Temple Shalom’s Reproductive Justice Initiative (RJI) task force advocates for reproductive justice, educates congregants on pertinent issues and offers support to those receiving reproductive health services. We are proud to sponsor “Shining a Light on Reproductive Justice: An Issue That Impacts Us All,” an educational program following services and dinner.

The evening will feature two dynamic experts: Kristie Monast, executive director of HealthQ Sexual and Reproductive Health in Lawrence, and Claire Teylouni, director of government affairs for Reproductive Equity Now. We will also be introducing our upcoming campaign to create Nechama comfort packages for post-abortion care for patients of HealthQ, in conjunction with other local temples and Jewish organizations. Come learn how you can help this important effort!

Join us for services at 6:30 and dinner at 7:30. We will be serving a variety of dinner salads and assorted breads from Judith’s Kitchen for $20 per person. Or just attend the program at 7:45 in-person or via Zoom.

Teens and adults are invited as we focus on the critical state of reproductive justice locally and nationally.
