The Katz Hillel Day School of Boca Raton established the ETGAR program to provide for the needs of students with learning challenges. The Hebrew word etgar is literally translated as challenge. In the modern Israeli idiom, the word represents the concept of fulfilling one’s potential through the achievement of goals that are not always easily attainable. Achievement of these goals, on either a personal or a national level, defines our being. Such achievement expresses our true character and, most importantly, demonstrates that we are able to attain any important goal that we set in life. An etgar is something we choose to do because we believe in its importance, because we are passionate about bringing it to fruition. As a school community, our etgar is to teach as wide a spectrum of Jewish children as possible. The ETGAR program helps us meet this goal. The program provides intensive intervention and special services for students with significant learning disabilities. Educational programs are tailored to the individual learner.
