Yoatzot Halacha

Miriam Glaubach Center

Miriam Glaubach Center

In 2006, Dr. Felix Glaubach established Nishmat's Miriam Glaubach Center to pay honor to his cherished wife, Dr. Miriam Glaubach. The mission of the Miriam Glaubach Center is to enhance women's observance of the laws of taharat hamishpacha and bring the expertise and compassion of Nishmat's Yoatzot Halacha to Jewish communities across North America.

Nishmat's Miriam Glaubach Center provides unique programs and resources for individuals, families, synagogues and mikvaot, ranging from Shabbat scholars-in-residence and Yoetzet-in-residence workshops, to taharat hamishpacha "refresher" courses, Women's Health and Halacha Days and other classes, lectures and programs tailored to an individual community's needs.

To meet U.S. demand for Yoatzot Halacha, American Friends of Nishmat inaugurated the U.S. Yoatzot Halacha Fellows Program (YH-US) in September 2011, through Nishmat’s Miriam Glaubach Center. For more information about qualifications for acceptance and course of study, please contact Program Director, Yoetzet Halacha Atara Eis, at atara@afnishmat.org.

On October 27, 2013, the first U.S.-educated Yoatzot graduated, bringing the total Nishmat Yoatzot Halacha to 85 world-wide!
