EMBRACING A JEWISH EDUCATION
Sha’arim was founded in 1999, when parents and educators saw the need for children with special needs and different learning styles to access and become involved in Jewish education and with their community.
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 understand this and provides individualized support to individuals with special learning needs.
For students who need to learn differently, Sha’arim makes all the difference in the world.
