I use the Puah Institute mainly when i am pregnant. there are Rabbys in the Puah Institute who are available on the phone every day and are ready to answer any question! They do it for free! completely no charge. In addition, I told families who have fertility issues to talk to this institute. I know they are a big help. In conclusion, the Puah Institute does an "Avodat Kodesh"!!!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

any time I contacted them!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

let them have more hours, more time to help the families who need help!

אני נעזרתי מספר פעמים במכון פועה. בכל פעם בה פניתי למכון, קיבלתי יחס חם ועזרה מכל הלב! מקומות רבים דורשים תשלום גבוה על מתן עזרה מכל סוג שהוא, ואף לדברים קטנים ביותר, לעומתם, מכון פועה לא דורש כלום!!! הרבנים ענו לשאלותיי בטלפון ובמקרה הצורך הרב גם התקשר אלי בעצמו! המון תודה למכון פועה! המכון שנותן ולא מקבל! שירבו גופים כמותכם!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

מקצועיות!!!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

מדהימים! רבנים עם ידע וניסיון רב! בעלי רצון לעזור!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

אין לי תשובה מסויימת, אבל ברור לי שהמכון היה מוסיף עוד טוב בעולם!

Puah Institute is a fabulous organization that helps couples all over the world with infertility issues. The issues that these couples are struggling with are not only physically challenging, but emotionally and psychologically challenging as well. The people who work at Puah handle their clients in such a manner that they feel they are part of a safe, loving and supportive family. The Rabbis and other staff members at Puah Institute are so passionate and genuine in all that they do- it is a pleasure to volunteer at Puah!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Working in their office. Thank G-d I have not needed their help personally, although I know many couples who do need this type of help.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give them more money! They need it desperately!

I volunteered at Puah recently since I had some free time and was amazed with what I saw! The staff there dedicate their lives to helping others that they don't even know! Sooo much time and effort they happily donate to a cause they all firmly believe in. I personally believe they feel blessed and rewarded to be in the position to help those who are in need of their multitude of services. They really help take away some of the pain and doubts from what is a very painful and humbling experience. I would definitely recommend calling them if you are in need of their wonderful services.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

having new appreciation for life. I realize now that 1 in 6 have issues with infertility, and some people unfortunately have to go through a lot of pain in order to be blessed with a healthy new child.

המכון מסייע לנו בייעוץ זוגי, עזרה הלכתית, עזרה כללית בכל הנושאים הקושורים לנישואים, ייעוץ רפואי שיעורים הלכתיים והכנה לחיי משפחה וזוגיות

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

הייעוץ שנתנו לנו בתחילת הנישואים עזר לנו מאוד בכל חיינו הזוגיים שאחר כך

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

אם זה אפשרי, להכשיר יותר רבנים משיבים

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

עזרה הלכתית מיידית בכל נושא שקשור לטהרה ובדיקות רפואיות מומלצות

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

הצוות קשוב מאוד וסבלני, עונה תמיד בנחת ובפירוט, ידע רפואי מדהים! וגם ידע הלכתי מרשים מאוד

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

מארגן הרבה יותר כנסים לחיי משפחה וזוגיות, קורסים והשתלמויות למדריכי כלות וחתנים, מרחיב את מעגל הרבנים המשיבים, וגם את מעגל התחומים שבהם אפשר להתייעץ עם רבני המכון

Ways to make it better...

לעיתים זמן ההמתנה ארוך

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

להרחיב את תחום הפעילות שלהם לכל מגזרי הציבור בישראל (חרדי דתי לאומי מסורתי וחילוני)

One thing I'd also say is that...

אין ספק שהמכון היה ועודנו פריצת דרך אדירה בכל מה שקשור לפוריות וזוגיות

I spoke with the head of the institute personally. He told me he would look into my question. I called back and he had an answer for me. Because of this advice we went to see a doctor and almost exactly nine months later we had a baby boy.

מכון פועה עוזר ודואג לכלל ישראל במסירות רבה. למכון שיעורים וכנסים מענינים וחשובים רבים בהם לקחנו חלק בעלי ואני. כאשר רצינו להתייעץ התייחסו אלינו באדיבות ובסבלנות. כל מי שנתקל בבעיות פריון יודע שזאת הכתובת הכי טובה שם יקבל מידע מקצועי ואמין ויחס טוב.

המכון סייע לי ולבן זוגי בתחום הפוריות. שלחו אותנו לאנשי המקצוע המתאימים, וללא ספק בזכות מכון פועה, השליחים הנאמנים של הקדוש ברוך הוא, זכינו לשלושה ילדים מקסימים

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

באופן אישי זכינו להביא לעולם שלושה ילדים בזכות פעילות המכון, עם יחס אישי מדהים.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

אנשים נפלאים, שיוצרים קשר אישי ונותנים את ההרגשה שאתה באמת הכי חשוב להם.

היו חששות לגבי משהו מסויים והרבנים המתנדבים באירגון פועה היו לעזר ואחיסמך והרגיעוני, וע"כ תודתי. כמו"כ אני יודע על זוגות נוספים שנעזרים באירגון ויה"ר "שלא יצטרכו עמך זה לזה" ויבוא משיח צדקנו במהרה בימינו ממש.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

מכיון שהייתי בתחילת נשואי ונושא הפוריות היה מאד בולט והיו לי חששות, אנשי המכון הרגיעוני וע"כ תודתי

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

רגיעה נפשית

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

האנשים שענו לי בטלפון היו נחמדים ומקצועים מאד
