Jewish Disability Awareness Month

February is Jewish Disability Awareness Month. We are proud to join the nation in raising awareness and promoting and supporting efforts to foster meaningful inclusion of people with disabilities and their families in Jewish communities worldwide. To that end, INCLUDE (a partnership of Jewish LearningWorks and the SF-based Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund) Rosh Pina, and the Contemporary Jewish Museum are co-sponsoring several free events around the Bay Area. See the Bay Area Inclusion Events page for the full list. 

The goal of Jewish Disability Awareness Month is to shift our attitudes to see that having a disability is part of the human condition-and to see that humanity in each person we meet. Jewish Disability Awareness Month is universally recognized in February, but the need to belong and be included goes on month after month, day after day.
