Jewish Divorce - GETT - Only in (North) America?
ewish Divorce - GETT
(I am surprised there isnít a separate forum for this!)
I was married twice: Once at a civil service. Once in a Shule. The first divorce (civil) had flaws, and now we both have different lawyers to try the divorce again.
I called the Shule that married us. To ask about a GETT.
The secretary said ĒAs we are not members of the shuleÖĒ and politely said Ēdonít bother usĒ. WOW.
Iíd like to ensure that my Former Wife understands that she is committing adultry without a religous GETT. And that I may not sign a GETT without approval.
Funny about having to be a member.
In 1950, my Dad tried to go to Shule during the High Holy Days. He was turned away because he did not have a ticket - he as not a member of the Shule. He was very angry and said loudly: ĒI was in a concentration camp for 4 1/2 years. The Naziís didnít ask for membership - but YOU are asking me????Ē
Being Jewish in North America, is a very strange and sickening thing.
