Rabbi J holds onto my Get certificate until I have a civil divorce. I am going on almost a year and my ex husband did not sign the civil divorce mediation agreement. The wait for a court date in NJ for family court is now over 11 months. So my ex is basically holding my get certificate hostage by not giving me a civil divorce. 2) Rabbi J encouraged me not to bring a support person bc then he would have to offer it to my ex husband as well. But I sat in that room as the ONLY woman with 4 other men. This is a situation that socially we never allow to happen. And during a highly emotional time Rabbi J should consider having a female there as well. Even if they are just outside. There was no reason I should have had to sit in the room while they wrote the Get as the only woman. He tried to keep the mood “light” with banter. My ex husband is a politician and the conversation focused on township politics and Shuls. It was even more disturbing to me because the reason I asked for a divorce was because of his repeated unfaithfulness. It felt like he was being treated with all this respect without acknowledging the horrific pain he had caused.
Rabbi J did try to make the process comfortable as it could be
Felt like I was treated callously. My ex was from the community so Rabbi knew him well and despite the Rabbi acknowledging that I was well within my rights to end the marriage, he made callous comments that undermined the trauma I had experienced (ie “oh well. Better luck next time”)
Wish I knew what to expect during the actual gett “ceremony”, been told about the option of not being there in person, and at the very least been suggested to bring someone along
Very fast appointment. Supportive of both parties
When I was about to get remarried it was discovered that one of the eidim did not sign the get. The av beit din felt the rabbi who was marrying me a few days later should take his word that the get was kosher. This created unnecessary stress. It undermined my confidence in the rabbi.
