Inclusion Committee: Please make sure this holiday season to make all members and visitors to our shul feel welcome. Please take the time to introduce yourself to someone new, to see if the individuals sitting near you are able to follow the services, and if they have any special needs, such as seats closer to the ba'alei tefillah and kriya because of hearing impairments, or enlarged print siddurim due to visual impairments. Please also make sure all entrances and exits are accessible and are not being blocked for people with mobility challenges, by carriages or people. The Inclusion Committee are looking for a few dedicated individuals to enhance our Committee and bring new ideas to the group. No Special Needs experience required! Just a commitment to making our Shul more welcome to all, regardless of abilities. Please contact the chair, Eta Levenson at Jeserichad@gmail.com for more information.
