Is your Synagogue Inclusive of individuals with disabilities?
The mission of Yachad/NJCD is INCLUSION, to integrate individuals with disabilities into the greater Jewish community. This is achieved through our wide range of social, educational, vocational and summer programs, serving both those with and without disabilities, it is our goal to create a more integrated Jewish community.
We Challenge You! Does your synagogue presently have an INCLUSION committee? Does your synagogue presently have a policy concerning the INCLUSION of individuals with special needs? Do you know what special accommodations members of your community need in order to be able to access services and programs in your synagogue? What are you presently doing to include diverse individuals into your community and synagogue on a daily and weekly basis? How can you make your synagogue more inclusive and user friendly?
