruschka.

On 27 May 1790, Joachim was ennobled as the first “Edler von Popper”. He was the second Austrian Jew to be ennobled, not having to convert to Catholicism or be baptized in order to do so…

Joachim did not have any biological children, but he adopted his great-nephew Simon Popper, who inherited his title as Simon Edler von Popper. He also adopted his nephew Abraham Löbl Duschenes, who inherited his title as Andreas Josef Edler von Popper, and Elke Joß, who married Moses Dobruška.

Elke was disinherited because of her conversion.

====

So, I understood from this that there were three Jews who were making money in Moravia as tobacco merchants at this time, namely Joachim Popper, Israel Edler von Honisgberg, and Salomon Dobrushka – father of Moses, and husband of ‘Schondl’, the leading Sabbateans in Bohemia.

I could find precious little about the ‘Dobrushkas’ online, but the most useful thing I found – by far – was this account of them, on YIVO. Please do go and read it yourself, as it’s very interesting, and while I’m going to copy a few snippets below, it’s good to see all this stuff in situ.

See how many distortions you can spot for yourself, in this opening paragraph:

====

Prominent Moravian family that took its name from its patriarch, Jacob Moses Wimer (d. 1763), who came from Dobruschka, a small town near Königgrätz (Hradec Králové) in Bohemia.

In 1730 Wimer moved to Brünn (Brno) as a widower with two children, and despite the fact that Jews were forbidden to live in that city, was given permission to settle and to deal first in precious stones and jewelry, and later in spices and tobacco.

In 1750 he was granted a monopoly on the tobacco trade for the royal cities of Moravia.

Dobruschka’s daughter Esther married Adam Oppenheimer of Vienna, a relative of the court purveyor Samuel Oppenheimer. Dobruschka’s son Solomon (1715–1774) married Schöndl, daughter of Löbl Hirschl of Rzeszów and Güttel Jacobi of Prossnitz.

====

This is what it says about the Dobrushka family on geni.

You’ll notice something very interesting:

There are almost no children or grandchildren listed.

That always gives me a ‘red flag’ that I’m dealing with manipulated information, because usually it’s the children (the descendants…) who are inputting all this information about their ancestors onto the site. If there are no descendants, then where is all this ‘info’ coming from?

I can also find absolutely no information, in any form, about this ‘Jacob Moses Wimer’, who is supposedly the ancestor of Salomon Dobrushka.

And we already covered how ‘Dobrushka’ is a made up name.

===

Here’s some other things that set the antenna quivering:

Prossnitz is the home of the infamous Sabbatean ‘false messiah’ (and teacher of Jonathan Eybshutz), Yehuda Leib Prossnitz. There is no info anywhere on ‘Lobl Hirshl’ (other than what I discussed in this post), nor on ‘Guttl Jacobi’.

(BTW, ‘Jacobi’ or some other play on the word ‘Jacob’, like Jacobson, or Jacobovitz was used by lots of Frank’s descendants.)

I’m stressing this stuff so you can see how secular Jewish ‘academia’ is also very much part of the cover-up going on here.

So basically, in the real world, I hit a dead end very fast trying to track down ‘Schondl and Salomon Dobrushka’.

Lucky, I had a few other angles to explore.

====

Before we move on, tho, there’s some more pertinent information you should know about Moses Dobruska:

After he and his bride convert in 1775, Dobrushka becomes acquainted with a non-Jewish freemason in Prague called Adolf Ferdinand Edler von Schönfeld, whose name they adopt when they become ennobled.

According to YIVO:

[H]e also became acquainted with a group of former Jesuits who now practiced Freemasonry.

This connection resulted in his involvement with the creation of the Order of Asiatic Brethren, a Masonic organization founded in Vienna in 1780 or 1781 with the avowed purpose of accepting both Jews and Christians into its ranks.

Dobruschka devised a syncretic Masonic rite, introducing into it elements of Kabbalah as well as the fashionable ideas of the philosophes.

After a quarrel with the other leaders, however, he left the order in 1785.

====

We’ll come back to the Order of Asiatic Brethren in a future post. But it has ‘New World Order’ and ‘One World Religion’ stamped all over it.

Let’s see what else ‘Moses Dobrushka’ got up to, first.

When Jacob Frank dies in 1791, there’s a strange but recurrent line told, that he is offered the leadership of the Frankist movement, but turns it down.

