Noticing Others’ Pain:
The Journey of Infertility

What can be done to notice the pain and difficulties of those who long for children and have not succeeded in making that desire a reality? How does the Jewish community address those coping with infertility? And once we have noticed, what becomes our communal responsibility? 

In this ELI Talk, Naomi Less publicly shares what many don’t see. She talks about what is not noticed and makes a suggestion and request of the community at large.

After watching the video, think of those in your circles who may be coping with infertility. 

The first step to gratitude is acknowledgement. 

  • Reach out and let them know you noticed. 
  • Find out how you can be supportive — emotionally, practically, or financially.
