Temple Beth-El is proud to help children with special learning needs benefit from a successful Jewish educational experience.


We offer alternative classroom options for those students who need a more individualized approach to learning. We support our students by educating the Religious School faculty to the needs of children with special needs. In addition, curriculum modifications, providing one-to-one teenage teaching assistants, and other arrangements are made where needed. We work with each family to create a successful educational experience for each and every child.


Education Co-Director Lisa Friedman has been nationally recognized by the Reform Movement and other organizations for her work in the area of special needs, inclusion, and disability awareness.
