Caring for Lev Tahor kids seen as no easy task

Members of the ultra-Orthodox Jewish sect Lev Tahor fled the country this week with 13 children, days before they were to have appealed a judgement ordering them into foster care.

The children, ranging in age from six months to 15 years, were to having appeared in court Wednesday in Chatham-Kent, Ont., to appeal a Feb 3 order validating a Nov. 27 Quebec court ruling that the children be removed from the community and placed in foster care. That ruling was made after most members of the community had already left their Ste-Agathe-des-Monts homes for Chatham-Kent.
