Supreme Rabbinical Court poised to re-open agunah case

In an unprecedented step, the Supreme Rabbinical Court is weighing whether or not to allow a third party appeal against a divorce ruling that could lead to the revocation of a woman’s divorce from her husband who has been in a coma for the last nine years.

The case relates to a 34-year old woman whose husband was involved in a motorcycle accident nine years ago and sustained severe injuries. He fell into a coma and has not recovered since.
