Lev Tahor Documentary Part I with English subtitles

Amnon Levi interviews Aryeh Laver, a 21-year-old Israeli whose mother joined the extreme Jewish group, Lev Tahor, then living in Ste-Agathe-des-Monts, Quebec, Canada. According to accounts of former members, the group practices underage marriage, corporal punishment, semi-starvation, and mind control with psychiatric medication. The show aired in November, 2012.

Since the show aired, five children of an ex-member have been removed. On November 27, 2013, Montreal judge Pierre Hamel ruled that 14 additional children should also be removed. In advance of the ruling, the group moved to Chatham-Kent, Ontario, claiming that they were being forced to teach subjects that conflict with their religious beliefs. Ontario has not upheld the Quebec ruling but a hearing is scheduled for January 10, 2014
