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 by a grant from Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County.

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