The Day School Challenge Fund reflects UJA’s continued commitment to helping day schools reach and maintain affordability, financial stability, and educational excellence. The DSCF was the first-ever New York-area effort of its kind and includes 18 Jewish schools and yeshivot in the five boroughs, Long Island, and Westchester. Through this broad initiative, UJA helped to infuse $84 million into the day school landscape. We are very proud to support schools as they plan for the future and ensure a strong, engaged Jewish community tomorrow.
