We are delighted to share that The Covenant Foundation has approved an $85,000 grant to Hebrew at the Center for Pritzat Derech: Ensuring Students with Language-Based Learning Disabilities Break Through to a Positive Hebrew Journey. The Pritzat Derech initiative is a collaboration of Gateways, Hebrew at the Center, MaDYK, Prizmah, and Shefa, with discovery phase funding by Lippman Kanfer Family Foundation, and is designed to take a systemic approach to understanding how to support Jewish day school and yeshiva students with dyslexia on their Hebrew journeys, and to imagine a scalable solution that works to ensure these students and their families get what they need to remain within our schools.
The Covenant Foundation, long known for setting the highest standard for quality and innovation Jewish educational efforts through its philanthropic investments and leadership, works to strengthen educational endeavors that perpetuate the identity, continuity, and heritage of the Jewish people. The Foundation believes those with the creativity and passion to be catalysts for change and innovation in Jewish education are worthy of recognition and support. Having their “stamp of approval” with this generous grant helps signal to the Jewish educational community that Hebrew at the Center and its partners are doing important, critical work and sheds further light on the challenge students with dyslexia face and the centrality of Hebrew learning to a strong Jewish community.
