Leading disability self-advocate Ari Ne’eman recipient of Ruderman Award in Inclusion

The Ruderman Family Foundation (RFF) announced on Monday that it will award the second annual Morton E. Ruderman Award in Inclusion to Ari Ne’eman, co-founder and president of the Autistic Self Advocacy Network.

The $100,000 award recognizes an individual who has made an extraordinary contribution to the inclusion of people with disabilities in the Jewish world and the greater public and is based on past achievements and the potential for future contributions to the field.

“I am deeply honored, not only because it is a very prestigious award, it means more to me because it came from a Jewish foundation,” Ne’eman recently told The Jerusalem Post.
