Ontario authorities remove 2 children from Lev Tahor
Local authorities have removed two toddlers from the controversial ultra-Orthodox Jewish community Lev Tahor which recently relocated from Quebec to the Chatham-Kent area, ahead of a bid by Quebec officials to place 14 other children into foster care.That's always their defense, that youngsters from purportedly Haredi families must be put in the custody of the same. No, I think being in non-Haredi custody is just as good - even better - than being in the clutches of such an awful cult.
The two youngsters who were taken by Chatham-Kent Children’s Services are a brother and sister, and were removed last Thursday, community member Uriel Goldman said in an interview. [...]
It is unclear who is caring for the two siblings. Mr. Knowles said it is unlikely there are Hassidic families in the Chatham area that could provide a Jewish orthodox foster environment for the toddlers, a brother and sister.
This is a good step taken, but the other 14 children still need to be removed from that awful cult as well.
Update: unfortunately, it appears they've been returned to the parents. Though there were conditions given for receiving the children back.
