Off the back of the last post, I thought I’d take a closer look at the Pardes Institute.

***UPDATES***

First, you can see the previous post here:

Modern Orthodox or ‘Frum-Reform’?

Then, this is part of the exchange I started to have with one of the commentators off the bottom of that post, where I got told:

Neither Y. Smith nor Pardes identify as Orthodox. The Independent (UK paper) referred to Smith as “ex-Orthodox” and Smith’s own definition of “Authentic Jewish Learning” has nothing about committment to tradition or halacha, the שלשה עשר עיקרים or even God for that matter.

If you read Pardes’ mission statement, you won’t find anything Orthodox there.

Neither Pardes nor Smith make any pretense of identifying as Orthodox- whether modern or “open”.

====

I went back to say this:

It’s interesting when this ‘ex-orthodoxy’ occurred.

This comes from Pardes history page:

“The institute, which he gave the name Pardes—suggestive of the mystery, multifacetedness, and fruitfulness of Torah—opened its doors in the fall of 1972 with a student body of 25.

Among the original teachers were Adin Steinsaltz, David Hartman, and Eliezer Schweid, with teaching assistants who included Menahem Froman and Dov Berkovits. (Click here for a full description of the original faculty). Swirsky directed the Institute in 1972 and 1973 and Berkovits from then until 1977 (See video below). Rabbi Levi Lauer directed Pardes from 1977 to 1994 and Rabbi Danny Landes assumed the position in 1995.

==

Last I heard, Adin Steinsaltz was ‘orthodox’.

Here’s a snippet about David Hartmann, another founding faculty member from Wikipedia:

“David Hartman…attended Yeshiva Chaim Berlin and the Lubavitch Yeshiva, after which he spent time learning in Lakewood Yeshiva. In 1953, having studied under Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik, he received his rabbinical ordination from Yeshiva University in New York.”

Sounds pretty ‘orthodox’ to me..

Here’s the Wiki snippet on Menachem Froman:

“Rabbi Menachem Froman was an Israeli Orthodox rabbi, and a peacemaker and negotiator with close ties to Palestinian religious leaders. A founding member of Gush Emunim, he served as the chief rabbi of Tekoa in the West Bank.”

==

My commentator came back with this:

Some of the faculty [of Pardes] may be Orthodox, but the institution isn’t.

I find it a bit of a strain to consider Hartman in the years after Lakewood & YU, Orthodox.

Hartman is on the record that he was willing to marry a כהן to a גיורת. The flexibility he sought in halacha went beyond finding leniencies that are already part of legitimate halachic process. We’re not talking about a mistaken approach to halacha in which leniencies are applied inappropriately. We’re talking about discarding halacha on philosophic grounds, not on mistaken halachic grounds.

Off the record, I’ve heard that Hartman told a couple that they could ignore a certain הלכה (which modesty prevents me from specifying) based on their “feelings”.

So no, Hartman wasn’t Orthodox.

====

Before we dive back in to who and what is really funding Pardes – and other institutions pushing the same sort of ‘ortho-fem’ / LGBT123-whatever agenda in the orthodox world – let’s try to unpick exactly what is going on here, as encapsulated by this email exchange.

Practically speaking, tachlis, OF COURSE people like David Hartmann aren’t ‘orthodox’.

Practically speaking, they are FRUM-REFORM.

That is how these people – and their institutions – continue to insinuate all their Reform / Conservative tumah into the orthodox world, by pretending like ‘orthodox people who really fear God also think like this’.

When clearly, they don’t.

====

A huge, blinking, red flag about who is really God-fearing in all this (aside from the obvious stuff, like not pushing radical ‘trans’ agendas and faculty members and writers, and ‘ortho-fem rabbas’ down their communities’ throats) is the interfaith stuff.

I’m in the process of unpicking just how ‘pagan’ xtianity really and truly is, but let’s be clear that any ‘orthodox rabbi’ who is happily peddling all the interfaith stuff is FRUM-REFORM, however ‘orthodox’ they may externally pretend to be.

We’ll probably return to this topic in another post, but for now, let’s get back to PARDES, because after the exchange above, I went to find out more about it’s original faculty, and how people like me could have got the idea that the institution is connected to orthodox Judaism.

====

On the History page of PARDES HERE, they actually link to a full description of the people who made up the original faculty, back in 1972.

Here are some screenshots:

As I scrolled through the list, I was struck by just how many of these original ‘Pardes’ people either had semicha from Yeshiva University, or had learned there, and again the explicit links with the Soloveitchik family.

I was also struck by the links to the Mercaz HaRav yeshiva and Bnei Akiva movements that propound the philosophy of Rav Kook, the revered founder of the ‘Dati Leumi’ school of thought in the State of Israel.

And then, there was the connection to Lubavitch, too, in a couple of places, but not least, in the person of R’ Adin Steinsaltz.

Nearly all of the faculty were ‘orthodox rabbis’ with semicha from orthodox yeshivas – and this was back in 1972, when not so many people had semicha, still.

====

 

 

You can read more about Adin Steinsaltz on Wikipedia, HERE.

What struck me – apart from the passage that I’ll bring below – was just how many honors and rewards Steinsaltz recieved from the State of Israel for his work.

That is always, ALWAYS, another huge red flag that something is not quite right here, because Sabbatean-Frankists who hate the Torah typically don’t go out of their way to honor and financially reward genuinely God-fearing orthodox rabbis.

That’s just the way it is.

Snippet:

Publication of the Steinsaltz Hebrew translation of the Talmud in the 1960s received endorsements from prominent rabbis including Moshe Feinstein and Ovadia Yosef.

However, in 1989, when the English version appeared, Steinsaltz faced a fierce backlash from many leading rabbis in Israel such as Elazar ShachYosef Shalom EliashivEliezer WaldenbergNissim KarelitzChaim Pinchas Scheinberg and Shmuel Wosner who harshly condemned his work and other publications.

Branding him a heretic, Shach was at the forefront of a campaign which banned all his works, believing that his literary and psychological explanations of biblical characters and events rendered them heretical. He also slated his translation of the Talmud, describing it as being written in the style of a secular book causing “any trace of holiness and faith to vanish.”

Waldenberg wrote that he was shocked to see the way in which Steinsaltz described the Patriarchs and Talmudic sages, writing that the works had the power to “poison the souls” of those who read them….

