With a title like that, anything is possible…

So, over Shabbat, I read through THIS part of the 6th Lubavitcher Rebbe’s memoirs in English.

It’s a second edition, and many facts and details have been changed and / or omitted from the original, so I made some notes to try to track down who the 6th Lubavitcher Rebbe, R’ Yosef Yitzhak Shneerson, was really talking about.

To keep the bat as straight as possible, I’m first just going to quote a few of the things that took my eye.

And then, we’ll concentrate on Mad Martin, the Belarussian ‘Dracula’.

Here we go.

====

From page 25, part of a discussion about an organised underground group of ‘kabbalist mystics’ who are spreading out across Eastern Europe, to help people ‘reach a higher spiritual levell:

“And don’t imagine…that each of these mystics is merely following his own particular plan. I can tell you positively that every one of them has had his ‘mission’ assigned to him and has been told in which area is his ‘sphere of influence’. Taken collectively, they all form part or a large, comprehensive whole, with its inspiration emanating from their chief.

“This particular society of people,” continued Wolf, in a way that showed he knew all there was to know about it, and even as if he were also one of them, “is quite an old one. It was first established by the tzaddik, the gaon, Rabbi Eliyahu Baal Shem of Wurms, Germany. Thus the movement is about one hundred and ten years old.

“Rabbi Eliyahu Baal Shem established this society upon the request of a certain Kabbalist, whose identity is unknown to this day. We are told that this Kabbalist requested that chosen gaonim and tzaddikim, who would be prepared to dedicate their whole lives to this sacred work, should be sent out among the poor, simple, uneducated and unawakened Jews, and make them aware of their Creator, and of the spiritual values in life.

“It was about the year 5381 (1621) or 5383 (1623) that this society was established by Rabbi Eliyahu Baal Shem, and ever since, thousands and thousands of ordinary Jews have been brought back to the service of G-d!”

====

Some historical context, to help you connect the dots for yourself:

Rabbi Israel ben Sarah, the Baal Shem Tov (BESHT) was only born in 1698.

This ‘particular society of people’, apparently started up by ‘Rabbi Eliyahu Baal Shem’ was operating for 75 years before the BESHT was even alive.

Even more interestingly, the standard dates given for ‘Shabtai Tzvi’ say he was born in 1626 – three years before this ‘particular society of people’ apparently started to operate across Jewish Eastern Europe.

So, who exactly were this ‘particular society of people’, and where did their teachings really come from?

====

Next, I tried to pin down who ‘Eliyahu Baal Shem of Wurms’ actually is, in real life.

In various places, he’s described as the ‘grandfather’ or sometimes the ‘great-grandfather’ of none other than the Chacham Tzvi.

While I’m trying to sort out which version is correct (which looks like it’s going to be a pretty long job…) I did manage to find ‘Eliyahu Baal Shem of Wurms’ in real life.

If you go to Wikipedia, HERE, you’ll find an entry for one ‘Eliezer Loans’.

Here’s a snippet:

(Note: ‘Virmyze’ is another spelling of ‘Wurms’)

Elijah ben Moses Ashkenazi Loans also known as Elijah Ba’al Shem of Virmyze (1555 – July 1636) was a German rabbi and Kabbalist.

He was born in Frankfurt-am-Main. He belonged to the family of Rashi, on his mother’s side was the grandson of Johanan Luria, and on his father’s of Josel of Rosheim. After having studied in his native city under the direction of Jacob Ginzburg and Akiba Frankfort, Loans went to Cracow, where he attended the lectures of Menahem Mendel. While there he prepared for publication the “Darke Mosheh” of Moses Isserles. At the beginning of the seventeenth century Loans was called to the rabbinate of Fulda, which he left in 1612, occupying successively the rabbinates of Hanau, Friedberg (1620), and Worms (1630), in which last-named city he remained until his death.

Loans was a diligent student of Kabbalah, and for this reason was surnamed “Ba’al Shem.” He was also accomplished in music and calligraphy, and various legends circulated regarding his personality…

Loans also edited the “‘Ammude Shelomoh” of Solomon Luria on the “Semag” (Basel, 1599), and the “Sha’are Dura” of Isaac ben Meïr of Dueren, to which he wrote a preface.

====

But if you go to Wikipedia HERE, you’ll find another ‘mirror image’ profile for ‘Elijah Ba’al Shem of Chełm‘:

Elijah Ba’al Shem (1550 – 1583) was a Polish rabbi and kabbalist who served as chief rabbi of Chełm. One of the most eminent Talmudists of his generation, he is recorded as the first person known by the epithet “Ba’al Shem” having been considered a great saint and believed to have used miraculous powers to create a golem.

Elijah was born to his father Aaron Judah in 1550. About 1565 he entered the yeshiva of Rabbi Solomon Luria of Lublin, and, after receiving his rabbinical ordination, became rabbi of Chełm, a position he would hold for the rest of his life. In 1564, he gathered with other prominent rabbis, including his teacher, to co-sign the halachic rulings which allowed an agunah to remarry.

His great-granddaughter married Rabbi Ephraim ha-Kohen (1616–1678), author of “Sha’ar Efrayim” and grandfather of Rabbi Tzvi Ashkenazi.

====

There’s a few things to notice.

Firstly, ‘Elijah Ba’al Shem of Chelm’ appears to have died pretty young and is recorded as having no gravestone, despite having apparently risen from the dead during his funeral to make a church sink into the ground.

That’s pretty weird, as we Jews venerate our saints, and visit their tombs.

So, it’s at least possible that these two ‘Elijah Baal Shems’ are really one and the same person.

The second thing is the connection between these two Elijahs, and Rabbi Solomon Luria of Lublin, (the MAHARSHAL) who apparently lived between 1510-1573.

At least one of these Elijahs married the MAHARSHAL’s daughter, while another version has the MAHARSHAL marrying Elijah of Chelm’s daughter – which would be quite a feat, considering that even if the Baal Shem of Chelm got married at 13 and immediately had children, his oldest child would only be 10 years old when the MAHARSHAL died.

====

According to the Freidiker Rebbe (page 34), ‘Rabbi Eliyahu Baal Shem’s father was:

“A certain Spanish Jew named Yosef Jospa“, who arrived in Cracow aged 50 years old, either in 5261 (1501) or 5265 (1505), and then married 30 years later, apparently aged 80 (!)

Elijah Loans grandpa is one Josel (Yosef) of Rosheim (1476 – 1554), who according to Wiki,

“Was considered as the most important advocate of the Jews in the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation.”

This Yosel / Yosef styled himself ‘commander-in-chief’ of Germany Jewry, and is a very interesting character.

This subject of who ‘R’ Eliyahu Baal Shem of Wurms’ really was requires a lot more clarification, and we’ll come back to it another time.

====

Because now, I want to leave the Freideriker Rebbe’s ‘Baal Shems’ alone for a bit, and take a look at another strange story.

It starts in Chapter 30 (page 127) of the Freideriker’s memoirs, called ‘Prince Radziville and His Jewish Friend’.

Earlier in the memoirs, the Freideriker explains how a place called ‘Harki’ is the secret central headquarters of these ‘kabbalist mystics’ who are wondering all over Eastern Europe spreading their unidentified creed that predates the Baal Shem Tov’s chassidut by at least a hundred years.

The nearest I can find to a real ‘Harki’ is the city of Kharkiv, in Ukraine, but that apparently only had a Jewish community dating from the 1750s on, which doesn’t ‘fit’ the time frame in the memoirs. Otherwise, I can’t seem to find a real-life ‘Harki’.

Here’s a snippet:

Harki belonged to one of the Polish princes of the Radziwill family. He very rarely showed himself in these parts, spending most of his time in France. His estates just outside Harki were very valuable, including large forests which stretched for miles.

“One of these young noblemen of the Radziville family was named Benedict. He had a good friend in France, named Pierre Louis, who came from an assimilated Jewish family, had no connections with any Jews, and barely knew of his own Jewish origin.

“Benedict married into the princely Russian family Demitrov who owned large estates in Russa, and palaces in Moscow. When he settled on the estates of his wife’s family, he brought his young friend of Jewish descent with him, as they were inseparable.”

====

So, as part of trying to track down this real-life ‘Harki’, I started searching for Radziwill princes with Jewish ‘friends’.

And here’s where the story spirals off into crazy world.

There’s one person, one ‘Radziwill Prince’ who came up, in the right area, at the right time, with Jewish connections.

But he’s mamash not someone you’d want to boast about.

Read on.

====

First, here’s the ‘official’ Polish Wikipedia information about one ‘Martin Nicolai Radziwill’:

(I’ll do a compare and contrast with the English info in a moment, the below is Google translated from Polish, so it sounds a bit clunky).

Well-educated and erudite in his youth, [Martin] engaged in medicine, physics and alchemy in Lithuania [Vilna] After his father died, he inherited numerous estates.

At a young age, he began to betray the symptoms of a mental disorder. He probably inherited it from his father John Santa. Over time, the disease began to drive him crazy. He imprisoned his second wife, along with his sons, for several years in an unfurnished room.

He also founded a harem consisting of abducted or purchased girls and imprisoned captured girls.

He looted and set fire to the surrounding estates, practised robberies on the roads, abducted, imprisoned [and executed] people. 

In his laboratory, he was looking for the Philosopher’s stone. He also took the talmud course and learned Hebrew, surrounded himself exclusively with Jews and observes religious practices with them.

====

Aha!

I thought to myself, when I stumbled over this.

I think I’ve found a possible ‘real life’ candidate for ‘Benedict Radziville’, the good friend of the Jews. Maybe, he’s also connected to the mysterious ‘Abraham ben Abraham’, aka Count Potocki, the ger tzedek of Vilna…

Sure, the ‘mental illness’ and ‘harem’ stuff sounded a little troubling, but I thought perhaps this was some Polish anti-semitism raising its head. I decided to do some more research, to see what I could find.

And that’s when I tripped over reams and reams of stories – all in Belarussian – describing how this Radziwille prince was heavily into practising satanic rituals, and ‘dark’ kabbalah – you know, all the stuff the Sabbean-Sabbatean-Frankist-Freemason nexus is so fond of.

Here’s a translated snippet, from HERE:

====

[Martin Radziwill] had no friends at the Vilna Academy, but when he played the violin, a crowd gathered under the windows of the house. He divided his free time between the library and the dens. Then, according to custom, went to travel around Europe.

Looks like that’s where he got into alchemy. That’s what they called it — Science, with a capital letter. Martin returned to his homeland, locked himself in his estate in Chernavchitsy, in the Brest region. What happened there is comparable to the legends that arose around the castles of Dracula and Gilles de Retz.

Martin Radziwill started mining the Philosopher’s Stone. Clerics, tycoons, and even our Francysk Skaryna became fans of this process. Fortunes flew through the crucible tube, reputations collapsed…

==

Martin’s court alchemist, a certain Grabovsky, helped the prince in every possible way. He introduced him to his aunt, a practicing witch. And gradually, the noble practice of alchemy, which was not disdained even in monasteries, in the laboratories of the Chernavchitsky pan [prince], more and more resembled Satanic practices.

Not just chemical ingredients were used, but fragments of animals and even human corpses.

The prince, who was increasingly losing his mind because of his failures, learned about Kabbalah and wanted to master this powerful knowledge. On his orders, rabbis were brought to Chernavchitsy, who were supposed to teach the prince their wisdom.

====

Long story short….

The guy sounded like a precursor for all the really yucky stuff connected to ritual abuse and murder that I’ve previously covered in posts like THIS.

And this is the guy, the Radziwill Prince, who is hanging out with ‘the Jews’?!?!?

How is that even possible?

That’s when I remembered THIS post, about the ‘Bad Baal Shem‘ of London, Samuel Hayyim Falk (1710-1782) father-in-law of none other than Jacob Frank,

Relevant snippet below:

====

Samuel Falk is living in Podhajce, Poland – known as a hotbed of Sabbateans – while his son-in-law Jacob Frank was born in Korolowka, just 40 kms up the road, also to a Sabbatean family…

Falk is good friends with someone called Moses David of Podhajce, who is a notorious Sabbatean. These two hang out together doing ‘practical kabbalah’ – which we’ve already established is effectively black magic.

Falk then moves from Podhajce to Furth in Germany – which was also known as a hotbed of secret Sabbateans – and from this point on, his reputation as a ‘Baal Shem’ starts to take off.

