    Get information and share ideas on how to encourage community leaders, program organizers, and commercial establishment owners to consider and involve Jews with disabilities in their building and program planning processes.

    Support each other in our endeavors to raise awareness and promote inclusiveness of and better ways of relating to and communicating with people with obvious or hidden disabilities and chronic health conditions in the Jewish community.
