The RAC and WRJ are proud to sponsor 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. 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.
Here, you will find material, released prior the 50th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, 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.
Check out the NCJW website to find a Repro Shabbat event near you and additional resources to host your own Repro Shabbat, join with others, or practice privately.
