Please visit the Disabilities Inclusion Learning Center, our online learning center open to all.  Developed by the URJ in partnership with the Ruderman Family Foundation, the site features engaging and impactful skill building study sessions, videos and other resources provided by leading disabilities inclusion experts on creating accessible learning, vocational, social, worship and communal experiences for people of all ages.

Signing of the ADA

Urge Congress to oppose the ADA Education and Reform Act of 2017, which would would undermine some of the most important measures that protect equal accessibility for individuals with disabilities.

The Religious Action Center and the Union for Reform Judaism are proud to partner with the Ruderman Family Foundation on the URJ’s Presidential Disabilities Inclusion Initiative. The goals of this project include working as an organization to have disabilities become a feasible priority in all of our work, helping our congregations to become more fully inclusive and supporting the RAC in its legislative and educational advocacy work related to disabilities rights.
