I am the administrator of Yeshiva.org.il ask the rabbi section. we receive many Jewish halachic questions (Jewish law) about marital relationships from around the world. Rabbi Gideon Weitzman from machon Puah, answers them very clearly. It is a great honer for us to use Machon Puah's services.

הקשר שלי למכון הוא בהשתתפות בכנס הארצי של רפואה והלכה. נהנתי עד מאד מכושר הארגון והתוכן המגוון שהועבר במהלך היום הגדוש.

Puah has helped many of my friends have the babies they could only dream of. Personally I have needed some phone consultations on "tweaking" my fertility, and the Rav who answered was always kind and tried to provide the answer which would most suit my needs.

To whom it may concern: My daughter and son in law were struggling through years of infertility. While they chose not to discuss their problem with friends or family, my heart was breaking from the terrible frustration of waiting. I can only imagine the suffering that they kept to themselves. Since I have become an avid reader of the fascinating PUAH column in the Jewish Press, I decided to call their US office. The person I spoke to was caring and understanding of my pain, however she encouraged me not to bring the matter into the open with my children (who clearly wished to keep it private). I listened to her words, bore my heartache in silence, and was recently rewarded by blessed news from them. PUAH has a stellar name in the field of infertility in Israel and all over the US. Their scope of knowledge and their depth of caring for every couple going through this torment is unsurpassed. People from Canada, England,and the US temporarily relocate to Israel for Puah's help. They are in the forefront of all the newest treatments and techniques and through the specialists that they work with, (and G-d's Help), have the ability to overturn huge amounts of sorrow into blessing. Their success rate is probably unsurpassed throughout the world.

Puah Institute answered my personal questions in a very timely manner. It was very comforting to find such knowledgeable experts in halachot to share our issues with.

Puah has been so helpful to the kallah teachers in The Sephardic community in Brooklyn. They have professionals come to talk to us about issues of infertility and other subjects that are so helpful for kallah teachers to know in order to guide our kallahs properly. From the sessions we have had with Rabbi Weitzman and Dr. Grazi we gained some invaluable information that we are able to give over to our kallahs that has really made a difference. Thank you Puah!Bonnie Mansour

as a Rabbi of a comunity i had contact with puah regarding a soldier who got wounded in his fertility organs. The soldier was engaged and the problem was raised by the bride's family. Rabbi Bourshtein of Puah spoke with both parties explained the situation calmed down the frights and promised aid ween needed. The marriage took place and as far as i know Puah is now leading the couple on their way to maternity.
