BH, my husband’s foot is finally starting to turn the corner.

I’ll probably write more about what big tests we’ve been having over the last two weeks, and all the different stuff we’ve been doing, including on the teshuva front, to try to deal with it all.

Right now, I’m still pre-occupied nursing my husband back to full health, God willing, and trying to regain some of the ‘order’ in my life that feels like it got hit by a hurricane the last two weeks.

Rabbenu front-loaded stuff for us, I have no doubt, so we could make a lot of teshuva and ‘sweeten’ the rest of the year right when the doors of teshuva were open the widest.

For sure, all this will end up only being for the good, but it’s still been a very stressful and tiring process on so many levels.

====

In the meantime, I had another ‘meaningful dream’ yesterday, and the very short version of it is this:

I was a guest in some family’s massive house for Shabbos – they were Americans, but I didn’t know them – with lots of kids of various ages.

Somehow, I managed to smear paint, or something, all over the expensive furnishings, and I was so embarrassed I ran upstairs to try to hide from all the anger I was expecting to get from the baalat habayit when she saw what I’d done, albeit accidentally.

In the meantime, she found me, and she started telling me, in a very gentle way, that she had a really good idea for how all that paint could get permanently cleaned up, off the furniture.

Just was I was standing there, amazed at her kindness and patience with me, the sky went a really weird colour, and what looked like massive ‘people’ riding on all sorts of massive metal shapes – I think they were currency symbols, like dollars, yen etc – started kind of bobbing down from the sky.

Everyone in that family started yelling:

It’s simanin for Moshiach!!! It’s simanin for geula!!!

It for sure looked very weird, but even in the dream I was still feeling very cynical, and that it’s probably just some sort of hologram, to fool the masses, or something.

Until one of these things actually hit me in the head, and I got told:

See, it IS real!

And then I woke up.

====

Make of this what you will, but in hitbodedut today, I got the idea to share it.

BH, I am still figuring out what I want to do with the blog going forward, it may continue the way it has been the last few years, or I may take it in a different direction, I still don’t know.

But the priority is to get my husband fit again, with God’s help, so until that’s in the bag, I don’t really have time or inclination to do a lot of writing.

====

But, let me just remind you that tonight is the yarhtzeit of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov.

The Rav is holding a big gathering, with dancing, around Ido HaNavi, starting around 7pm (remember, all this is Israeli time….)

And there will also be a lot of dancing happening in Rav Shalom Arush’s succah on Shmuel HaNavi St.

But if you can’t make those, light a candle for the Tzaddik, find yourself something yummy to eat, and sit in the sukkah at home and do a bit of singing and dancing, in the zchut of Rabbenu.

Heaven knows, we need that singing and dancing more than ever, this year.

====

PS: Remember what the Rav said about everyone needing to be out of Ukraine by Simchat Torah?

Looks like this could only be the beginning or things amping up in the country again:

This is going to be a long post.

But it seems we can’t really dodge the issue of who Jesus actually was, how he got so popular, who his followers really were, and the modus operandi the xtians used to subvert Torah and the Jewish community.

Before we begin, I have to stress again that THERE IS NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN.

How did the original Erev Rav manage to persuade a whole bunch of Jews – who had just seen the open revelation of Hashem at Mount Sinai!!! – to give up on all that, and on the Torah, to start worshipping a golden calf?

==

Black magic ‘miracles’ were part of the problem, right from the start.

Evil Micah was one of the Jewish babies that the Egyptians were taking from their mothers, and plastering into the walls. When Moshe asked how a merciful God could allow such a thing to happen, Hashem told him to rescue one of those babies (who were actually very ‘evil’ souls, who need to go through a lot of tikkunim and harsh suffering in order to be rectified), and to see what sort of person he grew up to be.

That person was Micah.

When Moshe Rabbenu raised the bones of Yosef from the Nile, where the Egyptians had sunk his casket as part of their ‘black magic’ to ensure that the Jews would never leave Mitzraim, he threw a placket with the words ‘aleh shor’ (‘rise, ox’) into the water, and Yosef’s bones rose to the surface so the Jews could take him out of Egypt when they left.

Micah stole that placket.

====

When Janus and Jambrus, leaders of the Erev Rav, relatives of Bilaam (and some say also descendants of another world-class sorcerer, Lavan) made the golden calf, they killed anyone who tried to stand up to them.

That’s how Hur died.

Aaron then tried to find a way to placate this violent mob so they wouldn’t kill him, too, and went along with their plan to create a golden calf, hoping it would buy enough time for Moshe Rabbenu to return, and take charge.

It takes a long time to make a golden calf derech hateva, without using sorcery.

Especially in the middle of the desert, 3, 333 years ago.

====

But what happened? Evil Micah snuck up to where the gold jewellery was all being melted down – and threw in the placket with the words ‘aleh shor’.

Hey presto, a magnificent golden calf instantly formed, that could even move around under its own steam.

Wow!

What a ‘miracle’! What an obvious ‘sign’ that Hashem Himself must want the Israelites to be worshipping the golden calf, because look at that thing!! 

====

THERE IS NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN.

The evildoers in our midst, the ‘Erev Rav’ in our midst, have always used black magic, and subverted the holy names of Hashem, and the deepest wisdom of the kabbalah for their own, evil, Satanic ends.

There are two ways you get ‘supernatural miracles’.

One way, is where you spend 60 years in the desert doing hitbodedut all day long, without any miracles happening, while you work on overcoming your bad middot and have a lot of self-sacrifice, mesirut nefesh, to try to serve God properly.

You have no money, a ton of shame and humiliation, no-one is running after you calling you ‘rebbe’; there are no Presidents of the United States who are officially celebrating your birthday, no politicians lining up to call on you, or oligarchs trying to give you $10 million in cash to build a new yeshiva.

This is the path of our true tzaddikim like Moshe Rabbenu.

====

Only after that 60 years in the desert, or those 12 years living in a cave, spending your days buried up to your neck in mud, while you spend every moment still trying to serve God amidst the most difficult hardship, do you get to the stage of being a real ‘Tzaddik’.

