Jewish Disabilities Network – JDN Social 

Jewish Disabilities Network (JDN) is a collaborative initiative of Jewish agencies, organizations, and synagogues working together to create an inclusive and embracing Jewish community for people with disabilities of all ages and their families. JDN Social is the social programming segment of the Jewish Disabilities Network. JDN is supported, in part, by a grant from Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County.

Through disabilities-friendly holiday and Havdalah celebrations, inclusive volunteer opportunities, and other social programming, JDN Social provides opportunities for people with disabilities and their family to participate, connect, and feel a sense of belonging to the Jewish community. JDN Social offers programs for all ages, ranging from young children to adults with disabilities.
