For its 30th consecutive year, SINAI Schools will tell its story at the Marriott Glenpointe. Over 800 guests, many of whom have no children or personal connection to SINAI Schools, will come away knowing they have just experienced a beautiful evening of hope, hard work and educational achievement.
It’s these experiences that SINAI Schools’ children, families, educators and administrators experience on a day-to-day basis at several area day schools and yeshivot.
Some of the people in the audience will have attended every single SINAI Schools annual banquet. Many will be first-timers. They will get to meet a group of honorees who have given their time, resources and, some, their trust in SINAI’s education of their children or grandchildren with special needs.
Surely, all in attendance will be moved. If not by the stories of the honorees, then by the short documentary film that Sam Fishman, SINAI Schools’ managing director, so painstakingly put together. It is that film that often increases awareness of the SINAI mission in parents of special needs children who need help and answers.
We want to say thank you to this year’s honorees.
Plus, we make special mention here of the Schreiber family’s gift to SINAI to establish the Bayrish Schreiber Music Therapy Program. It is, according to Rabbi Dr. Yisrael Rothwachs, dean of SINAI Schools, an important “tool” to help the children learn social-skills strategies as well as ways to regulate their emotions.
We also want to thank the incredibly caring educators, board members, administration staff and volunteers for what you do every day.
SINAI Schools offers hope, achievement, improved self-esteem, excellence in academics and Torah learning. February 28 will be a magical night in Teaneck. As a result, there will be more achievements, big and small, in SINAI’s classrooms. When that happens, we all benefit and are grateful.
We welcome you to learn more about SINAI as part of our Special Needs Inclusion section and coverage.
