This January, the National Council of Jewish Women is spearheading a movement across the country called ReproShabbat. ReproShabbat is an initiative to spark learning and conversation about Judaism’s approach to reproductive health access, rights and justice. With abortion under attack throughout the country, it’s more important than ever for people of faith to speak up and raise our voices! OneTable New York is thrilled to work in partnership with NCJW’s New York Chapter, to bring ReproShabbat to the OneTable community.
Post a dinner for January 28th with #ReproShabbat or ReproShabbat in the title or description to be a part of the movement. You’ll find some resources below to help guide your discussions around the Shabbat table.
RESOURCES FOR YOUR REPRO SHABBAT
ReproShababt is a time to spread awareness and normalize conversations around reproductive health and rights. We know that reproductive rights, along with other conversations you are having around the Shabbat table, can sometimes feel daunting or overwhelming. This Courageous Conversations Guide can help you feel confident as you approach a meaningful conversation about reproductive health and rights around your table.
