A Belgian Family
Is Reunited

Brussels (JTA) — A Belgian
woman has been reunited
with her three children,
whom she had not seen since
they were kidnapped in 1986
by their father, an Israeli
who became fervently Or-
"I am very happy and I
want to use this occasion to
tell parents who are sear-
ching for their children, they
must never give up,"
Patricia Heymans said upon
her return to Brussels from
New York.
Her children, Marina, 13,
Simon, 12, and Moriah, 10,
had been living with a
Chasidic family near New
Ms. Heymans' case has
drawn repeated attention in
the Belgian press. The chil-
dren's father, Chaim
Yarden, from whom Ms.
Heymans was divorced, was
extradited to Belgium from
the United States on charges
of having kidnapped the
three children at their
Brussels school.
Mr. Yarden and Ms.
Heymans met in Israel in
1979. They got married and
had three children. But the
couple broke up and Patricia
Heymans, a Belgian
Catholic, left her husband
and returned with her three
children to Belgium.
A Brussels court decided to
give the mother custody of
the children. But Mr.
Yarden, who had become
fervently Orthodox, kid-
napped the children in
December 1986.
The kids were apparently
taken to New York, where
they lived with Chasidic
Mr. Yarden, despite re-
peated prison sentences from
a Brussels court, steadfastly
refused to say where the
children lived.
In the meantime, Ms.
Heymans, who made several
trips to New York to try to
find her children, founded
the "Missing Children
Belgium" organization to
help recover children who
were kidnapped by one of
their parents.
The FBI in the United
States and the Belgian
police cooperated in a long
investigation to find Ms.
Heymans' children.
On May 6, she got a phone
call from the FBI in New
York, telling her that the
three children had been
found with a Chasidic family

near the city.
Two days later, the three
children and their mother
were reunited in their
Brussels home.
"They have been well
treated in New York," Ms.
Heymans told Belgian
newspapers. "They don't
speak French anymore after
all these years. They speak
only Yiddish and Engish,"
she said.
"They became Chasidic,
but I will respect their
wishes. If on Saturday, I
want to get the light on, I
will do it. If they don't want
to do certain things, they
don't have to," she added.
"We must now try to find a
common lifestyle," she con-
Mr. Yarden is still in a
Belgian prison. Now that the
children are back with their
mother, he is likely to be ex-
pelled from Belgium after
his current two-year prison
term ends.

Likud's Milo
Runs For Mayor

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Likud
Knesset Member Ronni
Milo, the former police min-
ister, has announced he is
running for mayor of Tel
Aviv as an independent can-
The only other contender
to announce his candidacy is
the Labor Party's Avigdor
Kahalani, a hawkish
Knesset member and na-
tional war hero.
Mr. Milo, a Tel Aviv resi-
dent, stressed he would not
be running as a candidate of
the Likud party, which de-
nounced his announcement.
Mr. Milo claimed that
Likud party chairman Ben-
jamin Netanyahu supported
his candidacy, but local par-
ty officials denied it.
The incumbent mayor,
Shlomo Lahat, is a Likud-
nik, but he has announced
his intention to retire from
political life.
With Mr. Milo's indepen-
dent bid and the rejection of
an earlier proposal to back
Kahalani as a joint Labor-
Likud candidate, the Likud
remains without a mayoral
Mr. Milo told a news con-
ference that public figures
from all sides of the political
spectrum would appear on
his list as candidates for
spots on the City Council.
