Crime figure buried

  By JIM WALSH

Services were held Sunday for Myron "Pep" Levin, a colorful figure who played a role in one of South Jersey's most sensational murder cases.

Levin, who died Friday after an illness, was a key prosecution witness at two trials against Rabbi Fred J. Neulander, a Cherry Hill clergyman accused of ordering his wife's murder on Nov. 1, 1994.

Neulander, whose first trial ended in a mistrial, was convicted at his second trial in November 2002. The once-prominent clergyman, now 65, is serving a life sentence.

Levin, who was a convicted felon, testified at both trials that Neulander sought his help in finding a hitman several months before the murder.

Levin said Neulander, who was his racquetball partner, threw his racquet to the floor in the summer of 1994 and said, "I wish I could get rid of my goddamn wife. I would have her killed on the ground one day when I get home."

Levin, who said he did not help Neulander, disclosed the conversation to investigators in 1997. That was after he learned from a prosecutor's investigator that Neulander may have cheated him in the purchase of a Torah as a memorial gift for the rabbi's Cherry Hill synagogue, M'kor Shalom, in January 1994.

In a complaint filed in Cherry Hill municipal court in December 1998, Levin, a township resident, said Neulander claimed the scroll was worth $20,000, but its actual value was about $3,000.

Levin, a self-described entrepreneur who was sometimes called the "King of Silver," served time in prison during the 1980s after several convictions. Among other offenses, authorities said he melted down coins, peddled food stamps and plotted an arson in Baltimore in which one of the suspects was accidentally killed.

Two men who admitted to fatally beating Carol Neulander in her Cherry Hill home, Len Jenoff and Paul Daniels, also are serving prison sentences.
