Jewish Disability Awareness & Inclusion Month (JDAIM) Lesson Plans (2017–18)

Jewish Disability Awareness & Inclusion Month (JDAIM) is a unified national initiative during the month of February that aims to raise disability awareness and foster inclusion in Jewish communities worldwide.

In the Philadelphia area, the Jewish Special Needs/Disability Inclusion Consortium works to expand opportunities for families of students with disabilities. The Consortium is excited to share these comprehensive lesson plans with schools, youth groups, and early childhood centers in our area.

We appreciate you making time for teachers to use these lessons during February—or whenever it’s convenient for you.

For additional resources, please email me at gkaplan-mayer@jewishlearningventure.org or call me at 215-320-0376.

Thank you to our contributors Faye Benshetler, Suzanne Gold, and Ellen Walters, and to our Whole Community Inclusion Intern Mikey Hess Webber for her hard work on this project. Download the full lesson plans below, from 2017 and 2018.

Sincerely,

Gabrielle Kaplan-Mayer,
Director, Whole Community Inclusion
