Local philanthropy
will help Hillel gain
21st-century edge.

Keri Guten Cohen

Story Development Editor

hanks to generous local
philanthropic funding, Hillel
Day School of Metropolitan
Detroit will be well-positioned with
regard to some hot topics in the private
school world: affordability and retention,
and 21st-century school design.
In late January, the Farmington Hills
Jewish day school for grades preK-8
received two transformative gifts. One
will allow it to offer an innovative tuition
grant program aimed at middle-income
families and designed to reward loyalty.
The other gift will enable Hillel to
complete three phases of a dream plan
to create physical space that promotes
hands-on, student-driven learning.

Hillel teacher Becky Melamed works with Ellery Gnesin on her iPad while Caleb Starr works nearby. Two years ago,
students at Hillel began to receive iPads and laptops to aid in 21st-century learning.
