Sasone (the Hebrew word for joy) is the name of our Jewish community’s program that works to ensure children with special needs and their families have support in accessing a Jewish education. Sasone, a program of Jewish Federation of Greater Kansas City, has been a part of the Kansas City Jewish community for over 25 years.


The goals of Sasone are to:

  • Provide Jewish preschools, religious schools, day schools, camps and other programs around the Greater KC area with funding and resources to help support students with identified and unidentified special needs.
  • Provide training and resources to Jewish community leaders, teachers, administrators, and peers to support inclusive learning environments where all students can grow, learn and thrive.
  • Consult with schools, administrators and teachers to provide individualized program planning.

For support or resources, please reach out to Lindsey Lipsky, Sasone Director.
