|How You Can Help Agunot
Agunah International Inc.
Ø To free women trapped in dead marriages by recalcitrant husbands who refuse to grant a Get.

Ø To alert the Jewish community as to the severity and magnitude of the agunah problem.
Ø To educate the Jewish community about Halachic precedents and remedies for freeing agunot.

About our Beit Din:
The Rabbi Emanuel Rackman/Agunah International Beit Din L’Inyenei Agunot adjudicated cases from 1997 to 2006. When other rabbinical courts failed to assert their halachic authority to free these women (agunot), our Beit Din invoked the halachic concepts of kiddushei ta’ut, hafka’at kiddushin, and umdenah to dissolve the marriage.
