The Ruderman Family Foundation announced this week the launch of a global competition for innovation in the field of inclusion of people with disabilities into society.

The competition is part of the 2013 Ruderman Prize in Disability, which will provide $250,000 in funding to be divided between five organizations in the Jewish community worldwide that offer innovative programs and services aimed at advancing the integration of the disabled in society.

“We believe this competition will generate new attention to the issue and spur new ambitions, as we work toward our goal of the full inclusion of people with disabilities in the Jewish community, so that these individuals have the same employment, social, and religious opportunities as those without disabilities,” the president of the foundation, Jay Ruderman, said in a statement.
