  • This service is not meant to replace or substitute the need for consulting a competent Orthodox Rabbi. This service is meant to benefit people in locations that do not have access to a Rabbi. It is also meant to benefit those who have access to a Rabbi to achieve a better understanding of the halachic background so that they can properly present the question to the Rabbi.
  • We are told many times “Aseh Lecha Rav” “make for yourself a teacher” (Avot 1:6) as a lesson that we should keep with us throughout over lives. It is important to establish a relationship with a knowledgeable and accessible Orthodox Rabbi to help address all halachic questions. Such a relationship can help one foster spiritual growth and maintain a proper halachic lifestyle.
  • For any halachic questions please email us at ask@halachipedia.com. We will try to respond within 24 hours.
  • Please write in your question if you don’t mind your question being placed anonymously in the archives of questions and answers.
  • Halachipedia’s policy: As a matter of policy, Halachipedia’s Ask the Rabbi service will not address questions that have to do with marital issues, family purity, or matters of conflict but we hope to do our best to try to refer these questions to the closest most relevant Rabbi. Additionally, note that Halachipedia bears no financial liability in providing practical answers and advice. Lastly, Halachipedia is committed and dedicated to your privacy. Your name and email address will be not shared with anyone besides Halachipedia.
