    Developmentally Different Adults Program

    Time: 7:00 pm

    The Torah frequently admonishes us: "remember that you were once strangers in the land of Egypt." The test of a community is the way it treats its most vulnerable members. In this spirit, the Ohev congregation is proud to connect with developmentally different adults in the DC area and especially those from the Jewish Foundation for Group Homes. Residents of local group homes join with our congregation for arts and crafts and music. Everyone is welcome for a festive Sukkah Party featuring live music, dancing, and delicious dinner. Musical entertainment provided by the world-renowned neuropsychologist, Dr. Bill Stixrud. No RSVP is required.
