The vision of Jewish Disability Awareness, Acceptance and Inclusion Month (JDAIM) is to unite Jewish communities and organizations for the purpose of raising awareness and supporting meaningful inclusion of people with disabilities and their families in every aspect of Jewish life.
As a community, we have made great strides to include all of our members in Jewish life and learning. Congregations across Greater MetroWest have made the commitment to provide opportunities for individuals with disabilities and their families to participate fully in Jewish life. Since 2009, over 50 congregations in Greater MetroWest have made the commitment to participate in Shabbat Shalem, a Shabbat made “whole and complete” by the inclusion of all its members, in celebration of JDAIM. We look forward to a Greater MetroWest community in which all members have access to meaningfully participate in every aspect of Jewish life.
