Rabbi Julia Watts Belser—Moses: Provocations from a Disabled Prophet (Zoom only)

April 14 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Program Fee:

In partnership with the Jewish Community Library

When God sends Moses to lead the Israelites out of slavery, the prophet famously says no. Why? Moses describes himself as “slow of speech and slow of tongue”—in other words, a stutterer. While some commentators treat Moses’ speech disability as a spiritual impediment, this talk and text study brings Moses’ story into conversation with the life experiences and activism of contemporary disability communities. Participants will grapple with spiritual and political questions about access and equity, invisibility and silence, as well as practices for transforming social inequality and shame in order to illuminate the provocative power of spiritual leadership that centers disability wisdom. This event will feature live CART captioning.

Sunday, April 14 @ 2–3pm on Zoom