He shows up in Westphalia claiming to be able to heal the sick, find buried treasure, and to have the secret of how to turn metal into gold.
Falk is writing cabbalistic amulets for the people who flock to be healed by him, which also includes members of the non-Jewish landed gentry, like Count Rantzow.

==

Here’s what Rantzow wrote about him:

“[M]y father frequently received the renowned prince and High Priest [sic] of the Jews, by the name of Hayim Samuel Falk. My father told me that this prince [sic] considers himself to be a scion of the line of King David.”

Falk then starts quoting the New Testament at Count Rantzow, and then Rantzow recounts some of the (black magic…) miracles he’s told about, by another of Falk’s gentrified friends, Baron von Donop…

Donop tells Rantzow how Falk conjured up an ‘angel’ (aka demon…) when he brought him to his estate.

Then, he walked through his gardens, and said: “’I want to make you richer.’

He drew a circle and held in his hand a 30 ft long parchment scroll filled with letters. He prayed in Hebrew, and I immediately saw that a fire issued forth from the ground and rose to a height of 7 or 8 feet.”

Then, Donop continues that the ground had opened by an oak tree, where he could see an enormous quantity of gold by its roots.
Falk does other ‘black magic’ miracles for him, too, like making knives fly through the air, and performing ceremonies where ‘spirits’ suddenly fill empty parchments with writing.

Donop concludes:

“The greater my repugnance for this person, who is so renowned, the greater is my sense of trust in him.”

==

After spending a few years ‘finding gold’ for various members of the landed gentry (and it’s rumored, also the Jesuits) – Falk is charged with witchcraft and sorcery, and is forced to flee Europe before he’s burnt at the stake for being a wizard.

Where does he show up next?

London.

And in London, the Spanish and Portuguese community greet him with open arms, and he quickly gets chummy with expat German banking Jews (and secret Sabbatians….), including Aaron and George Goldschmid, contemporaries of Nathan Mayer Rothschild.

He also maintained close contact with the Chief Rabbi of England:

Rabbi David Tavli (our Rabbi and Teacher David Tavli the son of Shlomo Zalman HaKohen Shiff).”

====

Sigh.

We’ll stop there for now.

Again, the people who have hijacked the Jewish community, and who have thrust themselves into so very many of our leadership positions – for centuries, already – are Erev Rav.

The hypothesis I’m fleshing out here is that they are some sort of anti-Torah ‘Sabean‘ throwback, who have been pretending to be Jews – and xtians and muslims and Druze, and whatever else suits their purposes – for millenia.

These people really are doing so much of what the anti-semites accuse the real Jews of doing.

But they and their beliefs aren’t really ‘Jewish’ at all – and the Jewish community has to start that very painful process of finally identifying, and splitting away from, all this evil in our midst.

Let the truth finally be told.

Let the chips fall where they will.

And let Moshiach come the sweetest, and easiest way possible.

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

Mostly for spiritual reasons, he’s totally right.

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

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

Then last week, I smashed my computer.

It wasn’t an accident.

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

====

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

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

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

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

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

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

====

Today, I finally got a massive breakthrough.

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

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

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

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

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

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

We can discuss it’s implications another time.

====

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

===

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

====

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

Why leave it off?

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

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

====

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

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

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

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

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

====

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

====

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

Well.

You can see the problem.

====

====

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

====

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

====

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

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

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

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

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

====

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

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

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

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

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

====

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

====

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

====

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

====

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

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

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

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

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

====

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

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

====

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

(AKA, the 6th Rebbe of Chabad).

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

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

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

====

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

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

====

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

Like I said, it’s a very small world.

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

====

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

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

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

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

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

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

====

Oo-ah!

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

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

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

====

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

====

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

There is so very much to unpick here.

====

The last thing to share with you – for now! – from the 6th Lubavitcher Rebbe’s memoirs concerns another member of the Batlan – Portugali family, named Binyamin.

He is another son of ‘Baruch Batlan’ (Alter Rebbe G-Grandfather).

Here’s the snippet from the memoirs:

“He was accepted as a rabbi in Grodno, a city famous then for its great scientists. From there, Binyamin’s name became known throughout Poland and Lithuania, as well as in Jewish communities outside these countries.”

====

Here he is, on geni:

====

Binyamin Broda (Portugali’s) second wife is the grand-daughter of Jacob Frank.

Via Frank’s daughter Annie Rosa (Rivka Shoshana) Mayer.

And in turn, she is the mother of Chabad’s Rebbetzin ‘Leah Golda Alecsandrov‘, mother of the Chabad Rebbe number 4.

====

Last thing, for now.

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

I’m not saying that definitely is true.

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

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

So, Israel apparently has a ‘new’ government and a ‘new’ President.

‘Itzhak Eizak’ Herzog got the vote from more than three quarters of the MK’s in our oh-so-corrupt Knesset, including from the ‘religious’ parties.

Now the blinkers are off, it’s clear that he’s the choice ‘from outside’ that got parachuted into the cushy position of ‘President of the State of Israel’, to continue the Frankist-Freemason agenda for this country.

Because, as I keep saying, it doesn’t matter who we really vote for, or who we really get leading us, they will only be allowed to rise to the top and wield real power, if they are part of the ‘machine’ that’s been controlling the Jewish world for centuries, already.

====

All these people are connected to each other, with very deep family and idealogical ties that go back a very long way.

I’m currently wading through more and more of the family trees, and the details that have been deliberately hidden from the public, and the the ‘false personas’ and fake stories that have been created to hide just how incestuous all this really is.

BH, I will have another chunk of Real Jewish History for you a little later today.

====

But in the meantime, I was totally struck by the video up on the Yeshiva World News site, together with the ‘puff piece‘ praising the secular Herzog as the ‘religious world’s choice’ for President.

Here it is, below, almost a full four minutes of Herzog only talking (in English) about his meeting with the late Lubavitch Rebbe, and how important it was for Herzog’s father – who was not a ‘religious’ man – to get the Rebbe’s blessing for his son:

====

I’m just finding it so strange, that 25 years after the Rebbe died, secular politicians in Israel do a whole interview just reminiscing about meeting the Lubavitch Rebbe.

Why?

At least externally, the Chabad community in Israel is not very large, and it’s not like a lot of people are going to run out and ‘vote for him’ just because he met the Rebbe 30 years ago.

So what’s really going on here?

Watch the interview yourselves, see what ‘floats up’ in your own consciousness.

====

And then, if you’re bored, there are a whole bunch of other ‘secular-politicians-falling-over-themselves-to-meet-the-Rebbe’ videos you can watch, too.

Like this one, with Ariel Sharon:

====

Ariel is positively glowing when he speaks about his close relationship with the Rebbe, and all the meetings and yichidus he had with him over the years, starting in 1967.

Ah, Ariel Sharon.

We all remember what a tremendous force for good he was for Israel….

And where all that ‘advice’ and deferment to the Rebbe’s instructions led…

Let’s change the subject.

====

If you want more strange videos of rabidly secular Israeli politicians sucking up to the Rebbe over the years, then the good news is there are a lot to choose from.

But I’ll leave you with this one, of a young Benjamin (Nitay) Netanyahu, ‘getting a blessing’ from the Rebbe (with full text below).

 

====

Here’s a little of what they say (but I highly recommend you watch it yourself, to see how deferential Bibi is towards the Rebbe.)

Rebbe: I had much satisfaction from your first speech.

Bibi: I heard and saw your message.

Rebbe: May you continue in this path. God helps all those who wish to elevate others. How much more so when one begins with himself. Please don’t hold it against me for speaking about this in public.

Bibi: I intend to continue precisely on this path. I’ve heard the Rebbe’s message well.

Rebbe: It is the best path to avoid war, etc. “With tranquility and restfulness shall you be saved.” Blessing and success.

Bibi: I thank you for the opportunities to be helped by you, and to receive the spiritual guidance you provide not just for me, but for all Jews.

Rebbe: I am just starting my work.

Bibi: I know.

Rebbe: You are also just starting your new role.

Bibi: I have come to you at the start and I intend to return to you many times.

Rebbe: You will have to struggle with 119 others in the Knesset. Surely, you won’t be intimidated. Because God is on this side. Blessing and success with God’s mission.

====

Which side is God really on?

Is God really on Netanyahu’s side?

That selfsame Bibi Netanyahu who has been behind the ongoing persecution of Rav Berland over the last 7-8 years, which is continuing right now?

That same guy that sold all the citizens of Israel down the river to Big Pharma, with his ‘secret’ deal with Pfizer to forcibly inject as many of us as possible with the dangerous experimental ‘gene therapy‘ (aka magnetized nanobots that can hack into your brain…)?

That same guy who signed off on the ‘Covid 19 plans’ for Meron this year?

And who then deliberately started a war to try to take the nation’s mind of things, when Meron didn’t exactly go as planned and too many people realised that a mass casualty event had been deliberately organised by the government, to bring the religious public to heel?

That same guy who – I have a sneaking suspicion – will try to launch a war with Iran in the week he has left as PM, just so he can stay in power, and try to stuff all the skeletons back into the exploding cupboard?

====

At this stage, it’s hard – nay, impossible – for me to say that God is on Netanyahu’s side.

And what on earth is ‘the mission’ that the Rebbe apparently sent Netanyahu to do?

Let me put it out to the readers:

Can anyone out there tell me what ‘this mission’ actually is / was?

Because apart from polarising the country; destroying small businesses by the hundreds of thousands; welcoming missionaries of every stripe; indulging in regular ‘wars’ with Gaza that are just for show; locking us all down for a year and destroying our mental health; force vaxxing everything that moved with experimental gene therapies; controlling the press; sending the murderous police after Torah Jews in a myriad different ways; kick-starting massive anti-semitism across the globe; and taking bribes and kick-backs for so many things that we still don’t even know a fraction about –

What other ‘missions’ did Netanyahu actually engage in?

====

Sigh.

What I’m trying to tell you – again – is that the State of Israel is being run by the members of one big, extended family.

We’ve been covering some of those deep family connections between the ‘secular’ political world and the apparently ‘religious’ world here on the blog for the last few months, and I’m getting closer and closer to finally pinning this down.

But in the meantime, go back and read some of these posts, to see how ‘Rivlins’ and ‘Schneersons’ have been interconnected in Lithuania, and then over in Eretz Israel, too, right from the start.

====

Once you know more of what’s really going on, it becomes obvious why Herzog is our new President, and why the first thing he did is put out a video in English stating he was ‘blessed’ by the Lubavitcher Rebbe.

It’s the same people, the same extended family, running the show here, regardless of external appearances and claims of being ‘religious’ or otherwise.

Poor Miriam Peretz.

She may have lost two sons on active duty in the IDF; she may have been the people’s choice – she definitely WAS the public’s choice for President – but she didn’t get a blessing from the Rebbe.

And when all is said and done, that seems to be the only thing that really counts, here.

====

UPDATE:

How do we explain this, from the Arutz 7 website HERE:

Senior Chabad rabbi pleads with Yamina MKs not to join Lapid – Israel National News

Rabbi Yitzhak Yehuda Yaroslavsky, considered the most senior Chabad rabbi in Israel, has sent a letter to the members of the Yamina party, pleading with them to reverse their decision to partner with center and left-wing parties to establish a coalition with Yair Lapid and others.

Yeshiva World News notes that the customary practice of Chabad rabbis is to avoid involvement in politics and that this step is a significant deviation from that quasi-policy.

“I am turning to you, unlike my usual habit, at literally the last moment, and in the lashon of the passuk [as is stated in the Torah] (Parshat Korach 16: 26): ‘Please turn away from the tents of these evil ones and don’t touch anything of theirs lest you die because of their sins,’” Rabbi Yaroslavsky wrote.

“This step poses a great danger to Klal Yisrael [the Jewish People] in all aspects and will be a bechiyahl’dorot [a source of weeping for generations] and it won’t be possible to stop the deterioration of this decision after, G-d forbid, the government is sworn in.

Anyone who thwarts this plan is assured that he will merit [great blessings]; withstanding this challenge will bring infinite blessing to each one of you and your families … You will be engraved with golden letters in the history of the Jewish People as having withstood this great test at a difficult time, and for bringing salvation to the Jewish People.”

====

Chabad didn’t send a letter like that when Yair Lapid and Bennett partnered with Netanyahu, 8 years ago, when Yesh Atid and Likud launched an all-out war on the Torah world in Israel.

