Penina is aged 53, the mother of Liat, 20 years old. In 1992, when Liat was a toddler, Penina separated from her husband and began divorce proceedings. On the brink of signing an agreement and setting a date for the get, her husband asked and received permission from the Rabbinical Court to delay the process for several days. During that window of time, he fled the country to the United States and left Penina an Aguna. As devastated as she was, Penina chose not to pursue the get, but to concentrate on bringing up her only child and working as a teacher to support her. Now that she is retired and her daughter is grown up and a soldier, Penina has re-opened her file for divorce in the Rabbinical Court. Her first step has been to try and locate her husband in one of the New York religious communities. If successful, Mavoi Satum’s lawyer will contact him and try to reach a divorce agreement. If he still refuses to give Penina a get, Mavoi Satum will advocate for her in the Rabbinical Court here in Israel and enlist the help of an American organization which is devoted to helping Agunot in Israel whose husband’s find shelter in the U.S.A.
