Meet Lisa


I am a Disability Inclusion Expert and Jewish Educator and who knows that each of us is created b'tzelem elohim (in God's image). I firmly believe that everyone has a right to learn and feel connected to his/her heritage.

Lisa Friedman; Removing the Stumbling Block


I consult with many schools and organizations to coach them in the development of inclusive practices for staff, clergy, and families through interactive workshops, dialogue, and awareness training. I am a sought-after speaker on a wide variety of topics for professionals, lay leaders, parents, teachers, and teens.

I currently serve as an Education Director at Temple Beth-El in Central New Jersey where I oversee an inclusive synagogue school. Additionally, I am the Project Manager for UJA Federation of New York's Synagogue Inclusion Project, Cohort 2.

My writing is regularly featured in such publications as The NY Jewish Week, Reform Judaism.org, Kveller and Think Inclusive. In addition, I work with Behrman House to develop curriculum and techniques for working with students who demonstrate a wide variety of learning needs.

Contact me to learn more about presentations and consulting opportunities.
