Welcome

Rimon is dedicated to the Jewish Experience. It is a place to learn about Judaism, experience it, and debate it. No matter what a person’s background, Rimon is a place where one can ask, study, and feel at home.

All of our teachers–those from Yeshiva and those we have picked from the larger community of Jewish educators–come together to represent a plurality of backgrounds, religious viewpoints, teaching styles, and lives. And our visitors, neighbors, students, donors, and friends will all help make us what we hope to be: a family, an oasis, and a bridge between the traditional and contemporary worlds.

Inclusive Faith Supports

Building Connections and Community Supports with Your Congregation or Faith Community: A Workshop for Individuals, Families, and Community Members

Sunday Afternoon, 2-5 p.m. June 3, 2012

There is growing recognition that inclusion in faith communities can be a door to relationships and inclusion in the wider community for individuals with disabilities and their families, and that people with developmental disabilities bring gifts and service to congregational life. Although there are still experiences of being excluded from faith communities, increasing numbers of congregations and faith communities in New Jersey and across the country are developing a variety of inclusive ministries and supports for children and adults with disabilities and their families. This workshop is designed for individuals, families, and community members and will provide strategies and resources for building connections with their own faith congregations as a source of community support.

Light refreshments provided.

Date                                        Duration

June 3, 2012                         3  hours                      2:00 – 5:00 p.m.
