Ma’ayan, Temple Emanu-El’s Religious School program for children with special needs, ensures that a Jewish education is accessible to every child. Ma’ayan is open to all members of the Jewish community, regardless of synagogue affiliation or denomination. Our goal is to provide all children the opportunity to be called to the Torah as a Bar/Bat Mitzvah. Ma’ayan offers a variety of family education programs for children with special needs. These events are run in conjunction with the JCC of Central NJ and are held six times per year.
This program is made possible in part by a grant from the Jewish Federation of Central New Jersey and by the Holly E. Wetscher Ma’ayan Education Fund.