So what’s so different this time?

And why are Chabad issuing not-so-veiled death threats like this?

====

UPDATE 2:

More ‘political pressure’ from the ‘apolitical’ Chabad, from Arutz 7:

Australian Chabad tycoon Yosef Gutnick, who in recent years has politically supported Yamina No. 2 Ayelet Shaked, saying that he sees her as the successor of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, wrote an open letter to her that was published in Yisrael Hayom on Monday.

“You and I know each other for many years,” Gutnick wrote. “I always strongly supported you, for your loyal adherence to the values ​​we share – a strong and uncompromising right-wing government – to prevent the establishment of a Palestinian state and not to allow portions of Eretz Yisrael to be given away.”

“Right-wing voters believed and trusted you, but now their votes are being stolen by you and other MKs by joining a government with partners you promised in the past not to sit with under any circumstances.”

“We recognize the right of others to think differently from us but most voters in the last election voted for a right-wing government. The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rav Menachem Mendel Schneerson, always opposed any compromise on the Land of Israel, demanded our commitment to the sheleimus of our Eretz HaKodesh, and warned that such a government is dangerous to the residents of Israel and the Jewish people throughout the world.

“You always expressed great respect for the Rebbe. What changed? Why not go to another election so that your voters don’t feel cheated and can express whether or not they agree with your actions and those of your colleagues? Isn’t that the honest and democratic approach? What are you afraid of?

“Don’t be influenced by those who strive for power at all costs,” Gutnick asserted, in an apparent reference to Naftali Bennett. “In the name of everyone who trusts in you, please don’t take part in this so-called ‘government of change.’ Prevent this disaster, for the sake of the kavod and sheleimus of the Torah, Am Yisrael, and Eretz Yisrael. This is the hour of truth for you and your colleagues, to be sincere and honest representatives.”

====

Yamina MKs are getting a lot of death threats.

And no-one in this country wants a 5th election, just because a failed, corrupt prime minister who sold us out to big business, and big Pharma – repeatedly – can carry on running the country as his own private fiefdom.

There’s a lot more to say here…

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

***Updates below***

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

====

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

Rabbi Edelstein: ‘We do not travel to Meron’

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

====

Snippet below:

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

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

====

So that’s nice and clear, isn’t it.

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

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

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

This is admittedly the Litvish, Lithuanian yeshiva approach…

====

But of course, everyone should be holding by it.

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

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

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

====

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

Relevant snippet below:

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

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

====

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

====

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

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

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

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

====

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

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

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

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

====

Hey, wait a minute.

Where have we heard that name before?

Ah yes, I remember now:

Rabbi Edelstein: ‘We do not travel to Meron’

====

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

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

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

Here’s a few, to get us started.

====

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

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

====

Do you see the problem, here?

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

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

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

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

BH, with God’s help, we’ll get to it.

====

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

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

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

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

What else is going on here, under the surface?

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

TBC

====

UPDATE:

A reader sent me links to the following:

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

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

==

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

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

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

====

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

But we can’t.

And so it is.

====

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

Here’s a longish snippet:

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

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

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

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

==

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

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

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

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

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

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

====

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

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

==

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

TBC

====

UPDATE 2:

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

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

This comes from HERE:

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

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

====

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

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

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

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

Man, it stinks.

====

UPDATE 3:

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

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

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

==

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

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

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

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

Snippet from Wiki:

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

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

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

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

====

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

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

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

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

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

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

====

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

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

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

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

Sigh.

====

UPDATE #4:

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

Take away points:

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

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

====

But here is the really telling stuff:

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

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

(Emphasis mine).

====

This is incredible.

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

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

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

Why aren’t these people being arrested, already?

====

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

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

I understand the principle.

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

Who is he working for?

Who is making these decisions, behind the scenes?

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

====

UPDATE 5:

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

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

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

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

How were so many people ‘trapped’ in Area 41 in Meron, when there are no visible gates?

That question has been exercising me for days now.

But thanks to a couple of my readers, and a lot of siyatta di shmeya, I think I might have the answer.

Read on, to learn how ‘the police’ managed to close down both sides of the ‘Reb Dov Shvil’ exit in Meron.

====

In THIS post, I put up a video that showed some very distressing footage of what was going on at the ‘Area 41’ stairs in Meron after the killer crush had already developed.

(You can see that video for yourself on Youtube HERE, and on Brighteon HERE, if you want to, but from this point on I’m trying to minimize embedding distressing footage into blog posts, unless I really need to.)

You can clearly see police cynically waving people ‘back up the stairs’ – which is initially what I was focussing on.

But then, after I watched it a few times in slow motion, trying to gather more clues, I realised something very strange:

The people at the very front of the crush in ‘Area 41’ are not moving forward, even when being pulled by the police.

But no ‘gate’ is visible, at least in the footage I’ve seen.

So what the heck was going on?

====

This screenshot comes from 1:09 seconds into THIS footage, and it clearly demonstrates the problem:

====

What was really blocking that left-hand exit, the exit out to ‘Area 41’ in Meron?

That question has been bothering me for days.

Two days ago, I was even starting to wonder if there was some ‘invisible forcefield’ going on in Meron, or some other super-hitech-super-secret nefarious ‘crowd control’ technology being tried out on those poor people who got crushed to death.

But then, a reader sent me a link to THIS – it’s a two-and-a-half-hour ‘livestream’ from Israeli TV Channel 11, the night the atrocity happened in Meron.

So yesterday, I girded my loins and started watching it, to see if I could catch more ‘clues’ with hindsight, from stuff that hadn’t yet been covered up.

====

They have a habit on these TV stations of re-running the same bit of tired footage again and again and again in the background, as someone is speaking over it.

So it was, that they kept replaying the same bit of footage of people starting to escape from the crush on the left hand side – Area 41.

And that’s when I started to notice the weird beam.

====

I’m screenshotting the below from that ‘live footage from Channel 11, which you can see HERE.

First, here’s a shot of ‘Area 41’, that shows the bottom of the stairs, and the partial railing on the right-hand side, apparently from earlier on in the evening.

The police are standing roughly where the outer edge of the ‘crush’ was located (on that side. Remember, the exit to ‘Area 42’ was also blocked by a standard double gate.)

====

Next, we have this screenshot, from around the 44 minute mark.

It clearly shows a heavy metal beam being ‘moved out of the way’, across the blocked exit at ‘Area 41’:

====

Let’s zoom in on that ‘mysterious beam’:

====

If you go and look at the live footage (around 44 min mark) you can see this beam being ‘lifted’ up.

Then, a stream of trapped people from the stairs at the left-hand exit (Area 41) start streaming out behind it.

I watched that footage maybe 20 times, before a couple of things suddenly dawned on me:

  1. What is that beam doing there in the first place?

Initially, we were being told that ‘something’ had collapsed, so the brain wasn’t flagging it as weird that a metal beam should apparently be blocking an exit like that.

But now, we know that NOTHING collapsed (more on that in a moment.)

So, why was that beam there in the first place?

====

If you want to tell me that it was holding the roof up, that’s demonstrably not the case.

Play the video, and you’ll see that the beam is way too tall to have been standing erect.

It’s a clear foot above where the roof was, in that corrugated white metal death-trap tunnel, built especially for L’ag B’omer this year, by the police and Ministry of Health.

====

I pressed ‘rewind’ to start watching the clip involving the ‘mysterious beam’ from the beginning.

In this clip, (screenshotted below) you could see the first responders starting to stream to the area.

And there was the mysterious metal beam again, clearly too long to go past the roof.

This time, I could see it had a rope tied to it’s left end, which appears to be looped over one of the heavier metal crossbeams in the police-built ‘tunnel of death’.

====

====

Now, I had even more questions.

Again, what was that beam even doing there, in the first place?

Why did it have a rope tied around one side?

When was that rope tied on to it – and why?

If you’re going to tell me that it was done to get the beam out of the way, then why not move the whole beam out of the way, instead of risking it falling on all those first responders rushing to the scene of the crush?

====

Let’s zoom in on the mysterious beam with the rope attached:

====

I was still looking for clues as to where this ‘mysterious beam’ came from in Area 41.

This screenshot also comes from the Channel 11 ‘livestream footage’, around the 49 minute mark:

====

There were similar metal beams spaced the whole length of the ‘tunnel of death’, leading up to Area 41.

Now, I’m not an engineer – and I’d really appreciate input from someone who is.

But I’m finding it hard to understand the purpose of these particular metal beams.

Also, I went back and scanned all the available footage for ‘Area 41’ near the stairs, and I just couldn’t see any ‘indentation’ where a metal beam would have been resting across that far end of the tunnel of death.

====

But this is what I currently believe to be the best hypothesis of how the exit to ‘Area 41’ got blocked by ‘the police’.

Remember, a few people in Meron – including my daughter – said they heard something ‘collapse’, ahead of the deadly crush?

I think that was the sound of this ‘beam’ being manoeuvred into place by the rope-pulley, or being ‘pulled down’ to create a low barrier that crossed the exit at the bottom of the stairs of ‘Area 41’.

Police where there to stop the first people trying to ‘get around’ it by trying to step over it, or duck under it.

And very quickly – literally within 30 seconds to a minute – enough of a crush built up from behind to literally pin peoples’ legs against the beam – just above knee level – which meant that they simply couldn’t move forward, even though it looks like nothing was blocking them.

This explanation would explain why we were seeing things like this:

====

Remember, the right hand exit, Area 42, was blocked shortly before this, with a standard double-gate, placed a little way down the steps.

So then, the crowd is all automatically going to the left-hand side, Area 41.

If you see the footage from Channel 12, (screenshotted below) you see that just as the Toldos Aharon Rebbe was lighting his bonfire, in the few minutes before 12:41 am, both exits off the bottom of the ‘Reb Dov Shvil’ are open, and the stairs themselves look relatively empty.

====

Immediately after the fire was lit, a large number of people decided to leave via the only open exit the police and Ministry of Health left open – ‘Reb Dov Shvil’.

Between 12:41:41 am and 12:44am, the right hand exit (Area 42) is blocked with a double gate, while the left hand exit (Area 41) is blocked by a ‘fallen beam’.

Then, a bunch of police threaten people to stay put, while the deadly crush very quickly builds up behind them, pinning them next to the ‘fallen beam’ and making it impossible for them to move forward, even when being pulled by the hands.

Eyewitnesses report they were screaming at the police to remove ‘the barriers’, and that their pleas were ignored.

They also report that the police only removed ‘the barriers’ once they’d got permission from their superiors to do so.

====

What were they waiting for?

Why did ‘the police’ go to all that trouble to block the exit with a metal construction beam, that was apparently designed to ‘collapse’ in just the right way,and  just the right place, to instantly create a death-trap-log-jam at the bottom of the ‘Reb Dov Shvil’ stairs?

Which was the ONLY exit out of the crowded Toldos Aharon complex, just above.

I have some potential answers to these questions, too.

BH, in the next blog post we’ll zoom out to the ‘bigger picture’ of what was going in Meron that night.

And then we’ll start to really understand just how much God loves the Jewish people, just how evil our enemies really are, and just how many miracles occurred that night in Meron.

====

The 45 didn’t die for nothing.

They were martyrs for the whole of the Jewish people, hand-picked by Hashem to sweeten the decrees on the nation of Israel, and to finally help us identify and uproot the true evil in our midst.

And now that we’ve cleared up (as best we can…) what was going on at the site of the stairs, we can turn our attention to why ‘the police’ wanted that exit blocked up in the first place, and why they literally thought they were going to get away with murder, that night in Meron.

TBC

====

UPDATE:

A couple of readers just sent me THIS:

They are closing down Meron to visitors for Rosh Chodesh Sivan, as part of their ‘thin end of the wedge’ operation, to start taking more and more of our holy sites out of the picture, and off limits.

It’s a temporary state of affairs, mamash the last few skirmishes of the Sitra Achra against daat and Torah and our True Tzaddikim.

But they won’t win this time.

Just keep praying and working on our bad middot, and wait and see how all this will turn around, BH.

***More important updates below***

UPDATE:

There is a new video with new footage of what happened, that needs careful analysis.

PLEASE GO AND SEE WHAT REALLY HAPPENED, HERE:

====

The timings on the slides below appear to be wrong – the crush built up much faster, and seems to have been caused by 10 policemen and at least one policewoman blocking the exit, with or without gates.

