Reviving the Rackman Agunah Beit Din

Like Rabbi Rackman, I often found myself silenced at or excluded from Orthodox Jewish feminist meetings and forums. But the Dayyanim of the RBD and we of AGUNAH Int’l felt strongly that our cause was just and firmly rooted in Halachah. Furthermore, despite the scorn heaped on the RBD, agunot were voting with their feet. Though aware of the limited acceptance of RBD annulments, they kept coming for release from their dead marriages. The RBD continued to function until Rabbi Rackman’s age prevented him from continuing to lead the Beit Din.
