Ireland’s first head of state (and Yitzhak Herzog’s ‘chevruta’) was a man named Eamon de Valera.

If you had your cup of coffee this morning, you probably will have already recognised something strange:

The man’s name is Spanish, not Irish.

====

Again, I’m going to write this post the ‘short way’ instead of the long way with 3,000 bits of evidence, so feel free to conduct your own research to verify this in more detail.

You can find ‘Eamon de Valera’s geni page HERE.

He is the son of one Juan Vivian de Valera, and a woman named Catherine Coll, that I can’t find much about.

But already, I’m scratching my head wondering how the son of someone who is OBVIOUSLY SPANISH becomes a leading Irish nationalist, ‘chevruta’ of Yitzhak Herzog, and head of his government and State.

====

So, I start going back through his family tree, to see if I can spot any of the names I’ve become familiar with, in my research into the Erev Rav families that took over the Jewish community many centuries ago….

And whaddya know?

He’s a direct descendant of the ‘Sepulveda’ family.

====

I know you currently don’t know why that’s a big deal, so let’s put in the next bit of the puzzle.

When I was researching all the Sabbatean-Frankist families, right at the beginning I came across a very weird ‘link up’ that at the time, I couldn’t make sense of.

It looked like leading ‘Rabbinic Families’ in Poland were marrying into leading ‘Catholic’ families in Spain and Portugal – many years AFTER they’d come back out of the ‘Jewish closet’ and were apparently practising orthodox Jews, and ‘Chief Rabbis’ of the Jewish community.

Like this:

====

Notice the name: SEPULVEDA.

Notice that this isn’t just happening once, it’s a repeated thing down the generations, that these ‘externally orthodox’ Jews marry these ‘externally catholic’ non-Jews.

Let’s take a closer look at the first woman, Leah Weil / Wahl.

Her parents are: Rabbi Samuel Uri Shraga Weil / Wahl, and Braunle Lippe.

Her siblings are:

  • Jekoff Jakob Weil
  • Dinah Zak (Zera Kodesh)
  • Rabbi Moshe Meir Wahl
  • Ascher Lemle Weil

====

Dina Zak marries ‘Abraham Zak I of Ostrog’.

This couple is at the heart of pretty much every Sabbatean-Frankist family tree I look at, and they probably also have another name: R Abraham the Hanukat HaTorah, who marries Dina Wahl, the great-grand-daughter of ‘Saul Wahl, King of Poland for a Day’.

Why have a double-identity?

Because this family is in the middle of the Sabbatean-Frankist family tree, they are in the middle of all the ‘royal intrigues’, they intersect with the (Karaite…) Shors, they intersect with the Isserles, with the Gunzburgs – and they connect straight up to all those ‘false messiahs’ I keep writing about here, at least on the Jewish side of the equation.

====

Dina’s other husband is Naftali Katz, the ‘Peirot Ginosar’, and grandson of the Maharal of Prague.

Remember this, from the ‘Exilarch-Karaite-Kahanas’ family tree?

====

Naftali Katz connects straight into the SHACH / Shabtai Tzvi HaKohen-Katz matrix of Sabbateans.

And so, that is reason enough to try and hide the real identities and connections of Dina and Abraham, leaving aside how they were marrying apparently catholic ‘Sepulvedas’.

====

Back in her incarnation as ‘Dina Zak Zera Kodesh’, she and ‘Abraham Zak I’ have a son called:

Rabbi Meir Zak II, otherwise known as MENACHEM MENDEL ZAK.

His grand-daughter, Esther Sheindel, marries the Sabbatean magician who burnt down the Jewish Quarter in Frankfurt with his black magic, Naftali Katz II, the ‘Semichat HaChamim’ we talked about HERE.

Meanwhile, Esther Sheindel’s brother is ‘R Aharon Me-Geza Tzvi’, from the root of ‘Shabtai Tzvi’ – who happens to marry Toyba, daughter of the SHACH…

====

This leads us straight into all those lovely Freemason-Frankists, we keep writing about here.

And remember, all our ‘Chief Rabbis’, Presidents of Israel, and most of the Prime Ministers also come from this exact same family, which also includes the Rothschilds, the Schiffs and the Montefiores (and pretty much all the ‘chassidic Rebbes’….)

It’s the same frigging people, every single time.

====

OK, let’s get back to the SEPULVEDAS, as there is more to learn still.

So, Dina Zak’s sister, Leah, marries a ‘SEPULVEDA’.

And she has a son, called JUAN ISAAC SEPULVEDA.

Here he is – note his nice black hat:

====

His wife, Deborah, comes from another family you’ve probably heard of, the MEISELS.

She is meant to be the daughter of ‘Rabbi Chaim Meisels of Brody’ and Hendel Meyer – but again, this branch of the family tree is a total mess.

(I  have a hunch that ‘R Chaim Meisels of Brody’ is also ‘R Avraham Chaim Shor’, who strangely went missing out the family tree right around this time….we’ll see if that pans out.)

If we start poking around, we get to a different, more accurate, family tree for ‘Rabbi Chaim Meisels of Brody’, HERE.

 

====

The reason I highlighted that bit in yellow, about Rabbi Shmuel Zvi Hersh Naftali Sirkis-Yaffe, is because that guy descends from the step-son of the TAZ, Aryeh Leib Sirkin (aka the ‘Shaagat Aryeh’).

We’ll come back to him another time, as there is a whole letter in Scholem’s book on Shabtai Tzvi, that describes the meeting of Aryeh Leib Sirkin with Shabtai Tzvi in Turkey – and how he and the Taz’s son were convinced of his ‘messiah-ness’.

I spent a whole day unpicking the Sabbatean descendants of Aryeh Leib Sirkin, and I will lay that out in detail soon.

But in the meantime, here is one of them.

And ‘Deborah Meisels’ marries Juan Isaac SEPULVEDA.

====

Let’s now take a quick look at their descendants.

Deborah and Juan Isaac have a son called Juan Jose SEPULVEDA.

He marries a woman called Ana Maria – and her brother becomes the ruler of newly-conquered Chile, ‘Mint Master’ in perpetuity, and apparently makes a ton of money in the slave trade.

His name is:

Francisco Javier García y Alonso de Huidobro, 1er Marqués de Casa Real

Snippet from Google translated Spanish Wikipedia page, HERE:

Francisco Garcia Huidobro… was the son of Pedro Manuel Garcia Zorrilla and Francisca Antonia Alonso de Huidobro. Between the years 1726 and 1737, belonged to one of the two merchants in the century[?], bought slaves in Buenos Aires and re-sold in Chile and Peru. This business allowed him to amass a large fortune.

====

Pay attention.

Slave trading (aka HUMAN TRAFFICKING], ‘Mint Master’ and Erev Rav pretend Jews with links to ‘royalty’ ALWAYS go together.

No matter which part of the world we look at.

====

OK, let’s take a look at another interesting SEPULVEDA, and then we’ll wrap this up.

Around the same time that the Catholic Sepulvedas were marrying the (pretend Jewish…) Wahls and Meisels back over in Poland, another member of the family was busy writing the case law that would justify Spanish enslavement of the whole, so-called, ‘New World’.

His name was:

Juan Ginés de Sepúlveda.

HERE is his Wikipedia page, and here is a relevant snippet:

The Valladolid Debate was organized by King Charles V to give an answer to the question whether the indigenous peoples of the Americas were capable of self-governance, during the Spanish colonization of the Americas.

Sepúlveda defended the position of the colonists, although he had never been to America, claiming that some Amerindians were “natural slaves” as defined by Aristotle in Book I of Politics.

“Those whose condition is such that their function is the use of their bodies and nothing better can be expected of them, those, I say, are slaves of nature. It is better for them to be ruled thus.” He said these natives are “as children to parents, as women are to men, as cruel people are from mild people”….

According to Bartolomé de las Casas, God had power over all people in the world, including those who had never heard of Christianity. However, he thought that Christianity should be presented to natives as a religious option, not an obligation as Sepulveda believed.

 

 

Las Casas said that Amerindians ought to enjoy the same freedoms as any other people because, in his view, no Amerindians lacked the ability to rule themselves.

====

I got sent something a little while back that suggests that the whole ‘African slave trade’ in the USA is a red herring.

And that the REAL slave trade there was in the indigenous peoples of America – the Amerindians – many of whom were very dark skinned.

The tale was told that ‘the slaves’ all originated in Africa, so the slaves would never try to reclaim their land again, because they’d have no idea that it was really their land, legally.

That had been stolen from them by the Spanish conquerors of the so-called (and totally mis-named) ‘New World’.

I  haven’t bottomed all of that stuff out yet, so I’m just putting it here as something to check further into.

====

Here’s what my contact, M., sent me, take a listen, make up your own minds, do your own research, if this interests you:

The blacks in America (and I am speaking as an American) are the indigenous American Indians. the only slaves that ever came to America by boat to be permnant indentures were white people from Europe and North Africa. That’s it.
There was no racialization of slavery.
The reason they “freed” blacks is because they were the Indian confederacy members that were prisoners of war and brought into the corporation system. Before the civil war people applied for citizenship within their state or tribal confederacy which was autonomous.
That is why you have a “free white person” category. Because persons of color were the tribal confederacies.
The “Native Americans” today are Tribal corporations that do business with US. Inc. They can be found in the IRS database. They are corporate businesses. the Native Americans were not “wiped out”. they were replaced and reclassified and their leaders voluntarily built the corporate DC system afterward….

Watch this too. The Paugusett tribe is a very REAL tribe. not a Tribal Corporation.

====

In the course of doing this post, I just tripped over some more massive information about how our ‘big rabbis’ in Poland, the banksters and ‘Chief Rabbis’ in the UK, and the people traffickers, merchants and ‘false messiahs’ all come from exactly the same, very small, gene pool.

I think I just found a whole bunch of ‘missing links’ and crypto Jews, which is really going to start to round out this picture, in real time.

Because eventually, all the lies come tumbling down.

Even when you’ve been telling them for 2,000 years.

I just had a fairly massive breakthrough in all the ‘false messiah family tree’ stuff.

I’ve been reading some of the family history books of a man called ‘Allen Goldenthal’, a self-confessed ‘Zadokite’ (Sadducee) and Karaite. who’s done a ton of work on his family tree, and also has ‘inherited memories’ from his ancestors that he can apparently access.

If that sounds weird, remember that epigenetics really is a thing, scientifically.

And also remember that as always, all this information has to continually be birur-ed and verified independently, to try and shake out more of the actual truth.

With those caveats out the way, lets dive in.

====

Very long story short, Goldenthal is a descendant of the Kahana clan, an ancient family of Kohens who were Sadducees (‘Zadokites’) in Second Temple times, before morphing into that anti-orthodox sect of ‘Karaites’ we’ve been writing about here.

