Postnuptial Signing in Tzfat
IYIM’s main Agunah Day event took place in Tzfat this year. Continuing the Agunah and Get-Refusal Project’s aim of holding Postnuptial Signing Parties in communities around the Israel, in order to educate the public through a surprising method – a “Do as I do” approach – the Anglo community hosted the first IYIM Postnuptial Signing Party to take place in Tzfat. They were treated to good food and good music by their own local rabbi and his wife, Rabbi Yacov and Miriam Drori, who provide leadership in promoting signing the Agreement of Mutual Respect amongst both married and engaged couples. The IYIM staff succeeded in creating an intimate ambiance, as is becoming to the spiritual atmosphere in this special city, and there was no doubt that the words of explanation of Rav Drori and IYIM’s Dr. Rachel Levmore, together with the act of signing the postnuptial Agreement for Mutual Respect, created a deep and long-lasting impression upon the participants. Each one will carry the message forward to all marrying couples – You can wipe out the agunah problem in Israeli society by signing the Agreement for Mutual Respect for the prevention of get-refusal!
