Rabbi Bradley Shavit Artson

Rabbi Bradley Shavit Artson, Autism Father, Clergy

"My Jacob has taught me more in 4 years than all of my professors at Harvard or in rabbinical school could ever have hoped to, because my Jacob taught me to live now. He taught me that all that really matters is in the heart. He reminds me to love the unlovable, because the great miracle of life is that if we love the unlovable they become really lovable indeed. And so do we (Rabbi Bradley Shavit Artson, Everyone is Someone's Jacob: What I Learned from my Autistic Son, American Jewish University: Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies)."
