Jewish day schools provide more than a formal Jewish education. They provide deep rooted values that last a lifetime, a strong sense of Jewish pride, and an immersive and content rich Jewish environment.

Prizmah sat down with dozens of Jewish day school alumni from a variety of geographic, denominational, and professional backgrounds to reflect on their day school experiences and speak to the critical values of Jewish day school education for our future. Follow our #JDSalumniproud campaign to hear how Jewish day schools have impacted generations of Jewish learners and leaders.
