Rabbanit Henkin invited to the Jerusalem Municipality in honor of International Women’s Day

In honor of International Women's Day, Rabbanit Henkin was invited by the Jerusalem Municipality to participate in a forum of trailblazing Israeli women leaders. When asked "What tip do you give women who want to advance a cause?" Rabbanit Henkin stated, "if you see that something's missing—- empower yourself to create a solution. Without fanning flames and making a lot of noise–get the job done." She related the story of Yoatzot Halacha; a critical need in women's lives was not being addressed. A Rabbinic consensus was achieved by answering a need, not waving a flag. Today, Yoatzot Halacha are a resource for tens of thousands of women world-wide.
