“FOR MY HOUSE SHALL BE CALLED A HOUSE OF PRAYER FOR ALL PEOPLES”
Inclusion means that all people, regardless of their ability, have the right to be a valuable and participating member of their community.
In connection with our Jewish values and Congregation BJBE’s mission, the Inclusion Committee is dedicated to creating a welcoming and accessible community for people with disabilities and their families. The purpose of this group is to ensure an inclusive worship, educational, and social experience in a supportive environment. The committee is open to all who are interested. To learn more or get involved in the Inclusion Committee, please contact the temple office at 847.940.7575.
BJBE is fully accessible and we are here to help!
In our Accessibility Center, located at the entrance of the main sanctuary, you will find resources for individuals with specific auditory, visual, and tactile needs.
Items such as hearing devices, reading glasses, large print prayer books, noise-canceling heads phones, weighted lap pads, oral and general sensory tools, and social stories are now available to borrow during services. We ask that you return them to the bin labeled “used,” after the service so that we can continue to offer these resources each week.
In addition, we have wheelchairs and walkers at our front door entry.
Please let us know if there is any way that we can help you feel welcome and comfortable at BJBE.