For his part, Steinsaltz countered that much of the criticism he faced was rooted in opposition to the Chabad-Lubavitch community he was affiliated with.

====

So, we have to ask the hard question:

Were the people involved with PARDES ‘FRUM REFORM’ right from the start, and part of a wider agenda to ‘poison orthodox Judaism’ the same way Moses Mendelsson operated to poison the Jewish community 250 years earlier?

Or did the organisation genuinely start of ‘orthodox’, and then slide ever more into the abyss of ‘FRUM REFORM’-ness?

Let’s see if we can figure this out, a little more.

====

Back on the PARDES website, I started poking around a little more, to see if there was any more info on when PARDES went full-throttle into ‘FRUM-REFORM’ mode.

I got to HERE, where I learnt this about it’s current president,

Rabbi Leon Morris is the President of Pardes….

Ordained from Hebrew Union College in 1997 where he was a Wexner Graduate Fellow, he has worked extensively with the Jewish community of India, beginning in 1990 when he served as a Jewish Service Corps volunteer for the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee. 

====

Ah, Les Wexner, Jeffrey Epstein’s best friend, and funder of kollels at Yeshiva University.

How could we forget about him?

On another page HERE, I discovered that the Chair of the PARDES board in Israel, Morlie Levin, is also linked to Wexner, snippet:

Morlie was the CEO of NEXT, the alumni division of the Birthright Israel Foundation, and before that served as the National Executive Director of Hadassah…..She was a Wexner Heritage Fellow, a founding Board member of the Jewish People Policy Institute, and a former member of the boards of the Jewish Women’s Archive and the Jewish New Teacher Project.

====

In case you think that link to Wexner is an accident, I went to the PARDES fundraising page HERE, and learned this, about the organisation:

====

512 ‘ordained rabbis across denominations’ – presumably including orthodox! EEK!!!

More than 400 teachers and heads of Jewish day schools – presumably including some orthodox ones?!?!? EEK!

And take a look at the red box, where we learn that no less than 151 people associated with PARDES are ‘Wexner Graduate Fellows’, and a further 180 are ‘Dorot Fellows’.

====

I didn’t know what a ‘Dorot Fellow’ was, so I found their website HERE, and then found what I was really after on the ‘influencewatch.org’ website HERE.

Snippet:

DOROT FELLOWSHIP

The Dorot Foundation’s highest-profile program is its Dorot Fellowship Initiative.

The program funds 12 annual fellowships for American Jews to live and study in Israel. It is operated in conjunction with the left-wing New Israel Fund, but claims it accepts fellows from a wide range of political beliefs.

====

Here’s some other ‘Dorot Fellows’ you might have heard of:

  • Jodi KantorNew York Times editor, correspondent on the 2008 Obama campaign, and author of The Obamas. Kantor shared a Pulitzer Prize in 2018 for her story with Megan Twohey that reported sexual harassment and abuse allegations against producer Harvey Weinstein, which is credited with helping launch the “#MeToo” movement.
  • Eric J. Stern: Former co-chair of Obama Pride and National LGBT Leadership Council for Obama 2008 campaign and former director of LGBT Outreach for the Democratic National Committee.
  • Bari Weiss, former opinion page staff editor and writer at the New York Times.

====

Here’s another snippet about the Dorot Foundation, that you may find interesting:

Left-of-Center Jewish Grantmaking

ISRAEL

The Dorot Foundation actively supports left-wing organizations involved in Israeli politics and policy. It largely supports groups espousing a “two-state” solution, and it does not support groups active in the “Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions” movement. Its grant recipients include:

====

These are the people helping to fund and shape places like PARDES, with is 400+ teachers and headteachers in Jewish day schools, and it’s 512 ‘rabbis’, across all denominations.

And now, they are trying to raise $36 million to build a new, massive campus in Talpiot, to infiltrate even more of their tumah into the Jewish world, and brainwash even more ‘educators’ – and our children – with their anti-Torah, destructive, immoral values.

And all the while banging the drum about what a great beit hamidrash they’ve got, and what amazing ‘Torah learning’ is going on there.

Sigh.

====

Seriously, no-one without an agenda is going to be funding places like PARDES.

And I wonder if all those ‘orthodox Jews’ who work for PARDES, and who learn at PARDES actually even know about PARDES tight links with Reform-pushing anti-Torah organisations like Dorot and the Wexner Foundation?

Because if they did, surely they’d leave in their droves….?

====

Let’s just finish up by taking a look at another ‘orthodox’ institution in Jerusalem that is pushing ortho-fem poisonous ideas, big-time.

I am talking about MATAN.

Once I realised that all these places, all these people, are connected behind the scenes, in myriad ways, I decided to take another look at MATAN.

First, here’s a snippet from their ABOUT page HERE:

Matan has been at the cutting edge of Torah learning for women since it was established in 1988….

Matan is changing the conversation in Israel about women and Judaism.  We are empowering our students with the knowledge, tools and the self-confidence to become teachers, spiritual guides, leaders, role models and change agents in Jewish communities throughout Israel.

Matan has an open and nuanced approach to Torah studies. 

====

All the same weasel words we’ve sadly got so used to seeing.

So, who gave MATAN it’s biggest financial push?

None other than IRA RENNERT – the guy I wrote a whole long megillah around on the old blog, about how he was funding YESHIVA UNIVERSITY and the NETIV ARYEH yeshiva in the Old City, which has a lot of weird links to a lot of influential people.

Here’s the screenshot from MATAN:

====

In case you didn’t know, junk bond king Ira Rennert was one of ‘Milken’s Monsters’, and even today, he is still embroiled in a whole bunch of stuff that frankly stinks.

Here’s a snippet from his Wikipedia page – and then let’s circle back around, to see how this all connects to the ‘ortho-fems’ and MATAN.

Rennert is married to Ingeborg Hanna Rennert, a former airline ticket agent who is a convert to Judaism. She serves as the Director of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Inc….

Rennert and his wife Ingeborg have made many charitable donations to various organizations.

