It is official - Gital Dodelson received a Get today


46 comments :

  1. I hope they had to repay all his legal fees to get this. Did she agree to joint custody? What about his father and uncle's jobs?

    1. And he didn't get what he wanted ,you won't be happy? BH the story is over. Be happy they can now get on with their lives and have a chance to remarry.

    2. They paid a pretty penny. But being free from being an agunah is not something you can put a price on.

    3. Dovevos,
      What Agunah are you referring to?

      She didn't have to make herself an acclaimed Agunah, she could have simply gone to Bais Din asked summoned AM for a Get. But she didn't! She chose to make herself into the "Face of Agunot", without even being one. She also chose to be very destructive along the way. Something you cannot put a price on.

    1. It seems why you may be in pursuit of honesty you are not in pursuit of halacha.

      Kindly educate yourself as to what the halacha is when someone is Motzi La'az on a get.

    2. Considering the public pressure that they have put on the Weiss' it is a reasonable question according to Rav Sternbuch's teshuva. There is no categorical prohibition of questioning the validity of a get.

      I do think the reasonable answer is that the get is kosher and was not given because of the pressure.

    3. You may want to recheck your sources on that. Especially the position of R MOshe

    5. I refer to being Motzi La'az regarding the validity of a get. You may want to research what R Moshe held.

    6. This is Rav Moshe Feinstein's view

      שו"ת אגרות משה אבן העזר חלק א סימן קלז

      בדבר האשה שנתגרשה אצל הרה"ג ר' יוסף דוב פאיין שליט"א בפארטלאנד ארעגאן זה כשלשים שנה וניסת ע"פ גט זה לאחר וילדה בנות והבנות כבר נישאו לאנשים כשרים ועתה יצא לעז על הגט ההוא באשר שהבעל לא רצה אז ליתן גט עד שתתן לו אלף דאלאר ונזדמן אח"כ שמהערכאות חייבוהו ליתן להאשה בעד מזונותיה ולא רצה ליתן ואסרוהו במאסר עד שיתן מה שחייבוהו ונתרצית האשה להוציאו מהמאסר באם יתן גט והסכים הבעל ונתן גט, שאולי יש לזה דין גט מעושה. והנה בעצם אין לדון כלל עתה בעובדא זו ויש לגעור בהשואל שרוצה להוציא לעז על גט שנעשה לפני כמה שנים לפני רב שהורשה לסדר גיטין, שודאי ח"ו לנו להרהר ולפקפק שמא לא נעשה כדין התורה. ויש לחוש גם לחרם דר"ת. שאף ששואל זה לא ידע מתחלה ורשאי לשאול כדאיתא בסג"ר סעיף רמ"ג שהחרם הוא רק על אלו שהיו בשעת נתינת הגט ולא ערערו אז, מ"מ מי שאמר להשואל שהוא היה אז ולא ערער עד עתה הרי יש עליו חרם דר"ת. אבל אף אם ליכא חרם דר"ת אין לנו להרהר על גט שנעשה אצל רב שהוסמך להוראה שמא לא נעשה כדין. ואין להבעלים של האשה והבנות לחוש כלל.

    7. According to the words of Shira Dicker the get is posul as get me'usa.
      =================
      Shira Dicker, the publicist who has worked with the Dodelson family in their public campaign to compel Weiss to give the get, said the pressure finally worked.

      “The community pressure really just began to multiply, and then something changed,” Dicker told JTA.

      Dodelson’s claim of having received the get could not be independently verified with Weiss, who is a great-grandson of the late Orthodox luminary Rabbi Moshe Feinstein.

      Dicker said Dodelson will continue to advocate for the countless Orthodox women chained to recalcitrant husbands.

      “The family wants to remain as agunah advocates,” Dicker said. “It doesn’t end with Gital’s get.”

    8. I have R Moshe who says " אין לנו להרהר על גט שנעשה אצל רב שהוסמך להוראה שמא לא נעשה כדין."
      You want to rabble rouse and be Mearer on this get. Who are you questioning, R Chaim Ganzweig?

      You are putting yourself into the same boat with Shira Dicker. Its just that she has a reason to say that- she can make money self promoting. But you?

      Delete
    9. Dovevos you aren't bothering reading what I wrote. I pointed out that Dicker is the one who is raising questions about the get. I pointed out that I believe the Get is kosher.

    10. I am referring to pursuit of honesty when i said "you". i was only pointing out to you, DT, that contrary to what you said that "There is no categorical prohibition of questioning the validity of a get." Rav Moshe held differently/

      Delete
    11. Rav Moshe does not say it is categorically prohibited

      Delete
    12. Dicker's view that the get was produced by pressure i.e., is posul is spreading

Vehakol yavo al mekomo beShalom.

    1. Hopefully they will both focus on getting ahead with their lives and not producing any more distressful issue - especially for their son's sake.

      I would really not like to have to publish any more material on this divorce. I don't think Lakewood would like to see anymore negative publicity. .

  5. I wish the very best for both of them.

  6. Sadly there are people who wish to continue this fight even though the parties involved came to a resolution.
    What other "positive" thing have you gotten done today?

  7. Winners:

    Weiss. For showing the world they will not buckle to the social media / NY Post filth attacks. Waited long enough to demonstrate that clearly.

    NY Post: Have now learned well that bashing the Orthodox Jews' lifestyle and Torah rules sells papers.

    BMG: Have now learned that the use of the media can be to their advantage - if used against feeble opponents.

    R' Eidensohn: Clearly now on the forefront of the truthful issues on hand.

    Losers:

    Shira Dicker: Should reimburse all monies paid for her useless campaign.

    Kovod Hatorah: All the signatories who demonstrated that they are not knowledgeable in basic halachos pertaining to when one is "mechuyav li'garsho", and that in the future their signature is considered worthless.

  12. I hope that next time the couple's family and friends will urge them to behave like Jews should instead of each trying to "win." Also I wish this would be an impetus for setting up Battei Din that are widely considered fair and honorable that all parties will trust to resolve disputes of this nature, but I realize, unfortunately, that it unlikely, may God protect us.
