Special Needs in Jewish Education

Special Needs in Jewish Education (2000)

The Jewish community has become increasingly aware of the failure of its institutions to provide appropriate educational settings for children in day and religious schools with physical, psychological, cognitive and learning impairments. While we understand the real difficulties in adequately responding to these special needs because of budget and demographic constraints, we cannot afford to alienate these children and their families from our tradition.

Women’s League for Conservative Judaism calls upon leaders of the Jewish community to explore strategies to meet the special needs of our children.
