No child can learn if he can’t read.
But to many children, reading is a struggle and a chore. Some suffer from learning disabilities, such as dyslexia or other visual perception issues. Others have trouble with comprehension. All of them feel locked out of a world where reading is crucial to success. The problem extends way beyond the classroom. Statistics show that as many as 90% of at-risk youth in the Jewish community have trouble with reading or kriyah. Many of their problems could have been prevented, if their reading issues would have been discovered and treated.
Mrs. Rifka Schonfeld, founder and director of SOS, is a true master at helping children learn to read both Hebrew and English. She has developed techniques that unlock the secret of the letters, and let children succeed.

My personal experiences with her have also been beyond priceless. And that is why when people tell me “how can you shlep into Brooklyn” my response is “and if you needed surgery on your body to what extent would you travel and what would you pay. Here we are talking about a mind and soul.” Z.L.