You can read more about the Kahana family tree HERE.

Notably, Goldenthal includes some detailed family trees that pinpoints some of his Karaite ancestors intermarrying with apparently non-Jewish aristocracy, while others marry into leading families of ‘Rabbinic Jewry’, including one Kahana ancestor who marries Raisel Heller, the daughter of Yom Tov Lipmann Heller.

I am still picking through his books to do the birur, so for now let’s leave the personal stories alone – although many of them are eye-popping – and take a closer look at this family of ‘Kahana’ Sadduccee-Karaites with royal connections and a very pronounced heretical streak, who hate authentic Torah Judaism as codified by the Sages of the Gemara.

====

One of the claims that Goldenthal made, repeatedly, about his ancestors is that they embodied some prophecy, about the ‘rod and the sceptre’ being brought together.

The ‘rod’ refers to the priesthood, the rod of Aharon HaKohen, the first Kohen HaGadol.

The ‘sceptre’ refers to the monarchy, specifically, descent from King David.

I can’t find this prophecy in Jewish sources, I don’t know if it’s a Christian thing.

But according to Goldenthal, his family of ‘Kahanas’ bring together the ‘rod’ of the priesthood (i.e. descent from Kohanim) together with the ‘sceptre’ of being descended from King David, and as a result, they have been in the middle of so many disturbing episodes of Jewish history, particularly in relation to the ‘false messiahs’ that have plagued us since the time of Yoshki.

====

Now, let’s change gear, and go and take a look at some of the people Goldenthal identifies as being on that Sadducee-Karaite-Kahana family tree.

A key place to start is a guy called Hananya “Bustenai” ben Haninai, Exilarch & Gaon of Pumbeditha.

For those that don’t know, from the time the Jewish people were first exiled to Babylonia under Nevuchadnezzer, we were governed by our own lay Jewish leader, or ‘community king’, who was known as the Exilarch.

This Exilarch typically claimed descent from the House of King David – and a lot of them were very corrupt, spiritually.

Even when some of the Jews returned to build the Second Temple under Ezra and Nehemia, many Jews stayed behind in galut, and the office of ‘Exilarch’ continued until the 1100’s CE.

So.

What’s really interesting about this line of ‘Exilarchs’ is that they apparently intermarried over and over again with the exiled High Priests, including these Sadduccee-Karaite-Kahanas that Goldenthal says he is descended from.

====

Let’s take a closer look at ‘Hananya ‘Bustenai’ ben Haninai’s family tree, HERE.

Here’s a snippet of some of the stories told about him, translated from Hebrew Wikipedia, HERE:

Bustanai (d. 660/5) was the first Exilarch to be recognized by Arab rule. His birth and much of his life is surrounded by legend. As a token of appreciation, Caliph Ali gave him the daughter of the Persian king Yazdeger (Yazadagird III of Parthia ) for a slave. Eventually Bustanai married her.

His first wife, Adoa, a Davidic Jewish princess (relative), had two sons: Hisdai I & Baradai;

His 2nd wife, Dara or Azdadwar Izdundad or Izdadwar daughter of Zamaspdukht and King Shahrijar III of Persia. The Parthi princess, had three sons: (a) Hisdai II , (b) Nehemiah , and (c) Haninai [Hananiah], who was “exilarch” of Sura 689-694.

====

Let’s sum up as we go along, as there is a lot of astounding ground to cover here.

Exilarch Bustainai had two wives.

One of them was Jewish – Adoa – and one of them was not.

The non-Jewish wife was either Dara, the daughter of King Charlemagne of the Holy Roman Empire, or she was Izdundad, a Persian princess.

Either way, there was a massive disagreement about whether Bustainai converted this wife to Judaism (if he was a Karaite, he probably wouldn’t have bothered, as they believe Jewish descent occurs via the father.)

====

We will come back to Bustainai’s non-Jewish wife and children another time, there are a lot of big secrets hiding out there.

But in the meantime, I want to draw your attention to another big debate going on,  about how Bustainai could claim to ALSO be a Kohen descended from the High Priests, and ALSO claim to be descended from King David.

HERE‘s a snippet of the discussion going on on Geni, about how all that actually is meant to be working. I’ll sum up the main point afterwards, don’t worry if you lose the thread here.

There is a major ambiguity in the paternity/maternity of Haninai al-Nehar Pekkod. In this profile he is the son of Hananya “Bustenai” ben Haninai, Exilarch & Gaon of Pumbeditha and Princess Adai binte Assad Bin Hashim which would make his sons part of the Davidic-Exilarch line.

BUT there is also Chanania bar Chaninai HaKohen who is the son of Chaninai Achunai bar Hunai HaKohen and Adda (or Addoi) daughter of Bustenai making him a Cohen. So in the first instance he is the Davidic son of Bustenai and his spouse Adai, and in the second he is the Cohanic son of Bustenai’s daughter Adoi and her HaCohen spouse.

If you follow the descending lines you will see they both lead to Natronai bar Hillay: 1) Naṭronay bar Hilay (Hillel), Gaon of Sura and 2) Natronai bar Hilay HaKohen, Gaon of Sura In the first profile there is no Cahonic title, while in the second he is HaKohen. This is an important point for those studying the descending lines of Bustenai.

====

Another user basically explains that:

It was suggested very recently by someone in this discussion, that this paternal lineage is indeed that of kohanim, and that these people are one and the same and this lineage of gaonim although not formally of the House of David, still uses this title “inherited” from a mother to maintain their prestige among the populous.

====

To sum this up, this chain of ‘gaonim’ descend from the Exilarchs of the House of King David only via their mother, but are actually Sadducee-Karaite-Kohanim.

So far, Goldenthal’s claims stand up.

Here’s why all this matters: This line of people lead to pretty much all the interesting people I’ve been writing about here on the blog, and also seem to have produced all the ‘false messiahs’ we’ve also been writing about here on the blog, in the so-called ‘Ashkenazi’ world.

THAT is why they were so keen to hang on to their ‘yichus’ of descending from the House of David, even though it was just via their mothers, because that is a pre-requisite to be Moshiach, and Kohanim – even very powerful Kohanim who repeatedly intermarry with non-Jewish aristocracy and place their scions in the position of ‘Chief Rabbi’ down the centuries – just can’t claim.

====

So, I start scrolling forward to see who this ‘Bustenai’ guy’s descendants are, and basically, we hit the jackpot here.

Let’s list some of the descendants you have heard of, and also some that you haven’t heard of:

Rabbenu Gershom (960-1040)

The REBAN, R’ Eliezer ben Natan (1090-1170)

And in the exact same bit of that family tree, we have someone called ‘R Yehuda ben Moshe HaKohen’, or ‘SIRE LEONTIN’, the grand-dad of the REBANs wife.

====

Here’s more about this ‘Sire Leontin’ and his family:

The Radhanites (al-Rādhāniyya) were Jewish [Qaraite and Rabbinic] merchants believed to have originated in the ninth century in the region of Rādhān, a district in southern Iraq. Their trade routes… stretched from China to the Iberian Peninsula…

[T]he Radhanites knew six languages and traded in slaves, silk, furs, and swords, as well as musk, aloe wood, camphor, and cinnamon.

You got that, that we are dealing with ‘Kohen Karaites’ here, who were trading slaves, amongst other things, and almost certainly were doing business with the Khazars?

We already discussed the links between the Karaites, who were intermarrying with the fake ‘Al-Kohen’ Khazar kings HERE, HERE and HERE.

Now we have to ask: were luminaries like Rabbenu Gershom (who outlawed kitniyot for the Ashkenazim, despite apparently being a Persian!!) a secret Karaite too?

The mind boggles.

Let’s continue, there’s way more.

====

Click forward a bit from the REBAN and his Karaite in-laws, and we find that the REBAN’s daughter marries one ‘R Elyakim ben Yehuda’.

Their immediate descendants include a bunch of French Tosafists, including the Baal HaTurim:

====

Click forward a bit more, and we get to Haim Henschel Isserlein, the ancestor of the ISSERLES clan, including the REMA.

====

But the links are deliberately broken between this group of ‘Karaite’ descendants and the REMA and his family on Geni.

Because they don’t want you and me knowing that the same very small group of Sadducee-Karaite-fake-Kohanim have been exclusively running the show in the Jewish world for more than 2,000 years.

Remember, we were all scratching our heads wondering how the REMA could have married Golda, whose father Shalom Shakna Kahana was a Karaite?

Well…. now we’re starting to figure more things out, here.

====

In that exact same family tree HERE, we find some more people you may recognise:

Levenshtams, Schors, and Oyzers – all there, in the Exilarch-Karaite family tree.

Tov.

I get carried away with all this, and I know others don’t follow so easily, so let’s stop this side of the research, and go back to someone else who descends from these Exilarch-Karaite-Kohanim, that you will recogise, namely:

The Maharal of Prague.

====

Go HERE to see how that plays out, this is a screenshot:

====

This genealogy connecting the MAHARAL to these Karaite-Exilarchs has been deliberately scrubbed.

As I’m wondering why, my eye scrolls a little further down, and the mystery is at least partially solved:

====

False Messiah Jacob Frank was a direct descendant of the Maharal of Prague!!!!

And our ‘historians’ knew this, and have deliberately lied about it repeatedly, telling us ridiculous stories about how he was just some ‘merchant’ from a Sabbatean family.

You’ll notice that the Alter Rebbe’s family is close mishpocha to Jacob Frank.

We already knew that from previous detective work, but it’s good to see it set out here, and also reinforces how it could be that the 4th Rebbe of Chabad could marry the grand-daughter of the notorious Jacob Frank.

====

But there’s still more surprises to come.

I scroll down a bit more, and I finally get to a paternal line for Jacob Frank, that looks like this:

====

WHAT?!?!?!

‘Yehuda Leib of Prossnitz’ was a very famous Sabbatian false messiah, who counted R Meir Eisenstadt, the ‘Ponim Meir’, and Jonathan Eybshutz amongst his very closest Sabbatean students.

See the Jewish Virtual Library HERE for more info, snippet:

Judah Leib was widely credited with magical practices connected with his attempts to bring to an end the dominion of *Samael and is reported to have sacrificed a chicken as a kind of bribe to the unclean powers.

The facts concerning this and his promise to reveal the Shekhinah to some of his followers, including Eisenstadt, are shrouded in legend, but they contain some kernel of historical truth.

Since by then he was widely considered by his foes to be a sorcerer, Eisenstadt left him and Prossnitz was put under a ban by the rabbinical court and sentenced to exile for three years; however, he was allowed to return after several months.

