Improving the System
Every year, tens of thousands of Jewish people go through the beit din system for divorce.
A worldwide survey of people who experienced the process in rabbinic court highlighted many areas in need of serious change and standardization. Yet currently, there is no body of authority one can turn to have these changes made.
In response, global organizations deeply familiar with the system came together to create Rate My Beit Din as a means to encourage and support this change. It is a forum for people to rate their experiences and a path for improvement for batei din.
RMBD offers best practices and training to help batei din improve. Areas include clear guidelines, self evaluations, timely responsiveness, training in domestic violence, addiction, mental illness and hiring female support staff.
