I went into a bit of a tailspin, the last couple of days.

That happens, doesn’t it? Even when we’re trying out best to have emuna, and trying out best to pray, and trying out best to keep ‘seeing the good’, there are moments, hours and days when we still feel down about what’s going on.

That’s what happened to me, on Friday.

Sunday, I drove up North with my husband, to the kever of Rava and Abbaye, near Tsfat.

====

The kever is situated in one of the most picturesque parts of Israel, up a hill overlooking forest and green. It was gorgeous.

Inside, after a couple of minutes, I started to relax and to feel a little stronger, spiritually, again. Like it’s going to be OK after all. Somehow.

After 10 minutes, I was shocked when a friend from America walked in with her family.

I was doing hitbodedut, so I went outside for a bit, where God had arranged a nice fire for me to sit by.

Literally.

Someone had gone to the trouble of piling 4-5 logs on some embers – and then left.

====

So, I did what I do best, and ‘fanned the flames’ until I got a good fire going, that I could sit next to.

After a few minutes, the friend from America came out, and we had a chat. She was there looking for some clarity about whether to stay in Israel, or go back to America.

While we were talking, she started crying a little bit, so I gave her some tissues.

A few hours later, she texted me that her father had died unexpectedly back in America – at exactly the time we were at the grave of Rava and Abbaye, when she started crying ‘for no obvious reason’.

Baruch Dayan HaEmet.

I guess God made the decision for her.

====

In the meantime, she showed me a picture of the Rav being loaded into an ambulance barely 4 hours after having major surgery, to send him back to prison.

Because they are trying to kill him.

In case you hadn’t realised that.

My friend said to me:

A lot of things must need sweetening again. That’s why he’s choosing to go back to prison like this.

When she put it like that, I started to cheer up.

====

That picture of the Rav showed that the ambulance was totally full of an impossible light – his aura was in full view again:

Ah, Rav.

====

Part of the reason I got so down the last few days is that I’m sick to the back teeth of hearing about all these ‘false messiahs’ and false leaders, and false ‘prophets’, who really don’t know anything (at best…) and could well be actively misleading the public.

They are all over the place, with their ‘predictions’ and ‘warnings’ and red herrings, that are just pulling so many of us away from the real work to be done to get geula, which basically boils down to prayer and sincere teshuva for all our millions of bad middot.

But then I realised something yesterday:

The truth is starting to come out.

And all these ‘false messiahs’ are starting to be exposed for what they are, in big and small ways.

====

Yesterday, I had a big urge to walk down to the Rav’s shul, on Ido HaNavi Street, and just go and be there a bit. I was doing hitbodedut as I walked, and by the time I got to the Beit HaRav, I was in tears.

My heart has been so full of sadness recently.

And some of that poured out, and down my face.

Ah Rav.

I miss your comforting ‘presence’ so much.

====

When I told this to my husband, he told me:

The Rav didn’t go anywhere we can’t reach him. The Tzaddik is hai v’kayam.

When he put it that way, I started to cheer up.

Then, my husband asked me if I’d seen the latest ‘announcement’ about the Rav from the autistics on the hebrew Shuvubanim.org page.

I hadn’t, so I went to look. Here’s a little what it says, freely translated (Hebrew original first, for those who can read it for themselves:)

====

“ועם ישראל אין זמן, משיח כבר פה, והוא פועל לעזור לכל היהודים. הוא פה בירושלים עיר הבירה, הוא שוכב חולה בבית חולים והרשעים לא נותנים לו מנוחה, מנסים לגמור אותו, חו”ש.”

Am Yisrael, there is no time. Moshiach is already here, and he’s working to help all the Jews. He’s here in Jerusalem, the capital city, he’s lying sick in the hospital, and the reshaim (evildoers) aren’t giving him any rest. They are trying to finish him, chas ‘v’ halilah.

====

בכלל עצרו את הרב ברלנד בלי שום הוכחות שהוא עשה משהו מנוגד לחוק, ולא לקחו אותו בעדינות, אלא התנפלו עליו, אפילו שהוא לא התנגד. בשחרית כשהוא התפלל, הם תפסו אותו וזרקו אותו לרצפה, אפילו שהוא יהודי מבוגר בן 84. יהודי שסובל מנמק ברגל, עם בעיות בלב, עם כליה אחת, שלא התנגד להם, אבל הם קיבלו הוראות, לעשות כאילו שהוא מתנגד, להעניש אותו, ואולי גם חשבו שזה יהרוג אותו.”

Generally speaking, they arrested the Rav Berland without any evidence that he’d done something against the law, and they didn’t take him gently, rather, they attacked him, even though he didn’t resist [being arrested].

At shacharit, when he was praying, they grabbe him and threw him to the floor, even though he was an elderly Jew aged 84 years old. A Jew who suffers from necrosis in the legs, and heart problems, with one kidney, who didn’t try to resist them.

But they received instructions, to make it seem as though he ‘resisted’, in order to punish him, and perhaps they also thought that this would kill him. [God forbid a billion times!]

====

“ומאז מעבירים אותו מבית סוהר לבית סוהר, והוא חולה מאוד וסובל מאוד. הוא הצדיק של הדור וזה מרגיז את הרשעים, כי הם לא מצליחים להרוג אותו. כמה שניסו בביה”ח להרוג אותו – לא הצליח להם. שלחו אותו מיד לבית הסוהר אחרי ניתוח של ארבע שעות. ברוך השם, הרופא בבית הסוהר אמר, שהוא לא יכול לקחת אחריות על בן אדם שהוא במצב גופני מאוד קשה, החזירו אותו לבית החולים.”

And since then, they’ve been shuffling him from prison to prison, and he’s very unwell, and is suffering greatly. 

He is the Tzaddik of the generation, and this upsets the reshaim, because they aren’t managing to kill him. As much as they tried in the hospital to kill him – it’s just not working for them. They sent him immediately back to the prison, after a four hour operation.

Baruch Hashem, the doctor in the prison said that he couldn’t take responsibility for a person in such a difficult physical state, so they had to take him back to hospital.

====

“בבית החולים גם מענישים אותו, אבל הוא לא מפחד, כי הוא יודע מי הוא, הוא יודע שהשם איתו, והוא יודע שרשעים לא משנה מה הם עושים, הם לא יכולים לפגוע בו.”

In the hospital they are also punishing him, but he isn’t scared, because he knows who he is. He knows that Hashem is with him. And he knows that the reshaim, no matter what they try to do, they can’t really hurt him.

====

“עם ישראל, כדי שהמשיח יוכל להילחם נגד הרשעות, הוא חייב את התפילות שלנו, זה נותן לו כוח להילחם נגד הרשעות. ואנחנו צריכים להתפלל עם דמעות, עם לב שבור, שתהיה לו רפואה שלמה, כדי שיוכל לחזור לבית הכנסת שלו, בשביל לחזור לקהילה שלו, שיחזור לעם ישראל.”

“הקהילה “שובו בנים” מחכה לו מאוד עם געגועים חזקים ועם הרגשה של יתומים, כי הוא התקווה שלנו, שהשם שלח לנו עם ישראל, וזה צריך לתת לכול יהודי את הכוח להתפלל עוד יותר חזק – שתהיה רפואה שלמה לאליעזר בן עטיא.”

Am Yisrael! In order for the Moshiach to be able to fight against the evildoers, he needs our prayers!

This gives him the strength to fight against the reshaim. And we need to be praying with tears, with a broken heart, that he will have a full recovery, in order for him to return to his shul, and to return to his kehilla, and to return to Am Yisrael.

The ‘Shuvu Banim’ kehilla is waiting for him, with great yearning, and with the feeling that they are orphans. For he is our hope, that Hashem sent to Am Yisrael.

And this should give every Jew the strength to pray with even more strength – that there should be a complete healing for Eliezer ben Ettia.

====

“עם ישראל, העולם מבולבל ואלים ומפוחד. גם מדינת ישראל במצב הזה. הדבר היחיד שיכול להציל אותנו עם ישראל, זה שאנחנו נעשה תשובה מלאה, שאנחנו נתקרב מאוד לקב”ה. שאנחנו נתפלל על הרב שלנו (הרב אליעזר ברלנד בן עטיא), שכ”כ דואג לנו יום ולילה ומתפלל על עם ישראל בדמעות.”

“הרב שלנו שבוכה יחד איתנו על המצב האישי שלנו, של כל אחד בנפרד, ועל המצב הכללי הקשה שלנו. השלטונות יודעים שהוא מסוכן להם, שהם לא יכולים להרוג אותו ולא יכולים לעצור אותו, אבל הם בכל אופן מנסים עם כל הכוחות שלהם להעלים אותו מהעולם הזה, חו”ש.”

Am Yisrael, the world is confused, violent and scared. Also the State of Israel is in this condition. The only thing that can save us, Am Yisrael, is if we make complete teshuva, and come very close to HaKadosh Baruch Hu. 

That we will pray with our Rav [HaRav Eliezer ben Ettia, Rav Berland], who so very much cares about us, day and night, and prays for Am Yisrael with tears.

Our Rav, who cries with us about our personal situation, about each person seperately, and also about our general hard situation. The government[s] know that he is dangerous for them, that thye can’t kill him, and they can’t stop him.

But nevertheless, they are still trying with all their strength, to remove him from this world, chas ‘v’ shalom.

====

“אבל, לא לדאוג עם ישראל, הוא באמת משיח בן דוד, הוא נשלח להציל את עם ישראל, אבל עם ישראל צריכים לרצות. אם כל עם ישראל יקח על עצמו לעשות תשובה עם כל הלב, אז בעתיד הקרוב נקבל משיח בשמחה וששון, אבל לא נראה שככה זה יהיה.”

But, don’t worry Am Yisrael! He is in truth ‘Moshiach ben David’, he was sent to rescue Am Yisrael, but Am Yisrael has to want [this]. 

If the whole of Am Yisrael will take it upon themselves to make teshuva with all their heart, then in then in the very near future, we will receive Moshiach with happiness and rejoicing.

But it doesn’t seem as though this is what’s going to be.

====

“אנחנו, כל אלה שמאמינים באמת בגדלות של הרב ברלנד ומתפללים עליו עם כל הכוח, אלה ישרדו בקלות.”
“העולם רועד, העולם בסכנה גדולה, המקום הכי בטוח בעולם זה ירושלים עיר הקודש. והיום המקום הכי קדוש – חוץ מהכותל.. – זה החומה השלישית, איפה שהרב ברלנד גר, וכשהוא יחזור הביתה נרגיש את האור הקדוש הרוחני שייצא משם ויאיר את כל ירושלים, ובסופו של דבר את כל ארץ ישראל, ואפילו מעבר לארץ ישראל, לגלות…”

We, all those who truly believe in the greatness of Rav Berland, and who pray for him with all our strength, these [people] will easily survive.

The world is shaking, the world is in tremendous danger. [But] the safest place in the world is Jerusalem, the holy city. And today, the holiest place – other than the Kotel – is HaHomah HaShlishit, where Rav Berland lives.