They donated $5 million to establish the Wiesel Center at Boston University and $250,000 to the Lincoln Center. They also gave over $1 million to the World Trade Center Memorial and established the Rennert Entrepreneurial Institute of Sy Syms School of Business at Yeshiva University

 They also established the Ira Leon Rennert Professor of Entrepreneurial Finance at New York University and founded the Ingeborg Rennert Center for Jerusalem Studies at Bar-Ilan University.

==

The Rennerts also helped to fund the construction of The Western Wall Heritage Foundation in Jerusalem (the visitor’s center is called The Ingeborg and Ira Leon Rennert Hall of Light).

Rennert’s wife and children are named as the donors of The Jonas Mendel (Yonah Menachem Ben Mendel) Rennert Memorial Chapel at the Center for Jewish History. The Rennerts are known to have donated to Rabbi Aharon Bina‘s new yeshiva in Israel, Yeshivat Netiv Aryeh, and are additionally honored with a plaque as well as their family upon entrance into the building. They also donated hundreds of Torah scrolls to communities in Israel…

====

Can you guess who founded MATAN?

Aharon Bina’s wife, “Rabbanit Malke Bina.”

Snippet from Wikipedia:

After meeting her husband, Rabbi Aharon Bina and moving to America, Bina completed a Masters program in Bible and History at Revel at Yeshiva University in 1972….

Bina is on the Advisory Council of JOFA, the Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance, a grassroots non-profit organization established in 1997 to educate and advocate for women’s increased participation in Orthodox Jewish life and to create a community for women and men dedicated to such change….

====

If you go to the Wayback machine HERE, you’ll find a whole interview that Malke Bina did for the JOFA newsletter, back in 2006.

Here’s a screenshot:

====

And if you go HERE, to the Frumfollies website, you’ll find a series of articles about some very serious moral issues at the Netiv Aryeh yeshiva.

(And there’s also a specific website about the abuse that was happening at that yeshiva, HERE.)

In the comments section of the Frum Follies website HERE, you find a link to this enlightening article:

Epstein, Wexner, and Our Communal Reckoning with Dirty Money

That ‘communal reckoning’ got paused when Epstein was ‘suicided’ a few weeks after his arrest back in July 2019.

But something tells me, it’s coming around again.

The article in question focuses in on a co-ed ‘yeshiva’ in NYC that was run by more Wexner fellows, and that got more Wexner cash – like PARDES and Yeshiva U, called ‘Mechon Hadar’.

Read this, for more information:

How is Mechon Hadar different than the Pardes Institute?

====

So, massive hashgacha pratis once again at work here.

The current story on the blog I linked to above on Epstein and Wexner’s dirty money is THIS:

====

You can read that statement HERE– and understand more of what’s going on HERE – if you really feel the need.

Long story short – the ortho fem Empress has no clothes!

I’m eagerly waiting for the statement from MATAN’s Malke Bina, decrying the terrible atmosphere of bullying and sexual harassment that has engulfed JOFA over the last few years – that has been knowingly and deliberately covered up.

(Something tells me, I’ll be waiting a very long time….)

====

All these organisations taking the ‘dirty money’ of Wexner, and the rest of the Sabbatean-Frankists intent on ‘shattering orthodoxy’ from within…

They all talk a good game about morals and equality and ‘Torah lishma’ – but really?

They are just massive hypocrites.

They aren’t pushing for ‘equality’ and ‘women’s rights’, what they are pushing for is anything their Sabbatean-Frankist paymasters tell them to push for, in order to introduce more tumah into our homes, schools and communities.

And it’s time we stood up for ourselves and our families, and told them that.

====

***UPDATE***

I got sent one of the posters for that Women’s Daf Yomi Siyum, from January 2020, that was organised by something called Hadran – click to get to their website.

Hadran is founded by one ‘Rabbanit Michelle Farber‘ (and you can see more of their ortho-fem movers and shakers HERE – there’s a lot of overlap with Pardes and MATAN. Of course.)

Michelle Farber has her own Wikipedia page HERE, where you learn that:

Farber co-founded Hadran, an organization to promote Talmud study by women.

She is married to Rabbi Seth Farber, founder and director of the Jewish life advocacy organization, ITIM

====

Seth Farber runs another Frankist-funded Trojan Horse in the orthodox community, called ITIM.

Here’s a snippet from the Wikipedia page:

ITIM has been active in advocating the reform of Israeli laws governing conversion to Judaism.

In Israel, the Orthodox Rabbinate controls the recognition of conversions of Judaism; the Rabbinate does not recognize the validity of Conservative or Reform conversions, and in some cases has also refused to accept Orthodox conversions made by rabbis abroad.

ITIM has also challenged practices of the Chief Rabbinate in adding individuals to a marriage blacklist, which would “prevent them, their children and their maternal relatives from ever marrying in Israel.

====

If you go to ITIM’s ‘Supporters’ page HERE, you’ll find the usual mix of anti-Torah, Reform-pushing ‘Jewish Federations’ and donors, including many we’ve covered here already on the blog like the Russell Berrie Foundation; Avi Chai, and Charles and Lynn Schusterman, to name but a few:

====

The ‘shattering orthodoxy’ from within continues apace!

ITIM is at the forefront of the battle over conversions in Israel.

Yet again, we see ‘FRUM REFORM’ people being presented as ‘modern orthodox’, to persuade the rest of us that ‘orthodox people really do have these opinions too, you know….)

When they don’t at all.

What a massive CO-IN-CID-ENCE that Seth Farber’s wife is the one that founded Hadran, to make more inroads for these Reform-funded, pseudo-ortho-fems.

Hopefully, you are really starting to see how all this works, and who is really funding all these ortho-fems and ‘moderate modern orthodox’ people who are challenging Torah and halachot at the coal face.

And we should all flee from these organisations, and their anti-Torah agenda, like a bowshot.

====

Ehud Barak and Jonathan Pollard are back in the headlines at the moment.

Here’s a couple of interesting things that a reader sent me links to, and then that segues into something even more interesting, in a moment.

First THIS (Google translated from French):

====

The original investigators opened the case against Pollard because he was caught stealing classified information, and they had no idea he was a Jew spying for Israel. He never told his colleagues at work he was Jewish, and the investigators didn’t have time to review his file before arresting him for spying – they believed he was working for Russia or China.

They also state they were shocked by the severity of his sentence.

