How do I, a woman, go about finding a personal Rav (in Israel)? I see that you have addressed the question for men but not for women. We don't have the same opportunities for meeting Rabbanim as do men. We are told: ask a Rav who knows you well. But I don't know how to find someone who I'll get to know well and they'll get to know me well.

  • Welcome to Mi Yodeya, user13619. This site is not designed for every good question. Questions that are primarily opinion based, are discouraged. This question would seem to qualify. Some suggestions would include, seeking rabbis associated with your beit k'nesset, and /or asking friends if they know a rabbi who they feel meets their needs. Hatslaha rabba! – mevaqesh Nov 7 '16 at 1:35
  • "I see that you have addressed the question for men" Where? Which opportunities do men have that women don't? – Double AA Nov 7 '16 at 2:41
  • @DoubleAA judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/47398/… the question doesn't ask about men, but evidently the OP feels that the answers most focused on men. – mevaqesh Nov 7 '16 at 2:43
  • @mevaqesh I don't see how that's not a dupe – Double AA Nov 7 '16 at 2:46
