Sandy Springs, September 10, 2019: When the High Holidays begin, observers with disabilities and special needs will have a special and customized place to come celebrate and pray at Temple Emanu-El. Thanks to the Jewish Abilities Alliance, a part of The Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta, a grant that makes it possible.

Congregation cantor, Lauren Adesnik, speaking on behalf of its Inclusion Awareness Committee, said, “An average of 1 in 4 people, from childhood to adulthood live with a disability, different or special need. To make prayer and Jewish communal life accessible to everyone regardless of need, we are.” More specifically, it will make prayer accessible for those who have different learning styles or special needs.
