SINAI Schools will hold its annual Benefit Dinner on Sunday, February 26, at the Marriott Glenpointe Hotel in Teaneck, NJ.
Over the past 35 years, SINAI has served children with complex special needs from across the region. Each of SINAI’s schools is integrated within a partner Jewish day school or high school, creating a fully inclusive school community. In order to meet each student’s specific academic, social, and emotional needs, SINAI creates a completely individualized program for each child. SINAI’s professional-to-student ratio is greater than 1:2, and the students receive a wide variety of cutting-edge therapies to meet their individual needs. The costs SINAI takes on each time they accept a new student are extraordinarily high. Without significant financial aid, SINAI’s tuition—which is reflective of SINAI’s own costs—is beyond the reach of the vast majority of families.
SINAI is known for their moving feature documentaries, which premiere at the dinner each year. This year’s short film, “Jacob’s Footprints,” tells the story of Jacob Adler, a young man with cerebral palsy who has been at SINAI since first grade. Jacob is well known for his enthusiastic, friendly nature and unwavering positivity; he is an inspiration to everyone who knows him. Once again, this year’s film and the dinner program promise to be inspiring, emotional, and widely attended, with broad community support.
This year’s dinner honorees are Ilana and Adam Chill of New Rochelle; Malca and Rabbi Chaim Jachter of Teaneck; Esther and Moshe Muschel of Englewood; and Orit and Moshe Zharnest of Fair Lawn. The Chills and Jachters are both parents of SINAI students.
