Joseph Weisman’s experience with Shireinu special needs service

I have been involved with Congregation¬†Rodeph Sholom’s Shireinu services for several years. Shereinu translates to “our songs” and is a religious service tailored to be more accessible to people with disabilities and their families. It is very rewarding to see the positive effect that my work has, and to see how happy it makes people to be in a more accessible environment. I felt that this experience was especially meaningful to me, as my sister, Sadie, is on the autism spectrum. Seeing other families with young members¬†with disabilities getting involved in the service brought me a lot of joy, as these kinds of services were not around when Sadie was their age.
