Each February, we mark Jewish Disability Awareness Month. This year, the decision was made to add “inclusion” to the equation, and it is now called Jewish Disability Awareness and Inclusion Month. This addition may seem insignificant, but actually marks a movement toward action. 

Building awareness around an issue means that people come together to learn about and discuss it. It doesn’t imply next steps for taking action. Inclusion is a much bolder statement, calling on Jewish organizations to take action and include people with disabilities.