And when he returns home, we will feel the spiritual light of kedusha that will come out from there, and which will illuminate the whole of Jerusalem.

And ultimately, [which will light up] the whole of Eretz Yisrael, and even beyond Eretz Yisrael, to the diaspora.

====

“מה שאני כותב עכשיו זו אמת. אני יודע שהרבה יהודים לא רוצים להאמין בזה, אבל זו האמת. בעתיד הקרוב כל אחד, כל יהודי אמיתי, יאמין בזה, כי זו האמת…”

====

What I’m writing here is the truth. I know that many Jews don’t want to believe it, but this is the truth. In the near future, each person, each real Jew, will believe this.

Because it is the truth.

====

Read it for yourself, HERE.

And may God give us all the strength to finally leave all our ‘false messiahs’ and ‘false prophets’ behind, and to make the real teshuva required to get to geula, the sweet way.

====

UPDATE:

There is a prayer atzeret for the Rav this evening, November 24th, 2020, in Hevron, between 8-10pm.

====

I went over to the ravberland.com website, where I learned that Rav Eliezer Berland is back in jail.

Honestly?

That news totally depressed me.

Just when I was starting to feel a little bit of emancipation from the forces of evil, a little bit of ‘loosening’ of these whole, false COVID-1984 narrative, a little bit of hope – they put the Rav back in jail.

And they rushed him back to the Ayalon Prison a couple of short days after he’d finished having TWO major surgeries, both requiring general anesthetic.

It’s clear as can be that they are trying to kill the Rav, God forbid a million times.

====

So I read that and started to feel pretty down, but I still had Shabbat shopping to do, so I headed off to the Mahane Yehuda shuk.

There was a massive depressed vibe all around.

There were gangs of ‘school playground b*tches’ all over the streets around the shuk. These playground bullies grew up, and now have a job working for the Israeli border police.

Everywhere I walked there they were, yelling at random people that their masks weren’t up over their nose, totally covering their eyeballs.

These police bullies were fanned out in a ring of 4 or 5, all with their long fingernails wagging aggressively in people’s faces, as they stabbed their teudat zehut details into their tablets, as a precursor to fining them for breathing.

I was bullied a lot in school by gangs of girls exactly like these. That’s what taught me to fight back. Except now, the bullies are wearing police uniforms and are sanctioned by the State, so fighting back will get me in a whole bunch of trouble.

God, how much longer?

====

We parked the car in the underground carpark near the shuk, climbed out and headed off to the elevator, fumbling in pockets to find the mandatory mask. I had mine on, under my nose, by the time we got to the elevator stairwell, but my husband didn’t.

Some middle-aged ‘mask-hole’, with his pointless mask pulled all the way up to his eyebrows, immediately took my husband to task.

What are you thinking?!?!? Walking around like this without a mask?!?!?

Wait. Let me repunctuate that:

What?!?!? Are you thinking?!?!?

God forbid!!!

Don’t think!

Just follow the stupid, destructive dictates that clearly make no sense and are clearly serving another, nefarious, agenda to crash the economy as fast as possible, so we can all become modern-day serfs.

====

I’ve got to the stage that my dislike of these misguided ‘do-gooding’ bullying mask-holes is getting so intense, I’m really struggling to not totally passul them as human beings.

Go!!! Go get the vaccine ASAP, as soon as it’s available!!

All the mask-holes should get priority service, let them get five shots of the vaccine, even. They DEFINITELY deserve to have it!

====

We walked off into the shuk itself, and the whole atmosphere was totally depressed again.

Partially, it was the obvious, and obviously intimidating, police presence there. Some ‘tough guy’ psychopath motorbike cop had parked his big engine horizontally, across the shuk’s main external thoroughfare.

He stood there like some Borg footsoldier, in his threatening black uniform, helmet under his arm and glaring at all the passersby.

My husband whispered to me:

Do you think he practices that pose at home, in front of the mirror?

Without a doubt! I whispered back. Probably for hours and hours….

====

I couldn’t wait to get home.

I rushed around like a person possessed, to get back to the comfort of my ‘bubble’ back home, and away from the police b*tches, and the mask-holes, and the Terminator wannabes.

I turn on the PC to type, and I discover that the Jpost is back to proclaiming propaganda that we will be having another, totally unjustifiable, lockdown on Chanuka.

Of course we will.

They put the Rav back in prison, and so we are all following him back to jail.

====

What can we do? What can I do?

One thing I did was to head over to the ravberland.com site HERE, and to give a bit more money to help pay for the Rav’s lawyers. It’s a drop in the bucket, but it gave me a tiny bounce to know that I had contributed something, in some way, to the Rav’s cause.

I will try to pray more for the Rav to get out.

I will try to work on my emuna, that all this is actually for the good, and leading to a good place.

And I will try to work on my almost overwhelming temptation to passul all these people who are deliberately working for ‘bad’, and / or accidentally working for ‘bad’, by buying all the ‘COVID-1984’ propaganda, and continuing with all their self-deception and lies.

And apart from these things, I have nothing else I can do.

Yesterday, I went to pray at Honi haMeagal’s grave, near Tsfat.

Ever since the first lockdown, back in February 2020, my husband and I have been careful now to ‘go somewhere’ on a Sunday.

This week, we headed off to the grave of Honi haMeagal (Honi of the circle), on the side of Hatzor HaGalil, on the edge of the beautiful Biriya forest.

(We were actually trying to get to the graves of Abbaye and Rava, but couldn’t find them. That’s another story.)

====

Honi HaMeagal is the famous tanna of the 1st century who drew a circle on the ground and told God that he wasn’t going to step outside of it until God ended the drought in Israel and brought the rains.

There are different reactions to Honi’s actions in the Gemara, but his ‘brazenness’ with Hashem was jointly admired and censured by his fellow Sages. Rabbi Shimon ben Shetach, for example, initially wanted to place Honi in cherem, but seems to have changed his mind.

Read more HERE.

====

So anyway, we’re there at a tomb, and there’s a large group of chareidi people there, eating and praying.

My husband went into the catacombed cave / tomb on the mens’ side, and I decided to go and pray on the hill just above the tomb, which had an awesome view over the Galilee towards Tiberius.

It was twilight, and it was so beautiful.

And I have to admit to feeling a little down.

Downstairs, I heard one of the men telling someone else:

“There is no work now. Work is gomarnu, finished, because of the Corona. All we can do is pray, and hope God will have mercy.”

It reminded me that so many people out there are secretly running out of the money they need to live. But we still haven’t had the obvious ‘breakthrough’ required to turn things around.

====

So I sat there pouring my heart out to God, and feeling a little bit despairing about everything.

God, how is this ever going to get fixed? How is this ever going to turnaround? The forces of evil in the world seem to be holding all the cards. They have all the money, the press, the power, the political and business and ‘rabbinic’ connections.

How can we ever hope to overcome them?

====

Just then, some ‘cuddly-bear’ Sephardi chassid plugs a mike in below, and starts talking about the importance of reciting the Tikkun Haklali:

The Tikkun Haklali can fix everything, it can rectify everything! He boomed out.

Rebbe Nachman taught that the Tikkun Haklali was even created before the world.

Everything can be fixed, everything can be rectified! We just need to say the Tikkun Haklali every single day!!

I sat there electrified.

The chassid then started loudly reciting the Tikkun Haklali, and I went for a walk down the hill, towards the tomb of Rabbi Abba Hilkiya, Choni HaMeagal’s grandson, who famously tried to tikken the evil eye of David’s rebellious son, Absalom.

====

Honestly?

I’ve been finding it pretty hard to pray the last few months.

Over the last 5-6 years, I’d gotten into the habit of saying the Tikkun Haklali at least once a day, and often, three times a day. The last few months, I’ve barely said it.

I’ve run out of energy.

Maybe, some days, I’ve a little bit run out of hope that anything I can say or do will change anything….

But that chassid gave me motivation to pick things up, and to try and stick to saying the Tikkun Haklali at least once a day. Bezrat Hashem.

I started my way back up the hill, towards the chassid and Honi HaMeagal, who was now praying ma’ariv with such force, and such gusto, his voice was carrying all over the hills.

And when he said Shema, his voice broke and I saw him wipe away some tears.

Again, I was totally electrified.

====

Before he put down his mike, tho, he gave over a few more words of wisdom:

They want to break us. They want to divide the Jewish people up, and to have us hating each other – sinat chinam – for nothing. The answer to this is ahavat chinam – to love each other. 

We’re here at the kever of Honi HaMeagal, who knew that the secret of bringing shefa (abundance) down into the world was achdut. That each of us should stand in an unbroken circle, together, with our brothers.

And that from this achdut, all the shefa comes, and all the corona and all the balagan it’s bringing into the world will be broken, and our righteous Moshiach will soon be revealed and will redeem us.

====

I had chills down my back.

This guy was riffing off exactly the same theme that I’d written about here on the blog yesterday, that we Jews are all one family.

And that all the false divisions between us are wedges placed there by the forces of evil, to divide and conquer.

====

In the car back home, my husband told me that the chassid was one of Rabbi Berland’s guys.

How did you know? 

Because he was davening with some of the niggunim of the Rav, he replied.

Honestly?

I wasn’t surprised.

====

The Rav was meant to have a hearing last week, where the corrupt State of Israel was meant to have had their last chance to bring evidence that the Rav’s health is robust enough to keep him in prison, instead of releasing him to at least house arrest, until they bring their corrupt case to trial.

Instead, the State of Israel cancelled the hearing.

The reason they gave for cancelling was the Rav’s own deteriorating state of health.

Who can make this stuff up?

====

Two days ago, they put up a plea for people to help contribute some money to fight the Rav’s protracted battles with the State.

You can read more HERE, and also donate the 500 shekels they are asking every family to give, to help get the Rav out of prison.

Make no mistake, that the Rav’s battles are 100% our own.

Just as Covid 1984 started in earnest when he was falsely imprisoned, so we will all get out of prison / lockdown / the world of lies when Rav Berland is released.

And the Sitra Achra knows this, which is why it keeps delaying… and delaying… and delaying…

====

That same test has rolled around again.

It’s another ‘circle’ that needs completing, another ‘cycle’ that needs closure.

To be with the Rav, on the side of truth, on the side of justice, on the side of achdut and ahavat chinam – or to be against.

And I don’t know if there will be another chance given to pass it, before we move on to the next stage of this birur process.

Go HERE to donate to the Rav and do the mitzvah of pidyon shuvuim (releasing captives), and to read more about the appeal.

In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been consumed over the last few weeks with ‘getting to the bottom’ of what really happened in the Jewish community 200 years ago.

Literally every day for three weeks, I’ve sat at my computer for 10 hours a day, poring over genealogical tables, reading every description of Jewish life in Podolia and Belarus I could get my hands on, and generally praying long prayers that God should show me what He wants me to be doing with all the information that’s been turning up.

