Let’s unpeel more of the ‘Frankist-Freemason’ onion.
You can read Part 1 of this expose HERE.
The main takeaways we’ll be focussing on in this post, is trying to trace more of Jacob Frank’s (aka ‘Jacob Benjamin Loeb Frankel’s) real-life descendants and relatives.
I also want to return to the ‘Bad Baal Shem’ of London, Frank’s father in law, who was known as Chaim Samuel Jacob Falk in London – and ‘Joel Baal Shem of Zamosc’, in the fake history we’ve had foisted on us for the last 200+ years.
I suspect this is going to be a wild ride…. Let’s begin.
One of the ways a ‘theory’ starts to turn into a verifiable ‘fact’ is if all the major details fit the theory.
The more we uncover the hidden reach of the Frankist-Freemasons within the wider Jewish world, the more that seems to be the case.
Let me give a pertinent example, of how these ‘small details’ are fitting the narrative.
For a long time, many people in the Jewish world believed that the portrait of the ‘Bad Baal Shem’, Falk, was actually a picture of the holy Baal Shem TOV – the ‘good’ Baal Shem.
On the Kotzk blog HERE, he explains how this ‘mistake’ came about:
The unsigned painting [of Falk] remained in the Goldsmid family.
At the beginning of the 1900’s British Chief Rabbi Dr Herman Adler gave a lecture about the Baal Shem of London and offered a viewing of the little-known portrait.
The picture was published in 1908 and was widely distributed. This resulted in people confusing The Baal Shem of London with the Baal Shem Tov of Medzebuzh.
We now know that ‘British Chief Rabbi Dr Herman Adler’ was a direct descendant of both Falk, (whose daughter married Jacob Frank) and of course, Frank himself.
In this screenshot, above, you can see that ‘Dr Herman Adler, Chief Rabbi of the Empire‘ is the son of ‘Chief Rabbi Nathan Marcus Adler’ – who we alredy fingered as being the grandson of Jacob Frank.
There is ‘Margola Shor’ in the screenshot, the real name of Jacob Frank’s mother, and we also have ‘Joel of Wronke’, aka Joel the Baal Shem of Zamosc, aka the ‘Bad Baal Shem’ of London in the frame too.
So, to put this another way:
The great-grandson of Jacob Frank, and the great-great grandson of ‘Chaim Shmuel Falk’, the ‘Baal Shem of London’, is the exact same guy who put his portrait into wide circulation in the early 1900s, where it accidentally confused for the real, good Baal Shem Tov.
Accidental, my foot.
These people know the true power of Jewish intentions and Jewish prayers, and they are expert at kind of ‘parasiting’ off of all of our holy intentions and yearning to connect to our real, true tzaddikim.
Throughout Jewish history, they have continually waylayed all that good, holy stuff – essentially, our yearning for Moshiach and geula! – with their evil, ‘false’ Baal Shems and ‘false’ messiahs.
This ‘mix-up’ with the pictures is just one more way they could siphon off all the good, holy Jewish intentions, and keep them ‘hostage’ on the side of bad.
Back on the Kotzk blog, we learn a few more important details about Falk.
Here’s a snippet:
Only around 2010 was it discovered that in all the articles written about the Baal Shem of London, no mention was ever made of his real name. According to the burial records of Alderney Road Cemetery his name is recorded as:
“5542 – 4 Iyar, died, Morenu Reb Abraham Shmuel ben Morenu Raphael, buried 5 Iyar, Baal Shem.”
That’s very interesting to me, because another one of the family trees that I’ve been circling around the last few months belongs to one:
Rabbi Raphael Ziskind Cohen, Chief Rabbi of Altona-Hamburg-Wandsbek
If you go to geni HERE, you can read a whole discussion where some of the more honest genealogists on the site, like Samuel Royde, are calling out the obvious distortions and errors in his family tree.
For example, Raphael Ziskind Cohen’s wife is Tamar Falk.… (there is that name again….) But no-one seems to know how she fits into the picture:
You can read more about ‘Yehoshua Falk’ (1555-1614) HERE, on Wikipedia.
