Jewish Disability Awareness and Inclusion Month (JDAIM)
JDAIM is a unified effort among Jewish organizations worldwide to raise awareness and foster inclusion of people with disabilities and those who love them. JDAIM is a call to action for all of us as we act in accordance with our Jewish values, honoring the gifts and strengths that we each possess. Established in 2009 by the Jewish Special Education International Consortium, JDAIM is observed each February. But the truth is, while JDAIM brings the issues of disability inclusion to the forefront, inclusion is something that we must keep focused on the rest of the year.

The Mission of Jewish Disability Awareness and Inclusion Month
The mission of Jewish Disability Awareness and Inclusion Month is to unite Jewish communities worldwide to raise awareness and champion the rights of all Jews to be included and to participate in all aspects of Jewish life like anyone else.

Why You Should Participate in JDAIM

  • Raise awareness of how people with disabilities have been regarded by Jewish and secular society and how that impacts our actions in our own lives.
  • Underscore the importance of participating in a Jewish journey.
  • Encourage Jews around the world to become genuinely empathetic and welcoming toward people with disabilities.
  • Urge Jews to welcome people with disabilities into their communities and personal lives.
  • Include people with disabilities in ALL aspects of communal life.
  • Advocate for the rights of people with disabilities.
  • Offer people with disabilities the opportunity to make their own decisions about how they participate in their Jewish community.
