Temple Shalom named as a “Partner Congregation” in the Ruderman Synagogue Inclusion Project
On May 23, Temple Shalom was honored as a Partner Congregation by the Ruderman Synagogue Inclusion Project (RSIP). RSIP is a partnership between CJP and the Ruderman Family Foundation to support synagogues in creating communities where people of all abilities are valued equally and participate fully.
Selection as a Partner Congregation is a huge honor and a testament to the strong application that Rabbi Berry and members of the Inclusive Community Task Force prepared and submitted. In their announcement, RSIP cited the strong support of our clergy, particularly Rabbi Gurvis, with a strong voice in the Greater Boston Jewish Community and Rabbi Berry, as a congregational leader and educator with a clear vision for Inclusion of people with disabilities in religious education and congregational life, as well as our comprehensive strategic plan for inclusion.
