Review
"In a world that needs to celebrate the gift of each person, this program certainly delivered a powerful message through words and ministry."

                     Executive for Ecumenical & Interreligious Relations

Review
"A Place for All, from the accomplished filmmaking team of Debra Gonsher Vinik and David Vinik, features the efforts of some religious bodies to welcome the disabled among us... The general idea pervades that if you don't really value people with disabilities, you won't budget for accommodating them. And Rabbi Leigh, himself deaf, suggests that choosing not to accommodate others actually hurts the congregation as well as the disabled person, for the congregation is missing out on gifts it would otherwise receive."
