Ten years ago, in our continuing effort to build a fully inclusive community, Congregation Rodeph Sholom developed our SHIREINU (Our Songs) Special Needs Worship Services, open to members and non-members alike, providing families the opportunity to worship together in an accessible, interactive, and sensitive environment.
Today, Shireinu has become a nationally-followed model of accessible worship services for those with sensory sensitivity, needing visual support, and other special needs.
Help us mark these past 10 years of inclusion and look forward to the next 10!
We will gather in the Schafler Forum for a joyful Shireinu-style Erev Shabbat service, during which we’ll hear from a panel of Shireinu families, who will reflect on the meaning and impact this program has had in their lives. Following the service, stay for a festive oneg to celebrate this milestone!
All are welcome!