That’s strange, at least to me, because the Frankist movement continued to be lead by Frank’s daughter, Eva, in the Offenbach court, after his death. So who was offering it to ‘Dobrushka’, I have no idea.

Now, the story gets even more strange.

====

‘Dobrushka’ makes a lot of money outfitting the Austrian army, in its war against the Turks.

In 1791, he’s living the life of a comfortable, wealthy man in Vienna.

Then, within a year, he’s joined the local, anti-royalty Jacobin club, and by 1792, he’s changed his name to Sigismund Gottlob Junius Brutus Frey, or Junius Frey, for short, and is actively participating in the French Revolution, together with his sister Leopoldine, and brother Emmanuel.

Rav Antelman sets out in his books, the link between Jacobinism and Sabbatean / Frankism, and here we’ve surfaced a strong connection, in real time.

Leopoldine ends up marrying none other than leading French revolutionary François Chabot in 1793.

But things don’t end well.

====

‘Junius Frey’ and Francois Chabot are both guillotined for two main reasons:

  1. They are suspected of being ‘double agents’, sent by Austrian royalty to try and free Empress Marie Antoinette.
  2. They get caught up in a massive financial scandal involving the French East India Company.

We will come back to the French – and the British – East India Company in a future post. There’s a lot hiding beneath that particular subject, too.

====

So, let’s recap what we now know about ‘Moses Dobrushka’:

  1. He is a blood relative of Jacob Frank.
  2. He converts in 1775 and makes a lot of money supplying the Austrian army.
  3. He’s also a Frankist, dabbling in dark kabbalah.
  4. He’s offered the leadership of the movement in 1791, but turns it down.
  5. He’s an active freemason, and even starts his own ‘secret society’ called the Order of Asiatic Brethren.
  6. He plays an active part in the French Revolution.
  7. His sister marries a leading French revolutionary.
  8. He is guillotined in 1795.

====

But who the heck was he, really?

Let’s go back to Joachim Popper, ‘Moses Dobrushka’s’ father in law, and the tobacco concession he held.

There’s very little I can find ‘in the real world’ about Joachim Popper, either, but when I plug in the name of the third ‘partner’ Israel Honig – I hit the jackpot.

Here’s a little of what I discover:

The son of a poor merchant, he received his early instruction in Bible and Talmud from his father. At the age of thirteen he went to Prague to continue his Talmudic studies, but two years later was obliged to join his father in business.

During his business trips in company with his brother Moses he became acquainted with the tobacco industry, which at that time was almost unknown in Austria.

In 1752 he was able, with his father and brother, to take over the lease of the tobacco trade of Prague, which lease, under contract with the government, he extended to several Austrian provinces.

====

I don’t want to overload you with information, but there were only three Jews who were involved in the tobacco concession in Austria at this time, and that was Israel Honig, his brother Aaron Moses, and his father, Lobl Henoch Honig.

We’re told this about Joachim Popper’s family:

His father, Wolf Popper, was a Primator (Chief Judge) of the Jews of Bohemia.

Israel Honig’s mother was called Pessel, and she was the daughter of that same Wolf Popper of Prague.

Israel Honig’s wife is called Katharina Wehle – she’s connected to that infamous Wehle family of Sabbatians who descended from the Eshel Avraham (Avraham Rovigo / Broda’s) circle of students.

(‘Schondel Dobrushka’s non-Jewish name is frequently given as ‘Katharina’.)

====

There’s more overlap, too. I found this on a genealogy site devoted to the ‘Honig’ family:

Israel Honig died in Vienna on January 19, 1808.

The majority of his descendants, however, were converted to Christianity. Israel Honig had six sons and one daughter. Maximillian Honig (1754-1832) helped to start the Vienna Jewish community and served for 30 years as Its representative.

Enoch Honig (1744-1815) another son, was the great grandfather of Isldor Busch (Bush). Leopold (Loew) Honig, Enoch’s son and Israel’s grandson, became a Frankist in Prague, under the influence of his father-in-law, Jonas Beer Wehle.

Aaron Moses, Israel’s brother and business partner, had ten children, six of whom were ennobled as Elder von Honigshofen in 1791.

Following the death of Aaron Moses Honig ‘s wife in 1796, all the children were baptized and this line of the family eventually died out.

====

I wish, so wish, I could set all this out clearly, and be able to tell you exactly who ‘Moses Dobrushka’ really was.

