Tel Aviv Court Bars Departure of Nehama Lifschitz at Husband’s Request

Download PDF for this date

A rabbinical court here issued yesterday a temporary injunction barring Jewish folk singer Nehama Lifschitz, who recently came to Israel from Russia, from leaving Israel. The injunction was sought by her husband, Haim Binstein, who claimed that his wife planned to desert him now that she has become famous. Miss Lifschitz claimed in court that her marriage to her much younger husband was fictitious in that she married to save him and his family from the Nazis after the invasion of Lithuania in 1940. She was scheduled to perform in New York next month. The hearing will resume Sunday.
