Organization Description: 

First established in 2004 under the fiscal sponsorship of Breeyah and then Vista Del Mar, The Miracle Project began operating independently in 2015. It provides individuals with autism and other disabilities with the tools to build communication, social skills, Jewish identity, community, and self-esteem through theatre, film and expressive arts programs. Although it is not an exclusively Jewish organization, over 80% of its participants are Jewish.

Grant Purpose: 

Miracle Masters aims to address the social isolation and unemployment experienced by adults with special needs, by scaling up its performing arts, Judaica education, and vocational services for Jewish adults with disabilities, as well as training Jewish clergy on inclusion of people with special needs.
