"I support the Ma'ayan Alumni Campaign and joined the Lion’s Den because JDS helped shape me into the person I am today. My friendships, career trajectory, and personal growth can all be traced back to my time at JDS. It is of paramount importance to me that JDS continue to thrive so my children have the opportunities that I was provided. I hope all alumni will remember their time at JDS with fondness and join me in supporting the Ma'ayan Alumni Campaign."Zach Roth '10
Thank you for supporting the Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School. Our partnership with alumni is what enables CESJDS to be the extraordinary educational institution and community it has become. We are united by our shared Jewish values and history.
There are many ways that you can support our promise to produce graduates who emerge with the confidence, compassion, and knowledge to build a life infused with purpose and meaning. Through the lens of their personal Jewish identity, our alumni contribute to a vibrant, enduring future.
Ma'ayan Alumni Campaign
At Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School, our community is a Ma’ayan, a natural spring, where students, alumni, families, and faculty thrive, grow, and flourish together. As a student moves from Gurim through Grade 12 and beyond, our community creates ripples of learning, exploration, innovation, and connection grounded in Jewish values that flow into the larger world.
