Judaism Unbound

In recent days, it has become clear that the future of reproductive justice in the United States is at risk. With the possibility of Roe v. Wade being overturned, many organizations are speaking out publicly, to ensure continued access to safe abortions around the country. Among Jewish organizations, the National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) has been a leader in this regard.

Two years ago, two of NCJW's leaders -- Sheila Katz and Danya Ruttenberg -- joined Dan and Lex in a conversation that explored the history of their organization, but also shone a light specifically on questions of abortion access through Jewish lenses. We are re-releasing this episode, because we believe it is as relevant as ever.
