Is a Child's Identity and Culture Meaningless? - Dulberg Case Information Center

Contact List

The OU/IPA has been carefully following a custodial case in Genoa, Italy whose progress has given us much cause for concern.   This custodial case, between a divorced Israeli father who has converted to Catholicism and an Israeli mother who is a ba’alat teshuva, has caused alarm in the worldwide Orthodox community due to the malicious characterization of Orthodox Judaism as a fanatical cult.  We are asking our member synagogues and supporters to write letters to the Italian authorities protesting the injustice with which this case has been handled.  Below is a link to a sample letter which you may use or choose to adapt and a list of names and addresses to whom your letter should be directed.

When emailing, we ask that you please BCC (send a copy of your email to) webmaster@ou.org so that we can accumulate as large a number of correspondence as possible to present to the Italian court and the Italian government.
