British Haredi extremist backs funding for Lev Tahor

It looks like the Islamized Haredi cult has its backers in Britain as well, including an awful rabbi who was once accused of covering up sexual abuse himself:
Leading Charedi rabbis have supported a fundraising event for Shlomo Helbrans, whose strictly Orthodox group has previously been investigated for child abuse.

Helbrans is a convicted kidnapper who heads Lev Tahor, a cult of around 50 families which settled in Canada in 2003. The entire group emigrated to Guatemala last year to evade an investigation by child protection services.

The event in Stamford Hill, north London, on Monday night was aimed at raising money to support Helbrans’s group, and was backed by Rabbi Ephraim Padwa, head of the Union of Orthodox Hebrew Congregations (UOHC).

In a flyer which was distributed in synagogues throughout the Stamford Hill area, Rabbi Padwa told community members to donate to the group.

He wrote: “The congregation ‘Lev Tahor’, whose dwelling was in the land of Canada, and suddenly the anger of the local government fell upon them, with the aid of informers ("mosrim"), and they began to interfere and make decrees, and to interfere with matters of educating boys and girls, so that they were forced to uproot from their dwelling and they went to the state of Guatemala, fleeing.

“And there in their new place they are in a dire situation and have almost nothing.”
Padwa was once recorded discouraging people from reporting cases of sexual assault, and it's not new for people like him to be siding with aggressors behind closed doors. This is absolutely shameful and does nothing to help put an end to such awful abuse.
