Looking for a solution to Jewish continuity? Introducing the BirthRATE Program

Someone in your life is struggling with fertility – and you probably don’t know whom, because fertility journeys are often characterized by “crippling isolation.”

Despite all of the Jewish community’s efforts around “Jewish continuity,” musician / educator / activist Naomi Less argues that we’re not hitting the issue at the source. There are Jews out there today, trying to build their Jewish families. They struggle with the emotional, financial, and spiritual repercussions of these fertility journeys.

Is it the Jewish community’s responsibility to support these families-in-the-making? Is it time for a BirthRATE program?

Watch Naomi’s talk and share your thoughts in the comments.
