B'nai Torah Ensures Access to People of All Abilities

We are proud to have an active and passionate Inclusion Committee at Congregation B'nai Torah. Here are just a few of the many adaptations and considerations our committee has taken to ensure everyone's comfort and inclusion at Congregation B'nai Torah:

  • We have flexible seating in the Sanctuary so we can create preferential seating for anyone who needs it.
  • We have signage throughout the building for our loop system, ramps and handicap accessible and family restrooms.
  • Before the pandemic, we created quiet and sensory friendly spaces during events, and we will continue to do so when we can safely host in-person events again. These spaces are always adjacent to the action but reserved for those who might need a break from noise and other sensory concerns.
  • We offer large print prayer books.
  • We host an annual program honoring our Special Friends Group. 
  • Due to the pandemic, we have also implemented engagement initiatives where volunteers and staff reach out to our more homebound members and those who need assistance with technology.


If you have any concerns, questions or suggestions for bettering the congregation, please click here to submit a B'nai Torah Inclusion Form or contact Rabbi K at rabbik@bnaitorah.org.

February Is Jewish Disability Awareness, Acceptance and Inclusion Month!

This February marks the sixth annual Jewish Disability Awareness, Acceptance and Inclusion Month (JDAIM), created to raise awareness of the needs of people with unique abilities in the Jewish community. During JDAIM, Jewish communities across the world celebrate the diverse abilities amongst us all and unify us together to learn, support and grown in disabilities inclusion. JDAIM is an opportunity to celebrate our commitment to removing barriers, celebrating diversity and connecting with our Jewish values. Making Jewish Life accessible for all is one of our most important community responsibilities.

At Congregation B'nai Torah, we are committed to responding to the ever changing needs of our community and making sure that everyone is able to participate with us.
