Jewish education has and always been a major priority of the Jewish people worldwide. Stories abound about the supernatural commitment that Jews made over the centuries to insure that their children would grow into Torah true Jews. How can we ensure the continued survival of the Jewish people? Enter Chinuch Yehudi! Chinuch Yehudi was founded in 2016 to aid Israeli families, residing in the state of Florida, provide their children a Jewish day school education. Since then, we have expanded to Nevada and are currently in the process of rolling out our program in additional areas. Over the last twenty years, there has been phenomenal growth of the Israeli population in Florida.(see graph )Unfortunately, many of the children of these families are assimilating rapidly into the society at large and have no connection to their Jewish heritage.In many cases, Israeli parents not only understand the need to give their children a Jewish education but are happy to send their children to a day school as they provide their American born children a connection to the Israeli lifestyle of their origins.But for many, day school education is financially unaffordable
Chinuch Yehudi will address these issues in the following manner:
-It will educate parents of the critical importance of their kids having a proper Jewish education. -It will utilize the following resources to make day school education affordable.
- Florida’s Step Up Tax Credit Scholarship program,giving financial assistance for private school education
- Jewish organizations,which help parents carry the cost of day school education
- Scholarships from the local day schools
- Chinuch Yehudi’s tuition assistance program
Once these children are enrolled in a day school, the process of integrating these children into text based reading of Chumash and Navi will be almost seamless, as these children are already familiar with the Hebrew language.
Every Jewish child should have access to a Jewish education.Partner with us and help us make this dream a reality!
