"A Second Chance for Accessibility: Pesach Sheni"
Rabbi Mike Moskowitz for Bayit: “Making sure that folks who are genderqueer and use a wheelchair have safe access to bathrooms [for example] is just as sacred as our belief in the holiness of G-d’s creations.”
“A letter ‘vuv’ in action, models a ‘Yes. And…’ mentality,” Rabbi Moskowitz continues. “[We are reminded] to take advantage of the opportunity that G-d gives to plan and re-plan, supporting an awareness that there is always more we can be doing.”
