He was put in the temporary custody of his father's friend, Steve Zackheim – a convicted criminal.
And now it seems the man who financed Isaac's Hersh's rescue has himself been arrested. Joseph…
…Shereshevsky was arrested along with his former business partner Steven Beyers. Both are Orthodox Jews. Both allegedly ran a $100 million ponzi scheme called WexTrust Capital LLC which defrauded, among others – Orthodox Jews.
And what happened to Isaac?
The Brooklyn (where else?) family court judge that put him in the temporary custody of a criminal was supposed to decide on Isaac's long term status in May.
I've heard nothing about this since early April. Have you?
UPDATE: It turns out Joseph Shereshevsky is already a convicted felon. He pleaded guilty in 2003 to bank fraud.
But haredim and even Modern Orthodox Jews often don't view white collar crime committed against non-Orthodox or non-Jews as a big deal. So they continued to trust Shereshevsky, who bilked them out of tens of millions of dollars.