Yesterday, on Shabbat, I did another prayer-a-thon, to try to get some clarity on this issue in a whole bunch of different ways.

This morning, I woke up with an answer, a derech, to how to get at least some of the information ‘out there’ in a useful way, that will hopefully start to heal the divisions within the Jewish community, instead of exacerbating them further.

====

The Sitra Achra is so clever.

It’s been pursuing a strategy of ‘divide and conquer’ amongst us for thousands of years, already. We could say all this started with the Tsadukim, (Sadducees) – but we’d be totally wrong about that.

All this traces back to Korach, the first ‘tzaddik’ and ‘talmid chacham’ who put his ego ahead of what was best for the klal, and who fractured the Jewish people into different camps, for and against Moshe.

And it traces back to the spies, who slandered the land of Israel and then fractured the Jewish people into different camps for and against making Aliyah.

And even, it traces back to the 4/5 of the Jewish people who died in Egypt in the plague of darkness, because they lacked the emuna to really want to leave their exile.

====

I could probably keep going, all the way back through history, where each time there was divisions and hatred between different family members, until we arrive at Kayin and Hevel.

Kayin believed the world was too small for both of them, so he did away with the competition.

And now, it’s time to try to start fixing this problem, by welding things back together.

====

In the Jewish world of today, the Sitra Achra has done an excellent job of dividing us up smaller and smaller into warring factions.

Just some of the camps we’ve been shoved into are:

  • Religious vs secular
  • Left vs right
  • Ashkenazi vs Sephardi
  • Dati Leumi vs Haredi
  • Chassidic vs Litvish
  • Zionist vs anti-zionist
  • And of course, today we also have pro-vaccine and anti-vaccine, and pro-mask and anti-mask, and pro-Trump and anti-Trump….

The list goes on and on.

====

Over time, I’ve learnt that the people who are so mercilessly pushing their agendas, their viewpoints, onto other people are at least a touch mentally-ill.

I was in that space myself until a few years ago, trying to ‘force’ all my relatives outside of Israel to make Aliyah, and trying to ‘force’ my children into wearing socks all the way up to their toosik, and also trying to ‘force’ myself into all sorts of boxes that just didn’t fit, because I’d been brainwashed into thinking that’s what God wanted.

But I digress.

Let’s get back to the main point of today’s post.

====

In all my digging around in the genealogical tables, I realized a lot of interesting things.

One of the most interesting things that I realized is that so many of the groups listed above were and are being led by members of the same small set of families. Many of these families trace back – via multiple ancestors – to the Maharal of Prague and the Maharam of Padua, and beyond.

Way, way beyond.

One we realized just how ‘connected’ the Jewish people really are, by blood, by marriage, by history – then it becomes totally ridiculous to start pointing fingers at the other groups, and claiming there is something ‘wrong’ with them that isn’t also ‘wrong’ with us.

How can we accuse other groups of consisting solely of ‘erev Rav’ when we have the same parents and grandparents in common?

How can we claim that our gene pool, our yichus,  is somehow superior, when that same gene pool produced the biggest tzaddikim – and also the biggest gangsters, murderers and idolators?

(If you’re getting a bit stuck with this concept, pick up a copy of my book Unlocking the Secret of the Erev Rav, where I clearly set out how to really deal with the problem.)

====

Bad people, bad Jews, bad ‘Erev Rav’ are not just on the other side of the debate.

The Sitra Achra has been working so hard to make us think that this is the case, because when we can pretend to ourselves that only lefties are bad; or that only people who don’t vaccinate are bad; or that only Bibi is bad….

[Fill in the blank]

We are totally missing the whole point.

The point is to work on ourselves, our own bad middot, our own lack of emuna, our own issues, and to stop spending all our time pointing out the ‘bad’ in others.

To put this another way:

All of us contain bad. And God expects all of us to work on it, and uproot it.

And whenever someone is running around shrieking that only their group, their path, their derech contains ‘good’ – well.

They’re wrong.

====

So now, of all the many millions and billions of bits of information that I could share with you to make the point, I’ve settled on this:

The Vilna Gaon and the Alter Rebbe were very close family members.

This information has been so heavily and deliberately obscured (for reasons that I am choosing to not go into, at least for now) that you will probably have great difficulty in believing me.

But even with all the deliberate disinformation, and the deliberate changing of dates and names, and the conspiracy of silence that has grown up around this topic, last week, I finally figured enough out to tell you that they are definitely very close relatives.

====

Here’s how I think they are related.*

They are all members of the same Rivlin family.

Eliyahu Rivlin (the Vilna Gaon) was the father or possibly grandfather of Shlomo Zalman Rivlin, aka Schneur Zalman (the Alter Rebbe).

Shlomo Zalman Rivlin had a brother called Tzvi Hirsch Rivlin.

Tzvi Hirsch Rivlin’s daughter, Shifra, married Shlomo Zalman’s Rivlin’s son, Moshe.

But that’s not all.

====

Most of the ‘Vilna Gaon’s’ closest disciples appear to also have been his family members, his sons / grandsons.

Those people were also the very close relatives of the Chabad rebbes.

Many of those people – all the same members of the Rivlin family – moved to Eretz Israel.

Some came dressed as chassidim, some came dressed as Perushim, some came dressed as secular chalutznikim – and many of them became the ancestors of the main players in what became the modern State of Israel.

====

Clearly, I’m leaving out some big parts of this story.

Take a look at Joshua Zeitlin (whose alter ego in the ‘frum’ Jewish world was Natan Neta Notkin), the father-in-law of ‘Reb Alexander Sander’, a very popular figure in Chabad mythology, and also, Zeitlin is strangely connected on a very deep level to many of the Vilna Gaon’s students.

And many of those students are credited with being the ‘fathers’ of the haskalah movement.

Whoever has eyes to see, will see.

But let me end with this.

====

====

Did you know that Binyamin Netanyahu, whose family surname was originally ‘Milikovsky’, is a descendant of the Vilna Gaon?

See here for more information:

Nathan Milikowsky Netanyahu was born to Zvi in Krevo (Vilna area)
in 1875, a descendant of the Gaon from Vilna. He studied at the
Volozhin Yeshiva for 8 years and then became an orator preaching about Zionism. He migrated (with his children who were born in Warsaw) to Palestine in 1920 and served as headmaster of various Hebrew high schools in several towns before settling in Jerusalem as an official of the World Zionist Organization.

On his arrival in Palestine, Milikovsky changed the family name to Netanyahu (“Lord has given”). He was from the beginning a supporter of right-wing views in the Zionist movement, a tendency which deepened in the next generations of his closely knit family. He passed away in 1935.

* Many of these people have multiple names and multiple identities, depending on what ‘role’ they are playing.

Slowly, slowly, I’m unpicking it all. But clearly, there’s ample room for error here, especially with all the deliberate cover-up, so I am presenting this as a best guess for how they are related, and I will refine it as new information comes to light.

Let’s try and explain what ‘Sabbateanism’ and ‘Frankism’ really are.

Before we move forward (very cautiously…) in exploring what happened to all those many thousands of ‘pious orthodox Jews’ (including big rabbis) who were really secret Sabbateans, let’s first back up, and try to understand what it means to be a ‘Sabbatean’, or a ‘Frankist’, or whatever today’s branding of that very old ‘religion’ actually is.

A few months ago, I put together a crash course on the history of Shabtai Tzvi and Jacob Frank, which you can (and probably should…) go and read here:

====

This post isn’t going to rehash that more historical information.

Instead, it’s going to try to explain what Sabbatean / Frankists actually believe, and how their beliefs have trickled down into every layer of Jewish life, religious and secular – and why that’s such a problem for us today.

Ready?

Let’s kick off.

====

‘The problem’, primarily, is NOT that Shabtai Tzvi’s followers, and then Jacob Frank’s followers believed that these men were potential candidates for Moshiach.

It’s a principle of Jewish faith, enumerated by the Rambam, that we should expect the Moshiach to arrive every single moment, and there is no ‘sin’ involved – whatsoever – in thinking someone might be a potential candidate for Moshiach.

Of course, that candidate has to fit the criteria laid out by the Sages, to help us identify who the Moshiach really is.

If someone is a Moloch-worshipping, baby-slaughtering prince of black magic – for example – then even if they do happen to ‘descend from King David’, that’s still not enough to swing the vote to crown them Moshiach.

Or at least, it shouldn’t be.

====

So, the problem wasn’t so much that so many people in the Jewish community believed Shabtai Tzvi was ‘Moshiach’, at least initially, until he converted to Islam and then died without redeeming anyone.

The problem was, and always has been, with the ‘theology’ that the Sabbateans, and the Frankists and Donmeh after them, teach.

====

I know this stuff can be hard for a person to get their head around, so let’s go slowly.

Judaism is based upon the idea that when we fulfill Hashem’s will, i.e. by performing a positive ‘mitzvah’ or by avoiding a negative / evil action or transgression, that is how we rectify the world.

When the holy Arizal came along, he revealed way more kabbalah that explains this process of ‘raising the sparks of kedusha’ out of the evil shells, or klipot, that they had fallen into, when the original ‘vessels of light’ exploded, at the creation of the world.

Those slivers of sublime kedusha are now embedded in every layer of creation, and are hidden all over the place, in this concrete, materialistic world we currently inhabit.

Every time we do a mitzvah – defined as performing God’s will – we raise up more of these sparks of holiness, and give them back to God. When this process is complete, and all the sparks have been lifted out of the side of evil and put back in their rightful place, the world will be fully rectified, and geula will occur.

This is the basic idea, clearly very simplified.

====

To keep this real, let’s give a few examples.

When you say a blessing on that apple, you are lifting the spark of kedusha out of its materialistic shell, and returning it to God in a rectified state.

Similarly, when you avoid getting angry at really annoying and frustrating people and situations, you are also rectifying some of the sparks of kedusha located in your own body / soul combo, and doing the job of purifying your neshama.

Every single second we are alive on this earth, we have the chance and the choice to ‘rectify sparks of holiness’ in this way – or to do the opposite.

====

There are two ways we can do the opposite of building the world, and rectifying the fallen sparks.

One way is by NOT doing positive commandments, like laying tefillin, or reciting brachot on the food we eat.

While this is not contributing anything to building and rectifying the world – which is basically the whole point of being alive – this ‘absence of good’ is still the lesser evil.

Because the second way of doing the opposite of rectifying the sparks is:

By transgressing the negative commandments and deliberately doing exactly the opposite of how Hashem told us we can fix the world.

====

And this is where we segue back in, to our discussion of what ‘Sabbateanism’ and ‘Frankism’ really stands for.

As we learned in the post about the ‘bad Baal Shem’ of London, Samuel Chaim Falk, yimach shmo, these people were not irreligious, or ‘secular’. Anything but.

They were deeply religious, often very ascetic and spent their whole life in pursuit of ‘spirituality’.

It’s just that their ‘spirituality’ was all coming from the dark side.

