Greater MetroWest Commemorates Jewish Disability Awareness, Acceptance & Inclusion Month


February 2021 is the 13th Annual Jewish Disability Awareness, Acceptance & Inclusion Month (JDAIM) which reminds us that all members of our community, without regard to disability, must have access and opportunities to contribute to Jewish life – to work live, love, play, learn and worship how and where they choose.

We are thrilled to share a month’s worth of ways you can learn, engage, and help raise awareness of the importance of including people with disabilities in Jewish communal life. Due to the virtual nature of our programming this year, there are new and exciting ways to get involved, both locally and nationally.

If you have questions or want to share additional program information, contact Rebecca Wanatick, Manager of Community Inclusion, at rwanatick@jfedgmw.org or (973) 929-3129.
