Sderot Religious Court

Rabbinical Court--Beit Din

The Yeshivat Hesder Sderot services the southern communities with its Rabbinical Court for monetary issues. Sitting on the Beit Din are our Rosh Yeshiva, Rav Dovid Fendel, Rav Dror Tawil, the Rosh Kollel and Rav Ariel Bar-Eli - a Ram (lecturer) in the Yeshiva. The need for a Rabbinical Court stemmed from a growing demand by local residents, who found it inconvenient to travel out of the area. Being the only such Beit Din in the region of Sderot, we are able to provide a much needed service to the community.

The inauguration ceremony for the Rabbinical Court at the Yeshiva was attended by many prominent Rabbis and public figures. An eloquent speech was made by Rav Asher Weiss, who emphasized the importance of this Court and its valuable role in serving the general public.

The questions to the Court are regarding many facets of life, but are primarily monetary related. The Rabbis receive and answer questions concerning financial issues through the "Kipa" internet site.
