A New Jersey court convicted three Rabbis of conspiracy to commit kidnap, and two of the three were also convicted of attempted kidnapping.
Under Jewish law, for a divorce to be official, a husband must give his wife a divorce document called a “Get”. Without a Get, the woman is considered married under Jewish law and unable to remarry.
The three conspired to kidnap and beat Get-withholding husbands who refused to grant their spouses a Jewish divorce.
They Get-ring was uncovered by an undercover FBI agent posing as an Orthodox wife whose husband refused to grant her a Get.
