Schechter School Network Receives $2m. in New Grants

The Schechter Day School Network and United Synagogue have been awarded nearly $2 million in grants that will allow the day school network to dramatically enhance its ability to strengthen North America’s 43 Schechter schools.

The grants include nearly $1.7 million in funding from the Avi Chai Foundation for capacity building and programming, and a substantial challenge grant from an anonymous foundation.

The United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism (USCJ) will remain for the immediate future the institutional home of the Schechter Network, which is pursuing separate incorporation as a not-for-profit organization. USCJ has pledged continued financial support for Schechter and advocacy for day school education as part of its Learning Department’s multi-pronged program initiatives.