As I’ve discussed before, they took the notion that the Moshiach will only come when the world it ‘totally good’ or ‘totally bad’ literally, and decided that the world could never be ‘totally good’.

So, if they really wanted Moshiach (and man, they really wanted Moshiach now!!!, whatever else you can say about them) – they decided that the only way to get him to come was by making the world ‘totally bad’.

====

All the s*xual immorality that you find by both the original Sabbateans, and also within their splinter groups of the (externally Muslim) Donmeh in Turkey, and the (externally Catholic) Frankists in the West and Israel, is not an accident.

The Sabbateans and Frankists were masters of kabbalah, (which don’t forget, is the basis of all black magic in the world, because it’s truly the ‘recipe’ that Hashem used to create the physical world.)

They understood way more than most of us, the tremendous power of evil that could be harnessed through misusing the act of procreation.

That’s why ‘sacred orgies’ were such a big part of Sabbateanism and Frankism.

====

That’s why they went out of their way to engage in forbidden relationships of the very worst sort, including transgressing the prohibition of incest.

That’s why Frankists (and also Freemasons) were known to deliberately engage in acts of ‘auto-eroticism’ before any big festival, or project, or ‘spiritual service’ they were undertaking.

It wasn’t an accident or a mistake.

It was totally deliberate, to ‘capture’ the power of the evil created by their misuse of the procreative act, and use it to juice up all their other evil designs.

====

So, the main problem wasn’t that people were ‘worshipping’ Shabtai Tzvi or Frank as the messiah (although we’ll discuss more about that in a moment.)

The main problem was that essentially, these ‘secret Sabbateans’ and ‘secret Frankists’ were effectively binding themselves to the side of evil, in the most extreme way.

====

Remember, we are dealing with arch-hypocrites here.

They were and are the epitome of ‘two faced’.

They often present a very makpid, orthodox religious face to the outside world, and judge other people oh so very harshly for their minor infractions and failings, while all the time pretending to be ‘perfect and infallible’ themselves – because behind closed doors, they are doing whatever the heck they please.

====

So now we hopefully understand that Sabbateanism / Frankism was about the worship of evil, and not just about some case of ‘mistaken identity’ about who was going to be the Moshiach, let’s return to the historical side of things, to lay out what was actually going on.

And how that’s still affecting us today.

First, here’s some basic tenets of what I’ll call ‘Sabbateanism theology’.

As we already learned, Sabbateans hold that you rectify the world by performing acts of evil, and deliberately going against the explicit will of Hashem.

They also hold that as soon the ‘Messianic Era’ began, the ‘upside-down world’ was turned the other way up, which meant that every ‘Thou shalt not’ became a positive commandment.

In their warped ideology, it was now a mitzvah to kill, rob, steal, covet, and commit adultery and incest.

That’s why they used to have a ‘blessing’ lehavdil of: “Blessed art thou, L–d, who cancels and allows the prohibitions.”

Clearly, it wasn’t Hashem who they were blessing by saying this.

So who was it?

====

Sabbateans also taught that the soul of Shabtai Tzvi, their false messiah, would come back in one of two ways to ‘complete the job of redemption’.

(Yes I know. We’ve heard that before somewhere, haven’t we?)

Either, Shabtai Tzvi would have a ‘second coming’, where he would literally rise from the dead, or come out of the cave he was hiding in, or beam down from the spaceship he’d flown off to gan eden in (maybe together with Elvis Presley, who knows?).

OR

The specific soul of Shabtai Tzvi would ‘reincarnate’ into one of his followers, as part of the secret of ibbur, and complete the job that way.

====

Part of the reason it’s so hard to pin down some of the errors in Sabbatean theology, is because so much of it was wrapped around a kernel of truth, from authentic and holy yiddishkeit.

For example, on the side of kedusha we know that there is a special type of soul referred to as the ‘Tzaddik yesod olam’ – ‘Tzaddik, the foundation of the world.’

There is only one of these souls to be found in every generation, and that soul is the soul of the potential soul of the Moshiach.

Pay close attention, because I’m going to try to explain the subtle, but hugely meaningful difference between genuine Jewish belief and Sabbatean / Frankist heresy here.

The Zohar teaches us that this soul of the redeemer, aka the Moshiach of the generation, contains all the soul sparks of the entire nation of Israel.

Every single one of us from big to small, and from left to right, and even from ‘most evil’ to ‘most holy’ is included in this soul of the Moshiach.

That’s why each of us has a very real role to play in ‘bringing Moshiach’, because the more we work on rectifying ourselves, and particularly the bad middot, the more we are bringing that spirit of Moshiach down into the world.

====

This is not what the Sabbateans and Frankists (and heck, let’s include the xtians here too, as it’s effectively the same problem) believe.

They believe that *one particular person*, one particular soul, is *the* Moshiach.

And that *particular person* just keeps coming back and reincarnating in a different body, or even ‘taking over the body’ of a different person, in something that sounds akin to demonic possession, until they get the job done.

====

It’s a subtle difference, but it literally makes all the difference in the world:

‘Moshiach’ as the ‘mirror’ / composite soul of the whole of the Jewish people – which means we all have our part to play to get to geula – or ‘Moshiach’ as one specific guy who comes and ‘fixes’ everyone else.

It’s also the difference between a false Moshiach that’s ‘branded’ as belonging to a particular group, or sect, and a Moshiach that represents the entirety of the Jewish people.

====

That’s why after Shabtai Tzvi died, there was a massive power struggle between his closest followers to try to claim that they were his true incarnation.

Whoever could convince the massive group of followers that they were ‘Shabtai Tzvi #2’ would inherit the power base, the followers, the influence, the power, the money.

That’s why there were so many different ‘false prophets’ of Sabbateanism after Shabtai Tzvi died, and that’s why there were so very many ‘false messiahs’ in the 18th century, when his followers had finally given up on the idea of the ‘second coming of Shabtai Tzvi’, and moved over to the second model described above.

So, when Jacob Frank, yimach shmo, turned up on the scene, he wasn’t trying to create a ‘new religion’.

All he did, at least initially, was to stake his claim as being that generations ‘incarnation’ of Shabtai Tzvi.

====

As I’ve mentioned, there were huge pockets of secret Sabbateans all over Turkey, Podolia, Italy, Amsterdam and Germany, at this time. Anywhere you had Jewish communities, you also had large groups of Sabbateans.

Some communities, like Rohatyn, Zolkiew, Podholice and Furth (to give just some examples) were known to be almost entirely ‘Sabbatian’ in the 18th century.

Externally, these were still communities of ostensibly ‘orthodox’ Jews.

They still had ‘Av Beis Dins’, and synagogues, and shochets, and yeshivas. But behind closed doors?

There was a poisonous root of ‘anti-Torah’ heresy growing and spreading.

====

Before I learned all this, it always amazed me how someone like Jacob Frank could show up and convince tens of thousands of orthodox Jews – including big rabbis like the distinguished ‘Shor family’– to drop their religion so quickly, and publically convert to Catholicism.

Once I realized that Frank was just the latest in a very long line of ‘false messiahs’ to successfully inherit the ‘crown’ of Shabtai Tzvi, it all made way more sense.

====

So now, let’s end this post with some examples of specific ‘Frankist’ theology, that will hopefully help you to detect some of those ‘Frankist’ influences that are currently all around us, in the Jewish world.

Shabtai Tzvi gave us ‘doing bad’ as a mitzvah, and deliberately perverting the procreative act.

His doctrine is almost certainly behind all the child abuse scandals plaguing both the Catholic church and the ultra-orthodox Jewish community.

====

Frank added to this:

  • Literally worshipping ‘the messiah’ as though he is god (deliberate small ‘g’ here, to respect the Almighty).
  • Sanctifying and encouraging incest (which went one step further than Shabtai Tzvi).
  • Raising religious hypocrisy to an artform, where his followers would ‘pretend’ to be devout orthodox Jews, and later, devout Catholics, while secretly working to subvert from within.
  • Actively promoting assimilation within the wider community – (in later years he wrote about his desire to create a ‘one world religion’ to encompass Judaism, xtianity and Islam. Does that sound familiar?)
  • Deliberately going against even external compliance with Torah law (but only to the degree accepted by the doctrinal norms of the Catholic church, which is why he kept his s*xual immorality / nihilism and dark occultic practices more hidden.)
  • Actively promoting settlement in Israel, to await ‘the final redemption’.

====

This last one included the following elements:

  • Actively promoting Jews living on what was called ‘agricultural settlements’, which became the forerunner of the kibbutzim in the State of Israel.
  • Actively encouraging Jews to become soldiers.

Frank himself had an army, and encouraged his followers to engage in military training.

And if you look into who was encouraging ‘agricultural settlements’, both in Russia, the new world and Eretz Israel, you will start to identity many of the ‘secret Frankists’ who have so far escaped detection.

====

I know, this is big, heavy stuff, isn’t it?

I know.

This morning, I was talking to God again about what He really wants from me here, because God forbid I should do anything He doesn’t want me to do.

I’m very happy to leave this can of worms untouched, if that’s what He wants.

But the message I keep getting – loudly – is continue!!!!!

These secret Frankists have been holding the rest of the Jewish world hostage for way too long already, and delaying redemption.

And from what I can tell, God’s finally had enough of it.

TBC

====

UPDATE:

I got this comment, which is making a fair point:

I think it’s important to point out that most of the ‘secret sabbateans’ today probably never heard of Jacob Frank and vaguely know that Shabtai Tzvi was some false messiah. However, they are still continuing in their footsteps by believing and promoting the same ideas.

====

The research I’m doing into the Frankists is taking me down some very strange paths in Jewish history.

I started this project off because I was trying to get to the bottom of who is really behind the persecution of Rabbi Eliezer Berland, at least in Israel.

Initially, I thought it was a bunch of leftists, reform-minded Jews from America.

Then, it widened out to include a bunch of Torah-hating non-Jews who probably worship Moloch (and control most of the world….)

And now, strangest of all, I seem to be dealing with a bunch of externally ‘orthodox’ Jews whose belief system, internally, is anything but orthodox.

====

This is a massive project, and I’m very wary of putting conclusions ‘out there’ prematurely, or even at all.

I’m not drawing conclusions yet because I still have no firm idea where all this is leading and also, because I’m discovering that so many of the famous names I’m researching often had different personas, or alter egos, that went by a totally different name.

And trying to pin it all down, and to really make sense of it all, is extremely challenging.

That said, there a few tidbits that I want to float past you, as the more of us who engage with this process on the soul level, the faster the birur of what is really going on will happen.

So first, here’s the thesis that seems to be unfolding:

====

The 18th century was chock-full of ‘false messiahs’ and ‘prophets of Shabtai Tzvi’ who were either predicting that he would rise from the dead, OR who developed a doctrine that the soul of Shabtai Tzvi would reincarnate in the present generation, to lead the faithful forward.

Examples of the first route are Yehudah Leib ben Ya‘akov Holleschau, the false prophet of Prosschitz, who ‘prophesized’ that Shabtai Tzvi would rise from the dead in 1706.

