Home Testimonial

Our founder, William Davidson, understood the lifelong impact Jewish education can have on an individual and a community. Mr. Davidson supported various causes for many decades, including those that benefited individual Jewish day schools and communities, as well as larger opportunities to professionalize the field of Jewish education.  This grant—to understand how to attract and retain the best educators—positions us to expand upon his vision.
