Signed in Love



      

This time of love, unity and mutual trust, is in fact the most suitable time for formulating a mutual agreement. While Jewish tradition perceives marriage as a supreme value, it recognizes the possibility of a different reality that requires being prepared ahead of time. Signing the Tzohar Prenuptial Agreement constitutes a guarantee for separation proceedings that are fair.

" The Tzohar Prenuptial Agreement is intended to guarantee that couples remain together out of choice, love and equality and not out of a lack of mutual respect. The Tzohar Prenuptial Agreement is signed before the wedding"

The essence of the "Agreement of Love" is to aid the couple to behave with mutual fairness during situations of crisis and distrust. The fact that we do not doubt the stability of your marriage must be emphasized. The underlying reason for our recommendation to sign is that if we all sign the agreement, those couples facing a crisis and who require assistance will be equipped with an agreement that will aid their behavior during this time.
Proverbially – We all buckle up in a safety belt prior to a journey despite the fact that we hope that we will not be involved in an accident. If we knew for sure that an accident would take place during any given journey, we would most certainly forgo taking that journey. Nonetheless, we buckle up and travel knowing that if we all buckle up –those of us who need a safety belt will be strapped in. While a safety belt in the vehicle does not prevent accidents, it minimizes the damage. This also applies to this agreement – while it does not prevent crises, it does substantially minimize the damage if, Heaven forbid there is a crisis.
The Ketubah does not relate to a situation in which there is a 'refusal to provide a "Get" (deed of divorce)'. Sometimes, the husband or wife is not prepared to give/receive the "Get." "The Agreement of Love" solves this problem via a section that obligates the spouse refusing to give/receive the Get to increased alimony payments to their partner. In this situation, each of the parties undertakes to pay the other, should the former delay the "Get" and, in fact, forces him/her to choose between releasing the spouse and a high payment for stubbornness.
The agreement can be signed in two ways:
1. Download the agreement.
Both spouses sign two copies (one for each spouse), the signed copy must be sent to Tzohar.
2. To come to Tzohar offices in order to prepare the agreement.
"The Agreement of Love" imparts the spouses with a halachnic tool called 'increased alimony.' Signing the agreement especially now, when there is full trust between the spouses provides them with absolute security.
In contrast, premarital agreements deal with the manner of dividing the property in the event of separation. The "Agreement of Love" includes a section that suggests signing a premarital agreement regarding property as well as turning to an external arbitrator for settling all property issues between the spouses.
While there are other agreements that suggest arbitration between the spouses or agreements with other halachnic solutions, they are not accepted by the rabbinic authorities in the Orthodox Camp.
The spouses - Should the spouses fail to agree on the identity of an arbitrator, the Chairperson of the Bar Association or the Chairperson of Tzohar will choose an external arbitrator. When signing the "Agreement of Love," the spouses determine which of these two options they prefer for appointing an arbitrator.
Signing the agreement would increase your chances of living happily with the clear knowledge that you have protection even in the case of an unfavorable situation when a crisis in the marriage erupts. Furthermore, and this is a major point, you can be partners in a social revolution that would aid other couples, who may be more likely to require this agreement.
Signing the agreement prior to the marriage, when trust between the spouses is at a peak, is highly worthwhile . in any event, this agreement can be signed after the marriage as well.
Yes, at any time that you desire. It is also possible to sign a new agreement, which stipulates the annulment of a previous agreement.




TZOHAR works to guarantee that all Jews in Israel have a meaningful and positive, halachic Jewish wedding, starting with the technical stages of filling in the necessary forms and authorizations to the actual ceremony under the Chuppa.

The late Belda Kaufman Lindenbaum who worked assiduously at advancing the status of religious women. Her determination, faith and overpowering personality were the driving force for the establishment of leading institutions for Torah education of women out of a desire to empower them and advance them to involvement and stations of status in Orthodox Jewry. Passed away on 23 Iyyar, 5775 (May 15, 2015).
"Happy are we! How goodly is our portion, how pleasant our lot, how beautiful our inheritance!"
