The Center for the Advancement of Jewish Education (CAJE) is very sorry to announce the loss of Alexander (Sandy) Andron, a past CAJE executive staff member who oversaw Teen Programming, including the Judaica High School, and was a key staff member of the Leo Martin March of the Living.
The family is requesting that contributions in Sandy’s memory be made to: Miami’s Leo Martin March of the Living at: caje-miami.org/donate/lmmol
We wish the Andron’s, Feldman’s and Eiglarsh’s our heartfelt condolences. He was a very special person and will be sorely missed. May his memory be for a blessing.
Alexander (Sandy) Andron
Sandy was born in New York. He was a dedicated and loving husband to Goldie (z”l), his wife of 56 years. He is survived by his three younger brothers Bob, Richard, and Michael and also his children Jonathan (& Jill) Andron, Vicki (& Gary) Feldman, and Beth (& Mark) Eiglarsh; and his 9 grandchildren.
A well respected educator & scholar, he will be greatly missed by the South Florida and Atlanta Jewish communities where he worked tirelessly for most of his career in religious education. He was the first graduate of the Hebrew Academy on Miami Beach, which his father founded.
He went on to earn a Bachelor's degree at the University of Miami, a Master’s degree in Gifted Education at Clemson University, and a Doctorate of Education at Nova University. While developing curriculum for high-school-aged students, he became a world renowned expert on the topic of religious cults and received the Leo J. Ryan awarded for his work in the anti-cult movement.
Perhaps his crowning achievement was developing the educational curriculum that was used to prepare thousands of teens for their March of the Living experience in Poland and Israel, a program that continues and thrives to this day.
