Nachman Breier, former chef of New Square’s Grand Rabbi Twersky Charged In Nude Picture Scandal
When the story about a Monsey ambulance driver who was peeping into hotel rooms and photographing couples having sexual relations first circulated, we chose to leave the story go. Our mission is not necessarily to cover each and every incident wherein a Jewish man commits a crime. Were we to do that, the number of stories – so we’ve discovered – would be endless.
When today’s article about the incident, published in Lohud, identified the ambulance driver as Grand Rabbi Twersky’s former chef, the story turned a corner. (We can set aside the fact that Twersky has a chef while members of his community live on welfare and foodstamps.)
Rabbi Twersky, worshipped as a virtual G-d in his community of New Square, is one of our favorites as far as how unpalatable he is. He drives a luxury vehicle, has two homes both equipped with their own private Mikvahs; and while his people are mostly starving he lives in the lap of luxury. A personal chef proves that point full stop.
Rabbi Twersky has even been known to threaten [order the burning of] a person within his own community who refused to worship New Square’s great synagogue. He then announced the celebration of the release of the criminal who committed the atrocious burning. His tyranny seems to know no bounds.
Nachman Breier was Rabbi Twersky’s personal chef. One does not just become a Peeping Tom [sexual preditor] overnight. Moreover, he still drives Rabbi Twersky around (in his luxury vehicles) occasionally.
So, Rabbi Twersky, we ask: “Have you known about your employee(s)’ sexual proclivities?”
Cops: Grand rabbi’s ex-chef snapped nude pics
A driver and former chef for New Square’s grand rabbi David Twersky faces charges for allegedly taking surreptitious cell phone photos of nude couples in a Bergen County, New Jersey, motel.
Officers in Fort Lee arrested Nachman Breier on Monday night on a charge of third-degree invasion of privacy. The arrest comes following an investigation into a prowler reportedly looking into windows at the Skyview Motel on Bergen Boulevard early on the morning of May 18, Fort Lee police said in a news release.
Breier, 54, lives in Monsey and is part of the Skverer Hasidic sect, which is based in New Square and led by Twersky.
Multiple sources, including two New Square residents and one former resident , told The Journal News that Breier served as Twersky’s cook for more than 20 years and is still among a small group of followers chosen to drive the grand rabbi to special events. Breier’s brother, Herschel, also worked for years in Twersky’s home as a house manager and aide.
Nachman Breier, who police identified as a beverage deliveryman, is suspected in similar incidents in Bergen County, New Jersey, and Rockland County according to a statement released by Deputy Chief Timothy Ford.
Calls to Breier’s home were not immediately returned.
One motel guest told officers that an unknown man opened the hotel room window and took cell phone photos of him and his wife while they were naked. Another couple told officers that a man opened the window to their room, moved the curtain to the side and reached into the room attempting to photograph them as they were engaged in sexual activity, police said.
The man ran off when spotted, police said.
A man later identified as Nachman Breier was seen driving off in a black Toyota Sienna minivan with a New York Volunteer Ambulance Service license plate, police said.
Anybody with additional information related to the case is asked to call the Fort Lee Police Department Detective Bureau at 201-592-3510.
