The Friendship Circle Hebrew School is a one-of-a-kind program that provides children with special needs an opportunity to participate in a quality Judaic program that teaches the Jewish way of life in a mutually benefiting environment, recognizing and respecting the needs of a modified curriculum. Before the Friendship Circle Hebrew School, Jewish families found there were no opportunities for their children with special needs to attend a Hebrew school. Here at the Friendship Circle Hebrew School, we bring to our children the richness of their Jewish heritage and foster pride and self-assurance in their identity as valued members of the Jewish community.

Our program offers your family: Small group instruction by qualified special education teachers while your child is being assisted by his/her Friendship Circle teenage volunteer. This approach offers one-to-one attention for your child. A well-rounded environment offering an individualized, hands-on curriculum while bringing into the Hebrew program creativity and inclusion technologies best suited for your child.

This program is a partnership between The Sholem Epelbaum Chabad Hebrew School, Ruderman Family Foundation, in memory of Moshe Sholom Ben Yudel Dovid – Dr. Morry Fox, and Friendship Circle. For more information on how to register your child in our program, please contact Nechama Harlig, Executive Director at 305.234.5654 x11,, or register at

Sunday mornings 9:30 am—11:30 am $635 for program year (registration and curriculum included - payment plan available) 2012-2013 Registration is open now. Limited space available.

Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson O.B.M., urged back in the 1970’s that children with special needs be seen not as children with problems, but as able to contribute to society in their own unique ways. The Rebbe said, “They have a very strong connection to Jewish rituals, Jewish teachings and traditions, even more than mainstream children, and that being exposed to Yiddishkeit is exciting for them.” Offering an opportunity to provide Hebrew school to children with special needs will help them understand and participate more in the synagogue and at home during prayers and holidays.
