As an active Rabbinical Court Advocate since 1995, Rachel Levmore has specialized in cases of Iggun and Get-Refusal heard by the Israeli Rabbinical Courts. In January 2000 she became the first woman to join the "Agunot Unit" in the Directorate of the Israeli Rabbinical Courts. She is the Coordinator for Matters of Iggun and Get-Refusal, in a Council of Young Israel Rabbis project sponsored by the Jewish Agency for Israel. In that capacity she has helped hundreds of women attain their freedom from the untenable chains that bound them. Rachel resolves difficult cases of husband disappearance and of Get-Refusal in Israel and in the Diaspora.
Rachel was one of a team that developed a Prenuptial Agreement for the Prevention of Get-Refusal, which relates to problems peculiar to Israeli society, while still valid for worldwide application. This unusual agreement, which anchors modern day's philosophy of partnership and mutual respect in the halakha, is being signed and ratified in Israel today. Her extensive research in the subject of Prenuptial Agreements for the Prevention of Get-Refusal has been documented in her Master's thesis in the Talmud Department of Bar-Ilan University. Through her lectures and discussion groups held in Israel and abroad, she raises the awareness of the Jewish world regarding the subject of women's status and self-actualization in Judaism, specifically addressing the complexity of Jewish divorce today.
This project, coordinated by Ms. Rachel Levmore, provides assistance to all Jews who are in need of help in achieving a Jewish divorce, male or female, from every walk of life, from Israel and from abroad.

Dr. Rachel Levmore, the director of the Agunah and Get-Refusal Prevention Project of the International Young Israel Movement in Israel and the Jewish Agency, said that "the stakes have never been higher than right now" for the future approach of Jewish law on personal status issues, due to the large number of rabbinical justices the coming committee will have to appoint.
