Slice of Life
In Israel

CARL ALPERT

SPECIAL TO THE JEWISH NEWS

Israel's courts of justice are still
a wonderful source of stories and
information, casting light on sur-
prising aspects of life in Israel.
Here justice is not only done, but
is also seen to have been done.
It's all a matter of Tastes.
Aharon Moyal, serving seven
years in jail for various criminal
offenses, petitioned the District
Court in Tel Aviv to instruct the
prison authorities to provide
onion and garlic with his meals.
He maintained the food was not
tasty enough. Judge Aryeh Even-
Ari ruled that the jailers should
enable Mr. Moyal to purchase
onion and garlic in the prison can-
teen, failing which they must pro-
vide him with these items with
his meals.
Belated Wedding Present.
The bride and groom, Nurit and
Eli Tafiro, and the 400 guests at
their wedding ceremony were left
standing there when the officiat-
ing rabbi failed to show up as
promised. For the pain and suf-
fering caused, Judge Eliezer Fich-
man of the Haifa Magistrates'
Court, ordered Rabbi Elihu Mai-
mon of Kiryat Ata to pay the cou-
ple damages of 40,000 shekels.
The ruling came 3M years after
the wedding.
A Fishy Story. "I was only
standing by the fish pond," main-
tained Rafi Ben-Hamo of Beth
Shean in his 30,000 shekel suit
against Kibbutz Geva. He
claimed that a large fish leaped
out of the pool, bit him in his left
leg, and left him with permanent
injuries. The kibbutz defense:
The charge sounds illogical and
should be dismissed. The judge:
His verdict not available.
It's a Basic Woman's Right
to Fix Her Age. Ella Cantor, of
Haifa, an immigrant from
Moscow, maintained that her
Russian documents mistakenly
listed her as 57, when she was in
fact only 37. She brought two
witnesses who knew her. Both
the Magistrates' Court and the
Higher District Court to which
the government appealed, ruled
in her favor, noting that the usu-
al requests are to have a higher
age certified, so the applicant can
qualify sooner for a National In-
surance pension.
Unidentifiable. Eitan. Bar of
Jerusalem and his wife, Tami,
sued in Beershba District Court
demanding that the word "Jew"
be deleted from their identity pa-
pers, as indication of their reli-
gion or nationality. They claimed
that they observed nothing and
believed in nothing and did not
want to be labeled in any way
which could lead to discrimina-
tion against them. Judge Yadin
Timor ruled in their favor.
