Subject: Recognizing May 5-11, 2024 as Jewish Day Schools Week
In the near future, we plan to introduce a resolution declaring the week of May 5 through May 11, 2024, as Jewish Day Schools Week in Pennsylvania.
In the face of rampant antisemitism, many Jewish families value Jewish days schools for offering a supportive community where children are nurtured, an environment that promotes Jewish values, and a quality education. Jewish education plays a unique role in the continued vitality of the American Jewish community.
Pennsylvania is currently home to over 400,000 Jewish residents and a historically high number of 32 Jewish day schools. Please join us in this effort to express appreciation and gratitude to Jewish Day Schools across this Commonwealth and bring awareness to the role Jewish Day Schools play in the lives of many children and families.
