Gateways is a Boston-area organization that provides special education services, expertise and support to enable students with diverse learning needs to succeed in Jewish education settings and participate in Jewish life.

Towards this goal, we have created for the community a range of High Holiday resources: tools for educators and parents of young children and students with special needs.

We’ve created blessings, social stories like “How To Behave In Temple,” “Things I Can Do During A Long Service,” “What to Think and Do If the Shofar Sounds Too Loud;” social skills worksheets (How to Accept an Apology, How To Apologize) and activities and crafts.


Rachel Fadlon is Gateways’ director of Marketing and Communications.
