from The Washington Post:

Prominent Jewish school receives largest gift to date

A Jewish elementary school in the District has been pledged a gift of $5 million in what area private educators are calling a hopeful sign for fundraising.

The Jewish Primary Day School of the Nation’s Capital, a 262-student school in Brightwood, announced Friday that it had been promised the gift, which is a mixture of outright gifts and a matching grant that will require the school to raise an additional $1.8 million on its own.
