We believe it is a Jewish obligation to teach all our children, not just the typical learners. The gift of Jewish learning is a right of every child, regardless of ability or special need. Jewish education often presents additional challenges to children with special needs. Families coping with autism and other disabilities often feel left out of the synagogue, Hebrew school, and Jewish life, in general. By providing support to students, schools, and families, these challenges can be addressed one child at a time, to the benefit of the entire family and their faith community.
