This report, issued in 1994, was the work product of JRF's Task Force on Inclusion for People with Disabilities.

Rabbi Michelle Greenfield examines Biblical and rabbinic sources on disability. She examines the use and misuse of Hebrew texts that are often quoted when talking about inclusion of people with different abilities. Her English commentary provides a deeper understanding of these texts' strengths and limitations.

This compilation of quotes from various text sources conveys Jewish values regarding people with special needs.

To become a truly inclusive commnuity, we need to make room for conversation about our personal responses to people with disabilities, and how each of us can overcome anxiety or concern and move into friendship and understanding.
