Check out this link for more info, but here is a case where progressive Jews can join the Orthodox in putting pressure on a husband who refuses to give his wife a get, or Jewish divorce. As long as he refuses, she can't remarry. There are better ways of preventing this situation from arising in the first place, but they aren't accepted in the Orthodox world. The boycott is.

Don't buy from

(And please note that websites with other spellings of "sukkah" or "sukkot" are not related.)

It's amazing how common this is in Israel (according to L's cousins who live there, one of whom has a husband who refused for many years to give her a get). To me it's extraordinary that no better mechanism has been developed for dealing with the problem. Or maybe there are ways of addressing it that I don't know about.
