The Jewish Divorce Process and Get Refusal
October 14 @ 12:00 PM
A Get is a religious divorce under Jewish law and can only be given by a husband to a wife. When a husband refuses to give a Get, the woman becomes an “agunah” or “chained woman”. As an agunah, she is unable to remarry within the Jewish tradition and have full control over her own life decisions. Get refusal is common form of domestic abuse, a way to keep power and control over a woman. Learn more by attending our virtual event.
