With a special performance by
Neshama Carlebach and Josh Nelson

Join the Ruderman Synagogue Inclusion Project (RSIP) and CJP for an unforgettable evening dedicated to creating an inclusive Jewish community. We’ll celebrate progress and welcome our new RSIP Congregational Partners and Affiliates.

We’ll hear from an engaging keynote speaker, Julia Watts Belser, who will discuss “Disability and the Arts of Midrash.” She will explore how disability can be a powerful source of “embodied Torah” and can open up new perspectives on Jewish ethics and new ways of imagining God’s presence in this world.

Neshama Carlebach and Josh Nelson will open and close the program with a joyful a cappella performance.

The event is free of charge; however, space is limited and pre-registration is required. While online registration is closed, we still have spots available.  Please contact Jeannine at Jeanninew@cjp.org or 617-457-8824 to sign up for the event.
