Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution


Crip Camp is the story of campers at Camp Jened, a camp for disabled teens down the road from Woodstock in the 70’s. Their bonds ignited what was to become the beginning of a revolution and subsequently, these campers turned activists who shaped the future of the disability-rights movement and changed accessibility legislation in our country. We are proud that this film was directed by Rabbi Eva's brother-in-law, Jim LeBrecht, who is featured in this film as a camper and co-produced by her sister-in-law, Sara Bolder in conjunction with Netflix and President Barack and Michelle Obama. They recently won ‘Audience Best Documentary’ at Sundance and we expect that this movie will have impact around the globe.




A Special Invitation from Rabbi Eva


Dear Shul Family and Friends,


The Shul of New York is percolating with exciting programs as we prepare for the Spring holidays (Purim, Passover, Shavuot). Stay tuned for upcoming information on Shul events and our annual Concert on May 28!


February is Jewish Disabilities, Awareness and Inclusion Month. We recognize our sisters and brothers with physical, cognitive, linguistic, learning, and emotional differences and elevate our consciousness and efforts around issues that impact inclusivity of all people in our society.


In honor of this month, ‘The New York Jewish Week’ featured 10 important reads from The New Normal: Blogging Disability, including voices of people with disabilities as well as their family members, educators, advocates and community members speaking about disability and Jewish life. You can read more at The New York Jewish Week. 


It is my desire at the Shul of New York that we extend this initiative throughout  the year, working together to raise our awareness and notice our actions and reactions when we encounter people who are different from ourselves. In that spirit, I invite you to join me for a special preview showing of Crip Camp followed by a Q&A. 


Come join me on March 26 at 7pm at JCC Manhattan for a showing of the film. 

Tickets are already on sale and expect to sell out soon. 

Get Tickets at JCC.


Let’s get together after the Q & A to talk about the film. If you plan to attend, please e-mail me at so I can arrange a place to meet after the show.


Hope to see you at our next Friday evening Kabbalat Shabbat service.


With loving blessings,

Rabbi Eva