Was his father Israel Honig? Or Aaron Moses Honig? Or another brother (who didn’t hold the tobacco concession but also apostasized) called Adam Albert Honig?

Was ‘Joachim Popper’ one of these people? Or was he the older father, Lobl Henoch Honig, who disapproved of his children becoming christians?

I still don’t know.

But I can tell you that with each pass at this, I’m getting closer to finally figuring it out, with God’s help.

====

The last thing to mention, for now, is that Joachim Popper links us straight to the ‘Schick’ family.

That in turn links us to ‘Shlomo Zalman Rivlin’ of Shklov (married to the daughter of Natan Nota Notkin (Eybshutz, who is my candidate for the alter ego of the Alter Rebbe)), and also to Eliyahu ‘Platkes’ Rivlin, my candidate (potentially…) for the Vilna Gaon, and father of Shlomo Zalman Rivlin.

I’m still trying to figure it all out.

Honestly, I’m sometimes totally sick of all this already, and just want to stop and go play my guitar.

But every time I leave it, God keeps pulling me back.

I guess He really wants the truth ‘out there’.

And (mostly…) so do I.

Some mornings, I wake up with strange ideas in my head.

[Scroll down for some important updates and links].

It’s not uncommon when I’m trying to figure things out that my head gets so stuffed full of information, I start dreaming about it.

That’s probably not so weird, but what’s more peculiar is that often, I get some tip-offs in my dreams that can sometimes lead to some interesting breakthroughs. I don’t know if that happened this morning (we’ll all have to wait and see where all this goes).

But I can tell you that  today, I woke up with the peculiar notion that Jacob Frank is the son of Yehuda Leib Ashkenazi, who in turn was the son of the ‘Chacham Tzvi’ Ashkenazi, who was also the father of Jacob Emden.

I know, that sounds like outrageous nonsense, doesn’t it?

But this tale has had so many twists and turns in it, I’m at the stage where I’m assuming nothing we’ve been told is ‘the truth’, and that everything needs to be re-examined with an open mind.

====

So, let’s start with a blank sheet of paper, and jot down some of the things that just don’t make sense about the whole ‘Jacob Frank’ story we’ve all been told.

(BTW, part of the reason I’m writing this post as I go along, instead of giving it to you as a fait accompli is because I want to encourage you, dear reader, to start exploring things more for yourself, and to start making your own connections.

So this is kind of a ‘show and tell’ post, where you’ll hopefully see how one thing leads on to the next, and be inspired to start doing something similar yourself, to whatever piece of [mis]information you’re working with. I have no idea where it’s going, and we may not get a ‘breakthrough’ by the end, just so you know.)

====

According to the ‘official version‘, here’s what we know about Jacob Frank’s ancestry from Wikipedia:

Jacob Frank is believed to have been born as Jakub Lejbowicz to a Polish-Jewish family in Korołówka, in Podolia of Eastern Poland (now in Ukraine), in about 1726. The Polish historian Gaudenty Pikulski affirmed that Frank was born in Buchach and Agnon even showed the house where he was born was located on Korołówka street in Buchach. His father was a Sabbatean, and moved to Czernowitz, in the Carpathian region of Bukovina in 1730, where the Sabbatean influence at the time was strong.

As a travelling merchant in textile and precious stones he often visited Ottoman territories, where he earned the nickname “Frank“, a name generally given in the East to Europeans, and lived in the centers of contemporary Sabbateanism, Salonica and Smyrna.

====

Straight out the gate, I’m sitting here wondering how it is that the famous Israeli writer Shai Agnon can pinpoint Jacob Frank’s house in Buchach – but no-one can tell us who his mum and dad really were.

Here’s something else I’ve realised: the surname ‘Frank’ is a cover-up for Jacob Frank’s real surname.

Why do that?

Because the real Jacob Frank was not just some low-class ‘travelling merchant’, he was part of the Jewish elite, and came from a ‘rabbinical’ family with an illustrious pedigree.

Of that, I’m certain.

I just don’t know which family that actually was.

Yet.

Let’s continue to search for some clues.

====

When I start searching for ‘Jacob Frank’ on geni, I get two profiles back:

THIS ONE, which has been put up by people descended from Frankists, and where we learn this about him:


The Zoharist Tzadik or Rebbe.

