Today is Tu B’Av, the Jewish day of love. Traditionally, this marked the beginning of the grape season in Israel and unmarried women would dance in the vineyards wearing all white. It is now a special day for weddings in Israel. This week, we are featuring an organization that creates opportunities for meaningful relationships, love, and marriage for people with disabilities.
The social hall in a Petah Tikvah community center, just outside Tel Aviv, seemed more like a nightclub, what with a cool DJ, vibrating music, endless food and beverages, and spirited chatter, laughter and singing.
PETACH TIKVAH, Israel – At the nonprofit organization Inbar, Shalomi Eldar and Shoshi Margolin empower people who have disabilities to achieve self-acceptance and find romantic partners. The mission is two-pronged: to remove individuals’ internal barriers to dating and to advocate changing societal attitudes towards individuals who have disabilities.
