Tammuz 5784 Tehillim Campaign

Mazal Tov to Adi Bat Ruth who received her get this past month.  

The 17th of Tammuz commences a three-week period of mourning that ends with Shabbat Nachamu (the Shabbat of comforting by God of the Jewish people). But for those in need of a get, who do not know when they will be freed, every day is a day of mourning- for their lives, the lives of their unborn children, and for the life of our community as Jews.

This Rosh Chodesh let us bless our daughters, with the strength to demand halachic prenups before marriage and solutions to get refusal.

The following 27 women are still in need of a get and have asked for your prayers.

 

Penina bat Nurit

Dana bat Batsheva

Rachel bat Simi

Merav bat Gila

Tali bat Tikva

Dafna bat Roya

Birkathyah bat Efrat

Rachel bat Yaffa

Adi bat Noseel

Shoshana bat Devora

Drora bat Tova

Chana bat Tzivia Miriam

Chaya Lonna bat Rivka Shulamis Menucha

Sarah bat Tamar Tami

Sarah bat Donna

Rivka bat Aliya

Yael Nagin bat Rachel

Sara Chana bat Esther Rivka

Rimma Rina Rochel bat Chaya Klara

Yehudis Simcha bat Sarah

Tziporah bat Zarin

Rachel Sarah bat Clare Orah

Ayala bat Tikveh

Meital bat Yaffa

Chana Aliza bat Dina

Rivka bat Sara

Ariza Nirel bat Sara

 

By reciting the names of those who have still to receive their get, we break the silence of suffering in our community. May our prayers be heard.

If you or someone you know is a victim of get refusal, please contact Esther Macner at [email protected].
