I was heartened to read the letter to the editor by Rabbi Simcha Green about “Agunah Loopholes” (July 28, 2022). The Agunah issue continues to be a terrible tragedy affecting Jewish communities all over the world; it has gone on far too long. Maybe the Jewish Link can list the names of husbands refusing to give gitten to their wives, weekly and prominently—like some other Jewish papers do.

Public naming and shaming of these husbands is a small step which perhaps might be helpful.
