Excellent Quote: I was privileged to attend the 1st annual TeachNJ Dinner this week. For those who may not be aware, TeachNJ was founded in 2015 to advocate for equitable government funding for New Jersey’s nonpublic schools. They have secured an additional $100 million in funding for day schools, which is used to increase security, enhance education and defray higher tuition costs. Approximately 170 day-schools and yeshivas receive support through Teach NJ efforts. Teach NJ is supported by a collaboration of schools, synagogues, volunteers, and, most notably, the Jewish Federation of Northern NJ and the Orthodox Union. We are so proud that our dear friend Sam Moed is the President of this important organization. Sam presented awards recognizing members of other faith communities who are involved with TeachNJ. Just before posing for the picture, Sam commented “this is what a big tent looks like.” I couldn’t agree more. 

To learn more visit TeachNJ and make sure to take note of the other members of our community who are involved in leading this critical effort.
