Organization for the Resolution of Agunot (ORA)
ORA seeks to eliminate abuse from the Jewish divorce process. ORA works within the parameters of Jewish law and civil law to advocate for the timely and unconditional issuance of a get. ORA believes that the protracted refusal to issue or receive a get is a form of domestic abuse which must never be tolerated. ORA seeks to foster a Jewish community in which a get is never used as a weapon. ORA pursues its mission through agunah case advocacy, early intervention programs, and educational initiatives for agunah prevention. Visit www.getora.org for more information
Project One Step Forward: The Jewish Divorce Resource Line
One Step Forward (OSF) is a special project of ORA providing support, guidance, and resources to anyone going through the Jewish divorce process. Our mission is to empower individuals to make well-informed decisions at every stage of their journey and avoid the deterioration of the divorce process into a situation of Get-refusal. Early intervention makes a difference! Through Project OSF, we are able to provide you with information and support early on in your divorce process. Since 2015, Project OSF has assisted over 1100 individuals in navigating the Jewish divorce process, has helped many individuals receive their Get, and has prevented countless other agunah situations. Most importantly, we are here for you and are a reminder that you do not have to go through this alone! Call toll-free at 1-844-OSF-LINE (673-5463).
Support for Unplanned Pegnancies

SHIFRA offers customized financial resources, social and emotional support that can make abortion feel unnecessary for women in crisis. These include financial aid, free professional counseling, and more. Half of our clients are married and identify as Orthodox. Sometimes, even women with an abortion heter will choose not to abort when they gain access to our services- customized to meet their specific needs. SHIFRA is not an adoption facilitator but do have strong relationships with Jewish adoption organizations. However, the vast majority of SHIFRA clients choose to raise their children.
