The Jewish Pro-Life Message.

For all generations born and not yet born.

Providing information and resources of traditional and authentic pro-life Judaism.


"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you."

Jeremiah 1:5



The Jewish Life League is an organization created to reflect the traditional Jewish pro-life perspective on abortion. Our mission is to raise consciousness and awareness in the Jewish community to the tragic consequences in our culture since abortion was legalized in 1973, inspire and educate fellow Jews encouraging them to support the pro-life cause, and to form strategic alliances with others in the pro-life community who share similar values.

The Jewish Life League maintains that life, both born and unborn, is sacred and that the pro-abortion position of mainstream Jewish organizations is deceptive, violates Torah law and is antithetical to the traditional teachings of our faith.

Bonnie Chernin, Founder of The Jewish Life League has been actively involved in the pro-life movement since 1986. In the early 1990s, Bonnie volunteered at Manhattan Right to Life.

In the late 1990s, there were no websites informing the public of the pro-life position from the viewpoint of original biblical Judaism. American Jews were getting only one message, and there was a need for a pro-life voice in the Jewish community.

In March of 2000, Bonnie Chernin founded Jews For Life, the first pro-life website representing traditional Jewish pro-life values and beliefs. In 2018, Bonnie launched The Jewish Life League. Our articles provide information on Planned Parenthood, the ongoing tragedy of the sale of aborted baby body parts and the gruesome abortion methods that have killed over 62 million unborn children in the United States since 1973.

In the United States, between 17,000 and 18,000 Jewish children are killed by abortion every year. Since 1948, there have been 2 million abortions in Israel. We consider this abortion an international tragedy.

The Jewish Life League promotes its pro-life message through articles, audio and video resources, political commentaries and analysis of government policy. We welcome contributions from other writers with similar viewpoints. We value and welcome your feedback.

Bonnie passionately believes that all human life is precious from conception to natural death, and she looks forward to the day when the scourge of legalized abortion and euthanasia come to an end. Over the last two decades, Bonnie has had hundreds of articles published on pro-life topics. She currently is a featured writer on Renew Americaa blogger at The Times of Israeland contributor to the Published Reporter.

Bonnie is an accomplished classical pianist and a Certified Professional Coach assisting women in achieving their life and career goals.

"He who saves one life saves the world entire."

Mishnah Sanhedrin, 4:5; Yerushalmi Talmud 4:9, Babylonian Talmud Sanhedrin 37a




We are now forming a post-abortion support group for Jewish women and men seeking recovery from abortion regret and grief.  Tikvat Rachel was developed by Cecily Routman, President of The Jewish Pro-Life Foundation.

Our plan is to have an ongoing meeting in a private Zoom room where attendees can share abortion experiences, discuss any regrets and grief and find spiritual and emotional healing through interactions with one another. 

This program offers a healing pathway for Jews who seek a confidential, safe, accepting, and compassionate Jewish program to address the deeply personal issues that arise after abortion. The program is based on the Jewish concept of Teshuvah and the promise of healing in Judaism.

If you or someone you know is hurting from a past abortion experience and needs healing, this Teshuvah based program can help with the healing process.

Please contact Barbara at or call 347-566-7898 for more information.

Pro-Life Judaism

From ancient times, Judaism was the only religion that valued human life, and abortion is not part of the Jewish heritage.

The Senate Democrats rejected two bills that would save babies' lives.  The Born-Alive Abortion Survivor Protection Act would mandate care for babies that survive abortions.  The Pain Capable Unborn Child Act would have banned abortion after five months, when it is proven that the unborn child can feel pain.   In his article "Reflections on Abortion & Infanticide from a Jewish Perspective," pro-life columnist Don Feder explains what happens to civilizations that have contempt for human life.  Rabbis speak out for Life, and Exodus 21:21-23 - the facts on this verse.

The March For Life was awesome.   For the first time, a U.S. President appeared in person to deliver a speech that was a list of his dedication to saving unborn children from death by abortion.   In doing so, President Trump validated the pro-life movement and our efforts and was telling us that his administration will continue to work to end abortion.   There were other speakers, and this year's theme was "Life Empowers:  Pro-life is Pro-Woman."   Speakers Melissa Ohden and Claire Culwell gave powerful testimonies of what it is like to survive abortions.
