What’s In a Name?

November 8 @ 1:00 PM EST

If you’ve ever worried about saying the wrong thing or using the wrong words, this webinar is for you. We’ll be explaining the connotations that various words have, what’s agreed upon, what’s contested, and why we make certain choices in certain contexts. Join us for a conversation with Rabbi Ruti Regan about disability-related language.
