Our Jewish Legacy

Fifty years ago, our community worked tirelessly to raise funds to build the Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School, which is like no other in the nation. Today, there are more than 3,000 CESJDS alumni who lead purpose-driven lives and engage the world through Jewish values. Now, in a similar fashion, we must raise funds to secure the education of our Jewish children for generations to come.

Campaign Goals

The Building Our Future Endowment Campaign, with a goal of $20 million, celebrates our shared Jewish tradition and desire to safeguard our core values. Endowment gifts will support:

  • Academic Excellence in General and Judaic Studies
  • Jewish Life and School Community
  • Accessibility

The Next Generation of Leaders

CESJDS delivers academic excellence to develop Jewish students who are our future leaders, influencers, and decision makers and has the distinction of serving as THE model Jewish day school in the United States. CESJDS goes beyond classroom academics – its immersive activities and pluralistic environment transform our children’s lives. CESJDS is a national treasure; our commitment to Jewish education and commitment to Israel assures Jewish continuity.
