Twice refused to grant a divorce to his wife - the court threatened him with a public boycott Israel today


A case of once in 70 years • In the first marriage the wife asked for a divorce, but the husband refused until he was forced to agree • Years later she remarried him - and the nightmare repeated itself

A husband was declared a divorce refuser for the same woman for the second time, and was again forced to grant her a divorce, threatening public shaming if he did not do so.

According to the rabbinical claimant Rabbi Elad Amsalem, who represented the woman, this is the first time such an event has happened in the last 70 years.

The woman, a resident of the south, married about 30 years ago a man who suffers from mental problems without her knowing about it, and the two had five children together.

After 15 years of marriage, when she asked for a divorce, he refused to give her the long-awaited divorce for years and was declared a divorce refuser.

The regional rabbinical court in Tel Aviv forced the refuser to divorce, and that's how the story ended. Four years after getting the divorce, the woman fell ill with cancer, and fell into debt of NIS 300,000.

Following consultation with a rabbi, the woman remarried the man from whom she had divorced, but within a few weeks she realized that she had made a bitter mistake - but it was already too late: she became pregnant, and they had another child together.

Six months after the birth of the son, the woman asked for a divorce again, but her husband refused.

For three and a half years he did not agree to give her a divorce, and asked for peace in the house - even though they did not live together in the same apartment at all.

Severe sanctions against the husband

This is only the second case in the history of the State of Israel where a man refuses to grant a divorce to the same woman for the second time - the previous case happened 70 years ago. The woman claimed in court that she suffered from the husband over the years.

According to her, she suffered, among other things, from financial, verbal and sexual violence.

He used to throw objects at her, wake her up at night and beat the members of the house.

The woman's attorney, the rabbinical claimant Rabbi Elad Amsalem,

According to her, he had relations with her by force, and she had to satisfy his wishes so that the neighbors would not hear and so that the children would not wake up.

It is also claimed that as a result of his violence towards her she had an unwanted abortion.

He used to lock her in the house, sometimes for entire Saturdays, and made sure there was no phone in the house.

It was also alleged that he used to leave his brother, who was addicted to drugs, at home, and that she feared for her life and the lives of her children.

The man, for his part, denied all the allegations, saying that he did not act violently and did not demand anything by force. According to the woman, after her husband suffered a stroke, she came across documents that testified that he suffered from mental problems before she knew him.

"I made a mistake when I returned to him - and I paid," she said in court.

Last month, the court ruled that the man must grant her another divorce, and that if he does not do so - he will be subject to confiscations and restrictions at the request of the woman's attorney, Rabbi Rabbi Elad Amsalem.

Among the sanctions - publication of his name and picture in public, refraining from talking to him and prohibition of opening a bank account, issuing a passport, issuing a driver's license, sitting in the synagogue and more.

The husband realized that he had no choice - and agreed, for the second time, to give his wife a divorce.
