Does the Mizbeach Cry when an Abusive Marriage Ends with Rabbi YY Jacobson
We have all learned about the Gemara that says that when someone divorces his wife, even the Mizbeach (Altar) sheds tears on his account. (Gittin 90b, Sanhedrin 22a). What does this really mean and how does it apply to ending a marriage of severe pain and abuse? Rabbi YY Jacobson discusses: “Does the Mizbeach Cry When an Abusive Marriage Ends? An hashkafic view on ending an abusive marriage.” Presented under a grant by the New York City Council Domestic Violence Initiative .
