Randall Greene, the head of the Bella Collina POA and an employee of Dwight Schar, conducted himself in an anti-Semitic fashion towards the Juravin family, who are descendents from Holocaust survivors.
A letter was written to the Anti-Defamation League that started, “We are writing to you to request assistance to stop the rampant anti-Semitism that is occuring in the community of Bella Collina, a neighborhood in central Florida that is run by DCS Capital Investments, a company owned by former RNC Finance Chairman Dwight Schar.”
INTIMIDATION AND ANTI-SEMITIC HARASSMENT
Don Juravin did not know that Dwight Schar was anti-Semitic. Mr. Juravin believed that Schar was a philanthropist, a good man, and good businessman, which convinced him to buy a house in the community. After he purchased the house, Mr. Juravin had to pay $40,000 in initial fees to belong to the Club, a venue owned by Schar in Bella Collina. There was a monthly fee, $420, also associated with the Club that had to be paid.
Later, after he wrote a bad review, Randall Greene, the head of the POA, drove by Mr. Juravin’s house several times and honked his horn loudly. Twice, Greene drove by Mr. Juravin, who was out walking, and yelled a vile anti-Semitic slur at Mr. Juravin. A few weeks later, the Juravins received a letter stating that they would be banned from the Bella Collina Club as “dangerous people.” Mr. Juravin did not know what to do, so he kept paying the monthly fee. He did not make the connection that it was because he was Jewish.
No one said anything to Mr. Juravin, until he decided to stop paying the monthly fee. A few months later, the POA placed a lien on Mr. Juravin’s house for not paying the fee, even though he was banned.
Mr. Juravin was forced to undergo a background check, which he feels is unnecessary because the man that runs the Club and the man that runs the POA both have arrests and in one case, criminal charges to their name. In addition, anyone seems to be able to use the Club without a background check.
The Club continued to cause grief. Mrs. Juravin was found crying one day because she had learned that her two daughters were about to graduate from school, but could not attend their own graduation ceremony because the family was banned from the Club. The two girls snuck in with a family friend, a Christian doctor, and were subsequently thrown out of the Club. The family of the doctor were sent a ban notice as well.
ADL INVESTIGATES DWIGHT SCHAR AND RANDALL GREENE
In an affidavit signed by a former business partner of Dwight Schar’s, the former business partner revealed to Anna Juravin that Dwight Schar had engaged in anti-Semitic behavior, with vile comments.
He wrote, “On several occasions during staff and management meetings, that included me, [CPA] Paul Simonson, [POA president] Randall Greene and others, Dwight Schar made derogatory comments about Jews, making derogatory remarks about their mannerisms and their way of life, and I was surprised Simonson laughed it off, being Jewish himself, just to not make waves with his boss, Dwight Schar. I was very offended by such comments.”
The ADL has responded to the Juravin family’s complaints and informed them that they were investigating the case.
Dwight Schar, an NFL owner with a share in the Washington Football Team, has engaged in flagrant breaches of conduct in his capacity as a minority owner in the NFL. He and his employees have harassed, intimidated, and threatened a mother and her three small children.
