“Behold how good and pleasant it is for all to dwell together in unity” Psalm 133
The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington is proud to join together with Jews from all over the world in this unified effort to raise awareness and champion the civil rights of people with disabilities. Until this culture change is complete, the month of February has become the time to step up our campaign. This page was designed to provide the resources to plan annual JDAIM events and programs. The column on the right includes activities, book club ideas, and other resource material. Additional resources can be found on our Disability and Inclusion website. Please post all your JDAIM events on Jconnect so they will appear on this page. Together, we can foster a more inclusive Jewish community that emphasizes, first and foremost, the value, dignity and capabilities of each and every individual.
An inclusive community is a stronger community, and while this quest is universal, Jewish values and traditions provide teachable moments to advance inclusion. JDAIM’s logo, a blue and gold intertwined ribbon that forms the Magen David, was designed to signify how inclusion is woven into every aspect of Jewish life and community. Join us – use this resource; create a JDAIM program and find a JDAIM program to attend.
