I have this friend; I’ve mentioned her before. When I first wrote about theÂ Agunah Crisis, she wasn’t an official agunah. Just someone starting the divorce process in Israel, struggling as an American feminist in the antiquated system of the Rabbinical courts. Now it’s been two weeks since she’s been refused a get. I have to say, even from the outside…two weeks is a long time to feel like that. I can’t imagine the levels of frustration, anger and helplessness of those women who have held the status for years. The good thing is, in this era of blogs and tweets, she’s able to get her thoughts out there, even if only anonymously. I know a lot of friends follow her blog. But I think it’s time, as a friend with access to a larger audience, to recognize her.
Much love to Yerushalmit!
