ACCESS COMMITTEE         (Summary: 2413)
JACOBSON, NEIL

The board of Temple Sinai, Oakland, CA appointed an Access Committee as part of its Lech Lecha long-range plan which recognized that “efforts must be made to make our congregation a comfortable and welcoming place for all.” The committee included members from the Facilities and Social Action Committees as well as a board member and members with direct concerns about access. They created a detailed two-part plan: The first part focused on creating a more sensitive environment to ensure that all those with specific access concerns feel welcome and able to participate in congregational life. The second section prioritizes the structural improvements necessary both to bring the synagogue up to code and to make it as accessible as possible. The board approved the implementation of the first part and requested a multi-year plan for implementation of section II.
