Jewish Learning Program PTA

The PTA of Temple B'nai Abraham is committed to enhancing the Jewish Learning Program experience for the children at our synagogue. It is our goal to provide a positive and enriching Jewish traditional and cultural atmosphere for all children attending school and services at the Temple. We work closely with Director Melissa Weiner and her staff to make each year meaningful and enjoyable for the students.

In addition to the many efforts of our parent volunteers, the PTA provides many interesting program enhancements and holiday and lifecycle celebrations for our students. Holiday treats, class Sederim, game room equipment in the youth lounge, Purim Carnival and the purchase of books and videos for the Media Centers are all funded by the PTA.

We encourage all parents of Jewish Learning Program students to participate in our programs and to help with our activities. Hosting Shabbat Dinners and serving treats for the holidays and celebrations are just some of the things parents can do to help the PTA and provide enjoyment for our children throughout the year.