(As a side note, Yehuda HeHassid lead his contingent of 1,500 (sabbatian) Jews to the holy land in 1700, as part of the attempt to be ‘ready’ for when Shabtai Tzvi showed up again.)

Yehuda Leib wasn’t excommunicated for publically teaching his beliefs by the then Rabbi of Prosschitz, Rabbi Meir Eisenstadt.

Why not?

Because Rabbi Meir Eisenstadt (the ‘Meirot Panim’) was one of his followers.

That’s an incredible piece of information, just let that sink in.

And do you know who else was one of Yehuda Leib’s students? Rabbi Yonatan Eybshutz.

====

So, 1706 came and went, and when Shabtai Tzvi didn’t show up as promised – only then did Rabbi Meir turn against Yehuda Leib, banish him from Prossnitz and excommunicate him.

====

An example of the second approach is Rabbi Meir Eisenstadt’s own brother, Mordechai Mokiach, who threw his hat in the ring as ‘the reincarnation’ of Shabtai Tzvi.

Mordechai Mokiach also wasn’t ‘excommunicated’ for Sabbatean beliefs. Quite the opposite – he was lauded, summoned to Italy by the Jewish community there, and also became a ‘famous personality’ in other communities, too.

Here’s a little about how Mordechai Mokiach (Eisenstadt, brother of Rabbi Meir Eisenstadt) was connected to another member of the Eybshutz family, Ber Eybshutz (also known as Ber Perlhefter):

(From HERE🙂

In the late 1670s and early 1680s, Ber became deeply involved in the Sabbatean movement as a maggid in the circle of Abraham ben Michael Rovigo (c. 1650–1713) in Modena.

He was instrumental in shaping the moderate wing of the movement after the death of Sabbetai Zevi. Though he initially pinned hopes on Mordecai of Eisenstadt (1650–1729) as a second redeeming figure, he later became disappointed and renounced his support.

His interest in the movement may have attracted the attention of the noted Christian Hebraist Johann Christoph Wagenseil (1633–1705), Professor of Hebraica at the Lutheran University at Altdorf, who employed Jews and converts as translators and informants in his Hebraist enterprise.

====

Ber Eybshutz was a famous rabbi of his time.

Nobody excommunicated him.

Also, there is something just so strange going on with the geni.com website for all these famous people with Sabbatian links. Their family records are deliberately altered, dates are changed or omitted to disrupt the chain of descent, family members are scrubbed off, false spouses and siblings are assigned – all to make it so much harder to work out who these people really were.

And who their descendants really are today.

So I’m still working on trying to figure out how ‘Ber Eybshutz’ relates to Jonathan Eybshutz, and many of his other family members who were part of the continuing cult of Shabtai Tzvi within the orthodox Jewish community.

As for Mordechai Mokiach, his descendants changed their names to ‘Pick’ and ‘Berlin’, and quickly became leading figures back in the orthodox Jewish community again.

====

Here’s some more strange things, that I’m trying to fit into the whole picture of what was really going on, back in the 18th century.

Did you know that Yonatan Eybshutz and the Vilna Gaon (!) were good friends? They were such ‘good friends’ that Yonatan Eybshutz even wrote to the Vilna Gaon, asking him to publicly support him in his argument with Yaacov Emden, over the infamous ‘Sabbatian amulets’?

This from Wikipedia:

In 1755, when the Gaon was thirty-five, Rabbi Jonathan Eybeschütz, then sixty-five years old, applied to him for an examination of and decision concerning his amulets, which were a subject of discord between himself and Rabbi Jacob Emden.

The Vilna Gaon, in a letter to Eybeschütz, stated his support of Eybeschutz but that he did not believe that words coming from a stranger like himself, who had not even the advantage of old age, would be of any weight with the contending parties.

====

Recently, notarised copies of those infamous amulets turned up and were analysed by scholars.

They showed that they were Sabbatian in nature. Here’s the text:

“In the name of [YKVK] the God of Israel, who dwelleth in the beauty of His strength, the God of His anointed one Shabbethai Ẓebi, who with the breath of His lips shall slay the wicked, I decree and command that no evil spirit plague, or accident harm, the bearer of this amulet.”

So, how can it be that the Vilna Gaon wrote a letter siding with his ‘good friend’ Yonatan Eybshutz?

Increasingly, the idea is taking shape that most of the orthodox Jewish community of the 18th century – and especially the rabbis – was ‘Sabbatian’ to some degree or other.

Which is profoundly shocking, at least to me.

====

I’m currently working on trying to figure out who Jacob Frank really was, in terms of his family connections, who his descendants married, and where the descendants of these other Sabbatean ‘prophets’ ended up.

I’ve already made some connections with Lea Golda Broda, the grand-daughter of Avraham Broda / Rovigo, the author of the Eshel Avraham, that are truly shocking.

But before I can really get to the bottom of this, my research keeps spiralling out further and further, into more unanswered questions about some of the biggest names in the Jewish world.

====

Does it make sense, to you, that the Vilna Gaon would apparently ‘excommunicate’ the chassidim of the Rabbi of Mezritch and Chabad’s Alter Rebbe, while leaving obviously Sabbatean rabbis like Yonatan Eybshutz alone – and even writing them letters of support?

Does it make sense that Yonatan Eybshutz’s reputation would be so ‘whitewashed’ and revered, even in our days, when he was so obviously and clearly a Sabbatean?

Why is it, that the family trees of so many of our ‘big’ rabbis are so deliberately convoluted, mixed up and deceptive?

How can it be, that the Mittler Rebbe of Chabad had two daughters both called ‘Sarah’, and also two daughters with the name ‘Chaya’, and no-one thought that was odd?

How can it be, that apart from the descendants of Shneur Zalman, there is no-one else listed under the family tree of ‘Betzalel Lowe’, who was apparently the son of the Maharal of Prague? Everyone else on his tree apparently died young, had no children, or is unnamed.

Which is so very strange, because the family trees of ‘Betzalel Lowe’s’ brothers and sisters literally spew on for page after millionth page, in all their glorious detail.

====

So as you can see, I am currently grappling with way more questions than I have concrete answers.

But I can tell you one thing for sure:

There is some sort of massive cover up going on here, that spans every part of the Jewish world, orthodox and unorthodox, Zionist and ‘anti’ Zionist, Litvak and Chassidut, ‘Israeli’ and ‘Chutzniki’.

And when (if….) I get to the bottom of what’s really going on here, I will finally have the answer to who has been persecuting Rabbi Berland – and the answer to many other ‘big mysteries’ of the Jewish community, too.

When I was researching the family tree of Moses Montefiore, I stumbled across a mind-blowing find.

I’m still in the middle of trying to piece everything together, but I find it’s helpful to ‘clear out some space’, mentally, by sharing with you on the blog where I’ve got to with all this, so more new information can percolate through, and more clarity can come to this process.

So, here’s what happened:

====

After I figured out (in THIS blog post) that Montefiore was a secret Sabbatian freemason – because otherwise, he and his kin would never have married so freely with the Frankist Rothschild family – I decided to try and trace back some of his ancestry, to see what that would turn up.

When it comes to the Rothschilds, and other of the more obvious Ashkenazi Frankist ‘banking’ families, it’s very hard to trace the ancestry accurately, because so much deliberate disinformation has been sown.

That said, I’ve managed to make some headway there, too, and that maybe will be a post for another time.

But I figured that the Sephardi sabbateans have been much less under the public eye, and so their family trees will still be much more ‘honest’, as no-one expected a reformed psycho with OCD tendencies to spend weeks trying to figure out who the great-grand-daddy of Moses Montefiore really was.

Ha!

====

So, I hit the first obstacle when Moses Montefiore wasn’t actually listed under his father’s family tree, on geni.com – and I couldn’t find him other places, either.

Immediately, the red flag went up that ‘something’ was being hidden away here, so I started clicking on every other family member, tracing them backwards and forwards, to see ‘who else’ they were connected to, who they married, who their ancestors and descendants were.

Very quickly, I hit something initially very strange:

So many of Montefiore’s close relatives were married to, or otherwise connected to, what appeared to be a bunch of Irish catholics:

====

====

Like this guy, Moses Augustus Montefiore – Sir Moses Montefiore’s first cousin – is married to a ‘Mary Kissane’.

Hmmm.

For a day or two, I didn’t know what to do with that info, so I sat on it.

Then I resumed my research, and that’s when I turned up the following, stunning, chain of information, that began like this:

====

Jacob Frank was married twice.

His first wife was Chaya (Josefa) Falkon, (married in 1740) daughter of the ‘bad’ Baal Shem of London, called Samuel Falk. As well as being a close confidant of the Victorian Rothschilds, Goldschmidts and other Jewish-Frankist bankers in London, Falk was also big time into black magic.

====

Samuel Falk had to leave Podolia (what is today Poland / Ukraine) because he’d been charged with practicing witchcraft, and was about to be burnt at the stake.

Instead, his Sabbatean / black kabbalah connections helped him to escape to London, where he became a ‘respectable rabbi and kabbalist’ – whose daughter just happened to marry the false messiah Jacob Frank.

====

If you want to know why you never knew this before, the answer is simple:

These people’s descendants and co-religionists are still running the show today, in all areas of the Jewish world, which is why they have gone to such great lengths to expunge all these links and evidence from the ‘official’ history of the Jewish people.

But with God’s help, I’m piecing it back together, and sharing it with you.

====

So, Frank and Ms Falk Junior have six daughters, each of whom has a ‘Jewish’ persona and name, and each whom has a ‘catholic’ persona and name.

The six daughters are called:

  1. Ruth Dinah Frank (Franconia)
  2. Rivka Shoshana (baptised Anna Rosa) Jacob
  3. Miriam Chana (baptised Maria Anna) Frank
  4. Esther Matrona Frank (Franconia)
  5. Leah Golda Frank
  6. Sarah Judith Jacob

====

Ms Falk Junior dies in 1751, and Frank remarries a woman named Hannah Cohen.

He has his notorious daughter Eva Frank[1] in 1754, plus at least two more sons named Joseph and Roche[2].

(Remember, the Frankists were into immorality in a big way, so who really knows how many illegitimate children Jacob Frank really had, and just how many of his ‘official’ children were actually mamzerim, Hashem yishmor.)

====

Jacob Frank’s last daughter, Sarah, married someone called ‘Francis Rogers Kissane’ – who comes from a Jewish-catholic family of Spanish and Portuguese descent.

====

====

The Kissane / Kassin / Kessin family is very interesting.

They have tentacles all over the Jewish world, and if you look at their family tree, you can see that various members would pretend to be ‘catholic’ in countries like Ireland, but would sometimes (and simultaneously!) also be ‘chief rabbis’ in places like Aleppo, Syria, and Baghdad.

It’s truly mind-blowing.

====

But let’s stay on track.

