Matan’s self-contained classes serve children who benefit from smaller class sizes and shorter instruction time, and accommodate children with significant learning disabilities, developmental disorders (such as Autism) and other issues that affect learning and peer interaction. Children engage in hands-on, multi-sensory Jewish education that builds on social skills enhancement and enables them to feel proud of their Jewish identity. Curriculum may include bible stories, Jewish values, Jewish holidays, Shabbat and Hebrew.
