A Keshet parent once shared, “My son goes to school all week to learn academics. On Sundays, he goes to Keshet to learn to be a good person.” Keshet Sunday School explores topics like kindness, respect, teamwork and community.
Lessons are designed by special education teachers to use visual supports and differentiated instruction. As part of a multisensory experience, each Sunday closes with all students coming together for joyful singing led by fantastic musicians.
Students come from many religious backgrounds and all Jewish denominations. Small classes and a variety of program options allow us to tailor lessons specifically to students’ interests and families’ religious observance.
Social Opportunities & Adult Recreation
A combination of community service and recreation for teens and adults looking for social interaction and community activities.
The Spirit Room is a unique Jewish education opportunity for students with ADHD or ASD. This is a great option for kids who will thrive in small groups with interactive lessons led by an occupational therapist and rabbi.
With so many great options for Keshet programs and inclusive, community-based Sunday School, it can be hard to choose. Contact Polly Cheeseman, Recreation Program Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 630.566.9391.

As the new year approaches and I reflect on Keshet’s mission, I know without a shadow of a doubt that we will get there—all communal spaces will be inclusive and welcoming to people with disabilities.
Almost fifty years after her first time going to overnight camp, Michelle is now experiencing what camps are like when they partner with Keshet. She’s finding more than just inclusion; it is true belonging.
