February is officially known as Jewish Disability Awareness and Inclusion Month (JDAIM). The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington is proud to join together with Jewish organizations and communities around the world in this unified effort to raise awareness and champion the rights of people with disabilities. Together, we can foster a more inclusive Jewish community that emphasizes the value, dignity and capabilities of each and every individual.
