Synopsis: 

Dr. Susan Aranoff explains the way in which the Rackman Beit Din uses kiddushei ta?ut (a marriage based on a mistake) to free agunot without a get. She also refutes the three main objections that others have to the use of this method and comes to the conclusion that the Rackman Beit Din is very careful to analyze each case carefully and annuls a marriage only when it is halakhically acceptable.
