Infertility Awareness Shabbat 2021
Sixth Annual Infertility Awareness Shabbat
Infertility Awareness Shabbat is Yesh Tikva’s initiative to raise awareness and sensitivity regarding infertility, and unite as Jews over a cause that affects 1 in 8 men and women throughout the Jewish community.
Join us on March 11-13, 2021 to CREATE SPACE for those in struggle. Together we can once again show those facing infertility that even as we physically social distance, we are still emotionally here to lend support!
By Creating Space, we make our communities, homes and gatherings more inclusive, welcoming, loving, and supportive for the 1 in 8 in struggle.
We are asking synagogues to partner with Yesh Tikva to CREATE SPACE by sharing a message, speech or Dvar Torah to increase sensitivity toward all who have not yet been blessed with children or struggle to expand their families.

Passover is a holiday with a strong focus on children. The Torah charges us to “tell your children (Exodus 13:8)” of the great miracles of the Exodus. So much of what we do on Seder night is “so that the children will ask.” But what about those who have not yet been blessed with children?
And even as we face our second Passover during Covid and are still physically socially distanced, let us not forget the 1 in 8 men and women throughout the Jewish community who are still facing the challenge of infertility this holiday. On March 11-13, 2021 we ask EVERYONE to partner with Yesh Tikva to CREATE SPACE in their physical and virtual communities. The goal of this event is to increase sensitivity toward all who have not yet been blessed with children or struggle to expand their families.
This Passover let us all CREATE SPACE for family and friends and ensure that everyone feels loved, accepted and important.
