    Interesting blog piece by Lisa R. Cohen on the "Women in Crime Ink" site about the Jewish aspects of the Patz case.
    From 2009:
    ---
    Etan's uncle was a renowned rabbi who headed up a large suburban N.J. congregation. Early in the case, authorities learned Rabbi Patz took dozens of children on an annual summer trip to an Israeli kibbutz. The rumors ran wild - a family rift over religious differences? Maybe Uncle Norman had spirited Etan to Israel to bring him up more devoutly?

    It was a ridiculous notion, not the least because Uncle Norman was a reform rabbi. But the Israel angle resurfaced repeatedly, after a mysterious photograph of Etan, taken by Stan Patz himself, surfaced in an Israeli magazine a few years after the boy disappeared. An even more bizarre twist? The picture's caption read "Etan Ben Haim" (Etan, Son of Life). No one could ever figure out how or why that photo appeared.

    In many of the things I've read which mention her, Etan's sister has been described as sensitive and enigmatic; pity the lead agent in the case chose the approach he did in interviewing her:
    ---
    Etan’s sister, Shira, however, “shut down” under the agent’s direct interview style, the official familiar with the investigation said. The F.B.I. considers her potentially an important witness because they believe that if Etan ever offered any hint of inappropriate advances by Mr. Ramos or other adults in the days preceding his disappearance, Shira might know.

    Though the article's already been posted on Thread #1, it's certainly worth a read-through if one hasn't already:

    I find all this very strange that this latest tip should cause all these policemen and FBI to turn out to a place to search that they found nothing.

    I don't feel like I can comment on this too much, because I was only tiny when it happened and have only come to my judgement after reading from the posts and links to articles on here.

    Why would you do this search in the public eye - this is something that could well have been done on the quiet - police in plain clothing - building vans etc. To me just seems very strange and to put these poor parents through this in the public spotlight again.

    Thank you for this statement, and for reinforcing the stability and appropriateness of this website and board. This is one more reason why I continue to post here. And thus it should be, families should always be considered victims until stated above otherwise.

    I have followed this case for years. The Patzes have been through more than any family ever needs to endure. They are victims more than any of us will ever know.

    I couldn't read that article without getting tears in my eyes.

    I think so often the siblings of missing/murdered children are forgotten when we look at these cases. At least I know sometimes I don't even stop to contemplate the full impact of the catastrophic pain they must endure.

    Overnight, their life as they know it is changed forever. We see adults that can barely manage to deal with that but I can't imagine being a child and going through that---it makes me so sad for them both.

    Bless them both.

    I'd like to know more about the Israeli magazine that carried the picture of Etan. Does anyone know the name of it? Did it accompany a story?

    In 1981 a New Yorker visiting Jerusalem was taken aback to see a photo of Etan in a Romanian-magazine called called Revista Mea that she happened to pick up while having her hair done at Dolly's Hair Salon in Jerusalem. Even more remarkable the photo, found in a regular "family photo album" feature, bore the name Etan Ben-Haim, which in Hebrew means "son of life." The picture purported to be from Kiryat Bialik, a small working-class city near Haifa.
    from Lisa R. Cohen's book "After Etan: The Missing Child Case That Held America Captive."

    I am not sure if this article has already been posted, but, obviously I felt it relevant to post again.

    Poor man.

    I remember this happening when I was a teenager, for years I carried a picture of Etan in my Bible hoping he would be found. The anguish of the parents at that time was very real.

    I am not familiar with that news source.
