Does it seem ironic that a South Florida congregation affiliated with the Reform movement, which as a matter of policy rejects Jewish law, is filing a lawsuit against a restrictive abortion bill because they claim it violates Jewish law?July 6, 2022 1:44 pm at 1:44 pm #2103768commonsaychelParticipant
Actually they are not affiliated with reform at all, they are Cosmic Jewish whatever that is suppose to meanJuly 6, 2022 5:14 pm at 5:14 pm #2103809hujuParticipant
I though irony described the taste of water in the Mesabi range of northwestern Minnesota.July 6, 2022 6:44 pm at 6:44 pm #2103851DovidBTParticipant

Thanks, I had been looking at the web site of another congregation that has the same name.
The web site of the congregation that’s filing the lawsuit doesn’t say “Reform”, but the policies look the same.July 6, 2022 10:04 pm at 10:04 pm #2103890Always_Ask_QuestionsParticipant
New definition of chutzpah. We need to demand a shomer shabbos Jew on Supreme Court in the name of equity so that he can point this out.July 18, 2022 10:46 am at 10:46 am #2106787Ray KaufmanParticipant
On the principle that even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while, that Reform or whatever congregation is correct. Halacha can be a bit more flexible that some of the proposed anti-abortion laws. See Rabbi Maryles blog for a detailed discussion.July 18, 2022 3:08 pm at 3:08 pm #2106921ujmParticipant

No, the Reform apikorsum are not correct in this case. The only protection needed in anti-abortion laws are to protect the life of the mother. And all the laws provide that protection.
