Sheryl Grossman has a very rare Jewish genetic condition, Bloom's Syndrome. She is the 72nd case ever diagnosed. As an adult she has spent over 20 years as a Disability Rights advocate working on issues from access to education to access to public spaces to voting rights, housing, employment, and access to appropriate medical care. In the last 10 years, her focus has been geared to those with rare conditions and those with multiple minority group status. As an Observant Jew, her first love is working with the intersection of Judaism and Disability. In her free time Sheryl runs an international support group for people with Bloom's Syndrome and their support networks, Bloom's Connect. She has a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology with a Minor in both Jewish and Near Eastern Studies and Disability Studies.
