PROFOUND THANKS TO OUR GENEROUS 2020-2021 DONORS

Dear Heschel Community,

I hope your school year is off to a great start. We are so excited that Heschel students and teachers are back in school with their characteristic high energy and engagement. Co-curricular clubs and activities are up and running, sports teams are competing, children are singing, and our community—having supported each other through the trials of the pandemic—is beginning to gather again.

Last year was an extraordinary year. Despite the challenges, our gifted faculty and staff focused on the development of the whole child, supporting each student’s intellectual, emotional, social, physical, and spiritual growth. Our courageous and resilient students participated with curiosity, creativity, and kindness. And our community not only stayed intact, but it also grew stronger. This is all a tribute to our extraordinary faculty, staff, and administrators; our Heschel families; and our generous donors. 

Because of the pandemic, our costs were significantly higher last year than in prior years. We invested in building safety and security, educational technology, health and hygiene, and personnel. This year also presents unique challenges, as the pandemic and its uncertainties continue. In addition, amidst these challenging times, our families’ financial aid needs have increased. 

Heschel’s Annual Campaign provides critical funds needed to continue to attract and retain the very best faculty and staff, to stay on the leading edge of academic and co-curricular programming, and to sustain our pluralistic and talented student body. 

This campaign year, we are focusing on participation. Your gift, no matter the size, will have an immediate impact and help build our community. Heschel’s theme this year is Olam Hesed Yibaneh, translated by our High School students as: “We (re)build our world through Hesed/kindness.” One thing that we learned last year is that every single person has a role to play in building and rebuilding our community, and your participation in this campaign matters.

Please join me and make your gift by clicking the “Support Heschel Today” button below. We are grateful to all individual donors—parents, grandparents, alumni, parents of alumni, faculty, staff, and friends—who have supported Heschel in the past and who will continue to do so this year. 

Many thanks for your kind consideration.
