SUMMIT ON THE TOPIC OF THE RESOLUTION OF THE AGUNAH PROBLEM

The agunah represents not only the suffering of individual Jewish wives but also the presence of injustice in our midst. Despite significant advances in communal awareness, agunah aid, and prenuptial agreements,the problem of chained wives continues to exist and can threaten every Jewish marriage in Israel and countless others across the globe.

The purpose of the Agunah Summit is twofold: to demonstrate the existence of systemic solutions within Jewish law that can resolve current agunah cases and prevent future ones, and to commit as a community to their broader application. Such solutions, and their use, testify to the self-correcting mechanisms of our great halakhic tradition.
