Now in its ninth year, Jewish Disability Awareness & Inclusion Month (JDAIM) is a unified international initiative in 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 and we are excited to bring you the authors of this year's selections.
In Ketchup is My Favorite Vegetable: A Family Grows Up With Autism, Liane Kupferberg Carter delivers a mother's insight into what really goes on in the two decades after diagnosis. From the double blow of a subsequent epilepsy diagnosis, to bullying, Bar Mitzvahs and prom, Mickey's struggles and triumphs along the road to adulthood are honestly detailed to show how one family learned to grow and thrive with autism.
In The Little-Gate Crasher: The Life And Photos of Mace Bugen, Gabrielle Kaplan-Mayer shares the story of her amazing Great- Uncle Mace Bugen--an unstoppable spirit, first generation Jewish American, self-made millionaire, celebrity gate-crasher--who was 43 inches tall. Mace's unstoppable spirit defied the challenges of his own physical limitations and society's prejudices towards people with dwarfism.
