    So Important!!

    Rabbi Feigelstock is an amazing Rabbi. He works hard with you to help you find a halachicly acceptable solution. I only got a bracha from the Rebbe to go through with treatments after I showed the rebbe the three conditions that Rabbi Feigelstock said I had to keep in order for the procedure to be according to halacha. This happened about twenty four years ago. I recieved a Brocha from the Rebbe and Boruch hashem I have children today.

    Thank you

    Thank you

    Thank you and thank you again,. when first begining my journey with infertility i started without any knowledge of the halachic complications. I look back and am sad to say i have done things that were not so kosher just because we had no idea a Rav needed to be consulted. Both of these Rabonim are extremely knowledable and sensitive.
    May all couple waiting for this Bracha be bentched with children very soon.

    You’re talking about someone head and shoulders above the rest. There are also local experts in Boro Park, Rabbi Zinner can refer.

    Another great rabbi who has helped us tremendously was rabbi Chaim Brikman from sea gate. He goes above and beyond.

    Please careful when going to to a non-Lubaavitch rav on this topic. The rebbe held very strongly on certain issues and even thought it is fine for many other people, a Lubavitcher rav should be consulted.

    Finally educating our professionals- The GEDALIAH SOCIETY

    The Gedaliah Society (named for R’Gedaliah Schaffer, obm) featured Rabbi Feigelstock as its speaker this week at their monthly meeting. Kudos to Dr. Shloimy Minkowitz for making sure our own medical professionals learn halochos from a Lubavitcher perspective.

    Rabbi Brikman excellent too

    I too would like to add my appreciation for Rabbi Brikman. It was the best advice given to me from another Rov to contact Rabbi Brikman.

    א. אשה ממצפה רמון עברה טיפול להפריית מבחנה. לפני כן ביקשו היא ובעלה מהרבי ברכה להצלחה בזה, ולא נענו. משום מה, סברו שאכן קיבלו ברכה כזאת. העובר לא הצליח להתפתח. שוב החלו בטיפול מחדש, וביקשו ברכה שהפעם יהיה העובר לתינוק בריא ושלם. המענה שקיבלו באמצעות בית חב”ד המקומי, ביום כ”ג אלול תש”נ: “צילום מכתב הפוסק שהתיר זה. דיוק בטהרת המשפחה. פשיטא שאני לא כתבתי ברכה לעשות זה. אזכיר על הציון.” ב. תשובה באמצעות הרה”ג בן-ציון ליפסקר שליט”א, רבה של ערד, מיום כ”ז אדר תנש”א: “המותר על-פי התורה?” ג. לבני זוג שביקשו ברכה להפריית מבחנה, בתשובה למכתבו של הבעל: “כמדומה אסור… Read more »

    As other couples have mentioned, my husband and I feel tremendous gratitude and appreciation for Rabbi Ulman dedicated and respectful manor in which he he has helped us in our journey. There are so many details that couples do not know, so many road blocks and so many complex halachic questions that only very few Rabbis know the answers to. He has always been there, answered our calls , called us back, listened to us through tears and fears. He is a true chossid, giving so much of himself and expecting nothing in return. We are not part of his… Read more »

    Very important issue

    I’m glad this issue is getting a public forum. After years of trying unsuccessfully, and in consultation with our mashpia and rov, we are no longer trying. But the issue is really important; it can put tremendous stress on a couple, especially when siblings are popping out babies like nobody’s business.

    Aside for Rabbis Ulman & Feigelstock, they both trained two local Chabad Rabbis to help with infertility cases here in NY. They are:

    Rabbi Chaim Brikman (Chabad of Seagate) – 718-265-1104
    Dayan Sholom Shuchat – 248-247-4900

    EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!

    Certain procedures that fertility doctors “sell” to women over a certain age are OSSUR in Lubavitch. WATCH OUT! One doctor tried to convince me that I should “just go ahead” because she has plenty of patients from another branch of chassidim who (according to her) were supposedly told by their Rov to “do whatever it takes to have a baby.” This is absolutely NOT what Lubavitch would say, at least about certain procedures that are widely used in the velt. ALSO: Having properly trained shomers for certain procedures is ABSOLUTELY VITAL! Otherwise, you could find out that halachically, “your” child… Read more »

    Please note:

    Puah is an organization that does many things, one of them being Hashgacha – it happens to be the organization that most Chabad Rabbonim rely on for this – but you go to them only after you have spoken to the Rav about what and how you can do what and when…
    Hatzlacha to all!
