Geula – who is in her mid sixties – has six grown children and nine grandchildren. Geula was married before her 18th birthday to a man ten years her senior. Initially silent and submissive to an abusive and controlling husband, over the years Geula discovered her capabilities as a community leader and artist. She slowly gained confidence and in 1994, after 33 years of marriage, filed for divorce in the Rabbinical court. Sadly, 16 years later, Geula still does not have a get. Her husband has remained recalcitrant and has chosen to sit in prison for months rather than give her a divorce. Though still a mesurevet get, Geula has not allowed this reality to determine her life. She has pursued her love of arts and crafts and has been actively involved in her community’s cultural activities. In addition, Geula has been a devoted volunteer of Mavoi Satum. For several years, she planned and coordinated the empowerment workshops for other mesurevot get in Mavoi Satum’s offices. There is no doubt that Geula symbolizes the tragedy of sarbanut get but at the same time embodies the resilience, ability and courage of women to take control of their own lives in spite of the harsh reality.
