Shared by Rimma Zelfand at the 2015 CHAI Celebration
The CHAI Celebration is a biennial event supporting JF&CS Services for People with Disabilities. This year’s event, held on Wednesday, October 21 at Congregation Mishkan Tefila, celebrated 10 years of the CHAI Works program. JF&CS CEO Rimma Zelfand welcomed the crowd of 250 people to the event, sharing the following:
There are many strong, powerful words in the room this evening. They represent people with different abilities, which is how I prefer to think about the participants in our Services for People with Disabilities program. When I think of CHAI Works , three words jump to my mind: dignity, community, and independence.