His followers were later called Frankists. 60,000 of his followers became baptised Catholics beginning in 1760. Many others remained unbaptised in the Jewish communities. His two wives have been merged into one by many writers.

His two wives were cousins called Gracia (Chana) and Josefa (Chaya). In his writings he alludes to his seven daughters. However his youngest daughter Eva Frank and her followers destroyed any records of her half-sisters who were opposed to the direction that Eva was leading the Frankist movement.

====

And then THIS ONE about a ‘Rabbi Jacob Franks’ who was one of the earliest colonizers of the nascent US of A – and whose family tree has the infamous Keith Lawrence Hanit all over it.

Yes, I just fell down another rabbit hole again.

Let’s park him, for now, but I’ll definitely return to ‘Rabbi Jacob Franks’ of America, as I have a hunch that he and his family tree is hiding another very pertinent part of real Jewish history.

Let’s get back to the other Jacob Frank, (1726 – 1791), you know, the false messiah one.

====

If you recall, we already figured out that Josefa (Chaya) Frank, his first wife and mother of his first six daughters, was the child of the ‘bad’ Baal Shem of London, Samuel Hayyim Falk (1710-1782).

Falk moves to London, from Podolia, when Jacob Frank is 10 years old:

Sometime after 1736, Falk arrived in London. He lived at 35 Prescott Street, London, United Kingdom and at Wellclose Square, London until his death.

That timing is crucial, because even though the Jews of that period married young, they didn’t marry before their bar of batmitzvah.

So somehow or other, a shidduch is made between Josefa Chaya Falk, in London, and Jacob Frank.

Who else was hanging out in London, at that time?

Well, that’s a very interesting question.

====

The Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi of London at that time was someone who had many names, depending on where he lived.

He was known as:

Rabbi Hirschel Ben Arye Löb Levin;

Rabbi Hart Lyon (how he was known to his London congregants);

Rabbi Tzvi Hirsh Berlin; and also,

Hirshll Lobell

(Can you see why trying to keep everyone straight starts to get pretty challenging, pretty fast?)

Here’s a little bit about him from Wiki:

Rabbi Hirschel Ben Arye Löb Levin (also known as Hart Lyon and Hirshel Löbel; 1721 – 26 August 1800) was Chief Rabbi of Great Britain and of Berlin, and Rabbi of Halberstadt and Mannheim, known as a scholarly Talmudist.

His father is R’ Arye Leib Lowenstaam (1690 – 1755), who comes from a long lines of ‘illustrious rabbis’, and his mother is Miriam, the daughter of the Chacham Tzvi, and sister of Jacob Emden.

====

There’s a few things here that are tripping off the ‘something’s fishy’ switch.

  1. The Wikipedia entry for Arye Leib is being disputed as ‘unfactual’ (always a good indication that it’s actually got a lot of truth in it.)
  2. There’s a lot of strange inconsistencies about the life and career of Arye Leib. Here’s a few of them:
    1. He’s deposed from the rabbinate in Tarnopol by his own community in 1718 or 1720.
    2. He holds pulpits in Glogau, Lvov AND the Chief Rabbinate of Amsterdam, (all very big posts) apparently simultaneously.
    3. He lacks the skills to be a successful preacher (as his own brother-in-law, Jacob Emden, states) – yet he’s apparently offered one plum rabbinate job after another, including the Rabbinate of Prague, which he apparently turns down:

“His first approbation as Chief Rabbi of Amsterdam dates from June 1741, on the book Kehilat Shelomo al sefer Ein Yakov, written by Shelomo Yekutiel Zalman ben Yechiel Ichel Glogau, published in Amsterdam. Aryeh signs as residing from Glogau, supervising the congregation in Lviv and ready to serve in Amsterdam, where he was appointed but apparently did not yet dwell.”

3. He’s related to ‘Eliyahu the Baal Shem of Chelm’ (the ancestor of the Chacham Tzvi), who is also famous for his ‘practical kabbalah’ and making a golem…(Click on the link – there’s a lot of weird stuff going on around ‘Eliyahu the Baal Shem of Chelm’ – and there’s that name again.)

4. Arye Leib is apparently the rabbi in Glogau at the same time as one R’ Jacob Jokel Horowitz of Galuna.

====

That last name is really interesting.

I’ve been dreaming a lot about it, over the last week, and it’s connected to this, that I wrote over on the ravberland.com site, last year:

1) The Rav keeps talking about a ‘Rabbi Yaakov of Galuna’.

