One in five. That’s the number of people with disabilities in the United States today. If our Jewish communities represent that reality, then 20% of the people we serve, work with or encounter in Jewish settings would have some kind of special need or disability. However, that is often not the case. This session will explore how we can ensure that our programs, classrooms and communities are intentionally designed through an inclusive lens, and how we can all be advocates for inclusion.

Meredith's participation in LimmudFest NY was made possible with generous support from The Covenant Foundation.
