The Jewish United Fund, Jewish Child & Family Services and other community agencies are coming together to ensure that the one in five local Jews living with disabilities get the support they need to live their best possible life.
On the next episode of the public affairs program "Sanctuary," Jodi Newmark, director of JCFS' Encompass, and Rabbi Michael Schwab, of North Suburban Synagogue Beth El in Highland Park, will focus on Jewish adults living with intellectual and developmental disabilities and discuss how Chicago's Jewish community is leading the charge to make Jewish life accessible for all.
This episode of "Sanctuary" will air at noon every Sunday in November on ABC's Live Well Network, 7.2. Check local broadcast or cable listings for the channel. The program also can be viewed any time on the Jewish United Fund website, www.juf.org/videos .
"Sanctuary" is a joint production of the Jewish United Fund of Metropolitan Chicago and the Chicago Board of Rabbis, in cooperation with ABC7.
