“What’s To Come?” Series: Rethinking Disability In Community
Hosted By: SVIVAH
May this not have been for naught, we keep saying.
What do we want our post-COVID world to look like?
Join us and these incredible educators in thinking through building something new and beautiful together. We don’t want to “go back.” We want to look forward. And we want to do it with you.
Join us WEDNESDAY 7/21 at 8-9:30PM EST in learning with Rabbanit Devorah Zlochower, Rosh Kollel of Yeshivat Maharat, who speaks from personal experience about re-working our community values when thinking about “inclusion”. Pamela Schuller, internationally known disability and mental health advocate, professional stand-up comedian, one of The Jewish Week “36 Under 36”, and one-time worst Tourette’s case in the country, will share her story and her vision for an ideal community. We will have a chance to learn together, ask hard questions, and explore a vision of the community we want to build together.
During this pandemic, all of us have experienced some element of exclusion from some spaces as well as new, radical inclusion and welcoming from other spaces. How can our increased sensitivity to exclusion and inclusion help us re-imagine what disability and belonging could look like in the Jewish community? As always, the conversation won’t be complete without you.
HerTorah welcomes Jewish women* 12+ and learners of all backgrounds. Come when you can, stay till you can’t. We just want you around the table. Hoping to see you later. And please share this with someone who might appreciate this conversation? We’d love to know her.
