After 28 years of providing outstanding education to hundreds of Jewish children in our community yeshivas, CAHAL is opening the 2020-2021 school year with 12 classes and nearly 120 students

The eleven yeshivas that participate in the program refer families to CAHAL for their children who need smaller classes and more individualized attention to build skills and self-confidence, with the goal of having the children return to mainstream classes. The children attend the same school as their siblings and friends and are integrated for all daily activities including lunch, recess, specials, assemblies, trips, and more. The CAHAL classes, many of which are filled to a capacity of 12 children, with a 4-to-1 student-to-teacher ratio, are taught by dedicated and experienced rebbeim and state certified teachers, who address the learning styles and individual needs of each student.

Program Director Naomi Nadata, Educational Coordinator Alice Feltheimer, School Psychologist Dr. Suri Weinreb, Hebrew Curriculum Coordinator Rabbi Moishe Waxman, and Kriah Specialist Shaindy Haglili work through the summer preparing the materials and research-based programs needed for CAHAL’s teachers to be able to ensure success for all their students. And it shows. Demand for our specialized education program, that was founded by Dr. Norman Blumenthal, has never been higher. CAHAL continues to do what the menahalim and principals requested 29 years ago: educate the children with learning challenges in our community while keeping them in the local yeshivas. The experienced and caring CAHAL teachers make it all happen.

The eleven community yeshivas that participate in the CAHAL Program are: BBY, BYAM, HAFTR. HALB, HANC, MAY, Shulamith, TAG, YDT, YKLI, and YOSS.
