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.
Jewish Disability Awareness and Inclusion Month
February is Jewish Disability Awareness and Inclusion Month (JDAIM)! Read more about JDAIM in the January 2018 Covenant (page 7).
Join us on Friday, February 8, 2019 for our Abilities Awareness Shabbat.
On Friday, February 16, 2018 we held an Abilities Awareness Shabbat, celebrating the uniqueness and completeness of each of us. We were joined by the marvelous Selah Choir and Cantor Amy Zussman. Please enjoy some photos from the choir’s rehearsal and the beginning of the Shabbat service. A big thank you to the Inclusion Committee for organizing the event! See photos of the evening here.
