How to Get a Jewish Divorce

Recommended for ages 9+

Want to learn about Jewish Divorce? Just as Judaism offers rituals to make marriage sacred…when divorce is necessary, Judaism also provides a sacred context. Interesting, right? While issues about ending a marriage can be messy and complex we have explained the one piece that can be rather… simple.

The videos in the Lifecycles Series were made possible with generous support from The Koret Foundation, as part of their Initiative on Jewish Peoplehood. Based in San Francisco, the Koret Foundation supports groups like G‑dcast that contribute to a thriving community enhancing the quality of life for all.
