Communal Loss Adaptation Project (CLAP)
CLAP provides a supportive, non-judgmental context with a queer spiritual framing to form empathetic connections among those grieving. This space is led by SVARA Faculty Rabbi Elliot Kukla.
Disability Justice Torah Circle (DJTC)
This is a space for Jews with disabilities to build community around Torah and engage Jewish text through a disability justice lens. The space nurtures and amplifies the voices of Jews with disabilities and produces “Disability Torah” to impact the broader Jewish community. On occasion, there are offerings for allies.
Trans Halakha Project (THP)
The Jewish community has been blessed with the increased visibility of trans, intersex, non-binary, and gender non-conforming folks. The unique lives, bodies, and experiences of this growing subset of our community demands a new halakha (pathways and practices of Jewish expression). The Trans Halakha Project seeks to empower and nourish the trans Jews whose experiences are not yet at the center of halakhic exploration.
