Praying with Lior asks whether someone with Down syndrome can be a spiritual genius. Many believe Lior is close to God -- at least that's what his family and community believe -- though he's also a burden, a best friend, an inspiration and an embarrassment, depending on who is asked and when. As this documentary moves to its climax, Lior must pass through the gateway to manhood - his Bar Mitzvah


 


Prior to the film, Lisa Tobin will speak about Round Lake Camp (an NJ Y Camp), the special services provided there, and the plans for more inclusion opportunities at camp, beginning this summer.


 


This program marks Jewish Disability Awareness Month and is brought to you by B’nai Shalom’s Sisterhood and the Inclusion Committee.
