Pregnant & Worried?
We Are Here For You.

If you are in crisis because you didn’t want to become pregnant, we’re glad you found us. If you planned your pregnancy and then a crisis hit (like a job loss or a break-up), we are also here for you.

SHIFRA (aka In Shifra’s Arms) is a unique Jewish support network dedicated to nurturing you through the crisis and empowering you to flourish.

You Can Lean On Us.

If you just need to be heard, we are here to listen. You can receive help for just an hour or for many months — you choose. If you do not continue your pregnancy, we always provide sensitive follow-up. If you decide that you want a team to lean on during your unexpected motherhood journey, we offer a lifetime of support. Our help includes free professional counseling, financial grants and material aid, and a lifetime of parenting classes. Our services are always totally free and confidential.

Custom support for your needs


We help Jewish women from every background.  Our clients are both single and married, unaffiliated and Orthodox, ranging from late teens to early 40s.  We work with women in North America and abroad (outside of Israel).  We don’t have a ‘cookie cutter’ approach.  Our long-term help is based on what you say are your biggest needs and goals for your journey.  While we do not facilitate adoptions, we do provide specialized financial aid and support to women who make that choice.

We think you deserve them.
