Darkaynu for youth reaches out to Jewish students
with moderate to severe disabilities or any other
diagnosed challenges who are unable to attend
mainstream Jewish educational programming alongside
typical peers after all possible interventions have
been attempted. The goal of the program is to provide
a rich and meaningful Jewish education for each
student according to his or her own way of learning.
Hence, DARKAYNU – Our Way.

DARKAYNU FOR YOUNG ADULTS
Darkaynu for young adults explores new ways to
enhance the lives of Jewish young adults with special
needs in the Twin Cities. In partnership with the
Inclusion Department of the Sabes JCC, we offer
evening classes during the school year where participants
have many opportunities to take part in a wide
variety of Jewish activities, while promoting Jewish
pride through a positive connection to their community.

Darkaynu Café is a monthly program specifically
geared toward Jewish young adults with special
needs. Young adults come together and socialize at
the Sabes JCC, listen and sing along to live Jewish
music from tefillah, popular Hebrew songs, and Jewish
camp songs. Participants gain educationally and stay
connected to one another and to their Jewish
heritage through song and social interaction.
