A report is circulating that Rav Shlomo Aviner rejects prenuptial agreements. I have confirmation from him and permission to publicize that he was speaking exclusively about a proposed prenuptial agreement in Israel, which differs substantively from the American halachic prenup, which was approved by Rav Zalman Nechemiah Goldberg, among others. The primary difference is that the proposed Israeli prenuptial agreement includes multiple explicit references to “divorce,” while the American version does not. According to Rav Goldberg, that is a crucial difference.
Rav Pinchas Shapiro, author of Responsa Brisi Shalom, sent my contact a responsum explaining his concerns about the Israeli prenuptial agreement and how it differs from the American.
