Judaism affirms that every Jew is required to study Torah, whether rich or poor, healthy or ailing, young or old, strong or weak. The Torah does not define a typical student of Torah; rather, it acknowledges that people have weaknesses and strengths and that their relationship with God should be independent. We believe that it is our duty as a congregation and a community to provide a Jewish education for all children, regardless of their abilities.
To this end, our religious school fully serves all of our students regardless of their special needs, with financial assistance provided by a grant from the Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona. Through inclusion, specialized tutoring, and individualized programs, each student is taught according to his/her ability. We have on staff an inclusion director, one-on-one aides, and specially trained tutors who work with classroom staff to assure success for all of our students. If you have a student with special needs, please contact the Director of Education, who will arrange for a conference with our Inclusion Director to determine your child’s need for an individualized program.
