Jewish Disability Awareness, Acceptance, & Inclusion

Our tradition teaches us to strive to be inclusive of all people. During the month of February, we think especially of ways in which we can be inclusive of people with disabilities as we observe Jewish Disability Awareness and Inclusion Month.  

In Pirke Avot, The Ethics of our Ancestors, we read, “Do not separate yourself from the community.” And so, in turn, we must strive to ensure that no one among us is separated from us. We welcome and support children, teens, and adults with disabilities and mental health conditions, as well as their families and caregivers. We aspire to be a more inclusive community. Please tell us how we can support your Jewish journey. If you require a modification in order to participate in worship, learning, meetings or events, please contact Abra Lee so we may learn more about the needs of our community.

If you would like to become a partner in supporting our journey toward inclusion, we welcome you. Contact Abra Lee at alee@tbj.org or 973-379-1555 x6676

TBJ gratefully acknowledges the generous support of the Barbara & Eli Hoffman Fund for its years of support of inclusive Jewish education for our synagogue’s youth.