This is the snippet that drew my attention:
The German name was chosen to fit the Hebrew one: thus “Zvi” or “Naftali” went with “Hirsch”, and “Zev” or “Binjamin” with “Wolf”.
Those whose given name was Yehoshua, Josua, or Joshua had the second name of Falk, Valk, Walk, Wallik or Wallich…. The name Falk was thus not a family name until the 19th century, when it was adopted by those whose immediate ancestors had “Falk” as a second name.
Encyclopedias will therefore have several entries under “Falk”, where “Falk”, strictly, is not a surname. References to Rabbi Falk are therefore often via “Yehoshua Falk ben Alexander HaCohen” or “Joshua Falk ben Alexander Katz” or “Joshua Falk Katz”.
Wallich / Wallaces come up a lot in my research of ‘interesting people’, and it’s good to have a link with the name ‘Falk’, now, to help pin things a bit more.
It’s probably going to take me a couple more weeks of poking around to confirm or deny the suspicion that ‘Avraham Shmuel ben Raphael Falk’ is somehow connected to Raphael Cohen and his wife Tamar Falk, so let’s leave that for now, because there is more ‘lower hanging fruit’ to discover.
The Kotzk blog also brings a letter that was published by R’ Yaakov Emden, as part of his attempts to ‘call out’ the bad Baal Shem of London for his Sabbatean links, and demon-worshipping black magic.
The letter is from one of the bad Baal Shem’s followers, Sussman Shesnowzi, and is written to his son. It describes some of what Sussman witnessed in the London home of the bad Baal Shem, Falk.
You can read the whole thing HERE, but I will quote it in entirety, below:
“Behold, the light which is called “lamp” is a great candelabrum of pure silver with doubled and trebled lights, stacked above each other, with eight flowered branches coming out of the sides, forming the shape of holy letters.
With this menorah he performed an amazing miracle.
On Friday he poured oil in, the typical amount for Shabbos – but the lamp stayed lit for three weeks until he personally dissolved the holy thing with his hands (and the miracle ceased). This was a new thing from the Master of the Universe, even greater than the miracle of Chanukah, when the Menorah lasted for only 8 days.
On this night of Tuesday, the 8th of Kislev, we saw an amazing thing. During the month of Cheshvan until now he had secluded himself in his home near the bridge (London Bridge).
He was shut in for six weeks, literally without food or drink, sleep or lighting any fire – you wouldn’t believe it!
After the sixth week he commanded that a minyan of learned men should immerse in the mikvah, and at midnight we who had prepared ourselves, dressing in white kittels, met at his home. The holy man commanded the aforementioned kabbalist Rabbi Moshe David to write (something) in his ledger.
Afterwards, he commanded this Moshe and another member of this holy Chevra, Rabbi Yaakov, grandson of R. Meir Eisenstadt (author of Panim Meiros), and they each lit a large candle. Then he commanded that the group enter barefooted into his room, and behold, we saw the holy man sitting on a throne, dressed like an angel…
The godly Kabbalist Rabbi Moshe David, known as Rabbi Moshe Ba’al Shem, wrote a letter to our master Rabbi Jonathan Eybeschutz, the famous Chief Rabbi of Hamburg, and told him all these great things and wonders regarding this holy man (=Falk). So R. Yonasan applied to him the words from the Tikkunim, that Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai said, זכאה דרא דהאי רזי עיתגלי ביה, “This generation is fortunate to have such mysteries revealed.”
The letter continues:
“I am grateful that I have been received into this Brotherhood, who by their piety can hasten the advent of the Messiah…my son, be very circumspect, and show this only to wise and discreet men. For here in London, this matter has not been disclosed to anyone who does not belong to our Brotherhood.”
Here’s some of what we can learn out from this letter:
- These bad ‘Baal Shems’ really could do, and were doing, ‘open miracles’.
- They had many pious followers, who truly believed that these bad ‘Baal Shems’ were doing things to ‘hasten the advent of the Messiah’.
