Supporting Akiba-Schechter

For over 70 years, Akiba-Schechter Jewish Day School has provided an excellent secular and Judaic education to children on the south side of Chicago. Through the generous support of our community we are able to teach children, not subjects, develop innovative curricula, and joyfully perform Mitzvot and Chesed. Your gift will enable Akiba-Schechter to educate generations to come.

Thank you to our generous supporters

In 1972, Akiba South Side Jewish Day School and Solomon Schechter South Side School merged to become Akiba-Schechter Jewish Day School. Today, the '72 Society celebrates an incredible legacy of excellence in Jewish education on Chicago's South Side. An annual gift of $1,800 or more qualifies donors to be part of the '72 Society.
