Sha'arim is excited to be celebrating 12 years of making the Twin Cities Jewish community a world that is a warm and welcoming place for Jewish children and young adults with special needs. At Sha'arim, we are committed to education designed with your child in mind.
As the only service of its kind in Minnesota, Sha'arim is committed to providing an opportunity for every Jewish child with special needs to:
1. Receive a Jewish education;
2. Experience inclusion as a vital and active participant in the classroom;
3. Socialize and be part of his/her peer group; and
4. Participate in a rich and meaningful life within the Jewish community.
