It’s been almost a year since Shlomo Helbrans drowned in Mexico, leaving Lev Tahor, the controversial religious sect he founded in Israel in the 1980s, without its charismatic leader.If they're trying to build mango groves, they don't deserve to, in all due honesty, and it's time to shut them down to stop the child abuse they're still very likely to be committing. The cult's been nothing but trouble, worst of all to their own subjects, and should not be allowed to continue functioning anywhere.
The flock, which followed Helbrans from Jerusalem’s Beit Yisrael neighborhood to Brooklyn to the snowy suburbs of Montreal before settling in tropical Guatemala, now faces an uncertain future.
