It only takes one person to make a difference.

Power of One art

The Power of One was created to honor those who have made an impact in their organization in the area of inclusion. When working to change the way society views and engages with people with disabilities, it’s important to realize that one person can make a huge difference. This could be a program participant or lay leader who may not always get recognized for his/her efforts. We are honored to host this event and recognize those who make efforts to transform Jewish life in Atlanta into an inclusive environment that celebrates diversity and the uniqueness of all its members. Together, one by one, we can make a difference.

In addition to recognizing all of this year's honorees, the Robyn Berger Emerging Leader Award will be presented at the event, honoring a rising leader in the community. 


If you have further questions about Power of One or would like to attend this event, please email jaa@jewishatlanta.org.

Optional donations in an honoree's name can be made online. Donations benefit the Ina Enoch Community Disability Training Fund, which provides opportunities for emerging leaders to attend educational opportunities about inclusion and in turn share their gained knowledge with the community.

Learn more about Jewish Disability Awareness, Acceptance and Inclusion Month (JDAIM). All confirmed programs are listed on our calendar of events.
