was not accepted by Oriental communities, the prohibition of divorce against the will of the wife was universally accepted. See B. Schereschewsky, Family Law in Israel ( Jerusalem: R. Mass, 1974), p. 323; Y. Epstein, Aruch ha'- shulchan (even ha' ezer), vol. 6, 119:14; Haut, supra, n. 1, p. 55, n. 31.

Haut, supra, n. 1, ch. 10, pp. 59-61.
32.
See Haut, supra, n. 1, p. 56 and n. 33, for discussion of circumstances wherein the husband may avoid the application of the subject rule of Rabbenu Gershom, such as where the wife is declared to be "rebellious," by recourse to the bet din, or by means of permission obtained from one hundred rabbis.

See Haut, supra, n. 1, p. 13; Haut, supra, n. 2, Tradition, Appendix.

58 N.Y.2d 108, 459 N.Y.S.2d 572, 446 N.E.2d 136 ( 1983). For further discussion of the decision in that case, see Haut, supra, n. 1, pp. 77-80.

Haut, supra, n. 1; Haut, Tradition, supra, n. 2. It is unfortunate that in his otherwise fine work of scholarship, Riskin, supra, n. 3, after detailing the brilliant contributions by the Geonim to this area of law, and after fully supporting and justifying their takkanah, refrained from advocating reenactment of the like type of takkanah called for by this writer. Instead he suggests a prenuptial agreement, which is far less effective. See ibid, p. 140. The Law Committee of the Rabbinical Assembly has rabbinic courts that annul marriages according to the Conservative movement's interpretation of halakhah.
