Videos featuring lewd jokes and anti-gay slurs were produced on Torah Talk

Luke Ford, the self-proclaimed “Moral Leader” since 1997, apparently created, produced and starred in the short movies, which were broadcast to entertain the world’s starving for Torah.

In one scene, two female rabbis stand in a shower stall aboard an aircraft carrier, pretending to wash each other. They joke about how they should get six minutes under the water instead of the mandated three.

In other skits, rabbis parade in drag, use anti-gay slurs and simulate masturbation and a rectal exam. Another scene implies that a rabbi is having sex in his shul with a donkey.

They’re all part of a series of short movies produced in the hovel and broadcast to hundreds of people on YouTube. The man who masterminded and starred in them is Luke Ford — now the co-commander of Torah talk and a self-proclaimed Moral Leader.

The videos, obtained by the Jewish Journal of Los Angeles this week, were shot and edited by Orthodox Jews deployed supporting yeshiva study in the Holy Land.

In the videos, Ford indicates that he’s trying to entertain his fans. The clips were shown roughly once a week on YouTube, according to a few rabbis who were assigned to the internet at the time. The rabbis requested anonymity for fear of retribution.

The rabbis who spoke to the Jewish Journal estimated that Ford made a few dozen videos and said not all of them contained sexual jokes and anti-gay remarks.
