CWJ Fighting for Rights of Lesbian Seeking Divorce

The Center for Women's Justice, a Hadassah Foundation grantee in Jerusalem, is reporting that a rabbinic court in Israel is making a women's get (a religious divorce) contingent on the woman, who is attempting to divorce a man, keeping her children away from her female partner.  Civil divorce, like civil marriage, is not an option in Israel.
