Judaism and Women’s Reproductive Rights

In the last half of 2021, we witnessed an all out assault on women’s reproductive rights. Join Stephen Wise as we celebrate women during Women’s History Month by examining abortion and reproductive rights through a Jewish lens and also surveying the current and future landscape. Rabbi Sam Natov will moderate a panel including Stephen Wise Director of Youth Education Rabbi Rena Rifkin, National Council of Jewish Women New York Director of Advocacy and Volunteer Engagement Aviva Zadoff, and National Institute for Reproductive Health Vice President of Political and Governmental Affairs Danielle Castaldi-Micca.
