As YWN reported last week, some Lev Tahor members have taken residence in Sarajevo, in the latest of a series of destinations since leaving Guatemala.

Neighbors of the cult members told local media that they are perturbed by the cult members’ presence in their vicinity and they want them removed from the area.

Meanwhile, at least one young local resident decided to befriend the cult members. In a video obtained by B’Chadrei Chareidim he’s seen talking to the cult leaders in English and offering to assist them with whatever they need, adding that many locals and the media are saying negative things about them but he personally doesn’t believe them.

The cult leaders seemed very interested in connecting with the young man and wanted to exchange phone numbers but were unable to do so because the encounter took place on Shabbos. They agreed that the man would come back the next night and meanwhile gave him some snacks as gifts.

He also asked them how long they were staying and they answered him that they don’t know. It’s likely that the cult members received a ninety-day residence permit in the country and afterward will have to leave or file an extended asylum request.

  1. Refoel Moishe, They seem to have been careful to put the snack down on the fence, released their hand from the snack and the goy took it from the fence.

    This would avoid the issur drabbonon scenerios discussed in the first Mishneh of Shabbos, when the baal habos standing inside the house gives food to the ani standing outside.

  2. Poor Bosnia!!

    Dangerous persons who should be stopped. The list of crimes are long and the they should be prosecuted as well as there men’s behind them.

    Interesting is the fact that some of there members or former members are ready to everything to get same Dollars. For example they kidnapped just recently a US?- Israeli citizen, who they believed his family is rich. He is a so called half orphan……. They have a lot of help in Monsey and Boro Park. Same Mexican Ger family in Monsey, illegal in the US….. Same guy in Boro Park rises money for them. And two Yeshivot were same of there of their (former) members are connected to: Derech Chaim in Boro Park and Torat David in Monsey..

  3. Refoel Moishe, before you thistly look for criticism, please note they are purposely holding the snacks in their side of fence (sticking it out just a bit) clearly trying to make the Goy take it from them and avoid Hoitsahah.
    Guys lets stop hatting, their Rabbi and founder is dead and current Rabbi in jail, most of there here are born and raised (or just raised and brainwashed), lets try to cut them at least as much slack as you cut the Amish.

    (and if you have influence in getting someone out then its Pidyon Shviyum, but as long as you dont take them out try to make their life easier not harder).

  5. wHO CARES ABOUT THIS NONSENSE. BY POSTING THESE THINGS IT SJUST SHOWS THAT YOU SOMEWHAT ASSOCIATE YOURSELF WITH THEM. WE HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM. DO WE POST ABOUT SOME FRINGE GROUP IN AFRICA?
    YWN SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES.
    THIS IS A CHILLUL HASHEM AND YOU ARE PUBLICIZING IT.

  6. RM:

    This LT cult does not follow Torah Sheb’al Peh, and thus are ignorant or resistant to eiruv. I no longer expect anyone from this group to follow halacha, which is not their guide at all.

  7. Those who falsely claim they did some issur in this video, you are wrong.

    They seem to have been careful to put the snack down on the fence, released their hand from the snack and the goy took it from the fence.

    As far as giving food to a goy, the shabbos goy would get challah…

    Look, there is plenty wrong with Lev Tahor, even plenty of really terrible wrongs, so no need to create fake wrongs!

  8. At last! Exciting to get the responses I expected! Looks like my post will soon get 600,000 responses! Yes, of course I noticed the pushing the doritos or whatever they are thru the fence. And yes, Ysiegel, interesting point but not the halocho. Feeding a goy on Shabbos is NOT prohibited. It is Yom Tov when we may not, in case we add food and cook it for them. On Shabbos we may not cook anyway, so we won’t cook more because of them. And apdsvys, regarding giving a matono is acceptable when it is for positive purposes, especially when it is to gain favour to achieve a positive outcome. Please note that I have not got into the actual arguements or claims of the people involved. Just winding everyone up to discuss halochos rather than talking about the ins and outs of styles of living….including Amishes whatever they are! Stay busy everyone and get back to learning the Haylige Mishnayos!

  9. I hope the evil, sick leaders of Lev Tahor do teshuva ASAP. I am cracking up reading all these reviews.

    Refoel Moishe: No one could care less if they were chillul shabbos or not. You have to understand these people

    are sick, and evil, and the way they live their lives could not be more against the way Hashem wants us to live.

    So although it definitely matters, we shouldn’t put attention to this issue, as there are SO many more

    important issue this sickening cult has.

    To everyone who responded to his review, the same thing.

    P.S: Whenever I write “Lev Tahor”, or “them” I am referring to the leaders, and not to the victims.
