Turning a Catastrophe Into an Opportunity
"Out of the ashes of destruction will come the seeds for reconstruction."
—Rabbi Haskel Lookstein, July 12, 2011, the day after
This campaign is the attempt to realize that hope and dream.
The Ramaz School and Congregation Kehilath Jeshurun have worked together for seventy-five years to raise generations of Modern, Centrist Orthodox Jews, veering neither to the right nor to the left. We want to seize the moment to enhance our ability to serve our community with the best facilities and the most effective financial support.
Our ability to be successful will require extraordinary leadership and generosity from the entire community: including trustees, alumni, parents, grandparents and friends of Ramaz and KJ. If each of us does his or her best, we can complete this historic undertaking and realize our objectives.
A crisis presented us with an opportunity. If we seize that opportunity, we will greatly enhance the future of Ramaz and KJ for decades to come.
