None of us can be everything to every person. Nor should we even try. I know that I have the ability to inspire others with my writing, but I also know that I am far from the only blogger writing about inclusion or even Jewish inclusion.
Collaboration helps successful inclusion to thrive in organizations, congregations and schools. There are a number of blogs and writers exploring issues of inclusion in the Jewish world, and I think the collection of our voices helps to make us stronger.
As we near the end of Elul, I want to give a nod to an outstanding piece written by Lisa Tobin, the Director of the Disabilities Initiative at the Foundation for Jewish Camp, on The NY Jewish Week’s New Normal Blog: Preparing For High Holidays Services With A Child Who Has Special Needs.
I relish the opportunity to give credit to those who are doing the important and holy work of inclusion!
