The Avoda Negisha website aims to help people with disabilities become integrated into the workforce. The website includes job listings intended for people with disabilities, information and tools to help them find employment, support for employers wishing to employ people with disabilities, and information for professionals in related fields. The initiative is a collaboration between JDC-Israel, various Israeli government offices and ministries and other non-governmental organizations.
Note: The website is currently only available in Hebrew, but there is a chat option that shows up in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen (look for the speech bubble and the words "שוחח איתנו"), and there is a call center: *5427. If you have trouble understanding the Hebrew on the site, you can chat or call a representative who should then be able to help you in English, put you in touch with someone who can, or let you leave a message for an English-speaker. If you are still having trouble, let us know.
