A ' is a divorce document, which according to Jewish Law, must be presented by a husband to his wife to effect their divorce. The essential text of the ' is quite short: "You are hereby permitted to all men," i.e., the wife is no longer a married woman, and the laws of adultery no longer apply. The ' also returns to the wife the legal rights that a husband holds in regard to his wife in a Jewish marriage.
