The Center for Women in Jewish Law

(7 Case Studies)

The Center for Women in Jewish Law, since its inception in 1999, has worked towards formulating alternative legal approaches concerning the rights of Jewish women, most notably agunot, women whose husbands refuse them a writ of divorce and whose cases have dragged on in Israeli rabbinic courts; monitoring rabbinical court decisions and publishing academic and popular works to educate the public concerning the rights and status of women within Jewish tradition. These alternative approaches are available and accepted by many Jewish legal authorities.
