Can a court that grants a wife and children a protection order include financial penalties against the father if he breaks various undertakings it obliges him to make ?

Yes, under the 1991 Prevention of Violence Within The Family Act, the court has discretion to attach conditions to its orders. For example, a few years ago The Jerusalem Family Court gave a wide-ranging protection order against a husband/father. It banned him from entering the family home for a month, and forbad him from trying to prevent his family gaining access, and from harassing them for a period of three months. It said that he must deposit a written guarantee to pay his wife a sum of money, if anytime during the coming year, the court held that he had beached these undertakings.
