About ORA:

The Organization for the Resolution of Agunot believes that a get (writ of Jewish divorce) must never be used as a weapon. The Jewish divorce process requires the participation of both parties; all too often, a spouse refuses to comply in order to control the other party and utilize the get to extort concessions. ORA strives to eliminate the infliction of abuse within the Jewish divorce process. ORA resolves current cases of get-refusal by combining facilitation with advocacy and prevents future cases by promoting the universal adoption of halakhic prenuptial agreements.

ORA operates under the halakhic guidance of Rav Hershel Schachter, rosh yeshiva at the Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary of Yeshiva University.