The footage is conveniently ‘cut’ at the crucial part that would show why people suddenly stopped on the stairs.

You can see it for yourself HERE:

https://www.mako.co.il/news-israel/2021_q2/Article-249099ac79d3971026.htm

====

I’d been poring over media accounts for three days, and still couldn’t really understand how this was meant to have happened. So yesterday morning, I grabbed my camera and decided I had to go and see things for myself, to see if that would bring a bit more clarity to the picture.

In this post, I’m going to first bring the cold, hard facts – as much as they are knowable, with so many big parts of the puzzle still missing.

And then maybe in a different post, I’ll tell you more about some of the interesting things that were going on up in Meron, and more of what I heard from some of the people there.

Ready?

Let’s do it.

====

Identifying where the deaths occurred.

I’ve seen so many pictures of stairs next to white sheet metal fencing – that I totally didn’t recognise. So, the first job was to go and actually find the place where the 45 Meron Martyrs were killed al kiddush Hashem.

(More on how that actually happened below, after we get the cold, hard facts set down).

The following stills come from THIS drone footage of Meron, shot on April 30th, 2021.

(I’m working on doing this as a short video, too, if I can figure it out – see the update below.)

====

How 45 people died in Meron, on L’ag B’omer 2021:

====

That’s how it happened.

Now, we can make more sense of the videos I posted up here in previous articles. Let’s explain them clearly, so you really get what happened beyond the shadow of a doubt, and can’t be misled by any more MSM-government-sponsored lies and ‘spin’.

This video below first shows the exit that was blocked.

It also seems to show that one Border Policeman had enough of a neshama to start trying to rip down the metal sheeting right next to the blocked exit, to try to relieve the pressure and give people more space.

But notice other policemen standing at the bottom of the stairs, still holding the crowds back.

====

Next, you see the ‘river’ of visitors coming down the fenced-in path with the metal ramp.

I suspect that fencing was also put up around the sides just for this L’ag B’Omer, but I haven’t been able to confirm that yet.

But you can clearly see from the drone footage, above, that usually this area was all open air.

So why close it in?

====

Next, the video goes to an overhead view, looking down at the stairs from the building above it, where you can see how people have now ‘collapsed’ down the stairs and been crushed to death.

This occurred after the police removed the barriers blocking the exit, which caused hundreds of people to topple down on each other.

You can see one or two ‘regular’ police at this point trying to pull people out of the pile, together with a few first responders.

But all those big, burly ‘Border Police’ guys who were blocking the exit have now left the area.

Why didn’t they stay, to try to rescue more of the people who had been crushed and asphyxiated to death?

====

Now that we’ve pinned this information down, there are more questions to be answered.

According to this eyewitness account, below, two police pulled a double-gate across this exit at approximately 12:30am.

(The audio is very quiet, but if you can listen to what he’s saying, it’s very useful information.)

====

The gate was still in place almost half an hour later, at approximately 1am.

That means that the police let the crush build up on the metal ramp for approaching half an hour before the deaths occurred, without making any public announcement that people should try to find a different exit.

Why?

====

UPDATE:

Menachem Engel, the guy in the video above, contacted me to make it clear that he is not saying and doesn’t know if the gates were still in place at almost 1am. I’m happy to include this information.

And I also want to include this information, from another eye-witness, that was reported in Hebrew HERE,  that the single exit out of the Toldos Aharon complex was blocked by 10 burly policemen, plus at least one policewoman who were pushing people back up the stairs and the ramp, just before the ‘disaster’ (in Hebrew):

https://go.bhol.co.il/31eLuS

====

Google translated snippet:

“[Q]uite a few dozen seconds after we passed the entrance to the path, a lot of policemen and at least one policewoman came to the entrance to the path and blocked the exit.

Anyone who knows this area at the time of L’ag B’Omer, this year and every year knows that police officers do not walk around in the mehadrin area at all [i.e. the area cordoned off for just men]… And certainly there are no policewomen in the whole area.

Suddenly at least 10 policemen appeared in one shot?!?!

They were at the ‘disaster’ long before the first responders and Magen Dovid Adam !! And after the disaster – most of them (not all!) did not reach out at all… they were not determined and urgent to help, to say the least.”

====

Another thing that Menachem Engel states – corroborated by many others – is that the Toldos Aharon plaza was unusually and uncomfortably crowded, and that he felt ‘trapped’ in the complex as soon as he entered it.

Other eye-witnesses have said that the police blocked other exits out the Toldos Aharon plaza, leaving ‘Reb Dov Shvil’ – the metal ramp – as pretty much the only exit out of the area.

According to the eyewitness above, he was told by a ‘mystery chassid’ to try to find another route out of the Toldos Aharon Complex because there was so much overcrowding at the blocked exit.

He only managed to do that because he was joined by a group of 40 yeshiva bochurs who managed to ‘fight their way out’ of the crowds to go up past the bleachers, and to exit via the area containing the ‘back bleachers’ at the top of this picture:

====

Let’s try to sum up the list of specific questions here, to keep this as simple as possible:

1.Why were all other exits out of the Toldos Aharon complex blocked off by the police?

2. Why was the only real exit out of the Toldos Aharon complex blocked by gates for half an hour, while more and more people joined the crush on the metal ramp? –

UPDATE: More information is coming out about how the exit was blocked. It could have been gates, initially, but it could also have been the group of 10 policemen, plus at least one policewoman, who showed up shortly before the ‘disaster’ and physically prevented the crowds from leaving the steps.

3. Who gave the order for that exit to be blocked?

4. Why was that order given?

5. Why was no public announcement made to tell people that the exit out of the Toldos Aharon complex had been blocked?

6. If you are going to tell me that the police closed the exit to prevent more people entering the plaza to ‘prevent overcrowding’, why wasn’t the gate set up at the top of the metal ramp, instead of by the bottom at the stairs?

7. Why was that whole area enclosed with white metal sheeting on the morning of L’ag B’omer, making a narrow, confined space even more narrow and confined?

(Especially in ‘Covid times’, when the authorities have been making a big distinction between ‘indoor’ and ‘outdoor’ areas?)

8. Why did the police refuse to acknowledge that they had blocked the main exit out of the Toldos Aharon complex – and instead tried to blame the disaster on a mythical ‘stampede’ that never happened?

9. Why, immediately after the disaster at 1am, did the police put a message out on the public announcement system that everyone should leave the Rashbi complex immediately – which only added to the crush at all the blocked exits, and prevented ambulances from being able to drive up to the site of the fatalities?

(That’s why we saw so many pictures of people being carried out by hand on stretchers, then taken a long way down the mountain by people running with them – the ambulances couldn’t get up to the site.)

10. What other structures were built, what other bottlenecks were created, what other exits were blocked by the police at Meron before L’ag B’omer, to create so much dangerous and unusual overcrowding in the area?

====

There are way, way more questions about what happened.

We’ll get to those another time.

But in this post, I’m focussing-in specifically on the circumstances that led to the deaths of those 45 Meron Martyrs.

I’ve learned from experience that it’s when we focus in on the details, the nitty-gritty, that the truth inevitably starts to shake out.

I know they say the devil is in the detail, but invariably, I’ve found that the truth is in the detail – and once you pin the details down, they just can’t spin their lies about what happened in quite the same way.

====

BH, we’ve made a lot of progress since Friday, in figuring out what really went on here.

Now, that this part of the equation is figured out, we can turn more of our attention to who made these deadly decisions, who enforced them – and who stood to benefit from a ‘mass casualty’ event in Meron this year.

Make no mistake: this time around all of these questions will be answered.

And the people responsible for the murder in Meron will finally be exposed.

====

UPDATE:

On the Ynet (fake…) news site they had this article, about the safety report about the Toldos Aharon complex ahead of L’ag B’Omer:

Snippet:

Meron event organizers ignored major safety report days before disaster

Report ordered organizers of the festivities at the Toldos Aharon compound, where the stampede occured, to have 4 passageways if the number of participants exceeds 9,000; 20,000 were inside when stampede occured but only one exit was open.

====

====

That Ynet report is trying to shift the blame for the deaths to the Toldos Aharon chassidut.

But what I want to know is, who was responsible for deciding there should be only one exit out of the Toldos Aharon complex?

I don’t believe that the Toldos Aharon chassidut would only want one exit in and out of their complex – how would that be helpful to them, and their followers?

So who made that decision, in stark contravention of this report that there should be at least 4 exits?

And then, who made the decision to close the only exit out of the Toldos Aharon complex, and who else signed off on it?

Once we know that, I think we’ll know a lot more.

====

UPDATE 2: THE VIDEO

In a minute and a half, you can now grasp what the MSM / government / police have all failed to explain to us over the last 4 days, namely how this ‘tragedy’ really occurred.

BH, I’m working on doing this in Hebrew, too, so the truth can get out there:

====

UPDATE 3:

I got this comment from the eyewitness in the video above, who wanted to make it clear that he doesn’t say / doesn’t know if the gates were still in place half an hour later.

I’m after the truth here, so I’m very happy to keep updating the information as more of it comes to light. And I’m very happy to see the new footage on Channel 12, that apparently shows there were no barriers.

Which means, of course, all these poor people on the steps suddenly stopped there for no reason at all, and voluntarily suffocated and crushed themselves to death….

Doesn’t it?

====

Menachem Engel says:(Edit)

Hi. I’m the guy in the video you posted in this article. I really want to make it clear that I state in the video that I dont know if the barriers were still up 30 minutes later. I don’t know why you would twist my words like that. New footage has come out tonight that shows there were no police barricades there. check channel 12 news. Thank you.

====

UPDATE 4:

This is in Hebrew, but Google translate does a good enough job of giving you the gist. It sets out in detail how the regular exits in and out of the ‘Toldos Aharon’ complex were blocked this L’ag B’omer, in the name of ‘Coronavirus Restrictions’.

While the Health Ministry put no limits – at all! – on the number of people travelling to Uman this year; and as far as I could see, there weren’t even the regular park n’ ride facilities in place this year to help regulate the crowds, what they did do is block off every exit to the ‘Toldos Aharon’ complex with fences, leaving just the ‘Shvil Reb Dov’ exit – which was known from previous years to be dangerously overcrowded, even with the other exits open.

https://hm-news.co.il/153013/

That article is apparently based on hundreds of eye-witness testimonies.

I was going to bring one of the comments on that article, which brings more information and raises a bunch more disturbing ideas, but I realised it’s making this post too long. So I will do a new post with that information instead, BH.

You might also like this article:

Rebbe Nachman’s works contain so many hints to what is transpiring all around us.

***Important updates below***

This morning in hitbodedut, I suddenly thought about his teaching about the ‘gallach’ and the ‘malach’.

(I will try to find the source on Shabbat, BH, but if anyone out there knows it, feel free to let me know in the comments section.)

Basically, he was talking about the vicissitudes of trying to serve God in this totally confused period of time known as ‘the end of days’.

And he explained how sometimes we act as if we are a malach – an angel; and other times, it all tips over and then we starting acting like a gallach – a priest.

====

Rav Ofer Erez does a fabulous job of bringing that lesson down to our level, and applying it to the issues so many of us have today, where one minute we are trying to be tzaddikim praying with devotion and being super-machmir about about everything – and the next minute we’re smoking a joint, or wasting a whole day gorging on netflix.

(Or worse…)

But this morning, I understood for the first time that Rabbenu was also actually describing the reality of what was going on then, in his time, and what is still going on today, in ours.

One minute, an ‘angel’ – and the next minute a priest.

====

I didn’t want to overload you with information in that last post.

It’s a lot to take in, I know.

But you should know that what I shared there is literally just the tip of the ‘Christian-Jews’ iceberg.

THIS link will take you to an archived page on the Wayback Machine for something called the ‘Messianicwiki’ site.

Specifically, it will take you to a page called:

“Some Jewish Witnesses for Christ”, by Aaron Bernstein published in 1909

It contains the names of 590 prominent Jews, from prominent families, who became vocal leaders in the xtian community.

====

Some of those people you’ve already met, in the posts in this blog.

But there are so many more, that just got scrubbed out of ‘official Jewish history’ – even though they continued to be in close touch with their relatives in the Jewish community, many of whom were the generation’s ‘leading rabbis’ and communal figures.

