Ruderman Synagogue Inclusion Project
You may have recently noticed a new logo at the bottom of our web pages, that of the Ruderman Synagogue Inclusion Project (along with those of the Synagogue Council of MA, the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism, and our web hosting service Jvillage).
Temple Aliyah is proud to be a participant in the RSIP, a partnership between CJP and the Ruderman Family Foundation that supports synagogues in creating communities where people of all abilities are valued equally and participate fully. The RSIP offers access to local and national inclusion experts, consultations to develop innovative synagogue inclusion strategies, and opportunities for congregational communities to teach, network, and share best practices.
