Episode #1 of Dear Yoetzet Podcast


How do you know when you’re with the right person? How important are attraction and physical chemistry, and how do you measure them in a relationship without touch? What can we learn from Torah’s rules around Niddah and Negiah? And who can we trust as we figure this all out?

Our letter writer asks all of these and other important questions. Join Yoetzet Halacha Lisa Septimus and her guest, Rachel Hercman, LCSW for a conversation about navigating dating in the religious community, learning to trust ourselves, and giving advice.
