What if Esther Had a Child with Special Needs?
Children with special needs and their families gathered for a Purim carnival at Mishkan Shalom in Philadelphia, part of the synagogue's Celebrations! program for families in search of an inclusive and welcoming Jewish learning environment where they grow their Jewish identity and community participation. A recent grant from The Covenant Foundation will allow the program to expand and be replicated elsewhere. Photos by Scott Weiner.
