In Israel, a new five month scholarship program being offered to young aspiring athletes – one of them could be you.
Neytz haChochma ESE, South Florida’s only non-affiliated Jewish Orthodox special education school, will hold its first fundraising dinner, “Navigate Into the Future” on Monday, November 21st. Guests will gather at 6 p.m. at the Miami Yacht Club for cocktails and dinner on the scenic outdoor dining area with beautiful Biscayne Bay just a few yards from their tables.
Neytz and its day school, Achim Academy Center for Education, will present four recognition awards to persons who have expanded outstanding personal efforts for children. The four awards will go to:
David Lawrence, children’s advocate extraordinaire. In 2002 he led the campaign for The Children’s Trust, established by voter referendum to improve the lives of children and families in Miami-Dade County. Neytz’s Youth Experiencing Success Out-of-School program and a popular summer camp are among the most successful programs funded by The Children’s Trust.
Harriet (Mrs. Alex) Paul, OBM, the late chairperson of the Board of Directors of Neytz haChochma ESE. For the last 20 years of her life she devoted herself to her chosen charities, the Neytz haChochma school being her prime special project, to which she gave both money and time.
Mr. Gedalia and Dr. Miriam Menaker, long-time supporters, will receive the “Helping Hand” Award for their many and varied contributions to the school and its students. Whenever there is a need, the Menakers can be counted on to help out.
Rabbi Moishe and Mrs. Layah Kievman will receive the “Educators of the Year” award for their outstanding love, devotion and creativity. The Kievmans run the Neytz haChochma Out-of-School program at Aventura, one of two Neytz sites funded through The Children’s Trust, as a part of its Hebrew school.
The evening’s cuisine will be under ORB Supervision, Lubavitch shechita, provided by Yaakov Mizrachi of Mizrachi Catering. The theme of the evening will be nautical from the setting to the gourmet food service. There will be a commemorative journal where well-wishers can place a congratulatory message or greeting.
Funds raised at the event will go to the school’s scholarship fund and general operating budgets. Neytz ha Chochma ESE is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, and all contributions are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
Neytz haChochma ESE was founded in 1999 to provide needed services for students experiencing difficulties in mainstream schools. Each child’s special gifts and talents are discovered in a warm and caring family environment. Individualized study plans are prepared for each student centered on evidence-based best practice models of excellence.
Classes are small, with a maximum of four students per teacher, and personalized instruction is provided as necessary. Neytz haChochma and its day school, Achim Academy Center for Education, are Florida certified for K-12, ages 5-12, and accredited for grades 6-12.

A recent study from the Tufts University School of Dental Medicine found that people with intellectual and other developmental disabilities are more prone to dental disease than the general population and that further research is required to identify effective interventions.
Between 1997 and 2008, the number of children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) increased almost fourfold, according to the National Health Interview survey. The 2007 National Survey of Children’s Health indicated that 1.1 percent of all children born in this country are on the autism spectrum.
We are born to learn, in whatever capacity we are able. We study the world with our senses, and try to understand it. Our special children have more of a challenge, but they are just as interested in knowing what is going on around them. We know that because we observe their keen interest in everything we do and say. We need to nurture this interest, to encourage it.
The American Inclusion Movement’s First Wave, which was focused solely on Inclusion in the workforce, has been almost entirely forgotten. It occurred in the 1930’s, decades before the 1960’s zeitgeist brought about broader and more famous changes in pro-disability policy, architectural barriers, and independent living.
Winter is here and with it comes a whole host of viruses that are somehow less prevalent in the warmer seasons. Poor winter, it’s saddled with the nickname of “cold and flu season.”
South Floridians held their breaths last week waiting the outcome of a frightening situation. Three children were abducted in front of a Miami grocery store. Two of the little ones were 6 years old. The other was 5.

Boynton Beach has the fastest growing Jewish population in America. Currently, several hundred traditional families call Boynton Beach home.
Yes, it is true. Man, alone in all of creation, is aware that he will die. The recognition of this certainty is quite sobering. Integrating a happy life with the knowledge that our existence is, in fact, a terminal condition, can be daunting.
The South Florida community will join celebrations taking place around the globe to mark Lag B’Omer. The local Lag B’Omer Unity Parade & Fair is scheduled on Sunday, April 28, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Gulfstream Park on the corner of US1 in Hallandale.
