Building Jewish Education


Project EnAble

Oct 05, 2016

BJE is the proud recipient of a four-year Cutting Edge Grant from the Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles to establish Project EnAble, a centralized resource for children with special needs.

The goal of Project EnAble is to offer reduced-cost services for students with mild to moderate learning needs in Jewish elementary schools, coordination - on a flexible basis - of access to these services, and integrated professional development workshops within the schools to support the clinical and educational work being done.

My family was always involved in different ways in the Jewish community. My grandfather – my saba – is a BJE board member and past president, and always talked about BJE and other Jewish organizations when I was growing up. I didn’t know what it meant then, but I knew my family was involved. I joined USY in high school and especially liked the social action programs.
