Abstract

The aim of this paper is twofold. Firstly, to provide a short analysis of the role of religion in family law in Israel. Secondly, to briefly present a few aspects of Jewish family law. Throughout, I will examine the Israeli experience in an attempt to draw possible lessons regarding the role religion might play in family law, as well as to consider the way a legal system can perhaps handle the tensions between liberalism and religiosity.

Keywords: Family law & Religion, Israeli family law
