Postnuptial Signing Party!
An amazing event was held in Jerusalem on September 13th by the IYIM project! The Postnuptial Agreement Signing Party was an exemplary demonstration of how good people getting together can make a difference in “Tikkun Olam”, in bettering Jewish society. Over fifty couples gathered in the Kehillat Nitzanim synagogue were treated to good food and good music, heard succinct messages from Rabbi Shai Finklestein of Kehillat Nitzanim and Dr. Rachel Levmore, director of the IYIM Agunah and Get-Refusal Prevention Project, and signed the postnuptial Agreement for Mutual Respect. The atmosphere was most unusual, one of upliftment -- for all of the participants understood that they were making history, solving the problem of get-refusal in a manner within Jewish law, serving as an example for their own families and affecting change in Jewish societal mores. The parting words of all that participated were: “Thank you for doing all the good work that you do!; Thank you for a meaningful event; Thank you for a lovely evening; Thank you for helping us to sign; We have always meant to sign but never got to it-Thank you!; Thank you-Now my kids will understand that they have to sign a prenup when they get married” and more. The participants were so grateful and raving about the evening in its entirety with good food, good music, and a meaningful mission accomplished-- feeling that they had actually made history and influenced their own families and Jewish society.