The sort of Tzaddik that can work open miracles via their prayers, and via their own self-sacrifice and suffering.

Very few people can ever really attain this sort of level.

We are talking about a handful of people throughout the whole of history, who could really ‘perform miracles’ with this level of true kedusha.

But don’t worry!

Because for everyone else, there’s a ton of ‘black magic’ shortcuts for performing open miracles.

And this is where we swing back around to Yoshki, and the Erev Rav, and the Sabbatean-Frankists who are still going strong in our communities today.

====

How did Jesus get such a following amongst the Jewish people?

He went to Egypt, learnt black magic there, and started doing a bunch of ‘open miracles’ to persuade the masses he was the real deal.

And alongside that, he also told people what they wanted to hear, and made them ‘feel good’ about themselves, so they wouldn’t have to worry too much about acknowledging their bad middot or having to do the very hard work of really rectifying their souls.

Leave it all to me!  Yoshki told them.

Go back to polishing buttons and watching the football game! All you have to do is to believe that I’m really God incarnate [chas v’halila a billion times] and everything else is taken care of! You can lie, cheat, murder, rape, pillage – whatever you want. But just believe in me, and give me and my institutions lots of charity, and you’re still getting to Heaven!

====

You can see how that would appeal to the masses.

Who wants a ‘heavy’ religion where you have to really take responsibility for fixing your innumerable flaws and where you have to serve Hashem with tremendous mesirut nefesh, and where you are the ‘mat’ that everyone else wipes their feet on?

It’s way more fun to get invited to the White House, and to hang out with Putin, and to have oligarchs paying you millions and billions for reasons that are still not so obvious to everyone else…

====

I am still in the process of trying to ‘unpick’ who the historical Jesus really was.

It’s complicated by the fact that there seems to have been two ‘waves’ of early xtianity, and also, by the fact that both the xtian world AND THE JEWISH WORLD have been censoring and distorting what really happened.

But in the rest of this post, I wanted to lay out what we know so far, to try to put Yoshki back into his authentic Jewish context, so we can understand that ‘whitewashing Jesus’ is akin to ‘whitewashing Hitler’, another charismatic leader with Jewish blood who was into the occult and hated authentic Torah Judaism and ‘rabbiners’ with a passion.

Then in part 2, we’ll take a closer look at what Ariel Cohen Callo – disciple of R’ Yitzhak Ginsburg – is upto, with his dangerous ‘pidyon haben’ nonsense for rehabilitating Yoshki.

(That’s the bit that is really disturbing me about all this, but we’ll set all that out in the next post, BH.)

====

So, where is Jesus mentioned in authentic Jewish sources?

Let’s start with Sanhedrin 43a.

Except….If you are reading most versions of the Gemara, including the Artscroll Schottenstein Daf Yomi edition that nearly every English-speaker users to learn Gemara….you won’t find the information I’m going to bring below, because it’s been censored out of the Talmud.

This section of Sanhedrin is discussing the legal procedures that have to be followed before a capital punishment case, where the Sanhedrin would execute someone by the four methods of stoning, beheading, strangling or burning. I highly recommend you go and read it, because it clearly shows that unlike today’s ‘kangaroo courts’ and ‘kangaroo beit dins’, the Tannaim of the Gemara followed some very strict halachic procedures, when trying cases.

====

Let’s bring some of what the Mishna says in Sanhedrin 43a, for context, then we’ll add in the part that was censored out, that relates specifically to Yoshki.

The Mishnah resumes its account of the procedure that preceded the execution:

If they found a reason to acquit him, they would acquit him; but if not, he goes out to be stoned. A proclamation would be called out before him, worded in the following way: “So-and-so the son of So-and-so is being taken out to be stoned, for he has transgressed such-and-such a prohibition, and So-and-so are his witnesses. Whoever knows any grounds for his acquittal, let him come forward and present them.

This would usually occur just before the execution, when everyone was gathered together to watch the excitement (some things never change…)

But then the Gemara starts mentioning a mysterious case involving an ‘anonymous’ unspecified someone where things were done differently, that reads like this in the censored Artscoll edition:

The Gemara questions:

Is it only ‘before him’, as the condemned walks to his execution, that such a proclamation is called out, and not some days in advance of this?

No further discussion of this matter is recorded in the Gemara. [See footnote 37].

====

Except, that’s not true.

Footnote 37 in Artscroll says this:

The Vilna edition of the Talmud is missing the text that follows this question; for a full rendition of the missing text, see Chesronos HaShas.

Chesronos HaShas is all the different bits of the Talmud that was taken out by xtian censors, and the people who were working for them like Jonathan Eybshutz (as covered HERE).

It’s very hard to use (at least for me…), but we have it.

And this is a photocopy of the ‘censored’ passage:

====

Here’s the Wikipedia description of going on in English – but there are also deliberate distortions in the translation here:

As a sorcerer with disciples

Sanhedrin 43a relates the trial and execution of Jesus and his five disciples. 

Here, Jesus is a sorcerer who has enticed other Jews to apostasy. A herald is sent to call for witnesses in his favour for forty days before his execution. No one comes forth and in the end he is stoned and hanged on the Eve of Passover. His five disciples, named Matai, Nekai, Netzer, Buni, and Todah are then tried. Word play is made on each of their names, and they are executed. It is mentioned that leniency could not be applied because of Jesus’ influence with the royal government (malkhut).

====

Dafka, it was the opposite!

It was dafka BECAUSE of Jesus’ influence with the ruling government that a herald was sent out a full 40 days before his execution, as opposed to just being sent out the day of his execution, like they did for everyone else.

The Sages were so concerned about Jesus’ cosy contacts with the government / king being such a problem for them, if they tried to try him for his crimes, they gave him a full 40 days to bring witnesses that could ‘acquit’ him.

You see, how everything is always twisted around by these xtians and the Yoshki whitewashers in our own communities?

====

Who was the king in Israel, at the time all this was going on with the real, historical Jesus?

