The Rabbinical Court of Tel-Aviv, in discussing a divorce case, pressured the wife to cancel the rape complaint her sister filed with the Police against her husband. Said husband is a close relative of Rabbi Dov Domb, an important rabbinical judge of the Tel-Aviv Rabbinical Court.

Four verdicts handed out during the past year at Regional Rabbinical Courts determine that the jurisdiction of Dayyanim (Rabbinate Judges) on the issue of couples who married abroad and are seeking to divorce, does not stop at the technicality of undoing the relationship nor at issuing a “get le-humra”. In a ruling given at the Netanya Rabbinical Court, for instance, it was determined that it is possible for the court to rule according to the Halacha in cases of providing a get document for civil marriages — a direct contradiction to a ruling of the SCJ, according to which all matters relating to a civil marriage should be determined only in civil courts.
