    I went to Lev Tahor every week for a speech from 8pm to 5am and got addicted. He is an amazing speaker and hypnotizer. Yes he speaks 9 hours straight. I was only an outsider seeking guidance. I wasn’t exposed to the real crap. E.g. I only heard about the lashes but never witnessed it. The way I heard it though: It is not him. The followers themselves ask for it. So what should he do? Not give it? He said that is the Messiah. He said that he once revealed to a family in UK the lottery combination and they won. I asked him for guidence. He smacked me because he saw that my soul isn't pure, which reflects that I masturbated. He did a lengthy ritual on his son and continued in private some parts of the ritual which was “too dangerous to perform in public, because he saw that someone inflicted his son with a bad eye. He lives like a king. His followers like pigs. His followers will do anything and everything he asks without a question. I pity any lost soul that ends up there. Parents that send their children to Lev Tahor probably have a story to hide! This group fits every definition of a cult.
