Inclusion Committee Mission: Temple Jeremiah is committed to being accessible and inclusive for all of its members and for the community within a Jewish context. The purpose of our committee is to help create a welcoming environment within our temple and to advocate for those of all ages with special needs by providing worship, educational, and social experiences.
The special programs are designed to be interactive, multi-sensory experiences that can be enjoyed by those of different ages and abilities. All family members and their friends and supporters are welcome to attend these programs.
Previous programs have included worship services and holiday celebrations for Rosh HaShanah, Chanukah, Purim, Passover and Shabbat – and we look forward to expanding our offerings in the future.
Thank you to those of you who joined us for Rosh HaShanah Worship on Sept. 21st.