Let me give you a couple of examples, so you can see just how bad the problem was / is:

====

Exhibit 1:

Michael Solomon Alexander (1 May 1799 – 23 November 1845) the first Anglican Bishop in Jerusalem.

Here’s a snippet from Wikipedia:

He was the second son and one of five children born to Alexander Wolff. His ancestors may have come to Prussia from England, or may have been in Schönlanke for many generations.

His education in the Talmud began when he was seven years old, and from age sixteen to twenty, he was a teacher in his community of both Talmud and the German language.

He emigrated to England in about 1820, and became a private tutor for a Jewish family in Colchester. Then he became rabbi at Norwich. Here he came into contact with William Marsh, a stalwart of the London Society for Promoting Christianity Amongst the Jews (now known as the Church’s Ministry Among Jewish People or CMJ).

Attempting to flee Christian influences, he accepted the post of teacher and shochet at Plymouth. He taught Hebrew to the Rev. Benjamin Golding of Stonehouse church.

In 1825, he converted to Christianity.

Michael Solomon Alexander

The first Anglican Bishop of Jerusalem, Michael Solomon Alexander

====

Then in 1841, he was proposed as the first Anglican Bishop of Jerusalem, and arrived in the Holy Land in 1842.

As soon as he touched down in Jerusalem, he sparked off a mad race with all the other xtian sects, for them to ‘consolidate their presence in Jerusalem’. Hey, thanks guy!

But that’s not all.

What of his relatives? The people he left behind, and the 9 kids he had with his wife, ‘Deborah Levy’?

====

(I just tripped over a whole bunch of VERY interesting info about that, which BH I’ll do as an update below a little later on.)

====

Here’s a snippet of his write up on that ‘witnesses for Krist’ page:

One of the most interesting incidents in his [missionising] work in Prussia was a visit to his birthplace, and the meeting with his brother, a rabbi to a large congregation near Posen.

We quote the future Bishop’s own words, as shewing his humbleness of mind, and how fully he had left Judaism behind, and entered into the joys of his new faith.

“I cannot describe my feelings on finding myself now in Posen, my native country, when I reflect on the wonderful dealings of the Lord with me since I left this place nine years ago. I was then a wandering sheep from my Saviour’s fold, walking in darkness….[more missionising xtian claptrap….]

“The Lord gave me another gracious token of His mercy at Posen.

I wrote to my brother, who is rabbi to the large Jewish congregation twelve miles from Posen, informing him of my arrival, and requesting that we might have a meeting.

I had very faint hopes of his compliance, as he had been most bitter against me since my baptism. His letter, however, expressed a wish to meet me half way from Posen.

I immediately set off, and had the unspeakable satisfaction of embracing my brother, not as an enemy, even for the Gospel’s sake, but full of brotherly love and affection, and even giving me credit for sincerity.

I stated to him the Gospel, and declared also to him an account of the hope that was in me. He acknowledged that he had not given the subject due consideration, but he promised he would.

He told me what is very important, viz., that it is generally expected among the Jews, that the coming generation will embrace Christianity, and that Judaism is fast dying away.

Time would not allow him to be much with us, and we parted, praying together that the Lord would open his eyes to behold His glory, as it shines in the face of Jesus, and that we may both be united in His love, and become brothers in Christ.”

====

Wouldn’t you just love to know who that rabbinic brother in Posen of ‘Bishop Michael’ was?

I sure would.

But for now, they’ve managed to totally scrub his real identity out of the picture.

(But if you’ve been following this blog, you’ll know that I’ve had a keen interest in quite a few ‘rabbis from Posen’, over the last few months, with strange links to the xtian world.)

====

UPDATE:

I found his brother, it’s Wolff Alexander.

====

(And I found his sister, too: Joanna Pick, who married Jacob Pick.

Those names don’t mean a lot to you, probably, but to me, they are ‘Real Jewish History’ gold.

I’ll explain why in a separate post, BH.)

====

Bishop Michael was a big ‘success’ in Jerusalem.

In the four years he was here, before he died, he managed to convert a whole load of Jews to xtianity.

Thirty-one of them even sent his widow a signed letter of condolence, when Bishop Michael popped his clogs in 1845. And the guy mamash set the ‘Hebrew church’ on a very strong foundation in the Holy Land.

Here’s a description of his first year:

In conformity with instructions received from Constantinople, proclamation was made in the mosques, that “he who touches the Anglican Bishop will be regarded as touching the apple of the Pasha’s eye.”

The presence of the Bishop was soon felt in work amongst the Jews in Jerusalem…

 The Bishop had held his first ordination on March 17, had baptized a Jew on Whitsun Day, and confirmed eight Hebrew Christians; married two converts; finishing up with the ordination of a Hebrew Christian missionary.

The upper room proved all too small, and the building of the London Society’s permanent church, which was to serve the joint purposes of a Cathedral, a chapel for British residence, and a mission centre, was proceeded with…

====

Sigh.

These ‘Christian-Jews’ have been pulling the strings here in the Holyland for two centuries (at least….)

This guy was working for the Prussian and British governments and monarchy; he’s a high-level ‘Christian-Jew’ with rabbinic relatives also interested in yoshki working back in the ‘old country’; he mamash totally changed the face of Jerusalem, converted tens, maybe even hundreds of Jews in the Old City back when there weren’t a lot of Jews in Jerusalem – and we’ve never heard of him.

Why not?

====

While you are pondering that, let me introduce you to one other ‘Christian Jew’ who caught my eye.

Exhibit 2:

Christian David Ginsburg

Here’s his write-up, from HERE:

Rev. Dr. Christian David Ginsburg, born at Warsaw, December 25, 1821, embraced Christianity there in 1846, was missionary of the British Society in Liverpool till 1863, when he retired in order to devote himself entirely to literary work.

Dr. Ginsburg contributed a considerable number of valuable articles on Jewish topics to Kitto’s Encyclopædia, published a book on the Karaites and Essenes, and a full account in English of the Kabbalah, its doctrines, development, and literature.

But he will be especially remembered for his massoretic studies, and translation of Elias Levita’s “Massoreth-ha-Massorah” in 1867, and of Jacob ben Hayim’s “Introduction to the Rabbinic Bible,” published in the same year. He was on the Revision Committee of the Old Testament.

He edited the Massoretic Critical Text of the Hebrew Bible for the Trinitarian Bible Society, 1894, and also Salkinson’s translation of the New Testament into Hebrew, 1886.

====

The Karaites are one of my newest obsessions….

You’ll be hearing more about them soon, BH.

But in the meantime – there are so many scions of ‘big’ Jewish families who became openly xtian – and not just openly xtian in a private way, they became bishops and missionaries and translators of xtian stuff into Hebrew, and went on ‘secret missions’ to get more Jews baptised and following yoshki…

And we know nothing about them.

But at least for me, it’s tarting to explain more about just why there are so many strange ‘gaps’ in the genealogical record, and so much censorship going on around real Jewish history.

And also, why xtians continue to pull the strings here in the Holy Land, from behind the scenes, while our elected officials, leaders and ‘rabbis’ continue to pretend that the State of Israel was a ‘Jewish country’ set up for Jews.

It’s all a lie.

But BH, it’s finally starting to unravel.

====

UPDATE 2:

Well, I went to check out “The Church’s Ministry Among Jewish People (CMJ) (formerly the London Jews’ Society and the London Society for Promoting Christianity Amongst the Jews)”, which sent Bishop Michael over to us, to start converting Jews like crazy in the Holy Land, back in 1842.

It was started in 1809, by a dodgy sounding (probably crypto-Jewish) xtian called ‘Charles Simeon’ and the infamous William Wilberforce.

You can read up more about them on Wiki, HERE.

====

I’ve been going through all the Jewish converts – almost all rabbis, and sons of rabbis – who joined their ranks over the course of the 19th century, and it’s profoundly shocking, to say the least.

I’m going to list just a few names of their ‘Jewish missionaries’ below, with their bios – and only read them if you have a strong stomach for xtian c*ap.

Zebi Nasi Hirsch Prinz

and

Here’s a snippet about what they were getting up to then, in Israel – 100 years before ‘the State of Israel’ came into being, in 1948:

In 1836, two missionaries were sent to Jerusalem: Dr. Albert Gerstmann, a physician, and Melville Bergheim, a pharmacist, who opened a clinic that provided free medical services. By 1844, it had become a 24-bed hospital.

In its heyday, the society had over 250 missionaries. It supported the creation of the post of Anglican Bishop in Jerusalem in 1841, and the first incumbent was one of its workers, Michael Solomon Alexander.] The society was active in the establishment of Christ Church, Jerusalem, the oldest Protestant church in the Middle East, completed in 1849.

In 1863, the society purchased property outside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem. In 1897, they opened a hospital on the site, designed by architect Arthur Beresford Pite. Today, the building houses the Anglican International School Jerusalem, which is operated by the society.

====

All this is a problem.

But the much bigger problem is that this organisation is still going strong today.

HERE‘s their website, and here’s a few of the snippets I gleaned before the nauseous feeling overcame me:

====

Like I said, all this is still just the tip of a massive iceberg.

There are so many ‘missionaries’ here that are born (externally…) Jews, or who belong to organisations and belief systems that were compromised a very long time ago.

We have no idea, just how far this rot has spread.

But we’re starting to guess.

And it’s frankly really scary.

====

UPDATE 3#:

When I plugged in those ‘medical missionaries’ to Jerusalem described above, I got to this xtian blog, which finally sets out who was really behind the whole ‘Zionist’ enterprise, to get Jews back to Eretz Israel.

Surprise surprise!

It wasn’t Jews.

It was ‘Christian Zionists’ – from 400 years ago.

Here’s a snippet, but go read the whole thing for yourself, if you really want to get a better idea of what’s been going on here, and why the State of Israel has been resolutely ‘anti-Torah’ and pro-missionising Jews right from the start:

In 1640 AD, Parliamentary censorship of the Puritans ended.  That same year, Jews were allowed to return to England, for the first time since they were expelled in 1290 AD.  It seemed like the time to help the Jews establish self-rule in the land of Israel was at hand.  So, the Puritan leaders in England met with the leading Ashkenazi rabbis of England in London, England, to offer their help in establishing Jewish self-rule in the land of Israel.  Much to their surprise, every single one of these rabbis was adamantly opposed this!

It seemed like the dream of Jewish self-rule in the land of Israel had became only the dream of Christian Zionists….

Christian Zionists bypassed the Rabbis, and met with ordinary Ashkenazi Jews. 

They sought to change the hearts and minds of Ashkenazi Jews, about Jews becoming self-governing in the land of Israel again.  They worked to change public opinion to support this idea.  They worked to change laws that would be favorable in helping Jews make the transition to a country, that did not even exist at the time. 

They worked to influence the Ottoman Empire to allow Jews to move back to the land of Israel in greater numbers.  One of them even spent his entire fortune building docks and inns in New Haven, Connecticut, to handle the large number of Jews, who would one day move to the Land of Israel, and set up a Jewish government there.

====

The xtian Rothschilds – and all the other secret xtianised ‘rabbis’, especially centered in around Vilna and Berlin – are just the front, the Trojan Horse, for these ‘xtian zionists’ – who themselves are probably just a front for the Sabeans, and I don’t know what else.

‘Shabtai Tzvi’ was handpicked as the candidate to get Jews to Israel, in 1666 – the year these xtian zionists had fixed as the ‘end of days’.

That’s a big statement, but I (think…) I can prove it.

There’s so much more to say here.

But I have to make supper and get ready to go to Meron later this evening, so this will have to wait a little while longer, until the birur is finally moved on a level.

This is a hard post to write, and it’s probably going to be a hard post to read.

For the last few weeks – way before the news broke about the fake-chareidi-xtian-missionary brazening it out in French Hill – I’ve been researching the topic of Christian-Jews.

Before I continue, let me back up and fill in the context, so you understand more of what I’m going to share with you later.

In a nutshell, I believe that this is what has been going on in the Jewish community, for at least the last 2,000 years:

====

  • The Jewish community has been infiltrated, at the highest levels, by people who look externally Jewish, and act Jewish, and often have superb ‘yichus’ – but who are really not Jewish.
  • Many of these people – probably even most of them – have some sort of Jewish blood, or Jewish ‘DNA’, if you can call it that, but it’s often ‘patrilineal descent’ and usually comes from mixed marriages with women who aren’t halachically Jewish.
  • Many of our biggest rabbis, our most important leaders, over the last at least 1,000 years have been people who have been leading ‘double lives’ – i.e. pretending to be orthodox Jews, at least externally, when they really aren’t. Many of our rabbis have also been very closely related to Christian-Jews.
  • The problem was exacerbated by the ‘conversos’ of Spain and Portugal, after 1492, but there were large numbers of Christian-Jews – especially in leadership roles – even before this.

