Be Yourself – Upcoming “No Shushing” Inclusive Shabbat Services

No ShushingFriday evening, October 30 at 6:00 pm, Congregation Har HaShem will be hosting another No Shushing Shabbat, with the aim of including everyone in our community in Shabbat services in a meaningful way. For many people and families, attending services is a challenge. Some people with disabilities have trouble sitting still, being quiet, and managing all the different sensations like lights, sounds, even textures and tastes. To manage all of these sensations, people might need to move around, make a little noise, jump, or flap their hands. Some people may be self conscious about tending to a family member.

At this service, we’d like everyone to feel totally comfortable. If you or someone you love has a special need or disability, or even if you don’t, we invite you to join us. All are welcome and there is no RSVP required. We will also have a sign language interpreter. Everyone can feel comfortable to be who they are and to do whatever feels right to them in terms of moving around or talking. The only rule is “no shushing!”
