Divorce

Historically, only a man could initiate Jewish divorce proceedings. The ceremony itself required a woman’s passive participation and did not address the concerns of same-sex couples. Recognizing that a divorce means more than the disillusion of property, we offer rituals to provide comfort and closure—addressing  a range of emotions for all people going through a divorce. May they bring healing to all who use them.
