Dr. Ora Horn Prouser will be joining us in honour of JDAIM (Jewish Disabilities, Awareness, Acceptance, and Inclusion Month), which occurs every February. Dr. Horn Prouser is the CEO and Academic Dean at The Academy for Jewish Religion, a pluralistic rabbinical, cantorial and graduate school in Yonkers, New York and author of Esau’s Blessing: How the Bible Embraces Those With Special Needs.
She comments, “Analyzing biblical characters as individuals with disabilities has contributed a great deal to our reading of the Bible and to our understanding of the importance of diversity and inclusiveness in the Jewish world.”
Tamir and its partners invite you to a community-wide lecture.
