Latest Israeli report on LEV TAHOR & ""Shlomo Helbrans, Part 2


The truth is that I was quite disappointed after reading the second part of the series on LEV TAHOR and its "Rabbi" Shlomo Helbrans. About ten days ago, I wrote about the Israeli daily ISRAEL HAYOM publishing various facts on the self - appointed chassidic group LEV TAHOR.

However, in its second part, ISRAEL HAYOM quoted a few former group members having left Lev Tahor. A brother and his sister now living as secular Jews in Israel. The brother is a soldier in the Israeli army and both siblings escaped from Canada after brainwashing and punishments carried out by Shlomo Helbrans. The girl was supposed to get married at the age of 14 and she preferred to escape after her brother had done so before.

Furthermore, ISRAEL HAYOM quoted a married couple having escaped from Lev Tahor and now living in Europe. They still lead a haredi lifestyle and the woman even dresses like the Taliban ladies. Both of them were Baalei Teshuva but couldn't cope with "Rabbi" Helbrans. 

LEV TAHOR sent a two - page message to ISRAEL HAYOM which the paper published. Lev Tahor says that anyone is free to join the group but also to leave the group if he feels unable to follow the strict Takanot. There are no people being punished and no force is being used towards the group members. The group does not go against any Canadian law and it is the Zionists spreading all kinds of rumours. 

The Israeli police stated that they do not get involved when parents complain about their children being stuck and abused at Lev Tahor in Canada. The police says that those parents must file complaints at the Canadian police and not in Israel.

Personally, I am just having one more question:

"Who is actually financing LEV TAHOR" or in other words "Where do they get their money from ?" A topic ISRAEL HAYOM didn't even investigate.


  1. This cult “ Lev Tahor" has nothing to do with Judaism. This so called “rabbi” Solomon Arez Hell-branz and son Nuchman may not even be Jewish. He is a cult-leader and a fraud and always has been. Every Jewish organization on earth has been rebuking them even in public, as no different than the David Koresh cult in Waco, or the Jonestown cult. We should be keeping a spotlight on this fraudster as much as possible and call this what it is: A CULT.

    This cult “leader” and son Nuchman are VERY dangerous man who uses mind-control techniques to pray on the weak minded. Nuchman the son can not be trusted, he is a big lier with out a drop truth.

    Believe it or not, it is VERY easy to start a cult if you want to. All it takes is a few lost souls willing to have a boatload of children for you. ”

  2. A teen under the age of 18 who was pregnant at the time was taken to the Montreal Children's Hospital, where she reported to nurses that she was beaten badly by her brother, sexually abused by her father, and married at age 15 to a 30-year-old man, according to newly released court documents.

    The incident occurred on Dec. 11, 2012, and was one of several allegations of abuse that authorities documented about the ultra-Orthodox Jewish cult Lev Tahor in Ste-Agathe-des-Monts, Que., over the span of two years.

    While photos were taken of the teen's injuries, neither police officers nor youth protection case workers were able to speak with her because she was incoherent.

    In another case, Quebec's Youth Protection Department removed a girl in the spring of 2012 after she reported to authorities her father, and the wicked vicious abuser the wife of one of the community's leaders, Mayer Rosner, hit her several times with a belt over the period of six months. The documents don't detail whether the girl was ever returned to her family.

    The documents were unsealed in court last week after a consortium of media sought access. The information to obtain the search warrant was released by the Surete du Quebec (SQ) Friday and was heavily redacted. The allegations have not been proven and the identities of children in the cult are protected by a court order.

    On April 24, 2012, Quebec police investigator Stephane Chartrand received a document detailing allegations of abuse in the cult, including locking girls in basements as a form of punishment, removing children from their families, controlling members of the community with psychological drugs, and forcing girls aged 14 and 15 to get married, where the minimum legal age in Canada is 16.

    Quebec's Youth Protection Department made regular visits to the cult in the summer and fall of 2013, where they noted unsanitary conditions in the homes of community members, but they were working with the community to address several concerns.
