The Jewish Theological Seminary of America
wishes to thank

MR. WILLIAM M. DAVIDSON

for his exceptionally generous and unprecedented
gift of $15 million to fund the creation of the

WILLIAM DAVIDSON GRADUATE
SCHOOL OF JEWISH EDUCATION

at the

Jewish Theological Seminary

The Graduate School of Jewish Education will be the largest and
most comprehensive of its kind, offering a fully accredited
doctorate of education in religious studies, in addition to Ph.D:
and M.A. programs.

The School is dedicated to creating a new class of professional
Jewish educators, supporting local Jewish education efforts
through the development of new teaching curricula and materials,
and conducting the most extensive academic research yet
undertaken in the field of Jewish education.

Mr. Davidson's gift underscores the urgent need for enriched
Jewish education in North America and recognizes that there can
be no shortcuts to securing Jewish continuity. Specifically, his gift
will form an endowment devoted entirely to supporting
programming by retaining current and adding additional, top-
flight faculty, providing scholarships and fellowships to the most
outstanding students, and funding research into improved
methods of Jewish education.

The Seminary, on behalf of the entire Jewish community, wishes
to extend its sincere thanks to Mr. Davidson for no less a feat than
making possible the revitalization of Jewish education in North
America.
