CAA Sunday School

Our current Sunday School program meets once a month, during the school year and takes a break over the summer.  We are indebted to two people for starting our current program; Ruth Elmakiss and Fran Birmingham.  At this time, Ruth and other parents work together, along with Rabbi Learner, to provide our children with enriched learning through fun activities.  This year, we have a number of parents and CAA friends who are volunteering to help with activities and refreshments.  Our children have so much fun while they learn about their Jewish heritage.  One of the best parts of our Sunday School is that the parents of the children come to help!  When not needed with the children, our parents enjoy the opportunity for social interaction.  This is such an enjoyable activity that the attendees and their parents tend to stay after class to continue their socializing!!  Check out below for some pictures of our kids and parents, in either thumbnail format or slideshow format!!  Sunday School pictures are down right now and will be back up soon!