The main point here is that if you trace Francis Rogers Kissane’s genealogy back, you get to a man called Ephraim Kassin, who was born in 1590 in Aleppo, Syria. Kassin was the ancestor of Nicolas Rodriguez Galvan, a Jewish catholic, who had at least two daughters.

====

One of those daughters, Maria Rodriguez, became the mother of Frances Rogers Kissane in Ireland, who became the husband of Jacob Frank’s daughter, Sarah.

And the other one, Juana Rodriguez, married Jacob Montefiore, the paternal uncle of Moses Montefiore:

====

====

Most of the genealogy links showing these connections have been carefully scrubbed from the internet, but even the titles of the pages that are now no longer ‘found’, are revealing;

https://www.ancestry.ca/genealogy/records/juana-judith-chana-galvan-montefiore-rodriguez-24-21k0phl

Juana’s surname was then magically changed from Rodriguez Galvan to the more English ‘Levi Barrow’.

====

I know this is confusing (believe me, I know!).

So let me try and break it down in simple terms:

> Sir Moses Montefiore’s paternal uncle married Juana Rodriguez.

> Her sister Maria was the mother of Frances Roger Kissane (another crypto Jewish Catholic) in Ireland.

> Frances Roger Kissane married Sarah, Jacob Frank’s daughter.

> And then Juana’s son Moses Augustus Montefiore – first cousin of Sir Moses Montefiore – married Mary Kissane, the daughter of one ‘Captain John Walsh’:

====

====

The parents of ‘Captain John Walsh[3]’ were also Frankist / Catholic Jews.

John Walsh’s father is called ‘Frederick Walsh’ – and his father was Yehuda Wolowski Schorr of Rogatin, one of Jacob Franks most loyal devotees.

The Schorr family also crops up in connection with a lot of Zionist / State of Israel stuff, and I will try to do a post about that another time.

====

To sum up: the Montefiore family have multiple links marrying Frankists, including actual descendants  of Jacob Frank himself.

And all of this has been carefully hidden from the Jewish public, for reasons I will explain as we go along, in future posts.

But all this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Here’s the takeaway message from this post:

Even before Shabtai Tzvi and Jacob Frank showed up, there were large numbers of ‘crypto Jews’ of Spanish and Portuguese origin – Jews who were practicing Catholics, and who had been immersed in Catholic beliefs and society for at least two centuries preceding Shabtai Tzvi.

Many of these marranos were looking to create some sort of ‘synthesis’ between Christianity and Judaism, to accommodate their own (now warped….) beliefs, and the difficulties they had in resuming a truly orthodox life, which adhered to even basic commandments like circumcision and keeping kosher.

These people were flung all over the globe – literally – and had a very strong ‘crypto Jewish’ network operating, particularly along maritime trade routes.

Many of them were also located in German / Ashkenazi communities, and in Amsterdam, Holland, where they often resumed an openly Jewish lifestyle (despite their secret heretical tendencies).

Many of them were big into kabbalah.

And many of the big names in the Ashkenazi ‘orthodox’ religious world are directly related to families who trace back to these conversos, and to two ‘big rabbis’ of the middle ages, in particular.

====

Shabtai Tzvi was backed from the start by these people, who were looking for a ‘figurehead’ to try to get their reformed Judeo-xtian new religion officially accepted amongst the Jews.

Then when he converted to Islam and then died, Jacob Frank became their next ‘figurehead’, in the 18th century.

That’s part of why Sabbateanism and Frankism spread so very far, so very fast in the Jewish community

I have even more secrets to share with you in future posts, BH.

And if you think what I shared here is astounding, I promise you that what I’m researching now is even more mind-boggling and disturbing.

But it all needs to come out, and with God’s help, it will

FOOTNOTES:

[1] From the time Eva was born, Frank started teaching that Moshiach would be a woman – i.e. his daughter – and started up a whole new aspect of his cult, stressing the feminine aspect of the divine.

This obsession with ‘women’s lib’ is a key indication you are dealing with Frankist doctrine in the modern Jewish world.

Frank himself also claimed that Eva was really the daughter of the Russian Monarch, Catherine the Great, born as a result of his affair with her. More on this another time.

[2] That given name is another interesting ‘clue’ pointing to more links between the ‘catholic Jews’ and the European ruling classes. More on this in a future post.

[3] Captain John Walsh’s sister was a woman named Charlotte Sarah Jane Grimstead.

As well as being a descendant of the Frankist acolyte Yehuda Wolowski Schorr, she was also the mother of Charlotte Lyon-Bowes, whose son, Claude Bowes-Lyon is the paternal grandfather of the present Queen of Britain, Elizabeth II.

Yes, the British royal family have Jewish blood, and are directly connected to Frankists.

Yesterday, I spoke to someone whose mother passed away in Israel last week.

She’d had cancer for three years, and had been in the terminal stage of the illness for the last year.

She died of a heart-attack nine days ago, after enduring tremendous amounts of medical ‘care’ (and suffering…).

The doctors pressured the family to let them write on the death certificate that their mother had died from Covid-19. 

They explained how it would help the hospital, if they agreed, because the government would pay them more money, if they could show they were ‘helping’ Covid-19 patients (who then died….).

The family refused.

But you have to wonder: how many other people have agreed?

====

Today on the Arutz 7 website (that seems to occasionally still have some real news, hidden amongst all the obvious propaganda), I read this headline:

‘Coronavirus patients are being neglected – and are dying’

Doctors at hospital in central Israel say coronavirus patients are being neglected or not properly treated by nurses.

====

The story went on to explain how a small group of doctors at the Wolfson hospital had again raised a formal complaint against management, as they were shocked at the total neglect ‘Covid 19’ patients were experiencing on their ward.

The complaint went on to say that they were certain that patients had even died from the neglect (and NOT from the Covid 19 that undoubtedly was written on their death certificates):

“Not a day goes by that you can’t go into the coronavirus ward and hear a patient screaming and crying for hours while shaking with cold and asking for a blanket, or because a patient was left in an uncomfortable position and needs help to be put in another position.”

====
I am so proud of those nine doctors, who decided that standing up for the truth, and for the welfare of their patients, was more important than protecting their own jobs and pay cheques.
There is no doubt, that they are going to get an extreme amount of ‘push back’  from the powers-that-be for their courageous action.
But their actions – and the action of the person whose mother died, above – is pointing to how we can all get out of this Coronavirus Hell that’s engulfed the whole world. And here’s what it boils down to:

Stop co-operating with evil.

====

This whole Covid-1984 plandemic is just a test from Hashem.

He’s sitting there watching how we’re going to react to all the lies being spread online, all the bullying and violence being doled out to various members of our community – especially in the chareidi areas – all the fearmongering and anti-emuna propaganda being pumped out 24/7.

He’s watching to see if we’re going to co-operate with evil, and to support it – or if we’re going to stand up for what’s right, and what’s true and what’s holy, even if it’s inconvenient, scary or embarrassing.

And at whatever level we find ourselves at, we are all being asked to pass that test.

====

Friday morning, I went to my local health food shop, as I’ve been doing for the last nine months, with my mask under my nose.

When it’s been more ‘relaxed’ the last few months, I’ve also gone in there with it under my chin, but right now, as another wave of government-stoked ‘mask propaganda’ has been blitzed all over the news, it seems people are more into wearing their masks again.

So, I went in with it over my mouth, but under my nose.

And I went to the till to pay.

And the cashier on the till (who I know has some severe bad middot issues, from previous interactions with her) barked at me:

Put your mask up over your nose!!!!

There was something in her bullying tone that totally made me bristle.

I don’t want to, I told her.

So she barked at me again, this time in English:

PUT DA MASK ON YOUR NOSE!!!!

And this time, I got so angry – that I left all my purchases there, and walked out the shop.

Man, I love my kombucha for Shabbat.

But enough is enough.

====

In the car on the way home, I started to ponder what would happen, if more of us would decide that we’re not going to co-operate with evil?

What would happen, if we stopped blindly following all these government diktats? If we stopped dobbing in our neighbors for having small weddings in the own back gardens? If we decided to wear the mask as little as we can, and ‘broke the rules’ anyway we could, without risking a confrontation with the police?

How would things look, if each time the lying media wrote another anti-semitic piece attacking the chareidim for ‘non-compliance’ that we would publically laud those chareidim in the comments section, and praise them to each other, instead of piling on the abuse and blame?

What if we started to ‘push back’, by refusing to play their games? And by making a big fuss when do-gooding bullies started telling us to ‘put our masks up’?

Because believe me, no-one likes to be on the receiving end of verbal abuse, not even the bullies like my woman on the till.

However much it bothered me, I guarantee, our interaction also really bothered her.

Next time, she will think twice before barking orders at her customers like an ober-fuehrer.

====

Depending on your job, your role, your place in society, you may have more ways of ‘pushing back’, and refusing to co-operate with evil.

If you work in a hospital, or in government, you will have more of the information you need to start blowing the whistle on what’s really going on here.

If you write, you’ll be able to share more of the information and the truth.

If you pray, you’ll be able to ask God to open more people’s eyes, and to give us all the emuna and courage we need to stand up for the truth, and for justice.

And each of us can choose to not participate in ‘contact tracing’, and in downloading ‘Covid apps’, and in jumping through all the rest of their ‘Covid-1984’ hoops.

Each of us has our test right now.

And God is watching carefully, to see how we’ll respond.

====

UPDATE:

Readers are sending me some good things to include here – thank you!

First, an unverified report from someone who has a family member working in a hospital in Israel, who was told that:

“Hospitals that report more covid patients get a ton more budget for the hospital, and also get a ton of medical supplies for free. She said the hospital where she worked was suddenly ordering tons and tons of supplies because it’s all free if it’s for “corona patients,” so apparently the hospitals could definitely have a financial interest to report more corona patients.

It means more money and free supplies for the hospitals.”

====

If any whistleblowers out there want me to upload more information on this subject, send it along via the contact form!

====

Then, there is this open letter about how lockdowns are an awful response to even a real plandemic, let alone a fake one, from the World Doctors Alliance, which contains a TON of really good information:

(I’m spelling out the links in full now, as my links in words keep getting ‘broken’ with unceasing regularity.)

https://worlddoctorsalliance.com/?fbclid=IwAR3chbAHLOjhmhzkM4TJOMlMDO5bFZZzYLuJHemBkXSaFgIkPcC7dOjpZTI

Here’s just a couple of snippets:

“The medical profession have not been allowed to let the public know that covid wards have been empty for months, nor that covid deaths have reached an all-time low for months, and this has unnecessarily added to the public’s distress and anxiety.

“The [UK] government’s own report estimates that some two hundred thousand (200,000) people will die as a direct result of lockdown – not the virus [which so far has ‘killed’ 42,000 people in the UK – less than the flu]. Hospitals being closed, suicide and poverty will result in more deaths than the virus.”

====

And then another reader sent me a link to Neshama’s blog, here, which is talking about the new Danish study done on 6,000 people to finally answer the questions of: 1) whether facemasks stop the spread of COVID-19, and 2) whether wearing facemasks damages the wearer’s health.

