Shabbat Salon: Lynne Koral

Friday, November 10, 2023 26 Cheshvan 5784

6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Join us for the second Shabbat Salon of the year! Our November presenter will be TBH member Lynne Koral. She will be presenting on Disability and Judaism.

What can we do to foster more disabled people in Jewish congregations? Lynne Koral, a member of TBH, will share her own journey as a blind Jewish person and her path to connecting with suynagogues from childhood to adulthood, including her adult bat mitzvah. She will also share about her work educating school children about disability, and her academic work on disability statistics and how various legal cases have set the stage for the marginalization of disabled people.

Dr. Lynne Koral has been a lifelong learner, advocate, mother and had many varied experiences from living in six states. She has two master’s degrees and one doctorate. She has been in many volunteer leadership positions as President and Treasurer in Alaska, and Braille Revival League and Blind Information Technology Specialists. She is now in the Olympia chapter as Secretary and also serves and was just appointed to the Multicultural Affairs Committee and has been on the Transportation Committee for American Council of the Blind. Much of her activity was working with that organization. She serves on the Accessibility Community Advisory Committee in Thurston County, and was just appointed to the Patron Council of the JBI (used to be Jewish Braille Institute).


Our Shabbat Salons this year will not include a full service in the Sanctuary. Rather, we will join in-person in community to celebrate Shabbat in the social hall with several prayers before we enjoy a catered vegetarian dinner by Nineveh.  The presentation begins between 7:45 and 8:00 pm, and the event typically concludes at 9:00 pm. Each menu is specially created just for TBH!
