The ultra-radical Jewish sect Lev Tahor claims to be welcome in Morroco

During his recent visit in Morocco, Uriel Goldman, one of the leaders of Lev Tahor, an extremist Jewish group, claims to have received the blessing of Rabbi Yoshiyahu Pinto, one of the key players in the Israeli-Morocco rapprochement, to settle in the kingdom, we learn from the Israeli press.

They recall that the group was founded by Rabbi Shlomo Helbrans in Jerusalem in the 1980s, adding that it is "an embattled ultra-Orthodox cult."

Rabbi Pinto declined to make a statement on the matter, while a representative of Morocco's Jewish community said he had no knowledge of the cult and Pinto was not connected to the wider Jewish community.