The Rav’s ‘Yaakov of Galuna’ is somehow equivalent to the Baal Shem Tov, who ‘finds the money’ on Erev Pesach and then goes off to bring his servant Rothschild back from exile, and to bring him back under his control. In the Rav’s story, this ‘Rothschild’ refuses.

I’ve been researching this to the best of my ability, and I can’t find any hint of a real ‘Yaakov of Galuna’, or Galina, or Galona. I have the feeling that the Rav is using his conversations about this ‘hidden tzaddik’ Reb Yaakov, who perhaps never existed, as one of the ways of sweetening the way all those morally corrupt billionaires are controlling everything from behind the scenes.

UPDATE: J., a reader, sent me this (thanks, J.!):

The Rav who blessed Reb Amschil zatsal is Rabbi Tzvi Hirsh Halevi Horowitz zatsal (father of Rabbi Pinchas Horowitz zatsal)

====

It’s amazing, how all this stuff starts to come together.

‘Rabbi Tzvi Hirsh Halevi Horowitz’ – the rav who apparently ‘blessed’ the Rothschilds with wealth – appears to be our very own Rabbi Hirschel Ben Arye Löb Levin / Rabbi Hart Lyon / Rabbi Tzvi Hirsh Berlin / Hirshll Lobell.

====

There’s clearly many more mysteries here – and I can tell you now, that I’m not going to be able to clear them up in this post.

But here’s a few more pieces of pertinent information, that I haven’t yet managed to fit in to this whole hot mess, and that I think are connected, some how.

Maybe, someone out there will have a ‘brainwave’ or dream, or get some inspiration to help move this process of clarification along, who knows?

But here are some more things to consider:

====

1. I found at least one ‘older’ source that stated that Jacob Frank was born to one ‘Hirshll Lobell’ and his wife, Rachel, in Rzeszów.

That’s’ where Tzvi Hirsh Levin Ashkenazi (aka ‘Hirshll Lobell’) was also born. According to the dates given for the births of Jacob Frank and Tzvi Hirsh, however, they would have to be brothers, which would make Jacob Frank the son of ‘Arye Leib’.

Remember that ‘Leibowicz’ just means ‘son of Leib’.

Or, alternatively, the birthdates were ‘adjusted’ – even just by a handful of years – to obscure the father-child link.

Or, alternatively (and really ‘out there’ as a suggestion) – Jacob Frank and Tzvi Hirsh Levin Ashkenazi are actually the same person.

I know that’s far out, but these people excelled at living double lives – ‘big rabbi’ and ‘big merchant’, ‘big rabbi’ and ‘court factor’, ‘big rabbi’ and ‘merchant banker’, ‘orthodox Jew’ and ‘orthodox xtian’, ‘big Sabbatian’ and ‘big critic of Shabtai Tzvi’ – all in the same package.

They changed names more often than you and I change socks, and that happened even more so, when they were travelling between different countries and continents.

====

2. There’s a weird shtreimel thing going on.

I know, you’ll say that ‘everyone in those days in Poland wore a shtriemel’ – but I just don’t see that, in the portraits of other rabbis from that time.

But take a look at this image of ‘Hirschel Levin’ from the Jewish Encyclopaedia, contrasted with apparently the only extant picture available of Jacob Frank:

====

Frank’s followers carried around miniature portraits of both him and his daughter, Eva.

Many people still have portraits of him in their homes or possessions as ‘family heirlooms’ – both Catholics and Jews.

I find it incredible that this pencil sketch, taken from the side so you can’t really make out Frank’s features, is all that remains in the public domain.

Even so – do you think there is a resemblance here?

====

One more thing:

If you go to the Wikipedia sites in German and Polish about Jacob Frank – and Google translate them – you’ll find way more information that’s been hidden away on the English site.

Like for example, clear references to Frank’s father being a rabbi, and lots more missing bits of the story that start to fill out a few more details – but still elusively.

====

I’ll stop there for now.

I have plenty more things to start pinning down, and maybe someone else out there will have some ideas about who Jacob Frank really was.

The reason all this is so important, is because those ‘Frankists / Sabbateans / Crypto Jews’ are still running the show today, and very often, it’s their descendants who are in the driving seat of so many of the Jewish community’s institutions and organisations, both in the diaspora and in Israel, and on both the ‘secular’ and ‘religious’ side of things.