He persisted at the head of a secret Shabbatean group in Prossnitz, again working as a children’s teacher. Maintaining connections with other Shabbateans, in 1724 he tried to obtain the appointment of one of his closest followers, R. Sender, to the rabbinate of Mannheim…

Jonathan *Eybeschuetz, a pupil of Meir Eisenstadt in Prossnitz for several years, is said to have studied secretly with Judah Leib, who was then propagating teachings close to the radical wing of Shabbateanism.

====

WHAT?!?!?!?

THIS is Jacob Frank’s father?!?!?!?

Of course, it ties in perfectly with everything else we’ve learnt, and it makes perfect sense, but what shocks me the most is the level of cover-up we are dealing with here.

Jonathan Eybshutz and the Meir Panim were buddying around with JACOB FRANK’S FATHER, and of course, Jacob Frank spring-boarded off his father’s Sabbatean ‘false messiah-ness’ to even lower depths of depravity.

It all makes perfect sense now, also including how Jacob Frank could have married the daughter of another Sabbatean sorcerer, Samuel Chaim Falk, and how Jonathan Eybshutz’s son Wolf would be a Frankist / rival false messiah to Jacob Frank.

====

Sigh.

Just think, how our ‘rabbis’ and historians, religious and secular, have been so falsifying real Jewish history for the last 250…350…500…2,000 years.

Also, pay attention how this family of ‘Exilarch-Karaite-Kohanim’ are the source of EVERY SINGLE FALSE MESSIAH WE’VE HAD TO DEAL WITH, splintering and weakening the Jewish people from within.

And that is still happening today, BTW.

====

I will stop there for now, but I guarantee you I can also fit Shabtai HaKohen SHACH / Shabtai Tzvi easily into this picture.

And a lot of other pieces of the puzzle are starting to move more into place.

But I don’t want to explode your brains – or mine – so, we’ll let all this sink in a bit more before seeing what other revelations we kind find in that ‘Kahana’ family tree.

It sure is nice to have all the research start to be verified like this, tho, I have to say.

We really are being ruled by these Sadduccee-Karaite-Sabbatean-Frankists….

And after 2,000+ years of this, it’s time that finally changed.

====

UPDATE:

There’s a lot more information about the links between Eybshutz and Prossnitz on the Kotzk blog HERE, including snippets of letters written by Jacob Emden and Eybshutz himself.

For a long time, me and my husband struggled with the concept of the ‘ideal way to serve Hashem’.

We were reading chassidic stories about Tzaddikim, reading biographies of Lithuanian ‘Godols’, reading the works of people like R’ Eliyahu Dessler, and in the middle of all that, one thing was clear:

No-one was writing books about real people trying to serve Hashem sincerely in a real way, including all of life’s inevitable ups and downs.

Unfortunately, we only got to that conclusion much later in the process.

And in the meantime, we tried so hard to follow this ‘pretend perfect’ religious path that was set out for us, that my husband quit his job to learn Torah and ‘pray for parnassa’ six hours a day.

Like his teacher was encouraging him to do.

====

Long story short, we ran out of money after about two months, and ended up having to sell our house.

Of course we did.

For a few years after that happened, I struggled with so much anger and bitterness and confusion, especially about the people who encouraged us to do all that.

But at this stage, I’m realising that hard as it was to go through that experience, it’s given me a very deep insight in to what I now call ‘fake emuna’.

And now that I’ve been knee-deep in all the false ideologies, and ‘not quite right’ religious ideas that sound theoretically ok, or great!!! even – but which just don’t work for real people leading real lives, I’m seeing that was a necessary part of this learning process.

====

When I first started reading the books about Rabbi Nachman of Breslov’s life, I was immediately struck by how ‘real’ they were.

Rabbi Nachman also struggled with difficult feelings and emotions.

His discussions with his family about going to Israel for a long trip were portrayed in stark colours, with no candy-coating the worry and fears his wife had about the whole enterprise.

In short, there weren’t a lot of ‘open miracles’ and ‘big Tzaddik’ stuff in the books.

But Rav Natan summed it up so nicely when he said that Rebbe Nachman’s biggest miracle was Rav Natan himself – i.e. his ability to have a real relationship with God, and to keep working on overcoming his bad middot, by following Rabbenu’s advice.

====

At this stage, it seems Rabbenu was pretty much the only ‘Tzaddik’ of that time who encouraged his students to portray him in a real, truthful light.

And that is at least part of why I mostly can’t stand to read standard ‘gadol biographies’ these days, and why when I hit Breslov, it was like a deep draught of water for a very thirsty soul.

And it still is.

At least, Rav Berland’s bit of it.

====

So now, what does all this have to do with R’ Zushia of Annipoli?

Before we get into that, let me just state that none of this is black-or-white. That’s a false paradigm, designed to push everyone into corners fighting for ideas and principles that are unrealistic and untruthful. At this stage, I still believe R’ Zushia was probably a big tzaddik – until and unless I get new information that clearly shows that’s not the case.

BUT.

He was also a real person.

Like all these ‘tzaddikim’ actually were and are.

And real people struggle all the time to do the right thing, and to serve God, even if that is what they sincerely want to be doing with themselves.

====

So, a few days ago, I decided to take a closer look at the Noam Elimelech and Rav Zushia, as part of my ongoing effort to figure out what was really going on in the Jewish world 200 years ago.

The first stop was the GENI page for Rav Zushia, which you can see for yourselves HERE.

That gave me Rav Zushia’s ‘official’ name, R’ Meshullam Zusia Lipman, of Annipol, who lived between 1718-1800.

====

Long story short, again, two clicks later I realised that both Rav Zushia and the Noam Elimelech appear to be brothers, or possibly nephews, of the notorious Jacob Frank.

Of course, that’s not written there on Geni:

But I’ve been poring over these names for so long now, they are engraved in my brain.

And when the name ‘MARGOLA SHOR / FRANKEL-HALPERN’ popped up as the ‘grandma’ in the tree of Rav Zushia and the Noam Elimelech, that immediately tripped off the JACOB FRANK alert.

The Shor / Halprin / Heilprin /Halpern family tree is a deliberate mess, to make it so hard to track all this down.

But I’ve been doing a lot of work on this, scribbling down more and more family trees as I go, and while I’m still not sure which names are ‘real’ and which names are the ‘aliases’, I can tell you for sure, that Reb Zushia and the Noam Elimelech are VERY close family to Jacob Frank, and probably even his brothers.

====

Again, remember the wider context to all this.

The BESHT came to ‘sweeten’ all those pockets of Shabtai Tzvi / SHACH’s followers, which were far more widespread and embedded in ‘Jewish royalty’ than anyone cares to admit.

Most, if not all, of the BESHT’s disciples came directly from strong, secretly-Sabbatean families.

The Baal Shem Tov managed to ‘sweeten’ a great deal with his teachings, and to bring the mystical back into normative Judaism in a ‘kosher’ way, after what happened with Shabtai Tzvi / SHACH’s perversion of very deep kabbalistic teachings.

BUT.

He didn’t manage to sweeten all the Sabbateans.

And Jacob Frank (and Jonathan Eybshutz…) were still beavering away, trying to forge an even more disgusting version of Sabbatean beliefs, that ultimately became what we know as ‘Frankism’.

But Sabbatean-Frankists and the BESHTs disciples were effectively the same people, at the beginning of the birur process.

Just some went to the side of ‘good’, while others didn’t.

(Let’s park the whole argument about chassidut vs mitnagdim for now. I have come to the conclusion that the followers on all sides of that debate were probably secret Sabbateans, or at least, carrying on from where Shabtai Tzvi / SHACH left off, and that the argument was more about WHICH PATH OF ‘CHASSIDUT’ TO TAKE, which person to follow after, and not ‘chassid vs mitnag’, as we’ve all been led to believe.)

====

So.

It’s not really at all surprising that a ‘R Zushia’ and a ‘Noam Elimelech’ could actually be the brothers of Jacob Frank.

But once I saw that, I started to wonder a lot more about all the stories we’re told about R Zushia in particular – stories that personally, I used to really love.

Like THIS one, about how Reb Zushia would never ask his servants to feed him directly, but would also ask Hashem to provide, while the servants brought in the food and drink.

One time, his servants decided to teach him a lesson, that it was really them who was bringing him the food, so they pretended not to hear him, when he walked around saying ‘Zushia is hungry’.

Here is what happened next:

The visitor arrived at the Rebbe Reb Zushia’s home in time to hear him say, “Ribono shel Olam! Master of the World! Zushia is very hungry. Please prepare his meal for him.”

It wasn’t the first time, but the servants were sticking to their plan, standing around, waiting for the Rebbe Reb Zushia to ask directly. The visitor, however, heard the Rebbe Reb Zushia and walked right into the Rebbe’s room, placing the cake and drink on the table.

====

On the one hand… it’s a story with a very important moral about really trusting in Hashem alone.

On the other…

I went over to R’ Zushia’s Hebrew Wikipedia page, HERE, which is usually where you learn way more real details than the ‘airbrushed’ and sanitized English versions.

There, I learnt that R’ Zushia and the Noam Elimelech actually came from a very wealthy, landowning family.

They weren’t the ‘poor peasants’ I thought they were.

And I also learnt that R’ Zushia was married twice, because apparently his first wife divorced him.

Snippet:

Married twice. The name of his first wife is unknown and from whom he divorced and from whom he had his first son. From his second wife Henia he had another son and daughter.

====

And then I started trying to picture the R’ Zushia story, quoted above, in the realm of a real relationship, with a real wife.

Zushia is hungry!!

(Can’t Zushia fix himself an omelet, once a while? Does Zushia ever thank the person who actually prepared the food directly, or does he always address his thanks straight to the Creator? Does Zushia ever bring his wife a cup of tea, or a glass of water?)

You see what I mean, about this yawning chasm between ‘the ideal’ and ‘reality’?

And especially when you go with the teaching of Rav Berland and his student Rav Arush, that the ‘real you’ is the one that comes out at home, in your marriage, and how you treat your wife and children.

Sigh.

No wonder R’ Zushia got divorced.

====

There is another aspect to this story, that I’m still feeling out.

Whenever these descendants of the SHOR family show up, there are always multiple names, partial and misleading biographies, and false dates being used, to try and blur the links between the people that literally became all our rebbes and ‘gadols’ and the Sabbatean-Frankists.

For example, according to the Hebrew Wikipedia page, Reb Zushia’s grave was initially left unnamed…. It was only later on that the name ‘R Zushia’ actually appeared on his headstone.

Translated snippet:

At first it read: “This is where the Tzaddik was buried… God works in love and rejoices in the torment of many,”he said. The tombstone was later re-written with the inscription “Rabbi R. Zosha”.

Whenever gravestones get ‘overwritten’ like this, that always draws my attention.

