Jewish Woman Granted Religious Divorce After 3 Year Battle

image
An Orthodox Jewish woman from New Jersey has been granted a religious divorce after an almost 3 year battle with her ex husband. The parties married in 2009 and decided to separate in 2010. They were legally divorced in 2012, however the husband refused to grant her a religious divorce, known as a “get”.

25 year old, Gital Dodelson, told reporters last year that despite being legally divorced it meant nothing until the get was granted.

The story attracted national media attention in the New York Post which led to 14,000 people worldwide joining a Facebook group in support of Gital Dodelson being granted a get.

Dodelson has vowed to set up a not-for-profit organisation to help other women facing similar problems.
