Special needs purim

Beth Emet believes that we are all created in God’s image; therefore each one of us is to be valued. We take pride in welcoming individuals, couples, families, interfaith, special needs, LGBTQ, and people of all ages to engage in our spiritually vibrant and deeply caring environment firmly rooted in Jewish tradition and values.

Our leadership and members thoughtfully strive to make our building and programs accessible to those who otherwise would be denied the opportunity to participate in all aspects of synagogue life, and to meet the needs of members with special needs. We empower congregants of all ages and abilities to worship, to learn, to share the happiness of good times, and to receive comfort at wistful times.
Every congregant has a right to a rich Jewish life in a welcoming environment. Our accessible facility currently offers an entrance ramp, an elevator, and hearing devices at worship services; seating and parking accommodations can also be made prior to your visit. Our diverse programs and courses are open to all who wish to participate in lifelong learning.

Beth Emet is also is proud to help children with special learning needs benefit from a successful Jewish educational experience. School-age children are encouraged to participate in Beit Sefer (religious school), holiday celebrations, worship, and other programs through out the year. Besides hosting specially crafted events for families with members who have special needs, our director of lifelong learning and teachers will create individualized programs, modify curriculum, provide teenage teaching assistants, and any other accommodations that may be needed in order to create a successful educational experience for each and every child.

We encourage you to contact Director of Lifelong Learning Marci Dickman, or Rabbi London to discuss how you envision your Jewish journey at Beth Emet as an individual or family. We are open to working together to provide the support and/or accommodations that will provide you and your family a caring and comfortable Jewish experience.
