National NCJW is conducting a campaign to support women’s reproductive rights as a part of an overall effort to bolster all women’s health services. Our section has joined with the Essex County Section to write to all rabbis in New Jersey who have signed the pledge from National in support of reproductive rights, and we will be available if any local rabbis want to talk with us about it.

The Essex County Section has also informed us about Thrive NJ, a statewide coalition of organizations working collectively to promote sexual and reproductive health, rights, and justice through policy change and advocacy. For more information about them, go to

Please contact Susan Neigher at if you would like to become involved in this project starting in December.
