And You Shall Teach Your Child: Integrating Children with Intellectual Disabilities in the Passover Seder

Ramban Synagogue 4 Amatzia St. Greek Colony, Jerusalem

In honor of Passover, on April 7, IDI's Human Rights and Judaism in Action project and the Ramban Synagogue hosted an evening of learning entitled "And You Shall Teach Your Child," which explored the commandment to tell the story of the Exodus to each child according to his or her level of comprehension. This event focused on the integration of people with intellectual disabilities into the family, community, and Jewish religious life, and was a  sequel to the evening of study entitled "On This Night, We All Recline," which focused on the need for integration of people with physical disabilities and was held in 2013.
