Building the Senesh Mosaic: Lower School Grants Available for Jews of Color

Senesh is an open and inclusive Jewish Day School committed to the rich mosaic of Jewish life. As we build this mosaic, we strive to increase the representation of Jews of Color who have been underrepresented in our community and who would find a warm and welcoming Jewish home at Senesh. With this in mind, a grant has been established to invest in resources to enable more Jews of Color to attend the lower school at Senesh. Learn more about the grant on this page.
