Jewish Disability Awareness and Inclusion Month
February is Jewish Disability Awareness and Inclusion Month (JDAIM)! JDAIM is “is a unified effort among Jewish organizations worldwide to raise awareness and foster inclusion of people with disabilities and those who love them.a unified initiative to raise awareness and support efforts to foster inclusion of people with disabilities and their families in Jewish communities worldwide.” Inclusion at Jewish camp is a topic that is very important to us at the Foundation for Jewish Camp. Many of the camps we work with offer programs to campers with a wide range of disabilities. We are working to increase these opportunities, elevate staff training on inclusion, and increase community awareness about the inclusion programs that exist around them. To further the effort, we are running a series dedicated to discussing disabilities at Jewish camp this month.
Check back all month long for posts by camp inclusion coordinators, experts in the field, parents, and more.
