Temple Beth-El has been at the forefront of disability inclusion for many years. Our welcoming and inclusive philosophy makes attaining a Jewish education a reality for every child. At Temple Beth-El we believe all children have unique gifts to share, and our goal is to provide an appropriate and rewarding Jewish education for each one.

We support our students by educating the religious school staff to the needs of children with learning challenges, as well as by providing curriculum modifications, one-to-one teenage madrichim (student teaching assistants), and/or other arrangements where appropriate. Our warm and caring teachers work with each family to create a successful experience for every child.

The Religious School offers a variety of classroom options for children with unique learning needs. If you think your child would benefit from one of our alternative classes, please contact Director of Education, Lisa Friedman.
