Tova Warburg Sinensky became the Yoetzet Halacha for the Teaneck community in mid July.

Tova has served as the Yoetzet Halacha of Greater Philadelphia for almost six years, and is also the Yoetzet for the Young Israel of Toco Hills in Atlanta. She has fielded thousands of questions related to Taharat HaMishpacha with her signature grace, sensitivity, knowledge, and warmth. In the past, she also served as the Interim Yoetzet Halacha of the Riverdale Jewish Center and answered questions for Nishmat’s Golda Koschitzky Women’s Halachic Hotline.  

Tova is passionate about building relationships with Rabbis, Rebbetzins, and other professionals to maximally support women and families in a variety of ways. She serves on the advisory committee of the Jewish Fertility Foundation and Eden Center, has contributed to publications for Yesh Tikva and the Eden Center, and has published a number of articles pertaining to the work of Yoatzot Halacha as well as the experience of women and Avodat Hashem.  She has taught Kallot for over a decade, and served as a Curriculum Consultant and educator for various high schools on Intimacy & Healthy Relationships. She currently works as the Reflection Coach at Kohelet Yeshiva where she supports new and veteran teachers by reflecting 1:1 with them on their teaching practice. “The bedrock of all of my work is building relationships and supporting individuals in their quest to be their best selves,” she says.

Tova knows the community well, having grown up in Englewood, N.J. She holds a BA in Philosophy from Stern College, and is a graduate of the Graduate Program for Advanced Talmudic Studies for Women (GPATS). She also has a master’s in Secondary Jewish Education from Azrieli Graduate School. “I am passionate about making Torah learning exciting and accessible to women of all ages and stages,” she says.
