Can I consult this site as I would a rabbi?

Does this Judaism site on Codidact offer personal guidance in response to practical questions about Jewish law or attitudes, as a rabbi would?

Why should this post be closed?

It does not!

And we mean it! On a website like this you can get some interesting information and discussion, but it won't be tailored to your specific situation, where you stand in Jewish observance, etc.

The community has decided to include the following in the Help Center:

Like Wikipedia, this site makes no guarantee of validity, and does not offer professional (particularly rabbinic) advice. Treat information you find here as if it came from a crowd of your friends.

  • Questions that appear to be requests for personal practical advice will be either edited to more general wording or closed.
  • For more on why it's important to take personal questions of Jewish practice to your Rabbi, see here.

Similarly, the following appears near the top of most pages on this site:

Like any library, this site offers tons of great information, but does not offer personalized, professional advice, and does not take the place of seeking such advice from your rabbi.

This site is part of the Codidact network. We have other sites too — take a look!
