Disability Learning Weekend

What is disability justice? What does it mean to enact disability justice as a communal value? How can FTJC members ally effectively with each other around this issue?

Please join us as we come together this coming weekend to learn and discuss as a community. During Shabbat morning services on Dec 7, we’ll be hearing a Devar Torah on the topic and have sign language interpreters. 

On Sunday Dec 8, we will learn with renowned religious scholar and disability activist Rabbi Julia Watts Belser
