RCII aims to empower every one of our Chabad communities to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for people with disabilities throughout our centers and in every program that we offer.

With Rabbis in virtually every Jewish community across the globe, Chabad represents one of the most extensive and influential outreach efforts in the Jewish world. We believe that the Ruderman Family Foundation’s partnership with Chabad will bring the message of disability inclusion to Jews everywhere. The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson z”l taught that every Jew is equal and every Jew is a valued member of our community regardless of their abilities. Our partnership with Chabad will ensure that his message is embraced by all Jews. Jay Ruderman
