Shayla is an online Halakhic resource run by graduates of Hilkhata – Matan Jerusalem’s five-year Advanced Halakhic Institute. Shayla answers a growing need for an accessible go-to address for Jewish women and students seeking Halakhic guidance.
Our Halakhic Responders have extensive backgrounds in Torah learning. They are all Torah educators actively involved in their communities. Answers are reviewed by the editorial Halakhic board: Harav HaDayan Ariel Holland, Rabbanit Surale Rosen and Rav Yehoshua Mayerson.
A Teshuva on: Can I give non cooked products for Shalach Manot? I feel that there is so much food going round on Purim that’s getting wasted, since people can’t eat everything they’re given. I would rather give rice/oatmeal/quinoa/olive oil for people to use later.
