5.6.2018: Women unchained after 20 years

Yesterday a 2-decade saga came to an end for Zvia Gorodezky, who received her freedom. Her marriage was annulled by a private bein din headed by Rabbi Prof. Daniel Sperber. 

Well done to the Center for Women's Justice team, and especially to Nitzan Caspi Shilony and Dr Susan Weiss, on the initiative.

This halachic verdict will probably be contested and will spark halachic and popular discussions online and offline. However, one thing must be said: 'There are judges in Jerusalem'; brave judges, who yesterday helped to free a woman who has been jailed in an invisible jail for the past twenty years.
