Jordana Topp

Yoetzet Halacha


Dr. Jordana Topp is the Los Angeles Community Yoetzet Halacha. She is a mom, the Rebbetzin of Beth Jacob Congregation, and a dentist, treating patients who have limited access to care. Jordana studied at Michlalah and Nishmat seminaries in Jerusalem and is a graduate of Stern College, Rutgers Dental School, and Nishmat’s Yoetzet Halacha Program.

The Yoetzet Halacha Los Angeles Program is under the auspices of BDJ, BJ, YICC and YULA Girls High School.

Yoatzot Halacha are female halachic advisors trained at Nishmat’s Keren Ariel Halachic Institute in Jerusalem. They are certified by a panel of Orthodox Rabbis to be resources for other women with questions regarding Taharat Hamishpacha, laws related to women and Mikvah. The role of a Yoetzet Halacha was created to help any woman who is more comfortable discussing these personal issues with another woman.

During their two-year fellowship, each Yoetzet Halacha devotes more than 1,000 hours to Talmudic and Halachic study, with a co-curriculum on the topics of gynecology, fertility, psychology and sexuality led by medical and health professionals. Following comprehensive examinations administered by a panel of distinguished Roshei Kollel and Poskim, graduates of Nishmat’s Keren Ariel Institute are awarded the title of Yoetzet Halacha.
