     Read Article:     Freeing Agunot: A Legacy of Rabbi Gedalya Dov Schwartz, z"tl

     Our Mission:

     To free women trapped in dead marriages by recalcitrant husbands who refuse to grant a Get

      To promote a systemic halachic solution to free agunot. Rabbinical courts must be encouraged to assert their halachic authority to dissolve dead marriages by applying the halachic concepts of kiddushei tau, hafkaat kiddushin, and umdenah

     To alert the Jewish community as to the severity and magnitude of the agunah problem.

     To educate the Jewish community about Halachic precedents and remedies for freeing agunot.

     To counsel women whose husbands use the Get as a weapon to extort financial gain or custodial rights, or to exact revenge during the divorce process. 

     To provide financial aid for agunot in need.

What we can do for you:

     We can counsel you how to navigate the beit din system in pursuit of the Get.

     We can alert you to the risks inherent in seeking a Get in the beit din system.

     You are not alone. We can put you in touch with former agunot.

Who We Are :

     We are an all-volunteer organization.

     Our services are free of charge.

About our Beit Din:

The Rabbi Emanuel Rackman/Agunah International Beit Din LInyenei 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 taut, hafkaat kiddushin, and umdenah to dissolve the marriage.
