SINAI operates schools and adult programs for individuals with a wide range of learning and developmental disabilities as well as other special needs. We focus on maximizing each student’s academic, emotional, and social potential, while developing a strong knowledge and love of his or her traditional Jewish heritage. We teach our students skills that promote success in mainstream academic, social and vocational settings, and empower them to become productive and confident members of the community.Read More
When I first heard that SINAI would be coming to our school, I recognized that it would be a wonderful way for students, faculty, and the RYNJ community to learn how to include people with special needs in every aspect of our lives. However, for me as an educator there has been an unforeseen bonus: I get to be inspired as I witness, daily, a group of professionals totally committed to their craft and doing their very best to help their charges. I don't get to see this in the SINAI classrooms as I am not there, but it is beyond the classroom where I am so impressed, whether helping the students socialize during lunchtime, or teaching them to play ball at recess, or showing them how to properly walk down the stairs. Wow!
