Warning to Our Community

The purpose of this letter is to protect anyone else from being harmed.

It has come to our attention that Cantor Steven Joel Levin has been misrepresenting himself and his credentials. On his resume he had stated that he has a bachelor's degree in music. After checking his references we have learned that Steven Levin never completed his degree. The truth of the matter is that he does not even have a formal education as a cantor.

Over the last few years there have been other types of allegations made against Cantor Steven Levin. The other allegations made against Levin include child sexual abuse and professional sexual misconduct. Beth Israel synagogue did their best to investigate the claims, which ended with them terminating the contract they had with him, due to his misrepresenting himself as a college graduate.

Do you think this man is a good role model for our children?

Do you think that a man who has egregiously violated the Ten Commandments should be singing prayers that teach us how to be moral and better?

There are two institutions in our community who are so desperate to have a cantor that they are willing to put their congregants and their congregant's children at risk of harm. These two institutions include:

1) JCC in White Rock
2) Burquest jewish Community association

We strongly believe a spiritual leader is a teacher, who should live by high moral standards. Steven Levin has failed. We strongly believe that he is not
appropriate to be in the position to be setting an example to children or to anyone in our community at large.

After a few phone calls and putting the information together, we have learned that the two institutions hired Levin because “with his history and background, he will not be very expensive”. Unfortunately, we believe they have made a horrible mistake. Can you imagine how expensive it will be for all of us, if he manipulates another person (adult or child) into having sexual relations with him?
