Roe v. Wade - Jewish Faith, Jewish Action

Sunday, January 10, 2021 26 Tevet 5781

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

January marks the 48th anniversary of the Supreme Court's historic Roe v. Wade decision.

To commemorate this anniversary, Congregation Emanu El will partner with the NCJW - Greater Houston Section for a program featuring NCJW (National Council of Jewish Women) chief executive officer Sheila Katz and the Emanu El clergy.

Rabbi Silk will teach what our Jewish text teaches about abortion and reproductive justice.  Rabbi Fixler will engage our special guest in a conversation about work that NCJW is leading nationally on the subject, including their fight to protect reproductive rights in the newly constituted Supreme Court.

Katz will also introduce NCJW's "Rabbis for Repro" initiative, which has engaged nearly 1,000 Jewish clergy and educators, including Rabbi Hayon, Rabbi Silk, Rabbi Fixler and Cantor Simmons.

A Zoom link for the program will be sent out by mid-day on the day of the gathering to all registered participants.
