Slingshot Guide Recognizes Inclusion Leaders

The new Slingshot Guide recognizes inspiring and innovative organizations, projects, and programs--including many leaders in the disability inclusion field.

Gabrielle Kaplan-Mayer directs Jewish Learning Venture’s Whole Community Inclusion which fosters inclusion of people with disabilities through the Philadelphia Jewish community. She loves writing/editing for “The New Normal” and for WHYY’s newsworks. Her latest book The Little Gate Crasher is a memoir of her Great-Uncle Mace Bugen, a self-made millionaire and celebrity selfie-artist who was 43 inches tall and was chosen for this year’s Jewish Disability Awareness & Inclusion Month Book Selections. She’s recently shared an ELI Talk on Standing With Families Raising Kids With Disabilities and has released a journal designed for special needs parents.

This week, the 2018 Slingshot Guide was released and we want to applaud the number of organizations featured in the guide that are doing innovative work to support people with disabilities and their families across the Jewish community. The Slingshot Guide is an annual compilation of the most inspiring and innovative organizations, projects, and programs in the North American Jewish community today.

You can read all about these organizations in the online version of the Guide:
