Today’s website is the front lobby of an organization, and social media is fast supplanting the more traditional ways that our organizations connect with the public. We can’t help you decorate your lobby, but we can make sure that it is warm and welcoming for Jews of all kinds, including Jews with disabilities. Come learn from our dynamic and expert team everything you need to know to open your digital door to all!

Panelists Include

  • Tatiana Lee – Hollywood Inclusion Associate at RespectAbility
  • Sharon Rosenblatt – Accessibility Partners

Jewish organizations, leaders and activists are invited to a free online training series so they can learn how to welcome, respect and include people with disabilities from all backgrounds in the important work that they do.

The entire series is offered online and for free. All sessions include American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters and captions, and will be screen reader accessible. To request a copy of the accessible PowerPoint prior to the session or any additional accommodations required to participate, please email JoshuaS@RespectAbility.org.

Sharon Rosenblatt head shotSharon Rosenblatt is an accessibility professional working to improve the overall experience by a user with disabilities. With her tendency to be ‘hands on’, Sharon feels that accessibility is a right, and not a ‘nice to have’. She has been a part of the Accessibility Partners team for the over ten years as the Director of Communications, and also specializes in document remediation and web compliance testing. Her efforts have enabled developers and manufacturers to see the tremendous potential that accessibility has not just for users with disabilities, but of all abilities. Sharon is also an avid runner, and looks forward to her next race that gets her up at the crack of dawn. She’s been known to disregard weather forecasts as long as there is a finisher medal to be obtained.
