About the Synagogue and the School

  • CAA has about 120 member units and our school serves around 15 students on Tuesday afternoons.

  • We strive to explore traditional Jewish practices and rituals with a modern understanding and room for personal interpretation, belief and experience.
  • The community takes pride in sustaining the Hebrew School–we aim to create a positive atmosphere where students are excited to come to school, parents are engaged and congregants can see and hear from our students. 
  • Congregation Ahavas Achim welcomes the participation of interfaith families and people of all races, abilities, and sexual orientation or identity, and fosters the practice of Jewish traditions through acts of charity (tzedakah), loving kindness (chesed), and cultural and educational programming for all ages.
