How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

Since merging two founding organizations in July 2006, Gateways has grown to serve hundreds of children with a range of learning styles and special needs in dozens of schools and programs. Through our public awareness efforts, the Boston Jewish community has taken to heart the imperative that every child be given the opportunity for Jewish learning. Gateways' success has garnered support from the Ruderman Foundation, the Jim Joseph Foundation, the Slingshot Fund, and many individuals and organizations, for its commitment to ensure that every child can participate with his or her family in Jewish life.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"This is a pivotal time in Gateways’ history. We strive to provide a Jewish education to all students, regardless of their ability or disability. All students: that’s a powerful and important paradigm. Wherever the family lives, whatever their background, however they worship, whatever their learning challenge or disability, Gateways will endeavor to create a place at the table for these children. Our parents know we will do what we can to help their children gain access to a Jewish education. We see this as a moral imperative and the raison d’etre for Gateways.

Thank you for your interest in our dynamic and compelling mission as we enable all Jewish children to take their rightful place among us.

Arlene Remz"
