The Macks Center for Jewish Education is committed to enhancing the connection to life and learning of individuals with special needs, so that they can more fully participate in the Jewish community. Through CJE’s work, these individuals develop their Jewish educational, spiritual, cultural, social and religious lives. CJE works with local school systems, Federal programs and other area non-profit organizations to help parents of students with special needs find the resources and connections they need to assist their children.
The JADE Interpreter Grant provides $50 per eligible event towards the cost of an interpreter. More info
