Halachic Policy


Please read carefully: The goal of this site is to provide information and enhance the understanding of issues in Jewish law related to taharat hamishpacha (the laws of marital life) and women's health, not to replace the personal contact needed to provide an actual halachic ruling [psak]. This internet service does not preclude, override or replace the psak of any rabbinical authority. It is the responsibility of the questioner to inform us of any previous consultation or ruling. As even slight variation in circumstances may have halachic consequences, views expressed concerning one case may not be applied to other, seemingly similar cases. Should you wish advice on obtaining a direct halachic ruling, we can be contacted via –