So, if we can pin down who they were then, it’ll start to get way easier to figure out who they are now.

And how they all connect to each other – and to all this ‘Covid 1984 / Great Reset / New World Order’ stuff we are all currently suffering through.

TBC

====

UPDATE:

One of my readers has emailed me a bunch of interesting links, that you may or may not have come across already, which also starts to fill in the picture that most of us don’t want to look at, in terms of Sabbateans / Frankists, and how much they’ve taken over the Jewish world from the top.

I’m just going to cut and paste them here, and then feel free to look at them, or not:

This first one carries on part of the discussion from the video of the former Dutch financier, Ronald Bernard, which is connected to the current financial system that is trying to move us all over to the ‘Great Reset’ via Covid 1984:

Again, I continue to be very moved by the testimony of elite Dutch banker, Ronald Bernard and his insider perspective about the handful of Satanists, who manage to control much of the world through finance, confirming the speculations of many outside investigators over the years.

This post, today intends to take Bernard’s testimony a few steps further.

I had never heard the word “Sabbatean” until last Fall, when I was editing a foundational booklet,
“The Right to Issue” about the Central Banking System, written by William Calder. He’d told me that he’d personally met a few of the top members of the “Committee” who control the Bank of International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, considered to be the Central Bank of Central Banks.
Calder said that ALL members at the top of the hierarchical structure of the Committee were Sabbateans and that they were very preoccupied with their bloodlines. These individuals were not free to marry without the approval of the entire Committee.

https://myemail.constantcontact.com/Rabbi-Marvin-Antelman-on-the-Sabbatean-Frankists.html?soid=1108369064136&aid=xVEKKGFftNE

I just want to stress here that you should keep your scepticism screwed up to maximum level with all this, because while there are Frankist pseudo-Jews at the highest level of this mess, there are also ‘Frankist pseudo-Catholics’ leading the charge here.

There is a lot more to this story than has yet been covered, even by the likes of R’ Marvin Antelman and Barry Chamish.

And it goes way beyond Jacob Frank or Shabtai Tzvi.

This fight between good and evil has been continuing since the creation of the world.

====

I also don’t take responsibility for anything that I myself haven’t carefully checked into, and verified, especially when it comes to claims about other Jews, and other Jewish groups.

We have to be careful, and to protect ourselves and our families from the bad people out there, but that still doesn’t give us carte blanche to believe that everything we read and learn about other Jews is definitely true.

It’s a tightrope – a very difficult tightrope – and BH, God will help us to walk it very carefully, as we carry on this birur process.

====

The ‘William Calder’ referenced above is writing a great deal about the privately owned FED in the US, and the privately-owned ‘central banking’ system across the world, pace:

====

The modern economy, and particularly the whole issue of ‘money’ is a huge part of this story, and we’ll come back to it again, BH.

(In a nutshell, money is not coming with us into the world of Moshiach, so spend it on mitzvot, buy that guitar, give a load of it away to charity now, while you still can get the merit for doing that.)

====

Other links to look at:

This article is where R’ Antelman was summoned to Bet Din in Boston, for suggesting that Yonatan Eibshutz was a Sabbatean in a Hebrew book he wrote called Bechor Satan:

Ultimately, he defended his case.

====

And here is where you can download the two volumes of R Antelman’s book about the Sabbatean / Frankist takeover of Judaism, (which I haven’t yet read, but plan to soon.)

====

And lastly, there’s also a very interesting discussion going on over on the Israel Truth Times website, HERE:

There appears to be a Sabbatean / Frankist Jew heading up the Pfizer corporation, who is good friends with our very own Netanyahu.

You’ll recall that Pfizer is currently flooding Israel with it’s Covid ‘vaccine’, and around 800,000 poor people in this country have already had it.

That’s why I’m trying to get to the bottom of this, and to figure out who is really connected to who, and what motivations these people have for doing what they are doing.

There are very big things at stake here.

====

UPDATE 2:

And here is where you can download the PDF copy of Ben Hecht’s book Perfidy, which details how the proto-State of Israel mamash collaborated with Hitler’s regime, particular in relation to preventing the Jews left in Hungary from making it to Israel, and being saved from the gas chambers:

http://aaargh.vho.org/fran/livres6/perfidy.pdf

So much of this has been hiding in plain view for almost a century.

We just didn’t want to believe it.