Guess what?

None of the ‘peer-reviewed’ journals want to touch this study with a barge pole, because it seems the REAL SCIENCE is showing that masks are 1) totally pointless and 2) also harmful to human health.

See the link here:

https://habayitah.blogspot.com/2020/10/mask-study-censored-double-blind.html?m=1

Is that the sound of millions of people running to sue the pants of hospitals, doctors, politicians and bureaucrats? I sure hope so!!

====

And then, the last thing to tell you is that I went downtown today, for the first time in about three months, as some of the shops slowly try to re-open. I needed to buy boots before winter really starts, as I wore my old ones for three years, and they fell apart in March.

Most of the clothing and shoe shops are GOING BUST.

One that was open let me in, in a super furtive way, where I sat behind a screen to try on shoes so the cops wouldn’t spot me and write them a huge fine (as happened to other shops on Yaffo, they told me.)

While I sat there, the wife was on the phone, talking about how bad ‘Bibi’ is, how he’s literally condemning millions of people to starving by taking away their parnassa, and how they paid 30,000 shekels for TWO MONTHS RENT in Yaffo, when no-one could come and buy anything.

More and more people are starting to wake up to the fact that ‘saving people’s lives’ is NOT what this plandemic is about.

If we band together, pray and stop supporting evil, all this can still change around for the good, very fast.

 And in the meantime, it’s time to give some serious consideration to the idea of where your own line in the sand is, and how you are going to defend it.

Read this, for some food for thought – but don’t get down!

The Rav is sweetening things still, behind the scenes, and as soon as he gets out of prison, all this will really start to move in a good way.

Personally, I can’t wait.

It all started innocently enough, with a nagging question about the ‘tzaddik’ Moses Montefiore:

How come, if he was such a ‘good’ guy, he married into that den of vipers known as the Victorian Rothschilds of London, and went into business with his brother-in-law, Nathan Rothschild, to create the Alliance Insurance company in 1824?

And from there, I managed to open a whole massive can of worms.

====

A few months back, following some of the clues about real Jewish history that is scattered throughout Rabbi Eliezer Berland’s book Conversations, I tripped over a whole bunch of information about Jacob Frank, and his ‘Frankist’ movement, that you can read more about HERE.

When I’d finished writing that piece, I thought I’d more or less bottomed-out the greatest secrets being concealed in Jewish history over the last 500 years.

I mean, the fact that Yonatan Eybeschutz WAS a secret follower of the infamous false messiah Shabtai Tzvi; and this his son openly proclaimed himself a Frankist prophet and then converted to Christianity, seemed like enough of a scoop.

And, the fact that Rebbe Nachman and Breslov were being slandered as being ‘secret Frankists’ was also a massive revelation, that explains so very much about what was going on behind the scenes, back then.

So, I put all that research to one side, and came back to more ‘fun’ stuff.

Like Covid 1984. And, like the links between the Rothschild family and the State of Israel. And, the strange intersection between Jews high up in the American administration and military and the fate of those thousands of Yemenite children.

And that, dear reader, is when I stumbled across the biggest can of worms in Jewish history.

====

I could literally write 100 detailed posts about all the things I’m finding out, but who has time or patience for that?

No-one.

So instead, after getting a prompt in my hitbodedut to start getting this information out there, however simply, I’m going to pick out a few subjects, a few individuals, and tell you their stories, and then hopefully, you will start to fill in more of the blanks for yourselves.

So today, let’s start with Moses Montefiore.

====

Like I said, it started off innocently enough.

I’d always thought (been brainwashed into believing…) that Moses Montefiore was the builder of modern Jerusalem, and a truly saintly, scrupulously observant, generous individual, who spent great sums of his own money helping his poor Jewish brethren around the world.

True, he was known as being a great confidant and friend of Queen Victoria, which always struck me as a little strange.

And then, I discovered that he was also a leading Freemason, which is when the nagging doubts really started to emerge that something in this pious picture was off.

In 1812, Montefiore became a freemason, joining the Moira Lodge, No. 92 of the Premier Grand Lodge of England in London.

====

This comes from the Israeli Freemasons own site:

Montefiore was born in Livorno, Italy. He was an active Mason, having been initiated in Moira Lodge in 1812. His brother-in-law, Nathan Meyer Rothschild, had been initiated ten years earlier in the Emulation Lodge. Montefiore and Rothschild had married sisters, daughters of Levi Barent Cohen.

He was knighted in 1837 by Queen Victoria. That same year, Benjamin Disraeli was elected to Parliament as a Tory.

In August of 1840, together with the French Lawyer and high-ranking Masons Adolphe Cremieux (1796-1880), he led a delegation to Turkey and secured the release of the captives of the Damascus blood libel.

We’ll come back to Adolphe Cremieux later on. For now, he’s what you need to remember about him (from Wikipedia):

The Alliance israélite universelle

The Alliance israélite universelle (Hebrew: כל ישראל חברים‎) is a Paris-based international Jewish organization founded in 1860 by the French statesman Adolphe Crémieux to safeguard the human rights of Jews around the world.

And then, two weeks ago, once I’d made the connection that the Rothschilds – and the vast majority of all those Jewish-German banking families were intimately connected to the Frankist movement that swept away European Jewry 200 years ago – I hit another kooshia that refused to be silenced.

====

Frankist families – and the secret believers in the cult of Shabtai Tzvi, that preceded them – tend to only marry other ‘believers’ in their Frankist / Shabbatean faith.

That’s how they operate, that’s how it works, to keep everyone ‘on plan’ and to ensure that these families’ secrets won’t be spread to outsiders. We saw the same phenomenon with the Marranos in Spain and Portugal, with the Donmeh (pretend Muslim / Shabbatean sect in Turkey), and of course, we see it so very clearly with families like the Rothschilds.

This practice of marrying members of your own family is called ‘endogamy’, and at least where the Rothschilds are concerned, commentators state that they adopted this practice in order to keep all their vast wealth in family hands.

But when I started checking back in the Rothschild genealogy, I quickly noticed a strange thing:

There was a lot of ‘endogamy’ going on amongst these German-Jewish families even preceding Jacob Frank, and the Rothschilds coming into their tremendous wealth.

And then, there was the curious matter of Sir Moses Montefiore – a Sephardi Jew of Spanish and Portuguese descent.

How had he, a Sephardi Jew, come to marry into the Frankist Rothschild clan, even after their enormous fortune had already been well established?

The answer was shocking.

====

I started digging around Sir Moses Montefiore’s family tree, and I discovered that his family were ‘New Christians’ – forced converts from Spain and Portugal – who only re-adopted their Jewish faith when they hit the relatively tolerant environment of Amsterdam, in the Netherlands.

There was a very large Spanish and Portuguese community there, made up predominantly of former Marranos, and Amsterdam at that time was a hub of trade and commerce, and Jewish life.

There are conservative estimates that at least half of the Jewish community in Amsterdam had become earnest supporters of the false messiah Shabtai Tzvi, with many accounts of people selling their homes and businesses for a fraction of what they were worth, in readiness for the call to move to Eretz Yisrael.

Many of those people fell away from the cult of Shabtai Tzvi when he converted to Islam in 1666, and then died in 1676.

But many didn’t.

====

One of the things I’ve been discovering more and more, is just how many of these ‘secret Shabbateanisms’ held leading positions in the Jewish world, both on the communal side, and on the rabbinic side (which were often intertwined, in any case).

So many of the ‘big rabbis’ of the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries were actually secret believers in the cult of Shabtai Tzvi, long after he’d been unmasked as a fraud.

Shabtai Tzvi was ultimately a figurehead, a puppet, who fronted a movement that brought together a lot of people with a similarly twisted ideology, including people like Nathan of Gaza, a German Jew living in Jerusalem, who became his main ‘disciple’.

And that’s why this movement outlasted both his apostasy and death, and even strengthened and spread.

====

As I mentioned in the earlier post on Jacob Frank HERE, there were 3 main groups of people who believed in Shabtai Tzvi:

Group 1: Well-meaning Jews who were duped into believing that SHATZ is the Moshiach between 1665 and his conversion in September in 1666. Large numbers of this group make teshuva after Shabtai becomes an apostate, and return to the Jewish fold.

Group 2: Crypto-Sabbateans – who maintain a pious Jewish exterior, but who engage in all sorts of secret, christian behavior and beliefs behind closed doors, and continue to believe that SHATZ actually is the Moshiach ben Yosef.

Group 3: Hard-core Sabbateans, who are practising the occult, many of whom also sham convert to Islam and / or Catholicism, but whose real religion continues to be Sabbateanism. The infamous ‘Donmeh[1]’ of Turkey belong to this last group, as to the infamous ‘Prague Sabbatians’, headed up by Frank’s cousin, Moshe Dobruska, who are directly connected to the Illuminati.

Many of these Jews schism off and out of the Jewish community, at this point.

But not all of them, especially in Podalia and Frankfurt.

====

Clearly, that last group of Shabbateans – people who had bought into the warped idea that the Moshiach would only appear when the world was ‘totally bad’, because it was impossible for the world to be ‘totally good’ – were an enormous problem for the Jewish world.

(For reference, this belief is referred to as being ‘antinomian’. That basically means that they turned every aspect of the Jewish faith on its head – eating on fast days, eating pork, committing adultery – in order to ‘make the world bad’ as quickly a possible.)

Part of their attempts to make the world ‘totally bad’ involved engaging in the worst types of promiscuity and adultery – all behind closed doors, of course.

====

So, back to Moses Montefiore.

Montefiore’s family spent time in Ancona and Leghorn (Ligorno), before moving to London.

HERE, we learn that Nathan of Gaza spent some time in Leghorn before his death, and “made a number of converts” there.

One of the leading ‘disciples’ of the antinomian cult of Shabtai Tzvi, after his death, was a guy called Avraham Rovigo.

Rovigo was a ‘disciple’ of Rabbi Eliyahu Mujajon. You can see a handwritten note from Mujajon HERE, where we also discover that:

The most well-known of Nathan of Gaza’s disciples were Rabbi Shlomo Ayllon (the future Av Beit Din of Amsterdam) and Rabbi Eliyahu Mujajon and they were the ones who distributed the Sabbatean faith in Italy.

====

Rovigo was given a very warm welcome in many Jewish communities with strong Shabbatean elements, including the Italian town of Leghorn – Livorno.

Montefiore himself was born in Leghorn on October 28, 1784, before moving to London (he died in Ramsgate, England in 1885).

He became prominent in the Spanish and Portuguese community there, and lucky Moses, quickly married into money and respectability – so much so, that even England’s queen counted him as a friend.

Doesn’t that strike you as odd?

[There are some glaring problems with Montefiore’s ‘official’ family tree, so I am going to save that part of the story for the next post. Trying to untwist his family tree led to me finding out something totally unexpected and mind-blowing. More on that in the next post, BH.)

====

The Spanish and Portuguese synagogue in London is called Bevis Marks.

