Start a Local Group

If there is no Yerusha group in your area, please consider starting one.

Members can meet in a living room, coffee shop, synagogue—anyplace that Jewish women and men can come together to discuss their experience of being childless.

These childless women and men can, with the group's help, explore the legacies they might leave to the Jewish people and discover a way to think of themselves as Jewish parents.

Feel free free to use the resources of this website, especially the Steps page, to guide the discussions of your group.

If you would like to start a Yerusha group in your area, please contact Anna Olswanger.
