About Lisa


I am a Jewish Educator and Inclusion Expert 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 am blessed to be widely recognized in the field of Jewish Special Education and Inclusion. I consult with many Jewish and other faith organizations to guide 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 and inclusive synagogue school. Additionally I work as Blog Manager for Matan.

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.