One of my readers summed it up nicely, so I’m going to use his words, then bring the sources that back up his statements.

[The original] Yeshu lived in the time of Shimon ben Shetach, who had Yoshke killed for being a false moshiach and utilizing the Shem haMeforesh.

Basically, the tract Toldot Yeshu is correct. That is the real, historical Jesus and that is all about what he did.

Then his followers, called ‘minim’ in the Gemora started to viciously lash back at the Perushim, the Sages, and later began the Hebrew/Christian cult we know of from history.

They were the face of Christianity until:

a) Paul was sent on his mission by the chachamim to get Christianity derailed from just being an offshoot of Judaism and

b) Until the Roman nobility under Arrius Piso decided to use the story to write the New Testament and make Roman Catholicism the usurper of the Hebrew/Christian Yoshke cult and turn it into the Church of Rome under Constantine.

====

We’ll get to the stuff about Paul and Peter another time. Maybe.

In the meantime, let’s first take a look at Shimon ben Shetach, (139 BCE – 38 BCE). He was the ‘av beit din’ zug, or ‘pair’ with the nasi Yehuda Ibn Tabbai.

You find them in Pirkey Avot in Chapter 1, Mishnah 8.

First, let’s understand a bit more about what these zugot were, and their links to the Sanhedrin. The following comes from HERE:

[Shimon ben Shetach] inherited the power of the Grand Assembly Sanhedrin (Sanhedrin) — a council consisting of 71 elders. There were two sages heading up the Sanhedrin: the Nasi (chairman) and his deputy, av Beit Din (chief Justice). These two leaders were called zug (couple).

The Zugot period was marked by a struggle between Hellenists (Jews who adopted Greek culture) and those who remained faithful to the laws of the Torah — a struggle that became acute as a civil war.

====

Shimon ben Shetach and Yehuda Ibn Tabbai were preceded by the ‘zug’ of Yehoshua ben Perachya and Nitai HaArbeli.

Yehoshua ben Perachya is known as the ‘rebbe’ of Jesus, who was one of his students who went astray. More on that in a moment.

====

Shimon ben Shetach’s sister, Salome / ShlomTzion, was married to the hellenistic Hashmonean King of that time period, called Alexander Yannai.

And he really didn’t like the Sages, and their ‘old-fashioned’ Torah and halachot.

If you look in Sanhedrin 19b, it recounts how one of King Yannai’s slaves killed someone, and Shimon ben Shetach summoned the King to appear before the Beit Din.

Shimon ben Shetach was the only rabbi in the Great Sanhedrin who wasn’t scared to sit in judgment on King Yannai – but things didn’t end well. In the Talmud, it says that Shimon ben Shetach basically cursed his colleagues for being cowards, and then:

Immediately the angel Gavriel came, knocked them to the ground, and they died.

====

You can find the Wikipedia page for ‘Alexander Yannai’ HERE.

Snippet:

Alexander Jannaeus was the third son of John Hyrcanus by his second wife.

When Aristobulus I… died after a reign of one year…Alexander, as the oldest living brother, had the right not only to the throne, but also to Salome, the widow of his deceased brother, who had died childless; and, although she was thirteen years older than him, he married her in accordance with the Jewish law of Levirate Marriage. 

Also this:

Like his father, Alexander also served as the high priest. This raised the ire of the religious authorities who insisted that these two offices should not be combined. According to the Talmud, Yannai was a questionable desecrated priest (rumour had it that his mother was captured in Modiin and violated) and, in the opinion of the Pharisees, was not allowed to serve in the temple.

This infuriated the king and he sided with the Sadducees who defended him. This incident led the king to turn against the Pharisees and he persecuted them until his death.

====

Alexander Yannai was quite the despot.

Later on his career, he sparked a number of civil wars within Israel. One time, as the ‘Kohen HaGadol’ he was meant to be pouring the water libation in the Temple onto the altar, but he mocked the ceremony by deliberately pouring the water at his feet.

The crowd of Jews who were in the Temple for Succot got so upset with him they pelted the King with their etrogs and called him the son of a ‘captive woman’, i.e. unfit to be the Kohen HaGadol. In return, he slaughtered 6,000 of them.

That then lead to something called the ‘Judaean Civil War’, where thousands of simple Jews revolted against their corrupt, Sadducean King.

That also didn’t end well. Thousands of people died, in horrible ways:

Jannaeus… brought the surviving rebels back to Jerusalem where he had eight hundred Jews, primarily Pharisees, crucified.

Before their deaths, Alexander had the rebels’ wives and children executed before their eyes as Jannaeus ate with his concubines. 

Nice guy…

====

So, Alexander Yannai was on a rampage against the Sages of the Sanhedrin, who were trying to uphold the Torah and its laws.

This snippet comes from the JewishVirtualLibrary site, HERE:

Josephus on the one hand and rabbinic sources on the other record a number of clashes between Yannai and the Pharisees (e.g., Ant., 13:372–383; Kid. 66a; Sot. 47a; Sanh. 19a).

However, according to Josephus (Ant., 13:400–404), on his death bed the king advised his wife to yield a certain amount of power to them, so that she could govern with no problems.

====

Shimon ben Shetach was hidden and protected by his sister, Queen ShlomTzion.

But the other Sages, including Yehoshua ben Perachya, fled Israel to Alexandria, in Egypt, together with his student, ‘Yeshua HaNotzri’ = Jesus. Until Shimon ben Shetach sent his rebbe a note that it was safe to return.

This comes from the Zissil website HERE:

On their return trip they stopped at an inn, whose hostess treated Rabbi Yehoshua ben Perachya with great respect. Yehoshua ben Perachya complemented her to his students saying how nice the innkeeper was, in reference to her hospitality and actions.

Yeshu taking the remark at face value, responded how it was not true since her eyes were round. Yehoshua ben Perachya was startled how one of his main students was not Shomer Anyim and looked at women, let alone how Yeshu could bring himself to say such a thing in public and before his teacher.

