For Israel’s 700,000 adults with disabilities, this year will be brighter because of JDC’s special-needs partnership, Israel Unlimited, which was found together with the Ruderman Family Foundation and the Government of Israel. The goal of the collaborative effort: to successfully integrate these Israelis into society and live productive and healthy lives. The program is crucial as people with disabilities comprise 20% of Israel’s population.

This past weekend, JDC Board member Jay Ruderman and his family’s foundation received some much-deserved recognition for their efforts to help Israel’s disabled community. The Wall Street Journal featured Jay as its “Donor of the Day.” The piece serves as a real tribute to Jay’s vision and commitment as a philanthropist, and we feel grateful for his support as a JDC Board member, partner, and genuine advocate for Israelis with special needs.
