Celebrating One Year of Blogging!

Today I celebrate one year of blogging about the inclusion of individuals with disabilities in Jewish life.  What a wonderful, enriching and unexpected journey it has been.

This past year I’ve learned a lot about myself as a writer, an advocate and as an Educator. I have grown in my personal commitment to serving ALL students and have met some amazing people who are equally as committed to the value of inclusion as I am along the way.

Happy One Year Blogiversary; Removing the Stumbling Block

I hope that I have helped to raise awareness of the need for more inclusive synagogues and Jewish organizations. I hope that I have inspired others to think more deeply and take action to bring change to their organizations. 

Looking ahead, there are exciting things on the horizon. I am honored that my writing has been recognized nationally and has led to new opportunities as a speaker and consultant.  I look forward to more such possibilities and appreciate all of the support and encouragement to pursue this aspect of my career. Please be in touch if you wish to have me present at an upcoming conference, lead professional development workshops in your school or speak to the leadership of your organization about how to grow your inclusive practice.

February continues to be a nationally recognized opportunity to engage in conversations that can move us from raising awareness to fully including individuals with disabilities in our Jewish communities (JDAIM - Jewish Disability Awareness and Inclusion Month)

Thank you all for reading, encouraging, commenting and sharing.