Back in the day, I used to sometimes eat lunch at the kosher restaurant housed on the premises, when I worked in the City.

Shlomo Ayllon was the Rabbi of Bevis Marks, before he left for Amsterdam under a cloud of Sabbateanism, in 1702.

====

You have to dig very deep to even get a glimmer of the true story, as over the last 200 years, these people’s descendants – who are still lording it over us, even today – have been very careful to hide their traces.

So now, I’d collected more pieces of the puzzle, and I’d discovered that Moses Montefiore and his family hailed from places with very strong connections to the cult of Shabtai Tzvi. He’d also married into the Shabbatean / Frankist extended family network of the Rothschilds:

Moses married (1812) Judith, daughter of Levi Barent Cohen. Levi Barent Cohen was an Ashkenazi, and it was a sign of indifference, on the part of the Montefiores, to current prejudice that, although they belonged to the London Sephardim, they married German Jewesses.

====

So now, I hit the next kooshia:

But, wasn’t this guy a strongly orthodox Jew, and a massive helper of his people?! Hadn’t he visited Israel seven times – the last time when he was in his nineties – just because he was so devoted to the welfare of his people?

That sent me down the next rabbit hole.

====

Just up the road from me in Jerusalem, there is the famous windmill that Moses Montefiore built, together with a row of almshouses, to try to relieve the terrible overcrowding occurring within the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem.

It was the first Jewish community outside the medieval Old City walls.

It was built with the stated aim of trying to get those ‘backwards’ religious Jews modernizing, working for a living instead of relying on the haluka payment, and becoming more emancipated and away from the control of their rabbis.

Are you starting to see the problem?

====

Then, I learned that Montefiore wasn’t spending his own money when he was arranging for the building of all these ‘modern’ communities outside Jerusalem’s city walls.

He was spending the bequest of a Jew named Judah Touro, a business man from New Orleans, prominent member of the Spanish and Portuguese community there, who was also connected to both the Rothschilds and to the cult of Shabtai Tzvi.

How did Touro, based in the US, have such close connections to Montefiore, based in the UK, to make him the executor of his will?

Whenever I ask myself ‘strange’ questions like this, I end up tripping down some very unexpected rabbit holes. That just happened now, and I will try to share the mind-blowing information I just discovered in the next post.

====

For now, let’s sum things up broadly like this:

  • Many of the marrano families originally from Spain and Portugal, continued with their double life long after they officially ‘returned’ to the fold of Judaism.
  • Because many of these families were merchants or financiers, engaged in trade, they moved around a lot, and often had different names (and religions, and connections) in the different locales they frequented.
  • They could be ‘Jews’ in one country, in one context – even religious Jews, even ‘chief rabbis’ of whole cities and countries (!) – and then in another place, be known as good christians, with a totally different name.
  • The cults of Shabtai Tzvi and Jacob Frank meshed with many of these marrano families, often seamlessly, as both were built around a core of ‘abolishing’ orthodox Jewry, tinged with very strong (but totally warped….) messianic ambitions.
  • These Jews were also the ‘connecting material’ between the deep kabbalah that was brought into the world by the Arizal (and expanded further when the Zohar was rediscovered, after being hidden for almost 1 ½ millenia), and the kabbalah-based black magic that came to form the basis of the Illuminati lodges, and global networks.
  • But the Jews in this story – bad as they really are – are still just puppets. There is another non-Jewish player in this game above them, and I am inching closer and closer to figuring out who those people really are.

====

Let’s just get back to Moses Montefiore, to end.

First, this is what you need to know about the British Board of Deputies:

 The board was established to protect the interests of British Jews not only in the British Isles, but in the colonies. It was appealed to from Jamaica in 1761 and from the Balearic Isles in 1766. Meetings were held sporadically in 1778 and 1789.

In the latter year Moses I. Levi was elected as president, and in 1812 the German members of the board became regularly connected with it. The deputies watched over all the legislation relating to marriages, labor laws, and other matters which might affect Jews prejudicially, and aided considerably in the struggle for Jewish emancipation.

In 1835 Sir Moses Montefiore was elected president, and he remained in that office until his death.

====

Most people don’t understand that the Board was created to protect the global assets of the wealthy Jews back in London.

So even in Victorian times, the Board of Deputies was frequently accused of doing nothing to help the Jews across the globe. Then, as now, the Jewish community didn’t realise that the Board was set up more as a propaganda exercise by London’s leading Jewish families – to make it look like they cared and to give them an ‘in’ within these Jewish communities – than to actually help them.

That sounds harsh, I know, but here’s an anecdote that I found, that kind of encapsulates what was really going on, with the Montefiore-Rothschild controlled Board of Deputies.

(Before I continue, you should also know that the infamous Alliance Israelite Universelle was founded and financed by the French branch of the Rothschilds, using Adolphe Cremieux, from above, as their cut-out frontman.)

====

Here’s how scholar Mark Cohen explains how the ‘tzaddik’ Montefiore helped the poor, devout Jews of Monastir, whose Jewish quarter ‘mysteriously’ burned down in August 1863, after they refused to modernize their education system:

“After the fire, Monastir’s rabbinical leadership sought the help of London’s Sir Moses Montefiore, who encouraged British Jewry to make donations on behalf of Monastir’s 3,000 homeless Jews.

More than £2,000 was raised. But London did not allow the money to be used to rebuild the traditional Talmud Torah school. It was a revealing if not surprising decision. By the mid-nineteenth century, the Jews of France and England were keen to overhaul the education of the Sephardic Jews in order to prepare them for life as citizens in a rapidly Westernising Ottoman society.

The Talmud Torah schools, which focused exclusively on Hebrew and Talmud, were seen as hindering that goal. In Monastir, British Jewry’s refusal to aid the Talmud Torah helped tip the balance of power away from traditionalist rabbis toward a small group of educational reformers.

Within a year, these reformers founded one of the first committees in the Ottoman Empire to support the kind of schools favoured by Western Jews—those of the Alliance Israélite Universelle.”

====

‘London’ was being controlled by Montefiore, as the head of the Board of Deputies, and as the frontman for the Frankist network who were outwardly still ‘Jewish’, and leading the rest of the community.

It’s a post for another time, but it’s truly amazing how many times ‘recalcitrant’ Jewish communities, who stubbornly refused to ‘modernise’ and dump their orthodox Rabbis and Torah-true education and lifestyle subsequently suffered a massive fire, which totally destroyed their communities.

And who was waiting in the wings to swoop in and rebuild these communities in a ‘reformed’ mode?

I think you’re starting to figure out the answer to that question all by yourselves….

====

King Shlomo told us that there is nothing new under the sun.

As it was then, 150 years ago, and 350 years ago, and 2000 years ago, and 3,300 years ago, so it still is today.

Those same families and their representatives are still striving mightily to institute that same agenda today, to destroy orthodox Judaism, and replace it with a reformed, messianic cult that’s rooted totally in money, tumah and black magic kabbalah.

And so many of our modern day philanthropists, and modern day ‘leaders’ – both in the orthodox world and elsewhere, both in the rabbinate and elsewhere, both in Israel and elsewhere – are part and parcel of this network of hypocritical ‘pretend Jews’, pulling people away from Torah and God.

In the next post, we’ll really pull back the curtain, and set out what’s really going on here.

====

A reader asked if I could write a ‘chizzuk’ post.

Honestly, I’d like to do that way more than I do on this blog, but sometimes, it just doesn’t come to me. Especially recently.

But a reader got in touch, and told me they have friends in Israel who recently made aliya, and who are now wondering if they made the right decision, especially with all the revelations about just how corrupt this State really is.

What can I say?

You absolutely made the right decision.

Yes, I know the Kotel is shut to anyone outside the Rova, the holy sites are closed down, Mahane Yehuda is off limits, the beach is shut, and the police are violent thugs and psychopaths who have been trained to hate and attack religious Jews.

Yes, that sucks.

I also know that so many of us are going a little crazy from being ‘locked down’ in small apartments, stuck with our families 24/7 and being forced to wear masks for fear of massive fines.

(And not because we’re scared of a virus that has incontrovertibly killed less people than the common flu.)

But nevertheless, you absolutely made the right decision to move to Israel now.

Here’s why:

  1. So many of our true tzaddikim, the people who really know what they are talking about and aren’t confused by what’s going on, have repeatedly told us to make aliya. And top of that list is Rabbi Eliezer Berland.
  2. Israel is still the holy land, and it’s still chock-full of holy Jews. Once more of us holy Jews understand who the real ‘enemy’ is – and that is slowly dawning on more and more of us – things will turnaround here fast, and fundamentally.
  3. Israel is just 3 months ahead of the rest of the world. Whatever is going on here today will be going on by you very soon – except you’ll also have to deal with way more violent non-Jews, and way more toxic anti-semitism, because Jews are a tiny minority in every other country, even the US, whereas here, they are a massive majority. It’s the bad guys here who are the minority, so when things change – as they inevitably will – the majority rule here will be one of kedusha.

And hopefully, also of geula and Moshiach.

Nachamu, Nachamu, my people.

Don’t forget that the power of prayer can change everything around, and that our real strength is in our tefilla, not in our hishtadlut.

Turn to God, wherever you happen to be in the world, and beg Him to end all the evil, all the coronafascism, all the madness, and to uncover the lies and help more Jews to make teshuva and return to God, and their true spiritual greatness.

We have been ruled by a small, evil minority of Shabatean ‘crypto Jews’ for approaching three centuries now, who made it a priority to place their people into positions of leadership and power, where they could influence – and ultimately destroy – so much of our kedusha and connection to Hashem.

Those people run the State of Israel, it’s true.

But they are to be found all over the world in Jewish leadership positions, and especially amongst the ranks of ‘rabbis’ and communal leaders.

More on this soon, BH.

But the bottom line is, staying out of Israel doesn’t mean you are staying out of the problem.

The ‘problem’ is everywhere.

But at least in Israel, there’s also a few million sincere, believing Jews, too. Like, half the country (at least….) has been to Uman, regardless of how they look externally, and Rabbenu’s Army is a massive force to be reckoned with now.

And don’t forget, that it’s ultimately just God, who is behind all this, because He wants some serious teshuva.

====

So courage!

We are almost at the finishing line.

Anyone who lives in Israel will probably have a much easier time from here on in, as hard as it is, because all the suffering we’ve endured here is ‘sweetening’ things for us in a profound way, as we head into the final lap for geula.

And anyone that doesn’t – you can connect to God from wherever you are, and connect to Rabbenu, and to the Rav, wherever you live.

True, it’s easier – way easier – to do that in Israel. But it’s possible everywhere.

And each one of us that keeps praying, keeps talking to God, keeps asking Hashem to send us geula and Moshiach the sweet way, and keeps working on our own bad middot, is automatically part of Rabbenu’s Army, and part of something way bigger, spiritually, than any of us can really comprehend.

I know it’s hard right now.

The light has been so obscured.

But hang on!

It’s all about to turn around.
