Who Are We?

mjflogoAs the only service of its kind in Minnesota, under the auspices of the Minneapolis Jewish Federation, Sha’arim is committed to providing an opportunity for every Jewish child and young adult with special needs.

Addressing a Need

For children and young adults with special needs, it can be a struggle to receive a Jewish education and participate in daily communal life. Judaism teaches that it is our responsibility to teach a child according to the way that the child can best receive the learning.
Sha’arim understands this and provides individualized support to individuals with special learning needs.
