Jewish Women's Foundation of New York
ORA will partner with the Jewish Women's Foundation of New York to expand the scope of its Agunah Prevention Initiative in the New York area. This initiative will empower thousands of Jewish women and girls in New York with the knowledge, tools and support to protect themselves from domestic abuse in general and get-refusal in particular. Additionally, another grant was awarded to ORA from the foundation to help ORA continue advocating on behalf of agunot and promote the use of the Jewish prenuptial agreement for the prevention of get-refusal.
ORA was selected as one of the most innovative Jewish nonprofits in North America in this year's Slingshot Guide! We are honored to be included for the third year in a row in the Women and Girl's Supplement and for the first time in the National Guide.

ORA has partnered with Yedidut Toronto to launch One Step Forward: The Jewish Divorce Resource Line. This resource line provides support, referrals and information to individuals in North America who have recently separated from their spouses or are considering separation and are seeking guidance in navigating theJewish divorce process. This project enables us to intervene early on in the divorce process and prevent contentious divorces from deteriorating into situations of get-refusal. Additionally, another grant was awarded to ORA for agunah advocacy support.