====

This snapshot of the tombstone comes from R’ Zushia’s English Wikipedia page (full of miraculous stories of how his poor parents keep finding treasures in all sorts of strange ways…. of course.)

 

Once I realised that R’ Zushia’s first name was ‘Meshulam’, that reminded me of another famous ‘Meshulam’ who lived at the same time and who also descends from the same SHORs, and who also got divorced (actually more than once…)

That is R’ Meshulam Igra.

You can read more about him on the YIVO website, HERE.

====

He also descends from Ephraim Zalman SHOR.

Geni shows Meshulam Igra’s maternal great-grandma was meant to be YENTA SHOR.

====

YENTA SHOR is apparently the sister of (but could also be an alias for) MARGOLA SHOR, the mother of Jacob Frank.

This screenshot shows how Margola SHOR is the paternal great-grandma of Reb Zushia of Annipoli.

Again, bear in mind so much of this is distorted.

EG, Reb Zushia is meant to have been born in 1718, while his ‘great-uncle’ Jacob Frank was only born nine years later, in 1726. Clearly, those dates don’t add up.

====

Meshulam Igra was succeeded in the rabbinate of Pressburg by the Chatam Sofer.

The Chatam Sofer was the main disciple of R’ Pinchas of Horowitz, brother of Shmuel Shmelke of Nikolsburg.

There is a bunch of mighty strange stuff going around the family trees of these two brothers, R’ Pinchas and Shmuel Shmelke.

I’ve been trying to pin it down for months and months, but it seems to me that these brothers may have a number of ‘aliases’ within Jewish history, possibly even including R’ Zushia and the Noam Elimelech (!) And I have a hunch this is also connected to the GRA’s family tree, somehow.

I am still trying to disentangle the facts from the fiction, but in some ways there is a lot of overlap with the stories, and there is so much funny stuff going on with dates and relatives, that something dodgy is definitely going on.

====

Last thing:

R Zushia has a whole bunch of our modern-day rebbes and rabbis and admors descending from him, including Auerbachs and Twerskys.

Go HERE and poke around yourself.

====

It’s not black-and-white, not at all.

Sabbatean-Frankist families are ruling the roost all over the place, but the question is:

Who made teshuva, and who didn’t?

Because yichus is meaningless, and God wants our hearts and our yearnings to be holy, and our good deeds and our prayers to change.

But one thing I can tell you:

They have lied to us about everything to do with ‘real Jewish history’ over the last 400 years, and probably, way beyond that too.

And for us to move forward in a healthy way as a people, all these lies about ‘pretend perfect Tzaddikim’ with some big skeletons in their closets have to stop.

I’m still on holiday for another few days, but this caught my eye:

It’s a spoof video commercial for Yair Lapid, for the ‘haredi public’.

====

So, I was looking at this video of Lapid with peyot, and I realised he reminded me of someone else with peyot and pronounced eyebrows:

The Vizhnitzer Rebbe

====

If you go HERE, you’ll find the Vizhnitzer Rebbe having a rant about ‘anti vaxxers’ from February 2021, when the effort to coerce us all into taking ‘safe and effective’ Covid shots was in full swing.

Here’s a screenshot of the headline, followed by a snippet:

====

Snippet:

The Vizhnitzer Rebbe fiercely condemned anti-vaxxer leaders on Shabbos while saying Divrei Torah at the Shalosh Seudos tisch…

On Sunday, a special vaccination drive will be held in Kiryat Vihznitz for everyone who hasn’t yet been vaccinated.

Last week, the Rebbe instructed that all bochurim over age 16 should be vaccinated.

====

I’m sitting here seriously wondering if the Vizhnitzer Rebbe (and all the others, Pfizer excluded…) could be sued for coercing people to get these shots, now it’s really starting to come out all over the place just how much damage and death they are really causing.

That’s an interesting idea.

But in the meantime, the point for this post is that while we think the ‘Lapids’ and the ‘Vizhnitzer Rebbes’ are on different planets, they actually come from exactly the same families and are both busy destroying the Jews, just in different ways.

I know that’s a strong statement to make.

At this stage, that’s where I’m holding.

(More on why I’m holding there another time – I’m officially on holiday…)

====

Now that we have the staged two day ‘war’ out of the way here in Israel – timed to begin precisely on Tisha B’Av!

Because OF COURSE the State of Israel should begin it’s ‘wars’ on Tisha B’av….

We are shortly about to descend into full-on election fever again.

Except….

More and more of us are realising that whoever you vote for, you actually just get a Christian-Zionist-sponsored snake-in-the-grass piece of scum, who is NOT working for the Jewish people, no matter what outfit they wear externally, or what slogans they mouth.

The one exception to that rule, possibly, is the Arab parties.

Which again, is something interesting to think about.

====

Anyway, if you’re bored and missing the blog, here’s some stuff you can read that someone should maybe show the Vizhnitzer Rebbe, and others who pushed the Covid shots on their flock, so they can at least start the process of doing some real, heartfelt teshuva:

https://etana.substack.com/p/turbo-cancer

Snippet:

“Dr. Kruger stated that she sees vaccination as a trigger for fast-growing tumors and autoimmune diseases.

She’s seeing a lot of inflammation alongside tumors, and of course, it’s not only breast cancer. Many other pathologists have reported to Dr. Kruger that they’re seeing an elevation in cancers, cancers in multiple organs, and rare cancers.

She ended off by saying “I studied medicine because I wanted to help people. But now it feels like I’m watching people being killed and there’s nothing I can do”.”

====

I got to this from a Tweet – and whole account – that has already been deleted by Twitter, as part of the insane censorship going on around this subject of Covid vaccine injuries.

This Tweet kinda sums that up:

====

Maybe, we can also show this to the Vizhnitzer Rebbe, and the others who kept telling us that halachas says that WHEN A MAJORITY OF DRS LINE UP TO TELL YOU TO INJECT POISON INTO YOUR VEINS, YOU MUST OBEY THEM!!

====

Or maybe, show him this – (not shmirat eynayim friendly for Admorim, but probably OK for everyone else…)

It’s entitled:

BREAKING: U.S. life insurance companies have said that deaths have inexplicably increased by 40% in 18-49 year olds in 2021.

====

Sigh.

The birur continues, and it’s going to get even more stark.

Why?

Because the truth is now bubbling up to the surface, and people like the Vizhnitzer Rebbe are going to have to look their followers in the eye, and explain how they got this so, so wrong.

(I’m not even talking about the doctors who pushed it, the ‘scientists’ who pushed it, the teachers and others, who pushed it. I’m on holiday….)

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.

Hopefully, you had a day to let the first post ‘sink in’ a little, because there is a lot more information to share on this subject.

Part of the problem with all this research is the sheer amount of lies we’ve been told about EVERYTHING, which means that each knot you untie leads on to a million more ‘loose ends’ and ‘mysteries’ that are connected to the web of lies unravelling.

So, knowing how to parcel all this out, so you have enough information to follow what’s going on, and how I come to these conclusions, but without overwhelming you with data, is quite the challenge.

====

In this post, we’re going to continue the discussion that was started in the last one, HERE, which sets out the hypothesis that Shabtai Tzvi and the SHACH are actually the same person.

As always, use this as a starting point, and go and do your own research and investigation – and hitbodedut!!! Lots and lots of hitbodedut, or talking to God in your own words, to ask Him to show you what is really going on here. Because honestly, that’s the most important part of this ‘birur’ process, not all the information I’m putting together here.

And with that, let’s dive in to more strange details about the SHACH and Shabtai Tzvi.

====

On the OU website HERE, you’ll find a 9 part article called:

The Daughter of the Shach

Here’s a collation of the summaries from each section:

Rabbi Shabtai HaKohen, one of the most prominent of all our rabbis, lived in the Latvian town of Prinsk. Rabbi Hacohen is known by the name of his famous book, “Siftei Cohen” – lips of the Kohen – abbreviated as Shach. He was still young when he wrote the book, and it led to his having a reputation as a Torah genius. But he was not wealthy at all. His wife was ill, and after a period of pain and suffering, she passed away. Rabbi Shabtai was forced to take care of his six-year-old daughter Esther, who was also quite ill. His only consolation was in the study of Torah.

==

He was forced to flee from the Cossacks, and he had to leave his sick young daughter in the snow, thinking she was dead. The King of Poland found her and his physician made every possible effort to revive her. When the rabbi returned a while later he could not understand what had happened to his daughter’s “body.”

==

Esther was taken in by the King of Poland, whose physicians managed to save her life.

She was raised as a daughter of the king and as a companion for Princess Maria. In spite of great pressure, Esther insisted on maintaining her Jewish faith and on eating only kosher food.

One day, when she was playing with Maria, Esther suddenly jumped on Maria with a scream and dragged her off the bench where she sat – [rescuing her from being bitten by a poisonous snake].

==

 But she did not feel comfortable living in a Christian home. The people allowed her to eat kosher food, but they repeatedly tried to convince her to convert and become a Christian.

==

When a fire broke out in the palace, Esther took advantage of the great tumult and ran away. All the people came to the sad conclusion that she had perished in the fire.

At about the same time, her father [the SHACH] also despaired of finding her, until he heard a rumor about a young Jewish girl in the home of the King who maintained her faith. He decided to go there and check if this could possibly be his long lost daughter.

==

On his way to look for her, [the SHACH] was caught by bandits who threatened to kill him, but he discovered that the head of the gang was a childhood friend, the Polish man Vratislav. The chief told the rabbi how he had reached such a low point in life.

==

 The SHACH was released, but meanwhile the bandits captured Esther and suggested to their chief that he should marry her.

==

[The bandits] offered to release her [Esther] to the Jews for an enormous sum of money.

Rabbi Menachem, one of the leaders of the community of Vilna, redeemed her and adopted her as his daughter.

==

[Esther] eventually married Rabbi Menachem from Vilna.

Years later, the Prince of Poland decreed that the Jews must pay a huge sum of money. Esther went to visit Princess Maria, her good friend, and they had a very emotional reunion after many years of separation. The Prince witnessed their meeting and offered to give Esther a prize for having saved Maria’s life.

==

In the last part of the story, we are told this:

After a moment of thought, the Prince said:

Esther, my wife’s dear sister, I am willing to give you the fine of one thousand gold coins that I demanded from the Jewish community of Vilna. You can collect the money and do with it whatever you want.”…

Meanwhile, Rabbi Shabtai continued writing his important book “Siftai Kohen,” known by its abbreviation, SHACH. He wanted to print a second volume, but he did not have the necessary funds. He decided to take a trip in an effort to gather contributions in order to publish his book, and he arrived in Vilna.

Rabbi Menachem and his wife Esther were happy to have Rabbi Shabtai as a guest in their home. Of course, the rabbi did not recognize Esther, just as she did not recognize him…..

