Tourettes and Torah: Lessons for an Inclusive Community

Pamela Schuller is an internationally known inclusion advocate. Her extraordinary personal story of growing up with the most severe known case of Tourette syndrome in the United States-and turning that challenge into professional and personal success-is engaging, funny, a little bit heart wrenching, and deeply meaningful. Pamela holds a BA in Psychology and Youth Outreach Through the Arts and an MA in Child Advocacy and Policy. Pamela is also a stand-up comedian, probably because she sees the world from a different point of view: one where eye-level is four-foot-seven and barking without provocation is a completely normal and entertaining part of her day. She embraces what makes herself unique while challenging communities to view inclusion differently

Named one of the “36 under 36” who are changing the face of the Jewish community by The Jewish Week (May 2016), Schuller is known for using storytelling, laughter and improvisation to inspire communities to a new understanding of inclusion.
