Item Description:

The topic of agunot, women without legal divorces, is one of the most complicated Halachic issues in Jewish life. Rabbi Wein traces Jewish divorce law back to the 10th century when Rabbeinu Gershom sought to equalize women's rights with his rulings. He then shows how the separation of church and state in the modern era has affected Jewish divorce, and brings the issue to the present with a discussion of how both American civil law and today's rabbis have tried to find solutions to the troublesome agunah problem.
