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.

This weekend the police arrested Eli Buhbut, 20, of Netanya, after he attacked a doctor at Laniado hospital. Local Magistrate’s Court Judge Hadas Ovadia denied the police request to retain Buhbut under arrest until proceedings are complete. She permitted the police to delay Buhbut’s release by one day, in order to file an appeal to the Petach Tikva District Court. However, instead of filing an appeal, the police filed charges with the Petach Tikva Court, and the hearing was held before Justice Ovadia.
