Slippery Slope

Notes From a Crumbling Democracy

Closed Society: 25 March, 2011

Politicos in the ultra-Orthodox settlement city of Modi’in Ilit married off a 13 year-old girl this week, as a “correction” for starting to see a 16 year-old. The marriage took place in opposition to a court order forbidding the parents from marrying off their daughter, and against the protest of the city’s rabbis.
