Review for MATAN, Inc., White Plains, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

For many years I served on the Board of Education of the Hebrew school in a large synagogue in upstate New York. The school was well-staffed, had good teacher-student ratios and an experienced principal, all doing their best to serve the students and the community. We also had children with learning disabilities who needed people trained to provide them with the education they deserved and that their parents wished for. It was difficult to find the teachers, programs and resources they required. Sometimes we were successful but what a gift it would have been if Matan had been there to guide us and teach us so that a healthy and rewarding Hebrew education could have been accessible to all the children. We wish Matan continued success in its very important mission.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  General Member of the Public & I have made annual donations to Matan, and often donate to Matan in order to honor someone or someone's memory. I learn a great deal from Matan's informative newsletters and appreciate being informed about Jewish special education.