In a way, this was a sign of bigger spiritual descents that Yeshu must have gone through while in Egypt. Due to this incident, Yehoshua ben Perachya excommunicated Yeshu, using a shofar to solidify the severance.

====

As time went by Yeshu descended lower and lower, gathering around him ignorant people whom he attracted through the ‘miracles’ he performed via the use of practical Kabbalah and witchcraft.

Yeshu caused many of his followers to sin and scoff at the authority of the Sages. At one point Yehoshua ben Perachya approached his former student and asked him to repent.

Yeshu refused quoting a teaching that he had heard from Yehoshua ben Prachya himself; that one who sins and causes others to sin, is no longer given the opportunity to repent.

====

Two more things, then we’ll stop here for today.

  1. There is strong evidence to suggest that Sadducees = Karaites = “Jewish Christians.”

This screenshot comes from this post: Hidden links between Khazars and Karaites – highly recommended to go back and read it, before we continue the discussion about ‘whitewashing Yoshki’.

====

Now I’m re-reading this (which was written from the Karaite perspective), it’s really jumping out to me that it’s saying there was a split between the zug of Shimon ben Shetach, the ABD, and ‘Ben Tabbai’ – who is the Yehudah Ben Tabbai who was the nasi.

And the students of ‘Ben Tabbai’ became the Karaites…

I think I need to see if I can find out more about Yehuda Ben Tabbai.

====

And second thing to note, is that at the time Shimon ben Shetach moved against Yoshki and his disciples, there was A LOT of witchcraft and black magic going on in Eretz Yisrael.

There’s an interesting discussion on the MiYodeya site HERE, that covers quite a bit of ground re: Shimon ben Shetach’s capture and subsequent execution of a large coven of witches.

What’s particularly interesting, is that this story comes as part of Rashi’s comments to Sanhedrin 44b – immediately after we had that censored discussion of how Yoshki misled people, used witchcraft, and had tight links with the malchut  – i.e. the murderous Sadducee King Alexander Jannai.

====

Here’s the full translated text, from HERE:

It once happened that an unscrupulous Jewish tax-farmer and a great scholar died on the same day and in the same place.

All the people assembled to attend the burial of the great scholar; at the same time the relatives of the tax-farmer brought his bier for burial. However, enemies attacked the cortège, so they all dropped the biers and ran for their lives. One student however stayed there guarding the body of his rabbi.

Some time later the town dignitaries returned to resume the burial of the great scholar, but the biers of the rabbi and the tax-farmer somehow got exchanged despite the vociferous protests of the student.

Thus it came about that the relatives of the tax-farmer buried the great rabbi, which greatly distressed the rabbi’s student; nor could he explain to himself what great sin had caused the one to be buried in such a shameful way and what great merit in the other had brought about his interment with such honour.

==

His rabbi appeared to him in a dream and told him not to be distressed.

“Come and let me show you how greatly I am honoured in paradise and let me also show you that man in hell with the hinges of the gates of hell turning through his ears. Once I heard people calumniating the sages and did not protest (and that is why I was punished); he once prepared a banquet in honour of a city dignitary who did not show up, and he distributed the food to the poor (and that is why he was rewarded).”

The student asked how long the poor man was doomed to suffer this grievous torment.

“Until Shim’on ben-Shataĥ dies,” was the reply, “who will then replace him!” “Why?” asked the student;

“Because there are Jewish women in Ashkelon who practice witchcraft and he does not subject them to the rigours of the law.”

The following day the student related his dream to Shim’on ben-Shataĥ.

==

The latter assembled eighty tall young men and distributed to each of them a jar with a cloak wrapped up inside (it was a rainy day).

He also told them to make sure that they were always eighty in number. “When you come inside,” he said, “one of you must raise his jar from the ground; from that moment the witches will have no further hold over you; if that does not work then we can never beat them.”

Shim’on ben-Shataĥ went into the witches’ coven and left the young men outside.

When the witches asked him who he was he replied that he was a wizard who had come to test them with his wizardry. “What tricks can you do?” they asked. “Despite the fact that it is raining today I can produce eighty young men with dry cloaks!” “Show us!” He went outside and beckoned the young men inside. They removed the cloaks from the jars, put them on, and came into the coven.

Thus they bettered the witches, took them outside and strung them all up.

==

The relatives of the witches were incensed.

Two of them came forward and perjured themselves by testifying that Shim’on ben-Shataĥ’s son had committed some crime that was punishable by death. He was condemned to death. As he was being taken out to be stoned he said, “If I am guilty of this crime may my death bring me atonement, and if I am innocent may it atone for all my other sins and the responsibility for my death will be on the shoulders of the witnesses.”

When the perjurers heard this they recanted their testimony and explained that they had only acted because of their animosity at the fate of their women-folk.

[Rashi on Sanhedrin 44b.]

====

It’s no coincidence that this story also relates to Jewish tax-farmers.

There is nothing new under the sun.

We’ll stop here in this post, but BH in the next post, we’ll take a closer look at who is trying to ‘whitewash Yoshki’ today, and how this might all start to tie together with much of the other information we’ve been learning on the blog, about who is really controlling the State of Israel, and our Jewish community, from the shadows.

Until then.

You might also like this article:

https://rivkalevy.com/the-hidden-links-between-khazars-and-karaites-part-2/

I can’t claim the credit for this piece of research, which was sent in by another reader.

It’s R’ Yehuda Fetaya’s discussion of the excorcism he performed of Shabtai Tzvi’s spirit, when it demonically possessed a Jewish man in Baghdad for 30 years.

Before we continue, I just wanted to make something clear:

We have nothing to fear from the truth.

Nothing at all.

‘Truth’ is Hashem’s seal, and whenever we are pursuing the truth for it’s own sake, and not just to win an argument or to big ourselves up, then that process of pursuing the truth, and loving the truth, brings us closer to Hashem.

Whatever the outcome of this process of trying to uncover the truth, it’s only going to be good.

We all know that the ‘world of lies’ has to fall, before the world of truth can truly be established and flourish.