- One of Falk’s ‘disciples’ was ‘Rabbi Moshe David’ – a known Sabbatean preacher from Podhayce.
- Another one of Falk’s disciples was ‘R’ Yaakov‘, the grandson of another secret Sabbatian, Meir Eisenstadt (the ‘Meir Panim‘.)
- Jonathan Eybshutz was apparently also a big fan of the bad Baal Shem of London.
Meir Eistenstadt’s brother was the false messiah and Sabbatean prophet Mordechai Mokiach.
Snippet from the Jewish Encyclopaedia, HERE:
Shabbethaian prophet and false Messiah; born in Alsace about 1650; died at Presburg May 18, 1729….His son, Judah Löb Mokiaḥ, an eminent Talmudist, died in Presburg Dec. 7, 1742; the latter’s sons were David Berlin and Isaiah Berlin, known also as “Isaiah Pick.“
The Meir Panim himself was a supporter of a different Sabbatean prophet (and false messiah) named Leib Prossnitz, who he brought in to preach at his yeshiva – where the Meir Panim’s ‘adopted son’ Yonatan Eybshutz was one of his keen students.
Snippet from the Jewish Encyclopaedia, HERE:
Cabalistic impostor; born about the end of the seventeenth century at Brody, Galicia; died about 1750…
The impostor was excommunicated by all the rabbis of Moravia, among them the “Landrabbiner” David Oppenheimer.
In spite of all this Löbele found many followers among the Shabbethaians. He proclaimed himself the Messiah ben Joseph, and signed his name “Joseph ben Jacob.”
He had relations with the Shabbethaian Mordecai Eisenstadt [i.e. Mordechai Mokiach, Meir Eistenstadt’s brother) and with Jonathan Eybeschütz, and seems to have been especially influenced by the Shabbethaian impostor Nehemiah Ḥayyun. Löbele wandered from city to city in Austria and Germany, and succeeded in duping many persons, who supplied him with funds.
In 1725 the excommunication was renewed, whereupon he betook himself to Hungary. Emden relates that he died there among non-Jews.
Löbele taught the strange doctrine that since the appearance of Shabbethai Ẓebi God had surrendered the guidance of the world to the latter, after whose ascent to heaven the mission was entrusted to Jonathan Eybeschütz and to Löbele himself.
All this Jewish history is written by people who were covering up the truth, and who were linked in to the ‘Frankist-Freemason’ nexus.
But it’s interesting to note the ‘tone’ from this snippet about Leib Prossnitz, who obviously represented a rival strain of ‘Shabbteanism’ from the one favored by the writer (i.e. what became Frankism).
The Moses David of Podhyce, another famous Sabbatean prophet and ‘disciple’ of the Bad Baal She talked about above, is actually Moses David Meisels.
His father is Zvi Meisels of Podhyce, of the well-known ‘Meisels’ family, which also has a lot of skeletons in the closet, rattling around.
We’ll probably come back to them another time, because the person I want to focus on now is the ‘Yaakov, grandson of the Meir Panim’, who was one of the bad Baal Shem’s main disciples.
You know you are onto something when even the Jewish Encyclopaedia has two different entries for the same guy:
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve come back to the ‘Meir Panim’s’ family tree, in my researches.
I’ve known his descendants are in the middle of all this for a while, but I haven’t been able to ‘pin it down’ specifically.
Let’s see if we can move this forward, at least a little, now.
In this family tree from yesterday, where we made the ‘Gunzburg brothers’ link-up between Jacob Frank’s branch of the family; the branch that the Vilna Gaon descends from; and the branch that the Baron Gunzburgs descend from, you can see this:
I know it’s a little blurry, but it says this:
NAPHTALI HIRZ GUNZBURG (brother of Jacob Frank’s grand-dad, ‘SIMEON GUNZBURG’) > SHPRINTZE GUNZBURG > unknown daughter marries SOLOMON ZALMAN MEISELS > JUDAH LEIB MIRKES > unknown daughter marries MICHAEL EISENSTADT > MOSHE EISENSTADT marries FINKEL KALLIR.
