Jewish LearningWorks believes that all children deserve to be welcomed, included and embraced by the Jewish community regardless of individual needs or learning style.

After nearly a decade of supporting the community through the Include Initiative, Dr. David Neufeld has moved on to a new role. This summer we welcome Liora Brosbe, our new Senior Educator, who will continue to facilitate special needs support through our network of trained professionals throughout the Bay Area. To learn more about how to receive support we invite you to explore our new resource guide and to contact her:
