This is Yachad!
We are grateful to the Orthodox Union and our other generous partners for providing the matching funds for our campaign.
ALL GIFTS ARE DOUBLED!!!
What is Yachad? It is so much to so many.
For 40 years, Yachad has been creating a world where every single Jew – regardless of ability – has a place in the community. Through daily inclusion programs, community shabbatons, integration in summer camps, teen volunteering, and sensitivity training in schools, Yachad is teaching the Jewish Community how to give everyone a place. This is Yachad!
With our 6 divisions comprising of 10 regions around the United States, Canada & Israel, our network of 4 IVDU schools, Summer department incorporating 25 inclusion camps, JUF’s day-hab, job training & placement, REACH’s nationwide resource and referral service & Our Way for the deaf community, This is Yachad!
Here in New York, we have thriving community-based programs in Brooklyn, Long Island, Manhattan and Monsey. We run 13-15 programs a week including programs in partnership with local schools, music, bowling, comedy, cooking, art, parsha, social skills groups, holiday programming and Shabbatonim. We are also thrilled to offer sensitivity training workshops and educational programming for our community partners. A highlight for us this year has been expanding our programs to include single gender programs and reopening community based Shabbatonim.
JUF operates services through OPWDD in Brooklyn and Long Island. We provide day programming and vocational services to over 90 participants. Through internships and paid employment placements we support our participants in over 30 different placements!
But, as always, your help is needed. We have so much more we want to accomplish and provide for the community.
We are counting on your help on #GivingDay2022! Every dollar you give will be matched dollar-for-dollar!
Thank you for partnering with Yachad. Your support allows us to offer important services and opportunities within our community today and in the future.
