Founded in 1995 by a group of volunteer women led by the astounding Leah Ayn Globe, z"l, Mavoi Satum was an all-volunteer organization for many years, and remains a largely volunteer-based organization working on behalf of agunot.

As a result of ongoing conversations with women, Mavoi Satum has developed a holistic approach to helping women achieve their freedom by working in both the rabbinic and state court systems (beit din and beit mishpat) as well as the social services apparatus. Mavoi Satum is the only organization that offers women an integrated service of complete legal aid, social services and emotional support. , thus helping women gain emotional independence and transform their sense of self while they endure the harrowing process of divorce. By combining all these services, Mavoi Satum provides women with the best chance for achieving for freedom and rebuilding their lives.
