Summary "This book takes the reader inside the rabbinic courts, into civil divorce courts and legislatures that contend with this problem and into the lives of victimized women and children. Well-versed in Jewish divorce law, the authors have counseled thousands of agunot, and challenged the Orthodox rabbinate's inaction in response to the injustices faced by these women"-- Provided by publisher
