The Three Weeks: Spiritual Growth for Women

July 19, 2011

One of Israel’s most influential woman speakers, Rabbanit Yemima Mizrachi of Jerusalem, spoke at the Seymour J. Abrams Orthodox Union Jerusalem World Center to a standing-room only crowd of women on “Spiritual Growth for Women During the “Three Weeks”. The presentation, part of the new women’s initiative held at the OU Israel Center, L’Ayla, was dedicated in memory of Hirsh Mendel ben Zalman and Rochel Miriam.

Rabbanit Mizrachi, an Israeli lawyer and well-known lecturer, has attracted hundreds of women from all around the country to her shiurim, and gives divrei Torah for women each week on various radio stations in Israel. The Rabbanit has become a regular visitor for the OU Israel L’Ayla Women’s Initiative, though she rarely addresses English-speaking audiences.

According to Mrs. Rivka Segal, director of L’Ayla, “The OU Israel Center is proudly attuned to the needs of the English speaking community. Rabbanit Mizrachi speaks to the heart of women of all ages and backgrounds with her humor and insight.”

Rabbanit Mizrachi is scheduled to speak again for L’Ayla at the OU Center on Monday, September 5.
