Stories celebrating Jewish Disabilities Awareness And Inclusion Month
Although I did not know it at the time, Camp Chi was where I learned my first lesson about inclusion.
The truth is, from the ages of 15 until about 27, I thought I was less worthy than everyone else.
We have all faced obstacles and challenges, but we are not (or should not be) defined by them.
Thanks to help from Chicago's Jewish community, the world now sees my sister the way I see her.
With February being Jewish Disabilities Awareness and Inclusion Month, we at Oy!Chicago thought we’d recognize the ongoing importance of this meaningful work by sharing your stories through a special blog series, “Accepted, Welcomed & Included.”
