Good looking foreigners said unfair competition to Jewish wives.
Rabbis urge limit foreign women to protect wives
Rabbis want authorities to reduce the number of female foreign workers entering Israel, as their male employers seem to easily succumb to their charms, said a report today.
The plea follows an appeal lodged at a rabbinical court south of Tel Aviv by a scorned wife whose husband had an affair with a Filipina employee, said the Maariv daily.
“The authorities should apply restrictions to guard the honour of Israel’s daughters,” wrote Rabbi Nahum Gortald, the head of the tribunal.
“It is inconceivable that a man leaves a spouse whose beauty bears the traces of time for a younger foreign employee,” he said.
There is no civil marriage law in Israel, and people of different religions must go abroad to marry.
