Yad HaChazakah-The Jewish Disability Empowerment Center Inc.
Led by Jews with disabilities and ongoing health conditions, Yad HaChazakah-JDEC empowers people with disabilities to self-direct their lives and to live, love, learn, work, worship, and lead in Jewish communities. We do this by promoting changes in attitudes and community planning and by providing:
- Guidance and Mentoring
- Peer Networking and Support
- Advocacy and Resource Information
- Topical Forums and Learning Opportunities
- Disability Awareness and Policy Advisement
Serving individuals regardless of background, Yad HaChazakah-JDEC is geared towards the needs and cultures of Torah observant communities.
