Rosh Chodesh Shevat 5779
As we prepare to recite ‘Shehechiyanu’ for tasting new fruits on Tu B'Shevat, let us imagine the joy of a woman who has been freed from a dead marriage. Let us imagine Rabbinic courts that seek halachic precedents to void a marriage where it is warranted. Let us strive to recite "Shehechiyanu" – thanking Hashem for sustaining us to behold the day when every Agunah case is resolved.
