NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- New Rochelle's Beth El Synagogue Center is set to host the first Tri-State Area Jewish Day School and Yeshiva Fair on Sunday, April 6.
Bridging together all denominations of the Jewish community, 15 Jewish day schools and yeshivas from New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut will come together from noon to 2 p.m., for the event. The fair promises to highlight the full-time educational opportunities available in the local Jewish community.
The fair is jointly sponsored by Beth El Synagogue Center, The Partnership for Jewish Education, UJA-Federation of New York, and The Westchester Jewish Council.
“At a time when many see Jewish day schools and yeshivot in competition, this is a way for schools to collaborate in highlighting the importance of day school and yeshiva education and celebrating the diversity in educational choices. A meaningful, substantive, and engaging educational experience is critical to the vibrancy of the American Jewish community,” said Evan Levy, an organizer of the fair from Beth El Synagogue Center and the president-elect of Carmel Academy in Greenwich, one of the schools participating in the fair.
The participating schools include Bi-Cultural Day School (Stamford), Carmel Academy (Greenwich), Solomon Schechter School of Westchester (Hartsdale), Stein Yeshiva of Lincoln Park (Yonkers), Westchester Day School (Mamaroneck), Westchester Hebrew High School (Mamaroneck), Westchester Torah Academy (New Rochelle).
