With more than 60 million Americans living with a disability, it’s not uncommon for families in Jewish Baltimore to know a child, sibling, neighbor or friend who experiences some kind of disability.
We are devoted to the inclusion of children and adults who live with disabilities. Whether it’s through education, advocacy programs, hands-on training and rehabilitation, we strive to help those with disabilities excel in their day-to-day lives.
In Leviticus 19:14, we are commanded, “You shall not insult the deaf, or place a stumbling block before the blind.”
Stumbling blocks come in many forms, from less-than-accessible buildings, employment challenges and educational barriers to healthcare that is difficult to access and navigate.
We work tirelessly to remove these stumbling blocks and provide opportunities for people of all abilities to achieve their highest potential and lead independent, fulfilled lives as members of our community.
In Jewish Baltimore, each person is cared for, welcomed and accepted.
