The Beth Din of America is a rabbinical court that arbitrates and mediates commercial, communal and family disputes, arranges Jewish divorces, resolves contested Get and agunah cases, and issues halachic personal status determinations (including certifications of Jewish status).
Since its inception in 1960, the Beth Din of America has been recognized as one of the nation’s pre-eminent rabbinic courts.
Firmly anchored in the principles of halacha (Jewish law), the Beth Din has earned a reputation for conducting its affairs with confidentiality, competence, fairness, and integrity.
The Beth Din is affiliated with the Rabbinical Council of America and the Orthodox Union. It is funded by a combination of fees for services, private donations, and support by communal endowments and institutions. Whenever the Beth Din acts as a neutral in a dispute among parties, the Beth Din discloses to the parties all known potential conflicts of interest.
