In her documentary “My So-Called Selfish Life,” filmmaker Therese Schecter challenges the social taboo of a childless life and the expectation that female identity be equated with motherhood. Schecter places this decision firmly in the context of the larger conversation about reproductive choice. Rabbi Pamela Wax will convene a conversation and text study of both secular and Jewish sources about decisions around choosing parenthood. This will be a hybrid session at Congregation Knesset Israel. When you register at https://www.knessetisrael.org/event/lets-discuss-my-so-called-selfish-life.html, you will receive information about catching the film when it streams at the end of May.
