Our mission…

is to further promote the interests of people with disabilities in the Jewish community.

This will be accomplished by the sharing of personal stories, thoughts and everyday issues through open communication.

We, as a whole, will make a difference by expanding our reach and empowering ourselves to be the best we can possibly be.
