Rabbinical court jails father for supporting son’s divorce refusal

In what has been hailed as a groundbreaking ruling, the Tel Aviv Rabbinical Court on Sunday sentenced a wealthy haredi businessman to 30 days in prison for supporting his son’s refusal to grant his wife a “get,” a Jewish writ of divorce.

According to the Rabbinical Courts Administration, it is the first time a prison term has been issued by a rabbinical court in Israel to someone other than the get refusers themselves.
