SINAI Schools to Hold Annual Benefit Dinner

SINAI partners with inclusive Jewish day schools and high schools throughout Northern New Jersey to provide both secular and Judaic special education to children with a wide range of disabilities. SINAI creates a completely individualized program for each child based on his or her social, emotional, and academic needs, translating into a nearly 1:2 staff-to-student ratio and several different in-house therapies, with specialists on staff at each school. The costs SINAI takes on each time they accept a new student are extraordinarily high. Without significant financial aid, SINAI’s tuition—which is reflective of SINAI’s own costs—is beyond the reach of the vast majority of families.

This year’s honorees at the Annual Benefit Dinner on Sunday Evening, February 8, 2015 at 4:45 p.m. at the Marriott Glenpointe Hotel, 100 Frank W. Burr Boulevard, Teaneck, New Jersey, are Ruvan and Shelley Cohen of Manhattan; Dr. Elie and Nancy Elmann of Englewood; Rabbi Brian and Laurie Gopin of Bergenfield; Rabbi Shimshon and Ashley Jacob, formerly of Livingston, now living in Jerusalem; and Nathan and Judy Rephan of Fair Lawn. SINAI Schools will also present its Community Partnership Award to Holy Name Medical Center, with CEO and President Michael Maron accepting on behalf of the hospital.

The dinner will feature a new, inspirational video called “Sweet Boy,” which tells the moving story of a young child’s transformation at SINAI Schools. Faigy and Ari Leiter tell the story of their son Binyamin, whose difficulty with communication had turned him into a frustrated, angry child. Yet after just a short time at SINAI, in an environment where people finally understood him, their Sweet Boy re-emerged, transforming not only him, but their entire family life.
