Yachad is dedicated to the inclusion of all Jews with disabilities in every aspect of Jewish life. Our inclusive design aims to ensure individuals with diverse abilities their rightful place within the Jewish community, while helping to educate and advocate for a greater understanding, acceptance, outreach, and a pro-disability attitude.
The goal of North American Inclusion Month is to develop sensitivity and knowledge of what it means to live with disabilities, and to educate communities on how they can do their part to make sure all Jews are properly included in all facets of life. To celebrate North American Inclusion Month, Yachad will offer even more educational programming throughout February, arranging talks by noted disability advocates, providing resources to high school students, and leading many sensitivity trainings.
