JFNA Panel for Jewish Disability Awareness Month
Dignity and personal independence are fundamental values embraced by modern society. Yet people with disabilities face significant obstacles in a world not always structured to meet their most basic needs. This session highlights how Israel is moving the needle on creating a more inclusive society for people of all abilities. Hear from Odelia Fitoussi, the first Israeli representative to the United Nations Committee on Persons with Disabilities, and from JDC Israel Unlimited, Beit Issie Shapiro and Access Israel, who are leading the charge for societal change by launching innovative programming and policy.
