Knowing that we would have to go through infertility treatments, was very stressful. Puah was there to help us through every step of the process, from finding the right doctor, to being there when we needed them and answering all our questions. They have made it possible for my wife and I to become parents!

change the world! With every baby they help make, another world is created! There are thousands of families, like ours how have been helped, but there are much more that need Puah's help- and thousands of new babys that can be born from it!

If there offices in the US were bigger. I had to call Israel many times to get help, or to answer some questions. That will come if they had more money at their disposal!

After 7 years of trying we heard of a "religous" way to overcome infertility. Years after we had childred we are finally starting to understand how important it was that the creation of the child begins with the thoughts and deeds of the parents at the creation of the seed. Only now - 4 years after our children have been born - do I see the amazing results of the "goodness" that was started at the begining. If for no other reason than simply making GD a bigger partner in the creation you should go to PUAH and learn how GD wants you to have children. The fact that they NEVER ask for a penny (nor hint, nor guilt, nor ever comment about it) even makes the experience more rewarding. They are there to help with one of the biggest mitzvahs in the world. I am honored that I am finally financially strong enough to share in their burden and thankful that they were available to help me and my wife to HAPPILY overcome our "challenges" and see, live and love the JOY AND SIMCHA of being parents. We were succesful on the first attempt with our beutiful LEIEL and double succesfull on our second attempt with Eitan and Linor. I am currently in the process of trying to ask my wife to go for three ... lets just say we are talking about it with a Smile - hers much bigger than mine. You can do it, we are proof, Puah will show you how.

The Great!

I have observed the Puah Institute help hundreds of infertile couples deal with their dream and struggle of having a family. As a Rabbi who has dealt with infertility and as a dean of a university that works with community Rabbis around the world I have observed how the Puah Institute trains Rabbis to help their congregants through these difficult issues. Many couples have had children due to the efforts of the Puah Institute. The Puah Institute's Rabbinic staff are spiritual guides, well educated in areas of reproductive medicine, selfless and extremly talented.

My husband and I made aliya in August 2008 after being married for a year. It wasn't until we got to Israel that we started trying to start a family, only to find that we couldn't do so without going through the process of IVF. This was a real shock to us and was very hard information to receive when we had just moved countries and left our families behind. Whilst we had their support over the phone and on their visits for the most part we were in Israel finding everything out for ourselves and in a language that was very new to us. Puah were with us throughout the process. When we were just finding out and had many questions we were given the time of day from Rav Gidon Weitzman. Any question that we had he would answer with patience and warmth. Whether our questions were halachic or even things about the treatments that we didn't understand he was always willing and happy to speak with us. Moreover the women that were sent to the hospital to watch over our procedures were amazing. Their approach and sensitivity was perfect. They were very warm and caring and made us feel at ease that everything would go well. The way the institute is set out is very conducive to the work they do. If the wait is too long whilst trying to call a Rav the secretaries take your name and number and I was always contacted back within an hour or so. Everything we needed was well know by the secretaries, so if we had general questions we weren't ever passed to the wrong people but they would tell us exactly who we needed to be in touch with and put us through if possible. Finally the ease at which everything can be arranged made a somewhat stressful process have no additional pressure. We could call the night before to arrange for someone to be at the hospital and never had a doubt in our mind that someone wouldn't be there. Without Puah I don't know where we would be. Probably still running around in a frenzy trying to find out all the answers to our questions. Thank you very much, Naomi and David Kaplan.

" IN a community very insular and private as ours is, it is a formidable task to be sensitive enough, medically well connected enough, knowledgeable enough in Jewish Law and its intricacies, and trained in human psychology enough, to be able to reach out and be of assistance . Yet Puah seems to have mastered the skills and necessary factors to serve a segment of the Jewish Community that might otherwise be forced to live with the sadness of childlessness. With much wisdom and kindness couples are treated with the utmost dignity, and can have their hopes of being parents one day restored. Being part of a family where 2 of my siblings gave birth through IVF treatments, I appreciate what it means. Our community is blessed to have such dedicated , serious people devoted to bringing the latest technology "down to earth". - Show quoted text -
