Taking a Stand

Rabbi Jeremy Stern of the ORA organization takes a stand against Yechiel Friedman, a man refusing to give his wife a get for at least 18 years.

For those of you unfamiliar with Jewish ritual, Rabbi Stern is refusing the count Mr. Friedman in a minyan, the quorum of ten men required for Jewish prayer.

Kudos to Rabbi Stern and ORA for their good work, and for taking a stand, for making the refusal to give – or receive – a get, socially unacceptable.