In light of what’s going on with Chaim Walder, we’re starting to see the totally OTT ‘punishment’ the Frankist-Freemasons are capable of meting out to people who mess up their plans….

====

Now, take a look at THIS, also Google translated from French:

====

It’s a report from Israeli TV-propaganda Kan 13, who interviewed Rafi Eitan, Pollard’s handler, before he died, and was told that Ehud Barak was the man who decided to keep Pollard spying, even though Eitan knew they net was closing in on him.

====

Watch Ehud Barak wiggling around, in the Tweet above.

His ability to brazenly lie appears to be waning with age…

Barak was the head of Israeli intelligence organisation Aman, aka the infamous ‘Unit 8200’, at the time he decided to keep Pollard in his role.

Here’s a snippet about Unit 8200 from Wikipedia:

“Unit 8200” is the largest unit in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), which has several thousand military personnel in its composition. In terms of the functions it performs, it is comparable to The US National Security Agency

Administratively, it is a division of the “Directorate of Military Intelligence”, which is part of the “Military Intelligence Service” (AMAN). Its commander has the rank of Brigadier general, and his name is kept secret.

An integral part of the “8200 Unit” is the “Electronic Intelligence Base, located in the Negev near Kibbutz Urim 30 km from the city Beersheba.

====

In other words, Unit 8200 is the ‘brains’ behind all the AI cameras, all the 5…G, all the track and trace, all the surveillance tech that has been flourishing in Israel, and all over the world, since ‘Covid 19’ began.

Take a breath, and remember that these Graphene Oxide shots contain nanotech that create a wireless network inside the body, that then connect up to emit a traceable bluetooth ‘MAC’ code.

====

Now, remember this:

====

Recall that Jeffrey Epstein was accused of ‘spying for the State of Israel’, and was also funding a whole bunch of weird eugenics projects, and eugenics-pushing scientists, including George Church.

Here is George Church appearing in a video with Ido Bachelet, to discuss their new ‘cell-targeted, payload-delivering DNA nanorobot‘ technology:

====

HERE is what Ido Bachelet, the inventor of the ‘DNA Origami’ nanotech, together with Jeffrey Epstein-funded eugenicist George Church is now up to:

====

Meanwhile, HERE is what Ehud Barak – Jeffrey Epstein pal, former head of Unit 8200, and the Prime Minister who tried to give away Jerusalem back in 2000 – is now up to:

====

Well, who would have believed it?

There’s another ‘Ehud’ in the picture, another former head of ‘Unit 8200’, busy trying to ‘track and trace’ every single person on the planet, electronically, and that guy has ‘SCHNEORSON‘ as a surname….

====

Hands up, who else is creeped-out by the photo above?

Here’s a bit more about him, for Cyclowiki (Google translated from Hebrew):

====

His name pops up on the Richard Silverstein blog HERE.

My husband is advising me not to quote what he says on my blog, but I recommend you take a look for yourselves.

====

Let’s just return to Paragon, to close.

Here’s a more updated piece from Forbes, about ‘Ehud & Ehud’s’ latest spying venture:

Snippet:

Paragon’s product will also likely get spyware critics and surveillance experts alike rubbernecking: It claims to give police the power to remotely break into encrypted instant messaging communications, whether that’s WhatsApp, Signal, Facebook Messenger or Gmail, the industry sources said. One other spyware industry executive said it also promises to get longer-lasting access to a device, even when it’s rebooted. 

====

That article then makes some deserved comparisons between what ‘Paragon’ is up to, and the horrible NSO group, that created the scandal-ridden Pegasus spying software.

That scandal is still going, and even seems to be growing.

Here’s a couple of recent headlines from Ha’aretz:

And THIS, from today:

====

If you go HERE, you’ll find a whole slew of recent headlines on Ha’aretz talking about a whole bunch of dramatic human rights abuses the Israeli government and police have been involved with, via Pegasus and NSO.

And now, we have ‘Ehud and Ehud’s’ Paragon taking over where Pegasus left off.

Or maybe, we have ‘Ehud, Epstein and Church’s’ ‘cell-targeted, payload-delivering DNA nanorobot‘ technology taking over where Pegasus left off.

====

Who knows, really?

But one thing is clear: these networks of former spooks is probably the biggest source of spiritual tumah, human suffering and immorality in the world today.

And it’s probably the main thing that needs to be dismantled, before geula can really unfurl itself, in all its goodness and God’s glory.

And that process seems to be starting now in earnest.

====

 

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

***UPDATES BELOW***

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

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

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

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

So what’s really going on here?

====

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

Here’s the comment:

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

I also agree that there is something fishy going here.

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

One interesting found:

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

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

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

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

====

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

====

Snippet:

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

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

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

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

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

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

WHO RUNS THE ‘ISRAEL RELIGIOUS ACTION CENTER?’

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

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

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

====

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

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

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

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

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

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

====

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

====

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

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

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

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

====

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

Here’s some examples:

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

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

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

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

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

====

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

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

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

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

====

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

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

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

====

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 Fake Torah Against Walder

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

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

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

I contacted Rabbi Neuberger and asked him the following questions:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

יד אפרים על הלכות שחיטה א:א

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

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

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

You can see an English translation here:

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

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

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

==

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

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

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

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

==

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

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

And I looked up the Teshuva of the Rosh.

שות הראש כלל מו סימן א

Back to Eliyahu’s Facebook post.

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

====

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

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

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

====

So how many people ACTUALLY testified?

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

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

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

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

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

Yesterday, I had about a million different pieces of information land in my inbox at once.

That’s a very good sign.

Whereas in the past, it’s often felt like a very lonely job looking for ‘connections’ between cash and corruption, and calling out things that just don’t make sense, now, more and more of my readers are joining that sleuthing effort – and it’s hard to keep up with the eureka! moments.

This is probably going to be a long post again, so get a cup of tea and settle in.

I will break it into chunks, so it’s easier to follow as discrete bits of information.

CHUNK 1: Founder of Hatzalah, Eli Beer, had his Harvard education funded by Klaus Schwab and the World Economic Forum

In case you’re coming late to the party on the World Economic Forum, they are basically the not-so-secret ‘unelected government’ of the NWO who is trying to kill / enslave all the ‘useless eaters‘ with the nanotech Covid shots + 5…G.

