Discover Dignity and Disability with a Jewish Lens

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Our tradition offers guidance on how to meet the diverse educational needs of each child, helping them form positive connections to Jewish life and learning. We will involve participants in simulations on what it feels like to have a disability and how teachers, madrichim, and parents can support varied learning approaches in the classroom.
