The Get – A Religious Jewish Divorce

divorce decree Orthodox Union

Perhaps you’ve heard there is a special Jewish religious divorce. It is called a “get”. In ancient times, men basically owned the women in their lives – wives, daughters, sisters. So creating a way that marriage ends and frees the woman to marriage again was pretty forward thinking. Interfaith couples rarely worry about a get but it is nice to know what it is.

This short video from G-dcast will give you an understanding of this Jewish ritual object.
