International CAR - still image [media]

An agunah is a woman "chained" to a husband who is either unwilling or unable to grant her a Jewish divorce. ICAR is dedicated to working toward a solution to this very serious problem. Their prayer on behalf of these women contains the following: "Creator of heaven and earth. / May it be your will to free the captive wives of Israel / Soften the hearts of their misguided captors. / Liberate your faithful daughters from their anguish."
