ABOUT YACHAD:

Yachad, The National Jewish Council for Disabilities is a thriving global organization dedicated to addressing the needs of all Jewish individuals with disabilities and ensuring their inclusion in every aspect of Jewish life. The inclusive design aims to ensure persons with diverse abilities their rightful place within the Jewish community, while helping to educate and advocate to the Jewish world for a greater understanding, acceptance, outreach, and a pro-disability attitude.

Our diverse services include, but are not limited to: social programming for all age groups; counseling services for individuals and families; weekend retreats; extensive parent support services; sibling services; vocational training and job placement; professional advocates and case managers; summer camps for members of all ages; special needs yeshivas; shabbat programs; Day Habilitation programs; Israel Birthright trips for persons with mobility and/or special learning needs; social skills development; lobbying for pro-disability legislation on the local, state, and federal levels; high school and university leadership program.

Our membership is divided into three groups:

  • Junior Yachad (8 to 15 years of age)
  • Senior Yachad (16 – 25 years or age)
  • Rayim Yachad (26 years of age and above)
