Get Involved » Gala


The Jewish Academy of Orlando’s Annual Gala is our largest fundraiser of the year. These funds help support our academic programs and scholarship program. This event is a night for our parents, supporters and the community to come together and celebrate our school. With over 300 attendees each year, the gala is a celebration not to be missed! The event includes a cocktail hour, dinner and dancing plus silent and live auctions. This past event was themed as a "A Midsummer Night's Dream,” and the ballroom at the Hilton Orlando/Altamonte was completely transformed into a beautiful garden.

Each year members of the Jewish Academy of Orlando community are honored at the Gala. In 2017 we honored the past Horim U'Morim (HUM) presidents (the parent/teacher organization). "It was amazing to see parents who have given so much back to our community," said Alan Rusonik, Head of School. "These parents worked so hard to support our school. They deserved this honor.”

To further support Jewish education and your local Jewish day school, to get involved or for any questions, please contact Alan Rusonik, head of school, at 407-647-0713.
