Back To School Means
Changes At Day Schools

Local Jewish day schools are looking at increases in enrollment
and tuition.


espite increases in
tuition and closer
scrutiny of scholar-
ship recipients, De-
troit's five Jewish
day schools are set
to open this year
with a record num-
ber of students.
Hillel, Akiva, Ye-
shiva Beth Yehu-
dah-Bais Yaakov, Darchei Torah
and the Lubavitch cheder all ex-
pect an increase in enrollment,
with some schools reporting an
addition of more than 50 students.
Hillel is expecting 648 students,
up from 597; Akiva will have 310,
up six from last year; Beth
Yehudah anticipates 660 stu-
dents, up 10 from 1991-92;
Darchei Torah expects to increase
from 125 to about 150; and the
Lubavitch cheder projects 145 stu-
dents, up from 135.

the rabbi emerged, he took with him the secret
knowledge of the Zohar, hidden codes found
within Torah.
For centuries, the Kabbalah has remained vitu-
ally inaccessible. Today, ordinary Jews are
seeking the answers once reserved for the holi-
est of men.
