In celebration of JDAIM’s 14th anniversary we are excited to have Judy Heumann speak to our community about her lived experiences with disability and faith. We will explore this intersection by discussing her memoir, Being Heumann – An Unrepentant Memoir of a Disability Rights Advocate. Judy provides insight into the nuances of her identity as a disabled Jewish woman and how it has informed her activism. Along with a personal history of these important issues, Judy hopes to ignite a call to action for activists and faith leaders that will shape the future of disability inclusion in faith communities.
RespectAbility is the proud home of Jewish Disability Awareness, Acceptance and Inclusion Month (JDAIM). The mission of JDAIM is to unite Jewish communities worldwide to raise awareness and champion the rights of all Jews to be accepted and included in all aspects of Jewish and community life like anyone else.
This webinar will have live CART captions and ASL interpretation.
