You Are Needed Once Again

Get ready to have steam coming out of your ears over this injustice. Naomi Ragen tells Rachel's story, and it's beyond words to tell you how upset this makes me. Rachel needs our help. Please help spread the word.

How absolutely tragic.
"The Rabbinical Court issued a ruling that her ex should
bring the children to see her. That was six years ago.
She's still waiting. "
Is the Rabbinical Court the only alternative in Israel (in cases like this)?

I wish I knew more, felis. But I figure Naomi is pretty darn knowledgable or would have found someone who was... if they couldn't figure it out... I'm not sure what could be left to do. :(

This is so sad. I admire Naomi Ragen for trying to help her and for admonishing and reminding him about the Day of Atonement.

A travesty--doesn't qualify as any type of justice.

This is such an outrage it almost leaves me speechless. The interesting thing, though, is that the Israeli Supreme Court is considered to be one of the most liberal. In fact, Alan Dershowitz described it as being, arguably, the best in the world...even better than ours. Having said that, the Israelis have got to do something about the existing laws where marriage and divorce are under the jurisdiction of the rabbinate with their medieval ideas of justice. This sort of horrific situation should never have been allowed to happen.

"Well, isn't that brilliant? The father gets away with
brainwashing them, kidnapping them, ignoring court orders."

Esther, if I wasn't reading this from such a credible source I would not be able to believe that this was actually happening. I can scarcely type I am so enraged.

Thanks you guys! I knew you'd be as outraged as I am. Just makes my blood boil!
