Can two Anglicans divorce in Israel ?

They cannot divorce in Israel according to religious law because the Anglican faith is not recognised here but they can go through the civil process of dissolution of marriage .
Proceedings should be initiated at the family court and the process will be shorter than usual because the Anglican faith is not officially recognised in Israel and has no court system of its own. There will, therefore, be no need for the deputy president of the family court to ask for legal opinions from a religious court, and he will rule that the family court has jurisdiction over the dissolution of the parties’ marriage . Mutual consent is sufficient grounds.
