About Us

** Interested in subscribing to Rabbi Haim Ovadia's weekday emails on Jewish Law? Please send an email to rabbiovadia613@gmail.com with your full name, location, and a bit about yourself. How does a Rabbi weigh his responsibility to Jewish law, to the sensitivities of the people involved. Difficult questions are usually never black and white. We discuss intricate questions asked to Sephardic and Ashkanazi Rabbis of current and past generations and their responses. What was the philosophy behind their answers? Why were concessions made in special situations?

Strict is Lenient

OTD Under the Radar

A response to a post by a secretly off-the-Derekh woman. Discussing discrimination against women and the weapon used by those women who do not want to be vocal feminist. This weapon, holding off the mikveh, was invented by Talmudic era women, and a similar version emerged in Christian Europe in medieval times. The author of the post is right in her complaints, she indeed is one of many secret dissenters, and the rabbis should start listening to people's real problems.
