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

Rating: 5 stars  

My son has autism and epilepsy. Our synagogue didn't know how to help him, but MATAN did. They made it possible for him to learn and thrive, and at the age of 13 we celebrated his bar mitzvah. Even though he has now graduated out of Matan's program, I continue to be actively involved with them, helping them to fulfill their mission: Every Jewish child, regardless of intellectual or physical disability, deserves a Jewish education.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing the joy and pride that families experience when a disabled child is able to celebrate his or her bar/bat mitzvah.

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

Meeting other families in situations similar to my own, and realizing that I am not alone.

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


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

Provide programming on a national scale, and serve as a clearinghouse for information on Jewish special education services.
