The Jewish Education Project is proud to celebrate JDAIM 2021 with our unique collection of disability & inclusion resources. Jewish Disability Awareness, Acceptance, and Inclusion Month (or JDAIM) was founded in 2009 to bring the Jewish world’s attention to an important and often overlooked part of our community. In Israel alone, nearly 10% of its citizens have some form of disability that affects their daily lives. Through storytelling, videos, and engaging discussion, we hope our resources will cultivate an inclusive mindset towards the disabled members of our Jewish family.
JDAIM’S MISSION STATEMENT
The mission of Jewish Disability Awareness, Acceptance, and Inclusion Month is to unite Jewish communities worldwide to raise awareness and champion the rights of all Jews to be accepted and included in all aspects of Jewish life like anyone else.
