Gefiltefish, mentsch1 etc: The most infamous heter mea rabanim is the one issued to Meir Kin who got around the condition of requiring a get to be deposited with a beis din, by having a non-conventional beis din collude with him in his scheme to be מעגן his first wife while allowing himself to marry a second wife. This beis din, never actually makes the get available for pickup by the first wife using a variety of tactics.

The current fragmented state of our communities where there is no centralized beis din and each person can claim that he left a get with a beis din that he found for his agenda, means that get refusal has now become a win-lose situation for the husband. CRG was meant to keep it a lose-lose proposition.

The sudden obsession with CRG and HMR is not about debating the finer points of Halacha. It’s about wickedness and evil dressed up as an innocent discussion.
