Call for Submissions: Disabilities Awareness Month

We welcome your submissions on disability, in honor of Disabilities Awareness month.

Ritualwell is a living archive of Jewish rituals that draw on both tradition and the contemporary world. The majority of the work published here is user-generated, reflecting the creative and evolving practices of our diverse Jewish community. We welcome year-round submissions of rituals, prayers, poems, audio/video, and blog posts on an array of topics relevant to contemporary Jewish life.

This month, we are specifically looking for submissions that engage with the topic of disability and how it intersects with Jewish life. We invite you to send us your blog posts, poems, prayers, or rituals that address this topic. For inspiration, you might want to revisit the lively discussion we hosted as part of our #ReimagineDisability Twitter chat. Or reread Jeffery Zuckerman's guest blog post on participating in synagogue services as a deaf person. We especially want to hear from those who identify as having a disability or those who work toward inclusion for folks with disabilities. 

Please submit at the following link. While submissions to our site are accepted year-round, the current call for submissions aims to gather work to publish during the current month.

We look forward to reviewing your work!
