"The Lord called me when I was in the womb, before my birth He had pronounced my name."
In Hebrew 'rechem' means 'womb' and 'compassion.'
"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Judaism emphasizes the sanctity of human life from conception to
natural death, making it incumbent upon Jews to find life saving
ways to address unplanned and unwanted pregnancy.
The Jewish Pro-Life Foundation knows Jewish couples who want to adopt Jewish babies. These couples can't have children of their own,
yet long to raise a Jewish child.
Placing your child in a loving Jewish home will alleviate the potential
burdens of child rearing -- while celebrating life. Beyond saving one life, you will enrich many others -- including your own. Arrangements will be made to safeguard your reputation while you are pregnant as you undertake this righteous deed (mitzvah). Please call Cecily at (412) 758-3269 for adoption support.
In Shifra’s Arms is the only Jewish American organization catering to women struggling with unplanned pregnancy crises. Our tangible and compassionate support is available from the first trimester through the baby’s first birthday. We also offer caring follow-up in cases of miscarriage or abortion.
