An even better expose of the Fatima Rabbi's Criminal Skvere sect of Hasidic Judaism

The most sinister, far reaching deception of our age which 'conservatives,' 'progressives,' 'centrists' and the entire Judeo-masonic establishment are complicit in:

Unlike far-right Christian or Muslim fundamentalists, Jewish fundamentalists are often depicted as cuddly, harmless and quaint.

Rabbi Mayer Schiller is featured in the 'Fatima Center' video "Heaven's Key to Peace" HERE. He's the Hasidic Skver sect's emissary to the 'Goyim.' Rabbi Schiller reportedly was a speaker at the SSPX seminary in Ridgefield, CT whose opinion was sought on whether bishops should be consecrated by Archbishop Lefebvre in 1988. Reportedly an SSPX seminarian addressed Rabbi Schiller as "Father" HERE. Further background on Fatima Rabbi, Mayer Schiller, his anti-Christ hate cult and his inroads into traditional Catholicism HERE, HERE, HERE.

In the grips of Jewish fundamentalism: New memoir sheds light on Hasidic community

Jay Michaelson | March 17, 2015

(RNS) Just a few miles north of New York City, an all-powerful religious leader controls every aspect of his followers’ lives. Accounts detail welfare fraud, educational fraud and even gang violence. Private lives are micromanaged: Matches are arranged, books are banned, and the slightest details of personal appearance are carefully monitored, with uniformity enforced by authorized thugs.

Cult compound?

Fringe Christian sect?


New Square, N.Y., home of the extreme Hasidic Jewish sect known as the Skver Hasidim. These details come not from an outside investigative reporter — but from a heretical ex-Hasid, Shulem Deen, in his astonishing new memoir, “All Who Go Do Not Return.”

Hasidism — literally, the way of the pious — began in 18th-century Europe as a movement of Jewish spiritual revival. Although shunned by the religious authorities of the time, it became enormously popular, sweeping throughout Eastern Europe. Centered on personal spiritual experience, devout prayer (think Pentecostals in Jewish garb) and charismatic leaders (known as rebbes), Hasidism revolutionized Jewish life, especially among less-educated, less-urban populations.

But it quickly changed its character. With the threats of emancipation and assimilation looming, Hasidism turned sharply conservative in the 19th century. Practices ossified, authority was centralized, innovations were prohibited, and any accommodation to modern life was rejected. Today, Hasidim dress like 18th-century Poles.

Unlike far-right Christian or Muslim fundamentalists, Jewish fundamentalists are often depicted as cuddly, harmless and quaint. “Fiddler on the Roof,” which in its original serialized novel form was a sharp satire of religious life, is a good example.

But as Deen describes, in passage after passage, this is myth, not reality. In fact — and here numerous others buttress his account — the tightknit Skver Hasidic community exercises enormous political power to create a world within a world, where the rebbe’s dictates are law.

Deen begins his story in the middle — the night he is ordered to leave New Square under threat of excommunication. The scene is almost Kafkaesque: “rumors” of disbelief, “people are saying” that action must be taken.

But Deen also knows that the community court — unsanctioned by any civil law, but with absolute authority in the village — is actually right. He is an unbeliever.

Yet he can’t just leave. At the time, Deen is married, with five children. If he were excommunicated, they would all be marginalized, if not shunned. Even a move to nearby Monsey — considered ultra-Orthodox to everyone else, but not-quite-kosher-enough to the Skver sect — would be problematic. What to do?

Entranced by the holiness of the Skverer rebbe, in contrast to the “indistinctive and uninspiring” rebbes near his home in Brooklyn — Deen enrolled in the Skver yeshiva and began his life in New Square while in his teens. At 18, he met his future wife, whom he had neither seen nor spoken to before.

The shocking details emerge almost as asides: a rabbi teaching 18-year-olds to “be vigilant” lest their wives lead them into hell (and telling them not to call their wives by their names, but only say “Um” or “You hear”); witch hunts for people suspected of smuggling a radio or portable television into the Skver community; and widespread corporal punishment, both when Deen was a student and, later, as a teacher in yeshiva.

And the contempt for non-Jews. “The kindness of the goyim (non-Jews) is for sin,” Deen quotes the Skverer rebbe as teaching. Even when a non-Jew does a good deed, his real purpose is evil.

Then there’s the poverty. Most Hasidic men (and nearly all women) are uneducated; they speak Yiddish and disparage the teaching of English. They don’t know math or history; they have no employment skills.

