Our community is blessed with so many wonderful institutions who provide real, authentic chinuch to our most prized possession, our children.
For the families in our community who are raising children with special needs, the unfortunate reality is that options are extremely limited.
These children require much more attention than the average student, and curated material and therapeutic services to help them achieve their full potential.
The amount of schools that are equipped with the necessary resources for such a child are limited, let alone a Jewish school. And those select few that are, are forced to charge an extremely high admission in order to properly cater to these students.
As such, parents are forced to make the difficult choice between sending their precious child to the public school system, or figure out a way to raise the exorbitant amount of money they need to send their child to a Jewish school.
Over the past 18+ years, Soul II Soul has set out to make the aforementioned choice just a little bit easier on the parents, by raising funds to be distributed among the many families in our community who apply their special children for scholarship assistance.
By partnering with Soul II Soul, we as a community have the opportunity to really make a difference in the life of a child with special needs, as well as their families.
We are talking about a pure Jewish soul, at risk of being lost in the public school system.
It is our job as a community to make sure each and every one of our children are afforded the Jewish education they need and deserve.
