Aaron refuses to give Devorah a get, leaving her an agunah, chained to a dead marriage.

A seruv (order of contempt) was issued against Aaron from the Beth Din of America.

A seruv is a document that indicates that a party has refused to comply with a Jewish court and is held in contempt of court. In the Jewish divorce process, if a husband or wife disobeys the ruling of a Jewish court and refuses to either issue or receive a get, a seruv is issued against them.

Jewish communities traditionally ban recalcitrant individuals who refuse to comply with a reputable Jewish court from entering the synagogue for public prayer and receiving Torah and other community honors. Members of the Jewish community are encouraged to forgo social and business contacts with such recalcitrant individuals in an effort to persuade them to comply with the Jewish courts. It is important to provide support to victims of Get-refusal, and persuade these individuals to appear before and comply with a recognized Jewish court.

Aaron’s family:

Father: Mendel Silberberg (works at Mount Sinai)
Mother: Malky Silberberg

Esther Silberberg
Moshe Silberberg
Sara Hinda Rosenthal
Shloimy Silberberg
Chaim Yehuda Silberberg

#FreeDevorah

A rally is planned for tomorrow Tuesday March 16th, to pursuade Aaron to give a Get. The rally is endorsed by Rabbi Efrem Goldberg, a well respected Rabbi in Boca Roaton.

I’m not commenting on this case as I only know what’s printed here.

My point isnt who is right and who is wrong.

However it’s wrong to post his parents and siblings phone numbers, purely wrong and disgusting.

I don’t know the details of this case, but I knew Aaron and Devorah when they lived in Coventry. They were both very nice and had me over for shabbos more times than I can count. I’d say both of them are wonderful people. I also remember many times that Aaron sacrificed a lot for Devorah. He was a great husband and a great father. I don’t know what happened that brought this nor do I know the details. However, I know Aaron is a good man and his family are all Jews who’d give the shirt off their back for another Jew. It is always a shame when these things are brought to public because we are usually not given all the details and both sides of the story.

Not right to post family’s phone numbers. What did they do?

I’m sorry I think this is not fair I don’t know the case but we’re only 1 year since he legally divorced his wife. are there children that he’s trying to see? Is she demanding money? Are there other details that are not published? a letter from a beth din is very nice but anyone who knows someone who went through this knows it’s not that hard to get rabbanim against one side. I’m not vindicating this case, he could be wrong and should be shamed if that’s the case however, if it isn’t shame on the people exerting pressure by publishing personal family info and making a big deal

not every one who does not give a get is a bum, some men are getting screwed by wives who demand much.
I once had a friend who had to go into hiding since his ex was the daughter of a powerful and wealthy frum man whom the rabbis backed because of his money.
He eventually made a settlement, but it took several years.

So do not think that ALL men who refuse to give gets are evil, sometimes the wives are to blame.

The ultimate solution.. All feminists should get married for one year only.. With an option to renew.

For all those people who claim withholding the ghet to win visits with the kids think kids want to be with a father who withholds a ghet are delusional. The kids of fathers who don’t give the ghet are filled with shame of what their father is doing to their mother. Any father who doesn’t give the ghet right away really doesn’t want a normal relationship with his kids. The kids will be torn apart emotionally from watching their mother suffer at the hands of their father.

As one who has experience with giving gets, I don’t understand why there was a civil divorce before a get was given. I fail to understand why any man would withhold a get from a former wife.

I think this method of public pressure may work better than prods or other methods used before. So this may become the norm of every agunah case.
A ghet is sad but even sadder when its not given on time.

Lets just be clear, an “aguna” in the times of gemara was a lady whose husband went off to another country and we do not know if he is dead or alive. Its types of circumstances that are not self induced. We never found a gemara that discussed a case when a women “wanted ” a get and the husband refused barring an extreme circumstance. A female in halacha and gemara have no right to demand a get just because she wants out and she is not a aguna if she does. This is just halacha. So this borrowed cliché of aguna is a 20th century invention. There is very little makor in Judaism for this. Is it abusive to not give a get? I don’t know and BH I was never tested. I’d definitely say that idea of divorce nowadays is to loose. In the olden days, you stayed married and finished even if you fought till the day you died. Listen to Rabbi Miller ZT”L about divorce. This is all a new women’s lib metoo secular kind of approach. Women should be trying to work it out and not asking for a get. The same is true for a man who wants to give a get. Force him to work it out. Only in extreme examples should we enable a get. We need to stop being so loose.

Yes there’s two sides to every story
But if a Choshuva Rov signs on then you know the real story

Vos iz neias should be commended for being on the forefront of this terrible plague that has been ignored while multitudes of Agunos wallo in misery with their families

The Rabbonim are not interested in sholom Bayis and don’t really care if the husband is being robbed of his property and children.. In addition no one is informing the wife that second marriages end up in a second divorce over 80% of the time. And she cannot return to the first husband.. Also children of broken homes cannot find easily ordinary shidduchim.. So divorce should occur only in extreme situations.

Having several billboards surrounding Boca FL and Lakewood NJ with his picture being worked on as I type. The non jews and even the dog walkers a mile a way will know and recognize him anywhere he goes. Sad I have to to do this but left him a message and never got a return call so time to proceed. I just feel bad for his siblings as they are in the Pic as well. The sad part is that even once he gives the gett many non Jewish websites will end up publishing about the billboards and will never remove the old news and will tarnish him and the family as long as the internet is up which is likely forever. Meaning even in 100 years from now after we all here are dead there will be no way to erase what he did 100 years prior
