Female MKs oppose rabbinical ruling requiring women pay child support


OPPOSES: MK Zehava Galon: “The decision will harm women and could be used by men as a bargaining chip against them.”
SUPPORTS: Rabbi Eliyahu Heishrik of the Chief Rabbinate: “We need to also consider the situation in which the man makes less money than the woman.”

By Gideon Allon


Female MKs from the opposition and coalition alike expressed outrage on Wednesday following a decision by the Chief Rabbinate to require some women to pay child support when couple divorce. Until now, only men have been required to pay child support.
