Jewish tradition offers ritual and support during this often-difficult time. In the simple ancient ritual of one partner handing a specially crafted Get to the other who then takes three steps in a new direction, we give space for both mourning what was and making meaning for what can yet be. In this way, we do not leave the dissolution of the marriage to the courtroom, but our tradition offer an opportunity to create the closure that comes from reciting the ancient formula, “I release you.”

Please contact Rabbi Glanzberg-Krainin at rdgk@bethsholomcongregation.org for more information on Jewish resources around the dissolution of a marriage.
