About the Agudas Achim Disability Inclusion Committee

   The Agudas Achim Disability Inclusion Committee was formed in February 2018 on the heels of a very successful Disability Inclusion and Awareness weekend. The purpose of the committee is to promote inclusion and access for individuals with disabilities at Agudas Achim, whether they are members or guests. 
   The committee held its first meeting in early March 2018 and is chaired by Barbara Elkin. 
   In addition to developing the Disability Inclusion Questionnaire, the Committee works with staff and leadership of the synagogue to implement a self-assessment, using the Disability Self-Assessment Toolkit developed by the Jewish Federation of Greater Washington and makes recommendations to the Board and staff for changes needed to promote disability access and inclusion at Agudas Achim, based in part on responses to the survey.
   Those interested in being on the committee, want more information about the work of the committee, or would like to be on an email list about activities or events related to Disability Inclusion, please email inclusion@agudasachim-va.org.
