Inclusion of People with Disabilities in Our Jewish Community

The evening of October 25th, Temple Grandin will be the keynote speaker for the event “Inclusion of People with Disabilities in Our Jewish Community,” hosted by Congregation Har HaShem in Boulder. Dr. Grandin, whose struggles with autism were chronicled in the HBO film Temple Grandin, is an animal science professor at Colorado State University and was recently named by Time magazine as one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World.

In addition to Dr. Grandin’s speech and book signing, the Jewish Disabilities Network will be on hand for a presentation, and a family will share their own personal story. There will also be a resource fair for families, caregivers and educators, as well as a collaborative art project for attendees of all ages and abilities.
