Federations, Ruderman Foundation, Launch Initiative for Disabled

JewishPress Logo

The Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) and the Ruderman Family Foundation are launching The Ruderman Family Foundation Opportunity Initiative, which will place young adults with disabilities in internships and fellowships at Jewish federations across the U.S., beginning in 2014.

“By making people with disabilities more visible, we will raise awareness of the importance of inclusion, thus strengthening the Jewish community and benefitting us all,” said Jay Ruderman, President of the Ruderman Family Foundation.

The initiative will launch as a one-year pilot for five Jewish federations, with the plan to expand to more federations if the project moves into its second year. “Our core Jewish values compel us to further embrace and include people with disabilities in our community,” said Jerry Silverman, president and CEO of JFNA.
