Mostly Musical Shabbat at Temple Sinai is the first Friday of every month and is a sensory-friendly experience. The music is informal and lively — dancing and singing along are encouraged. The service features the Temple Sinai Band; visual tefillah to follow along in Hebrew, English or pictures; sign language during a portion of the service; a quiet room with a live stream of the service; and fidget toys.

In recognition of Jewish Disability Awareness and Inclusion Month, Temple Sinai presented a screening of “My Hero Brother” on Saturday, Feb. 3 with a Skype question-and-answer session afterward with the producer. The evening reception featured an art exhibit by artists with disabilities.