And then one of the people added, “To the life of our host [R’ Menachem Mann], the son-in-law of the King!”….

Just at that moment Esther came into the room. Rabbi Shabtai looked at her and he gave a great shout. “My own Esther! My dear daughter!” He took hold of Esther and hugged her warmly. “Father! Father!” Esther cried. “Who would believe that I would ever find you! And who would believe that my father is such a famous rabbi!” And Rabbi Shabtai replied, “I am not great. You are the great one! After you spent so many years in the palace and kept to your Jewish faith, nobody is greater than you!”…

Rabbi Menachem donated all the money needed to print Rabbi Shabtai’s book of commentary on the Shulchan Aruch, and the multitudes of Yisrael study this book to this very day. 

====

There is so much to unpack in this ‘story’.

For sure, it’s been embellished by the storyteller, but the basic ‘facts’ are these:

  • The SHACH loses his first wife at a young age.
  • He has a daughter with this wife called ‘Esther’, who somehow gets lost in a forest during the Chmielnicki riots.
  • This daughter is found by the King of Poland, and is quasi-adopted by him.
  • This daughter maintains her Jewishness in the King’s palace, despite being pressured to convert to xtianity.
  • She’s good friends with the King’s daughter, Princess Maria.
  • She escapes from the palace when it burns down.
  • She ends up being ‘adopted’ by R’ Menachem Mann of Vilna – and then ends up marrying him, when his own wife dies.
  • She is eventually reunited with the SHACH.
  • Her husband, R’ Menachem Mann of Vilna, pays to print the SHACH’s book, Siftey Cohen.

How much of this story – that we are basically teaching our children is ‘all true’ – stands up to scrutiny?

Let’s find out.

We’ll start with the easier stuff about who printed the SHACH’s works.

One of my readers sent me this yesterday, from HERE:

====

Here’s the relevant snippet:

Fundamental commentary and novella on the Shulchan Oruch Choshen Mishpat, by R. Shabse Katz (1621-1662), known as the SHaCH. Published by his son-in-law R. Menachem Manish…

In the introduction to the sefer R. Menachem Manish writes that before his passing, the SHaCH instructed him to publish this sefer, but the printing was postponed due to financial constraints, after which the SHaCH appeared to him in a dream, urging him to print the sefer without further delay.

Includes approbations by R. Heschel of Cracow; R. Yonah Thumim (Kikayon D’Yonah) and R. Sheftel Horowitz (son of the Shelah).

With a poem written by the author in the shape of a star on page 2b.

The year of publication (1663) is referred to on the title page as “Yemei Ha’Moshiach”, as it was printed in Amsterdam at the height of the influence of the tragic episode of the false Messiah, Shabtai Tzvi.

Following Shabtai Tzvi’s conversion to Islam in 1666 and the devastation which followed, many of these original title pages were destroyed.

====

So, we can see that R’ Menachem Manish was the SHACH’s son-in-law; and did print the SHACH on Choshen Mishpat for the first time in 1663 in Amsterdam – a year after the SHACH is supposed to have died.

And that the year of publication, 1663, is referred to as:

“Yemei Ha’Moshiach”, as it was printed in Amsterdam at the height of the influence of the tragic episode of the false Messiah, Shabtai Tzvi.

And that most of these original title pages were destroyed, after the apostasy of Shabtai Tzvi in 1666.

====

But now, we have a massive kooshia here (at least, for those people who aren’t agreeing with the hypothesis that SHACH = Shabtai Tzvi):

Gershom Scholem states that the SHACH died in 1664, (the Hebrew year 5424).

And my reader took the time to translate the SHACH’s tombstone to try to verify that statement:

כי שם

חלקת מחוקק ספון וטמון

צנצנת המן פדגוג ואומן
כל רז לא אנים ליה ולא כמון כמעשי
ידי אומן הרב הגאון המפורסם
מורינו ורבינו רבי שבתי בהגאון
מוהרר מאיר הכהן הגדול הנמשח
בשמן בעל שפתי כהן נזר הזמן
סליק למתיבתא דרקיע בחצי הזמן
יצאה נשמתו באחד דאדר ראשון
וביום החמישי בשני בו נקבר ונטמן
שנת היום בא משיח לגאול עם לא אלמן
והוא לחיי עולם הבא מזומן

ומיתת צדיקים לכפרה ולט

====
ENGLISH TRANSLATION:
This carved and sealed stone [this is an expression from Tanach, in a sense of praise)
A jar of mann, pedagog, artisan.
No secret was hidden from him and it was readily known to him like the workings in the hands of the artisan.
Moreinu and Rabeinu HaRav HaGaon Shabtai Cohen the son of the Gaon Meir HaCohen HaGadol who is anointed with oil
The writer of Siftei Cohen crown of time
He went of up to the yeshivah of shamayim in half the time
His soul left on the 1st of Adar Harishon [so in a year with 2 Adarim?]  and on the yom hamishi on the second [does it mean the second of Adar or that he was buried the day after he died???] he was buried
and sealed here the year the day moshiach comes to redeem if not alman?
and he lives and is invited  to olam haba
and the death of tzaddikim is capara [and the last word I can’t see properly].

====s

There is no specific date on this very strange tombstone, but Scholem says that phrase:

 שנת היום בא משיח לגאול

alludes to what that year is, i.e. 5424 – 1664.

 ====

As mentioned in the last post, that tombstone is brand new, and is kind of ‘stuck’ on an old grave in Holleschau.

Also weird is why the specific names are ‘whited out’ – the whole point is that this is the tomb of the SHACH, so why make those details, dafka, so hard to read?

It gives no specific date of death for the SHACH, but the date it’s meant to be alluding to is one year AFTER the SHACH’s son-in-law printed his Siftey Cohen in 1663, apparently posthumously, because the SHACH is meant to have died in 1662.

And that allusion to the person buried in the grave being “A jar of mann” also strikes me as strange.

You write something like that – a pun on a name – for someone named….Menachem Mann, for example.

But how is this ‘jar of mann’ meant to be connected, in any way, to the SHACH?

====

We are going to park ‘Menachem Manish’ for now – but we will return to him probably in another post, as the Baal Shem Tov’s second wife Chana descends from him, and his wife ‘Esther Hatzaddika’ – the daughter of the SHACH we’re taking a closer look at here.

And I just tripped over a bunch more strange links in Vilna, connected to him and his family, that will require some time to process.

====

Let’s move on, as this is only the beginning of the high weirdness in this post.

Next, let’s try to figure out who the mother of ‘Esther Hatzaddika’, daughter of the SHACH, actually is.

On the My Heritage genealogy website HERE, we find this entry for the wife of the SHACH, Yenta Leah Meisels:

====

So now, the plot thickens!

You remember in the last post, I brought 4 accounts of Shabtai Tzvi’s third wife ‘Sarah’, who is meant to have also being ‘orphaned’ in the Chmielniki massacres, then raised as a xtian in the home of a Polish noble, before becoming a tart and then marrying Shabtai Tzvi?

I.e., a very similar tale to that being told about the SHACH’s daughter, ‘Esther HaTzaddika’?

According to this, the SHACH’s wife is called Yenta Leah Meisels, (and /or Ashkenazi), and her mother is meant to be one ‘Sarah’, the daughter of the MaHaRSHa, Shmuel Eidels (1555-1631).

That family tree is also a huge mess, with tons of misinformation and ‘discussions’ going on – specifically around this mysterious ‘Sarah’, who seems to have at least two different identities, and at least two different husbands.

We will park this information too, for now, but it’s VERY pertinent to how some very prominent families in the Torah world are directly linked to Sabbatean-Frankist families – and how they covered it up.

(The MaHaRSHa’s grandson is the Megaleh Amukot, Natan Neta Shapira).

====

So, back to the miraculous tale of ‘Esther HaTzaddika’.

In one of the many discussions at the bottom of the SHACH’s geni profile HERE, one of the contributors tried to research this story further, to see if there was any possibility it could be true.

According to these commentators, the grave of the SHACH in Moravia is shaped like a book, and what’s written on the outside of it is… the story of Esther HaTzaddika.

In Hebrew.

A whole big discussion then takes place on geni, with one commentator saying that the story – even though it’s written on what is meant to be the SHACH’s grave (!) is false, and / or it took place with the SHACH’s son, instead, R’ Moshe of Podhajce.

Here’s a snippet:

My chavrusa is a direct descendant of The Shach…Adopted Princess is true.

It is also standard curriculum, as I understand it in the Bais Yaakov schools.

(Emphasis mine.)

So then one contributor girds his loins to investigate further, and this is what he discovers.

====

====

This is remarkable.

If ‘Esther daughter of the SHACH’ was really taken in by Polish nobility during the Chmielnicki uprisings, that suggests that there had to be some sort of blood tie between the family of the SHACH, and the apparently gentile Radziwill family, who were ruling Poland at this time.

Because Polish nobles don’t just take in half-dead, anonymous ‘strays’ they find in forests, regardless of what Bais Yaakov and Walt Disney says.

====

Where all this is leading us is deep, deep down the rabbit hole of just how ‘Jewish’ most of our leading rabbinic families really are.

And just how ‘Jewish’ so many European royal families really are.

Alt-historians like Miles Mathis (who generally has a very good, fact-based methodology, but who seems to be drawing some wrong conclusions) says that most of the European royal families got ‘invaded’ by crypto Jews.

You can understand why he got that impression.

I’m of the view, at this stage, that the Jewish people got ‘invaded’ by Sadduccee-Karaite-Gnostic-Manichean-Sabians – or whatever their latest ‘incarnation’ actually is.

And that the Swiss Knights Templars, amongst others, are bang in the middle of this whole, hot mess.

But the bottom line is this:

Many of our leading ‘rabbinical royalty’ families have some very deep, very strange links with xtianity, and with royal families, that have gone on for centuries.

====

I have touched on this topic before here, a couple of times already.

Go back and read these:

Crypto Jews and Royal Families

There, you’ll find an excerpt from the Rebbe Rayatz of Chabad’s personal memoirs, which you can read for yourself HERE, (p169) talking about some weird account about a ‘Nachum’, who is an agent for some (made-up name) Polish Count, who is discussing selling some of his boss’s estates to a Swedish royal called ‘Prince Johann Cambari’.

According to the Rebbe Rayatz that ‘Prince Johann Cambari’ is really a secret Jew, who wants to return to the Jewish faith.

Here’s a snippet:

I tried to track down this Swedish ‘Prince Johann’ from the 16th century, and very quickly, I got to this guy:

John III of Sweden, who was married to Catherine Jagellion.

Alternative historian Miles Mathis has had the Jagellions fingered as ‘crypto-Jews’ who took over a whole bunch of European royal families in a bunch of his research papers.

====

Alexander Sender Shor, and Prince William

Snippet:

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.

