We are sad to write that Rabbi Evan Jaffe (Z”L), the creator of this study session, passed away in August 2015. Rabbi Jaffe was a great rabbi and a great leader, whose dedication to disabilities inclusion both inside and outside of the Jewish World was as inspiring as it was instrumental in making the world more inclusive for people with disabilities. Rabbi Jaffe was recently honored by the Forward as one of “America’s Most Inspiring Rabbis,” for his dedication to disabilities inclusion, and his work in all facets of Jewish life. The Forward’s write-up on Rabbi Jaffe is available here. We are honored to have known and worked with Rabbi Jaffe. May his legacy be an inspiration to us all, and may his memory be a blessing.
This study session discusses ways of integrating adults with disabilities into your congregation.
