Jewish Law Watch, a
bi-annual publication of the Center for Women in Jewish Law of the Schechter Institute,
examines actual agunot cases that have languished for years in the rabbinical
courts without resolution.
January 2000, the Center for Women in Jewish Law published its first case study
on agunot in its bi-annual Jewish Law Watch, a journal which offers
alternative opinions to those of the Orthodox rabbinic courts.
goal of the Jewish Law Watch is to pressure the rabbinical courts to publish
their decisions in a timely and organized fashion, much as civil court decisions
are published, and to encourage rabbinical courts to use the halakhic tools which
are at their disposal in order to free modern-day agunot.
of Jewish Law Watch are available in English and Hebrew for $2.50 (10 NIS).
