National Inclusion Advocate Shelly Christensen today announced the selections of Ketchup Is My Favorite Vegetable by Liane Kupferberg Carter and The Little Gate-Crasher by Gabrielle Kaplan-Mayer, as the 2017 Jewish Disability Awareness & Inclusion Month (JDAIM) featured reading selections. Now in its eighth year, Jewish Disability Awareness & Inclusion Month (JDAIM) is a unified national initiative during the month of February to raise disability awareness and support efforts to foster inclusion in Jewish communities worldwide.

Each year, several books by Jewish authors highlighting disability issues are chosen for JDAIM Reads. Synagogues, JCCs, book groups and other organizations are encouraged to read and discuss these books during February. An event with the Carter and Kaplan-Mayer is scheduled for Philadelphia on February 26th and both authors are available to lead book talks in person or via Skype.
