Where the Rabbi Gets His Money

Exposé turns up sketchiness in Rabbi Pinto’s operations

Print Email
LeBron James (L) and Rabbi Pinto (R).(TMZ)

Josh Nathan-Kazis at the Forward has done some digging into the finances of revered Rabbi Yoshiyayu Yosef Pinto, and, turns out, the heir to a prominent line of Moroccan rabbis who was weirdly associated with a weird death and who gives LeBron James “spiritual guidance” on how to make more money is—shockingly, I know!—kind of sketchy about money himself. It certainly seems odd that someone paid a “minimum” salary lives in a very nice house and flies first class to Israel and back. Not sure whether Kabbalah is supposed to help you with that sort of thing.
