Finally, a good news from Israel. Better yet, rabbis are behind it – haredi rabbis.…
Israel's Supreme Rabbinical Court has ordered a husband who has refused to pay alimony or to give his wife a get (religious divorce) to serve 1 year in prison.
The man, who was on the run from the law for several years, had been hiding in a Jerusalem yeshiva.
If he still does not give a get, he will serve an additional four years in jail – in isolation.
Even better than that, the man will be serving his time in the regular prison population, not in the 'yeshiva prison' system.
