Adam Brudzewsky: Lev Tahor whistleblower or paranoiac?

Television cameras rushed to capture Adam Brudzewsky’s arrival at a Saint-Jérôme, Que., courthouse one snowy morning last November, dressed in the distinctive orthodox Jewish outfit of wide-brimmed black hat, black silk coat tied at the waist, bushy beard and payot, the curled strand of hair flanking his face.

He was there for a hearing that would end eight hours later with a judge’s order that 14 children from the radical Jewish sect Lev Tahor should be taken into the care of foster families in Montreal despite 200 members of the group having fled a few days earlier to a new life in Chatham-Kent, Ont.

Brudzewsky, who is in his late 20s, gave a nervous smile as he passed the journalists.
