Who You Gonna Call, Rabbi Yehuda Gordon

Orthodox Jewish ritual law requires a husband to give a woman a bill of divorce known in Hebrew as a a "Get" to be considered single. Maliciously a husband can refuse to sign the bill leaving their wives "agunah" or literally a "chained" wife.

Rabbi Yehuda Gordon and his team to track down "fugitive" husbands and persuade them to sign the Get. If the husband is in Israel, the Rabbinical Court can freeze assests or revoke driver's licenses or passports.
