Jewish day schools give our children a deep under-
standing of Israel's importance. In Jewish day
schools, Israel is not taught as a history or social
studies lesson, but as central to our lives as Jews.
Students learn that Israel is 'a national homeland
for all Jews, a sovereign Jewish state with an
effective army committed to protecting it, a historic
and current center of Torah study, and the sole
democracy in the Middle East. More than anything,
our children develop a sense of kinship with their
Israeli brothers and sisters.
The AVI CHAT Foundation is a proud supporter
of the Jewish day schools listed on this page, and
we are gratified that these schools in your area are
showing their support for Israel in the classroom.
These schools endorse the following statement as an
expression of their philosophy:
"The creation of the State of Israel is one of the seminal
events in Jewish history. Recognizing the significance of the
State and its national institutions, we seek to instill in our
students an attachment to the State of Israel as well as a
sense of responsibility for its welfare."*
In today's difficult times, Israel needs all of our
support. Now is the time for us to stand behind
Israel in the classroom, in our thoughts, and in
*All the listed schools have agreed on the significance of the State of Israel and of its national institutions,
although, as in every democracy, not every school agrees with all of the policies and decisions of the institutions.
