Join us at our ​annual ​Shabbat recognizing Jewish Disability Awareness Acceptance and Inclusion Month (JDAIM). B'nai member Dr. Dave Gordon will moderate as four congregants, all living with chronic health conditions, share their stories, their condition's impact on them, and how we as a community might provide support through awareness and inclusivity.

Chronic health conditions are ​sometimes referred to as "invisible" since the individual looks "fine by all appearances." In addition, doctors are sometimes slow to diagnose or misdiagnose a condition. How do our panelists cope with this? What advice might they have for others managing a chronic condition? How can we be more aware and responsive to their needs as a community?

Schedule for Living with Chronic Health Conditions: Learning From Our Community Shabbat:

10:00 - 1​0​:3​5 am​ ​  Shacharit Service
​10:35 - 11:15           Panel ​​and Q & A, moderated by Dr. Dave Gordon with four B'nai Havurah members
11:15 – 11:30          Conclusion with Prayer for Healing and Mourner's Kaddish                       

As is our tradition, a virtual kiddush and Motzi (blessings for wine/grape juice and challah) will follow the service, along with shared memories from those observing a yahrzeit.  

Please join us for this important Shabbat service as we work together to better understand chronic conditions and how we can support those living daily with them.
