VINTAGE ISRAELI DANCING -  A Post-Pandemic return – better than ever!

JDAIM Shabbat commemorated at Shabbat evening service

February 24, 2023 - 7:00pm

JDAIM Shabbat will be at Or Hadash on February 24 at 7:00 pm. Our guest will be Rabbi Elliot Kukla speaking on The Torah of Disability Access. In his talk, we will look at the writing of contemporary disabled activists like Mia Mingus, Alice Wong, and Leah Lakshmi Piepezna-Samarsinha on the topic of disability access. We will use this lens to uncover a new Jewish spirituality of accessibility and survival, for this era of tumult and change, where no one is left behind.

TAP at Or Hadash

Jewish Learning Venture (JLV) trains and mentors a selected group of high school students to assist children with special needs and those experiencing difficulty in congregational classroom settings. Beginning with a week-long intensive training, and continuing monthly through the school year, teens study, learn skills, work in classrooms in their congregations, and reflect with one another about their experiences. JLV has proudly offered the Reta Emerson Fellowship/Teen Assistant Program (TAP) since 2002, and many OH teens have been a part of it.
