Fathers Rights Organizations Protest Judge Rivka Mekayes
For Alienating Children
Israel News Agency
Israel --- November 21, 2011 .... A civil protest took place in
Tel Aviv, Israel on November 8, 2011 against Family Court Judge
Rivka Mekayes participation in an Israel bars conference
on the implementation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
Rivka Mekayes is described by many divorced fathers in Israel
as being perhaps the most notorious, gender biased family Court
Judge in Israel responsible for disengaging fathers from children
and thousands of parental alienation cases, created by herself,
as she believes that womens independence means sole custody
of children with mothers.
was scheduled to speak at the Israel bar on November 8, 2011 on
the childrens rights during divorce.
is too late and too crooked, said the Coalition for
the Children and Family in Israel and Fathers
4 Justice Israel, fighting for fathers and childrens'
rights. It is most ironic for this Judge in Israel to lecture
on Implementing Child Participation in Family Court Proceedings.
A report of
the pilot study was recently published by JDC-Brookdale institute,
an institute dominated by feminist ideation and anti-male hatred.
court judges will speak: Saviona Rotlevi (retired) and Rivka Mekayes.
In practice, the pilot program means that State appointed social
workers should interview the child and asks for the child views
about their own custody preferences, and in some cases, the child
will be interviewed by the Judge, in camera, accompanied by the
social worker. Hearing childrens input in their own custody
is mandated by UN Convention for the Rights of the Child (CRC).
have been implemented abroad, but hardly used in Israel, because
the Tender Years Presumption overrides the preferences of the
program in Israel has obvious problems when a gender biased system
tries to dress up in a reform. There is little new in the project.
The family courts have already made these same social workers
in Israel as intermediaries who represent the voice of the children
in the court, and these social workers are trained to think that
the voice of the child is the same as what the mother wants. So
long as social workers are involved, the voice of the child will
be definitely muted says the Coalition for the Children and Family
in Israel and Fathers 4 Justice Israel.
A review of
the Brookdale Institute pilot program shows that the pilot is
still crooked, corrupt, and bent. The same social workers who
favor the mothers custody will still be intermediaries in
charge of the whole process, rubber stamped by the Judge. Given
childrens psychological attachment (love for and even fear
of) the custodial maternal parent, the influence and presence
of biased social worker, and not least the inferior quality of
family judges, means that there is no reform in the
horizon. It is also too late for our children.
are still falsely accused, alienated, and disconnected from their
children simply because women get automatic, interim custody.
It is too late for children who have limited or no contact with
their banned, disconnected, alienated, falsely accused fathers.
They have lost quality years of contact, learning basic skills
and security from their fathers who have been made absent by the
corrupt biased system. Some children at age 18 open their eyes
and reconnect with their lost alienated parent. Some suffer a
life sentence of disengagement from the targeted parents due to
to the abusive alienating parent, and by the crooked CPS system.
These parental alienation syndrome adults are the biggest victims
of the divorce industry.
rights organizations in Israel, the US, the UK and in several
other democratic nations are demanding real reform of the divorce
and child protection industry.
courts, the Israel Ministry of Social Service social workers,
the allied mental and social services, the child allowance system
and the Debt Courts, need to be replaced by state agents who are
not biased, less corrupt and less damaging. The present structure
of the child custody determination system needs new players. The
speakers in the November 8 panel were lawyers, social workers,
a psychologist and two judges. These are the same tired people
who feed off this divorce and child custody industry, designed
to disengage children from fathers, extract high lawyers
costs, and give social workers a reason for their jobs.
no independent non-professional representatives speaking for the
rights of children, parents and families says the Coalition for
the Children and Family in Israel and Fathers 4 Justice Israel.
Fathers rights activists raised their voice outside the
doors of the Israel Bar.
begin with social workers. Non-custodial, even disconnected, parental
alienation, alienated fathers know the inadequacy and bias of
the child protection court appointed parental evaluation officers.
Any authentic child participation process must remove from the
equation the social workers involvement, because these are
the same social workers who adopt the mothers false accusations
without investigation, without informing the father of the complaints,
without allowing their file to be reviewed by the father. The
courts and clinics adopt the social workers sloppy, careless,
manipulated reports and transform it into judicial truth.
child protection workers promote parental alienation. They allow
the child to solely attach to the mother at the exclusion of the
father. They show a deep bias against fathers.
the same social workers who make legal determinations based on
intuitions, sympathies, ill training, and biased subjective views.
They consistently refuse to check the facts which the fathers
complain about. Empowered to enforce the child protection law,
the so-called competent authorities have the mistaken, one-sided
view that domestic violence and child abuse (including child sexual
abuse) is exclusively perpetrated by fathers, when in fact most
statistics show that mothers are the leading perpetrators of child
abuse. These social workers run supervised visitation contact
centers that disconnect and promote parental alienation.
Their livelihood depends on a constant stream of new fathers and
new children into the contact centers. Such social workers cannot
fairly interview and report the childs custody wishes?
It is ironic
that at the first conference on child participation and CRC implementation
in Israeli family courts, the honor of presenting the issue is
given to the judge with the worst track record on parental alienation,
Judge Rivka Mekayes, who served in Kfar Saba family court, 2001-2011.
acted as a radical feminist inquisitor in a field court. Although
adored by many lawyers, social workers and family clinicians and
expert witnesses whose livelihood she upholds, Judge Mekayes is
infamous among childrens and fathers rights activists.
There is a bitter irony when this judge lectures on the subject
of childrens participation in custodial decisions or on
the subject of false accusations, as she has allowed so little
of the first and promoted so much of the second, says one
of the fathers' rights protesters, Yohanan W., an American residing
in Yohanan Ws experience, Judge Mekayes one-sidedly accepted
three fabricated lawsuits launched the mother, regarding custody,
child support, and domestic violence. The judge one-sidedly adopted
the manipulated complaints of the mother before listening to even
one piece of evidence. This judge issued thousands of restraining
orders for indefinite duration, restraining fathers from seeing
their own children, with a possibility top review only after six
months. This meant that in the first half year the father was
not even allowed to phone his children. When Yohanan called his
daughter on her 9th birthday, it resulted in a call to the police
station, and the threat of jail. This meant no contact with the
school or clinic, much of which has continued for years. Judge
Mekayes also uses security guards to silence fathers from opposing
motions against them.
In the experience
of another hapless father in Mekayes family court room, the court
guards beat-up the father. When his lawyer called for the judges
intervention to stop the guards unwarranted, continued brutality,
this judge reportedly replied, Let him learn.
family judge, who is a champion of fatherless feminism and a great
promoter of parental alienation, reportedly, personally is herself

no contact with her old father who divorced her mother when she
was age 11.

was appointed to judgeship, Rivka Mekayes was a lawyer for the
womens lobby IWN. She helped write feminist legislation such as
