As women, we are required to learn halacha in order to fulfill it properly. The more detailed one's knowledge of halacha, the more likely one is to be able to fulfill the will of Hashem. Without serious knowledge of halacha, a woman may not even be aware of which sheilos need to be presented to a posek. Rabbi Gefen's course ... provides women with a level of knowledge and understanding of the halacha from the primary sources to the halacha l'maasei (practical halacha). The depth of the learning is gratifying. Participating in this program has raised my awareness of the need to apply the halacha in situations that would have escaped my notice in the past. The shiurim are clear and there is plenty of opportunity for questions. Rabbi Gefen is available for questions via email in between shiurim as well. I am not aware of any other opportunity available for women to learn halacha at this level. I look forward to receiving the sources and hearing the shiur every week!

It's been a real pleasure to be part of the ... program. I look forward to the source sheets and shiur every week. I have an increased appreciation of the halachos and how to apply them in daily life. The material has abundant sources with varying opinions and a halacha lmaaseh section. The shiurim are a elucidation of the source sheets and an opportunity to have our questions answered. I highly recommend the program!
The shiur is well focused ... and of course the more prepared I am the more I get out of it. Questions from the participants are handled well, and we all get a lot out of the shiur. Using Zoom allows us access to a shiur that we wouldn't be able to access in person.
