JCC Association of North America Selects Beit Issie Shapiro as its Strategic Partner for Inclusion in Early Childhood Education
“We are incredibly proud that global leadership in inclusion and accessibility comes to us from Israel, through the remarkable innovators at Beit Issie Shapiro.”
JCC Association of North America has launched a new partnership with Beit Issie Shapiro, to expand inclusion programming across the JCC movement, with a focus on strengthening early intervention for children and toddlers with disabilities and developmental delays. Through a pilot program that includes customized assessments, a new framework for inclusion in JCCs, trainings, and workshops, Beit Issie Shapiro specialists will help JCC early childhood educators strengthen their capacity to meet the developmental, emotional and physical needs of thousands of children and families in the U.S. and Canada.
Doron Krakow, President and CEO of JCC Association, celebrated the partnership, commenting: “Jewish Community Centers are the town squares of Jewish life in the neighborhoods and cities they serve with such dedication. But being a true town square means being accessible to all. Together with Beit Issie Shapiro, we will invite untold thousands of children and families to join us in the square, making it and all of us an even better version of ourselves. We are incredibly proud that global leadership in inclusion and accessibility comes to us from Israel, through the remarkable innovators at BIS.”
