Disability & Inclusion

  • Sat, Feb 17
  • 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM EST
  • Temple Emanu-El-Beth Sholom


As part of JDAAIM: Jewish Disability Awareness, Acceptance & Inclusion Month, join us for an exciting evening at Temple Emanu-El-Beth Sholom on February 17, 2024, at 7:00 PM, featuring Steven Atme—an accomplished musician, humanitarian, creative arts teacher, and speaker. We will be showing Steven's documentary, Precious Memories: A Decade in the Making, followed by a live concert!

Diagnosed with autism at age four, Steven's remarkable journey through music and advocacy has garnered him accolades, including the Simon Chang Difference Maker Award (Fall 2021/Winter '22) and a nomination for the Jim & Ginette Munson Autism Leadership Award (2023).

Steven's deep connection to music emerged early, leading to self-taught proficiency and, later, a scholarship for piano lessons at McGill University's Conservatory of Music. His story is one of resilience, creativity, and a commitment to encouraging others, with or without disabilities, to embrace their unique identities and pursue their dreams.

Temple’s building is fully accessible. If you have any questions about our JDAAIM programming or our accessibility, please contact inclusion@templemontreal.ca.