Of course, that’s not how they describe it. They like to talk about ‘the 4th Industrial Revolution’, that’s going to combine people with computers.

This is their super-creepy video from 2016.

Go and watch or listen to it again (not shmirat eynayim friendly) – and now understand what they are really saying.

Snippet from Klaus Schwab:

One of the features of the Fourth Industrial Revolution is that it doesn’t change what we are doing. But it changes us.”

====

Those ‘changes’ he’s talking about apparently include sticking self-assembling nanotech into people’s body, that will enable Klaus Schwab to ‘remote control’ us over the Internet of Things….

Fun stuff like that.

====

Now, what does Hatzalah founder Eli Beer have to do with Klaus Schwab and sticking dangerous, immoral, nanotech into everyone, including our small children?

In a just world, the answer should be ‘nothing’.

But we don’t live in that world, currently.

I got this email yesterday, from a reader:

As we know, Hatzalah kicked out volunteers who did not comply with getting vaxxed.

It was heavily publicized that Eli Beer was ill at the beginning of shekerona while he was fundraising in Florida.
Despite recovering, he publically got the vaxx and pushed it hard.
Today, Chananya Weissman shared this page from the WEF. https://www.weforum.org/people/eli-beer
I mean, is anything genuine and real? Did Hatzalah start off with integrity and good intentions and then get hijacked by the Erev Rav, or was it tainted from its inception?
====

A quick look at Eli Beer’s Wikipedia page answers a lot of that question.

Hatzalah started up in the USA way before Eli Beer was out of short pants.
Snippet:
Beer began to work with Hatzalah Jerusalem in 1992. With him as fundraiser and operational coordinator the organization grew and changed its name to Hatzalah Israel reflecting its nationwide scope. Hatzalah Israel acted as an umbrella organization, incorporating many Hatzalah chapters that had been established throughout the country.
====

Then he kind of ‘took over’ the organisation – much as the horrible Meshi-Zahav apparently ‘took over’ ‘the original Zaka – and now, just look at all the freebies and honors Eli Beer has been showered with over recent years!

(Screenshot from that same Wikipedia page):

====

Here’s a snippet of Beer publically grovelling to Klaus Schwab and the World Economic Forum (from HERE):

Recently, as a Schwab Foundation Social Entrepreneur, I had the privilege of attending a Harvard Business School executive education program on non-profit strategy and management….

I am indebted with gratitude to The Schwab Foundation for offering me this opportunity, and for having the foresight to see what a great impact this fantastic course will have on United Hatzalah.

====

It was for sure ‘tremendous foresight’.

Beer has been using his position as ‘head of United Hatzalah’ to continually push propaganda into the Jewish community, to take these dangerous, nanotech shots, that are part of the World Economic Forum’s plans for the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

You see how it all dovetails so nicely?

And don’t think we forgot about the ‘United Hatzalah’ connection to what happened at Meron, where the Active Denial system was switched-on by a spook dressed as a fake Hatzalah guy; and where the fatal ‘attack’ literally happened right up next to the wall of the main Hatzalah HQ in Meron.

Which was inexplicably ‘closed’ on L’ag B’omer, and had all its CCTV cameras disabled, while 45 people suffocated to death.

====

I am indebted with gratitude to The Schwab Foundation for offering me this opportunity, and for having the foresight to see what a great impact this fantastic course will have on United Hatzalah.

====

And the other people and organisations on that big list of Eli Beer’s freebies are also very problematic, for a whole bunch of different reasons.

To take just one: The Conference of European Rabbis put this out, back in December 2020:

Hey, looky here! From 2017:

====

On  my old website, I had a post with a dozen disturbing pictures of leading rabbis from the Conference of European Rabbis hanging out at the Vatican, with the Pope.

Remember, the thesis we’re building up more and more over time is that the Jewish community’s leadership, including in the religious world, got ‘hi-jacked’ 2-400 years ago, by crypto-Jews that spent a century or two living as xtians – and who were more interested in retaining power and making money, than serving the Jewish community they were ‘parachuted back into,’ to control and subvert.

And it’s been that way ever since.

CHUNK 2: YESHIVA UNIVERSITY’S $613 MILLION FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN

This was the next email I got.

Did I know that the infamous Yeshiva University had launched a $613 million fundraising campaign, on December 5, 2021?

NAUSEA ALERT: Watching the following may give you an uncontrollable urge to throw up. (Not shmirat eynayim friendly.)

====

Last I heard, YU had around 2,000 undergraduates, and they aren’t exactly generous, with the salaries they pay their ‘non-elite’ faculty.

They also sold off their medical school for a large sum just two years ago, and have been getting some big, regular cash injections – from a whole bunch of people associated with gun running for the State of Israel, ‘Milken’s Monsters’, and of course, Jeffrey’s Epstein’s best friend, and apparently only client, Les Wexner.

====

I detailed a lot of that information in a series of three posts I put together back in August 2021 – and which I decided to pull together now, in their original form, as a PDF you can download below:

https://www.rivkalevy.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/01/YU-and-Covid-connections-and-corruption.pdf

Here’s the bit I want to focus on in this post:

There is an article put out back in 2004, entitled: RIETS To Pay Tribute to Four Distinguished Roshei Kollel at May 5 Dinner in NYC.

Snippet below:

The event… will begin with Torah presentations at 5 p.m. by the roshei kollel: Rabbi J. David Bleich, Rabbi Michael Rosensweig, Rabbi Hershel Schachter, and Rabbi Mordechai I. Willig….

Rabbi Bleich is rosh kollel of the Rabbi Norman Lamm Kollel Le’Hora’ah and the Ludwig Jesselson Kollel Chaverim and holds the Herbert and Florence Tenzer Chair in Jewish Law and Ethics at RIETS.

Rabbi Rosensweig is rosh kollel of the Israel Henry Beren Institute for Higher Talmudic Studies and holds the Nathan and Perel Schupf Chair in Talmud.

Rabbi Schachter is rosh kollel of the Adina and Marcos D. Katz Kollel and holds the Nathan and Vivian Fink Distinguished Professorial Chair in Talmud at RIETS.

Rabbi Willig is rosh kollel of the Bella and Harry Wexner Kollel Elyon and holds the Rabbi Sol Roth Chair in Talmud and Contemporary Halakhah at RIETS.

