Special Needs

Opening the door to Jewish education is the core of what we do. Congregation Beth El welcomes all types of learners in our educational programs. We are happy to meet with parents to discuss the special needs of your child in order to ensure a Jewish education for all. Please contact Debra Sagan Massey, our Director of Education at 510-848-2122 ext. 213 or debra@bethelberkeley.org if you have any questions or concerns.

She’arim: A Gateway to the Jewish Community

Congregation Beth El is the recipient of a micro-grant from the Jewish Community Federation of the Greater East Bay. This grant is enabling us to offer:

  • A class for teens with special needs, which will meet during Midrasha- Sunday mornings from 10:30-11:30 am.
  • A Jewish concert which is aimed to engage students of differing abilities
  • A T’fillah (Jewish worship) that is welcoming and inviting to people of all abilities.
