South Florida Yachad, the National Jewish Council for Disabilities, recently presented a captivating speaker to the area. Richard Bernstein addressed audiences from April 11 through April 15. His venues included David Posnack Jewish Day School, Scheck Hillel Community School, Young Israel of Kendal, Yeshiva Chaim, Young Israel of Hollywood, Temple Beth Israel of Sunrise and Weinbaum Yeshiva High School. He also met with the Miami Lighthouse for the Blind.

Mr. Bernstein is a blind-from-birth attorney who works on behalf of those with disabilities. An avid runner, he has participated in 17 marathons and a number of triathlons. In 2012, he ran the Miami marathon with Team Yachad, and ever since has been a passionate supporter of Yachad’s efforts in the Jewish community.

Yachad is dedicated to addressing the needs of individuals with disabilities to facilitate their inclusion in the Jewish community. South Florida Yachad empowers children and adults who have developmental disabilities and other challenges, to lead full lives that include the opportunities to socialize, learn, work and celebrate their Jewish heritage.

Yachad programs strengthen the Jewish community by increasing awareness and understanding of individuals with special needs. Many different programs bring Yachad participants together with their typically developing peers. The friendships they develop are mutually enriching.

Yachad is a member of the Orthodox Union. For more information on the South Florida chapter, visit www.southfloridayachad.com or call Ms. Tzippi Rosen at 347-239-5703.
