Shabbat for those with Special Needs

Yaldeinu (Our Children) is the name of our congregation’s outreach to families with children or young adults with special needs. We have prepared liturgy and an experience designed to be participatory, joyous, and relaxed!

The service is approximately 45 minutes long and led by a special needs educator. We use a special prayer book and the attendees are encouraged not only to participate but to lead as well as they can.  There is a Torah service youth over the age of 13 have the experience of being called up for an aliyah. It is a warm, nurturing, supportive environment for the youth and their families. We have special Yaldeinu services on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, too.

Yaldeinu meets once a month on a Saturday morning from 11:00 to 11:45 a.m. in the Chapel but is currently meeting on Zoom.
