Nominate a Rising Kindergartener or 1st Grader for a Jewish Day School Scholarship

By Rabbi Arnowitz

Many of you know that the cost of a Jewish Day School is significant. Indeed, there have been families who may have chosen to send their children to one of the outstanding Jewish Day Schools in our area but for the tuition.

While WJC takes great pride in our own Religious School, we also believe that our synagogue should be the spiritual home to Jewish Day School families. As an expression of that commitment, we are pleased to announce a Jewish Day School Scholarship Program for members of WJC.

Through the generosity of deeply dedicated people, we are offering scholarship grants to fund one-half of the annual tuition and fees for each child enrolling in Kindergarten or 1st Grade in any of our outstanding area Jewish Day Schools up to $12,500 of the cost of enrollment for each child.

No financial records need ever be shared for the award of these scholarship grants and funding will be available in addition to any tuition assistance or other scholarship grants provided by your child’s school. Our hope is that recipient families will give back to our WJC community by actively participating in the spiritual life of the Center so as to support and enrich the educational experience of the children.

While these scholarship grants are currently available for Kindergarten and First Grade, as we move forward with the program, we hope to be able to provide assistance in other Jewish Day School grades as will be needed. If you are interested in applying for a Jewish Day School Scholarship, please contact Rabbi Arnowitz at

We are all deeply grateful to the benefactors of this scholarship program.
