A Feminist Perspective on Gett Refusal

Time: 12:00 - 1:00 PM
Description: A gett is a document in Jewish law which effectuates a divorce between a Jewish couple. Husbands must give a gett to his wife to release her from the marriage and allow her to see other men. Some husbands refuse to provide their wife a gett unless he receives compensation from her family. Professor Orit Gan, a professor at Bar-Ilan University in Israel argues that getts should be inalienable.
