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 along-side 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 explores new ways to enhance 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 Holiday events is a monthly program geared towards adults with special needs. In partnership with J-HAP (Cornerstone Creek), adults come together to socialize and learn about Jewish lifecycle events through engaging and interactive activities.
Darkaynu Cafe is a monthly event bringing adults together to listen and learn through live Jewish music. Participants are welcome to sing along to songs from Tefillah, popular Hebrew music, and Jewish camp songs. Participants gain educationally and stay connected to one another and to their jewish heritage through song and social interaction.
