Inclusion B’ Kavod

Kindness, Acceptance, Visibility, Opportunity and Dignity

Ohev Shalom celebrates the uniqueness of each individual and family and welcomes diversity within our sacred community.

A message from our Inclusion B’Kavod (with respect) Team:

Please let us know if you or a family member’s needs have changed and how we can best accommodate you.  We are also a food allergy aware facility.  Please share your dietary allergies with us so we can provide you with reasonable and safe food alternatives while at Ohev Shalom.   Our email is inclusionbkavod@ohev.org or call the office at 215-322-9595.
