Strictly orthodox rabbis are fighting claims that a woman's marriage is invalid because her husband was forced to issue a get under duress.
Friends of her ex-husband have started a campaign claiming he gave it after he had been kidnapped.
But the Union of Hebrew Congregations dismissed the claims and insisted he had been paid nearly £16,000 to give it.
"This man abandoned his family and now wants to get revenge and stir up trouble," said a UOHC source.
Neither the man or the woman can be identified but he is an American living in New York and she lives in London.