Sometimes, dismantling all these lies is a painful and scary process. But once it’s completed, we’ll be ready to go forward into that world of truth, with no more ‘lies’ to keep pulling us away from Hashem, and our own souls.

====

So, here is what my correspondent sent me – thank you!

(English is not their first language, so please excuse any errors in their introduction, which I’m bringing here as it has some more clues about what is really going on, here.)

Dear Rivka, Are you familiar with the book by Rabbi Yehuda Fetaya – Minhat Yehuda?

This contains a large part about Ezekiel 37. The Rabbi told in this section about contacts he has with souls of the deceased. The Rabbi is in conversation with a certain Bechor, and indicates that the soul that speaks through him first says that he is David, the son of Shabbatai Zevi, but a little later he says he is Zevi himself!

Rabbi Fetaya then has a long conversation with him from many pages.

Below I display a short part from the book, translated by Avraham Leader, edited by Yehuda Herskowitz – Mechon Haktav Jerusalem 5770-2010.

==

Rabbi Fetaya: I asked  him more questions, and I am writing only the answers, since the questions will be obvious by the answers, and these were his answers:

I am Shabbetai Zevi

He died by strangulation.

He did not repent and was buried in a gentile cemetery.

When he was alive, the husks would appear before his eyes.

The reason he became wicked was because he was not conceived in holiness.

He was reincarnated in countless numbers of reincarnations.

He merited a psyche and a spirit, but when the soul began to flicker within him, what happened happened.

Now he concedes that Moses, our teacher, of blessed memory, was true, that his prophecy was true and that his Torah was true, but these words of his have no effect, since once a person has died he is exempt from the commandments [Shabbat 30a].

His reward for fulfilling the commandments is already credited to another righteous man.

The reason he speaks within the heart rather than through the mouth is because the aforesaid Bechor studies Torah, by means of which he subdues the spirit within him and causes it pain. This is why the spirit interrupts his studies and communicates to him foreign thoughts.

==

(He lied to me concerning this, because even though being occupied with Torah subdues the evil spirit, it does not cause the spirit to speak within the heart rather than through the mouth. Proof of this is that in the year 5675, a thirty-five year old maiden who was blind in both eyes came to see me. A sage who had lived in my lifetime who I knew and recognized, had become reincarnated in her. Although she was blind and did not study Torah, he spoke within her heart but not through her mouth.

During his lifetime, this sage had a questionable reputation. Now, too, he attempted to seduce the said maiden to behave promiscuously with another sage and told her that the Messaiah would be born from their Union, but she did not listen to him. After a number of unifications and efforts I managed to determine that it was indeed that infamous sage.

It became known to me that when they bathed his corpse [i.e. the corpse of the Sage], they noticed a tattoo on his heart resembling a cross.

==

The actual reason he [i.e. the Sage who was known to R’ Fetaya] did not speak through the mouth was so that he would not be recognized by the people and be ridiculed and mocked. See Sha`ar Hagilgulim, preface 22, 22a, where he writes:

These incarnations which possess people occur in one of two ways.

The First are the souls of the wicked, who have not merited entering hell after death. They enter the bodies of people who are alive in this World and recount all that has befallen them there, may the Merciful One deliver us. The second relates to their impregnation in a person, in accordance with the secret of Pregnancy, as previously mentioned in former discourses, and they cling to him very secretively.

Therefore, if that person sins, the soul impregnated in him overpowers him, causes him to sin and incites him down an evil path, etc.

See there. It could be that when the master wrote: they cling to him very secretively, it is for the reason we have already cited, so that they not be recognized and made a mockery by the people. Now, then, let us return to our tale [of Shabtai Tzvi.)

==

His spirit has been reincarnated in the aforesaid Bechor, but his psyche still resides among the beasts of the forest.

He would like to leave this place, never again to enter the body of a Jew, and go the forests.

He was thirty-five years old when he died. (Actually he was fifty, see Encyclopedia Judaica, Shabbetai Zevi.)

I asked him other questions, but he would not reply. All he told me was that he was presently enclosed with the Other Side, in a the thickness of approximately one cubit.

Five days later I spoke to him again, very gently, and I saw that he was subdued. He was bemoaning his transgressions. He entreated me exceedingly to effect a rectification for him, and blessed me and my family with many blessings. He said that in order to honor me he would speak only the truth.

The beginning of his downfall was when he sinned with  a married woman, and what I heard is true; he fornicated with a male while wearing a prayer shawl and phylacteries.

He also sent a young man to be with his own wife Sarah and explicitly commanded him, saying, “Whatever Sarah tells you, obey her.”

==

His beating in the grave lasted twelve years.

Until now he had been reincarnated in the beasts of the forest. This was his First reincarnation in a person, in the aforesaid Bechor.

The reason for having entered him was that he had kissed a Young girl when he was a young boy. It was now thirty years since he had entered him. Beforehand, he had circled around Bechor`s head, because he was from the same root (as written in Sefer Halikutim, Jeremiah 8:13:

What I gave them will pass away, (I will give them spirits) that will pass into a body that is close to them, according to the hidden meaning of: “Either his uncle or his cousin shall redeem him etc.” [Leviticus 25:49].

On account of the aforesaid kiss, he entered him.

He was condemned to be with the Nazarene in boiling feces from the second hour until the fourth and a half hour of Friday.

====

Lots of interesting things to pick up here.

Firstly, that Shabtai Tzvi partially shared the same punishment as Yoshki in gehinnom, being boiled in feces together – but only for 2 1/2 hours on a Friday.

And also, that he sinned because he was conceived in impurity.

I have a lot of stuff I’m currently going through about the SHACH’s ancestors, and a lot of surprising information to share with you on that score, too, but we’ll keep that for another post.

But the thing that really stood out for me was that reference to:

David, the son of Shabbatai Zevi

====

I have been reading through Sabbatean history for months and months, but so far, I haven’t come across any other references to ‘David, the son of Shabbatai Zevi’.

I still have 100 pages left to go in Gershom Scholem’s oeuvre, so maybe he’ll turn up there, we’ll see.

