The streets of Nahariya ring with the clip-clop of horses pulling Amish-style buggies filled with vacationers. The relaxed seaside resort is the capital of Israel’s western Galilee region, and it’s one of the most picturesque in the country. Palm trees are everywhere and sway in the breeze.
Located north of Akko, Nahariya was conceived in 1934 by Zionist leader Selig Soskin as an agricultural utopia on privately owned land. The town’s early settlers were middle-class Jews fleeing Nazi Germany, and the community prospered. Today, the city is a center of tourism and industry, with an active retiree population, and is known for its dairy products and olives.
If a marriage is dissolved in Israel, rabbinical courts must issue a get, or Jewish bill of divorce. But if the husband refuses to grant the divorce, he could face sanctions that include a stay of existence order (preventing him from living in the house), deprivation of his bank accounts, loss of a driver’s license and being denied appointments to public positions. Thirty-six verdicts were delivered last year against divorce recalcitrants, down from 44 in 2009, but the trend is downward.
