HHS Hosting Two Disability Awareness and Inclusion Shabbat Services

Two Disability Awareness and Inclusion Shabbat Services at Har HaShem

The Boulder community is invited to attend one of two special Disability and Awareness Shabbat programs on Friday, March 16 at 6:00 pm at Congregation Har HaShem. 

The services – as with all services at Har HaShem – will be welcoming to individuals and families who may need to move, make noise, or participate in a way that helps them accommodate their needs.

 

In the main sanctuary, Rabbi Bronstein will speak about her journey with epilepsy, and Elizabeth Lichtenstein will talk about her experience parenting a child with Down syndrome and how the Jewish community can be an ally to people touched by disability. Sign language interpretation will be provided.

At the Youth Shabbat service, in the South Building, Yael Greene will talk about her experiences as a child, teen, and, now, young adult with autism.

 

Har HaShem’s Disability Awareness and Inclusion Committee, which works to expand our congregation’s understanding of inclusion and appreciation for individuals of different abilities, has arranged these special events and sponsored the oneg. Contact Inclusion@HarHaShem.org with questions.
