Yachad New England

Yachad New England is the regional branch of Yachad, a national organization for Jewish individuals with disabilities and their families. Yachad encourages the individuals it engages to attend a variant of “Birthright Israel” called “Israel Free Spirit,” which is specifically targeted toward individuals with disabilities. Per Israel Free Spirit’s website, "This journey offers a fabulous tour to Israel for young adults with disabilities. Through its dedicated and experienced staff and tour guides, great activities, and state-of-the-art specialized bus, the trip is designed for participants to have a comfortable and incredible journey." Yachad maintains partnerships with local Zionist organizations, including Combined Jewish Philanthropies, the Ruderman Family Foundation, and JewishBoston.
