Editorial Reviews


A BOOK OF TENDER SCHOLARSHIP advocating Shleimut, a whole community response to the learning challenged. . . . Multi denominational perspectives offer a wide range of advocacy. . . . Articles ranging from hard science to passionate homiletics articulately advocate for a segment of our population with heretofore unheard voices. -- Rabbi Nathan Goldberg, Director of Pastoral Care and Education, Beth Israel Medical Center

DOES AN EXCELLENT JOB of representing the relationship between disability and Judaism from a myriad of perspectives: historical, theoretical, scholarly, and pragmatic. What I found particularly impressive was the way in which the book's content mirrored its spirit of inclusiveness. -- Fred P. Orelove, PhD, Executive Director, Partnership for People with Disabilities, Virginia Commonwealth University

Offers an inclusive kaleidoscopic view of Judaism and how Judaism approaches disability. Each sensitive contribution adds depth and perspective to the moral imperatives confronting Jewish law, individuals, families, communities and humanity. -- Rabbi Micah Hyman, MA, Chaplain, UCLA Medical Center

WELL WRITTEN AND INFORMATIVE . . . provides additional insight as to the importance of religion, spirituality, and inclusion in the lives of Jewish individuals with intellectual and physical challenges. Theological precepts confirm the inherent worth and dignity of all people and challenges us to provide meaningful opportunities for inclusion and participation to facilitate fulfillment. -- Sheldon R. Gelman, PhD, FAAMR, Schachne Dean, Wurzweiler School of Social Work, Yeshiva University
