“When Film and Reality Meet”

by Osnat Sharon

Jerusalem Post Op-Ed –  14/10/2014

A woman has been separated from her husband for four years. She doesn’t love him anymore, doesn’t get along with him and wants a divorce. And the husband? He refuses to give her a get – a Jewish divorce document.

She’s been trying to divorce him for five years. For five years she’s been coming to the rabbinic courthouse again and again, but she has yet to receive a get.

This is the plot of the film Get, which recently received the Ophir Award. It is also the life story of many women who frequent the hallways of the rabbinical courts throughout Israel.  Click to read the full article on the Jerusalem Post website… 

Osnat Sharon is a rabbinical court advocate and attorney who serves as director of OTS’s Yad L’isha: the Monica Dennis Goldberg Legal Aid Center and Hotline.
