About Rabbanit Yemima Mizrachi


She was born in Morocco – Casablanca to Rabbi Elinatan and Tirtza Rothschild, and was named after the Six Day War which happened shortly before her birth. Her father was the grandson of Rabbi Ernst Weil, one of the heads of the Jewish community in Alsace, and a descendant of the Swiss Rothschild family. Her grandmother Sarah Rothschild also taught Torah to women and girls. Her maternal grandfather, Rabbi Haim Raphael Shoshana, was a rabbi and judge in Morocco And in Be’er Sheva, he also served as a linguist, bard and author of a series of books on the poetry of Moroccan Judaism. She is the great-granddaughter of Rabbi Jacob Dahan of Marrakesh. 

When she was a year-old her family immigrated to Israel and settled in Jerusalem, in the Bayit Vagan neighborhood. After graduating the Horev High School for girls and serving in national service as a caregiver for the elderly, she studied law at the Hebrew University, and worked as a lawyer. After that she was certified as a rabbinical claimant.

In 2001, Rabbanit Yemima began to give lessons in her home on the topic of the week’s parasha, starting with ten women in her living room.  As of today, she conducts weekly classes for thousands of women. 

Her audiences typically include everyone from high school girls to senior citizens, single and married women, religious and secular, Chassidic and Litwak, Ashkenazi and Mizrachi. Her lectures deal with the cycle of the year, the parasha of the week, the status of women and their roles, parenting relationships, dealing with difficulties and also include topical references and current events. She uses humor, emphasizes the importance of joy and femininity. In her words, Rabbanit Yemima gathers commentators from the first and the last, usually without personal innovations. The main innovation in her words is a direct appeal to women, and to various life issues from a female point of view. 

Rabbanit Yemima’s lectures are transcribed and distributed to thousands of women by her student, Yikrat Friedman, under the name “Parsha Vasha”, starting in 2002.

It is a small step for Europe and a big step for the religious world.”
