Rabbinic Approbations

Rabbi Shmuel Halevi Wosner, Zt’’l (Rav Moshe Shaul Klein, Shlita)
“It is an absolute obligation to act in accordance with medical recomendations of healthcare. Therefore, women must undergo regular medical examinations in order to detect the particular diseases from which they suffer (chas v’shalom), as experience has proven that early detection improves the chances of recovery. B’shvilaych is doing a great thing by providing for patients who seek medical treatment in accordance with the way of Torah….”

Rabbi Chaim Pinchas Scheinberg, Zt’’l
“Due to their many responsibilities, many women neglect themselves, …leading to poor health, illness and death. This is due to the lack of [medical service] that is sensitive to religious women’s needs. [Bishvilaych], created especially for these women, will surely aid and save many women’s lives.”

Rabbi Yitzchak Tuvia Weiss, Shlita
“…providing vital medical care to women with sensitivity to their concerns for modesty, [B’shvilaych] provides a great and important benefit to the city of Yerushalayim. Great is the merit of those who take part in this great mitzvah… They will surely be blessed both spiritually and physically, with good health and success in all of their endeavors.”

Rabbi Moshe Halberstam, Zt”l
“[Bishvilaych] will provide great benefits… and it is a great mitzvah to take part in this in any possible way. May we all pray that those who are good messengers will be blessed with health, salvation and all goodness.”

Rabbi Moshe Sternbuch, Shlita
“I support and encourage this special center… This is a matter of life and death and will bring great benefit..”

Rabbi Shmuel Auerbach, Shlita
“…I ask all to come and help [Bishvilaych]… All those helping in this great mitzvah will be blessed with nachas from their children, and lives filled with health and happiness.”
