The Partnership for Excellence in Jewish Education (PEJE), which aims to help day schools in facing multiple challenges around tuition, affordability, and the middle-class squeeze; about enrollment, attrition, and fundraising in the 21st century, has launched a new webzine. Sustained! Viable Jewish Day Schools for an Enduring Future is a bi-monthly resource for day school professionals and volunteer leaders with content that includes best practices, cutting-edge tools, resources and data, programs that make a difference, and practical advice. Sustained! is a new sort of PEJE publication, incorporating video, a social media column and even illustrated case studies.
The top story of the inaugural edition focuses on PEJE’s “Generations” program—a nationwide pilot program that builds financial capacity through endowment and legacy giving. Other features include a video on the multifaceted nature of financial sustainability, a talk on the essential role a head of school must play in advancement, and an introduction to Gail Norry, one of PEJE's new board members.
