Borough Park – A House Divided

    11

    Brooklyn – A Judge has ordered soon-to-be divorced couple millionaire sweater manufacturer from TechKnits Inc. Simon Taub 57, and his wife Chana Taub 56, to have a wall build smack in the middle of their house on 49th Street in Borough Park, so Simon wouldn’t have to relinquish it to his wife of 18 years.

    Chana Taub has appealed Judge Sara Krauss’ ruling. But if the decision is upheld, they could be walking in the same house, divided in two on both floors.
    According to the Judge, spliting the hous should be the best way to deal with this, to have Simon a way from his wife because an order of protection that was granted on her request, and not to far away from his nearby synagogue, his four kids and his doctor’s office due to a heart condition he has, even though he owns the house next door.

    smart judge, now can we arrange something like this in my local shul

    i only have some simple questions:

    1) can this wall have a window, in case one of them wants to borrow a bottle of milk

    2)who has to pay for putting up the wall

    3)can this wall be portable, so that when our millionaire remarries and make a vach nacht he should be able to rent the other part.

    I asked where i can find the “whole transcript” of the judge’s decision (that is, what the judge himself wrote in his decision), not the article the story came from.

    Finally, a judge making some sense. Why is the judge stupid? Is that because he doesn’t want to throw out the husband from his own house?

    This Judge is on to something. Imagine if he was the judge in the Satmar, Krasneh, Klosenburg or Bobov case

    I think the judge knows its stupid, and is just trying to make a point, that the whole divorce and fight is stupid.
