About the Event

Calling all Disabled Jewish Farmers! We'd love for you to join our community of disabled (or crip, Deaf***, mad, mentally ill, neurodivergent, chronic pain, chronically ill, etc) folks to gush and kvell** at our magic while sharing what it’s like to be a farmer (or to *want* to be a farmer) as disabled people—the woes, frustrations, victories, and connections we have with the land. We gather monthly with rotating facilitators and would love for you to join our next call.

This month's call will be facilitated by Sonia and Ollie! We are currently counting the Omer, a practice that takes up from Pesach to Shavuot - from the barley harvest to the wheat harvest, and from the narrow place to liberation. As disabled Jewish farmers we want to explore: How can we understand this ancient agricultural technology of marking time through the lens of disability justice? How can we access the wisdom of the sephirot in a way that's supportive to us in our disability/identity/relationship with self+body? Together we will dive into this week's central sephira (chesed) and count the omer together. 🌸

***ASL interpretation is not currently provided, but we welcome signers to join with VRS interpreters. If ASL interpretation would enable you to participate, email us ASAP at liel@jewishfarmernetwork.org so we can arrange for interpretation. These meetings have automated closed captions. We are committed to finding ways to meet each other's access needs.

**kvell is a Yiddish word for feeling or expressing pride and/or delight

Art by Orly Rubinfeld, inspired by blessings offered to each other during the Disabled Jewish Farmer Space on January 31, 2021 at Cultivating Culture: a (virtual) Gathering of Jewish Farmers.

Please email liel@jewishfarmernetwork.org with any questions, access needs, or to talk about facilitating a future call. Anyone can facilitate, and that includes you!

We've also added an option to make a donation to Jewish Farmer Network along with your RSVP. A donation is never required to attend any of our events, but if you are able to contribute, it helps support JFN in compensating facilitators, paying content contributors, and supporting JFN's other programming.
