I already linked in my previous post, but here it is again:
Beth Din of America
They work similar to Sharia courts, dealing only in civil matters, and costing a lot less than standard civil courts. However one big difference is
that Beth Din courts will deal only with those deemed to be Jewish by Halakha ruling, wherear Sharia courts will happy assist non-Muslims too.
Majority of Sharia rulings relate to divorce and they can help woman to escape mariages that are abusive, forced, or where she doesn't get the moral
support from her husband as is required in Islamic culture, without her being ostracised by her peers and family.
Inside a Sharia Court
On a side note, religions are all messed up. Catholics don't believe in divorce at all. My mum was brought up strict Catholic and divorced after
getting physically abused by her first husband. Even though he was beating her up, her family disowned her and she's now no longer classed as a
Catholic, can't take communion in chapel etc. And physical abuse doesn't even fall into the categories to allow annulment under Cannon Law.
