Sharon Shapiro-Lacks, Founding Executive Director
Mrs. Sharon Shapiro-Lacks founded Yad HaChazakah-JDEC in 2006 with the support of ten other board members. A woman who typically zips around by motorized wheelchair, Mrs. Shapiro-Lacks envisions Jewish communities where people with obvious or hidden disabilities are sought and valued for the strengths they bring. In her vision, leaders and community members will want to improve physical, communication, and attitudinal access to shuls, yeshivas, batei midrash, workplaces, shops, and family life - not only for the benefit to specific individuals, but also for the enrichment of entire communities.
Mrs. Shapiro-Lacks has worked in the disability policy and human services arenas for nearly 25 years, spending most of her tenure in executive and management positions. As Executive Director, she is a nonvoting member of the board of directors.
