ORA resolves current cases of get-refusal by combining facilitation with advocacy, and prevents future cases by promoting the universal adoption of halachic prenuptial agreements. Our dedicated caseworkers formulate and spearhead an individualized action plan for each agunah by facilitating communication between all parties, navigating Jewish and civil court systems, trailblazing new approaches to case resolution, and rallying public support. When necessary, we apply social, communal, financial and legal pressure to ensure that a get is given unconditionally and in a timely fashion.
