Web Expands Opportunities for New Yoatzot Fellows
With 20 Yoatzot Halacha newly certified in the U.S. and Israel this summer, 142 practicing Yoatzot Halacha are assisting and advising women and families worldwide. This summer, Nishmat also enrolled 26 new Yoatzot Halacha Fellows: 12 through Nishmat’s Keren Ariel Program in Israel and 14 through Nishmat’s Miriam Glaubach Center (MGC) in the U.S. What’s different this year? Keren Ariel adopted the MGC model of on-line study so that Israelis in outlying areas, such as Yerucham in the south and Haifa in the north, can participate. Two London-based Fellows and an Australian, log on to MGC’s ZOOM online classes and travel to the U.S. when the American Fellows meet on-site.
