Dayanim and Rabonim gathered Monday night to try and resolve the serious question asked for many years of how to write Gitten in Lakewood, according to a report in Israeli website, JDN.
Joining together to weigh in on the matter were Harav Yecheskel Roth Shlita, Harav Yitzchok Stein and other notable Rabbonim and Poskim. The discussion was to discuss the old question and how to write Gitten in Lakewood.
Seemingly, for may years the tradition in Lakewood was not to write any Gitten in Lakewood because of a defining mandatory requirement within
the Gett to record a permanent physical feature in the earth in the vicinity of that city, and being unable to know which river in the case of Lakewood is the closest to Lakewood.
This ongoing situation has caused much trouble and heartache for couples looking to file for a Gett and forces them to seek out other towns with a Bais Din established for writing a Gett.
The meeting continued for a long time with all the Rabonim referring to maps and notes in the hope of resolving this all important issue. There was much conversation discussed in the ensuing Halachik debate as all those assembled expressed his opinion in regard to the question.
Members of the Lakewood Bais Din under the auspices of Horav Yisroel Aryeh Knopfler, Rosh Bais Din, met Monday Night in Boro-to discuss the issue, the report says.
The Rabonim implied that they would all invest immediate attention and
effort to help resolve this question quickly, and after many years hopefully resolve this situation of not being able to write Gitten in Lakewood
