Sponsor shuls across the Los Angeles Community

Over the past decade, the Los Angeles Yoetzet Initiative has become an integrally important part of our community. Today, Yoetzet Halacha Dr. Jordana Topp, like her predecessors, guides women through the intricacies of Taharat haMishpacha with sensitivity and privacy, and supports local women experiencing infertility, pregnancy loss, illness, and menopause. In addition to this very important individual contact, our Yoetzet program also offers wide-ranging educational programming. To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the Los Angeles Yoetzet Halacha Initiative, we ask that you partner with us in our mission to provide women from throughout our community access to this vital service: a woman able to answer questions and offer warm counsel in this sensitive area of halacha.