But in the meantime, in one of those strange strokes of serendipity, just before I got sent this email, I tripped across another family tree for the SHACH on geni that looks like this:

====

Number 1 is next to R’ Moses Isserles, the REMA.

I have actually been combing through the tangled knots of his family tree for quite a while now, as his family tree is at the heart of so many of what became the Sabbatean-Frankist network.

I will do a separate post on him soon, BH, but I’ve already found grandchildren for the REMA who appear to be Polish xtians, possibly related to Polish nobility.

And that’s only a bit of what I’m discovering.

==

Number 2 is next to ‘Shabsai Cohen – The Shach Kasvan’ – i.e. the SHACH.

And Number 3 is next to his son, ‘Dovid Kasvan’.

====

That’s when I recalled that I’d done a family tree a long time ago, when I was trying to figure out more of the tangled relationships around the SHACH, forwards and backwards, where I’d had a lot of question marks about what was going on with ‘Dovid Kasvan / Katvan’.

In that ‘other’ family tree, which you can see HERE, ‘David Katvan’ is meant to be the SHACH’s son-in-law, married to a daughter ‘Toyba’ or ‘Tova’.

Toyba / Tova’s other husband is an ‘Aharon Mi-Geza Tzvi’.

It’s that surname again.

====

So, which version is correct?

‘David Katvan’ the Shach S-I-L version says that his father is one ‘Yitzhak HaLevi Katvan of Prague‘ – and then he’s connected to nothing and no-one else after that.

At this stage, that always strikes me as invitation to dig deeper, especially as we’re dealing with a prominent, wealthy individual here, described in the Pinkas of the Zolkiew chevra kadisha as follows:

“[T]he leader of the province, officer, the head, sir, the wealthy.” [Rosenstein. The Lurie Legacy.]

Here’s the text that is brought to support that version of David Katvan’s family tree:

====

Meanwhile on the other side, the version that has ‘Dovid Kasvan’ as the SHACH’s actual son, the family tree shows that ‘Dovid Kasvan’s’ daughter marries this Yitzhak Babad mentioned above, the ABD of Brod.

====

They can’t both be right.

Why does this matter?

If you trace the descendants of ‘Dovid Katvan’, on the version of the SHACH’s family tree that has him as the son-in-law, it goes like this:

DOVID KATVAN > ELLA ANSCHEL marries R’ SIMCHA HAGADOL HACOHEN RAPPOPORT > R’ YOSEF RAPPOPORT > RIVKA marries R’ YITZHAK ITKOVITZ > RABBI CHAIM OF VOLOZHIN.

You probably heard of Rabbi Chaim of Volozhin.

He founded the Volozhin Yeshiva, where so many of the ‘big zionists’ – both secular and ‘religious’ apparently spent some time.

And he’s the ancestor of Shimon Peres.

Amongst many others.

One day, I’ll do a post on the links between the Volozhin Yeshiva, and all the people intimately connected to what became the nascent State of Israel and modern ‘Zionism’, because there are just so many of them….

====

In case you were wondering, the family tree for R’ Chaim of Volozhin is a total, utter mess.

The progression I set out for you above took me months and months of comparing data to get to, and I have the feeling that in the middle of that whole mess, we will probably find Rebbe Nachman’s grandfather, R’ Nachman Horodenka.

If you remember from THIS post, on Jacob Frank, the data seemed to be showing this:

Rabbi Nachman Horodenka, the grandfather of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov, appears to be the brother of R’ Chaim of Volozhin:

====

Because all this is so very deliberately convoluted, it could also be that Rabbi Nachman’s father, Simcha, is actually the brother of R’ Chaim of Volozhin. I’m still unpicking it.

====

But you can see that IFFFFF Shabtai Tzvi = SHACH, and IFFFFF Shabtai Tzvi /SHACH’s son was ‘David Katvan’, why a lot of effort would be put into rearranging the family tree, to try and cover that information up.

Because otherwise, we’d all know that the direct descendants of ‘Shabtai Tzvi’, in the person of Shimon Peres (and probably many others…) are still ruling the State of Israel in our days.

====

And that Rabbenu, our holy Rebbe, Rabbi Nachman of Breslov, was really the ‘light’ sent down into the midst of all that Sabbatean ‘darkness’ on his father’s side, to sweeten what was happening with his Torah and advice, so we’d be able to get through this ‘Sabbatean-Frankist’ onslaught of the last 200 years in one piece, spiritually.

And it also explains why Rebbe Nachman knew so much about the ‘Jewish Demon Torah Scholars’ in our midst, and why they all tried so hard to shut him up, destroy his teachings, and end his branch of chassidut.

Let’s stop there for now.

I have about 15 more family trees to ‘comb through’ again now, to try and figure this out a bit more.

But slowly, slowly, it’s all starting to come together.

Since I made the ‘Guntzburg’ connection to real Jewish history, more and more pieces of the puzzle are falling into place.

I had a couple of comments on the bottom of this blog post: Meet the Gunzburgs, that got me pondering more about the British Royal Families ‘Jewish roots’.

By ‘Jewish’, I of course mean ‘Frankist-Freemason’.

Everyone knows that the Royal Family circumcises their sons, for no obvious reason. And that the Queen Mother’s family are pretty ‘low down’ the pecking order, socially, not even appearing in the Peerage until a generation before the Queen Mother hit the jackpot.

And then, there’s the strange CO-IN-CID-ENCE that dafka saw this branch of the family become the ruling monarchs, when Edward VIII abdicated, apparently over the Wallis Simpson affair.

====

And then this morning, one of my friends sent me THIS, over email, pondering ‘what is this all about?’

I can’t answer that question directly, but here’s some more information that may help to fill in the bigger picture, of the links between some people in Israel, and some people in high places.

====

Let’s begin with a couple of the comments that got me thinking:

Ruth:

When I looked at the site in Russian of the “conspiracy theorist”, one of his theories is that Kate Middleton is Jewish from her mother’s Goldshmit side. When I try and check it, it seems to be split. Do you know more about this?

