Support CAHAL

Communities Acting to heighten awareness and learning

CAHAL is a yeshiva-based program of smaller classes for children with learning differences from kindergarten through middle school. CAHAL was organized by local rabbis, principals, and community leaders who were concerned with the challenges presented by children who were not succeeding in the mainstream yeshiva class, even with resource room or other academic support.

For over 30 years, CAHAL has supported hundreds of children who have been able to attend the same yeshivas as their siblings and friends, learning the mainstream curriculum, in a professionally staffed, highly individualized program.
