Dear Rodeph Sholom Family,
Please join us tonight at 6PM for Shabbat services to process our responses to the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. In the solidarity of sacred community, we will express our collective responsibility in the face of this alarming rollback in personal freedom. Many in our congregation dedicate themselves to ensuring the availability of reproductive healthcare across our nation. Reproductive freedom is a Jewish value. According to Jewish law, abortion is not only permitted in at least some circumstances, but even required if the life of the pregnant person is at risk.
Please scroll down to learn about today’s Jewish Vigil for Abortion Justice hosted by National Council for Jewish Women at 4 PM ET and the Planned Parenthood “Bans Off Manhattan” Rally tonight at 8 PM in Union Square.
Yours in solidarity and Shabbat Shalom,
Your CRS Clergy Team
