Rabbinical Court Advocate Rachel Levmore seeks to inform the public about the extent of acceptance, amongst the rabbinical world, of prenuptial agreements designed to prevent the phenomenon of get-refusal. She presents a number of relevant responsa, dating from the mid-20th century to the present, offering direct access to information and sources which have, to date, been largely concealed from the public eye or ignored.  She concludes by reiterating the value of signing the Agreement for Mutual Respect, of which she is one of the authors.
