Precedent Setting Ruling
on 'Get' Still Unsettled

Weinberger, Sharon, Arens Get Along'

TEL AVIV (JTA) —
United States Secretary of
Defense Caspar Weinberger
says he has got along well
with both former Defense
Minister Ariel Sharon and
the new Defense Minister,
Moshe Arens.
In an interview with Is-
rael Radio's Washington
correspondent, Weinberger
was most diplomatic but
hinted there would be no
change in American policy
as a result of the changes at
the Israel Defense Ministry.
Denying reports that
there had been friction be-
tween him and Sharon, the
Defense Secretary said he
had got on well with Sha-
ron, been well received at
his Negev ranch and had
given a warm welcome to
Sharon in Washington.

NEW YORK (JTA) — A
precedent-setting ruling by
New York State's highest
court, that a pre-nupital
agreement between a
civilly-divorced Jewish
couple to submit differences
over their religious obliga-
tions to a rabbinical tri-
bunal is enforceable in civil
courts, may have to go back
to a lower state court to be
implemented, a Jewish
legal rights agency official
said.
Howard Zuckerman,
president of the National
Jewish Commission on Law
and Public Affairs
(COLPA), which filed a
friend of the court brief in
the case, said the wife, as
plaintiff, will probably have
to apply to a lower state
court for an order compel-
ling her husband to grant
her a Jewish divorce, a
"get."
The Court of Appeals, the
state's highest court, ruled
4-3 in Albany last week that
the pre-nuptial agreement
in the Jewish wedding cer-
tificate, the ketuba, of
Susan Avitzur and her
former husband, Boaz, is
enforceable in civil court.

Mrs. Avitzur filed the
suit initially in the Sup-
reme Court of Albany
County following the
couple's civil divorce in
May 1978.
Zuckerman said that the
4-3 Court of Appeals ruling
was the first on that issue by
the highest court of any of
the 50 states.
Dennis Rapps, COLPA
executive director, said that
if Boaz Avitzur accepts the
high court's order to appear
before a Beth Din (Rabbini-
cal Court) with his civilly-
divorced wife, which Rapps
said was unlikely, the order
of implementation would be
met.
However, he added, a
number of issues stemming
from the high court's ruling
remain to be resolved.

other ways than by helping
Israel build its Lavie fighter
"which contributes little to
Israel's air power, consider-
ing the planes it already
possesses." He said America
has, and should have, a
strong alliance with Israel.
"We are both very helpful to
each other, and should be.
"America needs several
friends in the Middle East,
and I think Israel needs
several friends in the Mid-
dle East, so that we should
broaden these relationships
and alliances, he said.
"Weinberger indicated
that he would like to
maintain telephone con-
tact with Arens to avoid
misunderstandings.
On Monday, Arens called
Weinberger from
Jerusalem to deny press re-
ports claiming that Arens
had told the Cabinet Sun-
day that Weinberger was

hostile to Israel.
The press reports claimed
Arens attributed Wein-
berger's anti-Israel atti-
tudes to his previous busi-
ness ties with Arab coun-
tries while Weinberger was
associated with Bechtel
Corp.
Weinberger told the NBC
"Today" program that he
would be surprised if the
statement had been made

by Arens, based on their
past relationship.
The press reports also
claimed that Arens told the
Cabinet that U.S. Secretary
of State George Shultz, also
formerly associated with
Bechtel, had now come to
see that the Middle East
situation is not as cut and
dried as some Administra-
tion circles may have
thought.