====

The ‘Bella and Harry Wexner Kollel’ or R’ Willig is funded by Les Wexner – their son.

This from Wikipedia:

Wexner had a close relationship with Jeffrey Epstein that began in the 1980s and continued until at least 2007.

He was the primary billionaire client of Epstein, a financier that claimed to only work with clients with a net worth of one billion USD or greater.

Epstein became Wexner’s financial manager in 1987. Wexner purchased the New York property, the Herbert N. Straus House, in 1989 and later transferred it to Epstein in the mid-1990s following his marriage to Abigail. 

In July 1991, Wexner granted Epstein power of attorney and also instated him as a trustee on the board of the Wexner Foundation.

====

If you recall from yesterday’s post HERE, we tripped over another connection between Jeffrey Epstein and the scientists who created the ‘DNA origami’ nanotech being found in these Covid shots.

Here’s my screen-record of some of that video again, because you can only see the original if you are logged in on Youtube:

====

One of those scientists is Israeli Ido Bachelet, who went to work for Pfizer in 2015.

And another one of those scientists is geneticist George Church, of Harvard University.

Snippet from HERE:

Church is Professor of Genetics at Harvard Medical School,Professor of Health Sciences and Technology at Harvard and MIT, and a core faculty member at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University.

With Walter Gilbert he developed the first direct genomic sequencing method in 1984, and helped start the Human Genome Project in 1984 while he was a research scientist at newly formed Biogen Inc….

Church does research on synthetic (artificial) biology and is director of the U.S. Department of Energy Center on Bioenergy at Harvard & MIT, and Director of the National Institutes of Health Center of Excellence in Genomic Science at Harvard.

====

Jeffrey Epstein was a big funder of George Church’s research:

Snippet from George Church:

“Tainted money can be used for good.”

That same George Church – who has pronounced ‘eugenicist’ tendencies; and who worked on the ‘secret’ nanotechnology / DNA origami that was covertly put into the Covid 19 shots we are all being ‘forced’ to take – had his ‘secret’ research funded by pedophile spook, Jeffrey Epstein.

====

(BTW, I highlighted the Mount Sinai / Icahn Med School here, another recipient of Epstein’s money, as that links us up to another well-known ‘nanotech vaccine’ pimp in the orthodox Jewish community, who also happens to be a YU alumni, Aaron Glatt.)

Bio from the Jewish Press, HERE:

Rabbi Aaron E. Glatt, MD, FACP, FIDSA, FSHEA, is chairman of the Department of Medicine and hospital epidemiologist at South Nassau Communities Hospital and clinical professor of medicine at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. He is also the associate rabbi of the Young Israel of Woodmere.

Meanwhile, here are some of the ‘rich and powerful’ friends of sex-trafficking, ‘secret scientist paying’, eugenics-obsessed Jeffrey Epstein:

====

Of the four names you see in this screenshot, AT LEAST THREE are known pedophiles.

And one of them, Lesley Wexner, is the guy who paid for the Yeshiva University Kollel of Mordechai Willig.

And Yeshiva University has also been busy pimping this nanotech, Covid 19 ‘vaccine’ – developed with a lot of help from George Church and Ido Bachelet – all over the orthodox Jewish world, the last year and a half.

====

What am I saying, tachlis?

I’m saying that a school the size of YU doesn’t need another $613 million – way more than half a billion dollars!!! – for anything, much.

But what a great way to arrange a huge pay-out, behind the scenes, for all those people in YU who have been working overtime to convince the Jewish community that ‘taking the shots’ is the right thing to do, halachically.

That’s what I’m saying.

====

BTW, in the course of researching YU again, I found myself going through Ari Berman’s Twitter feed, for more leads.

This one stood out to me:

====

As I keep saying, all these ‘senior positions’, all these ‘head honcho roles’ – they are all kept strictly in the family.

If you aren’t connected to ‘the machine’ that is running the Jewish community, on all sides of the divide, in every country, you will never get the ‘lucky breaks’ to get the jobs and positions all these people do.

Over and over and over again, generation after generation.

The link with R’ Moshe Feinstein prompted me to go and look him up on geni, to see if he fits into ‘the machine’, too.

Whaddya know?

He does.

====

====

We’re straight back into ‘mysterious Vilna Gaon land’, where large chunks of the family tree make absolutely no sense; where fathers are inexplicably ‘regurgitated’ as their own grandchildren, and where apparently no-one could remember any mothers’ name for five generations….

Apparently, R’ Moshe Feinstein descends from Avraham Ragoler, who is either the Vilna Gaon’s brother, or his son.

I’ve been trying to unpick that whole mess for a while already, but it appears that particular closet is still hiding its skeletons.

(See HERE, for another version of who ‘Avraham Ragoler / Vilner’ apparently was. There are definitely some big secrets hiding out with this person.)

The point is, that we see that all our modern ‘leaders’ descend from the same family, the same people – on all sides of the divides in the Jewish world.

====

Man, I didn’t even get to the connection between the last Lubavitcher Rebbe, DARPA and HAARP.

I guess I’ll return to that topic soon.

But if you take one thing from this post, it’s to understand that everything that’s going on with these Covid 19 shots leads back to corruption, cash, and ‘elite’ connections that stretch back over centuries.

Anyone who is pimping these shots, especially at this point in time, when so very much evidence is coming out that they are neither ‘safe’ not ‘effective’, is spiritually corrupt, in some way.

====

You want to take the nanotech shots? It’s your life, your responsibility, your problem.

But to try to FORCE this stuff on others, or cajole or manipulate others to subject themselves to this?

That’s when you cross the line.

That’s when everyone needs to start asking what category (or how many categories) you fall into:

  • So arrogant you can’t admit you made a mistake
  • Bribed 
  • Threatened
  • Senile

Keep your eyes open, and continue to do your homework!

Because all the truth is finally starting to come out.

You might also like this article:

“Eliya” Hawila has a very interesting family tree.

If you don’t know who that is – and you want to know – go read THIS. And also, go read the comments, where you’ll see the YWN caught red-handed by readers re-writing the story, to deflect blame off some of the people involved in it.

In a nutshell, there’s a Lebanese Shi’ite guy called ‘Eliya Hawila’ who somehow managed to marry a Sephardi woman in NYC, because he ‘fooled everyone’ that he was a Jew.

