The Women's Health and Halacha Website
Women's Health and Halacha was created by Nishmat's Yoatzot Halacha under the supervision of Nishmat's rabbinic staff. The site is designed to provide straightforward, user-friendly, halachic and medical information to couples observing taharat hamishpacha, the Jewish laws of mikveh and niddah. Women's Health and Halacha includes:
- Over 150 articles on taharat hamispacha and women's health.
- Thousands of real questions and answers, posted anonymously.
- Ask the Yoetzet: submit questions online to a yoetzet halacha.
This Site Depends on You!