====

There is so much to say about this topic, but I have to tread very carefully.

What I thought I’d do, is bring some of the stories of these ‘Christian-Jews’, so you can get a flavor for just how big the problem actually was, over the last 2,000 years – and how big a problem it continues to be, for the authentic Jewish community.

We’ll start with the ‘low hanging fruit’ while I’m trying to figure out what to do with the really explosive, controversial stuff that I’m still not ready to share publically.

Here we go.

====

How did I get into this subject?

I’ve been busy putting together a real family tree for the more ‘interesting’ Jewish families, where there’s been an obvious cover-up of the real details and information.

In the process of doing that, I kept tripping over weird names, and weird snippets of information, that hinted that certain members of these families had formally converted to xtianity. And I was amazed at just how many of these weird names I kept tripping over, despite all the cover up that’s gone on.

Let me give a few concrete examples:

====

Exhibit 1: Paulus Renatus (aka Lob Oppenheim)

====

Here’s a snippet about him, from HERE:

Lob Oppenheim – Paulus Renatus The first Frankfurt Jew about whose conversion and its accompanying circumstances more detailed information is available was Lob Oppenheim, who informed the city council of his intention in August 1537 and at the same time complained that his wife Edel (also: nobility) refuse to convert with him.

====

Notice that this was happening a good 100 years before Shabtai Tzvi, and a good 50 years AFTER Jews from Spain and Portugal had been forced to go into exile, or convert under Ferdinand and Isabella.

Now, if you go HERE – the German Wikipedia article for the Oppenheim family – you’ll see that (despite a clumsy attempted cover up…), we can identify the xtian ‘Paulus Renatus’ as one and the same as the Jewish Judah Loeb Oppenheim of Frankfurt – married to Edel:

====

It says that – at least initially – Edel, his wife, refused to convert with him.

But if you continue reading down that list of ‘Oppenheims’ in Frankfurt who directly descended from ‘Paulus Renatus’, you quickly see that there are way more relatives listed as ‘Christian Jews’ in this family, including:

The grandson of Paulus Renatus, was also called Juda Löb (Löw) Oppenheim. His wife’s mother’s uncle (‘Amschel von Schleusingen’) was another xtian convert called Hans Cunrath.

According to the below, xtian ‘Amschel von Schleusingen’ had a double identity, and was known as ‘Akiva Frankfurter Guggenheim‘ within the Jewish community.

====

One of (secret xtian) ‘Akiva Frankfurter Guggenheim’s’ daughters, called Rechle Wetzlar, was the mother of Ella Rothschild – the progenitor of the famous Rothschild clan.

That’s not a coincidence.

====

====

To put this another way:

There is strong circumstantial evidence to suggest that the ‘Rothschilds’ haven’t really been Jews for over 400 years, already.

But let’s continue.

====

Going back to that Wikipedia entry for the Oppenheim family, we next learn this:

Judah Lob Oppenheim #2, the grandson of Paulus Renatus, had another brother called Meyer Oppenheim (1580-1640).

Guess what?

Meyer also converted out to xtianity, as did his children.

But his wife Breindlen refused to be baptised, and so began a long, protracted divorce that lasted for many years, and caused an enormous chillul Hashem in both the Jewish Frankfurt community, and also amongst the xtians.

Here‘s a snippet of what was going on then:

Meir Oppenheim converted on December 21, 1606 to Christianity and took the name John Daniel Lichtenstein in. His wife Brendle (Brendlin) did not convert, but their children were baptized.

She demanded a divorce from him , he refused this and the disputes lasted until after 1620… because Lichtenstein demanded a share of 13,500 guilders for himself from the joint property with his wife, it was a sum of 18,000 guilders… [I]n November 1610 he sued his “former Jewish housewife” and her relatives as well…. 

Meir Oppenheimer / Johann Daniel Lichtenstein fell away from the Christian faith after being baptized, became Jewish again and fled to Poland. His brothers Mosche “Zum Schwert” and Juda Löb “Zum White Löwen” were assumed to have been the escape helpers. They fled from the threat of torture to force a confession and turned to the Supreme Court , whereupon the council issued a judgment that forced Moshe to pay 9,000 guilders and Löb 3,000 guilders.

After this judgment, Meir was baptized again in 1626.

====

You see what I mean?

These guys just flipped in and out of xtianity or Judaism as it suited them – and then carried on being the leaders and ‘rabbis’ of the Jewish community.

For example, here’s what happened to Meir’s son:

Hieronimus Lichtenstein became a rabbi after his father fell away from Christianity, professed again Christian baptism and became a Protestant pastor…. baptized in 1626. 

You can read more about Meir’s descendants, the openly xtian ‘Liechensteins’, HERE.

There are a LOT more links with the Oppenheim family to explore, but we’ll leave that here for now, as I still have a couple more ‘Christian-Jews’ to introduce you too.

====

Exhibit 2: John Ernuszt I

Now, I’m sure you’ve never heard of ‘John Ernuszt‘. So let me introduce you, a little:

John Ernuszt, Sr. was Ban of Slavonia from 1473 to 1476. He was born into a Jewish family in Vienna. He moved to Buda, the capital of the Kingdom of Hungary, and converted to Roman Catholicism. He became a purveyor to the royal court, which enabled him to meet Matthias Corvinus, King of Hungary.

His career in the administration of royal revenues began in 1461, with responsibility for the collection of the thirtieth (a custom duty) in Pozsony County….

Ernuszt inspired Matthias’s reform of the royal revenues (especially the centralization of their administration and the abolishment of tax exemptions) in 1467. In the same year, the king made him royal treasurer. Six years later, he was appointed ban of Slavonia and became one of the barons of the realm. 

====

John Ernuszt Sr has two sons with his wife Catherine (the records don’t know if she was Jewish or not).

One, Sigismund Ernuszt, is made the Bishop of Pecs in 1473, while the second one, John Ernuszt Jnr, follows his dad into dealing with the royal finances.

Here’s a little about what happens next (from Wikipedia):

The Ernuszt brothers who held more than 3,500 peasant households were among the wealthiest landowners in Hungary in 1494…. In 1495, he received the estate of Munkács (MukacheveUkraine) from the King….

His brother, Bishop Sigismund was murdered in summer 1505. His three retainers (John Gyulai, Louis Szerecsen and Albert Cupi) strangled him to seize his wealth.[12] Sigismund’s legal heir was his younger brother, John… John Ernuszt brought charges against the assassins in spring 1506, also accusing them of misappropriation of the Ernuszt property. However they were never sentenced….

In 1514, John initiated a second lawsuit against the three retainers… John’s lawyers accused the suspects of murder, the falsification of Sigismund’s last will and embezzlement of 1,3 million gold florins….

Following John’s death, his only living son Caspar initiated a new trial in 1536, however he died in 1540 and the House of Ernuszt became extinct, making the lawsuit is obsolete.

====

I discovered ‘John Ernuszt’ in a weird way.

As you know, I’m going through the family trees of a few ‘interesting’ families, and I’d got up to trying to figure out who the ancestors of the SHACH were, Shabbatai ben Meir HaKohen Katz Ashkenazi.

(That’s a whole other story… and I’m not sure I’m ever going to be able to really tell it. But I digress.)

So, I get to this geni profile of ‘R Akiva HaKohen Katz’ of Budin(1460-1496), and here’s a little of what I read:

“There was a man here in Prague that was great in Torah, wealth and Yichus that came to Prague from those that were exiled from the holy congregation of Uban (Budapest) because of a libel that was fabricated there.

This man was called Rabbi Akiva from Uban. [Son of Rabbi Yitzchok HaKohen son of Rabbi Akiva Kakohen the elder, Av Bais Din of Saloniki (Greece) who were both exiles from Spain, all descendants of The Kohen Gadol Elie.]

Rabbi Akiva was called to the Yeshiva above (died) in the year 5256 (1496). He was known as an expert in Royal Court customs and because of jealousy, the nobles of Hungary in Uban fabricated a libel. He came here (Prague) and built a great, respected house and spread tora in the generation of Rabbi Yaakov POLLACK who was the Av Bais Din here at that time. [Listed as an advisor of King Mathais of Hungary by Encyclopedia Judaica.]…

One of his sons was Rabbi Gershon father of Rabbi Shimshon HaCohen, father of Rabbi Yitzhak HaCohen-Katz, son-in-law of the great Maharal of Prague.

====

There’s a few things that strike me as odd about this, initially.

First, ‘R’ Akiva HaKohen Katz’ has an alter ego, where’s he’s apparently also known as ‘Furst von Open’.

Whenever you see ‘von’, that means the person was ennobled. But hard as I look, I can’t find any record anywhere of a Jewish advisor to the Hungarian king who was ennobled at this time…. except, for John Ernuszt I, the converted Jew.

Akiva comes from ‘Budin’, and John lives in ‘Buda’ – the same place.

Akiva is apparently at the Hungarian court between 1460-1496, and John is apparently at the Hungarian court at exactly the same time.

How is that for a CO-INC-ID-ENCE?

====

Akiva HaKohen Katz then moves from Hungary to Prague…. at exactly the same time that ‘John Ernuszt’ apparently dies, after becoming embroiled in a massive dispute, or ‘libel’ with the Hungarian nobles.

If you go HERE, you start to figure out a little more about why the nobles start revolting against ‘John Ernuszt’:

[Hungarian King Matthias] entrusted the administration of the Crown’s customs to John Ernuszt, a converted Jewish merchant. Within two years, Ernuszt was responsible for the collection of all ordinary and extraordinary taxes, and the management of the salt mines.

Matthias’s tax reform caused a revolt in Transylvania.

====

So, I have to ask:

What are the chances that there would be two Jews, one ‘converted’ and one not, working for the same Hungarian king, at exactly the same time, both involved in ‘libels’ with the Hungarian nobels, and both ‘ennobled’ at a time when very few commoners – never mind Jews – were being ennobled?

And not only that – there are no records of ‘Furst von Open’ – the apparent alter ego of R’ Akiva HaKohen Katz.

====

I’m a big believe in Occam’s Razor.

The simplest explanation is usually the correct one.

And the simplest explanation here is that ‘R’ Akiva HaKohen of Budin’ is one and the same as ‘John Ernuszt of Buda’, the converted Jew whose son became a Hungarian Bishop, and who married a bunch of apparently non-Jewish women.

====

I cannot begin to tell you how many family trees of BIG rabbis this piece of information torpedoes, yichus-wise, if it’s correct.

I cannot begin to tell you the implications, but let’s just say there are people related to ‘R’ Akiva HaCohen Katz’ who I believe shook the Jewish world to its foundation.

Repeatedly.

All these ‘Christian-Jews’ are a VERY big problem for the Jewish community – and they have been for centuries.

====

I probably just blew your mind with all this, so I’ll leave it there for now.

All this information has to come out, for the olam hafuch to turn the right way around.

But I appreciate, that this whole process of birur is difficult.

I really do.

And there is still a way to go, until it’s done.

====

You might also like this article:

Well, the more I look into the ‘star of David’, the more it seems that it’s really not kosher.

My investigative journalist contact sent me something they wrote a while back on the subject, which I’m reproducing below, with their permission.

At the same time, I got another email yesterday from someone closely connected to the Rav, Rav Berland, detailing how the State tried to kill off the Rav in prison by injecting him with poison.

Apparently, they’ve done this many, many times to many other rabbis and others who they want to get rid of.

Except this time, it didn’t work.

So the doctor who tried to murder the Rav had some sort of spiritual awakening, realised he’s dealing with someone ‘supernatural’ – because let’s be clear, there’s no way that the State of Israel could NOT poison someone to death, if that’s what it really wanted to do – and then came to beg for forgiveness.

The Rav told him he’d be forgiven if he told others what he’d done.

And that’s how the story finally surfaced publically, at least in the circles close to the Rav.

====

We aren’t dealing with ‘nice’ people here, I hope that’s something more and more of us are starting to understand.

