JDAIM Shabbat, February 17, 2018
In February 2018, Adath Jeshurun will observe the 10th Annual Jewish Disability Awareness and Inclusion Month (JDAIM.) The Inclusion Committee, in cooperation with the Jewish Family and Children Services, sponsors activities to raise awareness and encourage action to include people with disabilities in all aspects of synagogue life. The Adath Inclusion Committee is dedicated to making the synagogue accessible to all people, especially those who experience special needs and challenges. This year, on Shabbat Terumah, our presenter will be Albert Walla, who will speak and enlighten us on "Being Jewish and Deaf—My Experiences". This should be a very interesting presentation as Mr. Walla speaks through a voice ASL Interpreter.
