According to an email from GetORA.com, the owner of Succah.com is a recalcitrant husband. Although his wife has asked him, he will not grant her a get and therefore she cannot remarry. The Baltimore Beit Din has issued a seruv against him. Please keep this in mind when making your sukkot purchases this year.
According to Jewish law, a husband has to grant a wife a get, or divorce, to terminate a marriage. When a husband refuses to do so, the wife may become an agunah, a chained wife, who is stuck in the relationship and unable to remarry. Considerable pressure sometimes needs to be exerted by the community to get the husband to give a get.
GetORA is an organization working for the rights of agunot.
