I have seen the people at Matan work tirelessly to serve kids with special learning needs. They are passionate about their work and they reach families who feel disenfranchised from the Jewish community.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their unwavering tenacity and love for the Jewish people.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the world for the people who need it.

had the opportunity to visit a Matan class for young children, one for adolescents and a holiday celebration for families. Without Matan these children would not have the opportunity to access religious education. Young children are cute, but the older children are not so “cute” and can be difficult to manage and miss out on many opportunities to interact and socialize with others their age.. Thanks to Matan they get the exposure to religious education and at the same time, an opportunity to socialize in an environment where they don’t have to feel “different.” The holiday celebration was a joyous occasion meticulously planned and organized by the Matan staff. Parents and children were having a wonderful time. Its not often that funders get to have the opportunity to see their money at work and feel a sense of pride and that they are making a difference in a really worthwhile way. I wish more people could become aware of the needs Matan is meeting and its success doing so.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

This was a way to see my dollars making a difference.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Dedicated and well prepared.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Help a lot more children to be part of the Jewish community.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year
