A few months ago I decided to make a donation to one of the OU’s campaigns and they sent me a copy of the Jewish Action magazine. In the most recent one, there was a spread that advertised a book about Family Purity laws written by a “Rabbanit”. This struck me because I didn’t think that Rabbanit was an accepted title in the OU/orthodox world. I’m aware of Yoetzet Halacha. So what does this title consist of? Is there actual Smicha? Are the opportunities and permissions for a “Rabbanit” similar to that of a Rabbi? Is this sort of designation only accepted in certain circles? Or is it recognized broadly across the Ortho/Modern Ortho world?
