Sinai Schools will hold its annual benefit dinner on Sunday, February 26, at the Marriott Glenpointe Hotel in Teaneck. This year’s honorees are Ilana and Adam Chill of New Rochelle, N.Y.; Malca and Rabbi Chaim Jachter of Teaneck; Esther and Moshe Muschel of Englewood, and Orit and Moshe Zharnest of Fair Lawn. The Chills and Jachters are parents of Sinai students.
Sinai is known for its emotionally engaging documentaries, which premiere at the dinner each year. This year’s short film, “Jacob’s Footprints,” tells the story of Jacob Adler, a young man with cerebral palsy who has been at Sinai since first grade. Jacob is fondly known as the “Mayor of Teaneck” for his enthusiastic, friendly nature and unwavering positivity; he is an inspiration to everyone who knows him.
This year’s film and dinner program promise to be inspiring, moving, and widely attended, with broad community support.
Over the past 35 years, Sinai has served children with complex special needs from across the region. Each of Sinai’s schools is integrated within a partner Jewish day elementary or high school, creating a fully inclusive school community.
To meet each student’s specific academic, social, and emotional needs, Sinai creates a completely individualized program for each child. The professional-to-student ratio is greater than 1:2, and the students receive a wide variety of cutting-edge therapies to meet their individual needs. Without significant financial aid, Sinai’s tuition — which reflects Sinai’s own costs — is beyond the reach of the vast majority of families.
