Real Torah / Real Life: Abortion, Beyond Law

Hosted By: SVIVAH, Jewish Theological Seminary of America (JTS), Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan, Hadar

In a time when the dignity and agency of people navigating hard realities of pregnancy is being denied, there is much work to be done. Alongside taking action, it is also a moment to reach for the narratives and theologies that strengthen us in this work. Embracing our Jewish tradition, we can find a much-needed religious voice of care and compassion towards experiences of abortion.

Join and learn from sensitive teachers who bring a rich Jewish tradition to encounter the complexities of people’s real lives, in theory and in practice. Lift up a vision of Torah that can hold us – as individuals and as a society – as we do the beautiful, hard, and messy work of filling the world with life, work which has always included life, loss, and decisions to end pregnancies.
