Sherith Israel welcomes all people and strives to instill a sense of belonging. In order to focus our efforts on those with disabilities and special needs, we have created an Inclusion Committee. The purpose of the committee is to brainstorm ways that a community can become more inclusive of people with disabilities and special needs, but it will also help set the agenda for ways that Sherith Israel can accommodate those needs and leave everyone feeling honored and supported.
West End Synagogue
As part of the recent sanctuary/social hall remodel, West End Synagogue installed a Williams Assisted Listening System. This state-of-the-art system allows those with hearing challenges to connect directly into our sound system via Bluetooth technology. Thanks to a generous grant from the Lori Ann Fishel Special Needs Fund in the Jewish Foundation, we will be able to continue to work on achieving our goal of 100% inclusion.
