JFCS and RespectAbility invite you to join Pamela Schuller for a hilarious and meaningful evening in honor of JDAIM (Jewish Disability Acceptance, Awareness, and Inclusion Month) and JDAM (Jewish Disability Advocacy Month).

As a teen, Pamela Schuller had the worst diagnosed case of Tourette Syndrome in the country, a touch of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and a whole lot of pent-up anger. She spent years depressed, suicidal, and wishing her differences away. Over time, she started looking at her life differently and turned her obstacles and challenges into the very fuel that propels her.

Now an internationally known disability and mental health advocate and professional stand-up comedian, Pamela’s stories of growing up in a body she had no control over are engaging, powerful, a little bit heart-wrenching, and unapologetically funny.

For more information or if you need assistance registering, contact Rivka Goldman at rgoldman@jfcsphilly.org or 267.256.2250.
