Milton Sheftel, Board Mentor
The concept of community is interwoven into the very fabric of Jewish culture. We Jews have survived for thousands of years in our own land as well as in the Diaspora, not simply as individuals, but through the strength of community. Our community’s vitality comes from a collaboration of individuals standing together as we nourish the roots of our community and flourish.
The Jewish Day School has been an essential part of this collaboration in our community for more than 60 years. We are gratified that the Federation, the Jewish Community Center, Jewish Family Service, the synagogues and the Rabbis and Cantors, recognize and affirm this concept of collaboration, mutual respect and support. Working together as collegial partners, we share in a wealth of knowledge and understanding , counseling and support, Yiddishkeit and tradition. Community leadership, generosity and commitment to education strengthens our entire community.
The importance of immersive Jewish education provided by day schools cannot be overstated. It is a key component in our robust inclusive Lehigh Valley Jewish community. The children we educate today are our future lay leaders, supporters and philanthropists. Our children are our greatest advocates for a Jewish Day School education.