But here’s the thing: When you take a look at his family tree, that was posted up on MyHeritage but which has now been ‘disappeared’, here is what you see:

====

If you scroll down to the bottom, you’ll find that one ‘Meir Lansky’ married one ‘Sarah Yakubowsky’ in Poland.

They had a child called ‘Ilana Lansky’ (born in Poland) who married one ‘Habib Levi’, born in Lebanon.

They had a child called Miriam Levi who married one Haim Hawila in Lebanon – who apparently descends from a ‘Yaacob Mizrachi’.

And their son ‘Eliyah Hawila’ is the guy in the story.

==

I don’t know if the family tree is genuine.

But that name ‘Meir Lansky’ caught my eye, so I started digging around a bit more to see what I can turn up about the Jewish community, generally, in Lebanon, and about Meir Lansky in particular.

====

Over on Wikipedia, there is a whole big piece about the history of the Jewish community in Lebanon.

Here’s the snippet that caught my eye:

“The development of the Jewish yishuv in Palestine influenced the Jewish leadership, who usually showed sympathy and active support for Zionism.

The Jewish leadership in Beirut during this time aligned itself ideologically with the American-Based B’nai B’rith organization through its local proxy (Arzei Ha-Levanon Lodge) which was staffed by local community leaders.

The B’nai B’rith lodge in Beirut attracted the social and economic elite… In Beirut, unlike other Jewish communities, most of the community council members were also B’nai B’rith members, hence there existed an overlap between the council and the lodge.”

====

B’nai B’rith lodges grew out of the Frankist-Freemason ‘secret societies’ that we’ve been covering here.

So, I found it pretty interesting that the Jewish movers and shakers in Beirut 1) Actively supported ‘Zionism’, when that wasn’t a fashionable thing for Jewish communities to do, in the Arab world, and b) had a community organisation where the American (Frankist-Freemason) B’nai B’rith was effectively running the whole show.

We’ll get to B’nai B’rith in more detail soon. It’s a big part of this story that hasn’t been covered yet.

But Freemasonry is still a ‘thing’ in Lebanon, even today:

====

For now, take a look at THIS story on the Mega Group, that also came around the Jeffrey Epstein affair.

(BTW, I  have strong suspicions that the author, Whitney Webb, is also a spook. There’s just no way you’d get this amount of quality information ‘out there’, without a big helping hand from intelligence. So as always, do the birur and evaluate everything very carefully.)

Here’s the snippet for now:

[I]n 1983, Ronald Lauder — whose only professional experience at that point was working for his parent’s cosmetics company — was appointed to serve as United States Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for European and NATO Affairs.

Soon after his appointment, he served on the Dinner Tribute Committee for a dinner hosted by the Jewish fraternal and strongly pro-Israel organization B’nai B’rith, the parent organization of the controversial Anti-Defamation League (ADL), in Roy Cohn’s honor. Cohn’s influential father, Albert Cohn, was the long-time president of B’nai B’rith’s powerful New England-New York chapter and Roy Cohn himself was a member of B’nai B’rith’s Banking and Finance Lodge.

The dinner specifically sought to honor Cohn for his pro-Israel advocacy and his efforts to “fortify” Israel’s economy, and its honorary chairmen included media mogul Rupert Murdoch, Donald Trump and then-head of Bear Stearns Alan Greenberg, all of whom are connected to Jeffrey Epstein. 

====

If you go HERE, you’ll find an archived copy of a document called: Organized Crime and the ADL.

You’ll learn a great deal about the Jewish mafia’s links to the State of Israel – mostly all conducted in the name of charidee – and we’ll come back to that another time.

The basic job of the ADL was to cry ‘anti-semitism’ anytime somebody tried to suggest that someone Jewish may have been engaged in illegal or unethical activities.

If this sounds far-fetched, all you have to do is see that this same modus operandi is still occurring today.

And it’s very effective at silencing genuine voices, who are not anti-semites, and who are even sometimes Jews themselves, from speaking up about things that are going on, that are disturbing, within the Jewish community.

What happens when you silence the moderate voices asking legitimate questions, and cover up things that should be exposed and dealt with, is that then the ‘extreme voices’ are the only ones out there, and most of those ‘extreme voices’ do belong to anti-semites.

====

The ADL has been funded by some very ‘interesting’ people down the years.

Some of them – like Meyer Lansky and Moe Dalitz – were known mobsters. If it doesn’t bother you that the ADL gave their “Torch of Liberty” award in 1982 to Dalitz, who was connected to the Purple Gang that murdered at least 500 of their rivals…. well. I don’t know what to tell you. It really bothers me.

Other ADL sponsors include a bunch of ‘Milken’s Monsters’, like Victor Posner, Meshulam Riklis, and naturally, Michael Milken himself.

====

Let’s get back to Meyer Lansky.

So, we now know that the (Frankist-Freemason) B’nai B’rith organisation was very active in the Jewish community of Beirut, Lebanon, where “Eliya Hawila” comes from. We know the B’nai B’rith set up the ADL. We know that the ADL has close ties to Lansky – and other family members.

This is a cached copy of what appears on the Statemaster spook encyclopaedia site, HERE:

Mira Lansky Boland [Meyer Lansky’s grand-daughter] is an intelligence analyst and a political activist.

She studied with Prof. Uri Ra’anan at the elite International Security Studies Program at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University, where one of her classmates was Jonathan Pollard. From there, she went on to the CIA and then the Office of Net Assessment (ONA) at the Pentagon, where she worked under Andrew Marshall. Upon leaving the ONA in 1984, Lansky Boland became the fact-finding director of the Anti-Defamation League‘s Washington, D.C. office.

====

Uhoh.

We just tripped down another massive rabbit hole with this one.

Let’s shelve that said of things, for now, and return to Lebanon.

Because here’s the niggling question I have: is it possible that “Eliya Hawila” actually really IS a Jew after all?

Is it at least possible, that he could have had a great-grandparent called ‘Meir Lansky’? Is there a ‘Lansky-Lebanon’ connection, in the real world?

====

Here’s Meyer Lansky being interviewed for Israeli TV, back in 1971, and clearly lying through his teeth:

Around the 1:27 minute mark, he says:

“They claim I have 50% of Lebanon’s casinos.”

