Personal Stories

We encourage you to share "your story" so that others may benefit from your experience. By sharing your story, you help bring awareness and understanding of the scope of Get refusal and the emotional impact on Jewish families. The more that the Rabbinic community is exposed to these stories, the more compelled they may be to develop further Halachic responses to Get refusal.

Stories are posted under fictitious names to protect your privacy.
