“My whole life has changed,” shares Gabriela, a young student who switched from public school to Mazel Day School in Brooklyn, NY last year. “I keep Shabbat, I go to synagogue. I am so happy to feel a part of my people.”

Hundreds of Jewish students expressed similar sentiments after the “Our Heritage” program of the Menachem Education Foundation (MEF) has enabled them to transfer from public schools to Chabad day schools.

Founded during the Covid pandemic’s school shutdown, the program provides $25,000 matching grants to Chabad day schools to enroll new Jewish public school students.
