1) Inclusion Is a Jewish Value

Tuesday, June 23, 2020 – 1:30 p.m. ET / 10:30 a.m. PT
If you are in the nonprofit sector, you live your values in your work every day. For many of us, those values spring deeply from our Jewish identity. We all know that the Torah calls upon us to be just, and to be charitable, but did you know that it also calls upon us to be inclusive? Join us for yet another connection between your work and your values, as you learn about how the inclusion that you already believe in as deeply Jewish roots.

2) How to Advance Disability Inclusion in Jewish Education

Tuesday, June 30, 2020 – 1:30 p.m. ET / 10:30 a.m. PT
From Jewish day school to Sunday school to beyond, Jewish education is a hallmark of Jewish identity. Come learn from a group of amazing panelists, who will share amazing work that the Jewish world is doing and ideas that you can replicate in order to ensure the Jews with disabilities have access to this treasured legacy, online and off.

3) How to Recruit, Accommodate and Promote Jewish Leaders with Disabilities for Paid Employment and Volunteer Leadership

Come learn from our dynamic and expert team everything you need to know to open your digital door to all!
