Note the date change from June 5 due to a postponement of the film's streaming schedule.

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 watching the film when it streams at the beginning of June, as well as the Zoom link if you plan to attend online.
