@DonielF indeed and I see Monica took care of this issue. I was going to take care of of your other issue but I see someone else helped already. Congratulations and onwards!

rikitikitemboI read recently of a case where a Rabbi (I assume as head of a Beit Din) instructed a Jewish burial society not to bury the body of a woman who is the mother of a man who refuses to give his wife a get (bill of divorce). This was done in order to apply pressure on the man to give his wife a get. ...
