We offer exciting and innovative educational, social, cultural, recreational, fitness and communal programs to thousands of members and participants each year.
We strive to nurture life balance in an inclusive environment where everyone is welcome. Inspired by Jewish values, we acknowledge and respect peoples' differences no matter what their beliefs or abilities might be. As we proudly celebrate Jewish holidays and heritage, we also embrace our neighbors and provide events, programs and classes for everyone to enjoy.
Everyday thousands of people of every age, background, race, religion, gender and sexual orientation come through our doors with the expectation and promise that they will be welcomed and embraced. Our commitment to provide a safe and open environment is core to our values and our mission and will continue to be at the heart of all that we do.
PROGRAMS FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES
We are committed to the integration of people of all abilities into our programs. Judaism teaches us B'Tzelem Elohim (we are all created in the image of God), and we acknowledge and respect peoples' differences and welcome people of all ages and all abilities in all JCC experiences.
Inclusion means having the same opportunities and choices as everyone else. It means being with friends who share interests, not disabilities. It means having access and support. We strive to provide continued support for the integration of people with special needs into all JCC Departmental programs.
Inclusion is an attitude, not an activity. Inclusion is belonging.
The Sabes JCC Inclusion Program is made possible through the generosity of private donors, through directed donations made possible through the Minneapolis Jewish Federation, and through the support of the Toodie and Frank Trestman Special Needs Collaborative Education Endowment.
