Aguna Update 2

You may recall that earlier this year, I sat on a Din Torah that directed a recalcitrant husband to give his estranged wife a get. The man launched a vicious attack upon me, to which I responded in two pieces, the second one naming the miscreant (

I am absolutely delighted to inform you that several weeks ago, the individual in question gave his wife a get  (!) in accordance with Torah law and she is now free to re-marry and move on with her life, as is he. And so she informed me, with palpable joy.

I have therefore removed the name of the miscreant from the article referenced above, and wish him success in life as well. The last few words I wrote are sweeter than ever: “All these attacks on me and others will be worthwhile on the day that (Deleted) frees his wife from the torment to which he has subjected her for several years.”

  1. I am happy to hear that an agunah has been freed [Baruch HaShem] but it should not have taken 8 months.

    And G_d bless all those who helped tp free her.

  2. Wonderful news! Yasher Kochacha!

  3. Tizku l’mitzvot, Rabbi Pruzansky. And a special yaher koach for enduring the personal attacks in the service of Hashem. I sure hope your kehilla realizes how fortunate they are to have you as their rav.
