ABSTRACT
The article examines the circumstances in which intrafamilial tort law in Israel fills the gap created when family law is reluctant or unable to provide the requested remedy by women and children who challenge Jewish and Shari'a laws. It discusses intrafamilial tort lawsuits and the interrelations between tort and family law. Particular focus is given to lawsuits where there are conflicts between tort law, Jewish law and Shari'a law. The framework for economic torts developed by legal scholars Guido Calabresi and A. Douglas Melamed is tackled.
