Here are the seven webinars: 1) Inclusion Is a Jewish Value Most Jewish organizations, including those focused on social justice (Tikkun Olam) issues, ground their work deeply in Jewish values. As the Jewish world puts serious work into becoming more inclusive, the temptation exists to define inclusion separate from the Jewish mission of the organization – a recent outgrowth of our tradition’s focus on Tikkun Olam. In fact, the roots of inclusive values, middot, can be found in the Torah, and there are serious and meaningful discussions of inclusion in the Talmud. This training will help organizations situate inclusion within our Jewish values, within Tikkun Olam, as well as address the intersection between inclusion and modern halachic concerns for organizations serving the Jewish public. 2) How to Create and Implement Successful Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Initiatives - Best Practices and Must-Haves: From Will to Skill. The decision to prioritize diversity is an important move forward on an organization’s DEI journey, but the gap can be large between this well-intentioned decision and successful outcomes. We will bring together leaders from the most successful organizations to share the benefit of their experiences and their secrets for success. This includes Jews with multiple minority status, including those of color, members of the LGBTQIA+ community, women in leadership, and more. 3) How to Ensure Legal Rights and Compliance Obligations - Exploring the Rights of Employees and Participants, and the Obligations of Jewish Organizations Under U.S. Law At RespectAbility, we believe strongly that the greatest motivator and argument around inclusion is the value it brings both to the organization and to the person. Even with this backdrop, we recognize that parties will occasionally find themselves at points of disagreement. At that point, it becomes important for everyone to know the nature of existing legal rights and obligations. This session will cover those topics, including the special sensitivities and limitations applying to religious organizations. 4) How to Ensure Accessible Events Organizational representatives will be given RespectAbility’s Accessibility Checklist and will be taught how to use it. Although 72 percent of nonprofit organizations say they have a policy of nondiscrimination against people with disabilities, too few take simple steps to make their programming truly accessible. For example, fewer than 60 percent of organizations have their events held in physically accessible spaces. Fewer than one-third (30 percent) of organizations offer opportunities for participants at public events to request accommodations like sign language interpreters, live captioning or food allergy alternatives. This session will train organizations to ensure that their practices match their principles. 5) How to Ensure A Welcoming Lexicon, Accessible Websites and Social Media and Inclusive Photos Today’s website is the front lobby of an organization, and social media is fast supplanting the more traditional ways that our organizations connect with the public. Our research shows that Jewish organizations are not yet using website basics for accessibility, like captioned videos, screen reader-friendly designs and photo description/alt-text. Run by RespectAbility’s communications team and partners, this webinar will give a nonprofit everything it needs to know to open its digital door, along with the language that invites all people in to participate. 6) How to Recruit, Accommodate and Promote Jewish Leaders with Disabilities for Paid Employment and Volunteer Leadership A large percentage of nonprofits RespectAbility surveyed agree that the best solutions for the inclusion of a subgroup must incorporate the experience and knowledge of that subgroup, yet less than half of the nonprofits surveyed reported having a person with a disability on staff, let alone in leadership. We envision a training for HR and inclusion professionals to teach them everything they need to know to recruit, hire, accommodate, retain and promote people with disabilities. 7) How to Advance Disability Inclusion in Jewish Education Organizations will learn about fellow organizations advancing Jewish Inclusion through best practices in Jewish Day Schools. For too long Jewish parents of children with disabilities have been faced with a stark decision: get my children the services they need or get them an education in a Jewish day school. We will share the successes of organizations looking to end this dichotomy such as Sulam in Rockville Maryland; Gateways: Access to Jewish Education in Boston, Massachusetts; and Hidden Sparks, based in New York City. Each has pioneered a different approach to make this dream a reality, and we will learn what they did, how they did it, and most importantly how we can learn from them in our own communities. read less

For over 60 years, Camp JCA Shalom has been the “Camp for All Seasons.” Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall, thousands of campers and staff experience the magic of Camp JCA Shalom. Camp’s vision of Tikkun Olam – creating a better world – is fulfilled through a positive Jewish living experience in the natural setting of the Shalom Institute. In our warm and supportive environment, campers experience living, learning and playing in a group setting that encourages personal growth and self-discovery. Campers also have fun! They participate in a variety of programs and activities daily, they make new and lasting friendships and develop a wealth of new skills and interests. Our campers go home with a lifetime of cherished memories, new skills, and a positive self-image. It is truly an unforgettable experience for all! We will create our Camp JCA magic in the beautiful Angeles National Forest at Gold Creek Center! Camp staff has been thorough and tenacious in search of the best location and Gold Creek Center is ideal for us. The beautiful, natural setting has the camp vibe we are used to. We will be able to maintain our cabin-centered approach to the camp experience with cabin-like housing units (that are air-conditioned and have attached bathrooms and showers!). Campers will experience the same Camp JCA Shalom culture and community that leads to making great friendships and experiencing life-changing moments. Camp remains a safe place for your child to grow and learn and have fun. The campus is secure on a private mountain road and we will not be sharing the site with another group as in most of the other locations that were considered. We will have security on-site as we did in Malibu. Gold Creek Center is beautifully tucked away at the foot of the magnificent mountains of the Angeles National Forest, just 20-30 minutes from the heart of the San Fernando Valley, Simi Valley, and Santa Clarita and less than 45 minutes from the Conejo Valley and West Los Angeles. The 270+ acres include a pool, ball fields, basketball courts (indoor and outdoor), air-conditioned indoor program spaces, and the activities and fun you are used to from camp in Malibu. The site allows us to do the activities our campers love – gaga, ropes course, arts and crafts (tie dye!), “Jamba Jews” bike blenders, archery, gardening, water activities, pioneer living, outdoor cooking, nature walks, beach trips, overnights, mountain biking, horse and animal experiences, Israeli dance and Israel programming, song sessions, Shabbat services, and so much more! Our chef Jorge and his kitchen staff will be with us all summer, along with Robbo and our top-notch counselors and specialists. https://www.campjcashalom.com/blog/summer-2019/ 8955 Gold Creek Rd, Sylmar, CA 91342 read less