Deen falls behind on rent, has trouble feeding his children, can’t hold a job. Indeed, holding a job is beneath the dignity of a Hasidic man, who, if he is fortunate, should be able to study all his life — while collecting unemployment, food stamps and welfare benefits.

Deen finally finds work as a teacher, where his duties involve fraudulently completing progress reports for New York state while not teaching any of the subjects he is reporting on, and collecting government subsidies.

How does it all unravel? Slowly. Deen’s first explorations of the outside world take place in books. The provocative title of his memoir, we learn midway through, refers to books — not just a “woman of loose morals.” His sins are intellectual, not carnal. First, a few Jewish books. Then, a radio. Then, secular books at the library. And then the Internet, where Deen meets non-Orthodox Jews for the first time.

Already, we see the fault lines appear between Deen and his wife, Gitty. Deen protests that his explorations are harmless. Gitty knows he is going astray. And she does not go with him. As Deen’s curiosity turns to skepticism turns to doubt, Gitty watches him fall “off the path” and eventually decides she’s had enough. They separate, then divorce.

Now it’s time for the spoiler alert. Deen loses everything: his wife, his children, his family, his friends, his community.

And his faith. Even before his expulsion from the community, Deen finds he can no longer pray, can no longer believe the stories he’s been told. “What is the meaning of right and wrong when there is no guidance from a divine being? … What, then, was the point of it all?”

He finds his way, somewhat, but “All Who Go” does not end happily. Yes, Deen founds a popular blog for ex-Hasidim, gets a job, finds his way in the secular world. But there’s a hollowness to his new life and a bitter sadness over the loss of his children. Not only does Gitty get sole custody, the entire community warns them against him. Even his few-and-far-between visits become unsustainable; his children shut him out.

All this unfolds against a backdrop of institutional Jewish indifference. The multimillion-dollar Jewish federations do nothing for these communities, other than distribute charity — usually through the Hasidic power structure, thus reinforcing its control. Footsteps, an organization helping ex-Hasidim navigate the secular world — job training, GEDs — remains a small and independent outlier. (Deen is now a board member.)

Despite numerous sex scandals; exposes in The New Yorker, The New York Times and The Jewish Daily Forward; widespread power abuses; and nauseating episodes such as the herpes epidemic spread by Hasidic mohels (ritual circumcisers) who insist on sucking the blood directly off of circumcision wounds, the mainstream Jewish establishment is silent. Partly this is out of fear, and partly out of the peculiarly American Jewish notion that Jewish fundamentalists are better Jews than the rest of us.

Meanwhile, politicians are terrified of Hasidic voting blocs. Hasidim now control the East Ramapo school district, which includes New Square, and are starving secular schools (almost all black and Hispanic) to enrich their own religious academies.

Deen’s harrowing story, then, is also an indictment of those who are standing by and allowing it to be. To many, the Hasidim are quaint throwbacks, their lives pious scenes set to the tune of “L’Chayim” and “Sunrise, Sunset.” But to those trapped inside the Hasidic world, the tale is not comedy but tragedy. And there is often no soundtrack at all.

This is from the BBC, Bp. Williamson,

"My definition of anti-Semitism is to be against every single Jew purely because he's a Jew. That's not at all my case. I once had a Jewish rabbi come and speak to seminarians. Does that sound to you like anti-Semitism?"

and tomorrow according to Andrea Tornielli Bp. Williamson will ordain a new bishop, Fr. Jean-Michel Faure.

Maurice Pinay has tracked the occult footprints in the “traditional Catholic” movement with admirable persistence.

The occult is indeed alive and well inside so-called "traditional Catholicism." Occultism is not an exclusively Left wing or liberal phenomenon, though the Cryptocracy would like us to believe that it is limited to the Left.

“Fatima priest” Fr. Gruner’s alliance with the Talmudic rabbi, as documented in Gruner's own video, is evidence of this. So too is a forthcoming Right wing Catholic conference dedicated to honoring Ramon Lull, whose quasi-Kabbalistic tropes helped to influence the thought of Giordano Bruno. This conference dares to attempt to integrate Dante, the medieval bulwark against sorcery and usury, with Lull, medieval spiritual father of Renaissance sorcerers like Bruno (

Furthermore, Right wing “Catholic” occultists view the Tridentine Mass as a magical rite.

This not the legacy of “Vatican II.” This is the legacy of the popes of the Renaissance and their co-conspirators, as I endeavor to prove in a book I hope to have finished this autumn.

