Camp Havaya’s Inclusion Statement
Camp Havaya, the world’s only Reconstructionist summer camp, is deeply committed to welcoming staff and campers of every stripe. Learn how camp builds celebratory community every day by browsing their page on diversity and inclusion. About halfway down the page you’ll find specific information on disability inclusion at camp.
Jewish Learning Venture
Whether you’re a family member, educator, spiritual leader, or congregation member looking to learn more about meeting the inclusion needs of children with disabilities, Reconstructing Judaism’s friends at Jewish Learning Venture (JLV) have tools, trainings, and resources for you. While their in-person programs are based in the Greater Philadelphia area, through JLV’s jkidACCESS initiative, you can join live events online, watch videos, read social stories, download lesson plans, and more to bolster your understanding of Whole Community Inclusion.
Matan helps Jewish educators, lay leaders, clergy, administrators, and communities meet the needs of individuals—particularly kids—with a wide variety of learning, developmental, and mental health challenges. Besides offering consultations, trainings, and workshops to communal leaders and educators, Matan’s website also hosts resources such as webinars and lesson plans.
