Thank you for your recent editorial on “The spirit of inclusion” (Nov. 14). The article highlights the new initiative, Hineinu, a national, inter-denominational effort to create inclusive Jewish communities.
The emphasis on the inclusion of individuals with disabilities and their families has been on the forefront of the Greater MetroWest community for the past five years, with the implementation of MetroWest ABLE, a program of our Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ that has been nationally recognized for its work in supporting and advocating for individuals with disabilities and their families.
MetroWest ABLE helps families make connections to community resources and assists our local congregations in being more inclusive. MetroWest ABLE envisions a community that is made whole through the active and meaningful participation of all its members, with opportunities for access to every aspect of Jewish life.
MetroWest ABLE is here as an ongoing resource to our families, synagogues, and agencies.Hineinu — We are here.
