HE POSED AS A RIGHTEOUS JEWISH CONVERT, THEN WROTE AN ANTISEMITIC CREED

 “Eisenmenger belonged to the class of insects which sucks poison even out of flowers,” the 19th-century Jewish historian Heinrich Graetz wrote.

Graetz was referring to Johann Andreas Eisenmenger, a young 17th-century scholar from Mannheim, Germany, who dedicated some 19 years of his life to mastering the Talmud and presenting himself to the Jewish community as a prospective “ger tzedek,” or righteous convert. He learned Hebrew, Aramaic and even Arabic during his intellectual journey, and read the whole Talmud roughly three times.



And then, in 1700, Eisenmenger published “Judaism Unmasked,” one of the most noxious and highly influential antisemitic works ever written.

    I actually met somebody with the same last name from germany, on business. A very shady and dishonest character.

  2. I have a theory. Maybe he genuinely wanted to convert. Then he became disillusioned. We have an example of that on this blog which has a post about a certain man who came from a backgroundcwhere he did not follow the Torah, then learned Torah and kept the Torah for years, and now is a Rabbi to those identifying as moral perverts, while he himself distorts the Torah on their behalf.

    he could have gone in with a bias or a plan, or just cynical hatred
    what happens when an Amalek comes to convert?

  5. reminds me of a student at the Yeshiva I attended. Was the Rosh Yeshiva's favorite student. Very intellectual and smart but without soul. One day he decided to through away his kipah and revealed his true colors.

    Berel, like Eisenmenger, is an antisemite. He scours the internet for the most vile. Antisemitic caricatures, and then posts them freely on here. Shouldn't he be put in nidui?
