Rabbi Dr. Samuel Hayyim Falk the Ba’al Shem of London and Rosicrucians or other non-Jewish esoteric circles. Falk was a practical cabbalist and as a Ba’al Shem he very probably was a member of Nistarim. Falk was accused of being a Sabbatean. Nesta Webster made the claim that there was a connection between Falk, Cagliostro and Swedenborg. Falk moved to London some time after 1736. He was a neighbor of Emmanuel Swedenborg, so that connection is more than likely. It would be fascinating if there was a connection between Falk and Cagliostro, who was involved in the French revolution (in the necklace of Marie Antoinette). I have not been able to verify this connection. Whether there was a connection or not is of course not so relevant to the modern world, but it would clarify if the medieval Nistarim secret society had some direct effect to later developments. I have earlier written that medieval practical cabbalists probably were spreading the Black Death and doing ritual murders. But that was a long time ago. It is very possible that there is no direct connection and the closest connection between Freemasons and Cabbalists is Jacob Frank.

The connection between Freemasons and practical Cabbalists through Falk is not confirmed, but it is possible.

The later connection through Frank is certain. There are also well known connections between Freemasons and Zionists, such as Mordecai Noah.

There were connections between Communists and Zionists. Moses Hess (1812-1875) was both a Communist and a Zionist and strongly influenced Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. This is nothing new: we know that the first Zionists were Communists and wanted to build Kibbutzes.