Today I emailed Father Gruner at to say "shame on you" for using the enemies of Christendom and that he knows better. I used to work with him on radio and TV so I know.

The link to the conference which Mr. Hoffman provided indicates that Cardinal Burke will speak at the conference. And this is the Cardinal on whom the neo-conservative Novus Ordinarians wish to pin their hopes....

If Schiller thinks the Fatima Consecrations are so needed and the apparitions so important and true for 'world' peace, WHY is he still a Judaic? WHY hasn't he converted to Traditional Roman Catholicism?


Indeed. Rabbi Schiller endorses the message that 'Russia must convert' but has no intention of converting himself.

The simple answer is that Schiller is perpetuating the ancient hate war of his Khazar ancestors against the Russian Christian people.

Could it also be a tactic to induce a climate of fear in the population as a whole; like the scare tactics of the global warmers, and terrorism mongers?
When I came into contact with the so-called traditonal Catholics because of the Latin Mass, two things about their behaviour stood out as being decidely non_catholic .
Firstly, their puritanism and secondly their obsession with the Apocalypse. Their puritanism shocked me because puritanism arose from the rejection of the retention of 'popish" ceremonies by the Church of England. Puritans were persecuted by the anglicans not by the Catholics. And it was the puritans under Oliver Cromwell that persecuted, enslaved,and starved to death the Irish Catholics in their attempt to destroy the Catholic faith.
When I left the "traditional" sect because of their heretical teachings about salvation through desire and invincible ignorance, I tried to understand (as far as my limited intelligence allows) this abberation.
Puritanism is a heresy because it denies the dogma of the Catholic faith that God created a good world and that the material world shows no decadence in it's separation from the Divine. Evil is present in this world because of the disordered will of fallen mankind. In addition we believe that the Incarnation of Our Lord Jesus Christ raised the good ness of creation, including man,to a new level. This is why the Catholic Church encouraged the arts, the visual representation of God made flesh, and musical, in the worship, love and service of God. Puritans were iconclasts and destroyed much of the religious art of the pre_Reformation English Churches.
The belief that the material world is corrupt because of it's separation from the Divine is a gnostic heresy. Belloc in his book "The Great Heresies" stated that Puritanism was a Manichean heresy, because they believe that the material world, tobacco, wine etc. and pastimes such as dancing are intrinsically evil.
As a child, I remember that apocalyptic obsessions were the preserve of the North American puritans and apparently it is the result of their belief that the material world is evil and needs to be destroyed in order that the few perfect survivors may bulid their New Jeusalem.
The so-called traditional Catholics have also jumped on the puritan apocalyptic bandwagon with their obessions with the apparitions of Salette and Fatima which predict the coming chastisement of the whole world and evil mankind which will spare, of course, their own holy selves.
Before anyone jumps in to tell me that these apparitions were authorised by the Church, I will repeat the words of wisdom from St. John of the Cross, chapter 11, from "The Ascent of Mount Carmel"; that we 1)should reject ALL private revelations , both good and bad;
2) that they are NOT Necessary for our salvation;
3)that many are instigated by Satan to confuse and lead astray the spirtually weak;
4) as they are perceived by the senses they are prone to misinterpretaion;
5)that God is happy when we reject private revelations as it demonstrates that "we walk in faith and not by sight"
The fact that in both these alleged apparitions of Our Lady, She talks about "secrets" should give anyone pause for thought , as the possession of secrets not shared by the rest of mankind is a gnostic attribute. The Gospels and the epistles never talk of secrets. The Good news is available to all.
This subject is very dense but I have tried to summarise, very inadequately, the conclusions I have reached. I also discovered that apocalyptic beliefs are also intrinsic to jewish cabala, which is perhaps another reason why they are being promoted by the hasidic rabbi.

As far as my limited spiritual vision can discern, aren't the Fatimists too late in their frenzied postulations. 55 years after the event of a secret not revealed and dire Marian admonishments about imminent chastisement, surely the signs of the times reveal that punishment is inescapable. The message should now be prepare thyself for the wrath to come. Padre Pio's letter about the three days of darkness appear far more realistic as a strategy in our times.
Perhaps, the unfortunate rabbi really knows something Fatima enthusiasts don't.

I mistakenly attributed views expressed by JMR to Leon G. Sincere apologies to both.

Give me names and quotes of valid catholic priests and bishops (not judeo Vatican 2 freemasons) who view the Catholic holy sacrifice of the mass as occult magic.
