Shul Inclusion Program


The Orthodox Union’s Synagogue Initiatives and Yachad are proud to announce a panel discussion focused on disability inclusion in synagogues. The event will be hosted at the Young Israel of Woodmere and feature opening remarks from Rav Shay Schachter, Posek of Yachad, and Rebecca Mayer, Director of Yachad NY.

Moderated by Rabbi Dr. Josh Joseph, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of the OU, the panel will feature insights from three Yachad parents: Rabbi Yehuda Minchenberg, Rabbi Menachem Penner, and Mrs. Martha Hershkovich. The panel will offer a unique perspective and provide attendees with valuable tools to enhance their understanding and connection to individuals with disabilities.

This program is being made available virtually to Shuls around the world to assist in your efforts to ensure that every member of the community feels welcome in Shul.

The program will stream on this site at 12pm Eastern time on February 28th.
