The Miracle Project
- Field of Interest:
- People with Disabilities
Founded in 2004, The Miracle Project (TMP) works to create a neurodiverse community where the voices, passions, and stories of individuals of all abilities are celebrated, elevated and supported, and belong. Through the use of improvisation, theater games, and role-playing, individuals with autism or other disabilities “rehearse for life” and are provided individual coaching and group facilitation to practice positive interactions with peers, social communication, being part of a group, and work skills, while deepening participants’ understanding of Jewish ritual and tradition. As part of its social skills program, it hires Jewish educators and clergy to teach Jewish music, ritual and text.
To support the development and implementation of a hybrid virtual and in-person theatre and expressive arts program for individuals with disabilities. The program will ensure that TMP is continuing to meet the diverse needs of its participants, helping them decrease isolation, increase communication skills, and build their Jewish identities.
