Welcome to our site - Dror Friends
Hi, my name is Nir Lahav, a loyal Sea Org member and an OT, currently working in Israel as a Hubbard management consultant and an auditor.
I am a member of a group of independent Scientologists, going up Ron Hubbard’s Bridge to Spiritual Freedom at Dror Center, located in Haifa, Israel. Many of us were active at the Church of Scientology, some in the Sea Org like myself, or on staff. We left the Church when we realized it had been taken over by an evil individual and his cohorts. There are many theories and explanations as to what happened in the Church, why and how it was taken over, yet researching this is of secondary importance to us at the moment.
What is vital for us is to keep the good work continuing into the future. We know Ron’s Tech works and produces miracles and must be preserved. Further, we are now the group responsible for maintaining 100% Standard Tech. It is our duty to reach into society, globally, getting the broad population acquainted with the Tech, reading it and enjoying wins from auditing and training.
This website is meant for you, a Scientologist, whether you are in the Church, or have left it or were never in it. The organization known as “The Church of Scientology” is now neither a church nor has anything to do with Scientology or Ron’s intentions. Someone has turned it into a cruel cult, trapping people, misleading them, extorting money from them for self-aggrandizement. Worse, the CofS actually prevents people from attaining freedom by altering the Tech and concealing Ron’s original Bridge.
We chose Dror Center as our home simply because they deliver 100% Standard Tech per LRH. They are friendly, pricing is fair and they provide us with good service. Dror’s personnel have invested huge efforts to master the complete Tech, they deliver the full OT Levels, the L Rundowns and have a thriving Academy where many train to become auditors. The key to long-term expansion is training of new auditors, and this is happening at Dror.
We come to Dror from all over the world. It’s not easy for some, but well-worth the trip. At Dror services are affordable, there’s comfortable accommodations on premises and we believe Ron himself would be proud of the Technical standards.
The Story of Dror Center
Dror Center was founded by Tami and Dani Lemberger in 1992 upon their return to their hometown, Haifa, in Northern Israel. They established Dror with the purpose of making it possible for every individual to fully realize the great potential they hold by precise application of the applied philosophy developed by Ron Hubbard.
Prior to opening Dror Center, Tami and Dani lived six years in the United States, the last two years in Clearwater, Florida where they both went up the Bridge at Flag. By November 1991 they were solo-auditing on Solo NOTs, OT 7, and were highly trained, Tami as Graduate 5 Auditor and Case Supervisor, Dani as Course Sup, Ethics Specialist and Executive.
Dror Center began operating in February 1992 as a Mission under license of the Church of Scientology. It rapidly expanded, delivering auditing up to NED and training on Introductory Courses and the Student Hat. Dror Center sent tens of its public to higher Orgs, won many prizes and awards and became a major FSM for many AO’s and the Tel Aviv Org. Most notable achievement was Tami Lemberger being twice nominated as Top International Field Auditor for the years 2000 and 2002! Dror Center was the largest Mission in the European network many years in a row. By 2012 Dror center numbered six staff and approximately 50 public.
In the year 2010 Dror’s founders took a novel step by turning Dror into an equal partnership of five: Aviv Bershadsky, Moti Weizman, Dima Dubinin, Tami and Dani, each owning 20%.
Around the year 2005, it became apparent that many things were going wrong in the Church of Scientology. All attempts to warn or even communicate about this were met by threats and intimidations. Church management developed a control mechanism, in violation of Ron’s policies, running on the public a “fear of losing one’s Bridge” so as to force “agreement” with management. Its rough outline is: Communication = criticism = security checking = accusation of crimes = labeling as ‘disaffected’ = threat of being declared ‘Suppressive’. This came to a head in June 2012 when all staff of Dror Center were declared ‘Suppressive’ and left the Church with most of their public. Upon leaving they published a letter explaining their move. See: Dror’s letter of July 2012.
Following its departure from the Church, Dror launched an urgent campaign to acquire the full Technology of Ron Hubbard, to guarantee the safe and accurate delivery of the full Bridge and all Rundowns and processes. Dror now delivers all OT Levels and the L Rundowns. Dror puts an emphasis on training, its Academy is bustling with activity, many young individuals learning to become professional auditors.
Recently, Dani Lemberger with the help of Dror staff launched the LifePower project, a new series of books presenting Ron’s magical Tech to the broad public in language and format that is easy to read, grasp, drill and apply. Kindly visit the LifePower site for more data about this vast international initiative.

Dror Center left the church in 2012. Dani explains, “We had to leave following our observation of gross out-tech and illegal activities conducted by church management. Dror has as its purpose to preserve Ron’s Tech and to become a leading organization for delivery of the whole Bridge. Here you can train and we will help you become a professional auditor. You can receive auditing and go up the Bridge to full OT.”
