The Partnership for Excellence in Jewish Education (PEJE), released a new issue of their bi-monthly webzine - Sustained! Viable Jewish Day Schools for an Enduring Future. This issue contains interesting materials to help ensure the continued vitality of Jewish day schools.

Among the pieces in this issue:

The top story, "2011: A Year of Extraordinary Giving" , profiles a small handful of schools that illustrate a positive trend in philanthropic support from key communal leaders and donors.

In "Challenge Award Lessons Learned". PEJE awardees share their hard-earned insights and recommendations, all of which can help your school achieve financial sustainability.

"Data-Driven Day Schools", presents data from the 2011 PEJE Challenge Award which shows that alumni, and their families, are an untapped market.

In "Kibbitz with Katz" Executive Director Amy Katz reminds us that, in this time of great possibility for the Jewish day school field, we must absorb the lessons demonstrated by Challenge Award applicants.

In the third and final episode of "A Case Study of Jewish Day School Leadership", there is a sense at the fictional Isaac Herzog Academy that people are ready to challenge themselves, hopefully with their sights set on the horizon.

The Virtual Assembly tells how you can employ virtual bridges to construct and maintain the long-term connections that ultimately lead to a successful fundraising program.
