Father Gets Sympathy
For Child Abduction

Toronto (JTA) — A Toronto
district judge has indicated
sympathy for a Canadian
Orthodox Jew who fled to
Israel with his toddler son in
1987, after discovering that
the child's mother who had
legal custody was a member
of Jews for Jesus.
Judge David Humphrey
ruled that while the defen-
dant, Meir Avitan, was
"clearly guilty of abducting
the child," he would acquit
him of breaching a court
order which forbade him to
remove the child.
Avitan, who pleaded not
guilty to the abduction
charge, said he discovered
late in 1986 that his former
wife was taking the then 7-
month- old boy, Daniel
Michael, to Christian ser-
vices.
Avitan and his wife, Ken-
dra, were married in 1986
and separated four months
after the birth of their son.
According to Avitan, his
wife promised in writing to
raise the child in the Jewish
faith and feed him only
kosher food. But she violated
the separation agreement,
he contends.
In March 1987, he took
Daniel to Israel despite a
court order.
Kendra Avitan does not

feel she breached their
agreement. She said she
converted to Judaism and is
still a Jew and a member of
Jews for Jesus.
She followed her former
husband to Israel, where the
courts ruled that the child
should be returned to his
mother. In April 1987, she
flew back to Canada with
the boy.
But Judge Humphrey said
there was no proof that
Avitan knew of the court
order until he was in Israel
with the child.

Canada Begins
I st Nazi Trial

Toronto (JTA) — The first
Canadian trial of a
suspected Nazi war criminal
opened in Ontario Supreme
Court on Nov. 22.
The defendant,
Hungarian-born Imre Finta,
77, has been indicted on four
charges of crimes against
humanity and four counts of
war crimes for confinement,
kidnaping, robbery and
man-slaughter.
The trial is the first held
under a 2-year-old amend-
ment to the Criminal Code,
which gives Canadian courts
jurisdiction in crimes com-
mitted on foreign soil.