====

I  have so much information to sort through at this stage, before I can synthesise it for you in a way that’s hopefully easy enough to digest.

But for now, suffice to say that all these ‘stories’ that we’ve been told about Jewish ‘rabbinic royalty’ in Europe do contain a nugget of truth, mixed in with all the lies.

Including this one:

====

Snippet:

When King Stephen Bathory of Poland died in August of 1586, a schism immediately arose concerning which branch of the Polish royal family was the true successor to the throne.

Polish law mandated that the throne could not remain vacant for even a short period of time and required that, in the event of a feud, a rex pro tempore – temporary king – be elected.

Nicholas Radziwill was by that time a very powerful force in the government and recommended that the impartial and very reputable Saul Wahl be crowned king. Saul was quickly approved and became “King of Poland for a day”!

====

You can read about ‘Nicholas Cherny RadziwillHERE.

His family castle was the Dubingai castle that burned down in the time of ‘Esther HaTzaddika’.

On geni, we see that ‘Shaul Wahl King of Poland for a day’ is related to ALL the ‘interesting’ families I keep writing about here.

Like the SHOR family, mentioned above:

====

And, like the Sabbatean ‘Meir Eisenstadt’, the Meir Panim himself (bottom arrow), via his mother ‘Esther Ashkenazi’, who may or may not be the same as the ‘Esther HaTzaddika’ daughter of the SHACH:

====

And many others, too:

Snippet from HERE:

Rabbi Meir [Katzenellenbogen, the grandfather of Saul ‘King for a day’] had a descendant, Isaac who married Abraham Luria whose descendants were Jehiel Luria, and then Solomon Luria who was the well-known Maharashal born in 1510 and died in 1573.     

Notable descendants of this family include Rabbi Menakhem Nakhum Twersky of Chernobyl, Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, Lord Immanuel Jakobovitz who was the Chief Rabbi of the British Empire, Martin Buber, Karl Marx, Moses and Felix Mendelsshon, Baron Guy de Rothschild and Helena Rubenstein plus many others.  

====

Also, be aware that this story of the ‘King of Poland for one day’ was deliberately made up by one of my husband’s ancestors, R. Zvi Hirsch Edelman (Chen Tov), who was a scholar working at the Bodleian Library in Oxford, in the pay of the Rothschilds.

(He went mad and died in an insane asylum… See? I also have some yichus….)

Why would someone make something like this up?!?!?

We all want to know.

More and more, I think we’re finally on the cusp of figuring that out.

I  have been musing on writing this post for well over a year.

And each time…. I ducked it.

Let someone else open that big can of worms…

But the last few days, I have come to the conclusion I can’t really ‘duck’ these issues anymore, however disturbing we might all find the information.

First, let’s be clear that I am not making any definitive statements in this post. With all the ‘disinformation’, cover-ups and deliberate lies that have gone on to obscure Shabtai Tzvi’s true identity and real connections, the most I can tell you is that this is a working hypothesis, that seems to have an awful lot of circumstantial information that supports it.

If you don’t buy the hypothesis, that’s ok and totally your prerogative.

God gave each of us a brain, and He is thrilled when we think for ourselves.

====

That said, my soul is becoming very wearied with certain commentators here who just mock me, personally, and seem incapable of discussing information without trying to always prove that everything I’ve written is BS.

As noted above, this is a working hypothesis, not a statement of fact.

There are a number of giant ‘holes’ in the stories of both the SHACH and Shabtai Tzvi, and until and unless more factual information comes to light, all anyone can do is ‘stretch’ the information they do have, over them.

So, feel free to have your own opinion, and even to express that here on the blog – but do it respectfully, and perhaps with at least a modicum of humility that you also don’t know everything.

Ergo – there’s at least a possibility that this hypothesis is more ‘correct’ than the current history we’re all being fed, that contains some ginormous, demonstrable, lies.

And with that, let’s begin.

====

First, here is my hypothesis, laid out bare bones:

False messiah Shabtai Tzvi and halachic codifier Shabtai HaKohen Katz are actually one and the same person.

How did I come to this conclusion?

Read on.

====

FIRST, SOME OF THE ‘HOLES’ IN THE STORY OF SHABTAI TZVI:

The false messiah ‘Shabtai Tzvi’ was not born and raised in Smyrna (now Izmir) in Turkey.

The earliest reports of him being in Smyrna are from 1650 onwards – and even then, he was only there for a short period of time before he was ‘banished’ for his strange behavior in shul.

Also, in Gershom Scholem’s book ‘Sabbatai Sevi: The Mystical Messiah, 1626-1676‘, he brings evidence that Shabtai Tzvi could not speak either Turkish, or Arabic, and had to have his brother translate for him, when he was dealing with the Turkish rulers.

This makes no sense, if he really was born and bred in Smyrna (present day Izmir, in Turkey).

Excerpt from pages 106-107 of Scholem’s book:

The name Sevi [Tsvi] is unknown among Sephardim, either as a personal or family name, and is likely that both the name and the family are of Ashkenazi origin. Emanuel Frances [a contemporary anti-Sabbatean] tells us that Sabbatai ‘belonged to an Ashkenazi family that came to live there’….

In the account of envoys from Poland who visited Sabbatai in  1666 [this was the TAZ’s son and son-in-law], we are told that he [Shabtai Tzvi] rebuked of them in German (or Yiddish)…..

[W]e know that before 1666 [Shabtai Tzvi] had no command of Turkish…

Long story short, there is no evidence that places ‘Shabtai Tzvi’ in Smyrna, before 1650, when according to the dates accorded to him, he would already be 24 years old.

==

In terms of his family, his father ‘Mordechai Sevi’ apparently dies – conveniently! – in 1663, at the same time as Shabtai’s uncle, Isaac Sevi.

This information about his immediate family only showed up, again conveniently, in 1935, and also conveniently, by that time the tombstones of his relatives were claimed to have all been destroyed in World War I.

He has two brothers, Elias and Joseph, who are meant to be traders in Smyrna with connections as commercial agents for the British and Dutch, and maybe, he had a sister too.

No-one knows anything about his mother, or her family.

====

While ‘Shabtai Tzvi’ was apparently married at least three times before he converted to Islam in 1666, nothing is known of his previous two wives, who he apparently divorced shortly after marrying them.

Then he married a third wife, ‘Sarah’, in 1664, who also has a very strange story, based on the fact that she was orphaned in the Chmielnicki massacres of 1648 onwards, in and around Poland and Lithuania. The following is taken from p 194-5 of Scholem’s book:

“The four accounts which we possess all agree that Sarah grew up as a Christian. In spite of the many fantastic details, the accounts show certain similarities and points of contact….

[1] In Ragstatt’s version, the orphaned girl was adopted by a Polish nobleman.

When she had reached womanhood, her father’s spirit appeared to her, told her that she was Jewish, and commanded her to return to her ancestral religion. Her [Polish] stepfather died, and the family wanted her to marry, but she was miraculously transported through the air to Persia, where her father had fled the Chmielnicki massacres…then to ‘Asia’.”

[The angel that’s transporting her around then tells her she is going to marry ‘the messiah’. Ragstatt was a Jew who converted to xtianity after the debacle of Shabtai Tzvi.]

==

[2] Leyb b. Ozer had heard from ‘reliable reporters and rabbis, and also from my late father,’ who had seen and known the girl and heard her own story, that from the age of six she lived in a Polish nunnery.

When she was 16, her dead father (who had been a rabbi in a Polish community)…commanded her to wander from one city to another until she found the messiah, who would marry her. She was finally sent to Amsterdam, whither her brother Samuel had fled from Poland.

==

[3] Baruch of Arezzo [a Sabbatean believer] recounts….she had been forcibly baptised and was thereafter brought up by a Polish noblewoman who wanted to marry her to her son.

On the day before the wedding, her father, who had died two years earlier, appeared to her and gave her a ‘garment of skin’ inscribed ‘She will be the messiah’s wife’.

[She ended up in Leghorn for a few years, and then went to Egypt, where she married Shabtai Tzvi in 1664.]

==

[4] [In] De La Croix’s account [a French xtian writer]…Sarah was forcibly abducted from the house of her stepfather (who was a famous rabbi) and brought to a Polish nobleman who wanted to convert her….

==

Scholem also states:

All sources record rumours about her licentious life.

====

(You’ll see in a minute why I’m bringing these sources in so much detail.)

====

Shabtai Tzvi himself seems obviously ‘psychotic’.

By turns, he’s ‘illuminated’ and not needing sleep or food, and singing psalms 24/7 while also engaging in his bizarre behaviour that goes against the Torah; alternating with ‘depressed’ periods where he secludes himself and regrets his bizarre actions while ‘illuminated’; and then ‘normal’ periods where he behaves mamash like a pious ascetic, fasting, learning Torah and regularly scourging himself and practising kabbalistic mortifications of the body.

The first concrete reports of this mad behavior are dated to 1650 – and even then, are only given over many, many years later, by a Sabbatian believer and ‘first friend’ of Shabtai Tzvi named Moses Pinheiro.

So for the first 24 years of his life… there are no records of him doing or saying anything crazy.

====

Shabtai Tzvi is obsessed with another false messiah, aka Jesus.

And also seems to have deep knowledge of ‘xtian’ doctrines pertaining to faith and redemption.

Again, quite a strange thing for a ‘mad Jewish man’ from Turkish Smyrna…

====

He’s obsessed with avenging the Chmielnicki massacres that happened in and around Poland, from 1648 on.

To the point of even making statements that the only xtian blood that is going to flow ‘once the messiah is openly revealed’ is in Poland and Germany.

He also apparently knows how to speak Polish, German and Yiddish.

But NOT Turkish and Arabic…

====

There are many, many more ‘holes’ in the official story told about Shabtai Tzvi, but let’s stop there, for now.

And turn our attention, instead, to the official ‘story’ told about Shabtai Hakohen Katz, author of many works including the Siftey Cohen, from whence he gets his nickname, the SHACH.

==

You can find the SHACH’s Wikipedia page in English HERE.

Here’s the standard story, told about Shabtai HaKohen Katz:

Shabbatai HaKohen was born either in Amstibovo or in Vilna, Lithuania in 1621 and died at Holleschau, Moravia on the 1st of Adar, 1662.

He first studied with his father and in 1633 he entered the yeshivah of Rabbi Joshua Höschel ben Joseph at Tykotzin, moving later to Cracow and Lublin, where he studied under Naphtali Cohen.

Returning to Vilna, he married the daughter of the wealthy Shimon Wolf, a great-grandson of Moses Isserles, and shortly after was appointed to the Beit Din as one of the assistants of Moses ben Isaac Judah Lima, author of Chelkat Mechokek.

