February is Jewish Disabilities Awareness Month, a month to raise awareness and foster inclusion of people with disabilities and their families in Jewish communities worldwide. On Friday, February 27 at 7:30 p.m. Beth Am will celebrate our 5th Annual “Disability Awareness and Inclusion Shabbat,” an inspirational and joyous service where individuals and families affected with special needs are specifically recognized and honored. This evening provides an opportunity to celebrate the rich, varied and equally valued abilities of ALL of our congregants. We ask that you contribute to the unity and strength of our beautifully diverse Beth Am community by attending this special evening. If you or a guest requires specific accommodations, please call the office at 215-886-8000.
