The Jewish Community of Amherst is committed to universal access and equal participation to spiritual and cultural life, regardless of a person’s visible or invisible disability, physical or mental health concerns, and chronic illness. We celebrate that all are made b’tzelem Elohim, in G-d’s image, (Genesis 1:26), and we honor the divine in ourselves and others when we remove the stumbling blocks (Leviticus 19:14) that marginalize disabled members of the community. For additional information about adaptations, please contact Jacob Speaks at
