Disability Inclusion

The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington proudly celebrates Jewish Disability Awareness, Acceptance & Inclusion Month! In February and year round, we are proud to join with organizations and communities around the world to raise awareness, champion the rights, and meet the needs of people with disabilities. Together, we can foster a more inclusive Jewish community that recognizes the value, dignity, and capabilities of each and every individual.

Explore community events and resources below for ways to build a fully-integrated employment environment, make your organization more inclusive, raise awareness of and advocate for the civil rights of individuals with disabilities, and learn about the inclusion efforts of Jewish institutions in Greater Washington.

Plus, visit The Jewish Federations of North America’s resource page for Jewish Disability Awareness Month for educational and advocacy events throughout the month of February.
