New England Yachad is a thriving Jewish communal organization for individuals with disabilities and special needs of all abilities, ages and Jewish denominations. Our goals include recruiting peer participants, including high schoolers, who share values of inclusion; provide family and sibling support services; and infuse Jewish content into programs and celebrate Jewish holidays with a community of friends and with Jewish educators.
NFTY in Israel is the formative travel experience for teens seeking a hands-on, educational, fun summer. Teens travel through Israel, following a chronological curriculum that brings our history to life. Our trips instill a deep connection to Israel and the Jewish people, develop a sense of pride in Jewish identity and heritage and inspire a desire to live a meaningful and engaged Jewish life.
