(JTA) — A New York judge has ordered a divorcing Orthodox Jewish couple to split their home with a dividing wall as the proceedings continue.
Superior Court Judge Eric Prus on Thursday ordered Pinchas and Nechama Gold to divide their house in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn in half while they go through their divorce, the New York Post reported.
The couple, who have been married for 21 years and have five children, have two weeks to decide where to place the wall in the 3,000-square-foot home.
The ruling came after Nechama Gold sought to become the sole occupant of the house with the children.
