NY Rabbi Battles for Custody from Officials

NY Rabbi Battles for Custody from Officials

(KIRYAS JOEL, NY)—Padwa Chipas Znis through a member of its group, Rabbi Jacob Teitelbaum of Kiryas Joel, NY has recently filed a complaint with the United States District Court—Southern District of New York—against a handful of defendants and co-defendants following false allegations and claims of child neglect.
The result of these false claims led to the removal of Rabbi Teitelbaum’s children from his residence where he lives with his wife. The defendants have gone as far as offering to Rabbi Teitelbaum’s wife to return the children to her if she agrees to separate from Rabbi Teitelbaum.  Having dealing with these ongoing issues for nearly two years, Teitelbaum is emotionally and mentally drained, and is hoping to get some support for his fight.
This all began almost two years ago when Rabbi Teitelbaum and a friend got involved in a religious campaign against forced divorces that were taking place in the community through the use of illegal kidnapping.
“The cause of the harassment and intimidation we received was based on religious disagreements we had within our community,” said Padwa Chipas Znis.  “Those individuals with whom we filed the complaint against weren’t merely satisfied with having Rabbi Teitelbaum’s children taken away, but have continued to harass him an attempt to separate him from his wife and evict him from his wife in an effort to stop our campaign.”
 “English is not Rabbi Teitelbaum’s native language, and he doesn’t have the finances to hire a big time lawyer to help make this right,” said Padwa Chipas Znis.  “His children and family are his life, and it has been an emotional hell dealing with this for almost two years.  All he wants is to get his family and his life back in order.”
For information on how you can get involved in taking action in helping Rabbi Teitelbaum to get relief through this case, email  HYPERLINK ""  Below you will find a copy of the complaint.


  1. After reading this I am appalled! That a group of people and the government should interfere with a family to achieve their own ends and attempt to destroy not only that family but the lives of the parents is something that should never be allowed to happen. People need to be aware that these types of things go on right here in New York, and in a religious community at that!

  2. Harassment campaigns are happening all across this nation...The Constitutional Republic of America is gone. It's been hijacked. War on terror? no... war on you.

  3. Get all the facts. This is a corrupt man from boro park that has been denied his wife a divorce he owns numerous sweat shops here and abroad.

  4. This guy is a bag of squirrels! His wife's family have been trying to get her to leave him because they fear for the kids. After one kid is taken to the hospital, the doctors call Social Services who quickly bring in Child Protective Services. They immediatlely remove both kids and charge the parents with abuse. Charges against her are dropped but not him. After several public incidents that end w/ him being held for psychiatric observation, he's given a cour-appointed lawyer who accepts a plea deal on his behalf, where he loses custody of the kids. During all this the wife leaves him a few times but then returns (classic battered wife). The court tells her that as long as she stays w/ him, she won't get the kids back and will eventually lose her parental rights as well. The guy decides to go off his meds, fires his attorney, and represents himself. He loses. No one, not his wife, the rest of their family, the kids, the cops, the courts, the doctors, the social workers want to see the kids back in his care. Not even the kids! According to him, they're all in a conspiracy against him. Bag 'o squirrels!
