Getting What We Need at PJTC  

By Diane Burr

    Our community is guided by the Jewish value of inclusion and recognizes that we are made richer by the participation of all who wish to worship, study or develop cultural or social ties to Judaism. 
    With this in mind, we continue to identify physical and cultural barriers and implement changes to expand opportunities for all. This is an ongoing process that beneifits from community input.                       

Some of the ways PJTC provides  accessibility and comfort are:

  • Accessible parking
  • A lift to the Bima for those with mobility limitations
  • Large print prayerbooks
  • Magnifying glasses (available in the lobby)
  • Audible headsets for those with hearing losses 
  • Mezuzah at wheelchair height at the front entrance
  • Sign language interpretation for large events, and with an advance request for other events
  • Accessible restrooms, and an all gender restroom in the main building
  • Safety and security guidelines reviewed and implemented on a regular basis 
  • Multi access opportunities for participation including Zoom, Facebook and You Tube. 
  • Digital High Holy Day prayer books 
  • Technical assistance for remote users.
  • Accessible front entrance
  • On site wheelchairs and walkers
  •  A quiet place (the lounge) for those desiring a break from stimulation 
  • An adjustable table that allows a wheelchair user to have Torah at an accessible height

    If you need any accommodation or have any questions, comments or suggestions about ways to make PJTC more assessable and comfortable, please contact Congregational Engagement Director Melissa Levy at melissa@pjtc.net.
 

    If you find yourself at PJTC  needing an unexpected accommodation, speak with Facilities Supervisor Alex Beck, who describes himself as “the friendly facilities guy”, and emphasizes that “I’m here to help everyone out.” Alex is usually easy to find as he frequently is doing rounds to make sure things are functioning as they should.

We are all here for each other.
