January 23: Created Disabled in God’s Image

Part of Jewish disability awareness is bringing disability into the Torah conversation, and bringing the voices of Jews with disabilities to the table.  We will explore disability Torah and questions worth asking as we raise awareness throughout February.


February 22: What’s So Funny About Disability?

On Purim, we flip the script and laugh at the scary and the sacred. Everything is up for joking — including disability and inclusion. This webinar will address appropriate Purim disability humor — what’s absurd in our work towards inclusion? How do we keep our jokes respectful?

March 20: Including All Four Children at Your Seder

On the seder night, Jewish people across the world gather to tell our story together. The Haggadah itself reminds us that we are all part of this conversation. Join us for text and tachlis (practical details) study as you prepare for Passover.
