Help For Special-Needs Families
Mon, 07/05/2010 - 20:00

I read your article, “Special-Needs Families Fighting Jewish Day Schools” (June 11), with considerable sadness. Beside the need to combat prejudice in this area, I believe that our yeshivas and day schools, which are now struggling financially, could and would provide more special-needs services given financial incentives and support. 

I therefore urge the federations and our philanthropists to make this cause a major funding priority. There is no greater mitzvah than saving the soul of Jewish child.
