Rosh Hashanah Campaign 2019

September 18, 2019/18 Elul, 5779

Dear Friends of the Jewish Academy of Orlando,

It’s quite rewarding to get a call from a parent who just wants to share how happy her child is at JAO. We have so many new families experiencing the nurturing environment of Jewish Academy of Orlando. We have two Kindergarten classes and a new Transitional Kindergarten program.

 “My daughter loves her teacher!” 

“We are thrilled with the school!” 

“This is the first school where we truly felt that we were part of a community.” 

These are just some of the many positive comments that we are getting from our new parents and their children.

We also get thank you calls from families receiving tuition assistance. Those thank you calls should be going to you! Your ongoing support allows us to welcome more students who are eager to grow academically and spiritually. Thanks to you, we are fostering the Jewish leaders of tomorrow.

As you prepare for the New Year, we hope that you will join our school’s Rosh Hashanah appeal. An alumni day school family knows intimately the transformative power of a Jewish day school education and the day school’s critical role in our community. 

Our Jewish community needs a sustainable Jewish day school; our community needs Jewish Academy of Orlando.  

As we approach the New Year, we ask that you make a commitment to support our annual campaign by donating to this year’s Rosh Hashanah appeal. Our goal for the 2019 Rosh Hashanah appeal is $36,000.  Your gift…

… of $180 supports an experiential learning opportunity for our students

… of $500 supports a professional development opportunity for our faculty

…of $1,000 supports tuition assistance for one of our families who otherwise could not afford a Jewish day school education 

Our school would not exist without the generosity of our community, and we thank you in advance for your support. 

L’Shana Tova Tikatevu, may you have a happy New Year and may you be inscribed in the book of life for another year of learning and growing.
