Join us for the first female responsa project – Questions in Jewish law answered by the Rabbaniyot –female Torah scholars -of the Beit Hillel rabbinic organization.
An Orthodox, innovative, serious, online feminine response to your questions.
Thanks to your support we will be able to answer a real need.
US donations are tax deductible.
Beit Hillel has aimed to promote woman's Torah scholarship since its inception.
Women have increasingly turned to Beit Hillel during the past few years,
searching for female scholars to answer their halachic questions.
In the past year we held a pilot program online in which girls, women (and men) asked questions touching upon all aspects of religious daily life, addressing them specifically to our female Torah scholars.
The project succeeded beyond all expectations!
Hundreds of questions were submitted; all responses were authored by our Rabbaniyot; and we came to the understanding that our project, Meshivat Nefesh, provides a real solution!
At this point in time we are hard at work, building a unique and innovative platform on the web.
“Meshivat Nefesh -- Responsa of Rabbaniyot”
- First of its kind in the world!
Leading Rabbaniyot, female Torah scholars, will respond to your questions on all aspects of the Jewish life.
The responders in the “Meshivat Nefesh” spent many years studying in high-level Torah and Jewish law institutes, as well as having extensive practical experience as educators.
Each response is professionally addressed by a number of the female scholars, a Jewish law and education advisory committee, and when necessary – an expert psychologist, specially trained for this project.
Our responders regularly attend educational seminars that deal with the most relevant and hot topics of the day.
Your donations to this campaign will allow us to create the website, enlarge the number of female responders, invest in a continuous, in-depth training curriculum for the responders, as well as to continue to insure that each and every individual gets the exact response, personally tailored to their needs.
We are aiming to raise 280,000 NIS. (approximately 78,000 USD)
The Meshivat Nefesh responsa project stems from the lively halachic discourse that takes place in the Beit Hillel organization between rabbis and rabbaniyot
This initiative provides a service for women of all ages welcoming them to a home where they can ask all their questions.
We, in Meshivat Nefesh, promise to provide fast, accurate responses of the highest quality.
At this point in time, all responsa are in Hebrew. Nevertheless, with G-d’s help and your support, we will be able to expand to additional languages, thus providing an inclusive service for the world wide Jewish society.
Who are we?
Meshivat Nefesh is a project of 'Beit Hillel - Attentive Spiritual Leadership'.
Beit Hillel has a membership of over 150 National-Zionist rabbis and rabbaniyot – female Torah scholars – from all corners of Israel who serve as meaningful Torah leaders.
The Beit Hillel organization arose from within a need to raise a moderate voice of Torah leadership; to inspire and lead discourse within Jewish Orthodox life that is attentive and enlightening within the public and social arena.
We need your help!
Please join and assist us in creating the “Meshivat Nefesh - Responsa of Rabbaniyot” website and strengthening this important initiative.
Support us and be part of this innovative project which enhances the world of woman's Torah.
