About the Event
Even as the recent U. S. Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade upends many areas of American life, it is a significant attack on "the wall of separation between church and state” and the ability to follow the teachings of Judaism and other faiths, and personal conscience. Rabbi Dennis S. Ross, director of Concerned Clergy for Choice for Planned Parenthood Empire State Acts, will discuss "Post-Roe Reality: Jewish Perspectives" as a part of Shabbat services.
