We were challenged to raise $15,000 and we raised over $15,000. Really, though? What happened over Chanukah was – dare I say it? - miraculous. We began with a little less than $20,000 in our Shomray Torah Annual Campaign fund, and we were hoping to end the year with $50,000. As of today, our Shomray Torah Annual Campaign fund stands at over $70,000.00.
We began this challenge by saying that it takes a community to support a school. Over the course of One Match, you have shown us that Hebrew Academy – the Capital District’s community Jewish day school – is important to you, your family, and your community. You have shown us that you recognize the importance of a place where children from a wide variety of backgrounds representing different degrees of Jewish religious observance, involvement, and affiliation, can learn together in caring and nurturing environment that is steeped in Jewish values.
Thank you for helping to ensure that Hebrew Academy continues its work. We are ever mindful of your support, and we are ever grateful for your generosity.
