  1. The boy is 17 now and, according to international law, is old enough to choose which parent he lives with. Let’s all daven that he makes the right choice.

    • Actually, according to other news outlets, the boy appeared at the police station, as agreed, but said that he’s not interested in being with his biological father. Since he’s now 17 years old, the police were legally unable to force him to go back to the father.

  2. She was fortunately zochah to raise him during these important years as a frum yid; it doesn’t always work out like that. He’s got a good chance now.
