We were able to open because we are a committed school with wonderful staff & faculty, and an incredible community.
The journey has not been easy, nor is it over.
To get here, we incurred extraordinary expenses, and there will be more.
Some of these are one-time expenses, others are improvements to our school that will last for generations.
We are prepared for what is now and for what is next. But we need YOUR support.
Please join us in marking our 35th years as a community and support our annual fund with your gift. Every dollar will help cover COVID-related expenses.
Together, we will help our small school with a big neshama stay strong!
