We think it is important that you be aware of who you are allowing to use your premises for his activities. Steven Joel Levin has being accused by his own son of sexually abusing him. Steven Joel Levin defends himself by the fact that the court never persecuted him. The truth is that the court will dismiss most cases of allegations of sexual abuse by a parent. Their guidelines are that they are innocent until proven guilty and child sexual abuse cases can be very difficult to prove largely because cases where definitive, objective evidence exists are the exception rather than the rule. The most common reaction from a parent who has abuse his own child is to “accuse the other parent of being crazy, vindictive and coaching the child” as a way of self-defense. Sadly, we all know how the system makes mistakes. They can either condemned the innocent or free the guilty.
Here are some facts about Steven Joel Levin that we strongly suggest you investigate and could help you to reconsider his membership and avoid liability:
A report on Steven Levin’s son dated June 26, 2002 done by Dr. Hallady, pediatrician, and the director of child protection service unit at B.C. Children’s Hospital were Dr Hallady concludes /“that the findings seen last week would be consistent with anal trauma having occurred. There was no infection detected. I was shown the drawings that he did by my social worker, Jenny Ireland, and my nurse. I am concerned about these. As well, I feel that the police and the ministry should be informed of the drawings (The drawings made by the child, one of them shows his father, Steven Levin, repeatedly hitting him over the head with a bat and the second one shows his father with an erection and the child with his bum. “/
All of this can be corroborated. You can also corroborate that Steven Levin has taken his ex wife and mother of his child, more than thirty times to court since their divorce, seven years ago. In all, he was always the plaintiff and she was the defendant. All for minor matters. What kind of man takes the mother of his child that many times to court? What kind of cleric? A man who has no compassion, a man who is self-centered, a very disturbed man. Do you really want to act as the church has with their clerics by pretending the victimizers were the victims and vice versa?
As disturbing and painful as this matter is, allowing Steven Levin to use the honorable title of Hazzan and working as such will only damage our community.
