Prayer for Agunot

From JOFA, Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance

Creator of heaven and earth, may it be Your will to free the
captive wives of Israel when love and sanctity have fled the home,
but their husbands bind them in the tatters of their ketubot.
Remove the bitter burden from these agunot and soften the hearts
of their misguided captors. Liberate Your faithful daughters from
their anguish. Enable them to establish new homes and raise up
children in peace.

Grant wisdom to the judges of Israel; teach them to recognize
oppression and rule against it. Infuse our rabbis with the courage
to use their power for good alone.

Blessed are you, Creator of heaven and earth, who frees the captives.
