The Ruth and Emanuel Rackman Center for the Advancement of Women's Status

The Ruth and Emanuel Rackman Center for the Advancement of Women's Status, operating within the framework of the Faculty of Law of Bar-Ilan University, was founded in 2001 in order to eradicate discrimination against women and strengthen their status in Israeli society by translating academic knowledge and research into practical steps and activities. The Center operates a legal assistance program for women in matters of family, and is engaged in public activities, in research, and in the empowerment of women. The Center implements the vision of Rabbi Emanuel Rackman for the advancement of women's rights in Israel and the improvement of women's status in family law and the Jewish Halakha.
