When Max was 6 years old he wanted to go to kindergarten but there was one problem. He has cerebral palsy, and his parents were concerned that their Jewish day school wouldn't be able to take him in, love him and make him feel welcome.
A Place for All: Faith and Community for Persons with Disabilities is a unique interfaith documentary, produced in conjunction with the New York Board of Rabbis, with the support of an extraordinary range of faith groups including the National Council of Churches, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the United Methodist Church, the United Church of Christ and the U.S. Council of Catholic Bishops.
A Place for All explores the courageous stories of persons with disabilities as they succeed in making their faith communities truly inclusive. It features people such as Rabbi Darby Jared Leigh, a rabbi at Congregation Bnai Keshet in New Jersey and one of the handful of deaf rabbis in the world; members of ELCA's DAYLE program, where definitely abled youth unite at the 40,000 strong triennial Evangelical Lutheran youth gathering; 5 year old Max Rubin, who suffers from cerebral palsy; Rev. Beth Lockard, pastor of Christ the King Deaf Church; and Brandon Kaplan, a severely disabled boy with limited sight and speech who recently had the privilege of becoming a Bar Mitzvah.
