There were many doubts for a number of hours on Thursday 2 Teves 5774 but despite the ex-husbands claims the get he gave was invalid, the Bnei Brak chasenah took place as planned.
YWN-ISRAEL reported that a divorcee with three children was set to marry a ben torah who is close to the Vishnitzer Rebbe Shlita. However, her ex-husband claimed his get was coerced and therefore invalid, insisting he never divorced his wife.
Dayanim and admorim were reviewing the case until shortly before the chasenah was set to take place and the psak halacha was the get was indeed valid and the woman was free to marry on Thursday night.
The story ends with a chasenah and the two were united in Bnei Brak in the presence of the Vishnitzer Rebbe Shlita and many rabbonim. There were many tears of joy as the two were united, and for many, seeing the rebbe dancing with the chosson was a moment of true joy as all doubts concerning the get of the kallah was pushed aside as gedolei yisrael were present to be part of the simcha.
