Statement on DeSean Jackson: The anti-Semitic comments displayed by DeSean Jackson on his instagram are deeply offensive and disturbing. These words have been used for centuries to support the vilification and extermination of Jews. As a representative of our city, we call on DeSean Jackson to stop spreading hate and bigotry and to become better educated about anti-Semitism.

Children in a Jewish day school classroom
We’re always learning, and we know you are, too. To help strengthen your — and your family’s — connection to your heritage through education, we offer scholarships and loans for day school and Hebrew school.

Funds are distributed directly to schools through a weighted, per-capita formula that accounts for the number of students enrolled, the grade level of the students and the capacity of the school to meet the total scholarship needs of its student body. Schools are responsible for determining need and distributing aid. For more information contact the school directly.