Daisy:

I had heard about that: and also that Princess Diana had some Jewish connections as well ( I can’t remember exactly how and from which side). If I recall ( I don’t have sources unfortunately), Kate also has Jewish lineage from her father’s side. And as you know the royal family has a Mohel, so if what I am saying is correct, and both mothers of the couple are Jewish, then what are the kids? Circumcise Jewish boys and their sisters?

====

So, that got me thinking, and this is what I replied:

If you go here:

https://www.geni.com/people/Charlotte-Sarah-Jane-Grimstead/6000000003934263554

You’ll see that the Queen Mother is a direct descendent of the Frankist Solomon Schorr (who I think is the husband of the Frankist ‘prophetess’ Chaya Schorr that Jacob Emden writes about), son of Elisha Shorr of Rohatyn.

That would make the Queen Mother and the Queen ‘Frankist Jewish’ descendants…

Here’s what it says underneath the geni profile:

Yehuda (Jan Fredyk) Wolowski (Shorr) of Rohatyn/ Rogatin took the name John Frederick Walsh in Ireland.

He was associated with the Walsh family of Barbados and their shipping business which may have been the reason the family chose Walsh as their Irish name. He and his wife were Frankists. He was in the Czestochowa prison with Jacob Frank in 1760. He was a son of Shlomo (Franciszek) Shorr (Wolowski).He was an ancestor of the late Queen Mother through two of his daughters. An attempt has been made to obscure this Walsh (Wolowski/ Shorr) ancestry.

====

Today, I decided to tootle around a bit more, and take a closer look at the Royal Family’s family tree – which we noted a while back, was also being curated by none other than Keith Lawrence Hanit.

(Who I’ve seen pop up in all the most interesting places in Jewish history, including the Vilna Gaon’s profile, to give just one example.)

 

====

So, I started tootling around, and quickly I got to THIS:

Well, fancy that!

I’ve been trying to track down Alexander Sender Shor, in real Jewish history, for almost two years.

Here’s what that geni discussion said, from 2016:

According to the “We’re Related” app recently offered by ancestry.com, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge is my ninth cousin, through his grandmother QEII. As I am Jewish I was rather surprised and skeptical, and thought perhaps ancestry had made a significant error in tracing their family tree.

The app indicates that Prince William and I are descendants of Alexander Sender Shor 1660-1737.

The profile for Mary (Miriam) Elizabeth Walsh (Wolowski) (Connor (Kinnor)) Mary Elizabeth Walsh, has no father listed. Interestingly it was added by Prince Harry of Wales on June 17, 2009. If you look at the revisions you will see that “Customer Service” made many deletions of relatives of this person just this past week.

Her husband Frederick Walsh also has no father listed. According to the “About” section his original name was Yehuda (Jan Fredyk) Wolowski (Shorr). The revisions also show that “Customer Service” made many deletions of his relatives this past week.

==

The deleted profiles include:

Captain John Walsh was deleted by Customer Service. Tue at 4:15 PM
Daniel Walsh (Wolowski) was deleted by Customer Service. Tue at 2:46 PM
Mary (Maria/ Miriam) Carpenter (Walsh (Wolowski)) was deleted by Customer Service. Tue at 2:46 PM
Michael (Michal) Walsh (Wolowski) was deleted by Customer Service. Tue at 2:46 PM
James Walsh (Wolowski) was deleted by Customer Service. Tue at 2:46 PM
Andrew Walsh (Wolowski) was deleted by Customer Service. Tue at 2:46 PM
Tue at 2:46 PM · view

Can anyone explain why this family line has been edited to break the chain of descent?

And is the British royal family in fact descended from a Jewish family from 17th century Lviv?

====

Of course, the geni gatekeepers were immediately all over Rhea Tannenbaum, the woman who asked the question, to tell her this:

Athol Bloomer is a descendent of Frankists, who also deliberately mixes up a lot of his information (especially to keep people away from the links with Chabad genealogy) – but over the last two years, I’ve independently corroborated a lot of the information that he’s published from separate sources that are nothing to do with him.

So, I decided to take a closer look.

====

Another Jewish lady also piped up, to say that Mary Elizabeth Walsh (Wolowski) was also popping up in her tree, connected to the Queen’s sister, Princess Margaret:

====

I went to look up who ‘Adele Astaire’ (Austerlitz) was, and I learn that she’s the sister of the entertainer Fred Astaire, and daughter of a Frankist father, who married Lord Charles Arthur Francis Cavendish.

Here’s a snippet from her Wikipedia page:

Adele Marie Austerlitz was born on September 10, 1896, in Omaha, Nebraska. Her parents were Johanna “Ann” Geilus, an American-born Lutheran of German descent, and Frederic “Fritz” Austerlitz, an Austrian-born Roman Catholic of Jewish descent. Adele’s younger brother, Fred Austerlitz, was born three years after her.

‘Roman Catholic of Jewish descent’ is a very good clue you are dealing with a Frankist.

And if you look at the family tree for Fritz Austerlitz, you’ll see he is deep, deep within known ‘Frankist family’ territory, including the Porges, Neustadtls and Schefteles (amongst others).

====

So, there is definitely at least one Frankist connection to the royal family there.

But here’s the thing: Charles Cavendish is no-where near the queen’s bit of the family tree, and doesn’t explain anything about how Mary Walsh Wolowski (Shor…) really does appear in Princess Margaret’s family tree.

Before we move on, it’s interesting to note that Adele Astaire’s second marriage was to one Kingman Douglass, who “briefly served as Assistant Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).”

It’s all connected.

Anyway, so let’s get back to Mary Walsh Wolowski (Shor), to see if we can figure out more of where the truth really lies here.

====

As always, with Frankist family trees, there’s a lot of confusion and deliberate misinformation going around.

For example, in THIS family tree we see that Mary Walsh (Wolowski) is Lord Glamis’s maternal grandma. In this version, Lord Glamis is the great-grandpa of the Queen Mother.

