JKHA/RKYHS Affordability Initiatives

BUILDING FOUNDATIONS FOR OUR FUTURE

 בונים יסודות לעתידנו

At JKHA/RKYHS, we believe that Jewish education is not only an essential birthright for every Jewish child, but crucial to BUILDING the next generation of Jewish leaders. By laying the FOUNDATIONS of a robust Jewish heritage, nurtured in a Torah-centered environment of well-rounded academic excellence, we are preparing the next generation to pass on the torch of our traditions, FOR OUR FUTURE as Am Yisrael.

The 2013 Pew Study on Jewish American life recognized that Jewish day school education is the single most influential factor for instilling Jewish identity. At the same time, in our own community, a Greater MetroWest Federation poll identified affordability as the greatest challenge for families seeking a Jewish education.

 

Rashi explains that at the beginning of Parshat Mishpatim, it is made clear that Moshe Rabeinu’s task was not simply to transmit the Torah to Bnai Yisrael, but rather to make the Torah accessible to the people. In this spirit, JKHA/RKYHS is committed to providing the best Jewish day school experience possible by offering academic excellence and Torah-centered education while partnering with our families to ensure accessibility for all. 

 

To help strengthen this partnership and highlight our school’s commitment to affordability and growth, we have created a triad of innovative and generous affordability initiatives. These programs are designed to meet the needs of our families, stimulate growth in our community and school, and ensure that every child is offered an outstanding Jewish education.

Our three-fold approach to affordability includes the following new or enhanced programs:

בונים/BUILDING

Community Growth Incentive: We are offering a generous incentive designed to stimulate growth, strengthen our communities, and enhance our robust and thriving school. This program is available to new families who move into the surrounding communities, in partnership with local Orthodox synagogues. The בונים/BONIM Community Growth Incentive will create additional enrollment while building the vibrancy of our communities.

 

יסודות/FOUNDATIONS

Middle Income Affordability: This innovative new initiative, was developed to strengthen the partnership between our school and our families. If qualifying, the program features automatic enrollment that assesses tuition cost as an affordable percentage of a family’s income. In addition, it allows families to plan their financial future and education-related costs with greater certainty. We believe that infusing Jewish children with a quality Jewish education is essential to establishing  יסודות/FOUNDATIONS for the future. 

 

לעתידנו/FOR OUR FUTURE 

Financial Assistance: Our Financial Assistance Program follows the traditional model of tuition aid, based on demonstrated need by each individual family.

We are proud to launch the L’Atidenu Financial Assistance Endowment Campaign. This initiative will build a robust endowment fund to provide a sustainable reserve supporting our Financial Assistance program, ensuring the accessibility of our school’s Jewish education לעתידנו/FOR OUR FUTURE.

 

We look forward to partnering with you to help build your family’s next generation of Jewish leaders.
