Our Leadership

RABBANIT CHANA HENKIN

Founder & Dean of Nishmat

Rabbanit Chana Henkin, founder and Dean of NISHMAT, the Jeanie Schottenstein Center for Advanced Torah Study for Women in Jerusalem, is one of today's most acclaimed Jewish educators and a leader in redrawing the landscape of higher Torah learning and leadership for women. Together with her husband, noted halachic authority Rabbi Yehuda Henkin, Rabbanit Henkin created Jewish history's first Yoatzot Halacha, experts in women's health and halacha, who have since addressed more than 300,000 halachic questions from across the world. Her warmth and contagious love of learning have made her a sought-after lecturer in Jewish communities throughout the world and her innovations have won widespread rabbinic support and public acclaim.
