Ex-Hasidic mother from Brooklyn who lost custody of her three children for being gay wins them back in first-of-its-kind legal battle. Chavie Weisberger, who used to be Hasidic, was granted custody of her children after a long legal battle over her sexuality. In 2015 she lost custody because her ex-husband said that she wasn’t fulfilling a religious upbringing clause in their divorce. They were divorced in 2009 after she told him she was attracted to women. Now she has full custody of the three kids again after a years-long legal battle.
