Rabbi Antony Gordon In Federal Court

This looks like it has led to Antony Gordon’s Chapter Seven bankruptcy, which is a straight liquidation.

This (2:13-ap-01536-DS 1568931 Ontario Ltd., an Ontario (Canada Corporati v. Gordon et al) looks like a Rabbi Chanan (Antony) Gordon bankruptcy (an attorney, motivational speaker, and hedge fund manager).

There is also another lawsuit against Antony Gordon.

Antony Gordon believes the matter will be resolved soon and that all allegations of wrongdoing will be dispelled and all creditors will get paid.

I have heard from people who’ve been solicited for personal loans by Antony Gordon and I know there are several people who extended such short-term loans for thousands of dollars and have not been paid back. Anyone with information should get in touch with me — lukeisback @ gmail.com.

A key part of Antony’s pitch to borrow money is telling people, “I’m an Orthodox rabbi. You can trust me.”

The next time someone tells you that, run. Orthodox Jews in the world today are no more likely to be ethical and upstanding in business than pagan black plumbers who snort coke and swing on weekends.

Antony Gordon fills his pitches for money and for delay of repayment with inspirational messages from Torah, including the admonition it is not permitted to pressure people for repayment. He told some creditors he would make a big push within his religious community to borrow money before Rosh Hashanah, but apparently he did not have much success.

Antony Gordon lives in a six bedroom, four bathroom rented mansion in Hancock Park. To seek out money, he tells sad stories about his children needing medication and medical care. He needs money to pay his phone bill so he can make things happen. He seeks retainers from small businesses, promising to raise big money for them.

I am told: “Who did your conversion, Rabbi Artson? You obviously do not know how Orthodox Jews use the bankruptcy process.”

I wonder what happened to the $9 million? Perhaps it all went to supporting yeshivas?
