Lilith Magazine: #ReproShabbat

“So long as abortion is seen as secular, something to do with the world beyond the bimah and the synagogue doors instead of something happening in the pews, we fall short.”

This Shabbat, National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) is hosting over 200 events across the country for #ReproShabbat! Local synagogues, NCJW sections, Hillels, JCCs, Federations, and more will be hosting panels, discussions, giving d’var Torahs (sermons), and inviting local reproductive justice activists to participate–all to affirm that abortion access is a Jewish value.

I’m honored to have my latest piece in Lilith Magazine about my journey as a Jewish abortion activist and why #ReproShabbat is so important to me. Read my piece below and sign up for one of our events (you can sign up for any of them, not just local ones!)

A Reproductive Shabbat

February 10, 2021 Steph Black On a Saturday afternoon many months ago, I leaned across the center console of my car and pushed open my passenger side door to welcome in a stranger. I only knew her first name and cell phone number, and that she was having an abortion later in pregnancy.