They aren’t telling us the truth about anything, and they are the opposite of how they portray themselves, as ‘good’ and ‘holy’.

(It’s the olam hafuch, remember?)

There are a lot of questions all this raises.

If rabbis who receive the State’s shekel can’t be trusted (as we have so clearly seen, with the Covid 19 agenda); if bureaucrats and politicians who are working for the State are clearly corrupt and pushing evil, anti-Torah agendas in 50 million different ways; if the ‘State within the State’ – i.e. the secret services – are engaged in human trafficking, gun running, drug shipments and I don’t know what else…

Then what does that say about other people who were deep, deep in that corrupt, evil system, and working for that deep state?

While you are pondering that, let me leave you with the very well researched article on the Star of David – and at the bottom, I’ll add in a codicil so you can see how that ‘Star of David’ was being used by the Asiatic Brethren in their black magick initiation ceremonies.

====

Why the Star of David is the Perfect Sabbatian Symbol

Every religion or cult has to have its symbol.  The symbol represents the core beliefs of that religion summed up in some visual image.  Two groups that share the same symbol will inevitably share very similar beliefs.

The one exception to this is Judaism, which never had a permanent symbol.  Although the menorah acted something like a uniting symbol for the Jewish people, it was never charged with the same significance as say the cross or the yin yang.  Only fairly recently, in the past few centuries, did Judaism “adopt” the Star of David.

But here you will see why this could never possibly act as a true Jewish symbol, if Judaism could ever employ symbols.[1]

====

The simple triangular pyramid symbol has many uses in the occult beyond its double use in the Star of David.

It is the symbol of practically all illuministic societies.  It is often used as an Egyptian pyramid with an eye at its top.  This is the symbol on the back of the US dollar bill to this day.

To these groups, the eye in pyramid represents the principle of “higher knowledge.”

This mainly consists of the idea that those who use it have some sort of messianic quality that because of their higher-than-average intelligence and access to knowledge hidden from the general public permits them to act in a deceptive and underhanded manner.

The reasoning goes that they act in such a way for the benefit of society, but if people knew only part of the hidden information (and thus were not fully and totally enlightened like the elect) they might act with hostility towards the elect and prevent them from doing the “good” they wish to do.

==

Thus there are those who are “illuminated” and those who are still “ignorant.”

(This might account for the popularity of the term “ignorant” amongst radical leftists—“ignorant” takes its root from “gnosis,” the significance of which will become clear in the course of this essay.)

This leads to a general permissiveness in all manner of deceit on the part of the elect.[2]

So goes all Gnostic and illuministic thinking.  What they conceal generally is the idea that all religions are true and thus any form of worship is permitted.  This naturally is to the detriment of the idea of one God, one Torah, one Land, one Chosen People.

Particularly the latter, since the idea of a divinely Chosen People seriously disturbs the self-anointed elect.

==

It is the habit of these types to borrow from all religions, but especially Judaism and kabbalah.

In this regard, they are true charlatans who demonstrate the highest ignorance of any and all Jewish concepts, taking them haphazardly as is convenient.  This is where their pyramid undoubtedly comes from, besides its association with the Egyptian source.

The letter dalet in ancient Hebrew script came in the form of a triangle.

The Star of David then would be this dalet symbol doubled over on itself.

The heretical formerly-Jewish sect of Shabbatai Zvi were especially fond of using kabbalistic symbolism to justify and represent their heretical doctrines.  Many of the members of this sect continued to act openly as Jews, even while secretly practicing their unique blend of idolatrous Sufism and inversed halacha.

Thus many normal Jews were deceived by members of this sect into accepting them and their ideas as Jewish, even though on a “sod” (allusion) level they contained heretical ideas.

==

According to Professor Gershom Scholem, the Star of David found its revival in “Jewish” circles amongst none other than the Sabbatians themselves.

“The career of the Star of David as magic not only reaches its height, but it moves beyond the realm of magic to become a symbol of the Messianic redemption, which the followers of the Kabbalistic Messiah Sabbatai Zevi believed they had already begun to detect.” [3] 

This included its appearance in various Sabbatian amulets.  In fact amongst these amulets it was the only symbol used.  

It was also found on the tombstone of the Sabbatian magician, “Doctor Falk,” known as the “Baal Shem of London” (not to be confused with other legitimate kabbalists who went by the name “Baal Shem”) who died there in 1782. 

“The initials of his name, Samuel Jacob Hayyim, are there inscribed in a large Shield of David.  Such utilization of the sign on monuments was still very rare at this time and became popular only much later. 

On the cemetery of the Portuguese Jews of Hamburg, for example, it does not appear before 1828.”[4]

==

Notice the compass Samuel Falk is holding in his hand, and also that he’s next to a ‘challah cover’ with the star of David on it – 200 years before that was common.

==

The basic principle upon which Sabbatianism was founded was the idea that since the “messiah” came, the concept of sin didn’t exist, since the entire world had been redeemed.

Therefore, sin not only became permitted but actually a mitzvah.

Therefore, Sabbatians believed that by doing what was formerly forbidden they were elevating sparks of holiness from the abyss.[5]  This included engaging in formerly forbidden studies, such as Sufism, which is the quintessence of the Illuministic ideology explained earlier.

Thus in the Sabbatian scheme a regular triangle would represent the regular dalet of kabbalistic illumination.

An upside down triangle, on the other hand, would represent the inversed dalet of corrupted forbidden kabbalistic illumination—Sabbatian/Sufi illumination.

These combined together represent a union of these two principles.  Thus, on one hand, the corrupt illumination is elevated by the normal illumination. 

==

This is in line with the idea of the sanctification (illumination) and elevation of sin.

On the other hand, the normal illumination symbolically is made to look balanced by the corrupt illumination.  This is in line with the idea that no holiness is complete without a little sin thrown in.

Thus we see that the Star of David perfectly represents the Sabbatian ideal.

==

The Freemasons, another illuministic society, also use the Star of David in their symbol, albeit in an encoded manner.

Their symbol is two interlocked dalets in the more recent Ashurite script.  In the center is the letter G, which they claim represents the word “God.”

Rabbi Marvin Antelman, in his book To Eliminate the Opiate, Volume 2 asks, “…does the letter ‘G’ really stand for God?  Is it, rather, something else?

Perhaps the ‘G’ of ‘Gnosticism’?”[6]

==

Now the Greek word “gnosis” (knowledge) is “da’at” in Hebrew.

The dalet is most frequently used in kabbalah to represent the divine emanation of da’at, knowledge.  Thus, we see that the illuminati pyramid/dalet has a further connotation of da’at, or gnosis.  Therefore, the G in Freemasonry, if it in fact stands for “gnosis,” would also be a hidden allusion to the pyramid/dalet symbolism.

Here’s some more stuff about these mystical ‘triangles’, and the initiation rites of the Order of the Asiatic Brethren.

(From HERE:)

[The initiate] was led to the Table of Purification, on which stood three lights on as many columns.

The one represented a man with the triangle, the other a woman with the triangle reversed; the central one a man with a double triangle.

In the centre of the table stood a crystal cup, filled with water, in which salt had been dissolved, another cup with salt, a spoon, a bundle of cedar-wood bound with hyssop and pink and green silk.

The candidate had his coat and waist­coat taken off, the collar of his shirt opened, and his right arm bared. Having knelt down, the Grand Master sprinkled his neck thrice with the water, saying, “May the Merciful One give thee the knowledge of thy weapons, of thy lance, and of the number Four [which with Rosicrucians is the root and beginning of all numbers].

Then touching his right arm be said, “May the Almighty give thee strength in battle;” and touching his breast, “May the Just One give thee as a conqueror rest in the centre.” The “Sufferer” was then dressed again, the Grand Master opened the Holiest of Holies, and the candidate having taken the oath, the Grand Master dabbed him a Knight.

Touching his right shoulder he said, “May the Infinite give thee strength, beauty, and wisdom for the fight;” and touching the left shoulder, “We receive thee, in the name of the most worshipful and wisest seven Fathers and Rulers of the seven Unknown Churches in Asia, as a Knight and initiated Brother.”

Touching him on the head, he said, “May the Eternal One give thee the light of the number Four, and thou shalt be delivered from the Eternal Death.”

Then there ensued mutual embracing, a little more speechifying by the Grand Master, and then the servants brought in salt, bread, wine, lamb and pork, the latter being symbolical of the Old and the New Covenant!

====

Remember, the Asiatic Brethren was set up by ‘Moses Dobrushka’, Jacob Frank’s nephew and successor.

And according to Albert Pike – leading freemason and really evil guy – this was the group that carried forward the Sabean-Xtian-Sabbatean-Frankist-Freemason plans for world domination into the next generation.

And that involved destroying the authentic Jews, and trying to uproot the Torah, and replacing yiddishkeit, and its focus on serving God and working on our own bad middot with the worship of knowledge and science and man’s own ego, instead.

All in the service of the Samech Mem.

And the Asiatic Brethren’s Sabbatian initiation symbol ended up on the Israeli flag, in a state that was funded and built by Frankist Rothschilds (amongst others.)

What a CO-IN-CID-ENCE.

I was looking at the Wikipedia article about the ‘Thule Society’, when my mouse had a ‘moment’ and decided to click on a different link.

***This post is being censored. I’ve just changed the tags so hopefully it will show up. Let me know.***

To be precise, I was looking at THIS article about ‘Thule Society’ founder, Rudolf von Sebottendorf, snippet below:

Adam Alfred Rudolf Glauer (9 November 1875 – 8 May 1945?), also known as Rudolf Freiherr von Sebottendorff (or von Sebottendorf) was a German occultist, writer, intelligence agent and political activist.

He was the founder of the Thule Society, a post-World War I German occultist organization where he played a key role, and that influenced many members of the Nazi Party. He was a Freemason, a Sufi of the Bektashi order – after his conversion to Islam – and a practitioner of meditation, astrology, numerology, and alchemy.

====

Interesting guy, for all the wrong reasons.

I got to him via a tip-off about Shabtai Tzvi and the Sabbateans from one of my readers, that I shared in THIS article.

So anyway, I’m reading through, when this link catches my eye, and I click on:

Rite of Memphis-Misraim

It’s yet another Freemason ‘variant’ spin-off secret society from the 18th century that’s very heavy on Jewish biblical symbolism.

So, I’m reading through when suddenly my mouse goes full spastic and decides to click on one of the many embedded links in the text, namely this one:

Jean Bricaud – a French ‘neo-gnostic’ Bishop from the early 20th century.

====

His Wikipedia entry is accompanied by the following symbol – and this is when I start to sit up and really take notice:

star of david

====

What the heck is ‘Martinism’, and why the heck is it connected to the symbol you find on the State of Israel’s flag?

Let’s see if we can find out.

I click through a few more links, and I get to THIS article on Martinism, again from Wiki.

Snippet below:

Martinism is a form of Christian mysticism and esoteric Christianity concerned with the fall of the first man, his state of material privation from his divine source, and the process of his return, called ‘Reintegration’ or illumination.

As a mystical tradition, it was first transmitted through a masonic high-degree system established around 1740 in France by Martinez de Pasqually, and later propagated in different forms by his two students Louis Claude de Saint-Martin and Jean-Baptiste Willermoz.

====

Here is the image that Wikipedia uses to illustrate the article – the ‘Martinist Seal’.

Aka, the Star of David.

====

Curiouser and curiouser – that a branch of Xtian ‘mysticism’ associated with French secret societies of the 18th century basically has the Israeli flag as it’s ‘seal’.

So, I start to read up on what this ‘Martinism’ actually is, and I learn it’s divided up into 3 main branches, and that the guy who started it all off was some mysterious figure called Martinez de Pasqually.

He’s mysterious because:

  1. No-one really knows who he is, but there’s a strong suspicion he comes from a Jewish family – very possibly with Spanish Portuguese links;
  2. And then he becomes a Catholic – even though any Catholic who became a Freemason at that time would be excommunicated by the Church;
  3. And he’s directly connected to the British Royalty, via King Charles Stuart;
  4. And he decides to call his new Masonic-secret-society spin-off: the Elus-Cohens (French for ‘elected Cohens).

====

You can read a lot more about ‘Martinez de Pasqually’ (aka ‘Jacques de Livron Joachim de la Tour de la Casa Martinez de Pasqually’) HERE.

