Birth control series, part II
Wednesday August 2nd at 8 PM (EST)
In this two part series, we are exploring the halakhic and medical parameters of birth control. During Part 2 we will be joined by Rabba Dr. Carmella Abraham and Dr. Rebecca C. Amaru to discuss different birth control options that are available to couples, including the pill, IUDs, and more. Together, they will lay out both the halakhic and medical concerns for each method of birth control.

Carmella has interned at the Hillels of Westchester, Columbia Presbyterian Hospital Chaplaincy Program, and served as a Fellow at the Shalom Hartman Created Equal Seminar Fellowship.
