Divorce certificate signed by:

R. Yosef Shalom Elyashiv (1910 – 2012), Haredi rabbi and posek (arbiter of Jewish law) who lived in Jerusalem. Until his death at the age of 102, R. Elyashiv was the paramount leader Lithuanian-Haredi community, and many Ashkenazi Jews regarded him as the posek ha-dor, the contemporary leading authority on halakha, or Jewish law.

He spent most of his days engaged in Talmudical study, and delivered lectures in Talmud and Shulkhan Arukh at a local synagogue in the Meah Shearim area in Jerusalem where he lived. He received supplicants from all over the world and answered the most complex Halakhic inquiries

R. Bezalel Zolty (1920–1982), chief rabbi (Ashkenazi) of Jerusalem. R. Zolty was born in Stavitsk, district Lomza, Poland, and at the age of seven immigrated with his family to Erez Israel where he studied at the Ez Hayyim and the Hebron yeshivot. In 1951 he was appointed a member of the District bet din of Tel Aviv, and the following year to the Jerusalem bet din. In 1956 he was appointed a member of the Supreme bet din of Israel. An outstanding rabbinical scholar, R. Zolty served as head of the Bet ha-Talmud of Yad ha-Rav Maimon from 1966 to 1974 and later as the head of the Yad Aharon Yeshivah, and has given courses in the important yeshivot in Israel. His first published work, Ginzei ha-Sifrei on the Sifrei was published in 1948 and his responsa, Mishneh Ya'avitz on Hoshen Mishpat (1963) which gained him the Rabbi Kook Prize of the Municipality of Tel Aviv, was followed by a volume of the same name on the Laws appertaining to the Festivals in the Orah Hayyim (1976). In 1977 he was appointed chief rabbi (Ashkenazi) of Jerusalem.

R. Yaakov Hai Zion Ades (Hebrew: יעקב חי ציון עדס‎, February 24, 1898 – July 19, 1963), also spelled Adas or Adess, was a Sephardi Hakham, Rosh Yeshiva, and Rabbinical High Court judge. As rosh yeshiva of Porat Yosef Yeshiva in Jerusalem, he raised thousands of students, including Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, Sephardic Chief Rabbi of Israel; Rabbi Ben Zion Abba Shaul, rosh yeshiva of Porat Yosef; and Rabbi Yehuda Hakohen Rabin, Chief Rabbi of Bukharan Jewry in Israel.
