Disabilities

One of every five Israelis has a disability. Only half of Israeli adults with disabilities are employed. One quarter of working-age adults with severe disabilities cannot even cover their monthly expenses. The Myers-JDC-Brookdale Institute’s Research Team on Disabilities raises awareness of the needs of people with disabilities and the efforts to promote their inclusion in Israeli society.
