Whole Community Inclusion is offering a two-day training that will provide information about understanding different types of learning challenges and resources to create accommodations and modifications for children of all abilities as they reach this Bar/Bat Mitzva. Experienced educators will share real life examples of successful adaptations for trope, prayer learning and working on Divrei Torah. Participants will also have an opportunity to problem-solve one-on-one with instructors about specific students, both during and after the training. The training will take place August 3rd and 4th, 2015, 9am–4pm at Jewish Learning Venture, Melrose Park, PA.

We are delighted to partner with Rabbi Michelle Greenfield, an experienced educator who has prepared hundreds of students of all abilities for becoming B’nai Mitzvah and am grateful for the support and consultation of Rabbi Margot Stein, who also has extensive experience preparing students with special needs for becoming B’nai Mitzvah.
