Second Annual Day of Giving

On last year's Day of Giving we reached nearly 50% participation from our families, this year we plan to do even better with a goal of 60%. All donors who have already made a gift to the 2021-2022 Annual Campaign through the Day of Giving on Thursday, November 18, will be entered into raffles to win exciting and new prizes for you, your children and grandchildren, their teachers and more!

Day of Giving

Your philanthropic support makes a tangible difference. Over the years, donors helped to fund:
  • A science program which is now a national model for science education in Jewish day schools. 
  • A robotics curriculum, integrated into our science program, that students across all grade levels experience.
  • A reimagined Early Childhood wing to support learning inside and outside the classroom. Our community's tremendous generosity impacts our Early Childhood students every day.
  • A thriving Athletics program with close to 75% of all Middle School students participating in 16 athletic teams.
  • Record-setting tuition assistance for over 20% of our student body, more than ever before.
  • And so much more!
