A clearer sound for hearing aid users

We are pleased to announce that members and guests who wear hearing aids and cochlear implants will soon be able to better hear services and programs in numerous spaces throughout our synagogue through a hearing loop system which transmits an audio signal directly into a hearing aid and/or cochlear implant. All a user needs to do is switch his or her hearing aid to the "T", telephone, or hearing loop program. Learn more!

Thank you to Lois Klein, Fay & Edward Blumenthal and Barbara & Bernard Kotton for their generous support of this impactful project.
