Powering Women and Girls for a Better World
UNCHAIN MY HEART
Central to Pesach is the theme of freedom of the Jewish people from enslavement in Egypt.
Although they are not chained to work as slaves, there are Jewish women who are bound to their husbands u able to obtain a Gett. These Agunot (chained women) are battling for freedom
NCJWAVIC joins with our partner Unchain My Heart In sharing the Myths and Facts of Jewish Divorce by Get Jewish Divorce Justice.
We believe that education and knowledge is key in advocating for Agunot. The more Informed we are the more powerful we will be.
Unchain My Heart are committed to advancing the social welfare of Australian Jewish Women by promoting the successful resolution of Gett refusal and by providing support and assistance to individual Agunah.
