Celebrating Two Decades Of Special Education At YESS!

Eller-081712-Main

Remaining true to the ideals of its founding parents, YESS! strives to ensure that all Jewish children, even those who have learning disabilities and other difficulties, receive the Torah education that is their right.

“All of Hakadosh Baruch Hu’s children are entitled to an education and to receive true Torah chinuch,” said Rabbi Lustig. “Doesn’t every Jewish kid want to be an active participant at the Shabbos table? Without a school like YESS!, these kids would have been forced to attend public schools to get the services they require. Would they still be shomrei Torah u’mitzvos? Our students gain tremendously from our program, not just academically but socially and emotionally as well and they will go on to raise future generations of Klal Yisroel.”

Twenty years after its tenuous beginnings, Mrs. Goldstein sees YESS! as a dream come true.

“All I was looking for when we started YESS! was a rich and full Jewish educational experience, a kindergarten for my son where Uncle Moishy would be playing in the background. When we founded the school, it was such a miracle to us that it felt like the parting of the Red Sea, but we see more and more miracles happening every year. Over the years, YCQ has opened their hearts and their school to us, and hundreds of children have gone through the program and not only flourished but stayed strong in their commitment to their Jewish heritage, something that might not have happened if not for YESS!.”
