Did you realize that one in every five Israelis is considered disabled, making them the largest minority population in the country?’ The question is asked by Jay Ruderman, the president of the Ruderman Family Foundation, during a telephone interview from his Rehovot home following the announcement in June of the 10 winners of the inaugural Ruderman Prize in Disability. The prize bestowed upon organizations for fostering the full inclusion of people with disabilities in Jewish communities around the globe.

The four Israeli winners among the 170 applicants are Akim Israel – the National Association for the Habilitation of Children and Adults with Intellectual Disabilities; Shalva – the Association for Mentally & Physically Challenged Children in Israel; the Vertigo Dance Company; and the Reishit School in Kibbutz Rosh Tzurim.
