An overflow crowd of supportive women came together for a singular cause: Paint Nite for CAHAL, last Sunday at TAG.
Participants were given the opportunity to create their own masterpieces in acrylic paint on canvas. Instructor Naomi Singer presented the picture and gave the talented amateurs direction. The ladies did the rest on their own. It was a relaxing evening for old and new friends channeling their creative abilities and having the ultimate ladies’ night out.
CAHAL, the only local yeshiva-based and sponsored community program for children with learning challenges, now in its 24th year, provided the underlying message.
Elisheva Trachtenberg told the audience about her experiences as a CAHAL parent, and the huge difference its dedicated administration and teachers made in her child’s life, and how she has progressed and integrated as a CAHAL student at Bais Yaakov Ateres Miriam, including attending the mainstream math class along with daily non-academic mainstream activities.
The event was coordinated by Shira Cohen, CAHAL’s special events coordinator and administrative liaison, and thanks were extended to the event committee, which included Adi Aryeh, Elisheva Biegeleisen, Ricki Genuth, Shir Hochman, Rivky Kaplan, Adina Klein, Rochel Lapidus, Darah Mandelbaum, Estie Mendlowitz, Shaindy Pollack, Devorah Salzman, Bracha Schoenblum, Mimi Schreiber, Shani Seif, Deena Soroka, Sharona Stone, Rivky Teitelbaum, Elisheva Trachtenberg, Deena Weinstein and Aliza Wielgus. Dr. Suri Weinreb, CAHAL’s staff psychologist, was the evening’s emcee.
