What people say ...
They didn’t prepare me and it felt humiliating
Rabbi was cold and unemotional to me yet kind and considerate to my ex husband. Felt like he just wasn't understanding of how emotionally scary it is for a women to go through. He also called me a feminist during the gett session and other derogatory phrases that made me feel disrespected
The secretary was nice and quick to answer emails
I realize they take of their own and are biased. They do not look to do what's right and/ or make peace. Its more about $ then following halacha.
There needs to be a bet din in los angeles that is yashar and looking to make shalom between individuals and state who is right ad wrong based on torah perspectives, not on favoritism or financial gain.
Rules based on personal interests
The man I was married to attempted to engage ‘sketchy’ Beit Dins to issue the Get. The marriage was dirty, he was adulterous for at least ten years. I wanted a clean, kosher Get from a reputable Beit Din. ORA provided support and the legal knowledge background I needed to move forward despite the threat of a seruv and late night salacious bullying phone calls from those questionable rabbis. The Civil Court order a cease and desist order regarding the questionable Beit Din.
Finally, the Civil Court divorce judgment stipulated that the Get would be issued from my choice of a kosher Beit Din. No more sketchy unquestionable Get business.
Rabbi Davidi handed me my copy of the Get and in return I gave him
NO VISIBLE BRUISES What We Don’t Know About Domestic Violence Can Kill Us, by Rachel Louise Synder which should be required reading for all Rabbis sitting on a Beit Din as well as all Mikva attendants.
Rabbi Union answered my questions and communicated promptly
I wasn't taken seriously until I had my Rabbi (at the time was Weil) make calls on my behalf
It wasn't until my well known Rabbi called on my behalf was I given the time of day! I was so disappointed that in 2005, a Woman couldn't represent herself.
I didnt end up having a get for over 8 years and they took money but didnt help me get it. He was violent and i ended up in shelter with my child and they wouldnt help. Just the opposite
