Universal inclusion activist, educator and lawyer Matan Koch will speak at the inclusion Shabbat dinner on “Beyond Inclusion: Cultivating True Participation for People with Disabilities” following inclusion Shabbat services.

Matan Koch’s lifelong history of disability advocacy began at age 4 with a presentation to several hundred young people, continued with a term as the president of Yale University’s student disabilities community, and reached its most recent high point with his appointment by President Barack Obama to the National Council on Disability.

“I have set out to ignite a fire for universal inclusion,” Matan says on his website. “My speeches and workshops, while born of an enthusiasm for the moral and emotional imperative to include people with disabilities in all aspects of life, show that true inclusion encompasses anyone with a barrier to participation, and that the universal inclusion model in fact benefits everyone. At its heart, universal inclusion creates a world where everyone’s talents and abilities can be accessed equally, and everyone can participate fully in life.”

Services start at 6:30 p.m. with the dinner/speaker at 7:30 p.m.
