Jewish Disabilities Awareness Month (JDAM) ended in February, but the energy and intentions behind this national effort to raise awareness and encourage communities to take action to become more inclusive are going strong. #JDAM14 was full of dynamic, passionate programs locally and nationally. The voices of people in the Jewish community who are writing about disability and inclusion is also a big part of spreading the word.

One of our favorite blogs, Zeh Lezeh, recently published a roundup of fifteen evocative pieces that were published during JDAM14. We hope that you’ve already seen most of them, but in case you’ve missed any of them, we encourage you to check out the JDAM14 roundup.

Please read, share, discuss, comment… and look for more voices here on “The New Normal” throughout the year.

To judge wether or not JDAM was truly successful we must in my opinion look as much if not more at what is happening now in March and the coming months than at the month of February itself. For more of my thoughts on the subject you can read my latest post on Matan’s blog. "What constitutes success?”
