ABOUT US

The vision of the Jewish Abilities Alliance (JAA) is to promote an inclusive, spirited environment that celebrates the diversity in our community and the uniqueness of every member. This website serves as a user-friendly gateway to resources in the Jewish or general community for people with disabilities. The JAA is the Jewish community’s network that links individuals with disabilities, and their families, to resources, services, support groups, workshops and clinics and recreational programs within their community.

Jewishabilities.org features information and resources on everything from advocating for a child with a learning disability to navigating the transition to adulthood. JAA’s content is a “how to” resource, developed by a team of skilled disability-service providers. Information on early identification, behavior management, special education, health services, financial resources and benefits, housing, legal resources, transportation and so much more make JAA a unique one-stop-shop for families. The resource directory, an added bonus, is comprehensive and easy to navigate, providing quick access to local services, with the ability to filter by age and service-type.
