Perks For Ultra-Orthodox Divorcees?


by Rebecca Honig Friedman

From an article about Em Habanim, an Israeli organization that provides support for haredi divorcees:

When Aliza told her married friends about the array of activities for mothers - from individual counseling, exercise classes and monthly field trips to the graves of tzadikim to vocational training and a workshop called “Mom Teaches Gemara” aimed at women with sons - one said, “It’s worth getting divorced just to get all of that.”

Funny.
