Join us at Temple Emunah in Lexington as we honor JDAIM (Jewish Disability Awareness and Inclusion Month) by hosting an inclusion Shabbat. We are excited to have both Dr. Daniel Jackson of MIT, as well as his wife, Claudia Marbach, a fourth-year student at Yeshivat Maharat, the first Orthodox yeshiva granting semihah (rabbinic ordination) to women in the U.S.
Daniel will be speaking during Shabbat morning services, which begin at 9:30 a.m., and Claudia will be doing a post-Kiddush text study on “The Evolution of Halakhah: A Case Study in Disability.”
Daniel will talk about his newly published book, “Portraits of Resilience.” This book, published by MIT Press, details Daniel’s extraordinary effort in writing and depicting MIT students, faculty, and staff struggles with depression and mental illness and how their journey has led them to a deeper meaning in their lives.
