Joining Aleph Bet means becoming part of a community that shares a commitment to educating children through instruction, experience, and example.  Parents come together for Shabbat  dinners and to celebrate milestone events through the grades. They accompany field trips to the theater and to wetlands.  They stuff envelopes together, serve hot lunches, and plan social events.  They carpool and coordinate play dates.  They share meals and childcare in times of need, and they play together in times of contentment. Through Aleph Bet, parents and students find the nurturing ties of a caring community and the loving embrace of an extended family.
