“Having devoted much of my life to advancing Jewish education in Montreal, I know the importance of the middle income access fund for families who are struggling with the cost of Jewish education to be able to enrol and keep their children in our Jewish day schools. As President of a Jewish school, I recently received a beautiful phone call from a parent, which touched my heart. The mom of 3 current Jewish day school students said, ‘You cannot imagine the sense of relief my husband and I feel, knowing that the tuition for our children is frozen for the time that our children are in school. We can plan our family life without worrying whether we will have to revisit our decision to send our kids to Jewish school each and every year.’”
Over 650 children have benefitted from a Jewish day school education due to the support of Federation CJA’s Generations Fund CAPS program, which provides subsidies and tuition freezes for middle-income families.