====

But in THIS version, we see that Mary Wolowski (Schor) is actually the mother of Lady Glamis, instead.

====

If you try and trace back what’s going on from the Queen Mother’s own family tree on geni, things get even more interesting:

Claude Bowes Lyon was the Queen Mother’s dad.

Mary Elizabeth Carpenter (Walsh) – is the Wolowski / Shor connection

And above them, there is another big, red flag that we are deep in Frankist territory – ‘Mary Ann Moran is meant to be Mary Elizabeth Walsh (Wolowski)’s mother’.

‘Moran’ is a known surname for some of the children of Jacob Frank, himself.

It’s short for ‘Moranu’ – our teacher.

====

But how do we know if these are genuine connections, and not just elements of Athol Bloomer’s fertile imagination?

Well, if you take the second family tree for Mary Walsh, and zoom out, this is what you discover:

====

The Queen Mother’s ancestress is in the same family tree as one ‘Mary Judith Montefiore’.

When I double-check HERE, with the family tree of Sir Moses Montefiore – Rothschild brother-in-law and proud freemason of the Premier Lodge in the UK, who was ALL OVER what became the modern State of Israel – I find her there, too:

====

The plot thickens.

I wrote a lot about some of those Jewish members of the Premier Lodge on the old blog who were contemporaries of Moses Montefiore. I didn’t get around to covering all of them, but here’s a little of what’s relevant, for today’s post:

Sampson Eardley, the 1st Baron Eardley.

‘Baron Eardley’s’ dad is a man called Sampson Gideon.

According to Wikipedia, Sampson Gideon bankrolls George I’s brutal suppression of the ‘Jacobite Rising of 1745’.

Sampson Gideon basically gave George I (aka ‘Gog’) the money he needed to stamp out the last of the ‘Jacobite’ uprisings in the UK, that were trying to put a Stuart back on the English throne. Gideon’s grand-dad was one Rowland Gideon, aka Rohiel Abudiente, whose own father was Moses Abudiente, a Portuguese crypto Jew who moved from Lisbon to Gluckstadt, near Hamburg / Holstein.

The Abudientes made their massive fortune primarily from slave-operated sugar plantations in Barbados, Antigua and Nevos.

They move their operations around, to avoid paying tax. And they also branched out into many other areas of international trade and commerce.

====

Rowland Gideon was married to one Esther de Porto, the daughter of Domingo (Avraham) de Porto, who was a diamond buyer working out of Madras – the stamping ground of another (secret crypto Jew), Eliyahu Yale.

The de Porto family were also intertwined with the Mocatta family – the direct ancestors of the Frankist / Sabbatean point man, Sir Moses Montefiore.

This comes from the Jewish Virtual Library:

MOCATTA, English family of Marrano origin. MOSES MOCATTA (d. 1693), who came from Amsterdam, appears in a Bevis Marks (London) synagogue list in 1671. He was a diamond broker and merchant. His granddaughter REBECCA married as her second husband Moses Lumbrozo de Mattos.

Their son ABRAHAM (d. 1751), (who added the name Mocatta and later dropped Lumbrozo de Mattos) joined with Asher Goldsmid to found Mocatta and *Goldsmid, later bullion brokers to the Bank of England, engaging in enormous transactions.  Abraham Mocatta had 11 children (including Rachel, mother of Sir Moses *Montefiore).

====

Guess what?

If you go HERE, you’ll see how the Sephardic ‘de Porto’ family morphed into the Gunzburg family, when they moved across to East Europe, via Ulmo in what is now the Netherlands, and went full-on Ashkenazi.

It’s amazing how all roads lead back to the same people.

If you go here: The Gunzburg family , you’ll find another detailed post about this family on Encyclopedia.com, which helps to fill in more of the details.

====

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.

====

So, Moses Montefiore is how I first ‘fell into’ this whole Frankist-Freemason saga.

The whole can of worms started to open when I realised that one of Jacob Frank’s daughters, Sarah Judith Jacob, married someone called ‘Francis Rogers Kissane’ – who comes from a Jewish-catholic family of Spanish and Portuguese descent.

Here’s a screenshot from rootsweb.com from 2 years ago – I can’t seem to find it now, it could be they have scrubbed this information off, already:

====

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’.

====

Let me sum up what I just told you, then we’re going to bring it back around, to the ‘Mary Walsh’ we have in the Queen Mother’s family tree:

> 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 SarahJacob 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’, who was the son of Yehuda Wolowski Schorr, the son of Elisha Schor.

>Captain John Walsh’s sister was a woman named Charlotte Sarah Jane Grimstead. She was the mother of Charlotte Lyon-Bowes, whose son, Claude Bowes-Lyon is the paternal grandfather of the present Queen of Britain, Elizabeth II.

====

Or to put it another way, the Lubavitcher Rebbe and the Queen seem to both be related to the infamous ‘Shor’ family.

There’s still a lot more to figure out here, and there is a lot of disinformation still, to try and birur.

But let me leave you with this, from HERE:

====

It shows that Jacob Frank’s son, ‘Rabbi Yekutiel Yehuda Zalman Leib Reizel’ (Jacobi) married Chava Rivlin, the daughter of one Benjamin Rivlin.

Their son, James Moran, apparently became the leader of a large group of Frankists in Liverpool, UK, around 200 years ago – and he married one ‘Johanna Rodriguez Galvan de Leon’.

I’m willing to bet good money this is the same family that (freemason-Frankists) Moses Montefiore and his brother-in-law, Nathan Mayer Rothschild, married into, when it changed its name to “Levi Barrow-Cohen.”

====

Let’s stop there for now.

If you ask me, the chances are pretty high that the Freemason-Frankists managed to get a Shorr descendant onto the British throne.

But, I think that’s not even the real story here.

As I keep saying, the Freemason-Frankists are only the latest in a very long line of ‘xtianising-crypto Jews’ who have been controlling the Jewish community for a very long time, and they seem to have closer links with European royal families and the church, than they do with the ‘Jewish street’.

As events continue, I think that finally, more and more of us are going to start figuring that out.
