Photo exhibition for Jewish Disability Awareness Month

February has been designated as "Jewish Disability Awareness Month."  We haven't scheduled any particular programs here at Temple Israel this month on that theme.  However, I wanted to share with you a link to an interesting photo exhibit on the topic, which is on display in St. Louis Park through February 28th.  At the JRLC Day on the Hill program in St. Paul yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting Jane Strauss, the photographer who created the exhibit.  You can view it at the Sabes JCC in St. Louis Park or here on line by visiting the following link: 

And, if you happen to be in the Twin Cities next weekend, you might want to check out a free screening at the Sabes JCC of a new film called "Wretches and Jabberers" which portrays the true story of two Jewish men with autism who embark on a global quest to change attitudes about disability and intelligence.  The screening takes place on Sunday, Feb. 27 at 6:30 p.m.  Further details, including how to reserve a free seat to the screening, can be found at the following link:
