Why Support Ilan Ramon Day School and Jewish Education

Why Support Ilan Ramon Day School and Jewish Education 

As we return from the chagim and settle into the next phase of the school year we turn our attention to some very important fundraising in our School. All Jewish Day Schools, all private schools, and even many public schools take on an annual giving campaign. In a few days you will receive a letter asking you to participate in this year’s campaign, and to give to the school.

Why make a gift to Ilan Ramon Day School? Most simply, because each gift makes an immediate and lasting difference — in the lives of students, families, the Jewish community and the greater world.

At Ilan Ramon Day School, we know firsthand the impact of a Jewish day school education. Recent studies from both Brandeis University and the Avi Chai Foundation show the lasting value of a Jewish day school education. Among the highlights:

  • Day-school graduates have high levels of academic success, exhibiting “significant advantages over their peers who are public- and independent-school graduates”
  • The curriculum’s emphasis on critical thinking, analytic skills and second-language instruction gives graduates an advantage in the modern world
  • Day-school alumni are committed to the needs of others; they volunteer and seek careers that benefit society

And perhaps most importantly,

  • Students who attend Ilan Ramon Day School develop a strong sense of Jewish identity and go on to “build meaningful Jewish lives.”

Working Together to Support Jewish Students

We believe all Jewish children deserve the benefits of a Jewish day school education and we work hard on their behalf. We also believe it to be a shared community responsibility.

Tuition alone does not cover the costs of the diverse and very rich education your children are receiving here each and every day. Your gift helps support the growth of our program, staff development, new educational initiatives and more.

Before your annual giving letter arrives in your mailbox, I ask you to think about why you chose Jewish education and why it is essential that each of you support our annual campaign.

I thank you in advance for your support of Ilan Ramon Day School and appreciate your thoughtfulness in making a commitment to our campaign this year.

Thank you,


A Jewish education is within your reach!
