As part of Temple Sinai’s participation as a Ruderman Family Foundation Synagogue Inclusion site, Rabbi Vogel offers an opportunity to study Jewish teachings on disability, inclusion, the body and its imperfections. How do Judaism’s ancient teachings instruct us about ensuring that all in our community – whether they deal with mental illness, physical challenges like blindness, deafness or other obstacles – can participate fully? How do those teachings square with the ideal of “priestly perfection” described in the Bible, and in our wider society?
