Court publicly ostracizes man who is refusing wife divorce

The Supreme Rabbinical Court has taken the unusual step of publicly ostracizing a man who has refused to give his wife a bill of divorce for years.

Oded Gaz, a doctor of physics and a former lecturer at Bar Ilan University, has refused to grant his wife a divorce for close to four years.

Unlike in many cases of divorce refusal where the recalcitrant partner demands that certain conditions be met, often of a financial nature, before agreeing to the divorce, Gaz has not issued any demands at all and has instead said he wants to reconcile with his now estranged wife.
