Har HaShem is pleased to put on another No Shushing Shabbat service on June 19, 2015 at 6:00 pm. Everyone is welcome and 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!” This service was created so that everyone can enjoy Shabbat together in a meaningful way. People with disabilities, those who have mental health challenges, and their friends and families are invited to the service. There will be sensory toys, a sign language interpreter, and gluten-free foods at the oneg.
