dc.description.abstractTzedekah (charity) tzedek (justice) and tikkun olam (social justice) are all elements of Jewish religious thought and practice. Members of the Jewish community sometimes view disability as related to charity. For example, when the need for a ramp is identified, congregants suggest a fundraiser. However, in order for disabled Jews to obtain justice, architectural adjustments must be accompanied by attitudinal changes. The rights of disabled persons must be conceived as human rights rather than as aspects of charity.en_US
