February is officially Jewish Disability Awareness Month (JDAM), and we’ve partnered with Matan to run a special series on Kveller to highlight the challenges, successes, and everything in between that comes with raising a child with special needs.
Through advocacy, education, and training opportunities, Matan empowers the Jewish community to include children with special needs. You can find more about them on their website here.
Every Wednesday for the month of February, we’ll be featuring a different voice from the special needs community right here on Raising Kvell, so be sure to check back in throughout the month. And if you’re curious how February was chosen for JDAM, read here to see how a Torah portion helped decide.
If you have any specific questions or topics you’d like to see addressed this month, let us know in the comments below and we’ll do our best to help you out. We’ll kick things off later today with some Hebrew School tips from Matan founder Meredith Polsky, so keep your eyes out and stick with us all month.
