For over 30 years, Gesher Disability Resources has been making it possible for individuals with special needs to get together in social settings. Yad B’Yad and Keshet social groups offer men and women (ages 18 years and above) Sunday afternoon gatherings to socialize and continue their Jewish studies at their own pace. The groups are facilitated by special education teachers and meet at Gesher’s group homes as well as interesting locations out in the community.

There is an annual donation request of $50 to our member participants.



Gesher also plans accessible community outings for anyone to attend as a participant or a volunteer.  We have fun bowling, swimming, movie days and more.  Some events are strictly social and others are based around a Jewish holiday, and anyone is welcome.  Check out our full calendar of events.

One of our signature social events is our Special Needs Community Dance for adults in the disability community who are 18 years and older. Click here for more information and to register for the next one.
