Please join us February 9 for Shabbat services as we honor Jewish Disability Awareness and Inclusion month. We are thrilled to have as our guest Rabbi Lauren Tuchman, who will deliver the D’var Torah.

Rabbi Tuchman received rabbinic ordination from the Jewish Theological Seminary in 2018 and is, as far as she is aware, the first blind woman in the world to enter the rabbinate. A sought-after speaker, spiritual leader, and educator, Rabbi Tuchman has taught at numerous synagogues and other Jewish venues throughout North America and was named to the Jewish Week’s 36 under 36 for her innovative leadership concerning inclusion of Jews with disabilities in all aspects of Jewish life.
