Meet Lisa


I am a Jewish Educator and Inclusion Expert who knows that each of us is created b'tzelem elohim (in God's image). I firmly believe that everyone has a right to learn and feel connected to his/her heritage.

Lisa Friedman; Removing the Stumbling Block


I consult with many Jewish and other faith organizations to guide them in the development of inclusive practices for staff, clergy and families through interactive workshops, dialogue and awareness training. I am a sought-after speaker on a wide variety of topics for professionals, lay leaders, parents, teachers and teens.

I currently serve as an Education Director at Temple Beth-El in Central New Jersey where I oversee and inclusive synagogue school. Additionally I am the Project Manager for the UJA Federation of New York's Synagogue Inclusion Project, Cohort 2.

My writing is regularly featured in such publications as The NY Jewish Week, Reform Judaism.org, Kveller and Think Inclusive. In addition, I work with Behrman House to develop curriculum and techniques for working with students who demonstrate a wide variety of learning needs.
