Resources for Repro Shabbat

January 19, 2024

WRJ, the RAC, and other Reform Movement institutions are proud to cosponsor NCJW's Repro Shabbat February 9-10 (Parashat 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 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 Repro Shabbat and beyond.

There are many ways to incorporate reproductive freedom as a Jewish value into your Shabbat service this Repro Shabbat. With so much impacting the Jewish communal world right now, we can awaken parts of our Jewish identity through Repro Shabbat, whether it looks like a large Shabbat service at your congregation or saying a prayer as you light candles at home.

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.
