Don’t miss the opportunity to create a more inclusive Jewish Community!


February is North American Inclusion Month

Yachad/National Jewish Council for Disabilities is dedicated to the inclusion of all Jews with disabilities in every aspect of Jewish life. Close to 1 million Jews have to overcome barriers in order to be included in Jewish life. Yachad wants to partner with you to help provide opportunities to include all Jews and offer them and their families a meaningful place in the community.

What is the Mission of NAIM?

The goal of NAIM 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 Jewish life. Together we can build inclusive communities for all Jews, regardless of their challenges or special needs.
