Resources for the 50th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade and Repro Shabbat

January 19, 2023

January 22nd will mark 50 years since Roe v. Wade and the first anniversary since the Supreme Court overturned Roe last summer, paving the way for states to ban abortion and restrict other critical reproductive health services. As you incorporate reflection, lessons, and advocacy around abortion access and reproductive freedom in your community's programming during this time, we share these resources.

Mark your calendar for NCJW's Repro Shabbat February 17th-18th (Parshah Mishpatim) when the Reform Jewish Movement will join with the wider Jewish community to recommit ourselves to reproductive health and rights.

Here, you will find resources to guide reflection, support abortion access, and uplift the Reform Movement's commitment to abortion access and reproductive freedom in your congregations and communities for the anniversary, Repro Shabbat, and beyond.

For ways to protect and support access to abortion, check out:

To commemorate the Anniversary, WRJ asked individuals from across the Reform Movement: 'What does reproductive freedom mean to you?' Read their responses.
