A Jewish marriage is terminated by the granting of a get, a document of divorce. If the husband is unwilling or unable to give a get to the wife, the wife is an agunah and may not remarry. This situation is considered one of the greatest crises in the Orthodox world today. The reference material below examines a variety of issues pertaining to iggun, including an overview of agunah advocacy efforts and halakhic analyses of proposed solutions to this crisis.
