New York: The Israeli widow of a Brooklyn
rabbi, who was killed during the deadly 2008 Mumbai attacks,
has been granted a `Green Card` to live in the US with her
eight children.

37-year-old Frumet Teitelbaum, an Israeli citizen who
was stopped by officials in March after she landing at Kennedy
Airport because of overusing her visitor`s visa, was granted a
green card last week.

She was then given two weeks to stay in the country.
Her attorney, Michael Wildes, applied for a green card
under a post-9/11 law that gives families of terror victims
the right to a green card and permanent residency, according
to the New York Post.

"My client is elated that she has the right to
permanently reside in America, and she has the right to raise
her eight American-born children," Wildes said.

Rabbi Leibish Teitelbaum died after LeT terrorists
attacked the Chabad-Lubavitch movement`s center in Mumbaiin
2008.

Before moving to Mumbai in 2008 as an inspector of
kosher food, the Rabbi was living with his wife in Jerusalem.
