Our Individualized Learning Program

Every child has strengths and challenges when it comes to learning. At Temple Avodat Shalom Religious School, we are committed to providing the best Jewish educational experience possible for all children, including those with additional learning needs. Through extra support staff in classrooms, one-on-one time as needed, and training for all of our teachers in differentiated instruction, we aim to ensure that every student gets the support they need to receive a strong, well-rounded Jewish education.

Community is a key component of Jewish life and learning, and as such, IL students are fully integrated into grade-level classes and programming. Any additional support comes to them, rather than the other way around. All IL staff members are full time educators in special education contexts with years of experience working at both synagogues and public schools. Our Madrichim, or teen assistants, are also present to provide students with one on one support on an ongoing basis.

If you have questions about the IL Program or need to submit your child's IEP or 504, please contact Mikah Atkind, Educational Director, at

The Individualized Learning Program is supported by a grant from Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey and is open to Members and Nonmembers alike.
