The Laws of Menstrual Impurity (Niddah)

Hosted By: Drisha

In this five-part, text-intensive course explore some of the foundational questions about Hilkhot (the Jewish laws of) Niddah: where do these halakhot come from? How do women enter and exit Niddah status? What are the parameters of a couple’s physical relationship while a woman is in Niddah? This course is open to women at every stage of life who want to explore the laws of Niddah from the sources.
