United Synagogue holds first ever Physical Accessibility Fair and Forum

The United Synagogue recently held their first ever Physical Accessibility Fair and Forum at South Hampstead United Synagogue, with 30 people in attendance.

This event was designed for those with all forms of physical disability, their carers and those close to them, with the aim of engaging in an open and honest conversation about physical disabilities. Participants were able to discuss the impact their disabilities have on them and how their communities can best help them.

Attendees received information and support by eight charities in the sector during the Charity Showcase. The attendees then had an opportunity to share their experiences of living in the Jewish community with a physical disability and how we can best move forward in our advancement towards inclusivity and accessibility.

Daniella Neifeld, Community Participation Manager at the United Synagogue, said: “The Physical Accessibility Fair and Forum was a powerful evening thanks to the vulnerability of the incredible attendees and their support for each other. It left us with some clear action points as well as outlined how much there is to overcome in accessibility.”
