Traveling photography exhibit In the Shadows is a portraiture exploration of agunot, also known as "chained women." Agunot are women who have been unable to procure a gett, or divorce document, from their husbands, so they cannot remarry. This is a serious issue in the Orthodox Jewish world, in which men have the final say over whether their wives may exit their marital agreement. Come see these photographs, which will be available for viewing in the JCC lobby.
