Jewish Education: Do We Want it? Can We Afford It?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Toronto is known for its decades of strong commitment to Jewish Education. A large number of our students are enrolled in Jewish Day Schools. But a crisis is brewing. Now only half of Jewish children are getting any Jewish education. Enrolments are now falling as middle-income families baulk at the high cost of tuition. If the Jewish education system collapses, who will be Jewish? Where will future leaders come from? Do parents want to invest in the value of Jewish education? And at what price? Grassroots for Jewish Education is testing solutions with parents. Hear about making Jewish education attractive and affordable.
