A doorway into our spiritual community for Dov...

Dear Friends,
​Last Sunday the Los Angeles Times published an article about the wonderful program Dov participates in that assists children with disabilities in preparing to become a Bar or Bat Mitzvah. Dov attends once a week with his Aunt Sarah. The students practice their prayers, study Judaism and discuss spiritual matters. Dov has enjoyed the class so much. Every person desires to be included in their own community and this program has provided a doorway into our spiritual community for Dov. You can read the article here: ​Click Here

​Happy Holidays, -Portia
