MikvahMinder is proud to announce that we have received an endorsement from Rabbi Fishel Jacobs of Kfar Chabad.  (Click here to view the endorsement from Rabbi Jacobs.)

Rabbi Jacobs is the author of seven non-fiction books, including acclaimed works on difficult areas of practical Talmudic law, in use worldwide. For over a decade, he acted as the Tel Aviv University campus chaplain (Chabad).


Jacobs was perhaps the first American ordained by the head rabbis of Israel. He holds a PhD (equivalency) from the Israel Dept. of Religion, and completed training as a Rabbinic attorney.


He served as a lieutenant in an Israel army combat engineering unit, on active duty during the entire Gulf War.


Rabbi Jacobs retired from the Israel Prison Service in 2005, where he was the only American staff officer, a Major, serving as a prison chaplain and hand-to-hand combat instructor.

He is the author of many books dealing with the subject of family purity (Taharas HaMishpacha) including Family Purity : A Guide to Marital Fulfillment, and Z'manim.
