GROSSE POINTE JEWISH COUNCIL SUNDAY SCHOOL
The AJE has entered into an exciting new partnership with the Grosse
Pointe Jewish Council Sunday School.
Under the directorship of Ms. Judy Silberg Loebl, who has formulated
a six-year curriculum for the program, the school serves 17 students
who are divided into two levels. Each level meets on Sundays for an
hour and a half, under the guidance of teacher, Ms. Wendy Newman.
Since the school began, there has been a Shabbat program, a Purim
play, a special Tu B'Shevat program, a model seder, and a Lag B'Omer
picnic. "So far, we've been very successful, and we're quite pleased with
our new partnership," says Ms. Judy Silberg Loebl.
