Fertili-Talk speakers: Modeled after the TED Talk format, this program creates community awareness and deeper understanding about Jewish fertility journeys. Speakers delve into personal experiences through stories from a variety of fertility journeys. Tailored to each community’s needs, you choose the topics you think will have the most impact. The program includes a Q and A, time for reflections, and an opportunities for the speaker or another member of the Uprooted team to facilitate a discussion, lead a workshop, or give more of a formal presentation on a particular topic.
Uprooted Webinars: Help your professional or lay community gain greater understanding of knowledge about Jewish fertility journeys by hosting an Uprooted Webinar. Recommended for small groups.

Communal Needs Assessment: Foster greater awareness and gather communal stakeholders to discern how to develop a supportive environment in your community. Uprooted offers a communal needs assessment to help determine a set of actions and programming vital for building community awareness and kindness. With community input, Uprooted will provide a list of recommendations for initiatives that will both draw attention to this field, and provide richer, broader spiritual care and resource ideas for those in need.
Consulting for individuals and communities: Are you passionate about creating a more inclusive community for those on a fertility journey, and want to know how to start your own groundswell?
