The two Lev Tahor children who were abducted from their mother a few weeks ago have been successfully recovered in Mexico and are in the custody of child services.
Fourteen-year-old Yante Teller and her 12-year old brother Chaim Teller are in good condition after being taken in a car on Shabbos by members of the Lev Tahor cult. The FBI, Interpol, the US State Department and Mexican Police were all involved in the children’s rescue. The two are expected to be reunited with their mother in the United States some time next week.
Aron Rosner of Williamsburg remains in custody in New York for allegedly orchestrating the kidnapping. Five other members of the group have been taken into custody in Mexico where prosecutors are working on their extradition to United States.
According to an indictment unsealed earlier this week, Rosner kidnapped the children from their family in Woodridge, NY, and disguised them before taking them to an airport Pennsylvania where they boarded a flight to Mexico.
