Raising expectations


Join Shalom Orlando in celebrating Jewish Disability Awareness, Acceptance and Inclusion Month. We recognize JDAAIM because we know that nearly 20 percent of our population live with a disability. To put that in perspective:

• 52 million adults in the United States live with a disability

• 10,000 Jews in Central Florida live with a disability

• 55 children in the Richard S. Adler Early Childhood Center live with a disability, which is almost three per classroom.

In short, everyone knows someone who is living with a disability, and all of those individuals deserve a space in our community.