What I can tell you, is that he fits the bill for being a Frankist-Freemason, pretend-Jewish / pretend-Xtian, occult worshipping Sabean to a tee.

The last few weeks, I’ve been setting out who the Sabeans are, and how they’ve been subverting Judaism from within for the last 3,333 years.

(Click the links to read the posts.)

But to trip over a real-life example – replete with Star of David and close links to what became the Nazis – is something else.

====

The following comes from a website called:

GNOSTIQUE.NET

THE WORLD OF THE FRENCH GNOSTIC TRADITION

(If you remember from HERE, I explained that ‘Gnostic’ comes from the word gnosis – the Greek word for information / knowledge.)

“Jacques de Livron Joachim de la Tour de la Casa Martinez de Pasqually”, and that he was born in Grenoble, France, presumably in 1727. His father was born in Alicante Spain, and held a Masonic patent delivered by Charles Stuart, “King of Scotland, Ireland and England, dated 20th May 1738 and granting him as Deputy Grand Master the power to erect temples to the glory of the Grand Architect.”

====

Let’s be clear that the ‘Grand Architect’ they are talking about here is the Samech Mem himself.

These occultists are black magic practising, old-school devil-worshippers.

But who was Martinez ‘in real life’?

Here’s a few clues:

Martinez spent all his life working at the creation of a great spiritualized movement within the ranks of Freemasonry. When he eventually organized this movement as an Order, not strictly speaking Masonic, but composed exclusively of Masons, he gave it the name of “Ordre des Chevelier Maçons Élus Cohen de L’Univers”/“Order of Knight Masons, Elect Priests of the Universe.

Martinez spiritual mission began probably around 1758, but there is no doubt that prior to that period, he had worked actively at the promotion of the Freemasonic Order as such.

====

I bolded that year, 1758, because that was also a very big year in Jacob Frank’s life.

After the debate with the proto-Frankists at Kaminetz, in 1757, a bunch of Talmuds were taken out and burnt in the town square.

You can read about it yourself HERE, on JStor, but I also wrote up a potted history of Jacob Frank HERE.

Then in 1758, Frank won over the Polish Catholic church to his cause, and he and his followers, including Elisha Schor (Wolowski) converted en masse.

Frank himself pinpoints 1758, and his return to Poland, as the start of his real ‘spiritual mission’.

There’s a lot of overlap with ‘Martinez de Pasqually’ – and also very possibly, with Frank’s nephew, Moses Dobrushka.

====

I wrote a lot about who the real ‘Moses Dobrushka’ might be, HERE.

But let’s keep things simple by going along with the ‘official’ version of Moses Dobrushka’s bio, snippet from HERE:

DOBRUSCHKA, MOSES (1753–1794), Frankist and French revolutionary. Dobruschka was born in Bruenn into a family that belonged to the small circle of rich tax-farmers who largely controlled the tobacco administration during the regime of Maria Theresa.

His mother, Schoendel, was the first cousin of Jacob *Frank, and her house served as a meeting place for the secret adherents of the sect.

====

Now, are you ready for an amazing connection?

Here it is.

It’s widely known that Moses Dobrushka was one of the founders of a secret society called ‘The Asiatic Brethren’.

Here’s what just turned up, when I did a search on that (my underlining, for emphasis):

The Asiatic Brethren
http://surrenderingislam.com/surrendering-islam/asiatic-brethren

According to Albert Pike, a 33rd degree Scottish Rite Mason, and American Civil War general, the successors to the Illuminati were the Asiatic Brethren, a secret order created by Moses Dobrushka, Jacob Frank’s nephew and successor.

The Asiatic Brethren, also known as the Fratres Lucis, or the Brotherhood of Light, comprised chiefly of Jews, Turks, Persians, and Armenians, and purportedly represented a survival of the same “Johannite Christians” rescued by the Templars, that is, the Sabians.

Their full title was The Knights and Brethren of St. John the Evangelist.

====

Yes, we’re back to the Sabeans again.

Those same Sabians I wrote about HERE and HERE.

Snippet:

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.

    ====

So now, let’s sum up where we got to in this post.

(I know it’s hard to keep all this straight, but we’re getting there, with God’s help.)

  • There’s a xtian ‘mystical sect’ loosely called ‘Martinism’ that was set up by a crypto-Jew with French connections in the 18th century.
  • That ‘mystical sect’ has the Star of David has its ‘seal’, and is meant to be a spin-off from gnosticism (from the Greek world for knowledge / information, gnosis.)
  • The crypto-Jew who began ‘Martinism’ overlaps a great deal with Jacob Frank – and especially, with his nephew ‘Moses Dobrushka’.
  • Moses Dobrushka is known to have openly converted out to xtianity, moved to France and participated at a senior level in the French Revolution. He also was a founder member of the ‘Asiatic Brethren’.
  • The Asiatic Brethren was fingered by none other than Albert Pike, a really evil guy and leader of the freemasons in the USA, who said that the Asiatic Brethren was the successor to the ‘Illuminati’ secret societies that got closed down.
  • (On the small chance that you don’t know who they are, the Illuminati is behind all this ‘New World Order’ / worshipping the dark side stuff that’s been going on for at least two centuries. Rabbi Marvin Antelman wrote a lot of them in his book, To Eliminate the Opiate.)
  • The Asiatic Brethren is a continuation of the Sabeans – those Jew-hating, Torah-hating, devil-worshipping pretend xtians who trace all the way back to Laban the Aramean, and Bilaam, his descendent.

====

So now, how does the ‘Asiatic Brethren’, and Martinism, and the Sabeans, tie-in with the modern State of Israel?

That is the question.

And I think that not a few of us are starting to understand the answer.

TBC

UPDATE:

There is a whole bunch of new information to unpack in this article, which sets out a lot more of the links between Frank’s father-in-law, Samuel Falk, the ‘bad’ Baal Shem of London, and all these secret societies – and also their links to European royalty,

It’s going to take me a while to go through everything, but feel free to join me in figuring it out, in the meantime.

The more of us who start to engage with the truth, the more that truth is going to start permeating the world, regardless of how much I write about it.

Here’s a snippet, in the meantime:

Leading Illuminati like Saint-Martin, Swedenborg and Cagliostro, were all members of the Asiatic Brethren. Following the order’s demise, the title of Illuminati was given to the Martinists, founded by Saint-Martin. In 1771, an amalgamation of all the Masonic groups was effected at the new lodge of the Amis Réunis. A further development of the Amis Réunis was the Rite of the Philalethes, formed by Savalette de Langes in 1773, out of Swedenborgian, Martinist, and Rosicrucian mysteries.

Emmanuel Swedenborg became interested in the teachings of Dr. Samuel Jacob Falk, known as the “Baal Shem” of London, who was reputed to exercise miraculous powers through his supposed mastery of the magical names of God. Falk, according to Nesta Webster, was a crypto-Shabbatean, who collaborated with a network of Frankists in England, Holland, Poland, and Germany.

In Secret Societies and Subversive Movements, Webster explained, “Falk indeed was far more than a Mason, he was a high initiate – the supreme oracle to which the secret socieites applied for guidance.” According to Savallete de Langes, “some people believe him to be the Chief of all the Jews and attribute to purely political schemes all that is marvelous and singular in his life and conduct.”

We are getting closer and closer to nailing this.

UPDATE #2:

‘Moses Dobrushka’ had at least one major ‘partner in crime’ when he was setting up the Asiatic Brotherhood, as part of the continuing Sabean plot to bring the world to darkness- and destroy the Torah and the real Jewish people.

He was called: Ephraim Joseph Hirschfeld AKA Ephraim Joseph Hirschel (Germany 1758 – 1820).

Unlike Dobrushka, Hirschfeld externally remained within the Jewish community to subvert from the inside.

Here’s a little about him, from HERE:

Comments: Freemason; Jewish; Qabalist; Ceremonial Magick; Qabalisitc partner to Hans Heinrich von Ecker und von Eckihoffem‘s various Masonic endeavors, with his brother Pascal providing better Hebrew than Ephraim was capable of understanding and writing.

Somewhat in competition with Baron Thomas von Schoenfeld who was also finding Qabalistic elements to incorporate in their Advanced Masonic degrees and their Magickal practices.

Teachers: Franz Joseph Molitor;

Students: the Landgraf Carl von Hessen-Kassel; Hans Heinrich von Ecker und von Eckihoffem;

Friends: Johann Georg Schlosser , the brother of Goethe; David Friedlander; Moses Mendelssohn;

Enemies: rivals, not enemies, Baron Thomas von Schoenfeld, Qabalist;

Organizations: The Order of the Asiatic Brethren; Die Ritter des Lichts (Knights of the Light) AKA Order of Knights and Brothers of the Light ; Die Brueder St. Johannes des Evangelisten aus Asien in Europa (the Asiatic Brethren of St. John the Evangelist in Europe) banned 1785, helped create the Melchizedek Jewish Lodges;

Author: Ephraim Joseph Hirschfeld, & Hirschfeld, Pascal: Biblical Organon real or translation of the Bible with the mystical guidance and critical comments: Genesis, Chapter 1, verses 1-5, 1796

====

It’s not a coincidence that ‘Ephraim Joseph Hirschel’ (from Karlsruhe) is listed as being good friends with Moses Mendelssohn and David Friedlander – both in the vanguard of introducing Reform Judaism into the Jewish community.

Moses Mendelssohn recieved his smicha from none other than Yonatan Eybshutz, as I wrote about HERE.

I just tripped over some interesting information last week about which ‘elite’ families Mendelssohn and Friedlander belong to, but I’m still filling out the rest of the blanks, so that will have to wait for now.

====

And there’s another occult, Frankist-Freemason connection with a Falk, via this guy (from HERE):

Rabbi Johann Friedrich Falk AKA Chain Chenul Falk AKA “Cain Chenul Falk”

Germany / England 1811 – 1824

Comments: alchemy; Freemason; Jew; Qabalist; mentioned by Westcott along with Eliphas Levi in the first published notice about the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn in NOTES AND QUERIES, Dec. 1888;

Teachers:Rabbi Dr Hayyim Samuel Jacob Falk, AKA Dr Falcon aka The Baal Shem of London, 1708— 1782;

Students: Kenneth R. H. MackenzieFrederick HockleyWilliam Wynn WestcottWilliam Blake, who studied with him; George Eliot aka Mary Anne Evans, Mithilde Blind, Jewess poetess; Emanuel Oscar Menahem Deutsch, Talmud scholar;

Resources:http://hagiography.00.gs/Secret_Texts,_4.htm;

====

I’m going to continue to nose around – and please feel free to join me, as that way this will move way faster.

These fake Jews have been pulling the strings in our communities for far too long, and causing so much suffering and destruction.

It’s really time to get to the bottom of this, so that the true light of the Torah, and of our True Tzaddikim like Rabbi Nachman of Breslov and Rabbi Eliezer Berland, can start to shine out.

====

UPDATE #3:

This just in from my fellow investigative journalist, via email:

From Gershom Sholem,”The Star of David: History of a symbol” from the book the Messianic Idea in Judaism:

“The hexagram (star of David) next appears–with a clearly indicated point at its center–only much later among the various ornamental motifs on a frieze that decorates the well-known synagogue of Capernaum (Kefar Nachum) (second of third century).  But the same frieze displays a swastika right next to it, and no one will on that account claim that the swastika might be a Jewish symbol.” p. 260

There is a lot more in the article connecting the star of David to the Sabbatians.  However, I have seen the swastika in ancient (Kosher) Kabbalistic texts.  It symbolizes Jupiter/Tzedek.
====

Dafka, that this synagogue was in Kefar Nachum – Capernaum – is very meaningful.

Here’s why:
“Christian sources of the Byzantine period describe Capernaum as a village inhabited by Jews and Christians.”
Snippet 2, from HERE:
“Capernaum was the center of J*sus’ ministry. It was there that he performed a number of his miracles and healings; it was there that he taught and formed his disciples. In Capernaum, Jesus taught in both the local synagogue and in people’s homes.”
====

The thesis that is developing is that Yoshki was just one -and probably not even the first – in a long line of ‘false messiahs’ that the Sabians tried to infiltrate into authentic Judaism, to subvert us from within.

That the star of David – together with a swastika! – showed up in the mosaics of the Capernaum ‘synagogue’ seems very meaningful to me. These things apparently go together, in the world of the Sabeans.
We’ll see what else shows up.
