Whether or not Queen Esther used birth control will be one of the topics discussed in “Esther’s Contracptives: Jewish Views on Reproductive Health,” a new adult education program led by Cantor Michael McCloskey. He will lead an exploration of biblical, rabbinic, medieval and modern texts, along with various media, as participants look at rabbinic attitudes toward’s women’s reproductive health, the Jewish stance on abortion and whether that stance comes into conflict with the recent Supreme Court decision.

Class will look at the intersection of procreation and eros and affirmation of life and personal autonomy. Meetings are virtual.
