Enabling Inclusion: The Ruderman Foundation Welcomes The New Normal

To the editors of The Jewish Week,

Congratulations to The Jewish Week for launching “The New Normal,” your new disability blog! The title strikes a perfect balance between what was and the change we are creating. Your welcome initiative is part of an important shift in the dialogue around people with disabilities in Jewish life.
