Inclusion: Connecting Everyone to Jewish Life in Calgary


Calgary Jewish Federation is committed to encouraging a welcoming, inclusive Jewish community, where people of all abilities can enjoy the benefits of a warm and caring community.


Since 2009, the Task Force on Inclusion of People with Disabilities has held programs to increase awareness in all community institutions of the value of inclusion and ways to be more inclusive.
