Hebrew and English Texts Related to Disabilities and Inclusion

In the secular calendar, February is Jewish Disabilities Awareness Month. Rabbi Michelle Greenfield, RRC ’12, used the parashat for February 2014 to create Torah text resources in English about inclusion. She added a resource she calls “Some Biblical and Rabbinic Sources on Disability: An Honest Look,” which has Hebrew texts that are often quoted when talking about inclusion of people with different abilities. Her commentary in English provides a deeper understanding of the strengths and limitations of these texts.
