Disabilities and Special Needs
As part of our focus on improving the quality of life in Israel for all its citizens, Jewish National Fund-USA is ensuring that no member of Israeli society is left behind. The fact that nearly 13% of Israel's citizens are considered physically or mentally challenged is an opportunity for us to live our values. We believe passionately that the inclusion of people with disabilities and special needs should be woven tightly into the fabric of Jewish life. All the more so in Israel.
Through a variety of initiatives and partnerships, JNF-USA provides state-of-the-art rehabilitative services, special education, and medical care in areas where they were previously unavailable. We also ensure that recreational facilities, historical sites, nature trails, and more are inclusive for visitors of all ability levels.
