Getting Serious About Get-Refusal


Printer-Ready Page Layout
Levmore-071312



The institution of a standard practice of signing a prenuptial agreement for the prevention of Get-refusal can prevent what had become a growing problem. And within a few years of such a practice taking hold, the rabbinic leadership will be able to say, without fear of contradiction, “We don’t have an agunah problem.”

Rachel Levmore, a Ph.D. from Bar-Ilan University, is a rabbinical court advocate, coordinator of the Get-Refusal Prevention Project of the Council of Young Israel Rabbis and the Jewish Agency, and author of “Minee Einayich Medima” on prenuptial agreements for the prevention of Get refusal.

    When Rabbi Weiss married us 10 years ago, in Brooklyn, he made us sign a pre-nup… I guess he is beyond his years… and the other Rabbi's are just starting to catch up..

  3. We also had a pre-nup, based on the draft written by Rabbi Willig over 20 years ago, though we actually amended it a bit, and Rabbi Willig then used our amendment in the standard RCA version. I think that they were more popular in the early nineties, fell out of favor and are hopefully now making a comeback.
