In the past, many newspapers interviewed numerous people who were victimized and cheated in financial dealing with the cult. There are numerous cases of Shlomo Helbrans and his cult leaving Ste. Agathe-des-Monts, and leaving behind debts to various contractors who provided goods and services. These were hard-working and unsuspecting individuals who were duped and cheated.

Lev Tahor is known as a cult by mainstream Judaism. There are accusations of human trafficking, child abuse, spousal abuse, poor living conditions, and many other crimes.

Now we find out that the Canada Revenue Agency has placed a lien on 34 properties owned by the cult in Ste. Agathe-des-Monts in the amount of $4.4 million dollars in unpaid taxes.

As someone who has worked with the families of members who were “sucked into” the cult, I can only confirm that one of Lev Tahor’s on-going legacies are the unpaid debts that that they leave behind. They left Chatham-Kent for Guatemala without paying rent for the houses they occupied. A few weeks ago, I received a telephone call from a local lawyer, who was not paid for legal services rendered to the cult.

I found that in 2012 the Society for Spiritual Development, one of Lev Tahor’s charities, transferred $3.3 million to another Jewish charity in Quebec, the Canadian Friends of Holy Land Institution in 2012. That year, they only reported income in the amount of $678,470.

Now we find out that they own the Government of Canada $4.4 million. As citizens and taxpayers we should be outraged since any government shortfall must be shared by remaining taxpayers. In other words, we, collectively, the Canadian taxpayer has to assume their unpaid debt.

The cult has broken one of the ten commandments numerous time. I wonder how many more commandments these pious and so called observant and “G-d Fearing” manipulators, hypocrites and child abusers have broken.


Search Warrant Shows Criminal Investigations at Lev Tahor

Members of the Lev Tahor community are now at the centre of a criminal investigation.

Earlier today, police authorities from Quebec along with Chatham-Kent Police arrived at the Lev Tahor apartments north of Chatham, Ontario with a search warrant looking for documents and computers.

Lev Tahor was recently in family court to fight a move by the Chatham-Kent Children’s Aid Society to remove 14 of its children from their families. Last November, the sect packed up and moved in the middle of the night to Chatham, lock, stock and “chumash” (printed version of the Torah), before a Quebec verdict of whether or not children should be removed from their community and placed in foster homes, came down. The sect is now awaiting a judge’s ruling on the Chatham-Kent Children’s Aid Society decision to remove 14 of its children from their families at the request of Quebec child welfare authorities which was based on evidence of abuse, neglect, poor hygiene and other concerns. The judge’s decision is expected to be made on February 3rd. Continue reading
