Partnerships are the at the root of our work. When the strengths of Waypoint join the strengths of other organizations in our community, great things happen. Our partnership with New England Yachad is no exception.
Yachad is a national organization “dedicated to addressing the needs of all Jewish individuals with disabilities and ensuring their inclusion in every aspect of Jewish life.” Although I can guess that it’s the case with all chapters, the New England chapter is one that’s full of life and a contagious joy that shows up when these diverse communities of people participate together.
This year we had the opportunity to run two days of adventure with Yachad. The first took place in August as we kayaked on the Charles River. As you’ll see in the pictures below, the day couldn’t have been better. The sun was shining and the weather was hot. It was a wonderful day to be on the water sharing in the free gifts of nature and community.
