YULA Receives Endowment

West-Coast-logo

The Ronald and Ethel Gruen Endowed Fund for the Advancement of Secondary Jewish Education has awarded $20,000 to YULA Boys High School. As one of eight grant recipients, the funds are intended to either provide need-based scholarships to students or to support the school’s mechinah (beginners) programs. The gift will be administered through Yeshiva University’s Institute for University-School Partnership.

Founded in 2008, the YU School Partnership was created to ensure the excellence and sustainability of Jewish day schools. Its goal is to strengthen the schools through teacher recruitment and school leadership, as well as economic guidance and longevity.

The funding will not only provide necessary monetary allotments to deserving students who need it most, but will also be used toward modifying and strengthening the Judaic Studies Skills track, a course for students who receive individualized attention in their Judaic Studies courses. The revised aspects of the curriculum will include classes in Jewish History, Jewish Philosophy, Jewish Lifecycles and other topics that will enforce the strong educational opportunities that YULA Boys School offers to students from a variety of backgrounds.
