JTS Receives a $2.67 Million Grant From the Avi Chai Foundation

NEW YORK — The Jewish Theological Seminary received a $2.67 million grant from the Avi Chai Foundation to implement its strategic plan at the William Davidson Graduate School of Jewish Education.

JTS announced the funding this week for a Davidson School plan that includes providing resources to U.S. Jewish day schools, educators and leaders in Jewish education, as well as increasing its organizational capacity. The school also plans to engage in the research of educational techniques and technology.

The Avi Chai grant represents half of what the Davidson School hopes to raise for its strategic planning, JTS said in a statement. Avi Chai also has committed to support the Davidson School’s field programs until 2020.

The Davidson School provides graduate degrees in Jewish education and professional development opportunities for educators.
