Mitzvah Day Together promotes involvement in Mitzvah Day by people with disabilities and/or mental health problems, and was formally launched on 10th July 2013.
Boaz Kramer, Israeli Paralympic silver medallist and Director of the Israel Sports Centre for the Disabled, spoke at the launch event hosted by Langdon. Through sports, people with disabilities can gain a sense of success, something which is often lacking in their lives. Volunteering can give the same sense of success, achievement and purpose. Alison Rosen, Chief Executive of Langdon, highlighted the recent achievements of Langdon Brady Club members in their Yoni Jesner Award, supported by the Judith Trust, many of whom are keen to continue volunteering in the Jewish community.
The Judith Trust is delighted that, through our Inclusion Campaign, inclusion is high on the agenda for major Jewish communal organisations such as Mitzvah Day, and we look forward to being part of Mitzvah Day Together 2013.
