Jewish Day Schools Celebrate Federation Week

Jewish day school students across Miami recently celebrated Federation Week, exploring the Jewish values of tzedakah (charity), gemilut chasadim (kindness) and tikkun olam (repairing the world), pillars around which Federation’s work is based. Last year, the Annual Greater Miami Jewish Federation/UJA Campaign allocated more than $5.5 million to Jewish education in our community, which included funding to help day schools remain strong during the pandemic and maintain the continuity of Jewish education in Miami. In a show of hakarat hatov (gratitude), 10 Federation-funded schools dedicated the week before Super Sunday 2022 to learning about the work of Federation and its impact in Miami and around the world.

Throughout the week, the schools engaged students in age-appropriate activities around three central Jewish values. Each school also received a banner with the theme for Federation Week prominently displayed: Kol Yisrael Arevim Ze La Ze – All of Israel is responsible for one another. They also received stickers for the students to put on their shirts as they arrived at school, as well as tzedakah boxes to raise money and contribute to this year’s Annual Federation/UJA Campaign.

Federation Week was a success for students, educators and parents alike. “I believe that if we start educating kids at this age and giving them opportunities to practice those values and experience initiatives like Federation Week, they will grow to become the best and most committed people to Federation in later years…” said Jodi Bruce, Head of School, Lehrman Community Day School.

Federation Week is part of the larger Federation/CAJE Day School Partnership Initiative. CAJE, the Center for the Advancement of Jewish Education, is a subsidiary of Federation.
