Sunday Program

student with two volunteersThe Sunday Program offers a thematic Jewish education curriculum to students ages 4-18 who benefit from highly structured programming, individualized attention and small class sizes. Special education teachers utilize visual supports and differentiated instruction to present a multisensory curriculum that includes Jewish holidays, Torah stories, and Hebrew, as well as Jewish culture and traditions. Creative arts and music are included each week. All students receive one-to-one support from teen aides who receive ongoing training in working with children with special needs.

Classes take place on Sundays from 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM and from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM, depending on class assignment. All classes take place in Newton.
