Los Angeles Jewish Community Should Investigate Alleged Racketeering Among Its Leaders…

by Human Rights Alert, NGO Wednesday, Mar. 23, 2011 at 12:20 PM

Los Angeles, March 22 – Human Rights Alert (NGO) and Joseph Zernik, PhD, launched a petition, calling on Los Angeles Jewish community to investigate allegations of racketeering by leaders of its organizations. ____ Please sign the Petition:

The Los Angeles Jewish Community Should Investigate Alleged Racketeering Among Its Leaders…Sandor Samuels, David Pasternak…


Los Angeles, March 22 – Human Rights Alert (NGO) and Joseph Zernik, PhD, launched a petition, calling on Los Angeles Jewish community to investigate allegations of racketeering by leaders of its organizations.


Please sign the Petition:


We the undersigned call upon the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles, and leadership of the following Los Angeles Jewish organizations to initiate investigation of racketeering among its leadership:

1) Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles

RICHARD V SANDLER – Chairman of the Board

2) Bet Tzedek ‘The House of Justice”

MICHELLE WILLIAMS COURT, Vice President and General Counsel

3) American Jewish University, Los Angeles

Rabbi ROBERT WEXLER, President

4) Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies

Rabbi ROBERT WEXLER, President

5) Shalhevet School

NATHAN REYNOLDS, Interim Head of School

6) Adat Ari El Synagogue, Valley Village


The petition pertains to the following individuals:

1) SANDOR SAMUELS (General Counsel of Bank of America Home Loans; former Chief Legal Officer, Countrywide)

President, Bet Tzedek

President, Adat Ari El Synagogue, Valley Village

Board Member, American Jewish University

Board Member, Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies.

Board Member, Shalhevet School

2) DAVID PASTERNAK (former President, the Los Angeles Bar Association)

Former President, Bet Tzedek

Apparent Board Member, Bet Tzedek (list of Board Members no longer published)

Overwhelming evidence has been produced of racketeering by SANDOR SAMUELS and DAVID PASTERNAK through real estate fraud in the courts. Some of the evidence pertains to conduct of SANDOR SAMUELS in his capacity as President of Bet Tzedek -

”The House of Justice” – on the grounds of Bet Tzedek. The evidence is supported by opinions of top US fraud experts.

Such evidence was central to the 2010 report by Human Rights Alert (NGO) to the Human Rights Council of the United Nations. The report was later incorporated into the official Staff Report with reference to “corruption of the courts and the legal profession… in California”.

Refusal of the US government to take action does not absolve the Los Angeles Jewish Community from its duties and obligations to itself and to the public at large to safeguard the integrity of its community institutions.
