Frisch Seniors Learn About Plight of Agunot

Yeshivat Frisch seniors were sensitized to the plight of agunot last week, with a presentation from Michelle Greenberg-Kobrin, a board member of ORA (Organization for the Resolution of Agunot) and clinical assistant professor at YU’s Cardozo School of Law. Students learned about the challenges that agunot face, what the community can do to help solve the crisis as well as about the importance of the halachic prenup and how it works to prevent recalcitrant spouses from withholding a get and keeping their ex-partners chained to a dead marriage. The presentation was part of Frisch’s Senior Seminars program.
