Divorce…a lost resort, but sometimes necessary. Divorce like an amputation, it’s a tragedy, but sometimes it is the right thing to do. Out attitude to divorce parallels our attitude to the amputation of a limb.”(Moss)Abstract:We propose to explore in this paper some of the representative facts concerning the divorce among the Hebrew population. For each of us, divorce is not a pleasant thing, but despite this fact it is sometimes necessary. We find various differences between the Western nations and the Jewish people concerning the rules of divorce, the balance of power between women and men, the reasons that can lead to divorce or the form of achieving this act of dissolution of marriage. These are just some of the issues that we intend to analyze in this paper.