In 1655, during fighting between Polish forces and the invading Swedish army in the Northern War, Shabbatai HaKohen fled Vilna with the entire Jewish community.

After a short stay at Lublin he went to Prague and later to Strážnice in Moravia, from where he was called to the rabbinate of Holešov, where he remained until his death in 1662.

While in Holešov, he gained the friendship of Magister Valentino Wiedreich of Leipzig [a christian]. The Shakh′s grave in the Jewish cemetery of Holešov still exists and is visited by people from all over the world.

====

I went looking for who this ‘Valentino Wiedreich’ was, and I got to an archived copy of the Jewish Encyclopaedia, HERE, that said this:

During the period he was rabbi in Holesov he became friendly with a Christian scholar. In the library of the academy in Leipzig there is a holograph of a Hebrew letter dated Feb. 3, 1660, which Shabbetai wrote “to him whom I love as myself, the philosopher magister Valentino Wiedreich.”

Shabbetai informs him that he has sent him the book of Elijah Bahur and asks him to keep in touch with him (Bikkurei ha-Ittiniy 10 (1829), 43-44)

====

Doesn’t it strike you as strange, that someone like the SHACH is described as being bosom buddies with a xtian philosopher?

====

Here’s some more basic details, then we’ll start to dig down, into some of the reasons why I believe Shabtai Tzvi and the SHACH are actually the same person.

  • His magnum opus, Siftey HaCohen, is published in Cracow in 1646.
  • He witnesses the Chmielnicki massacres beginning 1648 first-hand, and even writes an historical account about them in a work called the ‘Flying Scroll’.
  • He is an exact contemporary of ‘Shabtai Tzvi’, but apparently dies sometime between 1662-1664 – the year before ‘Shabtai Tzvi’ takes centre stage as the false messiah.
  • He has a reputation for overturning other people’s legal decisions and ‘walking his own path’, this from Wikipedia:

Shabbatai HaKohen was regarded by his contemporaries as more than usually learned.

He frequently contested the decisions of his predecessors, and followed an entirely new path in the interpretation of the Talmudic law. He made light, too, of the decisions of his contemporaries, and thus drew on himself the enmity of some among them, including David ben Shmuel HaLevi, author of Ture Zahav, and Aaron Shmuel Kaidanover, author of Birkhat HaZevach….

====

So now, let me explain how I even got started on this hypothesis, that Shabtai Tzvi and the SHACH are alter egos.

When I was trying to figure out who Jacob Frank really was, I spent literally days and weeks and months poring over family trees on Geni, and elsewhere, trying to piece together the family relationships of leading Sabbatean-Frankist families, including the Rothschilds, Montefiores, Shors, and Eybshutzs, amongst many others.

Very quickly in that process, I could see that there was a massive cover-up around Jacob Frank’s genealogy, and that while ‘official history’ was trying to make him out as a nobody from Salonika, he was actually a close relative of ‘Jewish royalty’, yichus-wise.

While I’ve made a lot of progress starting to sort his family tree out, I am still going through that process of birur today. But one thing I learnt to spot was the inexplicable inconsistencies in some of the family trees on Geni that always suggest ‘massive cover up happening here’.

And one of those family trees belonged to the SHACH, Shabtai Kohen.

====

At this stage, over a year ago, I simply couldn’t understand why anyone would be going to such lengths to confuse everything around the SHACH’s family tree – in all directions – so thoroughly, when he lived a full 80 years before Jacob Frank really began his career as the Frankist false messiah.

One day, I was looking at this portrait (below) of the SHACH, when I suddenly heard that inner voice whispering at me:

You are looking at the real Shabtai Tzvi.

This is not something that can be logically explained at all, but it’s happened on many, many occasions that I get these flashes of intuition, that seem totally ‘out there’, and then when I start researching them to see if they are actually credible, they nearly always pan out.

====

So, when I first heard that little voice whispering at me – I shut my computer, took all my research and ‘family trees’ upstairs, and dumped them in a box for the next three months.

Because at that point, I didn’t even want to start down that path of checking whether ‘Shabtai Tzvi’ and the SHACH could be the same person.

For obvious reasons.

Over the next few months, I had so many arguments, both internally, and also with my husband about what to do about all this; I had so much new information coming out, about Jacob Frank, about the Sabbateans, and about the contours of a wider problem, that suggested the Jewish community had been corrupted from within, for millenia.

====

Much of it I put up here on the site, but everytime ‘Shabtai Tzvi = SHACH’ stuff started to coalesce again, I’d stop the research.

Because I didn’t want to challenge anyone’s faith in our true Tzaddikim unnecessarily, or stir things up any more than I had to.

====

Long story short, I came to the conclusion this week that I’m not going to have any ‘inner peace’ until I finally get this hypothesis ‘out there’.

I could write reams more about the struggle I’ve had with all this, behind the scenes, but you hopefully get the idea, and in the meantime, let’s move on with the information.

====

The more I was looking at the SHACH’s convoluted family tree, HERE, the more I realised how so many of the leading Sabbatians in Poland and Hungary, who then gave rise to the leading Frankists etc, were directly related to the SHACH.

That includes the Meir Panim, Meir Eisenstadt, (teacher of Jonathan Eybshutz) and his ‘Sabbatean-prophet’ brother Mordechai Mokiach, amongst many others.

That didn’t really make a lot of sense, if ‘Shabtai Tzvi’ was a native of Smyrna, and lived and died with his hard-core followers in Turkey.

BUT, it made way more sense, if the SHACH = Shabtai Tzvi.

====

Next, I kept tripping over descendants and relatives of the SHACH with the strange surname ‘Mi Geza Tzvi’ – which translates as ‘from the root of Tzvi’.

This was often shortened to ‘Mi Geza’, so initially I was translating it as ‘from Gaza’ – which was a weird enough surname in itself, for a guy who apparently lived his whole life in and around what is now Poland – until one day, I tripped across the full version of Mi Geza Tzvi.

From the root of Tzvi.

Why would the SHACH’s descendants be called ‘from the root of Tzvi’?

And then, why would the path between these descendants and the SHACH himself be so convoluted?

====

Here’s one example, “Admor Zeev Wolf Koch, Of Tcherni Austraha, Of Geza Tzvi.

Here’s a screenshot, of how he’s just kind of ‘hanging’ there, with no parents, and with some very interesting descendants that include the former ABD of Safed, R’ Avraham Heller – whose descendants are still playing a very big role in the State of Israel, even in our days.

(BTW, that ‘R’ Mordechai Wolf Zeev of Karlin’ is the nephew of R’ Levi Yitzhak of Berdichev’s wife, who is also bang in the middle of all the ‘interesting’ family trees I’ve been researching…. It’s a very small world.)

 

 

 

====

Here’s another example, ‘Aharon Moshe Mi-Geza Tzvi of Brod’, founder of the first chassidic community in Jerusalem (apparently…), screenshot from Kestenbaum, HERE.

This bio comes from HERE:

“Rabbi Aharon Moshe MiGeza Tzvi [1775-1858] was amongst the great Chassidic personalities, and a disciple of the Chozeh of Lublin and the Saraf of Strelisk.

He studied Torah and kabbalah in Brod and then in 1839 immigrated to Israel. He is considered to be the founder of the Chassidic community in Jerusalem and headed the Kollel Chassidim in Jerusalem. He mourned for the destruction of Jerusalem throughout his life and passed away in 1845. His famous will was published in Chernowitz in 1858.”

If you go back to the GENI (distorted…) family tree HERE, you’ll find many ‘Mi-Geza Tzvis’ descending directly from the SHACH.

I’ve screenshotted some of them, below – and let me point out at this stage that’s it’s a common trick that the disinformers pull, to kind of ‘switch yichus’ between the husband and the wife, to throw people off the scent of what is really going on, so don’t be fooled by the fact that the ‘Mi Geza Tzvi’ tag is being stuck on the SHACH’s son-in-law, instead of his daughter.

There may be another theory that explains this satisfactorily – and if there is, I’m happy to hear it – but at this stage, it started to seem more and more likely that ‘Shabtai Tzvi = SHACH’.

====

The next clues came from the Hebrew Wikipedia page for the SHACH, HERE.

Here’s a Google translated snippet:

During the war between the Polish-Lithuanian Union and Russia, he was exiled from Vilnius [Vilna] when it was occupied by the Russians in 1655 and wandered from place to place, until he arrived in the Austrian City of Halichoi (in present-day Czech Republic), where he was accepted as a rabbi, but died a short time later.

Legend has it that he lost his daughter Hilda in the forest when he fled his home in 1655, the year the Russians occupied Vilnius, and a local king or minister found her, and raised her as a princess, she maintained her Jewish ancestry, and found her father who identified her as his daughter.

====

I learnt a number of important things from the Hebrew Wikipedia page:

  1. The SHACH apparently wandered around a great deal, incommunicado, before apparently getting to Hollichau and apparently dying there either in 1662 or 1663.

2. There is a lot of confusion about the year he is meant to have died, which is strange because his grave in Hollechau – with a brand new tombstone – should be able to clear that fact up instantly (see screenshot to the left – and I’ll put a close up of this at the bottom of the post, if someone out there can help me decipher it).

3. There is a very weird ‘legend’ about the SHACH losing a daughter named Hilda, who is raised by a xtian as a princess, before being ‘reunited’ with the SHACH.

====

Last things first: does that strange ‘legend’ about the SHACH’s daughter remind you of another strange ‘legend’, brought above, this time about Shabtai Tzvi’s third wife, Sarah?

(In case you are wondering, I haven’t been able to track down any daughter of the SHACH named ‘Hilda’, in all my searching.)

For Hebrew readers out there, there is another long discussion of this SHACH legend on the Toladot blogspot HERE, where the SHACH’s long-lost daughter is replaced with his sister, Esther Ashkenazi.

(Or maybe, it’s the sister of the SHACH’s wife….)

But either way, this ‘holy virgin’ reclaimed from the non-Jew’s house ends up being the mother of grandmother of the secret Sabbatean the ‘Meir Panim’, Meir Eisenstadt, and his brother, the not-so-secret Sabbatean prophet, Mordechai Mokiach as brought above.

This ‘legend’ about the SHACH just smacks of the same Sabbatean-Frankist lies that now jump out at me from a mile off.

But why would anyone make up such a weird story about the SHACH being reunited with his long-lost sister like this?

(If you disagree with my premise that ‘Shabtai Tzvi = SHACH’, so there had to be a whole lot of shuffling genealogies around to protect all the rabbis directly related to him, whose descendants with Sabbatean tendencies have been running the show in the ‘orthodox’ Jewish community for a very long time. And still are.)

====

If you go to Esther Ashkenazi’s family tree HERE, you’ll see that all connection with the SHACH seems to be carefully scrubbed off her profile, despite all the evidence linking her directly to the SHACH, one way or another.