Those same names – Gunzburg, Meisels and Eisenstadt – come up again and again and again, especially when I’m trying to pin down the people associated with the beginnings of Chabad chassidut.
HERE is the family tree on geni – rife with deliberate disinformation:
‘Jacob ben Eliezer Eisenstadt’ the Sabbatean disciple of the bad Baal Shem of London, Jacob Frank’s father-in-law, is conspicuously absent from this tree.
These are the myriad small ways these Frankist-Freemasons use to try and cover up the trail of what is really going on here, and who is really controlling the top of the Jewish community – in all directions – behind the scenes.
Unpicking this is going to take me a few more hours and days of poring over family trees and comparing one to another.
But here is what I can already tell you.
‘HaRav Moishe Eisenstadt, ABD of Kletz’ who marries Finkel Kallir – is also a grandson of the Sabbatean ‘Meir Panim’.
His son is none other than Benjamin (Eisenstadt) Kletzker (screenshot comes from the more dependable ‘My Heritage’ website, HERE.)
His daughter – apparently ‘unknown’ – happens to marry the Alter Rebbe’s grandson Baruch Klutzkar, son of his daughter Frieda Klutzkar.
Baruch’s brother is the ‘Aharon Zaslavski’ who is meant to the father of Rivka, who married the Rebbe MaHARASH (No.4) – and also, Rebbe Nachman’s daughter Chaya, in a second marriage.
Here’s the ‘official story’ of this family, from Chabad:
Rebbetzin Freida SCHNEURI (b. Leozna, Poland) married to Rabbi Eliyahu ben Rabbi Mordechai KLUTZKAR. They had two children:* Boruch married the daughter of Binyomin KLETZKER.* Aharon ZASLAVSKI from Kremenchug. He married Chayeh daughter of Rebbe Nachman.
This is what I wrote HERE, about Benjamin Klutzkar:
Binyamin Kletzker was another famous talmid of the Alter Rebbe, and has a lot of stories told about him, like this, from HERE:
Few Chassidim intrigue us as much as Reb Binyomin Kletzker.
His greatness was that he was a phenomenally successful businessman, whose every action and decision was influenced by and in accordance with the Chassidus he learnt. Those teachings permeated him to such an extent that quite often, to the shock of his associates, he would become absorbed in a thought of Chassidus in the middle of his transactions, reflecting on it for an extended period of time.
I’m pretty sure THIS is the same guy, R’ Binyomin Volf Klatzki Gunzburg, because it’s a standard ‘trick’ these Sabbatian-Frankists use all the time, to switch the descent from the mother to the father, or vice-versa, to try to cover up the trail:
Binyomin Vulf Klatzi Gunzburg is the first cousin of Naftali Hirsch Gunzburg, the dad of Gabriel Yakov Gunzburg.
You know, the grand-dad of this guy:
Baron Joseph Gunzburg (who was doing very similar things, at very similar times, to the 4th Rebbe MAHARASH of Chabad.)
Binyomin Vulf Klatzi Gunzburg is also married to the niece of the Vilna Gaon, R’ Eliyahu Rivlin.
And so it continues, round and round, until God finally has mercy on me, and finally helps me totally pin this down, with yet more massive bits of paper.
I didn’t even get to discussing the descendants of Jacob Frank.
(At least, not the ones I had intended to talk about.)
But let me leave you with this THIS, a link to the Habayitah blog from 2016, talking about how the freemasons in Jerusalem were using Zedakiah’s Cave for their meetings for a long time even before the State of Israel was formally declared, in 1947.
Believe it or not but Jerusalem, more precisely Zedekiah’s Cave near Damascus Gate, has for years been the General Quarter for the Freemasons Order.
The order’s local chamber was “King Solomon’s Cave.” Members of the mysterious and secret group, established following special authorization from the Ottomans – who also had some members of the order among them – used to meet there, until the outcome of the War of Independence in 1948 prevented them from continuing.
Immediately following the Six Day War in 1967, the local order resumed its activities and meetings there.
