Jewish Text 1

Micah 6:8
What does G-d tell us to do? To do justice, to love chesed (kindness, goodness), and to walk humbly with G-d.

Reflection to Text 1

G-d tells us to be kind to everybody, including people with special needs. G-d tells us to treat everyone the same. The House of Possibiities helps people with special needs to do things we can do, such as overnight camp, sports, cheerleading, and video games.

Jewish Text 2

Babylonian Talmud Kedushim 70a
When a person rejects someone else it is his own shortcoming that he is showing/rejecting.

Reflection to Text 2

The people who reject others are jealous of them, and they could just be doing it because they think you are good at everything.
You shouldn't reject someone because they have special needs,because that would be rude and you shouldn't treat people different if they look or act different. They are still a person and should be treated the same as eveyone else.
This text relates to House of Possibilities because they let everyone join in kids and adults. This would make the kids feel like they belong.
