My last post on Lev Tahor discussed the fact that the Canada Revenue Agency placed a lien in the amount of $4.3 million on the properties owned by Lev Tahor in Ste. Agathe-des-Monts for the nonpayment of taxes.
I received a comment from Orit Cohen whose family came into the clutches of Lev Tahor. The following is the text of her comments written in Hebrew, followed by an English translation.
I wish that I had an answer to Orit Cohen’s question of when the Jewish community will help the children of Lev Tahor. I continue to be very disenchanted with the Jewish community’s response and efforts on this matter. It is as if they are afraid of Helbrans and Lev Tahor. Maybe it is a self-centred attitude on their part.
Over the last few months, I have received a number of nasty, ignorant and uninformed responses from individuals. I have also received repeated criticisms from non-Jewish readers and their lackeys located in towns such as Peterborough, Ontario, as well as by the likes of Nachman Helbrans, a stooge and son of Shlomo Helbrans. Most of Nachman Helbrans’ comments are packed with lie after lie, and include name calling, and just about all his comments end with me being called a self-hating Jew. I am delighted that the Helbrans’ reads my blog, and I am even more delighted that I have hit a nerve.
With respect to my last post, Helbrans could not understand how Lev Tahor has stolen $4.3 million from Canadian taxpayers. As a quick lesson in government finance, governments have budgets of how much it will cost to run a country and provide services. They estimate how much is needed to be raised in taxes from Canadians. When one taxpayer, corporation or organization does not pay its share of taxes, the rest of the taxpayers are required to make up that shortfall. In this case, by not paying the $4.3 million that Lev Tahor owes, the remaining Canadian taxpayer must make it up. In other words, it’s stealing from the other taxpayers.
Helbrans again called me a self-hating Jew. I am still waiting for a sound and logical argument from him. All I receive is “name calling”.
Just to let you know Nachman, I am a proud Jew. I derive my strength in my religion from my Zionist beliefs. I am sure that my parents who are Holocaust survivors have helped me shape my identity. Had there been strong Zionism and a State of Israel in the 1940’s I am sure that the family that I have grown up with, would have been much larger. Never again, Nachman!
I am sure that you know what is written in the Talmud:
“Whoever destroys a soul, it is considered as if he destroyed an entire world. And whoever saves a life, it is considered as if he saved an entire world.” — Mishnah Sanhedrin 4:9
I have defended Judaism on countless occasions. I have sought to protect and ensure the human rights of all. In that same light, Nachman, can you and your fellow conspirators say same the same thing? Based on the comments that I received from Orit Cohen, as well as others, why do you destroy the souls of your members? Based on similar comments from the families of those who suffer under the hand of Lev Tahor, why does Lev Tahor practice physical and psychological abuse to keep these people under its spell and control?
Your actions, by keeping your members on a psychological leash and brainwashing them has affected the emotional, psychological and financial wellbeing of their extended families. I have spoken to grieving and sad parents. Some of which have had to seek psychological support which has affected their physical health. Some of them have had to be hospitalized for treatment to help them deal with their tragedies. Lev Tahor has created illness for the families of its members.
Where ever they have gone they have left misery and destruction. In Chatham, they left well over $8,000 in damages to doors. Lev Tahor has no regard for people or for society.
