About the Event
Join Disabled Jewish Farmers for our Adar gathering as we delve into the world of masks and costumes. What coverings do we wear as disabled folks to survive in ableist society? How do they serve us and our kindred in getting appropriate care and being treated with dignity? A journey into Esther’s world teaches us about selective disclosure. Esther didn’t reveal her Judaism until it was necessary for her people’s survival. For those with invisible disabilities—how can we protectively utilize disclosure to serve greater disability justice movements particularly for those with visible disabilities who might not have access to the same spaces due to the visibility of their disability? Let's explore what allyship to ourselves and to each other looks like, as we work to increase in joy through solidarity this Adar season <3
This month's call will be facilitated by Ollie + Orly :) We're very much looking forward to seeing you!

General Description: 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.
***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 firstname.lastname@example.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
