Every Jewish Child Deserves a Jewish Education and the Opportunity to be of Service

Nes Gadol & The Blessing Exchange

Nes Gadol
(A Great Miracle)

A Jewish Education Program for children and teens of ALL abilities led by Rabbi Jackie Redner.

Enter into a sacred space of community where every class celebrates the unique gifts of each child. Multi-sensory, dynamic, and experiential in its approach, Nes Gadol deepens Jewish identity, nurtures spiritual growth, builds confidence and character, and cultivates a love of Jewish learning and life-long friendships.

Our B'nei Mitzvah Sharing Program offers neuro-typical students and students with special needs the life-changing opportunity to partner together in the journey of becoming B'nei Mitzvah - learning the values of wonder and appreciation of difference - while sharing the gifts of inclusion within the larger community as teachers and advocates for social change.

Private tutoring also available.

Classes are held on Sundays and Tuesdays at Vista Del Mar 3200 Motor Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90034

The Blessing Exchange

A Service Program for Jewish Young Adults with Autism and Other Special Needs in cooperation with Los Angeles Senior Living Communities

The Blessing Exchange is a new pilot program designed to bring young adults with autism and other special needs together with seniors living in Senior Living Communities to build relationships of meaning and service culminating in monthly Jewish Holiday and Shabbat Programming.

At its core, The Blessing Exchange is about living life with meaning and holiness. It is about menschlichkeit. It is about young adults with special needs and elderly individuals both having agency to do something meaningful in the service of others – to make a difference.

Year One focuses on learning and preparation for both communities.

In year two, monthly holiday and or Shabbat programming will begin.

Classes held on Thursdays via Zoom.