If you apply the ‘opposite’ rule to everything Lansky says in this interview, you’ll come out much closer to the real truth.

According to reported comments from his daughter, Sandy, this is the backstory for why Meyer Lansky fled to Israel, and tried to get citizenship here, prompting the [totally scripted…] interview above:

President Nixon, already angry with Lansky for his support of Kennedy in the election, began to take revenge on the crime boss after Lansky rejected Nixon’s attempt to enter into a casino share in the Bahamas, since at that time only mobsters could be partners with each other.

After one of the FBI agents hinted that a case was being prepared against him, Lansky flew to Israel to escape tax charges in the United States. Then Nixon began threatening Israel that he would cancel the deal on the Phantoms that Israel needed to protect itself from its neighbors in the Middle East, so Prime Minister Golda Meyer finally decided to deport Lansky.

But Lansky himself left Israel to avoid being deported and later went on trial in the United States, but was acquitted of the tax charge.

====

In the meantime, Watergate happened, and Nixon got taken out of the picture, making it much easier for Lansky to get ‘acquitted’.

Here’s one more snippet from Meyer Lansky’s Wikipedia page, and then we’ll leave it here for now:

Lansky is credited with having “controlled” compromising pictures of a s*xual nature featuring former FBI director J. Edgar Hoover with his longtime aide, Clyde Tolson. In his book, Official and Confidential: The Secret Life of J. Edgar Hoover, biographer Anthony Summers cites multiple primary sources regarding Lansky’s use of blackmail to gain influence with politicians, policemen and judges.

One such stage for the acquisition of blackmail materials were orgies held by late attorney and Lansky protégé Roy Cohn and liquor magnate Lewis Rosenstiel, who had lasting ties with the Mafia from his bootleg operations during Prohibition.

The release of FBI files on Lansky revealed extensive monitoring and investigation, which makes it harder to explain why Lansky was not pursued to conviction, unless he successfully evaded it by blackmail. Cohn copied this model of blackmail to control politicians and evade conviction himself.

====

And so, we come full circle.

Roy Cohn was Meyer Lansky’s protege. Roy Cohn, in turn, had had a young protege you may have heard of. His name is Donald Trump.

====

Let’s recall the quote from above, about the ADL links to Roy Cohn, amongst others:

Cohn’s influential father, Albert Cohn, was the long-time president of B’nai B’rith’s powerful New England-New York chapter and Roy Cohn himself was a member of B’nai B’rith’s Banking and Finance Lodge.

The dinner specifically sought to honor Cohn for his pro-Israel advocacy and his efforts to “fortify” Israel’s economy, and its honorary chairmen included media mogul Rupert Murdoch, Donald Trump and then-head of Bear Stearns Alan Greenberg, all of whom are connected to Jeffrey Epstein.

====

We are back to the women and child trafficking.

And don’t forget, Ghislaine Maxwell, daughter of ‘super-spy’ Robert Maxwell is still meant to be behind bars, somewhere, in connection to all this, too.

Sadly, the (Frankist-Freemason) State of Israel has more than one connection to this sordid story.

And hard as I try to escape it, somehow or other, all roads keep leading me back to the same people, the same organisations – and the same underlying thought that something is profoundly ‘wrong’ here, and needs to be dealt with, finally, and fixed.

====

UPDATE:

A lot of Lansky’s mafia money was apparently ‘laundered’ via a Swiss rabbi called Tibor Rosenbaum.

HERE is his Wikipedia page, snippet below:

During The Holocaust, Rosenbaum saved hundreds of Jews while being disguised as a German SS officer, a soldier in the Hungarian Arrow Cross, or as a member of the Hungarian Levente, depending on the situation…

Soon after the establishment of Israel, Mr. Rosenbaum started an organisation called “Helvis Company” to actively promote Israeli‐Swiss trade. A decade later Helvis was alleged to having given kickbacks into a special fund of the National Religious party to obtain contracts from the Ministry of Health in connection with two hospitals near Tel Aviv.

Together with his friend Bernard Cornfeld, Rosenbaum founded the Banque De Credit International Genève in Geneva in the 1959, which went bankrupt in 1976…Rosenbaum originally financed arms purchases for Israel through the bank. For the major organized crime figure Meyer Lansky, who first met Rosenbaum in 1965, the bank also opened a connection to Israel….

According to Richard Gilbride‘s book “Matrix for Assassination: The JFK Conspiracy”, the bank was responsible for handling up to 90% of the Israeli Defense Ministry’s arms purchases.

====

And HERE is a description of the second part of that story (Google translated from Russian):

In 1961, Lansky created a company there [in the Bahamas] that secured a monopoly in the construction and operation of gambling dens. They delivered casino customers by plane, while millions of dollars in profits were immediately flown to Switzerland, Geneva, and more specifically to the bank’s headquarters, no other than an “International Loan” run by a special Jew, Tibor Rosenbaum.”

Jacques Derogy wrote about him: “With a round face and a kippah covering his baldness, Tibor Rosenbaum performed the feat of faithfully playing the role of an Orthodox rabbi and treasurer of the American mafia. It was he who received “suitcases full of dollars for safekeeping and placed them in special cells codenamed Lansky, “Bear”, and, through trust companies, reinvested in the United States and elsewhere in completely legal businesses, including real estate.”

FYI, Jacques Derogy was a French investigative journalist, who definitely had at least a Jewish father.

====

JUST SO WE ARE CLEAR, this is where those ‘laundered funds’ were coming from, snippet from the Encyclopedia Britannica entry on Meyer Lansky:

[Lansky] was involved in narcotics smuggling, pornographyprostitution, labour racketeering, and extortion and had control of such legitimate enterprises as hotels, golf courses, and a meatpacking plant. Monies were secreted in Swiss banks. By 1970 his total holdings were estimated at $300 million.

There is a lot to unpick here…as always.

It’s interesting, that ‘Murder Inc’ seems to have cottoned on to the idea of using externally orthodox-Jewish individuals and organisations to launder their cash a long time ago.

For some strange reason, all those charidee foundations of secular Jews inexplicably investing in orthodox institutions in the US and Israel and elsewhere are popping up in my mind now.

I’m sure that’s just a CO-IN-CI-DE-NCE.
