SHABBAT LIMMUD – February 17 10am-noon in person @30 Cleary in Fellowship Hall

Parshat Terumah & JDAIM – Jewish Disabilities, Awareness, Acceptance and Inclusion Month

What makes a building, space or community “accessible?” Is it just a matter of ramps and other devices, or are there more non-material components required? Our limmud/ study will include passages from Torah and Talmud, as well as excerpts from Loving Our Own Bones: Disability Wisdom and the Spiritual Subversiveness of Knowing Ourselves Whole, by Julia Watts Belser, a scholar, activist, and rabbi.

Bring your whole selves to our lively, musical service led by Rabbi Liz, and to our learning and reflections as we explore inclusion, ableism, and accessibility in our shared Jewish context.

As a passionate queer Jewish feminist, as a proud disabled Jew, as a white person committed to disrupting white supremacy and all the interlocked structures of inequality that drive our world and ways of being, I will not try to paper over the times that text and tradition have let me down. But I also won’t assume that there is nothing here for me. I claim this tradition and am claimed by it. I shape it and am shaped by it.  I hold it close, and I am held.”                   

 ~ Loving Our Own Bones, p. 22
