To sustain and enhance Jewish Life at Home and Around the World.


Sasone is a program funded by JFEDKC as part of our focus on Youth and Family Services. Sasone--Kansas City's Jewish community response to children with special needs--provides support for children identified with developmental, physical, mental, or behavioral issues.

The program provides consultants and paraprofessionals to area pre-schools, congregational schools, and the Hyman Brand Hebrew Academy to ensure that students with special needs are integrated into our schools and informal educational programs such as summer camp.

Sasone's purpose is accomplished by helping teachers and camp counselors to develop strategies that allow children with special needs to maximize their potential for Jewish learning.