Why is that?

(Here’s a clue: see all the illustrious rabbis that she’s ‘officially’ connected to, both up and down the line, and then start to understand why such a magnificent cover-up of who Shabtai Tzvi really was had to happen, after it all went so spectacularly sour.)

====

The next clues came from Gershom Scholem’s book, Sabbetai Sevi: The Mystical Messiah, 1626-1756.

I still have 200 pages to go, and this ‘hypothesis’ is still a work in progress, but here’s a few of the things that I took from that book (so far, with lots more still to come.)

  1. A physical description of ‘Shabtai Tzvi’ as being physically tall and imposing, having a ‘swarthy appearance‘ and black, rounded bead, – together with the only contemporary, accurate sketch of him (on the left.):

2. Shabtai Tzvi is described as only starting his ‘manic-depressive’ stage in 1650 – i.e. two years into the Chmielnicki massacres in and around Poland and modern-day Lithuania.

This date is very meaningful, as we’ll see below.

3. He is expelled from Smryna by the Jewish community sometime between 1651-1654.

And then spends the next few years wandering around in obscurity, before popping back up in Jerusalem and Egypt, and couple of years before he began his career as a ‘false messiah’ in earnest.

4. Something very profound happens to ‘Shabtai Tzvi’ in 1648 – the date the Chmielnicki massacres begin, in and around Poland.

This excerpt comes from p 136 of Scholem’s book:

“When he [Sabbatai Sevi] passed through Aleppo, he told us… how in the year 1648 the Spirit of God descended upon him one night while he was walking at about two hours distance from the city in solitary meditation, until he heard the voice of God speaking to him, ‘Thou art the savior of Israel, the messiah, the son of David, the anointed of the God of Jacov, and thou art destined to redeem Israel, to gather it from the four corners of the earth to Jerusalem….’

From that moment on, he was clothed with the Holy Spirit and with a great illumination; he pronounced the [ineffable] name of God and performed all sorts of strange actions as seemed fit to him by reason of the mystical tiqqun intended by them. Those who saw him did not understand his actions, and in their eyes he was like a fool.”

====

Before I bring the last bit of stunning info, for this post at least, I just want to bring you the strange statement that Scholem makes about the gravestone of the SHACH, in his book on Shabtai Tzvi.

Excerpt from page 559:

[N]one of the numerous known inscriptions on tombstones from the years 1666 in the cemeteries of Frankfurt, Vienna, Hamburg and Prague make any reference to the advent of redemption, though earlier tombstones speak eloquently of messianic expectations.

Here, Scholem brings just one example – the tombstone of the SHACH, where he says this:

In 1664, the rabbi of Holleschau in Moravia, the renowned Talmudic scholar R. Sabbatai Kohen… died, and his epitaph gives the date of his demise as ‘the year MESSIAH SON OF DAVID’ (numerical value in Hebrew, 424′.)

Apart from the strange CO-INC-ID-ENCE, also notice that each time there is talk of the SHACH’s death, no-one can keep the year straight.

====

And so, to the last bit of information that turned up just yesterday, and that I find totally stunning, to be honest.

It comes from the Otzar Forum, in Hebrew, HERE, where I found a discussion of the following story, involving the SHACH, messianic expectations for 1648, and the same sort of ‘deal’ that I first heard about in connection with R’ Eliezer Berland, R’ Dov Kook, and the murdered Baba Elazar, back in 2016.

(If you have no idea what I’m talking about, go and read THIS first, entitled: The Deal: How three of our biggest Tzaddikim took it upon themselves to save Am Yisrael from the harshest Divine judgments.)

====

Here it is in Hebrew, than meet me below for a free translation into English:

====

====

ENGLISH TRANSLATION:

And I heard in the name of our teacher, the Gaon and Rabbi Isser Zalmen Meltzer, ztzl, that there is a continuation to the subject under discussion.

And that this is that after his conversations with the Sitra Achra, that was undertaken by the great kabbalist Rabbi Shimshon, ztzl, he asked a ‘dream question’ [i.e. a question to be answered via a dream from Heaven] that would reveal to him from shemayim what he should do, in order to rescue his people from the awful gezirut of 1648-9.

And so, he recieved an answer to his ‘dream question’, and was responded to thus:

“That if two of the Gedolei HaDor would agree to sacrifice themselves, and to return their souls to HaKadosh Baruch Hu before their time [in the aspect of ‘the death of tzaddikim atones’ – Tractate Yoma 42a; and see ‘Gur Aryeh’, Vayikra 17a, ‘After the death of the two sons of Aharon’….] it would cancel the gezirah.”

==

R’ Shimshon said to himself then, that he was prepared [to sacrifice himself – i.e. that he knew himself to be one of the Gedolei HaDor], and he approached the SHACH, [the second Gadol HaDor, of that time period], and asked him to be prepared to sacrifice his soul, and to pass away from the world before his time, in order to sweeten the gezirah.

And the SHACH responded to Rabbi Shimshon that he needed to think about the matter, and promised him an answer within two days.

When two days had passed, the SHACH said to R’ Shimshon, ztzl, that he was prepared to partner with him in this matter – but on condition that he would be given another three months of time.

And when R’ Shimshon asked the SHACH about the meaning of this – because each day, there was an increased quadruple curse [upon the nation?], of killings and murders and persecutions and waves [of violence] – (i.e. the decrees of 1648-9 were the most violent that the sons of his people ever suffered) – and why should we wait such a long time, in such a situation, when each day there were murdering hundreds more of our brethren, God should have mercy?!

The SHACH answered R’ Shimshon, and these were his words:

“I need another three months in order to finish writing my commentary, the Siftey Cohen – [the SHACH’s commentary on the Shulchan Aruch.]”

==

When three months had passed, the SHACH completed his commentary on the Shulchan Aruch, and R’Shimshon and the SHACH passed away from the world, and the decrees of 1648-9 were cancelled.

And the gaon and rabbi Isser Zalman Meltzer, ztl, asked how can we understand the behavior of the SHACH, that he gave evil another three months to murder and persecute…. and everything just in order for him to add to his writings a few more chiddushims and clarifications? This is a ‘SHACH’ that is very hard to understand!

The author of the ‘Even HaEzel’ (i.e. Isser Zalman Meltzer) continued with awesome words…..[that the SHACH reckoned that] the chances of Am Yisrael to come through the decrees of 1648-9 [were small], but without the [merit of the] commentary of the SHACH on the Shulchan Aruch, the decrees of 1648-9 would have been many times worse, than they were with the commentary of the SHACH.

====

There is a lot of discussion about this story, including a PDF of the source document for the story, on the Otzar forum HERE.

The ‘R’Shimshon’ in the story is Rabbi Shimshon of Ostropoli, who did die a martyr’s death in 1648.

For the purposes of this post, here’s a couple of things to point out:

  • The story can’t have happened as described, as the SHACH completed his commentary in 1646, and according to conventional history, he only passed away sometime between 1662-1664.
  • Isser Zalman Meltzer (1870-1953) was a big ‘religious zionist’; and his original surname was ‘Eisenstadt’, which suggests he could belong the SHACH’s wider family, descended from the SHACH’s sister via the known sabbateans Meir Eisenstadt and Mordechai ‘Mokiach’ Eisenstadt.
  • I.e. – this is a ‘family history’, intended to justify the SHACH’s lack of mesirut nefesh for Am Israel.

 ====

Back on the Otzar forum, we discover there are different versions of this story, including this one:

(Hebrew screenshot, followed by a free translation into English):

And by the way, it is accepted that before the riots of 1648-9, three tzaddikim  received a message from Heaven that if they would agree to pass away al Kiddush Hashem, then they would atone for the children of Israel.

And each of the tzaddikim would atone for a third of the nation of Israel.

And these were the three elders:

  • Rabbi Shimshon of Ostropoli,
  • Rabbi Natan of Nemirov, and
  • The SHACH – [Shabtai HaKohen]

Rabbi Shimshon and Rabbi Nathan accepted this upon themselves, and they were killed al kiddush Hashem.

And the Shach argued that he still needed to compose his essays, and indeed a third of all Israel were murdered al Kiddush Hashem [in the Chmielnicki massacres of 1648-9].

Hashem should avenge their blood.

====

For the purposes of this post, and my hypothesis that the SHACH = Shabtai Tzvi, this story provides a strong explanation, for why someone like the SHACH could have lost his mind to the point of ‘devolving’ into false messiah Shabtai Tzvi.

Imagine: you are told by one of the leading tzaddikim of the generation, that if you agree to die al kiddush Hashem, you will avert the looming harsh decrees, and personally save a third of the Jewish nation from horrible death and destruction.

And you refuse, because you’re an ambitious young man who first wants to get his Torah novellae ‘out there’ and known.

And then, you witness the horrible destruction that did indeed occur – the SHACH was a first-hand witness, and even wrote a historical account of the massacres that was published in 1651, in Amsterdam.

And then…. your conscience gives you no rest.

And all that suppressed anger at God for letting it happen, and suppressed guilt from not doing what you could have done to stop it yourself, literally overwhelms your psyche…

And even though you still have lucid, ‘holy’, pious and ascetic stretches of time, increasingly, you escape into ‘messianic madness’, where on some subconscious level you try to ‘force the coming of Moshiach’ – by proclaiming yourself a ‘Moshiach’ –  to rectify the situation, bring geula – and finally give your guilty conscience some rest.

Honestly, doesn’t this sound at least possible?

====

How did a ‘madman from Smyrna’ win over so very many big rabbis to his cause?

But if he was a rabbi with the stature and learning of the SHACH – who then went ‘mad’ after the destruction witnessed in and around Poland from 1648 onwards – doesn’t that explain a lot?

Doesn’t it make to easier to understand, how this ‘talmudic genius’ could create arguments for antinomian behavior and ‘tikkunim’ that could sway even the biggest kabbalists and most holy individuals?

And doesn’t it start to explain so many of the other ‘mysteries’ we have been dealing with here, including warped family trees, Sabbatean-Frankists specifically clustered, dafka, around our ‘biggest rabbis’ – and the overall horrible mess all parts of our Jewish world is currently in?

====

This is my hypothesis.

I am still working through a lot more information, including the other rabbis who were known Sabbateans within the Jewish community – and whose descendants have been wreaking havoc for the last 350 years.

These people are still in the positions of power, and that’s a big part of why all this ‘real Jewish history’ is still being actively suppressed and covered-up.

By the lies are falling, one by one.

Because you can’t keep the truth hidden forever.

====

Can anyone out there help me to translate this tombstone, meant to be for the SHACH, in Holleschau cemetery?

In particular, I’m looking for the date of death given on this tombstone, but all information would be appreciated.

Ta in advance.

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.
