PRAYING WITH LIOR - The Documentary Film --
was made possible only by the generous support of numerous folks and foundations. We are now gearing
up to create and implement PRAYING WITH LIOR - The Outreach Campaign, to educate and inspire faith communities to look at the numbers of people with disabilities who are missing from their midsts, and to create a place of welcoming.
We need funds to commission a teacher's guide,
to make this website interactive so people with special needs can share information, to put on workshops
at ordaining clerical institutions, and to sponsor panel discussions and screenings across the country. All donations are fully tax deductible, through our fiscal sponsor, the Hartley Film Foundation. Please go to hartleyfoundation.org/donate. Under films to support, please fill in PRAYING WITH LIOR OUTREACH.
You can sponsor a program in your community!
Producer/ Director Ilana Trachtman will host a screening and lead a discussion about the power of inclusion, the journey of the film, and innovative approaches to inclusion in your community. All speaker fees go directly to the film and outreach program. For a listing of places that have already hosted the trailer, click here (PDF):
The Book Project:
Lior is very special, but his story is not unique. We want to tell the stories of many other "special"
Bar Mitzvahs - to share their beauty, and to offer inspiration and practical ideas for families of individuals
with special needs planning for Bar Mitzvah. If you know of a special Bar Mitzvah - of any kind, please
contact us (prayingwithlior@hotmail.com) so that we can include the story in the forthcoming anthology!
Donations are 100% tax deductible
Checks should be made out and sent to:
49 Richmondville Avenue
Suite 204
Westport, CT 06880

Please write "PRAYING WITH LIOR OUTREACH" on the memo line.
