Children should be seen and heard
Joint custody serves only the parents, not the kids, say retired judge receiving Tel Aviv University honor for children's rights law.
When retired Judge Saviona Rotlevi was about 10 years old and her sister was about nine, they decided to change the family name. "We had a non-Hebrew name we didn't like, Regenstreif," she says. "We changed it to Regev without telling our parents." The two girls informed the school they attended in Ramat Gan of the change and since then that was their name.
